    Ok y’all being a mom and being OBSESSED with makeup can be a struggle. I absolutely LOVE my high quality, expensive pieces of makeup but sometimes I just don’t have to money to go and spend $20 on each a foundation and a lipstick. I barely have $20 to spend on makeup anyways but that’s beside the point. So let’s talk drugstore makeup!

    I absolutely hate buying makeup from Target or Walmart because let’s face it swatching is non-existent at those places. I like to swatch my makeup, make sure the color blends well or even goes with my skin tone. Even though you can’t swatch you can still return the makeup if it isn’t the right fit, but if you still don’t want to deal with the hassle of returning it you can always find the closest Ulta and make sure someone has you on a tight leash to keep you away from the expensive treasures you may see in there.

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi New Characters Revealed

    As a fandom loving family Joe and I are so excited for the new Star Wars movie to come out. Our relationship has been built on our love for all things Star Wars and of course we own all the movies and games. We are counting down the days to the release of The Last Jedi so that we can get a babysitter and go to the midnight release..well the first showing because theaters where we live don’t really show movies at midnight anymore. I have no clue why they stopped but we miss waiting in line at 11 P.M. with caffeine pumping through our veins so we could be one of the first to see the movie.

Disney and Lucasfilm have just announced a fun interactive way to learn about some secrets from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Continue Reading…

    Love. Love is such a strong feeling but if you don’t exercise love it will begin to weaken. If you don’t set time aside for the ones you love then your relationship will begin to falter. Date nights are so important when you are married with kids. I cannot stress that enough. If you don’t continue dating your husband or wife as your marriage progresses things will get real rough real fast. Sometimes it feels like there isn’t enough time in the world to plan a date, feed the kids, work, and actually have time alone with your significant other to do the date. Continue Reading…

  • What Defines The Modern Mom

    I am a young mom, a modern mom with an alternative style. I’ve always been a bit out there with my looks and haven’t really been one to conform to societies norm when it comes to my style. That being said, if looks could kill I’d be one dead mom. . To be honest, I probably wouldn’t have made it out my pregnancy alive. Crazy hair, tattoos, piercings, and stretched ears… that is what you would see if you looked at me. We live in a world full of people who define your capability of being a mother on what you look like. If you don’t look like the cookie cutter mom with the mini van and the stereotypical blonde mom bob then people see you as a danger. Continue Reading…
