I am in no way a fashion/ beauty blogger kind of mom. Clothes (shoes) are my passion, but when it comes to makeup I just go with easy. However, I have found some products that have improved my skin and my confidence. #1. The Ordinary - High Spreadability face primer I am a little embarrassed to admit that before a month ago I never used a primer before applying my makeup -_-  but now that I have discovered it, I am a huge fan and my makeup is so much smoother.  $7.90 at Sephora  #2. ColourPop Eye Shadow Palettes  Over the years I have tried quite a few eye shadow palettes, but these by far are my favorite. Not only are the themes...
Having painted nails is one of the few self-care indulgences that I've consistently participated in for years. There's something about having my nails done that makes me feel just a little bit sunnier. Occasionally I enjoy a mani/pedi with a girlfriend, but since having children, I can't really seem to find the time (or can't justify the cost) to take a trip to the nail salon. Most of the time I paint my nails at home and, fingers crossed, no one asks me for a snack before they're dry. During the COVID-19 quarantine, any type of self-care became pretty scarce. People are embracing their longest, gray locks, unmanicured brows, and trips to the nail salon ceased to exist for many,...
I never wore red lipstick. Over the years, I tried different shades and I always felt I looked ridiculous. I stuck with more neutral colors or no lipstick at all. Until 2014. I don’t know if it was the fact that I was finding my own with fashion, makeup and hair (finally at the age of 32) or because I was feeling fearless as we went through our first round of IVF … But I wore the red lipstick. And I loved it. Back Story… The company I work for was participating in the local university’s homecoming events, including a business skit competition. The script written by our fearless leader that year included a spoof appearance by Snow White. I am more...
  Hair. It’s something you don’t think about until it’s time to think about it. Growing up, hair was a big ordeal in my house. Afternoons would go into evenings with washing, combing, rollers, and sitting under a hair dryer while completing homework or reading. I can still feel the heat on the back of my neck from the dryer. Speaking of heat, I would really feel it every 6-8 weeks when it was time to get a relaxer, or the process to chemically straighten my hair. My mom would sit me in the kitchen and I would whine and complain while the application took place. I think I got my first one when I was around five or six, and...
Mommas, we spend so much of our time in the kid zone that we sometimes forget any other zone exist. It all begins the day they are born. You are constantly being reminded to focus on the baby's needs. To be in tune with every noise, cry, and change in poop color.  Our mothering instinct kicks in and our womanly wilds go out the window!!! Let’s not even talk about the decrease in sex drive or the ability to pee in peace, especially once they hit the toddler age. As a mom of teens and tweens, I would like to say that this kid laser focus changes naturally, but it doesn’t! The late night feedings turn into staying up watching the clock...
