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

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!
  • “There is beauty in simplicity”
My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
.
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
