It really sucks, when you leave your house, thinking “oh, no one is going to see me.” then you run into your boss. Or your ex boyfriend.  Or someone you wish didn’t see you looking like you just woke up.

Here are some ways to avoid this fiasco.

1. Never leave the house without your hair brushed. This may seem simple, but some people, I mean, wow. Brush your hair.

2. Don’t leave the house wearing pajamas and/or house slippers. Ever.

3. I would never leave the house without at least wearing mascara and lip gloss. Not that hard.

4. Class up and outfit: put on pearls.

5. I would advise to brush your teeth. Or at least chew gum. Or something.

6. If your wearing a shirt with a stain and you don’t feel like changing it, put on a scarf.

7. Spray yourself with body spray.

8. Bad hair day? Wear a headband.

9. If you haven’t done your nails, and you don’t like them, wear leather gloves. Or fake leather gloves.

10. Don’t go around with headphones in your ears. This may seem like a good way to avoid people, but it’s just rude.

A lot of this may be common sense, but still. You never know.

I must say, I have amazing skin, and I am really lucky. I do a lot to keep it that way, though. I have a few people asking me about what I do, so I shall share it with the rest of the world.

1. I steam my face for approximately 7 minutes. This opens my pores before I go and wash my face.

2. At least three times a week, I exfoliate my face right after I steam it. I only do this three times so that I don’t scratch my skin.

3. After I steam it, I use Clean and Clear 3 in 1 Exfoliating Cleanser. I know I just said I only exfoliate 3 times a week, but the exfoliating beads in this cleanser don’t really do anything for my skin.

4. I use my Clinique Superdefense SPF 25 face lotion. I swear by this lotion.

5. Whenever a pimple pops up, I use my Clean and Clear spot treatment 3 times daily.


So there you have it! That’s my secret! Not that exciting, I know. But still. Do with this info what you will. :]

What skin secrets do you have?

Where I live, fall is starting to take its toll on the landscape and the weather. I LOVE it.  Here are just a little more I love about this wonderful season.

  1. The beautiful trees. And when all of the leaves cover little roads. I absolutely love it. It makes me feel really safe, for some reason.

  2. The amazing clothes. Specifically the new Tommy Hilfiger line, which I love to bits. The deep colours and pretty layers make me want to by the whole store.

  3.  Boots! Yay! I can finally wear them! All sorts of deep colours that I can play with…

  4. Red nail polish! I can Turn my hot pink into deep seductive red. Finally.

5. I totally am going to wear trenches this year. I haven’t in previous years, but this year is going to be different. Especially if I save up money for a Burberry trench. :]

Why do you love fall?!?!
