A Litany for Self-Worth

A Litany for Self-Worth

Hey, you.  Yes, you – the one taking a breather or a break in your crazy busy day.  Also, you – the one mindlessly scrolling your phone because it’s a pandemic and we’re on month 32 of summer break and for the love what else […]

Aging with Grace

Aging with Grace

I took a selfie the other day.  I mean, what else are you supposed to do when the lighting is great and the makeup you put on for Mass is still on point at 5:00 pm?  So, no, I guess taking the selfie wasn’t all […]

New Year, Same Me

New Year, Same Me

In a few short hours, a new year…a new decade…will dawn.  Is it really possible that it’s going to be 2020?  All signs point to yes, but still.  I have a hard enough time believing that the 90s weren’t just a decade ago, but 20 […]

Trendsend Review #6 – One Thing. Just One.

Once again, it’s time to review another Trendsend box!  Over the past year, I’ve received and reviewed six of these subscription clothing service boxes.  Sometimes, I’ve been happy with what I received.  Sometimes, I questioned my stylist’s sanity.  You know…so it goes. The pieces I […]

Giving Arbonne a Whirl

Giving Arbonne a Whirl

I’ll admit it.  I’m a bit of a serial monogamist when it comes to my skincare and makeup routines.  Every so often, I find that one amazing new product that I absolutely love and then it’s all I use for the next one to five […]

Dear Kohl’s, I Love You, We’re Through

GAAAAHHHHHH!!!! I am just home from one of the single most frustrating experiences of my life.  OK, well maybe not my whole entire life.  (Overdramatic much?  Sheesh.)  But still… On a total whim, I ran into Kohl’s after work today since I had both a […]

Beauty Must-Haves for the Lazy Mama

Hair & Makeup Must Haves! There are two things you may or may not know about me. I am high maintenance with my hair and makeup, but I like a simple look. I tend to be rather lazy. Yeah, I know.  It’s a strange dichotomy.  […]
