Falling Back in Love with My Mascara

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

This is really just a letter of gratitude to Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes for making me fall back in love with my mascara!!  I have struggled for so long to find the right eye makeup remover- something that is easy to use and doesn't require the energy of a power sander to remove my eye makeup- including my waterproof mascara!

Honestly, before these wipes, there were days when I would just forgo the mascara because the evening makeup removal routine seemed too overwhelming for this under slept mom.  But now, I literally enjoy putting on my mascara because I know it will be a breeze to come off.  This might not seem like a big deal to most, but when my mornings BARELY allow sunscreen, blush, mascara and lip gloss, it's nice to know I can wear it confidently, knowing that, come bedtime, I can remove it with a quick wipe!

So seriously, Neutrogena, thank you!

Because Sometimes You Need an Impulse Facial...

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

I had spent the morning at the pool with the boys- slathered in layers of sunscreen and my post-pool shower just didn't cut it when it came to rinsing away the grime.

I've been meaning to try a local Blue Mercury and I was thrilled that a) they could squeeze me in and b) my sitter was free.  What are the chances??

I opted for the Hydrating Facial (cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, treatment mask, oxygen blast- huh?, moisturizer ion and protection).


It was glorious.   And it has inspired me to indulge in a facial as often as possible!!

On my way out I picked up this luxurious exfoliation from Delphin.  It is sublime and I can't wait to add it into my regimen!

It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time

Saturday, July 18, 2015

So...maybe I was having a tough day with the kids or maybe I thought I was edgier than I really am, but I fell hard for the name Karmama's a Bitch.  But as with all whirl wind love affairs, the flames go out just as quickly as they ignited!

Stay turned over the next few days as I try to think of a name that's more inline with me (bubbly and enthusiastic not dark and cheeky!).

I hope you'll come and visit me at the new URL...I'll post it soon!!

Showering twice a week??

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Just sitting here on a rainy day surrendering to the fact that today will likely be a TV day since our regularly scheduled outdoor activities are on hold with this weather...

And I caught KLG saying that she showers twice a week!  

My initial reaction:  ew
My second reaction: huh, maybe that's a good skin secret???
My third reaction: relief- she may only shower twice a week but she takes a bath every night.

I do like a nice and relaxing bath but I think I'd swap my frequencies- shower every night and bathe twice a week.  But regardless I'm not washing my hair everyday ;). We all know how I feel about that!!
