Valentine’s Day is coming right up! While my husband and I don’t do a lot for each other on Valentine’s Day, we do celebrate it with the kids.  They each wake up to a chocolate chip muffin and one gift.  If you celebrate with your kids and are looking for a unique Valentine’s Gift then you simply must check out Six Sisters Beadworks.

Unique Valentine's Gift Idea #ad

They offer custom made jewelry for children and also for women! I see many things on their site that I would love.  We were sent one of their customized bracelets for our daughter.

Unique Valentine's Gift Idea #ad

We went with a simple, but elegant, Cuff Bracelet.

We had Six Sisters Beadworks engrave Kayla’s initials on the outside.

But we chose a special message for her on the inside of her bracelet.

Unique Valentine's Gift Idea #ad

Kayla loves her bracelet and we have been pleased with the quality of it so far.  Six Sisters Beadworks does carry items for kids and women, but I wanted to point out that they also have a nice selection of items for men and boys.  They are definitely a one-stop shop when you are looking for a unique Valentine’s Gift.

One thing I’d really like to do this year is take better care of my skin.  I have good intentions, but then I get busy and I’m lucky just to wash my face before bed.  However, I know I need to do better if I want my skin to look and feel good.  So when I got the chance to try out some skin care products, I jumped at the chance.

skin

7th Heaven offers a variety of face masks that are both effective and economical.  My skin has been feeling really dull lately so I tried the Exfoliator & Masque first.  It contains crushed dead sea salt, grated orange peel, and ground black lava.  As soon as I opened the package, I noticed the yummy orange scent.  I massaged it into my skin and then let it dry for 15 minutes before rinsing it off.  It didn’t feel very grainy so I wasn’t sure how well it would exfoliate.  But when I rinsed it off, my skin felt very smooth, clean, and fresh!

I had the luxury of soaking in the tub last week so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try out the Dead Sea Mud Pac.  This one is meant for combination and oily skin.  It combines seaweed, crushed dead sea salt, and pressed flowers.  It’s a hard drying mask which I liked.  My skin felt super clean and tight afterwards.

The smell of the Creamy Coconut mask made me think of the beach!  It uses pressed shea nut, pulped coconut, and ground cocoa to moisturize and hydrate skin.  It left my face super soft and supple.

All of these masks can be found at retailers like Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Kroger. They retail for $1.99.  That’s a great deal, especially considering I was able to get two uses out of each pack!

 

snowberry

Snowberry was founded by cosmetician Soraya Hendesi, who wanted to create natural skin care products that took advantage of advances in skin care science while also being environmentally friendly.  Snowberry products are not tested on animals and don’t, with the exception of honey and cultured pearl, contain any animal product.

I was really excited to try the New Radiance Face Serum with CuPEP.   Copper Tripeptide-1, which occurs naturally in the skin and which doesn’t cause a skin reaction, stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin.  Snowberry developed a world-first delivery technology that ensures the safe delivery of the peptide into dermal cells.  It’s the only serum in the world with this technology, and  was also the only anti-ageing serum in the world, invited to be presented to the 23rd World Congress of Dermatology in Vancouver.  A trial, carried out by Dermatest Medical Research Institute in Germany, showed that the Serum helped to reduce wrinkle volume by an average of 25.6%!

20170111_135619

This clear serum has no scent and absorbed quickly into my skin.  It was not heavy or greasy feeling at all and left my skin feeling smooth and soft.  I have been using it for about 10 days now, in the morning and at night, and my skin definitely looks smoother and the lines around my eyes seem less noticeable.  I am very pleased with the results so far and can’t wait to see how my skin looks after a full month of using it!

The New Radiance Face Serum retails for $36.  You can purchase it and learn more about Snowberry’s full line of products at snowberryskincare.com.

I have done a lot of my Christmas shopping online this year so we frequently find packages on the porch.  Thankfully, one of those packages was my December Peaches & Petals box.  In the midst of the craziness, it was fun to stop and see what goodies I received this month!

The theme for this month is “Jingle and Mingle”.

This Keep Calm and Color On daily calendar is a fun way to keep track of the date.  It will make a great gift for my friend that loves to doodle and color.

These pretty earrings were my “surprise item” this month.  They’re really cute and will add some sparkle to a solid black sweater.

20161214_134525 20161214_134619

I love trying new lip colors so I was excited about this Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain.  The color is “Lucky” which is a nice neutral mauve. It goes on smoothly and feels good on my lips.

20161214_134008

I also received this fun wine bottle ugly Christmas sweater and hat topper.  It would be really cute on a bottle of wine you are gifting to someone.

I always have candles going at home and really want my house to smell good,  Our two teen boys’ bedroom is in the basement so it definitely needs help!  This wax free fragrance warmer from Westinghouse is perfect for the teen stinkiness. The warmer came with a vanilla fragrance disc and I also received two sun-dried linen refills.  I plugged the warmer in and started smelling it almost immediately.  It filled the whole room with a nice vanilla scent.

Here’s the breakdown:

Calendar- $7.31

Earrings- $6

Lip Stain- $24

Wine Bottle Sweater- $6

Warmer- $14.99

2 Warmer refills- $8
