#TheRoundUp / #Faves of January 2017


Ugh, sorry about the lack of posts, but I've been taking this brief break to really sit down and make sure I get the best content for you. I've got myself sorted now, so I'll keep it to that. Content will be much better from here on out. So without further ado, let's get into my January '17 Faves!

#WeeklyRecap / 06-52

Apologies on the absence, but after coming back from Arizona, I needed a break. I was tired and just worn out. Especially since I just went straight back to work. However, I'm excited to get back to blogging and posts will resume on Monday. It won't be #ManiMonday, but it will be my monthly favorites.

As far as my trip to Arizona, it was fun! I enjoyed every day there regardless being a zombie from lack of sleep. I definitely had a lot of time to reflect in the airport and will be going hard into all of my passions.

While I can't speak on this personally, I've seen the effect it has had on my husband and what he shares with the kids has greatly expanded their mind. Can't wait until we get our Europe trip going!

#WeeklyRecap / 04-52

The week has been pretty decent if you take out everything from the news. I've began making some health changes and started working out while I have face masks on. Additionally, Phil and I have been planning our meals better. And our last collection of comics have been pretty good reads. I've caught up on my usual reads and added in Gamora and Hulk. But add in the news and its starting to get unsettling.

I've shared a lot about the Women's March from last Saturday, but it is something that is very important to me. In case you didn't get a chance to watch the live feed from the march in Washington, here it is. Some amazing speeches were given.

#WorthIt? / Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel

Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel

TGIF! Hope you're all doing well this Friday morning. I've been doing these #WorthIt? posts in lieu of something general like #Review, but essentially I'm doing the same thing, but then asking the question on whether you should drop the cash for it.

Today's case in point is the Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel,* (1oz/$38) a quote, "...Uniquely textured beauty gel that targets breakouts, roughness, and the look of visible pores for clearer, smoother, and more beautiful skin." according to Sephora. I was lucky enough to receive this from the company and have not only emptied one jar, but just began (like three days ago), a new jar. So is that a sign of the awesomeness of the product? Well, let's talk about the claims first, take a peek at the ingredients and then delve more into my experience with the product. After all that is done, we'll ask the age old question, was it really worth it?

So, back to those claims, also according the description on Sephora,  the  product "...rapidly repairs breakouts, roughness, and dry patches while minimizing the appearance of visible pores. This multitasking formula leaves skin feeling supple and smooth, while its dewy concentrated gel texture moisturizes and adheres well to trouble areas. Rescue skin with this rebalancing formula that gives skin a smoother, more beautiful appearance. " The formula does not contain phthalates either. Lastly, because we all know we love clinical studies, according to Shiseido, "80% felt skin's roughness improved, 89% felt areas with skin troubles become softer and more supple and 80% felt areas with skin troubles became smoother." That's a good amount of above average felt their skin being softer. But did it?

Before we get to that, let's take a look at the ingredients: (as listed on CosDNA):
