The Clarisonic Commandments

The Clarisonic Commandments

So by now, everybody should have a Clarisonic. If you don’t you need to get one, like, ASAP. Not only is it a great tool for daily cleaning of the skin. It helps give you a gentle exfoliation as well as a great blow to the skin and helps your skin care penetrate the skin.

Even though the Clarisonic has been around for a while now there are a few rules that I would like to reiterate. Just because if you’re like me you get comfortable and you constantly find yourself saying it’s fine I’ll take care of it later. Which isn’t good when it comes to the tools you use for skin care because if they get too bad you either have to replace them or risk serious infection. So let’s get into the don’ts and do of your Clarisonic.

CC: Skincare.com

Always replace your brush head not only when it starts looking dingy you want to replace it at least every 2 months just because it is something that you exfoliate with so it Harbors dead skin cells no matter how well your rinse. You don’t want to put anything in your skin while trying to get it out.

Make sure that you don’t leave your Clarisonic in the shower since after you wash your face it could get water trapped in between the brush head and the base and get mold. So if you do leave it in the shower or you choose to wash your face first and leave it in the shower while you finish up when you’re done from time to time make sure that you remove that brush head so it can air out and you won’t have to worry about mold.

Make sure you keep track of the top the one that comes with the brush head just because and it could just be a me thing but I don’t like my bristles touching too many surfaces just because every surface in your bathroom pretty much has bacteria on it and you don’t want that getting on your brush head the brush head has holes in it so your Clarisonic should still be able to dry out but make sure you keep that fresh head so you don’t have to worry about like anything gross getting on it

Don’t use any exfoliators with the Clarisonic it would be too aggressive on your skin because Sonic already exfoliate your skin and to use another exfoliator on top of that is a bit of an Overkill and it can make your skin Raw which isn’t good also exfoliator is more of a scrub like it has little granules in it they can travel deep inside your Clarisonic and really mess up the function and mess up the gears of it so if you do choose to use an exfoliator make sure that you use it after not even before even if you don’t use your Clarisonic just be very careful

Revolve Promotes Fat Shaming With This Sweatshirt

Revolve Promotes Fat Shaming With This Sweatshirt

CC:Fashionista

It’s almost 2018 going on to 2019, and we still have to tell clothing stores to not say this and to not do that.

Recently it was found that Revolve has a sweatshirt that has the most disgusting quote telling women ” Being fat is not beautiful it’s an excuse.” Let’s pause for a second, who the hell approved this? Who said yes this is the message that we want to send teenage girls.  Whomever that was needs to be fired, now!

Revolve released a statement saying that it this was a line to help benefit charity. The brand notes that the $168 sweatshirts are to benefit charity, and there was a launch intended to announce the project with the women involved, but that Revolve put the sweatshirts up on the site early.

There’s more there’s a whole line of shirts that say these awful things. It’s only made worse when these are things that were actually said to people such as Lena Dunham was told she was a “Horrible Result of Modern Feminism”, Suki Waterhouse “If you translated a bum onto her face, she’d have a better face” and Cara Delevingne “Too boney to be boned”. With a little font under the quote reading as told to “insert Instagram handle here.”

I guess they are trying to take back what was said to them and reclaim it like the word slut or something. That is kind of lost when it’s taken out of context. Plus the Revolve doesn’t cater to larger women so it kind of backfires like you’re not really empowering the sweatshirt alone goes up to XL, but the profits goes to charity.  So they need to take and hold this L as well as scrap that whole project. I’m not wearing anything that might be offensive to someone else.

LPA company who made the sweatshirts for Revolve issued this statement:

What was conceived as a statement on today’s internet culture and its treatment of women has gone terribly wrong. We at LPA were so honored when Lena Dunham agreed to work with us on this capsule collection and, most importantly, thrilled at the exposure our work would give to such a serious issue. We coordinated each aspect of the collection itself, to the chosen quotes to the design. We were proud of our final product, the conversation it would start and — most importantly — the direct effect it would have on such an impactful charity in “Girls Write Now.” Where we faltered was not intention, sincerity or conception, but in my own lack of communication that lead to how the collection was portrayed on Revolve.com and the pre-mature release of the e-commerce imagery, a day prior to launch. We were planning to launch with an image of Lena in the sweatshirt along with our statement and explanation. I cannot apologize enough to my good friend Lena, and others, to all of LPA’s fans. We work hard to make the right choices every day, understanding the platform and the opportunity that we are lucky enough to have, and we are so sorry to have let you all down.

We know the quotes within the collaboration were shocking, which was entirely the point. To spotlight how we’ve normalized the way we bully and speak negatively to one another via the internet.

Given this controversy, we support Revolve.com and join them in their removal of the collection from our site. We are also proud to make our own donation to “Girls Write Now” — in honor to their commitment to this admirable cause.

What are your thoughts? Should they scrap it or is it ok cause they’re donating it to charity? Sound off in the comments.

Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Show Is The Thing Of Dreams

Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Show Is The Thing Of Dreams

Rihanna once again shows us that she and everyone else is beautiful and unique in her new Savage x Fenty line. She had models of all shapes and sizes even some that were pregnant in the show.

 

What I love most is, she’s not even making a big deal about it, she’s doing it like a true savage and not holding a huge press conference telling us this long journey she had. She simply believes that everyone should be showcased in their own beautiful and unique way. At least that’s what I got from the show.

 

Not to mention her lingerie line is just beautiful full of sheer sexy long satin robes and furry slippers all with Brooklyn Navy Yard (lol the Navy Rih ain’t slick). It was like you were in the garden of Eden but the serpent was making the rules. Check out the photos of the models and looks below and let me know what you think.

I Practice Hypnosis And You Should To

I Practice Hypnosis And You Should To

budda

When you hear the word hypnosis, people are on guard, they think that it’s either fake or something dangerous. It’s not as dangerous as ‘Get Out’ would have you believe (when used in a positive way) and it does work. Let me explain.

You remember in an earlier post (read here) when I mentioned that I was suffering from some negative thoughts? Well, a few days later I couldn’t shake those thoughts.

I decided to train my brain to let go of those thoughts, in other words, I hypnotized my self. That’s all hypnosis is making your brain do what you want it to do.

Now just to clear up somethings, you can’t unknowingly be hypnotized (like in ‘Get Out’). You cant have an idle conversation then someone snaps their fingers and you are at their whim. Some people can’t even be hypnotized. You need to be in a relaxed state and a willing participant. Also, you can snap yourself out of it It’s Your Brain!

After my hypnosis session, now when I have a negative thought I’m taken back to my session and it calms and relaxes me and before I know it the thought is gone.  According to WebMD, Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy (the correct term) has been shown to help with..

  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • phobias
  • Obesity
  • Asthma
  • Quitting Smoking
  • irritable bowel Syndrom

If you’re interested in trying I recommend Training Your Mind To Let Go Of Thoughts That Don’t Serve You by Suzanne Robichaud. It’s the one I used and it works wonders, remember to leave yourself open to the idea of change and it will come to you.
