Wednesday Roundup

So lately I've been going on and on about how busy I am, but I just now realized I haven't even offered an explanation as to why.  Well, folks, the story is that I'm interning for a magazine right now (YAY! Life dream semi-realized!) and we are just about to send our Winter/Spring issue to the printer and things are a little hectic.  I love love love my job, but balancing it with my blog and school work is making it really difficult for me to give 100% in all three areas.  But, I promise to try harder to be more dedicated to my little blog and I expect my readers, a.k.a. you fine people, to help me stick to that promise.

But enough with the mumbo jumbo, let's get on with this week's Wednesday Roundup!

Clementine Daily
As a blogger, I'm always on the lookout for exciting new websites to read for inspiration and I'm excited to share one of my new faves with you today!  Clementine Daily, one of the internet's newest gems, is serving up daily posts for ladies seeking advice in food, style, beauty, life, etc.  And don't you dare assume that their posts will be preachy like a lot of online advice columns.  Not at all.  In fact, reading Clementine Daily is just like having a chat with your really wise best friend.

Who knew that adding a little bit of oatmeal to your cleanser in the morning would increase the softness of your skin by like 200%?  Ok, yea, maybe those numbers aren't scientifically measurable, but I gotta tell you that ever since I've started mixing oats in with my Johnson & Johnson's Head-to-Toe Baby Wash in the morning, my skin is feeling a lot smoother and definitely less irritated.  The Daily Green actually has a great article on the benefits of oatmeal for the skin.  Check it out here.

Konjac Sponges
I've discussed konjac sponges on here before, but since Boscia has introduced their own version of the Asian wonder product onto the market, I figured I should re-adress the issue.  A konjac sponge is a little Asian root vegetable that is naturally alkaline and can be used to cleanse your face, with or without actual face wash.  Don't be fooled by Boscia, though.  Sure, they are a reputable brand and they do offer some awesome products, but their sponges are way overpriced at $18 a piece! Buy your konjac sponge here for about $10 each.  Same product, better deal.

That's all I've got for today.  How is your week going?
