Not long ago I promised to incorporate frequent washing into my regimen to reap all the benefits that come along with it.  Even though I knew this was the right decision, I still hesitated.  Why? Because deep down I dreaded the thought of enduring the most dreaded part of my wash day --detangling.

You see, I rarely use a comb or brush in between washes.  This means that I have my work cut out for me on wash day.  In the past, I had the support of my trusted double row Conair detangling comb.  But, after it lost a few of its teeth, that comb was no longer of any use.  Once I learned that Conair discontinued that comb, I lost all hope.

But, today is a new day. And, today, I'm here to spread the good news of a new detangling comb that has restored my faith in wash days again.

The warmer it gets, the more anxious I become about how summer is going to affect my skin.  Not only do I have to worry about congestion and breakouts, I also have to contend with oil skin.  Breakouts, while frustrating, are at least somewhat manageable.  But oily skin seemed so uncontrollable.

Or so I thought....

That's until I was introduced to a makeup artist secret technique that might change everything.

Now that we're spending more time at home than ever, many of us have traded our normal articles of clothing for more comfortable attire. I've seen a few online boutiques send out emails urging us to grab some loungewear outfits to ride out this quarantine.  Before you pick up more sweats and flannels, I want to offer loungewear inspiration ideas that are comfortable and super cute.

Sometime last year, my husband and I made a quick list of all the places we planned on visiting in 2020.  On Jan 1, 2020, we booked our first escapade which was supposed to take place in April.  Obviously, the trip didn't happen.  And neither will the other vacations we talked about.  Ultimately, we've accepted the fact that we probably won't travel for at least a year or two.

At first, I was really bummed.  But then I had a random thought that completely changed my thinking....vacations are great for a multitude of reasons, but they're expensive.  We would have spent thousands on flights, room & board, food, etc.  That money can now serve a new purpose.  If allocated properly, that money could be utilized to create something new.

Lately, I've had a few conversations with ladies who've chosen to make the most of this mandatory time at home.  There's already talk of certain states opening back up in the near future.  There's no telling when we'll have the opportunity again to have unlimited time to work on ourselves with very little distractions.

Who knows how things will be in 1 or 2 months from now.  There's no better time to start a 30-day challenge than this exact moment.   Allow me to share a few ideas o various 30-Day Challenge ideas to master in the upcoming weeks.

Although I've been aware of the Law of Attraction for over a decade, I've only really put it into daily practice fairly recently.  If you study the principles of LOA, you're pretty aware that there are several techniques that most people utilize.

I'm sure that many of you are familiar with vision boards, journaling, visualization, etc.  All of those techniques can create decent results, but I'm here to introduce you to a specific method that I've used successfully for a while now.  It works so well that it's become my primary LAO strategy.  Hopefully, this method will produce spectacular results for you as well.

If you asked me if I set specific goals for 2020, I would proudly answer "yes!"   But if you asked a follow-up question of whether I had a clear vision of the outcome of each of my goals, I'd remain silent.

Truth be told, aside from writing down and reviewing my goals, I neglect to take the next step necessary to ignite the reality creation process.  My mind doesn't have a clear image of what my goals actually look like in reality.   This image is crucial because it acts as a compass to guide you in the direction you need to go.

During this quarantine, a lot of people have challenged themselves to acquire a new skill/habit.  If that's something you want to do, I encourage you to consider adopting creative visualization as an easy habit to implement.

Depending on where you live, you're probably a few weeks into #quarantinelife

How's your skin holding up?

If your skin is anything like mine, you probably noticed a slight decline in the health and vibrancy.   That's probably because staying at home all day causes us to be slightly less regimented when it comes to our skin routine.  For instance, if I'm going to a gathering or headed to date night, I put in a bit more effort to bring out my best glow.

But if I don't have to present myself publicly, I know I can get by with less.  Before I know it, my skin gets congested and things start to go south.  One observation I've made lately is how some of the ladies I follow really have amazingly healthy skin.  I'm seeing a lot of them without makeup and I must say that I'm impressed.

They've helped remind me that vibrant skin should be a norm (even when you're sitting at home with no-where to go).  My skin can definitely benefit from a little boost, so I've decided to reinstitute a habit that is pretty much guaranteed to turn everything around.

Recently, Love Is Blind star, Lauren Speed, posted a giveaway on her feed featuring a facial device that her fans have been asking her about.  Apparently, she featured the device in her stories and got a ton of questions and comments in response.  Because of the incredible demand, she decided to host a  giveaway.  Lauren has amazing skin so I understand why everyone was dying to know about her skin secrets.

As soon as I saw an image of her favorite beauty device, I wanted one.  A quick search was all it took for me to discover the exact brand so I grab one for myself.
