Easy DIY Turmeric Face Mask

I've got a super easy DIY face mask for you guys today! DIY turmeric masks have been a major trend on social media and beauty sites lately, and with  good reason - they're so good for your skin! There are several reasons why Turmeric Face Masks can help you get your glow on. The curcumin in this brightly-colored spice has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, thus the turmeric benefits for skin can include detoxifying, anti-aging, calming, and healing. In other words; it can help clear congestion, helps to heal blemishes and reduce scars, can boost collagen, and prevents damage from free radicals.

I've mixed turmeric with coconut oil for my DIY mask, but you can use other ingredients for different skin needs. For example, a dairy yogurt containing lactic acid can boost the anti-aging and skin brightening properties, while a honey turmeric mask would be best for fighting bacteria and blemishes.

Music Monday: "Wings" by Birdy as Featured on Winter's Tale Trailer


Like most of my favorite songs, I first heard "Wings" by Birdy on film. When I saw the theatrical trailer to the new romantic movie Winter's Tale, all I could think was which song is that and who on earth sings it? Upon sifting through her debut album, I realized I'd already heard one of Birdy's songs. Her cover of Bon Iver's "Skinny Love" (featured on her debut album Birdy) is equally beautiful and moving, though I think her original song "Wings" is still my favorite. Check it out below, and to hear more, you can listen to a fabulous Birdy compilation here.



The talented young British singer, song writer, and pianist (real name: Jasmine van den Bogaerde) has a new album out called Fire Within, which debuted in the fall of 2013. Her live appearances and press tour are in full swing, having just performed on the Today show. If you appreciate singers who can actually sing as opposed to performers who show a lot of skin and act like morons, I'm pretty sure you'll absolutely love Birdy!
