Liebster Blog Award Nomination

I've never done an award or tag before, but I thought that the Liebster award was so sweet, and a good chance for my readers to get to know me a bit better. Liebster is a german word that means sweetheart, beloved person or darling. Thank you so much to Nicole from Hey, Let's Makeup for nominating me :)

First impressions: Bioré deep pore charcoal cleanser

A few weeks ago, my sister found a sample for the Bioré Deep Pore Cleanser in a Seventeen Magazine that she got, and she gave it to me. I tried it as soon as I could, and I was both happy and disappointed with the results. Here are my first impressions :)

DIY Autumn burlap bunting

If you can't already tell by my blog banner, I love bunting. I think that it's so cute, and it's a great way to decorate a plain space. This autumn bunting is made of burlap, and is completely customizable to your personal taste. Everything—from the size of the triangles to the word it creates—can be personalized. I hope you enjoy making this festive craft as much as I did!

Skincare picks: La Roche Posay

I don't use these products everyday, because they actually belong to my mom. They're just so good that I end up using them when my skin really needs some help. The foaming face wash, toning water and lotion really help to get my skin back where I want it to be when it gets a little bit out of hand. To be honest, this combination of products have greatly reduced the number of breakouts that I have, as well as lessened the intensity of them. Not only do they help me with any bumpiness or redness, the products have a pleasant smell, and fell great on the skin!

La Roche Posay is a great brand for people with sensitive skin like me, and the prices average around $35 per product. I find that this is great because it is slightly cheaper than something that you might buy at a store like Sephora, yet the quality is still just as great. Even if your budget is really low like mine is, I think that it's definitely worth saving up for a product or two, especially if your skin is sensitive to cheaper drugstore products. Remember that healthy looking skin actually needs to be healthy; if you're going to splurge on something, splurge on the skincare products to keep your base healthy and clear... makeup can come after.
