I thought I loved Amazon and then I had a baby and realized I couldn’t live without it. The first few weeks at home with a newborn you don’t want to leave your house. There’s never been anything more convenient than using the Amazon app and ordering whatever it was we needed at that moment… a pumping bra, diapers, sleep sacks, nail clippers, white noise machine – just to name a few. The best part was they’d show up to our house the very next day because we have Amazon Prime. I honestly don’t know what new parents did before this. continue reading
If there’s one makeup product I can’t live without, it’s mascara. I’m a bit of an addict and usually have about six different ones floating around my makeup drawer. I have a few favorites but am always up to try out a new one. Until recently my all-time favorite was this one from Benefit. I love it and always end up going back to it, but I decided to mix it up and try a few to review.
Too Faced Better than Sex. Everything about this mascara is perfect. Love the brush, love the way it goes on without clumping and seems to stay put all day. This is huge. I usually do my makeup around 5:15 am so I depend on a product to get me through the day.
A few months back I was looking at old pictures and noticed how long and full my eyelashes looked. I started thinking maybe over the years they’d broken off or thinned out. It got me thinking about the beauty products I used to use. The ones I grew faithful to in high school and college but drifted as the years went on. I remembered my old favorite mascara was L’Oreal Voluminous, so I picked up a tube to try again. It brought my eyelashes right back to their youthful state and I am once again hooked. The icing on the cake was when I noticed a makeup artist at work using it on celebrity guests on the show.
