Complete Look (LookBook)

[Note] I have not perfected a good way to take pictures, so please bare with me. I'm trying :(( 

Nails of the Day (NOTD)

At first I didn't know what to think about this color against my skin but lately it's been growing on me and I'm liking it more and more. 

Outfit of the Day (OOTD)

Just an easy day, going out to lunch. It's pretty chilly out so I counter acted the light flowy top and leggings with a long thick open cardigan. You may choose to pair this look with tall boots if you prefer, but I opted for combat boots (not shown).

Face of the Day (FOTD)

Nothing special here just my everyday look. The only things difference here is the addition of mascara and lip color. Usually I wouldn't wear mascara, but when I have the time ill add a bit to my lashes. It definitely makes a difference and helps to open your eyes and help you look more awake. With lip color I switch it up from time to time, but in this case I've been loving the combination of mixing two colors, it contracts nicely along my skin tone and compliments nicely together.

Until next time, I wish everyone happy holidays!!

Blackheads No More

keep the blackheads away!

Much like others out there I am forever cursed with large pores and  blackheads. I unfortunately am not blessed with gorgeous skin. But I've found a method I feel worth mentioning. This has worked amazingly for me and I hope it will work out for you too ^~^
I'm somewhat open to trying new products, but at times I have my doubts. What can I say I'm skeptical when it comes to skincare products that claim to do so much, especially if they're high end products. Somehow I feel less guilty when it comes to trying out new products that aren't that expensive.   I admit I'm the impatient type when it comes to seeing results. But when I have enough dedication to stick to a new product I am quite surprised at times. I've been trying this method for I'd say a good few weeks now, almost a month and have been loving and noticing a big difference in my skin.


The combination of using my Clarisonic Mia along with SKII Clearing Lotion works miracles ! ok maybe im over exaggerating a bit, but this stuff seriously works!

Before i used Skinfood's Hot Sesame Mask to help open my pores and washout all the blackheads which did work and there where no blackheads to be found, sad to say the feeling was short lived. Because I only use the mask maybe once to twice a week after 2 days of using the mask blackheads would appear again. To me I will still use the mask, but I consider it to be a temporary fix, nothing permeant. But don't get me wrong, it's still a nice mask to do maybe once a week or in my case whenever I feel like I want to open my pores for an even deeper clean, but for now I'll stick to my daily  method.
I've been blackhead free for almost a month now, and for a person who struggles with blackheads through their life this is such a great achievement!

If you would like more tips and tricks when it comes to skincare let me know.
Until next time <3 ^~^
