Media Overload?

Fact: We all love blogging!  We all love posting our new discoveries, photos, and anxiously await the latest and greatest from our favorite bloggers.   However, sometimes I know I feel drained from spending countless hours on the computer and I feel a little lost and out of touch with daily reality.  Therefore, I have compiled a 10 item list of fun little outlets away from our favorite outlet!  Enjoy!  And if you decide to try any or come up with your own, blog about it after your mini vaca away and tell us how you've enjoyed your precious time!

1. Explore your town - or a new one!  Hop in your car or on your bike and travel around, you never know what you will discover!

2. Be a photographer - find art around your neighborhood, flowers and trees are in bloom.

3. Have friends over for game night and canapes!  (No phones (other than emergencies), TV, or computers!)

4. Master your favorite dish!  Take up cooking several times a week.

5. Make your own jewelry - outdoors!  That's right, embrace the beauty of nature!

6. Try belly dancing, pilates, pole dancing, or surfing!

7. Plant some flowers.

8. Rearrange your room, maybe even paint one wall a celery green, icy blue or hot pink!

9. Have a gourmet picnic in a pretty park with your family and friends.  Get inspired with delish dishes from Ninasculinarycreations.blogspot.com

10. Transform your bathroom into your very own spa!  Spritz bath towels with lavender and peppermint essential oils, bubble bath, deep condition hair, cleanse and exfoliate skin, apply a mask, moisturize from head to toe and finish with a mani & pedi!  Sweet dreams!

Eminence Herbal Eye Makeup Remover

Two years ago, I have casted finding the perfect eye makeup remover off my list.  Following in my creature of habit ways, I have maintained my perfect makeup remover at the top of my list.  

This ultra-soothing formula removes any trace of makeup my cleanser may leave behind, namely creamy eyeliners and mascara.  Since I use a glycolic facial cleanser, I don't focus too heavily on the eye area, as it irritates my sensitive skin.  

Doubles as an eye compress for tired, puffy and sore, allergy-ravaged peepers!  Light, chamomile scent is calming and there is ZERO oil, as in nothing to shake well before using. Convenient pump and snap top.

Show Offs

I love the Showoffs from BeneFit!  Here we have from the inner corner: Candi, Jacki, Bambi and Lola!  I bought these about 5 years ago and they are still going strong and show no sign of running out anytime soon!  Very good purchases indeed, at $16, at the time.   Since then, they've shrunk the selection, and the price down to $12.
