When Your Day Doesn’t Go as Planned

A quick note on my day today.  I spent the weekend in Michigan hosting my sister’s Bridal Shower.  It was a great time and went really well.  I had to get to the airport this morning by 6am EST (which is 5am “my time”).  I spent the night at my mom’s house in the bedroom… Continue reading When Your Day Doesn’t Go as Planned

At Least I Try, Right?

Some moms can do it all, and some moms try really hard.  I fall in to the second bucket.  During the weekends, for everyone’s sanity, I try to get the kids out of the house to do something fun in between breakfast and lunch.  Those 4 hours are pretty much the longest hours of the… Continue reading At Least I Try, Right?

Please Tell Me I Do Not Suck as a Mom

I am writing this blog post today to put it out there.  I feel like things like this happen to the best of us moms, even though we try our hardest to be the best moms possible and not let anything bad ever happen to our kids.  I am writing this so I can get… Continue reading Please Tell Me I Do Not Suck as a Mom

Safe Skin Sunday – Lipstick!

Many of you probably notice that I always wear lipstick.  Harlow also notices that I always wear lipstick, and wants to be like Mommy and wear lipstick, too. Most conventional lipstick may contain an unsafe level of lead. The last federal law governing the cosmetics industry was passed in 1938 – more than 40 years… Continue reading Safe Skin Sunday – Lipstick!

Lies Moms Tell on Mondays

If you are a working mom like me, you look forward to going in to work on Monday where you can have a small break from all of the demands that the little people you created (or acquired when you got married) put on you.  You come in, put your lunch in the fridge, grab… Continue reading Lies Moms Tell on Mondays

Safe Skin Sunday – Foundation!

As I have fully transitioned my skincare products to items that are safer for my health and have done wonders for my skin, I have also slowly started transitioning my makeup.  I used to rely on a popular foundation that had very full coverage to help even out my skin tone and hide any blemishes… Continue reading Safe Skin Sunday – Foundation!

How I Manage to Fit Work Outs In

I worked out two days this week!  I know it’s only Thursday, and I have a few days left, but I feel confident saying that I am not going to work out anytime between now and Monday.  I know two days a week is not ideal, but it is better than zero days a week,… Continue reading How I Manage to Fit Work Outs In

Go-To Summer Skincare Products!

I am always looking for safer skincare options.  Your skin is your largest organ so you should be just as concerned about what you put IN your body as what you put ON your body.  A lot of times, products that have a “better for you”  “safe” “organic” “natural” label to them don’t really work… Continue reading Go-To Summer Skincare Products!
