So I went to a Mary Kay party on Friday for my dear friend Kira. I really enjoyed myself, and was surprised with the products. This consequently drove me to full-fledge research, because you me, I don’t do anything without research! While Mary Kay is a more long-standing name when it comes to skincare by direct sales, the names Rodan + Fields and Arbonne are equally “in” now.

I don’t have the money now to invest in full-program skincare, but one day I’d like to. And, I really want to know the difference between these brands! I wish someone could just give me a side-by-side comparison of them!

So, I decided to turn it over to you, internet friends. Do you use any of these? Sell any of these? Do you have preferences, thoughts, research, reviews? Please tell me! This is prime real estate for all you consultants to leave your sales pitch, and I’d love for the comments section to explode with everyone’s opinion!

Don’t limit yourself to Mary Kay vs. Rodan + Fields vs. Arbonne. Have a better skincare regiment you want to share? Let me know! I am open to anything right now!

Deals that are saving my hide lately...

🧒 For your kid - I found these printable activity packs for my toddler that are LIFESAVERS. My daughter literally wants to do these activities for hours every day. They are called the Ultimate Preschool Activity Bundles, and there are activities for every theme. Each activity has dozens of pages that are printable pages that teach number and letter recognition, colors, counting, patterns, and much more. These are my favorites:

🧹For your cleaning routine - I have started getting my cleaning products on Grove Collaborative - and they literally have changed my cleaning routine. Right now they are running their deal for my favorite Plastic-Free Cleaning Line for free, so make sure you check it out. Here are some tips to get the most out of this deal:

  • 🧹If you already have a Grove account, use a new email address to get this deal...and then cancel.
  • 🧹Make sure to set a calendar reminder to cancel the Grove VIP trial after a month. No harm no foul.
  • 🧹 Choose the Plastic-Free Hand Soap Set ($45 value) and get all everything for free.
  • 🧹Fill your cart with $20 worth of products you need anyway...

🌮 For Dinner - I know every mom in the world is talking about Hello Fresh - but I'm here to tell you that EveryPlate is better and cheaper than Hello Fresh. I have used it for years with my own pennies...and it really gives me life.

EveryPlate sends me dinner recipes and ingredients right to my door - but for less than $10/serving. Their meals are the same as other providers but HALF the price. It doesn't matter how many $90 off coupons other providers throw at you - this dinner box is still cheaper.

They use less packaging (yay saving the environment!) so they can charge less. They also offer fewer meals per week with a wider rotation. I have used them for over a year, and we have loved every single meal.

When I use EveryPlate, I can actually forget that I have to cook dinner. The ingredients are already in my fridge.

Stop meal planning and try EveryPlate this week with a $20 discount. Click here to get you first box at $2.49/serving!
