When you are wearing confidence, you are always stunning. Do you love yourself? Not necessarily your outside self, what about your inside self? Your core. The stuff that makes you unique to the rest of the world. I didn’t always love myself. I was lacking in confidence. I gauged my self worth based on how […]
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. Let’s talk about the fact that carving out time to workout for Step Mom’s is just flat out a struggle – well it is for me anyway! I invite you to take some time here to be girly. Be inspired to try something new. Take a break and allow yourself to feel gorgeous and let it shine through.
What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you see a beautiful confident women staring back at you? Do you smile when you look in the mirror, or do you frown focusing on what you perceive as your flaws? I spent my weekend at a Mom blog conference. It was empowering to […]
Making homemade remedies is something I have fallen in love with, I hope to pass that on. Midwestern winters leave us a little dry and flaky, just saying…we all could use a little help in the department of moisture in Spring. If you are ready to bring back the natural glow to your body – […]
A woman’s true beauty shines through from the inside via her smile. We work so hard at trying to change so many things about ourselves, we often forget to appreciate what we have. How many facial creams do you own? How many body lotions? How many hair products? Could you count the number of pieces […]
Goldie Locks had the right attitude. She knew what she wanted and knew how to get it. She wanted the one that was just right. Me too Goldie, me too. Blue jeans are a great example – they have to be just the right fit. I don’t like being uncomfortable – ever. Not in the […]
A SMILE IS ALL YOU NEED Swimsuit magazines are invading my mailbox, total workout motivation. As I page through the glossy pages and gaze upon the goddesses that have not eaten more than a lettuce leaf in two weeks, I have to face reality. I am never going to look like a swimsuit model. Age and my […]
Will we EVER be able to Run Outside? Living in Wisconsin has left us in a deep freeze. No matter what the ground hog has to say, I know Mother Nature will grace us with spring eventually…right??? One way I try to beat the winter blahs is by getting active. In the summer I ran […]
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 […]
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 […]
How good of a juggler are you? Work, kids, laundry, and cooking…oh and make yourself 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 the “to do” list. I sincerely want to work […]
