Skin Care

skin care

I don’t like self maintenance. Its just never been a strong suit of mine. My gray roots are always showing, my eyebrows grow into one singular eye brown more often that I care to admit, I get manicures when there is nothing left for me to chip off myself, and I use the most basic skin care regimen possible: cetaphil face wash/moisturizer. Its bad I know. So lately I’ve been trying to step up my game a little bit. The first big step for me was admitting how dull my skin has been looking. I got a facial before my wedding and I couldn’t believe the difference it made, but it also made me realize how wrinkled my skin has gotten. So while I’ve made a commitment to get two facials a year (still probably not enough) I have also changed my moisturizer to an anti-aging one that my mom swears by.


It’s been life changing. Honestly, I never believed in this stuff. I figured it was Cetaphil or Botox and anything between was just a crock. Turns out that couldn’t have been more false. They aren’t paying me for this (although they should), I just want to share my experience with Prevage because I wish I had started using this stuff years ago! It has completely changed my skin in a matter of weeks. My forehead creases are almost completely gone. I noticed a HUGE difference within the first week. I have been using both the day and night creams and let me tell you, it is the best money I’ve spent. Its expensive, I’m not going to lie, but if you are looking for a nonsurgical solution to aging, dull and/or wrinkled skin, this stuff works.. at the very least it did for me.

Apple Picking

Yesterday I spent the afternoon at the apple orchard with my some of my girlfriends. It was the perfect way to spend a beautiful fall afternoon. We drove an hour outside of downtown Chicago and ran around the orchard like little kids. We filled bags with apples, bought donuts and cider and I threatened everyone with a sing-a-long to 90s rap. I was reminded of how much I love this season, and even more so, how much I love unexpected activities with my friends.
