[Saint Paul] Como Park Zoo and Conservatory - Sunken Garden

Even in the dead of winter, the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory's Sunken Garden is beautiful, peaceful, and warm. Seriously, look at that! Can you imagine the windchill was -40F that day?



We were there to see the baby orangutan, Kemala, but I always like looking at the gardens, too.

Plus, it's a great urban escape and an escape from the bitter cold outside.

To get to the sunken garden, follow the signs past the gift shop to get to the gardens. You will go through the ferns and other tropical gardens before you get to the door to this area.

There is a beautiful reflecting pond and they had just hosted a garden party to celebrate spring (har har).

I highly recommend stopping by sometime. Take some time out of your schedule to meditate in this peaceful place.

There are also a ton of activities for the kids and the zoo to explore.

It's free admission!

Bonus:
There's a bonsai exhibition and you can learn about the art of bonsai.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
