    Ardell Magnetic Lash Review

    I recently bought the Ardell magnetic lashes and wanted to share my experience. My lashes won’t curl. I mean I have tried everything and no matter what I do they won’t stay. So I heard about these magnetic lashes made by Ardell and decided to try them out!     Ardell makes so many fake lashes with 5 kinds of magnetic lashes. These include the double wispies, double 110, double demi wispies, accents 001, and accents 002. Target has a whole set-up devoted to these lashes and they are only $12! Unfortunately, my store only carries the accents 001 and the double 110 styles. I decided to try the double…

    How To: Plan A Self-Care Day

    It has only been 4 weeks since we started back to school and self-care has never been more needed! There are so many students that need help but only so many hours in a day. It can get really overwhelming. As a social worker, I am BIG on self-care. So, after having a little mental breakdown last week, I decided that I need to actually plan my self-care time. Otherwise, I won’t make it a priority and my mental health will suffer.     What is self-care?   Self-care is an action you do to take care of your physical, spiritual, and mental health.

    Why I tried Nurx and Why You Should Too

    .First of all…you’re probably asking “What the heck is Nurx anyways?” Nurx is a website (they have an app too!) that lets you take your reproductive health back into your own hands.

    Top 30: TV Shows to Watch on Amazon

    I love Amazon Prime. Not only does it give me free shipping on thousands of products on Amazon’s website, but it also gives me access to thousands of TV shows, movies and music. Amazon Prime used to be $99/year.

The month to month option been a real pro for me deciding to keep Prime around.         That being said, I don’t know how many people are…

    August Goals

    Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, it’s off to work we go! August is here, meaning summer is over and it’s time to go back to work/school.
