Skiing Steamboat Springs, Colorado

    My boyfriend and I decided to go on a ski trip this year, and so we took of to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, at the end of February to hit the mountain! I had never been to Steamboat, but Max had a couple of times, so it was nice that he knew the towns whereabouts.

    The town of Steamboat is an adorable, very Western, mountain city. The locals are friendly, the snow is amazing (Steamboat Springs produces the most Winter Olympians in the country!) and it's of course breathtakingly gorgeous.

  1. One of our favorite food stops was Creekside Cafe for Breakfast. Look at these chocolate chip pancakes!! Perfect fuel for a day of traveling down the mountain.

We can't wait to visit Steamboat Springs again!

Finally Using a Real Razor

For years I have been using disposable razors to shave. I have no idea why, but it is kind of the habit I got into. This bad habit resulted in my having to replace my razor every few uses and my dry skin only getting dryer from the poor quality blades.

Luckily for me and my skin, Harry's reached out to me and offered to send me a razor and their luxury blades. When I initially think of Harry's I think of them for their men's subscription service, but after talking with their team (and shortly after seeing their displays in my local Target) I soon learned that their luxury style razors are for everyone!

Since receiving my razor, refillable blades, and heavenly-smelling and moisturizing shave gel, my legs and under-arms have been smooth, hydrated, and overall very silky! I find that I get a super close shave, all without stripping the top layer of my skin. Plus, the blades are of such high quality, that I don't have to replace them near as often. I can't believe I actually willingly used disposable razors for years before this!

My shave kit is the Truman Set which comes with a razor handle, 3 refillable blades, shave gel, and two safety head-covers. You can check out their shave products here, or even their auto-shave plans here for the convenience of fresh blades being sent right to your door in a subscription fashion. You can even sign up for a free trial if you'd just like to try the razors out.

Overall, my shave-game will never be the same... for the better!

Thank you to Harry's for the complimentary Truman Set

The One

If you are a fan of the incredible hair styles that Lauren Conrad and Lucy Hale wear on and off the red carpet, then you may have heard of their extremely talented hair-stylist, Kristin Ess.

Coming of the celebrity-stylists-creating-hair-brand trend (a la Ouai by Jen Atkin), Kristin Ess has one-upped them all in my opinion by releasing her cleansing and styling lines via Target. Not only is the hair range extremely affordable, but the quality is Sephora-worthy.

I got my hands on "The One" Shampoo & Conditioner, and was taken by its claims of being lathering, sulfate free, and safe for daily use. I was using a sulfate-free shampoo previously that I feel like did not clean my hair at all and left it feeling flat and manky. Since my hair is color treated ('sup pre-mature grays)  & I am washing more frequently due to my half-marathon training, I was very intrigued by the bold claims of this everyday shampoo and conditioner.

I can honestly say that I am so unbelievably impressed by both the shampoo and conditioner! My hair feels clean, but not stripped at all, and I can't believe its an actual sulfate-free shampoo that lathers! That is probably the most amazing part, that and the fact that it actually feels so amazing and high-end for its super affordable price. My hair feels cleaned, nourished, manageable, and it smells amazing! The conditioner is super hydrating, but not heavy in slightest. The conditioner also holds the magnificent floral scent that I can smell long after my shower.

I'm waiting until I use up some of my current styling products before grabbing anything else from Kristin's giant range, but judging by how much my sister is living for her Thickening Spray, I may not be able to wait much longer.
