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…

How My Son Expresses His Personality With AXE

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. Let’s be honest – we all want to believe our kids are perfect little angels. For the most part, that may be true, but then you walk into your 12 year old’s room and it smells like something may have died in there. Yup – that’s the life of having a growing boy. My son is a sweater. Always has been. It can be the dead of Winter and he will be a sweaty mess in his sleep. It wasn’t so bad when he was 3 or 4 years old, but now? Whew – no no no. When he turned 6, I started getting him into the routine of good hygiene. You wash all the body parts, apply deodorant and brush your teeth. Back then, we had to be careful about what he used because he still had…

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…
