Simplifying Your Life as a New Mom

There is nothing quite like the overwhelming feeling after having a baby. There is just so many things to buy, things to do, all while trying to do those things on very little sleep! I remember feeling very overwhelmed after Zoey was born. I just didn’t know how I was going to juggle the task of keeping my 5 year old happy, taking care of a newborn, and keeping my business running. It was all so much!

I quickly learned the importance of simplifying my life. If I could cut down on the amount of errands I needed to run or come up with better systems for getting household work and work for my job done, things could run a lot more smoothly.  [Read more…]

Baby Skincare Needs

The summer heatwave has officially hit us! It was like in the blink of an eye it went from rainy days to scorching temperatures! Hot temperatures can be really tricky with babies, especially when you have summer travel plans. We are getting ready to head to California later this month and I am thinking ahead for full days at theme parks, beach days, and hot weather. I can honestly say that creating sponsored content with a company hasn’t ever made as much as an impact as working with Baby Dove has. It has drastically changed my toddler’s skin and I am just so grateful!

Dove Baby Review

While it is important to plan our outfits, snacks, and entertainment for the trip, it’s just as important to think about our skin in a different environment. My toddler’s skin has always been really sensitive and we’ve battled issues with it for most of her life. It wasn’t until we started using products from Baby Dove and changed the type of diapers she was using that we have seen major improvements in her skin. [Read more…]

By now, you know how much I love Olay Cleansing Infusions! I also know that many of you have purchased it for yourself and are loving the results as well!

Olay Cleansing Infusions

I put Olay Cleansing Infusion body wash and face wash to the test to see if it really would make my skin glow. Olay introduced the world to what they like to call the Tilt Test. After you have been using Olay Cleansing Infusion, you can tilt your skin in the light and literally see your skin glow! I feel like when my skin is this radiant, I feel more radiant on the inside as well. [Read more…]

Pure Joy From Pampers Pure

When I became a mother for the first time, I was overwhelmed by the selection of diapers and wipes that were available. I had no idea what or how to choose. I had assumed that the biggest difference would be the performance of the diapers and wipes, but I was wrong! What I hadn’t realized is just how different the actual materials of diapers and wipes were. My oldest daughter seemed to be fine with each type of diapers and wipes that we used with her, but things have been totally different with my baby. She has very sensitive skin and I have had to be much more cautious about the types of products that I use with her.

Springtime Baby Skincare

Tracking Pixel

There isn’t a lot of focus on baby skincare, unless there is an obvious problem with their skin. I learned this the hard way when my baby’s skin was showing signs of being quite sensitive. She would get bumps on her skin from lotions, wipes, and body wash. It was so sad! Most of these things could have been easily ignored, which is why it is so important to pay attention to your baby’s skin. They aren’t able to tell us if something is wrong with their skin, so it is important to really pay attention to how their skin is reacting to any new product you are using. That is why I was thrilled to partner with Baby Dove on this sponsored post. We have been using their products and they are working wonders on my baby’s sensitive skin.
The changing of seasons can also bring a lot of change to a baby’s skin. The more time spent outside will bring a lot of new experiences for a baby, and that can bring new challenges for their skin as well. It is something that we, as parents, need to be aware of.

Thankfully, we have found that Baby Dove products work wonders on my baby’s sensitive skin! Baby Dove cleansers and lotions are made with 100% skin-natural nutrients for delicate baby skin. This has definitely been apparent as we have used Baby Dove products. [Read more…]

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…]
