B True Beauty Winter Skin Care

winterskincare

The last few weeks here in Southern Indiana have been cold. Rigid cold. The air burns your face when you run out just to check the mail, cold. January is always about the time that the weather begins to wreak havoc on my sensitive skin. I always have to use more products and extra moisturizers just to make sure I don't get cracked, red, peeling … [Read more...]

The Ugly Side of Beauty

the-ugly-side-of-beauty

I have some thoughts I wanted to share for me, and all of my fellow Beauty Bloggers of the world. I have noticed, through occasional mean comments or posts on social media, that because we do beauty posts and share close up photos, some people think we're being vain. They assume we're super into ourselves or that we love looking in the … [Read more...]

I Swear I’m Still Here

You may have noticed that I haven't been posting as often- and that was totally intentional on my part. Christmas is my most favorite time of year, and I really wanted to take the opportunity to soak up every last moment of it with my little family this year. I have been brought to tears several times over the last few weeks, coming to the … [Read more...]

New Year, Old Me

new-year-old-me

As this year comes to a close, I've found myself reflecting on the lessons that I've learned. On the person that I've become- am still becoming. Each year shapes us differently, life's circumstances a chisel, ever defining us. Some years, I've learned, more rigorously than others. This year I've come to a revelation- one that has changed who I … [Read more...]

Christmas Bedroom on a Budget

xmasroomtitle

I love decorating for the Holidays- it's one of my favorite things to do. But, for some reason, I have never really included my bedroom in the decorating. Crazy, right? However, spending money on Christmas decor when I'm already spending like crazy felt wrong to me somehow. That's why I decided to share with you how I decorated my bedroom for the … [Read more...]

Boy Mom Gift Guide

I've got an almost 5 year old and buying him gifts this year has been fun and exciting... and exhausting. He tells me, "I want that, I want that, I want that" about most everything we come across. If you're in the same boat as I am, I've put together some great gift ideas for my fellow boy mommas. Your little men (or ladies too, these gifts aren't … [Read more...]

Flawless in 5 for the Holidays

flawlessin5title

Let's face it- it's the most wonderful time of the year! But that also translates to the busiest time of year. And on top of all of the cookie baking, present wrapping, and decorating, there's hardly time to get ourselves ready. Most days you'll find me rocking a mom bun and yoga pants. On the days I actually do get to leave the house and run … [Read more...]

A Helping Hand for the Holidays

I usually do a post like this every year when the Holidays approach. I love being able to find lots of information in one central place instead of having to do extensive searches. One of my favorite parts of the Holidays is the opportunity to give back. And as my little guy is growing, I want to teach him the importance of giving during this … [Read more...]
