Alba Botanica is a skincare brand I’ve known about for quite some time but never really got the hang of using their products consistently. If my memory serves me well, I believe I purchased a facial cleanser a few years ago, but can’t recall how I felt about it since it’s been so long and haven’t come around to trying out any new products from Alba Botanica since then.
Based on some of the good reviews I’ve read, Alba Botanica seems to have a complete skincare line along with hair and body products that actually provide good results. I also like that for a drugstore “clean brand”, Alba Botanica is very affordable & accessible.
There’s nothing more relaxing to me than sipping on a cup of warm tea throughout the day especially during these upcoming chilly Fall/Winter nights that are soon approaching. Although I love to drink tea to relax, I drink tea primarily for regular digestion and weight control. Tea is my best kept secret to keep stomach bloating under control especially if I’ve been having greasy fried foods.

After being diagnosed in late 2014 with not only one but TWO autoimmune diseases, (Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis) I’ve taken a hard look at my lifestyle. An auto immune disease is when your immune system attacks itself and if systematic, can also affect other organs throughout the body.
This Summer I got caught up with a very bad “flare up” and decided to work on preventing another flare up for the rest of my life. With an autoimmune disease, flare ups are sporadic and quite common and also very painful. With Lupus, RA and other known immune disorders, flares can be triggered from anything, be it the environment (sun exposure, cold, etc.), emotional, or diet. Diet is by far the most predominant cause for my flare ups, second to emotion, (stress).
Nonetheless, this painful journey has led me to many realizations about the poisons that exist all around us in the foods we consume, our environment and the state of our emotional and mental health. These factors have a lot to do with how I manage any “flares” I may experience, especially if I don’t keep my diet and mental health in balance.

First, lets’ take a brief look at some of the generally known benefits of adding fish oil to your health regimen.
Burning Hell Notes
A very common question I always get from people is why I named my Blog “Hell Notes for Beauty”. I guess the term “Hell” throws some people off.
I remember the day I sat down and started brainstorming on a name for my blog. I wanted my blog to incorporate both the ancestors in one form or another and of course incorporate elements of beauty, whether it is hair, makeup, etc.
I’ve studied every imaginable aspect of Chinese culture such as Chinese medicine, cuisine, history and most notably for me Chinese Spirituality and the culture’s deep emphasis on honoring their ancestors.
Hence the name, “Hell Notes for Beauty” was born.
Una pregunta muy común que siempre obtengo de la gente es por qué nombré a mi blog “Hell Notes for Beauty”. Supongo que el término “infierno” arroja a algunas personas.
Recuerdo el día en que me senté y comencé una lluvia de ideas sobre un nombre para mi blog. Quería que mi blog incorporara tanto a los antepasados de una forma u otra y, por supuesto, incorporar elementos de belleza, ya sea pelo, maquillaje, etc.
He estudiado todos los aspectos imaginables de la cultura china, como la medicina china, la cocina, la historia y, sobre todo, la espiritualidad china y el profundo énfasis de la cultura en honrar a sus antepasados.
De ahí el nombre, “Hell Notes for Beauty” nació.
