Anti-Aging Cold Plasma Skin Care

Anti-Aging Cold Plasma Skin Care

 

Of all the things I enjoyed most about California, it was the dry air (the constant views don’t hurt either). Coming from a humid climate and taking in the dry desert air was something I really enjoyed. Some days the air in Florida feels like a wet hairdryer being pointed directly onto your face. I was sure to get a fresh blow-dry before leaving and embrace this dry warm desert air I’ve heard so much about.

 My skin, on the other hand, was not as thrilled. I noticed my makeup looked and felt different in this new climate. As soon as I got home I knew it was time to amp up the hydration factor. I tried the new Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly my skin took to it. It can take up to three weeks to see a difference, but I noticed it right away. My skin drank up every ounce of it morning and night until it was able to self-regulate. I’d heard of the hydrating qualities in this anti-aging serum before, but now I was a believer.
Anti-Aging Skin Care
The Cold Plasma Plus line isn’t heavy or greasy. It’s light and smooth texture was a breeze to put on, a little bit really went a long way and I was glad mostly at night. The last thing I want to do after wiping off a face full of makeup is add a heavy moisturizer. This lightweight serum allowed my skin to breathe and kept my pillowcase clear of any greasy residue.

Perricone is a trusted brand some of my family had been using for months and I was glad to finally give it a chance. It helped balance my skin after the dry-heat exposure on my trip and brought it back to life. I notice a huge difference in the way my concealer and foundation lay on my skin after moisturizing daily.

Keeping Cozy and Stylish with Cuddleduds

Keeping Cozy and Stylish with Cuddleduds

 

 These days I appreciate comfort more than anything. In fact, I’ll put it above most things on my priority list. Are these shoes comfortable? Will I be suffering within an hour? If so, it’s a no-go. I’ll admit I get excited when my hubby calls me and says he’s hanging with the fellas and watching the game. Before he can hang up my fuzzy socks are on the tea is already steeping as I settle down for a cozy read.
As I’ve aged, many parts of my life have evolved, and most recently, this includes my pajamas. I won’t lie in saying that I have a really bad rap in this department. Since I’ve really always put comfort first in this arena, my pajamas have been dubbed “homeless chic.” I hang on to comfy shirts way too long, I’m surprised if people notice tiny holes, and let’s just say I’ve been able to somehow wear down a pair of sweats until you can almost see through them (don’t judge).

 I decided that approaching forty this could no longer be my burden to bear. So I’ve spent some time purging ( a constant state I’m in since reading Marie Kondo) and replenishing my drawers with pieces that are both cozy… or won’t get me on the Worst Dressed List of 2018. In fact, my new favorite cozy winter thermal set Cuddleduds by ClimateRight has been known to make its way to car line while dropping off the kids, or at Walmart (where they are sold) when picking up a few items for the house. Besides, I personally believe that every comfy thermal or sweater should have a loophole for your thumbs. It’s my ultimate sign of comfort!
Cuddleduds
I love both the comfort and the convenience of these pieces so much that I’ve picked up a few pairs to share with family. My mom just moved to Texas and is experiencing her first winter after living as a Floridian for the past twenty years. The velour thermal suits are just the ticket to keeping her cozy and warm, a great gift that says, “I love you, and I care how you look and feel when you go to sleep.” 🙂
The perfect lounge-wear that I have decided to take outdoors because as I said before, comfort is key these days! You can find Cuddleduds by ClimateRight in the Women’s pajama aisle at your local Wal-Mart. They even sell pajamas for young girls, so all you mom of girls can match and stay cozy at the same time. Here’s to staying warm and cozy on your most stylish pair of jammies. If you see me in the supermarket, don’t worry, it’ll be our little secret.

DIY Guest Bathroom Holiday Valet Tray

With the holidays comes lots of guests. Whether you are hosting a large party, or keep a steady stream of intimate dinners between friends, it’s always nice to make your guests feel welcome. I usually aim for making them feel right at home, which is nice… but, on one of my recent stays in New Orleans I experienced one of the most fantastic displays in a hotel lobby bathroom. It was literally the most gorgeous restroom I’d ever experienced.

The layout was fabulous, but what really made it special was that upon walking in the smell was intoxicating. I felt like I had just been transported to a spa, I was instantly soothed. This got me thinking, perhaps I could get my guests to feel the same way. I imagine it’s a fun surprise to walk into a bathroom and suddenly feel at ease. Who knows, my guests may not want to come out!

Holiday Valet Tray

I created this festive valet tray to provide my guests with whatever they may need. I know whenever I visit a hotel/restaurant I am always grateful when there is service available with a spritz of perfume, or a little extra hairspray. So, I decided to add a few personal items to each layer of my tray.

  • I keep a few Poo~Pourri sprays in my bathroom at all times, particularly when I’m hosting guests. There is nothing worse than walking into an unpleasant odor from a previous visitor. On the flip side, there may not be anything worse than being afraid to use the restroom for fear you may be found out! The festive Secret Santa fragrance is by far my favorite during the holidays. These scents are all potent without being overwhelming, with spicy and citrus notes that smell delicious, even though its poo were dealing with here. Besides, its adorable packaging fits right in with my holiday valet tray.
  • To Stay Fresh: I added some mints, gum, floss, deodorant, or candy canes in case anyone wanted to freshen up before returning to the par-tay.
  • To stay primped: I added hair ties, bobby pins, clips, and hairspray.
  • Bonus: I added hand lotion and sanitizer gel for my germophobes.

When you look and smell your best, you feel your best, simple as that! I like to think this may be one of the reasons the convo has been excellent at any of our gatherings.

Holiday Valet Tray

You can find Poo~Pourri in an assortment of scents like:

  • Secret Santa (Cinnamon+Vanilla+Citrus) | 2oz (100-Use Bottle) or 4oz (200-Use Bottle)

If you’ve never experienced these sprays they are a miracle worker. You can put the matches way ladies, these can really do the trick. They consist of Poo~Pourri’s pure blend of NATURAL ESSENTIAL OILS. Simply spray it into the toilet water before sitting and the film created above the surface will envelop your… well, you know. Completely masking any odor, think of it as a barrier of protection for your poo. Once I found these I seriously did not want to live without them. I keep on handy in every bathroom in the house, particularly the boys’ bathroom. Ugh.
