So I've been trying some different things as far as my beauty routine/regimin goes leading up to the wedding:

*I tried the murad facial that's special for acne prone skin from massage envy, hoping that it would be something that I could do a few times before the wedding. I was so relaxed and it felt great. But my skin broke out SO bad! It took me two weeks to get my skin back to normal after. I have had a couple break outs after a facial before, but nothing like that! Never again! (Ironic isn't it? A facial that is made for acne prone skin- my freakin luck)

*I bought the Mia 2 Clarisonic facial cleansing brush. I use it every day and sometimes even twice a day! It's wonderful. I have been using the sensitive brush head. I had a coupon to sephora and purchased the deep pore brush head today so we shall see how that goes. The Mia cleans really well and is waterproof so I can take it in the shower which is nice. I like using different cleansers with it to switch it up. While at sephora today I got the philosophy cleanser called purity which has wonderful reviews. So I'm hoping it'll work well in combination with the Mia. 

*i started nutrisystem. I can't remember if I blogged about it yet or not. In a nutshell: I have found my favorite foods that are delicious, it helps me budget my monthly food costs, and it's dummy proof! I am scared of the scale (I'm trying to be better about it now) so I can't give you an exact answer of how much I have lost but I know it's at least 8 pounds in the past month or so, and I have noticed the difference in how my clothing has been fitting. So I'm happy with that for now. 

*I have not made it to the gym as much as I want to...with work, grad school, thirty one, and wedding stuff, I just haven't found a good balance of time to fit it in. But I'm posting this as I'm on the cybex at the gym right now :) so I guess I'm slowly getting better! 

I'm really hoping these habits last longer than the wedding, of course. I had started the legwork for a lot of them before I was even engaged, but of course the wedding gave me a little push. 

I have a fair amount of updates for my wedding to-dos that I will save for another post. 

Have a great night!
