Get that Glow: Arbonne RE9 Advanced Brightening Collection

One of the many crazy things happening in 3rd trimester is your skin. Sometimes it can get more dry, more oily and more sensitive. I started using the collection at 32 weeks and now at 33 weeks, I have already noticed a remarkable difference. I had the best experience so far with Arbonne’s new collection. It has kept my face protected against the desert winds and cold dry air of Las Vegas.  The cleanser and the night cream has been a God send and I just love the Sakura scent 🙂 Arbonne has amazing products and this collection is no exception. Put this on your shopping list and get ready to experience the Arbonne RE9 Advanced Brightening Collection.

The RE9 Advanced Brightening collection by Arbonne was developed to address the specific needs of dull, sallow, uneven skin tone and dark spots. Infused with clean brightening ingredients, the vegan products improve the appearance of skin glow, radiance, luminosity, and skin tone, as well as minimizing the look of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles with twice-daily consistent use.

Six high-performing products make up the collection, including a cleansing foam, lightweight serum and SPF 15 mineral sunscreen. Featuring a proprietary Sakura Bright Complex, created with ascorbyl glucoside, a form of stabilized vitamin C, cherry blossom extract and birch leaf extract. Botanical-based emulsifiers, surfactants and moisturizers also support the delicate skin barrier by increasing hydration.

New Initiative Turns Gluttony into a Source of Power In Las Vegas

Environmental Entrepreneur Explains How “The Green Machine” Initiative Will Help Bring Energy Independence to Las Vegas
Las Vegas is the land of overindulgence and gluttony. In addition to consuming a record-breaking amount of energy (Nevada spends $700 million per year on out-of-state fossil fuels to power the flashing lights, gigantic billboards, and air conditioned casinos,) the city also has the largest landfill in America! With over 42 million tourists per day, one casino group alone, generates over 800 tons of daily food waste.

But according to environmental entrepreneur, Rosalie Bingham, if handled correctly, this gluttony and waste may actually help the city reach energy independence. 

Bingham is the founder of “The Green Machine,” an environmental initiative to increase renewable energy in Las Vegas by converting organic waste into power and water.

This forward-thinking solution uses the current hundreds of tons of daily food waste (that is now dumped into Nevada landfills,) and instead, diverts it to an Anaerobic Digester System (ADS.) The ADS converts the organic waste into clean power and water and it even utilizes all the by-product so there is no waste.

 

“We can no longer sustain the damage that has been done to our societies and planet. We need solutions that actually repair the damage that has been done…”

 

 

…says Bingham, who, as a 4th generation Vegas native, is committed to creating a sustainable future for her city and her neighbors.

The anaerobic digester energy project will utilize the NV Green Energy Program to deliver renewable energy to consumers. Bingham has had discussions with NV Energy and others interested in the project.

This project will generate energy and reduce the need for more landfill space, as well as a host of other environmental benefits. Like other renewable energy sources, this project will begin with a higher kilowatt-hour-cost than that of the existing dirty energy.  However, we expect the Anaerobic Digester kilowatt-hour-cost to decrease quickly, because it is not subject to weather like other renewable energy sources. This extra cost would either be covered by the community, charitable donors who believe in the project, and/or the casinos that see value in helping the community become energy independent.

This project will also involve building large commercial vertical farms which would offset the energy cost through food sales. This project will bring Las Vegas healthier food,reduced transportation costs, and big savings to the people in the community. But in order to do this, we need public support. If enough local people support the mission, it can move forward quickly!

 

 

Rosalie Bingham is on a mission to bring energy independence to Las Vegas. She is raising public awareness of environmental issues and has information on how people can help fuel “The Green Machine.”

Home Decor Updates

We have been in our new house for nearly 6 months and we love it! We got some new items like a dining table, a new bed, a new sofa set, and some chairs too. Decorating a house takes time and we spent a lot of our budget on the floors, the ceiling and painting so we are taking our time in getting decorations!

A really easy to way to bring some ‘life’ into a room is with art, and with Christmas coming up – if you don’t want to put up a tree and all that, you can actually do that spending less than $50!  Christmas backdrops are all the craze now. These are photographs that are high quality and brings a cool decorative element into any living space. I think it will be awesome to have this set up for a baby or pet photoshoot if you are into making family Christmas cards! They have various sizes available too.

Photography backdrops are going to be something I will definitely be investing in since we have baby on the way in the next 9 short weeks! What a cool way to make your home Insta-ready and have some fun backgrounds for month-by-month pic of baby and Cami.  Isn’t this one so pretty?

Also we are waiting to redo/retile our fireplace next year so maybe in the meantime, we can fill the space with Brick Backdrops?  Which one do you like? I do miss the exposed brick look that is so New York City but these pretty options really stand out to me.
