Fresh Pretzels At Your Service – Pretzilla

Pretzilla - fresh pretzels delivered to your door

Once the morning sickness subsides, ask any pregnant woman what she wants to eat.  ALL THE THINGS will probably be her answer.  Sometimes cravings are things she usually enjoys.  And sometimes they're very random and peculiar - ya know, like pickles.  Big 5 pound tubs of pickles.  (been there, done that). Last month I got the most amazing email in my inbox.  Pretzilla wanted to know if I'd like some fresh pretzels DELIVERED.  I love love pretzels.  When in St. Louis, I loved that every where we ate, there were pretzels on the menu.

We received a 2015 Mazda CX-9 to drive around during our journey to the midwest. All opinions and photos are mine below. Thank you!

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...]
