IM NOT JUST A FASHION/BEAUTY BLOGGER.

I just wanted to write this post because I wanted to clarify what my blog is about. I'm not a beauty guru and I'm not a how-to DIY internet queen. I feel like the main message of my blog has sort-of been misconstrued somehow along the way and I'm going to clear that all up today. But to do that, I need to give some background on how SpiceAdviceXO came about, so here goes nothing :)

Soo, I don't have any social networks because I kind of always felt like I never had much to say or that if I did say something, it wouldn't be valued. That's kind of been my life. Being the youngest, sometimes you feel like your thoughts and feelings aren't valued as much as you would like them to be and unfortunately for me, those feelings latched on to me and stayed for what feels like an eternity. Those feelings have affected almost every aspect of my life. At one point, it felt like it was physically debilitating and was just ruining me.

5 THINGS I LIKE AND DISLIKE ABOUT MYSELF...

Hey guys, today I wanted to do a personal post and just lay it all out on the table.It's definitely a 180 from what I usually post, but I wanted to switch it up a bit today. I like to be as raw and honest as I can with myself, so today, I've decided to compile a list of the top 5 things that I like and dislike about myself. This is usually something that I'll write in my personal journal but , I've decided to grow a pair today and post it up on my blog. It's another place where I can be able to express myself, and let loose without feeling any judgement, and if I can influence one of you guys to take a hard and honest look at yourself, then it'll be all worth it. So with that being said, here's my list of things that I like and dislike about myself.

Ever have that annoying guy chasing after you that just cant accept the fact that your not interested? No matter what you say or do he just can't take a hint? Well I got the solution for ya!! Here are 4 easy tips that are guaranteed to work!! I promise you ;)


1.)GET REALLLLYY UGLY, LITERALLY.

This may be pretty hard to do but skip on brushing your hair for a day, don't wear that pink lipstick that he likes, hell, don't even brush your teeth. Try to look as horrible as you can so that in no way, shape or form he finds you at all appealing.

Social gatherings can be pretty tough. The pressures to be cool and fit in are always at an all-time high in these sort of situations.

1.) "Is my hair OK?"

3.) "Let me just pretend to be busy on my phone." 

These are regular thoughts that go through all of our heads. BUT I'M HERE TO HELP YOU GUYS!!! as usual :) Here are my top three tips on how not to look like the awkward sore thumb out of the group at a social gathering.

SKIN CARE FACE MAPPING?

I'm completely obsessed with everything and anything that has to do with skin care, so I try my best to educate myself on the dos and don'ts and everything in between. Lately, I've been looking into something called "The Face Mapping Theory". Chinese dermatologists believe that your face is the window to your overall health and what's going on within your body. Here's a diagram to further explain this theory :)

5 HORRIBLE SKIN DON'TS!!

We all know how overwhelming and complicated skincare can be.We often always hear about what we should do to our skin and what new products and at home remedies to try and experiment with, but I don't think we hear enough about the don'ts of skin care and the bad habits that gradually destroy our skin over time. I created a list of my top five skin don'ts from my personal experience through out the years with my own skin. Here are my top five:


USING THE WRONG PRODUCTS

With the billions of products and brands out there, where do we begin to find the right products that are going to do right by our skin and meet its special needs. Understanding your skin is essential for having healthy,flawless skin.You cannot have healthy skin if your not meeting your skins needs and requirements.Ask yourself what is my skin lacking? If you have dry skin, look for products that focus on ultimate hydration and that are gentle and moisturizing. If your skin is oily, try to find products that contain salycic acid and benzoyl peroxide to maintain and control the over production of oil in your skin, Use the right products for your skins special and important needs.

Last minute, I decided to go on a trip to The Dominican Republic in a desperate attempt to salvage what was left of my summer break (I'll explain in another post) I also had to go to settle some personal things,but it was mostly to enjoy myself for a few weeks and lay around in the hot tropical sun!! I'm not a photographer nor am I trying to be and I usually try to avoid pictures at all costs, but I've realized the importance of photos and capturing wonderful lasting memories.Here are a few photos of my lovely vacation :)

Hope you enjoy!!

Don't be upset if your not where you want to be at this stage in your life,you are a work in progress.
