By December 20, 2014 My Life

It’s crazy to think that there are only 5(!) days until Christmas – where does the time go? It’s funny how I start to think about how fast things come and go now that I’m a little older. Things I never thought about when I was a little younger are literally at the top of list right now. One of those things? My skin. Now like every good blogger, I have a tried and true skin routine, but I never really thought about anti-aging, firming, or preventative products. But with the new year around the corner, it’s one of the things I’m starting to focus on. Thankfully, my regimen already includes rituals that work wonders for feeling fresh-faced throughout the day. I thought I’d take you through a typical day – a chill Saturday – and share what I’ve been doing lately to pamper myself inside and out.

Regenerist was created along those lines to address women’s anti-aging needs, and millions of women have tried it and loved it, making Regenerist the #1 anti-aging moisturizer.*

Happy Friday! Another week has flown by, but it’s my favorite time of the year so I’m not complaining. I’m looking forward to hibernating, drinking mulled wine (see the recipe below), and maybe catching up on Serial. Anyway, on to what caught my eye this time around…


Have a great weekend!

Up next in this year’s guide is my personal favorite – the stocking fillers! I like to gift items the recipient would never think to get for themselves. Whether useful, silly, or just plain beautiful, each of these would make a unique little surprise.
