    Shopping My Makeup Stash | Spring Cleaning

    I’m back with another spring cleaning post, this one came from cleaning out my makeup and shopping through my current collection for some new goodies. I’ve picked out some old favorites that will be flattering during the spring and for work. Most of these products are neutral and easy to wear, with a few exceptions. A year ago that would have been really boring to me, but I’ve found a level of comfort with makeup staples that I can use to quickly get ready for work in the early morning hours. To always encourage myself to recycle out products I’m no longer using, I keep a small bin on the floor next to…

    ColourPop | First Impressions!

You’d think I’d just switch over to gel manicures, but I don’t like the way my cuticle can look once the color starts to grow out. I know, I just can’t be happy. So instead, I do my own manicure switching out the color around twice a week and for the most part they don’t chip very often now that I have…

    Duluth & Making the Move

    I’m back! Duluth was awesome! Although I wish the weather would have been better and we could have stayed a bit longer on Sunday. We got up there Friday and the weather was beautiful that afternoon! I hadn’t been to Duluth in about 10 years so I was happy to be there and taking as many pictures as I could. That night we took it easy, only going out for dinner and quick drink. Saturday we got up and almost missed our runners because we had the start time of the race wrong. The weather was less than idea, cold and rainy, but we still managed to get out and…
