Makeover Monday featuring PMD's Microdermabrasion Gun

So I want to try and make Monday's all about makeup and skin for a while. We will see how it works out :).

So my super stressed out bride to be sister is going to take us on a skin journey with her. I tried this gun on myself and it does wonders but I don't have a lot of blemishes so when I did a before and after you really couldn't tell a difference in my skin picture wise. It feels healthier and smoother, but it didn't translate in pics. So I asked my sister if she wanted to try the gun for a while and let us experience her journey with her. She is getting married at the end of September and we want to see if we can clear up her skin a bit with this Personal Microdermabraion Gun. Phew! Say that five times fast. So these are her before pics. We will be posting on them periodically.

This gun you are advised to wash your face thoroughly. You can use their cleanser or your own.  Of course they reccomend theirs, but we are using our own. It is important that your skin is completely dry before using the gun. Otherwise the gun can skim over the surface without getting deep into the skin. Microdermabrasion is great for improving fine lines, wrinkles, any damage to the skin. I will warn you there is a little bit of discomfort, and you may get some skin irritation. Make sure to try it out on a small patch of skin first.

You can buy this gun online and I have seen it cheaper at Ulta. You get your own at home system for the cost of one professional microdermabrasion. So you can save so much money investing in this gun. There are videos to talk you through the process as well. It is super easy.

Thanks Lyssa for letting us take this journey with you!

Our World Boutique

Ahhh another maxi skirt. My current favorite clothing item. I know a lot of people are so over chevron. I however cannot get enough of it. I knew I wanted to pair this adorable skirt with a lot of color. And of course my new favorite color combo is mint and pink, or mint and coral. Sorry for the overload of this color but I sure love it. I then paired gold jewelry to give it a little pop. These earrings are so gorgeous. I love how they look with the hair pulled a little back. They really bring an outfit to another level. I used to be a fan of just silver jewelry but as I have gotten older gold is slowly taking over my jewelry collection. This is one of my favorite outfits in my pregnancy. I felt really good. This skirt, shirt, and earrings all came from Our World Boutique and I am becoming more and more obsessed with this store. So cute and so affordable.

Leggings

Tuesdays are not my favorite days :) They are Mondays ugly stepsister. Not only are they well only Tuesday, I am now on a weekly visit with my Dr. And for all you women who have been pregnant you know exactly what that means. But these were taken Tuesday after my appointment. 

So the weather here has changed. It is getting cooler and rainy. I love love love rainy overcast days. They are so relaxing to me. I love the sound of the rain. So I have my boots all pulled out. I have my leggings ready to go. I love leggings. Especially for pregnancy. It is like wearing comfy, cute sweat pants. I am trying to get ahead in my posts so that you have something to read and look at while I am in the hospital. I am so close :0.

Menswear

So Brandon is stepping in today. I need to be off my feet and the closer I get the harder it gets to get out and take pictures. This man is absolutely the most amazing guy. He takes such good care of our little family and I know he will be such an amazing father. I am so lucky to have him in my life. And I am so thankful he's not only my husband but my best friend. Makes marriage so fun and easy when you just get each other. Love you bud thank you for everything!

Palazzo Pants and Our Wold Boutique

So I wore this outfit to a shower my sister and I were hosting. It was so comfortable but stylish. I was able to cook, and get everything ready without any restrictions. The shower went well I am so excited for you Brooke! 
This necklace has become one of my new favorite pieces. I love long necklaces. Our World Boutique has such a cute array of jewelry pieces that are right up my ally. I love that they don't cost an arm and a leg. They have J crew esque pieces that you can get for so much cheaper. And you don't sacrifice quality. Check them out. I will link you below. You will see more pieces from them through out the week.
