Beauty & Hair

I’m a girly girl at heart and usually feel my best when I’ve at least but on a couple coats of mascara! Most days I do a quick 7-minute makeup routine and put my hair in a topknot.  Here you’ll find my beauty and hair posts including my over-40 skincare routine, my experience with microblading (wish I’d done it sooner) and lash extensions (took them off but miss them), and my easy hair curling tutorial for loose waves.

What Order To Apply Your Skincare Products

What Order To Apply Your Skincare Products

Good morning friends! Welcome back to my blog!  I’m super pumped for today’s post because it involves one of my passions – skincare!  I truly believe that how our skin looks affects more than just our appearance, it can affect how we feel about ourselves.

When my face was breaking out and I had a lot of hyperpigmentation, I felt very self conscious.  Once my acne cleared up and my dark spots faded, I felt so much more confident in my skin!  And trust me, I didn’t really start taking good care of my skin until I turned 40,

June Beauty Haul

June Beauty Haul

Hi friends! I hope you dominated Monday and your week is off to a great start!  My Monday was super busy, catching up on chores like laundry and grocery shopping that I didn’t get done during the weekend.  And I’m also looking forward to sprucing up the landscaping around my house.  Two bushes right by my front door have died and I want to plant flowers to bring some life to the front yard.  The backyard is also in need of maintenance and weed pulling!

I’m happy y’all have been enjoying the beauty posts lately.

Good morning friends!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  It’s been raining and thunder storming like crazy here.  I thought we were gonna lose power yesterday, but thankfully, we didn’t.  The good thing is, my yard could really use the water, so that’s a positive!

Yesterday, I shared the Amazon Big Style Sale with you and I’m updating my post with the latest deals, so be sure to check back HERE so you don’t miss anything!  It’s the first sale like this Amazon has ever done that focuses exclusively on fashion,

May Beauty Haul

Good morning friends! I feel like yesterday was the most productive day I’ve had in a long time! A long weekend always throws me off! But I was determined to GSD yesterday, so I made myself get out of bed at 6:30, went for a run, got goodies for the end-of-year teacher gifts, and picked up groceries all by mid-morning! I’ll count that a win!

Today is shaping up to be just as busy!  I’ll be finishing up tomorrow’s Dressing Room post with new styles from Nordstrom and Old Navy.  But first, I wanted to let you know that the Colleen Rothschild Moisturizer Sale is LIVE NOW!

How to Keep Your Skin Hydrated & Moisturized

How to Keep Your Skin Hydrated & Moisturized

Good morning friends! I hope you enjoyed a nice, long weekend! Ours was lovely, slow paced with rain showers sprinkled in.  Sometimes those chill weekends are just what the doctor ordered!

This is the last week of school before summer break officially starts and I’m so ready!  I’m sure the kids are too.  On one hand, I like having some structure to the day, but on the other hand, it’s been pretty stressful encouraging James to keep working and making sure all of his assignments got done.  I have even more respect and love for our teachers after this!

Tips for a Natural Self Tan at Home

Hi friends!  Thanks so much for the love on Jordan’s big girl room!  I’ve been loving sharing more home content with you- you saw Jordan’s playroom here and our backyard and patio here.

If you’re looking for some organization projects, my pantry is still all neat and tidy, our organized holiday storage closet helped so much when I went to pull out the Spring Decor.

With the kids home all day, I’ve been working mostly in the dining room while James does schoolwork,

How to Get a Perfect Gel Manicure at Home (Without UV Light)

Hi friends!  How is your week going?  I’m literally forgetting what day/week of ‘at home’ we’re on, but it’s definitely become our new normal.  I know we have at least three more weeks of this and I’m okay with it, I just wish there wasn’t so much anxiousness in the air.

And I miss my friends and family.  Really bad.  My amazing group of Mom friends always gets together for birthdays and we have two special ones this month. We’ve been plotting virtual parties, but I wish I could hug their necks and get together in person!

How are you doing??

Good morning friends! Midway through the week and I’m feeling good!  It’s amazing what seeing all those little checkmarks on the chart can do for your motivation and energy!  Did you print it out and hang it on your fridge?  I’d love you to tag me @honeywerehome when you share your progress.  And, if you want me to make a blank one so you can customize it your own specific goals, let me know in the comments.

Today’s post is a double good one for you!  Along with Just the Best Sales, I’m sharing the results of my recent trip to Sephora,

Good morning Monday friends!  How was your weekend? Ours was packed with chores, baseball, basketball and most importantly, we celebrated James’ 10th birthday on Sunday!

I could go on and on about him and all of the qualities that make him so special.  But, I’ll just say he has been a JOY and DELIGHT since the day he was born and is to this day!  We love him so very much!  And I get to spend today with him to since I’m volunteering at the 4th grade field trip!

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Are you ready for the new year?!  Any fun plans for NYE?? We’ll be keeping it low key with a few friends, but I’m so excited for 2020!  I love the fresh start a new year brings, but something about it being 2020 makes it extra special. I’m ready to put 2019 in the books and welcome 2020! You too??

I hope in that last few years I’ve been able to spread my Grandma Nola’s Take Care of You message and that it’s had a positive impact on your life.

My Secret to Younger Looking Skin | Dermarolling

Thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post.

I’m super excited about today’s post because I don’t think I’ve ever written about this topic on my blog.  I’ve shared it on Stories, but you might have missed it.  I’m glad it will be here on my blog now as a handy reference for you!

My skin is nowhere near perfect #hello44, but I do my best with what I’ve been given.  I did all the wrong things in high school like slather my body in baby oil mixed with iodine and lay out in the sun for hours trying to turn my skin golden brown.

Beauty Q & A

Good morning friends!  You have no idea how much your kind messages and commiserations over Jordan starting preschool yesterday meant to me.  Jordan started out having a great day, but when we walked into the school, she got scared and started crying.  Which, of course, made me cry!

Luckily, she was allowed to bring a comfort item from home and her Lovey did make her feel better.  We waited in line with her through assembly, then walked her to her classroom where she got to hang up her new backpack, put her new lunchbox in her special cubby,

What is in My Travel Case

Hello friends! We’re continuing the vacation train today and I’m following up on the What to Pack for a Beach Vacation post with this handy “What’s in My Travel Case” post.

I like to keep this bag packed so that when I head out of town, it’s ready to go.  Of course, a few things like my eyeglasses and toothbrush (I take my fancy electric one) go in last minute.  It’s so nice not to have to worry about packing these essentials and they all fit inside this cute bag I’ve had for ages.
