If I love anything it's a good beauty tutorial. That being said, the beauty how tos that I'm most drawn to are EASY!

Skin baring styles are here for the season, after all, and I'm not aiming to sport dry, splotchy skin. I want it to be nice and smooth,...

Spring Hair Care Essentials: #BeyondGentle

hair care

We have partnered with SoCozy for this sponsored post. All opinions are our own and not edited by the sponsor. I don't know about your kids, but mine don't exactly relish bath time. Every time I say it's time to get in the shower all I hear are groans. Bubble baths don't even do the trick anymore. Man do I miss that stage when bubble baths were a thrill. Bwah! And asking them to wash their hair? Forget about it! So, I have to be really careful about the products that I use on my wee...

How to Get Your Lips Ready for Spring

lip colors

If you know me, you know for many moons I've been pretty loyal to one brand when it comes to lip color. Every season I get at least a few of their hot new shades and they never disappoint. That being said, for the past few years, I've also tried to branch out and include other brands in my lip color go-tos list and one of those just so happens to be a budget friendly brand. e.l.f Cosmetics won't cost you an arm and a leg and it seriously delivers. In fact, I tested out...
