Weekly Recap

I won't lie, y'all... this was an incredibly long week for me. I had orientation for my internship (helping to train new students) Monday-Wednesday, class started on Thursday, and I had work most nights. It was tiring!! I'm completely worn out and can't wait to sleep in tomorrow.

Plus, I started a new moisturizer thinking that it would help my skin be less dry, but so far I've just started to break out again! Does anybody have any advice for this?! Please let me know!! I love when my skin is hydrated and soft and protected with SPF, but hate that my forehead always starts to break out no matter what I do! :(


Anyway, onto the things I found really interesting this week:

Olympic Sports + Emojis // This is a fun little quiz by Buzzfeed. I only got a few right, which is super embarrassing because I've done nothing but watch/keep up with the Olympics these past few days!

True Olympic Spirit // If you haven't heard this story yet, now is the time! After being tripped up on the track, runners who have never met encourage each other to keep going and finish the race. It's so sweet and truly embody the Olympic spirit! This is a really interesting contrast to all of the anti-doping sentiments from last week.

UofSC Millennial Terms // Guys I had to share this video that my University made!! It is so funny, especially the scenes with our President (truly one of the greatest people I know!). It's probably a lot funnier if you know some of the professors, but still, a lighthearted watch for anyone!

How was your week? Any fun things on your radar?

  1. Sounds like a busy week!! I have seen that when I try new products my skin breaks out the first week because it is adjusting. If it continues to not get better I would stop using the product it may not be a bad product but just not for your skin type. I started using this night cream that makes my skin feel absolutely amazing - of course I can't think of the name right now but I got it free with a purchase from ulta and love it!

  2. I think an advice would be to try peppermint mask for its supposed to help calm the breakouts. Try using products like Aloe Vera which are more natural instead for chemicals does cause breakouts. Health, the time of the month and stress are also a few factors, so I guess finding the root of the problem before proceeding would be the best.

  8. Have you tried argan oil as a moisturizer? I had the same problem with moisturizers breaking me out or just not working on my super dry skin before using it and now I use it for everything from my hair, to my skin, even my cuticles. xx Merisa | Monogrammed Magnolias

  14. For the facial products- you might be allergic to the main ingredient that makes up SPF in makeup! Titanium Dioxide. It's in just about all makeup (with SPF or not) but makeup with sunscreen has much higher percentages of it. I'm VERY sensitive to it, and it makes me break out like crazy. Just something to be aware of when looking for your new makeup or moisturizer!!

    Also good luck with the new internship!
