Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 1.29.58 PM

So I'm doing a post on 5-minute makeup and the makeup I wear every day. Of course while I was shooting the video, I completely forgot I was trying to keep it to 5 minutes and it ended up being 7 minutes long. But you'll see, that's because I chat for a bit about each product and I'm confident in telling you guys that you could use all of the … [Read more...]

Fashion & Function: On Wearing My @PulsarWatches #lifeinrealtime #pulsar

IMG_0483.JPG

It's been years since I wore an actual watch. Probably ever since I got a cell phone? We all use our cell phones to tell the time, but over the years I've seen and eyed up a lot of watches - watches not just for the function of telling time but the fashion accessory that they've become with recent trends. So I was asked to do a post with Pulsar … [Read more...]

IMG_0473.JPG

Right around the time that soccer season started this fall, a friend posted about the Sport Brella ($19.99, Amazon). I think it was my friend Amy from TeachMama.com but I can't be sure - was that you Amy?  If so, thank you!  I am totally in love with this little product that I ended up ordering after seeing it on Facebook and can't believe that … [Read more...]

Moving on with fall, I'm loving all my options this season.  Last weekend, we took a quick jaunt up to our local outlets and I went to town with a bunch of outlet prices.  I scored pretty big at the Banana Republic Outlet, Under Armour and Ann Taylor.  I've been doing mostly cropped jeans with loafers but I'm really wanting this fall to be my year … [Read more...]

Meet the Makeup Organizer You Didn’t Know You Needed (But Do!) #CutieCube

Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 2.03.45 PM

Here's how my make-up & beauty routine used to go in the mornings: out of the shower after a workout, I'm generally in a hurry because I'm a busy Mom with a crazy schedule.  I was usually blow drying my hair-one handed while I did a mad dash through multiple make-up bags that sat next to my bathroom sink, trying to find the make-up I wanted for … [Read more...]

Back in July sometime, I got a note about doing a campaign with Balance Bar and Walmart. I said yes because I'm always up for trying a new energy bar and then promptly forgot about it until earlier this week. I realized I hadn't checked it out yet so I sent hubby over to Walmart to pick us up a couple of boxes of Balance Bars and see what we … [Read more...]
