My Inexpensive Daily Skincare Routine for Adult Acne-Prone Skin

I want to preface this by saying the combination of products I am about to share is what has worked for the last two years to keep my skin clear. However, over the last year, it has become more and more important to me to replace my everyday products with ones made from cleaner ingredients. I started by swapping out my household cleaning essentials and doing away with my beloved Bath & Body Works candles and Wallflowers and adopting an essential oils lifestyle. I then made the switch to an aluminum-free deodorant (you can read about that here), and I am now in the process of identifying products in my skincare and beauty routine that need to be overhauled. Some of the products I currently use are not the cleanest formulas, but the combination of them dramatically improved my adult acne-prone skin. Over the next several months I will be working to identify organic, cruelty-free, paraben-free products to replace my current skincare with (specifically my daily moisturizer). If you have skincare products you love that are considered “clean,” let me know so I can add them to my list!

I have struggled with acne since I was a teenager. I’m talking about deep, painful cystic bumps that do not go away or get better with any ol’ over-the-counter acne wash and topical ointment.

I have had a blast decorating our new house and making it a home we will enjoy for years to come.

While I love picking out new furniture and decor, I am not exactly a fan of spending a ton of money on any of it. Especially on throw pillows.

A couple weeks ago I shared on Instagram my favorite cozy corner in my home — in my master bathroom, to be specific  — and so many of you loved the macrame plant hangers I have above my bathtub.

I continue to receive direct messages asking me where I purchased those little darlings, but unfortunately they are no longer in stock at Target.

However, I was able to find some comparable ones on Amazon for you — some of them at a better price than what I paid for mine! Continue reading “Macrame Plant Hangers”

Amazon Roundup /// 6 Things You Need If You Are TTC

Disclosure: Contains affiliate links. 

A few months ago I shared that my husband and I have been trying to conceive since December and so far haven’t had any success.

The last several months have been a rollercoaster ride of emotions and stress for both of us, but despite all of the negatives, it’s still an exciting time in our life together as we wait for a miracle (if you have ever been TTC, you know that a baby is, in fact, a miracle).

With that being said, here are the six things I keep stocked in my bathroom while we are trying for a baby. The best part is, they’re all available on Amazon Prime so I never have to physcially shop for them in the store. Whenever I’m running low on something, I simply submit my Amazon order and it arrives in two days!
