Proverbs 31:10

Mini Midday Reminder

What fear are you holding on to?

When times get hard, I tend to get fearful of walking in my purpose and I always have to remind myself that great things never come from comfort zones.

Let go and trust God. He is so so faithful.

100% Tea Tree

So I actually discovered this line of products when I travelled the U.K. recently and I AM IN LOVE.

I have tried so many skincare regimes and this actually really works for me and the best thing is it is CHEAP! (In the U.K. I found these products in Superdrug and Poundland)

  • The Pure Tea Tree Oil I usually apply 1-2 drops on a small piece of cotton wool and apply to my face at nights before I use my moisturizer.
  • The Daily Wipes I use as a make – up remover or just when I want a quick cleanse (the peppermint tingle is really great)
  • The Cleansing Facial Scrub I use daily and it is truly suitable for all skin types. I have sensitive skin so this was very important to me. My face didn’t strip or dry out after I use it.
  • The Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Strip ( with skin calming witch hazel) – does everything it advertises on the box: Instantly lifts out dirt, oil and grease Removes black heads, unclogs and tightens pores. You leave it on for about 15- 20 minutes and then peel it off.
  • The Mask, I have used both the Mud Mask and the one pictured (Purifying Peel Off Mask) and I have been very satisfied. Just like the nose strip, you leave it on for about 15- 20 minutes and then peel it off.

Cons:

  • I have not seen this product available anywhere else but in the U.K., I have researched and researched and have had no luck!

Would I buy it again?

Definitely!

REVIEW: Revlon Colorstay

My Colour or Shade : Caramel

 

Pros:

  • SPF 15, which makes it great to wear in the daytime
  • Actually stays on for 24 hours (if you need it to- always remember to throughly cleanse your face before you get that beauty rest)
  • Only need to use a small amount
  • Doesn’t feel heavy on your face

Tips:

Works great with Black Opal Even True  Concealer and LA Girl Pro Concealer (both $5- $10 USD)

I found that when I tried with the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer  I found I didn’t really like the blend and my face got oily after a few hours

P.S.   The Whipped Version : Works the same as the regular, has a thicker consistency (so you need a tad bit on your make-up sponge)

Vegan Oatmeal Muffins

I am in no shape or form a vegan lol BUT my friend had made these cupcakes for me a while back and they are the best thing ever! Here’s the recipe (it’s pretty easy) :

2 cups Oats

1/2 cup Flax Seeds

2 tsp. Baking Powder (gluten free)

1 cup Almond Milk

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

a dash of Nutmeg 

Agave 

Pinch of Salt

Mix it all up, set the batter aside and preheat the oven to 375F. Bake for about 10-15 minutes. Let it cool and ENJOY!

P.S. You can change the amount of ingredients depending on the quantity of muffins you wish to make! 🙂
