Easy 70s Halloween Costume

We made a girls trip to New Orleans and wanted to dress up for Halloween while we were there! But we didn't want to do anything super crazy or expensive, so we decided to go as hippies/70s girls. Or how most people will call it.... #BASIC. Where we got our stuff: Tie-dye shirts - Me and my friend Brandee went to Hobby Lobby and bought t-shirts and Tulip brand Tie Dye.

If you.... - are a guy and your significant other forced you to read this, hi. - have never used anything on your face except water, hi, nice to meet you as well. I know this post is a little weird considering the fact my last post was basically a struggle bus post about my recent skin issues, but these 3 products are the absolute basics regardless of what problems you may have or don't have with your skin. These products are used to keep your skin as healthy as possible and to help prevent skin issues in the long run; nothing else. If you're looking for a post for a cure to acne, eczema, or something else, this post is NOT it . I'm gonna try to explain it in the easiest way possible for you guys, especially those who don't know a lot about skincare. There are sooo many skincare items that target all sorts of issues, but to have the best skin, you really need only 3 essentials: 1. SPF. Honestly if you're lazy and only want to choose one step (I do
