5 Common Skincare Mistakes My Clients Are Making

5 Common skincare mistakes! 

While perusing a Facebook beauty group the other day. I found myself reading through a thread of New Years Resolutions. To my surprise, most of the resolutions were about skincare! And I was like, hey, that’s what I do as an esthetician. So I figured, why not create a list of the 5 most common skincare blunders I come across with my clients. 

I am a licensed esthetician in the State of Arizona. I am not a doctor and am unable to diagnose. 

Before we get into the list. Know that it is ok if you are making any of these faux pas. This is why we have this SMP community. To educate and share tips and  tricks with one another. 

Additionally, I could probably go into a 30 minute lecture on each of these 5 topics. If you’re curious to hear about any of these more in depth please let me know in the comment section down below.

What I ACTUALLY Bought on Black Friday

Do I miss the days of waking up at 5am to tackle the crowds to score some deals? 


I couldn't be more grateful for online shopping than I am this week. 

I was able to do a little online browsing in between helping bake Thanksgiving dinner. Then again Friday morning once the gallons of pumpkin pie I ate settled down. 

I am curious to hear what you picked up or are still hunting for a great deal on. 

Below are hyper affiliate links products I ACTUALLY purchased and am not just merely suggesting. Some for the kiddos and some beauty. I was thinking ... how fun would it be to film a Black Friday makeup look ?! 

* For an ALL inclusive list, including the products that aren't linked below because the stores don't participate in the Reward Style platform, check out my new OBSESSEDWITH.IT page for direct links :

Thank you for clicking through these pics and placing an order. I do earn a commission if you do so.

What Im getting my kids for Christmas | Holiday Gift Guide for Kids

With Black Friday deals starting as early as tomorrow ( Monday Nov 25th ) I figured it was about time I got my shopping list and ideas out to you. 

Last year I shared what I was shopping for and you seemed to find it helpful. This year with the kiddos getting to the awkward pre-teen years. I am finding it a bit difficult to pick gifts for them. Sooooo lets get creative. Here are a few ideas I came up with. If you have any inspirations please feel free to comment below and share them with the SMP community.

* I would also like to add that we went and saw Frozen II and now all Sophia wants is Elsa ... all the things LOL !!! 

 ** Pictures below are affiliate linked products **

Share your Holiday wish list / shopping list and ideas below.  

Literally a copy and pasted shopping list from the notes section of my phone.

You are not seeing double. This is my second Winter FabFitFun unboxing. If you haven't already, be sure to watch the first episode so that this one will make more sense. I definitely go into more detail in my first video than this one. Plus there is a giveaway going on with the first one too !! 

FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box with full-size fashion, beauty, wellness and lifestyle products.  Each box is $49.99 and has a value of over $200-$400 each season. With your membership you will have access to add on sales, Edit sales and FFFTV. Which has recipes, life advice and fitness videos. 
SAVE $10 on your first FabFitFun box by using my referral code: SPARKLE 

I am super pumped about this box because I was able to choose the customization options for myself. There are a few items, that came in the PR box that I didn't choose for my box, that I am now kicking myself for not adding them as back ups. But such is life. New products will be here for Spring soon enough and I do keep up with my ipsy subscriptions too. So I have a lot of new products coming in on the regular. Be sure to keep an eye out for the November ipsy TRIPLE unboxing going up very shortly. 

Are you getting this seasons box? Is it on your wish list for Christmas? Speaking of which, I will be posting TWO Holiday Gift Guide videos early next week.
