How I Clear Up My Eczema | Glowy, Healthy Skin Edition


I hosted a live video chat on my Instagram channel earlier this week sharing how eczema has affected not only me but my children for years. Eczema has been a skin problem that has plagued me and my children and I have been on a diligent search to find a solution that would clear up the irritating breakouts.

I'm not saying I've found a cure, but I've definitely found that the following solutions have reduced our eczema flare ups dramatically.

Use an apple cider vinegar rinse as needed.

I've found that by using an apple cider vinegar rinse on my hair and skin, most of my eczema has dried up as a result. 

I typically mix one part ACV to one part water in a bottle. My eczema is concentrated to my scalp, so after co-washing, I'll pour some over my scalp and rinse with cool water. To treat my scalp in between washes, I use a spray bottle to spritz affected areas. I have not had to do this in almost a year. Before implementing the strategies I'm sharing today I had to apply the ACV rinse almost weekly.

I am all in on the graphic tee trend this year. If I could wear a graphic tee every day I would. There are so many tees out there that express me that I just can't get enough of them.

On the flip side, some sellers have gotten way out of control on their prices. I mean $40 for a tee? 

Really?!? I think not. 

I wanted a some cool comfy tees but $40 a pop is a bit much. For those of you who are 'ballin on a budget' today I'll show you how I made my own professional looking tee for less.

On-Trend Affordable Prescription Eyeglasses
Gone are the days where prescription eyeglass wearers have to buy eyeglasses from the selection offered by their optometrist.

I've been mail ordering my prescription glasses online ever since paying $145 for a pair of eyeglasses I didn't love but bought because were the best-looking pair my optometrist offered. 

Once I figured out I could order my own prescription eyeglasses online I've been doing that ever since.

Braid Out on 4C Hair & New Rimmel London Matte Lipsticks

Braid Out on 4C Hair & New Rimmel London Matte Lipsticks
I've been loving the freedom that comes with having shorter hair and I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts. When my hair isn't in a protective style, it's usually worn in a blowout or twist out. When I do twist out, I can start with wet or dry hair depending on the look I'm going for. This one was done on wet hair which results in a smaller afro and tighter coiled hair.

After my wash routine, I towel dried my hair and did the L.O.C. method for moisture. L.O.C. is an acronym for Leave-in-Conditioner, Oil, and Cream. With the L.O.C. method, I saturate my hair with my leave in, then use coconut oil to seal in the moisture and work the cream into my hair as I style it.

4 Ways to Be Your Best from the Inside Out

People are often surprised by my age and think I'm younger than I am. I don't mind it now, but when I was in my twenties I hated looking young. I think the assumption is derived by observing my height (I'm 5,1) my build (I weigh 120 pounds), my hair, skin, and nails. 
4 Ways to Be Your Best from the Inside Out

In my early twenties, self-care became very important to me. Taking time to do things that made me happy and nurtured me from the inside out was a normal part of my routine. This got a little harder when I became a wife and mom. In all honesty, it fell by the wayside for some years. When our kids were little, self-care was put on the back burner. As my kids got older, I didn't naturally resume self-care habits. It wasn't until one day when my husband forced me to stop putting everyone first all of the time and to take time for myself. He noticed I was often unhappy and tired. I didn't realize, the kids had gotten older and it was okay to not give them every bit of my time and energy.

When my youngest son was eight years old, I put me back on the priority list. I set a goal to cultivate a habit of pampering myself with quality products, food, and healthy habits again. Five years later, I am glad I did. I just turned 40 years old and I feel amazing. Here are some of the main habits that contribute to my youthfulness and overall inner peace.

I am having an amazing summer and these animal print pants are making it even better. There's just something about putting on an outfit that allows you to express who you are. If I had to describe myself in one word it would be BOLD and that's what these pants make me feel.

They are from the LOFT and the print instantly caught my eye when I first saw them. They are linen with a navy blue and white animal print.

This Father's Day weekend was epic only because I got to spend it with the most amazing man evah!

I wanted to make sure he felt really special from the time he got off work Friday until the time he laid his head on his pillow Sunday night. That's pretty much what happened and all the while I gave him something absolutely gorgeous to look at.

My Weekend in Virginia Fashion Look Book

I spent a wonderful weekend away in Glen Allen, a small suburb in Richmond, Virginia. I wasn't sure what to expect since I'd never been there. We were heading up for a family reunion and they weather was unseasonable hot. Since it would be hot I packed some super light weight pieces to wear.
