I hope everyone has had a safe and fun holiday weekend so far! Ours has been filled spending time with family and friends, taking our dogs to local parks and several pet-friendly patios, and creating lots of memories at the IMS during Carb Day and the Indy 500. May in Indianapolis is the best! We’ve had so much fun, but a little recovery time is in order. Today we’re going to hang around the house and hopefully get our outdoor space ready for summer. Just a few things left and we’ll be all set!
With so many sales going on today, I wanted to share what I have my eye on…continue reading
Spring always seems like the perfect time to freshen things up! Whether it’s our homes, wardrobes, gardens, or beauty routines it’s nice to make changes + improvements that just make us feel better. I recently went through all my makeup + skin care products and tossed things I wasn’t using (or were expired) and organized everything else. I’ve been loving how everything looks and how easily accessible my products are.
Going through the process really made me evaluate my morning routine and how much time I was wasting simply digging through my ridiculous inventory. I came to grips with the fact there was no need to keep so much around because I have my go-to makeup products and don’t stray. My skin is fairly sensitive so for years it was really tough + frustrating to find products that gave me the coverage I wanted, but didn’t negatively impact my skin. I’m happy to say I now have a ten minute makeup routine that gives me confidence in the way I look, but is gentle on my skin. Not to sound too dramatic here, but it’s seriously taken so much stress from my life. Today I’m sharing my lineup and how I use each product.continue reading
There are tons of great dresses out right now so I decided to round up some of my favorites under a hundred bucks for you guys. With events popping up this time of year – brunches for Easter + Mother’s Day, bridal + baby showers, graduation parties, and weddings – it’s the perfect time to add a few dressy pieces to your wardrobe. The ones I’m showing range from a casual t-shirt dress to a more formal lace midi, so there’s something for everyone and every occasion!

I’m so happy spring is finally in the air! We’ve spent a lot of time outside the past few days and it’s really put some pep in my step! It’s kind of incredible to think of the affect the weather has on my mood, motivation, eating habits and willingness to leave my house. When it’s cold out I come home and immediately change into sweats, and it takes some serious persuasion to get me to leave. So, the sunshine and higher temps we’ve had in the Midwest recently have basically transformed me into a whole new woman! I’ve enjoyed getting ready and going out, even if it’s just to the grocery store. New season, new me. My sandals, warm weather tops, and light jackets have come out of hiding and I’ve added a few pieces to my closet for spring, too. I’ve gravitated toward a lot of neutrals when shopping so I can mix and match everything into summer.continue reading
We’ve had several guests stay with us since we moved into our home last summer. There have been times I’ve been prepared and felt like the space was put together and welcoming, and unfortunately times I threw everything together last minute and missed a thing or two. We love having visitors and I never want them to worry about being a burden for having to ask for something. I want people to walk in and feel at home having everything they need within an arm’s reach. I recently compiled a list in hopes of accomplishing this.continue reading
I started receiving Ipsy Glam Bags in September 2018 and haven’t looked back since. I love trying products I wouldn’t have picked out myself and have gotten some great deals along the way. If you haven’t heard of Ipsy, it’s a subscription beauty service whose customers receive personalized “glam bags” for only $10 each month. You can read more about them here, but for now I’m excited to share my review with you.continue reading
