I don’t know about you, but I LOVE me some lipstick. Some people prefer gloss. Some skip their lips all together. I must admit, I love gloss also, but I love the look and feel of a pretty color on my lips. Maybe it’s because my natural lip color is non-existent? I dunno. The only thing I hate about it? Reapplying (or checking to see if I need to reapply). Whether I’m at work or out at a party, I don’t want to worry if my lipstick has faded or disappeared quickly. I’m sure you feel the same. So you want to know how to make your lipstick last all day?
Want to know the step that’s missing from your makeup routine? You’ve got it – it’s color correction. Is it a must? Well, no, but it can be pretty important if you’ve got a lot to cover up! The art of color correction has been around for a long time, but a lot of people simply don’t know how to use the colors that they need. I mean, it is pretty scary looking at these crazy colors and wondering how on earth they are supposed to neutralize your face, right? Well, hopefully I can enlighten you a little bit.
I’m a sucker for all-natural products, and many of them are multi-purpose. I love this. If I can use the product for many different reasons, then it certainly justifies the purchase (for me). So when I find something that I love that’s good for me and easy on my wallet, well, that info is just begging to be shared.
I happen to be a full-time working mom. I breastfeed my son (who is currently 8 months old) and he gets bottles of breast milk while I’m away. This means I have to get my pump on at work. I also did a lot of breast pumping at work for my daughter who is now 5 years old, so this isn’t my first rodeo. The following is what works for me, but if I can help another momma out with some tips, then I’ll be happy! So here are some tips coming from a working, pumping mom who has done this more than once!
Well, it’s official. I’m now the mother of a 5-year-old! This past week was our daughter Sydney’s birthday. We had an amazing day, just the four of us, our happy little family playing at a new park that we’d been wanting to go to, eating cake and playing with new presents. It was wonderful, peaceful, quiet and perfect. It’s also been an emotional one for me. I don’t know why. She gets older every year. But 5 seems like such a milestone, doesn’t it?
Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I’m scheming up some good things to write about! I just had to get a quick post in about a new product that I’m in LOVE with for the undereye area.
Y’all know that I love my drugstore products. But, I also love lots of other higher end brands, so sometimes a momma’s gotta splurge. Typically, I like to find makeup dupes of the high end products at the drug store, but sometimes, you just have to whip out the big guns. When it comes to my undereye area, well, let’s just say we needed an army to get this job done.
When I became a mom in 2011, one of my hardest realizations was understanding that if anything was to get done around the house, then it would no longer be with two hands. Heck, we’re lucky to get one hand sometimes, am I right, mommas? That’s when I discovered babywearing. It’s a game-changer (for me, anyways). Getting two hands back? AWESOME. Baby happy? Check. Momma happy? Oh, yes. Although I do own a simple sling and an ergonomic carrier, the Moby Wrap is by far my absolute favorite.
I’ve always coveted that dewy makeup look. But somehow, it’s always seemed hard to get the look right. For me, I always wanted a subtle natural glow, but I just couldn’t seem to achieve it with makeup the way I wanted without caking on the highlighter. Read More
So I thought I’d talk about a very important feature – those eyebrows. Since they are the face framers, they make a big impact, so you’ll want to do them up right! One great thing about brows and makeup – this is an area that I don’t think you have to spend a lot of money on to get the result you’re looking for. So let’s save some moolah while we get some great brows, shall we? Get ready to read on whether or not you should use pencil vs powder.
I’m super excited about my first post! And since I’m a beauty blog virgin (but not new to blogging), you’ll take it easy on me, right? Well for starters, let me introduce myself. I’m Jill, and I’m a married momma of two who lives in northern Kentucky, just across the bridge from Cincinnati, Ohio. My husband Chad and my two kids, Sydney and Ryan, are my whole wide world.
