Sister. I love having a sister and couldn’t be more grateful for the friendship we share. We’ve always been super close. Plus, having a second closet to choose from when deciding what to wear is the best feeling ever! Did I also mention I’m thankful for her sharing abilities?!

Curling Wand. Having naturally curly hair is both a blessing and a curse. You never quite know how your curls are going to look in the morning. I can’t tell you how many times my curling wand has saved the day!

Coffee. When it comes to those unbearable 8 a.m classes, coffee is a god send. Not only does it make me appear more human, it acts as my most fashionable accessory on days when I’m rocking yoga pants and an over-sized sweatshirt.

Perfume. Silly I know, but smelling good just makes me happy. I love spraying on my own special scent in the morning or before heading out on that special date!

Enza Products. I’m so grateful for ALL of my Enza Products and for the confidence they have given me to put my best face forward every day. Pimple free equals a happier me!

Shoes. I seriously can’t have enough shoes. Buying a new pair of shoes is like sampling Godiva Chocolates for the first time. Excitement takes over and nothing can stop you from indulging!

Chapstick. I hate to admit it, but I’m a more-than-occasional lip licker. End result… dry, irritated lips. Thank you chapstick for bringing back my smile!

Parents. I’ve learned so much from them over the years. One of the most important life lessons they have taught me, that I believe to be true, is that beauty starts from the inside. A kind, compassionate heart is a beautiful heart!

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Happy Thanksgiving Beauties!

WHAT I’M THANKFUL FOR

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, I want to take a step back and think about everything I’ve been blessed with in my life so far. I have SO MANY things to be thankful for, but here’s a few things that make the top of my list:

My parents. They are my biggest supporters. I honestly cannot thank them enough times every single day. I can’t wait to see them over the holidays!

My big brothers. Not only do they protect me from just about anything and everything, they are two of the coolest dudes I’ve ever met. I wouldn’t trade them for anything!

Chocolate. I just can’t be thankful enough for cocoa. I don’t care what flavor, shape, or form it comes in, I love it all. Yummy.

My travels. I am so grateful for all the places I’ve been given the opportunity to travel to in my life so far. There really isn’t an experience quite like visiting another part of the world. Just this past September I visited Paris and it was AMAZING.

My Enza products. I am so in love with these products that it actually hurts. Ever since I’ve started using Enza Essentials, my skin has changed in the best way, and I can’t be thankful enough.

My dog Miller. He is my pride and joy. The greatest dog ever. Okay, I may be a little biased. But it’s true!

Coffee. Wow am I ever thankful for coffee! Especially on Monday mornings. I can’t get enough.

COFFEE AND YOUR SKIN

tired

Ahhhhh… sweet, sweet coffee. Oh how I love you when I’m feeling sleepy. And I’m not alone – many people absolutely cannot function without sipping on you first thing in the morning. But, could you be the cause of acne in adults?

Many adults suffer from acne. It’s annoying and frustrating. Recently, the number of adults who have acne has risen – and some are looking at coffee to be a cause behind the skin issue.

If you fall into the four-or-more-cups-a-day coffee addict group, your testosterone levels increase, which can lead to hormonal breakouts. Coffee also causes your adrenal glands to over-react to everyday stressors, making your stress hormones go a little bit crazy as well, leading to obnoxious breakouts.

So, what should you do now? If you are struggling with acne but need a little extra boost in the mornings, there are healthy alternatives you can do! Try replacing your java with green tea. Green tea has SO many benefits to it. It gives you the caffeine you want while being loaded with antioxidants to keep your skin looking and feeling fantastic.

water

Another option? Water! Starting off your day with a glass or two of water gives you a serious hydration boost that leaves you feeling awake and refreshed. Try adding fresh lemon slices – this will give you a Vitamin C fix that will make your skin look amazing and taste buds happy!

Are you ready to kick your coffee habit? -xo Kayla

 

WEEKEND RECAP IN PICTURES

This weekend was homecoming at my university. I had an absolute blast taking time to celebrate the fact I made it to senior year!

Sadly, the weekend is over and it’s back to moody Monday. I hope everyone else had a fabulous weekend and hopefully we can all tackle the work week with at least a little style.
