Winter Skin Relief Day with CeraVe!

This post has been sponsored by CeraVe®. All thoughts and reviews are my own.

I live in Texas, and for the majority of the year we have pretty mild temps.  Lately though we’ve had a cold front come through and my skin is pretty much in shock!  Winter Skin Relief Day was January 8th and I was invited to try out CeraVe® skincare and tell all of you lovelies about it!

With the dropping temperatures outside and rising thermostats inside the amount of moisture in the air is zapped, and our skin is first to notice. As winter kicks into high gear, Winter Skin Relief Day reminds us of all the ways we can protect our skin under the harshest elements.

I’ve been using the CeraVe® Healing Ointment (National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance™) and so far I’m loving it.  I specifically use it the heels of my feet which for some reason get really dry.  It provides intense, long-lasting moisturization.  Combined with a non-greasy gentle formula, CeraVe® Healing Ointment soothes, temporarily protects and helps to relieve dry, chapped and chafed skin caused by the colder air. SERIOUSLY IT’S NOT GREASY!  

 

Cleanse, hydrate and restore and protect your skin with CeraVe® Hydrating Facial Cleanser, which contains hyaluronic acid to help retain skin’s natural moisture while removing dirt, oil and makeup.

Start your day with CeraVe® Skin Renewing Day Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen, designed to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.  I’m heading towards the big 4-0 so anything with anti-wrinkle and SPF is my best friend!

Get your beauty sleep with CeraVe® Skin Renewing Night Cream, which also contains hyaluronic acid, ultimately helping reduce the look of tired skin and supporting skin elasticity.

So far I am really loving this skin care line.  Your skin is your largest organ, so don’t forget to take good care of it.  Developed with dermatologists, CeraVe is the first and only brand to offer a complete line of advanced skincare products that contain an exclusive combination of ceramides 1, 3 and 6-11. What are ceramides? The glue that holds skin cells together, ceramides keep moisture in and irritants out while restoring your natural skin.  CeraVe products use patented MVE technology that releases ingredients slowly over 24 hours, allowing them to absorb into the skin to hydrate and nourish, as well as restore and lock in moisture to protect your skin.  To learn more about CeraVe visit HERE.

Crazy Good Coffee for $1.00…SAY “WHAAAAAT????”

This post is sponsored by RaceTrac.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Everyone knows I’m the “Coffee Queen”.  That’s pretty much how this blog got her name…because without coffee I’m only part human….am I right?  Coffee is a daily staple in my life and I know it is in so many of you as well.

I have a mean coffee habit and I love to try ALL kinds of coffee.  If someone wants to offer me a cup of coffee my answer is “Where, when, and what kind?”

So when I found out that RaceTrac is offering any size coffee for only $1.00 for the entire month of January I just couldn’t help but spill the beans to EVERYONE!!!

Okay, so let me show you how fabulous RaceTrac’s coffee bar is, you have to see it to believe it.  You get ALL of this for only $1 BUCK!

The coffee bar is so need and tidy too!  No matter what kind of coffee you like, RaceTrac has it…in pretty much every flavor.

Instant Iced Coffee

Or a “Crazy Good” Latte!  The lattes come in 10 different flavors to choose from.  I love the hazelnut myself.

Small, Medium, or Large – ANY size and it’s only $1.00!  With those savings you can buy the whole office coffee and become everyone’s new bestie 😉

RaceTrac offers six blends of fresh brewed coffee plus plenty of add-ins to make a specialty brew.

All the fixins’ to add to your coffee are at RaceTrac too!  All different kinds of sweeteners, creamers, and add-ins.

RaceTrac even has a chilled fresh cream machine.  I love this, it’s great to have options.

My favorite flavor is hazelnut.  Honestly y’all for a $1.00 a day at RaceTrac I could try every kind of coffee for the month and mix and match flavors.  I could buy 30 cups of coffee for what I would spend on a few trips at those fancy cafes.  And guess what???  I didn’t miss a thing!  My hazelnut latte was indeed crazy good and I will definitely be going back to RaceTrac.  My hubby and I have decided this is the year we are going to take a really nice vacation, of course he knows my expensive coffee habit and we just had the discussion that I needed to cut back and save where I could.  WELL….there you go!!!  I’m on the right track with RaceTrac!

Why not add a little more hazelnut?  All the coffee fixins’ are free, so I can be my own barista and mix whatever my heart desires.

Like I was saying…do you want to be the office hero?  They have biscotti, fancy syrups, and drink trays for you too!

Everything is right at your fingertips.  So if you are a coffee lover like me…well…this is basically paradise.

Happy coffee girl right here 🙂  Don’t forget to stop into RaceTrac this month at get your $1.00 cup of coffee.  Just think of the savings (which is just a bonus really because the coffee is so good I would go ANYWAY!)

So, what are you waiting for?  Go getcha some good coffee and save some MONEY HONEY!!!  This is the year to set goals, have a little extra, & live your best life….and you don’t have to sacrifice good tasting coffee to do that.

From one Coffee Diva Mother Lover to another….xo- Becky with the good coffee 😉

Food for thought…

Celebrating the Holidays at Outback Steakhouse

This post is sponsored by Outback.  All opinions are my own.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and I’m excited to start 2018!  I’ll do a Christmas re-cap soon 🙂

Today let’s talk about FOOD!!!  During the holidays food is a subject I like to indulge in myself.  If you ask my husband where his favorite place to eat is he will say Outback Steakhouse every time.  We’ve been married over 16 years now and the one thing that hasn’t change is his love for Outback, specifically the steaks and ranch dressing.

I was super excited to learn that a shiny brand new Outback Steakhouse was opening in Euless, TX so close to us!  We visited for the first time with our Grana and Pop and it was sooooooo good y’all!

The lobby is modern and stylish (I love the hanging light fixtures).  It also offers mates who are waiting a refreshing beverage.

The new Outback Steakhouse® is located at 2601 State Highway 121.

It is part of the huge new development going in near Glade Parks, so you have great shopping and dining all in one place!

We sure did enjoy our time with Grana and Pop!

We got a gift card to an escape room.  I’ve always wanted to do one of those and I’m excited to see if we can ESCAPE!

The Outback has a ton of new menu items right now, as well as some seasonal favorites.  That BIG Chocolate Cake…oh my!

Great cozy atmosphere

I tried the Gingerbread Martini and it was SOOOO good!  I’ll definitely be coming back for that one.

Okay, so I love the Outback Onion Blossom….and now they have the Onion Petals.  They are just as good if you have that craving, but don’t want the entire onion.  We love to dip ours in ranch.  The Outback’s ranch dressing is AMAZING y’all!

Nothing fills you up better than a steak and baked potato.

I took pictures of all of our meals and the veggies on my Mother-in-Law’s plate were delicious.

I ordered a side of the skillet mac n’ cheese.  Anything with cheese and spiral noodles….mmmmkay!!!!

My delicious chicken.  Outback seriously has the BEST chicken ever!

This was really cool.  If you have a big party of people and need extra seating these tables can join together to accommodate a ton of people.  You can basically create your own table size because the entire thing is on rails.  That is GENIUS!  

There is plenty of seating without feeling too crowded.  I loved the low lighting and the rustic atmosphere.  I’m so happy this is now in our home town and we can’t wait to go back for more Outback!  I’ve loved seeing out Outback has evolved over the years, as well as keeping our favorites in mind.

Guests at the new Outback will be able to enjoy signature grilled steaks, chicken and seafood entrees, and the Bloomin’ Onion in a restaurant boasting the chain’s new “Modern Australia” design, with decor that mirrors the indigenous flora and fauna, adventure, geography and leisure of modern-day Australia. 

The bar area.  Great for happy hour or watching a big game.

Being an Army brat and then marrying into the Air Force I was so happy to see this on our table.  The Outback Steakhouse is partnering with Operation Homefront to help our military and veterans.  You can add $1 to your check after your meal or a $5 donation goes to help a military family by providing a meal this holiday season!
