Fall is officially my new favorite season. It used to be summer, but I think I enjoy family vacations in warm and sunny destinations more than actually having the heat at home. Crisp air, falling leaves, crockpot meals, boots, leggings, sweaters ... the list goes on and on! Heading into the holidays brings a bit of excitement to these next couple of months, and enjoying such beauty in this season is priceless.
Our Husky loves to play in the leaves.
Kicking off the holiday season with our annual
family trip to the pumpkin patch!
During this time of year, a warm drink can always be found in my hands ... so I would like to add some warmth to your days as well!

I recently signed up to be a part of BrandBacker, a site that gives bloggers opportunities to participate in product testing campaigns.
I was selected to test out this eye cream by Resvology. I am all about finding products that will help me combat my lovely dark circles and puffy eyes. My under-eye issues are in my DNA, so simple cover-ups just don't work. I need products that are going to pack a punch ...
Meet Resvology Age Corrective Eye Cream!!
Lightweight, hydrating eye cream formulated with clinically-proven 4-AR Molecule to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet while botanical extracts and replenishing hydrators help combat dark circles and puffiness. Lifts, firms, tightens and refines the skin for eyes that seem to turn back time.
Unprecedented results. An independent consumer use study of 40 women using the Age Corrective Eye Cream twice a day reported that skin is visibly smoother, more hydrated and exhibited fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
100% agree fine lines and wrinkles are minimized
100% agree eye area is firm
100% agree eye area is hydrated
100% experienced smoother skin texture
98% agree skin elasticity is increased
* Self-perception study conducted in December 2011 on 40 subjects for 28 days.
- Excites pro-collagen and elastin youth proteins for smooth, firm, youthful skin
- Crow’s feet and fine lines are virtually erased
- Promotes firmness and restores lost elasticity
- Targeted brightening agents visibly fight dark circles
- Deflates puffiness and tightens eye contours
- Suitable for all skin types
- Dermatologist tested

- Safe for contact lens wearers
- 4-AR Molecule helps reignite youthful gene expression and boosts presence of collagen and elastin in the skin
- Targeted peptides reduce the depth and complexity of fine lines and deeper wrinkles
- Vitamins A, E and C Ester neutralize damaging free radicals
- Panthenol conditions and hydrates
- Barley, Sandalwood and Olive extracts help soothe skin and renew natural moisture barrier
Let's start by saying that the packaging is quite pretty. It is always nice when a company takes the time to make their bottles look just as beautiful as the product, itself, is intended to make you look and feel.
I have been using the Resvology eye cream twice a day, as directed, for 6 days. I squeeze about a half of a pump of cream onto my finger and pat it over my entire eye area. It is great that you use just a dab each time ... a little goes a long way, which is always nice on the checkbook! The texture is silky smooth and absorbs instantly, which makes this perfect under my concealer. Within just a few minutes, my puffiness is dramatically decreased ... from just woke up, tired eyes to BAM! ready to take on the day alertness! My skin is smooth and noticeably tighter. I still have the dark circles, however, they seem to be getting lighter each day I am using the product. Regardless, my concealer is a force when combined with this de-puffing, eye brightening cream each morning. And at the end of the day, when all my make-up is off and my face is freshly washed, the creamy lotion is quite soothing and refreshing. It feels great going to bed at night knowing that my new eye cream is working some magic while I sleep.
I am really excited to see what results I will continue to benefit from a few more weeks from now. Resvology's Age Corrective Eye Cream has already awakened my eyes to a new softness, brightness and firmness, in just a few short days!

I am so late to the game. I have heard of the TV show, Sons of Anarchy, for years. I never thought it would interest me though. Motorcycle gangs usually aren't my thang.
I came across a pic on Pinterest of Jax Teller, aka Charlie Hunnam, and thought he looked a little bit like my hubby (only with blonde hair). I showed Tim the pic and he said that he has had a few people say that Jax was his doppleganger. He had never seen the show either.
I was intrigued by this tatted-up, bad ass look-a-like of my man, so we started watching Season 1 of Sons of Anarchy.
I am now hooked.

Oh how I love this season! Sweaters, leggings, boots ... the words of fall!
This adorable lace tunic was found on Zulily. I am obsessed with this site for cheap, cute finds!
Layered with an Abercrombie soft gray sweater that I have had for years ...
Paired with black, fleece lined leggings that I got at Fred Meyers for $7.99, and boots from Target that I got a few years ago.
Cute fashion on the cheap!
This adorable wristlet was also purchased on Zulily.
Happy Girl for the Fall Season!
