Your Face Smells Like Nutmeg and It’s Clean

I’m all about trying natural remedies and scrubs for my skin so I thought I would work on clearing out my pores for the new year. Weird, maybe, but I thought what the heck. I hate blackheads, and googled some natural ways to clear them up.

I came upon Milk and Nutmeg

The instructions said to mix the two until they made a paste  you could put onto your face as a scrub.

It never really made a paste, but I went with it. I put it on and rubbed it on my skin all over for three minutes. It smelled strong, I’m not a huge fan of nutmeg on its own. I washed it all off my face and it felt soft. At a glance it did seem like my pores were clearer.

I followed the treatment with Witch Hazel. Since I opened up my pores with the scrub I wanted to go ahead and use it as a toner.

I also wanted a light moisturizer so I used my Cetaphil all over.

In conclusion, I think the nutmeg/milk combo worked. I wasted a lot of milk. If you do this I suggest just letting a tiny bit coat the bottom of the bowl and not using as much as I did. Otherwise I think this is a nice gentle scrub that can be made from your left over pumpkin pie ingredients and some milk.

Let me know if you try it.

How is Vlogmas Going?

HOW IS VLOGMAS GOING?

10420717_10152545459100439_2092404342_o

Since I decided to do Vlogmas for my channel on Youtube I have been kicking myself that I also didn’t do Blogmas. I plan to stay on top of my blog in 2015 and have purchased a planner to make sure that happens. Had I done Blogmas it would have forced me to post daily. Alas, Vlogmas happened.

It has been a lot of fun and a little difficult to vlog daily. I vlog on my cell phone – the Droid Turbo and it actually does really well making it easy for me to vlog pretty much anywhere.

There are boring days, days where nothing happens, and days when just the most random stuff comes up. Nonetheless, I have been enjoying vlogmas and watching vlogs for all my Youtube friends Vlogmas days. If you are doing it this year, leave your channel in the comments, and I will check it out!!

Happy Vlogmas and December!

Thanks as always for reading!

Plight of the Youtuber

I adore making videos. It is so much fun to talk to the camera and come up with videos. That’s all it is though, it’s a lot of fun. I’m not trying to make money off of it or my blog. I have other ventures out there which I am trying to make money with, but when it comes to Youtube it’s really just for fun.

I have met a lot of people who are simply trying to make money. They worry about views, comments, promo, and sponsorship. I think that sucks all the fun out of it. Would I like 50,000 people to watch me put on makeup and think I’m a genius, yes, but I know that isn’t going to happen.

I have another Youtube channel for my makeup business, and I keep it completely separate, because I am not trying to sell anything on bowsnnails I’m just trying to play with makeup and have a good time. If you like it great! If you wanna comment great! If not, I’ll just keep making videos because it’s fun for me. I have some different ones coming out because I’m not trying to impress anyone. I’m just going to do me, and I hope if you are thinking of starting a channel or have one already that you are in it for fun. I hope you’re just going to do you.

❤ Emily
