Olay Whips with SPF : My New Go-To Moisturizer

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine. SPF – that important thing you always hear about but don’t always incorporate into your routine. I’ll admit, I’m completely guilty of this. As I’m getting older though (I turned 36 a couple months ago) I’m hearing more and more of things I could have done to prevent some of my skin issues and SPF is mentioned All. The. Time. Why do I skip it? It’s not on purpose. I’m not a morning person and I just genuinely forget to apply it.  I cleanse my skin, exfoliate every couple of days, moisturize and do my makeup and then run out the door. I miss the part about applying SPF with my moisturizer. Part of me also thinks “Well, I’m indoors almost all day, it’s okay to skip!” No it’s not. While…

Lose The Loofah with Caress White Orchid & Coconut Milk Shower Foam

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. Spring has been here for over a month now, but the weather is finally clearing up and acting like Spring! I’m swapping to my Spring skin care goodies and adding some new finds into the mix! I’m also ready to lose the loofah with my new shower foam from Caress! For the last couple of weeks I’ve been using Caress Botanicals Shower Foam in White Orchid & Coconut Milk. It’s Spring in a convenient pump top bottle and I am LOVING it! It has a warm and mellow scent – fragrant white orchids and a smooth coconut milk. Caress Botanicals Shower Foam in White Orchid & Coconut Milk is a light, fresh floral scent and it lingers on the skin long after your shower is done.  When you use it, rich foam pumps out of the bottle and…

Ultimate Odor Protection for Your Workout

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own.  My busy season at work is over, which means Nick and I have more time together. Earlier this year we got back into eating healthier, so our next step is to get back into our fitness routines together. This means hitting the gym before work and taking walks after dinner. Now that it’s Spring, I have a more motivation to tone up a little for all the tank tops and shorts I plan on wearing. I don’t know about you, but I was one of those unfortunate ones that sweat fairly easily. I used to agonize about any type of work out because I would inevitably have a hint of the workout “smell” and it made me self conscious Notice how I said ‘used to’? Well that’s because I started using Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant. I’ve actually been using Dove…

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,…

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. Albertsons has 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 conditioning. After a rough Winter,…
