Book, Song, Body

BOOK- This weeks book is The Book of Awesome. I have no idea how I originally heard about this book, but I bought a copy for my Kindle and read it a number of months ago. Someone had told my boss about this book and that she buys a copy for her staff as birthday gift. My boss decided to give us all copies for Christmas.

Originating as a blog, this books is a collection of things that are awesome and why they are awesome. What I love about this book is that it reminds you how great the little things are- such as bubble wrap or fixing electronics by smacking them. Things that really are awesome and make you happy or feel good but you don't think about or maybe even take for granted.

SONG- I had a co-worker ask me if I had heard Walk Off The Earth. She was asking because she had seen a video of theirs on youtube, which she thought was pretty cool, and thought I might have heard of them as they are from about 45 minutes from my hometown. I had actually heard of them in passing the day before (read about them on someone's Facebook status). I saw on Facebook via friend's status that Walk Off The Earth will be on Ellen! Here's Walk Off The Earth doing a cover of Somebody That I Used To Know.

BODY- Something I try to do every 4-6 weeks or so is steam my face. I know that sounds odd...but it's amazing for your skin. Sure, you can go to a steam room, if that's an option. Or you can get facials, as steaming is part of a facial, if you have the luxury. Or, you can do an at home steam. It's pretty simple.
  1. Put some hot water in a bowl
  2. Place your face above the bowl, where you are comfortable yet can feel the steam on your skin
  3. Place a towel or cloth over your head and bowl to keep the steam in
  4. Stay like this for about 10 minutes
That's it! Pretty simple and easy. The steam will open your pores, help you sweat the gunk out and clear your skin. Not only does it feel pretty good but it is great for your skin. Slather on some moisturizer and you're good to go! I think that this is one of the biggest secret and key to my clear skin.
