This All-Natural Soap For Sensitive Skin Exfoliates My Skin Gently With Coffee And Plantains

I have been following the @Terra_torry page on social media for a few months now. I first heard about the brand's owner, Kimberly Waldropt, through an event hosted by @shoponesunday where she spoke of her natural soap line catered to eczema prone and sensitive skin.

For those of you who aren't familiar, eczema is a condition that causes the skin to become itchy and inflamed.

I dealt with this condition severely in childhood where I would have significant patches on my inner arms and thighs. Although I still get patches in my adulthood those instances are few and far between but as a result I am always conscious about the kind of products I use.

Aside from Terra-Tory's story of origin, read more here, what gained my interest was the use of natural ingredients like aloe, plantains, coconut milk, sea moss and much more.

In addition, I was attracted by the complete push from the use of artificial and harmful toxins.

It took a little bit of research but after uncovering the many gems that this brand offers I was ready to make my first purchase.

Sweet Plantain + Coffee Scrub Cube

So, I ordered the sweet plantain + coffee scrub cube.

I did not have to wait long before receiving my order but let me tell you that I was constantly tracking the package and anxiously running to my window whenever I heard any sign of a truck.

When the package finally made it to my doorstep my excitement got the best of me, so much so that I forgot to document it but let me tell you that the simple and yet elegant packaging heightened my excitement. Oh! And the smell from the soap made me hop in the shower immediately to test it out.

I have now been using the Terra Tory soap for a few weeks and already I ask myself how I survived this long without it. Unlike many soaps that have left my skin feeling dry and itchy this soap does the opposite.

My skin happily absorbs the nutrient-dense ingredients and the exfoliating particles of coffee gently rids my skin of dead cells.

If you experience ezcema, skin sensitivity or just want to try something new I urge you to give this brand a try.

You've heard it before, the skin is the human body largest organ. So, when you feel a certain change like extreme dryness, itching etc... you ought to listen because it is your skin's way of communicating that something is wrong and that something could be your body soap.

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.
