Dear Santa (Day 1)


So, I know I promised I would do better about blog posts and I have not been very
committed to that promise. I have found that I am in a apathetic funk right now...
and I think I've been there for a while. There are many things in my life right now that I just
don't care much about. I have a whatever, I don't care kind of attitude. It's not like
I am miserable or unhappy or anything like that, but just very unmotivated and I am going to
have to find a way to change that soon. I need some change in a few areas of my life and I need
to be committed to make that happen!

So, there you have a quick mini update on me.

I thought I would do several posts in December about gift ideas that involve things
that I personally would love to receive for Christmas!

I traveled to Mexico over Thanksgiving with my Mom and Nana to celebrate my mom turning
50 this month. It's a fun girly trip that we have been planning for over a year now. We
went to Playa del Carmen and stayed at The Royal. It was such a lovely luxurious
trip. Beautiful!

The last day we were there I had a facial. When you think of a facial don't
the words relaxing, therapeutic, and tranquil come to mind? Well, think again if
you sign up for a cleansing facial. For an hour long appointment I can honestly say
that half of that time was spent in pain. Picking blackheads and impurities out of my skin!
OUCH!!! It hurt so bad at one point I was about to grab her pretty little hand out of my
face and say THAT'S ENOUGH! I'M DONE! IF YOU DON'T MAKE THIS SOMEWHAT
RELAXING I'M OUT OF HERE! But, of course I didn't. I'm sweet... just sat there
and took it like a woman and said... "I'm fine." ha.

So, she used these products on me that you probably have heard of if you have ever
had spa treatment. The brand is called Pevonia. She recommended several products
to me; a cleanser and cream that would help my skintype. She explained to me that
I am oily basically in my Tzone, but a bit dry around my cheeks.

So, the line she recommended to me was to help prevent blackheads as well as fight and
treat them.

LOVE to try this skincare line!

Happy Holidays!!

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
