Surprising Beauty Upgrade I Made

When you think about making an upgrade to your beauty routine, your mind probably goes to skincare, makeup, or hair care. I am willing to bet that when you think about upgrading your beauty routine, you don’t think about upgrading your deodorant! A deodorant upgrade is just the upgrade I made recently and I am so glad I did! When you are thinking about what beauty upgrade you want to make next, you should think about upgrading your deodorant too.

All Natural Skin Exfoliant for Less Than $1!

I hadn’t ever used skin exfoliant until I was in beauty school. I struggled with clogged pores all through high school and when I found out that all I had to do to make my skin look about 1,000 times better was by exfoliating, I was thrilled! The problem was that the skincare line that was used at my beauty school was quite expensive and I hated spending that much money for an exfoliant. After I started working in a day spa, I learned a trick to creating the perfect skin exfoliant for less than $1!

The thing I love the most about creating my own exfoliant is that I have complete control over how intense the exfoliator is. Sometimes my skin needs to be exfoliated more than other times and I have total control over that when I make my own!  [Read more…]

Valentine’s Date Makeup

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Know Cosmetics. All opinions are 100% mine.

Valentine’s Day is one day each year that I look forward to getting dolled up. Busy moms don’t get the opportunity to get dressed up very often, so I like to really embrace the experience when I have the opportunity. However, getting ready for a date doesn’t need to take as long as it once did when I was in high school or college. Thankfully I have discovered a few products that make doing my makeup easy and it looks a whole lot better than my makeup did in college!

I love the idea of highlighting natural beauty, so that I can feel more like the best version of myself rather than not feel like myself at all. I believe this Valentine’s date makeup look does just that! [Read more…]

I am SO excited to announce something pretty huge coming this year! After receiving several requests to share bath bomb recipes, I will be sharing a new bath bomb recipe once a month! Each month in 2017, I will bring a new bath bomb recipe that is themed for the month. I have some really fun bath bomb recipes and ideas in the works for you! To kick it all off, I have the perfect bath bomb recipe for cold and flu season! This bath bomb helps clear out sinuses and relieves achy muscles at the same time.

Festive Party Hairstyles

I received the Infiniti PRO by Conair  Spin Air Brush and the Infiniti PRO by Conair® Diamond Brilliance™ Diamond-Infused Ceramic Smoothing Hot Brush for my own personal use.  All opinions, text and experiences are my own.

I love holiday parties of any kind, but I think the reason why I love them so much is that it gives me an excuse to dress up a little bit. I don’t go to any fancy parties, but I like spending a little extra time on my look when I am going to a party because it makes me feel festive and excited for the party! I created two simple hairstyles that would be great for any festive party you plan to attend, or really just any day you want to try a fun hairstyle!

Both of these looks are really easy to create! I love that one has a more voluminous, messy look and the other one is quite straight and sleek so that you can choose the one that best fits your personal style. [Read more…]

Get Your Hair Through the Dry Months

This content was sponsored by Aussie but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I hope you enjoy following along! #ad

My hair really suffers this time of year. Once the summer is gone and autumn comes, my hair seems to take a nice break and can be pretty healthy. Once autumn starts going away and the cold, dry winter sets in it is another story. My hair gets incredibly dry and brittle during the winter. I love finding products that can help get my hair through these cold, winter months. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out a variety of Aussie Hair products and I was really impressed by them!

Awesome LUSH Fun Hacks

Who else loves LUSH Cosmetics as much as I do? It is kind of like my grown up, local version of Disneyland. It is such a happy store, full of unique products that smell divine! Dave knows that Harper and I both love LUSH and one day, he surprised us with goodies from LUSH. He had bought LUSH Fun for Harper to try out. We hadn’t ever used it before, but we became instant fans. If you haven’t ever heard of LUSH Fun, it has the consistency of dough that kids can play with, but it can also be used as bubbles and soap! It became an instant favorite at our house.

I had a friend who worked at LUSH for a while and she learned some great hacks for making the most out of LUSH Fun! With her permission, I am sharing those tips with you!
