I am restarting my Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide because my trailer, Taylor, is in Europe for a few months. I almost didn’t do it, but around 6pm I was ok you have to get up and do it, so I did, I then felt dead lol.
I decided to have an early night so I took my shower and did my skincare, and thought you guys might want to see what I used, please keep in mind this is not an every night routine, I try to change it a little each day as I feel that my skin needs a bit more attention than it did in my 20’s but I also don’t have huge wrinkles or anything like that. So what I tend to do is every other night I go a bit more full on and then on the other nights I usually just focus on hydration.
Intraceuticals Gentle Cleanser
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
Origins Plantscription Eye Cream
Sunday Riley Good Genes
Leanne Grace Miracle Beauty Oil+3 boosters
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+
rodan+fields (via @joneyland ) Redefine Lip Renewing Serum
I also used the LashBoost as well but forgot to put it and the eye cream in the picture.


Today Don and I were able to breathe a huge sigh of relief. For any of you that have followed my vlogs you’ll know that Charlie was having some kidney problems and his blood work was showing he had kidney disease. We went to the Radiologist and received what we consider good news, yes Charlie does have kidney disease, however it is in the earliest form it could possibly be in, and they are quite hopeful that with the treatment of probiotics he will successfully merge back into a normal range!!!!

All of you know I have a borderline obsession with with Charlie and Louis, and would be absolutely devastated if something was to happen to them, so knowing that he needs a simple probiotic to keep him healthy was a huge relief to us.


Lately I have been really missing the four seasons, Autumn is my favorite time of year it, you can feel change in the air, people are excited for Halloween, pumpkin picking, and corn mazes. People are making plans for thanksgiving, and we all start anxiously counting down the days until Christmas, and to top it all of my birthday (October 27th) is in Fall! Yes I truly believe Fall is the best time of year, but here in Hawaii we don’t experience that, we don’t get the season changes or the leaves falling, and its to hot to go to a pumpkin patch. So this year I started feeling sad, I feel disconnected from all the people I know and love, I miss the seasonal change and I miss being able to easily jump in the car and go explore a new area.

Then I walked outside to walk the dogs for their evening walk, and this was my view, and suddenly I remembered how lucky I am to call Hawaii home, I know that their are so many people out there that would love the opportunity to explore Hawaii and that I take it for granted having lived here so long, but I making an effort this “Fall” to get out more, and explore more.


This is my favorite picture of Charlie and Louis, it was also my Throwback Thursday post this week, because this picture was actually taken 3 years ago!!! Louis (the black & white one) was 9 months old in this picture and Charlie (the brown and white one) was a month shy of being 2 years old!! They are so cute, and truly are my everything, I know I’m that super weird dog lady that calls her dogs her “children” but I love them to pieces!


This has been a crazy week for me, I am in the process of wrapping up a HUGE work project for our real estate company, I’m starting to receive all the press releases for the items that are going to be in the 25 Days of Christmas Giveaway, I’m trying to start the process of changing my film room to a Fall themed room rather than Summer, I’m trying to set up an area for Christmas photos/videos of the press releases, and trying to do my normal day to day stuff. Because of all that I have a bed covered in boxes from companies rather than the new bedding, I have a floor covered in random bits of Fall and Christmas decor and I spilt fake snow all over my throw rug, and in that moment I thought “Yes! This is the perfect time to take a selfie!”, hahaha. I’m just glad that I have the rest of the weekend to wrap this up because I’m going to need it!


Today I spent the whole day organizing and cleaning, which sounds terrible, but I love doing that so this is my idea of a Saturday well spent lol. After I finished up I headed out to the park with the dogs, and I noticed the craziest thing about the sky, the left side of the picture (not actually pictured) is where the sun sets as thats West, but it was almost totally dark over there and in the East of the sky (the right side shown here) it was all lit up. I thought that was so weird, it was also eerily quiet for a Saturday and there was no wind, so to be honest it kinda creeped me out lol.


That is everything I got up to this week, you can get a Behind the Scenes look by following my Instagram as I use instaStories A LOT! I would love to hear what you got up to in the comments below, and don’t forget to add your Instagram username so we can all go follow you!
