Try It Tuesday: Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme @EsteeLauder


I have recently added to products to my nightly beauty regimen. I received the recommendation to use these products from my local Estee Lauder sales associate  (located at Belk in Greenwood SC). Props to them for knowing their products!

Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme

This is for all skin types
Apply AM and PM
Ideally to be used after your repair serum

Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

Apply nightly after you cleanse your face
Apply moisturizer afterwards

Since I started using these together, I thought I would give my thoughts on both in one post.

I should have taken before and after pictures so that you could have seen the difference. I did not expect by skin to look as improved as it did. It was a gradual improvement.

One day I was taking a selfie and thought that my skin looked radiant. I thought it was the lighting. Later, I took another selfie in different circumstances and I thought my skin still looked good. I tried to think about what I was doing differently and I realized…it’s these new creams and serums that I am using on my face!

I am not exactly sure what each product is doing to my face, but the effects are wonderful. My skin looks like it has a glow and look smoother.

I was using a different serum but it was too harsh for my skin. This has repaired some of that damage and evened out my skin tone.

TOW Final word: Buy or Pass
Buy. These are two great products and they are gentle on my sensitive skin.

Hytek Gar Essential Oil Case #TRYitTuesday

This week I am talking about essential oil cases. This is a necessary item if you use essential oils and want to transport them.

Hytek Gear Essential Oil Carrying Case Holds 30 Bottles (5ml-15ml), Black 

This is what they say

  • Professionally Sewn – High Quality Fabric and Zipper.
  • Soft padded cloth interior to protect bottles. Holds up to 30 Bottles – 5ml, 10ml, 15ml.
  • Compatible with all brands of Essential Oils!
  • Top Handle for easy transportation. Perfect to travel with all of your oils safely.

TOW Opinion
I love this case because it is durable and the right size for me to carry my oils to classes. I mostly have 15ml bottles in there and they fit snugly. When I walk, the bottles are not jostling around.

I have a few larger bottles (30ml) that I keep in the back because I have to force them, but it is not an issue. Considering that the case is not for the bigger bottles, I knew that it was a possibility that they would not fit. It is a tight fit, but I am not stressing the seams.

I like the fact that the handle is on top so that when I carry the case, all bottles remain upright.

TOW Final word: BUY. The entire case is good quality and I highly recommend it.

Blog tour: Hidden Hearts #contemporary #romance

HIDDEN HEARTS
by Olivia Dade
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 6/20/17
An Admirer With A Secret . . .
Mary Higgs could be the poster girl for
the buttoned-up librarian. She follows the rules. Stays ʼtil
closing. Her kindness and dedication to her patrons is legendary. But
those patrons have no idea what she’s typing to the mysterious
shut-in who emailed the library needing a library card three months
ago . . .
When the elusive Miles O’Connor shows
up, he’s no invalid. A year ago, he was the gleaming, ab-sational
star of the small screen. Then came the accident. Now he’s a
wounded recluse with a pizza habit and fears so unshakable that only
the thought of losing Mary to an online date could lure him out of
his cabin.
Soon their email rapport has turned
into weekends on the couch, watching tearjerkers and driving each
other insane with red-hot makeout sessions. But as the desire grows
and their horizons expand, the life that brought them together might
not be enough for either of them . . .
Olivia Dade grew up an undeniable—and
proud—nerd, prone to ignoring the world around her as she read any
book she could find. Her favorite stories, though, were always
romances. As an adult, she earned an M.A. in American history and
worked in a variety of jobs that required her to hide her bawdy
interior under a demure exterior: Colonial Williamsburg interpreter,
high school teacher, academic tutor, and (of course) librarian.
Finally, though, she realized the call of the hussy could no longer
be denied. So now she writes contemporary romantic comedy with plenty
of sex, banter, and nerdery. When not writing, she cooks alongside
her husband, dabbles in photography, and tries to hide her collection
of throbbing-intensive romances from her curious daughter. Visit her
on the web at oliviadade.com.

To serve and protect…
That’s my job.
That’s who I am, and what I do.
It’s what I’ve always done.

And when she comes back to town,
She’s all I want,
All I need.

But I know better.
I refuse to give into my desire.
I’ll never hurt her,
Never leave her.

And my job alone threatens it all,
Threatens everything.
I have to stay away,
Otherwise, I’ll break her,
Ruin her,
And destroy us.

What you’re looking for might be right in front of you…


BROOKE FURY
Betrayed. Destroyed. Shattered.
But, I’m used to it.
After all, I’m a cop, and I’ve seen the worst.
I just never thought it would happen to me.
But it did.

Now, I can’t trust anyone.
Not him.
Not myself.
Nobody.

RYAN CAGE
Determined. Loyal. Honest.
But she won’t trust me,
Won’t let me in.
Even though I’m a detective, 
I can’t solve the mystery.

No matter how hard I try,
She pushes me away.
What she doesn’t realize,
Is I’m the one thing she can count on,

Forever.

Christine Zolendz, a USA Today Bestseller, resides in New York City with her favorite NYPD detective and their two beautiful daughters. She loves reading, writing, wine, and caramel lattes.

Excerpt

Was someone watching Ben, and sending him threatening messages? Honestly, it didn’t surprise her. Only God knew how many enemies the man must have had.

With her heart pounding and hands shaking she started opening the smaller envelopes. The first one gripped her, it had a drawing of Ben in his office at work. Sitting on his desk in a very seductive manner was an image of his busty secretary blowing kisses at him.

The next letter, however, brought home the seriousness of the situation to her as she read it. It was written in dark red ink and stated:

You shouldn’t have so much sugar in your coffee, and your wife should wear the new lipstick she bought last week. It will match that dress she’s wearing perfectly.

Taylor should take better care of her cat, and Wade needs better lighting in his room. It would be a shame for him to leave again when he’s only just returned.

It was only after she read that that realization truly dawned on her and tore at her insides.

Regina gasped. This person wasn’t just watching Ben. It was all of them. They were watching all of them, and this note was recent. As in a few days ago recent. Wade had only been home since Monday, and she bought that lipstick last week.

Cold terror gripped her in its icy embrace, and she could do nothing but stand there and stare at the note, paralyzed with fright. Someone was watching them, and watching so closely that they knew how much sugar Ben put in his coffee.

God!

Were they watching her now? Could they see her?

She whirled around and looked at the large casement window behind her. Maybe they could see her in here. Maybe they had cameras set up inside the house.

She looked back to the note to read it again, and noticed how the letters on some of the words smudged out. That was when it occurred to her that it wasn’t written in red ink.

It was…blood!
