Preparing for My Wedding with Vivo Per Lei

In preparation for my wedding, I’ve been on a pretty rigorous skin care regimen. I have iffy skin to begin with, so before my wedding I really wanted to make sure it’s the best it can possibly be. I’ve been using the Vivo Per Lei Collagen Collection for the past few weeks and I am LOVING it!

Due to lack of sleep and a bit of stress, I was dealing with bags under my eyes. I also realized that the skin under my eyes was starting to crease due to the way I’ve removed my make-up for so long (hint: don’t drag your skin so hard to remove your eyeliner! Dab at it instead). I know they say smile lines mean you smile a lot, which is all well and dandy, but I don’t think any of us WANT them to show!

To deal with all this, I wanted to add something to my skin care process. I went hunting for some new products that contained collagen to give my skin back the boost it needed.

When looking around, I found an entire collagen collection by Vivo Per Lei. Needless to say I was a bit excited. They had luxury skin care products that I could afford! I got the entire collagen collection! This includes the Collagen Contour Eye Cream, Collagen Booster Eye Serum, Collagen Rejuvenating Cream, and the Collagen Rejuvenating Mask.

I started using the eye cream daily, sometimes twice a day, along with the eye serum at the same time. I use the collagen mask once a week on weekends as a way to relax. It even came with a little applicator tool which was great because I hate having to use my hands for masks.

All of the products smell great and didn’t irritate my skin at all, which is saying something as I have very sensitive skin. I’m always nervous when trying new things for that very reason, and I was thrilled to see that not only was my skin not irritated, but after 2 weeks I was starting to see improvements!

I was so happy to see that the fine lines around my eyes seemed much less noticeable around the 2 week mark. I’ve also been using the collagen cream as my moisturizer, and I’ve noticed I don’t wake up with oily skin, which I was concerned with because sometimes cremes are too heavy for my face. My skin is softer and actually clearer than it was before, which that I’m not sure how it happened but I’m not complaining AT all.

If you’re trying to improve your skin-care line up, Vivo Per Lei offers a whole variety of skin care products from body butters and scrubs to facial masks and peels. They even have hair masks! They have a whole line of Dead Sea products that I’m going to be trying next.

If you’re looking for a boost for your skin for whatever reason, anti-aging, hydrating, exfoliating, you name it – check this brand out. I’m really impressed with the quality for the price of the products and can’t wait to try the next line.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

XO,

Dani

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
. 
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!
.

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.
.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at DaniThom.com via the link in my bio ❤️
