Hello friends!!!

I have always used makeup remover wipes or washed my face over and over again to remove all my makeup. But for most of the time it left my skin super sensitive and extremely dry!!

So when I found this on
and you can also find it on their website I got right on it!!

Now just a little statement, I am not no expert on any of this, I just tried it out and works perfectly on me! Make sure you try it out and see if it works for you :) I also added more coconut oil, less water on mine and my own oil fragrance just because it works better on my dry skin :)

Here are the simple ingredients:

1: Cotton pads
2: Water (add according to how much you want and how big your container is)
3: Glass container: target :) their 3 dollar section! 
4: Baby Body wash (any) I used
5: Oil (optional)
6: Coconut Oil: I used Trader Joe's

I tried using some natural organic products since my skin is sensitive.
I added 2 TBSP of coconut oil, 1 TBSP of baby wash, 1/2 cup of water.
Mixed it well. Added a little lavender oil and mixed it again.
Once mixed up I put the cotton pads in glass container. Filled up with makeup remover.
Added more cotton pads and repeat until the cotton pads soaked up the remover.

So let me try to be short with this post. Because even though it took me 30 minutes to cry this feeling I have had for quiet a bit, it came down to one thing. Obviously a couple of things but one thing keeps popping up in my mind.

Tonight I could not sleep, thinking about how I am not good enough for anything. Not good enough as a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend and even with my own blog and business. Just not quite seeing the results I want and picture in my mind. Obviously this isn't true, the truth is we all have our own journey, and we all learn as we go. The truth is that nothing will ever be perfect.

As I was sitting here on the couch, just talking to God. And I mean talking, like with anger, and sadness and honesty. Straight up honesty with how I feel inside. How I feel as though all the doors are closed, no door open, not even a peek. I proceeded to say my thanks, what I feel "feel" like I need and ended the conversation.

Knowledge is what came into mind as soon as I was done. Simple. Learn. Learn things to have the knowledge I need in life to do the things I know and do not know. To learn as I go. Knowledge only comes when you look for it and learn as you go. Simple as that. That is exactly what I needed to know this night. Nothing more, nothing less.

And even though I don't want to go into details, I know exactly what I need to do, because if the door isn't opening for me, I look another way, surely I will find one. If it isn't here now, I will find one and open one myself.

Knowledge my friends is what I need.

Pregnancy Style

Pregnancy style can be fun and comfortable! Me and one of my best friends decided to do a fun post :)

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing and she rocked these styles. Here are just a couple of photos and I will post some more in a couple of days!!

The stripe top just goes with everything and it is the most comfortable thing on this earth!! And the dress is a vintage dress I found a long with the BCBG clogs :)

I decided to do a pregnancy style post to show that anyone can be comfortable and rock anything in any stage of their lives! XO-Monica and model Denise :)
