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?
I must admit that hubby and I haven’t made a lot of time for date nights lately! Bummer! Busy life getting in the way! But we just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary recently which called for a night out! I created a soft glam makeup look with some new products I was trying out, so I wanted to share my faves with you! Here’s my soft glam date night makeup look!
I have always had the worst dark under eye circles. As I’ve gotten older, they only have gotten more prominent. And I swear, they’ve gotten so much worse in the last two years. (Probably not a coincidence that my son is two years old, is it?) Ha! He’s probably part of the reason. Good thing he’s cute. Overall though, I’m just getting older and fine lines have been an increasing issue for me as well.
SO what do I do about my dark circles usually? All I really do about them is just conceal, conceal, conceal. I LOVE my concealer. And honestly, I don’t ever go without it. If I do, then I constantly get asked, “Oh honey, are you okay? You look so tired.” Or I will get: “Are you feeling okay? You don’t look so great.” Yeah? Well, thanks. I mean, mom life has taken a toll on me for sure, and at 36 years old, I’m not getting any younger. I also don’t pamper myself the way that I know that I should (and deserve). But I’ve finally found a product that helps with the dark under eye circles and also helps with self care!
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of hair and makeup products. (Clearly.) But the truth is, during the week I just want to use as few products as necessary to achieve a great natural look. I’m a busy momma who works full time and blogs on the side. I don’t have a lot of time for fuss and getting ready Monday through Friday when I’m dropping kids off, driving an hour to work, working, you get the picture! Whatever I can do to get ready quickly and still look presentable for work is a plus!

Howdy, folks! I’m sure you know by now my love for trying out ALL the mascaras. While I do love both high-end and drugstore mascaras, I’m really a sucker for finding a good drugstore formula because MOMLIFE and I like to save money! So today I’m sharing with you my top 3 favorite drugstore mascaras of the moment!
I spend a lot of time at my makeup table. I get ready there every morning, and I love that I have it in a room with my own space so that I can organize my stuff as I see fit! But whether you have a vanity, a desk or just get ready at your bathroom sink, you probably have a stash somewhere with all of your products. Having a lot of products can make things messy real fast, so makeup organization is key! There are so many cute organizers out there, but rest assured that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on the fancy ones. Some of my faves are from the dollar store! Read on to check out my faves!
You guys, I am soooo ready for Spring. The season may officially have started, there are still patches of snow on the ground. UGH. I don’t know what’s going on with mother nature, but I won’t let it stop me from trying to feel spring-y, darn it! And since I love lipstick so much, I thought I’d dish on my favorite lippies for Spring to get in the mood!
and why you’ll love them also!
