New Natural Products

Hello there, I know it has been a little while since I have posted anything...I think the cold makes me hibernate. I am feeling much more adventurous and energized with the warmer weather approaching!

I had to tell you about these face products I found.

Andalou. You can get them at Sprouts, Market Street or online.

I really wish I had taken before and after photos. The have evened my skin tone and really helped in my wrinkle areas. I turn the big 35 in April and I am all for preventative measures. Plus I really like the idea of not using harsh chemicals on my skin. So let me introduce you to the line up...

This is the overnight cream I am using now it is from their "Brighting" line. It is creamy and luxurious but not greasy. It also smells like citrus. Before this I tried the anti-aging and I loved it!! It smelled like cocoa and felt like I was having an amazing spa treatment each time I put it on, they both do really and I have decided to alternate them...when one is out I buy the other and so on.

This is the perfect day cream with sunscreen. Not too oily and doesn't smell  too terribly much like sunscreen. Light and pretty perfect. I use it on my face, neck and hands! Don't forget those.

I think this little jewel may be my favorite. I have pretty deep expression lines on myforehead  and starting to get some around my eyes. After about three weeks of using this I am noticing a significant difference. 

Any how if you are looking for some vegan face products that are reasonably priced, check them out I have been impressed! 

Here is me with no makeup, close up so you can see my skin well.

My nose and cheeks are always a little pink but the tone over all looks much more even...and the lines on my forehead much better!!! Sorry I don't have a before and excuse the shinny eyes I sleep with Vaseline around them ;) 

I will keep you posted on others in the line I try. They even have a cute little starter kit here if you would like to check it out.

Taking care of you skin will be the best thing you ever do! Don't forget...

Get good sleep
Drink lots of water
Always wash your face 
Wear sunscreen 
And as my mother would say "don't squint" (this is my problem) 

Have a great week!

Shiny and Healthy

I have let my hair grow out really long and I have colored it so I am always on the look out for items to keep it healthy. I am not a huge product user but I found myself needing more moisture on the ends of my hair lately. I decided to try a couple things and I am loving these...

It's an everyday conditioner, I just use it in my ends and a little in my hair line to help with dry scalp. 

It smells good and makes my hair super soft and shiny.


I also love love this stuff.

Smells like coconut and I put a tiny dab in my hand and run it through the ends...yummy. 

Smooth and shiny.

You can read more in the links below...happy Wednesday!!
Anti Breakage Serum

I got them both at Kroger.

Islamorada Day 1 Part 1

It was time for a vacation. If I don't see the ocean once a year I start to get ancy. Plus we needed some time to breath and get ready for a lot changing in our lives. I had never been to the Keys and neither has Super Man so we were excited to check it out. We hopped on a plane and landed in Miami. She welcomed us bright and cheerfully.

We grabbed a rental car and started our drive, driving in is really the way to go its so easy and beautiful!

I was in charge of navigating and I have to say only two turns from Miami to the Keys ...I nailed it!

We stopped for necessities.

And followed the aqua trimmed highway until we saw the ocean water peek out to greet us and then all of the sudden we were on the islands.

Things immediately started to slow down and the breeze picked up.

The views kept getting better and next thing we knew we arrived at our own little private island haven.

Followed the trail to the reception where some friendly ladies asked us to sit and placed some welcome treats in our hands.

With a tour of the property and I could feel my body relaxing...maybe it was the drink or maybe my surroundings. I didn't really care it was wonderful!

Our suite was cool and peaceful 

We threw our bags down threw on swimsuits and headed for the water.

We walked around the amazing garden that made us feel like we were in another country. Everything was so quite and peaceful and each little nook was more beautiful than the last.

Met some friends then decided to commit to a location to lay around until dinner time.

We found a tree top cabana all to ourselves so we settled in for some naps and reading.

After dosing off I decided to take a dip in the pool to cool down a bit.

We had it all to ourselves so we floated until the sun started to go down...

After chatting with the friendly bartender and getting some recommendations on dinner we ran back up to the room to get ready for dinner and the sunset. 

It's amazing how being in this place for only about 3 hours I already felt my muscles loosen, and peace surround me. I was already in love and I hadn't even seen the sunset.
To be continued tomorrow...

Happy Monday!

Get That Healthy Glow

I am new to the the primer world when it comes to makeup. I have tried the smash box kinds and I like them ok...I don't think they are magic or anything but the work well.

I have always been a fan of a little healthy dewy glow under your makeup without looking shiny so I thought I would try a couple of store bought ones for cheep to see of I had any luck and I am loving this one!

Loreal Magic Lumi light infusing primer. It helps my makeup stay on and it really give me a good highlighter under my eyes an on my cheek bones.

Not sure if this photo captures it but this is the end of the day and still a little brightness under my eyes. I have dark hereditary circles so I need all the help I can get.

You only need a tiny dot for your whole face.

It will last you forever.

You can see the highlighter here.

And fully blended in.

I really enjoy it and its inexpensive. 

Have you tried any primers you like?
