Has anyone tried micellar water? It’s the latest craze in skincare and being that my skin can be an oily, acne prone mess, I thought I’d give it the old college try.
I must say I’m glad I did. This stuff is fabulous. You can use it to remove make up, to freshen up, or for general cleansing. I use it as an astringent to remove any leftover traces of dirt, make up, oil, or soap scum.
There are different brands on the market, but I settled for Garnier because their list of ingredients was shorter than that of the other companies-even Simple, believe it or not. They also have a blue bottle that is solely for waterproof make up. It also comes in purse size bottles. Plus it was only $4.99 which was cheaper than the rest.
Garnier touts that the water “features micelle cleansing molecules that pull dirt and oil away from the face.” I have no idea what those molecules are but I’m sold! It doesn’t irritate or dry my skin out like alcohol and some other astringents I’ve tried before.
Please leave a comment if you’ve tried it and let me know what you think!
We went ice skating again-one of my favorite winter activities. I kept my look simple, a Christmas sweater that reads “Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal” which is a line from the classic Home Alone, destroyed jeans, and furry socks. I added a pearl necklace for a bit of elegance.
Of course, a fun time was had by all.
Today I took my boys ice skating. We had a blast although my little one wasn’t very happy in the beginning, lol.
I’ve had the sweater for awhile and thought it would be perfect for ice skating. It has an attached tutu and thumb holes for added hand warmth.
I didn’t want anything to bulky underneath so I chose a pair of pink leopard leggings. Pink scarf, socks, and boots finished it off.
I even ran into a student, lol, and skated a few times with her.
Today feels and looks like a traditional fall day-crisp air and leaves of many colors everywhere. The weather was perfect for an impromptu photoshoot compliments of my son, lol. My backyard was the ideal location. It is carpeted with freshly fallen leaves. We also have a rustic red barn which makes for a nice backdrop.

I’ve had this dress for a few years, but this is only my second time wearing it. I love the crispness of the colors together-so classic.
I especially love my earrings. The tassel accessories are the current rage.
Sometimes sexy is simple.
I love this color combination together. It’s so classic yet fun. I paired red jeggings with a white Henley and a camel vest that I borrowed from a skirt suit, lol. I added the leopard print stiletto peep toe booties to tie it all together.
