CR Travels: Malibu

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

CR Travels: Malibu  

Two weeks ago, Stan and I headed to Malibu for 5 days of fun with friends to celebrate a friends birthday. It was an amazing trip to say the least. From the beaches and restaurants, to the shopping…the West coast is one of my favorite places to visit because there is so much to do!

We spent time outdoors hiking and paddle boarding, as well as exploring the city and eating such great food. I love the culture of California and can't wait until I go back. Until then, enjoy a few pics from our trip.

Last minute packing the night before. Let's be real, every girl needs her options!
Of course I could never go on an adventure without my Discovery Collection kit. TSA approved and super convenient to add in your carry-on.
Hello Malibu!
EATS
Last week I told you about Mastro's Ocean Front, so this week I wanted to be sure and mention Malibu Farm. Located at the end of the Malibu Pier, this place serves organic, fresh, REAL food. The food was excellent, service exceptional, and the views were amazing. I highly recommend visiting Malibu Farm if you find yourself in the area.
EXPLORE
We had such a great time doing things outdoors. The hiking trails were brutal, but the views were worth it!
CELEBRATE
As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, we went with our friends to celebrate a birthday. This is me with my dear friend Lisa who we celebrated all week! 

Happy Birthday, Lisa! 

It was a very memorable, relaxing trip and I can't wait until my next adventure! Of course I'll be sure to share it with all of you. What are some of your favorite places to visit in California? Tell me below.

Colleen's Favorite Things: August Edition

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

Happy August! I just got back from a few days in Malibu with Stan and our friends. We had such a great time on the West Coast and can't wait to go back. Next week I will give you the scoop on Malibu--what we did, where we went, and where I think you should go, but this week I want to share with you some of my current fav's!  
1. One of my favorite Instagram accounts right now is OracleFoxBlog. I love her style and am a huge fan of her photography skills. She also has a beautiful blog with lots of pretty things to look at. You can follow her Instagram by clicking above, or click here to see her blog.
 
2. I recently purchased these Stuart Weitzman shoes and I can't wait to wear them when I go out this weekend with Stan! I bought them in the color pecan, but they also come in black.
3. I definitely have my eye on these Carina Midi Rings by Gorjana. So fun, especially for summer!
4. Mastros Ocean Club Malibu. I know I am saving my Malibu post for next week, but I love this place so much that I couldn't wait! The food, service and views are just to die for. If you ever go to Malibu you have to go visit Mastros..trust me.

5. Have you heard of the app Waze? If not, download it. Waze is a community based navigation app that allows you to share what's happening on the road with others. From the price of gas at certain locations, sudden accidents on the road, and even road hazards, Waze helps save you money and time on the road. Plus it's FREE.  :)
6. I guess I wouldn't have created products I wasn't crazy about....but I love the effects of the Dual Enzyme Polish. When you have a couple extra minutes at night, apply like a mask allowing the papaya & pineapple enzymes work their magic to remove dead skin cells that make our skin look dull. And when skin is smooth and glowing our makeup goes on like a dream!! And for the nights you want to just hit the hay....use a small amount of scrub to quickly exfoliate... gently massaging the product in circular motions, then rinse away clean. Don't forget your neck and chest!
What are some things you are loving right now? I'd love to hear, tell me below.

Colleen's Morning Skincare Routine

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

I love mornings.

It’s the beginning of a new day, with new opportunities and adventures to be had. One of the first things I do is get my skin ready for the day. My routine is all about cleansing, brightening and protecting my skin.

So what do I use?

First, I splash my face and neck with water and apply my Balancing Gel Cleanser. I use by massaging a small amount in a circular motion. I love this cleanser because it thoroughly cleanses my skin, leaving it ultra smooth and revitalized, while also protecting it. It’s also a great prep for my next treatment, the Vitamin C Treatment Complex.

This treatment is great because it works to improve your natural radiance and clarity, while also defending against environmental aggressors, like the sun! To use I simply apply a small amount into my hand and gently massage an even layer over my face and neck.

The next thing I use is my Complete Eye Cream. I love this eye cream because it not only addresses the signs of fine lines, but also reduces the appearance of under-eye darkness and restores elasticity. I use my ring finger to apply around my eye area in a gentle patting motion.

After the Complete Eye Cream, I apply the Sheer Renewal Cream. This can be used at morning or night and provides continuous hydration. It’s oil-free and has a powder finish, which leaves my skin feeling light and breathable! It’s often said to be a great make-up primer too. Apply to a cleansed face, neck and décolleté.

Last but most certainly not least, I apply my Daily Defense SPF 25. It is so important to protect your skin from the sun and it’s harmful rays. The sun, over time, can cause wrinkles, freckles and blemishes. It’s oil-free, absorbs quickly and is ultra-lightweight, leaving my skin with a soft matte finish.

That’s it! After I apply my make-up and grab some coffee, I'm ready to head out for the day, knowing my skin is protected and taken care of, for whatever lies ahead.

There was such a high request for my morning skincare routine, that I made it a Beauty Bundle! You can shop all these products, at a valued price, here: Morning Refresh Bundle.

I hope you enjoy it as much I do.

Instagram Giveaway: End of Day Ritual Bundle

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

Beauty Bundles  are officially here and I want to tell you about my current favorite…the End of Day Ritual bundle.

We created the End of Day Ritual Bundle to show you one of my favorite skincare routines! This bundle sets you up with all you need to keep your skin healthy, nourished and moisturized after a long day.

So what’s inside?

1. Radiant Cleansing Balm. This is the very first thing I use as it not only washes ALL of my make-up off, but removes impurities and clears congested pores! With the addition of the Muslin Clothe, I finish feeling like I just had a mini-facial…

2. Dual Enzyme Polish. I use this exfoliate 1-2 times a week. Apply this to your face in a circular motion to activate the microspheres; this will leave your skin feeling refined and radiant. It smells delicious too!

3. Retinol Treatment Complex.  This cream helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles, clear pores and improve dull skin. Apply a thin, even layer to your face and neck. The results? A brighter looking complexion.

4. Extreme Recovery Cream. This is the ultimate moisturizer for dehydrated skin. It fights the signs of fine lines and wrinkles while evening out skin tone and texture. Use by gently massaging onto your face and neck, preferably over one of my treatment complexes.

5. Last but certainly not least, Face Oil No9.  Combining 9 transformative oils, my face oil provides an intense moisture boost that deeply nourishes your skin.  Just apply 3-4 drops after cleansing, and gently massage onto face, neck and décolleté.

We are kicking off this weekend a little early with a fun giveaway! Head on over to the Colleen Rothschild Instagram page to enter to win my End of Day Ritual bundle for you AND a friend!

Good luck!
