OK, so I am not going to lie, I love this moisturizer, but it’s just too hot to wear this on my face right now. The temperatures are in the triple digits here, and I just can’t wear anything on my face besides some toner, hyaluronic serum and a spritz of my Fix+. Honestly, this product is a fantastic product for the winter months when your skin is going to be begging for this level of hydration.Continue Reading
Ok, so it’s taken me a very long while to get around to trying this mascara. For those of you who know me, I am a total makeup junkie! Mascara included! I have so many different tubes of mascara in my drawer, on my sink, and in my makeup bags that it’s sort of sickening. I love a mascara for awhile and then I am desperately looking for another one to replace it with. I never seen to get all my needs met. So I figured, why not?Continue Reading

After losing 25lbs, I’ve become very health conscious. I have changed my eating habits, and am currently dealing with portion control, and eating leaner and greener. I make sure to get at least 8 servings of fruits and veggies a day, and I work out 4-5 times a week. I just decided to make my life and my health a priority. It was that simple. Once I decided to take care of myself, everything fell into place. So I have decided to compile a list of some of my Health Goals for the remaining last months of this year. I know I can hit these goals because it’s important to me, and making myself and my health a priority was all I needed to get me jump started.Continue Reading
I recently got the chance to review some amazingly adorable baby headbands for the blog. I absolutely love dressing my little one up in headbands and hairclips, and all the cute stuff, but Abbey pretty much just likes to get her picture taken and then I find the hair accessories later stuffed in drawers and under furniture. It’s sort of sad for a mom who’s a hairstylist, that her kid hates having her hair done, but what do you expect? It’s sort of just my luck.Continue Reading
With the release of Captain America 2 : The Winter Soldier last week (it dropped September 9th!), I got inspired to make some delicious treats for all the geek girls viewing parties that will definitely be happening, because Chris Evans. Actually this cookie bark is SUPER EASY to make and can totally be tweaked to match any event, season, party or theme. I love M&M’s for this bark, because they literally come in every color you would ever imagine. It makes a great party snack option, and even an adorable and fantastic homemade gift for the holidays!Continue Reading
Firstly, I am completely obsessed with Coconut Oil and use it every day in not only cooking, but in my beauty routine too! If you don’t already have a tub of it, stock up! Thera Vita makes an AMAZING brand of Coconut Oil called Paradise, that I highly recommend. It’s organic, non-bleached, non-deodorized, hexane and chemical free. It’s also cold pressed, which makes for an amazing creamy product. It’s just fantastic.
Aside from being a healthy alternative to butter or oil in recipes, coconut oil is an amazing beauty product for hair, skin and nails! Below I’ve compiled a few things you can do with coconut oil that might surprise you.Continue Reading
“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Dove Advanced Care Deodorant. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review.”
I first tried Dove deodorant right before my wedding. A tiny little sample came in a Bride Swag Bag I was given and it was the perfect size to put in my 911 Bride bag I had with me on my big day. I had previously been using some other brand that shall remain nameless, and I was happy, it was ok, but I just wanted something new.Continue Reading
Can I just let you know how excited I have been for the launch of The Sims™ 4? Oh. My. Gosh. I am not really a “gamer” I don’t think I would, or could put myself into the category that my husband and his gaming friends are in, but I can geek myself out on some Sims all day long. My obsession started back when the very first The Sims™ game came out. I installed that first disk, and the rest is history. I am not entirely sure what I love about The Sims™ more, nostalgia or control. Both are pretty nice. Over the years the game has evolved into something so amazing, and with each release the Create A Sim gets better and better. Honestly, Maxis and EA have out done themselves this time.Continue Reading
Last month, I did a cleanse. I did like a hardcore elimination cleanse where I cut out pretty much everything I love, dairy, gluten, sugar, caffeine and red meat. After my cleanse I felt AMAZING, 10lbs lighter and VERY HUNGRY. Something I loved about the cleanse was that it helps me curb my cravings for those things I love… and now I eat them when I want to, verses WANTING them all the time.
No elimination cleanses aren’t for everyone. They are strict and daunting and if you just want a quick cleansing verses a diet restricting week long event, I have an answer for you. Continue Reading
