My poor skin has been having a moment for a few weeks now. It started with trying a different brand of tea tree oil, of all things, that my skin did not agree with. I broke out on my T-zone – forehead, nose, and chin. My skin type has always been sensitive and dry but since I broke out, I have been an oily mess. I’m not sure if it’s from the tea tree, the change in weather, my body adjusting to coming off hormonal birth control, or all of the above. Either way, I clearly needed to reevaluate my current products.
I always put a lot of thought into gift giving. I love sitting back and taking the time to really think about each individual person in my life – what are they like? What’s going on in their life right now? What do they need, or what’s something they’ve really been wanting? I like to make it personal too. What is something only I would think to get them? What defines our relationship? This year, I’m less interested in materialistic gifts that “so-and-so” might not even use.
