In short, I’m breaking out sis.
For the last few months, I have been trying to get in the groove of a solid skincare routine, which I thought I had down until I recently started breaking out. I was being diligent – face wash, witch hazel or cleansing pad, toner water, moisturizer (SPF in the morning), and face oil. I used a liquid acid / exfoliant once a week on Sundays, Vitamin C serum once a week on Wednesdays, and a face mask (sheet or clay) on Friday’s. That’s it – I had my skincare down to a science.

The other day I was minding my business on Instagram when I was served an ad from Pixi Beauty with a message that basically told me I needed more skin care products and that I needed to buy them right now! The actual message was that I would get a free Glow Tonic (which is one of my FAVORITE toners of all time) with a purchase of any tonic AND free shipping on any order over $25.
Girl…I know my debit card is tired.

About a month and a half ago, I logged into my Twitter account after over a year of not being on there, and came across a conversation that led me down a rabbit hole which then led me to an influencers page who had discount codes for beauty and skincare brands, one of them being Nola Skinsentials.

I didn’t want to come back and announce my obvious hiatus, but here we are. In the past eight months (I honestly didn’t realize it had been that long) since I’ve posted, a lot has happened, and I honestly didn’t feel good enough about myself to post anything and I just wasn’t motivated or inspired enough to think of content ideas. It wasn’t until recently when one of my favorite rappers, Nipsey Hussle died, that I realized how short life is, and how his music always spoke to focusing on your passion, putting in the work and going after what you want. He’s inspired me greatly through words since 2010, and in his passing he inspired me to get off my ass and get to it.

Editor’s Note: My Jade roller looks frosty because I freeze it before use.
OK… so I finally bought a Jade roller, and it has not only changed my skin but has really helped with my anxiety as well.
I believe it was last year or even 2017 when there was major hype around Jade rolling. I mean everyone and their mom had bought a Jade roller and was raving about how it improved their skin, but I just couldn’t buy into the hype. I mean how could using this little rolling thing really clear your skin or even out your skin tone? It just didn’t make sense because all those AHAs and oils, and serums are supposed to do that, right?
