My Five Minute Makeup Routine!

Hi, lovlies! It's been a almost two months since I posted anything because this Maskcara journey has taken my life by storm! In the best way possible! But I'll save that for another post. I decided to take on the Swiftest Makeup Challenge and finish my whole face before the end of one Taylor Swift song!! Watch the video below to find out how I did or scroll down to read the spoiler! ;) 

Favorite General Conference Quotes | April 2017 - FREE PRINTABLES

Finally getting around to sharing all of my FAVORITE #LDSconf quotes!

General Conference is always such an anticipated time for me. Listening to the prophets and apostles speak is both inspiring and uplifting. I like to prepare myself by thinking of a question or things that are currently happening in my life that are stressing me out. So of course this time around I had our real estate adventure on the brain! Throughout all of the sessions, I felt so touched by everything I heard.

I'm an Independent Maskcara Artist!

Yesterday I did something I never thought I'd do. I became an Independent Maskcara Artist!!! I am so excited to announce this exciting news! I have been following Maskcara for what feels like forever, and have purchased her IIID Foundation. (It's amazing, by the way) I've wanted to become an artist since they announced it, but the timing just wasn't right until now. I have a neighbor who does it, and talking with her made me realize how passionate I am about the makeup and the company.

A Guiding Hand

Throughout my whole life I've felt God's hand, guiding me. Even more so since becoming a parent. Over the last three years I've tried extra hard to listen to the promptings He has given me concerning me and my family. This last year and a half has been a whirlwind of change. We added another child to our family, moved away from our family's to a new city, and my husbands starting his third job. That third job and the inspiration leading up to it are something I want to record, so when it gets hard I can remember that God has a bigger plan for us.

I am the Parent of a Biting Child

Here I am, feeling extra vulnerable and completely defeated. For the last month I've started going to the gym 2-3 times a week and leaving my kids in the childcare center my gym offers. This week Turner, now 3 years old and short for his age, was written up for biting another child. This is a problem we've had before, and I thought he was past it until this incident. I had a long talk with him about how it's not okay to bite others because it hurts them.

Things to Remember the Next Time You Have Mom Guilt

This weekend I had somewhat of a revelation, a realization really, and it all has to do with mom guilt.  If you're anything like me, you feel it all the time. 

I feel it every time my child gets sick. When my child misbehaves or hurts someone. If my house is filthy and I binge watch Netflix instead of cleaning it. When I lose my patience and react out of anger. Anytime I make a choice that isn't the best choice, in comes mom guilt. Sometimes the guilt and weight of parental responsibility becomes so overwhelming I completely breakdown. 

Re-play Recycled Toddler Feeding Set Review & GIVEAWAY!

A few months ago, we received a toddler feeding set from Re-Play Recycled and I was so excited! Up to this point we had only three types of dishes. Nice ceramic/glass tableware, children’s plastic bowls, and paper plates. I was using at least three plastic bowls a day, and who knows how many paper plates, to feed Turner’s bottomless stomach. It’s both annoying and wasteful. Re-Play tableware has changed that for me.
