5  anti aging skin care products to try

Oh, anti- aging products! When did I get old enough to be blogging about you?!

Seriously! It seems like yesterday I was in my early twenties, and now I’m in my early thirties. Ugh! Sigh!

I guess it’s unavoidable. We all age, but I believe it’s all about aging with grace. And I’m a true believer in using quality, tried and true products to aid in the aging process.

That’s why I’ve put together a list of 5 Anti-Aging Skin Care Products to try! Now, remember I’m in my early thirties, so these are the products I’m currently using for my skin. If you have  younger or a bit more mature skin than I do, you may need to lose or add some products that will be beneficial to your skin care needs.

1. OLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum Collagen Booster 

This product is great for all skin types. It’s loaded with anti- aging properties, and it’s a product that nourishes deep into the skin, it helps smooth out lines and wrinkles and prevents further damage.  Sensitive skin prone to irritation will benefit immensely from the calming properties of this oil-free serum.

2. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream

I have to say, for a drugstore product, this moisturizer has packed a punch behind its claims. It claims to  accelerate surface cell turnover to give you visible wrinkle results starting day 1. I have to agree. I’ve seen a huge difference in my skin since using this product. My skin is softer, smoother and hydrated. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

3. Tarte Maracuja Oil

Maracuja oil is great for all skin types. It’s a nutrient -rich oil that provides great skin care benefits. If you’re dry; it will hydrate, reduce redness, irritation, and inflammation. If you’re oily it’s been said to diminish the amount of sebum your body produces causing oily skin. This is an amazing product, and it’s been called Mother Nature’s RX for skin!

4. OLE HENRIKSEN truth to go wipes

These wipes are perfect for moms or people on the go! Oh, and the smell is AMAZING they smell like an orange dreamsicle! Strong enough to remove dirt, grime and makeup, but gentle enough not to over dry the skin.

5. Tarte maracuja C-brighter™ eye treatment

This is another great product from Tarte. This nutrient rich eye treatment  visibly hydrates, firms and brightens the delicate eye area. It gives tired eye’s and instant brighter look! I’ve also noticed a visible difference in the fine lines under my eyes. They are visibly smoother and hydrated.

I’m sure you can tell most of these products mentioned above have one ingredient that stands out. Vitamin C. It’s because  vitamin c has AMAZING skin care benefits. It lightens, brightens, and tightens the skin. So if you have dull, lifeless, tired looking skin these products will be great for you.

Fashion Friday


I’m starting a new series called “Fashion Friday.” I will be showcasing an outfit or 2 or maybe all of the outfits I wore that week on Friday! Now, I can assure you I will not always look Glamorous, as much as I would like to get “ready” every day, it’s just not in the cards. I am a mom of two girls!

I love seeing what thing other people put together to make an outfit. I figured I would show you some of the things I put together to make outfits.  I LOVE seeing some “behind the scenes”  stuff too. Girl, get your mind out of the gutter. I’m talking about what went into the process of picking, and putting these outfits together. I may throw in some product spotlights too! Where I will feature my favorite product, clothing item,or piece of jewelry of the week! You never know what CRAZY things I might do, you will have to stay- tuned and see!


Feel free to join in on the fun Tweet or Facebook you “Fashion Friday” outfit with the hashtag #FashionFriday! So without further ado This is my first “Fashion Friday” outfit!



Would you even dare?

Would you even dare to wear these Christian Louboutin silk Swarovski-encrusted heels? Christian Louboutin designed these gorgeous 8-inch heels, adorning that signature “red bottom”  for the English National Ballet.

Of course, I know you couldn’t physically wear these lovely heels. But my question I have is, How high is too high? What is you “heel” height limit?  What kind up heel do you prefer? Do you like a classic pump with a small 3 to 4 inch heel, or are you a wedge girl like me? Or are you rockin those “sky high” stiletto’s?

I’m just curious, on what other mom’s are wearing. Would you wear any of these crazy shoes?

Leave you comments below, I love to hear what you have to say!


Burt’s Bees citrus facial scrub


So, I have to admit. I have been kinda lazy when it comes to my skin care regimen. Being a busy mom I don’t always have the time or energy to wash my face morning and night. When I found out about this facial scrub I was elated! This  Burt’s bees citrus facial scrub has totally made my life so easy, and my skin AMAZING! I have not had a breakout since using this facial scrub, and I normally have acne prone skin. It’s gentle enough to use everyday, and takes every bit of my face makeup off!
