1c63b124-34c2-11e4-b329-22000af93a2d

With summer receding in our collective rear-view mirrors, with its beach trips, days spent lounging in the sun and swimming in pools and smoky camp-outs, it's time to do a little damage control from the sun, salt water, chlorine, and great outdoors. We all are careful to use sunscreen on our skin and maintain a skin care routine to help keep skin healthy, wrinkle-free, and protected from the elements. But how many of us do the same for our hair? If you're like me, some shampoo and conditioner tossed hastily into the buggy at Target is as far as you … [Read more...]

file000284162710

    A gentle massage on your face with a good night cream is the perfect way to end a hard day and should be part of your skincare routine. Cell renewal is much faster while you’re asleep, and you can leave your skin looking smooth and youthful if you use a good regenerist night cream. However, there are a few things you should bear in mind if you want to get the best results. Picking the right cream No matter how much money you spend on a cream or how qualitative it is, it won't do you any good if you don't pay attention to a few … [Read more...]

All opinions are mine alone. #SmoothSummer #CollectiveBias My husband has always had a bit of a scruff problem.  When we met he was young and had that patchy facial hair look.  Then we got older and he started trying for a full beard.  I am ok with a full beard and clean shaven but nothing in between.  I hate the scruff.  My husband is probably the most awesome person I know.  He works two jobs from 7ish in the morning until 10ish at night.  He comes home and … [Read more...]

Taming the Oily Locks with Dove Men + Care Hair Products

  My husband is the best thing that ever happened to me.  Honestly, I would be a completely different person if I had not have met him that day in a dirty bar on Cinco de Mayo.  So believe me when I say that I love him.  I just get irritated with him sometimes.  Like when he completely  doesn't take care of his hair or body.  He has nice hair when he does something with it.  Like washing it.  Ok, he washes his hair daily but it doesn't look like it.   So he always looks like he hasn't showered in days. It is not his fault really.  His hair … [Read more...]

3607346235942

We normally hear a lot of women complain about buying stuff for their man. Will I buy him a new pair of socks? A pair of cute printed boxers? How about a fountain pen?

Holiday Stocking Stuffer Ideas

scout1

This holiday season I have a great list of items that would be perfect for stocking stuffers! Definitely the gift for someone who has kids.  I cannot tell you how many times I have been out and my kids have touched (or licked) something absolutely horrible.  My son once grabbed the toilet seat at a truck stop restroom with both hands and then turned around and said look its biting my butt and sat on the rim while closing the seat on his 'butt' which was really his back.  I was horrified.  I may have thrown up a little.  I wish I had some of these … [Read more...]

Dressing Up for the Good Times with Dress First

dress first

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Dress First. As always, all opinions are my own and I truly love the beautiful dresses they have for sale. I have never been very 'girly'. I never got that class from my mom on how to do makeup or wear my hair in cute ways.  Honestly, it is a good day when I brush my hair before I leave the house.  I rely heavily on my clothes to get me through dress up situations.  I know that my makeups a mess and I am wearing the wrong color shoes but at least I have a pretty outfit on.  Wearing something beautiful really … [Read more...]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tree Hut for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. It is summer and that means more heat.  That always means more skin showing so you need to make sure your skin is looking great!

Tree Hut Hand & Foot Care products are developed to keep hands and feet feeling smooth and … [Read more...]

Olay Fresh Effects Review

IMG_0936

I will be the first to admit that I am terrible at taking care of myself. As long as the kids are bathed and have clean clothes and I can make sure that my husband never wears a navy blue shirt with black dress pants, I am doing pretty well. I don't even get to take actual showers very often. They are more like wash as quick as you can before a child, cat, or husband needs you.  I love to have pamper days though and my husband tries to let me.  It is so expensive to go to the beauty salon and get a facial though.  So when I was asked to review some … [Read more...]
