Cathy and I, decided to hang out and catch up after church. It then occurred to me that i had not updated this blog with an OOTD post in a while.

This is more an “informal” OOTD blog post.

For Fall/Winter, I’m kinda into oversize sweaters, sweatshirts, Cardigans.

I’m also into the 90’s fashion at the moment. Love it ūüôā

Style Crush: Les Twins

If you don’t know Les Twins, I seriously don’t know what else to say, other than get to know them. They are french twins from Sarcelle France. Been dancing since they were kids and they have¬†modeled¬†for ¬†designers like Jean Paul Gaultier etc. What i love about them is their originality, they are different in their approach to dance and fashion. Their signature Afro, backward pants, and amazing dance moves keeps them ahead of the crowd.

Honestly though, forget about everything else and watch them dance!

These kids are simply beasts on the dance floor….what?! I love how they tell stories with their dance…Just amazing! They make me wish i honed in my dancing skill ūüė¶

Their style is pretty much hip-hop influenced and very street in expression.
I am in awe of their talent!

Skin Care Tip for oily/acne prone skin….

Spring is officially here! While most people are rejoicing, Your girl is weeping. Why? Because, this means summer will be here shortly. For those of us living in Houston, that means sweltering heat! You have never experienced summer heat until you experience Houston’s summer. So humid, slimy, greasy, hot, ughhhh….I shudder just thinking about it. For those who have oily skin like me,summer means your ¬†sebaceous gland goes into over drive producing oil enough to fry an egg on ones face! This can clog pores and lead to irritating break outs. I have a little trick I use during the summer months to keep shine and clogged pores at bay. You can also use this cheap trick if you simply don’t want your makeup dripping down your face during the summer on a cute day out. ¬†MILK OF MAGNESIA!

Yup…you read right…..

while Milk of magnesia was not created to cure oily skin or acne, it sure is an inexpensive and¬†effective¬†way to keep the shine away. It was originally prescribed by doctors to relieve¬†¬†constipation¬†and other gastrointestinal issues. It’s a gentle, kinder laxative compared to others. ¬†Although, now, most people use it on their skin. it is still wildly popular for its original intent.

I’m not a doctor and I don’t understand the science behind this, all I know though, is that it works great for me and a couple of people!

How to Apply to Skin:

1. Cleanse skin with whatever you usually use

2. Use a moisturizer on  your skin

3. Using just a thin layer, apply the milk of magnesia all over the face with a cotton ball. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY!

4. Allow to dry and you can apply your regular makeup if you choose

Benefits:

It tightens pores

Clears acne

Acts as a makeup primer

It keeps the shiny appearance of oily skin away

(I recommend using the original non-flavored formula)

Try it!
