3 Things.

I've gone a while without wearing a lot of makeup when I leave the house. I've recently started to get back into the habit. It's nice to go out and look pretty, even if you're not doing something super social or important. And yay for a red lip.

The. Fucking. Office. I've always heard about how good this show was. And saw tons of hilarious memes taken from it. I've finally gotten into it and it's so goddamn funny I can't even. I love that I'm only on season three and have a ton of episodes left to watch. Once I finish the American version, I'm going to get into the UK one.

Starbucks is life dude. My best friend and I used to have coffee dates every week. But because of busy schedules we kind of stopped. We realized how much we missed them so we make it a point to have our Starbucks once a week.

So...2017 Is Almost Over.

2017 has been a crazy year. For myself, and pretty much everyone else on the damn planet. I've gone through a lot of tough times, and a lot of good times. But 'tis is life.

I've never been one to set New Year's resolutions. They're so cliche and no one ever really sticks to them. And to me, they set up false hope for things that you just may not achieve in that year.

I will, however, set new and better paths for myself. I do have goals in mind that I would like to accomplish. Will I get them all done in 2018? Who knows. But I know I have the power to do them in however much time it takes.

Some of my goals involve my blog, many involve major changes I need to make in my personal life. And some are just bucket list types of things that I'd like to do before I die.

Here are a few of my blog goals:

  • Get more engagement (specifically in the comments)
  • Reach 1000 followers on Twitter
  • Reach 1000 followers on Instagram
  • Work with more brands
  • Learn more about SEO (!!!)
  • Host a giveaway
I know those seem like simple things that many of you have already surpassed 10x over. But everyone takes their own time to do things, so I'll try not to compare myself to others.

I'm hoping things will be okay this upcoming year. For me, and for all of you out there. Stay strong and know that you have the power to do what you need to do.

Love you guys!

Maple Holistics Lavender Oil.

Maple Holistics Lavender Oil

I love anything lavender. Scents, colors, patterns, all that. So when Maple Holistics reached out to me to try their Lavender Essential Oil, I was all for it.

From the Maple Holistics website:

Maple Holistics Lavender Essential Oil is undiluted and as pure as it can get. Lavender oils homeopathic powers are legendary. It has been known to be an effective sleep aid while also providing relief form stress and anxiety. It makes the perfect addition to any massage and can be added to the laundry to give you clothes a wonderful scent. In addition it works well as a skin moisturizer and skin irritant soother. Discover what lavender oil can do for you!

I was really interested in this product because I do suffer from anxiety, and it also effects my sleeping habits. Lavender is a well known stress reliever, and I've used this oil on my pillow, the back of my neck, and wrists right before bed. It helps calm me down. I also use it as an air freshener for the house. Since it is 100% lavender oil, the scent is a tad bit strong. You can easily dilute it with some water, or just make sure to use it sparingly. A little really does go a long way with this product.

For me, my fear with this product was that if I used it on my skin, it would irritate me. My skin doesn't usually get on well with all natural products. However, I had no problems with this oil. I've used it on various parts of my body, and I've had no adverse effects, thankfully.

I really like this oil. So much so that I'm almost running out of it. It's wonderful. I will certainly continue using it, as well as try other products from Maple Holistics, since it seems as though my skin gets along with their products pretty well.

If you'd like to try out some products from Maple Holistics, they have a free samples program where you can receive products to try out and see if you like anything of their's.

What types of oils would you recommend for different ailments?
