Boy was this a busy weekend. I’m ready for some good night sleep. But first I’m excited to try Sio Beauty patches that help build collagen, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and maintain radiant skin while you sleep. They work in one night and over time! Even if you are not in your 40’s like me, you can start using these now to prevent wrinkles or from going under the knife.
Currently obsessed with the boy brow and stretch concealer by Glossier. The boy brow helps to thicken, fill in, and groom brows into place. It doesn’t stiffen or flake. The concealer covers everything from dark circles to redness and blemishes. It contains nourishing oils that give a dewy, glowing finish.
It’s hard to always eat healthy on the go. Between meetings and dropping off the kids at school I try to grab something green and yummy. Green juices (ok...and coffee) give me lots of energy, and a healthy salad is always a good idea to get me going through the day.
This eye cream is a must for us woman over 40. Apply the eye cream around the eyes.. I also use it on the area around the lips-hoping my wrinkles will go away. YES, I start getting wrinkles around the lips and I am not very happy about it... But what can I do.. That’s how it is when you get older.

The other day I was running around with my kids to soccer games, to ballet class, and getting ready for our annual family photo shoot. In the middle of the craziness I decided to go to Wood and Rowan to get a blow out for the shoot (I was gonna do it myself, but let's be real…..). It was the best detour ever! It only took 30 minutes to get my hair done which is gold for this mom on the go.
Wood Rowan is Napa’s newest blow out bar for the working woman or busy moms. They also provide natural nail spa services with all natural non-chemical nail products. If you are looking for a quick polish or to spend an afternoon getting pampered with a wax and blowout from one of their amazing stylists call today to reserve your spot.
Taking care of yourself doesn't have to cost a fortune. Below are some of the beauty items of which I'm currently obsessed. Go ahead click on the links and treat yourself because when mommy is happy everyone is happy!
I got this Oh My Brow highlighter from Popsugar Must Have and I'm absolutely in love! You can instantly lift your brows by blending it along your brow bone, widen eyes by applying it on your inner corners, or add glow to your cheekbones.
I've been using Maybelline mascara since I was in college. If you have short eyelashes like me, this is the most affordable way to extend those lashes. A must in my make-up bag!
I don't wear much make up now days, and when I do I like to look effortless and natural. This palette is perfect for a natural subtle look.
Recently I found this set of brushes at my local Walgreen's. They work wonders!
All moms out there, Laneige water bank soothing gel mask is so good….all you need is 30 minutes before you go to bed once a week. Your face will look so fresh and hydrated the next morning. It's like a free Botox ;-)
Artis Elite Oval 10 Brush perfect for blending foundation and highlighting powder on the face or body.
Paula Dorf Eye Primer keeps shadow in place all day.
Tom Ford Moisturecore Lip Color, Scandola perfect for summer days.

I recently came across LANEIGE skin care line at Target and let me tell you.. what a discovery! I've been using the firming sleeping mask and it has already strengthen my skin, and helps restore firmness overnight. What I love the most is that you can go to sleep relaxed and wake up with skin that looks and feels firmer, and refreshed.

I like to keep three different shades of lipsticks in my make-up bag for different occasions. In the morning before I leave to house I like to apply a little of Dinoplatz lip balm to give some color and fullness to my lips. When I have a meeting in the day time, my new favorite shade is the shocking coral by Maybelline. And for date nights I always use a darker shade like this one from NARS.
With summer just around the corner, it’s time for me to get prepped for another 20-Pound Challenge with Napa Valley Fitness Revolution. This will be my third challenge and I can’t tell you how excited my husband and I are to get back at it. The challenges reshape our bodies, clears our minds, and resets our overall well being through proper nutrition and training. It's all backed by a team of coaches that gets participants to move better, look better, and feel better...all in just 42 days. It works every time for us. And we're ready to do it again. I highly recommend this type of program to anyone looking to make a difference in their fitness and diet, and my husband does too.
So how to stick with the program? Join the challenge with your partner, best friend, or a family member. I have to say having my husband in the challenge really helped both of us stay on track and hold each other accountable. Having others join you also worked really well with a five person team challenge we did last fall. But if you can't find someone to join, you can do it. In fact, my husband's first challenge was one he did himself. He dropped 20lbs! Napa Valley Fitness Revolution has numerous individual success stories.
What other benefits do you get by joining the challenge? You will set good examples for your family and will get them involved. I took my daughter to one of the free cooking demonstration by one of our coaches, Tay Espinosa, so that she can learn that prepping healthy food it's actually fun, easy and delicious. This is another reason I tell everyone that our gym its not like any other. They are a community that truly cares about you!
So are you ready for a spring cleaning? Let me hear you say "Yes, I am READY". Join today and use code: momlikethat and get $25 off registration. Promotion ends Thursday 3/31.
See you at the gym!
This multiple stick from NARS is one of my favorite things in my bag. I use it on my cheeks and lips. The creamy formula makes it so easy to apply. This color is perfect for creating a glowing look.
This moisturizer from Weleda is packed with botanical extracts and enriched with sunflower oil which helps to repair dry and flaky skin. I love using it on my face, hands, and feet on days when it's extra dry. It's a great creme and you can't beat the price!
This lavender foaming bath from L’Occitane is a staple in my bathroom. Every time I take a bath I pour a small amount under running hot water and the lavender scent is so relaxing. Perfect for stressful days.
