Easy Nighttime Skincare Routine


My nighttime skincare routine is probably my favorite part of the night. Once the kids are down I take some time to focus on myself before going to bed. The products I use can vary depending on the time of year and how my skin is acting, I swear it has a mind of its own! I have combination skin and for the most part, it’s fine but I do get the occasional breakout. When it comes to skincare or anything really, I’m all about affordability. I’m not gonna spend tons of money on a product unless it’s truly worth it. I’m also not gonna slap 90 products on my face just because. I don’t have the time or patience for so many steps every night, more importantly none of that is necessary. Do you really need a skincare routine? In my 20s I didn’t really have a skincare routine


My birth story: The day before… My birth story starts the day before I gave birth to my son. It was like most other days in the last week or so of my pregnancy.

Fun Things To Do With Kids At Home


Fun Things To Do With Kids At Home With everything that’s happening in the world right now, most of us are pretty much homebound these days. Those of us with kids are hearing things like “I’m bored!”, “There’s nothing to do!” and the famous whiny “Moooooooom!” more than we’d like to admit. You know what I’m talking about! Lately, I’ve been on a hunt for new indoor activities kids can do at home. There’s not much for them to do outside because park/ playgrounds are off-limits and social distancing preventing them to play with friends. One thing you don’t want is to have your kids sitting like zombies in front of the electronic babysitter for hours, or playing video games till their gray matter starts to have the consistency of Swiss Cheese.

4 Helpful Tips For Raising Tween Girls


4 Helpful Tips For Raising Tween Girls Raising kids is like being in school, you’re always learning about the stage your child is in. But it seems like as soon as you master “the program” you start the next level of learning. Or at least that’s how I feel at times. Now that I’ve entered the tween stage with my daughter it’s like I’m taking mental notes every day now. I’m constantly thinking back to when I was 11, how I felt about certain things and how I would’ve preferred my mom to respond. This is a delicate stage when girls around this age find their personality and want to be more independent, but at the same time, they still want approval for their choices. This is what works for me (at the moment). Related: Help Your Daughter Love Her Body 1. Build A Strong Relationship With Your Daughter This
