As many of you know, I’ve been struggling with dry skin and have been searching for the perfect solution to treat it for good. Recently I discovered the new Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer and was so excited to use it and see how it would help my skin. Today I am so excited to share with you a quick update and what I learned.

It’s been a few weeks since I first started using this moisturizer and can happily say, with daily use, my dry skin is gone! To use it effectively, I made sure to always apply it to my wet skin right after a shower or bath before I toweled off. It glides on the skin so smooth. It’s a thick cream and feels so luxurious on the skin. I could tell right away that it was going to work wonders for my combatting my dry skin.
No more, would I look down at my legs or arms and see red, cracked, flaky skin. My skin is so different from when I was younger and finding the new Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer has become the perfect solution for treating my uncooperative dry skin.


Living in Utah and Arizona where the air is so dry was a main factor in my dry skin. Not to mention stress, hot showers and harsh soaps my skin was in need of some serious tender, love, and care. If you are someone who suffers from dry skin then I’m sure you can relate to how uncomfortable it can be to have dry skin. The worst is when someone else would notice the dry skin around my elbows and knees or my dry, red knuckles. Now I make a daily, conscious effort to take better care of my skin. I am so happy that the solution only takes a few extra minutes every day!

In case you haven’t heard of the new, Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer, it’s a new wet skin formula that lays the foundation for better moisturizer. After a bath or shower, since your skin cells expand, it provides an easy way for Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer to soak in and penetrate into just showered skin before it’s dried off.

The skin’s natural moisture barrier is maintained by ceramides which are building blocks necessary for healthy skin. Skin that is dry and damaged have lost their ceramides so it’s important to put them back into the skin. Since Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer contains an advanced ceramide complex it can help penetrate the skin to the source of the dryness. This helps replenish the skin’s ceramide levels and repair the moisture barrier. With new ceramides and Hydra Therapy dry skin can be targeted in a unique and effective way.

Maintaining my skin, ensuring it stays healthy and hydrated will always be a high priority for me. I could tell after the first use that my skin felt softer and more smooth. I can honestly say that I no longer feel embarrassed or self-conscious of my skin and love how hydrated it feels all day long. I’ve made Curel Hydra Therapy a daily part of my skincare routine and love how healthy my skin looks again!

If you’ve tried a ton of different moisturizers and haven’t found one that you love then I highly recommend trying Curel Hydra Therapy. It’s helped me heal my dry skin and I know it’ll work for you too!

My computer’s about to die and I’m sitting here trying to figure out what to type. I never know what to say and always want to say something about the weather. I literally have to stop myself every.single.time. Instead, here are five random facts about me (:

  1. I’m a thrill-seeker; Cliff jumping, sky diving, motorcycles, you name it, I’m in.
  2. I’m a minimalist at heart. I’d throw everything and anything away if I could. I have to stop myself because I know having certain things is socially acceptable, but I really dislike having “things” simply to fill space.
  3. I love the smell of a campfire. My friends would always complain their clothes reeked after a bonfire but I relished the scent.
  4. I constantly want to be on a trip or planning a trip. The minute we get home from any vacation I always ask AJ where we’re going next.
  5. I’ve visited 12 countries, and lived in Japan for 6 years. I never learned to speak Japanese fluently and really wish I had because it’s the question people always ask once I say I lived there.

It’s officially Summer here in Arizona! The high was 98 today and we took the cover off the pool yesterday. I absolutely love it. Moving from Mississippi, this place feels like a vacation location. My mom was telling me today how sad she’ll be when we move because it always looks so beautiful in pictures on snapchat. She’s right and I think I need to convince AJ to find his next job on the west coast because I don’t think I could handle moving anywhere else.

Speaking of which, I was so excited to wear this top because I thought it was so cute and casual. Needless to say, I was getting so hot while snapping these pictures that I had to change once we were done. The material is a lot thicker than you’d expect! It wear so comfortably though, so if you’re still experiencing the transition into warmer weather then I’d definitely recommend it.

Prom is coming up and I’ve had so many requests for hair tutorials! I always post updos so I wanted to change things up and post something new. Last week I shared a simple half up style that I think would be so pretty for prom and today’s tutorial is this sideswept style! What other hairstyles would you love to see? I feel like I ask that a lot but I get so many good ideas whenever I do! Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy

Braided Side Swept Prom Hairstyle Supplies:

Braided Side Swept Prom Hairstyle Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Start by parting the hair on the right side though you could part it on the left if you prefer that more.
  • Step 2 / Now divide off a section of hair at the middle of the back of the head and clip down the hair on both sides. We’re creating three braids so you just want to make sure to keep the hair separated.
  • Step 3 / At this point I went ahead and clipped in two hair extension wefts to add a bit of extra length and thickness to this hairstyle. You can still achieve this style without them so you can skip this step if you prefer.
  • Step 4 / Now divide off a section of hair at the crown and split this piece into three sections.
  • Step 5 / Begin a french braid by crossing the side strands over the middle strand while adding in hair on both sides.
  • Step 6 / Continue the french braid down the back of the head and stop bringing in new hair when it lines up with the ears.
  • Step 7 / Then braid a few more stitches of the braid and slide a bobby pin over the end so it doesn’t come loose.
  • Step 8 / Now create another french braid with the left section of hair. Add in new hair until it reaches the ear. Then braid a little further down and slide a bobby pin over the end.
  • Step 9 / Now create a third french braid down the right side of the head. Curve the braid around the nape of the neck, following under the middle braid.

Instructions continued:

  • Step 10 / Once hair is brought in from the left side, stop adding in new hair and just braid a few more stitches of the braid. Then slide a bobby pin over the end.
  • Step 11 / Now take the right braid and lay it over the middle braid.
  • Step 12 / Pin it in place with several bobby pins. You can use as many as you need for this because it’s important to make sure it feels nice and tight so it doesn’t fall loose.
  • Step 13 / Then take the left braid and lay it over the middle braid. Create a gap in the right braid and pull the left braid through the gap.
  • Step 14 / Then slide in a bobby pin so the braid stays in place.
  • Step 15 / Next take a small section of hair and wrap it around all of the hair.
  • Step 16 / Wrap a clear elastic band over all of the hair, including the ends of the wrapped piece. This is what will hold the wrapped piece in place as well as the rest of the hair so the braids don’t unravel.
  • Step 17 / Then gently loosen the wrapped piece so it’s softer and less obvious where it’s been tied.
  • Step 18 / Spray the style with a medium-hold hairspray and smooth down any flyaways.
