Week 1 Results

So in my previous post, I'm on the hunt for finding a skincare regimen that works for me. I'm going to be doing this for about four weeks and hopefully find something that works. Here is a recap on the products I used during week one:

Daytime: Cleanser- Nastassja
                Toner- Apple Cider Vinegar
                Serum- Epionce
                Eye Cream- Yes To Cucumbers
                Moisturizer- Korres

Nighttime:Coconut Oil
                 Cleansing Water
                 Eye Cream and Moisturizer(same as daytime)

The first day of the new routine, my face did break out a little but calmed down after rubbing an ice cube across it. My skin felt like it was burning, maybe because I was doing something different. On Wednesday, I did exfoliate at night with Sukiface Exfoliating Cleanser (it is in my August Monthly Favorites post). On Thursday, I realized I ran out of my cleanser and used a cleanser called Menza that I received in one of my boxes. I really did not like the way it made my face feel after using it. It just made my face feel a bit dry and I just didn't like how my face felt. I went to Target and purchased L'oreal Ideal Clean Foaming Gel Cleanser to replace my other one. I did not wash my face that night for some reason, I think I was really tired( Good thing I didn't have on makeup that day). I do love how my skin felt smooth and really clean.I did not use a mask during this week but will in future weeks.  I did have a few flare ups but overall, I did like the results. I feel that I don't really need to use a serum. I guess I need to do more research on what serums do and if I really do need to use it with my skincare routine.

Week 2 has started and the next post will list everything I will be using!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
