Hi friends! If you told me last year that I would be posting about makeup I would have laughed! Up until a few months ago my routine consisted of a motley collection of samples I received at the Saks beauty counter, in event gift bags, CVS mascara, and a Laura Mercier foundation stick that I swear by. Even for photoshoots I would throw on a little extra blush and bronzer and be on my way! I don't have a ton of time in the morning (who really does?) so I always kept it really simple. It wasn't until I met Siobhan from Organachs that I starting thinking about refining my products and more importantly switching to natural and organic products. After she introduced me to the Kjaer Weiss line it seemed so obvious. "I would never use a product containing any of these chemicals on Luke or Harrison, so why would I use them on myself?...EVERYDAY!". After a super simple makeup application I was hooked! I'm definetly a makeup rookie but here are a couple tips that I've learned so far:

  • Be cautious when trying new products. I made the mistake of trying multiple things at once and after I developed a rash it was hard to figure out which product it was from
  • Beauty Hack: Apply face oil before applying foundation especially if you use foundation all over (which I wouldn't recommend) It will prevent your skin from looking cake-like or dry and will give you an overall dewy glow!

Happy almost Valentine's Day! What do you do for the day of love? Now that Luke is in school its added an extra layer to this year's vday planning which I have to admit I'm kind of excited about! I got a great idea from a blogger friend which I will definitely share if I can execute!

I wasn't going to do a Valentine's themed lust list this year and then I saw this dress and was INSPIRED! I'm obsessed with this color pink. I think it works on every skin color and makes a great wedding guest dress. My sister is getting married this year and I'm thinking this may be the one! Loved these earrings from the moment I saw them. I was surprised to see that my favorite online destination for home decor also sold vintage! I also thought these were pretty!
