28 Days of Olay Luminous

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

As a longtime fan of Olay, during my college years, Olay kept my face flawless on a budget. Now that I’m knocking on 40, my skin requires a little more maintenance. About a month ago I shared on Instagram that I was participating in the #Olay28Day challenge using only the Olay Luminous line for my skincare needs. I have very dry areas on my face. As a woman of color, it’s hard to find that balance of moisture that doesn’t make you look greasy. Keep reading for my before and after results.

This post is sponsored by Pampers.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

It’s hard to believe that Harper is already two years old. It seems like yesterday I was just announcing I was pregnant and having a baby shower.  She’ll always be my baby but when kids turn two they’re technically not babies anymore. As I stand in her room and look around at all the things that helped us keep our little girl happy and healthy over the years, there is one item I’m so thankful I added to my registry and continued to use: Pampers Swaddlers.

I wanted to share with you how I maintain a healthy scalp with a few simple tips and the help of Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner.

Eye Cream Round-Up

I like to consider myself somewhat of an eye cream connoisseur.  I’ve been using eye creams consistently since my mid 20’s.  I didn’t start using them to fight the war against wrinkles, but to hydrate my eye area.  I had a few makeup artists tell me the skin around my eye area was extremely dry.  I’ve been hoarding eye creams ever since.  I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I barely have fine lines or wrinkles in my eye area… well outside of the idea that “black don’t crack”.  Since eye creams can get on the pricey side, I thought I would share some of my favorites that you should try before making that commitment.

Peyton Reviews Kelley Blue Book’s Best Family Cars {Video}



This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Kelly Blue Book; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

It’s that time of year!  Back to school is that crazy time of the year where us moms are running around like crazy looking for 200 glue sticks, matching socks and seeing how long our kids can wear those new shoes that you bought before they had a summer growth spurt.  Not to mention getting ready to run the children back and forth to school and activities.  Having the best wheels for back to school can make for a great school year.  Peyton had the opportunity to review of the Honda CR-Vone of Kelley Blue Book’s best family cars of 2017.  Watch the video below to see what Peyton thinks about Honda CR-V.
