    3 Step Skincare Routine For Dry Skin

    My skincare routine is something I’m often asked about like how I maintain my skin, what products I use, or if I see a skin care specialist. I’ll admit that there are no special or specific brands that I use for my routine. Instead, I use simple ingredients at home that cost much less and are healthy for our skin. Lately, Instagram has been the main source of beauty hacks/trends and we’ve been sold on numerous amounts of products to buy. So let’s kick it old school for a while and use some homemade recipes. Aside from it being cost-efficient, it’s pretty darn good for the health of your skin.…

    HELLO 2018 | Better Late Than Never + Where Have I Been?

    Where have I been?… and what’s brought me back to blogging. For everyone who was actively following my posts noticed I suddenly vanished from the blog scene completely. No heads up, warning, or update on what happened and after all that time it was exactly what I needed. Let me be honest… at first, in January 2016 I started slowing down because I was having a hard time balancing my personal life, being a full-time mother, and blogging altogether. What I loved became a chore, something I didn’t genuinely feel like doing, and a high-stress factor. I wasn’t happy with myself at the time which made me lose complete motivation and passion for…

    Learning Not To Swear Around My Children 

    Let’s just start by saying I’m not a saint. From time to time I get struck with so much frustration that I tend to have a slip up, or I get so extremely excited that I tend to use those words we fear to hear our young ones repeat. I’m not exactly sure what it is that causes it, could it have to do with me being young? Or is it just something thats slipped its way  into my routine while growing up? Regardless its something I definitely have to work on. A little while back I was having a normal day with my kids while cleaning up, making them food, teaching them…

    My Current Everyday "Go – To" Makeup

    I’ll start by being honest and say that I don’t wear makeup everyday. Most days I don’t go much further than the park across my street still not even applying makeup. Bare face is my number one go-to, mostly due to my time restriction (I don’t feel the need or want to wear it daily). The most I get in on an ordinary day is a winged liner, then I cheat by putting my glasses right on. It took me years after starting to wear makeup to really become comfortable with my natural “bare face” again. I’ve tried tons of different types of makeup and brands over the years, that I would say I…

    Series of Events.. My Two Weeks in Jamaica.

    Hello everyone, It’s been a while since I’ve been keeping up with my blogging considering how much I preached about writing while I was on vacation for two weeks in Jamaica. My expectations were pretty high with how I wanted this whole thing to turn out, imagining me writing something every few days, taking many beautiful pictures, while soaking up some serious vitamin D. On the other hand it was quite the opposite.. Arriving at the hotel with 10 family members (5 adults/ 5 Children) all of our luggage was unloaded and left in the front of the hotel with no one to assist us with carrying it in considering…
