Well, I made it. One month into the no spend for six months challenge. I have to admit, I am pretty impressed with myself for sticking to the rules. The following are products used up:
I received this product from Influenster free to try. It came in 7 small sample packets that I was able to use twice a day. The trial period intended was twice a day for 7 days and I was committed to completing this challenge. I have tried a few Perricone products but not enough to truly form an opinion about the brand. Overall, I know it is a brand that in results focused, but also pretty pricey.
After my seven day trial of the Perricone MD Cold Plasma+ Face, I did notice an overall improvement in skin texture and evenness. I liked that the smell was not overpowering and the texture of the product itself was very nice. Unfortunately, a 1 Oz size jar of this product retails for $149. So, even though I did enjoy using this product, I don’t think I would ever consider paying $149 to add this to my skin care regimen.
I admit it. I’m addicted to shopping.
Wow. I can’t believe summer is already over. It feels like we were just heading into summer moments ago. I truly feel as if every year goes by faster than the last. That being said, my apparent absence from my blog for the past few months have not been from lack of trying. It just seems that there are moments where time simply slips through your fingers. You blink your eyes, only to wake up months later, watching the leaves starting to fall and the school buses shuttling the kids back to school.
It has been one crazy roller coaster of a year, and it isn’t even close to being over! With travels starting in January with a quick weekend in Miami and a hockey trip to Wisconsin, followed by a week of sun in Mexico in February. Then a girls trip to South Carolina and Nashville in April. I followed that one up with another girls trip to Kentucky to scratch off the Derby from my bucket list. There were two weddings before my big family trip to Florida in July.
There were also some setbacks that I didn’t see coming. Learning to overcome the moments where life literally slaps you across the face and reminds you that you aren’t running the show is still something I need to learn. Nevertheless, I left my job in June and started a new adventure in July, and moved that month as well.
It has definitely been non-stop, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am hoping with the summer winding down and my new job in place, I will be able to focus more on Caviar and why I wanted to start this thing in the first place.
