#GlowUp for 2018 ♡


Hello pretty friends, 

Let's talk about adulting and the many things that come with it-- especially responsibility. Like the responsibility to work out weekly, to drink enough water daily and to take care of our skin. 
Sounds like a long list but all so very needed as we grow up. 
I know by working on our health and skin today in the long run it will only benefit how we age. 
I just started to use Olay Cleansing Infusions to keep my skin glowing all year long. By using this new line, I know I will grow into my skin. 
 Olay Cleansing Infusions has Crushed Ginger and Citrus Extract, both which are nourishing ingredients that have long lasting benefits. These ingredients improve skin tone and elasticity and have Vitamin C that fight bacteria. The line also comes in a Deep Sea Kelp with Aloe scent! 
Both the face and body Olay Cleansing Infusions feel so smooth on and keep my skin soft and moisturized. I am excited to keep using them and guess what you can also start your journey to glow up your skin from head to toe by buying the Olay Cleansing Infusions at your local Walgreens and here

Thanks for reading! Happy better skin days!

With love from, 
Kris

Dry Scalp Treatments: What Worked best ♡

Photo by LC Photography 

Hello pretty friends,

I moved from humid Florida to desert dry Utah three years ago. One of the biggest changes I had to adjust to was climate. Not only because it is so cold in Utah but the new climate made my skin go crazy.
Today I want to talk about my skin that suffered most...my scalp. The cold and dryness really made my scalp itchy and then flake. I was not use to using lots of product for it because in FL the humidity really makes a difference.

So below I'll share the ONE that worked best for me and my condition and others that I also tired.

Coconut oil
Don't know all the science behind it but this is the treatment that worked best for me. 
WHAT: I buy organic coconut oil comes in a jar. It is very pasty and its clear has no color.

HOW: After my hair was dirty (so after not washing it for two to three days) I use a comb to pretty much "scratch" out all the excess dry skin. Once I lifted all the dead skin/flakes I section my hair (I have a lot of hair). Then I finally spread the coconut oil all over my scalp. Once the scalp is all covered in coconut oil I message it in kinda like if it was shampooing.
There are lost of places that advice you to leave the coconut oil in your hair for a minutes to a few hours. I tired both but I saw best results after leaving it on overnight.
The morning after I shampoo like three times until all the "oily" leaves my hair. And then I condition (I always condition if I was my hair I think it's a good habit.

Why: Coconut oil works because of the antibacterial properties it has, it heavily moisturizes and has no other ingredient that would harm the scalp. Also as I used I notice overall smoothness and shine to my actual hair since the oil melts into your hair.

Who: Everyone can use it. It is sensitive enough for babies head. Moms use it for their baby when they have cradle cap.

Other scalp treatments I tried

  • Carrot juice/mask
  • Dove Demacare Scalp 
  • Neutrogena Daily Control T/GEL
  • Ketoconazole Shampoo 2% (prescription only, went to a DERM doctor)
  • Tea Tree oil treatments (at various salons)
  • Head and Shoulders Shampoo

Okay so I tried various treatments but like I said I found the coconut oil treatment to be best.  If you would like to know about the other treatments or if you have any other questions please ask in the comments below. I'll make sure to answer according to my experience with dry scalp. 


Thanks so much for reading!

Winter Skin Solution: Olay Whips ♡




Hello pretty friends,

Being a Florida girl living in Utah has left my skin sensitive. My skin was used to the humidity and barley any winter.
Now that I live in Utah the weather is so dry but even more in the winter. My skin really needs all the help it can.  It gets so dry and itchy.
Did you know our skin starts to feel the effects of cold weather when temperatures drop below 53.6 degrees Fahrenheit? And our weather here in the Winter is much lower. And when we use central heating the humidity level in the air can be reduced to as low as the Sahara Deseret--which is like 20 to 25%. Crazy right? Yeah our skin totally feels the effects.
So I am very excited to start using Olay Whips which is available at our local Walgreens, other stores and online now.
Olay Whips has all the science to provide our skin with all the right ingredients to help us fight winter skin problems. It is the unicorn of moisturizers with instant absorption and active rush technology. that gives our skin all it needs during the winter vs. creating a greasy film. Can't wait to see how it helps my skin!

You can buy your Whips from Walgreens here: http://spr.ly/Whips-Walgreens06

Love is in the Air ♡




Hello pretty friends,


Valentines Day has always been a fun holiday to celebrate because of all the treats, feel good notes, the color pink and of course love! With that said people like to (when you are single) ask the golden question...
Do you have a date for Valentines Day? 

Yes. Not the type of date they assume but I'll be babysitting Emma my almost 2-year-old cute as can be niece. Being an auntie has for sure been one of the most treasured experiences and relationship to date.

Which made me think of another popular Valentines Day phrase...
L o v e  is in the air 
So maybe it's in the "air" more during this holiday but really love is always in the air wether we are single or not.
  • We are loved by our Heavenly Father
  • We have the opportunity to love and build meaningful relationships with those around us
    • Like... neighbors, roommates, coworkers and of course friends and family
  • We can love and be loved by our furry friends too
So let's celebrate other kinds of love if we don't have the romantic kind yet because truly love is in the air!


Happy Valentines!

With love from, 
Kris
