I … am a skincare junkie. I love it. I spend an inordinate amount of time searching about skincare, looking up trends, perusing beauty stores online, and generally obsessing over ways to stop the clock and bring out my clearest, brightest skin. In fact, I’m wearing a sheet mask as a type this, and I just spent waaaay too much money on a special light-up doodad that’s supposed to give me the perfect “at-home spa experience” (shhhh … don’t tell my husband.) And don’t even get me started on r/skincareaddiction #IYKYK Over the last 25+ years, my routine has consisted of the bare minimum all the way to the 10-step Korean skincare system and everything in between. I’ve used only all-natural, organic products. I’ve used...
As the title of this piece suggests when it comes to my hair I. AM. LAZY. And it's not just the “mom who has too much on her plate” lazy.  No, I can’t use that as an excuse because I have always been this way. My mind literally boggles at the people who somehow manage to shower, blow-dry their hair, AND THEN use a curling iron to perfect their coiffure all before they start their day. Even when I worked a 9-5 job I couldn’t be bothered. It was just so much work.  Before work! Don’t get me wrong, I fully support this full-on lifestyle if that’s what you want and like. You do you, boo. And ya'll are great at it! But, I...
“I’m not afraid of heights, have you seen my shoes?” – Carrie Bradshaw When I was in high school, messy buns were in. Girls wanted to give the illusion that they rolled out of bed with a beautiful, messy bun. In reality, it took 30 minutes to curate the perfect messy bun. No one wanted to look like they were “trying too hard.” We’ve come a long way from those times. Magnetic eyelashes, fun eyeshadow palettes, and self-tanner are all normal topics of conversation, now. Yet, as a mom who enjoys lots of makeup and heels, I still find there’s a common tone of “Oh my gosh, who has time to do all that?” in mom world when it comes to dressing...
Full-coverage, demi, sports, balconette, deep plunge, push-up, bralette ... Love them or hate them, bras are a wardrobe staple. Bras are foundational pieces in many senses, yet so many women despise them. We're doing ourselves a disservice when we spend a lot on fabulous clothes and then pair them with a less than fabulously fitting bra. I’m here to give you a little something to think about and help the humble bra earn a little more respect.  A long time ago, in what feels like another life, I worked as a fitter in a bra store. It was actually a pretty rewarding, fun job and I learned a lot! Basics Bras are sized by a number and a letter, the number is...
The news that we needed to baby and pamper our eyebrows hit us about six years ago. Now, we’re onto eyelashes. Being a former pageant girl, I’m no newbie to the world of fake lashes. I was wearing them at 16 every weekend for various events when people I went to school with thought that meant you were “trying too hard.” I’m glad we’re past that. I love that anything goes these days: messy hair, bright lips, bell bottoms, crop tops, bodycon dresses, etc. I love that the days of being criticized for “trying too hard" are past us. I mean, girls were spending 30 minutes on a messy bun in 2013 to make it look like they weren’t even trying...
