It is essential to clean your makeup brushes. Otherwise they just get plain nasty, let’s be honest here. I found that using my foundation brush and powder brush everyday, it is best to clean them about every week (if I remember). It is quick to do and essential to applying flawless makeup.I have tried a few different types of cleaners…

DIY Decorative Matchbook

I love candles! The second I walk through the door after a long day in the office I light one. Right now I’m obsessed with a soy candle named Bali Sunrise. It smells like a fun drink on the beach! Yummm! One of my roommates in college hated having matchboxes out on the counter, so she decided to collage the…

Relaxing in the Redwoods

This week was crazy for both my husband and I. Although it was only a four day work week, we both worked late everyday and just felt a little overwhelmed. Our camping trip could not have come at a better time. We drove up after work on Friday to Portola Redwoods State Park. It was only for one night but…

Designer Spotlight: Kate Spade

I basically love everything on the Kate Spade website! Her designs are so fun, fresh, and chic! Unfortunately, I can’t afford anything from her site. (Lets just say that law school grads waiting for their bar results aren’t exactly rollin’ in it!) But I still love to look, because her clothes, shoes, jewelry, and bags are gorgeous! Enjoy my favorite…

Mama’s Chai

Perfection

“Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5:48 I’m a tad bit of a perfectionist. Okay, Okay! I’m a total perfectionist. I always tried my best to get perfect grades, have a perfect life, perfect career, stellar group of friends, perfect husband… you catch my drift?  But God doesn‘t call us to be perfect in the eyes…

Julep Beauty Box Subscription

I love getting packages in the mail! It’s excitement, surprise, and fun, all wrapped up in a bubble mailer! Sometimes my Oma sends Hubby and me a package filled with banana bread and cookies, and every time we see the box by our front door, we’re like little kids on Christmas morning! I’ve been hearing a lot about the various…

It’s Fall Baby

I absolutely love the Fall season! It’s football season, the leaves change, the weather gets slightly cooler and….it’s time to bust out the boots! If I could, I would honestly wear boots everyday! Not only are they super cute, but they’re comfy and can either be dressed up or down. Here are some of my favorites that are out in…

Summer Veggie Pizza

There are few meals I actually feel comfortable cooking for other people…  But give me some pizza dough and some fresh veggies, and I’ve got enough confidence to feed someone my culinary creations. This pizza is perfect for summertime because the veggies it calls for are fresh and in season (ie: inexpensive). Hit up your favorite grocery store or even better,…
