Empty Products #21


So I promised I wouldn't save the next empties post until I had 4 blog posts worth of products to talk about...I may have stretched the truth just a little...I LIED people! I LIED!

I have a valid excuse, I promise! I won't bore you with said excuse, but just know that it was definitely justifiable and involved moving 6 hours from my old home with a bag full of "trash"...

Anywho, there is a silver lining in all of this - I made a video and uploaded it to the YouTubes! Yup, I did you all a solid and filmed myself rambling on and on...and on about all of the products I used up since the last mahoosive empties post (or 4)! Check it! If you make it all the way to the end, you get a thumbs up from me!

What have you used up lately? Anything I should run out and buy.right.now?!

Get That Summer Glow!


The Summer sun is waning and the smell of Fall is in the air, but that doesn't mean you can't still have that Summer Glow! To get the most out of what's left of the season, I thought it would be fun to share my favorite ways to achieve Goddess status.

1. Hydrate: THE most important part of my Summer "skincare" routine, and for any season really, is hydration! I drink water 90% of the time. I actually enjoy it, but for those of you that don't so much - try it with some fresh lemon slices. A cute cup never hurts either :)

2. Nourish:  I love eating fresh fruits and veggies during the Summer. I crave salads with avocado and BLT's all season long - garden fresh tomatoes please! I seriously think I could eat both daily and never get tired of them, but if you need a little more variety in your life Aloha.com has some really awesome healthy recipes to try out (my favorite, the Berry Tropical Smoothie Bowl - yum!).

3. Protect:  We would be lying to ourselves if we said we didn't enjoy basking in the warm sun during the Summer, but the key is to protect our skin while we do it. My favorite SPF is the Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Oil from Supergoop! It smooths on easily, smells nice (not that typical sunscreen smell) and doesn't leave you with that sticky feeling - yuck!

4. Exfoliate:  Every night, all year round, I use a chemical exfoliator. I find that the manual versions just irritate my skin and make it very unhappy. My favorite are the Facial Radiance Pads from First Aid Beauty. They are super gentle, never upset my skin, but always leave me with the glow of a younger me. What's not to love about that!

5. Glow:  If all else fails, and you need a little extra umpf, fake that Summer Glow with Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs*! It comes in a range of colors so you can find one that matches your skin tone, and it is super easy to use. I'm a little intimidated by fake tanning, but this goes on smooth and dries quickly. You don't even have to worry about it coming off on your clothes! At the end of the day, it washes off and you are ready for a brand new day :)

What are your favorite ways to Get the Glow during the Summer? Do you have any favorite healthy recipes? I'd love to know! Thanks for stopping by :)
