Exuviance Age Reverse Hand Rejuvenator: Don’t Let Your Hands Tell Your Age

I have such trouble keeping the skin on my hands under control.  Between the constant hand-washing/sanitizing, house cleaning and other chores, and sun exposure, my hands have suffered.  And they are even worse in the winter!  That’s why I am staying on top of my hand care this summer with Exuviance Age Reverse Hand Rejuvenator.

Exuviance Age Reverse Hand Rejuvenator: Don't Let Your Hands Tell Your Age

Why Exuviance Age Reverse Hand Rejuvenator?

I am not yet middle-aged, but I’m unfortunately not a spring chicken either, and I don’t want my hands to make me look older than I am.  I need something on my side here!  And while I am pretty vigilant about my facial skincare, I often don’t care for my hands that well.  No matter how much lotion or cream I slap onto the backs of my hands, it just seems inevitable that I will wash it off within 10 minutes.  That’s super irritating for both myself and the skin on my hands. read more

Casual Chic Summer Outfit for Daytime

Now, guys.  This is a HIGHLY functional casual chic summer outfit.  I hope you’re not offended by my level of casualness, but I just cannot get anything done even if I am remotely thinking about how uncomfortable I am.  I don’t care if it is a cami riding up, a bra strap bothering me, or shoes that hinder my usual gait by just a margin, I cannot have ANY of it.  That’s why you don’t see me in heels very much.  I try to make more comfortable shoes look chic and just own it. read more

Makeup Products I Could Never Live Without Again

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter

For years, I used the Clinique Chubby Stick highlighter and thought it was the best thing ever.  But for Christmas last year, my hubby surprised me with the Mac Nutcracker Sweet Bronze Pigment and Glitter Kit.  This just opened up for me a whole new world of highlighters that weren’t liquids and weren’t sticks.  Once I saw how I could make my features sparkle with the bronze pigments, I knew I had to expand my collection. read more
