Hair, Skin, & Nails on POINT with Nature Made + Enter to WIN!

This post was sponsored by Nature Made as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Good morning!!!  Well, it’s a new day and the sun is shining…and by that I mean it was literally 90 degrees yesterday.  I cannot believe it’s already getting so hot outside!  We let the boys get in the pool this weekend and summer is right around the corner.  You know what I think about when I hear “summer”???  SKIN!!!  Lots of it…as in I have to show my skin more.  Sigh….

As I’ve gotten older and I’m about to venture into the “late thirties” *shutter* taking care of my skin has been more of a priority.  I’ve been taking vitamins to help my hair, skin, and nails for years and I can definitely tell they make a difference.  I want to be around for a long time and watch Connor grown up, so taking those little extra steps now to ensure better health make me feel a bit better.

Nature Made® Hair, Skin, and Nails Vitamins are an easy way to ensure I’m taking care of myself.  I wish I could say I naturally had beautiful hair, skin, and nails…but I don’t.  I know a healthy amount of biotin helps your hair, skin, and nails grow strong.   My hairdresser recommendeds I take something with biotin to help and it truly has.  I also try to drink a lot of water during the day and stay away from carbonated drinks.

I’ve trusted Nature Made® Vitamins since I was a teenager and I’ve never been disappointed.  I picked mine up at my local Walmart.  Nature Made® Vitamins actively pursue health and wellness through product innovations, quality ingredients and being #1 Pharmacist Recommended so they can help you reach your health goals, little by little, every day. 

I know every little thing I do today can help me have a better tomorrow.  Let’s face it I like to have fun and I want to be able to stay active and HAVE FUN for years to come.

Christmas is over, yet the chill in the air lingers on.  We actually had snow a few weeks ago here in Texas!  I promise I will recap our Christmas on the blog soon…it is coming!  I’ve just been busy with, well, life.  We’ve had sick days and sinus days and everything that comes with the season.  I have always had really dry lips, so I always try to use extra moisturizer in the winter.

My friends at ChapStick® are always there to help me during the winter season.  The new ChapStick® Total Hydration line is amazing y’all!  I had the opportunity to try out some of the different varieties and colors and I love it.  At this rate I’ll have kissable lips by Valentine’s day 🙂

The new ChapStick® Total Hydration products are available at Target.  I’m at Target pretty much every week, so I’m glad to know one of my favorite products is carried there.  Can we say “bullseye“???

My favorite ChapStick® is the Merlot Moisture+Tint.  It gave me the perfect amount of moisturizer and color all in one.

ChapStick® Total Hydration Moisture + Tint is the first-ever tinted lip balm from ChapStick®, the experts in lip care. This tinted moisturizer features a formula with 100% naturally sourced ingredients that deliver long-lasting moisture, plus a hint of color.

ChapStick® Total Hydration 100% Natural is an age defying formula with 100% naturally sourced ingredients like Argan Oil, Omegas 6 & 9 and Avocado Butters. Total Hydration 100% Natural is available in three flavors – Fresh Citrus, Soothing Vanilla and new Honey Blossom.

ChapStick® Total Hydration 3 in 1 is a Korean-inspired, 3-in-1 formula that provides triple action lip care in one lip balm. It moisturizes, renews and transforms lips to provide smoother, healthier looking lips. Total Hydration 3in1 is available in five flavors – Coconut Hydration, Soothing Oasis, Sweet Peach, Wild Acai Berry and new Cooling Peppermint.

ChapStick® Total Hydration with CoQ10 is an advanced moisture formula designed to instantly smooth and transform lips. It features a lightweight formula that provides long-lasting moisture, helping lips stay hydrated for a full eight hours, and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Total Hydration with CoQ10 is available in a Vanilla Cream flavor.

ChapStick® Total Hydration Conditioning Lip Scrub is the latest innovation.  I absolutely love this lip scrub, it gently exfoliates and conditions leaving lips soft and smooth.

I’m so excited about these new ChapStick® products and would love one of you to win a ChapStick® Total Hydration Gift Set and a $25 Target gift card!

New Year, New You: My Microblading Experience with Dallas Brow Couture

Meet Megan…aka the “Eyebrow Queen”.  Not only is she absolutely gorgeous, but she has a heart for others.  She’s also really good at her job, she does microblading at Dallas Brow Couture.

I’ll be honest…when I first thought about microblading I was scared.  My first thoughts were:

  1.  Is this a tattoo?  NO.  It’s not a tattoo.  It’s vegetable dye pigment that is implanted under your skin with a tiny tool to draw hair-like strokes in with your natural brows.
  2.  Is in permanent?  NO.  It’s semi-permanent and can last from 1-3 years depending on your skin.  You can get touch ups as often as you’d like.
  3. Does it hurt?  NO.  Well, not really.  Your brow area will be numbed with a cream.  I was more sensitive my second visit than my first.  Probably because my skin had just been through the process.  It wasn’t anything that I couldn’t handle.
  4. Will they look fake?  Absolutely NOT.  They will look AMAZING!
  5. How much of a difference can eyebrows really make?  I thought I had good eyebrows before, but let me tell you gals…now I can’t stop staring at other people’s brows!  I feel like even if I have no makeup on I look put together.  Megan changed the shape a bit and it opened up my face more.  She did things I would never have thought to do.  She will make sure everything is symmetrical and you will leave looking Kardashian worthy.  Trust.  It makes SUCH a difference & I would recommend doing this to any of my friends.  

This is Megan’s makeover haven:

Here is my before and after and the last two photos are at my one month check up.  You can see from the first and last picture what a difference it makes.  I used to fill in my brows and now I don’t have to do that anymore 🙂 HOLLA!

Megan is such a wonderful person and I not only think of her as the “Eyebrow Queen”, but a forever friend.  She has a great program where she also gives this gift to others.  Check it out here.  You can also follow her amazing before and after photos on Instagram and Facebook.  If you have any questions please feel free to comment!

I made a video of the process below & I hope you enjoy! xo – Becky
