Let’s talk skincare people. I don’t know about you. But, it is something I think about as I near the end of my 30′s. It’s hard to not be consumed by the fine lines and wrinkles that start to develop as we age. I’m only being honest here.

Thanks for asking…because, I didn’t know a soul there and I didn’t know what to expect. Turned out it was an amazing, inspiring, and a definite spotlight moment! Read more

And that’s exactly how my skin felt when I tried a few products from the H20+ Bath and Body line. Read more

It’s very true that time flies when you’re having fun. Just look at this summer—it’s already mid-August! It’s almost over.
