Eucerine #SkinFirst Review + Giveaway

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving!  So much to be thankful for!

I recently received a Eucerin skincare package featuring their new Eczema Relief cremes.  Perfect timing for these cold temperatures we've been having in Atlanta.  We all need to step up our skincare game during the cold months.  My husband has a slight eczema problem so I was excited for him try these new products.

Shop Small this Saturday

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  I'm happy to announce we have been invited to a few dinners on Thanksgiving Day after begging on the blog so I will not be cooking!  I am thankful for that!

After Black Friday, make sure to participate in Small Business Saturday.  We all get caught up shopping at the big chain stores for the holidays.  I think it's important that we support our small businesses the best we can.  I love small businesses because you can find items that no one else carries.  I wanted to share some of my favorite small businesses that you can shop for Small Business Saturday and beyond.

Thanksgiving Style

I can't believe Thanksgiving is this Thursday!  I'm still working on dinner plans.  I freaked out yesterday and purchased a small turkey.  Lawd knows I don't want to cook.  I don't know how you ladies do it!

Peyton wasn't going to do an outfit post this week but I came across these photos we took before heading to a birthday party a couple of weeks ago.  I thought it was a great Thanksgiving inspired outfit.

My Black Friday Picks

The greatest shopping day of the year is next Friday!  No matter if there is something I have to have or not, I love to be out in the Black Friday madness.  I think it's the thrill of being being one of the few people to score an awesome deal is what gets me excited.  Most of the sales have been released.  I went through some of the ads and picked out a few things that I thought were a steal.

Mad Plaid

During the cold months I dress more casual.  Who likes feeling cold and uncomfortable.  There are so many cute coats, hats and boots for the fall and winter to step up a casual look.  And just because it's fall, it doesn't mean we can't mix patterns.  Check out how I mixed my new favorite pattern, Plaid.

At Home Manicure in 9 Steps

I had an unfortunate gel manicure last month (pictured below).  I was against getting gel nails because they didn't last in the past, but I needed something that would last a few weeks.  I should have stuck with my gut and skipped the gel mani!  My nails looked horrendous day 5!  So I decided to get back to taking care of my own nails at home.

JeNu Skincare System: Before + After #NMBeauty

Plastic surgery is so common now and days.  I haven't had anything done but I'm not shocked when I hear other people do it.  I have nothing against having a little nip tuck to keep things tight, but before going under the knife I would like to find a non-surgical way to maintain.  I was ecstatic to receive the JeNu Active Youth Skin Care System from Neiman Marcus
