The Best $2 I Have Ever Spent On My Face

As a former beauty advisor and all-round person who just needs to know stuff, I have tried a lot of different face cleansers, both manufactured and home-made. Lately, though, I’ve been scaling back as we could be moving (for real this time) and I finished up the last of my cleanser, so on a whim at the supermarket I bought something for $2 that has made me postpone using cleansers this winter.

Are you ready for it?

Beauty Misconceptions Mini: New Skin Regime Can Break You Out/Purging

Regina-George-Pores

I was going to address this in the last beauty misconceptions post but I didn’t want it to be a whole chapter. Instead, I thought I would address it individually from the others in its own post because the whole subject can be really confusing and there are multiple¬†reasons you might break out.

The short answer to this question/statement is yes, a new skincare regime can break you out, but the reasons are a bit longer than a word…

DIY Drawer Dividers!

 

While I was working on another post I was getting ready to clean up my vanity. I actually wanted to go to my local IKEA and grab some drawer dividers, but it’s kind of hard to get to by myself, so I decided to try my luck at making some.

However, I was looking at some of my photography equipment and I saw a white foam board, one you can find at Kmart or dollar stores. It had a dent in it and was marked a bit, which is why I didn’t use it any longer.

I decided a little after starting to cut out the pieces that I should actually put it up on here in case any of you want to make your own!

How To Actually Style Your Rental (Without Pissing Anyone Off)

cover-rental
I can’t tell you how sick and tired I am of looking on Pinterest, getting sucked into some damn article that tells me the same styling tips that I can do which I actually absolutely can not. I am absolutely not allowed to change any fixtures, any stupid-ass temporary flooring or cabinetry. At all. I’m really lucky though because we’re the first people to live in this new, modern house.

But you might be so lucky. You might be living in an older place but still can’t change any lighting or fixtures, or you can do it to one area but not another. Look it’s a weird rental game out there no matter where you live, and it’s important to make it feel comfortable for yourself and anyone else you might be living with.

So here are some things that have helped me in the rental places I’ve lived.
