My Favorite Baby Finds: Part 1

Joshua Jr. celebrating his first birthday with cake
I love baby stuff…I mean I really, really love it. When Josh and I were expecting Naleigh I spent months researching everything from the best diaper wipes to the safest car seats and I was no different with Adalaide or Joshua Jr. There’s just something about spending hours online perusing everything baby that amps up the excitement for and soothes some of the anxieties about your little ones arrival. At least it does for me! For those of you who would rather not spend the wee hours of the night online comparing baby wipes and car seats I’ve decided to share my favorite must haves with you. Hopefully my extensive list will save you time you may not have and worry you can not spare. Enjoy!Continue Reading

My Favorite Beauty Finds: Part 1

Katherine Heigl's skin care regime
Over the last few years I’ve managed to hone in on a few things that help me look and feel my most beautiful. I’ve streamlined my skin care regime and cherry picked the best products to help me achieve that often illusive clear skin glow. I’ve carved out time to get my roots done regularly and have my lash extensions cared for (said lash extensions are kind of my new favorite beauty find by the way!) I’ve discovered the perfect apps to help me maintain a consistent, quick and relatively easy workout routine and I’ve mostly stopped buying the latest trends in favor of fits and styles I know are more flattering to my figure. It’s taken me about 20 years to figure out what I most need, what truly works and how I really want to feel and I thought I’d share my findings with you. As I started listing and linking to all my favorites I realized I needed to break this post up into parts. It was getting a little overwhelming and way too long to be easily digestible so I decided to start my beauty share with my favorite lash extension line, my 10 minute or less makeup routine and the two apps I’m using now to help rid myself of the last of my baby weight. The next post will have all the info and links to my all time favorite skin care products and after that I’ll dive into my go to jeans, tops and sweaters that help shape, lift, minimize and flatter me the most. I’ve discovered that feeling beautiful is beautiful and that there’s no shame in passing by a mirror and smiling at what you see!Continue Reading
