Each year, Sephora has their annual sale for Rouge, VIB, and Insider members. Between April 20-23, VIB members can use the code Continue reading “My Top Picks: Sephora’s VIB Sale”
Before we begin, let me state that I am not a Beautycounter ambassador. I was honestly just curious to try their products because I like their ingredient lists and I’ve heard great things. The products listed were samples I got to try for a period before purchasing my own.
Up until last year, the most advanced thing I did for my face was use Clinique’s 3-step program (I use Type 3). I’d been using it for two years and I finally Continue reading “Honest Review: Beautycounter Products”
Another weekend, another coffee shop to visit.
This time, we stopped by Continue reading “Review: Momentum Coffee”
Ever since Dill and I figured out what we wanted to do with the front room in our house, I’ve been so excited to slowly fill it up. Our dining table sits in our breakfast room near the kitchen because we wanted to be able to use it on a daily basis, especially when we have kids. We knew a formal dining room wouldn’t get much, or any, use in our house.
After living in our house for four months, Dill and I still had boxes full of Continue reading “Home Office Update”

Here’s what my day looks like. I wake up around 6:00am (more like 6:40am, because snooze buttons), I’m out the door by 7:10am and I’m at work to start my day at 7:30am.

I feel VERY blessed to work this schedule because it is so refreshing to have a three day weekend every other week. However, it makes for longer days. The last thing I Continue reading “Lunch-Time Gym Time”
Valentine’s day can be so hard to shop for. Dill and I vary year-to-year on whether we want fun/entertaining, fancy, or no gifts at all. Whichever way we go, we always try to write letters to each other, personalized to share our heart Continue reading “Valentine’s Day: Personalized Wooden Watch (+ Giveaway)”
Our living room finally got a very much needed update this weekend! Coffee tables make a huge difference in any living room and finding the right one to fit the style you’re going for can be hard. Like, comically-contemplating-for-months hard. I even took Continue reading “Modern Coffee Table”
It’s not impossible but it’s definitely a little harder to find unique, quality coffee shops (AKA not Starbucks) in our suburb area. Next on my list of nearby coffee shops to visit was THIRD GEN COFFEE. This one is located in an older Continue reading “A Review: THIRD GEN COFFEE”
Lately, I’ve been struggling with the gotta-have-its. They’re similar to the need-to-knows (which I also deal with) but applies when you’re envying someone else’s material things, life, hair, vacation, etc. I wouldn’t even Continue reading “The Gotta-Have-Its”
