So we’re ready to get real with you all. Just how real? Don’t worry... we’re not going to share anything too crazy. :) We just want to give you an insight into our lives – our likes/dislikes, what we’re wearing, and our current obsessions.
(*Warning* You may be tempted to go on a shopping spree after you finish reading this blog. Because, well, we’re obsessed with some AWESOME things.)
Hey everyone. Steph here! My husband and I have three wonderful, active kids, so I’m always on the go. (Don’t even ask me how many basketball games I’ve attended within the past month hehe). That’s why I like to keep things simple and fresh - from my skincare to my style! Here are the things that keep me smiling on the daily.
Can’t live without... Coffee. As I mentioned, my schedule can get extremely busy (it comes with the mom territory) so coffee is my best friend. I’m particularly crazy about the Dunkin Donuts Cinnamon Coffee Roll blend.
My 2018 goals... Drinking more water AND limiting sweets. Easier said then done, I know. That’s why I drink Izze. These sparkling juices come in a variety of different fruit flavors, so I can satisfy my sweet tooth and hydrate at the same time.
My skincare splurge... Rodan + Fields. Developed by dermatologists, all their products are backed by clinical studies. And the results? Simply amazing.
When I want skincare products on a budget... Pixi skincare. And if you’re not an online shopper, you find their products at your local Target.
Painting my nails with... Gelmoment nail polish. With this nail polish, I can give myself a shellac manicure that rivals any manicure I could get in a salon.
Obsession... Chap stick. Midwest winters are hard on lips, am I right? That’s why Burt’s Bees Lip Balm is my go-to.
What I’m wearing... Tom’s. They’re cute AND Tom’s gives a pair of shoes to a child in need when you purchase a pair for yourself. It’s a clear win-win in my book. Check out these Del Rey sneakers – I love to wear them with skinny jeans, a graphic tee and a cardigan!
When I’m ready to unwind... Moscow mules. And they’re so easy to make! Just check out this recipe.
Time for me to chime in! This past November, my family grew by one - my husband and I now have two amazing boys! Needless to say, my family requires a lot of my time and attention at the moment. However, I also know how important it is for me to continue to take time for myself. Here’s an insider’s look into my life – my goals, habits, and the products that keep me feeling joyful even when life gets a little crazy.
Obsession.... Chap stick. (An obsession that my sister and I share.) My current favorites include Rosebud Perfume Co.’s Strawberry Lip Balm and Lypsyl’s Moisturizing Lip Balm. And no matter which one I wear during the day, I always put on Rodan + Field’s Lip Renewing Serum before heading to bed.
My 2018 goals... Lose the baby weight and meal prep every Sunday. To keep myself on track, I’ve been using two apps. I get my workout plans from Workout for Women - the workouts are just seven minutes long and are easy to fit into a hectic day! Then, I use my MyFitnessPal to track what I eat throughout the day.
Can’t go anywhere without... Mascara. If I don’t want to put on a full face of makeup, I turn to Mac’s Upward Lash mascara. Talk about an instant makeover.
In another life, I would... Be an esthetician. But I still incorporate my passion for skincare into my life by sharing Rodan + Field’s products with others.
Favorite treat... a Starbucks Soy Latte. There’s only one word that needs to be said - yummmm.
What I wish I had more time for... Facials. But I haven’t foregone facials entirely. Who needs to go to the spa when you can give yourself a facial in your own home, right? I can achieve that “after-facial glow” by using Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask or Rodan + Field’s Micro-Dermabrasion Paste.
You can find me drinking... Green tea. I’m a huge fan of Bigelow’s Organic Green Tea – it provides a healthy energy boost!
To keep healthy... I drink KeVita’s Sparkling Probiotic Drink (I love the lemon ginger flavor). Each drink contains billions of live probiotics, which can support your immune system!
