The first week of August is upon us and I can hardly believe Asher will be going back to school in a couple weeks. This week I shared a new popsicle recipe on the blog, my top 6 beauty products for any busy woman and Kezia’s birth announcements from MintedMake sure you check them out below and find the code as they are doing a special for all my readers through 8/11!

A bunch of you messaged me asking if I would repeat my method for making berries last longer that I posted in my Stories last week. I did a lunch box prepping FB Live last year that is on my YouTube channel so you can see it here! It’s just before the 8 min mark.
After they’re soaked and rinsed really well, I layer them with paper towels between the layers and just prop the lid open a little before refrigerating. They’ll last about 10 days this way!

I guess when you have 3, your odds of everyone looking at the camera and smiling are much lower. 😂

Someone messaged me last week and asked what my top 5 makeup products would be for a super quick morning routine for a busy and tired mom who wants to look a little more awake and put together. Here’s my favorites, except I threw in my favorite lipstick as #6 because I think it completes a quick look!
touchup concealer pen – for tired dark under eye circles, and those random blemishes that magically appear with motherhood.
dew skin tinted moisturizer – for a subtle glow and balanced skin tone to make a tired, un showered mom look bright and alive, plus sun protection.
black lengthening mascara – paired with an eyelash curler to make half awake narrow eyes bigger and awake looking.
black eye pencil – to make tired eyes more pronounced.
pearl/champagne eye shadow duo – for a little shimmer to make eyes look bright and awake.
twig sheer lipstick – to complete the look and fake it like you have it all together!

My throw-back-thursday from the week.

Sister, sister. 💜
We looked forward to our Easter outfits every year. We weren’t forced to wear those. I’m pretty sure we actually picked them out. Gloves and all. 😂


I love the way Kezia’s birth announcements from Minted turned out! I did them for Asher and forgot with Easton, so I’m feeling pretty accomplished! 😂
