THE SCARY SIDE OF MOTHERHOOD


The day I gave birth to my sweet little girl, I was filled with so many overpowering emotions. I was intensely happy of course, but there was also a little bit of fear. 

I'm positive every mother has experienced this feeling at some point in their child's life. 
I worried about keeping her safe. There are so many dangers in the world, and when I first looked into my daughter's big hazel eyes, I felt an intense sense of responsibility to keep her from any harm. "I will take care of you, I will keep you safe" I promised her. 

What I didn't realize at the time was that despite how hard I might try to protect her, bad things can still happen, and that is the truly scary part.

SUMMER JEWELRY WISH LIST

Y'all, summer is just around the corner, and I can't wait! 

One of the best things about this time of the year is the fashion. Stores are always filled with fun, bright prints and adorable accessories during the summer season. In my opinion, jewelry is an absolute essential to complete any outfit. It can really act as a finishing touch that pulls everything together and just gives it that extra little oomph. 

Summer jewelry collections have always been my favorite. They tend to be more colorful and enticing, which I love! A simple, plain tank can take on a whole different look with the perfect statement necklace. 

So, I thought I would whip up a post to share the gorgeous jewelry that I am lusting after for the upcoming summer season. Hope you enjoy! 



MAY 2016 IPSY BAG

Hi everyone! My Ipsy bag came in the mail a few days ago, and I was super excited to see what goodies I got, and to try out some new makeup and beauty products! This is my second month subscribed to Ipsy, and I am loving it. It is such a cute subscription service. 

Don't know what Ipsy is? Check out my post here where I go a bit more in depth about it. I want to make this post short, sweet, and to the point.  

So, without further ado, here is what I got in the May 2016 Ipsy bag! 


5 THINGS TO DO ON A RAINY DAY

If you're like me, the weather can really affect your mood. I love bright and sunny days; they make me feel positive, energetic, and ready to take on the world. Rainy days tend to have the opposite effect on me. They make me feel really lazy and I usually end up laying around and watching Netflix all day. 

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love lazy days, but when the place you live in has rain in the forecast for the next two weeks straight (thanks Texas weather), I still want to be able to be productive and do something a bit more worthwhile than watch t.v in my pjs for days on end. Of course there will be some Netflix days thrown in there, but there are so many other great things you can do on a rainy day.

So, I thought I'd make a quick post on this gloomy Texas day to share with y'all some of my fav ways to pass the time on a rainy day. Hope you enjoy! 

WORTH THE HYPE? MY REVIEW OF THE PHYSICIAN'S FORMULA BUTTER BRONZER

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts this past week and a half, finals had me super stressed and busy, something I'm sure all my fellow college students can relate to. I also decided to change up the template of my blog (as you can probably see), and I am seriously in love with it! I still have a little bit of tweaking to do, but it's pretty much done. I hope you like it! 

Anyways, back to the point of this post. I'm sure a decent amount of you have heard about the Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer. If not, I'm excited to introduce you to it! This product has a lot of hype around it right now, even though I believe it came out a couple months ago. I heard about the Butter Bronzer through one of my fav YouTube makeup gurus a couple weeks ago. Not long after that, several more of the makeup gurus I watch were talking about how much they love it. 

Since then, I have been itching to get ahold of it! It was hard to find, it seemed everywhere I went it was sold out, or they only had the lighter shade. I finally found it in the shade I needed ("Bronzer" instead of "Light Bronze") a few days ago, and I am IN LOVE!
