    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…

    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…

    Packing for Vancouver | Outfits and Activities

    I’m headed out for Vancouver! Jake and I are once again off to some more traveling – this time in Canada. Vancouver randomly popped into our heads a while back as a place to visit because it has lot to offer – a big city, shopping, the ocean, mountains. We’re really into adventures and exploring when on vacation, as opposed to touristy stuff – though I love at least seeing the touristy stuff when visiting. We planned to take a longer trip than some of our previous trips, a full six days, so packing proved a bit more challenging this time. Outfits  This vacation is the longest we’ve ever taken…

    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…
