Now that the seasons have changed, so has my skin. My combination skin is now on the dryer side which means time for a new moisturizer. I wanted a lotion with SPF and antioxidants which got me thinking about Olay’s Regenerist. The UV Defense Regenerating lotion is a slightly thick moisturizer and it absorbs nicely into my skin. For areas where my skin is extra dry, I need a little extra lotion. Now regarding the anti-aging part, it’s really hard for me to tell whether this product is doing what it claims or whether it is just another marketing tactic I fell for. Overall, I really like this moisturizer, however I wish Olay made a cream version of this lotion with spf because I need all the moisture I can get during the fall/winter. ~ $19 @ Ulta; $25 @ most department stores
On a particularly hungry morning I’ll grab breakfast from Dunkin’ Donuts on my way to work. I know it’s a really bad habit that I don’t eat breakfast regularly, however in my defense I just can’t eat as soon as I wake up. One of my favorites at DD is the #6 – I order a medium Blueberry Coffee w/milk & sugar and an Egg White Veggie Flatbread… so yummy! ~ $5.20 @ Dunkin’ Donuts
Somewhere along 6th ave & 23rd street I spotted a macaron shop, you know how I can’t resist anything French? There must have been at least 20 different flavors helplessly staring up at me, and so I made
them myself happy and just bought 2. The lady at the register mentioned caramel fleur de sel to be their bestseller – I purchased 1 caramel and 1 chocolate. The chocolate macaron was very good, almost tasted like a super soft fudge brownie. And the caramel macaron, well, I sorta rolled my eyes back and nodded for a few seconds. The intensely good salted caramel in combination with the sweetness from the macaron tasted fresh, light, and airy. I say this with the utmost caution, but they may even be better, more tastier, than The Bouchon Bakery, and cheaper too, oh yes! ~ $2.50 each @ La Maison du Macaron, Chelsea – New York City
