. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Not as young as you think

June 18, 2015

Not as young as you think

hat: old navy  tee: be you bravely  shorts: old navy  shoes: target

I always feel like I look way younger than I am, but I think that's starting to not be so true.  I haven't got carded the last many times I've bought alcohol.  I've  had my license ready to go and they don't even ask.  I often tell my sister how young I look and the other day she told me that perhaps I'm not quite as young looking as I think.  Thank you Lauren.  (What about a hat and a braid? Does that take me down a few years?)

So I think I'm a little late to the wrinkle cream, face care game, but I figure it's better late than never. Whether it's entering my 30's or having a baby, hello crow's feet and eye bags.  A few months ago I bought some expensive eye cream that I've been using every day and I'm really hoping I'm nearing the point where it starts to show.  

I'm also guilty of using those make up remover face wipes as my only face cleaning step, which I'm sure doesn't help.  Which is why I was excited when Kelly from Block Island Organics sent me their Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser and Organic Revitalizing Night Cream.  

Block Island Organics is a family owned and run company that started on Block Island, Rhode Island.  Their mission is to give everyone access to safe, effective, and lovable non-toxic suncare and skin care products. 

Now I am the first to admit that I love generic brands and knock off products, and am have very few organic things in my house.  But I am realizing that perhaps there are some things that are worth spending more money on, like face sunscreen, make up or moisturizers.  I've been using them for the last two weeks and I especially appreciate the moisturizer after being outside, sweaty and in the sun all day.  They smell good, are smooth, and I feel a little more like an adult using nicer products on my face, that I know are good for my skin.  And I'm sure hoping that is starts to help keep my wrinkles and bags from growing!  

If all else fails, a hat is the perfect way to hide a wrinkly, makeup less face and greasy hair. : )

I always thought I looked my age. But recently while we were on a trip, a gal in our tour group guessed me to be 23... I'll take it (I'm 28)!! :) I hate that I'm inching closer & closer to 30, and I know it's just a number, but still. 30. Yikes.

I love your outfit, esp. that baseball tee. So cute! And maybe it's time I look into a wrinkle cream myself... like I said... 30 is inching closer & closer every day :)

I turn 30 this week. AH! I'm old, but I still feel like I look young. Maybe I'm wrong. Haha. A braid, no make up and hat will do the trick though. ;)

Love this shirt, totally my style! Hat's all day if I could! Doing my hair is a waste most days because of the heat and humidity in SW FL. ugh! Lion's mane all day. :)

I started using face creams a few months ago but have not noticed a difference, I hope they are just preventative!
