Amara Organics Retinol Serum Review

I’m no newbie when it comes to Retinol. Actually, I’ve been using retinol steadily everyday for about 3 years now. One of my favorite serums is from Makeup Artist Choice, but their serums are quite pricey. So, after using their products for 3 years, I was excited to try a new serum! Amara organics offered me a chance to try their retinol serum which is 2.5%. The highest that I’ve ever had! Now, retinol is something that your skin has to get used to and for some – it’s very irritating, so be sure to test a a little bit on a patch of your skin first. Some background information about the serum A tried and true age-fighting ingredient that actually works, retinol is by the far the best thing you can do for your skin to combat the signs of aging. Retinol works on a molecular level to repair skin and stimulate collagen, resulting in firmer, smoother, wrinkle-free skin.

Christmas Gifts

  Happy Holidays! The older I get, the less presents I get every year… but that’s okay because I realize that there’s more to Christmas than just gift giving. I was worried I would not get to spend Christmas with my family this year, but I was able to spend a quiet day in with them. Normally, on Christmas Eve I would head up to Brandon’s but this year… my sister, mom and I stayed in. My family isn’t big on Christmas at all – and this was the first year I didn’t have my annual Christmas party so it honestly didn’t feel like Christmas at all! Our house wasn’t decorated, and we didn’t have Christmas breakfast but I still felt very happy. I have such a great family who supports me and looks after me. The day after Christmas, Brandon came up and surprised me and my family with gifts. I am so blessed to have him! I also got a couple of coats from my sister and cothes (not pictured, of course) but I’ll be sure to …

Mini Haul from F21.

  I went shopping at F21 yesterday and were so happy to find that all items on Clearance were an extra 50% off. These items were surprisingly cheap! The shorts and skirt were about 5 dollars. I purchased other items for my vegas trip but decided to take a photo of these because the rest were dresses and just too much work to take all the pics -_-“   Love these ombre shorts, the first kind I’ve ever owned.   In love with the detailing on this shirt.   The reason I chose this skirt was because, although it seems very simple, I believe the color combo can go with anything I wear. If I wear it with a button up shirt, then it’ll look classy. I can also wear it for a night out with the girls to the club or bar hopping! Also, the pockets on the side give it such a nice sophisicated feel. 

OOTD & some new clothing for the store!

      I cheered up this Black lace romper with a colorful kimono. I spent the morning with Bella shopping around for clothing we could add to our store and after a small setback… we were able to buy some cute items for our soft opening! Also, I was able to look around for some giveaway goodies!  Love my Versace sunnies. They really help save my eyes from the harsh glare of the sun! Fresh picks for the store!  Browse around… hopefully you’ll see something you like!
