November Currently.

Reading: Eek, absolutely nothing. Help me!

Watching: All of the shows. Seriously, Scandal, Grey's, Vampire Diaries, Mindy Project... How to Get Away With Murder... I meant it when I said everything because that isn't even half of my list.

Listening: Christmas Music. This started 17 days ago and will go until Christmas. My girls & I love Christmas music.

Eating: Getting ready to eat, these chocolate chip cookies. Best ever. But mine are gluten free. So I just use this flour mixture instead of regular flour.

DIYing: Uhh... I just finished up a turkey for nursery music time. I should be starting on preschool stuff, seeing as it's at my house December 2nd! 

Buying: Too much makeup. I can't help it lately- I blame Maskcara. I absolutely LOVE her tutorials and spend way too much time wandering Pinterest pretending I can be just like her.

{Review} InstaNatural’s Stretch Mark & Scar Cream

When I was blessed with my sweet girls I was also given some pretty intense stretch marks. I don't really mind them, no one sees them except my husband and he doesn't care. It doesn't mean that there wasn't a time that I did feel super self conscious about them. I researched creams and oils. After A was born my dad bought me some stretch mark oil, it was supposed to help get rid of them. I used it religiously for a while and by being moisturized they started to look a bit better. 

Well as with all extra beauty tasks I add that only lasted so long. When given the chance to review InstaNatural’s Stretch Mark & Scar Cream I was super excited to get started with helping hopefully reduce the appearance of my stretch marks.

 Now I'm not one to think that they will ever go away, I know there is no miracle cure for them and I know that I will constantly have a love hate relationship with them. This Stretch Mark & Scar Cream, actually helped make my stretch marks look better. Even my husband noticed a difference, they weren't red and they were fading better. I've fallen in love with this stretch mark cream.  Here is just a quick list of what's inside: Vitamin C, Cocoa Butter, Rosehip Oil, Mango Butter, Grapeseed Oil & Evening Primrose Oil.

Cleaning & Attitude.

It seems like for a while there I was  playing catch up. 

Laundry, dishes, blogging, nursery projects for church, and all the other fun little chores that life entails. 

It wasn't until lately that I've finally found a good groove. I'm no longer lost in the piles of laundry, my laundry gets folded and put away after being dried. The stack of dishes in the sink is either non-existant or no longer a daunting task. 

Is my house perfectly tidy? Heck no! As I sit and type I have a basket of soiled clothes awaiting a good wash, Toys are strewn about the living room, creating a nice obstacle course. And I'm sure if you were to look closer there is probably a nice layer of dust covering photographs and furniture. 

So what has changed? My attitude and my schedule. I wake myself up by 7 am, and get started on breakfast and the little things I want to do for myself while my girls are snug in their beds. Catching up on shows and painting my nails are no longer a thing of the past. Once the girls are up I start on my to-do list. The dishes are cleaned, the toys picked up and the laundry sorted and started. Throughout the day little messes are made, and they eventually pile up to disasters, but my girls are happy and so am I. 

Once bath time rolls around the chores are started once again. Dishes, toys and laundry are tidied up again and we all climb into bed with a clean house and smiles on our faces. We no longer strive to have a clean house only to fall short and fill with disappointment. We clean as we go, and enjoy the playtime and the messes in between.

How do you keep your house clean with young children?

{Review} Adovia Anti Wrinkle Cream

As I mentioned several blog posts ago, I started using moisturizers not too long ago. (Gasp! I know- fail!) I've found a few that I love, and the Adovia Anti Wrinkle Cream is one of them! 

This moisturizing cream includes Vitamin C, Lactic Acid, Collagen, Dead Sea Salt & minerals. I like to wear makeup daily, and am always skeptical of cream moisturizers for fear of them being too heavy on my skin. I am so pleased with this moisturizer, and how surprisingly light it goes on. 

What moisturizer do you use?
