I love taking a nice, perfectly warm shower, no matter the time of day. In the morning, I use my shower time to refresh and clear my mind for the upcoming day. However, when I take a shower at night, I use it rest my mind and body and to help me slip into slumber easier. For most people, taking a shower is just a daily routine to clean their body. However, for me, I use my shower routine to elevate and transform a daily activity to an extra AF experience.

Although it’s still a little hotter than I would like, I can still feel fall rapidly approaching. Also, all my friends and co-workers with kids sent their little ones back to school this week. So, that’s also a clear indication that fall is coming. Since I’m still not aware of what I what I want to wear this fall, I’ve decided to start with my fall beauty wishlist 2018.

For the most part, I’m a very simple girl with very simple routines. Actually, I feel I thrive when I keep things simple. However, I do find myself being “extra” like Guacamole. One thing that I do that might seem a little excessive to most is my nightly skincare routine for my feet. Our feet hold us up and keep us grounded.

However, with the right attention to your feet, you can keep your feet looking sandal-ready. Also, taking care of your feet can prolong a bomb pedicure, FYI. Looking to reward your feet or just add some extraness to your daily beauty, keep reading.
Have you ever tried something different after doing it one for years? Maybe even decades? Then after trying the new way of doing it, you realize that you’ve pretty much being doing it wrong the whole time. All that time you thought you were excelling at that aspect of life only to realize you were half-stepping. Well, that’s how I felt when I started applying face masks with face brushes and skin spatulas.
When getting professional facial or skin treatment, it’s common for the aesthetician to apply all their fancy creams and concoctions with different applicators. However, I never thought to do the same at home. Instead, I’ve been using my God-given fingers to dig out masks and slather them on my face like an animal. However, since I’ve started to use face brushes to apply my face masks, I can’t picture myself ever going back.
