Olay Total Effects

 This is sponsored content from BlogHer and Olay.

I was asked by BlogHer and Olay to review their newest product “Total Effects”.  Because I am undergoing skin changes, both with pregnancy and aging (I’m about to hit the 40’s), my skin is in need of some help!
I have never had a skin care regimen. I know I have needed one - especially as I have entered my 30’s but I find it hard and time consuming to put several things on every night. I can’t seem to remember or I’m too tired to do it.
So I was excited to try this new product because it has 7 things in one!
* Line minimization
* Cooling moisturization (and going into winter - I really need that!)
* Energizes apperance (if anyone needs some energizing to their skin - it’s me!)
* Gentle Exfoliation
* Pore refinement (I have HUGE pores so this is a big one to me)
* Free radical defence
*Subtle lifting (and if only this would work on ALL the body. Ha!)

I’ve only used the product for a few days but I already feel like my skin looks better! I’m going to be posting for 4 weeks - so I’ll let you know if I actually see improvement or not!

I’d love to hear about your skin care regimen or if you don’t have one - how does this all in one product sound???

"A Minute for Mommy" Giveaway

  One of my close friends who I happen to think is one of the Godliest girls I know recently wrote a devotion book for moms! I'm going to give away 3 copies of it here if you will leave me a comment! (PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE A WAY FOR ME TO CONTACT YOU!)

If you don't win - there are several ways you can get the book - go to one of the links at the bottom and order or you can get a signed copy by emailing her at

About the book:

You know you’re a mom when:
•You cannot remember the last time you took a shower.
•Laundry is an everyday activity, but folding it is not.
•You are eating chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, or pizza…again!

But you also know you’re a mom when:
•Your heart melts when that sweet little voice says, “I love you, Mommy.”
•Your fridge is covered with special crafts, photos, and award ribbons.
•Hearing your child sing brings you joy and a smile.

Moments like these make being a mother worthwhile, and A Minute for Mommy is the perfect devotional to help you cherish and remember each one. Join Berkli Binns as she reflects on her motherhood experiences and lessons God has taught her through her children.

With thirty-one inspirational devotionals, you can read through it in a month or just pick it up when you need some encouragement. Take A Minute for Mommy, and you’re sure to be drawn closer to your children and, more importantly, the Lord.

Berkli Binns lives in Bentonville, Arkansas, with her husband, Richard. She has two boys—Clay, age five, and Caleb, age three. She is an active member of the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas, where she serves on the women’s ministry council. Berkli’s current and most rewarding occupation is homemaker.
