This post is going to be a quick and short one because my lazy girl skincare routine is just that. This is my go to routine whenever I have a really late night or am just too tired to go to the sink.

Step 1. CLEANSE – Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water


Using a cleansing water is the first step in my routine and is super beneficial because it’s a triple threat. This product has a built in makeup remover, cleanser AND toner. I use this with a Shiseido cotton pad to remove all of my makeup first, then using another pad and a bit more  product, I cleanse my skin a bit further. The best part about this is that I don’t need to rinse anything off! Just wipe away and you’re good to go.

Step 2. MOISTURIZE – First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream


Since we removed our makeup, cleansed and toned our skins already, my last step is to moisturize! I use the FAB ultra repair cream because my skin is super dehydrated. This moisturizer is great to use for combo to dry skin and works phenomenally under makeup!

AND THAT’S IT. If you guys like this post and would like to see more lazy girl hacks let me know in the comments.


stay happy!

Ten Spanish Songs That’ll Take The Bore Out Of Your Chores

If you’ve never listened to Latin music while cleaning then you’re doing it wrong.. When I think back to my childhood of a typical Saturday morning, I imagine myself waking up to the sound of bachata blasting through the speakers and the potent smell of bleach in the air. (My grandmother literally used bleach to clean everything) It’s now become a habit to play Latin music on a day that I dedicate solely to chores and it makes the cleaning process so much more fun! Here’s a mix of fast and slow songs to speed up your day!

Disclaimer – Note that some of these songs are really old but are still some really fun hits.

1. Odio – Romeo Santos ft. Drake
2. El Perdon – Nicky Jam Ft. Enrique Iglesias
3. Eres Mia – Romeo Santos
4. Noche De Sexo – Wisin & Yandel Ft. Adventura
5. Te Quiero – DJ Flex
6. Besas Tan Bien – Farruko
7. Sigueme Y Te Sigo – Daddy Yankee
8. Ay Vamos Remix – J. Balvin Ft. Nicky Jam & French Montana

Happy cleaning!
