Happy Mother's Day

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ― Abraham Lincoln

Before I had my first son, Jackson, I was terrified. I had never even held a baby, let alone feed or change a diaper. But after I had him, it was like a switch had flipped in my brain and everything just came naturally. By the time my husband and I had our second son, Jameson, we felt as if we were experts in child raising. Having children and caring for them has been such a bonding and learning experience for my husband and I. I am so very thankful for all the help I had from my wonderful husband, he is such an amazing father. Being a mother has changed my life forever, and for the best.

Being a mother is the hardest but also the most rewarding job ever. From the time I get up, until I go to bed I am constantly on the go. My sons are 19 months apart so you can imagine what kind of chaos my home stays in. But no matter how frustrated I get with the boys at the end of the day I always find myself smiling at their beautiful, sweet sleeping faces.

Being a mother has also given me a greater appreciation for my own mother. She somehow managed to raise me alone, without any help at all from my father. I have the utmost respect for all single mothers in the world, I really don't know how they do it. But through all the ups and downs of my childhood my mother managed to raise me alone, and shaped me into the a semi-normal, well rounded adult. My mother has always been and always will be my best friend. 

My mother and I now.

This year on Mother's Day show your mother how much you love and appreciate them.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's, grandmother's, step-mom's, and mother's to be! I hope you all have a wonderful day, you deserve it!


  1. Thank you, that is so sweet baby girl. You are such a wonderful mother to the boys and such a blessing to me. I love you now and forever my daughter and my best friend!

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.

The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:

Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
