Hydrating CC Cream: Perfect for a Spring Day

Disclosure: I received a sample to review. All opinions are my own. Powered by BrandBacker.

I have really jumped on the BB and CC bandwagon. One of the things I've learned is that every brand is different. I have several different brands and wear them depending on the day and the skin issue I am attending that day.

Thanks to Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream, I have found the perfect spring day makeup. 

On spring days, I want a lighter weight makeup, but one that still has a decent amount of coverage because I don't have the tan yet to make my darker spots blend in. The Studio Gear CC Cream has tiny specks of color that allows it to blend in perfectly with my skin. It is also SPF 20, perfect for those first days in the sun. 

My favorite thing about Studio Gear CC Cream is that it is light weight- it feels no different than wearing a moisturizer. It is also not a full coverage makeup- no fear of looking like a porcelain doll. It almost looks like you are wearing no makeup- it just makes your skin look more even. I am officially in love with this product! 

One other thing I love about this CC cream is that it can cover tough spots by just adding another layer to that area. That's how I covered the sun burn scar under my eye.

Gentle Spring Cleaning With Pampers

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

I'm a planner to the core, this even includes Spring cleaning. By the time New Year's Day is over, I'm ready for Spring, and to me that is all about getting clean, organized, and fresh. When I write out my calendar for the year, I go ahead and schedule when I plan to Spring Clean. This gives me plenty of time to decide which projects I want to tackle and gather the supplies needed.

Now, with two little ones, Spring Cleaning is a little different. I have to be especially careful with cleaners and with my time. Since I have an infant and a 3 year old that is into everything, this dominates the majority of my time.

Last weekend, my husband and I jumped on cleaning and got the basics done. This is so great because I can now focus on those projects I wanted to tackle without worrying about getting the actual deep cleaning done. Time to organize the closets!!!

One of my main focuses with cleaning this year was using more gentle cleaners, while maintaining the quality of clean that I like. I have been making all natural cleaners at home, but have a few store bought things that I insist on cleaning with.

Pampers Gentle is one of those things that I have to have. Now only do they clean the kids faces and wee bottoms, but I can clean the highchair and know that if the princess licks it, she's okay. They are also great for out and about if I need to clean a toy or pacifier. Thanks to Pampers, some lucky moms are also getting the gift of gentle clean.

I received an amazing package that is going to a local mom support group. This organization is great for those moms that may not have a lot of day to day support and especially new and expectant moms that just need someone to talk to. With the $50 AmEx gift card that was also sent to me, I will purchase more packages of Pampers Gentle. When moms go to a group, she receives a pack of diapers and wipes, as well as "mom bucks" to use in the gift shop of donated baby items. When I finish the closets, I'll drop off the outgrown baby clothes for them to put in the gift shop.

I think the moms in need will really benefit from these items and I'm so happy to participate in this gentle clean promotion and be able to share a gift with new moms.

Thanks to Pampers and Double Duty Divas, you get a chance to win the same package, which includes the following:

Cleaning Caddy

Swiffer Wet Jet

Pampers Gentle Wipes

A Billion Entrepreneurs - Let's Get On TV

I wrote before about the project A Billion Entrepreneurs and the importance of the project. I let you know how strongly I feel about this project and I wanted to share the latest news with you.


Jimmy, the founder of A Billion Entrepreneurs, has started a 14 day crusade to land himself on late night TV. This may not make sense to some, but as an entrepreneur myself, I get it. Talk shows are a huge opportunity for a business. Make that a late night talk show, and you have shot to the moon. I can only imagine sitting there with Craig Furguson or Jay Leno (those were the days) and chatting about my latest projects.

That would most likely be my career high. If I were trying to raise money to complete my project, it would be even better. There is no other platform that will get you the ears and eyes of late night television. I want to do my part to spread the word about this amazing project, so I want to share this crusade with you. Help Jimmy get on Late Night TV.

Here is the introduction of the 14 day campaign.

Watch all of A Billion Entrepreneur's videos on their YouTube channel.

Good Luck Jimmy!
