Tea Tree Oil
So, around the start of the new
My newest holy grail item is Tea Tree Oil.
All the social media dermatologists (lol) that I follow recommend using tea tree oil for acne, so when I finally found a 100% organic and affordable option, I immediately bought it.
And thank god I did!!
I’ve been using it for about three weeks now and I’ve seen a major improvement in the hormonal acne along my jaw and chin area. In three weeks, it went from a decent amount of acne in that area to now only one or two bumps and discoloration from the acne scars (which I will tackle later, I’m just glad the actual acne is leaving)!
I first used it as a spot treatment after using a witch-hazel toner, but now I just add a few drops to my toner. I just add three to four drops to my toner-soaked cotton pad and apply all over my face.
Fair warning: It does sting/tingle for about a minute
Disclaimer: I’m not a dermatologist. This is just my personal opinion and experience with tea tree oil.
Get Your Shit Together by Sarah Knight
I treat Sarah Knight books like they’re my bibles.
I’ve previously talked about how You Do You, another Sarah Knight book, changed my life, so of
Get Your Shit Together is all about “how to stop worrying about what you should do so you can finish what you need to do and start doing what you want to do.”
At this time in my v busy
Sarah guides you through the “small shit, the tough shit, and the DEEP shit” so that you can take control of your life and get your shit together (whatever that looks like to you).
100/10 I will always recommend Sarah Knight to anyone who’s looking to ~personally develop~.
This is a
I’ve told y’all about how my vagina is super sensitive and how I’ve had trouble finding a condom that doesn’t fuck up my pH balance and that doesn’t result in a yeast infection…
Well, I’ve finally found one. I would personally like to thank Jesus, Sarah Knight, and the women’s clinic where I got my IUD.
I actually came across the LOVE condoms when I finally opened the “goody bag” I got from the women’s clinic after getting my IUD inserted. It’s been like four months, but I finally opened it and saw it was a pamphlet and a bunch of these red condoms. So, I was like, ok cool, it’s only been four months so let me try these cute
I knew pretty much immediately that they were my new
They don’t break ✔️
They don’t feel like sandpaper ✔️
They don’t fuck up my sensitive vagina ✔️
They have an amazing mission ✔️

Grocery Store Iced Coffee
This month, I made the executive decision to stop spending $6 a day at Starbucks.
I am absolutely gutted about it, but for the sake of my bank account, I knew I needed to reevaluate the relationship between my debit card and the coffeehouse.
What I was NOT about to do is go without my morning (and sometimes midday) iced coffee. So, I went to my local grocery store, went to their fridge aisle, and bought the best-looking iced coffee they had.
Every morning, I now pour my OWN cup of iced coffee and head out the door.
At first, I hated it (#petty), but now it is once again the highlight of my day (sad or nah??).
The grocery store carton of iced coffee is $4. I have to re-up once a week, meaning I now spend around $16 on iced coffee a month, compared to the $132 I used to spend going to Starbucks five times a week.
Look at your own coffee receipts and do with this information what you will 🤷🏽♀️.

Runner Up: Re-useable Straws
This month has a runner-up
It’s a stainless-steel straw that I use instead of getting a plastic or paper straw that just has to be thrown away or recycled later on.
I’m all about saving the planet and you should be too! It’s literally one of the smallest and EASIEST things you can do to be a
Plus, I swear to god that my drinks taste better coming out of this straw. Don’t ask me
