Catching Up

Hi everyone! I know it has been about a month since I have really blogged but it has been a crazy month. With school being out the kids and I have been on the go all the time. I will do a fast recap of the month of all of our highlights.

  • Last time I wrote I had to make a fast trip back to Indiana. My bestie Lynn her son Peyton lost his battle with cancer. BFF LB and I both went up to the funeral home together to support our friend. It was the hardest thing but yet at the same time I feel it brought our bond even closer because we all hugged at the same time and cried together. 
  • While I was back in Indiana I stayed for almost a week. I was able to go to a family wedding anniversary party which was a blast. I got to see extended family that I had not gotten to see since I was a little girl. 
  • All of the grandparents met up and we all went for a couple hour trip to this ranch. We got to play and hold with a six week old tiger. She was the cutest thing. I have to say this was by far one of the coolest things I have ever done. 

  • I didn't get to spend a lot of time with BFF but the time we did get to spend together was fun. We drove out into the country and explored which was fun for an hour or two. 

  •  I've had a lot of play dates with new Okie BFF Liz. We get together weekly for our kids. We have had zoo play date, played in the water at her house, played at our house, park date, and much more. 
  • We celebrated my birthday a few weeks ago. It was a fun night and taught me I was not a young pup any longer! I didn't function for half the day the next day. I am thankful to have met these ladies that are now also my Okie BFF. Sad Liz couldn't make it that evening.
 Me, Whitty, Sky

Review + Giveaway

This is a compensated post but all opinions are my own. 

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Dermagist to see if I would do a review of their product. They gave me free reign to decide what product(s) I wanted to try. I have never really had an issue with acne so I thought I would go with their anti aging system. You are never to young to work on those wrinkles right? Before deciding if I would do this I researched their product. I am very picky on what I put on my face.

Once I got the Complete Rejuvenation System I was very anxious to try it out. The first two days/nights I used the Original Smoothing Cream. The first night I put way to much on and could tell. My face felt heavy but not greasy. The next time I used it I used way less and liked the product and the feel much better. The third and fourth days I used the Dynamic Age Defying Serum. This product was very light and went very far. I made sure that I rubbed in all the creams very well before applying the next layer. Once the fifth night arrived I used all three products. I really liked the feel of the instant lifting serum. It was soft and didn't take a lot to use.

I could tell as the days went on that my makeup had gone on so much smoother and looked a lot more flawless and more natural. I like the natural look and don't wear a lot but I am the kind of person you can tell I do have my face done. My skin has been so soft. The bottles that the products came in are a very good size and look as though they would last at least a month if not longer.
