Naturally Beautiful: 3 Ways to Cherish Your Natural Beauty Routine | A Rose in Bloom
We all have things that just make us feel good. I'll be honest - I have only recently really cared about beauty products. I've always thought makeup was for fun, but I was just as comfortable going out in my own skin. Until I got my first grey hair. Then I began to over criticize, hyper analyze, and over think my appearance. The carefree girl who would wear her best dress and heels with a clean, free face died. But now, I want that girl back. At the same time however, I have learned that I really enjoy having a natural beauty routine. A routine that makes me cherish being a woman and enjoy taking care of myself. Actually, what I've learned is that, when I take the time for it, the beautifying experience is something I really love.


 Let me live in a dreamworld filled with experiences that makes us feel loved, that make us feel beautiful. If we are going to live in the world, let's make it a heaven. Here are some ways to transform a daily routine into your own little prayer filled dream.

Create a special time to love yourself and beautify that atmosphere. For me, this time is right when I wake up and right before bed. The day's awakening is so much better when you know you are about to receive a wellness gift. Likewise, activities such as moisturizing are also a wonderful way to unwind as I slip under the covers. A good scent will also help you feel clearer and peaceful, so slather up in your favorite oils (see below) and light some incense.

Choose tools you love. I have two beautiful hair combs (one of which is great for scalp massages) that I use regularly as well as a wooden body brush for dry brushing. I find that when I love the tools, I am more likely to use them. For this reason, I am also consider painting designs on my dry brush.

Use oils - for everything. It feels heavenly because it is heavenly. Once a week I douse my hair in coconut oil and relish that sweet scent. It fills my nostrils with sweetness and my heart has instantly left for a tropic vacation. But it doesn't stop there. No, I also use oils to remove makeup (when I choose to wear it), moisturize my hands and legs, and tone down my frizzy hair. The best part about oils is they are multi purpose - "hair" oils can be used on your nails or to massage your sore legs. In fact, most oils can be used on the skin or hair.
How do you make your beauty rituals unique?

Stay beautiful,

XOXO Liz

  1. Liz, these are such beautiful photos! I'm all about coconut oil for the hair, though I'm not quite sure where I stand with regards to its smell. I've not grown accustomed to it yet, honestly, but I can't deny its benefits!

    1. I like the smell, but I can understand why others would not. Jojoba oil also works well for my hair if you want to try something different!

  2. I know how you feel about finding your first grey hair, I was at work and I just couldn't stop staring at it, was close to tears.
    Since I found it I have been very concious about ageing even though I'm only 22, one thing I always do is moisturise, wouldn't say I have a schedule as such.

    1. Moisturizing and sunscreen are absolutely the most important aspects of skin care so keep it up! Did you start dying your hair or are you cool with a few silver strands popping up here and there?

  3. I have an argan oil that I really need to use on my hair more to make it shinier and less frizzy! I just find it so messy, so I hardly use it. I found my first grey hair in college and it was a bit alarming! I actually found a grey hair today and was not happy about it! :/

    1. Ugh... I know that feel. This is terrible but... I actually let my brother pull out a few grays that were very visible. I know you are not supposed to do that, but I don't have time to get it colored right now! And I don't want to for like, 5 hairs. Regarding frizz though, if you have access to Trader Joe's, maybe try a few drops of their jojoba oil. Rub it in your palms and run your hands through WET hair, avoiding your scalp (don't want it to get greasy). It helps me a lot, so maybe it will help you!

    1. I use both! I like coconut for a deep condition... put it in, put my hair in a bun for a few hours and then wash/condition as usual. I like to use jojoba oil on my face and a few drops in wet hair to slick down frizzies and have a leave in conditioner. Maybe I need a hair care post soon. Hah.

  5. I definitely believe in creating a space for yourself. I'm remodeling my house and I changed my bathroom and added a makeup room to support my lifestyle. It's making a world of difference. This post was so beautiful! I love your layout Liz.

    1. Nice! I would love to have a for real designated makeup space. Right now, I use the bathroom mirror, but I would love real organization!
