AZURE NATURALS - ULTIMATE VITAMIN C Serum Review & Giveaway!



I've been letting you peek into my skin care routine lately. I've shown you face masks that I love, and Vitamin C serums that I didn't. I've had the opportunity to review 3 different Vitamin C Serums, 1 that I enjoyed and 1 that didn't quite work for me, today I want to share with you one that I've absolutely loved using, the Azure Naturals Ultimate Vitamin C Serum.



Now if you haven't read my previous posts or know anything about Vitamin C serum (like I did a few months ago), I'd love to share a little information with you. This particular Vitamin C Serum is safe for all skin types. It helps with wrinkles, fine lines, dull complexions, acne and eczema. 

If you caught my last Vitamin C serum review you will know that I wasn't able to use it, that my skin was actually breaking out more and would only clear up if I stopped using it. I was pretty upset and wasn't sure if trying another serum would be a good idea, but I decided that there was no better time to try it. 

My acne started to clear up, and future breakouts while I've been using this product have healed quickly. I feel that my skin looks better. I have always had really red spots right where my nose & cheeks meet, super dry, red irritated spots and I have noticed that this isn't quite the case anymore. My skin is no longer dry there and the redness is almost completely gone. 

I absolutely love this Vitamin C Serum and have loved what it has done for my skin, and am so happy to let you know that you to can have a chance to have a bottle of this for yourself! 



I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Currently. Aug 4.

Oh Monday, I am so ready for you to be here. I'm ready for a new week, I'm ready for new projects and just everything you have to offer. As long as it's good okay?  


Currently:

Watching: My sweet girls eat breakfast. They have to do everything together. The smiles I get when they play together melt me. 



Looking at: The pictures on my phone. I have a ton of "elfies" of Miss A. Little stinker has found the flash and the flashlight on my phone and think they are hilarious. How can you get mad at this little "elfie" taker?




Thinking about: Our day, I feel like we need more of a schedule, ours is pretty open which is nice, but I'm sure my girls (& nephew when he's here) would like a little bit better schedule. I can't wait for the weather to cool down a bunch so we can enjoy so wagon walks in the morning and afternoon. 

Thankful for: All of the things we've been blessed with lately, and actually being able to enjoy them. Life is about to start changing up a bit with the husband's new job. Things are looking up and I'm so ready for it. Also thankful for the friends I've found through blogging. I got out of the game for a bit and really felt like I was missing something. It's amazing the feeling you get when you realize, yes I do have friends, and support and people that like to listen to my randomness.

Sunday Social Aug 3.



1. Gum or mints?
 Umm I tend to buy gum! Typically cinnamon

2. Tea or Coffee? 
Coffee every morning, but if I don't have coffee, tea! Really love the Starbucks Vanilla Rooiboos tea, it's the only one I absolutely love without having to add anything to it! 


3. Fruits or Veggies? 

Veggies! Love, love, love asparagus, peas, green beans, carrots, just by themselves Just last Monday we traded out spaghetti noodles for boiled cabbage- amazing!  I love fruits but tend to go for them more in smoothies or when they're in a dessert, oops! 


4. TV or Movies?

TV. Netflix to be exact! Seems so much easier lately to just watch a quick episode of something, rather than trying to get into a movie while the girls are up. 


5. Candles or Diffusers? 

Loving candles right now! I go through at least 2 a week, constantly have one lit somewhere, love coming home to a clean house that smells great!  I lean towards vanilla/sweet scents, what about you?

Happy August!

Happy Friday & Happy August friends!! 

I can't believe it's already August. This year is flying by and so many new changes are happening. In just a couple weeks we'll be celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary and we'll actually be going out ALONE. Seriously, did I just type that? Eek, this is the first time ever really since having our oldest- Miss A (3)- that we've gone out alone on a date. We always make time to spend together but always decided we'd like to include our girls. Super excited to get dressed up and go out and celebrate together! 

This last week has brought a lot with it, and I just want to share a handful of positive things about it: 



1. We've seen a huge change personality wise from Miss M. These iron drops though a pain to get down are absolutely 100% improving her health and overall wellness. So happy for her. 



2. The new Ikea book came out this week. Cannot stop looking at it. Seriously, nap time is full of this mom daydreaming. 



3. Probably the biggest thing to happen- my sweet hard working husband got a new job! So absolutely proud of him and the amazing job he's doing at providing for our family. It's always been our goal to make sure I've been a SAHM to our kids and it's great to see that not only happen, but that it's going to stay that way. 

4. I finished up the Blogilates Beginner's Calendar on Wednesday, and am starting the August Calendar today. Super excited to see the changes in my body and my happiness level. It's really amazing what 30 mins of hard work can do for you physically and emotionally. 

5. I've gotten quite a few awesome products to review this week. I'm super excited to share them with you over the next month or so.

Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent Review.



Raise your hand if you feel like you are constantly doing laundry! 

*Raises hand!* 

Honestly, if I want to keep up with laundry I do at least a load a day. It piles up quick! Between different outfit changes for the kids and adults, the towels, and blankets constantly used. Oh & bedding. Wait I forgot the couch cushion covers, those get dirty often too.  It just won't stay under control. Needless to say, we go through A LOT of detergent. So when I was given the opportunity to review Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent , I was thrilled. 


Before I get to my opinion of this detergent, lets talk about what it claims to have to offer me (us).

Made from Saponin (natural soap) & water.
100% Non-Toxic
Long lasting.
Softer clothes.
Hypoallergenic and net negative carbon footprint.

Well, we are loving this so far. I use this to wash my towels and blankets, which are a daily wash. I did notice it had a stronger maybe strange scent when I opened it and worried about that transferring to my clothes, but nope! Worked great! Blankets & towels were super clean, smelled great and felt great. Definitely loving the pump top of this bottle, makes it so much easier to do laundry versus having to pour from a bottle.
