Living My Best Skin

Sponsored Post / Advertorial This weekend I had the absolute pleasure of being able to test drive the Triple Lipid Restorative Facial by SkinCeuticals. I went to Adara Medical Spa where I was greeted by a very amicable receptionist and the entire spa was white, clean and inviting. After the hour-long-plus facial, my skin felt plumped, hydrated, restored, protected, and youthful. I know the importance of lipid layers for the skin’s protection, so it makes sense to my medical mind…

Enzymatic Skin Heroes

There are a few things that getting older has taught me that is actually of some benefit…(1) Hold out for Mr. Right, not Mr. Right now, (2) if you’re going to drink at a party, alternate with glasses of water, and (3) my skin loves chemical exfoliation. That last tip is something that I’m a bit of a late bloomer in learning, but it has “made all the difference” (thank you Mr. Frost). I wanted to introduce you to a…

Beauty Gift Ideas 2017

I cannot believe the holidays are already around the corner! It’s almost Thanksgiving, and for some people, that is good enough reason to start unpacking the holiday decor. Guilty as charged! I haven’t had much opportunity to film anything since Harper was born, but I do have ample hours to write blog posts while the little one is feeding or sleeping. I promise, when I’m up to it, I’ll film some baby/birth related videos! For now, I wanted to share…

Urban Decay Naked HEAT Swatches & Review

URBAN DECAY dropped a bombshell on the beauty world not long ago by launching their newest “Naked” palette, part of the uber-popular Naked series of palettes, ironically, meant to be neutral or flesh-toned.

As the popularity of Naked 1 and 2 began to soar, however, the brand expanded the range to include much more than just flesh-toned pretties. Naked 3 was a rosey themed palette at the height…

My Umstead Spa Experience

About a week ago I had the most amazing spa experience of my life.  I haven’t been one much for facials or spa treatments in the past, mostly because I couldn’t bear to spend that much money on myself.  But when I was treated to a very generous gift card to the Umstead Spa from my CRNA’s at my place of work for Christmas, I browsed the treatment menu for months trying to decide which experience I would indulge in.…
