Lush Haul

My Thoughts: I have not tried a Lush face mask before this one, and I plan to try many more in the future. This fresh face mask soothes the cheeks and removes dirt. It leaves skin feeling smooth and refreshed. I have used this every few days and my acne is decreasing.
2.1 Oz. for $12.95

In-Store Only. Must be kept refrigerated.

Spreading Love & New Camera

Spread love. Please. The world of evil is ridiculous lately. Every weekly b/vlog, I'm talking about horrible acts of lack of humanity that leaves people without family members, friends, and more. Just please, if there is anything you get from this, just spread love. Teach love.

This week I have my new camera! Although I do not use it much for blogging as it is pretty bulky, I am loving having it to take pictures for the blog posts.

My camera came in the mail right before I headed to National Harbor. Trying out my camera on the pups once we arrived, I captured some cute shots.

June 2016 ♥ Monthly Favorites

My favorites for the month of June video is up for viewing (and also at the bottom of this page) even though mother nature did her best to interrupt me as I filmed. However, some of these items just did not get the time nor clarity they deserved. Here is a bit more information on the items, including some new photos and views:

Batiste Dry Shampoo A Hint of Color - Light & Blonde

"Batiste Light and Blonde banishes oily roots and boosts body giving dull, lifeless hair the make over it needs without any water. A hint of color complements light and blonde hair tones and helps blend in root -re-growth of colored, tinted or bleached hair. A quick burst revitalizes hair leaving it feeling clean and fresh. No need to worry about skipping a shampoo."

I love this product as I sometimes hate washing my hair daily and need a refresh before going out. I can just push up my fair and flip it around as I spray to give it a volumized refresh. 

Another Week

It was another week full of working with some little moments of magic added in.

On Saturday, Roxie was hanging out with me and being photogenic, for once.

Isn't she just the cutest? She loves laying on pillows and the moment she gets on my bed, she goes to lay on pillows. It has always been her thing.

Roxie also loves her ears being rubbed. She's not one to show too much emotion or go crazy like Coco does.

An Open Letter to my First Car 🚗

On July 4, 2010, I found you online. After hours of research, my parents agreed to go check you out the next day.

With my parents alongside me, we went to the dealership and test drove you. And a new adventure began.

Six years ago on July 5, I purchased you, my first car. A 2001 Silver Toyota Rav4.

(Can you tell I like exclamation marks on social media?)

Holocaust Memorial Museum

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was very moving and heartbreaking. Unfortunately, the beginning section was so congested, I wanted to leave and come back in the winter. However, it did relax some as people spread out throughout the museum. I did find myself being stepped on, pushed, and walked into. Hopefully, I can go back one day where it is less crowded and truly do a justified photo and video session.

The best way to secure entrance into the museum is to pay a processing fee of $1 and hold tickets for your day on the museum website. Otherwise, the museum usually has very limited space to accommodate walk-ins.
