Tips for Dry Skin

As you guys know I have dry skin and I think these tips are super helpful especially with winter around the corner!

Beautyholics101

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10…

molly kauper

Hey y’all! Black Friday is coming up soon, and though I usually don’t leave my house for this event, I love to online shop and take advantage of all the sweet deals.

Getting A Job At Uni: My Top Tips!

Working while at university is harder then it seems so here are a few very helpful tips to help you find a job!

Abi Louise Allen

A longer post today focusing on what so many students worry about…

I think we all know university can be a huge financial struggle for a lot of people, some people only get a small loan that doesn’t cover their rent, some get no loan and others are not in a position to borrow money when needed. So, for many people getting a job is a necessity while studying.

For me, my loan unfortunately only covers half my annual rent total and all the money I saved working over summer just wouldn’t be enough to cover 6 months rent, food money, social money and transport and therefore, I had to find a job.

Whilst most universities are based in cities, and you’d think finding a job because of this would be easy, for students this just isn’t the case, for many businesses aren’t willing to…

The TRUTH about animal derived ingredients!

Just wanted to share this with you guys because it’s important to know what you’re putting into your body.

Last week I did a poll on Instagram asking if you would rather see a video on cruelty-free dupes OR animal derived ingredients, and about 90% of you chose ingredients, so here we are! When I first started looking into cruelty-free beauty and animal testing, I wasn’t looking into ingredients, but it wasn’t long until the nasty truth came out. What are these ingredients that we are putting all over our faces? I found the top 10 most popular animal derived ingredients, and I am definitely going to be more conscious of what ingredients are in my makeup and skin care!

COCHINEAL DYE (also known as CARMINE) – this is literally crushed up beetles. These beetles feed on cactus plants in Central and South America, and the females eat red cactus berries, and when these beetles are crushed a bright red dye is produced. If your makeup is red…

Jack Kerouac Quote!

Love Jack Kerouac and this quote so much I had to share it with you guys!!

Opher's World

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”

My Crazy Flight

So I’m back in Canada- we arrived yesterday and oh boy do I have a crazy story for you!

It was super rainy in Nairobi so our flight got delayed and consequently we missed our flight to Toronto and I was stuck in Ethiopia for 2 days which was a true blessing in disguise because I had the most amazing time ever! The food was amazing and the country is so beautiful. There is so much greenery everywhere I was blown away. I’m super busy at the moment getting everything ready for school and stuff but I will absolutely be posting lots of pictures of it as soon as I get some time as well as some more details of all the places we visited. Just wanted to post a little update before that.

A No From The Universe

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a while it’s because the universe hates me. My laptop’s screen broke again and I had to get it replaced. Luckily I’ve got it back now and it’s fine.

Anyway, just wanted to give you a little update on what’s going on with me. On Thursday, we decided to go to this place called Village Market and it ended up being super fun! It has a really artsy vibe and it’s just such a fun place although it’s really big so it takes forever to get from one end to the other!

We ended up going to one of my favourite bookstores in Kenya called Between The Lines which is just so pretty!

5 Things To Always Have In Your Carry-On

I’ve been travelling a lot lately and I’ve noticed that there are some things that you just absolutely need to carry with you- and no I learned the hard way that these do not include all 7 Harry Potter books…

1. Hand sanitizer and tissues- Let’s be honest, travelling isn’t the most hygienic thing ever and it’s a really good idea to have some sanitizer and tissues with you because you never know when you’ll need them. Plus, it’s always a good idea to sanitize your hands before eating something even if you are using cutlery.

2. An extra pair of clothes- In case, and this is the worst case scenario, you end up losing your luggage or exchanging it by mistake or it comes later on it’s good to have a fresh pair of clothes with you because you will want to freshen up after your journey.

3. Your cellphone– Our lives revolve around technology these days and your cellphone is probably the most important one of all. It has all your information, contacts etc and you do not want to end up losing it so always keep it with you. Plus, you never know when you might need it!

4. Headphones- This is just in case you end up sitting next to someone a little too friendly. Also listening to music is a good distraction if you get travel anxiety.

5. Makeup- You are at some point going to need a touch up so remember to carry some makeup products with you. Not all your makeup of course but just the 5/6 items you are likely to use that day. If you don’t wear makeup carry some moisturizer because your skin can really dry out during a long journey!
