Look at this hairstyle, you guys! It looks complicated, right? I’m telling you it is beyond easy! Yes, I say that even though my friend Kim from Nicol Artistry was the one that did it for these photos, but I’ve been able to recreate it myself. Promise! Which is why I’m sharing how to do your date night hair and makeup in under 30 minutes. Because, while it’s easy, it’s also super fast! And isn’t that important when you have a date waiting?
Is it terrible that I just want to fast forward through the next few months to spring? As much as I’ve been loving this rain I’m getting so excited for warmer weather, late night sunsets, and a little bit of a tan! This floral blouse is so pretty and has two on-trend details for spring: it’s off-the-shoulder and has bell sleeves! Sometimes I hear about the trends and I’m like “Uh no.” Case in point: those furry loafers. I just can’t get behind those! I just can’t. But these two trends I’m totally on board with. Both are feminine and totally accessible. Plus my mom wouldn’t roll her eyes at either. At least I don’t think she would!
During pregnancy, everyone will say that you have that “pregnant glow.” I heard it a lot but didn’t really realize it until looking back on some of my maternity photos. For some reason, you lose that glow post-baby, ironically when you’re probably the happiest you’ve ever been. I’m guessing it’s because of the change in hormones, and also the sleep deprivation. I think the lack of sleep is definitely what stole my glow! While I don’t have time these days for long skincare and beauty routines, there are a few products up my sleeve that are totally helping this mama out! Read on to learn more about my new mom beauty essentials.
