Tis the time of year when we start to notice a shift in the types of beverages we consume.  Instead of reaching ice cold water, our cravings are leaning towards warmer, more festive drinks.

Last fall, I really got into drinking a lot of tea.  I also developed a love for warm matcha lattes.  There's a slew of benefits associated with drinking matcha tea but I recently learned of another benefit that might convince me to become a daily matcha drinker.

Last year, I connected with a PR agency that sent me a bunch of products from the Body Shop.  I hadn't used Body Shop products in years so it was nice to get reacquainted.  The first set of gifts I received were a wide range of masks.  That was when I was first introduced to their Himalayan Charcoal mask which, in my opinion, is the perfect GlamGlow dupe.

Their masks were incredible but I wasn't expecting to fall completely in love with their vitamin C sunscreen.  It was the only sunscreen I owned that made my skin look better.  Once I squeezed the last bit of product from that tube, I immediately rushed to replace it.  Little did I know that the rest of their vitamin C line would completely steal my heart.

We're close to entering the last 60 days of the year.  This is the perfect time to do a little reflection on those goals that we set months ago.  Two months is more than enough time to get hyperfocused and make huge progress on manifesting our intentions.

But, in order to make up for lost time, we have to utilize a certain strategy.  This strategy, when applied properly, can completely change everything.

Months ago, I walked into Sephora with one plan in mind...to find the perfect skin highlighter that would give me the most natural glow.  My current collection of highlighters all have some type of golden tint.  The product I wanted would contain no glitter or shimmery hue.  What I had in mind was a product that would replicate the look of dewy skin.

Before walking in, I said a silent prayer to myself in hopes that the sales rep would know exactly what I wanted.  The first person I spoke to was no help.  Lucky for me, she enlisted the help of a peer who led me to the product of my dreams.

Fridays are the best part of the week.  What makes them so great is their association with a potentially awesome weekend.  You're off for two days and you have complete freedom over the next 48 hours.  Friday is the perfect time to make plans....better yet, Fridays are perfect for setting intentions.

The reason why we want to be intentional is because those 48 hours will fly by.  On Sunday night, you want to feel refreshed & rejuvenated before the start of the new week.  Let's talk about how to do that.

I was scrolling through my phone, checking out old pics, when I came across some screenshots I captured from Leomie Anderson's IG story.  I hadn't seen these pics in a while and I was once again blown away by how flawless her skin was. 

As I zoomed into the pictures for a closer look, I was absolutely astounded by how poreless her skin was.  Not one flaw in sight.

Of course, the next thought that came to mind to dissect her skincare routine.  As luck would have it, there are at least two videos online detailing her skin reggie.  Years ago, before becoming a Victoria Secret Angel,  Leomie shared a skin favorites video on her little known YouTube channel.  The most recent video has a much higher production value but her regimen has pretty much stayed the same.

After analyzing her skin routine, I realize that her perfect skin isn't really just a result of hitting the genetics jackpot.  She uses a few specific products that work hard for her skin.

Happy Monday! Ready to start a new week?  Today marks the beginning of a new month but chances are that not much has changed in your life from last month and the one prior.  I can say this with confidence because I believe that most of us (including myself)  are operating in a state of mediocrity. 

That statement might offend some folks.  But, if you fully digested this message, you would probably agree with me.  When most of us think of the word mediocrity, we often associate it with a negative connotation.  It's viewed so negatively that we rarely think of our lives as mediocre.  I'm here to explain why & how you are living a mediocre life and exactly how to break free of it.
