Take Care of Yourself – Beauty Edition

Not to brag but I’ve been taking my self-care beauty routine really seriously lately and my skin feels fantastic! Okay, let’s be clear about this. I’m definitely not a beauty guru or expert and highly doubt what I’m saying on this post is 100% correct. However, I just wanted to share a few things I have been regularly using in my routine to really feel like a million bucks and I want you to feel that way too.

The following post is lists out products I include in my routine and brief explanations of what I personally do to make myself feel like a new person. Hope you enjoy!

College Humor

College Humor has been a successful sketch comedy Youtube channel ever since I was in middle school or highschool and that was like 10 years ago.

Check out ‘Technically a Meal’ for a fun take on a broke adult life meal.

Title: The Beauty of the Moment
Author: Tanaz Bhathena
Publication: February 26th 2019
Synopsis:

Susan is the new girl—she’s sharp and driven, and strives to meet her parents’ expectations of excellence. Malcolm is the bad boy—he started raising hell at age fifteen, after his mom died of cancer, and has had a reputation ever since.

Susan’s parents are on the verge of divorce. Malcolm’s dad is a known adulterer.

Susan hasn’t told anyone, but she wants to be an artist. Malcolm doesn’t know what he wants—until he meets her.

Love is messy and families are messier, but in spite of their burdens, Susan and Malcolm fall for each other. The ways they drift apart and come back together are testaments to family, culture, and being true to who you are.
