Aquation Skincare Review

Aquation Skincare Review

With so many facial cleansers on the market these days, finding one without any smells, exfoliating scrubs, or harsh ingredients can be pretty hard. Aquation offers a pretty good solution to finding an everyday gentle, moisturizing cleanser. Not only can you use it on your face, but also your body.  It's fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, paraben free and petrolatum free. I love it because on days when I don't wear makeup or just want to do a light cleanse before doing a face mask, it works perfect. Aquation also has a line of lotion and moisturizing creams that hydrate your skin for 24 hours so you can wear those spring dresses with confidence. If you're looking to try Aquation for yourself you can find it online or at your local Walmart or CVS. (Click here for a list of more locations.)

15 Backpacks That Won't Make You Look Like a School Girl

15 Backpacks That Will Make You Wish You Were Still In School


I very rarely wear backpacks, but some of the recent styles I've been noticing for Spring have got me thinking again. For the most part, I tend to wear backpacks when on a vacation that usually involves seeing a very famous mouse. Come to think of it, I didn't even wear them during my school days. Nope I'd rather carry my books, than walk around with some dumpy backpack. After elementary school, they didn't quite have the same sparkle and excitement as before, so I just opted-out, but now the scene seems to be changing. Our favorite designers and brands are reinventing the backpack to include fun and playful graphics to exotic materials and prints.

My #UOBeauty Wishlist



Since I work in the mall, it's kind of hard not to wander in every store and look around from time to time. So one day I decided to visit Urban Outfitters, which I've haven't been in for in while. I remember when I was in college, I used to visit the one on Walnut Street in Philadelphia all the time, there sales were amazing and I always loved to see their creative visual displays. On my most recent visit, I was very impressed by their beauty section. I found brands like Sigma Beauty, Stila, and Mario Badescu and tons of beauty masks.

The Flower Show: Holland


I've always loved visiting The Flower Show because it means fresh beginnings and the coming of spring. This year's theme was Holland so I knew to expect tulips, but I had no idea I would also find so many unique and somewhat strange looking flowers. I also was able to find a new favorite called the Ranunculus! It's looks like a rose, but with way more petals! I like it so much I took a picture of it in every color. This year, I even came home with a plant baby of my own. A tiny little succulent plant. I know they're easy to take care of, so it's the perfect starter plant. I'm already looking forward to next year's theme Wonders of Water! Who's ready to welcome Spring?!?
