It’s no secret: I live in Florida, and I am pretty much wearing attire that shows my skin in some way 24/7. And, with the warm months now in full swing, that rings true even more so! My razor pretty much goes into overdrive during this season…from donning shorts, to skirts, to dresses, to tank tops, to bathing suits! Since my razor gets daily use, having one with smoothing power is absolutely essential.
Sometimes, you just have to upgrade things in your life. I always say that there are worthy splurges out there, and the Schick Hydro Silk® razor is certainly one of them. I love the hydrating strips surrounding the razor blades – my legs don’t feel dry immediately after use, and they really help the razor to glide across your skin. The moisturizer is a water activated serum, and it hydrates for up to 2 hours after a shave. I definitely do not fear nicks and cuts with the Schick Hydro Silk® either! There are five curve-sensing blades on this razor, which allows for an incredibly close shave. And the unique skin guards smooth your skin while helping to avoid irritation. Plus, can we talk about how pretty of a color mine is? I always appreciate a bit of turquoise in my life… Making exciting upgrades can happen in more than one area, of course! I was inspired to upgrade another aspect of my life with a new addition to my kitchen. I wanted to make a batch of cookies, but I thought I could use an upgrade from the basic chocolate chip variety I typically whip up. Instead, I decided to make macaroons! If you have not tried a macaroon before, they are a revelation. The crunchy meringue cookie surrounds the outside…the creamy filling is soft inside…it’s a sandwich cookie I dream about. However, the ingredients to make a batch of these tiny cookies is not exactly cheap. A small bag of almond meal/flour runs about $12, so by the time you source the rest of the ingredients for your treats, they do end up costing a bit more than average. But like I said – sometimes an upgrade is worth the splurge! And I didn’t stop with the upgrades for just the cookie portion of the macaroon…I decided to make my own buttercream frosting instead of buying it pre-made from the store. Fresh buttercream frosting? So much better than frosting in a can! In the end, I would say it was a worthy upgrade! I love a classic chocolate chip cookie, but there is something so FANCY and decadent about a macaron. They’re a delicate and luxurious bite of goodness. Schick Hydro Silk® razor is annoucing their Razorvention™ Revamp.
