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
At my baby shower my mother gifted me a ton of adorable baby clothes from a brand I had never heard of. There were snuggly jammies, simple and classic onesies, and little skull caps to match. When Joshua Jr started to grow out of the newborn sizes I headed to their website and ordered up duplicate sets of all my favorite pieces in each size. That’s how much I LOVE these clothes! The line is from the company Little Me and they have a whole lot more than jammies, onesies and skull caps. I adore their simple and sweet line and can’t get enough of their animal themed footies and tiny gentleman like summer outfits.
I’m always looking for new projects to embark on (despite the fact I’m rarely done with the project at hand!) and thought I’d share my favorite finds with you all. As soon as the weather finally turned towards the lovely summer temps I’ve been pining for, I put down my bulky yarn, giant needles and cozy blanket patterns so I could start looking for a lighter project that better suited the warmer weather. Here’s what I found. I hope something in this list inspires those of you, who like me, can’t bare to have idle hands! Enjoy!Continue Reading
As my delivery day approached I started obsessing over what to bring with me for my two day hospital stay. I have never ever had to be hospitalized (thank heavens) and really had no idea what to expect. I’ve never been a big fan of hospitals, who is really, and the thought of being stuck in one of those tiny, hard beds in a tiny, airless room was completely stressing me out. My obsession with what to pack was my way of calming my nerves and controlling the only things I could control. Making sure I had everything I’d need to be as comfortable as possible.Continue Reading
