FASHION & BEAUTY: Skin Care Routine

Skin Care Routine

Taking care of your skin is really important as well as knowing what type of skin you have. You can always talk to your dermatologist about the type of skin you have or ask a professional make up artist about what products you should use.

Now I have dry skin but my forehead gets oily during the winter and during the summer I am usually fine. I use a variety of products at different times so my skin doesn't get used to something forever. That is just I though, I feel like you should switch up your products every now and then.

Right now I use Image face cleanser. It smells really good and it tones out my skin really nice. Before that though I will use a Biore Charcoal face wash and scrub away and black or white heads on my skin. Mainly around my nose and chin. I also will occasionally use Que Bella facemasks from target. I really like the brand. My favorite is the pore minimizer and the rose clay mask. I don't use masks all the time though because my skin doesn't like it.

Another great way to get rid of black heads though is the Biore nose strips. Or any other brand of nose strips. I’ve never had a bad strip. I also use charcoal peel off masks to get rid of any nasty in my face.

As for moisturizing I actually use Vaseline cocoa butter for my body and then I will use coconut oil for my face. Coconut oil is great and that is an entire post in itself of what you can do with coconut oil but for beauty wise it really moisturizes and doesn't leave that nasty oil residue. It also works as a makeup remover and I even made my own blush tint with coconut oil. The shine it leaves acts as a dewy natural highlight and the slight pinkish pigment leaves a nice rosy winter blush on my face.


Another tip for skin care is to not even wear makeup. Most of my days I don't wear makeup and if I do I try to go light with just using mascara, eyeliner, brows and my coconut oil blush. For lips I will most likely use Chap Stick or wet and wild’s new liquid velvet lippies. I hardly use foundation and concealer. I try to not have anything on my face around my chin, cheeks, forehead and nose because that is where I break out the most.

TRAVEL: Universal Orlando

Everyone needs a nice long vacation once in a while. My boyfriend decided to surprise me with a trip to universal Orlando Florida. I have never been and really wanted to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and be the Hufflepuff that I am. 
I recently posted a blog about traveling and the basic tips I have to being organized. It helped out a lot to prepare for this trip since we were going to be staying for 4 nights, 5 days. If you haven't read thatclick hereto check it out!
I have bad anxiety when it comes to transportation and flying is the worst but I was just so tired from the flight being so early, that it didn't really affect me. We flew with southwest out of our small local airport and it was a nice flight. We actually ended up landing early which was pretty cool. 

So we stayed at Cabana Bay, which is the hotel in the park. It has the coolest 60s retro theme that I just adore. Anything that is vintage I am all about. There was so much in this hotel alone to keep guests …

Cheap Kawaii Clothes

Finding cheap kawaii fashion
If you know my you know my style ranges from bohemian hippie to goth to pastel princes. I have always loved the pastel and kawaii fashion but sometimes it is hard to find those special pieces to really define your style. Sometimes the cheapest way to have these items (that actually fit right) is to make it yourself. I love sewing clothes but not everyone knows how to sew. So I am going to tell you what I do to collect the cutest clothes.
Thrifting - Thrifting is one of my favorite things to do when trying to find clothes that fit my style for a cheap price. I even found an entire cosplay in one visit because there are so many different pieces you can get and put together and alter. Some thrift stores like Goodwill will organize by color which is great if you want a specific color, but the sizes are not in order which can be frustrating. Thrift store like savers will organize by size so you can easily go to your size section and scan the pieces for your desir…

Creatively Maree Art Challenge

I have mentioned on a couple of posts that I was working on a challenge for myself to just get better at drawing things. I feel like being in the graphic design field I didn't get to do a lot of drawing. I know I need to improve on drawing hands and detail as well as proportion so this is why I am putting together this challenge. If you wish to join me on my little journey, I will be posting the weekly theme every Monday on my social media pages (Mainly Facebook) as each week is from Monday Morning to Sunday Night. When or if you post on social media you can use the hash tag #creatively53 to make it easy to find everyone and we can converse about our art. Rules: There really aren’t a lot of rules really.

You have to include the theme in your drawing or drawings in some way. You must do at least one drawing for the theme but you can do even more if you would like to. I understand that some people have work and school and it is hard to keep up with challenges, which is why I gave a week …
