My Current Skin Care Routine | Rooted Beauty Review

(This post is not sponsored, but Grove Collaborative did send me some of these items for free in exchange for reviews on their website)
Rooted Beauty Skin Care Review | www.kristenwoolsey.com

I shared my natural DIY skin care routine over 2 years ago! I loved that routine, and absolutely still stand by those recipes. After awhile, though, it's just nice to change things up! Grove Collaborative sent me a couple of their Rooted Beauty products when they launched the line last fall, and I fell in love with them! I ended up buying almost everything else in the product line up. I've been using this system since November, and I just love how my skin has been looking.

Scenes from Sedona & The Hoover Dam | Days Five and Six

Sedona
At this point in our adventure, we were getting pretty tired. Sedona was the perfect way to break up all the hiking we'd be doing. When we arrived, we really enjoyed walking around the downtown area, popping in and out of shops. There are a lot of unique shops in Sedona! 

We really enjoyed this seperate artisan area. It felt like another country! We loved checking out a vintage record store, and enjoyed a whiskey tasting.

Horseback Riding in Monument Valley | Day Four


Looking at these pictures makes me feel sore all over again, haha! One of the things I really wanted to do on our trip was go horseback riding. Originally, we planned to do it in Zion National Park, but the company we were interested in wasn't open until the following week. So we decided to do it in Monument Valley! I can't think of a better way to see these amazing monuments!

Horseshoe Bend & Lower Antelope Canyon | Day Three


File Horseshoe Bend under totally unexpected! It's such a neat spot. I had imagined it'd be a quick place to pull over a snap a photo, but it ended up being much more than that. There is a fee to park, and limited facilities. The parking lot is actually about a half a mile 'hike' to the bend. There are fenced in portions, but there are also tons of places you can walk right up to the edge. (Another day of being nervous watching people risk their lives for Instagram shots.)

Scenes from the Grand Canyon | Day Two

In the second installment of our 10th anniversary trip (here is day 1), here are some scenes from the Grand Canyon! Neither of us had been before, and I was truly blown away. This is going to sound dumb, but the Grand Canyon is so much bigger than I ever thought. It's so vast, and incredible. 

As I mentioned in the Zion post, I am afraid of heights. I almost forgot I was afraid of heights until going on this trip! I stayed really far from the edge when possible, but it was other people that made me a ball of nerves this entire day. So many people were taking huge risks for photos!
