HEALTHY SKIN. I believe that it is crucial to keep my skin moisturized every day especially during Autumn and Winter. I have a mix of dry and oily skin so it is hard to find a single product that can combat both of these issues. When I began using products on my face, I had this preconceived notion that if I use "above average" creams, such as Shiseido, my skin would show less dryness. However, my skin is extremely sensitive so this led to the formation of prominent dry patches on my face! NOT what I wanted! I quickly tried to find a remedy for my skin by using drug store creams such as Neutrogena which resulted in no improvement - it actually caused a burning sensation on my face! At this point, I was extremely frustrated since no product was able to match my skin's needs. I was in desperate need for oxygenated skin! Anyways, I am a member of iFabbo and I saw that they were offering a moisturizer called Hydroxatone to their bloggers. I usually do not use products that are not well known until I do a bit of background research so I did just that. Not only does this moisturizer work for my skin, it has the ability to fade dark spots on my face! Seriously! I have some scars from past acne problems (oh, the joy of teenage years!) and I saw that they began to fade after a couple weeks of use! Not only is this product affordable but it works! No, I am not just saying that because they sponsored this post (I tend to speak my mind - read my other sponsored posts). This moisturizer has the ability to protect my skin from damaging UV rays and it has the ability to keep my skin looking rejuvenated! Purchase this product HERE!

2O14 - NEW YEAR, NEW PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE. I hope everyone is keeping enjoying 2014 and keeping warm - especially those on the East Coast! I feel so fortunate to live in toasty California since the weather is perfect all year round! Anyways, I usually compile a list of things I would like to accomplish in the new year however, my goals from 2013 are transferring over to 2014. All of my goals are academic and I am working hard to make them reality. Are you guys able to check off every item on your list? I know the typical resolution revolves around fitness and the desire to reduce your body mass index but I never felt compelled to make that my primary goal. Whatever your goals may be, conquer them with passion and devotion. I know this may sound a bit peculiar but I usually make everything seem like some sort of macabre game. For instance, if I make it my goal to run for 30 minutes and I begin losing my breath at 25 minutes, I start saying to myself, "If you don't complete this, something truly devastating will happen to some one you care for...." Obviously, I do not want anything horrible happening to anyone I love so I utilize every ounce of energy that is left to finish it. You probably think I am insane but it works... for me at least! As for my outfit, I decided to start off the year with a casual outfit post. Unless I am going out with my mom, I am more prone to throw on something comfortable. I have been studying and finding refuge in libraries or classrooms so this is the perfect attire for just that!
