Besides the fact that we have to cope with uncomfortable periodes, us women have to go through a lot. We plan, we worry, we get moody, we overthink things. Oh and did I already mention the pressure of living up to ridiculous beauty standards? Or constantly having to shave almost our entire body?! Even though things aren’t always easy, there are still plenty of reasons to think of why being a woman is so awesome. In honor to celebrate International Women’s Day I’m listing 10 benefits of being a woman. Happy International Women’s Day ladies!

Last week I picked up a box of charcoal pore strips from Action. The charcoal pore strips are from Alvira Skin Essentials: a skincare line that offers a extensive range of affordable products for beautiful and healthy-looking skin. Also good to know is that the complete line is dermatologically tested and largely free of parabens.
I heard a lot of good things about charcoal pore strips and after watching so many YouTube videos about it, I just had to try it myself. Especially with having combination skin I regularly get unpleasant surprises from blackheads that keep popping up on my nose. The charcoal pore strips from Alvira Skin Essentials claim to remove blackheads and cleanse pores. I’m very anxious to see if this product works.

Today I’m reviewing one of The Body Shop’s best sellers: the Vitamin E Moisture Cream. I’ve been using this product for a while now so it’s time to share my experience. I have combination skin which means that I mostly have dry skin except for my T-zone. The lightweighted Vitamin E Moisture Cream promises to protect the skin and locks in moisture for 48 hours of hydration without leaving the skin greasy. I will also be reviewing the Vitamin E Eye Cream that I’ve been using as well. The Vitamin E Eye Cream is supposed to hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes and help reduce fine lines and dark circles. According to The Body Shop both products are suitable for all skin types. Well, that all sounds very promising. But can these products live up to their promises? Let’s find out.

What better way is there to capture your precious memories than by collecting them into a scrapbook? I have always wanted to do something creative with our pictures so I decided to make a romantic scrapbook of our first five years together. In those five years we made a lot of memories and of course tons of pictures. First I started by buying a very large album, sorting out all our pictures and gathering as many craft supplies as I could get. But then, how do you start scrapbooking? Making each page creative can be quite a big challenge. Honestly, it took me a lot of work but overall I really enjoyed creating this scrapbook. The best part was reliving those good old memories together with my boyfriend.
You can make a scrapbook for any occassion you want. For example you can make one of your vacation or perhaps of your baby’s first year. Holidays, birthdays and weddings are also very popular scrapbook themes. If you’re considering to make a scrapbook for the love of your life but don’t know where to start, I have 20 romantic scrapbook ideas for you that will help you out.
