Rodan + Fields Dermatology

Thank you all for being so patient while I started my side gig: I have become a Rep for Rodan + Fields Dermatology alongside my dear friend, M.C. Phillips! I am so exited to help people love the skin that they are in and we are having a blast. Please comment with your email if you want details or more information. I would LOVE to help and getting started only takes 10 minutes!

R+F was developed by the Dermatologists who created Proavtiv. They launched the  anti-aging line in department stores like Nordstrom, Bendels, Macys, etc. and stayed there until late 2007. The lines were top sellers. At that point in time they pulled out of stores because customers were not buying because of the advice of the sales person behind the counter. They were buying due to word of mouth. That is how this business has grown and continues to expand. Please let me know if you hear someone talking about sun spots, wrinkles, acne, or rosacea and please send them my way. I am wild about my results and would love to share!

The results truly speak for themselves:

Unblemish and Reverse Regimens

Before and after...
Reverse and Redefine Regimens
MACRO Exfoliator

Redefine Regimen

The tools are fantastic too and give the most dramatic results in conjunction with our regimens.
Redefine + AMP MD roller

Make-up, skin care and fashion are so intimately connected. I plan to keep blogging and styling while I rep Rodan + Fields as the businesses are complementary. As the Closet Coach, I have to mention that R+F products are a great buy with a 60 day bottom of the bottle guarantee(graphic below). I am loving my results and you can too.

Gladiators for a Steal

Sunshine at last!

Target does it again. Snap up these Sam & Libby nude gladiator sandals for a song while they last. Today I am pairing them with my favorite green AG Jeans to avoid getting pinched. 

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Strong Women

Celebrating International Women's Day today. Did you know in some countries it is a national holiday? Since 1911 this day has marked the economic, political, and social achievements of women. 

I am so grateful for all the strong women in my life!

Outfit of the Day #ootd

Currently I am obsessed with this Anthro pencil skirt.
I love the tribal print and deep yellow. It is bright paired
with all my dark winter basics and will be perfect with a t-shirt
and sandals this summer. At this point in winter I advise 
adding pieces to your wardrobe that will transition well
        to the next season for maximum wear-ability.
Here I am (so serious!) with the gorgeous magnolia as back-drop. 
The skirt predominantly features black within the print as well as really
 deep pops of indigo.  I love the unexpected pairing of the black pieces
                                              with a navy necklace.

McCalls Patterns

Get a laugh out of vintage patterns: 
McCall's Pattern Behavior meme. And we all need a little funny on snow day #?!? I have lost count.

*disclaimer: I do NOT agree with a few of these...but worth a read. Most are hilarious.*

You're welcome.

I only wish my poor pansies were in this kind of shape right now. But I know warmer weather will restore their glory! Now that we have turned the calendar page, Spring is surely on it's way (by May?!?). Our snow is beginning to melt in patches. It is wonderful to see the green grass poking out!
