Corduroy Pants | White Sweater: similar

I remember when Hazel was just a few hours old and my father-in-law looked at me and said “you look tired”. I wanted to reply “Duh! I only got two hours of sleep last night because I just had a baby!” But instead I just smiled and said “Do I? I feel pretty good.” Two years, plus another baby later, and I’m officially tired. Ha!

GREAT HAIR DAY: #PANTENE14DAYCHALLENGE

pantene 14 day hair challenge
By | beauty | No Comments

“You always want what you can’t have.” That is so true when it comes to hair. People with fine, silky hair want volume, people with curly hair want smoother, less frizzy hair, etc. In my case, I have thick, coarse hair, and I want more shine.

If I’m being completely honest, this makeup routine probably takes me more like 7 minutes, but 5 minutes is a better title. Haha! Before becoming a mom, I used to take a lot longer to get ready, but now, I barely have enough time, so I’ve had to take some steps out of my routine (no more fancy eyeshadow) and find little tricks to make applying my makeup faster. Like using the
