My Nightly Skincare Routine Plus A Giveaway


Well, my friends, things have been a little complicated at Polarbelle HQ lately!!  During this extended illness, my computer kinda died as well as my back up computer.  I've been unable to load and edit pictures for nearly two months!!!  I just received a new computer today and am trying to get the bugs out.  Hopefully everything will be smooth sailing soon.

In the meantime, I've filmed my nighttime skincare routine and have it here for you today as well as an associated giveaway.  Due to size and weight, the giveaway is restricted to US and Canadian shipping addresses only.   Some of the items I use are great for everyone for age defensive skincare and a few are formulated especially for over 40 skin.  If you like sport healthy glowy skin, this routine could be for you.

Just in time for chilly fall weather, Never Say Die Beauty got two lightweight but warm pairs of anklets to wear with skirts or with jeans. The Berkshire Legs Opaque Dots Anklets are so cute, and the Cozy Hose are perfect for boots weather!

I love it when a beloved YouTuber has an opportunity to collaborate with a beloved brand! YouTuber Emily Noel collaborated with Makeup Revolution to create this travel-friendy Emily Edit The Needs Palette. Find out if YOU need it!

Stacie from The Makeup Obsessed Mom recently found an interesting makeup brush while browsing online. You can see this ergonomically designed brush over on her blog.

Coffee is a way of life for many people, and in honor of International Coffee Day, Jen from Laugh, Love, Contour had to create a nail art look to celebrate the occasion. Best of all, the design is simple and can be recreated easily with just a little stamping know-how and a few extra minutes!

Viseart Libertine & Ciate London GRWM Plus Lottie London Giveaway

Next week is my 8th blogoversary.  I was hoping to celebrate with you big time, but I haven't been able to work very much, or do anything really.  Short explanation is my adrenal glands failed and the doctors have no answers for me.  I *think* they're healing from the incident that *might* be responsible.  We're looking for another doctor right now.   I was waiting for answers before I talked about it, and last night, I thought about how my favorite blogs would disappear for awhile and I'd be worried about them, and hope they'd be back, so I thought I owed you an explanation for this months long virtual absence.....anyway, it's just been a situation where I couldn't get to the computer or have any brain power to write.  I probably won't say much of anything else until I really do get answers but I think I'm getting better.  My heart for this blog and my channel is to bring fun, encouragement and knowledge to you.  The world has too much seriousness already.  So let's get that giveaway going!!

I'm launching my brand new video doing a Get Ready With Me featuring the brand new Viseart Libertine palette and using some of my favorite Ciate London products with it.  Ciate and Lottie London were so kind to provide me with the lip products that I'm featuring plus an additional group to give away!!  I hope you'll enjoy the video and enter to win.
