Let It Go and You Will Grow

What is one thing we all have in common? I know I know several right? How about a past? I am not just talking about a squeaky clean past but one full of mistakes. Any ever struggle getting over those downfalls? Well I want to be the one to share my take of getting through those rough times.

MY LITTLE STORY…

When I started out in college, I thought I had it made. Coming from high school, making straight A’s and graduating in the top 13% of my class while being on the drill team, marching band, student empowerment team and student council. I told myself, “I can do college, I got this”. Totally underestimated the reality of transitioning from high school to a university.

DIY Lemon-Hemp Facial Scrub

A simple yet gentle exfoliating scrub for your face.

Ahh…feel the cool but warm breeze touching your skin, after you decide to hide your puffers and sweaters in the closet, it’s time to let your skin breathe! It’s spring! Spring is a time of cleanliness and the beginning of renewal. One way to embrace this fresh weather is by updating your skincare routine.

Being in my mid-twenties, I still struggle with acne problems. With sensitive skin, I learned over-the-counter products do not work for me, simply too many harsh chemicals. So, I did some research and discovered the best remedy for sensitive skin is raw organic products in its purest form, which are some items I have in my fridge or pantry.

Hemp seed is a wonderful nutrient-filled oil. The healing properties and benefits are phenomenal and it is a great moisturizer for skin and hair. Combined with products from the fridge, it makes an undeniable inexpensive alternative  for skincare.

Hemp seeds are edible and great for boosting and regulating your immune system by giving you the two essential fatty acids (Omega-3 and Omega-6). Personally, I don’t eat hemp seed oil, I use it only on my face as a moisturizer and as an additive to my exfoliating scrub. Continue reading

Tales of the Heart

You enhance the hidden beauty on a rainy day, making it easy to have nothing to say.

You bring endurance during cold nights, making way for a starry sight.

Your love elevates higher than any mountain, flowing freely like a water fountain.

Your heart is as still as the sea, wrapping your arms around like a brave tree.

Planting my feet upon your land, waiting for you to grab my hand.

Listening to your words flow in the air, running freely without a care.

Cherishing your fingers like the petals of a flower, whispering to each other quietly by the hour.

Just how the moon completes the sky, I am always happy to have you near by.

Blogging is a great method.  Continue reading
