June Skincare Favorites


Today I am sharing some of my skincare loves from the past month. I have two new loves from one of my favorite skincare brands and even something for the guys in this roundup. So let's get right into it!


Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum // PCA SKIN
Game changer! No one wants thick, heavy moisturizers during the summer months. Enter hyaluronic acid boosting serum. Plump and firm skin through increased hydration with this advanced hyaluronic acid formulation. The smoothing blend provides deep, long-lasting hydration on three levels: on the surface, deeper in the skin, and by increasing the skin’s own hyaluronic acid production. The thin oil-free texture is ideal for increased hydration in the summer. Due to its small molecular size, it is able to penetrate through the skin to deliver deeper moisturization and significantly reduce deep wrinkles. Like I said, game changer.


Multi-Spectrum Eye Renewal Serum // TULA
So TULA has quickly become one of my favorite skincare brands. Like everything else I have tried from TULA, I love the eye renewal serum. Its formula relaxes wrinkles and de-puffs the under eye area. Containing a proprietary blend of probiotic strains, it has been clinically proven to stimulate cell renewal and strengthen the skin's moisture barrier. The soothing blend of peptides, caffeine, Vitamin A, golden chamomile, and rare botanical actives help reverse dark circles, sagging eyelids, and bags under the eyes. I love the cooling metal tip that depuffs on contact for a rested, awake eye area. It's your eight hours of sleep in a serum.

Pro-Glycolic 10% pH Resurfacing Gel // TULA
Balance the skin’s surface and restore its ideal pH with this resurfacing gel. The formula keeps the skin smooth, hydrated and protected from damage. It contains turmeric, which reduces inflammation, and blueberry extract, which strengthens the skin and fights free radical damage. Use it as you would a toner to optimize the balance of the skin's surface and restore it to its ideal pH after cleansing.



Complete Clarity Facial Cleansing Wash // Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare
The first step in your Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare routine, this cleansing gel will remove impurities and help protect your skin with a moisture barrier, leaving it incredibly soft and smooth. It transforms into a dense foam that removes impurities and makeup.

Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Cream SPF 30 // Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare
During the day, follow with this multi-level anti-aging day cream. It is formulated with a bio-copper complex that helps correct the most visible signs of aging. It uses three effective technologies to revive, improve, and protect your skin while recapturing a youthful appearance. It is infused with vitamin C to protect and refresh the look of your skin.

Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment // Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare

At night you will want to apply this anti-aging night cream. It repairs sun damage and addresses the effects of aging. It works with the skin's circadian cycle to revitalize the skin and is infused with a bio-copper complex for anti-aging benefits. Reduce wrinkles and improve firmness while you sleep!


Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask // REN Skincare
REN delivers high-performance skincare infused with 100% plant and mineral actives. I had the chance to try the bio active peel mask. This potent mask was designed to renew the complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and dramatically improve skin tone. It lifts dead skin and resurfaces to dramatically improve texture, firmness, and radiance. It can even minimize the appearance of pores and reduce sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and old acne scars! I love the skin rejuvenation and multiple anti-aging benefits!


Microdermabrasion Scrub // Derma E
This award-winning microdermabrasion scrub helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The fine-textured blend buffs away dullness and smooths the skin for a more youthful radiance. Enriched with natural astringents, this pro-grade treatment may also be used on your hands, elbows, knees, or heels! What a perfect way to get glowing summer skin at home.

Loving Lately


Time for another Loving Lately! Yes long overdue. However, it just gave me longer to try these products and ensure that they would indeed make my list of favorites. So here we go!


Josie Maran is definitely one of my all-time favorite skincare brands. Argan Balm is formulated with argan oil and shea butter and is perfect for this dry skin fall weather. You can use it anywhere on the body needing moisture to hydrate skin.


My favorite places to slather on Argan Balm are calloused feet, frayed cuticles, and even cracked lips. Treat your driest skin to this balm, packed with argan oil. It is a go-to solution for any and all dry-skin woes from head to toe. It will create a barrier that protects your skin with all-natural and organic ingredients like 100% Pure Argan Oil, shea butter, and soothing essential oils.


Speaking of dry cuticles, Therapeutic Cuticle Oil from Dr.'s Remedy is formulated with a trio of nourishing natural oils for supreme conditioning. Even anti-fungal, this cuticle oil intensely hydrates nails and skin and revives dry, cracked cuticles on contact. It is fast-absorbing with no greasy-feel. The luxe yet-lightweight drops deliver deep conditioning with an organic blend of comforting Lavender Oil, antioxidant-rich Grape Seed Oil, Algae Extract and purifying Tea Tree Oil.


Next up are two of Dr.'s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish shades that will take you straight into fall.  SOULFUL Slate Blue is intensely calming and effortlessly chic. PERFECT Petal Pink is a wearable sheer pastel that goes-with-everything and looks-great-on-anyone. Both shades consist of the fabulous Dr.'s Remedy Formula. Podiatrist formulated, it is enriched with Garlic Bulb Extract, Tea Tree Oil, Wheat Protein and Vitamins C and E.

WALDLÄUFER HANAH HITOMI WALKING OXFORD


It's time to try another great pair of Waldläufer [valt-loy-fer] shoes! This time we are going with an oxford style in classic forest green. Meet Hanah. She is a walking oxford that provides a chic alpine-inspired style along with incredible comfort features. Constructed with full-grain leathers and excellent support and stability, the Hanah will have you looking and feeling great every time you wear them.


There are so many great things about these shoes. First, they are so comfortable. Made with removable footbeds featuring arch and metatarsal support, they hug your feet in comfort. I can wear these all day without my feet hurting or feeling sore. 


The next thing I love is the super-soft suede and the furry accent. The color is just perfect for winter. It goes with pretty much everything and can be used as a natural in your wardrobe. How cute is that fur sticking out of the tongue?! It is a perfect complement to an already cozy and cute oxford! 


Speaking of cute, there are actually specks of shimmer in the suede! Hard to pick up on a photo, but it makes these sturdy shoes just a bit more feminine. So smart. The Hanah keeps your feet toasty, yet not too hot. Perfect for a brisk walk or inside winter wear.


Waldläufer uses only high-quality materials to create shoes with a flexible fit and clever design. That unique handcrafted skill can be both seen and felt on every pair of Waldläufers that I have worn. If you are looking for a new everyday casual or even a new pair of boots, visit Waldläufer.com to check out all of their options!

Erin Condren Wall Organization Center


Now that we are into October, I am also back in the classroom. This means I am also back to being busy and trying to keep everything organized. Erin Condren to the rescue! I have taken my office to the next level with Erin Condren’s newest desk organization product - the Wall Organization Center!


Designed with an organization expert, the Wall Organization Center will work for anyone. Families, teachers, couples, students ... it will fit seamlessly and stylishly into any home, classroom, dorm room, or wherever you need it. They allow you to create an instant central organization hub that will keep everyone organized.


I was gifted four different products (thanks EC) to complete my Wall Organization Center. I started with (1) the Signature Weekly Schedule Wall Organization Center. There are 20 Unique Wall Organization Center Options in either a black or white frame. I chose the weekly schedule with a customized message - leave a little sparkle wherever you go!


Expand the function and fashion of your Wall Organization Center with slide-on wall organizer accessories. No more lost keys, missing receipts or wandering writing tools! The three products I chose came bundled in the Wall Organization Cork Accessories Set, but they can also be purchased individually. The 3 Knob Key Holder (2), Pencil Cup (3), and the 13" Cork Strip (1) just slide onto the base. The Wall Organization Center measures 24x18 in size and requires some installation. However, we found the setup is incredibly simple!


This organization system is so smart! Not only is it incredibly practical, but it also elevates the decor of the room you display it in! The options are endless. I am using mine as a weekly calendar, but as you can see in the pic above, you can really taylor it to fit your needs.


Whether you need a chore chart, a monthly calendar, a habit tracker, a meal planner, you will need to use just use wet erase markers to write on the frame. Another great feature? The frame is interchangeable, so you can change the way you use it anytime you want. How smart! If you are new to Erin Condren, you can receive a $10 off coupon from Erin Condren via email by signing up here. How are you going to use your Erin Condren Wall Organization Center?



Pixi Beauty Week | Day 6 | Vitamin-C Collection

Thank you to our partner for sponsoring this post and to all of the brands that support this blog.


It is the last day of Pixi Beauty Week, but we are ending with one of my favorite collections from Pixi, it's the Vitamin-C Skincare Collection. The Vitamin-C craze has been popping up all over skincare brands as of late. It is easy to see why. Vitamin-C is known for its brightening effect and antioxidant benefits.


Summer may be on its way out, but you can keep your skin shining bright with these favorites. The pump on the Vitamin-C Juice Cleanser confused me at first. But then I realized it was a cleansing water meant to be applied with a cotton pad. This antioxidant cleansing water contains ferulic acid and probiotics help to preserve and protect the skin.


Love Pixi Glow Tonic? Of course, you do. But now Pixi offers several alternatives, one being Vitamin-C Tonic. This gentle exfoliating toner helps to brighten and protect. Luminosity is restored, skin tone evens out and pores are minimized.
