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.

{Giveaway} Day 10 of Favorite Things: Melissa & Doug Easel

In light of this weekend’s tragic events, the giveaway schedule was postponed. We’ll be posting days 10 & 11 today and day 12 on Wednesday. 

Today’s giveaway is for a Melissa & Doug art easel. Hudson got this last year for Christmas and I can’t say enough great things about the quality. It is a great piece that I know our kids will use for years.

And I know it will brighten the Christmas of a lucky little boy or little girl this year!

{Giveaway} Day 9 of Favorite Things: Ugg Dakota Slippers

First things first…. today I want to wish a very happy birthday to the most wonderful friend a gal could ask for. Today is Nina’s birthday!! Send her some love when you hop over to her blog today!

Day 9 of Erin and Nina’s 12 Days of Favorite Things is all about the Ugg Dakota slippers.

Last year, I used some Christmas gift cards to buy myself a pair of these slippers, and I have worn them every single day or night since then.

They are so warm and cozy. They’re perfect for hanging around the house. And I’ll be perfectly honest and tell you that I’ve even worn them to the grocery store a couple of times in the winter because they were just too warm to take off my feet.

They’re adorable and look cute with pajamas and loungewear. Trust me… once you realize how heavenly they feel, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

We’re giving away a pair (winner’s choice of color and winner’s size)  to one lucky reader!

{Giveaway} Day 8 of Favorite Things: Low Country Luxe “High Cotton” Candle

For our first wedding anniversary, Todd and I visited Savannah, Georgia. I was about 8 months pregnant with Hudson at the time. We had a great trip trying different restaurants, sight seeing, and doing some occasional shopping.

We went into The Paris Market on Broughton Street and I instantly fell in love with that store. I could have stayed in there for hours just looking at all the different, beautiful things. Every time I turned a corner I found something else that was just so unique and wonderful.

This was the day I found Low Country Luxe candles, which is our Favorite Thing for today.

Low Country Luxe candles are made in Savannah and have many fragrant southern botanical scents to choose from. My personal favorite scent is “High Cotton.” It smells of citrus trees, dogwood, tea olive spiked with lemon and lime, white grapefruit, and peach.

It is such a clean, fresh scent, and it has been my favorite year-round candle ever since I first smelled it.

Today we’re giving away a High Cotton candle from Low Country Luxe, valued at $55.00!

{Giveaway} Day 7 of Favorite Things: My Southern Accent

Featured in the Southern Living Christmas Guide for 2011! 

My friend, Wendy, is the writer of the blog A Southern Accent. Her blog was one of the very first blogs I ever read, and I just love her. She is a fantastic mommy to Walker, a talented designer, and she even came and took pictures of Hudson’s first birthday party. She is just so fun-loving and so creative and talented.

A couple of years ago, she started a print shop called My Southern Accent.

My Southern Accent offers digital prints and party print-ables that you print yourself – all delivered straight to your inbox within 24-48 hours of your order depending on your requests. If you don’t have a home printer, they can be printed from a flash drive at a local drug store or big box store, or uploaded to a photo sight online for printing. They do offer several prints in a printed version, but if you need something quick, the digital version is offered as well! The “Bless Your Heart” print was featured in the 2011 Southern Living Christmas Gift Guide and has been featured on numerous blogs.

For today’s giveaway, My Southern Accent is giving away 1) a printed version of the “Kiss My Grits” print (in navy), 2) a printed version of “Bless Your Heart” (in pink) ready for framing, and 3) a $24 credit to her shop, which covers 4 digital print versions.  That’s a $64 value!

These are such great gifts and everything in Wendy’s shop is a favorite of mine!

{Giveaway} Day 6 of 12 Days of Favorite Things: Coton Color Story of Luke ornament set

Today’s Favorite Thing is something that Nina introduced me to last Christmas.

The Coton Colors Story of Luke ornament set has become a favorite in our home for Christmastime. I love to read the gospel of Luke every December. I remember memorizing it in elementary school, and I’ve loved it ever since as my “favorite” for the Christmas story.

These gorgeous hand-painted ornaments have beautiful illustrations and also included the verses from the book of Luke. The ornaments tell the story of the birth of Jesus. Each ornament comes in its own package and has a pretty coordinating ribbon. These are great to give as gifts or to hang as a group on your family’s tree so you can share the Story of Luke with your family.

{Giveaway} Day 5 of Favorite Things: Kelly Moore Bag- Winner’s Choice

Okay, friends! Today’s giveaway is a big one.

Hopefully you’ve all heard of Kelly Moore Bags. These bags were originally designed to be camera bags, but they’re also diaper bags, carry on bags, and just a gorgeous every day handbag.

The thing that makes them so great is the different ways you can organize your bag. Your things are easy to find and easy to keep organized.

They are so beautiful in texture and color – and I love all of the new styles. My personal new favorite is the Libby.

I got the B-Hobo a few years ago and I have absolutely loved it. I put the Libby on my Christmas wish list this year.

The fabulous Kelly Moore is an old, dear friend of mine, and she was also our wedding photographer. She really just has the greatest camera bags, and her bags are multi-functional.

The winner of this giveaway will win her (or his) Kelly Moore Bag of choice! And believe me, there are so many gorgeous bags to choose from!
