Hi Bubbling Readers,
It’s been a couple of weeks of so many things going on that I need to have some spa treatment. It’s good; but full. When I am feeling like I need a burst of energy or a stress release, I find it therapeutic to use my Clarisonic Mia.
What is the Clarisonic Mia?
The Clarisonic Mia is the little sister to the full-size cleansing machine. The device is specifically designed for the face; while the full-size Clarisonic can be used on the face and body.
I wear a variety of make up. When I would only use a face cloth, my skin never felt like it was clean. I started doing my research and found the Clarisonic on QVC.com.
I use my Mia at least three times a week. I really like that I can take my Mia into shower. It can get totally wet without a problem. The Clarisonic Mia’s size compact enough that makes it ideal to take with you when traveling or vacationing. The Mia is cordless and can maintain a charge for about two weeks before needing to recharged.
JT using the Clarisonic Mia
I try to avoid break outs on my face; so I like get a deep-down clean that the Clarisonic Mia can provide.
I cleanse my face with my Josie Maran double-sided cleansing cloth, with a couple pumps of the Bare Escentuals cleanser. Then I use my Mia with Noxzema or Burt Bees cleanser and gently rub in circular motions over my face. The Mia has a 60-second timer and will automatically cuts off. The brushes eventually will need to be replaced and I have no problem with that. The Clarisonic Mia deeply cleanses my skin and helps me win over acne-prone skin.
For more information on the Mia, click on the QVC website. There is a detailed video with informative tips and why everyone should have a Clarisonic.
“How do I use it: First, remove eye makeup. Wet skin and brush head, and apply cleanser to the skin or directly to the brush head. Push the on/off button, select speed, and follow the one-minute T-timer prompts while moving brush in small, circular motions: 20 seconds on forehead, 20 seconds on nose/chin, and 10 seconds on each cheek. Hold the brush head flush to your skin. Pressing too hard will impede the motion of the brush and reduce effectiveness. Mia 2 will automatically shut off after one minute.”
The brush heads do not feel rough but feel soft and comfortable.
Try the Mia if you want your skin to feel smooth and you want to get a deep-down clean. When your face does not feel clean after you wash it, check out the the Mia.
I purchased my Clarisonic Mia with my own money and I was not compensated in any way from the Clarisonic company or from QVC for this review. All opinions are strictly my own.
Hi Bubbling Readers,
Can you stand up to what you believe in? If someone says to you God is Dead and completely nonexistent what would you say to them? Tough questions, yes.
I am excited about a new film that will be coming out March 21st in theaters called “God’s Not Dead.” Those questions above made me think about my own faith and if I were to stand up to the microphone. What would I say?
I am not perfect and I am a work in process.
In order to stand up for what I believe, I know I have to read and study God’s word. But there’s an important key I have to talk to him and develop daily my relationship with him.
Has your faith ever been tested? When you want to say something about why you believe in God and nothing came out of your mouth because you didn’t know what to say.
This movie focuses on faith being tested and why we have to stand up for what we believe in.
Take a look at the trailer here:
You will see some familiar faces in this film. Kevin Sorbo (Hercules), Dean Cain (Superman) and David A. R. White (Brother White).
Also special appearances from the Newsboys, Willie and Korie Robertson.
Tell your friends and everyone you know to come out and show this film support.
This film is rated PG for brief violence and an accident scene.
Hello Elegant Readers!
Thank you for stopping by my lovely boutique blog.
Sit back, relax and enjoy.
All I hear around me is talk about the weather.
It’s snowing? It’s raining? It’s a wintry mix? Is it spring yet?
I will get to the outfit post;
but first I wanted to offer a little food for thought.
Thank you God for protecting me, leading me and guiding me. Each day I want to be better, do better. I heard a saying that many of you have heard that quitters never win and winners never quit. I don’t ever want to give up on my dreams, goals and aspirations in life. This last two weeks have been like a whirlwind; but praise God He is still on the throne. My goal is to seek Him more and more each day. I looked at this scripture from my Joyce Meyer calendar
A man’s [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words
he must be satisfied [whether good or evil].
So I declare that I will do my best to purpose to speak positive words from my mouth. Is it easy?
No way. Do I have what I say? Yes. Speak Life!
My outfit that I wore to work or church is so fun and carefree. It brightens the darkest of days. My boots were a recent purchase from HSN that I got at a real good deal. The Joan Boyce “Emily” Sequined Boot with Faux Fur Lining retailed for $69.90 but I bought them for a whopping price of $24.95 (with free shipping). I am not one to usually be shy when it comes to what I wear; but these boots were shining bright like I need to wear shades. Well you know me, so I wore them to church. Way cool! Not only are they an eye catcher, but the boots are also very warm and cozy. I received so many compliments on these boots that it was like they had there on fan following.
Another bonus is the shoes have a side zip and a rubber sole with great traction.
This outfit was a bit of this and that, pulled together. I purchased the ribbed turtleneck from Macy’s last year. The skirt was gifted to me from Lettuce Stitch Skirts, I am linking its Facebook page because its site is not active. My Dooney and Bourke Vacheeta leather handbag has become one of my favorites. My two-year-old burgundy tights from Marshalls coordinated and finished the look. It all came together and Vinny, my sweet doggie, is my trusty photo buddy.
My necklace is from the Missouri History Museum gift shop. I liked the different textures used in the necklace. Textures of metal, crystals, crochet yarn, glass beads, pearls and a timepiece.
I wear bracelets every day, it finishes my look. I am giving another cudo to the Missouri History Museum gift shop.
I bought this silver cameo bracelet about three years ago and I got such a good deal on it.
My watch is a must every day. I collect watches and this one is a ceramic Isaac Mizrahi watch. It is so versatile and has become a classic on my accessory list. The sterling silver cuff is is by Judith Ripka. The gold Jacqueline Kennedy bracelet was an wedding anniversary gift from my hubby. I love this bracelet so much that I will be doing a future post about it.
I mentioned that we should speak life. This latest video from Tobymac really speaks loud about how we should treat each other.
