Life: One Lovely Blog Award


Let's be honest, ever since I went on disability from work, I've not been able to schedule a post to go at midnight on my scheduled days. I don't know if I deserve this award for that reason, but thank you Claudia for nominating me anyway. Make sure to visit her blog once you're done here :)

Here are the rules for the One Lovely Blog Award:
1. Take time to thank the person who nominated you. Also, use the award logo.
2. List 7 facts about yourself.
3. Nominate other awesome bloggers you would like to get to know better and follow the person who nominated you.

7 Facts About Me

  1. I love sushi - if I can eat sushi every week, I would.
  2. I am a proofreader on the side. Cheeky little self promo: visit my website if you are an author or know one that's looking for a proofreader :)
  3. I also love to read lots of books! I'm currently reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth. It's a bit slow for me, but I'm hoping it will get more exciting soon.
  4. Sometimes I daydream of driving around my favorite YouTubers in my car :)
  5. My favorite skincare brand is Alba Botanica.
  6. I don't know how to dance.
  7. One day, I want to inspire people and have a voice that can make a difference (ooh, deep! haha).

I nominate the following lovely people:
Britnee Blogs - I tweet her to remind her to do a blog post sometimes. I think this award would allow me to get to know her more.
Thatsaleaf - I just recently started following her and I'd like to get to know her more
Just A Brief Moment - I don't really have the chance to chat with her so I'd like to get to know more


Thanks again, Claudia for the lovely award! I hope you all enjoyed this post!

Beauty: Empties - Body Care



So many empty products!!! I thought I'd share with you products that I finished :)

Body Lotion
I used to like Bath and Body works until I started only using paraben-free products. Now I'm just trying to use up all my B&BW lotions. I've already finished Cherry Blossom and Moonlight Path.

Hand Soaps
I LOVE hand soaps. It's one of my necessary luxuries. I love the B&BW hand soaps whether they are deep cleansing or foaming. I've finished Aloha Orchid (my fave), Japanese Cherry Blossom, and Apple Blossoms. I've also finished a more affordable alternative which are Dial in Cherry Blossom and Almond and Aloe.

Body Wash/Shower Gel
I really enjoy the Suave Naturals body washes. My fave is the Creamy Almond & Verbena, and I've also finished Wild Cherry Blossom and Sweet Pea and Violet. I've also finished a bottle of the B&BW Japanese Cherry Blossom shower gel, as well as The Body Shop's travel size of the same scent. I didn't quite like the mini size because it didn't really have the smell I was expecting. They said maybe because it was old - I got it from Marshall's.

Feminine Wash
TMI!! I just use the generic brands... Do you use feminine washes?

Shampoo/Conditioner
I've finished the Organix Cherry Blossom Ginseng Shampoo, but I still have some conditioner left. Am I the only that always ends up with a lot more conditioner and finishes the shampoo first?? I've also finished the Suave Professionals with Macadamia Oil and White Orchid. It smells like Hilary Duff's fragrance, and that's why I bought it. I didn't quite finish the bottles because I found it just leaves me with dandruff. Not cool.

I hope you enjoy this post! Let me know what products you've been absolutely loving!

Hi everyone! Sorry I missed a post and this one is late. This week have been quite crazy. Long story short, I'm on a disability leave from work because my tendonitis just wasn't getting better. I'm trying to hustle to get the authorization for a pain specialist approved ASAP, but there's only so much I can do. Anyway, I wanted to share with you my favorite song this week...

It's so weird that I've been loving Ariana Grande's songs nowadays. I used to dislike everything about her and now her songs are some of my favorites. I think her singing better songs also contributes to my appreciation. Though, I still wish she'd be more "normal" when she's live. I don't like the track in the background and her outfits, but hey, we can't all have what we want, right? She's dubbed a human cupcake after all...

Love Me Harder is her newest ballad featuring The Weekend, and I think it's so beautiful. The lyrics itself don't have much substance, but the song sounds amazing. Finally, she's articulating better and I think that's great progress.





Have you heard this song? What did you think?
