Here in beautiful Cleveland, we are heading into the stay indoors months. Some of our readers may be braver than some and enjoy cold temperatures, but personally I enjoy a blanket and Netflix when it drops below 40°. I don’t mind staying indoors for months on end, since a few years back I adopted a strategy of preparing emotionally, mentally, and domestically and embraced the coziest of seasons: hygge season.
We have all heard of Mercury retrograde being a supposed month-long harbinger of disaster, but are planetary retrogrades really all as bad as social media makes them out to be? There were six (6!) planets that went into retrograde during Hot Girl Summer and I feel like it went pretty well.
As we graduate from our 20s, we are all eventually forced to reckon with our skin being classified as aging skin. This is especially troublesome considering many feel as if we are simply graduating from one intensive, time-consuming regimen to the next. If you had (or still have) troubled skin as a teen, you know dealing with acne always felt like an experiment in what combinations of products would work. And with aging skincare products, there is a safari of serums and extracts (snail secretion cream? Yikes.) that can be just as daunting to sort out. . As you might imagine, I was very pleased to find out that there is a simple, one-step treatment that tackles both aging and acne-prone skin.
CBD is the new wellness buzzword, and for good reason.
Recent developments in extraction methods have produced a cannabinoid product that offers the relaxation and de-stressing elements of cannabis, without getting high. CBD, or cannabidiol, is almost exactly the same product as THC
(the active compound in marijuana), but lacks one atom. This particular molecular structure is what makes us experience all the health benefits of cannabis without experiencing its psychoactive effects, or breaking the law. CBD has this structure because it is extracted from a hemp plant rather than a marijuana plant, and is thus legal under the US Farm Bill of 2014.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT TAYLOR
Taylor is a go with the flow kind of girl who tries not to take life too seriously. One thing she does take seriously though is skincare. Taylor focuses on the connection between beauty/wellness and happiness. When she’s not learning the newest skincare technique or studying products, you can find Taylor spending time with her dog, Dobby or her mother, Rebecca. Having such an amazing female role model definitely shaped her into the strong-willed woman she is. Her mother is her biggest inspiration; and also her biggest fan. Stop in to see Taylor and you’ll leave feeling good on the inside, and looking good on the outside. [Read more…]
