Mom life may keep me super busy, but I still have a few beauty essentials that are must use, no matter how busy.

First, kids, business and stress may add to my wrinkles, and I believe in aging gracefully, but there are stillΒ  few things I can do to combat early aging. Good skincare. No, it doesn’t have to be expensive. It just has to have the right ingredients.

My favorite skincare brand is Dime Beauty! I use every single product from them and have better skin now than I did in my 20’s! They use clean, safe ingredients and are cruelty free, plus affordable and EFFECTIVE!

This is my holy grail morning and night trio!

The eyelash boost serum has been amazing! And the blue facial oil saves me from break outs!

Use code JessicaM20 at Dime too!

Another must have for me is dry shampoo. No brainer. Life is crazy. Sometimes I don’t have the time to wash, dry, and style my hair. But I do have a quick second to dry shampoo. It refreshes my style, eliminates oils, and volumizes. Win!!

Gimme Beauty dry shampoo is my favorite. They use safe and natural ingredients, like arrowroot, and it leaves my hair soft and fresh. They have a citrus to pick you up the morning, a coconut with UV protection for daytime, and a lavender scent to be calming at night. I truly love them all.

Use code JESSICALAING50 for 50% off your first subscription order at Gimme. (Cancel anytime)

One more thing that I highly recommend and totally don’t want to live without… my Ellavive gel nail system. Manicures are great. But often time consuming and expensive. A super quick and affordable option saves my nails!

This is the fastest system, and 1 minute per coat under the UV light, and it lasts me so long!

You can use code EA20JLAING at Ellavive too!

What do you think? Anything else you would add?

XX,

Jess

Yard Work And Such

April 4, 2012 at 8:35 am (Projects) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

We inherited a lot of yard maintenance to take care of from the previous owners. I mean A LOT. With six acres I am sure that some of that is inevitable, but this is just over the top. The must have never done yard work once while they lived here. Never. The weeds, even in the close to the house areas, were over my head. The trees had split and grown funky many years ago. The rock garden was more like a dirt pit scattered with rocks. Need I go on? So, point being, this is our first spring here and we have been putting in a lot of hard work out there. I can’t wait to get a new shipment of rock and show you how the “for now” patio area is coming. But, for right now I thought I would show you just how much tree trimming we accomplished the other day.

Here is the shot looking back at the house and you can see how the rock beds are coming along and things are even turning green now!

And that is only the front! Hey, we have neighbors! πŸ™‚ There were many other trees like this all over the property, not to mention weeds that had become their own trees all around the house, barns, and outbuildings. We have even uncovered some things we didn’t know were there when we moved in!! No joke! The other day we found an old metal lawn chair set up by a cattle shoot. They had made a shooting range down there and we couldn’t even see it! We found an old wheel borrow with what used to be flowers planted in it, various pieces of junk, both useful and non, and even learned we have an old hand-pumped well! And it works! Yea, so anyways, on to the fun part. With all of this hard work I just knew there would be some enjoyment in the end. Trimmed branches and a wine bottle…

Just a touch of spring, for the yard and for the house! Just in time for Easter. Gorgeous! πŸ™‚
