Ardell Magnetic Lashes | Review & How I Got Them To Work For Me

This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure here. If you follow me on my makeup Instagram account, then you may have picked up on the fact that I despise full-band false lashes. I find them absolutely uncomfortable and hate wearing them. So, to still add some drama to my looks, I’ve been using Ardell or Kiss lash trios for the last year or so. Those are comfortable to wear and I love them, but they do take quite some time to apply. So I was thrilled when I saw these Ardell magnetic lashes! They looked so easy peasy, comfortable, […]


Date Night Ideas For Parents When the Kids Are Away

Date Night Ideas For Parents When the Kids Are Away

If you follow me on Instagram – which like *ahem* you should – then you know that my daughter, Clementine, recently had her first sleep over at her grandparents’ house a few weeks ago. My husband and I had our first night of freedom since having her and – let me tell you – it was life changing. After racking our brains for date night ideas, we finally settled on what to do. We went out to dinner, came home to let our food digest, went out for dessert, came home again, and eventually ended up at the Waffle House at […]


Eyebrow Tutorial | How I Do Mine & What Products I Use

I’d say that out of everything I do, I definitely get the most comments on my eyebrows. People seem to love them, so I thought I would share my eyebrow tutorial with you guys.

Since I did record this several months ago, the products I use have changed. You can find a description of what I […]


How To Survive Motherhood Burn Out

How To Survive Motherhood Burn Out

Let’s not beat around the bush – lots of moms experience burn out. And for lots of different reasons. As a mother it’s so easy to lose yourself in being mommy. What makes it especially hard is that being mommy isn’t always fun. Most of the time it’s monotony – cleaning the same messes, saying the same things, going the same places, etc – and hard work – juggling 35 different things at one time. The monotony and relentlessness of motherhood can be draining, to put it simply. It can leave moms feeling like a zombie, like a shell of […]

Green Smoothies for Toddlers

Green Smoothies for Toddlers

I’m not sure about you, but – without a doubt – my most frustrating mom moments occur during meal times. My daughter is a very strong-willed dragon. She has lots of opinions, but she also has a speech delay and is unable to express said opinions. This makes mealtimes pretty dang tricky!  Every single meal every single day is pretty much a guessing game. Am I making something she wants? I have no clue until she refuses it and throws it on my floor. That poses multiple problems: 1) girlfriend still hasn’t eaten, 2) I have to clean my floor, […]

Bullet Journal Life Lessons

Bullet Journal Life Lessons

As weird as this may sound, I celebrated my first bullet journal-versary this month! And celebrate I did! Why? Because bullet journaling has literally turned my life around.

Now, I wake up everyday with a grateful heart, incredibly excited for where my life is going. All thanks to bullet journaling. It’s been quite the ride! It hasn’t been easy – lemme tell you – but I’ve definitely learned some very important […]
