Black Friday Lush Haul!!!!

Hey Everyone!!!
I finally got to go to a Lush store and see what all the hype is about!!!  My husband and I spent way more than we intended but they had so many fun and good smelling things it was hard to pass them up.  Watch my video to see what I got!

All of these products can be found at or at any Lush retail store (check the website for one near you).  Also please keep in mind all of these products were purchased by my husband and I, we weren't given any of these products other then the couple of samples that I received from the sales girl of things I wanted to try before buying. 

Tattoo After Care!

Everyone has different opinions and ideas of what works best to heal a brand new tattoo, so I thought I would share what has worked for me and was also recommend by my amazing and reputable tattoo artist, Shannon aka Mo'Better owner of Inkestry in Livermore, Ca.

1.  Give your tattoo some air, your artist may or may not bandage your tattoo upon completion but ultimately bandaging isn't totally necessary unless you are bleeding or oozing a lot in which case a gauze bandage will help soak it up on your way home.  Once you get home remove your bandage and following the next steps...

2.  Clean your tattoo with anti-bacterial soap once you get home and 3 to 4 times daily for the first few days.  Dial Anti-Bacterial foaming cleanser works great as the foam is gentle and easy to spread around without much rubbing and easy to wash off without much rubbing.  Once clean pat your tattoo dry, DO NOT rub with a towel or paper towel, very gently pat it dry.

3.  Once your tattoo is clean apply a thin layer of Aquaphor healing ointment.  This ointment works great for healing tattoos and is what I have used with much success.  Make sure you do not cake the ointment on, you want your tattoo to still be able to breath, remember it is an open wound and you don't want to further irritate it or cause infection.  When your tattoo begins to feel dry or tight re-apply a thin layer of aquaphor again, but make sure to wash your hands first.

4.  DO NOT submerge/soak your tattoo in water, this will not only open it up to infection but could cause our colors to bleed and fade.  Showering is ok. It will be safe to take baths or swim again after at least a month.

Additional tip... if you have any spot that looks a little red/infected/irritated be sure to clean your tattoo more frequently and after applying your thin layer of aquaphor apply a very very very small dab of an antibiotic ointment to only the area that is irritated.  You do not want to use antibiotic ointment all over your tattoo or in a large amount as it could case your tattoo color to bleed and fade, but a small dab over the aquaphor is safe for irritated areas. 

Lastly, your tattoo will shed the first layer of skin, this is completely normal during the healing process and will look like pieces of color.   Also be sure to not scratch or pick at your tattoo as this can also cause infection and cause fading of the color. 

I hope this helps everyone out there!

Removed my Vlogs

Hiiiii!  Well just in case anyone was reading this and wondered why I didn't have any "Vlogs" up on my channel as mentioned in my last post.  I decided to remove them for the fact that I don't think I'm ready to share vlogs like that.  More appropriate I think would be updates via my bog here and maybe a question and answer once I have more followers and more people asking questions.  I'm definitely an open book so I'm willing to share my experiences with others, but for the purpose of gaining a loyal audience for my videos and helping outhers out I'll just stick to uploading useful videos.  If you ever have any questions please don't hesitate to ask, again I am totally an open book. 

Also I appreciate everyone who has been following my channel so far, I really really appreciate it and I know right now the quality and setup is pretty amateur but I promise with time it will get better.  We all have to start somewhere.

Have a wonderful night!!!
