Mascara that you need…assuming you wear mascara.
Mascara that you need…assuming you wear mascara.

I want Rodan + Fields Lash Boost.  Every time I see a post (which is a lot because I think every other one of my friends sells R+F) of the Lash Boost, I’m jealous!  I am a sucker for great lashes, and God did not bless me with to-die-for lashes.  I have lashes, so I’m grateful for that; but I want amazing lashes!  I just can’t swallow spending hundreds on stuff to make my lashes grow…it doesn’t seem financially responsible when I’m a part time high school math teacher.  I mean, if I were still […]

Good Product Alert!
Good Product Alert!

Eek!  You need a small gift for someone, and you don’t know what to give!  I’m here to the rescue- get her an Elf Lip Tint in Perfect Pink from Target.  It’s $6, but if you use your Target Red Card, then it’s only $5.82.  If you have a $5 gift limit then give an Elf lipstick for $3, and a Natural Lash Kit (aka fake eyelashes) for $2.  Yes!  You read that correctly- you can get a fake eyelash KIT for $2!  Fake eyelashes and the glue you need to put them on for […]

Fave products- alert!
Fave products- alert!

I have been using a great HD primer by Smashbox called Photo Finish, and this tiny little tube has lasted me a long time.  It’s nice to put on under your foundation when you know you’re going to be taking pictures.  I didn’t use it every day because 1- it’s expensive ($36 http://www.ulta.com/photo-finish-foundation-primer?productId=xlsImpprod3590041) and 2- I wasn’t planning to take pictures with an HD camera every day of my life.  It is silky smooth and really does feel quite amazing going on your skin.  I’d put it on after my sunscreen/lotion because I’m in my mid […]

keeping Shutterfly in business
keeping Shutterfly in business

I can’t say that I just LOVE the task of making a photo album, but I do love having them so I feel it’s worth the effort.  I’ve never really been into scrapbooking, so creating memories through photo albums are my preference.  I’ve always used Shutterfly for these projects because they send you 100 coupons and emails about Free this, and Free that, and __% off of everything!  It makes you wonder what it REALLY costs for them to make this stuff when they can slap discounts left and right.  It’s like going to Kohl’s […]

Mommy’s Sippy Cup
Mommy’s Sippy Cup

Yes, I’m posting this in the middle of the day.  No, I’m not drinking in the middle of the day…at least not today.  No judgement here if you are lushing it up by the pool; if anything I’m jealous!  A drink now and then is good for us, and we all need a sippy cup for that drink!  I like to fill mine with wine…or Jesus juice as the RHOD lovingly refer to it.  I prefer a good white wine that’s either a pinot grigio, riesling, or moscato.  I recently discovered a California white white by […]

Good Book!  Perfect for Summer!
Good Book! Perfect for Summer!

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty You know a murder happens, but you don’t know who does it, who’s the victim, or how they die….until the end.  It’s written very creatively!  The story begins before the incident, but it does these witness flashbacks throughout the book from people recollecting what happened.  Truthfully, it took me a few chapters to get hooked, but when I was hooked I was hooked.  I turned into one of those bookworms you see that walks down a hallway with their nose in a book because “they just can’t put it down.” […]

For the Right Reasons
For the Right Reasons

I finished another book!  For the people that can read a book in a day, this is not a big accomplishment that it’s May and I’ve finished a book.  For me, it’s huge that it’s May and I’ve finished TWO books!  I don’t have a ton of time to read, and when I do get a quiet moment to myself I usually want to flip on a Real Housewives episode or another episode of Southern Charm!  I had 2 books brought to me recently though, and they have both been great, so I’m going to […]

Champagne taste on a Target budget
Champagne taste on a Target budget

I want my hair to look like I pay a stylist daily, but I’m on a Target budget (this is an upgrade from the Wal-Mart budget).  Look good.  Feel good.  It’s a simple concept, but it can be hard.  We can all make excuses, but the truth is that if it is important, then we will make time for it and/or budget for it.  I’m here to help you narrow through the crap and tell you what’s good in the world of hair to save you time.  Now, I am not a hair stylist, and […]

Great (cheap) product alert!
Great (cheap) product alert!

I was sitting in class the other day, and one of my students busted out her Maybelline Baby Lips before the bell rang for her to go to her next class.  I asked her if she liked it- I’d seen it but never thought to try it- and she said she loved it!  Well, later that week I saw one of the Housewives on TV bust out her Baby Lips!  I was thinking, “what do other people know that I don’t?”  If there is some sort of amazing lip gloss, chap stick, lip balm-something on […]

For the Love!

For the love, don’t forget to get your wife/mother something for Mother’s Day!  I am here to help!  I have a sweet, inexpensive gift that you could order on Amazon (and have here in 2 days…what did we ever do before you, Amazone Prime?!) and check something important off of your list.  Get the mother in your life the book, For the Love by Jen Hatmaker.  It is a book about how to get through life with grace, and Jen offers advice in a humorous way that is focused around Christianity. I am not particularly […]

Favorite Accessories!
Favorite Accessories!

When the dog bites…when the bee stings…when I’m feeling bad…I simply think of my favorite things (Millie b. Designs), and then I don’t feeeeeellllll sooooo bad!  Please imagine Julie Andrews singing that and not me…it will be a much more enjoyable experience.  And if you were born before 1995, I know you’re thinking, “Who is Julie Andrews?!” So one of my sweet, sweet friends is Kari Brock (we used to cheer together for the Falcons), and she birthed an amazing little local success story.  (She also recently birthed a sweet little boy who is precious […]

Save Your Feet!
Save Your Feet!

Okay, I’m going to share something not so fabulous about me. First of all, I would like to point out that there are plenty of un-fabulous things about me, but why in the world would I want to point all of them out?! Let’s just fool the world into thinking that I only have a couple of rough qualities! So my feet are dry. Like, real dry. Like, sometimes Mike thinks that sandpaper are rubbing on him kinda dry. In the winter, who cares? In the summer when I am wearing sandals or flipflops it […]

VOLUME!  Gettin’ some lift
VOLUME! Gettin’ some lift

Need volume in your hair? Okay, if your hair is like mine, then it needs the perfect combination so it won’t be flat and stuck to my head like I just stepped out of the house in the dead of the humid summer in July in Georgia. I’m not complaining, because let’s be honest, I’m in the middle of chemo and I’m not going to lose my hair (thank God for that blessing)! My hair grows slow as you know what, so the idea of losing my hair would mean that I would have short […]
