The Best 7th Birthday Party at Pump It Up, HB | @PumpItUpOC

Just this last week, my handsome boy turned 7. The years are going so fast (as everyone said they would), but this time, we were extra busy with enrolling him in soccer and now Fall baseball. Typically I enjoy throwing him huge parties at the house, inviting all our local relatives as well as a few (10-20) of his closest friends. Yes, a HUGE undertaking, but this year our schedule didn’t allow it! Thankfully we decided to rely on Pump It Up in Huntington Beach to help us create the perfect celebration for our birthday boy.

A Youthful Look Without Breakouts – Belli | @BelliSkincare

Product review post graphic

I’m always game to try out new facial products, especially since I’m getting up there in age. Yes, I’m past the big 40 and maintaining a good skincare regimen has become important to keep my skin looking young. However, I have consistently had to deal with adult acne, and it’s really driving me a bit batty, till I was introduced to Belli Anti Blemish Facial Wash and Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub.

Typically I was my face two times a day due to an oily T-zone. Sometimes it’s even up to three times a day. In the evenings, for the past month I’ve been using the Anti Blemish Face Wash after taking off my makeup to make sure my skin is clean. Continue reading
