Daily Beauty Routines

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fun, yet safe St. Patrick's Day weekend! I spent Saturday working a 10 hour shift at one of the restaurants I work at (yes, with no break and serving over 10 tables at a time on two floors!!).  I had to be there early that morning so amidst my sleepiness and the rain, I forgot to wear green and was reminded that by every single table. Anyway, I came home, took a long relaxing bath with Lavender and Epsom Salt, felt refreshed, and got ready for our night with friends.  Yesterday, we slept in, made breakfast at home and spent the day cleaning together--perhaps it sounds boring, but it was just what we needed.  It helped us feel relaxed and ready for this new week. 

When it comes to beauty and feeling confident, it is important to have a routine for both the outer (appearance) and the inner (body).  Here are some of my daily routines for both.

Hydration: It is so important to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
These pretty bottles make that possible on the go as well--and they are BPA free.
As much as I love wearing a color on my lips from time to time,
most days I wear chap stick only, and since high school, I have been
wearing Burt's Bees. 
Make sure you get plenty of beauty rest.  Everyone is different,
when I was 20, 6 hours was good. Now I need 7-8 hours in
order to function.
Balance out work with play. Make time for something
you love. For me, that is going for a walk somewhere
pretty--either due to nature or architecture.
Exercise at least 5 times a week and stretch everyday. I am not
even half this flexible, but I will keep trying! =)
St. Ives Apricot Scrub  (used at night only)
Make Up For Ever HD Primer in Neutral
Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer in Nude
Erase Paste by Benefit in No.2 Medium
Loreal True Match Powder in Nude Beige
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess
Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion in Black Brown
Tarte Blush in Blissful 


  1. Burts bees is so good. And we almost have the same name! Except mine is fake, and I chose it because it means honest.

  2. Great products, and I have to agree with u on cleaning and staying in being just what you need sometimes! :) Great blog, thanks for stopping by mine!



I read every single comment! Thanks for sharing. =)
