Happy Holidays | Family Photo

A few days ago I shared with you my skincare regime to make sure I was Holiday Ready! I mentioned to you guys that I wanted to create a Christmas card for my family and friends that don’t live nearby. My husband is in the Navy so we don’t live near any of our family members.

We have never done a family photo before and it is mostly because my husband is usually deployed during the holidays, but also because my kids are very young and the photos are never perfect. Now that I am a little older myself I realized that nothing can ever be “perfect” so I am aiming for “the best it can be”!

Speaking of “the best it can be”, I have been using the Olay Regenerist skin care line to make sure my skin was its best beautiful. I have been using the Regenerating Cream Cleanser, Regenerating Eye Lifting Serum, Micro-Sculpting Cream, and Regenerating Night Recovery Cream. With this award winning* skin care brand I have achieved dramatic results without drastic measures.

So I just want to say thank you to Olay for helping me put my best face forward for my family holiday photo! If you liked my family holiday photo, you should go over to Photobucket and make one for yourself. It was easy to do and I think it looks really nice. We took the photo ourselves in front of our Christmas tree and I loaded it to the editor and created the card from there. There are even tools right on the save screen where you can share this photo electronically so that your Facebook or Twitter friends can see immediately.

My Favorite Beauty Tech Tools - KISS Instawave

Kiss InstaWave

I am pretty much a hair tool junkie and lately I have been playing around with (and loving) the Kiss InstaWave.  I love beautiful soft curls and sometimes wrapping all that hair around a wand can get tiresome.  The Kiss InstaWave is actually a mechanical wand that does all the curling and twirling for you!…

Brow Basics with The BrowGal

Brows are the backbone and MOST important step in my makeup routine.  I have said that so many times here but I really do feel the need to stress it.  Without “putting my brows on” my face would look unfinished and, well… unstructured.  My brows are not identical and they are gapped.  I have blank…
