Maricela Monday’s: My Weekend

Happy Monday wonderful people!  If you are new here, Welcome!  If you’ve been keeping up with my Blog Welcome back!  Today I am going to talk about my weekend and mention a couple of favorites that I re-discovered this weekend.

Sometimes self-care is exercise and eating right.  Sometimes it’s as simple as taking a nap.  Whatever it might be that allows you to relax and recharge, do it.  We moms get so caught up in always taking care of others that we forget about ourselves.  Just remember that you only live once and you deserve to focus on yourself sometimes, be a little selfish but not too selfish. 🙂

This weekend I fully relaxed.  Saturday morning I woke up early and went to the gym.  Working out makes me feel so good!  Saturday night we went on a date along with Naila. 🙂  Had some delicious steak and yesterday I got a massage for the first time ever.  Let’s just say it is life changing for sure.  I feel like a complete new woman!  So relaxed and enjoyed just being about myself.  My weekend was just amazing and  will definitely be getting full body massages regularly.

The 2 items that I re-discovered this weekend are:

  1. Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Perfume– this is considered to be a fruity floral scent.  It is light and airy and it smells so good.  🙂  I’ve owned this perfume for a while and I have not gotten tired of it.  🙂
  2. Glamglow Thirstymud Treatment Mask– GlamGlow is an amazing brand overall.  This mask specifically is a non-drying hydration mask that delivers instant and extreme moisture to your skin that leaves it glowing and looking healthier than ever.  Anything GlamGlow I love! 🙂

This concludes my blog post for today!  If you have any questions at all, ask away.

Thank you so much for supporting my blog.  Don’t forget to make a commitment to yourself to grow daily! 🙂

My Favorite Skin Care Products

I hope everyone is having an amazing Saturday!  Today I wanted to share what I use as far as skin care.  I always like to wash my face twice daily, morning and night.

I had been wanting to try out the Clinique line for a while.  In January for my birthday I finally decided to try it out and I have to say that I love it.

My favorite is the Dramatically different moisturizing lotion.  My skin tends to change a lot throughout the year.  There were times when I had dry patches on my face and some oily spots as well.  This lotion has made my skin feel and look good for the past few months.

I purchased this set, it has the travel set and the bigger size products for daily use.  This is a 3 step process it has the cleanser, the toning lotion and lastly the moisturizing lotion.

  1. Rinse your face thoroughly with the facial cleanser, you can use a brush or your hands.  Below I will talk more about the brush that I use.
  2. After cleansing dry your face and apply the toning lotion, I apply it with these cotton rounds.
  3. Lastly apply the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion.

After step 3 you are done and ready to start the day or end the your day.  They are all phenomenal products please try them out, you will love them.

To cleanse or exfoliate my face I always use some kind of facial brush.  The one that I use is the Foreo Luna 2 , which is a facial cleansing brush and an anti-aging facial massager.   You don’t have to use this specific one there are always other options.

Another very important part of skin care is using SPF lotion on your face daily.  I personally use one that has an SPF of 40 and it is for men and women.  It is the Clinique Super City Block Ultra Protection SPF 40.  I apply this every time before I go out anywhere.  Aside from protecting my face it is also oil-free, which means no extra shiny face.
