Recipe Wednesday: Current Need to Make Dish List

I feel like February came and went so quickly, it's been insane!  Life is been so busy lately...work has been stressful, I haven't been cooking & blogging as much as I would like.  Since March is right around the corner, and can be so long and drab, I wanted to get together a list of new recipes to try out.  I think this list is pretty decent, all of these recipes give me room to add in my own elements, they're great starting points for me, and look so delicious.

Baked Tilapia with Garlic Breadcrumbs by Cooktoria 
Tilapia is basically my favorite fish, it's so easy to cook & you can always switch up how you serve it.  I usually just make a sauce to accompany it, but I'm liking the sound of garlic breadcrumbs.  I'll def be making this in the near future.

What Blogging Has Taught Me: LLB's 6th Birthday!

I cannot believe today marks 6 years from starting Love. Life. Beauty.  

I started this blog my junior year in college, thinking it would be just for fun- I also thought it would totally tank.  I didn't tell my friends or family for the longest time that I had started this...I was nervous that people would think I was joining in on the blogger fad and wouldn't really care.  I thought that if I did fail at this endeavor, everyone who I told would think less of me...people would know I "failed" at something...and the thought of that freaked me out.

Giveaway: Tree of Life Serum Pack

It's a Fri-yay...AND a holiday weekend!!  YAY!

Thank you to everyone who entered the Instagram Valentine's Giveaway I just took part in with a few other bloggers.  I have yet another giveaway opportunity for everyone, this time with Tree of Life Skincare! 

I've been using a mixture of the Tree of Life Serums for about 3 weeks now.  The brand was nice enough to send me their Anti-Ageing Serum Combo Pack, which includes three serums that I've been using both in the morning and the evening.  I've been switching them out to use them all evenly.  Talk about a major punch of great ingredients...

The Hyaluronic Acid Serum has been my go to in the evening to help my skin's texture and overall appearance.  This is an ingredient I always make sure is somehow imbedded into my nighttime routine, and I am so happy this serum is, for a lack of a better term, specifically dedicated to it.  

I've been switching back and forth between this serum and the Retinol serum at night.  Retinol is another great ingredient to boost elasticity, increase moisture, and increase Vitamin A in the skin.  I've been using retinol in my nighttime routine for months now and the changes I have seen in my skin have been incredible.  I feel like my skin looks healthier and brighter in a way that I had not noticed before.

The last serum in the pack is the Vitamin C Serum, which is perfect for the morning.  Vitamin C helps to brighten your skin, fight free radicals, and up antioxidants.  It's a great refreshing step of my skincare routine and I really look forward to it every morning.  

I love serums like these where you use a dropper, I can easily control how much I'm using.

D.C. Happenings: Waxing the City in Del Ray, Alexandria

Waxing...the age old, it hurts, but I have to do it, beauty routine.  This is about to sound unreal but, I actually had a waxing experience over at the brand new Waxing the City in the super cute Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria.  I can honestly say I've never had an experience while getting my brows waxed...until I visited Waxing the City!

First of all, if you haven't ventured out to Del Ray, Alexandria, I highly advise it.  Go with some girlfriends for a wax, followed by happy hour somewhere on Mount Vernon Ave.  This area of Alexandria is so cute with a few great restaurants and coffee shops...the location for this new Waxing the City is perfect.
