Weekday Makeup Routine

Hello & Happy Wednesday Friends! Balancing my career in Marketing, my role as a mom to two littles and this blog has been something I’ve had to learn how to do over the past few years. I’ve learned how to effectively multitask, create efficiencies where I can and most importantly prioritize. Nothing can take time away from my mom time. I’m covering a bit of the second point in this post – creating efficiencies. Getting ready in the morning is usually a whirlwind in our house. Luckily both of my kids are great sleepers BUT you can never count on that. There have been many times where my makeup is…

Sweatshirts & Potty Training

Sweatshirts & Potty Training – the two go hand in hand right?! 🙂 We recently took the plunge in parenting which is potty training and I thought I’d share what’s working for us, what has not and some life saving products which have helped tremendously! Additionally, I’ve been VERY into sweatshirts lately because…comfort right? Luckily there are a TON of cute comf clothes out there right now. I pulled together all of my favorites from my closet and also those currently on my wish list. Outfit details: Sweatshirt; Jeans; Tennis Shoes Let’s start with potty training though shall we?! If I’m being totally transparent, Madeline has definitely been ready for…

7-Minute Makeup Routine

Hello! If you know me, you know that I really love makeup. All my life, I’ve tried SO many different brands and products. I just think it’s so fun! Since becoming a mom, and then a mom of 2, the time dedicated to myself for getting ready has gone down quite substantially. Now, I like to get ready quickly so I can go read books, play or feed Cal. Therefore, I’ve found some tips and tricks to be efficient in my makeup and hair because I DO still like being put together. I thought I’d take an opportunity to share my current 7-minute makeup routine. It’s what I typically do…

Latest Sephora Haul!

There is nothing I love more than going to Sephora and stocking up on new pretties. I almost always leave with about 5 extra things than the ONE thing I came for. It’s too easy to go a little crazy! 🙂 I posted my haul on my Instagram stories this week and received a few questions about the products and how I like them.

I have to give credit where credit is due! My Hair Squad Let’s start with the most important part – the lifesavers I refer to as my “hair squad.” If you are in the Minneapolis area, I highly recommend Haus Salon. I just started going…

PinkBlush Maternity

Have you ever fallen in love with a dress? After receiving this dress from PinkBlush, I was smitten. I couldn’t wait to try it on and once I did, I didn’t want to take it off. Not only did it fit perfectly over my bump but it had just the right amount of stretch to flatter my new 27 week maternity body. Dressing for pregnancy can be HARD. It’s difficult to know how your body will be one week from the next. Personally, my body changes immediately in the hips (yay) but it takes a little bit of time for the belly to pop. Then, seemingly overnight, baby makes his…
