Add Spring Colors to Your Winter Wardrobe with Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi, Michigan

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.

Am I the only one who is sick and tired of the cold and snowy winter in Michigan this early? I know, January is not the worst, just wait for February. And then still more snow in March, and April. I remember one year it was even in early May. I swear winter here in Michigan lasts forever and it’s just plain ridiculous.

Well, enough complaints. 😉 What helps me win the battle against fighting the winter blues? The answers is “colors”! At the moment, I am really into pastel colors, especially this pink on the dress I am wearing. I am a very visual person. That means if my eyes are happy, my heart is happy too. 😉 This soft pink dress is making my heart very happy in this snowy season.

Below are just two looks from last two months I have scored there.

The New Year has definitely brought a lot of thoughts to my mind and I have been working on my new life plans for quite a while. You will read about it in my next post this Friday, so be sure to come back and check it out. Anyway, one thing I am drawn to is anything that makes me feel like I can embrace my identity as a woman. So for my January shopping at Twelve Oaks Mall, I was looking for something more feminine and fitted to my petite frame, but also polished. I have had great success at BCBG, White House and Black Market there. For this purpose, I know Anne Taylor is always a good place to go since they have a very good petite line.

I am pretty sure many of you who have worked in an office are very familiar with this brand. I have found so many great work pieces there. They are alway well made with just the right amount of femininity balanced with a professional vibe. Sure enough, I found this pink dress that fits me perfectly. I love shopping at Twelve Oaks Mall not just because I can find what I am looking for, but also because the great service at pretty much every store there.

How to Get Flawless Skin with At Home Microderm MD By Trophy Skin #2

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.

Back in November, I talked about the newest great find in my beauty tools, Microderm MD. You can read my initial experiences and thoughts about using it here:”How to Get Flawless Skin with At Home Microderm MD By Trophy skin #1“. Now, more than 6 weeks later, what am I thinking about the at home Microderm MD By Trophy Skin? Well, read on to find out. 😉

First, if you are not very familiar with Microderm MD, here is some info that you can start with. Microderm MD is an exfoliation system that is designed for home use and it claims to get rid of age spots, discoloration, sun damage, blemishes, uneven skin texture, uneven skin tone, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores.

My goal in using this tool was to get rid of my discoloration, uneven skin texture, fine lines, and enlarged pores. I really hate the huge pores on my nose and my forehead.

I have used Microderm MD consistently twice a week at home, except for the week when I was on my vacation for the New Year. I usually use it at night after showering before going to bed. I’m still loving the auto mood and just flowing along with the guidance of the machine moving from my forehead, to the eye area, cheeks, nose, around the month, neck and chest area. Since this machine takes the dead cells of skin off, all the good stuff I use regularly on my skin have been very easily absorbed. I usually put a mask on after using this machine and then night serum, night cream and a sleep mask. Yes, I use a lot of good stuff. 😉 If I use this machine during the day time or morning, which I have done a few times before a party or important meeting, I still use a mask, day serum, day cream and then sunblock. It is very important to me to protect my fresh layer of skin from sun damage.

As you can see from the before and after comparisons, I think I have almost reached all of my initial goals.

1. The discoloration is getting better
2. The uneven skin texture is better
3. The fine lines didn’t see many changes. I guess because I don’t really have much to begin with.
4. The enlarged pores. I am really happy with this result because I can clearly see the huge pores on my nose and my forehead are disappearing over the past few weeks.

So overall, this Microderm MD definitely does what it claims and I will continue to use it!

Below are some tips for how to best use this machine:

1. There is an automatic option that automatically adjusts the suction power to fit different parts of your face. Start with this and then you can switch to manual. Personally, I love the auto option and will still stick with it. 😉

2. Make sure you change the filter each time you use the machine as it can get a little crammed with gross dead skin after each session. You can see the photo below. I came back from my one week vacation and used it, a lot of dead skin!!!

3. When using it, try not to push it onto your face, but instead allow the suction to do the work. You’ll know what I mean when you use it. 😉

While there is no such thing as an overnight fix for better skin, I found Microderm MD to be extremely effective in treating a variety of skin conditions while not harming my skin or leaving it dry and irritated – making it my chosen at-home microdermabrasion machine!
