Combating Winter Skin Problems

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

My skin gets incredibly dry during the winter. I know that this is an issue that a lot of people deal with. My skin is dry all year round, so the extremely dry months are really hard on my skin. I have tried a lot of moisturizers in the past. Some of the issues I have experienced with moisturizers have been that they are too thick, sticky, or they don’t give me the moisture that I need.

That is why I have really enjoyed using the Olay Total Effects Whip! It is helping me combat my winter skin problems. I have been using it for about a month now and my skin is feeling more moisturized than it has felt during the winter months in years past.

Typically, my skin will get really dry on and around my nose, on my smile lines, and on my chin. Ironically, they are places where many people have oily skin issues! My skin will get dry and flaky, making it so my foundation looks terrible over the top! That is what I have experienced for years! But this year has been much different. [Read more…]

Facial Cleansing Wipes Reviews: Battle of the Brands

Ever wonder what the best facial cleansing wipes are? Do you find yourself searching online for reviews of different products and wish you could just find a friend who had tried a whole bunch of products that could compare them all of you? Well, you are in luck because I am going to be THAT friend for you! I am SO excited to announce a new series I am bringing you… Battle of the Brands! I will be coming once a month with a category and will be testing several brands of that product. Some of them you can look forward to seeing in the future include drugstore foundation, mascara, long wear lipstick, and concealer. To kick things off, I tested facial cleansing wipes!

So, how does it work? I came up with my own little scoring system to grade each of the facial cleansing wipes on more than me just saying, “This one was good” or “This one was no good”. I tested [Read more…]

What to Expect When Getting Permanent Makeup

I used to fill in my eyebrows every single day. I did it so many times, that I thought that I had gotten it down to the point where it didn’t take very long. Then one day I was trying to get out the door and I was just going to fill in my brows and put on some mascara before leaving the house because I didn’t have time to worry about anything else. Those few steps ended up taking way longer than they should have. That was when I finally decided to start saving to get permanent makeup done on my brows!

I’m FINALLY getting sleep!

When my 5 year old was a baby, my husband and I were diligent about the sleep program that we can chosen before she was born. She spent 11 days in the NICU and came home with her own little baby schedule that the hospital had created for her. There were definitely some hard nights but once we got her trained, she was an awesome sleeper. Flash forward to present day. My 9 month old has been a completely different experience! She has been a hard baby to train. It doesn’t help that we moved when she was almost 5 months old and have spent the last 4 months in limbo as we travel back and forth to go visit dad until we move again. I would get so discouraged when I would read articles that would claim that a 6 month old should be sleeping mostly through the night and my 6 month old was waking up every 2-3 hours! I was at my breaking point and I needed to find a better way.

Treat Your Eyes

If you have been a follower for a few years now, you may have remembered when I had an accident with my eyes. I had visited my family and I forgot my contact case. I used an old contact case and I got a severe eye infection. I spent many hours with the eye doctor for the following two months as we worked to get my eyes back to normal. It was an experience that really made me learn that I should ever take my eyes or my vision for granted.

Custom Willy Wonka Children’s Book

This post was sponsored by Wonderbly. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

We absolutely love Roald Dahl books! Several years ago, we bought a full set of his books and have been reading them one at a time. The very first book that we read was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Soon our obsession with all things Wonka began. That is why I was thrilled when I learned that I could get a custom Willy Wonka book for our family!

We loved reading this book! It was a total surprise to my daughter that it was a custom book. We started reading the book and then she saw her name! Then she saw her sister’s name! It was so fun to be able to turn each page to see each custom part of the story that was made just for us! [Read more…]

28 Day Challenge Results

This post is sponsored by Olay. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. #Olay28Day #ad

About a month ago, I took the Olay 28 Day Challenge. The challenge was to use their products for 28 days and see if I could notice any difference in my skin over that time, by incorporating a few new products and creating that healthy habit each day. My skin goes through phases of being pretty bad, but when I first started the challenge my skin wasn’t horrible. I didn’t have a lot of problems with breaking out, but my skin did feel very dry and it just looked tired!

Powerful Oil Blends

Over the last couple of years, I have really started to focus on treating my skin with more natural products than I ever have before. I have really enjoyed finding products that aren’t necessarily the most popular things you find on the beauty shelves, but are better for my body!
