Guys. I turned THIRTY this past weekend. My sister and I share a birthday, she turned 20, plus it was Father's Day weekend so our family just went out to celebrate all three. Not going to lie, I felt a little cheated this year, ha! Regardless, I was excited for some family time and some cake 🍰 Why is cake so much better on your birthday??

A few things change as you get older. My priorities, wants, dreams are very different from even last year. Things I once considered boring years ago are now fun. I can't eat junk food without consequences (so sad). I've always known that time is valuable but I'm now also seeing (such a revelation!) how short life is. I feel like a completely different person now compared to the last few years. It's called personal growth and it is wonderful. Even my 'life plan' has changed tremendously. If you had told me ten years ago when I was busting my butt working full time while in school that I would be a licensed esthetician who decided photography was more my thing but also chose to blog on the side...I probably would have thought you were crazy. You think you have your entire life planned out then the universe comes and slaps you in the face like, WRONG!

One of my not-so-favorite changes that comes with age is how my skin can feel if I neglect it- even for just a day. You guys know I'm a skincare fanatic and it's just a fact for most people as they age that their skin gets a little more dry, a little more thin, and a bit less elastic. There are tons of products out there for anti-aging but the biggest thing for me is moisture. Not only does keeping your skin moisturized help with the look of your skin (boy does it help!), it also helps maintain a healthy balance. Do you know a lot of people lose a ton of moisture from their skin when they wash their face?? That's why it's so important to find a good facial cleanser that isn't too harsh and won't strip away all those good oils necessary to maintain a healthy balance. Olay Cleansing Infusion Facial Cleanser with deep sea kelp is my latest skincare obsession, it draws out impurities while the soy-based formula keeps you hydrated for a natural glow. I love that my face feels clean and refreshed but not dry and tight. Deep sea kelp and aloe extract hydrate, while soybean oil (an antioxidant) helps with past damage and leaves your skin soft and glowing. Antioxidants are so vital for good skin. They fight free radicals, which are unstable atoms that damage cells (from sun exposure, toxins, pretty much just day to day life) and help counteract the damage that those free radicals do. I found that one pump of this cleanser was enough and it lathers nicely. I have to have a lather when I wash my face. I know it's a mental thing but I just feel cleaner after, ha!  

And like I said, my idea of 'fun' has changed tremendously. A clean face, cup of tea, and a bath with lavender...this is my idea of an exciting night...which is exacty what I did after a fun dinner and some time spent with loved ones 👵 Welcome to thirty 💗
