I am declaring this my week of SKIN! Keep up with me all week on Instagram to see what products i’m posting about and come back here to read about them!
So many of us don’t know what we should be using on our skin. I’m here to tell you what I love and use on mine.
First off, ANY product you buy, wether it be for skin or hair, should be researched (at least a little bit). Sephora makes this super freaking easy. Download the app, search for a product, and you’ll find hundreds of reviews from people with different skin types. Reviews help me A LOT when I’m deciding on new products.
Another trick? Get samples! Sephora hands these out for free. Go in, ask for a sample of whatever new product you’re wanting to try and voila! Samples are a great way to test out how your skin will react to a new product. I typically give a product 3-7 days to become friends with my skin. If they aren’t bff’s by the end of the week, then byeeeeee.
So where to start? Keep up with me on Insta and look out for my next post this week!
P.S. Want to win a sample pack of my favorite products?! All you have to do is 1. Subscribe to my blog, 2. Follow me on Insta, and 3. Leave a comment on this post telling me you subscribed!
Spring Break is coming up and I cannot wait! My husband is a teacher so we try to go away during his spring break every year. This year we’re spending the week with his parents in Fort Myers, FL. I’ve never been, but growing up Greg spent many of his spring breaks with his grandparents down there. He has a ton of fond memories and is really excited to go back and I’m excited to see the spots where so many of his memories took place. I’m also really excited to get out of this cold and spend some time in 80-degree weather!
Whenever I go away, I make a list of everything I need or
want to pack. I used to be terrible at this. I’d throw a bunch of clothes into
my suitcase and if I wore it, great and if not then whatever. I don’t do that
anymore. It only causes stress and you almost always forget or wish you had
packed something else.
So what’s on my list? I break it down into three sections:
Skin (that includes make-up), hair, and clothes. I realize to some this may
sound like a complete waste of time, but it really helps me! As I go through
the list, I check off what I’ve packed (super satisfying, btw). In the skin
section I put my cleanser, a few exfoliating pads, moisturizer, sunscreen,
make-up, eye cream, night cream, and Vitamin C Serum.
The hair list is pretty simple (LOL) I pack three brushes
(paddle brush and two round brushes – I do my own blowouts, even on vacation),
blow dryer, straightener, Brazilian
blowout bonding spray, shower cap, and a few butterfly clips!
My clothing list basically just says: underwear (duh),
strapless bra, nude bra, black bra, socks, shorts, 4 bathing suits, etc. I
don’t actually list out my outfits (would that make me totally crazy?! LOL).
I’ve been saving a few of the super cute spring/summer items
I’ve purchased for this trip (and our trip to San Diego in July) and I can’t
wait to wear them! Check out my finds! Tons of great sales happening right now!
