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!

Dog Sledding Winter Adventure

Hello All,

So sorry I have been away for the month but January and me took a little while to get back in the swing of things.

My holidays and Christmas vacation got me thinking about life as usual and what I want, what makes me the most happy. 

Travel is definitely one of my most loved passions. Over the holidays we went on an adventure that has been on my bucket list for a long time and I have to say scratching it off my list was just as satisfying as I thought it would be. 

Dog sledding!! I mean you can't go wrong beautiful scenery and adorable dogs it's a win win!

They are all so cute...we got introduced to them by name. After we met the team they couldn't wait to get started.

It is a majestic back drop and there are times it was so beautiful I thought it was fake.

We stopped a long the way so the dogs could eat some snow and cool off. Apparently 30 degree weather is freezing to us but they prefer it to be around negative 17. The dogs would role around in the snow to cool down.

So cute. 

It was so much fun and we would love to do it again!!

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer and I felt like I had won the lottery after this trip and here are just a few images of the beauty we captured.

This was our lunch view

Until next time Colorado...we can't wait to see you again!

Travel Uniform

Travel attire for me needs to look cute and be cozy, especially when it's cold outside. I like a sweater or scarf that is loose and warm. A jacket that is large if you are going to a cold weather area I don't have to fit it in my bag. Leggings for comfy warm travel and some boots that are easy to take on and off but keep my feet warm on the cold plane. Also a good carry on bag that can be put on my shoulder and can carry a lot.

I also usually curl my hair the night before so I don't have to rush the next morning but it looks done.  

Some lipgloss, lotion and hand sanitizer and I'm off.

Here are the links to my favorites below:

Oreo Truffles

It wouldn't be Christmas without Oreo truffles in my house. I unfortunately caught the flu this past week so I am behind on somethings this year. Being so sick I realized sometimes you just have to let things go and take care of yourself.

Today was the first day I felt like baking in a couple weeks. Super Man was excited but still encouraging me not to over do it. 

These are delicious, pretty and easy and everyone loves them. 

All you need is a pack of Oreos, cream cheese, melting chocolate and what ever topping you like.

You put all the Oreos in the food processor and grind them up fine. Then mix them with the cream cheese. 

Roll it into little balls

Then role them in the melted chocolate


With you desired topping 

This red has a little glittery sparkle I love it

Once done put them in the fridge to harden and then your done.

Be warned they dissapear fast and they will be requested year after year :)

Deck the Halls Part 2

Dallas had some crazy weather and we are currently iced in for the weekend. So needless to say I had some time to finish my decor. 

Come on in...

The fresh wreath is a surprise from the man...he is pretty awesome.

That sign is my favorite.

My trees I made last year except the one on the left I bought it.

I love this little church it lights up as well.

We get a fresh tree I love the smell and the look it just really makes my heart smile.

Still working on the perfect plaid plows to replace the brown ones.

Coffee and coco station.

Nuts and snack station.

Cocktail station.

I still have a couple little things my mom has that I want to put up this year and I need to wrap some gifts but it is feeling festive and cozy! Here are some others enjoying it...

And just like that Christmas waves it's magic wand over the world and suddenly everything is softer and more beautiful...

Hope you are warm and cozy where you are!
