    Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks

    There are two make-up products I cannot live without and they are lipstick and concealer. Primarily because my lips and my eyes are the very first indicators of exhaustion. I am a mom juggling so many things and I need these two products at the very least to look like I have some life left in me. My lips tend to be more on the discolored side as well so I was looking for a lipstick that didn’t require so much re-application throughout the day. I came across Stila’s all day liquid lipsticks at my favorite make-up store, Ulta. I love Ulta, I have a rewards membership and I love…

    Christmas Decor In Our Home

    I love to decorate my home for Christmas every year. I don’t go too crazy with decorations though as I don’t want to feel overwhelmed with putting a lot of things up.  But, just enough to show Christmas spirit and make the kiddos happy. This year our Christmas decor theme is “Silver with a touch of red”. We decided to buy a fake tree last year instead of purchasing a fresh one every year. The reason being is that fresh ones are just too much of a hassle to carry in and out of the house and create a mess. I like to make things as easy as possible. We…

    The Hardest Thing I Faced This Year

    Blessings and Difficulties. As the end of the year approaches, I find myself thinking a lot about the events I lived through this year. I think of all the blessings I received and the difficulties I faced. I do count my blessings and I am so grateful for them. This is the happiest year of my life and it seems as if every year gets better than the last, and I am so thankful to God for that. It’s been a long road. There was a particularly difficult event I had to face though. I had to do something I dreaded. 5 years ago, I knew the day would come…

  • Experience using cluster eyelash extensions

    My Experience with Cluster Extensions

    Just a few days ago I decided to give eyelash extensions a try. Let’s just say I am looking at this entire experience from a positive perspective, because otherwise I wouldn’t be here blogging all about it. 😉 So…I had always been curious to know what it would be like to wake up to fab lashes. Now, I am not an avid user of falsies or false lashes, I can’t even glue them on right myself. I’d say I naturally have (or had) pretty good lashes, so I don’t feel like I need them. I get my compliments here and there. Before a weekend trip with the family, I went…

    Bathroom Renovation: Before and After

    I love interior design. I am not an expert but I can give you some tips based on my recent home renovation experience. Renovating a bathroom is a tedious process but well worth it. We took our old, plain bathroom and gave it a more modern/contemporary look. Look ahead for some of our before and afters. The Old Bathrooms We moved in to our home a couple of years ago. The bathrooms had remained the same since that house was first built about 18 years ago (gross, I know) and stubborn mold meant it was time for a change. What to Expect Renovation isn’t all rainbows and butterflies. You have…
