Pregnancy Blahs

Between being past the holidays and well into January, and 3rd trimester being right around the corner, I have a real case of the pregnancy blahs. . . or maybe the winter blahs. . . or maybe a little bit of both. I told my husband last night that I wasn’t sure how I felt […] Read more…

New Hair

So if any of you have been following me on social media, you know I have been cutting my hair shorter and shorter. I joke with my hairdresser that he has created a short hair monster. My latest cut is the shortest I have ever had my hair. Because I haven’t had short hair before […] Read more…

Haircut

This weekend, I was so excited to finally get my hair done. I haven’t had a hair cut since Austin was 1 month old, so clearly I was long over due. I hadn’t found a hairdresser that I have liked enough to go back to since college, so this weekend I was trying out another […] Read more…

Winter Hand and Nail Care

Prior to Austin, I loved to get my nails done. It was one of those luxuries that just made me feel good. Since he was born, I haven’t had the time or the funds to continue going to the salon, but I still try to keep up with the care at home. Here are a […] Read more…

Daily Make-up Routine

Part of my morning routine is to put on make-up. It makes me feel “human” (especially after a sleepless night with Austin) even if I don’t plan on going anywhere or seeing anyone. However, I am a fan of natural looking make-up to liven up my face and make me look refreshed and awake without […] Read more…
