Spring is here and I don’t know about you, but I am loving the warmer weather. We go on our first family vacation at the beginning of May and I am counting down the days! This mama NEEDS a vacay! It’s long overdue. While I’m counting down the days, I’m also focusing on taking better care of myself and my body, especially in the skincare and pampering departments. Today, I’m going to be sharing some products that are helping me prep for not only my upcoming vacation but also prepping for the summertime.
Prepping For Vacation With Spring Pick-Me-Ups
I am always on the hunt for quality skincare products, especially since I’m quickly approaching my 30s. 😅 I just started using the Vichy LiftActiv Supreme H.A. Wrinkle Corrector. It’s an anti-aging face + eye serum that’s formulated with 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, and Vichy Volcanic Water to plump skin for a noticeable filling effect.
It’s fragrance-free, paraben-free, non-comedogenic, and safe for all skin types. Yes, even sensitive skin! It has clinically proven results of a 47% decrease in wrinkles + 60% decrease in fine lines in just 6 weeks. I’ll update my experience on Instagram Stories in a few weeks.
Taking care of my nails is important to me on a multitude of levels. I just used the Kerasal Multi-Purpose Nail Repair the other night and I noticed a difference in hydration right when applying it, but full visible improvements can be seen after one week of application (up to 3-6 months for full effect). If you’re someone who gets gel manicures often or your nails have signs of aging, Psoriasis, or nail fungus, consider trying this out for yourself. Here are some coupons for you.
Kerasal also has a solution for dry, cracked feet with their Intensive Foot Repair. The Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair loosens hard, dry skin, and deeply moisturizes your feet. The first time I used it I was shocked at how quickly it worked for me. I noticed a visible difference immediately! It is smooth and doesn’t feel greasy. Pro tip: For the best results and some extra self-care, cover with cotton socks overnight. Here’s my before and after using the Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair!
You can easily shop at the Kerasal Amazon Store!
One of my all-time favorite self-care activities is painting my nails. I get my love for nail polish from my mom. Needless to say, I was eager to use the Halo Hand nail polish they sent over for me. Halo Hand nail polishes are always non-toxic and are free of the 10 most common chemicals found in nail polish. Here, I’m using their top seller Get Orchidized and I also used their Pearls of Wisdom shade over top of a couple of my nails. The application was smooth and is proving to be very chip-resistant, which is extremely important for me.
Halo Hand releases seasonal favorites to help you stay on-trend with your nail color. You can subscribe to their seasonal manicure kit and have it automatically delivered to your door every 3 months with a 15% discount already applied.

In 29 days from now, I’ll be walking on the beach… ahhh, I can’t wait! These Pool Float Sandals from REEF are super comfortable and you bet they’ll be packed for my trip. They have an oversized strap and a super padded footbed for ultimate comfort. I have the color Yellow Palm and they also come in Coral Palm. Both have a palm tree design on the footbed. Snag yours on reef.com!
The other night I used the Tree Hut Bare Moisturizing Shave Oil in the shower for the first time and oh my gosh, it is love. Tree Hut’s Shave oils are made of ingredients that are good for you like Shea Butter, Argan Oil, and Oat Extract. My legs were incredibly smooth and I was able to get the best close shave. If you’re prone to razor bumps, skin irritation, or ingrown hairs, you need to try one of their shave oils for yourself. I love the Coconut Lime Shave Oil and they also have a Moroccan Rose Shave Oil.
To use: Apply to wet skin. Shave. Rinse or wipe off! Bonus points: It doesn’t clog your razor!
I’m going through a season where I’m starting to find myself more and more. You’d think that since I’m a blogger that journaling would be easy for me to do but the truth is, it’s not. BUT! A Year of Weeks: 52 Awesome Weeks of Trying New Things by Erica Root and Running Press is helping me break into the journaling spirit. It’s interactive and has prompts for you to fill out all centered around trying new things each week. This is the kind of journaling I can get into! Mindfulness and personal growth mean a lot to me so I can’t wait to see how I grow from using A Year of Weeks.
A Year of Weeks offers endless opportunities to enrich your life through engaging activities and imagination-sparking illustrations – one week at a time!
If you’re in need of some spring pick-me-ups, grab these for yourself!
