Happy Tuesday

 I was supposed to go to the grocery store yesterday (which is at the top of my list of least favorite things to do), but I ran out of time. Had I remembered I had such an important item on my grocery list, I would have made it happen.

I was out of coffee creamer🙃

So good 🙂

Tomorrow marks one week without air on our main floor. ONE WEEK! Temps are reaching mid 90’s outside people.

We keep this set on 67 year round. We sweatin.

Dealing with our home warranty company has been far from pleasant. Nobody wants to have to deal with the insurance companies so nobody wants to accept our job. What do you do other than call, call again, and call again? 🤷‍♀️

So I’ve whined plenty about my dry skin to you guys for a very long time. Yesterday at the doctor he says, “Goodness Carrie your skin is so dry”. Like no duh. He recommended this.

Have any of you tried it? He said to get my shower (and not get out until im prune-ish) and then add this all over while my skin is still wet. After that he said just pat dry with my towel and I will be a new woman. He actually said do this for about a week and THEN I will be a new woman and should only have to do it once or twice a week to maintain. I found it at Walgreens (where I should have grabbed my creamer) for about $10. I’m hopeful!

Before I go, Kate Spade has a surprise sale going on and its BIG! Jewelry from $19 and crossbody bags starting at $49. I have my eye on these bracelets.

Yes Please!

If you or anyone in your household aren’t sick right now, surely you know someone who is.  What is the deal? It’s everywhere! We like to pass things around in my house and right now Caleigh is the lucky one.

Dr’s visit ✅  Antibiotics ✅

At least it’s not the flu.

 

While I was getting ready this morning I realized I had to tell y’all about something I’ve been using. I have extremely dry skin. Really, really, really, really dry skin. Mine is due to surgical menopause at 30 years old. It’s completely hormonal and there’s really nothing I can do to prevent it. There are days that my face is so dry it burns. With all that said it’s really hard to wear makeup with flaky skin. A few months ago I was watching the Today Show ( Matt 😭 whyyyyy) and they were interviewing a Victoria’s Secret model and asking her how she prepares for the runway. She mentioned a facial spray (among 55 other things) that she carries with her everywhere she goes and uses it all throughout the day for hydration. Obviously I jumped up and started my research. Who doesn’t want the skin of a supermodel? 😉

I absolutely love this stuff. I keep a couple lying around the house and one in my purse. Every time I see that bottle, I spray. This has been a game changer for me. My face will always be somewhat dry unfortunately but this has completely changed the appearance of my skin. When my husband notices, it’s a big deal 😉

I spray this on after I wash my face (but before applying moisturizer) and then I spray again to set my makeup. I probably end up using this 5-10 times a day, everyday. Before I bought this I read dozens of reviews (as if a super models review wasnt enough).  Another one suggested has green tea and cucumber which helps to soothe. This is great for me since mine is on fire half the time.

I found this set on Amazon….

….And I am in love.  For whatever reason I started putting the green tea spray on my makeup brushes before applying foundation and concealer,  and it works! I can’t say enough good things about these 2 little miracles in a bottle.

Amazon has this set for $14. I love you Amazon 😘

One more thing before I go. If you ever shop Nordstrom Rack or Hautelook (basically the same thing) then you know it’s deals galore on some major designer brands (and if you haven’t please please do). I love Nordstrom but I love love Nordstrom Rack! You are getting everything Nordstrom carries (or carried) at a huge discount. Just log on and enter your email. This used to be the only way you could enter the site. I’m actually not sure if that’s changed since I joined? Anyway, they hold “events” (sales) and will email you each time one starts and what type of event. There was a Frye event one day last week and a Tory Burch event a few days ago. I want to say Spanx is going on right now. Just click events on the sites, there are dozens being held right now. These are typically 12-24 hour events so if you do see something you like don’t leave it in your cart too long !

I received an email for the Terre Mere event on Hautelooks site earlier. I have never used these products. I repeat, I have never used these products 😉 However at 96% off I haaaaaddd to share. It does appear that all their beauty products are 100% organic & vegan.

This 8-piece brush set was $236 (what???) Now- $9.97. Click HERE to check it out.  One drawback is allow 2-4 weeks for shipping .🙄 Booo.
