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.
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!
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 […]
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 […]
One of my favorite things about the ketogenic diet is the fact that there are substitutes for just about anything. For me at least, when it comes down to sustainability of a new way of eating, not feeling deprived is key. So the fact that I can pretty much keto – yes, I do use it as a verb now – a version of anything is amazing. And if you’ve known me for any amount of time, then you know that I have a voracious sweet tooth. That little sucker has done me in time and time again, especially during […]
Let’s just jump right into it because If you feel the need to comment on someone’s appearance, friend, family, or otherwise, I want you to ask yourself this question, “Can it be fixed in five seconds?” If the answer is no, DON’T SAY IT. I repeat: 🔊 if it will take the person longer than five seconds to correct, DON’T FREAKING SAY IT! 🔊 For example, if someone has food in their teeth, it will take them five seconds to clear it out – tell them. If a girl’s skirt or dress is tucked into her underwear – tell her. […]
This is probably one of the questions I get asked most frequently. “What do you eat during the day?” I keep it pretty simple. The ketogenic diet can be pretty time consuming when it comes to food preparation, so I try to keep that to a minimum. Breakfast: iced coffee with heavy whipping cream and sugar free Torani vanilla syrup. If I know I have a really busy day coming up and don’t want to have to eat during the day, I’ll reheat two pre-made egg cups as well. Lunch: some sort of light snacking, usually consisting of deli meats […]
I have a lot of content I want to cover in this post, including a little bit about my struggle with depression, what exactly CBD oil is, how I obtained it, and my experience using CBD oil. Get a snack and a drink, because this is gonna be a long one, folks.
It’s my belief that friends want to help their friends. And if you have good friends in the direct selling (DS) business, your desire to support and encourage your friends probably extends to your friends’ businesses, right?
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 […]
