Simple Beauty Routine


This fall my skin went kind of cuckoo.  I'm still nursing Ralphie, but I think I had some sort of hormonal swing and just got all out whack.  I'd heard amazing things about Elizabeth at SpaMD and she seriously worked magic on my face.  Like no more breakouts and a lot more glow.  She also gave me a lot of advice- her main point being that simple is best.  She encouraged me to add witch hazel after cleansing, as a toner, and it's truly helped so much.  I'm a mom and at the end of the day I basically just want to remove my eyeballs from their sockets and go to bed, I don't have time for a lot of creams and masks, so having a quick routine that works is, as Ophelia would say, "perf!"

1.  Hydrating, gentle cleanser
2.  Witch Hazel (make sure it's the no alcohol one, and I like the one with rosewater!)
3.  Soothing moisturizer
4.  A bonus I sometimes put on in the morning- this "golden elixir".  Seriously makes you glow!

Holiday Gift Guide: For Him


Let us welcome our guest editor, my loving husband, Ian.  A man who is not shy about his opinions, and buys himself everything he wants, thus the perfect person to provide us with a helpful men's gift guide.  


1.  This one is actually all me- I got Ian a sous vide last Christmas and it blew his mind.  He is the chef in our house, and it totally changed how he cooks.  Like his steak is better then it is from the grill.  
5.  "I am a bit a clean freak (note from Brittany: UM, A BIT??!!!)  and this also extends to my car. After four years of living with gross children I have finally found a solution to keeping the back seat of my beloved Jeep clean"
7.  "I’ve been on a bit of a Banana Republic kick lately mostly because it find it very difficult to buy pants that actually fit me. These do.  It's nice feeling like the circulation to my sack isn’t going to be cut off. " (Note from Brittany: inappropriate, I like to keep this blog PG).  
8.  "I use this thing at work. I spend a lot of time on the phone everyday, and I get up and balance on this.  Core strength, man.  Don't judge me".  
9.  "If I weren't already married, I would marry this thing.  Best appliance in my house.  If our house had a name it would be: Little Pieces of Shit Everywhere. This helps soothe me when I get in a cleaning rage"
