Back to share something I am passionate about —taking care of your skin.

I have had the pleasure of working with @awakenaestheticsnj, and I cannot say enough amazing things about them.

@ellenlauletta {real life magician, people} understands how important it is for me to maintain my youthful appearance, at almost 39 years old.

It helps me feel confident. And as someone who has struggled with confidence + self esteem since, well, forever, she really has no idea how much she has helped me feel good about myself.

I just had my 2nd microneedling with PRP treatment + I could not be happier with the results.

Take a peek at this reel I put together to get a glimpse into the procedure.

Pop your questions down below 👇🏻 and @ellenlauletta will answer them for you!

Happy November everyone. I’m back.

I took a bit of time away from my personal IG page. I was sort of wondering what its purpose was anymore.

Fashion?
Beauty?
Motherhood?
Skincare?
Self care?

I just didn’t have much to say. I guess.

And speaking of purpose, I felt like I was searching for mine —besides being a mommy, of course.

So I have been focused on my photography 📸 business. Which has been so much fun. I’ve been meeting so many amazing families, couples, and children.

I have also been busy with my new role as the social media manager for the coolest place in my town —actually down the street —@theshoppesatmedfordmill. It’s full of 40+ unique vendors. You know how much I love shopping and supporting small businesses, so this was perfect for me.

If you’re in the South Jersey area, it’s a must see.

I probably won’t be posting as much as usual on my personal page —so follow me on my @savvyjoyphotography and @theshoppesatmedfordmill pages & say hi 👋.

This is true life.

First cup of coffee ☕️ at 4pm because, life.

Clothes everywhere on the floor because, life.

But I did manage to get dressed for our anniversary dinner 🎉

Here’s to another 7.

Back to blonde, baby.

It’s been a long couple weeks, so treating myself to new hair is exactly what I needed.

Thanks @alexaguarnieri_hair for always slaying the blonde game.

Proud of this girl.

Kindergarten has been a big change, a challenging transition, with lots of tears .. but I am so proud of how far she has come in only a few weeks.

Well, I took the plunge and got microneedling with PRP.

@ellenlauletta is the best South Jersey injector —she made me feel comfortable & explained the entire process to me. It was painless. Fast. And the results have been incredible.

My skin has been smooth, my makeup looks so much better, and I have noticed my wrinkles are less noticeable.

I told her about my insecurities with the wrinkles & sunspots on my face, so she paid extra close attention to those areas.

I will be getting another round in about a month, and can’t wait to show you the results after two treatments!

Take a peek at my video to see the procedure & my results at the end.

Someone loves their new @minkycouture blanket. It is huge, so comfortable and soft, and can probably fit a family of 5 under it.

Talk about the perfect movie 🎥 night blanket.

This one may be my favorite because of its color —it’s called Urban Polar Berry, a purple-y shade, and I may be stealing it from Savvy when she’s not looking.

{ #ad} I have a 45% off coupon for y’all to use — FERLA45. Happy minky shopping.

•• Oh and for every adult blanket purchased, a mini is donated to a NICU. 🍼 🙏 ••

Blowing up your feed today with all things @boxycharm because as a huge beauty lover, I think 💭 you should know about these products.

I can honestly say I never would have bought any of them if it weren’t for @boxycharm. I mean, I never even heard of some of the brands before 🧐 .

That’s☝️reason I love Boxy. It introduces me to so many amazing items for a fraction of what it would cost if I were to buy the products on their own.

Here’s what I got in September’s Premium Box - 6 items for only $39.99.

💫 @fentybeauty Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette {MSRP: $25}

💫 @tartecosmetics Sea Glowtion Skin Perfector {MSRP: $32}

💫 @herbivorebotanicals Blue Tansy Reaurfacing Clarity Masj {MSRP: $48}

💫 @beautybakeriemakeup Milk & Honey Highlighting Palette {MSRP: $38}

💫 @complexculturebeauty Sonic T-Bar Facial Massager {$58}

💫 @heyhoney Trick & Treat Berry Lip Balm with Natural Tint {MSRP: $23}

Thanks @boxycharm - this box may be one of my favorites to date.

Oh —and guess what? The Premium Box is now a stand-alone box! Subscribers no longer need to have the Base subscription to get the Premium Boxes.

How amazing is that?

We officially have a Kindergartner ✏️ 

Yesterday was a long day 😴.

Savannah didn’t get home until close to 4 —when she normally got home from PreK at 1.

It is going to be an adjustment, but once she gets the hang of a longer day, she will be awesome 👏.

She’s home from school today because she’s not feeling too well 😷—a mix of allergies + a cold.

So we are hoping to rest up + head back to school 🏫 tomorrow.
