Fall Favorites 2014- Skincare

Happy Sunday!! I've had another busy day with coaching my girls at a playoff game and it was so cold out there and birthday party. Also trying to get this laundry completed before it drives me crazy!! So here is the second post to my Fall Favorites and it is going to be on skincare.


The colder weather is not so nice to my skin. I need to use something heavy to help keep my skin moisturized and soft. I just picked up the Nivea Essentially Enriched lotion and have been loving it so far. My skin is so soft and stays moisturized and doesn't get ashy lol. Its also good to reach for a good body cream or body butter to help your dry skin. I love the ones from Bath and Body Works.

It is also good to switch up your body cleansers when it gets cooler out. I still use a shower gel but will reach more for body creams to wash with. They are so moisturizing and help with keeping the moisture in your skin. Its also important to exfoliate your skin to help get rid of the dead skin cells and help keep your skin feeling smooth and soft. I love the Tree Hut body scrubs, they are not abrasive on your skin and leave it feeling so good. I also love making my own body scrubs to save on money.


Along with my body, my face gets dry as it gets colder. I need to use a heavier moisturizer on my face and I have been loving my L'oreal Active Daily Moisturizer so far. It does make my T-zone a bit more oily but it keeps my face moisturized all day. I also try to exfoliate my skin more and use a mask. I have been slacking on that but it really helps maintain your skin and keep it looking youthful.

Another tip is to drink plenty of water. You have to take care of your self on the inside too. I drink nothing but water when I am at work and I love that my job has a water machine. I can just refill my bottle all day. I've noticed a difference in my skin and body, it helps with retaining moisture.

So that is it for my Skincare Fall Favorites. What body and skin products do you love to use when it gets colder? Comment below and let me know. Hope you enjoyed your weekend and see you guys Tuesday!!

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…

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…
