Precision Pore Cleansing Pad

Sometimes you just want to get your face cleaned all the way deep down! You could pay $100-300 for a Clarisonic brush or you can just spend $6 and use a little bit of gentle elbow grease.

I bought this Precision Pore Cleansing Pad about 4 weeks ago and I have been in love with it ever since.  For only $6 this thing is amazing!  It really makes my face wash foam up and deeply cleans my face. I also use it daily and have had no problems with irritation.It has soft silicone nubs that gently massage the face and feel so good. Paired with my CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser it is like a match made in Heaven.  I also bought a second one and have been using it to clean my brushes. It works perfectly!  I highly recommend this simple yet effective cleansing…

The Amalfi coast is one of the most beautiful places and I fell in love with it. I made the trip to Positano by way of Naples and I am so glad I hired a driver because I got to watch the sun set along the Sorrento coast. My driver insisted we stop and take proper pictures because he saw me trying to snap a few with my cell phone. “What’s that mountain?,” I asked.. “Oh that’s Mount Vesuvius.” I had no idea how close I was to Pompeii and wish I had set aside time to see it!

Since the sun had gone down during my drive down the coast when I arrived in Positano it was dark but even then I could tell by it’s twinkling lights and the bright moon it was beautiful.

How To Fight Colds And The Flu With Baking Soda

In his “Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Medical Uses,” distributed in 1924, Dr. Volney S. Cheney relates his clinical triumphs with sodium bicarbonate in treating colds and influenza cases:

The most effective method to Fight Colds and The Flu with Baking Soda

In 1922, people were aware of this cheap approach to dodge colds and influenza yet it has been overlooked by our present day society.

The strategy is simple and safe. The only thing you need to do is to break down the proposed measure of baking soda in a glass of cool water and drink it. This is the strategy archived by the Arm & Hammer Company for colds and flu in 1925.

Day one: Take an aggregate of six dosages of half a teaspoon of baking soda in one mug of water. Take it every two hours.

Day two: Take an aggregate of six dosages of half a teaspoon of baking soda in one mug of water. Take it every two hours.

Day three:  Take just two dosages — one in the morning and the other one at night.

Keep taking one dosage in the morning until your sickness is gone.

Versatile Blogger Award


So I got nominated for the versatile blogger award, and I’m so grateful, its awesome that people think highly enough of your blog to nominate you, and its a very cool way of interacting with other bloggers and learning about each other. I have been nominated for a couple of these awards recently, however I don’t always participate. I love being nominated, honestly I’m really grateful, its just that most of these awards are very similar, and if I participated in every one I was nominated for I would have loads of virtually identical posts, which would be pretty boring for you as readers. So if I haven’t participated in an award you nominated me for, its not that I’m not grateful to be nominated, I’m just committed to making all of my posts as interesting as possible for you readers.

I was nominated for the Versatile blogger award by…

Dare To Go Bare

TheCurly And TheStraight

When a brand releases new products my twin sister and I probably get just a little bit too excited. When we found out about the new Rimmel Nudes our reaction was even worse! As nude tones are probably our most favorite due to the simplicity and easy wear of them this was one release we were counting down the days for. We purchased two pieces from the line to tell you about, including one nail polish and one lipstick, around a week ago so we’ve had plenty of time to test them out and let you know what we think.


The lipstick, if you’ve read our earlier postfrom last week,we already mentioned just how much we adore the Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks. So to find out there were new shades, we were thrilled! This has a really nice finish and is quite a subtle lip color but can be…
