Get ready, cause it's about to be on and poppin'!!
If you weren't able to befriend a Sephora employee and snag a coupon code during Sephora Friend's and Family sale, no worries the Sephora VIB sale is right around the corner. I thought I'd share some tips that I find helpful when shopping the sale.
Tip 1: Items you are 100% certain of.... buy online
If you know that you use Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown, grab it online. Been eyeing Kat Von D's Saint and Sinner eyeshadow palette? Grab it online! Why you might ask?
Two reasons. First, the online stock of an item tends to be higher than in store; so your more likely to be able to purchase the item.
Second, you can use Ebates and earn back on your purchases. This helps to extend your savings.
If there are items such as foundations that you need...
Target, Sephora, Home Goods, and TJ Maxx. What do these stores have in common? They all the ability to keep me entranced for hours, as I peruse every single aisle. I could stay in these stores for hours and you can bet I always find something that has to come home with me. Today's finds come Target. I thought I'd share some new goodies I've been loving and hopefully you'll love them too.
I kinda have a an obsession with collecting coffee mugs. When I saw these two at Target, I thought they were too cute to pass on. Aren't these cups adorable? FYI The "Good Vibes" travel mug is ceramic so it's a heavy than your average travel mug.
I can't believe we are nearing the end of 2016. During the last few weeks of December, I often find myself reflecting on the year and on personal successes like the new blog site and areas where I would like to improve (ex. writing more post, maybe doing more fashion post).
There are also areas in the beauty arena where I feel I could grow and have set the following to be my personal beauty resolutions as we head into the new year.
Two new OPI polishes that are featured in my final haul for 2017 in the shades Pale to the Chief & Madame President
Resolution #1: I will up my nail game
Polished nails is something I always admire on other people, while my own nails seem to stay bare 99% of the time. In 2017 I want to play with polish, maybe venture into nail art. So long to bare, bor...
This post is not an easy one to write. I have edited many times because I wanted to make sure it was "right". But after multiple rewrites I think it is best just to write from the heart.
After learning I was pregnant again, I felt a lot of different emotions. I was happy, but I was also scared. I just wanted a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. A lot of days I had to fight through those fears. I was determined to have faith, but some days were better than others.
I don't know why I had a miscarriage and those whys haunted me for a long time. "If I don't know why, how can I prevent it from happening again?" I would ask myself.
I've had to learn to be okay with not fully understanding some of the whys life brings our way.
For my husband and I miscarriage is something we are getting through,...
Daisy Lewellyn from the Bravo TVs Blood, Sweat, and Heels
I'll openly admit I watch a lot of "reality" TV. Like makeup, it's one of my guilty pleasures. Blood, Sweat, and Heels was of the shows I would watch. So, I was heartbroken to learn that one of it's stars, Daisy Lewellyn had passed away of cancer.
Daisy was my favorite person to watch on the show. She seemed so bubbly and she was making her dreams come true in a city where it's very hard to do so. She just had a personality of someone who I could see myself being friends with, she just seem like a real girl's girl.
She was only 36 years old. That's so young. It just seems like she had so much more she could have achieved. She handle her illness with grace ad that's something I really admired about her.
In honor of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd share how I knew my husband was "the one". There are so many reason why I love my husband and so many stories I could share. But, the one I often find myself reflecting on is the simplest story of them all.
Back when we were just boyfriend/girlfriend, we were making a trip to Walmart. As we were getting out of the car, there was a woman who was struggling to get a mini fridge in her car. My future husband walked over to her and asked her if she needed any help, which she accepted.
So he helped put the fridge in her car, grabbed my hand and into Walmart we went. Some people would have walked by and not offered a helping hand.
But not him, I love the fact that being a good person is the core of who he is. He d...
To date this is the hardest post I've written. And if you are reading this I hope this is something you'll never have to eperience.
Late July 2015, my husband and I recieved the exciting news that we were expecting our second child. We were both very excited to welcome the newest little person in our family.
As a parent, I can tell you there's no love that compares to the love you have for your child. Think about it. With your spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend there was an attraction or chemistry. You connected with this person and probably have similiar interest or beliefs.
But, with your children it's just automatic love from the start. If one of your friends told you that they were in love with a person that they have never met, don't know whether he or she IS a he or she, or have common int...
