Winter Saviour: Frank's Body Scrub

BeautySeerlee Archer2 Comments

I'm sure you all have heard of Frank's Body Scrub, but If not I wanted to give my take on it! In the winter, this is my go to beauty fav. It retails for about $20, and may very well be the best scrub I've ever used.

It's exfoliating, moisturizing, and gentle on the most sensitive skin. Not to mention, over time with continued use it, reduces the look of scars and stretch-marks. 

Ultimately, the result is skin so soft you could cry. 

 

Monday Moodboard #1: Winter Blues

Seerlee ArcherComment

The worst is far from over. 

Winter has really just settled in. 

So here goes:

Freezing temperatures. 

Cozy scarfs. 

Cashmere sweaters. 

Whistling kettles.

Extra long coffee dates - to hide from the cold. 

And hitting the snooze button one too many times, because leaving your warm bed is actually the hardest thing you've ever done.

Lipstick Worth Loving

This may very well be the best lipstick I've ever purchased. 

With sleek packaging and high pigmentation, ColourPop's Lippie Stix are a game changer.

They go on smoothly, feel just like lip balm and last for hours. 

Not to mention - it's not tested on animals! 

At $5 a piece, you really can't go wrong. 

Cleaning Up After Christmas

Seerlee Archer14 Comments

Getting rid of the old, In with the new. 

Laundry, laundry and more laundry. 

Striping the guest bed. 

Opening remaining gifts.

Admiring gifts that got looked over in the hustle and bustle. 

Raiding your refrigerator of leftovers. 

Eating all the cookies or tossing out all the cookies. 

Turning in hot chocolate for green tea and green smoothies. 

Making "late" 2015 resolutions. 

Hitting the gym.

Back to work. 

Back to routine. 

Cleaning up after Christmas looks different for everyone. 

The holidays have this new beginning effect similar to September. 

Which is good. 

Sometimes we need a little push to believe that a new beginning is even possible. 

But if there's anything I've learned this year. 

There isn't an instant resolution that will fix all of your problems, and heal all of your brokenness. 

All you can do is keep breathing. 

And that's not suppose to sound hopeless. 

Maybe learning that there is no quick definite resolution - is a resolution in itself. 

Maybe the resolution is life. 

Maybe we make goals. 

And maybe we even achieve them. 

But maybe we count the very simple act of breathing as success too. 

So however you choose to clean up after Christmas, wether with big resolutions, or no resolutions at all, just know that so long as you're still breathing, you're off to a great year.
