Natural skin care
“Invest in your skin. it is going to represent you for a very long time” -Linden Tyler
When I was two months pregnant with David I read this life changing book called No More Dirty Looks, I completely literally threw out all our house care products, skincare products shampoo’s, make up beauty everything and switched like 98% over to all natural
It was really hard at first but now I really love it and I became an addict to all these different brands that I discovered- I have had a lot of trial and error so you’re getting just the best of the best as of right now
I love Egyptian magic it’s my favorite go to product! I use it as a moisturizer, conditioner for the ends of my hair, I use it as a cuticle, nail cream and for my elbows and knees I love it it’s awesome and I’ve been using it for about 10 years and it’s all natural and super cheap!!
The main skin care line I use is by May Lindstorm, it’s amazing handcrafted and so luxurious I feel like super pampered its really expensive but so worth it! I started using her line about a year ago & through my whole pregnancy with baby Zoe! I Highly recommend it! I like to buy the whole line at once- under the gift set section & it lasts about a year, the masks maybe a bit longer. love it and I am hoping to stay with her forever! she’s like amazing amazing amazing skincare line, you can get it at her site or Barnyes.
Tatta Harper makes an amazing facemask that’s really nice called the resurfacing mask and I use that every other week and then also this really amazing hydrating floral essence that I use daily. I also have the Be amazing chapstick it’s one of my favorites i have them everywhere!
Then there is Organic Bee venom cream which is like natures Botox by Lacreme Beaute! As a skin care product junkie I can promise this is out of this world fantastic. Its amazing, I like the overnight mask & he Superior Glow Hydrating Face Treatment – it’s incredible and have had great results!
I think that’s all for skincare for now always discovering & trying new things…
If you are using something you love tell me!
I know it was an unspoken thing something that no one mentioned and we felt guilty even about thinking ourselves but the question remained would our little girl make it? If she didn’t what would we do? how would we continue to live on? I couldn’t imagine life without her, but I couldn’t imagine life with her after the surgery.
I could not see past her surgery — not that I thought she wouldn’t make it, I want sure I just didn’t see any future beyond that.
People would tell me not to be scared, that everything would be OK, but there is no way to not be scared .
no one knew, even the doctors didn’t know there is no for sure in this world. i had to hand my baby to the doctors to cut open and undergo open-heart surgery that was a chance, a chance I had to take because without it she couldn’t live.
She was pretty much up all night playing with these two- ziggy the bunny & Chloe the doll -so they moved us down to cicu #chla which is great progress in her
Thank you gifts for our amazing nurses!!

Daddy & Zoe pre surgery… giving Zoe good vibes & energy
For all those who asked #TOF aka #tetralogyoffallot means 4 things are wrong with #zoeevarose #heart they hopefully will all be fixed today during her #openheartsurgery @childrensla with Dr. Starns > the surgery will most prob take 4-5 hours, where they will sew her hole, remove extra tissue open & replace her valve and align her arteries. Thank you so much for all your support and love please continue with the #goodvibes & prayers ??? #prayforzoeevarose
She is all smiles it breaks my heart she is so trusting, but she needs this to live at least she is so young she won’t remember…. I Love you forever and always zoe….
