Currently Loving: Mario Badescu

Two more days and I can consider this week complete. Work is crazy right now because our Q3 just ended last week, which means the next few weeks will consist of early mornings, late nights and bad eating habits. Every three months my entire routine becomes shaken up. My workout schedule becomes nonexistent, my house and husband get neglected and I fall behind on anything personal that I have going on.  So, if I seem a little MIA, it’s because I am and probably will be until the 19th of May…oh the joys of Corporate America, right?!

Ok, moving on to more exciting things.  Have any of you tried the Mario Badescu line?  I was first introduced to the line through my BirchBox subscription, which included a sample of the Cellufirm Drops.  The drops help smooth the look of lines and wrinkles and it works!  Although the sample only lasted a few days, I loved how my skin looked and felt, so I immediately went out and bought my first bottle.  I think I’m on my 3rd one now…I highly recommend trying these drops.

Because I loved the drops so much, I decided to try a few more of their products.  Because I was about to leave for my trip to Europe, I decided to purchase on of their starter kits so I could take the products with me on my trip.  I used them every day and still have enough left to last me a few more weeks.  Although I didn’t sleep much during my trip and we were outside 12 hours a day, my skin looked great and never broke out.

Not only do the products work, I think they are very affordable compared to many of the other brands out there.  They are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, so that says a lot about the quality of their products.  I’ve included the specific ones that I have tried below but they have everything ranging from acne solutions to anti-agining for oily to dry skin types. They even have products targeted for men.  This is not an ad nor was I gifted the products, I just really, really like them.  I would love to hear if you have tried them and what you think!



Another Day, Another Tunic

Is it really Wednesday?  This week has flown by.  Rudy and I are keeping our niece and nephew while my brother and sister-in-law are in the Dominican Republic celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary.  Wow, what a difference a 4 year old and 20 month old make to your week.

Rather than watching our favorite shows, we have watched more episodes of Paw Patrol than I knew existed.  We have played with every toy they own at least once and picked them up off the floor more than that.  I don’t think I’ve even put on a full face of makeup since Saturday, but I have loved every minute of it.  Yes, they may have their moments where they don’t listen, but the second Addie says “Tete, I love you” for no reason or Gunner runs up to hug me, nothing else matters.

This week has just reconfirmed how much I want to be a mom.  I love my niece and nephews more than I can even explain, so I can’t imagine what that love is going to be like when it’s my own.  I can’t wait until the day I find out.

Lindsey shared a Free People tunic earlier this week and here I am sharing another one.  Can you tell that we both love tunics? And Free People for that matter.  I actually purchased this one during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale back in July, so I’ve been anxious to style it.  While I paired the tunic with jeans for this outfit, I’m sure I will also wear it with my faux leather leggings later this fall/winter.

Now, can we talk about the choker trend coming back?  I was very hesitant to attempt pulling one off…aren’t I too old for a choker?  Well, I stopped questioning and purchased one and I will admit that I love how it looks with this tunic.  I guess we will see how much I wear it this season.
