L’Oreal Lumi Cushion First Impression

Oh man, you know me and my makeup obsession. I have been loving my L'Oreal Lumi foundation and saw the Cushion at CVS - but had NO idea what on earth that meant.  But the packaging was so adorable.  Then, I saw the video from Long Story Short with Megan & Wendy and understood what the Cushion meant.  So, I went shopping. The L'Oreal Lumi Cushion - oh man. I'm so torn.  I love how easy it is to apply.  I just flip open the lid and use either my beauty blender or the foundation brush from Tarte.  But, it's SO THIN. I swear the coverage is more similar to a BB cream than a foundation. … [Read more...]

Come Shop With Me – Target January

I'm a wee bit behind sharing some of my lifestyle vlogs that I have featured on my YouTube channel (have you subscribed?).  You might recall I got a new camera for my birthday.  I used it for a bit but wasn't a huge fan of the slow auto-focus.  When on the go, I wanted to have something with a quick reaction since I'd be sharing products and might be doing close ups and then back to just talking.  That camera was NOT cutting it.  I did some more research and found the one that has turned out to be amazing!  The Canon PowerShot G7 X is all that and more. It's compact but does have a bit of … [Read more...]

We're preparing for baby now, and last week we bunked Aubrey and Luke together in her room to leave Luke's old room for the baby.  The transition has gone better than I was worried about except for one thing. When one wakes up crying in the … [Read more...]

Prepared Meals – Fresh to Your Door – Freshly Review

Fresh Meals To Your Door - Freshly Review

Freshly was kind enough to send me a start set of 6 meals to try out.  Below is my impression! If you're searching for a company to send fresh meals to someone (new parents, someone recovering from a surgery, a parent who is solo-parenting while the other is on a business trip) - PLEASE read on.  Spoiler alert but I loved the ease of everything that arrived.  Receiving a shipment of food without having to cut, chop, marinate, etc - and heat up in 1-2 minutes is just pure awesomeness. Ok so what is Freshly?  They're prepared meals delivered right to your door.  There's a variety of options … [Read more...]

The Magic of BB Creams

BB Creams from CVS

I purchased some different BB Creams from CVS and put them all to the test. The first one I tried was instant love at first sight.  But, I kept going and tried 3 more  brands.  Recapping why I liked or didn't like them in today's YouTube video!   The brands I tried were by Rimmel, Physicians Formula, Maybelline, and Revlon.  All have SPF, all are tinted.  One clear winner! … [Read more...]

The Day Designer at Target

The Day Designer At Target | Whitney English

As you know, I'm a planner junkie.  I've written about the MomAgenda, the Martha Stewart at Staples, Emily Ley's Simplified Planner, and I have a new one for you!  Now, you might think that this planner hopping means I'm dissatisfied and can't find the holy grail of planners.  But that's just not true.  My life is constantly changing, and my needs are as well.  This upcoming year (well, July), I actually will be using Emily Ley's Weekly Simplified Planner for personal use as I've discovered that the Daily offers too much space and I don't have enough to fill it.  I also use a separate planner … [Read more...]
