100 Happy Days of Iz

Jesus told this simple story, but they had no idea what he was talking about. So he tried again. “I’ll be explicit, then. I am the Gate for the sheep. All those others are up to no good—sheep stealers, every one of them. But the sheep didn’t listen to them. I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. (John 10:6-10 MSG)

Yesterday I joined the #100HappyDays challenge. It's been going on for a while now, and I'm joining the band wagon. Yippee! I think it's a great idea. We have so much to be #grateful for and #happyabout. Let's start counting our #blessings You can visit for more details. 

These two fellas here are Sherlock (the Basset Hound) and Bingo (the Aspin, as in Asong Pinoy!) aren't they adorable? 

Can you be happy for 100 days in a row? :)

How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes


I deep cleaned my makeup brushes last night. :) I used warm water with organic clarifying shampoo from Human Heart Nature (which I also use for my hair. :) 

As you daily use your brushes bits of makeup, dirt, oil and bacteria can get trapped in the bristles. This can lead to pesky breakouts, so keeping your brushes clean is a must. It's really easy to do. First use a daily brush cleaner and spritz it on the brushes after each use. I use Human Heart Nature's All Natural Spray Sanitizer (Citrus Burst). It's not just a brush cleaner. You can use it as a disinfectant on about any surface, even your hands. It's organic. It's main ingredient is ethyl alcohol derived from sugar canes. It's triclosan free. It has aloe vera extract so it doesn't dry out your hands or your bristles. Plus the citrus scent is invigorating. You might think I'm being paid to make these testimonies but I'm not. That's how much I love their product. :)

It is adviced to deep clean makeup brushes once a week. I use a shallow bowl with warm water and a clarifying shampoo from Human Heart Nature. Or you can also use a mild baby shampoo. Just swirl the brushes around the water with the shampoo, then rinse with clean warm water. It usually takes my brushes to dry overnight. Do not blow dry. ( I tried that once when I was so impatient, my blusher became so puffy!) using brush guards are optional.

So, when was the last time you washed your brushes? :)
