Morning & Night Shower Routines with Aveeno

This conversation was sponsored by iHerb. Affiliate Links are used in this post. I’m a busy mom, and while I adore my son – sometimes I need a little time to myself. Every mom knows that the only way to really do that is to take a shower. Even then, you might get someone yelling through the door to ask a question, but overall – that’s the best way to get 15-30 minutes of time to yourself. While that’s not entirely the topic of this post, it’s one of the reasons I look forward to taking both a morning and nightly shower. My shower caddy is packed with goodies. Shower gels, shampoos and conditioners,  skin care odds and ends – but we’re going to take a look at my favorite morning and night shower routine. Most of the Aveeno items packed into my shower caddy are from iHerb!  My newest…

What Happened When I Took The Olay 28 Day Challenge

Thank you to Olay for sponsoring this post. All opinions and text are my own. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you know I ditched my normal skin care routine and took part in the Olay 28 Day Challenge! I am almost at the end of the challenge, so I wanted to give you all the details. I turned 35 earlier this year and I’ve definitely been noticing some “problem areas” when it comes to my skin. A little drooping, some extra lines and a whole lot of puffiness. I’ve actually been avoiding selfies because I’m not happy with how my skin looks. When Olay reached out to invite me to take part in the Olay 28 Day Challenge, I said “YES PLEASE!” What is the Olay 28 Day Challenge? Basically, it’s a quick and easy skin care regimen. I do my normal morning cleansing and then added…

A Season & A Reason To Give

This conversation is sponsored by Mirum. All opinions are my own Can you believe it’s almost December already? We’re gearing up for the holidays and getting our thoughts together on items that local shelters might be in need of. We already had clothing and coats to bring them, but my son thought of something cute to bring to some of the children while we were at Sam’s Club. We were getting some basics when he said he thought that giving the children Suave Kids with Star Wars and Frozen on them would bring a smile to their faces! He was so excited about his idea, that we made a bee line straight to the Hair Care section and picked up a couple bottles. He said the parents needed something as well, so we also picked up some Suave Avocado + Olive Oil Shampoo & Conditioners. Since we already use the…

My Hormonal Breakout Rescue Kit featuring Zapzyt

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own. When I was 13, I couldn’t wait to be a “real adult” because by then, I wouldn’t have to deal with acne. I don’t know why I thought that way, but I did.  Here I am at 35, pretending to be a “real adult” and I still have acne. Once I hit about 25 I figured “Well, it’s still here so deal with it the best you can” and over time I tweaked my routine so that I could hide the acne more than anything, especially around my monthly cycle. Now I have my ultimate hormonal breakout rescue kit, and I’m going to share it with you. About 6 months ago I introduced you to Zapzyt on my blog. Zapzyt is a line that isn’t meant to replace your skincare, but rather to work in conjunction WITH…

PMD Beauty After 30 Days

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own 30 days ago I started a bit of a skincare challenge with the PMD Beauty  Personal MicroDerm device.  Now it’s been 30 days, so we’re going to look at my results! Just for a quick overview, in case you missed the initial post,  I recently partnered with PMD Beauty to try out their Personal MicroDerm device! Now I can take care of my skin on a professional level in the comfort of my home AND on my own time. Microdermabrasion removes dead, dull cells from the surface of the skin and over time it can diminish appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, blemishes & dark spots.   Once this barrier of dead and dull skin cells are removed, skin care products can penetrate 20X deeper which maximizes the benefits of skin care. Since we’re removing a layer of dead and dull…
