....These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

  • Banana & Honey Facials - Mix (1) Ripe Banana with (1) tablespoon of honey (when my skin is dry)
  • Banana & Yogurt Facials - Mix (1) Ripe Banana with (1) tablespoon of full fat yogurt (when my skin is oily)
  • Natural Makeup Remover & Oil Cleanser - Mix (1) Tablespoon Jojoba Oil (1) Tablespoon Castor Oil & (2) Drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil - Perfect for oily, acne prone skin. Be careful using around the eye area (the tea tree oil pings a bit) 
  • Pretty Apothecary Bottles - I love putting my homemade concoctions in apothecary bottles! You can buy them for about $2-3 dollars at your local thrift store [always check the thrift stores first, as stores marked "vintage" tend to be a little more pricey]
  • Horsetail, Nettle, & Coltsfoot Hair Oil - This makes a killer herbal hair oil.  Take 8 ounces of Olive Oil or Jojoba Oil (two of the best oils for infusing) and add (3) tablespoons each of Horsetail, Nettle, and Coltsfoot Herbs. Place in a dark cabinet for about 2 months, shaking once every two weeks. Strain oil through cheesecloth, and bottle. 
  • Lavendar Infused Jojoba Body Oil - Take 8 ounces of Jojoba Oil, and pour it in a Mason Jar. Add 1/4 cup of dried Lavender, cover, and place in a dark cabinet for about 2 months [shake once every two weeks]. Strain oil through cheesecloth, and bottle. 
  • Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Conditioner - I am little late jumping on the Herbal Essence bandwagon, but better late than never. This stuff is cheap, and it works. 
  • Target Brand Teeth Whitening Strips - Works just as good as Crest Whitening Strips! (I use the kind that dissolves)
  • Nars Eyeshadow - Love this stuff, you will see why as soon as I get over this wretched cold [my eyes are super puffy and not ready for tutorials at this very moment]. It's HIGHLY pigmented, and pops against darker skin tones.
  • OPI Nail Polish - Gives me flawless color everytime; Essie polish comes in a close second! 
  • How to Cook Everything: A cookbook by Mark Bittman that received almost 5 stars on Amazon; An indispensable tool for the kitchen.


  1. I was late jumping on the bandwagon for Hello Hydration too... but I'm glad I did! It was on sale at Target for $2.99 so I picked it up and it works great. It replaced my Suave Tropical Coconut conditioner. Oh yeah, and I just discovered Twisted Sista products. They're great too...

  2. Great review, I'm going to try a few of these.

  3. @South Loop Social Light Twisted Sista huh? I am going to have to see what's what...I swear, you are going to have me broke as I don't know what...loll
