Back to Basics with Honey

During a recent road trip, my choice of reading was very informative and led to a lifestyle change. While the changes were small, with me taking baby steps, the results were very clear. The book is called "The Clear Skin Diet" written by Alan C. Logan. If you are having issues with your skin, I highly recommend this book.

Reading this book has me reevaluating everything I put in my body as well as on it. I began a back to basics approach.

Researching as much as I could, I began to use honey as my morning facial cleanser. I bought Trader Joe's Organic Raw Honey because its honey in its most natural form. I chose to use it in morning because that's when my face doesn't need a good washing. I found that the honey was easy to spread. I leave it on my face for about 5-10 mins and then wash it off. Immediately I noticed my skin looked brighter and felt softer.

Benefits of Using Honey:
has anitbacterial properties (which aids in healing and preventing acne)
cleanses skin without stripping or drying
natural with no artificial ingredients or chemicals

I highly recommend googling honey as a facial cleanser. Very interesting information.


  1. Wow! That's nice. You just used honey and that's it? Did you combine it with a cleanser?

    1. I just use the honey straight from the jar, no cleanser. The one from Trader Joe's spreads nicely. You could use it as a mask weekly instead. :)

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99

I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99

Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:
As promised here are some swatches:

What is Your Favorite Red Lipstick?

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.

I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
