Updated Skincare Regimen- July 2014

Hey guys!! Back in January I updated everyone on what I was currently using on my skin and you can see that post HERE! Since then I have changed my skincare routine and just wanted to give an update.


Cleanser- L'Oreal Ideal Clean Foaming Gel Cleanser- This bottle is almost empty but I have been loving this cleanser in the morning. I may try something else since its so hot now. I'm open to suggestions!!

Toner- Apple Cider Vinegar- Still using this as a toner. I just love it and I also use this in my hair.

Eye Cream- Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel- I'm going to use this until I'm out. It does help with puffiness in the mornings but I need to be using something for anti-aging soon.

Sunscreen- L'Oreal Sublime Sun- I am on my second bottle of this and really love it. Its not too greasy on my face and doesn't make it oily.

Moisturizer- Korres Pomegranate Balancing Cream-Gel Moisturizer- I purchased this a few months ago and just love it for the Spring and Summer. The only thing is I have to watch how much I apply due to being more oily in my T-Zone this time of the year!


Now my nighttime routine has changed a bit. I wanted to try something new. I was using Coconut Oil just as my cleanser and makeup remover.

Makeup Remover- Alcone Make-Off- I purchased this at IMATS this past April and so far I have been liking them. I will do a full review on these later on.

Cleanser- Clean and Clear Night Relaxing Deep Cleansing Face Wash- This is a new product that I saw in Target and it was only 5-6 dollars. So far so good with this cleanser. A full review will come on this product soon too.

Toner- Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water- This bottle is just about empty and I'm going to try out the cleansing water that I got in Birchbox last month.

Eye Cream- Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel- I'm still on the search for a nightly eye cream, I'm open to suggestions.

Moisturizer- Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil- I'm getting sad that this bottle is about gone! I really love this facial oil and I may try some other ones while I save up to buy the full size container!

Masks, Scrubs and Lip Products

I try to exfoliate my face twice a week and use a mask once a week. Sometimes I forget to do so and I love having multi-purpose products!!

When I do forget to exfoliate or use a mask, I reach for Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Extreme Renewal Exfoliating Facial. (Boy that was a mouth full lol). It is a mask and exfoliate in one. This really gives my skin a nice glow while getting the dead skin cell off and leaving it so soft and smooth.

When I do remember to exfoliate, I have been using Derma-E Microdermabrasion Scrub that I got in one of my Ipsy bags. I love the results I get with this scrub. A review will be coming on this.

For my mask, I'm still using Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel. Its still a favorite of mine.

I have added a lip care routine to my beauty regimen. I made this DIY Lip Scrub that I haven't blogged about yet but will soon. After I exfoliate my lips, I apply Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment. I do this lip treatment for day and night. It really has helped my lips look and feel smooth and stay moisturized.

So that is it for my updated skincare routine. I will probably do another one once Fall or Winter hits. What are your favorite skincare products? Comment below and let me know!!

So Sunday, my boyfriend and I had a kid-free day. We went to brunch, saw Think Like A Man Too (which was so good and  funny! Go see it if you haven't yet) and hung out. 

An updated Hair Routine Video is in the works along with some overdue reviews lol!!


  1. Great routine! I use coconut oil to remove my makeup when I'm wearing heavy water proof it! I normally make my own lip scrubs also but I'm dying to try the Josie Maran. I love the packaging.

    1. Thanks Keisha!! I may go back to my coconut oil, just wanted to try makeup remover wipes. I love the cute packing for Josie Maran!

  2. Wow you have a pretty through regimen! I never would think to use apple cider vinegar as a toner. I actually don't use toner at all..not sure why lol

    1. Thanks Tanya. I saw someone on YouTube talk about using Apple Cider Vinegar for a toner and been using it even since then!

  3. So many great things here! Great skincare routine!

  4. i've been testing out one skincare line on one side of my face and liked it so much i've switched it over!

    1. That is an interesting things to do when testing out new items. Thanks for the tip and stopping by Elle!!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
