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!
I’ve hinted a little bit about this in the past, but I wouldn’t feel like a good girlfriend if I didn’t tell you guys about my go to favorite makeup, Maskcara!! Now let me start off by saying, I have never been someone that loves makeup. I’ve never liked how it feels on my face, and that is why I don’t typically blog about a lot beauty products. (I’m a pretty simple girl) I want my opinions and recommendations from sales to be real. And since I don’t use a lot of products, that limits things! But you guys, this one has been a total game changer for me!! So I had to share why I love it!
A little over a month ago I shared with you all about the AMAZING skin care line I had been using for about three months, TULA and how much I love it!! I didn’t think it was possible to love the line more. But I’ve recently been using some of the products from their new line, and cannot get enough!
In my last post here, I mentioned I’ve always kind of been a slacker when it comes to washing my face and sticking to a good routine. These two new products —Replenishing Cleansing Oil + Moisture Repair Pressed Serum make my skin feel so great + I actually look forward to my skin care routine now. (my mom is dying after reading that sentence) haha!
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my skin care routine and I’ve recently shared a bit on my instagram stories. So I thought I’d go into more detail here. If I’m being honest I’ve never been very great at taking care of my skin. And haven’t been able to stick to a routine for long. So hen Tula reached out to me, I had actually been trying to find a new skin care line, so it was perfect timing!
If you’ve been around here for a while, you know my go-to hairstyle is a relaxed curl. It makes me feel put together and ready for the day, but is still SO SIMPLE, with the right tools, so I don’t have to take too much time on it! (plus if I take the time the first day my curls will usually last another 3-4 days) We all know I need quick and easy! I get asked alllll the time how I get these curls and what I use so I had to share!
Since summer is almost here, I thought I’d write a fun little post about my favorite 6 nail colors for the spring + summer. I’m pretty sure white and pink will always be my go-to/favorite nail color, but lately I’ve been venturing out and trying more fun, cute colors. Below are my favorite picks for spring + summer!!
