my beauty favorites right now!

I am very minimal when it comes to beauty, but once I find a product I love, I'll use it for as long as I can. Over the years, I've slowly transitioned the things I use on my face from all drugstore finds to some nicer, quality products. Part of that change has to do […]

my current winter beauty essentials…

With the extra dry and chilly temperatures this winter, I've changed up a few things into my daily routine. Since I've received questions about the various products I use, I thought it would be helpful to compile them all in one post with some current favorites!

my winter beauty essentials…

I've always been very minimal about skincare and used the easiest, not-too-expensive thing I could find at the drug store. As I've gotten older, I have been okay with getting nicer products and allowing myself to spend money on skincare. Right before the holidays, I wasn't taking care of my skin. It was dry and […]

my 5 favorite beauty products for summer…

I'm not a big beauty junkie, but I definitely have my daily go-to staples. Here are my five favorites for every day use this summer… 1. Nars Orgasm blush—I know everyone has this blush, but it is still the best one I've ever used for my skin tone. It's the perfect rosy shade that allows you […]

how to feel young even as you get older…

Last month, I turned 37. And while I often joke that I am “so old” because of my numeric age, I always feel like I’m actually in my early 20’s. Now, that doesn’t mean I have the desire to stay up late and party like a young 20-something, but in my mind, I feel younger […]

business in the front, party in the back…

So there was this one morning (really, most mornings) when I woke up and could not get my act together to get showered or really do much of anything to my hair. A couple weeks ago, I share this really easy bobbi pin hairstyle with you. And here's one more! This is for those days that […]

a really cute way to use bobbi pins…

I have never been one of those people who spends a lot of time getting ready in the morning. I have a very simple morning routine that doesn't take very long at all, and I'm super simple with my hair and makeup on the average day. So I'm always looking for (and thinking about) easy […]

{dollar store DIY} july 4th nails!

We have so many dollar stores in my neighborhood (seriously you can't miss them!). So I thought it would be fun to start incorporating some of the best under-cover finds from the dollar store into some colorful projects! First up, we're using tiny star sequins from the dollar store to decorate our nails for the […]

what i’ll tell my daughters someday…

When I was growing up, any and all of my insecurities came from what I thought I wanted to look like but did not look like. My mom was the most encouraging woman I could have asked for and always told me how beautiful she thought I was. But it took a really long time […]
