A few January favorites…

january favorites

First, I want to start by saying THANK YOU!

Your support for the blog launch this week has been amazing!

Now, with it officially being winter in Ohio {lots of snow today!}, I thought I’d start the week with a few of my favorite items to help get your beauty routine through the rest of winter.

Let’s talk about these cold mornings and trying to get ready for the day…I find myself hitting the snooze button one or two {or four} more times than usual. {Especially if Karter is still sleeping!} Once I’m up, I could literally stand in a hot shower all day. With all of that being said, my getting-ready routine usually gets cut pretty short due to the amount of time it takes me to just get moving! I’ve found quite a few products that I’ve been loving lately {future posts!} but these are 3 I have been using for awhile.  They help make my morning routine quick & easy and to be honest, I just can’t get enough of them…

Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm (BB) SPF 45IMG_1256

This BB cream is ahhhh-mazing! It brightens & conceals. Contains sunscreen & antioxidants. AND it’s an anti-aging serum. {Is this for real?!} It’s a little on the expensive side ($39…don’t tell my husband) but worth it and lasts for weeks/months! Karter is 9 months old and STILL gets up at night so thank goodness for this cream…it makes me look like I really am awake! Also, I don’t know about you, but in the dead of winter when your skin is feeling blah & pale, anything that can brighten, tighten, and lighten those under-eye circles is obviously a winner. {My skin, overall, needs some serious help so if anyone wants to share their favorites with me, please do!}


Benefit Cosmetics – They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara

People that know me and know me well, can testify that I NEED mascara in my daily routine. I honestly don’t go a day without it! There’s something about throwing on a little mascara that can just make you feel put-together. {Even if your shirt has baby spit up down the front & showering was so yesterday!} This mascara is super long-wearing but still leaves your lashes soft and smudge free! It’s one of those “why did I wait so long to buy this?” products that I can’t see ever getting rid of.

Johnson’s Baby Soothing Vapor Bath


Ok…stop laughing.  I’m seriously in love with this! {And yes, Karter uses it almost daily, too!} When I first got home from the hospital after having my sweet boy, my sister brought me shower tablets. I would put them on the floor of my shower and turn the water on HOT. It was like a spa-experience in my own bathroom with the smell that was released from those little nuggets! {Kyle even had to try one & loved it! Sorry hunnie…had to share!} After our first time using Johnson’s Baby Soothing Vapor Bath with Karter, our “genius” idea struck. Why not squirt a little bit of this on the shower floor during our showers?! Well… it works. It works just like those tablets did! It’s the most feel-good smell that will immediately relax you. Use it during that 5 minute shower when you’re getting ready in the morning, 20 minute shower before bed on a Sunday night, or even in your own bath! You will love how it makes you feel…calm & relaxed.

Listen, if nothing else it’s cheaper than therapy & less calories than wine…
