When we were little we used to get Easter Baskets galore with large stuffed animals, you know the ones from Costco. It used to be so much fun to open them up, play with new toys and such in the afternoon after Easter Sunday service. As we (my sister and I) got older the less times people celebrated us or made us feel special. For the past couple of years my sister has taken on the role of the Easter bunny, filling up baskets for mom, dad, me and even herself. I guess at the end of the day no matter what your age, it is fun to open up a surprise package because it makes you feel special.
Does Makeup Expire?
Simply put yes, it absolutely does. Similar to certain food products makeup has a sell by date rather than a strict expiration date. No, there are no rules or regulations that require beauty brands to place a physical deadline on their products. The reason why is simply the start date is determined whenever you first open it and place it on your face.
While they could place a small disclaimer saying the recommended expiration time frame, like some natural juice companies that say best if used in 7 days after opening, they don’t. There are other factors to consider which may be why: If you put on your mascara to make yourself feel more alive than you do on the inside, you probably shouldn’t put it back on your face again. The basic use by standards are placed below that scientists recommend due to the rate of bacteria growth on the products. In other words, your makeup could be making you sick.
Beanie Hairstyles | Natural & Easy
In the chilly California winter months I find myself more often than not reaching for a beanie. On these days I do not want to fuss with my hair or have that lingering burnt smell of fried hair. Years past I would constantly iron my hair and it was honestly so irritating how people reacted that it was so “beautiful”. Recently I started taking more pride in my natural roots so all of these hairstyles are basic, fast and all natural.

Facing Anxiety | Winter Vacation
First and foremost I would like to apologize for missing last Saturday’s post day. I scheduled to post a youtube video on my top packing tips but it seemed too blah. Anyway let’s talk about anxiety.
A few months ago I received an opportunity which I would normally say no to. Tired of saying no, I said yes. It was a trip to Nevada with my best friend for his work. Prior to the trip I had planned to vlog the experience but it didn’t work out, sorry loves. The camera was fogging up due to the snow fall, it was a whole thing. Life is full of trial and error my friends.
