This is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.

WHO NOMINATED ME AND MY THANKS

I was nominated by Andrea from The Perks of being Different . I thank her from the bottom of heart for this great award. I’m glad she thinks so much of my blog. What a great compliment this is especially coming from another great blogger.

ANDREA’S QUESTIONS TO ME

  1. Which Disney or Looney Toons character does your own character relate to? As I thought about this question, I finally decided that I couldn’t think of just one character but my character relates to a combination of characters. I think if we are really honest with ourselves everyone is a combination of characters. 
  2.  Would you like to go back to the 90’s, a time without internet? Actually, I was in college in the 90’s and we had internet at the college. However, I would love to go back to a time without internet. So much simpler. Of course, I’m one of those people who do not own a cell phone only a computer.
  3. Do yo like to cook from scratch?(make your own sauces, own dough from bread/pasta etc.) Cook?(laughing), I don’t cook. I think I cooked twice real meals but otherwise I like making popcorn the best.
  4. What would you do on a first date? I think I would learn as much as I could about my the guy I’m thinking about dating.
  5. Whats’ your favorite way of transportation? Hands Down A Car.
  6. What your favorite emoji? I’m sure there are more emojis out there on cell phones but since I don’t have a phone just a computer, my top 3 favorite emojis are:
  • Cat >”<
  • Graduation Girl 👩‍🎓
  • Santa Clause 🎅

Do’s And Don’ts Of Flashlight Safety

WELCOME

Hello and welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). I would like to talk to you about the Do’s And Don’ts Of Flashlight Safety. I can just here what some of you may be thinking and that is What do I need to know about flashlight safety? What you need to know may surprise you.

INTRODUCTION

As I mentioned briefly in the welcome flashlight safety is important. You see growing up as a child my father was a Safety Director. I learned a lot from him and I’m still learning from him. For example, just the other night I learned something about flashlight safety I didn’t know. I’ll get into that later in my post. You guessed it, flashlight safety is more than going to a store, picking out the color of flashlight you want and paying for it. Now on to the DO’s And Don’ts Of Flashlight Safety. I’m going to start with the Don’ts.

FLASHLIGHT DON’TS

  1. Don’t leave batteries in flashlights or anything else when it’s not going to be in use for a while.
  2. Don’t shove your flashlight under your bed or somewhere thinking you’ll be using it sometime soon. Take it from me the likelihood of that happening is slim and none.
  3. Don’t wait to your flashlight goes completely out to replace the batteries.  If the light on your flashlight is getting dim then it’s time to replace the batteries. Remember, you never know when the electric will go out so be prepared.
  4. Don’t wait to your battery gets corrosive to replace batteries. If your batteries are corrosive then it could hurt the workings of the flashlight.
  5. If for some reason your flashlight battery is past being corrosive and if you’re not sure then here is an example that happened to me. The other night I was looking for birthday cards and pictures when I came across a flashlight I had shoved under my bed. Guess what? That flashlight I found was completely ruined because it was past corrosive. In fact, There was a white powder on the book from the flashlight. As soon as I showed it to Dad he told me what the white powder was and to wash my hands immediately. The white powder was battery acid in a powdered form. When you see this white powder, trash your flashlight and wash your hands with soap and water. I’m showing you 3 different to show you what your should and shouldn’t look like. These pictures may look the same but it’s to show you which flashlights are bright, dim and dead.

FLASHLIGHT DO’S

  1. First, after buying a flashlight and of course some backup flashlights too. When you get home with your flashlights first decide if you’re going to use all of them if not then only put batteries in the ones to be used.
  2. Buy a flashlight with a very bright light. Usually the flashlights with other things on it and are made if you’re caught alongside the road will do.
  3. If you are able, try to make sure there is a flashlight in every room if not almost every room.
  4. Do buy a lantern and/or a portable light that can be used when the electric goes out. 

 

These are just a few of the Do’s and Don’ts of Flashlight Safety.

SORRY

Hi everyone, I’ve been having technical problems AGAIN!! I got a new theme for both of my blogs WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and now no notifications, Like Buttons or Sharing Buttons. I hope WordPress gets it fixed soon. I’m here to ask you kindly to please check out my projects. Click on the words All Projects then above my header which is Daisy Mae for both sites. When you click on All Projects squares will show up. How many squares will be a ? because it’ll depend on how many projects I have on each blog. My new theme supports testimonials but I won’t enable that until I get some. Once the squares come you’ll see the featured images. Go to the one you want to view and hopefully WordPress has the Sharing and Like Buttons there so you can Like and Share. If by some chance you got notified my project was published last night and you saw nothing, I really am sorry for that. I do hope you check my projects out. I sure would appreciate it.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING.

 

Washing Your Face

DSCN0467

WELCOME

Hello and welcome readers, I just got done doing the Beauty Tag that the amazing and awesome Simple Serenity’s blog. I was contacted about question #15. The person who contacted me was the amazing and awesome da-AL from HAPPINESS BETWEEN TAILS and suggested a post on #15.

INTRODUCTION

The question I was asked about was How Many Times Do You Wash Your Face Daily? Here is my answer for question #15. This may sound crazy but due to my sensitive skin, I don’t wash my face daily but only a few times a week. Everyone has their own Beauty/skin routine that they go through each day or each week and I’m no different. But how do we decide how many times we was our face? In my experience, it’s through trial and error and once you figure it out, you get rid of the previous skin routine and start a new one that’s better for you and your skin.

SKIN/BEAUTY ROUTINE

When you know what type of skin you have it is easier to know what type of skin routine you need to start. When I started my skin routine in my younger years, I washed my face daily then put on my makeup. Now that I’ve gotten older, my skin/beauty routine has had a complete makeover. I don’t wash my face daily anymore in fact, I wash my face weekly and the only makeup I wear is either chapstick, lip gloss or lipstick.

REASONS FOR CHANGING YOUR SKIN/BEAUTY ROUTINE

There are many reasons for changing your skin/beauty routine. Below are some of those reasons.

  • Skin type gets more sensitive as you age.
  • You clean your skin with one of those makeup remover wipes.
  • Your skin is tightening too much.
  • You might be getting those dreaded wrinkles.
  • You become allergic.

MY REASONS FOR CHANGING MY SKIN/BEAUTY ROUTINE

My reasons fit in with the first two. I found out my skin was becoming more sensitive when I found out while working I was allergic to ALL makeup. Yes, I said All makeup including that makeup made for sensitive skin. I also used makeup wipes which worked for a while until my face started going red. Not Good.

MY SKIN/BEAUTY ROUTINE NOW

My skin/beauty routine is so much simpler now. In fact, I wash my face with cold water once to twice a week  and I don’t use soap. Sound crazy? For me it dries out my face. The only makeup used now is chapstick and I wear lipstick or lip gloss when I go out somewhere.

CONCLUSION

Everybody’s will have a different skin/beauty routine because everyone has different skin types. Whether you use makeup remover wipes to clean your face, wash your face with soap and water, wash your face with just water or maybe you have another way you take care of your skin. I’m interested in knowing your skin type and also your before and after story of why you changed your skin/beauty routine. Please use the contact form below.

CHANGES!!!!

WHAT A PRETTY PICTURE IN THE FALL.

HELLO AND WELCOME

Hello and Welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE . Unfortunately, I’m here to tell you all I had to make some changes to my both of my WordPress sites since I just started getting Spammed/Trolled by a website I’m not even interested in.

CHANGES I MADE

  • From now on, I will be approving/disapproving comments. Most comments will be approved. The only difference is they won’t be approved right away.
  • I have Blacklisted 2 websites. This was a last resort.

WHY I MADE THE CHANGES

I made the changes because I got SPAMMED/TROLLED. This just started happening and I hope the 2 websites stop.

ASSURANCE

If you are a follower or regular reader, you most likely aren’t blacklisted. I hated going this way but it was the only way other going totally private.  I hope you keep coming and reading to both of my sites. If you need to know the sight please use the contact form to ask me and I will give it to you.

THANK YOU

Thanks In Advance for your patience. I do hope you keep coming to my sites and keep reading. Once again, the Blacklisted sites are sites that came to my sites because I liked a comment on someone’s website(not the blacklisted sites).  Once again the sites that are blacklisted are the SPAM/TROLLED  WEBSITES.
