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!

Book Review: Organizing for your Lifestyle By Jane Stoller

May 6, 2017: I love self-help books. I’m convinced there’s mountains of valuable information in all the self-help books in the world that I would greatly benefit from if only I had the time to read them. Is a lack of free time to read beneficial material the ultimate mark of a poorly schedule life? A disorganized life? If only there were time to read a self-help book that could cure me of my chronic inability to find time to be organized…

May 7, 2017: I opened up my email and read a letter from Kelsey of Jane Stoller’s PR team. Kelsey asked If I’d like to review Jane’s new book, “Organizing for your Lifestyle.” My first thought was, “I don’t have time for a book review! I can’t even read the books I find myself!” But the title intrigued me and I accepted.

A few days later the book arrived in the mail and I immediately began reading so I could get a review up in a timely manner. I had no idea this was THE self-help book I’d been looking for.

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!
