Mother Knows Best

Some of the best (and only) advice my mom gave me was to MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE. I have dry skin with large pores that tend to clog, so I have to have a balanced and consistent beauty regime. Because of this (or just because of luck), I have always had what I consider to be pretty good skin. Not amazing, but nothing to complain about. Aside from the clogged pores, of course.

So here's what I do (if you care):

I switch cleansers every other day between Cetaphil and Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub. About once a week I use a blackhead scrub instead.

On Mondays, after I wash my face, I put on a moisturizing mask. I use Boots No. 7 Intensive Moisture Mask.

I use Oil of Olay Total Effects eye cream nightly. Although I am almost out of this and am thinking of switching to something else. Any suggestions? I'm sure after the baby comes I will need something for circles and puffiness.

For night cream I currently use Olay Definity Night Restorative Sleep Cream but when I run out of that I am switching to Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Protective Creme. Then I go to bed.

In the morning, I don't wash my face or anything. I just put on Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50 moisturizer under my makeup. I like Lancome Teint Miracle in Buff 4C. It's really light but covers really well.

Do you have any miracle beauty products or routines?

To Do

A short list of things I'd like to get to but most likely won't:

1. Fix tub
2. New moulding in dining room
3. Fix giant hole in entryway
4. Plant flowers
5. Install one of those things under the sink so the garbage slides out
6. Organize comic books
7. Pregnancy exercise DVD
8. Get rid of branches that keep falling into our yard

Things I will probably do instead:

1. Eat cookies
2. Internet
3. Snuggle the kitties

New Addition

So, we got a new kitten. His name is Henry. This is him.

Yeah, he's pretty cute.

Also, the doctor says the baby is not a giant and what I am feeling is "normal."
