Faves of the month….


I am literally obsessed with these new lipsticks. I can’t go to the store without picking up a new color. They are the perfect blend of matte and metallic.



I have always been a fan of the Aveeno skin care products. These three are my all time faves though. The calming body wash leaves my skin so smooth and fresh. I always use the stress relief lotion after my showers. Not only does it leave my skin silky smooth, but the scents of lavender, chamomile, and ylang-ylang are so relaxing. The aroma stays on my skin all day long. The positively radiant face wash is a new try for me. I have never used it before this weekend. It has proven to be crazy effective so far. My face isn’t use to having so much make-up on it every day of the week, so it has started to become really dry and flaky. I use this wash and my exfoliating pad every other day. In between those washes I simply use my regular body wash.

I purchase all of these items at Target. I highly recommend giving them a try!!

New hair…

Here’s a peek at my new hair!  I’m going to do a step by step in the morning and get a 360 video. The stack in the back is so pretty!

Step out of the comfy box….

So, I’m talking to one of my best friends about making changes to our hair and she tells me she’s afraid to step out of her comfort zone. I realized that she’s right. When did I bunker down into this cozy little box with a fear of being confident? Just because I’m a mom now and I’m struggling with weight loss does not mean that I still can’t love the skin I’m in.

I decided to take a leap today and get a pretty dramatic hair cut. I was so nervous to cut so many inches off my hair, but I went for it anyways. I love it!! I think that it gives me just the little spunk that I was missing. I love having big hair, so I got a very steep inverted bob. I can stack my layers in the back really big. Big sexy hair products are my go to when I’m styling. I am currently obsessed with the texture powder play. It gives me so much volume and it holds all day. The spray and play harder hairspray is all it takes to finish off the look for the day. If you’re interested in those products I put the links below for the cheapest prices I can find them for. I hope you love them as much as I do.

Let the fun begin…

At 6:30 this morning I was standing in my bathroom putting my face on. Braxton was still asleep and Andy hadn’t returned home from work yet. My house was completely silent and the aroma of coffee filled my kitchen. A lot of moms thrive during this time of the day. Me, not so much. I wanted so badly to climb back into bed and snuggle with my soon to be 3-year-old. This is something that I am trying to change!

I don’t think I will ever be a morning person but I would like to stick to the routine of getting out of bed while the rest of my world is still quiet. I didn’t feel rushed out the door and I didn’t have one fight with Braxton about making me late to work. I did however still manage to wear my sweater inside out all the way to work and half way through my first patient. Andy of course made a joke that my brain only works in scramble mode.

Anyways over the next few days I plan on posting about the new ideas I have been implementing in my house to keep us all on a better schedule. Our routines are switching up a bit. I’ve been creating some fun ways for Braxton to get more involved with the routines as well. I have found a few chart ideas on Pinterest and I think the one we are crafting is pretty cool. I’m excited to share it with you.

I’ve also been trying to cook more meals at home and try new recipes. My boys are so insanely picky that it makes meal planning almost impossible, but I have been spending a lot of time trying to figure out a new system. I’m hoping that you guys can throw out any ideas that you use at home to help me become more successful with this. So moms get your recipes out and please take a moment to share!!
