Dove Body Wash // Gold Bond Softening Lotion // EOS Lip Balm // LUSH Lip Scrub // Emergen-C //

Here in Texas it went from 75 to 34 in two days. TWO DAYS. The weather is just so wild and my health and skin suffer the consequences. My lips started to crack immediately, my skin began to dry up, and my nose started to run. So today I’m sharing some of my favorite winter skin and health must haves so you can make it through the season with me!

Dove Body Wash– I started using this body wash over a year ago and I am completely sold! It’s not too soapy, where you get out of the shower feeling like you still have soap on your skin. I also use this as a shaving cream. It leaves my legs feeling so soft and hydrated.

Gold Bond Softening Lotion– I’ve used this lotion for at least three years and I can’t find a better lotion out there. I’ve tried different brands but there’s nothing like some Gold Bond. There are usually two types of lotions: good smelling or leave you feeling like just soaked your hands in bacon grease. This is neither of those extremes! It not only makes my skin soft, but also heals my skin from all the winter dryness.

EOS Lip Balm– One of my favorite lip balms! One, I love the shape (judge me). But in all seriousness, I love how hydrating and healing this lip balm is. Like the Gold Bond Lotion, it’s not too greasy or just good smelling.

LUSH Lip ScrubThis stuff has saved my lips. I am not a huge fan of lip scrubs because they usually hurt more than help, in my opinion. This is totally different! LUSH Lip scrub is made out of sugar so it’s not too harsh. It peels off the dead skin and leaves your lips feeling super soft. Please and thank you!

Emergen-C– I can’t go without this stuff. I was sick a few months back and started drinking these little crack packets (totally kidding) each morning and I NEVER skip a morning. They keep me feeling energized and away from all the sickness. LOL. I’ve tried the orange flavor but the raspberry is my fav.

Let me know what your favorite winter health and skin must haves I need to try! I hope everyone has a great Sunday.

Always,

Hannah

Friday November 27th, 2015: Why I’m Over Black Friday And I Never Even Started

Life

thankful

I had a great thanksgiving filled with so much love and food and family and more food… Literally so much food. I vote we have thanksgiving food more than just once a year? Okay good thing we all agree. I spend Thanksgiving in the middle of nowhere. Look up Breckinridge, Texas and you will understand how middle of nowhere I’m talking. There’s a Wal-Mart and Tractor Supply in town but that’s about it. I’ve always grown up having Thanksgiving in the middle of nowhere so whenever people talked about Black Friday Shopping I just assumed that was for the crazies. Last year I came home early on Thanksgiving Day and stopped at Target to pick up some cookies that night and they wouldn’t even let me in! They told me I had to wait in the line, for one more hour nonetheless, to get my cookies. That was when my hatred for “Black Friday” began.

So after eating my pumpkin pie yesterday and plopping down on the couch for some good ole’ fashioned Facebook scrolling I was outraged by what I saw. These crazies on my timeline were posting pictures standing in line for Black Friday at like 4pm ON THURSDAY. Wait. You just posted 2 hours ago about how thankful you were for your family and ‘blessings’ but now you be posting about shopping for things, you don’t need, on THANKSGIVING?

Okay I just took a chill pill and now I’ll get back to some reasoning. I don’t know why Black Friday gets to me so much, I mean I hate it when people tell me how I can spend my money, but I just have a problem with people shopping for the sake of ‘it’s such a good deal.’

Two words that changed my life: Dave Ramsey.

I took his dumb course a few months back and it has me all types of messed up. I swore I was never eating out again (dramatic but I didn’t eat out for 2 months). I took off my nails (I miss them daily. RIP). I only go to Starbucks if I have a gift card (so now you know what to get me for Christmas 😉 ). I’ve set financial goals for myself (getting close to my goal for this year!) Since taking his class I’ve starting thinking more before I swipe my card.

Dave Ramsey ruined my life, in the best kind of way.

When we buy something just for the sake of ‘it was so cheap,’ or ‘it was on sale’ instead of REALLY needing it, we’re not being wise with our money. We were given our jobs and money from God. We don’t own it. We are stewards of that paycheck or job title. How we spend it SHOULD reflect God.

I was am still guilty for buying things for the sake of a good sale or pressured buy (I seriously can’t say no to Thin Mints or new lipstick. I just can’t). Heck this year I almost went to Wal-Mart to buy a new TV because it was so cheap. Then I heard Dave Ramsey’s voice in the back of my head, “Would you buy this in two days? Can you pay cash for it?” The answer would be no to both of those questions. Black Friday is a marketing tool, probably started by credit card companies, used to get to spend money you don’t have!

I really don’t know why I feel so angry towards Black Friday… But I do. I just think it’s so silly especially since we just spent a day claiming to be so thankful. It just doesn’t make any since to me…

I just want to be more thankful and content with what I have than what I do not have. Is that wrong of me?

If you don’t know me, you know I can out-shop just about anyone. I love a good sale. But you wont find me waiting outside Target on Thanksgiving. And I may just have to quietly slip off Instagram bc I may scream if I see another sale alert. Actually I will.

Always,

Hannah Moore

*in no way was I compensated for this post, I just love Dave Ramsey’s program that much.

**My goal was NOT to shame ANYONE for Black Friday shopping, I mean you do you, Boo Boo so please do not think that.

thankful and grateful

Shirt: J.Crew Factory (and on sale!) // Jeans: Topshop // Purse: Rebecca Minkoff // Necklace: Similar //  Boots (they don’t sell this exact color any longer but I’m linking a very similar color in the same style) // Watch, Similar, Similar // Lipstick: Tom Ford in ‘Violet Fatale’ // Sunglasses

As mentioned on my Instagram yesterday, plaid is a must have this fall! I love to dress it up with a cute necklace or even layer it with a chunky sweater. I picked this plaid shirt a few weeks back at J. Crew Factory (they have THE best sales!) I love the mix of red and gray.

Here’s the low down on these jeans: I always have a hard time finding good jeans that fit me (because I don’t have a backside, they always fall down!) I bought a pair of Jaime jeans from Topshop and I’m obsessed. They are $70 dollars, which is a good price for the quality and cut! So if you’re also a little flat on the backside you need to try out these jeans. You’ll be glad you won’t be hiking up your jeans all day. Trust me.

Make sure to follow me on Instagram! I’ve got something fun planned for my readers next week you won’t want to miss out on! 🙂 Happy Tuesday, loves!

In Christ,

Hannah

Thanksgiving Look # 3
Happy Thursday! When I’m having a rough week I can always count on some outfit inspo to lift my spirits. This outfit did the trick!
This plaid skirt probably brings me too much excitement. It’s so festive without being too much. I’m LOVING the lace up flats trend… I got some a few weeks back from Steve Madden (which are a great quality). Then I realized Old Navy had a pair for half the price… I don’t know how great the quality is but I do know I like that $29 dollar price tag! Hollaaa. Another trend I’m loving is the mini bag. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw my new pink mini bag from Henri Bendel… It. Is. Perfect.
As Always,
Hannah

Thanksgiving Look #2 2015
Here’s outfit inspo #2! This outfit is a little more relaxed and casual than yesterdays. Nothing is better than a black and white combo with some gold touches and a leopard clutch. Nothing. And I LOVE these Over The Knee boots… Ah they’re just so dreamy.
I hope everyone is having a great week so far! I’m looking forward to a few days off next week… My classes are coming to a close and all my projects seem to be due the same day. So ready to get this semester behind me. #overit.

Thanksgiving Outfit #1 2015

Thanksgiving is filled with so many great memories! Our whole family gets together and it involves my moms infamous corn casserole and my cousin Bailee’s cheesecake. Mmm I just love Thanksgiving! Here’s some outfit inspo for those of us who search for something cute and not too tight (that way we can eat un-godly amounts of dressing.) 😉

I’m loving the navy and burgundy trend this year! It’s so rich and classic. This shift dress has been sitting in my cart at Nordstrom for a few weeks and I think it’s finally time to just buy it already! It’s the perfect kind of dress for the crazy weather we have here in Texas. Throw on some gorg gold accessories, some classic riding boots, and hat… Cute and effortless. Happy Tuesday. 🙂

As Always,
Hannah

I’m sharing one of my favorite outfits yet! I’ve been on the search for a cape blazer for a few months and I stumbled across this one and on major sale at a boutique. #score. (I found some similar white capes so you can re-create this look easily.) I layered the blazer with a simple black tank top to create a chic look. Pulled back hair + my favorite black booties… Perfect outfit!

Also, this bracelet I’m wearing has been one of the best purchases I’ve ever made! It adds such a cute touch to my outfit. I mean that exposed stone *insert heart eye emoji.* Make sure to follow Molly on Instagram and if you’re interested in buying something, her contact information is on her Instagram. Her jewels make THE best gifts and it’s just that time of year. 🙂

I’m SO glad it’s Friday! I’m so excited about this weekend. I’m an “adult” leader (I use the word adult very loosely) for Northplace Students. We have our retreat this weekend and I’m so excited to spend time with the kids and disconnect for the weekend. Also, tomorrow is my mom’s birthday, I know I’m not going to be with her on her birthday… #worstdaughter. But I have a fun surprise for her next week, so don’t worry! My mom is my best friend and my favorite person. I’m so thankful I get to call her my mom. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Dress: Topshop (40% off!) // Shoes: Old (Can’t find this color anywhere) Similar (and 40% off!) // Sunglasses // Earrings // Watch, Similar, Similar //

Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing this amazing dress I picked up at Topshop a few months back for a wedding. I LOVE Topshop’s pieces. They offer high end cuts and quality for a great price. When I saw this dress I was drawn to the stripes and structure. Horizontal stripes can we tricky but the structure of this dress worked perfect with the stripes. For this shoot I paired this dress with a pair of colored heels for an unexpected pop of color.

Best thing about this dress? It’s on sale! #myfavoritewords

The wedding I wore this dress to I wore my favorite nude heels (THE best wedding shoes!) and a bright red lip (Color: Ruby Woo)
