The Ultimate Guide to Cure Dry Skin


For the past few months, the cold weather has wreaked havoc on my skin - I always have to give my skin some extra TLC in the colder months, but for some reason this winter has been way harder to deal with! There's nothing I hate more than dry skin... I'm borderline obsessed with trying/using different moisturizers and seeing what works best, and most importantly what makes my skin feel the best. I decided to try a TON of different hydrating, moisturizing lotions and cremes. In fact I've been working on this since late November - I wanted to give each product I was trying a fair chance to work and while I still have a lot of the ones I've bought to try out further, I wanted to share this guide now in hopes of helping some of you dealing with winter skin cope for the rest of the winter!

Wellness Wednesday: Simple Tips to Get Motivated and Moving to Make Positive Changes


Happy Wednesday! Halfway to the weekend... but the goal is to stop saying that and enjoy the moment - who else agrees?! I've always said that as a "way to get through the rest of the week", but I'm really trying to change my mindset. Mentally but also physically; I want to feel better in more ways than one and I want to get motivated to be a better version of me. And more than some of that #NewYearNewMe B.S., it's more of a lifestyle change.

So, cue Wellness Wednesdays! I'm motivated to have more energy and feel better physically and mentally - the overall goal is to live a healthier, more positive life and I truly believe getting fit is a HUGE step in that process! Every once in a while (and on a Wednesday, obvi... ;) I'll share another edition of Wellness Wednesday and each will be filled with a different kind of motivational-inspo. (If there's any specific topics you want me to include, let me know!!) I've been at this for a few weeks now, so I thought sharing the tips that have helped me to stay motivated to get up, get moving and motivated to workout and make a change would be the perfect place to start. Here's some really simple things you can do to make that change - and trust me, it feels GOOD!
