The Product that Cured my Oily Skin

I’ve had oily skin for as long as I can remember. Like, not the cute, dewy oily skin either. Like, the bad, acne-prone, greasy oily skin. It’s plagued me since I was 12 years old. Acne followed me up until high school when I went on Accutane. Even so, years later, I continued to have oily skin and struggle with break outs. It was maddening and discouraging being in your mid-20’s and still struggling with acne! And then along came keto! The ketogenic diet pretty much healed my acne. I was shocked, because I grew up always being told that […]


5 Chores Your Toddler Can Do

In the five million mom groups I’m in on Facebook, one of the most popular topics is chores. Moms are asking all kinds of questions about chores! What kind of chores does your kid do? When did you start having them do chores? Do you help them? Do you pay them? What are some age-appropriate chores for my x year old? Moms have some burning questions about chores! My oldest is just shy of three years old, so I always thought those chore questions didn’t pertain to me… until I really started thinking about it. They totally do! I can have her […]

So You Wanna Join a Direct Sales Company… | Things to Consider Before Signing Up

So You Wanna Join a Direct Sales Company… | Things to Consider Before Signing Up

Disclaimer: this post is not about whether or not direct selling companies are scams or a pyramid scheme. This post is for people who are considering entering into a contract with a company but want to weigh the options first. Any rude or negative comments will be deleted. I think it’s safe to say that direct sales are on the rise. Almost everyone has their hand in one company (or two). I mean, that’s really easy to do when there are so many to pick from nowadays. There’s cosmetics, purses, clothes, toiletry/bath products, sex toys, candles, kitchen gadgets, nail care, […]


Review: Mary Kay Blending Sponge – A Firmer, Better Blender

Review: Mary Kay Blending Sponge – A Firmer, Better Blender

Lots of things exist on a spectrum. Beauty sponges do not. Beauty sponges are either good or horrid. There is no in between. If you’re a makeup junkie (#guilty), you know this. The two main stand outs are the Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (the one I used to use). However, almost every other brand has released a beauty sponge, and I was excited when Mary Kay announced they were going to be releasing one!


Travel Makeup Bag

Travel Makeup Bag

Traveling with makeup can be such a headache! And travel makeup bags can be so expensive! And for how expensive they are, they seem to be rather small. You get maybe two pouches, which 1) doesn’t hold much and 2) means that a lot of your stuff is thrown in together. Maybe it’s just a weird compulsion of mine, but I hate when all my stuff is mixed. If I’m looking for a hair tie, I don’t wanna be rifling through my 25 pounds of makeup! Fortunately, I have found the perfect makeup bag! This roll up bag is by […]


My New Vanity!

My New Vanity!

If you follow me on Instagram (@kalynfoggy), then you know that one of my dreams recently came true! Since getting married, I’ve been doing my makeup at a bathroom counter. In our apartment, I stood at the sink and had to pack away my growing collection everyday because there wasn’t enough counter space to leave it out. When we purchased a house in 2015, our master bathroom had a small vanity space next to the sink. It meant I was able to sit while doing my makeup, but my collection had grown too big to put away and take out […]


Summer Makeup Hacks

With summer right around the corner – you guys, it’s supposed to be 104 on Friday 😠 – it was time for me to update my makeup for summer. Because when it does get to 112 degrees outside, I’m not going to want to be wearing much makeup or spend much time doing it.  Here’s what I’ll look like, for the most part, when I do my makeup this summer. Some things will vary, sure, but this is it.  The biggest changes are my foundation and the fact that I don’t wear eye shadow.  Hack #1: CC Cream/Foundation Combo Can I […]
