I hope everyone is doing well!
Today I’m discussing a few current events, fashion trends, and holiday weight gain!
We have experienced a ton of rain in the Schertz/SA area! Many areas being flooded. Flooding in general is a touchy subject. It’s touchy because some people don’t have flood insurance coverage. I slightly remember my insurance agent quickly skimming over that endorsement, and informing me of the higher price tag other than the actual coverage. The cost can be extremely pricey. Having piece of mind may be worth the price tag.
We are finally experiencing cooler weather in Texas, with cooler weather often means dry skin. On Saturday my skin was so dry that it was peeling. It’s funny because, I had no idea I was peeling like a snake….and no one told me. LOL! People often feel that saying something is mean or taboo. I would have said, girl whats up with your face, you’re peeling bad. That’s just me though! It wasn’t until I peeped in the mirror and noticed. The wind along with the cold wasn’t agreeing with my skin.
Immediately upon returning home, I washed my face with Kiehl’s Raw Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser. Having a quality cleanser is paramount. Don’t skimp out of your skin care routine. I have found that this cleanser works well while on Accutane. After cleansing my face, I moisturized with Cetaphil moisturizer. This moisturizer is fairly inexpensive compared to other brands, and delivers immediate results. Only apply a small amount!
I am super strict about skincare. I wear sunscreen EVERYDAY (Clarins) with or without make-up. I don’t have any signs of aging on my face…(my opinion) 🙂
If you’re not taking the necessary steps to take care of your skin, it will SHOW! Never go to bed with an unclean face, and never ever ever sleep in your make-up. I wash my face, apply a moisturizer, and then apply Retin-A Micro on top. Retin-A is no doubt the best kept secret! It’s a topical form of vitamin A, and it helps with sun spots, scars and fine lines and wrinkles.
Lately I have noticed a ton of people blogging, or wearing over the knee boots. Myself included! Find a pair that you like, and wait for it to go on sale at Macy’s. Don’t pay full price! Pick a pair that you can use for years to come. I am not a fan of shoes with patterns. This includes animal print. Animal prints look amazing on some people, but not this gal! Most of my shoes are nude, grey, black or brown. I have found extreme success with Steve Madden shoes. With proper storage, you can have shoes for years!
Here are a few of my favorites:
Steve Madden Gorgeous
Steve Madden Orabela
Ivanka Trump Sarena
Vince Camuto Booties
Don’t pay 25-50 dollars for a scarf! Unless you really love it! I found this dupe, (click here) on Amazon for $8-9 dollars. I have amazon prime so I didn’t have to pay for shipping. I received it in a week!
Holiday’s and Weight gain
The holidays are upon us! Have a plan to succeed in place. Don’t wait until January to start weight-loss, and fitness goals! Start today! I see tons of food posts on Instagram/FB, and it will only get more tempting as the holidays approach.
My goal for the holiday season is to not gain any weight! Not even 1 pound. My mind is ready, set, and go to accomplish this mission. What will be your plan? Post your plan for the upcoming holiday season in the comment section!
