How I’m Fighting Dry Skin

Happy Tuesday Loves~

Texas and winter don’t mix very well: it’s either early or really delayed. With winter finally upon us Texans, my skin has been getting crazy dry. I usually experience this when coming home from a trip, but the wind child is killer on my face and hands.

Now that today’s my first back to school, I will be facing the cold and nature every way more than I’ve been. Thankfully, these six products have been saving me from painfully dry skin.

December Instagrams

Happy Saturday Loves~

I know that I’m posting super late, but one thing led to another, and here we are. One of my goals for winter break was to try and take the time to up my Instagram game, and I think I’ve been improving.

To track my progress with editing, and my brand’s amount of quality, I’ve decided to share my IG feed each month!

My biggest issue was getting posts up on time, but I discovered Buffer. I promise you this app is a total game changer! Not only does it send me notifications to remind me to post, but it will let me schedule and preplan my captions and edits! Thanks to this useful app, I was able to manage my Instagram feed better.

Follow me @myauthenticnature to get updates on what’s going on in my daily life!

Even though the documentary has been out since October, I just started seeing trailer ads for it on YouTube. After watching Demi’s story, I needed to share it with y’all. I highly recommend you to watch her heartfelt documentary. Here’s why:  Continue reading

Happy New Years Loves~

I’m going to give 2018 everything I have, with little to no excuses. This past year wasn’t so bad, but it was a year of compromises. I compromised my creativity for my education, and I felt incomplete. I compromised my friendships and college experiences for meaningless work and unnecessary commitments. 2017 had it’s pros and cons, and I feel like I’ve managed, however, I want to thriveContinue reading

Also, I am currently working on my travel video for my Vegas trip, so that will be up once it’s finished!

How, without further adieu, here’s all you need to know about Little Red WolfContinue reading

Happy December Y’all!

Once again — long time no see. December is finally here, and that means my fall semester is coming to an end. I don’t know how many times I’ve apologized about being absent, and I honestly don’t know when I will stop.

Life has been crazy, and it’s been a constant and vicious cycle. But, I am hoping to get back into the groove of things soon. Here’s what I’ve got planned:

  • Vlogging:
    I think this will be the easiest way to just create content, and it will also help me capture the moments as a college student
  • Writing Shorts:
    Before blogging, I was really big on writing my own short stories and novellas; and recently, I’ve been getting an itch to write and read more. Again, this will help me create content when I’m just in a bloggers funk.
  • Filming:
    Aside from vlogging, I’ve also been craving the need to film Youtube videos again. Currently, I have some content that just needs to be edited, but overall I really want to film and editing something really nice.
  • Designing New Layout: 
    For the longest time ever, I really wanted to create a custom domain for My Authentic Nature, with an elevated look. As you can tell, from the list above, my blog is a place for me to be creative. Therefore, there isn’t just one “theme” or subject content. My Authentic Nature is my digital playground.

Overall, I just really want — and need — to be creative. I am just burnt out from the requirements of my degree and pre-requisites to get into graduate school. I am still figuring out a better posting-schedule, but once I get it finalized, I will let you know. It is likely that I will adjust my schedule based off my school schedule, so it will vary from time to time. Of course, I will keep you updated with everything!

With Love, Joslyn Pham
