Land of Forgotten Pictures

Here is a bunch of pictures I meant to do a post on earlier in the year, because sometimes, things just don't get posted.

Post-Christmas and Feeling Blessed.


And we are back! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday week and spent lots of time with your family. After the week was over I had an overwhelming feeling of just being blessed. Blessed for all that I have and the family/friends that support me.

I am really excited to kick off the new year and I have so many ideas already flowing through my head.

I think the most impressive part of the week was the amount of time it took our family to take our family pictures. Literally, I think we set a record. Something about the youngest being 14 now and the rest of us being in college/graduated from college has made us cooperate a bit more. Now I am not saying it was perfect, because it wasn't, but it was really quick!

Isn't Remington photogenic? As soon as the camera starts snapping he is so well behaved and poses pretty for us.

Skincare Changeup, Time for Something New

 photo KissInstaWaveReview_zps248a78fc.jpg

Every now and then I like to switch things up and try something totally new. I feel like this is the best way to keep my skin under control, because if I stay with one routine too long my face gets used to it and starts freaking out again. There are definitely some products that last through these phases and never leave my skincare routine (aka my spot control treatment, face brush, lotions), but I will always try some new ones.

This phase of new products I am giving a shot is InstaNatural and it is sold on Amazon. I ran across this brand on Brand Backer and I was lucky enough for them to choose me to review some of their line. This is a wide variety of products, everything from supplements to multi-purpose oils. I am really excited to give it all a shot.

That being said here is how this review is going to go, because I want to really give this stuff a shot and give you an honest review. To start off I am going to tell you about the brand itself and what each product is supposed to do. Then I will check in each week (probably two or three weeks) with  my progress and feelings about all of the products so far. Sound good? I think so!


WTH is InstaNatural?
InstaNatural offers a range of beauty products focused on using natural and organic ingredients. We manufacture and distribute high quality products, while focusing our attention on our customers.

(and there is one other brand too, also found throgh BrandBacker)

Oh, and what is ZenWise?
ZenWise Labs is an online distributor of supplements designed to improve your everyday life. Our Goal is to dramatically enhance the health of our customers through high quality products and excellent customer care. All of our products are All Natural, Made in the USA, and GMP certified, so you know that you’re getting the strength, composition, quality, and purity displayed on the label.


So, what products am I trying? Glad you asked...

Let Christmas Week Begin!

 photo ChrismasWeekT_zps67c2915e.jpg

Eeek! I am so excited everyone! It is finally Christmas week, and not only is it happy because of the holiday but I also get to see some faces I really am missing. 

But, thinking back to this weekend....

Friday, was my company Christmas party and that was a blast and a half. I ended up winning $20 in Family Feud too so that was cool also. After we left from there, we headed to Nate's Aunt and Uncle's house and played Cards Against Humanity with all the cousins and his family. That game is probably my new favorite, I'm not going to lie.

Saturday, I had lunch with the girls in the family and then did some housework before getting ready for the hockey game. The game was probably my favorite yet because there was a little kid that was just cuter than cute.

He walked up to me as we were handing out pass-outs before the game and asked "What are you doing later?" and then ran back to his dad. As they walked away he stopped by again and said "I'll see you later!" Melted my heart. We went up and took a picture with him later and gave him a bobble head and he was on Cloud 9.

Sunday was family time. Lots of unhealthy snacks and some healthy yelling at the Colts to get it in gear...they didn't listen. It was great to start the week off with family.

I can't wait for Christmas, so excited!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Week!
