30 Day Photo Challenge: June

School is over, summer is here, and my blog lies ever dormant.

My creative juices have all but dried up, and no matter what I do, I can never seem to come up with a good topic to write about. I have started over 45 posts since my last update, but have not published a single one. Most of them are only a few sentences long, and just fleeting ideas that fizzled out before I could make and sense of them.

So, in an effort to get my creative mojo going again, I decided to start a 30 day Photography Challenge, which you are all more than welcome to join in on!

Each month I will reveal a list of daily prompts. All you have to do is use any camera you have (iPhone, Smartphone, Digital, DSLR, Polaroid…seriously anything that captures photos) and use the daily theme as inspiration. For example, if the theme is "peace", just take a photo of something that represents peace to you. It could be someone sleeping, a serene photo of a field, a favorite long as it's represents the theme!

If you would like to share photos, feel free to post a link to them on the wall of my blog page, tag @emmagyne or #JASHPhotoChallenge on Instrgram, share them on your blog, anything!

That's it! There's no obligation to take a photo every day, or even to share it (though I would love to see your photos). The goal of this is to just take a few moments each day to be creative, work out the right side of your brain, and have FUN!

So are you ready for a fun month of daily creativity?

Here's the list for June, so start thinking of that day one photo, and get ready to post on Saturday!

Love and Lightning Bugs,

Take Back Your Confidence, with Alpha Hydrox

Every woman, no matter her age, has had moments where she's bit self-conscious about her skin. The wrinkles, the fine lines, the breakouts, etc. I know that the eczema on my face has driven me mad over the years, and has caused quite a lot of embarrassment to me. But now, I've found something to boost my confidence! Thanks to the lovely ladies at the Pitch List, I was able to try out an amazing skin care product, called Alpha Hydrox. I received the Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion 10% Glycolic AHA Anti-Wrinkle for dry skin.

Alpha Hydrox products use advanced natural exfoliants, that gently and gradually “peel away” dead surface skin cells, allowing fresh, new cells to emerge. The use of these exfoliants help to prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and creases. Using the products will even skin's tone and unclog pores, helping to banish acne and problem-prone skin.

The cream itself is very light, and has a nice scent, unlike other creams and serums I have used in the past. It doesn't take much to do the job, and there is no residue left on the skin. I used the Enhanced Cream everyday for a couple of weeks, and I was blown away by the results! Not only do my pores look smaller, and the little lines in the corner of my eye are disappearing, but the eczema on my forehead and temples is gone! I feel confident enough to actually show off my skin now!

The best part about the cream that gave me back my self-confidence and gave me glowing skin? The price! The Enhanced Cream was only $10.99! Now, where else can you find an amazing skin products for less than that?

Don't forget to give Alpha Hydrox Skin Care a like on Facebook, so you can get tips, and the latest offers as they become available!
