Merry, merry Monday, friends!
You guys, it’s DECEMBER 11th, and my holiday-loving heart has a big assortment of festive Christmas cheer from our weekend to start off your week!
We. Are. Living. Our. Most. Festive. Lives. Right. Now.
Remember these days though…
…in their Christmas clothes, him with his plastic num-chuks 😉 .
On Saturday night, it was the annual MCKINNEY LIGHT PARADE which is my #1 favorite thing to do in McKinney, TX!
We met up with Erika and her kiddos and so many of our sweet friends for the festive fun!
We also ran into these two and their precious families. Mackenzie is my social media manager and Caroline is my office manager. I am so grateful both of these ladies work for me. They BOTH know how to read my mind (my apologies to them 😉 ) and both keep my world spinning. I am SO grateful for them!
I looked down and my little was sitting in my eldest’s lap. My mama heart loved seeing my three girlies down there watching together.
This is McKinney’s most epic event!
We’re no longer a small town, but it’s moments like this when we still feel like one.
Guess what? Guess what?
My very favorite skincare AND haircare brand Colleen Rothschild Beauty is collaborating with me today because they have a PROMO CODE!!
Today, with code CYBER, 30% off site wide (excludes bundles and advent calendars)!
Just as a reminder, here are some of my very favorite Colleen Rothschild products that I use every single day…
#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 an amazing part of my routine! I first started using this as my nighttime moisturizer this spring and am already on my third 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 another super affective part of my routine. 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…since 2019! I originally 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 CYBER, you get it for 30% off. 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.
What’s the best combination with great skincare?!
I told my mom that you guys were not going to believe this conversation happened, but I PROMISE YOU IT DID WHILE WE WERE HERE…
At The Breeze restaurant on Nantucket (we took a selfie to document it!). Mom mom told me that as much as she loves Colleen Rothschild Skincare, she has been using the haircare since my last blog post in November, and believe it or not, she thinks she might even love it more because it has CHANGED HER HAIR.
That’s what I said too.
She’s only used it less than a month and already sees a dramatic difference. Where my hair is very thick, my mom’s has always been thin, and she told me that she will never not use these hair products. #micdrop
Here’s what I do: Shampoo, then condition, get out of the shower and comb through my hair and then add a bit of the Protect & Perfect Styling Cream. At this point, I either let my hair air dry or I use my hair dryer to get it dry. Whenever I’m ready to apply heat with my curling iron or spruce up “second day hair”, I add a bit of the Smooth & Shine Hair Serum. That’s it! You can purchase the shampoo and conditioner individually or you can buy them as a “duo” (which is what I do). Right now though, it’s less expensive to buy the two separately than the duo! You’d receive the two for $43.40 when bought separately, while the bundle is $49.
So, don’t forget, right now, everything is 30% off site-wide at Colleen Rothschild Beauty with code CYBER.
Thank you, Colleen Rothschild Beauty for partnering with me today on this Merry Monday! I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again…I truly, truly think that in my 42 years, both my skin and my hair have never felt healthier. These products are hydrating, moisturizing, cleansing, smell lovely and leaving me feeling like my best self. It’s no wonder my mama is a fan too 🙂 .
Speaking of being a fan of things…
…I am a huge fan of of these people. We were on the square Friday night too (two nights in a row!) for dinner and shopping at the ski shop. Geez, I love them. Please note Teen Boy in the photo 😉 .
It’s just THE MERRIEST time of the year in McKinney!
One last thing for your Monday…
…I have the EASIEST MEAL PLANNING MONDAY because no one has time for complicated right now.
Merry Monday, friends! I hope you have the BEST start to your week! xx
