This post has been a long time coming! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know that I love everything skincare! From testing out products, to reading/researching it, or talking to others and giving out advice. Before I dive into my skincare routine I’d like to talk a little about how I’ve gotten to this point. I’ve been lucky enough to have
Sun, Mar 20 I’m on a flight right now heading to Phoenix for work. I’m sitting in a middle seat (ugh) which happens when you don’t check in when you’re supposed to and every now and again I get a whiff of bad breath/odor which I’m pretty sure is coming from my neighbor on the left (help me). Honestly the only thing I’m really looking forward
Ok so it’s been a bit since we last “spoke”. It’s by far the longest break I’ve ever taken from my blog. I wouldn’t say it was necessarily intentional but eventually turned that way. The last part of the year my focus changed in large part due to a big personal loss. People deal with loss in so many different ways and I suppose the
Last time for what you ask? I’m talking about a skin check! We all know how harmful the sun can be and I often talk here on the blog on the importance of wearing sunscreen. Granted, most of the time I talk about it because of vanity reasons like preventing wrinkles, crows feet, sun spots… you get the drift. Today, however I want to
Joy comes to us in ordinary moments. We risk missing out on joy when we get too busy chasing down the extraordinary – Brene Brown “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.
So lately I’ve been all about listening to podcasts. I’m listening in the car, at work, while cleaning, walking, waiting somewhere, to tune out the kids, etc. Bascially, it’s a great way to do something you enjoy with something you don’t like so much. My headphones have been a staple in my bag so that I can listen anywhere! I love podcasts because they’re a great way
Several months ago when I was first asked by my bestie to tag along on a work trip to Paris I honestly sorta brushed it off. Of course it sounded amazing but there’s no way it could happen. Right?!? What about the kids, work, life?? I’m a mom….I can’t possibly go on a trip without my kids and to Europe no less. Not to mention all the
A couple of days ago, I had the pleasure of spending the day with some of my favorite girls and the very handsome Oscar de la Renta (sorta). One of my birthday presents was tickets to the fabulous Oscar de la Renta exhibit at the de Young Museum (my sisters know me well). We made a day of it and spent the day strolling around Golden Gate
The last couple of months have been nothing short of…..BUSY. Busy doesn’t always mean bad though right? Actually, if I were to really think about it….it’s good most of the time. Especially when it means it’s because I’ve been busy having fun with family and friends, or running around with my kids, or even dare I say it….with work. Sure it can be tiring and I
As most of us know it’s important to exfoliate our skin. Exfoliating helps remove all the dead skin cells on the surface to reveal more fresh, smooth, glowing skin and who doesn’t want that?! I’ve used my fair share of exfoliating face washes as well as my Clarisonic (which I love) but my new fave way to exfoliate my face lately is by shaving it!
I’m having some very mixed feelings (#anxiety) about leaving my 30’s and starting a new decade of my life. My 30’s have been some of the best years of my life so far. I got married, we bought our first house and I became a mom. Those are some pretty serious milestones. I will forever look back fondly on these years as a time of many
This past weekend I had the most amazing time with my girlfriends celebrating myself and Danielle’s almost 40th birthdays (savoring the last few weeks) in beautiful Napa. There is nothing better than spending quality time with your friends and making a lifetime of memories. Although Napa was beautiful as always and the house we stayed in was great; what I’ll cherish the most are these
