One thing I learned from living in Alaska is that during the winter months, it’s VERY important to keep your skin hydrated (from the inside out). Not only does it make you feel better (no itchiness or tightness of the skin) but it can actually help you stay healthy during this time of year. That’s why I actively work to keep myself hydrated on the inside and the outside when it’s cold outdoors and the forced air is on indoors. From drinking tons of water to stashing tubes of lotion everywhere, here’s what I do to stay healthy and hydrated (with Neutrogena® Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream).
You know the saying, “Be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then be a bad ass unicorn.”. We all know someone who’s a little (or A LOT) into unicorns. And guess what? You can totally make their year by getting them all the unicorn things this year for the holidays. Any one of these items that I found that would make a perfect gift for the unicorn lover on your list!
I tend to be one of those people who “let’s myself go” during my pregnancy. Like, I stop caring completely. After the baby is born, I can start to refocus on myself and feel like me again. And it all starts with some small, simple actions that I can do every day and get back to basics with my self-care routine. If you’re in the same situation and looking to regain that sense of self, here’s my 5 steps for self-care after having a baby (featuring Neutrogena Body Oil):
So, I’m not much of a beauty person. I’m super low-key about the make-up I use and often go days and days without wearing any. However, one reason I can do that and not feel like a total uggo is because long ago, I learned the importance of excellent skin and dental care. If your skin and teeth are healthy and glowing – you really can feel confident in any situation – with or without make-up. So, naturally, I’m always on the lookout for awesome tools that I can invest in to help me keep my skin and teeth at their best. And I’m SO, SO excited to say… I found something AWESOME for those of you in the same boat! In January, I was able to preview (and play with) several products from the FOREO skin and dental lines and, OMG – they’re not only fantastic tools, they’re so chic and modern looking! So check out my rundown of the amazing beauty and health options for women, men, and children from FOREO:
I’m solidly into my second trimester with this, my second pregnancy, and I’ve definitely been relying on several items to make this time easier/more enjoyable. My post-first pregnancy belly flap has taken on the form of an actual baby bump so I’m looking less like a super fat lady with a beer gut and more like a super fat pregnant lady. I’m feeling much better that I was during my first trimester and have been really enjoying the idea of a having a baby boy! Here’s a rundown of my second trimester must haves:
Ah, the honeymoon – think of it as your reward for surviving the wedding planning process! I always recommend trying to pack for your honeymoon at least a week in advance – that last week of wedding planning is notoriously hectic. To help you out, I’ve compiled a little list of what to pack in your honeymoon beauty bag*:
In an ideal world, we would all have closets full of Jimmy Choos and gallons of Chanel No. 5 at our disposal. But this is the real world and if you’re reading this blog – it means that you’re probably planning a budget wedding. And planning a budget wedding often means deciding where you should spend and where you should save. One easy place for the ladies to save is on make-up. Yes, it would be lovely to hire a professional artist who uses only the best products BUT you probably can’t afford that. Luckily, I am here to help you. I’ve rounded up my favorite affordable bridal beauty finds for you (They’re also great for your honeymoon!). Go forth and enjoy!
Joico is hosting a wedding campaign and it kicks off with one of their popular ‘Drab To Fab’ miniseries featuring International Artistic Director, Damien Carney. In this webisode he shows off a mother and daughter getting ready for the big day with two styles that can be re-created at home. This webisode is very interesting to us as after a national survey 73% of women say their wedding is the biggest hair moment in their life along with 1 in 3 women polled that having a horrific hair day is worse than tripping while walking down the aisle.
A key ingredient to a fabulous bridal look is… great skin. Really. If your skin is radiant, your make-up will look amazing, your hair will shine, and your photos will be stunning. But let’s be honest, getting great skin can be EXPENSIVE – if you don’t know where to score a deal. The key to gorgeous skin can be achieved at home AND on a drugstore budget – just use these brands religiously.
