Memorial Weekend......2015

 For the last few years Ive been going up north to the Dells with some friends/extended "family" for Memorial weekend to camp and celebrate. This year was great minus to rain on Sunday but thankfully it didn't rain too long.

If you don't know Wisconsin Dells is home to the largest water park in the U.S. if you haven't been you should get out here and take in all the sites. If you want the best experience come during the warmer months (June-Sept) theres tons to do. Going up north is something most families do here in Wisco all year around, we grow up doing this yearly. People come from all over to visit the water parks because they're so fun! I suggest you go to the Kalahari its the BEST hotel/water park we have IMO, also visit Noah's Ark!

I planned on vlogging but I got caught up in the weekend I kind of forgot then just decided not to later on but I managed to get some decent pictures, I guess lol

Bag; Target (it comes in brown)
Pants: Target (sale)
Shirt: Brewers 
We were loading up the truck getting ready to head out! You see my camera in my purse, so much for that. I pack light....this is camping after all.

Lunch break in Lake Delton (:
Subway isn't my first choice ever, its not fresh despite the claims I'm not sure who they're trying to fool?

Hello Holiday Shores!!! 
How beautiful is the Wisconsin River!!!?! Now to unpack and settle in, I totally forgot to get a shot of our campsite but we took up 6 sites, we looked like some shanty town lol
The campgrounds are really cool but we didn't go through it as planned so I didn't get pics this year.

This picture doesn't do the sunset justice, it was so gorgeous!

soooo beautiful.

We were going to rent a pontoon but things didn't go the way thought ):

We tried a facebook recipe, turned out really good actually! 

Marshmallow Fluff+strawberry roast on open flame, enjoy!

I love classic cars and this was a treat to see considering I missed Automotion the weekend before.

We go every year (:

I'm going to say this is the BEST pizza place in Wisconsin, try it!
(It was too good to snap a pic)

Trying to stay healthy after eating brats, ribs and burgers all weekend.

Its mandatory to have a swig with Nig.

we thought this was a bit sketchy

Best breakfast in the Dells

Happy Memorial Day
Getting ready to leave but first Ry-Ry and Natalie stopped to dig for "dino bones"

A snack for the ride home!

I had an amazing weekend I hope yours was just as great or better (:

My Daily Skin Care Products/ Routine

Hello loves!
I'm not super fancy when it comes to how I take care of my face in fact I'm pretty simple, less is more! In my opinion I feel as though once you start using anti-aging face products you have to continuously use them because you'll definitely notice once you stop so I try to avoid them but that's just me. I'm lazy when it comes to certain things so I prefer to spend less time doing them lol also I suck at keeping routines up I always forget that's why I keep things pretty simple when it comes to skin care and honestly it shouldn't be that complicated.

First and foremost DRINK WATER!
 I cant stress that enough, but you all knew that!
Then find products that work for your skin and keep it simple.
Here are some of my favorites (:

1) Simple Cleansing Micellar Water $6: Ive recently started using it and I'm in love! It takes my makeup with ease, there's no scent, my skin feels hydrated after, and its not drying at all!

How I Use It
- In to mornings to cleanse my face or if I am too lazy to wash my face before bed.

2) Coconut Oil $6 (at Walmart other places are a bit more): try to get unrefined its better for the skin but this works just fine, Ive noticed a change in my skin since using it as a oil wash once or twice a week depending on how my skin feels, I also use it with lotion all over my body.

How I Use It:
- As an oil cleanser (once a week)
- As a sealant after I put moisturizer on
- on my lips
- Mixed in with foundation, I know what you're thinking but it changed my life!
(Also on my hair)

3) CeraVe $15 (they have smaller sizes): Its very thick in consistency but light weight as well the downside it does not have SPF (they do have SPF in other moisturizers they sell) there's no scent, good for normal to dry skin. You can get CeraVe for pretty much any skin type which is why i love it.

How I Use It:
 I use this with the product below because of its thickness so I really don't need much maybe a dime size amount or less for my entire face.

4) Mario Badescu Facial Spray $7: This is comparable to MAC's Fix+ but better IMO because it contains rose water, aloe and herbs however if you don't like the smell of roses obviously you may not want to buy this. My skin ahas been a bit more even since I've started using this almost a year ago. You can find it at Ulta in this size or travel size you can only purchase the larger bottle on Mario Badescu's site for $14.

How I Use It:
- To prime my skin before I apply my moisturizer
- To refresh throughout the day

Makeup related
- blending out concealer
-applying highlighter
-on my brushes to make the shadows more pigmented
