ANEW Perspective


Hey guys! Thanks again for all the sweet birthday wishes this weekend! You guys really are the best!! I can’t believe I hit the big 3-0 but it’s really given me a new attitude about life. For some reason I was kind of stressed about hitting my 30’s but then I came to this epiphany about life, and I’m really excited for all the things to come!

For one, I realized that some of the best memories are the ones you step outside your comfort zone. It’s been on my bucket list for a long time to go diving with sharks and parasailing. Our whole family is obsessed with shark week but we are all pretty scared of them so I was pretty excited to go all out and dive in head first (literally 😉 on our trip.

Between all the adventures we had planned and the downtime we spent between the pool and beach, my beauty routine was basically out the window. (Who has time for that on vacation, right? 😉 But I just started using the ANEW Vitale collection and love it. It helps to improve clarity and minimize dullness to keep you looking fully-rested (despite the jet-lag) so I didn’t have to worry as much about makeup. The day moisturizer also has SPF 25 – a must for the many hours we spent outside.

I hope you guys are having a great week!

XX, Christine

    Parasailing looks SOOO FUN! It’s a huge bummer my husband is deathly afraid of heights 🙁 I mean, he gets queasy just looking down from the 2nd level of the mall… lol.
    My favorite daily moisturizer with SPF is from Murad – It’s not a proper start to my morning routine without it!

    Looks like you and your family had an amazing trip! I went parasailing once and it seemed like such a scary experience before I did it but once you’re up in the sky you realize how beautiful everything is and that it’s not bad at all!

    Happy birthday! Welcome to the 30’s club! I’m going to be 32 this year and I think it’s a refreshing decade to be in you know who you are and you know what you want. I’m an all natural/essential oil kinda girl but you’ve inspired me to try this Avon collection 🙂
