You Only Get One Face: Let’s Talk About Skincare Over 30

August 10, 2019

This post is sponsored by Cetaphil®. All opinions are mine. I wrote a post once, detailing thirty things I learned by the time I turned thirty. Coming in strong on the list was my stern advice about skincare. I am willing to bet that the majority of women who are 30+ would tell you that they have regrets about the way they’ve taken care of their face and skin in their youth and maybe early adulthood. From not using the…

6 Postpartum Problems No One Told You About

December 4, 2017

The postpartum period comes with a slew of uncomfortable side effects. If you are a mom, you’ve been there. Deodorant is currently helping me battle my very favorite and number six on this list: body odor. Yep, body odor. B.O. is a perfect example of something veteran moms just casually leave out of conversation when telling you about the beautiful and magical weeks after your bundle arrives. Not me, though. I am here to tell you the truth. Read on…

Best of Napa | Hair and Lashes

November 16, 2017

One of the hardest parts of moving to a new place is finding replacements for beauty services like hair stylists and lash specialists. I came from Atlanta, where it already took me what feels like forever to find a stylist, so I was not excited about being on the search again. After scouring social media, Yelp, and local referrals, I found two AMAZING gals that I just had to come on here and tell you all about. If you are…

Why is Adult Acne a Thing?

September 4, 2017

This post was sponsored by TrophySkin. All opinions are mine. But, really. Why? Why is adult acne a thing? Didn’t I serve my time as an awkward teen? Between environmental causes, hormonal fluctuation, and whatever else, my skin has just progressively gotten worse in my adult years. Adult Acne should literally be eradicated. It’s not fair. My skin isn’t even oily, which is a conundrum in itself. My skin is dry, but I am constantly broken out. I decided that…

Making Bath Time Easy and Fun with Aveeno

May 8, 2017

This post was sponsored by iHerb. All opinions are my own. Bath time can either be the most fun or the least fun. It depends a lot on your particular children and the routine you have set up. Grayson liked baths, Charlie is very temperamental and likes to use bathtime as an opportunity to find new ways to hurt herself. It’s always exciting… My first words of advice are about how frequently to actually bathe them. Do not stress yourself…

Tips and Tricks for a Toddler Topknot

April 28, 2017

This conversation was sponsored by Goody. All opinions are 100% mine. You may have seen my Instagram post last week where I briefly talked about the struggles of doing Charlie’s hair. Toddler girl hair can be a challenge! It’s wild and constantly in her face, but she hates sitting still long enough for me to put it up. Not only that, but it can be a bit tricky to style thanks to the fine texture of baby hair. I wanted…
