Sunday Funday


The heat is turning up in Houston and it seems like we're headed for the tropics... Well we just went to a cruise theme engagement party, hence the tropical background. Here was my tropical look...
Scoop neck top - Express
Multi-green skirt - Old Navy
T-strap sandals - Target
Gold necklace - Target
On Will:
Short sleeve button up - Old Navy
Khaki shorts - Foley's (he's had them a while)
sandals - Foley's
My good friends JC and Michelle had a wonderful engagement party today. Since they plan to have a cruise wedding, they turned her parents house into a cruise ship by the beach. We had a great time aboard The Love Boat :-)
At the party, my friends Michele and Laura were complimenting me on my skin and asked me to blog about it. So ladies, this is for you.... On my face, I use a glycolic moisturizer at night. This helps keep my face "exfoliated". During the day, I wear a different moisturizer (Studio Max) with an SPF built in. I treat my neck like my face and moisturize it twice a day. I refuse to get lines on my neck! I always wash my face before going to bed and in the morning. I drink a ton of water throughout the day and it really does help keep my skin hydrated. On my body, I exfoliate every few days. I like Mary Kay's Satin Hands Smoothie Scrub. Even though it's for hands, I use it on my entire body. I especially scrub my upper arms and they are always nice and smooth. I am a firm believer of putting lotion on within 3 minutes of getting out of the shower. It really does help keep in the moisture. My absolute favorite lotion is Archipelago's Soy Milk Lotion. You can find it at Ulta. I use it twice a day. That's really it. So ladies... moisturize and lotion up!
Well ladies, I may not be blogging as much as I would like to in the next month. I have a month until our wedding ceremony and I am starting to really feel the crunch! We have a lot we need to do in the next month. My workout schedule is also going into overdrive. My trainer and I are about to go from 30 minute sessions to hour sessions, plus whatever I do on my own. Like I said, I'm not going away completely, but you may be just getting a weekly blog during May.
Well, I hope everyone had a great weekend. Here's to a new week and month!

I adore that skirt!

What a fun party, and the outfits are perfect! Adorable couple. I agree, your skin is amazing, so glowy, thanks for sharing your routine. I need to be more diligent about using lotion and SPF on my neck and chest, I'm paranoid about wrinkles there too.

Have a blast preparing for the wedding!!

You look great as always! I understand about the need to cut back on the blog, a wedding is such a big deal and all the last min. stuff can creep up on you all of a sudden. I love this outfit, I saw this skirt at old navy a week ago and passed it up, why did i do this, it is so cute on you.

I am typically not a fan at all of tiered skirts, but you are working that one! Looks great!
