Fun Fashion + Motherhood IS possible!

Fun Fashion + Motherhood IS possible!

The other day I was walking through the mall with my three-year-old daughter when she stopped dead in her tracks and said, “Mommy! What is THAT?!?” I looked around thinking maybe she had a random November Easter Bunny sighting, but, no, my sweet little girl had spotted a floral embroidered velvet blouse! My heart smiled, and I said, “Baby girl, that’s velvet, do you want to go touch it?” Immediately she ran over, stroked the fabric, looked up and said: “Can I have some velvet too???”

Superhero Style

Little boys run, jump and fly through life - it’s just what they do. They seem to attack their days with the same vigor and tenacity that most adults would use in a triathlon, and they do it all in the name of fun. It’s “fun" to soar through the air to stop a rocket, chase down a villain or jump all the way to the top of the tower and save a princess. As the Mom of two small boys this makes for some very exciting afternoons, and when they’re in full “super-mode,” I do my best to swallow my OCD and focus on the joy of their battle cries.

Currently on my Countertop

There are a few products I love so much I can’t bear to take them off my countertop, which is saying something because I like to keep my bathroom countertops as tidy as possible… all the time. However, I’m also a creature of convenience, and I reach for these items too much to ever put them properly away. So there they sit - contently on my counter. I love them all for different reasons, and they are…

Upping my beauty game with Eyelash Extensions

Upping my beauty game with Eyelash Extensions

I love discovering what’s new in my neighborhood. Houston, in particular, is a city that’s always evolving and I really enjoy paying attention to how it develops and changes over the years. A few weeks ago I noticed there was something new in the niche of a nearby shopping center - Chic Lash Boutique. With all of the new beauty trends on the market, I was curious what services they offered so I decided to pop in. The boutique was adorable, so I made an appointment for eyebrow threading and lash tinting on the spot. That session went so well that I decided to go back for more - eyelash extensions!

Quality Time with Mom

Quality Time with Mom

Moms are the best. There’s arguably no one who knows me better than mama, accepts me more completely for who I am, and loves me unconditionally. I’m blessed to have a great relationship with my mother. We talk all the time, and she is very much a part of my life. When something good happens, I want to call her so we can share the joy, and when there’s a tight spot, I look to her for comfort. Some of my life all-time best moments have happened with Mom, and here are a few…

Safer Beauty - Three Reasons to love Beauycounter

Safer Beauty - Three Reasons to love Beauycounter

Have you heard of Beautycounter? Up until a few months ago, I really hadn’t. I knew they had a “pop-up shop” in Target for a few weeks, but that was it. Once I dug a little deeper, it didn’t take long before I knew this was a company I wanted to be a part of. Beautycounter just celebrated its fourth birthday on March 4th, and I thought it might be a good time to pass on a little bit of why I fell in love with this company, so here are my top three reasons.
