I’ve sort of gotten into a mindset where Mondays, my mind resets, which has been a really good thing. Things move so fast these days and we’re always going, going, going……

My 10 Favorite Purchases of 2017

I know it’s a little late for this post, I meant to go live with it on Friday, but since we drove up to Savannah to move Kaitlyn into her dorm at SCAD, things got a little crazy and I didn’t get it scheduled like I wanted to! In any case, I thought it would still be valuable to share, even a week late 😉 Looking back at all the purchases I made in 2017, there are definitely a few…

December 2017 Instagram Recap

I think I still can’t believe it’s January 2018. December felt like it flew by in a blur, as all holidays do. The holidays are my favorite time of year and I’m so sad they’re over! Full disclosure, our tree is still up and will probably stay up for at least another week. Enjoying it while we can. Besides, we’re Cuban, 3 Kings Day hasn’t even passed yet! 😉 I think my December Instagram feed has been my all time…

Gift Guide: Beauty Gift Ideas

Gift Guide: beauty gift ideas for holiday

I love gifting beauty for the holidays! Holiday beauty gift sets are some of my all-time favorite things! Brands pull out all the stops with super cute packaging, smaller versions of pricey products, and bundled gift sets any beauty gal would love. It’s the perfect time to test out a product you’ve had your eye on, splurge on something decadent, or just restock on something you already know you love. I’ve gone through and rounded up some of my favorite…
