Perricone MD Kit

I love the product line from Perricone MD and this is part two of the series with the Science of Perricone MD 2014. I love having the opportunity to try new products without having to pay full price incase its not for me. I am very excited to give these new products a try. This set is from QVC and I would not call them samples because most are half the amount of a full size which I am very pleased with.

The kit includes:
1 fl oz Face Finishing Moisturizer
.25 fl oz Cold Plasma Eye
1 fl oz OVM
.05 fl oz Neuropeptide facial cream
1 fl oz Blue Plasma

I am really excited to try the Blue Plasma. The site states:

Who is it for: It was developed for the person who wants to address the visible signs of aging. Blue Plasma reinvents the action of more traditional peels or exfoliators, and was developed by Dr. Perricone as a gentle alternative to harsh exfoliators.

Why is it different: Through bio-specific technology, Blue Plasma performs three modes of action: bio-specific peeling attacks only dead skin cells; micro-purification purifies the skin; and hydro-fusion rebalances the skin's hydration with enriched water.

The OVM states:

Who is it for: Anyone experiencing the advanced signs of aging skin. Suitable for all skin types.

Why is it different: The eggshell membrane, the thin layer between the egg white and the eggshell, was designed by nature with the perfect matrix of compounds to nourish and protect the precious egg components. Dr. Perricone has combined eggshell membrane, vitamin A, and his unique carrier system to create a powerful bio-matrix technology.

Face Finishing Moisturizer:

What is it: A luxurious, rose-scented cream that helps to restore moisture, radiance, and firmness to the skin.

Who is it for: People of all skin types who seek a daily moisturizer that helps fight the signs of aging while providing healthy hydration.

Cold Plasma Eye:

What is it: A breakthrough eye product utilizing four patented technologies to comprehensively address the visible signs of aging skin--including lack of radiance and fine lines and wrinkles--on the eye area.

Who is it for: A must-have product for everyone. Cold Plasma Eye is considered one of Dr. Perricone's most powerful eye treatment products and was formulated to produce maximum results. It was developed for the person, regardless of age, who is serious about addressing the visible signs of aging skin around their eyes.

Neuropeptide Facial Cream:

What is it: A unique cream that helps improve the appearance of your skin's firmness while reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Who is it for: All skin types. 82% of users reported an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, 70% reported their skin is firmer, and 85% reported their skin had a better glow.

I have tried a couple of these and I am already very impressed. This is a line that I will continue to use. I am very happy with the results.

Have you tried any of the products from this line?

Dr. Jart BB Cream Set Review

I made a special trip to Sephora last month on a mission to find a BB cream to try. I saw this set on display and felt it would be perfect to try and I am so glad I did! I have been using these as my primary foundation.

They are perfect for the summer months and they give the perfect amount of coverage. I do not wear a heavy foundation so these work great. The set was only $34.00 and you have the chance to try 4 different types from this brand.

This set contains:- 0.5 oz Renewalist BB Beauty Cream SPF 40
- 0.5 oz Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm SPF 25
- 0.5 oz Water Fuse BB Beauty Balm SPF 25
- 0.5 oz Premium BB Beauty Balm SPF 45
What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Sulfates
- Phthalates 

I first heard about this brand when a friend starting using it and wearing it to the gym. I loved the fresh light look it gave her and was in hopes it would work for me. I was very happy with it and plan to repurchase the Black Label Detox first in the full size.

I am not sure how long this kit will be available but I would head to Sephora and pick it up!

I only want to share a product when it is something that I really love and here it is............ you must try ExfoliKate. You will see results after the first use. My face is so clean and smooth, you will love it.

Here is the description that Sephora gives for this product.

This signature formula works both physically and enzymatically to deliver safe, dramatic results in one application. It effectively combats acne and blackheads, reduces discoloration, and polishes skin for a smooth complexion. Welcome to healthy skin, a healthy glow, and a healthy you.

What else you need to know:
This expert formula harnesses the power of fruit enzymes to clarify skin by removing dead cells and eliminating bacteria. It is ideal for all skin types, except sensitive skin.

This product is amazing and will stay as one of my must have items. I use it twice a week and look forward to using it every time.

Here is a little peak into our week with the 4th of July weekend.

We were able to run grab dinner at Bonefish before starting our holiday weekend break. Bonefish always does such a great job and dinner is so good.
Traffic was crazy everywhere we went. Lines and lines of traffic so patience was a must.

We headed out for a day of shopping and guess what we are shopping for..........................
Yes, we are looking at purchasing Kayaks for all of us. We plan to start going on a water adventure at least once a month. The good thing with a kayak is we can go 10 months out of the year. You can burn several hundred calories and your arms will look great! The views are amazing and its always an adventure.

Then we ended our weekend by seeing Magnificent. It was so good and I highly recommend it. I just feel in love with her character. On a side note every time I saw her I thought about the Mac red lipstick! A must see!
Happy 4th of July friends!!!

Graduation Day

This past year I took part in the most amazing program with my city as part of a Leadership Program for up and coming leaders in the city. I would highly recommend that you should look into a program like this in your city. I thought I knew everything about my city but was amazed how much new information I now have. This program is one that you have to have your new submitted by someone that would recommend you. Then you go for an interview and only 40 or so people will be selected. I felt honored to be one of them.

Here is a look at graduation day!

I had the opportunity to meet so many new people. The fun part of this is the program tries to pick people from different career fields. We had attorneys from different fields, a police office, a deputy, real estate, banking, construction, vice presidents, doctors, and so on. Just an amazing opportunity to meet so many different people.

This was the day of our graduation. I wanted to grab pictures from as many people from my group because they were just such fun people.

We are in our seats waiting to make our presentation on our project we were assigned.

This was the morning of the graduation as we were walking out the door!

Above was my group making our presentation before the class. I was very pleased with the job we did and the amazing job the other groups also did.

This was one of the other groups giving their presentation. Each group was given a topic to help better out city.  I just cant explain what an amazing experience this was and I walked away with so much more knowledge about my great City!

Reese's Brownies Recipe

I found this recipe on Pinterest and gave it a try for Fathers Day. I normally do not like to try a new dish on the day of the event but since we are training for my half marathon Im not in the kitchen just making sweet treats!
The brownies were good but if I made this again in the future I would use a box brownie because its easier without loosening the taste. I actually prefer the taste of boxed brownies to homemade. I would still construct it like the recipe calls for and the peanut butter icing would still be great.
Homemade recipe
1 cup of butter softened
2 cups of sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/3 cup flour 
24 mini Reese peanut butter cups unwrapped
1/2 cup butter softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp. milk or more if you need
1/4 cup peanut butter
7 Mini Reese's Peanut Butter cups unwrapped and chopped

 Preheat oven to 330 degrees F.
Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl.

Add eggs and beat well.
Add vanilla and salt and mix until blended.

Stir in cocoa and flour until evenly mixed in. Be careful not to over-beat.

Spray a 9x13 with cooking spray and spread half of the brownie batter on the bottom. This is challenging so be slow.

Place align unwrapped Mini Reese's cups 6x4 evenly across pan (6 down by 4 across).

Carefully spread remaining half of brownie batter over the top. Again go slow because this is a challenge.

Bake at 330 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until batter is cooked through and toothpick comes out clean. Don't overcook and make sure to do the toothpick test in the batter and not a Reese's cup

Let cool completely. Very important to cool completely.

While brownies are cooling, make Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting. To make: Beat butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, milk and peanut butter until smooth or creamy. Add more powdered sugar/milk to reach desired consistency.

Spread frosting over cooled brownies and top with chopped Mini Reese's cups.

Roasted Asparagus Recipe

This is such an easy side dish to make and goes with everything. Break the ends of your asparagus and lay on a sprayed dish or pan. Top with a quick splash of olive oil and then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Top with chopped garlic.
Place in 400 degree oven and cook until the asparagus reaches the level you like. Its usually about 20 minutes. If you like your asparagus cooked to a very tender level I would cook without garlic for 10 minutes then add garlic to finish cook. This will help the garlic to not burn. 

Its that easy!
