Truer words were never spoken:)

If you want to be mad at me, fine. But before you go off, please allow me to explain. Let’s look at what a trend is exactly. From Wikipedia:

A fad, sometimes called a trend, meme or a craze, is any form of behavior that develops among a large population and is collectively followed with enthusiasm for some period, generally as a result of the behavior’s being perceived as novel in some way.[1] A fad is said to “catch on” when the number of people adopting it begins to increase rapidly. The behavior will normally fade quickly once the perception of novelty is gone.[1]

The specific nature of the behavior associated with a fad can be of any type including language usage, apparel, financial investment, and even food. Apart from general novelty, fads may be driven by emotional excitement, peer pressure, or even a desire to be outside social norms (

You know that feeling of getting a great close shave, then slipping under the covers of a freshly made bed.  Cool, crisp sheets and soft smooth legs.  I couldn’t stop rubbing my legs together like a cricket!

Oil Cleansing Method for Oily Skin

So I’ve got oily skin.  Not just oily, but shiny, slick, acne prone skin.  I’ve used everything from Pro-active to home remedies.  The more I tried to “control” my oil, the oilier my skin got.  So I decided to give oil cleansing a try after seeing it on pinterest! I’ll post a link to the site where I got my recipe.  I use about 70% sunflower seed oil and 30% castor oil.

I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin.  I don’t produce as much oil and I’ve yet to see a blemish in the past week!  Keep in mind, everyone’s skin is different and this may not work for everyone.

Strawberry cheese cake cake!

No that wasn’t a typo.  I’m baking a cake for my sister’s birthday!  She loves cheese cake and cake and strawberries so I thought I’d combine the two.  I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
