BEAUTY + WELLBEING

How good of a juggler are you? Work, kids, laundry, and cooking…oh and make yourself look like your husband’s favorite movie star too. I live a very real life – which means in the priority of things health and beauty concerns often fall to the bottom of my “to do” list, but it shouldn’t.

We should never lose touch with “us”. We need to make time to be girls, and Step Moms. I want to chat about things that smell good and make us feel pretty. I want to talk about how to take care of ourselves and be healthy more than just trying on some new lipstick.

Be inspired to try something new. Take a break and allow yourself to feel gorgeous and let it shine through.

ONE STEP AT A TIME

With muscles burning my foot landed on the last stair for the sixth time running up them.  It has begun – I have officially started to workout. Running – outside – at 5AM – is perfect (I know many people are cringing, but I am an early morning person).  The sun light is just starting […]

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?

If you are saying YES!!! – Good for you…apparently you have not tasted my Mother’s fudge… If the idea of trying on last year’s bathing suit (did people ever really “bathe” in these?  Weird…) makes you want to pull on a pair of yoga pants, plop on the sofa, (I should use davenport if I […]
