WHY I LOVE ME TAG

2658149737babd63f8095af21bbe8792

You’ve heard the saying “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. How true this is because what may be ugly to one person may be pretty to another. So before you go calling someone ugly or different remember there’s someone out there that might consider you ugly and also remember we are all different in one way or another.

10 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT ME

  1. I LOVE MY HAIR. My hair is naturally curly and I only have to get it cut a few times. Also, I haven’t had to color or dye my hair yet. I have NO grey hairs. I love the fact I can wash my hair and go. No mouse, styling, curling iron needed.
  2. I LOVE HOW I CARE. I love how I can care about others when they come to me with their problems.
  3. I LOVE THE FACT I’M A BULLYING SURVIVOR. You read right I survived being bullied. I was bullied through college and with the support of my family and my faith in God got me through it.
  4. I LOVE THE FACT I ACHIEVED 2 DEGREES.  I graduated from a community college with an Associate Degree in Elementary Education then transferred to a 4 year university where I achieved a Sociology Degree(BS Degree). I was told after Highschool by a counselor that I would never achieve either of these degrees.
  5. I LOVE THE FACT I’M SINGLE. I must admit that this was something I wasn’t crazy about when I was younger but as I got older and wiser and I got I actually love being single. I can do things when I want and can change my schedule if need be.
  6. I LOVE HOW I’M DIFFERENT/SPECIAL. I’m one of a kind and despite what others may think I love the fact I’m special/different from other people.
  7. I LOVE THE FACT I HAVE ROYALTY IN MY ANCESTRY. Yes, that’s right, I have royalty in my ancestry. Queen Elizabeth is in my ancestry(Not the current one). I didn’t even get an invitation to either royal wedding either. Guess it got lost in the mail. LOL 
  8. I LOVE MY BLUE EYES. I love my blue eyes because they go with every outfit and I don’t need to wear colored contacts.
  9. I LOVE MY KINDNESS. I’m one who likes to meet new people and go up to people and say hi and welcome them. I not only enjoy meeting new people but learning about others and where they come from.
  10. I LOVE LISTENING TO OTHERS. I like listening to others problems and giving them advice. Sometimes it’s easier because we’ve been through the same/similar situation.
  11.    I Love Me Because I’m  A Christian. This may seem like a crazy answer to some people but when I asked Jesus into my heart my life totally changed for the good. I’ve been blessed  many times over. Is my life easier? Not always but at least I know Jesus is there to help me.

           I could go on and on about What I Love About Me but won’t because my post                 would be too long.

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.

BEAUTY TAG

DSCN0467Hello everyone and welcome. Simple Serenity has done a Tag called the Beauty Tag and nominated everyone who reads her post which can be found HERE. Please understand my answers will be from when I was younger mostly since I’m allergic to ALL makeup I’ve tried. I want to Once Again, I want to thank Simple Serenity for nominating everyone who read her post/blog.

1.) What do you love about makeup? 

When I wore makeup  I loved it because it covered up my blemishes. It also made me look good too.

2.) How long does it take for you to do your makeup?

When I wore makeup it took anywhere 5 to 10 minutes. Since I only where lipstick or chapstick now it doesn’t take that long.

3.) Do you remember your first makeup item?

NO

4.) Will you leave the house without makeup?

Yes. Since I’m allergic, I do it a lot.

5.) Favorite lipstick?

Anything on sale, right color and as long as it looks good. Favorite — No.

6.) Name a makeup crime that you hate?

There are many but one that comes to mind is when I was in college, a young woman was coming up the hill I was going down and I thought  I’d entered a Halloween party this young woman had that much makeup on and it was on thick and it looked to be in layers too. I could go on and on about this crime but won’t.

7.) What product do you buy mostly?

Lipsticks and glosses. I have a lot.

8.) One makeup product you can do without?

Eyeliners.

9.) Favorite makeup hack?

Always carry a cosmetic mirror/powder to touch up your makeup.

DSCN046810.) Matte lips or Lip gloss?

Glossy lips all the way but sometimes wear matte lipstick.

NO.

Face powder was my most cherished beauty product.

Tough question. I really like the Clinique brand.

Very Sensitive, Pale, Freckled and normal to oily.

15.) How many times do you wash your face daily?

This may sound crazy but due to my very sensitive skin, I don’t wash my face daily but only a few times a week.

16.) Any Acne story?

Yes. In my younger years, I used an Acne cream to try to get rid of my acne because I knew it worked. I used it this time to get rid of my acne and I broke out with more acne. It had the opposite reaction.

17.) Do you like trying out new skin care products or do you stick to a routine?

Stick to a routine.

18.) Do you think you look good even when you don’t have makeup on?

Absolutely. I love how I look and if other people don’t like how I look, that’s their problem.

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.
