Friday Favorites (1/23)

Happy Friday! Thanks to my recent commitment to use what I already have and be more of a minimalist, my favorites from the week are mostly things that I’ve had and/or loved for awhile. After this, I am off to Addie’s 9 month old well visit.  She is growing up way too quickly! Obviously, she is a favorite of mine too.     100% Pure Luminous Primer Vitamins & Antioxidants with Resveratrol  This is a product that I rediscovered through my decluttering process, and I am so glad that I did!  I actually bought it...

Why you might want to reconsider your underarm products

Why you might want to reconsider your underarm products

A very good friend, who knows me well, sent me an email yesterday that included a link to a blog post that she thought I would be interested in. The blog post that I am referring to was titled How an Armpit Cleanse Can Save Your Breasts.  Once I got through my middle school-style giggle fest over seeing the word “armpit” in the subject of an email, I began to read and knew that I had to do my own post on the subject. Many years ago, I read something similar that linked certain types of underarm products to breast cancer.  This...

Products I’ve used up lately & my thoughts on each one

Products I’ve used up lately & my thoughts on each one

Part of my decluttering/simplifying process involves using up things that I already own- especially when it comes to cosmetics and personal care products. Admittedly, it was sort of difficult at first. I wanted to try new lotions, thought I needed a new shade of lip gloss, and was positive that a different body wash would change my life.  But I forced myself to shop my existing arsenal of products and make use of what was in there, and now I am actually having fun with it.  It’s pretty satisfying to use things up, carry the empty...

Part One: 2014 All-Stars (Beauty & Skin Care)

Part One: 2014 All-Stars (Beauty & Skin Care)

One of the reasons why I love blogging so much is because I get to gush about all of the products that I am enjoying at the time.   I always feel like I am chatting with my girlfriends when I read your comments on what I’ve shared, and it is just so much fun! I thought it would be a blast to round up the best of the best of 2014 in beauty & skin care and food & health (split up into two posts). Let me tell you, I didn’t realize what a challenge that would be!  It was really difficult to choose among so many favorites, but...

10 Winter Skincare Tips

10 Winter Skincare Tips

Hello! If you celebrate Christmas, I hope that yours was wonderful.  Despite the fact that my whole family was sick, we still had a great time.  Michael was so aware of Santa (aka Ho Ho) this year, and it made Christmas so special.  Surprisingly, Addie was all into it too!  If you want to see some of our family photos, head on over to The Mini Skirt for my recap. When I lived up north, I absolutely hated winter.  Every time I had to scrape ice and snow off my car, I’d go on and on about how I was going to move to some place where I...

Friday Favorites (12/19)

Happy happy Friday! I’m overjoyed that Christmas is almost here, so I apologize in advance for the use of any ridiculous made-up words, rambling, or excessive perkiness used in this post. Now that we got that out of the way, here’s what made my list of favorites this week… Winter Dreams Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Duo This body butter makes my skin feel so silky, and it glides on easily and absorbs quickly.  I just wish that the set came in a larger size because I am going through it very quickly.  FYI- It is on sale...
