I’d be lying to you if I said my blogging hiatus was intentional, or if I told you that my lack of posts doesn’t make me feel like a failure. I truly feel unfulfilled when I’m not writing regularly, so please believe me when I say I want to come back with all my heart. A lot has been going on and I have so so so much to share, but I’m still waiting for the stars to align before giving too much away. This quick post is simply to let you know I’m alive, and that I have been feeling so truly unfulfilled lately that I have started cooking dinner every night…. and baking?! Basically, I am not myself, and it is a very strange thing for me to be barefoot in the kitchen baking a berry crisp on a Tuesday night. I’ll be back soon with a lot more to say, trust. Until then – Happy Wednesday!

I’ve (obviously) been missing, but I promise I have good reasons. Married life has been so truly exciting and this new chapter has been one hell of a ride. But that’s a story for another time.

Real Talk? I’m a sucker for the Kardashians. They are business women who GET IT and have found a way to make “being famous for being famous” into a profitable lifestyle. They might sell their souls a little bit in this way, but I can’t bring myself to be mad at it. I’m sorry but I am also not sorry at all.

The truth about these lip glosses is that they are the same quality you’ll get from MAC or anything at Sephora, only these are so exclusive because of her limited releases. Brilliant. Strategy. Continue Reading…

Beauty Must Have: KAYO Body Beautiful Creme

June 15, 2016
kayo better body cream

Smooth, touchable skin is often an afterthought for me. Silly, I know, but I just always forget the whole lotion step after I get out of the shower. It only occurs to me to make it happen when I’m trying to go somewhere in a skirt. Oops.

When I was sent a sample of this KAYO Body Beautiful Creme I didn’t think much of it. Just another lotion to carry around or let hang in my vanity. However, I was gladly proven wrong. I fell in love at first application, and my skin hasn’t been the same since.
