Happy Monday!

If there is ever a day in May Cause Miracles that I miss its today. Its Monday and the first day during our course that we have to wake up a little bit earlier and get on that meditation pillow. Thats why for this round, I picked starting on a holiday weekend. You get a little extra cushion to get on that cushion...haha! 

Yesterday we were observers witnessing our fears and many of you shared your fears openly with us in the group. I feel very grateful to each of you because I know your impact. Keep sharing, stay open and engaged. 

Today we focus on opening up, we are willing to change. We are willing to see things differently, willing to see love. When we become willing to change, we surrender to a greater perception, a loving perception. Be willing to see your fears differently. Its easy to get irritated with our ego, viewing it like the enemy. Its not the enemy, your ego is doing what it does best and its been doing a great job for a long time.

At the beginning of my spiritual journey I hit a point where I felt really annoyed with my ego, in fact I hated it. After some soul searching I realized that my ego hating my ego was a self love problem and it wasn't everyone else and every past situation I couldn't control keeping me stuck but it was me. I had a self love problem and whether it was a family member, a life event, or my ego that I was blaming, blaming wasn't solving my problem. I dropped the blame game and realized that MY problems were MY accountability and so was MY happiness. 

Helping others has been the gateway to freeing my own fears. These days I view my ego for exactly what it is and when it comes up send it some love and let it go. I have learned the art of acceptance and accountability and I get the opportunity each day to practice this practice. I choose to see my fears differently because I choose to see love. That choice is a subtle shift we call a miracle. 

I live a miracle mindset life but that doesn't mean I no longer struggle or have low (very low) moments, because trust me I do. I deal with my shit much different now than I did 3-4 years ago - when I feel like I am drowning I turn to my tools, this book, music, my breathe, my ING, my guides, etc...

May Cause Miracles was the map that put it all together for me and gave me structure that offered a clear path to the happiness and love I craved desperately. It all starts with a little awareness and a desire for something better. 

Stay open, stay willing, stay thirsty for clarity and freedom. Don't let a difficult morning, bad traffic, or a sleepless night be the reason you skip a day. You owe this to yourself and the benefits are too sweet.

Be sure to set your alarms throughout the day, check into the group periodically, set todays photo as your background on your phone/computer, spread the good vibes and share on social media! WE got this! We are willing to see this differently, we are willing to see love.

OLE HENRIKSEN Power Bright Tutorial/Review - SnapChat Style | Influenster

One of the many joys of blogging is testing out NEW products. What makes it even better is sharing the seriously good ones with all of you. 

Skin care should be a priority to everyone. With our skin being our largest organ, it needs all the TLC, love, light, and attention it can get. Testing out products to find ones that work for you and your skins specific needs can be pricey and overwhelming. Thats where honest authentic bloggers (like me) swoop in and make life easy! 

I'll make this super simple. The Ole Henriksen Power Bright 3 step skin kit is one of the best products I have ever used. My first thought after using it was that this is the closest thing to a professional facial at home you can get. After doing a bit of research I learned that it actually takes inspiration from Ole Henriksen’s POWER Peel - the most-requested treatment at his spa. 

Although getting a facial is something I will still opt for every once in a while, they are expensive and with me being a total hermit, I prefer to stay home!

Without more of my rambles, I hope you enjoy my experience SnapChat style! Make sure to check out future snaps by clicking the direct link to follow me >>>> @xomagnoliarose

OLE HENRIKSEN POWER BRIGHT STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL & REVIEW!

The kit contains 6 little pods of the following products....

-Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask
-Truth 25% Vitamin C Concentrate
-Pure Truth Melting Cleanser

-2 Complexion sponges have been added to make life easy! 

Step 1: Apply the Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask to clean, damp skin. Gently massage in a circular motion for 30 seconds, then let it sit for 5-10 minutes. 

This really yummy face mask is enriched with sugar, honey, and pomegranate seed powder. It smells delicious and your skin feels AND looks absolutely amazing after. This first step was honestly my very favorite! A good exfoliant combined in a mask is super bad ass!

It deliciously polishes away dull skin and gives your skin a super clean, smooth, and radiant complexion. 

Wash this baby off and move on to step 2. 

Step 2: Apply the Truth 25% Vitamin C Concentrate. Let this one sit for 2-3 minutes, LEAVE IT ON and apply step 3. 

This one is creamy & soft but has a very decent kick to it! Its a little sassy but thats how you know its working its magic! 

Step 3: Apply the Pure Truth Melting Cleanser on top of Vitamin C Concentrate.

These two work as a team.

And again the sassy warm tingling feeling means its doing its job and its doing it well. 

Your pores kinda feel like they are dancing around, it can get a wee bit itchy at times but finding ways to entertain yourself helps "fight the burn". 

The Melting Cleanser nourishes your skin with vitamin C, cherry seed, and rose hip seed oils. Super fabulous!

Let this treatment chillax on your face for 10-15 min.

Side note...it doesnt have honey in it, its just the vibe it had and the SnapChat stickers were too much fun! 

Wash off in circular motions using your super rad facial sponge! 

After you have given your skin the TLC it deserves and a solid rinse, its time to moisturize!

Influenster threw in the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation moisturizer. Its good but its not my favorite. 

I prefer to use Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate with Lush Cosmetics Cosmetic Lad over top. The two work better for me. 

BUT! For the sake of giving the products a solid test I have used this moisturizer for the last few weeks. 

Although its great for dry skin, it feels too thin to me and the combo I currently have works perfect for my skins specific needs! 

For this final step, use whatever moisturizer works for you and your skin care needs. 


FINAL THOUGHTS! 

I would DEFINITELY recommend this treatment. It worked wonders for my skin and I have noticed a huge difference in how smooth it feels along with how bright, radiant, and happy it looks.
