My life according to my iphone

I take pictures of just about everything... and sometimes the most random things. Even I look back sometimes and think why on earth did I take a picture of that? But, the things people take pictures of really say a lot about who a person is and what they like. I thought I'd share "my life according to my iphone" inspired by my lovely friend Michelle "Mupnorth"   
Welcome to my world!
 
Random sign I thought was cute and one of my favorite new highlighters (Laura Mercier Rose Rendezvous)
Infamous for taking pictures of cosmetics/perfumes so I'll remember the name. Loved this wallpaper!:)
At the mall today! Bought the RIGHT color in the Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Foundation and tried on Chanel "Gabrielle" lipstick. I think me likes. 
SO NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS GIFT, clearly! :)

New wicker basket but it's not home without some toys and cereal scattered around! New vacuums! I am a vacuuming freak. 
I love Tory Burch. Just playing around at Nordstroms. I think I love the black one.

Cure your dry winter hands! Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve!


Winter has just begun and so far it has not been too kind to my hands. I started cleaning my house "green" using a vinegar and alcohol... great great for cleaning your house but killer on your hands. 

My hands were chapped and so red so I went searching in my house for a cream to soothe my poor hands but didn't expect to find such an unknown gem sitting in my husbands drawer. 
A while back I got a gift set of Kiehl's products and the majority of them I gave to my husband. 

This is one of the best hand creams I've ever tried. Ever. I'm normally not a fan of hand creams because they are either too greasy or the scent burns my sad hands. The cream I found here was 2.5 oz and I seriously went through it in 2 weeks. I seriously put it on like every 20 minutes. I think I because obsessed with the feeling of "healing" and the softness my hands felt.  I ordered the 5.0oz from Nordstroms and it just came yesterday. My hands are so happy again!

The scent is faint but it's neither bad nor good. It kind of smells like Eucalyptus.





Here is what Kiehl's says about it:
Formulated for the driest, most active hands, this heavy-duty moisture treatment is a thick, rich formula offering all-day care and protection. Our blend of select ingredients allows skin to actually draw and absorb water from the air, forming a "glove-like" protective barrier against moisture loss. This formula, which contains a blend of botanical oils as well as natural wax derived from Olive Oil, further soothes, moisturizes and conditions skin. This most effective preparation helps protect against and repair the appearance of severe dryness caused by heavy industrial work, manual labor, neglect, or exposure to harsh elements.

I highly, highly recommend this cream if you have dry winter hands like I did. It's a simple, basic, no frills (ie: scent, fancy bottle, etc) but it WORKS and good!

Another cream I've been trying is the Eucerin Aquaphor healing ointment but I'm not the biggest fan of it for my hands. Way too greasy but it works amazing on my dry lips... heals them overnight. 

What are your favorite hand creams for dry hands? I'd love to know!
