The Ultimate Homemade Deodorant
For years I have been on the hunt for the perfect natural deodorant. I had such a hard time finding one that 1. lasts all day and 2. doesn't irritate my skin. The problem that I was having was that every time I would find one I enjoyed and lasted all day, it would always make my under arms break out or itch. After doing some research, I discovered that it was the baking soda in these deodorants that was making me break out and that other people were having the same issue. So, once again, I was on a quest to find a natural deodorant that 1. lasted all day, 2. doesn't irritate my skin, and 3. was baking soda free.

Consumers are understanding environmental impact, the risk of cheap toxic ingredients, and overall wanting to cut down on overwhelming products, and expenses. Also, COVID-19, has made it more difficult to shop, get treatments - so an at-home D.I.Y. approach seems to be necessary.

How to Trick People into Thinking that you have Lash Extensions
This is my experience with lash extensions followed by my current falsies lash routine. I was sixteen when lash extensions started becoming the next big thing. As a high schooler who was insecure about having stubby lashes that stuck straight down, I had to have them. I drove myself to the local lash studio and signed a contract to pay for a year’s worth of lash extensions (no commitment issues with regard to eyelashes!!). The first few months were euphoria. I was in love. My camera roll was full of selfies of me thinking I looked so amazing with these new lushious lashes. However, as all good things come to an end, the honeymoon phase between my lash extensions and I came to a halt.
Today I wanted to share with you the products that I use and the benefits in using them. A lot have the same properties as the others, but the smell and mixing them together have been great on my hair.
