Collagenesis by Skinn Sunscreen Serum Review & Giveaway

Collagenesis by Skinn is one of the new Daily Defense, or DD creams, that has come to the market in recent months.  These DD creams are moisturizing, anti-aging and are loaded with antioxidants.  These antioxidants help fight free radicals in the air – things like air pollution and other ickiness.  As if that wasn’t enough, the Daily Defense creams usually have an SPF of 30, too. YAY, right?!?

The great folks at Skinn sent us a tube of Collagenesis to try out for ourselves. Collagenesis goes one step further. It is loaded with vitamins A, C, and E to help nourish your skin and combat the free radicals.  This cream helps keep your skin moisturized with its encapsulated formulas that slowly release over time.  As if that wasn’t enough, Collagenesis helps to heal your damaged skin tissue, too.

DIY Beach Candle Centerpiece


This DIY Beach Candle Centerpiece is a great centerpiece for just about any event. We made these for a beach themed wedding, but they can easily be changed up. Want to do Autumn instead? Use green, orange, and/or amber glass stones. You can even wrap some silk leaves around the outside, as long as you take care not to get them too close to the flame. Icy blue and white would be beautiful for winter, or red is gorgeous for Valentine’s Day.

Sinful Colors Halloween Nail Polish Review

I am slightly addicted to nail polish. When I see new colors, I tend to scoop them up without a second thought. They’re so pretty, and they sparkle in the bottle, and…I must have them.

sinful-colors-halloween-polishes (700 x 524)

Recently, I came across the Sinful Colors Halloween 2014 collection of nail polishes. There were a ton of polishes as part of this release. Maybe 15 different shades of nail polish.  However, when I started looking at them, there were a lot of re-releases or colors that are always available. I ended up picking up 5 of the colors.
