Guess who’s back! I’ve been away for a little bit to enjoy some time with my family who came to visit from The Netherlands. We had a wonderful time! I was sad to see them go, but one of the things that keep me going, so to speak, is knowing that summer is here! I seriously live for the summer, it’s always been my favorite season. 🙂 I know for some of us, summer is the season of dread, because it’s also the season of during which you’re required to wear sunscreen every day. Warmer months naturally mean more time
We all like to look and dress the part, but it’s hard to know what that means when traveling to another culture. While everyone has their own sense of style, some things are off the table when you take a trip abroad. Today, let’s look at 4 clothing choices which will raise eyebrows in Southeast Asia. source pic 1. Immodest clothing This would be a little garish wherever you’re headed, but it’s particularly looked down upon to overexpose yourself in southern Asia. As 1Cover points out in their guide to Thailand, topless or nude beaches and items of dress which

Long time no see! I’m here though. I haven’t been posting any makeup looks, because my looks have been pretty much the same. Boring, I know! I’ve been using my (all time) favorites products, but I’ve also been using makeup that I’m simply trying to use up. What I’ve been really into lately, is experimenting more with false eyelashes! I don’t wear false lashes every day, but I do like them when I go out at night. It’s amazing how something simple like eyelashes can change your whole look. I do have to admit, I still have a hard time

Last week the kids and I had the pleasure to attend the grand opening of the new LEGOLAND Castle Hotel at LEGOLAND California Resort. Along with hundreds of media and special guests, we experienced a LEGOLAND-style royal ceremony that included knights on horses, a little girl squire and boy knight plus a hawk that flew the key to the Castle to Merlin the wizard. So much fun! 😀 Grand Opening of the LEGOLAND California Castle Hotel The new hotel is everything you expect it to be and more. It’s conveniently located right next to the entrance of the park, right
All of us need a certain amount of sleep every day, and while most of us are grateful to lie down in bed, pull the covers up and go to sleep after a busy day, our sleeping hours are much more important than most of us realize. Our sleep patterns will differ from person to person, with some needing only a few hours of sleep to satisfy their body’s needs, while others will need a full 8 hours or more. Additionally, some of us are very light sleepers who will come awake at the slightest noise, while others sleep so
The weekend is coming up! What are you guys doing? We’re thinking about going to Chuck E. Cheese’s again, one of our favorite places for games and activities for kids. 🙂 We went last Saturday and had so much fun! I’ll add some pictures below. Mason, who’ll be 6 years old in July, loves it. Secretly, I actually think my hubby loves all the games even more than he does… lol We are all excited to visit again because select restaurants in the San Diego area are offering Unlimited Games and our local Chuck E. Cheese’s is one of them.
Spring is here! Spring means the sun is showing itself more now. Spring for me also means Spring cleaning! I’ve been going through my makeup and skincare products and getting rid of everything I’ve never used or will never use. I’ve also been simplifying my regimen. A product that I’ve completely eliminated is makeup primer. I started using a new moisturizer that has replaced my previous moisturizer AND primer: Olay Whips. This moisturizer is different than your average lightweight moisturizer: it’s ideal before makeup because it works just like a primer. Some call it a “no primer, primer” and I
I’m back! The other day I showed you guys my favorite products. I mentioned that my focus lately has been on ‘resetting’ my skin and that is exactly what I want to talk to you about today. As you know, I’ve been trying to get my skin back into shape. So far it’s been going great and I am loving the results. 🙂 I thought this would be a good time to touch base with you guys and tell you about my current regimen. As you might recall, I completed the Olay 28 Day Challenge. After this, I continued using
Hi guys! Remember me? I’ve been in a slump lately. There’s lots going on and up until today I had no motivation whatsoever to update this blog. However, I’ve been missing it more and more, so here I am! 🙂 I was sent a package from IT Cosmetics with a collection of (new) products to try. Love it! The set is actually on QVC right now as Today’s Special Value, so I thought this would be a good time to share my pictures and thoughts. The 5 piece collection is called: IT Cosmetics’ New Year, New Confidence in Your Skin!
Hi guys! I’m back! As you know I am taking the Olay 28 Day Challenge. This is an easy-to-follow daily skincare routine comprised of the best Olay products that have been clinically proven to make skin look younger in 28 days. I ended up replacing my facial moisturizer and eye cream with the products pictured below. I’m happy to say that I’ve almost completed the challenge. 🙂 Olay wants women to take the #Olay28Day Challenge to prove to them that using Olay can leave them with visibly healthy skin. I’m getting towards at the end, so I thought this would
