Give Your Winter Skin Relief With CeraVe

 This post is sponsored by CeraVe®. All thoughts and reviews are my own.

Old man winter is not playing this year!!! With bomb cyclones and sub-zero temperatures, winter is wreaking havoc on our lives and our skin. We all know the impact the frigid temps can have on our face and body, so today on National Winter Skin Relief Day, I want to remind you all to give your skin the extra attention it needs right now! I know you’re probably more concerned about bringing back feeling to your finger and toes, but don’t forget we have to moisturize daily to prevent dry, chapped, and chafed skin too!

10 Starter Instant Pot Recipes



This past Christmas I got gifted an Instant Pot. To be totally honest, I really didn’t know much about it, other than that I’ve heard people really love their Instant Pot. Naturally, I googled it and stumbled across pages of glowing reviews, and now I’m curious and excited to put this 7-in-1 appliance to work! The problem is – I don’t know where to start! It can be a little intimidating, especially for someone like me who has never even owned a Crock Pot!

Pantone's Ultra Violet Picks


Happy New Year dolls! Can you believe it’s already 2018??? I know it’s been a minute since I’ve posted on Babblings, but a new year means a CLEAN SLATE! So, I’m ready to get the ball rolling with fresh new content and I thought I’d start it off with a post on Pantone’s color of the year: Ultra Violet!

This regal hue is meant to evoke a sense of dignity and feminism, and I for one am loving this vibrant shade! Purple has always been one of my favorite colors. It’s soft and feminine, but also demands attention. It’s definitely a color that stands out in a crowd. Whether you prefer to wear your ultra violet subtle or statement-making, here are a few ways you can wear it that would even make Prince proud!

Get Custom Skincare at St. Ives Pop-Up Mixing Bar



St. Ives has been on my radar ever since I discovered their iconic Apricot Scrub back in the 90’s. I mean, who doesn’t remember exfoliating with the cult classic?? Now it seems my life has come full circle because I’m once again falling in love with one of their exfoliants. This time, it comes in form of Watermelon Agave, which was freshly mixed for me at the St. Ives Mixing Bar.

The St. Ives Pop-Up Mixing Bar is only open until the end of this month, but it offers visitors the opportunity to create personalized face scrubs and body lotions from more than 50 customizable combinations, including never-before-seen St. Ives ingredients like: volcanic sand, papaya, pistachio, lychee, ginger and more!

Why Wonder Woman Matters And Is A Must-See!


Last Thursday, my daughter and I could barely contain our excitement as we made our way into a dark theater to watch an advance screening of Wonder Woman. We’ve been looking forward to this since the Amazonian princess made her brief debut in the Batman vs. Superman flick last year, and I must say, Wonder Woman did not disappoint! As a matter of fact, it BLEW ME AWAY. I rarely leave a theater wanting to watch a movie on repeat, but this movie was so damn good – I wouldn’t mind paying the grossly overpriced movie tickets again.

So, what made it so special you say?

This movie has it all. Action, Fun, Romance, Elaborate Costumes – you name it. They killed it. Gal Gadot slayed as a fiery demigoddess who is as compassionate and caring, as she is a fierce warrior. It was refreshing to see a woman on film not be the damsel in distress or the eye candy for once, but rather the heroine of the movie. It’s something we need to see more of, and more importantly, something our daughter’s need to see more of too.

Strong females who can do it all. Who are smart and witty. Who are brave and powerful. Who won’t back down when people tell her something can’t be done. Who deflect hate and anger with love and compassion. THIS is the type of role model our young daughters need to see in today’s society. Last year, I wrote about my feelings seeing Harley Quinn influence so many young and impressionable girls. As a matter of fact, I left the theater feeling dirty and uneasy that my daughter liked her so much. This time was different. I left the theater feeling empowered and proud that Arianna looked up to her. FINALLY, someone got a female lead right. If you haven’t seen it, RUN don’t walk!!! In the meantime, here are some of my favorite Wonder Woman finds that will make you feel like an Amazonian bad-ass.

Vacation Vibes

My family and I are exactly 4 weeks away from jet-setting to our tropical beach vacay!!! Ah… I can feel the ocean breeze already! As you can imagine, it’s hard to go around business as usual when paradise awaits you so I’ve been keeping busy, getting things ready, and picking up a few new things along the way. Arianna’s set with all new swimsuits from Justice. She’s a one piece girl, like her mama, so I picked her up this one and this one. BTW their swimsuits are $15 right now, so if you’re looking to score a deal, now is the time to do it!!! While I’ve set my eyes on Swimsuits For All and City Chic. I love City Chic’s resort wear. You can always find great finds like this highlighter hue swimsuit and scalloped shorts. I’M OBSESSED! For a cover-up, this chambray stripe maxi dress from Nordstrom caught my eye. Doesn’t it just scream beach vacay?? Below are few more things that have me dreaming of crystal water and white sandy beaches.
