Healthier Winter Skin On The Go

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. Winter is upon us, and our skin is SUFFERING! I live in an area that doesn’t even have a full on Winter season, and my skin has been going crazy, so I can’t even imagine those in the single digit temps!  As a blogger, when my skin is suffering – everyone knows it, so today I’m going to share my tips for healthier Winter skin on the go! That’s right – these 2 items are lifesavers and my trick for healthier skin. Let’s take a look at why I need them. First of all, it’s Winter, so my skin is dryer, flakier and needs extra TLC. The moisture is just sucked right out of them and without proper care, they look older and well… not very good in photos. Aside from that it’s tax season at work, so…

High Quality Hair Care with ApotheCARE Essentials™

This conversation is sponsored by ApotheCARE. All opinions are my own You know what gets me excited as a blogger? New hair care items. Even before I was a blogger, I got super excited about trying out new products on my hair. When I heard about ApotheCARE Essentials coming to CVS, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. ApotheCARE Essentials has a few different lines that focus on different hair care needs. Color treated hair or damaged hair? They have you covered.  For my hair, The Booster line from ApotheCARE Essentials is perfect. ApotheCARE Essentials The Booster builds weightless, thicker-looking volume and enhances natural movement. I have a lot of hair, but it’s fine and flat for the most part, which irritates me to no end. Why give me all this hair that does nothing and looks lifeless?  So if your hair is fine and/or flat – The Booster…

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…
