Spring is here so make your eyebrows look good (and shave your legs)!

Spring is here so make your eyebrows look good (and shave your legs)!

Happy Spring 2017 !!!


You know you enjoy winter because you are always in pants and you don’t have to shave every stinking day. Be honest, who’s legs have come close to looking like this??

It is a sunny 65 degrees outside today in NC. Bring it on!! I absolutely love this weather! Caleigh is home sick (and I don’t feel so hot myself) so it’s screen doors and fresh air to hopefully flush out these germs.

We pretty much spent the weekend sleeping, eating, and making Snapchat videos.


I did manage to be productive before I started going downhill. When we bought this house all 3 floors had been completely renovated EXCEPT one room… the kids bathroom. They have been able to enjoy chipping paint and Winnie the Pooh hardware for 7 months 😬.

This is what it looked like right after we moved in.

And now…..

painted bathroom

Ta-Da !!

I have a little more touching up to do, tile grout to scrub, new faucets to install, new lighting, and I need to paint the walls. Other than that i’m almost done πŸ˜‰


So, it’s all about eyebrows these days right? Honestly, I am not a die hard brow fanatic but I decided to join the rest of you and add that piece to my makeup bag. What do you know, I like it and like making my eyebrows look good. I admit I love the way it changes up my look.

I know it’s pricey BUT this is going to last you a very long time. I don’t care to make my brows darker than they are suppose to be. I just want to fill them in.  I am naturally a red head but we all know I like bleach. I went with “Blond” (pictured) and its perfect!!

I just wanted to share!

I had a really good response to the Bobbi Brown Tinted Balm I posted over the weekend. I can’t wait to hear how you like it!! If I didn’t answer your questions please send again. While I was writing you all back I accidentally deleted some history. I don’t think I lost anything I had not opened yet. But, if I didn’t write you back please send again!!

That brings me to Facebook. As I was reading some of your questions I was thinking how much everyone could help each other . I’m not even close to an expert, i’m only giving you my opinion and telling you what has worked for me or in some cases what has worked for others and not me. If you are comfortable with asking your questions on Facebook everyone can chime in and it will ultimately help out multiple people! Everyone can offer their opinion and/or personal experience and we could all learn from each other πŸ™‚ If not, send me a message! I will never tire of those!!! ❀️

Feel free to share your favorite, one and only, can’t live without product. Anything from hair, face, clothes, ect…..  on facebook below todays blog post!

Mine would have to be HANDS DOWN the flat iron !


Enjoy the rest of your Monday!!!!

Sleeping is life

Sleeping is life

Hey guys! Happy Saturday!!  

It’s 10:00 and I’m still in bed. I’m not going to act like this never happens. It also happened yesterday. Judge away. 

For years I would sleep about 4-6 hours a night and go on about my day with a Red Bull in each hand. I got a lot done and was probably more productive than ever. Slowly those things became the devil and we sadly had to part ways. 😒

I’ve always stayed up pretty late. I really enjoy that time when the house is too quiet to be able to clean anything or do laundry. I don’t have anyone asking me to do anything and there isn’t anywhere I need to be (other than bed). It’s always been somewhere between 11:00 and 1:00 in the morning before I would call it a day. 

I’ve tried so many things to naturally help myself get more rest. I’ve been in full blown menopause since the age of 31. That’s obviously a huge part of the problem but I will spare you those details for another day.
Anyway, with lifestyle changes and a protein shake I’ve been on for a while, (and a thermostat always set on 65) I’m a sleeping machine and proud of it! I could easily fall asleep by 9:00 every night. I don’t, but I could πŸ˜€

I have a new foundation that I’m absolutely in love with! So much in love that I’m writing you from my iPhone while still in bed because I can’t wait to share it with you. 

Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisterizing Balm. 

Y’all. . . It’s amazing.

This is the perfect spring to summer coverage. It goes on so smooth and has the most gorgeous natural looking dewy glow. Yesterday I wore it without even putting powder on top. I know, but it’s that perfect!!! 

And a bonus- SPF 25 😍 because who wants cancer or more freckles?

*Light coverage. *Mainly for dry skin

Trust me. Buy it.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Getting a new dog is like giving birth and bringing home a toddler.

Happy Tuesday !!

I finally gave in to all of the nagging and begging and fussing about getting a dog. I stood firm for a while and was so proud of myself. I entertained all the trips to the shelter and even brought Roo (our mini Schnauzer) for one of the visits to see how she took to other dogs. Honestly guys, I wasn’t getting a dog. 2 cats, 1 dog, 24 acres, messy kids, and messier husband….Not Happening!!

So, we have a new dog.


Her name is Bella.

Per my husbands request we spent an entire Saturday dog hunting. Shelter to shelter. On the very last stop we spotted her. That color, those eyes, that face…

She was surrounded by cages of barking dogs and she just sat there quietly wagging her crooked tail. At other shelters we were able to take the dogs out in the play yard to get to know them better. This place you could only go in their room (small room) with them. Whatever. I caved.

I have had a close to perfect dog for the last 5 years. She runs away and wont walk right on a leash to save her life….but other than that, angel.

Bella, well……..we are having to learn how to train a dog. She chews everything. Roo never chewed. Β Roo never used a crate. Bella is in a crate. Roo will hold her pee and poo all day. Bella pees AND poos every 30 minutes!!!!! We just came in from about a 1/2 mile walk. Not 10 minutes inside and she pees. Somebody help me and help me fast!!!!! So there’s that, the part where she acts like she wants to eat the cats, and she’s on 2 pills a day for sneezing like crazy allergiesπŸ™„ . We will get it figured out. Right?


This guy will be 14 next week !!! I don’t know if there is anyone on this earth with a bigger heart than his. I have no idea what I did to deserve such a blessing. Even when he hooks himself so bad fishing that he ends up in the hospital because NONE of us could get it out, he’s still being sweet and respectful.


I’m going to hold on tight to this last year without him behind the wheel.


Thank you for all the hilarious couch feedback. I laughed so hard at your pictures!!! Although I didn’t get a single real couch recommendation the fact that you took the time placing your family in awkward uncomfortable positions on your old hard couches to snap me a pic trumped it all πŸ™‚ SO SO funny!!! I feel your uncomfortable pain πŸ˜‰.


Did you watch the 3 hour bachelor last night? I have to admit I wasn’t a fan of Corinne’s from the very beginning. She started to grow on me about halfway through and now i’m #teamcorinne for life. Like can I get her number and get her to take me shopping too? So who is Nick picking? You know I have already read the spoilers because I don’t know how to handle a surprise. If you don’t know who he picks share your guess with us!!


I haven’t posted a new product in a while. Remember, I never fix up anymore πŸ˜‰ So, I decided to share this one with you today. I am far from a contouring expert. I don’t even technically contour. I dab a little here and a little there…but I love this stuff!s1615186-main-Lhero

Its Anastasia Beverly Hills $40 atΒ SephoraΒ  ← click for link. I use this one in light-medium. It comes in 3 shades. I love using the top right color to highlight. Make sure to grab a few different size contouring brushes!!!

Enjoy your Tuesday!!
