Since I started dealing with celiacs disease I have tried almost everything in order to get my skin to get back to its previous state, within some of the products I have used Retinoids have been some of them. My experience with retinoids has not been the best (Retinoid creams usually cause contact allergies on my face) and when I realized that Tiffany and the @drunkelephant team had developed a retinoid I was curious to try it and even a little scared to say the truth because I know it can be a strong formulation but excited all at the same time. #apassioni has been a true game changer for me as it really digs in deep in order to clear my skin up. I also like that it doesn't irritate my skin, since I started using it in december I can see the difference in my face, it feels tighter and smoother.
Time is a funny thing⌚️You can either sit and feel like your time is being wasted by ‘waiting’ for things. Or you can see that waiting time as an opportunity.
During the waiting time yesterday at the airport I squeezed in this photo and spent time with my daughter and the family chasing her and making her laugh hysterically. Time definitely not wasted!

Do you know what time it is?
It’s Product Review time!
I was blessed to have Drunk Elephant send me a PR package (just in time for my trip to Florida) and included was the Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense with SPF 30. I had to take this with me as it was a perfect opportunity to see how well it worked!
REVIEW: 👃🏼Smell: I love the smell of Drunk Elephant products, they have a clean and fresh scent 🤚🏼Texture: Creamy and not as heavy has some other sunscreens I have used. This one definitely feels lighter and blends easier
👌🏼 Effectiveness: We spent 2 full days in the Spring Florida Sun at Disney and I did not come back burnt! I do have a bit of a tan though. I was a little nervous at first with it only being SPF 30 that I would be badly burned but I was so happy I brought it along with me. I did get a little sunburn on my nose because I didn’t apply enough (if any) there. I will continue to use this sunscreen to see if it protects my skin from sun damage. I’ve noticed in the last year sun damage to my skin has increased and now I’m making sure I don’t skip this step in my routine!
Have you tried this sunscreen? If not, what are you currently using?
If you aren’t using any, shame on you! Protect your skin, and keep it youthful! It’s the biggest favor you can do for your skin! #drunkinlove#drunkelephant#desays#capitolawatches#watch#watchesforwomen#sunscreen#beauty#fashionaccessories#spf#spf30#loveskincare#skincareproducts#skincareroutines#skincarecommunity#skinlove#mervatglow#bestskincare#antiaging#cosmetic
"I'll tell you what Freedom is to me. No fear." Nina Simone. // when i saw this performance for the first time, i wrote a poem on this song, on this dance, on Nina Simone, on the power of women who tell the 'goddamn truth'. that same poem is now at the beginning of my bachelor thesis because that is where the searching for MY truth started. to see some of the symbols i have felt from the song/performance being reflected also in Beyonce's Homecoming just proves how complex, powerful and deep af art truly is and how telling our truth connects us on a level which is beyond everything we could ever dream of. it is poetry... it is beyond this world. and just for the record.. Homecoming is and will be the baddest behind the scenes documentary i have ever seen. p.s. happy 3rd birthday to Lemonade, the album which changed everything forever. #homecoming#beyonce#yonce#ninasimone#lilacwine#drunkinlove#ballet#beychella#coachella#lemonade#women#mysad#myworld#instapoet#poetry#writingcommunity#poet#instapoetry#magic#bittersweet#freedom#lemonade#0423
