As mothers we learn from our mistakes, right? I am a repeat offender of waiting too long to get my kids’ Halloween costumes and having to pull something together at the last minute. It’s super stressful. I know it sounds crazy, but if you have not hit the “checkout” button by Oct 1, in most cases you are screwed. This is not my first Halloween rodeo. With almost a dozen Halloweens under my belt, I am finally learning my lesson. Costumes are purchased and on their way! I suggest you do the same before all of the good ones are gone. 😉 Here are a few of my faves.
Now that I am quickly approaching what they call Middle-Aged, I am seeing quite a few changes in my skin amongst many other things. I have come to the conclusion that a lot of the make-up that I wore in my twenties, and probably a little too far into my 30’s were making me look older- sinking into fine lines and creating a harsher look than I would like. That being said, I have switched up my makeup routine. I really love this foundation. I put it on with this brush and you can use as much or as little as you want- it blends perfectly.
The key flawless makeup is blending. I love this sponge and these brushes. While they seem pricey, they are worth it. I’ve had some makeup brushes for 16+ years and they are still going strong. Lastly, I have been using this eye cream and have seen a significant improvement in my bags. Love it!
As most of you know, I am a working mom. I use my left brain 95% of the day, and I started this blog in 2010 as my release- my time to be creative. It was also a way for me to help women who were just like me to create their best life. It’s blossomed into so much more, and for that- for all of you, I am so grateful.
Until now, I’ve never really shared that other side of my life on this blog. Last week I had an Oprah “a-ha” moment realizing that most of the women reading this blog are working moms, or stay at home moms, but MOMS who might actually be interested in that side of my life- because, quite frankly we are ALL moms trying to get through this life the best possible way we can. And the reality is as women and as mothers, we should all be supporting each other and if I can help any mom or woman out there build a better life for herself, well that was the very premise that this blog was built on.
The reality is that my day job can be pretty cool. I am a sales leader for one of the largest companies in the world. I have a fantastic team of people that I work with every day who make this job fun. This year I was asked to be part of a Committee of Women Leaders within Apple to spearhead corporate efforts for further diversity and inclusion. I am so proud to work for a company that not only says they care, but is willing to put forth the effort to make change. And it looks like we are moving the needle.
