Morning, Noon and Night Skincare with Dr Brandt

Sometimes the other side of 30 isn't so great y'all - especially when it comes to skin. I have to worry about blemish flare ups and anti aging and dry skin at the same time. So, you can imagine how excited I was to receive a box full of goodies from Dr Brandt.
 
 
 
Typically, I start off my day using the Needles No More 3-D Filler Mask , this one is one I purchased myself earlier this year. The name of this one can be a little confusing because to me when I think mask I think something you wear for 15 to 30 minutes and then wash off but this is a little different - you can wear it all night but it seems like more people wear it during the day. The "mask" basically fills in the little lines on your face - hence why there's not more need for needles. I typically put this on after my moisturizer in the place of a primer - my makeup goes on very smooth and it doesn't clog my pores. A little goes a long way too, I still have plenty of product left in my jar after using for two months. At $95 it's a little pricey initial spend but considering how long it's lasting and its effectiveness I really can't complain about the price.
 

During the day I have a cup of water with the Antioxidant Water Booster. For such a small ratio of booster to water I've been very pleased with how much this changes the taste of the water; I have the hardest time drinking enough water so anything to make that easier on me is worth it alone since we all know drinking enough water is great for your skin - this gives the water a sweet light tea taste, only it has no sugar or calories. The booster is loaded with anti oxidants including goji berry extract - goji berries are pretty expensive on their own so drinking this instead of eating them is a great idea in my opinion.  
 
 
One a week at night I use the Magnetight mask to really give my skin a deep cleanse - this one is fun because the mask never dries onto the skin, it always stays a bit tacky and when the time is done it's removed with a magnet. This mask also leaves behind a light oily residue which I just massage into the skin and use as my moisturizer that night. A little also goes a long way on this one and there are several size jars available so you can spend $24 instead of $75 at once if that how you prefer to shop.
 
 
The rest of the nights of the week I use the Hydro Biotic Sleep Mask. I was super skeptical when I received this product but it's not like a regular mask - it's super light, in fact the jar practically feels empty when you pick it up. I spread a thin layer across my face and let it soak I before going to sleep - this has been great at getting rid of my winter dry skin. I even used it on my husband's super flaky forehead and he woke up with the flakes gone - if I'm being honest it bothers me more than him so I was glad to share the product. At $52 a jar I think this is pretty reasonable for a mask  / nighttime moisturizer and I plan on purchasing again.
 
I've always been very impressed with the Dr Brandt line and these products were no exception; maybe being over 30 isn't so terrible after all!
 
PS: you can check out my entire nighttime routine on my Instagram account in the stories under beauty highlights. I tend to mix save and splurge items in my beauty process and in my routine I'm showing some of the items I save on so that I can splurge for high quality items.

Holiday Mail

I love sending Christmas cards, I also love getting Christmas / holiday cards. Growing up Christmas cards were serious business. My Mom kept a book of who she sent them to and who sent one to us, three years and no card you were off the list. It's something my friends and I discuss today, seems like lots of moms ran their card list that way and now I find myself being a little less strict but keeping up with my list the same way. You would think that by 29 I'd have a pretty firm list of people I send Christmas cards to, but nope, it continues to change every year. Of course, the fact that I lost the disk with all the addresses from the prior year hurt a lot, that address list had every single person who attended my mom's memorial service or sent a card, it was a very handy but sad way to keep up with my non immediate family. A few years ago I use to think that I'd send a card to anyone that if I was to become engaged would make it onto my wedding guest list. Now that…

Loft Plus Size In Store Launch

Loft recently launched the plus size collection size 16 to 26 in 50 stores across the US. Although I will make a few exceptions I really prefer to shop in person to try on items so I was very excited to hear my local store would be one of the 50 locations offering plus sizes. The Carriage Crossing location in Collierville, TN is the only location in the entire state to feature the collection in store and I was on hand to celebrate in full force at the recent launch party.

The team at Loft Carriage Crossing is so sweet and set up the sweetest in-store celebration.

Cupcakes by Buttercup brought the A game with the sweets - these are so moist and tasty!

Ehblooms provided the most beautiful bouquets in the perfect colors to celebrate fall fashion Sarah Howard with Limelife provided makeovers which was really fun. This was my first time experiencing this makeup line and I loved the pigmentation of the eye shadows - here's my finished look:
But of course we were all there for some fab…

Go WILD, Y'all

I'm writing this post with a serious case of the Mondays as I'm recovering from Go Wild this past week. Go Wild is the annual conference run by the Wild for Planners group and it is so much fun! This year's conference was in Nashville and while there is was announced that 2018 will be in Austin, TX. In addition to bringing planner enthusiasts together this event also presents the opportunity to hear from great speakers, meet planner  / planner goodies suppliers and the part that people to notice the most - awesome swag.   I first found out about the group last year when some planner girls I followed posted on instagram about the conference. To an outsider it looks like oh fun, planner girls gathering and getting tons of swag - I want to go! But the reality is it's so much for than that and to be perfectly honest if you're only interested in the swag you'd be better off staying home and going on a shopping spree. Since everyone wants to know the most though wha…

Easy At Home Teeth Whitening

Recently I was asked to submit a headshot and y'all I was so embarrassed - my teeth were yellow! So I decided to use the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system to take care of it - sure I could just edit my photos to make my teeth look white but I'd rather have a bright white IRL smile.
Over the years I have used many whitening products - toothpaste, lights, strips and make at home trays but the reality is no matter how great the solution is getting it to stay on the teeth is the key to whitening and there's simply no match for a custom fit tray - which is exactly what Smile Brilliant offers.

In order to get a custom tray without having to visit the dentist  Smile Brilliant provides the materials needed to make molds of the teeth at home to be sent off for fitting. When I received my kit it came with all the instructions and enough materials to make three molds - this way if I got it wrong on the first try it was no big deal - I had enough materials to try again. Howeve…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…
