BLOGMAS || Day Twelve || Spice up your Hot Coco

It's hot Coco time! Today I wanted to share some of my favorite ways to spice up your hot Coco for this holiday season! I have always been a hot Coco lover and have always experimented with adding tons of goodies to my mug so I had to share my favorite ways to spice it up! 

All of these will go best with whatever way you decide to make hot Coco.

Reese's Hot Coco
I add a small spoonful of peanut butter into the hot mixture and let it completely melt. I then top it with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and then, of course, I add some chopped Reese's 

Nutella Hot Coco
I add a small spoonful of Nutella into the hot mixture and let it completely melt. I then top it with whipped cream and marshmallows on top. 

Chocolate Hot Coco
I basically cover the bottom of my cup with chocolate sauce and then add my hot mixture on top. I then top it off with chocolate whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and chocolate shavings if I have some!

Peppermint Hot Coco
I remember doing this one for the longest time! We always had extra candy canes laying around because of school goodie bags and what not. I melt a candy cane or two into the hot mixture and let them completely melt. I then top it with whipped cream, marshmallows and crushed candy canes. 

How do you like your hot Coco?

BLOGMAS || Day Eleven || Favorite Bath & Body Works Candles

STOP DROP AND RUN OVER TO BATH & BODY WORKS! All 3 wick candles are $12.50 which is a major discount from the $24.50 original price. 

Since they are currently on sale and you can score a really nice deal when you add coupons I wanted to share some of my favorite scents with you guys. I have bought way too many Bath & Body Works candles over the years and this year with all the deals and coupons was no exception. 

They completely spiced up their 2017 candle packaging this year which of course for myself and everyone who has candle addict written on their forehead this draws you in even more. Goodbye money!

So let's hop right into some of my favorite candles! 

Cooling Peppermint, Fresh Spearmint, Coconut Water

Made with notes of Iced Cranberries and Orange Essential Oil

Green Sage, Sandalwood, Tonka Bean

Bubbly Champagne, Sparkling Berries, Juicy Tangerine

Maple Syrup, Golden Waffles, Pumpkin Spice, Brown Sugar

They also I am assuming are sold out of this one online but my family's favorite candle and actually the only one we will ever light is the 
Hot Cocoa & Cream candle! 

Not only do I recommend all of these flavors but my family is a huge fan of them too! Which holiday scents are your favorite from Bath & Body Works?

BLOGMAS || Day Nine || Winter Skincare Update

Hey, beauties! As I write this snow is falling and sticking to the ground here in New York! I wanted to give you a winter skincare update since today I will be pampering myself all day. Let's hop right into today's post!

When winter comes I try to make very small adjustments to my skincare routine and make sure no matter what adjustments I make, I do them one at a time to see if I react badly to any specific item. Sensitive skincare probs!
I have kept the basics of my routine the exact same and that includes washing in the morning with a mild cleanser from my local spa and washing at night with my Clarisonic and the same cleanser. After I cleanse at night I always go right into doing my acne treatment which is the same as it was. It includes me wiping my face down with my Cane + Austin Acne Retexture Pads+ and using Aczone which was prescribed to me by my dermatologist.

Recently I have wanted to add some extra things into my routine, one is a toner and one is a good mask. I decided on the Humphreys Witch Hazel as my toner which I added into my morning routine. After my skin adjusted to the witch hazel, I decided to slowly add a mask and decided to try out the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing Mask. I use this mask three times a week with apple cider vinegar as the liquid.
Both of these items have completely changed my skin. I have much less redness, my pores are noticeably smaller and my acne scars are getting lighter with every use. Overall, I could not be happier that I decided to add these items in.

PS, after Blogmas I will be doing a full-blown review of the mask!

Do not forget to add in a good moisturizer for not only your face but your body too. I find that the in shower moisturizers are the easiest for me to use so if you haven't look into those as well. Along with a heavy duty lip balm that will keep your lips nice in this chilly weather!

Have you added anything into your skincare routine lately? Have you changed up some products because of the colder weather? Let me know in the comments! 💓
