When I was a pre-teen/teenager my face used to break out.  I always remember saying to myself “I can’t wait until I get older so my face stops breaking out!”

Then, I got older.

And my face still breaks out!  Luckily, it doesn’t do it as often or as severe, but still!  I thought pimples were a faze.  Something I would outgrow.  I have learned a thing or two about skincare since I was 12 though (like toothpaste will not make your zit go away magically by the next morning!)  One thing that I have learned is that in order to treat your skin, you have to understand your skin.  For me, that means a few things.

clean and clear2

One, I need to exfoliate!  I get those nasty blackheads.  I know, gross right?  I can feel those little bumps all across my nose and – eh, yuck! I use the Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Scrub (available at Walmart).  It has multi-action beads and wow does it work!  You can feel it exfoliate and clean, and the best part is that it can help you see fewer blackheads in just two days!

Clean-And-Clear-Morning-Burst-Facial-Cleanser

For my everyday cleaner, I use the Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser (available at Walmart).  Y’all.  I love this.  You feel …. clean afterwards.  It has these little bursting beads inside the cleanser and they are seriously amazing.  My skin feels so good after I am done washing with this!

When I was younger I used to think that only dry skin needed moisturizer.  Oh no!  I moisturize everyday with the Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer (available at Walmart).  And trust me, my skin thanks me!  This moisturizer not only moisturizes your skin, but also will fight off breakouts!  Awesome huh?

And on the rare occasion that a pimple slips through, I use the Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment (available at Walmart).  This can reduce the appearance of pimples in only 4 hours!  It’s a great thing to have in your skincare toolkit just in case!

Save $1.00

Clean & Clear makes tons of really great products!  You can find them easily available at your local Walmart.  Plus, you can print off a high value coupon (while supplies last!) from Walmart!  Simply take a 4 question skin care quiz and print off your coupon!  While you are there you can find skincare tips and watch some great inspirational videos!

event_photo-541218d4995f4

Did you know that while your child is out collecting candy this year that they can be helping to save the lives of children around the world?  Trick or Treat for UNICEF started in 1950 as a way for kids to help kids.  Since then, children have taken UNICEF collection boxes (you can get one for free here) with them trick or treating collecting change for this amazing cause!  Since 1950 children have raised over $170 million dollars while trick or treating!

UNICEF online

This year UNICEF has made fundraising even easier!  In addition to taking the iconic boxes with you while trick or treating you also have the option of creating an online fundraising page.  In just a few seconds, you can set up a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF fundraising page to share with friends and family. The money you raise will help save and protect children by providing clean water, nutritious food, lifesaving vaccines and more. Because some kids need more than candy.

I go for the good stuff!  But honestly, it’s probably more for selfish reasons than anything.  I buy lots of candy “just in case” which really means so when we don’t use it all I can claim it.  I’m a big fan of Kit Kats, Twix and Milky Way.  YUM!! :)

Jenni-Eaves1-213x300

We usually go trick or treating and don’t pass out candy but the times we do, I usually pass out the good stuff. The Reese’s, and other yummy candy bars because those are my faves. Keeping my hands out of the candy bowl is a challenge.

LindsayHeadShot3Border-300x300

We give out candy, and sadly it’s usually candy that I like so I munch on it before Halloween…which usually means I need to go buy another bag before the trick-or-treaters get here.  You’d think I’d learn my lesson, but apparently not. Those Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups just cannot be denied!

When I was a kid it was a big deal to get mini chocolate bars for trick or treat so that’s what I give out. I may or may not have to sample a few of them.

Fall Bucket List + Febreze Home Harvest Collection

Fall in Love with Febreze Home Harvest

It’s fall!!

Are you as excited about this as I am?  I love everything about this season.  I love the leaves.  I love the pumpkins.  I love the weather.  I love the smells.  I love.  Everything.  I’ve been looking forward to this fall since, well, last fall.

Speaking of smells, do you see the adorable box that was delivered to me the other day?  Febreze sure knows how to spoil a girl!

The barn was packed with lots of goodies.  A Febreze freshener with two of the new fall scents.  I love that these each have 2 scents so you get a nice combination.   I received the vanilla sugar mix and sandalwood chai.  And yes, they are delicious smelling!

They also sent one of my favorite Febreze products ever.  The Febreze car vent clip.  These are so easy to use.  You just clip them into your car’s vent and you are good to go!  When the air (or in the fall, the heat!) blows it blows the scent out.  Your whole car smells amazing!  The toasted almond scent that they sent me to try was really awesome.  My mom rode in my car last weekend and had to stop at Walmart to buy her own!

They also sent a really adorable recipe box filled with fall recipes, activities and inspirations!  I loved it so much that it inspired me to create my own fall bucket list to share with you!

fall bucket list

 

What are you looking forward to the most this fall?  I am so excited to begin checking off things on our bucket list!

The Febreze Home Harvest collection is available at Walmart!  It will have your home smelling as festive as you feel this fall!

This post is written by me on the behalf of Febreze.  I was compensated with products and/or payment for my honest opinions about their products.  All thoughts are my own and 100% my real opinions!

Get Organized Week with Moms Check In

Moms Check In 1 Topic 5 moms  (1)

Did you know that this week is Get Organized Week. Seriously! It’s on the calendar! No lie! That got all of us thinking and talking about our own homes. I don’t know about you, but my house can always use more organizing! So we want to talk this week about what area of your home needs the most organization help?

Amanda-626x1024

Our mail area and counter is the worst! Between mail and school papers it gets cluttered quickly and really easily. It’s such an eye sore too. I’ve been working on tackling it, but I’m learning quickly that it’s going to take everyone tackling it together! :)

Jenni-Eaves1-213x300

I need the most help in organizing the clutter. It tends to take over the house sometimes. Oh, and I think my kitchen cabinets need an organized makeover. I’m working on that now but my ears are open and ready for any tips from the organized mommas!!

LindsayHeadShot3Border-300x300

Oh please, which part *doesn’t* need help? Paper clutter is my biggest problem by far so I’m going to say my kitchen. That’s where all the mail comes in, all the school papers, and all my lists to myself. It piles up until I make the time to sort it. I’m a terrible filer and badly need an organization system for my paper problems. Send help!

Well…there’s this storage room in the basement that used to be empty. Somehow it has become a jumble of don’t-want-to-get-rid-of-this important fill-in-the-blank. It’s become a great rainy day project…except it might take a downpour like in the days of Noah before I’d get it finished.
