New Discovery

Nate said to me “I think it’s funny how you’ve just now discovered, books can be good.”  This is after I’d read a book all night and all day because I couldn’t possibly do anything else until I knew how the story ended.  Too bad it is part of a trilogy, so I got no resolve at the end of the first book!  But the first book was so dang good, I literally couldn’t put it down and even when I tried, all I thought about were the characters.  Which book was I reading?

When I choose to read this book, I’d never heard of it.  I didn’t know anything about it except that it had over 11,000 ratings on ibooks.  So I thought, why not?  Even posted a status update on my Facebook.  Little did I know, how raunchy and sexual this whole book is!  So be forewarned…I’m glad I wasn’t because I may not have started it 🙂  Even though the raunch level is quite high, there is something about this book, the writing, the character development, that just keeps you wanting to know more.  My one complaint would be, that the author used the word “murmur” way too much.  Can’t wait to start 50 Shades Darker!

After I finished the book and returned from la la land.  Nate had Sunday afternoon off, so he took me for a boat ride, and did some fishing.  It was awesome, relaxing, and we had the most beautiful weather you could ask for to be out on the lake.  Nate caught a catfish, guess what we will be eating at some point this week?

Aint he cute? (Nate not the fish!)
Like my boat shoes?

 I’ve tried out so many face products, I could open up a convenience store in my bathroom.  I’ve been on the search for the perfect facial cleansers and products for what feels like my whole life.  Looking for the products I can use for more than a week with out drying out my skin or the complete opposite.  That’s been my problem, some products work great for a few days then all the sudden, they just stop or take a turn for the worst…anyone else have that happen?  Well, I finally found products that I’ve been using for an extended period of time and have had great results and am borderline obsessed!!

Visibly Bright™ Daily Facial Cleanser

I use this on my face every morning.  Something about the scent itself just perks me right up.  It leaves my face feeling clean, smooth, and ready for the day.  After about 4 days of use, I noticed a HUGE difference in my skin tone and was blemish-free.  

After cleaning my face I always use this on a cotton ball… It helps remove any impurities the cleanser may have missed and doesn’t remove any of the moisture in my face.  The alcohol-free is the trick to this one!  And after the toner, comes the moisturizing lotion.

Alcohol-Free Toner



A key to having clear, smooth, even-toned skin is exfoliating.  You can wash and moisten your face all day long and still not have the perfectly soft skin I know you all want.  I’ve found that exfoliating your skin at least 1-2 times a week works wonders!  Be sure to put on lotion afterwards because exfoliating does dry out your skin.  I’ve fallen madly in love with Aveeno’s POSITIVELY AGELESS® Resurfacing Scrub.  Compared to other exfoliating scrubs, this one seems to be more gentle and really gets down into your face and buffs it.  You can feel the grit in the scrub, but other exfoliators I’ve used in the past, the grit almost felt like huge beads and didn’t really get the job done.  This stuff is like what fine sand paper does to wood, leaves you with a smooth, even, clean, and perfect surface! (yea girl, I just compared your face to a piece of wood!)

Just a few of my latest and greatest discoveries 🙂  And for the record, I was NOT contacted by any of these companies to review their products.  I went to the drug store on my own mission and succeeded.  So I wanted to share in case any of you are looking for great products to solve your skin problems too!  xoxo

Now, back to food… 🙂

  1. Thanks for the recommendations! I use Neutrogena make-up products (foundation, blush, lip gloss, etc)…made that switch a couple years ago instead of the more expensive stuff from Belk that I was using, and have been very pleased with all make-up products used – so will have to try these facial cleansers. 🙂

  2. Whoops, published before I was finished! The CeraVe lotion is great because it is time-released which keeps your face moisturized throughout the night and it is very light & not greasy at all!
