Friday Favorites (9/5)

Friday Favorites (9/5)

Happy Friday! Here are my favorites from the week… Apothederm Moisturizing Cleanser While I tend to stick to one skin care routine for awhile, I love trying out new face washes.  This one by Apothederm is wonderful, especially if you have dry skin.  It contains avocado oil, carrot, and seabuckthorn- all ingredients that fight the effects of aging and add hydration to the skin.  I have been liking it so much that I actually might stick with it for awhile…which says a lot coming from me.   Kettlebell The first time that I...

Why I blog (a virtual blog tour)

There are so many wonderful benefits of being a blogger, and I have to say that the very best one of all is meeting some fantastic people.  In fact, I met the majority of my friends in Charlotte through blogging! Char, one of my sweet blogging friends, who writes at Char Eats Greens recently asked me to participate in a virtual blog tour.  I was very flattered and thought that it sounded like a fun way for you to get to know me just a little bit better. In case you aren’t familiar with Char’s blog: Char is a recent nutrition...

Blog I’m Loving Lately (Clean Mama)

OK, you’re probably sick of hearing about it, but I just need to tell you how much I’m loving the strawberries that I bought at the farmer’s market. They are so sweet and fresh.  I have a feeling that they won’t last long around here!     And now time for something else I’m loving… (How’s that for a segue?  I’d make for one heck of a talk show host.) Every now and then, I stumble across a blog or website that gets me really excited.   I read through the current posts and articles,...

May ipsy bag & a Blog Hop!

May ipsy bag & a Blog Hop!

Even though I love beauty subscription services, sometimes I get bored with them after awhile.  I mean, exactly how many samples of hair serum, perfume, and lip gloss does a girl really need?  And why are the perfume samples always celebrity labels? I almost took a hiatus from ipsy after last month, but I’m so glad that I got preoccupied and forgot because this month’s box was really good! yaby concealer refills (probably won’t use) Zoya nail polish (A girl can never have too many of those.) Juice Beauty reflecting gloss...

  Before I dive into this post, I’d like to wish my dad a very Happy Birthday.  For his sake (and mine), I won’t reveal his age, but I will say that he looks very very young. Happy Birthday, Dad! *** I love reading other blogs, and I’m guessing that you probably do too. (Although if mine is the only one you happen to read, consider me extremely flattered.) Over the past few months, I’ve added a bunch of blogs to my Google reader.  These blogs all relate to health, beauty, lifestyle,  and/or being a mommy. I...
