8.31.13: Our Wedding Day...

On August 31, 2013 Colin and I were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake City LDS temple. It was such a special day for both of us. Definitely the best and happiest day! Everyday since then has made me love him even more.

How To Keep Your Skin Clear When Going Back To School...

When I was going to college I would always get so stressed (and excited) about classes, friends, homework and if I was going to be late to all my classes the first week. All that stress would cause my skin to break out and I hated it! Who wants to have blemished skin the very first week of classes?

I found 3 products that really helped keep my skin in check.
I used Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub  & Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser a week before and the week of my first week of school to help with any active breakouts, and to prevent further breakouts. It gave my skin the extra deep clean when it needed it.

VIIcode Oxygen Eye Mask For Dark Circles...

Since I have gotten older and have gotten more familiar with my skin, I have noticed that I have dark circles under my eyes. (Thank goodness for concealer!) 

One of my favorite ways to help with my dark circles have been adding the VIIcode Oxygen Eye Mask for dark circles into my beauty routine. They are specifically for dark circles and target my problem areas.
