Rodan+Fields Giveaway

I’d like to introduce all of you to a friend of mine.

Actually, I’ve never met Marina in person, but she has been a “blog friend” of mine for nearly five years now. She designed my very first blog design for Blue-Eyed Bride when I first started. Yes, Marina is the designer behind Penny Lane Designs. She has designed all of my blog designs since then, and her talent always blows me away.


This is Marina and her sweet family. She’s a boy mom, too!

And now she is an independent consultant for Rodan + Fields. Rodan + Fields   is a clinical skincare line created by the people who gave us ProActiv.

After talking with Marina, I decided on a skin care regimen that would fit my needs best. Now that I’m 30 I thought it would be best for me to go with the Anti-Aging regimen, but my skin has been a mess lately. With the pregnancy and then the loss, I have had really bad breakouts that I’ve had trouble getting under control.


Marina recommend the Unblemish regimen for me, and I have been so pleased. I took a “before” picture and in a couple of months I will show you the “after” picture.

Please go take a look at the website that Marina set up for Blue-Eyed Bride readers so you can find out a little bit more about Marina and about the fantastic skin care products!

A little bit about Rodan + Fields:

  • R+F is a skincare line created by the doctors who created ProActiv and is geared toward adult skincare concerns including aging skin, sensitive skin, sun damage and adult acne
  • R+F was the #1 selling clinical line at Nordstrom before it was pulled from high end retail and made available exclusively through independent consultants
  • They offer a 60 day money back guarantee on all product

Marina is very generously giving away one full skincare regimen of your choice to one lucky reader! This is over a $100 value!

I’m so excited for some of you to try this out and see why I’m so excited!

You can get a few entries by leaving a comment, sharing about the giveaway on Facebook, and by signing up for Marina’s email list. Just follow Rafflecopter for all the instructions.

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. Existing Rodan+Fields customers and consultants are not eligible to win.

Cetaphil: tried and true works best!

Is there ever a time in our lives when we can stop worrying about our skin? We worry about too much sun. We worry about wrinkles. We worry about break-outs. Then we worry about oily skin or dry skin.

Remembering to take care of my skin has become so important to me, but I always get really overwhelmed with all of the options. I was recently given the opportunity to review Cetaphil products, and I was so excited because within the past six months I had become a loyal Cetaphil customer.

I had become so tired of all of the overpriced products. My bathroom cabinet was full of moisturizers, cleansers, toners, sunscreens, night creams, day creams. I think you get the point. It was overwhelming, expensive, and time-consuming. Not to mention confusing. Which is the best? Why do I need all of those products in the first place?

Then one day when I was at the drug store, I spotted the Cetaphil products on the shelf. My dermatologists have always recommended Cetaphil products to me. They don’t break the bank, and most importantly, they’re gentle and effective for the skin.

My new daily routine includes washing my face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and then applying Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 before applying my makeup. The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is gentle on my skin and fragrance-free. It helps to control oily skin and helps prevent dryness in the winter months.

The temperatures today were in the low 50s, but the sun was shining, and it felt like a gorgeous 70 degree day. But that bright sun can be so tricky when getting ready in the mornings. I love that I can wear sunscreen every day with the Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 without having that heavy sunscreen smell or the heavy sunscreen texture underneath my makeup. I know that I am protected from the sun’s harmful rays and I can still go about my regular beauty routine.

I love that even in my 30s, I can help prevent wrinkles and help prevent break-outs with two easy, inexpensive steps. I love Cetaphil products enough to use them on my own children. I know that they’re safe and gentle enough for everyone in our family.

{Giveaway} Day 11 of Favorite Things: Large Utility Tote from Thirty-One Gifts

The large utility tote from Thirty-One Gifts had to be one of the favorite things this year. I have three of these bags and I use them for everything!

I used it as a beach bag. I use it to take food to people’s houses because it holds dishes nicely. I use it to hold toys on road trips and I used it during the Singing Christmas Tree for my wardrobe bag every night. It’s just the perfect bag!

It comes in lots of different patterns and colors and even some team colors. I need the Gamecock version for tailgating next fall!

Kodi is a rep for Thirty-One Gifts and she is so great to work with. Kodi has such a great story to share about her experience with Thirty-One Gifts.
