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!!

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…
