Hi friends! It’s most definitely been awhile! Life is busy, as always. I’ve been working around 30 hours a week in my day job, on top of having two active kiddos and a busy family schedule. 6th grade and 9th grade for our guys now.It’s hard to believe that the baby who inspired me to start this blog is now in high school.

We moved both of our kidsto a new school this fall. We had a variety of reasons for doing it but it’s been the best decision for them both.

Life marches on but I realize I’ve been neglecting this blog. I have a few things on the burner this fall — a couple of projects related to to the blog so I hope I won’t be as much of a stranger.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share a quick post on my most recent shopping haul. Last weekend, aSephora opened up about a 1/2 mile from my house. (Dangerous, right?!) I went in this past weekend and here’s what I ended up with:



  1. Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 1.41.42 PM Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Highlighter – I tried this on in store and love the little glow it gives my cheeks

  2. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer – My BFF got this one a few days before I did and it looked amazing on her so of course I had to try it too. A very faint gloss that gives your lips a nice little boost of volume. Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 1.46.49 PM
  3. Sephora Cleansing Wipes – Cucumber is my fav. Anti-fatigue! Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 1.51.24 PM
  4. Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Face Primer – I got a sample of this in a shipment from Nordstrom and fell in love. Gives your face a little dewy look, plus keeps the makeup on. Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 2.08.53 PM
  5. Diorshow Mascara – I’ve been on the hunt for years for the perfect mascara. I’ll report back if this qualifies. The Sephora saleslady said it would!

What’s your favorite piece of makeup lately?
