Happy happy Friday, friends!
Yesterday afternoon, Andrew and Smith came back to Nantucket and this weekend, Kensington will make her way here too. The Shull Six will wrap up our summer on Nantucket and then head back to McKinney for the start of a new school year. We are all excited about this upcoming fall (so many BIG transitions for our family this school year!), but before we head back, I want to make sure I’m super plugged in and enjoy every minute of these next few days. So…I will be blogging today and then taking a break to enjoy my family time until Monday, August 7th.
As much as I will miss being here with you guys next week, I think I will miss not being in the moment with my peeps even more, so have a wonderful weekend, a lovely week, and I’ll see you August 7th.
Now, it’s time for my weekly Faves 🙂 .
Cue the Christmas carols (did someone say The Carpenters?!), pour yourself a peppermint mocha, turn on the twinkle lights and enjoy Fave #1 because it combines two of my VERY FAVORITE THINGS…
Woohoo!!!!! When my very favorite skincare brand Colleen Rothschild Beauty reached out and asked if I wanted to collaborate this week here on my blog for their CHRISTMAS IN JULY SALE, I was like YES, YES, YES, PLEASE!
You guys, I LOVE COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD BEAUTY! I’ve been using this skincare exclusively and talking about it repeatedly now for YEARS.
My own mom (and several of my dear friends!) were loving it so much and seeing healthier, more radiant, true results that it was easy for me to try the first time and even easier to fall in love with it.
You guys know I love all things beauty, but did you know what my mom and her mom both instilled in me? Spend your time, energy and money on SKINCARE and not makeup. Glowing and healthy skin should be your first priority and then add makeup to enhance but not cover. You don’t need to cover up great skin…so work on that first!
I love Colleen Rothschild Beauty and truly see results when I use it each day. Right now…
…if you use code JULY25, you will receive 25% off site-wide through July 31st! That is a HUGE savings!
I went into my BATHROOM BAG and pulled my tried and true faves to remind you of what I love to buy and use myself…
I love so many Colleen Rothschild Beauty products, but these six here have been my superstars this summer on Nantucket.
#1: RADIANT CLEANSING BALM is always the #1 product I recommend. I take my makeup off and wash my face with this every single day. You know how sometimes when you wash your face, your skin feels tight right after? This does the complete opposite. Not only does it remove even the most stubborn waterproof eye makeup, but it leaves your skin more hydrated and moisturized without feeling heavy or greasy. After years of using this, I cannot imagine using anything else to cleanse my skin and remove my makeup.
#2: VITAMIN C NOURISHING CREAM is a new-er addition to my skincare routine. I first started using this as my nighttime moisturizer this spring and am already on my second jar. It’s so hydrating and moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling really great the next morning. Speaking of Vitamin C…
#3: VITAMIN C BRIGHTENING SERUM is also a new-er addition to my skincare routine. I have always loved using vitamin C serums, so I was PUMPED when this was added to their collection. I bought it right away and haven’t looked back. I apply just a bit of this to my face and neck every morning before my daytime moisturizer.
#4: RETINOL SUPREME EYE SERUM is one of the products I’ve been using since Day #1! I just looked back on my blog, and I first blogged about this eye serum in 2019. I bought this because my mom told me this was one of her staple products…and now, it’s mine too. I like to apply a thin layer under my eyes both morning and night as part of my skincare routine.
#5: AGE RENEWAL SUPER SERUM is my evening serum that I apply after I cleanse and before I moisturize. It truly is a “super” serum packing quite a punch with more than 20 ingredients to fight the six signs of aging (texture, dehydration, elasticity, fine lines, radiance and tone). I’ve used it for YEARS and truly think it’s made a huge difference with my skin. If you only try one of these products right now, I would say this is the BIGGEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! This serum is basically like six serums in one and right now with promo code 25JULY, it goes from $95 to $71.25 which is a big savings for such a super star serum. My mom and I both use this as part of our daily routine.
#6: SHEER RENEWAL CREAM has been my daily go-to moisturizer since 2019. I wear this every single day regardless if I’m going out, staying in, wearing makeup or not. It’s light, not heavy, not greasy and yet super hydrating and easy to wear under SPF and makeup.
So, just to recap, here are MY MORNING FAVES:
And here are my EVENING FAVES:
So, don’t forget, right now through the 31st, everything is 25% off site-wide at Colleen Rothschild Beauty with code 25JULY.
One last thing to think about is…
…THE DISCOVERY COLLECTION! Whether you’re like me and want travel-sized items to take with you on trips or if you’re not sure and just want to try out some of Colleen Rothschild’s most popular products at a great price is travel-sized containers, this kit is for you! This + AGE RENEWAL SUPER SERUM would make an excellent starting point for a new skincare routine!
Christmas in July and skincare makes for a GREAT Friday Fave! Thank you, Colleen Rothschild Beauty for partnering with me today!
My second Fave this week was an easy one…
…it’s my JULY BOOK REVIEW! The beach plus a book and I’m one happy girl! Make sure you check out the post AND THE COMMENT SECTION for your new great summer read!
Ashby, Mades and me enjoyed our Girl Week! We missed the other half of our family, but it was certainly fun to let them be in charge of our days. On Wednesday, we headed into town around 3:00. Our first stop was a snack at The Green Market…
…followed by strolling town and doing a little shopping.
We might have stopped for a little candy (her mouth, ha!)…
…they selected dinner at The Charlie Noble…
…and no evening in town could be complete without…
…a stop at The Juice Bar 🙂 .
Hi, my name is Shay, and I’m currently addicted to The Great British Baking Show. I used to watch it regularly, but I stopped a few seasons ago and well, I’m back. A new season just dropped on Wednesday, so this week, I’ve been catching up with Season 10. It’s just so lovely. Everyone is nice, there isn’t any foul language or violence, it’s sweet, peaceful, educational, relaxing…it’s just quality TV.
Speaking of the YARD & SHOWER TOUR, after my outdoor shower yesterday, I snapped this pic as I made my way to my closet to get ready…
…you guys, THESE MICRO FIBER HAIR TOWELS are a total Fave of mine! I have a lot of hair and yet, it wraps up nice and neat and easily in these towels. Plus, it helps my hair dryer faster and doesn’t make it frizzy. I love them!
Alright, I’m out until August 7th! I hope you all have a wonderful week! I’ll see you in McKinney, TX! xx
