A few things I'm loving in January

Hey Everyone!!!! Hope you have had an amazing month! January has been a great start to the new year. I figured I'd blog about a few things I'm loving right now!

adidas ultra boost

Ok ladies and gents, this may not be the best picture but these are the best shoes!!! Promise! Here's a little pro tip, go to the adidas outlet for these. They sell these exact ones for $180 at dicks. They were the same price at the outlets but they have 30%-50% off of all the shoes and there's an additional coupon for $25 off a $125 purchase (it's an online coupon for Simon outlets). So it the beginning of the year every one's trying to get into shape, here's your new gym/running shoes!

Orange blossom face wash from young living is the end all be all to me. I have tried literally hundreds of face washes! I was an avid clinique user but guys seriously when I turned 30 my face was like whoa girl we are 15 again let's break out! This was my face's saving grace. I will never ever go back, after three years of using orange blossom I can honestly say that!

I have a whole post devoted to this stuff it's absolutely incredible... My lashes are so much better now then before, in the past five months I have had incredible results and its something that will definitely be sticking around in my beauty arsenal. Check out my blog post review here !!!

peach bubly

Next up peach bubly, ok seriously guys... Sparkling water is how I kicked my soda addiction, I haven't had a coke in almost 3 years... Shocking I know! This helps me stay on track for real guys! This flavor is everything, EVERYTHING!!! I'm all about the peach flavor and this is much better for me then stopping by Starbs for a white citrus peach iced tea with hwc... #ketolife

I could go on and on but I said I would only go over a few things!!!

Until next time loves,

Grande Lash Review

Hey Lovies!!! So I can't keep quiet any longer about this wonderful lash serum that I've been using...

 I have had lash extensions for the past 2 years and to say that they put some strain on your natural lashes would be an understatement!!! I have always had super shot baby lashes, like 10 coats of mascara later maybe you could see a little somethin somethin...! So lash extensions obviously were calling my name until... duh duh duh... They stared looking less and less full with every fill (insert scream) so what do I do right?!?! I can't stop the lashes that's clearly not an option, I can't go back to that no lash life but something had to be done!

So when my lash lady told me about grande lash I was to say the least skeptical, I mean I had tried these things before and they never worked.... This one though, this one was safe to use with extensions so of obviously I'm all in... Now to give you an idea of my natural lashes, when I went in the first time she had to use mostly 9's but the very longest she could use on my lashes were 12's, seriously nothing longer would stay on.. Now after three months with this serum, this wonderfully amazing grande lash.. I'm happy to report she's now using 16's on my lashes with no problem.... Guys this stuff is so legit and I'm happy to report the fullness is better then ever!!!

           So this was back in august when I started the serum and also right after a fill 
           vs today five days after a fill



So as you can see I'm a pretty satisfied customer! I will never go back. I actually use it twice a day and it's supposed to only last three months but I still have some left in augusts bottle. You apply it just like you would apply liquid eyeliner. you can get your here directly from the grande lash website or here at sephoria!!!

Let me know if you have tried this before or if you have a different lash serum you prefer! 
Until next time,

2019 here we come!

Wow!! It's been forever.... Like two years, I'm probably talking to myself forever!!!! I mean I'm a mom so I'm pretty much used to talking to myself anyway..... LOL!

So life has been CRA-ZEEE the past few years! I mean everyone has their own things going on lets just say I'm glad it's a new year and I'm committed to making 2019 my best year yet!

I remember starting this blog simply because I liked makeup and because my son was starting kindergarten and I wanted something to distract me from sending my first baby to school...

Now this coming year my third baby is about to start school and I'm like here you go take all my kids... hahaha!!! Just kidding but stay at home moms you know what I'm saying!!

I love my kids more then anything but it's defiantly easy to get sucked into this thought sucking vortex of I'm just a mom....

FIRST OF ALL..... No you are not just a mom, we need to stop looking at ourselves as not enough because we stay home with our kids.... Now this is not at all to discredit working moms, I've done both and I can honestly say that sometimes being a stay at home mom can be a lonely place sometimes... Just like being a working mom can come with (at least it did for me) immense guilt for feeling like you are missing out on your kids lives.

So I'm going through a re-branding of sorts... I want to pick this blog up and build a community of moms and women in general that can lift each other up, support each other when the days look and feel dark...
That can support each other through the mom guilt of both having to work and wishing we had to work!

So this is me, talking from my little corner of the Internet... If you are still interested in following I will be posting about

-Aging Backwards
-Building our empire
-Bossing Up
-Building a House
-Chalk Painting

That should pretty much cover it... I hope you guys stick around.... 
Until next time,
