Do you have that one thing that you you stand firm on? That you believe in so strongly, that you’ll fight til the end for it? For me it’s kindness. It’s something that I so much believe in, it’s something I stand firm for and think that well we could all do a little better at, including myself. Sometimes we just get so caught up in us, our lives and our needs that we forget to be kind. Sometimes we witness things around us and we sit back quietly and watch rather than standing up and loving. Other times we sit and criticize ourselves, we pull ourselves apart and pick out every “imperfection” we think we have. Those things. Those are the things that I believe in changing, that I believe that we need to fix, make an effort and promote kindness.
I was talking with friends the other day and we were saying, I don’t understand why all of us Moms can’t just support each other, love each other and help one another. I sat there and though, seriously though, WHY? Why is this so hard for us? Things are constantly a competition, often a judgement and so much a miscommunication. So often we assume the worst, we judge rather than really understanding (me included) and we constantly think we need the next best thing so we can keep up with society. I mean, does any of that really matter? It’s so easy to get mad, frustrated and judgmental, but honestly, it’s just as easy to be kind, to give people the benefit of the doubt and to love. I mean a simple smile when a Mom looks tired, frustrated and at her wits end, small little things like holding the door or waiting patiently in line rather than getting irritated that things are moving too slow. That’s all it takes.
This is why i love Algenist’s #standfirm campaign. They want you to stand up, to share what you “stand firm” on. It goes hand in hand with their product.
When I find a product I love, I want to share it with y’all. You know — one that I really, really, love and am like THIS! Did I emphasize that enough for you? Since well, we started our infertility journey back in the day for Blake, my skin has been WHACK, like really bad, with a mind of its own. It’ll go from dry, to acne, to good, to oily to red, basically it’s just a giant hot mess. Well one of my biggest problems has been dryness around my nose, for whatever reason and it makes my make up flakey and quite honestly, me self conscience.
Previously I have used three different moisturizers, in different areas to fix this problem, but FINALLY I have found something that works for all of it and tightens my skin, which means I only have to use one product. BOOM.
The product is by Algenist and called their “Conturing Cream”. Algenist is an award-winning clinical skincare brand from Silicon Valley. The motto is “10 minutes to firm. 10 minutes to sculpt.” Literally y’all, the fast-acting peptides and instant sculpting texture firms skin in 10 minutes, clinically measured. Like it’s that good. How it works is, a unique gold delivery system, partnered with Alguronic Acid, provides extended peptide activity for a visible sculpted face in 10 days. I can testify to y’all that it literally works. I mean it, my face it firmer, more moisturized and brighter than ever before and I have been using it for about three weeks. It’s game changing.
Seriously, just go buy it, okay?
