When life gives you an avocado, use it in a face mask. 🥑

This week has been pretty slow in the modeling world, leaving me time to experiment with food, and new face masks! Each night I experimented using a different mask I’ve read about on the internet to see if it lived up to its expectations.

Mask 1: Avocado 🥑

What’s not to love about an avocado mask?! Avocado is well know and very popular to eat, healing skin from the inside. Avocado is rich in vitamins and fatty acids so it’s important for the body. Avocado has a cooling effect on your skin and you don’t need much so you get to eat the left overs 🙂 What’s better than that?!

Mask 2: Honey 🍯

Honey is something that is also important, great for your body and great for your skin. So why not use it in a mask? Although it is sticky and a little runny, it sure does taste good! Honey has plenty antioxidants important for skin and anti aging. Who wouldn’t love to look younger for longer! Definitely recommend!

Mask 3: Turmeric 🍊

I’ve used turmeric masks before, but this is the first time I’ve made my own and into a paste. Other than leaving your skin a little yellow after you wash it off, it’s not that bad. Turmeric is good for acne scars or dark marks. I’m someone who gets a mark here or there and if this helps, I’m going to use it by all means!

Mask 4: Black Mask

This black pore mask is one of the most popular masks out there right now, so I decided to try it for myself. It’s cool on the skin and dries within a few minutes. I am someone who suffers from blackheads, so this mask is something I wanted to give a shot. As far as peeling this off, it hurts a little bit and sticks to any baby hairs or peach fuzz you have. The most important thing is blackheads… do I think this actually works for pulling out blackheads, I would have to say no because I really didn’t see much of a difference.

Skin is something you should take care of, just like your teeth, nails and hair. Your skin acts a barrier to outside threats, oftentimes fighting them off but sometimes they get through. That leads to things like blackheads, pimples or even acne. I can’t stress how important it is to wash your face every day. These masks are something that help with protection, but do not clean the skin. These are not meant to be used everyday, unless you prefer to. You don’t need to use all of them, everyone’s skin reacts different so one may work better over another.

I would love for you guys to try them out and email me telling your experience, email is in the contact page! I’m curious to know what you think, or if you have a mask you’d like me to try!! 

Enjoy!

This New York weather has me crazy!

Guysss!

Who else is annoyed with the weather in New York, I can’t be the only one?!? I mean the winter last year in NYC was so mild, I didn’t wear a coat half the time (thanks global warming). This year, its, warm, cold, rainy, cloudy… all within the same week – insert eye roll here.

To me it gets a little confusing when I’m going through my closet trying to pick my outfit for the day. When I think of dressing for the fall/winter I think layers, which usually consists of denim, a turtleneck or a chunky sweater and top it off with a great jacket (denim and leather are my favorite). Because of the bipolar weather, I find myself buying a crappy shirt from the I LOVE NY stand on the corner of Canal and Bowery because it’s not cold enough for the 10 layers I thought I needed.

This outfit is simply layered, and it kept me warm. Throwing a jacket on top is an easy way to layer, and an easy piece to take off (obviously). This “in-between” outfit is perfect for this type of weather.

Hello? How do you work this thing?

Sooooooo… I started a blog!

As my school semester is coming to a close, I figured part of my final project for my writing class would be this thing (secretly, I’m hoping for more Instagram followers!) I guess we’ll see how this whole writing shindig goes! I told myself why not try it out everyone is doing it, right? Plus, I paid a year upfront, soo I’m stuck with it until then lol. You guys gotta bear with me until I figure out how to use WP, which could take a while. Oh and the picture of me looking out the window, kinda represents how I feel right now, locked in my house because its freeezinggg! But hey, I’m making kale and broccoli chips so I’m content 🙂 Stay tuned for the recipe.

XO,
