Product Review – 100% Pure and Natural Beard Oil

I confess: I’m a bit of a beard lover! My guy really loves his beard too, but he’s a bit indecisive, live a lot of men, so he goes between being bearded and clean-shaven a lot. Unfortunately, this creates quite a bit of irritation for his skin, with little red bumps popping up all over his neck and chin area. He doesn’t really love the way it feels, and red bumps all over your neck and face can make even the most confident man feel a bit self-conscious!

So I finally got him to try out this beard oil. I love this oil because of the soft nutty-minty scent to it. He’s tried others, but some of the beard treatments that he used smelled funny and made kissing less pleasant for me..He didn’t complain about the smell, but his sense of smell isn’t nearly as strong as mine is, so I get final say! šŸ˜€beardoil

I love how this oil conditions his skin and helps calm irritation, even when he isn’t going through one of his beard phases, but when he is growing a beard, it makes the hair so much smoother and less scratchy! I love beards, but I do hate the scratchy hairs, especially during the first few days of growth. This really helps a ton!

15 Day Weight Loss Cleanse and Flush–Product Review

It’s time to talk about poo. Everyone does it, but really isn’t something we’re comfortable talking about, even though there are countless products on the market to ‘help’ the process along. We have probiotic yogurts and smoothies, pills, powders, and a ton of other stuff. Today though, I want to talk specifically about cleansing. Again, there are a lot of different products that can be used. I’ve tried juice cleanses and green powders(which I love), but sometimes they simply aren’t enough, and you need a product that’s geared specifically towards your digestive system. Ā The 15-day cleanse from Diamond Elite is just that!

I have to admit that I was nervous to try a ‘cleanse’ pill. The last thing I want is to have to leave in the middle of a lecture in class because my bowels feel like they’re going to blow. So for the first few days I just took one pill instead of two, and had no strange side effects. I definitely wasn’t blocked up at all, but it wasn’t accompanied by any cramping or uncomfortable feelings, so I tried the suggested dose of two a day, and honestly…I felt great. I did accompany my cleanse with healthier eating, because I noticed that the more fatty foods that I ate while taking the cleanse pills, the more quickly the unnecessary fats seemed to pass through my body.

I didn’t miss any class or lectures, didn’t mess up any pants, and lost a few pounds through the process, but I feel a lot better, my daily ‘functions’ are more regular, and I seem to have a bit more energy, thanks both to the cleanse, and forcing myself to eat more healthily.

Packaging Design-Dippin’ Dots-I want to know what you think!

Hey y’all!

I’ve been working on a packaging design for individual servings of dippin’ dots. Please let me know what you think!! šŸ˜€

Screen Shot 2015-09-18 at 2.17.06 AMMy main target market is women, ages 20-40, with a secondary market of men and children of all ages, because let’s face it, everyone loves dippin’ dots! I was tasked with creating a product line with 6 different ‘flavors’ or versions, and was very excited when my classmates chose dippin’ dots for me to take on! Please, feel free to let me know what you think. I’m going for a fun, yet high-class package, as these will likely retail for about $4 for a large serving of dots. Comments, please!

I am NOT “just a nurse!”

The Beauty Deputy

Yes, I am a nurse, but I am not ā€œjust a nurse.ā€ Nursing is one of the largest occupations out there. I went into nursing right away out of high school. I actually took my CNA course while in high school (Certified Nursing Assistant). First I was a nurses aide, then I became a LPN, and now I am an RN. I have worked at 2 nursing homes, a hospital, aĀ homecare and hospice agency, and now a clinic. I have worked rotating shifts, holidays, days, nights, evenings, 8 hours shifts, 12 hour shifts, and I have worked for 16 hours too when pulling a double. Iā€™ve been on call all hours of the night.

The topicĀ of nursing isĀ something I have never really talked about much on my blog before, but I feel like I need to standĀ up for this amazing occupation after the Miss America pageant.

What am I talkingā€¦
