Glen Ivy Hot Springs New Urban Longevity Facial with Skin Regimen

Sponsored content. All opinions are my own.Ā  Everyone needs a day to relax after having stressful mornings, work days, and/or weeks. Every night we find ways to decompress, but the relief is short-lived, because we do it to ourselves again the next day. Often times, we don’t think about the long-term wears on our mind and body. What I learned from attending a Skin Regimen info session at Glen Ivy lately is that the damages we do to our bodies internally also shows up on our skin because our bodies want to rid of it somehow so it comes out through our pores. Skin Regimen, a new skincare brand formulated … READ MORE

prAna New Spring Active Wear, Everywhere – Workout Then Errands

I am loving my prAna pieces from their new Spring line. It is super comfortable, and stylish enough to wear while running errands. I am sure I am not the only one that love athleisure wear. I wore this the other day, was in it most of the day, and didn’t want to take them off – I grabbed coffee with a friend, dropped off children, and wore it to my doctor’s appointment. Most of the time, I can’t wear my yoga clothes out, because they’re either not stylish or I don’t want to smell all day. The Ostara Top that I’m wearing in Coal is made with organic cotton, … READ MORE

Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa’s Better With Friends Special

Is winter finally here in Southern California? I’m not really sure because one minute it’s chilly and the next minute we are back in t-shirts and flip flops. We have had unusual weather all year. If you’re looking for a break to escape from all the stress, consider Glen Ivy Hot Springs for a warm, relaxing retreat that’s not too far away. I was just there with friends, because spa days are always better with friends. With strategic planning, we headed there after drop-offs, changed into our bathing suits, walked around in our bathrobes, had services, met up for lunch and cocktails, lounged around in hot pools and played in … READ MORE

Tummy Tuck – My Top 10 Reasons Why I Would Do It Again

Tummy Tucks (aka Mommy Makeovers) are no joke. It is a serious commitment that takes months to prepare for, plus you have downtime which requires you to rely on others for support. I say “months” but it could take years, because you’ll need time to research, find the right doctor, and mentally prepare. Let’s face it, it’s a scary process! I’ve had two kids and my youngest is eight years old. It was time for a change, and I wanted my body back. Once you are convinced you have found “the” doctor, you have to schedule the operation, and you’ll also need time to run errands, line up support, do … READ MORE

New Year, New Me!

MOMMY MAKEOVER UPDATE I saw my surgeon this week. It has been about five months and two weeks since my Tummy Tuck with Dr. Brian Reagan at CosmetiCare. It was another post-op follow-up visit, and he wants to see me again at ten months. My visit went well, and it’s nice that they still care and check on me even when they have seen me several times already. I always feel welcomed, and their team is extremely friendly and helpful. I always felt better knowing that they specialize in these types of procedures and that their doctors are well-known in the industry.Ā  Thankfully, I haven’t had any problems, andĀ I still … READ MORE

New Body, New Wardrobe Needed After Tummy Tuck

The holidays are here, and I don’t know what to wear! If you have been following my Mommy Makeover Journey with Dr. Brian Reagan at CosmetiCare, it has been an eventful last few months. I had my procedure done in August, and the recovery within the last five months have gone extremely smoothly with no complications. I was already out and about after two weeks, and most people were surprised I was out so soon. I still feel mild sensitivity in my abdominal area and the scars could be lighter, but I’m feeling about 90-95%. My old clothes just doesn’t fit the same, because remember I used to get them … READ MORE

It’s My First Time Getting BOTOX!

I went intoĀ CosmetiCare Medspa for my first BOTOX treatment. It’s suppose to help freeze my 11’s between my eyebrows. When I was younger I was very proud that I was able to make facial expressions that my friends couldn’t do. Well now after years of raising my eyebrows and making funny faces, the creases are there even though I’m not using those muscles. From what I understand, as time passes our skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines remain even when our muscles aren’t moving. BOTOX is meant to be preventative and it will help make me look more rested as well as look natural.   … READ MORE
