Gift Guide for Makeup Lovers

Gift Guide for Makeup Lovers

Now, if you aren’t into makeup, venturing into the world of makeup for the sake of a gift for someone else can be intimidating. Trust me – I’ve seen the panicked look in my husband’s eyes as he realizes he has to go into a Sephora or Ulta without me to buy me a gift.


Delicious Keto Soups

Delicious Keto Soups

My husband and I are soup people. We love a delicious soup to warm our souls during the bracing, bitter winter. Just kidding. We live in Phoenix and the coldest it gets is like, 28 degrees Fahrenheit during the dead of night. BUT STILL! We love soup! I love how easy they are to make and it creates a cozy atmosphere and leftovers are almost always more delicious. So it was important to us that we found some great ketogenic friendly soups this winter season! I’m thrilled to say that we have!   Broccoli Cheese Soup This recipe is so […]


Mary Kay Makeup Must-Haves | Brand Loyalty

Mary Kay Makeup Must-Haves | Brand Loyalty

All righty, let’s talk about something that often goes hand-in-hand with direct sales companies: brand loyalty. Brand loyalty is a simple concept: it means that you only use products from that brand. All network marketing companies encourage brand loyalty, and some representatives will tell you it’s a must. Brand loyalty shows that you’re confident enough in your product to use it yourself on the daily. It’s also a great lead in. For example, if someone compliments you on an item from your line because you’re wearing it, it’s easy to strike up a conversation about it. Let’s just get it out […]

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, […]


Meal Planning | Why and How

Meal Planning | Why and How

Meal planning was always something that sounded really complicated and time consuming to me. You mean, I have to plan a menu and shopping list before going grocery shopping?? But my husband and I had a lot of issues revolving around food in our household, so it was time to change things up! I’m going to share with you why I started meal planning, so that you can better gage if it would be a good fit for you, as well as how I meal plan. Why? Have you ever had the dinner fight with your spouse? Ya know, when it’s dinner time […]


My Favorite Eyeshadow Brushes

My Favorite Eyeshadow Brushes

While the quality of a product matters a great deal, the quality of the tool being used to work with the product matters a great deal more. That’s basically a complicated way of saying that if your brushes suck, so will the way your eyeshadow looks. It doesn’t matter if you’re working with luxury eyeshadows, crappy brushes will destroy your look – guaranteed. But the good news is that quality brushes don’t have to be expensive! There are lots of affordable brushes out there that perform very well, and that’s exactly what we’re going to talk about today. Brushes that rock […]


Why I’m Thankful for the Bible

Why I’m Thankful for the Bible

I’m in a very different season of my life than I’ve ever been. I’m officially referring to it as The Spiritual Drought of 2017. I haven’t been a Christian for very long, and I would call this season my first real spiritual trial. It started when my daughter was born in January of 2016 – I was diagnosed with postpartum depression and things haven’t been the same since.


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!


2017 Halloween Looks

2017 Halloween Looks

This Halloween season, I really delved into creating Halloween looks. This was a first for me, as I usually stick to traditional makeup looks; however, I really found myself enjoying it! Really allowing my creative juices to flow felt great and I loved the amount of focus and concentration each look took. As a mom, I do too many things mindlessly or while on auto-pilot – so it felt good to use some brain power. Just as a disclaimer, I am not at all trying to make it out like these are original looks. I drew inspiration from several different […]


Review: Mary Kay Liquid Eye Liner Pen

Review: Mary Kay Liquid Eye Liner Pen

Let me just start off by explaining how weird I am. I mean, at least in this one instance – ain’t nobody got the time for me to actually tackle that entire can of worms. Okay, so, I sell Mary Kay, right? Which means I obviously believe and stand by the products, right? So I can’t even begin to explain why I sometimes have doubts over our makeup products! We release a new product and I’m like, “ehh, it can’t be THAT good” and then I don’t order it for myself until months later. This rings true for makeup because […]
