When the light hits the ice:     A skincare appreciation post

IT TWANKLES AND GLISTENS!!

When I graduated college many, moons ago (don’t ask how many moons ok!) As a gift my mom gave me a ” You’re a grown woman self care kit/Lesson”. She has always been on our heads (my sisters and I) about taking care of our skin. To the point that she will comment things like “I hope you have on sunscreen!” on a fire selfie posted to Facebook. Think I’m kidding? Exhibit A:

The amount of time I spend on my AM and PM skincare routine may be borderline out of control. However the results that I am getting from being serious about my skin are WORTH the time I put in into it. A product that has become a staple in both my AM and PM routine is Rose Water.

On My Playlist: Kid Sister “Pro Nails”

This was and still is my jam. I was scrolling my timeline a couple days ago and Kid Sister popped up courtesy of my fave @iso14below (go read her blog HERE). Anyway it reminded me of how much I was into her single pro nails featuring vintage Kanye West. The video and song could arguably be before its time, because the song slaps! Her hair, nail art, sweat suit jackets, and leggings are still on trend today (errbody got something that is represented in that video) Check out the video and twerk a lil something.
