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 […]
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 […]
Y’all, Fall is around the corner and I am freaking out! We’ve been under 100° all week long and are supposed to drop below 90° by Friday! *insert happy dance* Fall makeup trends are some of my favorite! Smokey eye shadow, grungy eyes, vampy lips – SO GORGEOUS. A huge Fall trend is warm eye shadows, but I know not everyone feels comfortable with oranges and reds, so I cane up with this. This look is mainly neutral with a little bit of orange smudged on the lower lash line. The neutral colors make it more wearable for everyday and […]
If you’re a mom, there’s something I want you to know: you’re doing a great job.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that Derek and I embarked on a new adventure about five weeks ago. We switched over to the ketogenic diet. If you’ve never heard of it before, there’s lots of info out on the interwebz. YouTube and Pinterest are great resources for lots of information on this diet. To sum it up, the keto diet is high fat, moderate protein, and low carb. One of the most fun parts has been trying new recipes. We’ve tried a lot, because Derek and I like a varied menu. We’ve really enjoyed keto versions […]
Oh no – someone from a direct sales company has set their sights on you. Maybe they friended you on Facebook or had approached you in public. You start to sweat.
I’ve always worn makeup. It was something that naturally happened in my life because my mom always wore makeup. I still remember my first makeup brush set that I got for Christmas in middle school. And if I’m being honest, I still use a few 🙈🙊 But when 9th grade me started wearing makeup, I never could have guessed it would become a passion and hobby of mine. After graduating high school, I went through a phase where I wore significantly less makeup. Between working split shifts and going to college during the day, I just needed to simplify my […]
Spoiler alert: I love it!
Okay, we already established yesterday that it’s been awhile. So much has changed and I wanted to take some time to address those things on a platform that allows for lots of explanation. Summer Break Summer is a unique time for our family. With Derek being a teacher, he’s home. It’s a big adjustment for him. We both spent a lot of time delving into our personal hobbies: me with makeup and him with drumming. We spent a lot of time swimming, listening to music, and lots of Pinterest activities. At the end of summer break, Derek also started his […]
Time in one area is time away from another. – Pamela Shaw You guys, I know it’s been awhile, but this post is going to somewhat explain my absence of posts. I know I’m not the only mom in the world who feels overwhelmed. I’m in about a gajillion Facebook groups and all of them are overflowing with moms who are at their breaking point. Moms who are working hard, day in and day out, and are exhausted. They are mentally drained and physically touched out. They are wrought with anxiety and depression and turning to wine to cope. If […]
