Clarisonic Mia 2 | Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”901207″]

I know, I know, everybody has been raving about the Clarisonic for a few years now, and I’m a little late to the discovery of its amazing-ness. But I was never sure if it was worth spending the money on when there were so many less expensive options out there. Spoiler Alert: The Clarisonic is most definitely worth it (and it’s currently on sale)!

I used the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System for about a year before Cody surprised me with the Clarisonic Mia 2 (my best friend, Jordan, had been trying to get me to buy one for years, and when Cody needed help picking out my Christmas gifts, she told him I needed the Clarisonic. Thanks Jordan! 🙂 ) I did really like the Olay system. I noticed that it made my skin a lot softer, and my skin felt cleaner than if I were to just wash my face with my hands. For only $40 it’s totally worth it. But it still doesn’t compare to the Clarisonic Mia 2.

The Clarisonic gives such a deeper clean than other products. Prior to using the Clarisonic, I had been getting Read More

I’m back from my week’s vacation and it was so much fun! It’s an eleven hour drive for us and let me tell you, these headphones were a lifesaver for Cody! I like to sing along to the radio when I’m on road trips. And by sing, I mean turn the music up really loud and yell along with the song. For some reason, my beautiful singing voice gives Cody a headache, and he always Read More

When I think of denim skirts, I always imagine the ones that were all the rage in the early 2000’s. Do you remember those? Not cute! In middle school, my sister, cousin, and I all had the same skirt, and yes, we would wear it to school on the same day so we all matched. We were super cool like that. 😉 Looking back at the pictures years later, I vowed never to wear another denim skirt in my life…and then this skirt (longer version here) happened and I broke my vow. But denim skirts have come a long way since then, so I feel like it was ok to break the vow. 

Want to know another silly thing about me…my watches are never set at correct time. Cell phones are for telling time, watches are for looking pretty…ok, and they’re for telling time too. But mostly Read More

Why does everyone talk about dry winter skin, but you never hear about dry summer skin? I live in the dry, dry, dry and hot, hot, hot California summer sun, and my skin gets so dry in the summer! I guess that’s the price I pay for not living in the humidity. My hair thanks me (no frizz!), and my skin punishes me. Needless to say, moisturizing is a must!

I started using bliss products to moisturize with after discovering the bliss Fabulips ‘Pout’-O-Matic Lip Perfecting System about a year ago and falling in love with it! I figured if it works for the dry skin on my lips, why not try other bliss products to moisturize my body? Bliss offers powerful products so you can achieve spa-like treatments at home. They even offer a Read More
