Part 4, Natural Skincare Series:)

Good morning everyone, we made it through half the week already! Can you tell I’m excited for the weekend:) Today is part 4 of my natural personal skincare series and we are talking about night time nourishment for our skin while we sleep. Getting a good night’s sleep is essential to achieve healthy and glowing skin. As we start to age it’s good to give our skin a natural boost to help with the process our bodies go through while we sleep.

I am enjoying this TimeWise repair night treatment with retinol and this mask.

Both of these products are paraben, phthalate and fragrance free except the Burt’s Bees mask contains natural fragrance which I love. A lot of manufacturers will try to slip things in your products under the term fragrance so it is very important to read the labels and make sure it says natural fragrance such as lavender, citral or limonene. Both the night cream and mask are also ethylene brassylate free. The Burt’s Bees overnight mask is 99% all natural, with only a touch of sodium benzoate, yay!

They are both very affordable and get great reviews. Retinol A is great for our skin to help with the aging process but sun exposure should be limited when using it so it’s the perfect compliment for our face as we sleep. It’s the purest form of vitamin A and Mary Kay has formulated the perfect amount in this night time treatment cream so that our bodies absorb it slowly for maximum benefits. The Burt’s Bees mask may be used when needed. I use it once a week but it’s completely safe to use as much as you wish and it’s great for hands too. Dry hands also make us look older so it’s important to keep them moisturized. It also contains avocado oil & prebiotics.

Both the Mary Kay Naturally skincare line along with this TimeWise repair night treatment with retinol and these Burt’s Bees products are a fraction of the cost of other natural cosmetics such as Beautycounter or Rodan + Fields. There is no minimum order ever or monthly subscription service fees. You can purchase it based on your needs, which I love, so it fits in my budget and I still get the benefits of safe natural products inside and out, wrinkles be gone ha ha. If you’re interested in viewing this short video, I’d love to have you join me as I share how I use these products.

Date Night With My Man & Fall Makeup Trend Look

It’s Friday, yay for the weekend!! After a long and busy week, I love to spend some time with my husband to keep the magic alive. We live on a golf course and lake, so one of our favorite places to go is the club house. They have delicious food and gorgeous views of the lake from their outdoor patio area.

My husband loved this dress that I got from Amazon. It’s the Berydress women’s vintage v-neck sheath casual faux wrap dress. It comes in many colors. It is extremely soft and flattering. I think wrap dresses are universally flattering on all figure types. For size reference only, I am wearing the small, am 5’9 and usually a size 8:)

I love that the v-neck is modest so you will get a lot of use out of this dress. If you are going out for a night on the town you can adjust to show a little more ooh la la but if you are wanting to wear to church you may tie it a little higher for more coverage.

From this angle you can see that it creates an amazing waistline. I paired with my leopard wedges from Kohls.

Leopard Shoes

It’s also long enough so you can move and groove to whatever activities you have planned. It also makes your back side look good ha ha:) I also love to add a little sparkle to my hair on date nights.

Isn’t that sunset by the lake gorgeous. I just love the view up here. I kept my jewelry at a minimum to let the dress steal the show. I paired with a multi-tone watch, my simple stud earrings and my silver cross necklace.

You can see my jewelry better in this picture that my daughter took when we got back home. After all these years, he still makes me laugh everyday!

Makeup trends for fall 2019 include bringing the monochromatic looks not only to your outfits but to your makeup choices. I kept my lips, eyes and cheeks in the same berry family. Burgundy eyeliner and colored mascara is Hot Hot Hot this year. To incorporate this, I used this burgundy eyeliner from Sephora at JCPenney. It’s the Sephora brand in the waterproof matte collection. This stuff stays put. No smears or mess. It’s wonderful. I paired it with the brand new dark burgundy mascara by L’oreal. It’s a fun way to participate in this trend without being over the top.

Well, here’s to a happy and fun weekend. Whether it is going out with your husband, friends, taking the kids to the park or just lounging around the house with a Netflix binge, I hope it’s enjoyable.
