Keeping Hydrated Inside and Out for a Beautiful Summer

Plus, getting in the ocean or the pool is a must to keep cool and to have fun.  On top of that there are vacations and more social events to feel beautiful for. Today, I want to chat about how I am thinking about how I treat myself inside and out for a more beautiful summer! This is a sponsored post by Lunchbox, ...

Perfect 3 in 1 Facial Cleanser for Busy Schedules

Pond's Cold Cream Cleaser

I'm always chatting about how busy I am. In essence, it's why I started this blog. My goal was to share easy shortcuts that can get us from A to Z faster and in as few steps as possible.

I've written about how important it is to take care of ourselves so many times, but taking my own advice can be beyond tricky. Today, I'm sharing a ...

My Son is “Leveling Up”. It’s Crazy.


Time really does fly. I know it's a common expression that's probably used way too much. Sorry, but it's honestly relevant for this.  It was really just yesterday that we had a kid running around here and then a couple of summers ago, we had a teen.  It happened just like that. Now this year, we'll have a teen that can legally drive.  Yeah.  This is a sponsored post by Lunchbox about Axe Hair Products. Opinions are 100% my own.

Get Style That Makes Waves & #UnDoneWaves Twitter Party


Do you look for easier more laid back hair styles when the summer heat hits? I sure do. There is is nothing more icky than sweating under a hot iron after a shower. I love keeping my hair straight and sleek, but it's such a challenge in the heat. Even if I spend time getting it straight, once I set foot out of the house, I end up with a frizzy mess anyway. That's why I'm loving that the beachy wave look is totally in this year! This is a sponsored post by Lunchbox about UnDone Hair Waves, all ...

Mother and Daughter Relationship Quotes

mother daughter relationship quotes
