Your Morning Makeup Routine {Giveaway}

Morning Makeup Routine Giveaway

What is your morning makeup routine? Do you have one? When it comes to “makeup must haves”, mine are very simple. I need to wash my face, put on some cream, throw on a light coating of makeup to hide skin imperfections, toss on a bit of powder and I’m ready for the day. Those are my minimum requirements if I am leaving the house. I will admit, like any busy Mom, that there definitely are mornings where I am at the bus stop without the makeup, but you had better believe that as soon as I come home I … Continue reading

Back to School Sleep Routine with Orange Naturals #ONatural

If you were to ask me what the biggest struggle we have in our house with regards to routines is, hands down it would be about sleep! From the moment my daughter was born, she hasn’t been a good sleeper. She was WIDE AWAKE screaming for her first 12 hours of life and the struggles continued on throughout her infant years and continues to this day, at the age of nine. Of course, we have tried all of kinds of tricks, some of them have worked and some of them haven’t, but at the end, she continues to have a … Continue reading

There is NO Such Thing as a Stupid Question #ShineStrong {Giveaway} #PGMom

ERASE the phrase “Stupid Question” from your vocabulary! In this day and age, it is even MORE important that we raise our daughters to be strong and confident! They are faced with so many challenges growing up. I want my daughter to be confident (but not TOO confident) and to have personal strength. I want her personality to shine out upon the world and for it to land upon many smiling faces. I feel the need to add a side note here… There are SO many amazing campaigns like this, surrounding women and girls, I want to express the importance … Continue reading

Oh No Hair Giveaway

Prevent Damaged Hair with Garnier Fructis #DamageEraser

Fructis Damage Eraser

I have naturally curly/wavy hair. It sounds nice, but in truth, it isn’t beautiful curls, it is kind of all over the place. I do feel lucky in the sense that I always have the option to wear my hair “curly”, but if I am honest with you, which I ALWAYS am, I wear it curly when I am feeling lazy. Admittedly, this happens more often than I would like. Because I work from home, I tend not to get all “dolled up” (do I EVER really get truly dolled up, no, that isn’t my style) too often, but when … Continue reading

A few weeks ago, I was introduced to a very interesting hair care product called Nioxin. This product line helps to provide you with fuller, thicker hair with regular use. Fabrizio at P&H Salon and Spa made me feel very welcome and informed me of the benefits of using Nioxin.

Checkout how exhausted I looked: NIOXIN uses advanced technologies to deliver thicker, fuller, denser-looking hair. I shared my story about my hair loss in a post a couple of … Continue reading

What is Your Oral Care Routine? {Giveaway} #pgmom

Oral-B Glide Pro-Health

I’ve always had a pretty good Oral Care Routine. I brush in the morning, after breakfast (and coffee), I often will rinse with mouthwash after lunch and I brush, floss and rinse with mouthwash before bed. I haven’t always been as good about flossing, but ever since having babies, flossing has become a part of my DAILY routine and I cannot go to bed without completing my full routine. Call it me making a healthy choice, or perhaps it is a bit of OCD, but my mouth just doesn’t feel right unless I brush, floss and rinse with mouthwash. I … Continue reading

Hair Loss in Women is More Common Than you Realize – @Nioxinproducts {#GIVEAWAY} #pgMom

healthy scalp with nioxin products

Well over a year ago, my sister got married. It was a happy and wonderful time, but I think my body was experiencing more stress than I realized, because a terrible thing happened. I lost a chunk of my hair. One day, I was running my fingers through my hair (I feel like I need to cue some type of cheesy commercial music here) when all of a sudden my fingers hit a smooth, slippery patch of SCALP! I was completely bald in one spot and it wasn’t a small spot either (or to me it wasn’t), it was over … Continue reading
