I love trying new products.  I'm kind of a product junkie.  One of the great things about trying lots of beauty/makeup products is that eventually you find one product that amazes you so much that you can't go back to anything else.  It becomes your go-to product.  And although I love to try new things, there is something comforting and easy about having that one product that you KNOW is going to do the trick.  I am always on the lookout for my next go-to produ...

Recently I've been prepping for baby and getting the most out of my Amazon Prime membership ifyouknowwhatimean.  I've been able to find some items that will make post partum life a little more comfortable and convenient and while I was perusing I found some really great fashion, travel & everyday finds!  I've been so impressed with what I've received that I've listed my top 7 finds for you.  The best part?  Everything is under $30!

If there is one thing that I have absolutely ZERO natural ability to do, it's painting my nails (and folding a fitted sheet...seriously how???).  I tend to rely (heavily) on my local nail salon to keep my manicure lookin' fresh but the reality is I can't always find the time to get them done at the salon.  I don't love the look of my nails without ANYTHING on them so I've been forced to perfect my at-home manicure.  

I naturally lean toward neutral colors when I do it myself becaus...

Hey guys!!  I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July!  Independence Day is my favorite holiday.  I just love this country so much and I love celebrating the American way (ie: eating lots of yummy food, baseball games, pool parties, fireworks, flags, etc).  Onto what I've got for you today....I've found some DYNO-MITE hair products lately that were just begging to be shared.  So without further they are!

Keeping my skin looking fresh and healthy has always been a top priority for me.  My mom started me young with my first ever Clinique skin care regimen (thanks, mom) and I've been religious about my skin ever since.  In my mid-20s I added facials to help maintain great skin and that's when I started seeing my esthetician Alicia.  She has been my skin care guru ever since!  She owns Prana Esthetics in Atlanta and has been in the business for over 32 years.  She is simply...

These 5 beauty products and 1 makeup pouch have made it into heavy rotation in my beauty routine for good reason!

1. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Illumination Powder: I purchased this as part of a package because right now that's the only way you can get it.  (Side Note: this package is awesome and at a super deal, I would recommend purchasing it and using all of the products that come with it).  I cannot WAIT until the pressed pow...

I truly believe you get what you pay for when it comes to consumer products but there is something to be said about convenience and science.  Science has made it possible for so many products to be just as good (if not better) than a lot of their higher-end counterparts.  On the other hand, convenience drives a lot of my decisions these days as the mom of a busy toddler.  Gone are the days when I could casually browse the beauty aisles at Nordstrom.  Now it's mostly an all out race to the finish...

I am always on the hunt for the next can't-live-without-it beauty product.  I have favorites that I come back to again and again and I love adding to that collection.  Life is so much easier when you find those go-to products.  I have found a couple of great ones in this batch so let me tell you a little bit about why I love them each of them.

Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream: This is a great every day face cream.  I gave the discovery kit from Tul...

Here's the deal - most days I don't get around to putting on makeup.  With a traveling husband and busy toddler always on the move, I'm lucky to get 5 minutes to get dressed (THANK YOU BUBBLE GUPPIES).   I do manage, however, to pull together a fun little outfit most days thanks to the fact that "athleisure" is now considered appropriate everyday attire.

So here's to mornings.  At least you can look like you made it to the gym?

The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to have a nightly bedtime beauty routine.  Gone are the days of coming home and crashing full-faced makeup into the pillow and waking up looking like I meant to have that tousled hair and smoky eye at 10am.  I forget what sleeping until 10am feels like.  Is it heaven?  Do angels sing to you?  Do you wake up with tears in your eyes because your slumber was so beautiful?
