Lately I've found myself not getting very much proper sleep. I'm up for hours every night, and then during the day I'm dragging all over the place. While I've got a few sleeping aids from my doctor, I find that they are almost too strong and leave me feeling like I've got a sleep hangover, so I try to keep them for emergencies only. Instead, I've been trying to turn to alternatives to get to sleep. Today's post is all about one such delectable smelling alternative!

What's in My Bag? | The H&M Crossbody

whats-in-my-bag-the-h&m-crossbody

Hello, lovelies! I've been seeing What's in My Bag posts making the rounds on other blogs for awhile now, and I thought they looked like so much fun. I'm a nosy person, so I love seeing what everyone carries around with them each day. In the past, I've been the type of girl to carry around large bags. I always felt like I needed to have everything I owned with me at all times. A girl can never be too prepared!

Last year on my honeymoon, my husband and I took a small drawstring backpack with us to carry all our things while we were walking around Disney World. However, it was always such a pain to get something as small as a chapstick out of the bag. It made me wish I had a small crossbody bag to keep my little bits and bobs with me.

5 Jams to Get Fit To

five-jams-to-get-fit-to

When it comes to fitness, nothing makes a workout more fun than having some seriously awesome tunes to pump your body to! I think having a proper workout mix is such a huge part of getting into shape. The songs help you keep to a vigorous pace, they get your heart rate up, and can make workouts more like a dance party than a grueling annoyance. Today I'm bringing you five jams that have been fueling my workouts lately. I can't get enough of these songs, and they always make me ready to bring the heat!

Murad Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser - Review

Murad Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser, $28.00
Over the summer I had my very first facial. I had no idea what the aesthetician would say about my skin or what she'd end up having to do. After shaking off my nerves, and gritting my teeth during the extraction part, the aesthetician told me that I actually had quite good skin. I was shocked! I've struggled with cystic acne and dry, patchy skin, so I just assumed my skin was crap. Instead, I found that I had been fundamentally misunderstanding my skin and using the wrong products which is why my skin was so wacky!

When it comes to my lips, I set aside a little bit of time everyday for some needed TLC. I have always had incredibly dry lips. No matter how much water I drink or lip balm I use, my lips were always in some state of cracking and peeling. That is, until I was introduced to today's sugary sweet product!

e.l.f. Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Review + Swatch

e.l.f. Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, $3.00
As a makeup junkie, I love wearing makeup as much as possible. However, when I'm going to be home for the day, or I only need to run out and grab some groceries, I don't like wearing a full face of products. I like to turn to handy dandy tinted moisturizers and those little complexion miracles, BB creams. Not quite ready to plunk down the cash for the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, I picked up the e.l.f. Studio Tinted Moisturizer, and unfortunately I wasn't impressed.
