3 Things for the Perfect Self-Love Night

3 Things for the Perfect Self-Love Night

When was the last time you took time at the beginning of the week to relax? Our lives are so chaotic and crazy 99% of the time so what if you made time for you during the week? Yes, the world will keep spinning! Here are a few things I love to do during my self-love nights!

Wash your face!

Sounds simple, I know, but a task like washing your face can change everything. After a long day, nothing feels better than to wash your day away so you can enjoy your evening. Close your eyes and take a moment to reflect on your day. What are the things you want to wash away the most? Take this time to imagine yourself scrubbing the negativity off your face and watching them run down the drain.

Write it down

What if you have a to-do list a mile long and can’t see the end? Well, could you write out everything you need to do and then take 20 minutes to catch your breath? Doing a brain dump of all the tasks, and things going through your head actually reduces stress! Without overwhelming thoughts flooding in, the relaxation you’ve dreamed of all day is right around the corner.

Meditate

Imagine lighting a candle, smelling your favorite essential oils and taking time to be in your OWN zone. Find a comfortable spot, shut your eyes, focus on your breath and how your body moves with each inhale and exhale. Make your practice your own.

Work can be stressful enough, girl, so take the time you need this week. Wash your face, brain dump and meditate. Love yourself and care for yourself so your cup is full to give to everyone else who needs you.

XOXO,

Abi

These 3 products will change your life…

I see that face of horror you hold when you finally gain awareness of the number of beauty products you own. Filled with empty promises you now guard your heart against the brutality you feel when brands sell you pretty products but you never feel the true power you desire. Yes, we’re still talking about beauty products! I have been in search for years for products that actually do their job they promise you so here is a list of favorite products of mine that ACTUALLY do their job!

Natural Deodorant

Until recently I have always used the same deodorant and never had an issue with it. Lately, I started to get these really bad reactions under my arms. I began to venture out and try new things. Everything from crystals to putties and pastes and even tried making my own! Honestly, every time I walked into the drugstore I was in search of a better solution. After months of searching, I found my holy grail.

Schmidt’s Bergamont + Lime Natural Deodorant has changed my world. All-natural and free of harsh fragrances, aluminum, and parabens, I now smell amazing AND it last ALL DAY! With ingredients like baking soda, coconut oil, shea butter, and more this Deodorant is Certified vegan and cruelty-free. To all my gluten-free peeps… yes its gluten-free too!!

To use: Gently hold the stick up to your skin to warm and soften the product. In addition, begin to kindly apply and wave your arms in the air like you just don’t care!

Oil-free makeup remover

How many times have you battled the wonderful raccoon eyes that come with mascara? Every day huh! What if you’re on the opposite end of the spectrum and have beautiful lash extensions? Did you know that oil actually breaks down the lash adhesive! As a lash artist, I have searched for quality oil-free makeup removers since I have started lashing and this is hands down my favorite.

Mary Kay’s oil-free eye makeup remover is a must-have for any makeup lover. Designed for those with sensitive skin and eyes, you will never have to wonder if this product will cause irritation or discomfort. I myself have such a hard time finding something that doesn’t irritate them. For instance, with my contacts especially my eyes would always itch like crazy with other removers and I have never had an issue with this guy! Because Mary Kay cares about the quality of their products enough that they actually had it ophthalmologist tested! This go-to has even earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval and is a consistent best seller.

To use: Lightly soak a cotton pad and press lightly onto eye area for about 15-30 seconds while it does its magic. Makeup will disappear right before your eyes WITHOUT any harsh rubbing!
