Mommy Products: nügg Hydrating Face Mask

I am always on the hunt for beauty products that are NO FUSS and actually work.   So I subscribed to birchbox this year thinking that I would have no time to get out of the house and find new products as a new mom.

Best thing I could have done!

So honestly it took me about 2 months to remember that I had the products but the other night bedtime allowed me to catch a few minutes to myself!

I used the nügg Hydrating Face Mask.   They come in these small to go packets and you could potentially get 2 uses out of them.  I used the whole thing on my face assuming that it needed all the help it could get.

Now 2 days later I noticed that my skin looks amazing!!  Now If I could just find the time to do this once a week!!  Always a challenge but I am up for task…I think my skin will thank me!

Now I have a website, where I write about parenting and children—the tragedy of sibling rivalry as much as the comedy of a six year old’s staged wedding. Is this a change in subject matter tantamount to a fall from…

Answer by Oliver Emberton on Quora.

There are just two reasons why you haven’t done the stuff that you ‘want’ to do.

  1. You can’t because of something external
  2. You won’t because of something internal

Here’s the thing: nearly everyone who succeeds, will always assume number #2. By default, the reason they have failed is themselves. It is, without fail, their own fault. Always.

If this sounds like willful bunk, consider the flip side: those who fail always assume it’s not their fault. With that attitude, your ego is forever letting itself off the hook. You can’t learn from your experiences, except maybe that you shouldn’t have even tried, because — well — that big bad world was just super-mean to you again.

Try listening to a lot of normal conversation: it’s just ego repair.
