This product was sent to me complimentary for testing purposes.
The Neostrata Firming Collagen Booster serum is very light and has a very faint scent, which is great for my sensitive skin. I use this serum after my regular washing and toning step. Keep swiping to see my before and after pictures. Not too much of a difference going on with my face but you can see some fine lines have disappeared from my forehead.
this is the only difference I can see or feel from this serum but I've only been using it for about three and a half weeks. I'm sure if I had more time to use this collagen booster more great results would show.
I usually wait for the product to dry before putting on face lotion. If you rub the lotion too much the serum comes off. Or if you use a brush to apply foundation you can see the product rubbing off. This is the only downfall.
I have tried other neostrata products and they are great but because the collagen booster is rubbing off its not my favorite.
Product claims- firming collagen booster formulated to replenish collagen. this replenishing collagen serum is the solution to Target lost facial volume that leads to diminished natural elasticity and bounce. this serum booster with 1% low-molecular-weight collagen solution is the perfect answer for sagging skin that is experiencing the effects of gravity.
Key Ingredients- • 1% low molecular weight collagen solution formulated to replenish collagen. • 6% Neoglucosamine pro-amino acid plant cell extract for firming and exfoliation.

I had an awesome 1st birthday in Australia 🇦🇺 on Friday 🎂 and was spoilt rotten! ⠀

Hubby took the day off work, so after I treated myself to a back massage in the morning, hubby took me over to Merewether Surfhouse as it’s somewhere we can’t usually go to as it’s a kids free zone. ⠀

We had a really tasty pizza with views overlooking Merewether Beach, and then after picking the little dude up from preschool, we went to Scratchleys On The Wharf which is a beautiful seafood restaurant with gorgeous views of Newcastle Harbour. ⠀

The dinner was delicious. I ordered the New Zealand red snapper and even Isaiah enjoyed it. He was also very entertained with the head of the fish, sticking his finger in its mouth (check out my stories) 🤦🏻‍♀️ 😂 ⠀

What’s your favorite seafood? ⠀

From now on, if you guys see my hair up, it’s safe to assume I haven’t washed it.😂🙇🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️
.

.
It’s also safe to assume, I at least showered and washed my unmentionables.😅💯
.
.
P.s. I’m trying to “re-set” my scalp.🤦🏻‍♀️

Schlaflos. Mein liebster Mann hat heute doch nicht, die „Nachtwache“ übernommen. 😅 Er konnte in der vergangenen Nacht nur 12 Stunden schlafen (ja,meint er ernst) & hat mich immer ganz wehleidig darauf hingewiesen, dass er irgendwie total fertig ist. 🤨 .
.
.
Also, „here we are“. 😅 Ich bin zu nett & kann dieses Gejammer nicht ertragen. Dafür bekomme ich in der Nächsten Woche, zwei freie Nächte. 😅😋 Ich glaube jetzt einfach mal daran. 😂 .

Do you remember what time you woke up on Christmas morning when you were little? ⁣

I'm pretty sure I woke up between 3 & 4 to sneak down and check out my stocking. By the time I was allowed to wake up my parents (7), I'm pretty sure I'd eaten more chocolate 🍫 than any little girl should have in a day let alone before breakfast. 😂⁣

I remember the whole day sort of being a glow of happiness, excitement, & lots of time spent with family. But as we get older, it's so easy to lose that child-like wonder. ⁣

As I saw my kids' faces light up as they made cookies & took in all the lights tonight, I couldn't help remembering Christmas when I was little. ⁣

What's a happy memory of Christmas that you have from when you were young? ⁣

Who else can relate?! Give me a 🙌🏾! Just in case anyone is wondering how my day has been going, this quote explains it in a nutshell. 🤦🏾‍♀️😂🤣 Sometimes you just have to laugh to keep from crying! Check on your mom friends... seriously! Thank you so much to my bestie Sparky for bringing the girls over and making me take a moment to regroup after a seemingly chaotic day. I love you forever and ever, and always here if you ever need me!! @shootingstarprints #momlife #wheresthewine #winenot #jesustakethewheel #mompreneur #takeabreak #breaktime #mommytime #metime #mommymoments

We’re spending today making cookies to share with our friends. This time of year is all about making memories that will hopefully turn into traditions that get passed down through generations. 🍪 Last night my parents had all the grandkids over for a sleepover. They decorated the Christmas tree, drove around to see the lights, and each kid got to bring home a gingerbread house. 🎄 My 3 year old is finally getting to the point where he understands what’s going on and it’s giving me all the feels. I hope he always enjoys this time of year as much as I do. ❤️

Our sensitive spirit😌
.
.
.
Isn’t it amazing how different our children are created?
.
Elijah is our sensitive child. His sensitivity in sadness, anger, or happiness is always heightened and sometimes a bit extreme, especially with sadness. When he misses someone, it hits him hard! He’s overcome with emotion and has a hard time overcoming it.
.
Sometimes he expresses that he doesn’t like how he gets so worked up and wishes he didn’t.
.
Matt and I explained to him, that although he may not see it now, the Lord has blessed him with his sensitive spirit for a reason. And as he grows older, he’ll learn to use it for the glory of the Lords kingdom.

There's something about putting items into boxes, holes, and containers that is absolutely fascinating for babies and toddlers...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As soon as Baby J learned that you could put items INTO boxes and holes, he was hooked. It's like there's some magnetic force driving him to put it in and take it out and put it in and take it out.... 😂😂😂😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is GREAT because it promotes so many milestones and development for your baby.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every time he picks something up and sets it down, he works on fine motor skills, strategizing exactly how he wants it, problem solving, finesse, and so much more!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sit back and enjoy watching your baby learn and explore and giggle at all the unique places that she finds to put things in. Here are a few of J's favorites:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Potatoes in the children's museum farm⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Ice cubes in any open spots in our popsicle mold⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Blocks in the pop holder on the couch⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Toys in all of our pots and pans⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 The random stuff on the bathroom floor in each of the drawers⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Anything and everything in the recycle bin 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Does your baby like to put things into random places? What's the silliest spot you've found so far?

QOTD: What Christmas fun have you been having lately?
🎄
“May your days be merry and bright!”
🎄
We may not have a white Christmas around here, but our weeks before Christmas are shaping up to be a whole lotta fun!
🎄
Last night we attended a Christmas festival at our church and this morning we did a stations of the manger event with our Sunday school class. Tonight we plan to drive around and look at Christmas lights then get pizza and watch Mickey’s Christmas Carol!

Who needs a new cleaning hack? ad

I discovered a secret weapon with @SharkCleaning! She goes around cleaning my floors while I get to do other things (like cooking and dish washing!). #SharkCleansSmarter 🦈

Even when I’m away, we can set a schedule and she knows exactly what to do. #LifeGotEasier

If there’s one thing I know, it’s that my floors are clean. 😂😂 #sponsoredbyShark #SharkIQRobot

This girl amazes me. My first born. My spotlight. My attention seeker. My one with absolutely no fear! She had a casting call for an undisclosed Disney show today at the #mallofamerica and before I could even finish asking it she'd even want to audition, she said OH, I'M TOTALLY DOING IT!⁣

It went really well and I'm so proud of her for trying! It would be really fun if she moved onto the next round, but I also told her that there were thousands of other kids that also tried out and she seemed just fine with it.⁣

We had an absolute blast together today and it's a true flashback of where I wish I'd be as a mom so many years ago. I'm living it right now. I get to go shopping with my girl, walking hand in hand, laughing and soaking in the one on one company.⁣

Feeling like a lucky mama. 🖤⁣

The bond between mother and child, no verbal word to describe the feeling you have for your little peanunt.. but you can see it miles away when you cuddle tight you can see she is proud, in love, a bit scared and soo much joy when she looks at her little bundle of joy... No matter how hard it was to get that baby in her arms safely...

cut your hair & change your life 🤷🏽‍♀️ that’s the saying right? Lol but y’all, if you know me you know I chop my hair off at least once a year. And ONLY the best is able to do it, @sdotmonte gets me right every time. 😍🌿 this is why I love her!

I love making the triplets special meals - introducing them to new foods, and serving them creatively. Every time I go to the grocery store, I try to buy them at least one food that they have never tried before (like clams, kiwi, muenster cheese, spaghetti squash, leeks, etc!) . They are really good eaters - but they can also be REALLY messy! Notwithstanding that our dog, Dash, is a big help cleaning up food that has fallen on the floor --- I loathe cleaning up all of the mealtime mess . I was SO happy to discover @littledukebibs. They have a silicone catch tray to collect food, and they are soft at the top (so that they don't grab the triplets' hair when they're snapped). AND - the snaps are strong - so my little Houdinis can't pull them off. Anything that can help me have a little more fun and a little less mess is a win! Use code MIGHTY50 for 50% off!

::Gift Idea:: Liam looked down at his lunch today and saw the green peas I had given him.
I could see his wheels turning and not for the reason you think... You see we’ve gotten into a habit of discussing what color our food is and what it DOES for our body.
I asked him, “what does green food do for your body?” He thought for a second then grinned as he looked up back at me to say, “ green food makes you STRONG and STURDY!” Y’all. I have never taught my son the word sturdy before.
As we giggled and he kept showing me his muscles I said, “Now where in the world did you learn the word sturdy?” He smiled and said, “from the Big Truck Little Truck book Mommy” totally his newest favorite to read.
And to that I repeat because I didn’t come up with this saying but it’s oh so true... “A book is a gift you can open again and again and again.” That’s what children need-gifts they can play with for hours, full of possibilities. So when I went to start looking a gift that would keep on giving, I landed on the idea of a subscription box. I looked through several before I landed on this one... A Prime Book Box for Kids!
Two hand selected, hard-covered books delivered to our door for Liam to open each month-oh my I can’t wait!!! Best mail ever and it will be the gift that keeps on giving this next year!!! So if you are looking for a little extra something or need an easy idea-go check this out and tell me what you think (link in bio too): https://amzn.to/36wppYT

I can hardly comprehend how fast 2019 flew by and is almost gone! We certainly haven’t traveled as much as in years past, but we sure have had a wild ride! This kid is growing leaps and bounds these days and I love how he is growing. He is fun loving, full of expression and joy that can be felt when your around him. It’s a beautiful thing to witness! Can’t wait to see what next year brings for us! #mommymoments #boymom

Love you More than words can say. 💭

Mom heute eine Minute kurz vorm Herzinfarkt. Helen war in der Tragetasche und entgegen ihrem normalen Verhalten - unglaublich ruhig. Ich bin so oder so schon hypervorsichtig und schau alle paar Minuten nach, wie es ihr geht. Das sie schläft ist auch normal aber diesmal hat sie sich nicht gerührt. Ich hab gefühlt eine Ewigkeit gebraucht bis ich eine Regung von ihr bekommen habe. Ich und mein Mann sind fast ausgeflippt, solche Angst hatte ich noch nie in meinem Leben. Am Ende war die Maus nur todmüde und hat in der Trage auch 4 Stunden geschlafen .
Ich bin allerdings bis jetzt noch erschrocken wie sehr ich dieses Kind liebe und wie viel Panik in einem aufsteigen kann bei dem Gedanken , ihr könnte etwas geschehen. .

It’s no secret 🤫 (at least around here) that I have anxiety. My social anxiety can be especially overwhelming, particularly in new situations. ⁣

Today at dance, S was feeling anxious, too. She left her class to come look for her dad and I. In that moment I was faced with two choices: let her leave (which would’ve been easier for my anxiety in the moment,) or coach my daughter through her anxiety (while also facing my own.) ⁣

Any parent who has anxiety knows how enormously draining that second one feels, even though it sounds like the “obvious” choice. But, alas, we are parents and we are determined to do right by our children. ⁣

So, with my skin hot and tears burning at the back of my eyes, we took deep breaths and then we tried again. I spent the rest of dance class with her, dancing and helping her finish. And by the end, she was doing a great job all on her own. ⁣

Tonight, we will celebrate with our annual girls night at the Fairmont. And, S is already excited to go back to dance for her party tomorrow. ⁣

I feel so blessed for this little girl and how much she has taught me. 💗⁣

PS, if anxiety is anything that you or your child struggles with, the faculty at @evolutionsdance is truly so kind and caring and helpful in navigating those tough situations with your littles. 💗

Sometimes my husband or people say I “over do it” for the kids (for all) holidays. This doesn’t mean gifts, but constant Christmas activities and adventures. Yes it does add a little stress doing crafts everyday, baking cookies, thinking of creative things to do with his elf on the shelf but to me it is 150% worth it. I love it, I love seeing the magic in his face, I love the excitement, I love it all. So the point is do all the magical stuff with your kids. It may cause a mess or add some stress but it’s worth it because next year they will older and we don’t get very many Christmas with our littles!

dropped that base to a more deeper tone, just in case you didn't notice. And rocking some 3 day old hair. Life got kinda chaotic. 🤪
.
✨and y’all, don’t let the makeup fool you. I legit should not be seen out in public today. 😂 I scared my own self in the mirror, and there’s enough shape tape and bronzer on my face to offend the heaviest hand. .
The acne these days is killing me. On a mindful mission to figure this one out.
.
😂😭 tomorrow though. I feel it. tomorrow’s gonna be better!

When you fall in love with the journey and the woman you are becoming, self improvement becomes fun, easy, and exciting.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a mom of 4, I know how hard it can be to make time for yourself. I spent a decade the last priority in my own life always fighting for more. It wasn't until I learned to focus on my desires, having fun, and doing less, that everything began to change. I've gotten in the best shape of my life, started a business, made incredible new friends, transformed my marriage, improved my relationship with my kids, travel more, make more money, and just plain LOVE my life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every day is a new adventure and life feels damn good...as it's supposed to. This is all available to you if you're willing to give up the idea that transformation has to be hard or that a dream life is for other women.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let me show you how to do less, to have more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can kickback to kick start your best year yet.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hangin with my mooch.

Alanna is spending the night with Grams so I took Layla to Target early to get a few things. We left before the boys got up. It was very quiet and nice to just walk around together. She’s a great shopping buddy.

What are you doing today?

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” // 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 .
.
But am I content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities? If I am being 100% honest, the things the Lord has asked of me lately have caused me to wrestle with a lot of weakness. Theology Thursday is not a walk in the park for me. Though, it may look that way- every Wednesday since I started Theology Thursday, I feel attacked. Not just slightly attacked- but heavily attacked where some days I am in tears. Most Thursday mornings I wake up and don’t read or write. I simply pray. I get in the presence of the Lord, completely aware of how incapable I am without Him. .
.
I could go on and tell you all the lies that the enemy puts in my ears- But I’m learning that I am nothing without the Lord. That being made empty, is kinda the point. I am an empty vessel without Him. Spiritually dead without His Spirit. When I am emptied of self, is when I am able to be most full of Him. I’m thankful that God doesn’t need me to do His work, but He includes me anyway. Because that’s what a loving Father does. .
.
Thank you Lord for loving me and challenging me towards growth in You. Thank you for your mercies and grace. Help me learn how to become content everyday in my weaknesses, striving everyday for sanctification towards You. Only when I’m emptied can I be made full. Take over Lord. It is all yours. .

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” // 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 .
.
But am I content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities? If I am being 100% honest, the things the Lord has asked of me lately have caused me to wrestle with a lot of weakness. Theology Thursday is not a walk in the park for me. Though, it may look that way- every Wednesday since I started Theology Thursday, I feel attacked. Not just slightly attacked- but heavily attacked where some days I am in tears. Most Thursday mornings I wake up and don’t read or write. I simply pray. I get in the presence of the Lord, completely aware of how incapable I am without Him. .
.
I could go on and tell you all the lies that the enemy puts in my ears- But I’m learning that I am nothing without the Lord. That being made empty, is kinda the point. I am an empty vessel without Him. Spiritually dead without His Spirit. When I am emptied of self, is when I am able to be most full of Him. I’m thankful that God doesn’t need me to do His work, but He includes me anyway. Because that’s what a loving Father does. .
.
Thank you Lord for loving me and challenging me towards growth in You. Thank you for your mercies and grace. Help me learn how to become content everyday in my weaknesses, striving everyday for sanctification towards You. Only when I’m emptied can I be made full. Take over Lord. It is all yours. .

Poor little girl caught her brothers cold so to put a little smile on her face I put her in the sink with warm water. She loves the sink and I think last time I did was her last milestone photo. We also added this gorgeous pendant but I have to admit I’m hard with change and this one isn’t a direct light so trying to get used to that. Anyone else undecided on changes?

Well we spent our Monday back at the doctor. It’s been a rough 10 days but I want to say I think they’re on the mend after today..🤞🏼. Let’s hope anyways!! I’ve changed enough poop diapers to last anyone a lifetime. BUT, then again, what else am I here for🤷🏼‍♀️. Seriously tho, is it summer yet?! It just seems so much healthier and easier to get out and it just makes me and my babies happy!!! After Christmas we need a vacation, somewhere preferably warmer, kid friendly, and driving distance from Mississippi. Any suggestions??

Gather round, it’s storytime...I knew Kai was on the spectrum around 9 months. By 19 months we were through the tedious appointments and paperwork and going full throttle in ABA sessions, speech therapy, and playgroups.⠀
*⠀
*⠀
*⠀
He attended 2 years in an inclusion preschool classroom, where he was also the youngest (due to his birthday). He did ok but his speech delay and immaturity were still very relevant. ⠀
*⠀
*⠀
*⠀
At the time, I thought keeping him in the inclusion preschool classroom for an extra year was the best option. I went all the way up the chain of command with this request to no avail. ⠀
*⠀
*⠀
*⠀
They told us our options were have him be the youngest kid in Kindergarten (and beyond) or to pull him. ⠀
So we pulled him.⠀
*⠀
*⠀
*⠀
Homeschooling him last year taught me just as much as he learned, probably more.⠀
*⠀
*⠀
*⠀
Fast forward to now, first kindergarten quarter down and this dude is THRIVING!!⠀
*⠀
*⠀
*⠀
Kai has mastered 5 of his social skills and behavioral IEP goals⠀
He scored 167 on the developmental reading awareness word analysis, the fall benchmark for kindergarten is 61.⠀
He took the Early Number Assessment and scored at the 2nd grade benchmark. ⠀
*⠀
*⠀
*⠀
Moral of the story, trust your gut and do what is right for YOUR individual kid. ⠀
*⠀
*⠀
*⠀
Also, EARLY INTERVENTION!! If your parental gut is telling you your kid may be on the spectrum, get with your pediatrician immediately. ⠀
