The wonder product

 

There are so many products out there for your hair and your face and your skin. Each product is filled with tons of chemicals, and while most are healthy, they can also cause allergic reactions or just not mesh well with your body.

My favorite product, also happens to be the most commonly found things in drug stores, Vaseline! I started out just using it for my lips, but I soon realized how beneficial it is for the rest of your face as well.

Vaseline is 100% petroleum jelly, a moisturizing, non-comedogenic substance. This means it heals your chapped skin without clogging your pores.

Uses:

Chapped lips, slide it on like lip balm when you go to sleep or even put it on top of your lipstick to add moisture and shine

Eyelashes: use you finger or a clean mascara wand to apply a thin layer to your lashes. It makes your lashes thicker, fuller, and stronger. Just be gentle when you take it off and be sure not to put any vaseline directly into your eyes.

Acne: dab vaseline onto existing zits and on acne scars and blemishes. The moisturizing quality of the petroleum jelly allows skin to heal faster and acts as a guard on your skin so more dirt and oil can’t get into the zit.

Remove makeup: I would not recommend using vaseline as your main makeup remover. I usually use it to take off eye makeup if I forget to take it off before I shower or if I accidentally sleep with makeup on. Lightly spread vaseline over the already loosened/smudged makeup and wipe it away with a washcloth or tissue.

There are so many other uses for vaseline, these are just the ones I personally have tried.

Thin Mint Frappucino

Spring brings a whole bunch of opportunities to go outside and try new stuff. One of my favorite things is to just sit out and relax with friends, this often includes food and snacks. Starbucks is one of the largest coffee brands in the world and takes advantage of the spring weather to create new funky drinks.

Chocolate with mint is my absolute favorite combination so naturally I was PUMPED when I heard about the Thin Mint frappucino. There was a bit of a whipped cream overload but I could definitely taste both the mint and the chocolate.

The secret Starbucks menu has so many cool options for drinks and I really want to try a bunch out. I was a little worried about having to ask barristas to make me specialty drinks, but my friend who works at Starbucks said that as long as you’re respectful and there isn’t a huge line, any barrista would be happy to help out.

Spring photo shoot

The other weekend Sarah and I went to some local parks and took some pictures to celebrate Spring and the warm weather. We looked for flowers and good lighting to make the pictures more interesting and we each chose 2 outfits. It’s still early in spring so we didn’t get as much nature in the shots as we originally wanted, but I think the pictures still turned out really well!

Shirt: Mudd at Kohl’s

Leggings: Garage

Shirt: American Eagle

Jeans: American Eagle

Shirt: vintage

Skirt: Pacsun

 

Dress: cotton on

We took tons more and I love all of them but this post would be about 10 pages long if I posted all the pictures so I figured it was best to just show off my favorites.

Xoxo,
