Drugstore Favorites I Keep Going Back For

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. Let’s be real, sometimes the flashy packaging and pretty additions (gold flakes anyone?) to high end skin care brands pull us in and dazzle us. But they aren’t always in our budget, and they don’t always work.  I get sucked into it a lot. I always seem to go back to my tried and true holy grail items though – and they don’t break my budget. In fact, those items are easily accessible at the drugstore. Today we’re going to talk about my drugstore favorites I keep going back for over and over! I actually have a lot of drugstore favorites, but I narrowed it down to just 3. I poured over receipts to see what I bought the most – so those are the 3 items we’re going to focus on.  There is actually a 4th item,…

Revamp Your Spring Style with Caress

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. Spring is here and it’s time to lighten up! Away with the heavy fragrances and time to show your love for the lighter, airy scents to match your wardrobes. I have different styles I wear throughout the year, and now that Spring is in full swing in California – I have traded in the darker tops for lighter pinks and beige tones. Even my hair gets an overhaul with sunkissed highlights! Why not find a fragrance to match the lighter feel? The second I tried the Caress Botanical Body Sprays – I fell in love and cleared my vanity of fragrances aside from these. They come in the following scents: Mediterranean Lotus, Pink Peony and Sweet Violet. You can wear them on their own, or mix and match for more possibilities! My favorite combo? Pink Peony and Sweet…

Go Flake Free With Me With Dove DermaCare

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. It really doesn’t matter what time of year it is, flakes aren’t a wanted trend. Whether you are wearing a cute dark sweater or an adorable dark tank top – if flakes are present, you get embarrassed. I’ve tried several dandruff shampoos or 2-in-1 treatments and while they seem to take care of most of the dandruff issue, my hair suffered. It would feel stripped, dry and even looked it. But if I used shampoos and conditioners that made my hair look incredible, I had to deal with flakes. As my son gets older, he has the same, thick hair I have… and the same issues. We have the exact same hair type. His hair feels like straw if he uses dandruff control shampoo. Together, we are going on a flake free journey with Dove Dermacare Scalp! We…

Time to Stock Up On Spring Essentials

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. The sun is finally shining (well, in California anyway) and I’m in the Spring time mood! Out with the Winter skin care and hair care products and in with the Spring essentials. Vons/Pavilions, Albertsons and Jewel-Osco all have you covered with your Unilever needs. Our household has different needs, and with that comes different products. So when amazing sales are going on, I head out and stock up on essentials for the season. I might also do this so the boys don’t use up all my precious staples. I’m a huge fan of Nexxus and how good it makes my hair look and feel. The Nexxus Keraphix shampoo helps to heal damage to your hair and is Infused with an exclusive PROTEINFUSION blend with Keratin Protein and Black Rice. It’s silicone free, which helps prep your hair for deep…

Skin Care Essential: Olay Luminous Whip Moisturizer

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine. What if I told you that there’s a moisturizer that soaks in immediately, eliminates shine throughout the day, preps your skin for makeup, minimizes the appearance of pores and gives your skin lasting radiance? You’d think I was bluffing, right? Wrong. It exists, and it’s Olay Luminous Whip! When I was asked to try out a new Olay moisturizer, I knew I was up for it since I already use a lot of their products. But nothing prepared me for this. Olay Luminous Whip moisturizer isn’t your average lightweight moisturizer. It packs a much needed punch to up your skin care game. I get the hydration I need to my dryer skin areas, but the oil absorption I need to my oily areas. The texture was like nothing else I had…
