Quick and to the point. Anyway, lately I was looking around and really LOVING some products and realized it was time to write it down. Here we go with my May 2019 beauty favorites… may 2019 beauty favorites Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream I mentioned the Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream in my Sephora VIB Sale video on YouTube, but recently I re-started using my prescription Retin A and with that, as anyone who uses retinol knows, your skin gets a little flaky for awhile. My skin also has yet to return to its full oily glory post-pregnancy. I may be on the combination/dry side of the world! I’ve used two tubs of the Tatcha Water Cream, which is a stunningly beautiful formula for normal to oily skin, but I needed something with a little more hydration… but I HATE feeling greasy/heavy. Knowing the Sephora sale was coming up, I picked up a sample of the Dewy Skin Cream to test it out. First of all, Tatcha’s skin care smells heavenly. Like legitimate cherub angels. If […]

*Affiliate links used. Full disclaimer details here. I take these two yearly Sephora sales – November and April – very seriously now that I’m blowing tons of cash on diapers and baby clothes! So when Sephora released the dates for their annual spring sale in late April/early May, I was instantly curating my cart for items I’ve been dying to try, and things I just really needed to restock but it kills me to pay full price. So, without further adieu, let’s just get into my Sephora sale recommendations spring 2019 edition (and my wish list!)… Naturally, I’ve already filmed a YouTube video regarding a lot of the items I’m going to mention here, so if you’re someone who loves watching videos while washing baby bottles or prepping dinner (like me), I’ll drop this video below, but if not and you’re scrolling through just to see what I’m linking, then go for it, girl… scroll away… sephora sale recommendations spring 2019 So this year’s spring sale started April 26 and will run through May 6. Rouge gets access exclusively for the first six days of the sale and will get unlimited use of 20% off their purchases in stores or online. […]

Hey everyone! I haven’t shared a Stitch Fix unboxing and try on in awhile and I really want to get into more fashion try on’s lately… especially as I’m rebuilding my new, postpartum wardrobe (and trying to do so on a budget/with convenience… is that an oxymoron?). Anyway, this was quite a great box so I’m excited to share my spring Stitch Fix Unboxing… This spring Stitch Fix unboxing is on my YouTube channel, so I won’t waste much time blabbering away, but for those that are unfamiliar with Stitch Fix: It’s a styling service/subscription You choose the frequency of your fixes You choose the budget of your fixes You choose the style/fit/color preferences of your fixes It’s a $20 fee for each ‘fix,’ but that fee goes towards the balance of the items in your ‘fix’ that you keep Stitch Fix offers Fixes for women, men, maternity (my try on/haul), and kids now! If you want to try out Stitch Fix yourself, I have a referral code/link that gives you $$$ off your box and also gives me Stitch Fix credit towards my future boxes. It’s not an affiliate link; rather a link ANYONE who has Stitch Fix gets […]

Yay for new makeup from bareMinerals!  I love that over the last year or so, the brand has revamped and released so many new products that have been (mostly) all huge hits for me and these long-lasting lipsticks are no exception. Available in 20 beautiful neutrals and pops of color, there’s definitely a shade for everyone in every skin tone. I have a video where I swatched every single shade on my lips so you can see what they look like on me, and you can continue reading to get the full bareMinerals BarePro Long Lasting Lipsticks review and arm swatches… bareMinerals barepro long lasting lipsticks review **Full disclosure, the team at bareMinerals was kind enough to send me all of the shades complimentary for testing purposes. This review is not sponsored and I am not required to review or talk about the lipsticks at all.** The basics on this lipstick formula: long wearing (8+ hours of wear) matte finish full coverage/pigment comfortable mineral based transfer and water proof kiss proof vegan To watch the YouTube review and see all 20 shades swatched on my lips, check it out here: What I liked most […]

*Affiliate links used. Full disclaimer details here. First of, let me start out by saying not all babies and bottles are created equal. What worked for your first, may not work for your second. What works for my baby, may not work for yours, etc. What I have learned in this bottle experiment/experience in my first six months as a mother is that there are WAY TOO MANY options out there and it’s overwhelming, expensive and just plain obnoxious. However, with that said, since I basically tried every freaking bottle at Buy Buy Baby (with the exception of possibly 3 I’ll mention), I feel pretty confident in my bottle recommendations today. Let’s get to my thoughts on the best baby bottles 2019… particularly for 0-6 month olds… So, to begin, let’s start by checking all of the flows on your bottle nipples. I assumed the ‘free’ bottles I received in registry gifts, gift sets, freebies from Amazon, etc… came with the slowest flows. No. This is not the case. So before your waterboard your baby with a super fast flow nipple like I did and have her gag, check yourself. You may have to order some of the slowest flow nipples […]
