Darlings, isn’t it just unbelievable that we’re already in 2020? Ten years have gone by with a snap of our fingers. Doesn’t it feel like just yesterday we were entering the year 2000? Time is a wonderful and crazy thing.

Well, with a new decade comes New Year’s resolutions, a desire to grow and achieve new things as well as a desire to wash away the old and bring in the new.

Taking Care of Our Skin

Something that I believe we should always take care of every single day is our skin! If we’ve neglected it, or experienced any sort of hard elements, our skin–especially our face–tends to show it. So, I started thinking to myself, what would be one of the best gifts I could give you to start this New Year off right?

    I’ve used a Clarisonic for years to cleanse my face and really notice the difference in my skin. Also, use Purity by Philosophy…takes all your makeup off without drying out your skin. And my go to moisturizer is Oil of Olay Total Effects. Love it❣️
