I’m so excited to be one of the first people to be introducing EVER Skincare!  I seriously don’t even know where to begin… perhaps with how I came to be involved.  I have been toying around with selecting a skincare regimen for about a year… I was wondering if I should go to a dermatologist or an esthetician or what.  My friend Dana started posting about a brand new skincare line on Facebook.  I knew she worked for Obagi as a sales rep for years so I really trusted her opinion on this particular topic.  I wrote asking her about the products and we set up a time to check them out.  A few days later I saw she posted an article about one of the founders of EVER, Jessica Herrin.  When I read in the article that she is also the mastermind behind Stella & Dot (which I LOVE), I instantly knew I wanted to be a part of the company.  Being on the ground floor of this brand has endless possibilities and I’m so excited to be here from the beginning. So now… onto the products… the real, effective, amazing products.

Jessica Herrin employed the knowledge and expertise of Christin Powell, an experienced beauty product developer.  Christin researched and actually discovered what they have named LSR10, a bioactive complex derived from Magnolia Bark and two other components that together are clinically proven to fight the top 10 signs of aging.  Since the products are powerful yet botanically derived, they produce results without the harsh side effects of chemically based products.

The regimen is comprised of your choice of a cleanser (a balm or purifying gel), peel pads, a peptide serum, PM moisturizer and AM SPF moisturizer (tinted or plain).  There are several enhancers as well — an eye lift cream, hand cream, body oil, lip treatment and my favorite, the retinol overnight facial.  I’ll go over each product in separate posts to further explain and give my honest opinion!

But in the meantime, enjoy these photos I snapped of their beautiful products.  I feel like they are honestly beautiful, inside and out, just like the many women who will use and love them!  I’ve been using the regimen for two weeks and have noticed differences in my skin already, but also as important, I feel really good taking care of my skin for basically the first time in my life.  I’m EVER inspired by these products and this brand. <3  More information to come, but please send me an email if you’d like anymore information!

We’re headed to the Keys next week woohoo!  Granted, we are photographing TWO weddings while we’re there, but we’re also staying a few days before that at a pretty sweet resort and I’m excitedd.  We are going to try to sneak in some family photos so I was browsing around for a cute maxi dress and found this one.  Who’s ready for a frozen drink?

Organizing My Purse

So I like big purses… and up until now I’ve just had all of my random belongings thrown inside.  It gets pretty annoying having to take everything out piece-by-piece until I find what I’m looking for, say my lip gloss, a hair tie or sunglasses.  I decided action needed to be taken and planned to devise a system.  The solution?  Bags within bags.  Sounds easy enough right?

A wallet that can also be a wrislet is perfect for when you need to run into the post office, when you need money but not your entire purse.  I don’t care what anyone says, I love me some Vera Bradley — plenty of compartments, durable, colorful and easy to spot in a deep purse!  This wallet is big enough that I can zip up my keys and phone within it, making it like a little clutch.

Every woman’s purse has an assortment of cosmetics, hence the cosmetic pouch or bag.  I keep things like hand sanitizer, lotion, hair ties, lip gloss, etc. within it and it’s easy to pull it out when I need access to any of these items, because usually when you need a brush you’re gonna need some lip gloss!

Another little bag (thanks to the free gifts from Estee Lauder) contains office type materials… a case for business cards, little notepad and pen and a mini accordion book of some family photos.  I also stash a little ear bud set in there mainly in case Amelia wants to play a game on my phone and I don’t want to annoy everyone around me with Dora the Explorer music.

I also keep a little coupon case in my bag where I file receipts, gift cards or gift certificates and coupons.  If only I could remember to use coupons before they expire, I’d be really efficient.
