May Classes: Natural Lotions

Easily customizable, comes together quickly (probably in less than an hour if you know what you’re doing), goes on non-greasy and absorbs quickly, this lotion is straight tops! I have the driest skin. It’s like the whole of the Gobi desert and if I don’t moisturize regularly (which I’m bad about and don’t) you can most assuredly tell. Sooo ashy!! When I do remember to moisturize, I use all sorts of lotions. I enjoy the amazing smelling ones from Bath and Body Works (my favorite is the twisted peppermint) but St. Ives is probably my favorite.

Yesterday I spaced on wearing red but then I realized that the leggings I chose had red in the pattern. So it worked out perfect! However, looking through my closet today I must admit I own very, very little red. I’ve got a couple skirts, but it’s getting cold and they aren’t warm enough, a few shirts and only a few pairs of socks. Not too many things to choose from. So I chose a red shirt, some red jewelry, and a red hair-tie. I don’t necessarily know that this helped me feel more grounded but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I like red, why don’t I own more? Strange…
