As of last week December 5th I turned the sweet ol’ 24 years. The fact that I’m 24 even thinking about it is crazy, because I still get asked for my ID for like everything, like I am getting old & time is flying. For crying out loud my little brother looks older than me. I feel like I was just in high school yesterday, now I’m just a college graduate, like what ? Now I keep thinking “Wow, I’m almost 25, meaning I’m literally almost 30, which is close to 50, which is basically 75” I need to relax on that though and enjoy 24, ha! I compiled a list of things I learned throughout my years. Although my husband laughed at my list, it’s all actually true
For the love of God, wear your retainers
If you have to think about it, don’t buy it
The Lifetime Movie channel is heaven sent
Dogs are needed in life
Announcing your accomplishments & future plans are not for the world to know. People can be spiteful
Be nice to people. A simple “Hi” can make their day
Cooking home meals beat takeout
Cleaning keeps you balanced
Prayers work, if consistent
Lazy days are needed
Drinking water & minding your business makes life easier
Don’t worry about how far along others are in life. Your different so your path will be different
Exercise to keep healthy & active not just looks
You can’t satisfy everybody
Get a hobby
Do what makes YOU happy
Sometimes you got to say how you really feel
Stay faithful to your hair dresser
Stop worrying about things you can’t control
Have a taco or two or five
Travel, work is cool and all but a break is cool too
Ever wake up to, terrible looking dry chapped lips? Because I don’t know it’s winter time? Sound familiar? If so we’re on the same boat, you are in luck because today I am going to show you one way (one) of my favorite way to exfoliate my lips with a lip scrub, but without having to do out and buying one. The thing is: I am 100% certain you have these items laying around in your kitchen cabinet somewhere trust me. This is one of those DIY’s that ARE simple that I honestly don’t have to even explain to you how to do so because I will simply tell you what you need and all you need to do is combine and you’re finished! Nevertheless, lip scrubs are very much needed on these freezing cold winter days, chapped lips simply suck and are unattractive to look at! With that being said make your own! It’s ridiculously easy and you only need things that you have.
Things you will need.
A small plate
white or brown sugar (whichever sugar you use)
Mix everything together in your small plate and mix mix mix. And there you have it! If you don’t have coconut oil you can substitute olive oil. Also: Remember to apply your lip balm after scrubbing your lip scrub off!
Once you mix it all leave it sitting on your lips for 2 minutes. Have a napkin in hand it tends to get a little messy.
