I have been a follower of your blog for a while and it humors me that you will be having a baby tomorrow and today you are acting business as usual…haha. I am sure in your head and off the blog you are doing crazy prep work, it just seems funny because I would be saying something about it in every post. Good luck tomorrow and have a great last day as a family of two.

Cassie says · 12.12.13

I am in skin care crisis right now… my skin has drastically changed over the past 6 months… so thank you for these ideas!

Viktoria says · 12.12.13

It is sooo cute … I thought in your last video “Oh, yeah, now she is really in here late pregnancy…” because you have trouble with your breath. So, and now today you are talking so sweet about it … Also, my first thought today: “Oh, sure she is delivering her baby tommorow – the only thing I could do is beeing really nervous – and she, she is doing another video.” I love it!!!

sandpaperandglue.com says · 12.12.13

I love that ginzing eye cream! I get very bad psoriasis around my eyes and it’s the only thing I can use that really helps soothe it and doesn’t burn πŸ™‚

eowens says · 12.12.13

Wishing you much happiness as you welcome your son into the world today! I am a newborn hearing screener and even if I am having a bad day I go into work and see this precious little life that God created and it puts it all back into perspective. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Side note, Mary Kay has a new skinvigorate cleansing brush for only $50 where other brands are upwards of $100 and more. I love mine and use it twice a day. I am amazed even after using good skin care (Mary Kay) for years how much makeup was still being left on my skin after cleansing. Ew! Also curious to your thoughts on using multiple different brands of skin care products versus using the same brand which are formulated to work together versus as I call it “hodge-podging” and being disappointed with the results.

Becky Bomar says · 12.12.13

I love Philosophy and Ponds brand. They work best with my skin!


Kera Pellett says · 12.12.13

Congradulations on your son tomorrow! Good luck! πŸ™‚ before you go though, I have a question about primers. Most primers that I have used have a dry feeling to them, nothing moisturizing at all ( I don’t know if that is possible for a primer to be). I know primers are very important, do you have any suggestions?

azwyattfamily says · 12.12.13

Praying for you and your little family today as you prepare and tomorrow when you join the amazing journey of motherhood. In an instant, you will have a deeper understanding of how Good loves His children and your beautiful son will show you that more and more every day. And be prepared to fall in love with your husband in a whole new way when you see him become a doting daddy! Praying for wisdom for your doctors and a safe and happy delivery for you and your sweet boy.

Elizabeth L says · 12.12.13

Thank you for the video! I was surprised to see this since I know that the big day is tomorrow. Best of luck! It will really be one of the best days of your life. I am excited for you to meet your little boy! Enjoy every moment! It really goes so fast. People told me that and it is so true. My newborns are 5 and 8. πŸ™‚

Carrie says · 12.12.13

Good luck to you tomorrow as you meet your precious son. Being a mommy is the absolute greatest gift of all! I’ll be praying for you.

Cassie says · 12.12.13

Kate, I am SO excited for you to experience the absolute miracle of becoming a mommy! It is truly God’s most wonderful gift to us! Being a boy mom is especially fun and exciting…I have three little boys and 1 little girl. And there is something super special about a boy/momma relationship. Will be praying for an easy delivery and fast recovery time for you!!

Also, I want to say thanks for all the hard work you do to put together this blog. I have used so many of the products you recommend for hair, skin, and makeup and I am never disappointed. πŸ™‚ I did recently decide to find a full skin care line to target some fine lines and wrinkles (gasp!) as well as treat some acne breakouts. I decided to try out Rodan + Fields clinical skin care line. I LOVE IT!! In fact, I love it so much I decided to go ahead and sell it! It comes with a 60 day money back guarantee so its totally risk free and it has changed the way my skin feels and looks. They have this incredible exfoliator too that I thought would be similiar to my Clairsonic. Oh my the MACRO-E is awesome!! Anyway, if you are ever interested in giving it a try, let me know and I would love to send you some free samples of what we have. You can go to my website to check out what we offer. It is cassiegriffin.myrandf.com or you could reach me at my5griffins (at) gmail . com.

Praying for you and your sweet Christmas baby!! πŸ™‚

Kim says · 12.12.13

Whew. I have been waiting for this video for a long time lol. I’m always trying to find a better exfoliant/mousturizing/cleaning combo. I feel like I switch products all the time. Right now I use St. Ives Timeless Face Lotion, which has given me zero breakouts. I’m definitely going to look into the philosophy products that you mentioned.

Sisterino says · 12.12.13

Praying for you tomorrow when you become a MAMA! =)

A Wife and her Carpenter says · 12.12.13

Praying for you and your c-section tomorrow. You will do great! Mine was a breeze even though it wasn’t planned. Just think, you will be holding your little one soon! I pray God gives you peace and that you and Justin are able to enjoy your last evening as a family of two!

Vivian Rose says · 12.12.13

Oh my gosh is it tomorrow yet?! I bet that’s what you are thinking! I am so happy for you and I know that tomorrow will go great for you. Congratulations ahead of time on your new baby boy. I think I speak for all of your readers when I say we can’t wait to meet him and hear how you are doing. You are going to be a wonderful mother! Take care and God bless you!

Patricia Eckley says · 12.12.13

quick question regarding the clarisonic, do you need to use their cleansers or can you use what ever brand of cleanser you prefer?

Emma B. says · 12.12.13

Yay! I have been researching primers after coming to the end of my Benefit Stay Flawless stick. After reading several reviews I decided to pick up the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, today actually. So now I feel like it has your seal of approval. Can’t wait to try it in the morning!

Kelly G says · 12.12.13

Good luck to you and your family tomorrow. I have a friend who’s being induced tomorrow. I’ll be thinking of you both!

soozq97 says · 12.12.13

I had to laugh at your “out-of-breath-ness”. I can so relate. Its like the moment you turn 12 weeks pregnant (and beyond), and your baby is only the size of an almond, you begin to feel like you must’ve gained 500lbs overnight and going from sitting to standing sounds like you actually tried to climb the Empire State Building. Enjoy your huge breath of fresh air tomorrow! You will be cuddling your sweet boy in less than 24 hours! Very excited for you and praying for health and ease in all things.

I lost my dad on Nov. 30th, he would have been 85 tomorrow. It makes me happy to know that a new precious baby boy will share his birthday. Hugs and kisses to the three of you-get ready for the ride of your life!

kristinwithani says · 12.13.13

I’m a huge fan of most philosophy products – from skincare to makeup to body stuff. I have used purity for many years and added the exfoliating a few years ago. I use the purity at night to remove my makeup and the exfoliating in the morning on makeup-free skin.

Girls, use your eye cream!!! I started around 30 but I wish I had started earlier. That skin is tender and needs love.

Now go have that baby boy!

Sarah Hannon says · 12.14.13

I totally agree with the St.Ives. It VERY harsh but boy, does it clean.

surender kumar says · 12.16.13

A new research study states that personal care products like that shampoos, lotions etc, which are applied on the tender baby bodies, contain parabens that are potentially harmful substances.

Ann Shirley says · 12.16.13

You mention some really great products! I’m also a fan of Pond’s Original Refresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes. I use them to take my makeup off all the time. They are great because they can take eye makeup off without irritating my eyes and they are pretty reasonably priced.

Another skincare item that I really love is natural sunscreen to protect my skin from harmful uv rays. I think wearing sun screen year round is essential and I love this product because I know there’s no harmful chemicals in it.

Dermatologists have an advantage when choosing makeup – they know what ingredients are beneficial and which should be avoided. Finding out what makeup they wear helps us to figure out which makeup might be best for our skin as well.

Check out this, I use it everyday!

Acne is a common skin condition It causes spots to develop on the skin, usually on the face, back and chest. Acne is known to run in families. The spots can range from blackheads and whiteheads which are often mild, to inflamed pus-filled pustules and cysts, which can be severe and long lasting and can lead to scarring.

Suggested Practices: Keeping your skin clean is important to prevent new spots developing. Wash the affected area twice a day with Mindfulminerlas.com# Dead Sea Mud Soap# twice a day, plus dead sea Cleanser# three times a week, but do not scrub the skin too hard to avoid irritating it; also we suggest bi-weekly mud masks Although acne can’t be cured, it can be controlled with suggested mindful minerals# natural treatments.

mindfulminerals.com also has free trial products!!!

The best thing to know is that everyone’s skin is different and can handle different products. I am an Esthetician and have had clients experience this very frequently. If you have dry skin you should avoid products that dry out the skin, they will make your acne worse.
