3 Homemade Face Masks to Try for Your Next Night In

Sometimes everyone needs to take a little R & R once in a while and what's a better way to do that than a self-care day? In addition to the nice bubble bath or decadent meal that you may treat yourself to, think about incorporating one of these face masks to definitely put your best face forward for the next day!

Oat and Lemon


It seems like everyone has their own personal struggle with acne and it only gets worse when stress enters the equation. Well, that is where this particular face mask can be of help! This homemade mask takes ten minutes to make and contains oats, honey, lemon, and the optional tea tree oil (if you happen to have it lying around the house). Oats contain a cleansing agent that can be used on sensitive skin and honey aids in the opening of pores. The lemon in this mask can help with oily skin and get rid of acne scars and if you choose to aid the tea tree oil, you will be enhancing the antibacterial properties this mask has.

Here's what you need:

2 tablespoon old fashioned oats

1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoon honey

4 drops tea tree oil

Here's how you do it:

1. Grind the oats

2. Mix the ground oats with the lemon, honey, and tea tree oil

3. Apply to the face for 15 minutes and rinse with cold water and a washcloth

4. Enjoy saying goodbye to acne!

Yogurt and Turmeric


Turmeric has become a household name as of late, involving itself not only in cooking but self-care as well. This spice can help reduce inflammation and bring evenness back to your skin tone. The benefit of yogurt is found in lactic acid. The lactic acid present in yogurt helps to lift away dead and damaged skin cells, allowing your new dewy complexion to shine through.

Here's what you need:

1 tablespoon of natural plain yogurt

1 tablespoon of honey

1 tablespoon turmeric powder

Here's how you do it:

1. Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl

2. Apply to face for 10-15 minutes

3. Rinse with cold water and washcloth

4. Astonish friends with your beautiful new complexion and even skin texture

Honey and Avocado 


What's a face mask article without the mention of this super-fruit? Avocado helps to nourish and hydrate your skin, as well as aiding in reducing the harmful effects the sun can have upon your face through this rehydration. So, if you've been gardening all morning or hanging out at the beach with your friends on your day off, this is the face mask to do when you get home. If you really wanted to indulge in the hydration aspect, incorporate extra virgin olive oil into this mask.

Here's what you need:

1/2 ripe avocado

1 teaspoon plain organic yogurt

1 teaspoon honey

For maximizing hydration: 1-2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

Here's how you do it:

1. Mash avocado in small bowl

2. Add all other ingredients and combine well

3. Apply to face for 10-15 minutes

4. Marvel at how incredibly smooth your face has become

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
