5 steps to having silky smooth legs

Ok so having smooth soft legs is major goals whether we shave our legs or not. And if you’re like me and shave you want to have smoother legs in between shaving because HELLO! IM A MOM and aint no body got time to be shaving every single week you know. I mean am I right or AM I RIGHT? LOL!! So here are my top 5 steps to having silkier, smoother legs longer…

STEP 1: E X F O L I A T E

DID YOU KNOW?- That dead surface skin can be the cause of your legs to feel rough so when you use something to slough away the cells it really makes a difference. My go to body scrub is Tree Hut Moroccan rose shea sugar scrub. It smells amazing and leaves your skin feeling baby smooth!

STEP 2: U S E A G E N T L E B O D Y W A S H

Before I shave, I always use Lovers Care Goat’s milk shower cream. It has hydrating properties and is formulated with almond oil and cocoa butter which will give your skin a boost of moisture as it cleanses.

STEP 3: U S E A S H A V I N G C R E A M

Ok so this is probably the most important step. The product you use when you shave. It’s completely different from using soap as soap can be extremely drying. However a shaving cream is formulated to reduce the friction between the razor and the skin. I love the Billie shave cream. It sticks to your skin extremely well and allows for a smooth shave.

STEP 4: U S E A G O O D R A Z O R

Now not all razors are the same! Some are made with moisture strips which help reduce irritation to the skin. So choosing a great quality razor makes a huge difference in the end result to having the smoothest legs possible. I LOVE LOVE the Billie razors because they are encased in a charcoal soap for a smoother and closer shave. I legit had to shave weekly and ever since I started using the Billie razor Ive noticed that my hair doesnt start growing back until after a full week and a half.

STEP 5: U S E A B O D Y C R E A M O R O I L

So after exfoliating and shaving you need to make sure your skin receives as much hydration after as possible. I really love Billie Dry bye body lotion because it is specifically designed for that! I also love how weightless and matte it dries. Leaving skin hydrated and yet it doesn’t feel like there is any residue left so when you lay on your sheets you dont have that sticky nasty feeling…. SCORE!!

I got lash extensions: How I clean them & take my make up off

SURPRISE!! So I recently got lash extensions, now that I have drastically grown out my lashes with my fave Lash growth serum my lashes are strong enough and long enough to hold lash extensions. Now I’ve had them before and loved how easy and fun they are. They make getting ready so much faster! I used to offer them as a service at my salon and was always asked by clients how to clean and keep them up. Which leaves me to believe that many don’t know how to clean them. If you do get lash extensions obvi your lash tech should tell you how to maintain and clean them. But as a beauty professional myself for many years now I know that by simply explaining something is not the same as showing or actually recommending products. So I thought todays post would be great to tell how I clean them and over all how I take my makeup off with lash extensions on.

First things first, the whole reason why there is a certain way lash extensions should be cleaned is because certain products can break down the adhesive that holds the extension in place faster then others. Cyanoacrylate is the main ingredient in lash extension adhesives and is considered a polar molecule. Polar molecules are broken down by other polar molecules. So the same can be said about non polar molecules. There are so many cosmetics on the market that contain both but the ones that contain more more polar molecules should be avoided in order to preserve the life of the extension. Makeup that comes in direct contact with your lashes like eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow and makeup removers need to be chosen wisely and most definitely should not contain oil that will break down the lash extension adhesive. And if they should contain a slight amount then you should try to keep it away from the eye area. One of my skincare products contain a type of oil so when I apply at night I make sure not to apply any around my entire eye area.

First I take a BILLIE WONDER WIPE to take off most of the makeup. These wipes are soo amazing they are part of my My Holy Grail: Skincare Edition. It is basically like having an entire skincare routine in one single wipe! They are plant based super thick wipes that come soaked in a gentle blend of cleansers that lift makeup, dirt, oil, glitter and everything else. The wipes are infused with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C serums. Both very important ingredients to use in your skin care regimen on a regular basis.

Second I take the MAELOVE REFRESHER CLEANSER to clean away any left over makeup. This face wash uses a triple blend of AHAs to thoroughly clean and revitalize skin. Its great too because its formulated for even the most sensitive skin and gentle enough to use multiple times a day. It has a nice peppermint and spearmint smell to it also that is just so revitalizing. I rinse with water then wipe clean with a towel. Then I clean around my eyelids and lash line very carefully removing any dirt or built up residue. (For deep cleaning, which I do once a week I use baby shampoo to clean my lashes)

Third I still apply my DIME BEAUTY LASH SERUM. I do this to keep my natural lashes healthy and strong. This serum is so amazing and is the reason I am able to even wear lash extensions. I grew out my natural lashes in 8 weeks and did a full blog post HERE.

Next I continue with my regular skincare routine. FULL details are listed HERE.

I love this routine and have been using it for several months and will contginue to do so. Im very happy with the way it has changed my skin overall. I always say that its not really what you use its how you use it. So even the lower end skincare will get you results as long as you use it regularly!

4 ideas to contribute to your self-care

1. Bubble bath

Bubble baths can be so relaxing. Don’t underestimate the power of one. Add a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil or my personal fave Dr. Teals pure epson salt soaking solution. Grab a good book, a glass of wine and some candles and enjoy!

2. Eat Healthy

When you eat healthy you feel great, which overall contributes to your physical well being. I know cooking and preparing healthy meals can be time consuming and just stressful. I have found that using Home Chef provides quality meals made simple. They are delivered straight to your door and always come fresh! You can read about my very first experience with Home Chef Here and one of my absolute fave recipes from them is Here.

3. Skin Care

Again I truly believe and have always said when you look good you feel good. It goes hand in hand. A good skin care routine can do wonders on your mental health. Your skin looking and feeling its greatest will shine thru and boost your confidence like no-ones business. Lol. My current skincare routine has done exactly that and I have received more compliments about my skin now then I ever did wearing a full face of makeup! You can check out my full skin care routine Here, my holy grail skincare edition Here and my 6 steps to a fresh face morning routine Here.

4. Meditate and stay positive

Taking time out of your schedule be it early in the morning or late at night contribute to your mental and overall health. It relieves stress levels and gives you that time to focus on what YOU personally need as an individual, Not you the mom, or you the wife, or you the teacher. Just YOU. Sometimes it can be hard. I know I personally still struggle sometimes. I wrote a post that talks about 4 things you can do to have a positive mindset Here and 5 tips that will help you stay positive when everything you see and hear is negative Here.

Whether you do all four, a few or some of your own. Self care is vital to practice in our every day life. It contributes to our mental health, and makes you focus on your most valuable player… YOU. I hope you all have a great weekend, stay safe and thanks for stopping by! Until next time…

3 things that help you become a morning person!

Goooooood mooooorning!!! Bwuahahahaha. Ok I cant even tell you how many times I get “I wish I was a morning person like you” on a daily basis on Instagram! And trust me because I am a mom, I KNOW the struggle is more real then the Corona virus ok. Sometimes you just don’t want to get up and be productive or do alllll of the things. I have been there. But I can tell you more often then not every👏🏾single👏🏾time I just stay in bed and do nothing. I feel like crap.

I will be honest and say I naturally am a morning person. Ive always been one. I don’t know, Its just something about a brand new day when you wake up and realize oh wow! Im alive! I woke up with a roof over my head! Im healthy! My family is alive and healthy! I can make me some food to eat! This might sound cliché but it really is a blessing to be able to say these things every day.

I also think honestly its all about your mindset in the morning. You can not have a positive morning waking up with a negative attitude. Get out of your own way and change your thinking. When you change your thinking you change your entire life! With this type of thinking I believe anyone can be a morning person, this mindset along with the following 3 things:

1. Get up as soon as your alarm goes off

Easier said then done right?! What helps me is putting my alarm source in our master bathroom. That way I LITERALLY have to get out of bed to turn off the alarm. By that time… Youre up!

2. Practice gratitude & exercise

When you wake up with the mindset of: man I get to wake up and make my coffee! Or I get to wake up and use my expensive iphone or Android to check social media! LOL. It really changes your perspective. A 2017 data report states that around 150,000 people die EVERY DAY. To put things even more into perspective lets add Corona virus to it. Im sure you get the picture here. Simply put if you are blessed to open your eyes in the morning, that instantly should make you a morning person.

Everyone knows I looove physical activity and working out. (I have been slacking these last few weeks) but nonetheless over all I stay pretty active. I have found that when you exercise which gives you endorphins. Those endorphins make you happy, thus contributing to a great morning!

3. Drink coffee, tea or a natural energy drink

Caffeine really does help give you that extra push in the morning. And if you aren’t a coffee drinker, try green tea or a energy drink. I absolutely looove This (use code: thisdollhere for 25% off PLUS free shipping) energy multiplier because it is a fast acting natural caffeine that is comparable to 1-2 cups of coffee. Works extremely well and doesn’t give you jitters.

These 3 basic things have really aided me into being the bubbly, happy and ready to conquer the day type of person you see early mornings on Instagram lol! What type of things do you incorporate in your routine that help you in the mornings? Comment and let me know.

Hope you have a happy Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by, until next time…

Hiii!! Happy Wednesday! Omg you guys!!! I’m really excited to talk to you guys about Home Chef today. First off, obvi we are in the middle of one of the biggest pandemics we have ever seen and most of us have been doing our part in staying home and keeping safe. However, Since restaurants have been ordered to close, if you’re like me and don’t like cooking and used to eating out at least 2-3 times a week this has been a bit difficult to say the least LOL! Now don’t get me wrong, take out is still nice and hubby and I absolutely love supporting our local restaurants. However it can be pretty pricey, a bit unsafe and when you get home and the food is cold…. well that is kind of annoying in my opinion.

The biggest reason I would have to say why I love home chef is because before this whole Corona virus, Hubby and I would have regular date nights at either our fave restaurant or at times different restaurants. Which is super easy as anyone would know, You go in, you order and your food comes out. When you are at home it’s more difficult to do that because you gotta choose what foods will pair with what, you gotta make sure you go buy everything, prep everything and then cook everything! By the time I do all that I am DONE! Lololol!!! With Home Chef, You don’t have to worry about anything other them picking the meals You want when you sign up. All the ingredients come packaged and ready for you. You just have to cook it & the meals are sooo delicious!! This is a major deal for me since I dislike cooking. Like seriously, I don’t know how I’ve managed to keep a man for 16 years and NOT cook on a regular basis LOL. But with Home Chef it makes it so much easier and enjoyable to do. I definitely see me cooking a ton more in my future 😜 I also love that you have an option to choose from based on your diet, so if you’re vegan, vegetarian, have any allergies of special dietary needs you can customize your meal plans accordingly. You can also skip a meal delivery based on your personal needs or customize how often you would like your meals to be delivered and I really really like that.

Another thing I noticed and really like is the portion control and the over all healthy choices you can choose from. This would easily be ideal for anyone who is trying to eat healthier and watch what they eat. I know we have all had to make an adjustment during this pandemic but with Home Chef it has definitely made our adjustment soooo much easier. I HIGHLY recommend!! You can check out their whole menu and sign up Here. Trust me you WILL thank me later! And your significant other will be highly impressed now that you’re cooking like a home chef!😉
