Hey heyyyyyy. I have a smallish window of time today so I'm gonna keep this post realsimple and basic and boring for you. We are taking off this afternoon to watch my brother and his band shoot a music video which should be super fun(ner than this post). I always want to take the kids to see him perform but all the shows are at, like, nighttime and I always want to go have fun without my children soooo anyway you're understanding my point, right? The point is that they never see their uncle playing music.
The band's new record is coming out next week and they are shooting a video for one of the songs today and so I am taking the three big kids to go watch. Maybe I'll even charge my phone enough to take photos for a post about it! Maybe...
Anyway, wow what a long winded intro as to why I'm writing a quickie post.
If that's any indication of how the rest of this is going to go... mea culpa.
THE POINT: I am aging, you guys. Like, for real. Part of me feels like I am aging beyond the point at which a typical 33 year old is aged. 7 babies? Maybe?
The three most obvious issues are 1. grey hairs (which I have embraced... so far) 2. wrinkly hands (have yet to figure this out) and 3. wrinkles, age spots, dull skin aka MY ENTIRE FACE. My first awakening came as I read an article written by the founder of some super high end skin care line. She mentioned the importance of caring for your décolleté and I had absolutely NO IDEA what a décolleté was and it horrified me. There is a part of me that needs to be cared for and I don't even know what it's called? Go ahead, google it.
At this point I had only been washing my face with water and cleansing my décolleté with nothing and so one of my postpartum care goals was figure this shit out.
Naturally I went straight to GOOP because who better to ask how to care for your aging skin than Gwynnie and the people she employs? I researched some of the top recommendations that were somewhere near the realm of affordable and picked three products- a cleanser, moisturizer for nighttime and a vitamin C serum for day. NOTE: the only reason I bought the Vit C serum was because the opening sentence of the article that referenced it read something like "anyone with skin knows they MUST use vit c serum and if not they are a total f'ing idiot, etc etc." or something like that. The first thing in my cart was that damn serum...
ANYWAY WAYWARD STORY SHORT
I have only been using this holy trinity for maybe 3.5 weeks and I noticed a difference after the first week or so! My skin looks brighter and softer and more glowy and let me tell you a little glowy skin goes a long way for a girl who can't button her pants. Of course I spent way more than I'd like but I'm only using a teensy bit of each product and I know they will last a long time. Plus, results! Hello! HELLO?!?!!
Anyway, there is my post on that. I know I turn to strangers on the internet for advice on all my biggest purchases (hence, GOOP) so I figure you do, too. If you're looking for a new skin care regiment, or any skin care regiment, try these. Your face and décolleté will thank you. Harr harrrrr.

I am scared to ask this question for fear of more purchases but... anything essential that I'm missing??
