The house is full of squeals and giggles from nieces and nephews roaming around the house. Hectic is the perfect word to describe it! We’ve been munching on burgers, fries, and ice cream galore – I’m not mad about it ūüėČ

I’m so happy about the warm summer heat. Crazy thing to be happy about right? If I’m being honest, it’s mostly because I wore my leggings so much during fall that they now have holes in them. I’m too lazy to replace them – so yay for summer shorts!¬†ūüėú

Are you happy about these warmer days? What are you up to this Memorial Day weekend? Tell me all bout it in the comments!

Gentle Skincare Routine For Sensitive Skin

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GentleHydration #CollectiveBias

Sensitive skin is not for the faint of heart. Finding a gentle skincare routine that is effective can be challenging! Skincare, oh skincare, why must you make my life so complicated. If you have read some of my previous posts on health and beauty routines, you’ll likely be familiar with my battle against acne prone skin. I started developing acne around six years ago – a battle that, at times, brought me to tears. You’ll see some leftover scarring on my cheeks in this post – no photoshopping here, girls! Finding a gentle skincare routine for my sensitive skin that won‚Äôt make it worse is important.

I use a simple but effective gentle skincare routine to keep my skin clear, nourished, and glowing! Read on for some easy skincare tips and be sure to share your clear skin secrets in the comments!

Sensitive skin is not for the faint of heart. Finding a gentle skincare routine that is effective can be challenging! Use this simple but effective skincare routine to keep your skin nourished and glowing!

 

3 Step Gentle Skincare Routine For Sensitive Skin
Cleanse

I always start my gentle skincare regimen by removing any excess dirt / oil from skin with a facial cleansing cloth. This way, my cleanser can really work its magic on my skin! I use a combination of a gentle cleanser with salicylic acid and a deep cleanser, massaged into the skin with a face brush.

The Process: Begin by massaging cleanser into skin with a face brush, in circular motions, for 30 seconds. Rinse well with warm water, then repeat cleansing a second time in the same manner. Rinse thoroughly with warm water, then finish cold water. Pat face dry gently with a wash cloth.

Nourish

The next step in my gentle skincare routine is probably my favorite! I apply chilled pure aloe gel to my skin with a cotton swab. Aloe has amazingly nourishing and regenerative benefits not only for your skin, but your overall health. Make sure that you use pure aloe gel and not juice!

The Process: Take out 1 tablespoon of chilled aloe and place in a bowl. Apply aloe gel in gentle circular motions over entire face with a clean cotton swab. Let aloe gel air dry. Your skin may feel tight.

Tip: Apply aloe gel overnight or under makeup for even skin and a healthy glow!

Moisturize

Moisturizing skin properly is one of the most important parts of any skincare routine! The right moisturizer should provide lasting moisture to your skin, without clogging pores or causing any unnecessary irritations – often caused my fragrances. I love the Cetaphil¬ģ Daily Hydrating Face Lotion and the Cetaphil¬ģ Moisturizing Cream for this step. They are my moisturizers of choice for this third, and very important step in any skincare routine!

The Process: Apply a nickel size amount of Cetaphil¬ģ Daily Hydrating Face Lotion to entire face in gentle circular motion. Allow lotion to fully absorb into skin – about 3 minutes. Apply makeup as normal. Then, to keep you body moisturized, apply Cetaphil¬ģ Moisturizing Cream to your entire body!

¬†I have been so impressed with the Cetaphil¬ģ Moisturizing Cream. It is perfect for sensitive and dry skin; providing lasting moisture all day long! If you need a gentle, hydrating moisturizer, Cetaphil¬ģ Moisturizing Cream is the ideal choice. I shop at Target for my Cetaphil¬ģ products [ of which there are many great skincare options! ] and it is the best place to get anything that you need from the Cetaphil¬ģ skincare collection. Everything that you need from their line, you’ll find in the skincare aisle!

 Be Consistent

The best way to keep your skin in tip-top shape is to remain consistent with your gentle skincare routine. Always take your makeup off at the end of the day, cleanse thoroughly, nourish, and then moisturize! Your clearer, calmer skin will thank you with a beautiful healthy glow!

5 Ways To Be More Intentional and Productive With Your Time

Learning to evaluate where my time is going and making plans to be more intentional and strategic with how I spend it has been so important and helpful as I work to grow my business, and even cultivate my relationships.

For most of us, discipline doesn’t come naturally. It is something that we must train ourselves to. We must put practices into place to help keep us on track! I have implemented 5 practices in my life to keep me focused and productively on task and today I am sharing those practices with you!

Read on for 5 practices to help keep you on tack and be more intentional with your time.

The Nosh Life Blog: 5 Ways To Be More Intentional and Productive With Your Time.The Nosh Life Blog: 5 Ways To Be More Intentional and Productive With Your Time.The Nosh Life Blog: 5 Ways To Be More Intentional and Productive With Your Time.

Prioritize Your Tasks and Designate Time For Them.

If you’re like me then you love lists. There is something so satisfying about crossing an item off of a list. When it comes to time management though, a list on its own simply¬†won’t cut it.

Prioritize your tasks and designate time for them by making a plan with time slots and categories for each task that you need to accomplish for the day, week, or month. Scheduling time for what we need to accomplish is very effective and helps reduce wasted time! Mapping out what tasks I need to accomplish, and setting aside specific time slots to knock out those tasks has helped me so much in both my personal life and entrepreneur work. Make that workflow schedule, girl!

Nourish Your Creativity

Intentionality can be difficult to cultivate. Happily though, the more we feed ourselves the right things that nourish our creativity and support our minds, the more we desire those things! This makes intentionality easy over time. It is easy to sit down and surf social media or binge on our favorite Netflix show – those things bog us down with negativity and non-constructive mindsets.

Rather than letting those things pull you into non-productivity, focus your attention on something that refreshes your mind: reading, listening to educational podcasts, learning something new etc. These types of activities nourish our creativity and productivity  by stimulating our mind Рkeeping us more alert, and thoughtful with our time.

5 Ways To Be More Intentional and Productive With Your Time.5 Ways To Be More Intentional and Productive With Your Time.5 Ways To Be More Intentional and Productive With Your Time.5 Ways To Be More Intentional and Productive With Your Time.

Communicate Effectively

Effective communication is essential to being more intentional with our time. As a blogger/photographer I have learned the importance of communicating effectively. I am constantly bombarded with emails/inquires and they each need a reply of some sort.

Wherever you are able, create canned response templates for emails and messages. This is not appropriate for every response, but, where it is appropriate utilize it! You will free yourself up to respond in a more in depth way to messages that require it, and save yourself time for other necessary tasks or just a moment of peacefulness to reset.

The other side of effective communication is more personal. For me, getting into arguments or allowing myself to be exposed to gossip through group texts and Facebook messages is so damaging to my productivity. Remove those outlets from your life. Gracefully remove yourself from a text thread, Facebook message, or other avenue that is inputting negativity into your life. Communication that is unnecessarily negative harms our outlook and increases non-productivity. Find a comfortable balance of effectively communicating by getting rid of the negative inputs Рboth professionally and personally.

Bite The Bullet

It’s not always fun, but, one of the best ways to be more productive with your time is to bite the bullet on the tasks that are not your favorite. Many of us like to leave our most dreaded tasks till last [ I can procrastinate with the best of them. ]. That, unfortunately, is often distracting from the many other tasks that we have to accomplish because those dreaded tasks hang over our head. Knock those dreaded tasks out and move on, babes! You will feel such a sense of relief.

Block Off Free Time

This is SO important! We need free time, girls. I would be a frazzled mess if I did not get to have a little fun sometimes. We working girls are busy. We have responsibilities and passions that we work hard to accomplish. Blocking off free time to do something that lets you turn off the workflow is necessary! Let your hair down, dance around to your favorite music, and eat your favorite food! Whatever makes your feel free and relaxed.

Life can be hectic and overwhelming.. but it’s a wildly beautiful ride! These five practices¬†have helped me be more intentional and productive in my day to day, and I hope that they help you as well. Making time for yourself, nourishing your mind, kicking procrastination to curb, communicating effectively, and having a little fun are fantastic ways to be more intentional with our time and make the most of each day!

Kitchen Essentials: Outfitting Your First Kitchen With Calphalon

Hey babes! I hope you are having a wonderful Monday. A whole new week is here which means I am that much closer to marrying the love of my life! [ I have a count down and I’m not ashamed of it! ]

When Austin and I first got engaged I wasted no time making our registry. I spent hours choosing each pretty item for my soon to be new kitchen and felt quite satisfied with the finished result. Once my engagement bliss settled down I realized that some kitchen essentials were missing. Namely, the right cookware and bakeware! ¬†I adore cooking, and baking especially [ proof, proof, and more proof ūüėȬ†]. Outfitting our kitchen with the right tools for creating the best dinners and treats is so important to me and Austin.¬†Cooking together is one our favorite activities to do as a couple! It is important to us that we have the highest quality cookware and bakeware on our wedding registry so¬†we can create the best possible results in our kitchen.

the-essentials-of-setting-up-your-first-kitchen-with-calphalon-wedding-registry

Creating a wedding registry is.. stressful. Am I the only one that completely stressed over that?! There are so many little things that are easy to forget to put on the registry. The bigger more essential items can be difficult to narrow down. When it comes to cooking fantastic meals, you need to start with fantastic cookware РPlain and simple. Starting with quality bakeware and cookware is key to coxing out the most delicious flavors from your food. I chose to outfit my first kitchen with Calphalon because I know that it provides me with the highest quality tools, that are expertly crafted and designed, to bring the best out of every meal, which is so important for me and Austin as we look to have the best cookware!

the-essentials-of-setting-up-your-first-kitchen-with-calphalon-wedding-registrythe-essentials-of-setting-up-your-first-kitchen-with-calphalon-wedding-registry

So what should be on your wedding registry? I have narrowed down the most essential cookeware and bakeware item that you need in your kitchen! These pieces are a great base to build off of. Many of these items can be added to your wedding registry in sets – making your life that much easier!

Essential Cookware

First things first: the cookware [ because you can’t have dessert without having dinner first.. or can you? ]. Great results in the kitchen start with quality¬†cooking tools. Selecting quality cookware is the ultimate way to build a kitchen collection that will encourage time together and inspire great tastes!

A starter kitchen, or any kitchen for that matter, should have these essential cookware items:

  • 1 8qt stock pot
  • 1 5qt dutch oven
  • 1 large¬†sauce pan
  • 1 medium sauce pan
  • 1 12in omelette pan
  • 1 10in omelette pan

These basic pots and pans will become your lifeline in the kitchen. Every delectable dish will start in one of them and come together in chef quality dinners for you and your partner! The Calphalon Contemporary Nonstick 12-piece Cookware Set is a great starter set for to put on your wedding registry.

Essential Bakeware

I am a sugar girl!¬†Desserts are my jam. I’ve never met a baked good that I didn’t like! Baking is a precise art; it takes thought and care to bake a cake well. The right ingredients and the right pan can produce some insanely good desserts! Creating the best treats begins with the tools you use to make them.

Every kitchen should be outfitted with these essential bakeware items:

  • 2 round cake pans
  • 1 square baking pan
  • 1 muffin pan
  • 1 large baking sheet
  • 1 small baking sheet
  • cooling rack

You can make life in the kitchen even easier if you opt for Calphalon’s Signature Nonstick Bakeware 6-Piece Set, and skip greasing the pan before you bake.

Good Cutlery

I absolutely cannot survive in the kitchen without a good set of cutlery. Knife cuts matter, babes! I started cooking when I was sixteen, and one of the first things that I learned how to do was knife cuts. Food just looks so much better when it’s cut properly. Remember: We eat with our eyes first!

Every kitchen should have these essential cutlery items:

  • 8″ chef’s knife
  • 6″ santoku knife
  • 1 paring knife
  • 6″ serrated knife
  • set of 4 steak knives
  • kitchen shears
  • self sharpening knife block

Trying to prepare/cut food with dull blades is a [ no pun intended ] recipe¬†for disaster. Make sure you add a self sharpening knife block to your wedding registry to keep those blades super sharp! The¬†Calphalon Precision‚ĄĘ 10-Piece Space-Saving Self-Sharpening Knife Block Set is the perfect option!

Setting up your first kitchen can be a breeze РCalphalon products are available for you to add to your registry at many fine retailers, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Crate & Barrel, Macy’s and Williams-Sonoma. You can add your favorite pieces to your wedding registry or add the collection set that suits your needs! You can also learn more about Calphalon product offerings by visiting Calphalon.com or by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @Calphalon!

I am so excited to use my Calphalon cookware and bakeware to make many delicious recipes for years to come! I have already broken both sets in which the most delicious coffee infused scratch made granola. It is crazy good! The recipe is coming your way very soon!

This shop has been compensated by Colective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MyJergensGlow #CollectiveBias

Hey babes! I hope your week is off to a great start. It’s officially spring [ hello sunshine and hot temps ] and we all know what that means – tank tops, and shorts, and swimsuits, oh my! Spring and summer can do number on our confidence. There are so many filtered and curated false images out there to make us question whether we are enough, and start to feel a serious lack of confidence.

Today I’m sharing my top 5 ways to renew your confidence this spring! These are my personal aids in fighting off the temptation to doubt my own value, and boost my confidence.

Read on for some tips and tricks to help you renew your confidence this spring, and make room for more joy!

Start Your Morning Strong

Feeling healthy and energetic is an instant confidence booster. Start your morning strong with a healthy breakfast. Make a smoothie bowl, drink some water, or munch on some greens! When our bodies are nourished properly we feel a heck of a lot better! Am I right or am I right!?One of my favorite ways to get a boost in the morning is to make a mixed berry and spinach smoothie with orange, lemon, and tart cherry juice or a delicious coffee infused smoothie!

Get A Natural Glow ( Without Baking In The Sun )

Natural glowing skin is a great confidence booster for spring! I have always had very fair skin, and worked to protect it from the damaging effects of the sun. The easiest way to get that natural sun kissed glow, without exposing your skin to potential fine lines and sun damage, is to use a sunless tanner. We all know how easy it is to start to look like an oompa loompa.. rolled in cheeto dust.
So, finding the right sunless tanner is key! Especially if you’re very fair. My favorite tried and true sunless tanner is the JERGENS¬ģ¬†Natural Glow¬ģ Wet Skin Moisturizer and¬†Natural Glow¬ģ Instant Sun¬ģ Sunless Tanning Mousse. They are a fair skinned girls dream!

The¬†Natural Glow¬ģ Wet Skin Moisturizer and¬†Natural Glow¬ģ Instant Sun¬ģ Sunless Tanning Mousse are my go-to for adding just a touch of color to my skin for spring!¬†You can gradually glow or instantly tan with these products and I love that. I personally opt for the gradual glow so I don’t shock my friends. Ha!

 

My Instant Sun¬ģ¬†Glowing Skin Routine:

Cleanse & Exfoliate skin
Apply Sunless Tanner
Let tanner dry completely
Enjoy perfectly glowing skin!

How simple is that! These sunless tanners are so easy to use. For the most natural looking color, be sure to exfoliate your skin. It is the key to success!The Wet Skin Moisturizer is  just as easy to use. Simply apply on wet skin immediately after showing!

My Natural Glow¬ģ Wet Skin Moisturizer Routine:

Shower and exfoliate skin
Towel dry as normal – this is key to achieving a streak free glow
Apply Wet Skin Moisturizer as you would any other moisturizer
Enjoy a subtle, gradual glow!

Using both the¬†Natural Glow¬ģ Wet Skin Moisturizer and¬†Natural Glow¬ģ Instant Sun¬ģ Sunless Tanning Mousse¬†in conjunction with one another helps maintain a hassle free natural glow.

Walmart carries all of the¬†JERGENS¬ģ¬†Natural Glow¬ģ products, so I just pop over there whenever I’m feeling a little too pale ūüėČ

Stay Off Of Social Media In The Morning

I know what you’re thinking: That’s not possible, Jenna. I have content to share to grow my brand!

I hear you, girl. There is plenty of time to work on your social media game or peruse your favorite feeds. First thing in the morning is not one of those times. How we start our day determines our outlook. When we lack confidence it puts a damper on our happiness, and that is reflected in content that we share! Comparison is such an ugly thing, and it is all too easy to fall into. If the first thing that we are feeding on in the morning is curated social content then we do ourselves a disservice.Start the day out with a healthy dose of positivity and stay off of social media for at least the first hour. It will have a huge impact on your outlook for the day, your confidence, and your feelings of self worth, and value

Treat Yourself Just A Little

Make a wise indulgence and enjoy it every once in a while. I don’t know about you, but, there is nothing in this world that makes me quite so grumpy as depriving myself. That’s no way to live! When we have the proper ratio between work and play, health and indulgence we feel more confident because there is nothing to out of balance.Self control is important, yes, but, so is allowing yourself some wiggle room to enjoy the little things – Whatever that may be for you.

Own Your Flaws

Flaws, everybody has them and nobody wants them! Take a note from Chrissy Teigen and be proud of your stretch marks [ or any other so called flaw ]. They tell a story, and there is nothing ugly about that! I have “stretchies” on my thighs, much like Chrissy, and you know what? They’re beautiful. Acknowledge your flaws, whatever they may be, and own them. Your flaws might be different from mine, but, we both have them and they are apart of what makes us.. us. Stop comparing yourself to someone else’s filtered life and live yours with joy!

One Pot Spicy Chicken Sweet Potato and Asparagus Hash

Hey babes! How happy are you that it’s officially spring!? I, for one, am most excited for sunny poolside days, driving with the top down, and easy one pot meals [ y’all know I love to eat! ]. A lot of one pot recipes are more suited for fall/winter, but this spicy chicken sweet potato and asparagus hash is perfect for these slightly warmer temps. It is light yet robust with flavor, and wonderfully filling.

It’s been a while since I really dug into creating a recipe. With all of the renovations taking place at the condo, Austin and I have been crazy busy – my kitchen time has been zero. It felt so good to get back in the kitchen and dream up a recipe. This hash is “like mind-blowingly delicious“.. or so I’m told ūüėČ

This hash is light and robust with flavor. Spicy chicken melds deliciously with the natural sweetness of the potatoes, and the snap of the asparagus adds a wonderfully fresh feel to each bite.
