Hello Beauties!

On the last day of school, after all of the stress of finals, I went around my town and shot some ballerina photos! I’m no professional, so don’t expect much, but I had so much fun and it was such a treat after all of that dreaded studying. Also, don’t worry, I had my amazing friend who does photography take these photos, I’m not that person that goes around with a tripod to take photos of myself… Not publicly at least.

This post is meant to be more photos than writing, so I will be signing off now! Fashion Friday is tomorrow though, and I have a really cool post ready! Otherwise you can read my last post about the easiest way to take care of your eyebrows at home! Until next time…

Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks,

15 Ways To Love Yourself!

Hello My Beauties!

Now, we all go through times of insecurities. Maybe your eyebrows are crooked and now you can’t stop looking at them? Or you’ve just found another pimple? Maybe you were just turned down for an interview, a job, or a date?

All of these things hurt us in different ways. To some they mean nothing, while to others they hurt like hell and create a lot of self doubt.

I always like to dress up when I’m feeling down. The only way to feel sexy is to look sexy, right? But sometimes it’s bigger than that. Sometimes that feeling just doesn’t go away and we feel more and more self-concious or inadequate.

I get it. I’ve been there many times. But you can’t let those negative feelings hold you down. That’s the opposite of progress guys, that’s not what we want right now. We want to kick those feelings in the ass! Make them our bitches (so to speak). You don’t deserve to feel bad about yourself, none of us do! We’re AMAZING!

Now that I’ve got you guys riled up with all those swear words, let’s move onto solving this problem.

I usually peruse the internet hunting for that one awesome article that will tell me how to feel better, and it usually works. This time I found an especially great one that I want to share with all of you!

Can you believe that all of that was leading up to a video?! Well, it was! Watch my video to see the 15 things that you can do to reconnect with yourself, and stay updated to see photos of me doing those exact things!

Also, if you EVER need anyone to talk to, I’m here to listen, advise, deliver revenge, etc, etc.

Disappointing Products!

Hello My Beauties!

I just uploaded my latest video, Disappointing Products #1! So if you want to know what products I didn’t like then this is the video for you.

I also have products that I never used, or that I’ve very lightly used, because I got them in the wrong shade. Because there is no real point in throwing out a perfectly good product, I’ve researched a couple of reliable organizations that I can donate them to. Those links are down below if you guys want to do the same, I really encourage it!

*I want to stress the fact that I’m only donating items that are in good condition and still usable! Any of the bad products or products that have been heavily used will not be given away.*

My Relaxation Day

Hello My Beauties!

So this is long overdue (what can you do?), but after finals my friend Grace and I had a relaxation day filled with foot soaking, face masks, and an AMAZING sexy serial-killer. I made sure to take as many photos as possible, but honestly it was mostly us glued to the TV screen 🙂 I hope that you enjoy my loves!

The Beginning

We started off the day with all of our necessary items. These included soft blankets, good books, and lip balm! Honestly what else do you need?

Breakfast Time!

Next we ate a balanced (sorta… not really) breakfast while we cozied up on the couch! I had two slices of toast with raspberry jelly, a blueberry greek yogurt cup, and some raspberries. I can’t lie it was really, really good! And also probably one of the most put together meals I’ve ever had.

The Middle

We read that lemon water is perfect for a day of detoxing, so we practically filled my water pitcher with sliced lemons! I personally love this small trick! It made me feel very refreshed, and I drank a lot more water than I normally do. This is also a great trick if your water has a funky taste due to different minerals in your pipes!

Next to the fantabulous water we had a couple of Fiber One bars, some nail polish and lip balm, and finally Grace’s awesome sugar scrub/foot-soak-oil-stuff (it’s homemade)! We also had The Fall on in the background, which you guys should really watch if you like sexy Irish serial killers.

The Foot Bath

Then we went on to soaking our feet with two teaspoons of the sugar scrub in each bowl. It took a while to get the water to be just the right temperature, but it was totally worth it! While our feet were being pampered, we sipped cups of chamomile tea and continued to binge-watch The Fall. Really guys, you gotta watch it.

Face Mask Time

We then went onto creating our homemade face mask. Both of us have been suffering with some not-enjoyable acne as of late, so we chose an egg white, honey, and lemon juice mask. For this you need 1 egg white, 1/2 teaspoon honey, and some lemon juice. Not a lot, but some. We used half a lemon for this batch, so if you are just making it for one person then use 1/4  or 1 teaspoon. We then applied the mask with an E.L.F foundation brush and washed it off after 15 minutes. Afterwards my skin was so much smoother and my pimples were not as red as before!

I’M BACK!

Hello My Beauties!

I’ve missed you so, so, so much during the time that I was gone. I took a well-deserved break from Youtube and this blog while I studied for finals, but now that those are over I’m back in the game!

I’m really excited to be back, and I’m filled with new ideas for my channel. But I want to be able to dictate what/when I film and upload more. I don’t want Youtube and making videos to control my life, and taking this break has kinda brought me down to Earth and I was able to reconnect with the people I love more.

So please enjoy this new video, stay tuned for more, but remember that it might not always be on a schedule. The best things in life are done without planning or expectancy, they are just created in a moment. I don’t want to expect myself to have to have make something on a deadline because then it won’t be as good as it could have been.

Anyways, enough of my rambling! Watch the video kids, and feel free to tell me what you think!

Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks,

Marin XO
