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.
Hi friend! I hope you are having a fabulous week! I’ve been in New York since Monday for an Amazon Livestream creator event and it’s been a great trip. I’ve especially loved getting to meet and have face-to-face time with other women in my industry. There’s no substitute for that in-person girl time.
Hi friend! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s day yesterday! I gave each of my kids a new basketball and a chocolate treat, plus heart-shaped sugar cookies. We also picked out flowers and a sweet card for my mom. God bless her- she also helped make sure my kids had something for me too- my favorite chocolates! 🙂
Today, I’m sharing some of my recent Amazon beauty products with you, including my trial run with four different tubing mascaras. I found one I really love, plus one less expensive one that I’ve been putting on in the mornings before the gym.
Hi friend! Are you in full Thanksgiving mode yet?! We’ll be celebrating the holiday at my brother and sister-in-law’s house and the whole menu is pot luck so no one has a super heavy load. Y’all know my brother is the grill master and he’ll be cooking the turkey. Gotta love a man that can cook!
SEPHORA HOLIDAY SAVINGS
And you know we’ll be shopping the Black Friday online sales after the dessert sets in! I always love seeing what deals my sisters are after and this year they can buy gifts and stock up on beauty faves at Kohl’s.
Hi friend! I hope you’re having a great week! Brian and I went and saw Maverick last night and it was really good! We went to an IPIC theater so that we could be extra comfy and enjoy dinner and a drink while we watched. It was really a fun night! And a way to beat the heat!
Thank you to Kohl’s and Shopstyle Collective for sponsoring today’s post!
Hi friend! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! I’m popping in to share a Spring Beauty finds at Kohl’s! The Sephora collection at Kohl’s is on FLASH SALE, and you’ll get 30% off all Sephora Collection sale items!
Brian and I are heading to Cozumel for Spring Break next week and these goodies are coming with!
Hi friends! Did you have a great weekend? Brian and I spent the weekend in Galveston and it was such a nice getaway. Galveston is just about an hour south of Houston, so it’s easy to get to, but you feel like you’re a world away. It was really good to get my man all to myself for a couple of days- and the weather was perfect!
Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! And Happy Father’s Day! Our kids wouldn’t be who they are without him and we’re so very grateful! The day is always bittersweet for me since my own dad passed way too young. We miss him terribly and it feels sad that he didn’t get to meet two of his grandchildren. We keep his memory alive though, and talk about ‘grandpa’ all the time. If you’re missing your own dad right now, I’m with you. ♥
On another note, I’ve been a busy little bee packing, organizing and cleaning, and getting ready for our trip to Florida.
Hi friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! I had a super busy Monday, starting with my favorite workout class and followed by trying to get all.the.things done, and squeeze in a doctor’s appointment! Remind me not to make doctor’s appointments on a Monday please!
Today, I’m inviting you to get ready with me and I’m sharing my everyday makeup routine, plus a Tarte Makeup Sale! Many of the products I use daily to pretty myself up are from Tarte, and I feel good knowing that their brand is female founded and their products are always cruelty-free.
Sometimes I feel like you’ve already seen most of my home decor since I haven’t done any major room makeovers in a long time. But, I can still share how I’m organizing everything, and little changes here and there. I have ahome tour here if you’re interested.
Just a hop skip and a jump to the weekend now! Every other weekend when I have some extra time to myself I like to do a leisurely evening beauty routine.
Most days are so busy and my night routine is as quick as possible- just wash, apply a night serum, moisturizer, lash & lip serum, and hit the sack! But Sunday’s I prefer to be slow and intentional. It’s wonderfully indulgent to take time to pamper your face and body and nurture yourself.
In this post, I’m going to share my full evening beauty routine,
Hi friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine kicked off early on Thursday with a girls’ birthday celebration for Tarah at Backstreet Cafe, then a couples dinner on Friday at A’Bouzy, and Saturday night we ate at Bombay Brasserie. I’m crazy for their Chicken Tikka Masala, and after eating Indian food in Mexico, was continuing to crave it at home!
I usually meal prep and eat my meals at home, but Houston has some amazing restaurants and it’s fun to get dressed and go out once in awhile! I will have some new healthy meal prep ideas for you tomorrow,
Hi friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! The Monday after Spring Break was a rough one, but we made it! And I think we’ve finally adjusted to the time change. I love when it stays lighter later- we were able to go on a family bike ride after dinner yesterday- so nice!
Hi friends! I blinked and we’re almost at the end of the week! With Spring Break, this whole week has felt like the weekend, and coming home yesterday on a Wednesday threw me off track! We ate the best Mexican food in San Antonio, and had double scoops of ice cream (Bluebell coffee and salted caramel in a waffle cone for me!) Sooo good!
And, to get back on track, I ordered groceries right before we left and already have my fridge stocked with healthy groceries again! That feels like a great start?? to the week!
Hi friends! Welcome to a fresh, new week! Did you have a good Valentine’s Day? Brian gave me the most beautiful red roses I’ve ever seen. ♥ They are so big and fully opened and just gorgeous. He had them delivered and I was so surprised! Usually when my doorbell rings, it’s cardboard boxes or a bunch of kiddos. 🙂
I gave him a heart-shaped box of chocolate caramels and wrote him a card. It was our first Valentine’s Day together and so lovely to just be in each other’s lives. I hope you had a wonderful day and felt the love.
Hi friends! I’m popping in with a quick winter skincare saver tip for you today! Our typical hot and humid Houston weather has turned cold and dry and my skin isn’t used to it. I’ve noticed that my skin been much drier and flaky, especially at my cheeks and on forehead. It tends to feel tight in those areas too. Whenever I need a boost of hydration to my skin, I make a ‘cocktail’ with just two ingredients.
MY 2-INGREDIENT COCKTAIL FOR DRY SKIN
At night, after cleansing my face and patting almost dry, I apply my skincare cocktail.
Hi friends! Just a hop, skip and a jump to the weekend now! I’m ready for it! We have nothing on the agenda, and that’s fine by me! If the weather cooperates, we’ll walk to the park and get some fresh air, and have a Friday night movie night!
