Meijer Beauty Perks + $25 Gift Card Giveaway

I switched over to Meijer for grocery shopping right before I had my son. Not only could I get my grocery shopping done there, but they also have a huge home goods section, pharmacy + drive thru, great beauty and cosmetics selection, and let's not forget, a Starbucks. There were many mornings on maternity leave that I sat in that Starbucks with a coffee in one hand, sleeping baby in the other, and relaxed.

Spring is in the air (especially in the Midwest) and Meijer is running their Meijer Beauty Perks program April 10-May 7. Again, one of the reasons I switched over to Meijer for my weekly grocery shopping is because of their large beauty selection. Here are few beauty essentials you can find on sale during this promotion, that are especially amazing for busy moms!

L'Oreal EverPure 6 in 1 Cleansing Balm
First off, this smells amazing! It's a rosemary mint scent that lasts throughout the day. This cleansing balm is a conditioner and cleanser in one. It's perfect for the quick 5 minute 'mommy' shower you have to take with kids in the house (long gone are the days of the long showers!). This balm cleanses, conditions, treats, detangles, softens and adds shine. No sulfates, parabens or silicones included. I thought for sure this would weight my hair down, but it didn't, and even looked good for the second day without washing.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream
I'm a huge Neutrogena fan, especially when it comes to skincare. This year's Michigan winter was pretty brutal, and has definitely taken a toll on my skin. I love their Hydro Boost line, specifically this Gel Cream for extra dry skin. It soaks right into my skin, and doesn't leave a greasy residue. Foundation also goes on really well over it.

Dr. Teal's Epsom Salts
I'm a firm believer that all moms need to be pampered! My idea of unwinding after a long day is taking a long, hot bath. I have extremely sensitive skin so unfortunately I can't use highly fragrant bubble bath, but I can, however, use Epsom Salts. They may not be as fun as a big bubble bath, but Epsom Salts will help to soothe sore muscle and help with muscle recovery. My son is 30+ lbs, so I need all the help I can get with my muscles!

Amope' Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File
I was skeptical when I read the packaing on this product - and turned out being pleasantly surprised! The Amope Electronic Foot File is all you need for an at home pedicure. Don't have the time to get an hour pedicure? This file is so awesome. You can use it on dry or wet. Once charged, you turn it on and hold it up to the areas of your feet that need exfoliating. The Amope does all the work. I was shocked at how smooth the electric exfoliator was able to  get my fee. This would make a great Mother's Day (for yourself or your own mother!).

Here are additional items you can score on sale!


So...stop everything, and check out Meijer Beauty Perks which is running from April 10 - May 7, 2016, and enter to win a $25 Meijer Gift Card!

L’Oreal Triple Resist Haircare



From years of highlighting and heat styling, my hair has had it's fair share of damage. I always like to take extra special care of it between styles and highlighting, so that it stays healthy for a long time to come. Here are some healthy hair rules I try to follow....
  • I try not to wash my hair everyday. I know, I know, it sounds difficult and no one likes oily hair, but when I skip a day of washing, I'm allowing my natural hair oils to build up and nourish my scalp. On days I don't wash I use a dry shampoo to soak up oil and to restyle.
  • I only use fabric covered elastic hair ties for my pony tail. Rubber hair ties are more likely to pull and/or break your hair when you take them out.
  • I get frequent haircuts and/or trims. Get rid of those dead ends!
  • I use hair care lines that help strengthen hair, like L'Oreal Triple Resist. Make your hair products work for you!
The L'Oreal Triple Resist products work together to help reinforce your hair from root to core to tip. This line contains concentrated Arginine-K Complex, which is like an amino acid, and reinforces hair fibers to promote healthy hair growth. 

I've been using the L'Oreal Triple Resist Shampoo, Conditioner and Ultimate Strength Solution for a little over a week and I can tell a visible difference in my hair. It's much softer and the ends don't get frizzy after styling. 

I use the shampoo and conditioner in the shower, and I use the Ultimate Strength Solution on my wet hair, before styling. I apply this very generously, making sure I spray all layers of my hair. I gather the sides of my hair in my hand, and spray the ends up close (which I think helps smooth my ends out while blow drying). I also lift my top layers up so I can spray close to my roots. I then take a comb through my hair to help distribute the product. As an added bonus, the products smell great and the scent lasts throughout the day.

You can find L'Oreal Triple Resist at your local drugstore or buy online at www.drugstore.com.

Changing My Look with the Weather...

The weather is changing, so why shouldn't your look? I just got my hair chopped and went darker with some low lights. That's not the only change. I'm wearing darker lipglosses and heavier eye liners. Why? Why not? It's the time of year to switch out your flip flops for Uggs and freshen up your look with trying out new daring things!

I feel like I'm able to wear all sorts of different colors with my new darker, shorter do. I did my eyes in heavy black eye liner today using Loreal's HIP Color Chrome Eyeliner in Black Shock. This eyeliner is super creamy and goes on so well. You sharpen it like a pencil, but it's lot softer. It's described as a liquid pencil.

I swept Senna Cosmetics Pandora shadow over my eyes, and topped it off with Loreal's Telescopic Explosion Mascara. Have you caught wind of this stuff yet? The wand is not your typical mascara wand, it's a ball! It takes a few tries to get use to it, but after that you'll be a pro at coating your lashes lash by lash for a full, long look. It gives me a lot of length, so much that my mom commented the other day 'what kind of mascara are you using?'

I'm also rocking Revolution Organics Freedom Glow beauty balm on the apples of my cheeks and lips. This stuff rocks. It totally brightens up my look and skin. I carry it with me to work so I can apply it at the end of the day, when my skin is looking a little tired or dull, and my blush/bronzer from earlier is wearing off. I was a little hesitant to apply it at first, kind of awkward in it's huge tube, but once it's dabbed on your cheeks it blends really well, almost fool proof. I toss this in my purse as a two for one freshen up for cheeks and lips.


I topped my lips with Tallulah Glossary Mineral Gloss in Berry Godmother. I received this gloss in this gorgeous berry color and in Skinny Dip, which is a shimmery nude. With my hair a little darker, I'm digging it in Berry. This gloss is moisturizing and super shimmery. The packaging is great too, with fun 'kiss' facts on it. One reads: "A high impact kiss quickens your pulse to 100 beats per minute, who needs the treadmill."

I'm feeling like a new person, bring on the cold weather!

Tell me ladies (and gents :), what are you doing to change and freshen your look this season? It doesn't have to be drastic, even if it's trying a new lipstick, let's say, bright red, it can make you feel totally refreshed and daring. Leave me a comment and please, do share!
