I’m super lazy. I love a good hack. And I love products. That’s all there is to it. While I’m not the most high maintenance person I know, I’m totally interested in beauty and the magic of great products. There are a few things I’ve used or learned over the years that I thought you might not know about. Here 5 quick beauty hacks that every gal should know. I’m a helper, what can I say!
I’m not saying you shouldn’t spend time with your family on Mother’s Day. I’m just saying that maybe part of your gift could be these 5 things plus an hour or so to enjoy them without having to run all over town or handle your usual mom duties. It’s pretty much the perfect Mother’s Day celebration if you ask me! Just send this post to your husband…
My boys are about 2 1/2 years apart in age. At times they get along famously. And others they act like, well, brothers. But there are two things they can agree on. They LOVE soda (which they don’t get often). And Netflix (which they watch all the time). Recently they’ve become interested in my world of cocktails. With all the special tools and specialty ingredients, they are always asking questions about drinks and wanting to use the strainer or jigger. I decided to create a non alcoholic sangria that is totally kid friendly as a special treat. And while there isn’t much soda in this recipe, it’s still enough to make the kids feel like it’s a special occasion.

Spring is the perfect time to refresh everything! The drab winter months are over and the spring cleaning can commence. But I don’t just clean my house. I like to use spring as a time to refresh my beauty routine and do some spring cleaning of my skin and mind also. I decided to create a beauty gift basket for my mom’s Mother’s Day gift this year. Sometimes we don’t take the time for ourselves unless someone else encourages us to do so. By creating this fun gift idea for her, I know that she’ll be able to enjoy taking a little extra time to pamper herself instead of feeling guilty for doing so. Plus I’m sharing a fun new way to put together a gift basket. Spoiler alert: you don’t need a basket!

Spring has sprung and the weather has started to warm up. And we get to celebrate our favorite mothers on Mother’s Day. There are many wonderful mother figures in my life and I am so grateful for the time I get to spend with them. But this year, one mom in particular is blowing my mind (and, quite frankly, making me feel a little inadequate). This Mother’s Day, my sister-in-law will be celebrating her first as a mom of 4 kids. Her family recently fostered two toddler boys and it instantly doubled her family. She has handled this (and ALL the stress that comes with it) with such grace and love. She is truly a role model and deserves a little extra praise. But I also want to encourage her to find time for herself. Read through for a delicious adult-friendly Buttered Cheerios™ recipe with Truffle Oil that she can easily make during their regular snack time!

But just because we have a lot of sun doesn’t mean that we keep our outdoor areas kept up year round. Last weekend, on a gorgeous sunny Sunday afternoon, I wanted to be outside with a glass of wine and a magazine. But I realized quickly that my backyard was in no shape to be hosting visitors. With BBQ season fast approaching, I decided to put together a Spring Entertaining Checklist which will help you get your home in order so you can invite people over whenever you want to. Spring parties don’t have to be over the top or stressful. Here is what you need to make sure you are the hostess with the mostess.
