From the moment I first showed Bubbles the trailer for Planes: Fire & Rescue she has been beside herself with excitement waiting for it to come out.  I told her that she, Mama, and Daddy would all go and see it together and now every time she sees the commercial or the trailer, she bounces around and exclaims “That’s the one we’re going to see in the movie theater!”.  So it’s going to be a family date night.  Or, more accurately, a family date afternoon.

Daytime Date Makeup Essentials #WalgreensPaperless #shop

My daytime date makeup is a little different than what I’d wear for a night on the town, but when I went looking through my makeup stash, I realized I really needed to replace quite a few things.  And when I need cosmetics – or most anything, really – Walgreens is often the first place I stop.

Spa days might be one of my favorite luxuries in life. I love leaving feeling refreshed and pampered, with a massage, my nails done, and some kind of skin treatment. The only problem, is that those moments can really add up, cost-wise.

It’s finally starting to feel like summer is coming with plans to stay. This means more opportunities to be outside enjoying the beautiful weather! These easy tips will have your skin and nails summer ready in no time.

How to Get Summer Ready Skin and Nails

Exfoliate

Consider exfoliating a primer for your canvas. You want to gently buff off all the old, tired skin from the winter and let the new, youthful skin shine through. Your body can stand up to a fairly good scrubbing with an exfoliating cleanser and brush or scrubbing mitts. For your face, choose something more gentle and use your hands or a silicone exfoliater specifically for that purpose. Continue reading »

There’s just something special about spending an evening hanging out with the girls.  Whether it’s drinking coffee and noshing on something sweet, catching a movie, or just hanging out at someone’s house watching some guilty-pleasure housewife-type of show, recharging your batteries with gal pals is important to your mental health.

Of course getting a little glam for Girls’ Night Out is always fun, too.  When your regular “crew” is too young to get into a PG-13 movie by themselves, you may tend to skip a few steps in your normal routine.  I know most days I’m lucky if I manage to smooth on a little primer and swipe a little mascara across my lashes.

I received a sample from KidzCanDesign in exchange for sharing this information with you. All thoughts and words are my own.

If you look at our refrigerator, it’s easy to tell that we have a preschooler.  There are a number of drawings and coloring pages stuck to the front of it, and many others grace the refrigerator at Grammie’s house, too.  She produces them much faster than we can keep up with them, that’s for sure.

As this is my first experience with all the “Mama, I made this for you!” drawings, I have a really hard time throwing any of them away.  What isn’t being displayed has been collected into a box to sort through at a future time.  Many of them I’m sure I’ll hang on to until she’s older, as some of them are really pretty good for a 3-year-old.
