DIY Nourishing Oil Cleansing Balm

Besides gettin' my acid exfoliation on, the best thing I've done for my skin was to drop the foamy washes and use balm cleansers. So much so that I've gotten quite the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm habit. But I wanted to find a more natural alternative so I decided to team up with Morgan of Blushing Wit to come up with an oily DIY.

Pretty Pictures and Inspiring Instagrams

I can flick through Instagram all day long. On slow days at work I'll even get irritated that there aren't enough new pictures by the time I get back to the app. Its bad. Like the heyday of Candy Crush - bad, I can sometimes go to bed seeing scrolling pictures (instead of falling candies).

Vintage Shopping on Oak Street


One of the many things I love about New Orleans is that ever street is so different. Sure you've got neighborhoods that are somewhat cohesive but you can really go from one street to the next and have a completely different feel.

Renpure Solutions Cleansing Conditioner

Mercuteify | Cleansing Conditioner

I've been doing some weird shopping lately. I mean not that weird but the amount of times in the last few weeks I've gone to Whole Foods with zero intentions of buying food is getting out of hand. Besides the pink salt massage stone (not joking), perfume oil, and shea butter, I've found the best budget cleansing conditioner of all time.

New Orleans Bucket List

French Quarter Buildings
I'm not 100% sure but I'm pretty positive that I never mentioned that I'm not going to be in New Orleans permanently. Not like for the rest of my life permanently that is. I figure I've got about five years here. And I kind of feel like I've wasted most of the first (but that is a different story for a different day). There are so many things I want to do while I live here, or just while I'm living in the southern US in general so I thought I would share with ya'll (so native) my New Orleans Bucket List.
