Random Ramblings

It's been a while since I've shared some random thoughts and today is the perfect day.  We just got back from 10 days at the lake.  We spent the holiday weekend there and then had friends up for the week following the Fourth.  Getting back home after being gone so long has my head going in a million different random directions so y'all are just going to have to go with it!

Lake Vacation
Our trip to the lake was a little different than our normal weekends up there because we had such a long time to be there and relax.  We got to see fireworks over the water and then our friends from Florida came for the week and we had a blast.  It felt good to get home, but we were all missing them when we woke up at home yesterday morning instead of there together.  

EVER Skincare
My friend, Katie, introduced me to EVER Skincare the a while back and I have been using it for several months now.  I haven't shared it on the blog yet because I really wanted to give it time to start to work so I could give it a really truthful review and the truth is that I really am loving it.  I love the way my skin is feeling and looking and dare I say that I feel like some of my wrinkles have started disappearing?!?  I've been using the Peel Pads which are basically like a gentle chemical peel in a pad.  At first they made my face burn, but now I LOVE them.  It removes dead cells and helps clear and reduce the appearance of pores.  I've also been using this Serum which is really what I think is making my redness and wrinkles go away.  

EVER is a clinical grade skincare free of sulfates, paragons, chemical sunscreens and synthetic fragrances.  Basically all of that means it is made from only the BEST ingredients to maximize results.  What's even more cool to me is that this skincare was created by the CEO of Stella & Dot.  So, not only does it offer amazing products, but it also gives women the opportunity to get involved in a supportive and flexible career with lots of income potential.  

If you want to check out EVER Skincare for yourself you can take a look at Katie's website HERE and contact her with any questions you might have.  Also as a special for our Magnolia Mama readers, if you place an order through her site, you will receive a free product!  

Erin Condren Life Planner
I go my new Erin Condren Life Planner last week and I am so excited.  I tired to keep my calendar on my phone and it just wasn't happening for me.  I need to write it down, make lists, and be able to see my week as a whole.  This is my third year with one of these planners and it has totally changed how I stay organized.  It's fun to personalize the front and back cover with the smiling faces I love.  

I also love the vertical weekly layout and feel like it is perfect for me.  I often have commitments morning, afternoon and night that I need to remember and keep track of and this planner lets me do that.  Here's a snapshot from last year to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about. I love the sections for Morning, Afternoon, and Night and I also love the side where I can make my to-do lists and the bottom where I can plan for meals, my blog content, etc.  

And, for $5 extra you can make your planner an 18 month calendar, meaning it will run the school year.  For me, that is how my brain works and I love that I don't have to switch over to a new calendar right after Christmas.  So, I use mine from August through July and then start over again.  

So how's that for random?  Told you my mind was all over the place. :-) I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!!!
