Next New "It" Product? Essences + My Fave Toner!

It hasn't been talked about much (at least as far as I know), but I do believe that it will become quite the talk of the "skincare town" by the end of the year.
I actually didn't even know of essences until about the end of last year when I walked into Sephora looking for a toner I had just ran out of. However, I couldn't find it so I decided to ask one of the beauty advisors at the store. She asked me why I was looking for a toner, to which I responded that it helps assure that all of my makeup is off at the end of the day. Then, she wanted to know what kind of skin type I had. At that time, I was dealing with a lot of dry skin issues and my makeup would constantly look dry and "cracked" in areas. She explained to me that toners have alcohol as one of the main ingredients and that the last thing I needed was alcohol on my dry skin. Therefore, she recommended that I try an essence. She recommended the Boscia Cool Blue Hydration Essence in particular because it helps with redness and calming that down, which was another skin issue of mine.

Love So Deep

It's probably the fact that the marketing team and society has made it feel like it is the most luxurious and classy product line/brand ever, but I am absolutely hooked! Their marketing emails are always so amazing and definitely inspire me to go on the site and make a purchase. Therefore, please don't be alarmed by the proportion of Chanel products vs anything else in this post where I simply want to share the items I am loving lately.
Actually, "loving for a really really long time" would be more accurate. 
There's no rhyme or reason to the order of products I mention below or even the type of products I speak of. I have so many items that I am loving, but these are just a random few that I picked from my possessions. I think that throughout the weeks I will go through more and more items that I would like to share.

Life Lately

I have genuinely missed blogging!
So then why haven't I blogged?
I'm sure you can already guess my answer, but I've just been busy. The worries of every day life has gotten the best of me. On top of that, I was feeling a bit uninspired, to be honest. 
Why? Well, for a few reasons:
1. Tired, so I just did not have the energy to work something up. 
2. Life got a bit busy so I had to reprioritize a bit in order to stay somewhat sane. 
3. I just wasn't feeling my blog theme/template. For some reason, I wanted something new and fresh, which brings me to my next point...
I've redone my blog a bit, YAY!
What do we think? 
I personally love the cleaner, more simple look. I'd love to hear what you think!

Anyway, back to the point of writing this blog post...
I wanted to start up blogging again. I've been able to start 2016 with a more disciplined schedule that allows me to have some more time to do something other than go to work, school, and do homework. Therefore, I thought I'd put in some time creating some content for you to read/view. 

To begin, I thought I'd share some of my favorite moments from 2016 so far.
