Surprise, your skin hates you!

T he last few times I’ve worn eyeshadow, my eyelids feel itchy. Like they’re wearing a wool sweater. This. Has. Never. Happened. Before. Skin, why you hate me?! Part of me suspects the massive hormonal fluctuations I’ve gone through the last few months could be one of the culprits, but I’m not entirely certain. My…

Sara’s September Challenge Diary Part 2/3

Day 11-15 – Nothing to report except that I’ve finally been feeling like my old self again!

Quick post since it’s been kind of busy on my end recently, but I think I can make this pretty succinct: please, please, please get your make-up from reputable sources. Look, I get it: Pinterest makes it look so easy to conjure up your own products out of coconut oil and charcoal. Whole blogs are…

Mom Hair (really, I don’t care…sometimes)

Everyone can probably tell I’ve really taken a backseat on the blogging train, and Sarah has done a beautiful (no pun intended) job of making sure there’s content. Love her. My beauty regimen has also taken a back seat (everything from brushing my teeth regularly to waxing the hair on my upper lip and exfoliating),…
