Gorgeous Turquoise for Spring

This post is sponsored by JTV. I was paid for this post and received JTV jewelry pieces as compensation. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

As I have grown up, I have come to really appreciate authentic jewelry. There is just something special about knowing that what you are wearing is real and it is quality. That is why I have been a fan of JTV for many years. It is jewelry that I love, quality that I want, and at prices that I can actually afford!

Springtime Baby Skincare

Tracking Pixel

There isn’t a lot of focus on baby skincare, unless there is an obvious problem with their skin. I learned this the hard way when my baby’s skin was showing signs of being quite sensitive. She would get bumps on her skin from lotions, wipes, and body wash. It was so sad! Most of these things could have been easily ignored, which is why it is so important to pay attention to your baby’s skin. They aren’t able to tell us if something is wrong with their skin, so it is important to really pay attention to how their skin is reacting to any new product you are using. That is why I was thrilled to partner with Baby Dove on this sponsored post. We have been using their products and they are working wonders on my baby’s sensitive skin.
The changing of seasons can also bring a lot of change to a baby’s skin. The more time spent outside will bring a lot of new experiences for a baby, and that can bring new challenges for their skin as well. It is something that we, as parents, need to be aware of.

Thankfully, we have found that Baby Dove products work wonders on my baby’s sensitive skin! Baby Dove cleansers and lotions are made with 100% skin-natural nutrients for delicate baby skin. This has definitely been apparent as we have used Baby Dove products. [Read more…]

Combating Winter Skin Problems

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

My skin gets incredibly dry during the winter. I know that this is an issue that a lot of people deal with. My skin is dry all year round, so the extremely dry months are really hard on my skin. I have tried a lot of moisturizers in the past. Some of the issues I have experienced with moisturizers have been that they are too thick, sticky, or they don’t give me the moisture that I need.

That is why I have really enjoyed using the Olay Total Effects Whip! It is helping me combat my winter skin problems. I have been using it for about a month now and my skin is feeling more moisturized than it has felt during the winter months in years past.

Typically, my skin will get really dry on and around my nose, on my smile lines, and on my chin. Ironically, they are places where many people have oily skin issues! My skin will get dry and flaky, making it so my foundation looks terrible over the top! That is what I have experienced for years! But this year has been much different. [Read more…]

Rethink Your Diaper and Wipe Choices!

This post is sponsored by Comforts Brand

When I first became a mom, I had no idea how many diaper and wipe options I would be faced with. It became a little overwhelming sometimes! What really confused me is when one brand would seem to work really well and the next month, it would be failing miserably. I never could find a diaper and wipe brand that I loved. It made me really frustrated because I was only using the name brands that I had grown up seeing commercials for. I thought that those had to be the best options out there. Boy, was I wrong!

Glam Fall Makeup Look

I love making my makeup a little more moody as the seasons change. After a summer full of light and airy makeup, I am ready to bring on the rich colors of Fall. This glam Fall makeup look can easily be worn as an everyday look if it is paired with a little less dramatic lip color and looks fantastic for a night out with an even more dramatic lip color! I love how regal it feels, without being over the top and difficult to recreate.

When I do my makeup like this and really try to focus on my eye makeup, it is important that I wear contacts. I have experienced doing my makeup in the past, only to have to wear my glasses and it just kind of takes away the effect! I find my ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses just as important in my beauty routine as my actual beauty products. I have absolutely loved these ACUVUE®  VITA® Brand Contact lenses that were so highly recommended to me during my Target Optical® visit.

To create this eye makeup look, I used one eyeshadow palette with many neutral options. I love having a palette like this because I can find every color I need in one place. I also used a liquid eyeliner pen and volumizing mascara. [Read more…]

Root Cover Up Hack

This post is sponsored by Everpro Gray Away. All of the thoughts and opinions are my own.

When I was doing hair full time, one question that seemed to be asked a lot was how to extend the life of their hair color. There were a few tips that I would give my clients, but there was no real way to cover up the roots that well. That has all changed! I recently tried Gray Away and I was so impressed with my results! I had no idea there was such an easy root cover up solution!

What to Expect When Getting Permanent Makeup

I used to fill in my eyebrows every single day. I did it so many times, that I thought that I had gotten it down to the point where it didn’t take very long. Then one day I was trying to get out the door and I was just going to fill in my brows and put on some mascara before leaving the house because I didn’t have time to worry about anything else. Those few steps ended up taking way longer than they should have. That was when I finally decided to start saving to get permanent makeup done on my brows!

I’m FINALLY getting sleep!

When my 5 year old was a baby, my husband and I were diligent about the sleep program that we can chosen before she was born. She spent 11 days in the NICU and came home with her own little baby schedule that the hospital had created for her. There were definitely some hard nights but once we got her trained, she was an awesome sleeper. Flash forward to present day. My 9 month old has been a completely different experience! She has been a hard baby to train. It doesn’t help that we moved when she was almost 5 months old and have spent the last 4 months in limbo as we travel back and forth to go visit dad until we move again. I would get so discouraged when I would read articles that would claim that a 6 month old should be sleeping mostly through the night and my 6 month old was waking up every 2-3 hours! I was at my breaking point and I needed to find a better way.

Treat Your Eyes

If you have been a follower for a few years now, you may have remembered when I had an accident with my eyes. I had visited my family and I forgot my contact case. I used an old contact case and I got a severe eye infection. I spent many hours with the eye doctor for the following two months as we worked to get my eyes back to normal. It was an experience that really made me learn that I should ever take my eyes or my vision for granted.

Custom Willy Wonka Children’s Book

This post was sponsored by Wonderbly. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

We absolutely love Roald Dahl books! Several years ago, we bought a full set of his books and have been reading them one at a time. The very first book that we read was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Soon our obsession with all things Wonka began. That is why I was thrilled when I learned that I could get a custom Willy Wonka book for our family!

We loved reading this book! It was a total surprise to my daughter that it was a custom book. We started reading the book and then she saw her name! Then she saw her sister’s name! It was so fun to be able to turn each page to see each custom part of the story that was made just for us! [Read more…]
