DIY Green Clay Face Mask

One of the main reasons I started pursuing a more natural and chemical-free lifestyle about 2 years ago was to try to clear my problem skin up once and for all. During this time I have had more success than I have every had in my life. That is HUGE news for me!

Something I think that has been really helpful in this is regularly using a green clay mask at least once a week or whenever I feel a breakout coming on, or to calm one down that has already started. It is really great and super easy to do yourself at home.  Clay masks are helpful in drawing out any impurities deep within your pores. That is especially useful when I can feel like I am going to break out, and want it to cycle through asap and get back to being clear! There are tons of recipes out there on Pinterest for ways to mix up a green clay mask but I really don’t think there is any wrong way. I usually just mix together anything I want until I get the right smoothness I am looking for. The biggest rule though, is you need to mix clay masks with non-metal utensils. If not, you will disrupt the magnetic charge it contains which is what pulls all the gunk out of your pores!

100% Pure Haul and Review

This post contains affiliate links. For more information, see my full disclosures here.

I first heard about this cool new company called 100% Pure probably a year or two ago but I took my time jumping on the bandwagon. As their name suggests, they are a completely natural and pure makeup company. All their colors are created using fruit pigments, which is super cool and they are also cruelty-free!

I love everything they stand for and the all natural ingredients got me really excited but…I don’t know, I think I wanted to see more people review it before I knew if they would actually work you know? My BFF Rachel had tried a few of their products and totally loved them so I think that is what finally convinced me to dive in! I have ordered from them about 2 or 3 times now, so this is a compilation of all the products I have tried so far.

My Favorite Online Home Decor Stores

Hi, my name is Bekah and I am an online shopping addict. Seriously! I subscribe to a ton of home decor websites and a bunch of different blogs too. The convenience of shopping online in your PJ’s or comfy pants is way more fun to me than walking through stores with tons of other people!

While I browse around a lot of stores before I make any decisions on what to buy, I always find myself coming back to a few key websites. I mostly look at the selection they offer, but the layout and usability of the website play a big role too. Here are the sites I really like, and find the coolest stuff at:
