Spring is finally in the air and I could not be happier!! Flowers + trees are finally in bloom and I just want to lay in the sunshine streaming through our windows! There is just something about Spring that brings such a bright + happy feeling. There are always so many cute new patterns + colors that start showing up all over in stores in both fashion + beauty. I love refreshing my typical beauty routine with a few new additions when Spring rolls around. So today I’m sharing with you the 7 beauty items ( some tried + true, some fun + new) that I’m loving for Spring!
Time just seems to keep on flying by lately, and somehow Mother’s Day is just around the corner. I often hear that moms are hard to shop for, but let me let you in on a little secret. I don’t think there is a mom out there that wouldn’t think the best gift in the world is a nap! And maybe some ice cream to top it off. Haha! But in all honesty, Mother’s Day is such a special holiday. Mom’s work so hard day in and day out and it is so fun to take a day to celebrate the mom or mom figure in our lives! So today I’m sharing all of my favorite Mother’s Day Gift Ideas!
If you’ve been following along here on the blog, you might remember that about 6 months ago I mentioned I am really trying to focus on taking better care of my skin. I kind of put it through all the tanning and sun damage as a teenager, and now that I’m getting older I have realized its time to put the investment + time into really taking care of it. I’ve been working with the team over at Form Med Spa and absolutely loving their treatments. I’ve shared some peeks into those over on my Instagram Stories and got lots of requests for more details! I thought the best way I could share and give you all the info is to highlight each treatment! So today I’m starting off with one of my very favorites, the HydraFacial.
One of the things I probably get the most requests for is my daily routine to get ready! To make it easier and as informative as I can, I’ve been breaking it down into sections in different posts. I shared about my daily beauty routine last week + what I’m doing to invest in my skin, and my 5 minute makeup routine here! That leaves the best for last, my hair routine! I’ve been doing hair for almost 17 years now (that makes me feel old!), so you could say I’ve got my method kind of down to a perfected routine! I decided the best way to share my go to favorites is to walk you through from wet to dry + styled!
Lately I’ve been getting so many questions on different details of my daily beauty routine. I thought it would be nice to finally get it all down in one easy to refer back to place. Sticking to and actually even having this whole routine has not always been the case. When we moved to Utah + Joe started his job, I felt like we were finally in a place financially where I could invest in really taking care of my skin. I haven’t always used these products, and know what its like to be in a place where drugstore products is what you can afford. So I’ve included a few on a lower budget that I loved using too!
It has been a busy few weeks around here! It’s not usually the norm for me, but I’ve been doing a LOT of traveling (+ solo!)! I mentioned on Instagram that I headed to Cincinatti for an event with Pampers a couple weeks ago, and am SO excited for a girls trip with some of my favorites to California this weekend! Since packing + unpacking has been on repeat, I’ve been restocking my favorite travel beauty products and thought I’d share my 5 must haves with you!
If you’ve been around here for a little while, you’ve heard me mention my 5 Minute Makeup Routine. It is probably my biggest tip in my “Busy Mom’s Guide to Getting Ready”, and I tell every girlfriend I know that it is a must have! Something that takes 5 minutes is such a game change for me, since I rarely have the time to actually sit down + do my makeup in the morning. Plus, I always seem to have a few little girls helping me or wanting in on it all! haha.
With 5 little people in tow, you could say our schedule is a little crazy! You can often find us trying to get ready, eat breakfast, and finish a few last minute school projects all at the same time. With being busy and on the go so often, I’d like to think I’ve kind of mastered getting myself put together quick! As much as I’d love to stay in my robe all day everyday, I always get more accomplished (and less awkward looks) when I pull myself together. That being said, it doesn’t have to be hard, so today I’m sharing my busy mom’s guide to getting ready I use just about every day!
Last week on Instagram, I mentioned that I was finally taking the steps to really up my skincare game. I’m getting older whether I like it or not, and that + having 5 little people has taken a toll on my skin so I decided it was time for me to put some more focus on it.
I had heard so many good things from my close girlfriends about Form Med Spa here in Utah, so I knew it would be a great place to start! Before starting any treatments, I started using their skincare line. It is a multi-step process, but really easy to follow and I am already noticing my skin changing and reacting to it after only using it for a month or so.
If you’ve been around for a while, you probably know that I don’t share too many beauty products. My typical beauty routine is quick and simple because with 5 little people and their crazy schedules, we are almost always in a hurry to go! So I usually stick to my basics go-to products for everyday. However, the products I do use are ones that I feel like are my tried + true must haves and I would recommend to any girlfriend. So since I get asked a lot here, I thought I’d share my top SIX beauty items I can’t live without!
