Take That Compliment Somewhere Else

Today I experienced something I thought I would share with everyone because it is not something I have seen anyone talk about. So, story time!

I was sitting outside a pizza place, eating a pizza as usual. A woman sits next to me, clearly on her lunch break, and she is on the phone telling someone that she has to miss her hair appointment again because no one can pick up her kids. She’s all frazzled and drops her bag. I lean in to help pick up her bag but she beats me to it. She apologizes a million times to who I’m assuming is her hairdresser and hangs up. She then takes her slice of pizza and is clearly in a time crunch to eat (based on the fact that she basically wasn’t chewing her food). As usual, a bunch of random men decide to tell me how beautiful I am. Sometimes I say thank you. Sometimes I ignore them based on how pervy they act. After the 5th guy decides to tell me I’m beautiful I think to my maybe vain self, “Do these guys think I’m blind? Do I really need to know right now that I’m beautiful? The woman who needs these compliments more is probably the woman sitting right next to me.” At this point the woman has devoured the whole pizza and is now wiping the crumbs off her black skirt. I look at her and say “I noticed you have really white teeth, your smile can seriously light up the room! Girl, who’s your dentist?” She laughs and tells me she has OCD when it comes to her teeth and I tell her, “Well it’s been paying off. If I had your teeth I would smile 24/7!” She thanks me and then goes “You know what, I know it seems like a small gesture but I haven’t even had time to wash my hair in 4 days let alone put on some makeup and look presentable for once. Between the new business and my kids I haven’t had time for myself. The business is booming but it has taken over my life. And for those few seconds you made me smile and I really appreciate that. Thank you so much and I hope you have a good holiday.”

I wanted to share this encounter with you all because I think it’s something to think about the next time you’re out and about. Because trust me, I don’t need to know that I’m pretty. But you know what people never compliment me on? The fact that I have a brain. I would like people to stop assuming I’m some bimbo and realize that outside of my bubbly personality, I’m actually an educated woman. And you know what? There’s a lot of women like the one I’ve encountered who probably don’t need to hear about her business for the millionth time and actually WANT to be called beautiful.

I’m fully aware that the world isn’t so simple and if you want to keep complimenting pretty girls, go for it. That’s not a bad thing.

Honestly, I think I’m writing this because I’m really freaking annoyed that I can’t eat my pizza in that nice sunny spot in peace and yet there was a woman next to me who clearly needed a compliment but wasn’t getting any. And then you guys wonder why some women feel the need to get plastic surgery, to contour, to get their lips filled, to have fake this, fake that. Well then stop complimenting all the big chested instagram girls and and start complimenting all the naturally beautiful women on this planet.

My Night Time Skin Care Routine

Hey ya’ll! As a lot of you know, I have dealt with acne for a very long time. I thought that the more oily my skin was, the more I was going to break out. So I did everything I can to strip off all the oil on my face. A trip to the humid Philippines proved me wrong. The humidity in the Philippines caused my face to be FLAWLESS! Which made me realize i needed a lot more moisture in my face. I’ve completely changed up my night time skin care routine and I am currently writing this with only ONE pimple on my face, which says a lot for someone like me!



  1. Cleanse


After removing my makeup with my Makeup Eraser, I use the Origins A Perfect World cleanser. If you have dry or acne prone skin, this is a great gentle cleanser. I have combination skin and in the summer I get extra oily. During that time I will use Origins Checks and Balances instead- that one is perfect for combination skin!

2. Tone


I like to use toners that are alcohol free because my skin is sensitive. This is a really good, affordable toner if you have sensitive skin.

3. Face Oil


The next thing that I do is apply an oil all over my face. This has made my foundations apply a lot more smoothly and less cakey. The skin around my mouth is very dry and my foundation tends to cling in that area. I apply extra product in that area to make sure it is moisturized properly. It had also lessened my breakouts by A LOT- I MEAN IT. The one that I’m currently using is Josie Maran 100% Pure Argon Oil Light. I use about 5 drops.

4. Night Cream


This is the best night cream I have used so far! It is the Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins renewal cream. It is $43 but for a good quality night cream, that is not bad at all. Most night creams that actually work cost anywhere from $65-$200. So this is a steal people! I wake up with skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom 🙂

5. Eye Cream


Oops, another Origins product! But yes, I use Origins under my eyes too. I am currently using the GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream. I love how much more awake I look in the morning and the dark circles under my eyes and basically non existent right now. Gotta love a product that actually does what it’s supposed to!

6. Spot Treatment


Last but not least, I use the Kate Somerville Eradikate Acne Treatment wherever I have a break out. This is amazing if you have sensitive skin! It hasn’t bothered m skin so far. Also if you are tired of acne treatments drying out your skin, this is a great alternative. The one downside is you do have to go to sleep with pink dots on your face, which isn’t the most attractive! But hey, it’s a small price to pay for beautiful skin!

7. Lips


For my lips, I’m currently using good old fashioned Carmex. I prefer the click stick because it’s less messy to me. You can never go wrong with Carmex to help dry, chapped lips!


8. Humidifier


When the air is really dry, I like to use my Homedics Humidifier. Dry air can cause MAJOR breakouts and dry patches on your skin. A humidifier is a great way to add moisture in your room so you can have great skin all year round.

There you have it! This is what I do almost every night and my skin is 90% better than it was 2 years ago. If you have any questions, let me know!
