Like A Baby's Bottom

All skin care professionals will tell you this...
#1. Every morning wash your face
#2. Use a routine skin care product daily (day, night, or both)
#3. Every night before bed clean your make up off 
#4. Get plenty of sleep to minimize bags or dark circles around the eyes. Start using an eye cream early in life. 

Well guess what? I do wash my face every morning in the shower, but the rest I don't do as often as I should. That is until now! I went to the store yesterday and they had the Clinique 3 Step Cleanse sets for $11.00. It comes with Liquid Facial Soap Mild, Clarifying Lotion, and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I heard great things about it so I decided to picked one up (dry combination skin) and give it a whirl. I have used Clinique before but not these particular items, I've really only used their make up. 

3 Step Face Cleaner


Today is day 3 of using these and I'm already in love with the way my skin has improved so far. Already my face feels so much softer, smoother, more even, and my make up goes on easier to. It says to do the routine twice a day but I'm slowly working up to that because I do have sensitive skin if I switch up products or use new stuff. This will last me for a while but as soon as I start running low you bet I'll be right back to buy some more. 

Tomorrow I'm going to go check out the make up remover & eye cream as well because Lord knows I need it. Every day I've woke up with either dark circles or bags under my eyes and it's driving me crazy. I turned 25 back in December and I'm starting to notice things that I never had to deal with before. I've always taken good care of my body, weight, and things like that...now I need to do more treatments and things for my skin and hair. What are some of your favorite beauty products?

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Warming The Soul

The weather has been viciously cold in many parts of the United States this winter. If you are anything like me, that means hot delicious soup to warm the mind, body and soul. Soup is a comfort food staple and I feel like people are more drawn to it between October and March, that's especially true for my family. With Florida weather it's just almost too hot for soup any other time of year unless is storming and chilly out.

   Pinterest is my absolute favorite place to find new recipes, so I wanted to share a few of my soup pins with you. I've made all of these except one, which I'll make a note of below, and they've all turned out delicious.


1). Crab & Corn Chowder- This soup is absolutely delicious and hearty. For me, it was something different and unexpected. Growing up in Kentucky we didn't make soups like this, mom always served chili, potato, or broccoli cheddar soup because those are the southern specialties. If you make any of these soups, please …
