Hey there bloomers! I’ve decided to launch a Patreon membership to allow readers to support the content that they know & love. This allows members who sign up to donate as little as $1 a month that will contribute to the writing, graphic making, vlogs, projects, reviews, and overall content. Of these donations, I will be forwarding a third of all proceeds to causes & organizations that reflect the values & esteem of StayBlooming.com. Not only does this patronage support the fruitfulness and potential of this blog but it also supports my work as the sole editor. Thank you so much for following and reading!
In light of recent events involving our 45th president acting out in completely unpresidential ways… I wanted to share this. It’s a list of pledges he made and promised to implement 100 days into his presidency. Bullsh*t. It’s quite brutal to see how he’s acted completely opposite towards all of these supposed promises. Do what you will with it but I do suggest sharing. Stay aware bloomers.
Hey bloomers! I had the pleasure of receiving complimentary organic hand-crafted samples from this awesome all-natural shop Moodiez. They operate through their Etsy shop and Instagram which makes browsing & purchasing rather easy if you’re an existing user. Plus taking all major credit card and/or PayPal.
Top left and clockwise: pumpkin lip scrub (1), sparkling rose dead sea scrub (2), liberation bath soak (3), and detox clay mask (4). Below is my personal review of the above items. I reviewed them in the order that I tried them:
- Pumpkin lip scrub is extremely hydrating. It’s low-key tasty but great to soften lips. I could still feel it there after washing off. I also have some leftovers from sampling.
- Rose & vanilla detox clay mask is super easy to use. It literally only needs a tiny bit water if using water. Plus has a relaxing smell. I didn’t notice any effects right away.
- Sparkling rose dead sea scrub is amazing. I love the glimmer it leaves and my skin was soft to touch after the shower and the next day. It smells rosy and can feel a bit oily but nonetheless moisturizing.
- Liberation bath soak was relaxing. I opted to put in the bag that avoids mess so clean-up was easy. I would love to try it again but with the contents loose in my bath.
Overall, I’m really happy that I was able to try these products. I’m a very low maintenance woman when it comes to my beauty and aesthetics but given that these products are all natural and left me feeling like I was walking on clouds… I would totally buy for myself or as gifts! You should check out the variety of goods that they hav. Ranging from floral pearl highlighters for the make-up girl to an extensive bunch of different bath soaks made for self-care and relaxation.

“You were three years of water.” How deeply this resonates with me. It comes from bittersweet and intimate memories that I go over a lot mentally. I’m certain that anyone who reads those six simple words has their own encounter of a three year affair or event in their life. It doesn’t even matter.
This very short and sweet poem is from Nejma by Nayyirah Waheed. I truly admire her work and have written on it before. Like many of her other to the point poems, this one can have a very versatile meaning yet all the while keeping its wisdom. This is my perception I’m sharing:
I’d like to take a moment and use some imagery for the purpose of this post. Clear your mind of everything to imagine a green valley. Flourishing and full of life, nature has it that a stream flows through. Flourishing, full of life, and now fruitful for life to flourish… that stream becomes a river. It now bears a different weight and is cutting deeper within the valley. The wider the cut for more water to flow, the more life that comes but it’s not the same valley. It’s characteristics and needs are much different than when it started.
In life there are things that will happen and people you will meet, that are those soft waters. They may not cause a dent right away and it might not be negative at all but it will erode away some things. That’s only natural. It’s up to you as an individual to always be true to yourself and understand the beauty in an ever changing life.
