5 Things I Need Your Advice On Now!

Hola guys. Has this felt like the longest week ever to anyone else? Every morning I woke up, I always seemed to think it was the next day. We had a sick little girl at the beginning of the week and I just couldn't seem catch up on my sleep. Hence feeling basic here and while it's not the most glamorous, sharing this :).  

Today I thought I'd try something different for my Five on Friday (previous post). Here are five things I am looking for advice on this week, like seriously could use some help y'all, lend a girl a hand. Comment below or let me know on Instagram or Facebook.
clockwise: paris, dress, skincare, workout

{ONE}
Your favorite skin care products? 
I need a new skin care routine that won't blow the budget and is really low maintenance. I loved Rodan & Fields but I'm taking a pause to try out some new things. I'm loving the organic/natural skin care movement right now too, so would especially love any suggestions there.

Update: I've recently heard about the Nexacell anti-aging skin care line and while I've heard mixed reviews about the subscription setup (much like R&F), it sounds like something good to try. Any thoughts?

{TWO}
Paris. All things Paris. 
I'm so completely overwhelmed in planning our trip to Paris. Where to stay? Best restaurant splurge? Best patisserie? Must-see sights? Things we can skip? What to pack?! It will be both my and Ryan's first time in the city and we only have 3 1/2 days. Help, pahlease!

{THREE}
Formal gown for a southern summer wedding? 
Shopping has never been a problem for me, until now. I can't find the right dress to wear to a formal wedding we have in June at Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston. Do I risk doing rent the runway, I'm such a shorty? There's a fine line between maxi and formalwear, send me links to your favs!

{FOUR}
Fun/motivating/effective workouts. 
Losing weight and being a skinny minnie ain't always been my thang if you know what I mean ;). Yet summer has me wanting to really kick into gear the shedding of those last lbs. I packed on during pregnancy. Any tips for me? When do you workout? DVD or gym or class or running?

{FIVE}
What blog post/s would you like to see coming up? 
I have so many posts to share still from our SC adventures (Charleston, Sully's birthday, weddings) that I feel like my normal posts are going by the wayside. Would you like to see more home-centric/decorating posts? Sully/mommyhood posts? Fashion? 20 Questions/Confessions/About Me? 

I know that's a lot, I'm just feeling a bit cluttered here lately, know what I mean? Would love your thoughts on one or all of the above! And don't forget to check out my experience at Zero George in Charleston (kinda proud of this post) and my fav new summer Lilly releases here.

Now that Sully is almost at 100%, we're looking forward to heading to the lake nearby with my family for Memorial Day weekend. I'm hoping this will help me catch up and clear my head. Have any big plans this weekend?

Here's who I'm teaming up with today on this Five on Friday: A. Liz AdventuresCarolina CharmHello! Happiness and The Good Life.
