Lace Dresser Update

Hello and happy Sunday! You may remember but I did a post on the blog a long time ago where I did an update to my mom’s old dresser with paint and lace.

It has proven to be a very popular post even today! Well I decided to update that dresser again!

I changed the paint and the way the lace was placed this time. I also added new pulls. Check out the before and after and if you want to see the original, search for the lace dresser post to see where it all started!

My Thoughts:

My skin is more supple and soft thanks to the collagen + retinol serum which I do use daily. Also Skyn Island products are amazing for stressed skin PERIOD! The hydro cooling gels work wonders on tired eyes! The Tarte chrome paints are seriously pigmented and give any look life! The Miss spa hydrogel lip treatment leaves my lips feeling moisturized and smooth. Last but not least my brand new baby Fenty match stick one word… BOMB. Stay tuned for a whole post dedicated to my love for Fenty Beauty!

Let me give you a little back ground: Tatcha skincare is made in Japan and inspired by beauty secrets of Japanese Geishas. The ingredients in each product are carefully selected and minimally manipulated to be safe and gentle for maximum effectiveness.

I have four different products from Tatcha That have worked wonders on my skin.

  3. The water cream
  4. The deep cleanse

The one step camellia cleansing oil is a blend of camellia oil, rice brand oil, red algae, and green tea. It removes everything off your face and leaves you feeling clean, soft, and supple.

The classic rice enzyme powder is an exfoliant, cleanser, and toner in one! It is a water active powder that is a blend of rice and papaya extracts that release debris from your skin to leave you feeling super soft. It is also formulated with pearl which is a natural skin conditioner.

The water cream O.M.G I cannot say enough about this product it has transformed my skincare routine! I LOVE it so much! The water cream is anti-aging, refreshing, and pore-perfecting. The cream releases a burst of skin-improving nutrients to hydrate and prep skin.

The deep cleanse is a clarifying cleanser made with Japanese luffa fruit extract. The deep cleanse lifts impurities, unclogs pores, and balance skin’s moisture for a healthy glow.

Tatcha skincare is formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, or TEA. They are non-comedogenic, non-irritating, non-sensitizing, and dermatologist tested. In other words GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN!

The packaging in cute and the product is amazing. I cannot say enough good things about these products and this brand!

If you want simplicity in your skincare routine and beautiful skin try Tatcha today.

All products were purchased from Sephora.

K Beauty: Trendy or Trusted

Allow me to drop some knowledge on you this hump day. K Beauty or Korean Beauty is the term for skin care products derived from South Korea. These products focus on health, hydration, and complexion.

The typical K Beauty regimen involves cleansers (oil and water based), sheet masks, moisturizers, serums, and essences.

Two K Beauty brands I’m highlighting are TonyMoly and Skin Food.

From TonyMoly we have the Egg Pore tightening cooling pack and a Megatox lift shot. Both are masks each one focused on complexion which is one of the concentrations of K Beauty. The Egg Pore mask helps with tightening and shrinking pores and the lift shot focuses on an overall face lift.

From Skin Food we have the Peach Sake toner, Peach Sake serum, and Rice Brightening makeup remover wipes. The focus of these products is hydration and brightening.

My favorite are the Rice makeup remover wipes. Best makeup remover wipes ever! They don’t sting, they remove all the makeup from your face, and you get 80 per pack for $12!

The Peach Sake toner is a close second. It’s refreshing and smells amazing!

All items were purchased at Ulta.

Bottom Line: K Beauty is a must! My skin is soft, clear, and even toned. I’ve even noticed a change in my pores (winning)!

Have you tried any K Beauty products?

Meal Prep: Chicken Stir Fry

For the past two months I have been meal prepping. It is a life saver! I do it every week for my lunch for work. It’s easy and nice not to have to worry about food each day. It is also great for trying to get in/stay in shape.

I have fun coming up with different meals each week.

What I do:

Every Sunday is meal prep day. I do meat and veggies at the very least. This past week was chicken stir fry.

I made the chicken stir fry with chicken tenderloins, broccoli, mushrooms, and peppers. I cooked rice and I eat fruit with every meal prep. Depending on my work week I do prep for three or four days.

I add fruit or apple sauce and I’m set for the week! I reach in the fridge each morning pull out lunch and hit the road. This is so easy and stress free plus it’s fun coming up with a new recipe every week!

Love it. Live it. Eat it.
