Update | Bang Day!

So I've changed my hair.
Every two years I get bangs and usually I love the look. This year I haven't really been feeling them. Which totally sucks because I've had the itch for a while now.

Back in 2011, I had bangs and they grew out. One night at approximately 3:00am I decided to grab a pair of scissor and butcher my hair.

I'm not really feeling them. Every time I wear them down I feel a little suffocated.

 I think we all know that I'm pretty lazy with my hair. I thought that getting bangs would force me to  do my hair. Technically, I do "do" my hair but not my whole head.

I usually only straighten the bangs and sides.

What do I do with the rest of it? I put it into a messy bun and call it a day. Honestly, it looks a little better than what I had been doing which was nothing.

Every now and again I will straighten the rest of my hair. Usually it takes a whole 15 mins. Seriously 15min...  For some reason I can't seem to make the time.

When I didn't have bangs I loved wearing my hair straight but now I think it's just too much for my face. I feel like cousin IT. Bangs are a heavy look to wear....you can wear them edgy or girly. Frankly, I'm finding it hard to find a style. I know, you don't have to say it. I'm weird.

Sometimes I love them... some days I pin them back.... Ah... And other days I wonder what possessed me to do this to myself.

What do you think? Do you like or hate them?

Skincare | Keeping it simple

So, what’s up with my skincare routine now that I’m done Accutane? Well it’s changed quite a bit over the last 6 months. I have gotten lazier than I ever could have imaged!!

I remember a while back I made an evil comment about Vichy Dermablend products being over hyped water. Since my skin has been on the mends and requires very little effort I started using the Deep Cleansing Gel. What does it do for my face… well let me tell you… very close to nothing! Which is perfect for me right now. Once I’m done my current bottle I am planning on upgrading to something more luxurious. I use it morning and night to remove my makeup or if I'm feeling gross.

I still use cleansing water from time to time but because I'm no longer using a lot of makeup/heavy makeup. I don't feel I need it.

My moisturizer, night cream, eye cream... and spf is currently the original Nivea Creme. FYI, there is no SPF in it. I'm a very bad girl.

I think the total cost of my skin is well below $100. Before Accutane I would guess it cost around $300.

Well... I've shared. What are you using to wash your face?
Any recommendations?
