Creating a Skincare Routine You Will Stick With!

Building a skincare routine feels like it should be a simple task, but when you actually start looking at products, you can feel daunted by choices.

Do I put on moisturizer or serum first? When do I exfoliate?

Every person has started their skincare journey exactly where you are! While you may already know some basics, such as cleanser before moisturizer, adding anything new can be hard, and learning new products can be challenging. I have always been overwhelmed with finding a skincare routine and it wasn't until I was in my 40s when someone told me what I should be doing that I found any success in creating a routine. My goal is to age gracefully. I'm not afraid of wrinkles and lines, but I don't want to speed up that process either. With the right skincare routine, you can do just that! And I'm going to help show you what worked for me.

Stocking Stuffers for Older Teens and Young Adults

The first thing that gets opened up on Christmas morning at our house is stockings. All winter long, as soon as the decorations get put up, the stocking are hung on the mantle. On Christmas morning, the stockings, bursting with a combination of wrapped and unwrapped items are on the floor in front of the roaring fireplace. As the kids get older, the task of stuffing stockings can feel like a daunting task. When they were little it was easy to put candy and small toys inside, but as they've gotten bigger, it can seem more challenging. I've put together a list of 100+ items! This list isn't exhaustive but should get you thinking out of the box a bit.  I've linked our favorites when I could, so make sure you check the underlined items and add those to your cart for easy shopping!

A Different Kind of Gratitude Challenge

Gratitude is incredibly powerful. A few weeks ago, I was encouraged to start a month of gratitude for November. I started practicing it a bit and was surprised at what a difference it made in not only my daily life but in the life of others. While it's easy to focus energy on Thanksgiving day, the preparations leading up to the day aren't often celebrated with gratitude. Let me take that back, some of you have taken to social media to type out daily gratitude. That's great! I think there is so much importance in recognizing daily gratitude, but this challenge is a bit different, and I think it has the potential to be really impactful. Read on.
