New Serums From Kate Somerville

Kate Somerville is one of my all-time, hands-down go-to skin care lines. (The Anti-Bac Clearing Lotion for acne and +Retinol Vita C Power Serum are must-haves)

Well — herald the trumpets! — they have a new line of serums called Kx Active Concentrates that are designed to firm, moisturize and downplay your fine lines, all without irritation (which is the bit that caught my eye).

Kate recommends layering two drops (because the serums are super concentrated) of the Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum to clean your skin in the morning and again at night, and following up with the Deep Tissue Repair Cream.

Why is this so satisfying?!

In other news…

Incidentally, I “need” all this stuff.

OK, so I watch Emily Noel’s videos all the time because I love how down-to-earth she is, and she seems fun to hang out with, but for some reason watching this video of home-related soaps and cleaners, sunscreens, furniture and kids’ toys she loves made me especially want to BUY ALL THE THINGS.

The Dial pear soap is totally on my Target list, along with the Aveeno Baby Sunscreen (several other friends have also recommended it lately… I’m thinking it might be an unsung hero?).

The new “Noon Rule.”


I loooove coffee, but I’ve come to realize that I can’t drink it in the afternoon; otherwise, I just can’t fall sleep at night. You probably don’t remember this, but a while back I was having a lot of insomnia. Well, I mentioned it to a friend I work out with at HIIT class (she also happens to be a nurse), and she said, “Karen, you shouldn’t drink coffee (even decaf) after noon.”

And ya know what? I’ve starting doing just that, and it’s been a whole new world for me. Now I just fall into bed, and I’m out like a light…within 15 minutes.

That’s good for me!

I still crave java after lunch something fierce, but I’d rather be able to sleep! I still allow myself to have as much as I want before lunch, so it works out fine.

Does you do this, too? Or are you one of those lucky people like my friend Cindy who can literally drink a strong cup of coffee after dinner and fall asleep within 10 minutes? SO JELLY.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
