MiriEffect Skincare Review

Let me first summarize this review as this; Big things come in small packages.

Last Tuesday I was able to have some mom time off to enjoy the MiriEffect Signature Facial with Onyi, the founder and #girlboss of MiriEffect Skincare.  Located in the Gallery of Salons, which is literally a space filled of individually owned mini shops, from hairdressers, nail salons, and masseuses.  Essentially your one stop shop for your beauty needs while supporting some small business owners.  Upon entering the room is quaint and really it's all the room you need to get comfortable, enjoy a glass of sparkling water, and get ready for some relaxing time.

With Christmas coming up, I'm sure many of you are scrambling for something unique to give to that fella in your life who already has everything. Or maybe that year end bonus is coming up and you're looking to treat yourself. Well, woodencha know, Jord makes just the thing- a wooden watch! I was fortunate to recently receive one of these unique watches which stands out just a little bit more from the usual leather or metal bands prevalent everywhere.

So it's not news that I'm now a new mom, but now that I am I was excited to join Esther from Cute Head Kids and Zadok Jewelers on a photoshoot with other blogger moms Monica from Classy and Fabulous, and Jenny from Tidbits to learn about some new jewelry available at Zadok Jewelers made for especially with moms in mind.  From charms and meaningful pendants by Heather B. Moore, to stacked rings from Jackie Cohen's My Story Collection, or initial charms by Roberto Coin.  
All the while noshing on treats from both Three Brothers Bakery and The Foodie Chef.

Vinnie and I (along with Brittney from Classy & Fabulous) recently made our way to Paris. "Recently," we visited in May.
