"No Makeup" Makeup with Maskcara Beauty

Lately I have been feeling overwhelmed with my schedule, or lack thereof. One of the things that picks me up every time is how quickly I can feel more ready with Maskcara makeup to take on whatever comes my way! During a Maskcara training webinar, Cara shared an analogy about hitting a WALL in your life and how you naturally want to wait for someone else to come give you a boost/help you over. She went on to say that we all need to be the HERO in our own lives. When you wait for some to solve your problems, or wait for a certain thing to happen to make it easier, your really just wasting time you could be climbing and overcoming. It really touched me and it was exactly what I needed to hear right now. 

I may not always remember everything, or be organized, or good at managing my time, etc; But I am learning from my mistakes and scaling walls without really realizing it. I CAN DO HARD THINGS. And so can YOU!!! Whether your momming, working, creating, struggling or all of the above. Please remember that you can overcome it. Even if it means asking for help. You can be your own Hero!!! 

Now I'm going to put some makeup on and conquer the rest of the hours of this day! I hope you enjoy this tutorial! I'm reallllyyyyy trying to post more regularly on here, because it is so therapeutic and fun for me. Let me know what other blog posts you want to see from me and I'll start planning it!

Love you all so much!! 

One Piece Swimsuit + Kimono Combo
Modest Suit + Kimono Combo || Dashing Looks || A Dash of Salter

These have been sitting on my camera for a whole month and I'm just barely getting around to posting them. Things have been a little crazy over here these days. Anyway, let's talk summer and swimsuits. I don't know about you, but I rocked the tankini trend in high school and for the first few years of my marriage.  However, I always find myself feeling the most comfortable in a one piece. No pulling up, no tugging down, it just stays in place - minus the wedgies - TMI, sorry.

I'm always on the lookout for cute one pieces. When I was grocery shopping about a month ago, I saw this cute black and white stripe suit and, without hesitation, grabbed it to try on. I fell in love with it - and it's price tag made the decision to get it even easier - it was only $16 dollars! If you know me, you know I am all about a bargain, and for swimwear it doesn't get much better than that. 

I decided to take a few photos of myself - self timer style - to show you guys this modest, cute, affordable swimsuit. If you have always been too good to buy things from Walmart, this swimsuit might change your mind. Also, the swimsuit + kimono trend is killing me. IT'S AMAZINGGGG.  Read more about my obsession with kimonos, here

This Catalina swimsuit was purchased at Walmart for $16. (I love that the straps are convertible to criss cross in the back! SO CUTE.) I saw this kimono at Hollister on sale for only $11, so naturally I bought it. They are sold out online, but I have some similar options at the bottom of this post. My sad floppy hat is falling apart, but it was only $1 so I'm not too upset about it. Shades were $5 at Target! Shop the look down below!

So that's it! I hope you like this look as much as I do. What is your favorite swimsuit trend? What other ways do your style your swimsuit or kimono? Let me know in the comments below!
