MyChelle Haul and Product Review

Hey guys! So today I have a big ol' review video for ya. I have used MyChelle products in the past but I kinda went a bit crazy a couple months ago.

Just real quick, this post is not sponored or anything, I just wanted to share my experience with you. :)

The only thing I usually buy a bunch of at a time is plants and groceries so getting so many new products at once was pretty crazy for me. Kind of overwhelming actually. It took me a bit to get to all the products because I'm used to savoring whatever new thing i get; taking the time to use each product for awhile and seeing how it works.

Anyway since I was spoiled a couple months ago I now have a pretty good experience of all of these products so I think my review is pretty complete. Well as complete as I ever am. I mean I do get distracted talking about why some scrubs are bad for your face, and how other products from other brands work, but I think that if you have been looking for natural skincare, a new brand, or have been interested in MyChelle then you will probably find this video helpful. I know I would have, i mean if I wasn't the one that made it and had the experience already... Any-hoodles, I will have another video up Saturday that is an update on some of my house plants. Once of my cactuses is blooming!!!!! And it is so pretty!

If you would like to go directly to youtube click THIS LINK. Otherwise go ahead and watch it below.


I think that the sweet treats is a great deal because the lip balm stuff is $12 on its own so your basically getting the scrub for like $3 which is awesome. Also When you get the lip collection your basically getting one lip product and the bag for free, and the bag is pretty nice too. It can fit all of the stuff in the video except for the cucumber spray. The shining stars is all small sizes of the products so I'm not sure if thats as good of a deal but its definitely nice to be able to try all the products before you buy the larger sizes.
They have a bunch of other skincare products and the cleansers are pretty much all affordable for most any budget which is great! I love it when companies have a good range of easily affordable products and ones for a higher budget. Which is also cool, because you can save money on some things, and spend a bit more on something that you could really benefit from, like a skin cream or serum thats going to be working for you for hours instead of like some crazy expensive cleanser that your going to use for a couple of minutes.

I think I love the shining stars duo and the tropical mask the best out of everything because they make my skin feel and look the best I think. Anyway I'm going to enjoy my tea, but if you would like to see any of the products I reviewed I have them all linked below. Have a great week!

What to do when your kefir grains don't work right and wont grow

If you've been having problems with your kefir grains, like they are getting crusty, or they wont grow, or your milk is turning sour before it turns into kefir, then you will want to watch the video below. I made this video to specifically address problems that you might be having with kefir grains.

 Making kefir can be so easy and rewarding but making it every day is a lot of commitment so after research and practice I now can get my kefir grains to actually grow during the winter when I don't really use kefir that much. It's pretty darn simple to do, but I have a ton of other tips so if you want to know all my ticks then please do watch the video below or by clicking This Link Here.

How I water my succulents and cacti.

So this week I have two posts for you because I forgot to post my video from last week on here so I have two of them for you! One is this one and the other is a kefir grain video where I talk all about how to have success with kefir grains, how to keep them alive, and even how to get them to grow when your not making kefir. Anyhoodles todays post is how I water my succulents and cacti.

I water my succulents according to their individual preference. Some I water twice a week, some once, and the rest every two to three weeks. I fertilize them with an organic fertilizer every month except for during the winter. Some need fertilizer during the winter, it just depends on their growing season so be sure to check yours especially if you are wanting it to grow and bloom. It's pretty simple and easy to do but I do have a video for you that includes some new air plants that I just had to show you.

How I water all of my house plants

I have gotten a few questions about how I water all of my house plants so i decided to make a video about it. Now, this video is almost 30 minutes long, but it only takes me like 15 minutes at the most to water all of my plants. Anyway if you are interested in seeing how I water my plants watch the video below or click this link HERE to watch it. 


I have some plants that I watch for the water to drain fast, like for my succulents, and others I want to see the water drain slower. For my plants that need more water I give them more especially if the soil is pretty dry, and I water it until the water soaks down slower. Then I mist all my plants that need misted, and I run water over my orchids to water them. So I put them in the sink and run the water so that it drains out of course and helps to wash away mineral build up. My air plants get a mix of soaking and misting during the week.
My succulents that need more water like my sting of pearls usually get watered every week with my other plants and then also when I water all of my other succulents and cacti. My African violets get fertilized every week, but my venus fly trap on the other hand never gets any fertilizer except for bugs every few weeks in one of its traps.

My routine is pretty simple and takes very little time out of my week. Before I water my plants I go through them all and clean them up, dust around them and then clean the floors. (I usually do this on one of my floor cleaning days.) After that I water all of my plants that need a drink. Then a couple times a week I check on my water loving plants and water any that need it and mist all the plants that like extra humidity. I live in a dry climate so thats why they need a little extra care but that takes less than five minutes.

Repotting and feeding my house plants

Hey! Today I'm showing you a video of us repotting some plants that need some care and some extra compost and how I feed all my house plants excluding the sad, sad, poor little orchid and my succulents which I have yet to get fertilizer for since they don't usually need it (depending on the type) and also because no where in my town has it right now. Anyhoodles, I hope you enjoy it!

All the houseplants

I have quite a few house plants. I mean, I don't have near as many as I want, but I also have quite a few. Heck, this video is about thirty minutes long so obviously I have an obsession.

My mom and I were just talking about how if you were to have a hoarding problem then plants would be the best because its not really hoarding because they don't make things gross, and they don't really ruin your social life and when people come over to your house they think its awesome.
So, plants are definitely the best thing to have a lot of if your going to have way to many of something.

Anyway, here is my probably way to long video of my plants. Oh also the day after I filmed this I got more plants so thats the reason for this being my February 2018 tour because I bet I will do updates. Also, I actually enjoyed watching this video myself which is unusual so if you love houseplants then you will probably like this one.
