Botanics x Ulta Beauty

Happy Thursday, y’all!

How is it already March 7th? I can’t believe it. Yikes. Time honestly needs to slow down for me. Anyone else?

I recently partnered with Botanics and Ulta, to try some Botanics products. They sent me a face cleanser, face wipes, radiance serum, hydrating night cream, and micellar water. I am a HUGE fan of micellar water and it has seriously changed my skincare game. I have been using another brand for years, but have also enjoyed the Botanics this past week, as well. It’s not drying and does a great job removing makeup, even mascara. The Botanics bottle is under $7.

This company began in the UK and make only plant-based products. Those of you who are wanting to using clean products, you might want to stop by Ulta, pick some up, and give these a try! If you do, I’d love to hear how they are working for you!

Giving you the 411 on Fillers

Happy Saturday, peeps!

It’s time we talk about fillers. Before we do that though, I need to preface this post by saying that this is a personal decision for everyone. No one needs to do anything to their body to be whole and complete.

This makes me happy from the inside, so I’m going to let you in on what I’ve been doing to my face. But that means we’ve got to go back five years.

One of the questions y’all asked was how did you first decide to get fillers? I have had deep wrinkles in my forehead FOREVER. So when I was 25, I went to our family dermatologist and asked for some Botox. I started with 24 units and within a matter of days, my forehead was so smooth. My confidence went up and I felt great! I continued to get botox four times a year. Now that I’m older, I get 28 units and I only have to do it 2-3 times a year. I truly believe this is preventative care for my skin.

I started getting my lips filled a few years ago and I’ve done a couple different products. The first product I tried was Restylane Silk. This was very painful and they BLEW up! They also didn’t last very long. Last February, I went for Juvaderm the second time and LOVED how they filled out. They’ve lasted for a year and thanks to New Look Houston, I got some fresh lippies during a demonstration. IMG_7364

Answering more of your questions below:

How long do they last? Maintenance? This really depends. Your body metabolizes these fillers differently. For me, Botox lasts around 4 months and the Juvaderm lasts around a year. Again, this is different for everyone.

Do you see a plastic surgeon or a different kind of doctor? Great question! I’ve gone to a dermatologist for years and recently have been seeing a nurse anesthetist who consults with a plastic surgeon. Do your research on where you go! These people should be licensed professionals. I don’t bring any inspiration photos because I trust what the injector thinks would look best

Did they hurt? Botox does not hurt. They feel like tiny little pinches in your skin. Lips are a little different. They numb your lips for about 30-45 minutes. Your lips are more sensitive and I will say there is some pain involved. Recovery for Botox is nothing, but again, lippies are different. There’s swelling and bruising that can last from a few days to a week. The more you do this though, the easier the recovery becomes.

Cost? Cost varies on the product you use. Juvaderm typically runs between $500-$600, and Botox typically runs between $11-$13 per unit.


This is Nurse Sal who did my lips this last time. Isn’t his suit so chic?!

Smile Fearlessly

Happy Friday, friends!

I’ve used different electric toothbrushes for years, but for the last few weeks, I’ve been using the new cariPro Ultrasonic Electric toothbrush. The brush itself has 5 different settings, with different pressures. Brushes I’ve used before have one setting – hard. These cariPro Ultrasonic settings feel like I’m giving my pearly whites a good pressure washing; I am loving the ‘clean’ and ‘whiten’ settings, and there’s even a ‘sensitive’ dial! I am so happy with this new toothbrush (and the bright smile I’ve been showing off) and I am even MORE happy to…
