Breezy Days: June 2017

Red, White, and Blue

June 26, 2017

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays! Ryan and I go all-out every year to celebrate our country. Our usual tradition is to float down the Provo River on the 4th, but since the water is so high this year we probably won't risk it since I'm not a great swimmer haha 


We're looking at doing a family BBQ, paddle board in Deer Creek Reservoir, and enjoy all the Freedom Festival activates Provo has going on all weekend. Provo goes crazy with hot air balloons, Stadium of Fire, carnivals, you name it!


I snagged this dress from Target a few weeks back cause it's some comfy, and it goes perfect with my fireworks Woven Pear socks! They are total dyna-mite ;) 


What are you doing for the 4th?

A Natural Tanned Goddess

The older I get, the more I've focused on healthy skincare. The biggest issue I come up against is scaly skin, with how dry the air is in Utah. I swear my skin wasn't such a desert when I lived in California! ;)

I've also become extremely aware of how often my skin is exposed to the sun. The rays not only cause burns and wrinkles, but also can lead to skin cancer. So scary! I have used a sunless tanner the the past few summers, since it provides an amazing glow. But, now JERGENS® has come out with a new product that takes care of all my skin needs! 


The JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin® Moisturizer is an in-shower gradual tanner, that moisturizes my dry skin while also giving me a beautiful glow! It helps me avoid all the self-tanner hassle. When I'm done with a shower and while my skin is still damp, I rub this moisturizer into my skin! The color takes about 3-5 days to develop, that way I can control the the shade I want for my glow.



I picked up the Light to Medium shade from my local Walmart, to get started :) Prior to these pictures I have used the product 2 times, which means that I'm finally getting away from being stark white! haha


JERGENS Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer needs to be applied when the skin is still wet, as that is when you can really see the benefits of both moisture and natural color.


Another massive benefit to this product is that it does not get on your towels! Hip hip hooray! That is one of my biggest gripes when getting spray-tanned or using a sunless tanner, it stains all of my towel and clothes. Right after using the The JERGENS Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer, you can pat off the excess and head out the door! 



Now that our backyard is well on it's way to being done, we are throwing more backyard parties which means I gotta look the part! The JERGENS Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer makes me feel confident in my skin and gives me peace of mind. I can now feel like a smooth tanned goddess without all the harmful sun rays, and that is priceless!


What summer event do you have coming up that you're excited about? And want to look like a glowing goddess for? :)

New York Travel Guide: Philly Walking Tour

June 4, 2017

On Sunday during trip to the east coast we drove with our friends Shane and Amelia out to Philadelphia to meet up with some mutual friends Sam and Katie-Ann, to check out the history this city has to offer! We ate some amazing food, saw all the historical sites, and walked over 30k steps :)

Geno's Philly Cheesesteak: 1219 S 19th St
Our first stop was to get a classic Philly cheesesteak! We decided on Geno's versus Pats, because honestly the line was shorter haha It was delicious, and I got dripping grease all over!


Reading Terminal Market: 51 North 12th Street
This is a fun indoor market with so much fun food! We were hoping to hit the Amish Donut shop but they were closed when we were there, bummer! You guys will have to go for me ;)


Liberty Bell: 6th St & Market St
This is a given in Philadelphia, right? So cool to see all the history here!



Independence Hall
Seriously SO COOL. I feel like I'm in 'National Treasure' ;)


Christ Church: 20 N American Street
A local we met at Gens's suggested we stop by this historic church where Betsy Ross and Ben Franklin worshipped! The architecture is stunning, and the greenery beautiful.



Elfreths Alley: 124-126 Elfreth's Alley
This alley is so darling! It is one of the first row of homes in the United States, and there are still people living in these quaint homes. The perfect photo op :)


Franklin Square: 200 N 6th Street
We walked through this gorgeous park and took a quick seat here. Didn't snag any pictures because we were having so much fun chatting with our friends and resting our feet!

Amada: 217-219 Chestnut St
Our friends have such great taste in food and suggested we go here for dinner at this tapas restaurant. OMG. I'm drooling just thinking of the Ensalada de Jamon! It's a bit spendy here, but totally worth it. I learned that a lot of New York chefs move their restaurants to Philly because the rent is cheaper, so it has become an amazing food scene!


The Franklin Fountain: 116 Market St
We ended the night on an ice cream note! Loved how our scoops came in these fun Chinese take-out style boxes :)
