ONE LOVE ORGANICS

I've struggled with my face and hair significantly since I had Asher... and with being a female that hasn't been a good thing. My face seems to never have a happy medium. It's either super dry and irritated or oily and broke out. I feel like I've tried just about everything there is out there, including at home remedies and expensive products from beauty retailers, and nothing seems to help! As for my hair I seem to have the same issue.. The ends are dry, even with getting regular trims, and I can barely go a day and a half without needing to wash it again. 

I happen to come across ONE LOVE ORGANICS when another skin care company, Zoe Organics, which whom I love so very much, posted about them. I loved that they were organic and used natural ingredients in their products. I ended up trying their Active Moisture Vitamin B Cleansing Oil and Makeup Remover and their Dry Shampoo

The Cleansing Oil is pretty much a two in one. It's an all natural facial cleanser and makeup remover which is perfect for a busy mama like myself. It also came with this awesome little heart shaped soft sponge that exfoliates your skin without leaving it irritated. I was a little hesitant at first to use this cleaner basically because since it is an oil, I was worried it would leave me even more oily, but this cleanser is amazing. It's smooth and leaves my face feeling moisturized and soft... Seriously just what I needed! I start off by removing my makeup with it, then cleanse the rest of my face, then wash off and pat dry. Some nights I don't even feel like I need to apply a night moisturizer because this cleanser conditions my face so well. I now use this cleanser two times a day. It is hands down my new "go to"! 

As for the dry shampoo it delivered excellence as well. I used it about a day after a wash when I started to notice that my roots were getting oily. I applied just a small amount to the top of my head and combed through. The oily film almost instantly went away and my hair looked fresh! Like I had just had an amazing blow dry! The application process is easy as well. I just poured a small amount into my palm, placed it on my roots, and combed through. This dry shampoo is defiantly a must have. Like the cleanser, it is also made from all natural products so it's safe and light on your locks. In just the few weeks I have been using it, I've been able to go 2-3 days without having to wash my hair and my hair is less dry and definitely looks healthier! 

Overall Im so impressed with these products! I love everything about them and they are now a part of my everyday beauty routine. I'm so happy I've finally found a solution to my every changing face and hair. And I'm happy that I've made an all natural change with what I am using. One Love Organics carries an array of fabulous products so if you are looking for something specific I highly recommend checking them out!

DIY DISTRESSED JEANS

I'm sure you all have seen the distressed grunge skinny jean trend that is going to be huge this Fall and let me say I'm am super obsessed with it. I've found a few pairs online that I totally wanted, but just couldn't justify paying the price for a pair of jeans with holes in them. I decided to take matters into my own hands and today I'm sharing a super fun and simple way to get distressed jeans for a FRACTION of the cost! 
You will need a pair of jeans, chalk (for marking your holes), and scissors. 
You will want to start by slipping your jeans on and marking where you want your holes. I wanted mine sightly above the knee so that is where I drew my chalk lines. If you are having a hard time drawing your lines using a mirror makes the processes a little easier!
Next you will want to cut your holes. I cut mine about 2 - 2 1/2in across on both knees. Be careful not to cut through the back of your jeans!
Now you will want to take the tips of your scissors or a needle and carefully pull a few loose threads where your holes are. This will give them a more distressed look. Dust off your chalk lines or simply throw your jeans in the wash to remove them. 
Now you have a pair distressed jeans that will be a staple piece in your Fall wardrobe! 

Remember if you create on of my DIY projects I would love to see them! Feel free to use the hashtag #everythingemily when sharing on social media! 

Happy Hump Day loves!
