In case you missed it, I shared a bit about how I get ready everyday on my insta-story on Sunday. Since then, I’ve been getting a ton of questions about the products I used so I figured I’d break down my everyday makeup essentials! These are products I use for my “everyday” makeup look. If I’m going for a more glam look, I’ll still use most of the same products but build on them a little more. I do want to mention though that I definitely do not get ready every day haha! This is my makeup routine for days that I need to be presentable 😉

When I was pregnant, like many other expecting first-time moms, I received a ton of unsolicited advice. I was constantly fed advice on what to do during pregnancy, childbirth and as a parent–some of it useful and some not so much. But there is one thing that NOBODY told me to prepare for…postpartum hair-loss and thinning. Seriously, how did no one give me a heads up about this? I remember showering a few weeks after Mason was born and I noticed a crazy amount of hair falling out and I was so freaked out! I actually brought it up to my doctor thinking there was something seriously wrong with me and she sort of laughed it off because it was so common. Apparently, it’s totally normal to lose an absurd amount of hair and or your hair to become noticeably thinner postpartum but nobody tells you about it until after it happens.
My weeks can be pretty crazy. Between running errands, doing housework and chasing Mason around I’m exhausted by the weekend! I’m always both mentally and physically drained and in serious need of some me time. Thankfully, I have a hubby who lets me take time out of the weekend to pamper myself. While I would love to hit the spa every weekend that’s unfortunately not possible for me. So, I figured that if I can’t go to the spa I’ll bring the spa to me! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite products to share with you my routine for an at home spa day.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret here… I am a crazy person when it comes to teeth! A smile is the first thing I notice about someone’s appearance so I’m pretty obsessive when it comes to my own. Growing up, my teeth were HORRID. Like, adult teeth way too big for my mouth coming in in every which way. They were bad. Actually, bad is an understatement but you get the picture! Thankfully, my mom recognized this and made sure I had braces. I was definitely self-conscious about my smile but two phases of braces later and I love smiling. Smiling’s my favorite! (name that move 😉 ). But it’s no secret that I love my coffee and my wine so keeping my smile white is a struggle.
