What I use to survive Parenthood? Lash Genius….

Photo from the New York Daily News

The other day, I text my friend said, “Straight up ugly cry, massive headache, pretty sure, I need therapy.”  She texted back and said, “Oh you caught up on Parenthood?”  Yes.  Thankfully, while I was contemplating whether we would find out why Joel has been such an @$$!0%^ this season, I threw on some Lash Genius prior to hitting play on the DVR.  I did have to take a couple of motrin after three episodes but I didn’t have mascara {Read More}

We really love your peaches want to shake your tree. MUFE Blush


I’m not sure if there is a Beauty Zodiac Calendar but if there is…..this is the Year of the Blush!  Olive and I wanted to try these new Make Up For Ever HD Blushes and we want them all.  I fell in love with the pump version a few years ago.  With 16 shades, we both settled on trying a peachy color for spring.  I chose 225 which is a peachy pink shade.  Olive decided on 315 which is a {Read More}

Rodan + Fields Micro-dermabrasion Paste

Rodan + Fields Micro-Dermabrasion Paste

First, let me start by saying that I am NOT a rep for Rodan + Fields, nor do I get any commissions or free products from them.  The reason I want to state that up front is because R+F is a multi-level marketing skin care company that was created by two dermatologists and they do a lot of recruiting for Independent Consultants.  I see a lot of posts on Facebook from people who have bought into the company and have {Read More}

Mother’s Day Present?

Vitamix S Series

I love beauty but a close second may be blending things.  People.  Stop the presses.  Vitamix has a new blender and it’s like the blender equivalent to a clutch!  Seriously, you can take this with you.  Friends in baseball, this might be for you!  I love my big vitamix but I hate that it doesn’t fit under my cabinets.  Plus, let’s be honest, it’s a little bit of an eyesore.  But the NEW S-series…..bestill my healthy heart.  You get a {Read More}

Essie Hide & Go Chic Collection

hide & go chic collection

Happy Saturday, spring chickens! Last week I posted a couple of colors from the new Essie spring 2014 collection called Hide & Go Chic, and today I have one more.  Spin the Bottle is a semi-sheer nude, neither too pink nor too brown.  Semi-sheer is a great formula because it allows you to choose your coverage based on how many coats you apply, and it’s not streaky like an opaque cream.  I love nudies and this color is no exception. {Read More}

Follow Up to Denim Therapy

Crotch Tear

Remember when I was spring cleaning and sent Mr. Ivory’s jeans off to repair?  Well, I got his two pairs of jeans back from Denim Therapy.  It took around 3 weeks, and I have to say they look really good.  You wouldn’t be able to tell that they were repaired by looking at them.  The weave of the denim is thicker than the original weave so I’m not sure what a repair would look (or feel) like on the knee. {Read More}

Acrylic Makeup Storage


At what point do you need to consider buying something to store your makeup in? When the top drawer of your bathroom vanity, you know the one that is supposed to hold your toothpaste and deodorant, becomes too much to sort through? Or those gift with purchase pouches that you get at department store makeup counters begin to take over your counter? Let’s face it, those zippered freebies aren’t the prettiest, or most efficient options for keeping your treasured makeup {Read More}

Advice for life, laundry and baseball

Marine Layer Tee Tag

It’s a complicated math problem.  Cost + Wears +intangibles like softness and durability = Maximizing Asset Value.  This is my Rubik’s Cube.  Finding the perfect white tee.  Right now, I’m loving Marine Layer’s white v-neck tee.  It is soft like butter, long enough but not too long and slim enough without feeling like Spanx.  Plus, who doesn’t love a tee that admits it’s a little high maintenance on the tag while giving you advice for life, laundry and baseball.  Lay {Read More}
