Hello from the Cornfields of Ohio!
I'm currently an RN, BSN student who enjoys watching Gossip Girl and makeup tutorials, shopping, eating at one-of-a-kind places, and traveling the world in her (rare) free time. I hope to go to many more countries in my lifetime and learn about their cultures--particularly about their fashion and cuisine.
As an aficionado of all things beauty-related, I'm up to trying almost any new product, trend, or process!
Love this dish soap! I frequently hand wash several of my more delicate dishes such as water bottles, wooden spoons, knives, etc. Not only does this soap smell wonderful, but a little goes a long way and it cleans my dishes extremely well--even greasy or food-crusted ones. The soap also rinses off nicely and doesn't overly dry out my hands. I appreciate the absence of harsh chemicals in this product!
Tide Pods are wonderful me since I live in a dorm and do my laundry about once a week. If I have a larger load, I will occasionally have to use two pods, however. Usually, though, one pod cleans a regular sized load without leaving any stale or sticky feeling only clothes.
As a college student living in a dorm, these are perfect for me! I can quickly wipe-down dust and disinfect my surfaces in minutes. I also appreciate the low price and quantity. Another great thing is that the wipes go a long way. If I am cleaning out my mini fridge, I am able to use just two wipes without them drying out. I also have a smaller pack of these in my car!
This is one of my all-time favorite shows! I love the dynamics of the characters and the growth they experience throughout the show. The main characters are portrayed by incredibly talented and believable actors and actresses. The only thing I am disappointed with, and I feel like this is common with many TV shows, the ending was a bit of a let-down. I expected the same quality throughout, but felt like the last few seasons/episodes lacked in comparison.
I recently started using this product about once a week, and it's incredible! At first, it seemed to make my skin breakout more often. However, I realized my skin needed to just get used to the new product and be deep cleaned by the clay. The mask always leaves my face super smooth and refreshed by morning. (I do the mask at bedtime because it does leave my face fairly red.) Also, as a tip to new users, always mix with pure Apple Cider Vinegar (I use Bragg's) because water will make it clumpy and runny. I highly recommend adding this product to your beauty regimen--and it's at a price you cannot beat!
As always, Crabtree & Evelyn never disappoints to make me feel luxurious and beautiful when using their products. This body wash fills up my shower with a gorgeous, fresh aroma. I only wish the scent would last longer on my skin...But, out of all shower gels I've used to date, Crabtree & Evelyn's remains near the top of the list!
Although I like Colgate toothbrushes for the most part, I prefer soft bristles. However, I do like the shape and size of this toothbrush. It does a good job reaching into crevices and in the back of my mouth. You can also use one of these toothbrushes to clean retainers.
This mouthwash is very refreshing and leaves a minty flavor in my mouth for several hours. I don't use it everyday, but I highly recommend using it a couple times each week. It's also great if you don't have time to brush your teeth in a rushed situation. I also use it to soak my plastic tray retainer in during the daytime. It keeps it clean and odor-free.
I used a couple boxes of the Classic Vivid Whitestrips several years ago after I had my braces removed. They did wonders for the yellow stains I had. The whiteness, although it has faded a bit over time, has remained overall! I have only had to complete the treatment one other time in order to get satisfactory results.
Peppermint Patties are an old favorite that freshens the breath and gives you just the right amount of a chocolate fix! They're not expensive, but have a quality taste and lingers after you finish it. I don't feel guilty about the sugar or calories after having one, because they're also not too sweet.
