Dry Skin Care

Thursday, January 31, 2013

The weather here has been all over the place. One day it's super cold and the next it's super warm. Crazy weather mixed with naturally dry skin has become a huge issue for me. I've been noticing that I have to reapply my moisturizer many times throughout the day, which is pretty frustrating. I've been doing everything that I can to keep my skin protected and moisturized, which includes using super rich skin care products. 

My top dry skin care products are:

Lemon Lip Creme

Soap and Glory Hand Food

Philosophy Hope in a Jar

Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion

How do you deal with dry skin?

A little slow...

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I'd like to apologize for things being super slow around The Preppy Scientist. As I type this, I am sitting in front of a pile of papers begging to be filed and put away. I proclaim today to be an official break until tomorrow. 

All my best.

Vogue - When I'm feeling glamorous 

Seventeen - When I'm feeling fun

Lucky - W'hen I need inspiration

Canadian Living - When I feel like a grown up

Marths Stewart Living - When I want to plan for the future

Just Say Yes!

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Sometimes having such a busy schedule doesn't allow me to have very much fun. I resolved this year to be more open to friendships in my life - and I've found that just saying yes to spending time with other people is a huge step. I am guilty of finding every excuse to say no when I am invited out somewhere. But lately, I have been put in a position where I need to say yes and need to be more social. 


Because I am someone who tries to stay true to her word, simply saying yes means that I can't back out of an event! It's been so nice getting to know new people and opening myself up to new experiences! I really hope to stick to this resolution and can't wait to see what fun things lay ahead! 

I hope you are keeping up with your resolutions!

I really love watching YouTube makeup videos even though I hardly wear any makeup. I watch a lot of 'Elle and Blair Fowler' videos and I always hear them talking about their shop GlitzyGlam, so I decided to check it out. They have a lot of cute items in the online store and almost everything can be personalized/monogrammed! 

I just placed an order with Glitzy Glam and here are some personal favourites:

Pad holder

Chevron keychain

Waffle Weave Head Bands

Spa wraps

Monogrammed tumbler
