Hey there, friends! As most of you know, I am a working momma. Whether I’m hard at work at my day job, or working on nights and weekends on my favorite blog, both jobs involve me sitting at a desk for long periods of time.Read More
Howdy, friends! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted! A lot of life has been going on, so it’s been hard to find time to write! I’ve been pretty active over on instagram though, so I’d love to have you follow and connect with me over there – so many great finds and products for you to see!
I just had to make time to do a little Holiday Gift Guide for the women in your life (or yourself!) I’ve fallen in love with SO many great products and brands this year, and I just had to share my finds, plus a few old favorites! Without further adieu, here are some gift ideas for your friends, girlfriends, wives, sisters, moms, co-workers, and/or secret santas! So here are my 10 gift ideas for the ladies in your life!
I know that my health really needs to be a number one priority in my life. Actually, this is the first time in my life that I’ve gotten more serious about a routine – I mean, I’m not getting any younger, and my health has not exactly been ideal these days! I think as a mom, I feel guilty carving out time to do things alone and put myself first. For one, I don’t have free time. But, I have to get my priorities in check. We make time for things that are most important to us, like kids. However, if we are not in good health and feeling our best both mentally and physically, then what good are we actually doing for our kids?
Easy craft that anyone can make!
I’m a Pinterest fanatic, and lately I’ve been looking for ideas on DIY Christmas crafts that my daughter and I can make together. I had my eye on a cute idea to make ornaments out of candy, but they were missing some vital steps in the process! So I combined some tips from a few different ideas to create a fail-proof formula to make the perfect candy ornaments! And trust me, if I can make them perfect every time, then so can you!
Impress her with these unique gifts!
Can you believe it’s already Christmas? I seriously cannot recall where the last few months went! I pretty much have all of my shopping done, which is a record for me! Not in the same boat? Don’t sweat it! I’ve made a simple gift list for all the ladies in your life of some of my favorite things this year – check them out and get them while there’s still time! Many of these items are eligible for Amazon Prime, too!
This diaper bag is for you, too, dads!
I don’t know about you, but things have been busy with plans revolving around Christmas already! We’ve been shopping, decorating and planning family events. I get so wrapped up in the holidays that I forget my little man’s birthday is soon after! Yikes! I’m gonna have to get into party planning mode soon! I cannot believe he will be two in January. That little dude is getting big – and heavy! One thing I seriously cannot stand is carrying a huge diaper bag around all the time when I have to tote him, too!
Learn about the Soapbox motto: Soap=Hope
So it’s no surprise that I’m a product junkie. And when I find some that I get extremely excited about – well, they end up here on the blog because I have to share my excitement! I had recently heard about a brand called Soapbox when I happened upon them on Instagram. And then – lucky me! They happened to find me too and ask if I wanted to try out some of their products for a review. Of course I agreed since I was already interested, but after trying the products I found out that I LOVE this company for way more than just the goods!
Happy 1 Year Blogiversary, Kentucky Makeup Junkie!
If you follow me over on Instagram, then you might have remembered seeing a recent post I did recently on July 6th – that date is special to me because it’s the day this blog turned a year old! YAY! Happy Blogiversary to me! *celebration dance* I have learned SO MUCH in my first year as a blogger! It’s been an UNREAL experience full of fun, success, and yes, failure. HAHA. I expected it all. What I didn’t expect was the amazing friendships that I was about to make! (And if you’re curious, you can check out my very first beauty post from a year ago right here!) And STAY TUNED…there is a surprise for you at the end of this post!
To Suit Every Budget
So it’s already mid July – how did that happen? This season is popular for more than just sun and fun – it’s wedding season! Surprisingly, I don’t have a lot of weddings to attend this year! But usually, this is the time where I’m always buying gifts, picking out a dress and planning to celebrate. And in the past (when I worked as a wedding planner), of course I was planning every last detail for all the big days!
As a wedding planner, I used to get asked this question a lot – “what should I get my bridesmaids”? It’s customary for the bride and groom to give a gift to their maids and men, so if you’re having troubles trying to think of ideas, then here’s a fun list of ideas ready for you!
