Three tips to healthy skin

One of my 2017 goals was to take better care of my skin. Growing up in a house full of boys, I never paid much attention to the products that I used on my face. I’m now 30 years old, and I’m starting to realize that I no longer have youth on my side and that I have to be more intentional when it comes to taking care of my skin.  Honestly, as a mom of three, it’s easy to not prioritize myself. When I’m able to sneak in a quick shower I sometimes (most of the time) just use soap to wash my face.  Gasp! I know I shouldn’t, but time is scarce. You know what else is scarce? Sleep! I would love to say that getting enough sleep is one of my top 3 steps to healthy skin, but at this point in my life, sleep is just not in the cards for me.

The good news is that we’re into May, and I’m finally feeling on top of my skincare routine which involves daily wash and moisturizing. On top of that, there are a few things that I do to help my skin remain as healthy as possible, and I wanted to share them with you!

happy weekend and some links

family lifestyle blog

Somewhere between studying for my next test, running around a soon-to-be 1 year old and DIY’ing a few home projects, I decided it was time for a much needed inspiration break. Who doesn’t get inspired by this simple yet elegant floral arrangement featured on Style me pretty ?? These flowers would look so pretty just about anywhere.  So… here’s to rebelling against my never ending to-do list…

  • How pretty is this Anthropology video?? oh the colors!!
  • I’m working on a few DIY projects.. thinking about this one  project for over our bed, which would go perfect with our siluette DIY from last week
  • I’ve never been a fan of Oreos, I think it started when I had braces and got everything I ate stuck on them… but this grown up version looks out of this world! Maybe dunked in milk??
  • I love designing out nightstand to include functionality and style. Ale thinks they’re too feminine, but I love the look of Emily Henderson’s designs.
  • Ran across this blog the other day called The well traveled womanLOVE!!!
  • I wonder if I’d workout or fall asleep in one of these cocoons. Either way they look absolutely fun!
  • This link is good to keep handy during those times all you have in your fridge are eggs!

Have a wonderful and inspiring weekend friends!!!
