Last weekend we celebrated Jaxon’s 2nd birthday party and I honestly will never understand where the time is going. I swear now that he is here I feel like every time I blink my eye another year has flown by and the baby blues are starting to hit me.Read More
If I am being utterly and completely honest, this year was like fitting 5 years of growth into one year and it was fucking brutal.
I feel like this was one of those year's that prepares you for the best years of your life. You appreciate things more after struggle, and loss. You bend when you should've broke and you get back up.
Something great is coming, I can feel it. I don’t know what it is but it is going to be good.Read More
Happy Almost Christmas Babes!
Christmas is literally next week! I can’t believe it! And soon enough the year will be over and it will be on to the next, 2019 here we come.
If I stuck to my plan for once that means I am actually done with all of my Christmas shopping possibly minus a couple of gift cards.
If not, I am running around like a crazy person hoping that I am able to get a few last minute things while the stores are full of people and I am going crazy. Lord, help me.
I have devised this plan I will have to tell you guys about next year in case the next couple of weeks don't go as plan. I have a way to start getting some of my blogging stuff done and it is all thanks to a little smart planning and thinking.
We shall see.
I just wanted to share with you a couple of easy go-to mom OOTD’s for Christmas Day, look I am all about looking fab and chic but if I am being realistic I just want to be comfortable and look cute.
I think I want to start a tradition with E for us to do once nice dinner before the holidays, it gets pretty crazy and I feel like I always need some down time and also an excuse to wear a cute outfit that doesn’t involve converse or vans.
But if you have to chase little one’s and still want to remotely look styled and cute, here are a couple of outfits I styled.
As you know I am a pure advocate for skin care, because I absolutely love baring it all and not wearing makeup most days.
I am incredibly lucky that, I don’t have a lot of breakouts or acne spots unless it is that particular time of the month.
Lately I have been trying to make my skin care routine as clean as possible so that I avoid putting harsh chemicals on my skin, because I feel like a lot of our health issues aren’t just reliant on what we put in our body but on it as well.
When it came time to have J we had a long struggle of years of fertility issues, taking clomid, doing IUI’s, IVF in Mexico which all failed and then in 2016 we finally were pregnant after I believe almost 6 years of actively trying with fertility.
I had finally given up and wanted to take a break before we saw doctors again, and then a couple months later found out we were pregnant.
I figured I should start looking at all the things I am putting in my body, having in my environment [airborne, etc.], and using on my body.
You start to evaluate a lot of things in order to pin point what is causing issues in your life, and while a lot of what we put in our body effects us, on occasion what we put especially on our skin can as well.
I haven’t talked much about it on here, but I am a distributor for Young Living Oils and without going into a long rant in this post oils has helped me a lot with emotional, mental, and physical health. I can’t even begin to say enough great things about it.
So a couple of orders ago, I picked up the Young Living Mint Facial Scrub. I absolutely love scrubs because I feel like it helps a lot get rid of things on the surface that face wash doesn’t.
The scrub has this minty refreshing tingly sensation as you apply it and leaves my face incredibly smooth as well, just like a babies butt.
This isn’t something you can get at your local drug store, but through myself or another YL distributor. I went from using St. Ives and I know that this isn’t a brand that I can compare to any other quality skin care line but it worked for me for years and now I have decided to change over to the YL scrub.
It was brought to my attention after a reader saw my IG post on this scrub that, scrubs both in skin care aren’t essentially great for every day use.
I have not done a ton of research on skin care and I am no where near a professional in the matter, I am just stating what I use on my skin that helps me keep my skin free of acne scars, and dead skin cells.
I have been doing a lot of work on “me” this year because an incredibly shitty situation left me feeling sorry for myself and I needed to get out of feeling this way. I have never wanted to be one of those people who felt sorry for themselves, I have always wanted to be a strong independent woman because I was raised that way.Read More
I am a firm believer in the power of a good mascara and a good coverage BB cream, my go-to for a while now has been Its Cosmetics in the shade deep. The brand has really good coverage and the formula they have seems to blend into my different skin shades naturally.Read More
A few months ago, I lost my dog and it made me start re-thinking a lot of things. He meant a lot to me and I just realized how much time I didn't spend with him before he was gone because I was too busy during nap time trying to film a makeup video, or photograph an outfit.Read More
Prior to becoming parents we hardly did date night, we always considered anytime we were together was date night. We used to drive all over the city just to see new places, find new places to eat, and just to drive around and talk.Read More
YAY! The Jaclyn Hill X Morphe Vault Collection launched last month and when I received it I, unfortunately, had to wait a few weeks before I had some time to play in all of it.Read More
I feel like every single time I write these post it is all about how fast time is flying. I feel like it was yesterday when it was getting closer to me having to go back to work I literally had a breakdown, if I would’ve known then that it was the “baby blues”. I wouldn’t have felt so bad about being in that emotional space .Read More
I have been doing my best to upgrade my closet slowly, unfortunately there have been so many things that I see in person or online that I just "have to have". We recently visited our local Forever 21 and I found this really cute sweater for $15, I mean how do you pass that up?Read More
Sorry, the title was a play on years of having to watch Austin Powers, lol.
I recently visited Austin, TX with one of my girlfriends and we had a blast. I don't think. I have ever walked away from a weekend with Teresa upset that I went on the trip.
We have been to LA, Austin, Waco, Miami, Atlanta, and Las Vegas together. We base our trips on food, and the hotel.
I am going to recap our Austin trip today, and if you are planning a quick trip to Austin I have a few recommendations!Read More
