    the perfect nude nail & at-home manicure tips

    This will be a quick blog post that will help you step up your at-home manicure! As soon as the warmer months come around, my schedule becomes packed! And since I’ve been on a nail polish kick lately, I’ve had to create my own at-home manicure process and find products that give salon-like results. After many trial and errors, and testing a ton of polish colors, I think I’ve found the perfect at-home manicure and nude nail. I love having my nails done, but I really can’t afford going to the salon twice per month. I think that’s most of us, right? That being said, I can’t stand when the…

    Spring Beauty Favorites | 2019

    Over the past several months, I’ve been getting back into beauty and makeup. When I first started my blog, makeup was my main content. I used to do reviews, first impressions, empties, and more. Since I’m currently on the mend from surgery, I’ve had to find another hobby to focus on for a few weeks that didn’t involve dead lifts. A lot of these favorites you might recognize from my recent Mexico Packing List. Turns out, all my picks for our spring vacation were perfect for traveling and every day looks. All of these products help with perfecting my base which is essential to any makeup look. These picks are…

    Fall Favorites | 2018

    It’s time for another favorites post – specifically my fall favorites for this year! Fall is in full swing and I’ve been enjoying as much of it as I can. October started out quite cold and dreary in Minnesota, but once it cleared the colors and shorter days were wonderful.

I’ll share a few pictures of our session at the end of this post if you’re interested! With fall, comes pumpkin and spice everything. Warm colors. Muted and dark lipsticks. Sweaters and scarves. All of these and more, which I’ve…

    My Summer Beauty Essentials

    Happy summer! The summer solstice was this past week on June 21 so what a better time to share some of my summer beauty essentials I’ve been loving. Makeup is one of my favorite hobbies and I would even say I have quite the collection. I’m no beauty guru or blogger, but it’s always fun for me to share new finds and favorites. It’s a little bittersweet to think about the solstice already passing us because from here on out, the days only get shorter. So if you haven’t made summer vacation plans yet or made it out to the cabin, be sure you add it your calendars ASAP. I…

    February Favorites 2017 | Food, Fitness, Beauty

    February has come to a close and honestly I’m pretty happy about that. Even though February is the shortest month of the year, it kept me busy and stretched more than thin that I like to be. Because I was busy my list of favorites is on the shorter side, but what I have been loving are a part of my normal routine so they’re worth sharing. I spent the latter half of the month too fixated on my macros, so I took a few steps back to focus on what I truly want in regards to my fitness and nutrition. In March, I want to be at ease with my…
