Travel Hacks With Huggies One & Done Wipes

Traveling is its own special kind of stressful mess. After 10 years of experience traveling solo, and navigated dozens of airports and modes of public transportation all over the world, I’ve learned to embrace the mess! Yes, embrace it, and even find a way to laugh at it! The memories I make while traveling shouldn’t be defined by the messes that inevitably must be dealt with on the journey! Ideally, travel is always glamorous, but with the amount of traveling most people engage in, it’s simply not feasible to expect everything to go smoothly! The one thing I can rely on though, no matter the mess, or the occasion, are Huggies® One & Done® Refreshing wipes! My mother used to say, “you can clean your whole house with a Huggies if you have to!” And she was right! Huggies One & Done wipes are a necessary part of my life (and I don’t even have kids – yet!) The amount of times I’ve used a Huggies wipe to clean something is probably in the thousands by now!

Neutrogena Back-To-School Autumn Makeup

My back-to-school planning consists of a morning routine that involves doing multiple things at once to save time! I currently live in Nashville, and the traffic congestion seems to triple as soon as all the schools are back in session! I’ve been out of Uni for a few years but I still have a back-to-school routine to ensure I look and feel my best before rushing out the door to get to the office on time! My sensitive skin needs constant TLC, so skipping my skin care products before applying makeup is a no-no, even if I’m in a rush! Thank goodness for Neutrogena® SkinClearing® makeup! I’m able to apply my foundation, concealer and setting powder while nourishing my skin with dermatologist developed formula that boosts the power of salicylic acid by breaking through oil and unclogging pores for fast acne relief. Neutrogena® SkinClearing® makeup covers up and helps prevent breakouts while you wear it! Having clear skin gives me confidence, and when I feel confident, I look my best!

As Summer ends, and school is back in session, I’m always moved by the beautiful jewel tones of the changing Fall leaves! The tutorial I’m showing you today is my fail-proof, wear-to-school-or-work, Autumn-inspired makeup look!

DIY Mother's Day Story Book Gift with American Greetings

Mother’s Day has always been one of the most joyous holidays to celebrate in my family! My brothers and I are beyond lucky to have a Mother who has been unconditionally there for us through every stage of our lives, and every year we love having a day to make it all about her! At different stages in our story of life one or more of us hasn’t always been nearby to celebrate with her, but we always pause for a moment on that day to contact her so she knows we are thinking of her. As I’ve grown older I’ve enjoyed learning about the person she was before she became a Mother. Being a Mother to 4 children is only a small part of who she is as a person, and this Mother’s Day I wanted to create something that reflects the story of her life through my eyes in a memorable way!
