Back to School Hairstyles!

The first day of school is less than a month away. DARN! I have been seeing back to school hairstyle videos on YouTube a lot, but most of the hairstyles take way too long for a busy school morning. Here are some super simple back to school hairstyles:

1. The side braid (or fishtail) - Simply part your hair on the side and braid (or fishtail braid) your hair so it hangs in the front. You can add a cute bow to make this hairstyle super girly!
2. Messy bun - Put your hair in a ponytail and then wrap the hair around the ponytail holder to create an adorbs bun. Secure with another hair elastic or bobby pins. You can also make a bun using a sock (for the sock bun look).
3. Quick curls - After brushing your hair, use your curling iron to put a few curls in the bottom of your hair. Instead of curling ALL of your hair, just do the bottoms of the hair so you get a cute and easy look.
4. Waves or curls while you sleep! - Sleep with a sock bun or side braid in to get curls or waves respectively. These methods are perfect if you have to get to school early!
5. Ponytail - Ponytails are never overrated. You can quickly style a low or high ponytail and then put bows, etc. in them to make them totally perfect!
6. Leave your hair!!!!! - Just brush your hair and add a hairband, scarf, etc. to your natural hair. Nothing is better than rocking what God gave you. :)

My Skincare Routine

Ahhhh Skincare...... I have had my fair share of zits and I know how important Skincare is to most people. I never had acne but would get large, red zits from time to time. After I started using this process, I only usually get pimples around my "time of month" (if ya get what I'm saying.. :P). Here is an overview of my complete Skincare routine:

In the morning:
-After I get out of bed I wash my face with the Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Acne Wash from Neutrogena
-I then use a Cotten pad to wipe my face with the Clear Pore Oil-Eliminating Astringent from Neutrogena
-After my face is dry, I apply the e.l.f Zit Zapper to my "problem areas" (T-zone, nose, and chin)
-After that dries, I apply the Clearasil Vanishing Acne Treatment Cream to my "problem areas" as well.

Then I go about my day trying not to touch my face, and drinking plenty of water to keep my skin healthy.

At night:
-In the shower, after shampooing, etc, I use the Walgreen brand Blackhead & Blemish Control Apricot Scrub and scrub all my "problem areas"
-I then wash my face (in the shower) with the Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Acne Wash from Neutrogena
-Then I use the Astringent, Zit Zapper, and cream after I get out of the shower in the same steps I used in the morning.

This process is quite complex but works for me! What is your Skincare routine? Comment down below!

Review: e.l.f. Essential Nourishing Cuticle Pen

Hey guys! Today I have a review for you on something that only costs $1.00!!!!! This e.l.f product helps nourish your cuticles and nails to help them grow nice and strong. After I cut my nails and take off my nail polish, I apply this all over the bare nail and cuticle. It is AMAZING! My nails use to chip all the time and ever since I started using this product, they are stronger and look so much healthier and prettier. The oils in the formula also help your nails grow faster. I totally recommend this product!
Pros:
-Cheap
-helps nails grow faster
-helps nails be stronger
-makes cuticles healthy
-no smell

Cons:
-NO CONS
