8 Products I Loved in 2017

I love the New Year.  I don’t think so much about what I “accomplished” but more about the memories I made.  More than anything else, my goal last year and this year was to put 100% into home life and most of that doesn’t get documented on social media.  Instead, like a dinner you spend […]

It’s Advent Calendar Time

December might be cold, but the cheeriness extends all month long thanks to Advent calendars.  Unless there’s one with dark chocolate in it, I’m not a huge fan of the kind they have at the grocery store, and like my advent with different goodies in it. Check out this beauty from L’Occitane.  It’s filled with […]

Velour Lashes

I love the look of long long lashes, but when you have little kids around you every time you’re in the bathroom, it can get difficult to really focus and do a winged liner or put lashes on properly.  My kids just love watching me get ready, they’re constantly asking questions, and then they dip […]

Drugstore vs. Department Store Loose Powder

I get asked a LOT about good drugstore products, and I have to say that I recommend drugstore products as much as I recommend department store products. Many times, a drugstore brand has the money to research new technologies and sometimes, one large company owns both drugstore and department store brands. Here are two pictures […]
