We are in New York and I am loving it! I have never lived in such big city. It is fun to go out shopping here, there are so many people. It is so busy. The city is all decked out for Christmas and the lights, trees and decorations are just stunning. There are SO many beautiful people here too. I almost don’t feel fancy enough to fit in!
We have been staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites. Since we are in town for a whole month we wanted to be as comfortable as possible. We considered lots of options, including other hotels and renting an apartment, or condo. But eventually we settled on staying here. The Hampton Inn is walking distance to the hospital Kris is working at, so I can keep the car if I need to. But it also has everything we need to entertain me and the kids. We can stay here all day if we want. There is a pool, free breakfast, laundry, a warm cozy fire to sit by, a bar where we can order food and drinks, comfortable work spaces so I can escape and get some work done while Kris is home, a gym… I could go on.
Since coming here I have started a new daily skin care regimen. I am not used to having a pool during the winter since our pool in Erie is outdoors. Obviously winter swimming outdoors in Erie is a no go. But we LOVE to swim. We are taking full advantage of our month here and swimming every day! I can’t swim laps for exercise since I have the kids with me, but I do running ‘laps’ around the pool while holding Zander. I have to say, running in water while holding a baby is a pretty good work out. That is the first step in my routine.
The second step is all about skin moisturizing. I brought all my favorite OSEA beauty products with me to New York because I simply can’t live without them, especially during the winter when my skin is so dry! After the pool I lather my whole body and the kiddies in Ocean Lotion. It is completely fragrance free, which I love for myself and the kids. And its luxurious blend of Rosehip, Kukui & Avocado oils and pure Shea Butter is deeply and instantly moisturizing.
In the evening I combine my Vitamin C Probiotic Polish with my Ocean Cleansing Milk and use it exfoliate and wash my face. It is the perfect skin-smoothing, brightening and exfoliating treatment. After that I use a touch of Blemish Balm! Blemish Balm helps reduce redness, skin irritation and the appearance of pores and oiliness, all while gently hydrating. I have noticed my skin aging a lot in the past year and so I have been taking extra care. Loving the results OSEA is giving me.
Now that I am done sharing my daily skin care regimen with you I think I will take the kids and go hop in the pool again for another swim! But not without giving you all a little gift… OSEA has some major sales going on for Black Friday, which you can learn more about here.
