    I’m seriously obsessed with Old Navy! The prices are unbeatable and the quality is on point! So of course, naturally, I did some Cyber Monday Shopping.

    Pinterest Hacks {Beauty Edition}

    I’m sure most people can relate, I am obsessed with Pinterest. If I have a question, need to find a dinner recipe, or looking for inspiration for a new project I want to work on I always find myself searching Pinterest first. The funny part is sometimes these Pinterest finds are in no way, shape, or form realistic to do. So I decide I would attempt some hacks I find that I have been wanting to try and see what the outcome is. This week I’m going to try out beauty hacks. Wish me luck..

    Beauty Hack #1

    Red Lipstick to coverup dark circles


    So I found this red lipstick from CVS. It’s the Milani Passion. I read that the red is a color corrector for dark circles and I thought, “Hey, I’m the dark circle queen with 2 kids. I definitely need to try this out.” I wanted to do one side with the red lipstick and one side without to see if you can tell a difference. Then I forgot and did both and wiped off the left side.


    It was really weird to put this under my eye. I looked like I was sick or had pink eye! I’m not sure if I blended it out as much as I need to but I let it set for a minute and put my foundation on. I did concealer over that and it covered it all up. I’m not 100% that it worked completely but we did say that it made my eye look a little brighter so I guess that’s a sign that it covered up some under circle!!



    Over all I think I’m going to have to try this one again to see if it really worked!
    So for now I’ll give it a PASS!

    Beauty Hack #2

    Use a spoon to get perfect wing shaped eyeliner



    I have seen this one around the internet and don’t really know what to think.

    I’ve tried this twice now. The first time the pictures didn’t come out so well but the winged liner wasn’t horrible. I felt that if you have never attempted winged liner and are looking for a quick guide because you don’t have time to run out or to watch a ton of YouTube videos it was a good try BUT my second time around trying it did not come out like the first time I tried it.


    It actually was quite horrible the second time. My wing went so far up my eye it was awful. I don’t think I will try this one again and have to give it a huge thumbs down.


    Beauty Hack #3

    Use baby powder to lengthen and thicken eyelashes


    To be totally honest I can’t really tell if it worked. I put one coat of Urban Decay mascara on. I used a q-tip to dust my eyelashes with baby powder. Added another coat of mascara, another coat of baby powder and one last coat of mascara. I did my left eye with just 3 coats of mascara. I can kind of tell a tiny bit that the right eye was thicker but length wise I did not notice any different. I would definitely give this another shot to see if it really helps. Maybe add a little extra baby powder.



    I am going to give this one a FAIL because I didn’t notice a difference really.

    Here is the final look of everything!


    Have you tried any Pinterest Hacks?

    Which ones worked for you and which ones were a complete FAIL?




    How To Style Your Favorite Date Night Outfit

    I am so excited to announce the cutest thing ever!!!

    It’s called The Mom Capsule.
    They are launching November 2nd!!!


    These two beautiful ladies, started this awesome website to help us moms out with wardrobe shopping. I never had this problem when my oldest was a tiny baby but now that he is getting older and more adventurous, and on top of  having an eight month old baby, it’s hard to go clothes shopping for yourself sometimes. Shopping with kids is a handful and a task in itself, so why not let someone take the stress off of you and do your shopping for you!
    I love this idea and can’t wait to start utilizing it.

    The Mom Capsule was so sweet to send me an awesome dress and I was able to style my own outfit.

    This date night outfit is perfect for anyone and I know you have these accessories stored in you closet already. You can never go wrong with a black leather jacket and some peep toe heels.





    I hope you liked this outfit and can find some inspiration!
    Remember to stop by The Mom Capsule and check out their Instagram too for updates.



    October Favorites

    I hope everyone had an awesome October! This has been the first month that we haven’t had much to do. This summer was crazy for us! From May to October I think we were only home a handful of weekends for that whole 5 month span. Time for us to take a break and relax before the big holidays come up. So, I came up with a list of some of my favorite products that I’ve been using for the month.

    First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration


    First up is this First Aid Beauty the Ultra Repair Cream. This stuff is no joke! Since the weather is changing from Summer to Fall I needed some serious moisturizer. It brings so much moisture to  your skin you barely need any. This jar will last you for a long time! I like to switch my moisturizers up and I recently brought this one back. I especially love to use this one at night so when I wake up my face feels super hydrated.

    Living Proof Dry Shampoo


    I am obsessed with dry shampoo. Sometimes I just don’t feel like washing my hair or I’m just in a hurry and don’t get a chance to and need to run out the door real quick. This dry shampoo is one of my favorites! Is it weird I like the way this one smells!? I have tried a handful of different dry shampoos and this is one of my top ones that I like to come back to.

    No7 Stay Perfect Foundation


    This foundation is the! No, but in all honesty I have an addiction to buying foundation. I feel like you have different types of foundation. Are you going out for the night, boom full coverage. Are you going on a date? Medium coverage to the rescue. So you can’t just own one! Well Sephora and I both know I love the expensive kind but it gets pricey buying $40-$60 foundation every time. I found this one at Walgreens and thought it can’t hurt to try it for $15. I was hooked the moment I bought it. It sits on your face so nicely and actually has a good color selection to chose from.

    Lush Bath Bomb


    I have recently been getting back in the bath scene. I feel like it’s so relaxing and mentally soothing. I leave the electronics out and put on some Explosions In The Sky and throw in some awesome bath bombs. This Lush Sakura bath bomb smells amazing. It is definitely one of my favorite scents from Lush! If you end up loving the bath bomb it also comes in two different types of shower scrubs too!

    Burts Bee Lipstick


    Burts Bees lipstick is so moisturizing and I love that it’s natural and not tested on animals. It has some beautiful colors but one of my favorites is the Lily Lake color. I find sometimes that I love the matte lip look but it ends up being so drying on my lips. This lipstick is nice to have in my collection.

    Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains


    Now Farmacy New Day Exfoliant is the coolest thing ever.  I read some reviews on it and finally decided to jump on board and try it out. It was crazy the first time I used it. It’s a powder!!! You pour some in the palm of your hand and add a little water and rub together to create some sort of paste. It is the softest scrub I have used on my face. It is plant based with white willow bark, carrot, green tea, and marshmallow to soothe, protect, and calm the skin. This is the first package I bought to test out the product before I fully committed to the big bottles. I have never regretted trying it and this is always going to be a staple in my skin care routine.

    That is all for my October Favorites and  I hope you guys enjoyed. Let me know what some of your favorites were for the month of October. Thanks for stopping by!



    Toddler Update

    My little Kellan is 2 1/2 years old. Where the time went I seriously have no idea.  I feel like I was just pregnant with him and here he is growing into this little person that I love. He has his own thoughts, ideas, and an imagination I would die to have. I have some questions I asked him. I’m not sure if he’ll understand but we’ll see what he comes up with.


    What is your favorite color?

    Kellan: “I no favorite color”

    How old are you?

    Kellan: “2”


    When is your birthday?

    Kellan: “It’s not my birthday. My Birthday in April.”

    What is baby brothers name?

    Kellan: “His name two”


    What is your favorite toy to play with?

    Kellan: No comment

    Who is your best friend?

    Kellan: “No, you me best friend.”


    Do you have any pets?

    Kellan: “Doggy name Illy”

    What’s your favorite food?

    Kellan: “Eggs”

    That actually went a whole lot better than I had thought it would! I had to stop him from playing so I think he was a little distracted but he did good. I’m excited to ask him these questions again when he turns 3 to see how these answers have changed. Thanks for reading hope you enjoyed and learned a little more about my toddler.
