A cautionary tale of why you shouldn’t touch strangers

My husband and I were out for a date. We had eaten a glorious brunch and were doing a little bit of shopping when an older lady who worked there came over and started talking to me. She was pleasant even though I’m not huge on small talk & then I continued about my business. A little while later, our paths crossed again….and one of the most awkward and embarrassing things that has EVER happened […]

My [Not So] Capsule Wardrobe

I looked into my closet and felt overwhelmed. I had plenty of clothes. In truth, much more than any one person needs, but I felt as if I had nothing to wear. And no outfits revealed themselves to me. I’ve done this dance over and over again since I had our son back in 2013. Gone were the days of effortlessly wearing anything because my body had changed. It had changed majorly, but my wardrobe […]

Lessons in Sugar Waxing

This past week I attempted to do a thing that I failed at tremendously. I spent 3 full days failing before the fourth day where I finally got it right. What did this teach me? That no one who has ever succeeded got there without a few set backs and that it’s the perseverance and persistence to keep moving forward despite said set-backs that is most important. I wanted to make Sugar Wax — the […]

LipSense gave me something special & I want to share it with you!

What was it about LipSense that moved me so much that within a week I had decided I wanted to sell it? Was it how hassle free it is? Sure, that’s nice. I love that my color really does last all day long and that my lips are healthier than they’ve ever been, but there was something more.  I had never wanted to mess with lipstick. Honestly, I felt foolish wearing it, like I looked […]

LipSense — It just makes sense!

Chances are if you spend one iota of time on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve heard the whispers, “LipSense.”  I had been circling around the idea of buying a color to try when my friend Chyna, who I’ve known since high school invited me to her Facebook group, Classy & Sassy Lips. I joined and spent a few days watching her amazing boss babe hustle and looking at colors. I immediately noticed when colors came in they […]

Moms Should Wax — Here’s Why [Spoiler: It saves time!]

Yay — it’s the first day of Spring! There’s a buzz in the air, warm weather is here, it’s almost time for swimming and shorts and cute chunky wedges….and shaving. Bleh. Shaving is the bane of my existence. I don’t care how incredibly (cough,expensive,cough) rated the razor is or what products I use with it, before it or after, I always end up with razor burn. It’s the curse of sensitive skin, I think.  This […]
