 School’s back in session! (can I get a hip hip hooray!?) As nice as it is to have the kids out of the house and to be back into a routine, for some reason I thought life would feel less crazy and chaotic. But, in fact it’s just the opposite! There are so many school activities and now extra-curricular activities are picking up again. I guess that’s just the life of a busy mama!

Alise and I are both Master Estheticians and LOVE skincare. We both also know the effects of not taking care of your skin, so I really am trying hard to keep my skin healthy and taken care of before it’s too late. The only hard part is…time. Ideally I would love to go get microdermabrasion treatments, a chemical peel, or a rejuvenating facial monthly,  I mean who wouldn’t. But, in this stage of life it seems like it’s not possible!

Here are a few of my knowledge nuggets. Enjoy!

Rodan + Fields Active Hyrdating Serum Review

Rodan + Fields Active Hydrating Serum Review

My friend Jessica sent me this bottle of Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum to try.

Mellie and I (Lou) are both Master Estheticians (licensed skin care professionals).

I was very curious, and cautious.

Being a skin care professional, I am a bit of a brat when it comes to what I will put on my skin!

But I have fallen in love!

Life Is An Adventure

Life Is An Adventure: a few notes about growing older

 

Life is…

Like Mellie mentioned a few posts back, we are working with “Cents of Style”. Right now they are working on an inspirational line of T-shirts titled “Life Is…”.

 Starting 1/20 all of their inspirational graphic t-shirts will be 50% off and FREE shipping! Use code : INSPIRE17. You won’t want to miss it! These shirts are SO awesome.  

I picked this shirt out because… Duh! It is cute!

Navy blue is totally my color!

Then Melissa wrote her post “Life Is Sweet”… It was awesome.   You should totally read it! It is so good. Then I was like, awe crap… what am I going to say about my shirt? I picked the wrong shirt. Honestly, my life right now is not super adventurous. I am not trekking the globe, jumping out of air planes, or feeding hungry sharks that’s for sure. Right now, adventure for me means changing out of my pajamas or making it out of the grocery store alive. (I’d rather swim with the sharks.)
