Stitch Fix Maternity – Box Two!

Stitch Fix Maternity - empire waist stripe top

View my first box here! To recap, when I first saw that Stitch Fix was coming out with a Maternity Box version - I was SUPER excited.  (They've been around for more than 5 years curating boxes of clothing out across the US) I saw it unfold on Instagram and wished this was around when I was pregnant before. And Then... I found out I was pregnant again. I knew I had to sign up! I received my first box in April and loved all the items and loved that everything fit. SO important.  I scheduled my second fix to arrive about a month before I speak at a blog conference in San Diego (ConnectHer. So … [Read more...]

My daily driving routine is pretty basic and routine.  It doesn't cover a large part of our valley, but every now and again I venture somewhere different and find something new.  I was driving to pick up some items for Luke's bday party and noticed that one of the building was getting a face lift from a dark brown to a creamy white.  The western looking building has been the same forever.

I'm working on another video of What's In The Box - the items I bought, tried, and want to return :) … [Read more...]

Contour Makeup – Which Is Better?

Contour Makeup - Maskcara vs Wet n Wild

So, you know I'm building up my makeup repertoire since last year.  I've shared some of my favorites, and even some looks to make with it.  I've been spying up the Maskcara palette for awhile, and finally bought it earlier this month.  Except, I don't love it. Why? Because I need more coverage throughout the day.  So with all the YouTube videos I've been watching, I learned about the Wet n Wild contour kit and put both to the test.  Each half is a created look with the contour makeup.   What do you think of my intro? Decided to be a little creative Friday night in between puke … [Read more...]
