Rodan + Fields Giveaway: Enter to Win Lip Serum or Eye Cream

It's been a few months since I've done a giveaway, and since the last one was so much fun, I want to do it again!

This month's prizes are another jar of Multi-Function Eye Cream ($60 value) and Redefine Lip Serum. There will be two winners - one winner for each product.

Our Multi-Function eye cream is a great all-around eye cream that utilizes peptides to visibly reduce the appearance of crow's feet, dark circles and puffiness, and noticeably brightens your eye area with optical filters that reflect light. It's one of our most popular products, and one jar often lasts approximately 6 months, if not more!
Our Redefine Lip Serum is also amazing! Rich with peptides and antioxidants, including vitamin E, Lip Serum helps lips retain their natural moisture, visibly smooth lip texture and reduce the appearance of lip wrinkles. One capsule has 2-3 uses in it and I just put it on right before bed! Your lips will never feel the same.

There are three ways to enter - do all three, and you'll get entered three times! There is no purchase necessary to win.

To enter:
  1. Find out which regimen is right for you with this 30-second perSKINality quiz and email yourself the results. You must email yourself the results to count 1 entry. (1 entry)
  2. Take the skin quiz (compete with emailing yourself the results), and tell me your results in the comments below. (3 entries)
  3. Share my giveaway on Facebook! (5 entries)
Winners will be announced this Friday, August 26, and is open to new and existing customers. 

Good luck!

Oh, hey.

Hey guys! It's me. I'm here. I'm alive!

You may—or likely may not—have noticed that I've abandoned my piece of the Internet as of late. You've read this post before. It's getting old. Or at least, it's getting old for me to write it.

The truth is, I can't do it all. I can't pretend anymore that I can.

I am working a full-time job and a part-time job. In fact, the former, my boss actually informed me that I'm currently doing the workload of 1.5 people. I am a full-time mom, and full-time wife. And if those things aren't enough, I'm also TRYING to relax every once in awhile, or to accomplish things that aren't on a computer, like getting our house ready to put on the market, purging our place, etc etc. Something's had to give, and sadly, it's been this blog.

That said. I miss writing. Writing has always, will always, be my outlet and in the past month I've been gone, I have noticed the absence of writing on my heart. I've been more stressed, more negative, more all things bad and I hate that.

So, I have no real point to this blog in particular, except that I needed to put some words on a page tonight. I'm a weird place right now where things in life are really awesome and at the same really stressful. But I wrote that and know in my heart that this too shall pass, and that while my problems are so small in comparison to others, they are still mine and I'm entitled to feel how I do.

This is all really vague, I realize. I'm sorry.

Anyway. I'm here, I'm alive, I'm fine and I just wanted to say hi.

Farrell Family Vacay: Arizona Recap

The summer kicked off Memorial Day weekend when we took a family vacation to Tucson, Arizona. Bryan and I always travel this weekend because our anniversary (May 28) always falls on this weekend. Our first anniversary, we went to Wine Country.  We've also hit Savannah, Puerto Rico and Key West, FL.

We were hesitant on whether or not to bring Liam, but ultimately decided it was going to be a blast as a family, so off we went. Liam was AMAZING on the airplane!

We stayed at the beautiful Westin Paloma, which I would recommend to anyone. It was a gorgeous property with multiple restaurants, nice rooms, and great pools that were good for families and kids. Plus they had a Kid's Club, where you could bring the kiddies for $12 so you could go to the adult pool or perhaps the gym, or just take a nap. It was amazing, and we wish we would have taken advantage more than we did!

We took a TON of pictures, and they are all packed in here. Enjoy!

We went to Zoo Nights, which was awesome and so much cooler and less packed than being there during the day! We got to feed giraffes, see elephants and Liam went on his first carousel ride!

We checked out the Air and Space Museum, and then hit up a local winery to celebrate our anniversary. (Which we didn't even realize it was our anniversary until about noon. We thought our anniversary was the next day!)

We went to the Desert Museum one night and walked around. More animals and lots of desert life!

Bryan and I got a day to ourselves to celebrate our anniversary properly! We utilized the Kid's Club at the hotel and had drinks by the adult pool. Then we had a friend's cousin come and hang out with Liam while we went to a FABULOUS wine tasting at a nearby resort. That night, our friends Katie and John stopped through on their way home to Yuma and it was so fun to see them and hang!

The next day we drove up to Mt. Lemming, which was a quaint little mountain town. We got lunch, ice cream and enjoyed the views!


It was one for the books and a hell of a way to celebrate five years with my hubby!
