My Acne struggles and my secret weapon!

Many of you might not know, but I recently have been struggling with acne stemming from a hormonal imbalance. I got the worst kind of acne that is underneath your skin, lasts for weeks and hurts! It was horrible because  I had never had acne as a teen, only a few pimples during my period.. So at 22 when this kicked me I didn't know what to do. At first it tried natural remedies like tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar,  I also have a pretty clean diet so I didn't know what  else I could do... It worked for a while , but never really got rid of it all. That's when I knew I had to find something else. I got Aztec Secret Clay a pound of it and it is working miracles on my face. After just a few weeks all my pimples have really gone away and my skin is feeling great. I use this with ACV and it is seriously a miracle cream. I use it 2-3 times a week and it brings all the nasty stuff in my pores to the surface. I might break out for a day after then my face is clean and clear. 
Do you have any secret acne cures??
Let me know

Preview to a review: Twice Clothing

Hey Guys,

Long time, no blog... Things have been kinda crazy, between work, the New Year, my car breaking down, and my dad getting sick again. 
In my mind, The first time I saw my parents in 2014 was not supposed to be in a hospital room. I wanted to see my parents at their house, maybe at a nice dinner, or even to pay them back for helping me fix my car, but unexpected things happen.  

Despite how it sounds, things are going good. I finally took my dad home last night from the hospital and all seems well with him (as long as he rests.) My car was fixed and work is amazing as usual. I feel so blessed and grateful for my life. 

Now you might not know this about me, but I am addicted to getting FREEBIES. Let me disclaim this by saying that I am no packrat or hoarder, in fact quite the opposite, with almost everything I own fitting into two suitcases (one for clothes and shoes, one for my valuables.)  But needlessly, I love freebies. I like searching for them, whether its yard sale leftovers, cosmetic samples, magazine subscriptions, or even clothes. A couple times a week I search the craigslist free section, looking to see if any good DVDS, or electronics are being given away. I go on Absurdly Cool and look at the samples and for some reason a lot of Calendars that companies are trying to dispense, and I try to find new legit sites that offer cool things. A few days ago on my hunt, I found a great online consignment shop for women’s fashion called Twice. I was referred by a friend and instantly got a $10 dollar credit (if you click my link, you will get a $10 dollar credit yourself!) I thought to myself, This is awesome! The site was so easy to navigate and there was a lot of cute stuff in my size. You could even sell stuff for credit. I saw stuff from Urban, J. Crew, Anthropologie, Madewell and it was all under $20! I ended up getting a really cute button up top, it was under $10 dollars, and I thought to myself, the credit can't possibly go towards shipping too... BUT IT DID. And I got a free shirt that I really liked! Anyways even if it hadn't shipping is only $5 and that's not bad to me! 

I'll post photos of the shirt when I get it, it should be here tomorrow!

Check out Twice !!

Holidays, New Years, and my first Vlog!

Happy New Years everyone! I know I have been absent from blogger for a month now but as usual things got really crazy around the holidays! Firstly I'd like to share that in December I made my first Vlog (which is posted at the end of this!) I would love to get feedback on it from all of you out there. Secondly Happy 2014!!
I am so excited to embark on new adventures this year, especially since I will graduate this spring from my University! I hope everyone has something they are looking forward to this year as much as I am! How was your holiday? Mine was terrific and relaxing, getting to spend quality time with my parents and little brother, while watching hallmark movies every night for a week. 

I don't participate in new year resolutions, as I try to conquer my goals as they come along though out the year, but I do have a couple desires for this year that have been in the forefront of my mind lately!

Do you have any resolutions for 2014?
