Review: Organik Botanik Brown Sugar Face Scrub

In the midst of our unpredictable Canadian Spring, there comes a time when we Canadian gals have to, what I call, “descale”.  This means all the dry indoor air leaves my skin so dry, I literally feel like I need to shed layers of Winter skin… I know, gross right?

I guess my new “jam” has been Winner’s and I’ve been having good luck finding little steals here and there.. But this.. this right here…

Organik Botanik Brown Sugar Face Scrub

This was the WORST product I’ve ever bought in my LIFE!!  At first, it felt like other facial scrubs when I rinsed it out I noticed my skin was a bit shiny like I had put oil on my face.   To this very day my face is a hot mess!  My forehead and cheeks feel like sandpaper and I have cystic acne on my chin!!  When I break out it’s usually one angry pimple, but this??!!  OMG it destroyed my skin!!  With this in mind, I’m going back to my favourite skincare treatment  (Biotherm Plankon Essence) to fix this face somehow.

I paid $7.99CDN for this, so basically I paid $8.00 for my break out!  It’ll be a while before try anything like this again! lol

Hope you guys had a great day.. I’m going back to living with a bag over my head until this angry breakout goes away.  If you see this anywhere.. keep walking, it’s horrible.

Late night organizing

I spent the entire day getting my schedule together for the upcoming week, from making a new playlist for my radio show to getting my tasks in order.  I have some videos to edit and I can’t wait to upload them.  I also have some interviews to plan for as well as content to get organized.  I admit, I’ve been all over the place, but I’m getting closer to be more consistent.  Believe me when I say that this is one of the biggest challenges for me.

For example, it’s 12:09am on I’ve been so distracted with Twitter and my Instagram feeds and having a blast.  I love laughing with my online folk, I can’t help but to share a few crazy tweets and pictures.  Ah well, at least I’m having fun and meeting new people in the worldwide web.  I can honestly say I’ve met amazing people, they could also be catfishes but at least I’ll have fun trying to find out. haha

Ok, I’ve really got to focus.. omg I’m the worst! haha

Halfway there

Another Wednesday and we’re halfway to the end of the week.  My new time schedule for my radio shows are working out great.  My evening shows have been so much fun and interacting with my online peeps while I do the show has left me crying with laughter.  I’ve met more great people that share my sense of humour and it’s so refreshing.  It reminds me why I love what I do.  Making people laugh so they can forget about whatever is bothering them is my goal.

Getting into my new routine is so exciting and is solidifying my businesses. I’m getting closer to my goals and I’m thoroughly enjoying the journey.  I’ve learned so much and I am on the verge of getting more education for my businesses.  Next on my list is my promotion and marketing plans, I’ve found that this can be tricky and I’m exploring different strategies for each of my businesses.  I have a couple ways involving social media (of course) combined with some “old school” business practices I’ve learned over the years.  It feels great to be able to execute and tweak my skills and watch them evolve into things I never thought was possible.  I have to remind myself to take my time and work on my projects being mindful of the small details.

I’m keeping my eyes on the prize!

Forming habits

Today, I fulfilled my promise to my peeps and myself  that I would upload a video every day and post on my website.  I’m proud that I did it!

My radio show is going great and I have added live video streaming on Periscope (@StilettoSuprmom).  Everything seems to be going smoothly and the more time I practice editing videos, the better I get.  I am going to stick to my new schedule to discipline myself for the upcoming huge event I’m planning.

It takes two weeks to form a habit and I am sticking to it and exercising my mind to work towards my goals this year.  Sure enough when I changed my mindset things are falling into place.  I asked and now I’m receiving and I can’t express how happy I continue to be.

I’ve posted 2 videos so far, listed below, and I look forward to recording more.  I hope you all have positive vibes for 2017.

Thank you all or joining me on my journey.

Much love,

SS

Wheels are in motion…

 

IMG_0042

After much reflection of the past 2015, I cannot ignore the fact that I have met the most talented and the most down to earth people in the world, thus far.  My curiosity with the internet and the entertainment world has not only turned into a passion but has turned into a mission.  During my time on the internet I have had the honour of meeting producers, writers, artists and promoters.  I must say, being a woman in the world of entertainment is not an easy journey, but along the way, I have earned the respect of many who also believe in my goal.

Independent artists, in any capacity, have the extra challenge of getting heard or being seen without a lot of help and it has always been my mission to assist these artists.  The internet has so many avenues to explore and it can be a daunting and frustrating time.  In my previous interviews, the artists have always said the same thing, “Time has changed, most companies only look at my followers, not my talent…”  I can’t tell you how taken aback I was when I realized the same thought was shared with so many talented people.  YES, the social media game is fierce, but when the artists are left discouraged because of their followings, it makes it clear why people do outlandish things for internet attention.  Producing good work has somehow fallen to the wayside with a focus on the quick seller.  My hope is that time will change, yet again, so talent is the focus and priority.

In this new year, my major projects will be to hold a large event for indie artists only and more radio entertainment.  I will continue to share and entertain with my shenanigans through my Live video streaming, videos and all my social medias.  I can’t express how happy and fulfilled I am having found my niche in the world.  I am both grateful and oh so pumped for the upcoming projects and I can’t wait to share this portion of my journey with all my amazing supporters.

Thank you all so much for being my homies! (yes I am “homie” years old, lol)

Much love to all my Sweets, I’ll keep y’all posted! 😉

A Look at Social Media

As most know, I’ve been involved in social media from way back in the ICQ days when chat rooms were the rage.  I remember when internet was finally available to us and like most “kids” we relished in the information highway, we met people and for some of us, we got ourselves kicked out of chat rooms for profanity. lol

With the birth of Facebook and Twitter I found myself lost and admittedly addicted to the interactions online.  Facebook became a place for my family and Twitter became a place for.. Me!

The introductions to new technology and gadgets brought more of my online world into my life.  Yes, the whole internet/gadget mix can be extremely distracting, but what I have found more of is that it has opened more doors for my career and have introduced me to some of the greatest people I could meet without even leaving my house.

Now, in my last radio show, I touched on the fact that nudity and internet porn is here and it is here to stay.  Strong opinions of sex online and whether it should be recognized are prevalent.  The debate whether to blame the naked person or the viewer is heavily weighted on both sides.

Knowing that the risqué sexual side of the internet is here to stay, I find myself on the fence about the whole debate in itself.  Being an independent woman, I have the freedom to display myself or not, that being said, when it comes to the internet and let’s say my Instagram account, I don’t have control over who sees my pictures and what they do with them.  Now, with the introduction to YouTube videos and live streaming, we again have been subjected to the dilemma of nudity and others’ sexual escapades.  There are many apps and sites where one can be sexual and even get paid for it and pay to see it.  I wonder whether to blame the nudity or the person watching it.

The debate and the controversy will continue and as a mother, I can educate my children, monitor what they do online and be aware.
