Blog Schedule

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday. It is currently snowing here where I live and I am loving every minute of it. I love cold weather. But anyway I did a poll on twitter asking what days are better for a blog schedule. I was thinking maybe Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Or Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The majority said Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

But I would love to hear from you! Please leave your suggestions in the comments.

My twitter is Brooke Alexis in case you were curious.

Thank You!

Essential Oils

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great day so far. Today I wanted to talk about essential oils. Now I am not an expert on them, I’ve only been using them for a little over a year. But I really do enjoy them, so I thought I would share my thoughts about Essential Oils on here.

So like I just said, I’ve only been using Essential Oils for about a little more then a year. I am a huge fan of them now though. I am on my second Oil Diffuser because my first one broke. But I must say I do like this one more. I am using the InnoGear Diffuser. Before I started using Essential Oils I used to go through candles like crazy. I still love candles because they give that warm and cozy vibe. A vibe that I think an Oil Diffuser just can’t give.

I’m not going to sit here and tell you that Essential Oils have completely changed my life because they haven’t. But they have changed some areas of my life. I can honestly say since I’ve started using Lavender Essential Oil every night when I go to bed I feel like I have been sleeping a lot better. And when I use Peppermint Essential Oils for joint pain/ growing pains it really does take away the pain.

So yes some really do help with certain areas. But mostly I just enjoy the different smells.  I really enjoy candles so I thought I would give Essential Oils a try and see if they do anything for me. I don’t believe Essential Oils are miracle workers or anything close. But I do really enjoy them. Would I recommend them? Well I would say it is up to you if you want to try them and spend the money.

Here are some of my favorite Essential Oils.

  • Lavender
  • Frankincense
  • Rosemary
  • Eucalyptus
  • Peppermint

I hope you enjoyed my thoughts on Essential Oils. What are your thoughts on Essential Oils? Please leave a comment.

Current Skincare routine (mostly drugstore

In todays post I am sharing my current skincare routine. I love skincare and trying out different skincare items. But so many skincare brands out there are just so expensive. So I have been trying find drugstore skincare items that I feel really work. I have oily to normal skin, oily around my nose and on my chin. So if you have dry skin these items may or may not work for you.

So lets start with my morning skincare routine. I am not a morning person so I don’t want to take more steps then I need to get ready. So when I first wake up I use the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water to cleanse off all of the products I put on me face the night before. If I feel like I need a little more cleansing then I will use the Clean and Clear Morning Burst facial cleanser(oil free). Then after I have cleansed my face it is time for toner. Now I got a Lush gift card for Christmas so I decided to try out their one of their facial toners. The one that I’ve been using is their Tea Tree Water Toner Water. It says on the bottle that it is beneficial for anyone with oily skin. I feel like it really has been helping my oily skin. The next step is to moisturize your face. I have been loving Neutrogena naturals skincare line lately so I decided to give their day moisturizer a go. The one I’ve been using is their Multi-vitamin nourishing moisturizer. It claims to replenish essential skin nutrients plus continuous moisture nourishment throughout the day. It also says it’s a daily moisturizer fortified with vitamins B,C,E and anti-oxidant omega bionutrients for healthier, younger looking skin. It says it won’t clog pores. That is my morning skincare routine.

Now onto my night skincare routine. This is the time were I really try to take care of my skin. I am not half asleep at this time (usually), so I really like to pamper my skin. I do like to take a shower at night before bed, I feel much cleaner if I do. So before I get in the shower I take of my makeup with Simple kind to skin cleansing facial wipes. Then I get my Garnier Micellar cleansing water and get all of the makeup that the facial wipes didn’t get. Then I get in the shower, and in the shower I use Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser and I can honestly say I have seen I difference with my pores while I’ve been using this. If I feel like that isn’t enough then I will go in with the Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub. This is a recent product so I’m not sure if it has really improved my skin or not. But it does make my skin feel really clean after. So those are the products I use while I am in the shower.

Next lets talk about the products I use after I get out of the shower. First of all I use my Tea Tree Water from Lush, I use this toner morning and night. Then I go in with my Elf Illumating Eye Cream. This is a recent also a recent purchase so I can’t say if it really helps my dark circles. I let this soak in for a few minutes before I go in with my next product. Which is the Neutrogena naturals multi-vitamin nourishing night cream. It claims to replenish moisture and essential skin nutrients. I have noticed a difference in my skin while I’ve been using this product. I feel like my skin is a lot softer then it used to be.

So there it is, my current (mostly drugstore) skincare routine. Please comment some of your favorite skincare products at the moment. Even if they are high end products. I love trying new skincare brands. Also please leave a comment if you would like a update on the products that I just bought and still seeing if I like them.

Hello!- new blogger :)

Hi everyone! I recently have gotten into blogging. I feel like it’s a safe place where I can write how I am feeling instead of trying to find the words to tell someone how I’m feeling.

So here’s a little bit of information about me. I’m a 20 year old girl who LOVES animals and I’m actually going to school to be certified Animal Trainer. Animals have always been a passion of mine. I’m so excited to start school in March. So I thought maybe throughout my schooling I can come on here and share what I have been learning.

I also started volunteering at local animal shelters near me and I absolutely love it. I love making all the animals there feel a little more comfortable and I little more happy.

But I also really enjoy photography. I am still learning about photography, but the more and more I learn about it the more excited I get to capture more memories and cool photos. So I thought I would also share some of the cool moments that I capture throughout my journey on here.

So I hope you learned a little something about me. This is my very first post on here so there will be more to come. Thank you for stopping by and reading. I hope you all had a wonderful day.
