So, on top of doing the 24 Day Challenge (and continuing to use various products ever since) I also started using the Reverse Regimen from Rodan + Fields in the past month.

Rodan + Fields are the two dermatologists who came up with Proactive many years ago. They decided to come up with an extended line for various skin types and needs.

Through an old high school friend of mine, I purchased the Redefine Regimen in hopes of getting rid of some dark spots on my cheeks. As I’ve said before, I’ve taken really good care of my skin ever since I was a kid and diagnosed with vitiligo. Regardless, I’ve been battling some dark spots on my cheeks for years!

I’ve only been using the regimen for a month and I’m already noticing amazing results! My skin tone is more even and my face is so soft. And those dark spots are so much lighter that I hardly consider them an issue anymore!

My plan is to use this particular regimen for a few more months and then start using the Redefine Regimen to keep wrinkles (of which I’m very lucky to have few of at this point) at bay. Never hurts to get a jump on the scenario.

5 things I’m loving right now

  1. lovehandThe very delicate way in which my parent’s dog takes treats from you. She is so, so gentle with her mouth. It’s adorable.
  2. The revamped AMC theater at Flatirons Crossing Mall here in CO. Huge, plush leather recliners and absolutely no way for someone’s head to block your view or their foot to kick your chair is awesome! Add in the fact that you can get alcohol in the lobby to bring in with you and it’s happiness all around.
  3. A shorter hairdo. I took about three inches off, which isn’t a ton. But it feels different and new, which I like.
  4. Reminders that the short-term, feel-good solution isn’t always the best route and that staying the course usually pans out better in the long run.
  5. How the lessons I’ve learned from chronic pain can be beneficial to others.

5 things I’m loving right now

  1. Like a bozo, I sent my little brother, sister-in-law, and nephew’s Christmas presents to their old address. That package is nowhere to be found. So Amazon resent everything 2-day air at no cost to me. How’s that for customer service?
  2. Hanging out with my parent’s pooch. She’s an odd dog for sure, but a total sweetie.
  3. Hot mandarin orange Spark. It’s so, so good on these cold winter mornings.
  4. Instant karma. I let a man go ahead of me the other day at the store and the checker noticed. He then gave me the most expensive item I had in my cart for free to thank me for my kindness.
  5. Parking in a garage. Getting in a car that’s 45 degrees is much nicer than a car that’s 4 degrees.

Around the Interwebs

Hello all!

After a whirl-wind July, August is starting off at a much slower pace. Hallelujah for that! So, if you’re like me (a tad bored), here are a few things you might find as amusing as I do:

Have a great weekend, folks!

5 things I’m loving right now

lovehandSorry this is a little late. Happens sometimes…

  1. Having my little brother and his family in town! The fact that my nephew could smile and giggle after a long day of traveling and at an hour WAY past his bedtime was like a little miracle.
  2. People who are thoughtful and generous of spirit.
  3. A July full of long weekends and short workweeks. It’s pretty nice!
  4. Getting to try some fun restaurants that have been on my list for a while. Linger and The Green Russell are awesome.
  5. Having good luck getting into places that are usually really difficult to get in to. It’s like the stars all aligned to help me show an out-of-town guest all the best things in the easiest way possible.
  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
