The Gift of Goddess Skin


Charlotte Tilbury skin care

One of the things I have wanted to try for awhile now is Charlotte Tilbury skin care. I love so many items from her cosmetic line, and am well aware of the rave reviews that accompany so many of her skin care products - but where to start? I wasn't sure which item I wanted to try first. The Magic Cream? Wonder Glow? There are so many options.

Now this brand does come with some steep prices, but they have always been well worth my hard earned dollars - in my opinion - since the quality and performance of the products is stellar. However, I was so happy to find that Charlotte offers different skin care kits - where you can get travel sized versions of her popular products!

Party Planning


Baby's 1st Birthday

I can't believe it, but my little bird will be turning a year old in less than four short months. You mamas weren't joking when you said that time flies with your kids. It seems like just yesterday that I was bringing her home from the hospital and she was just a 7 lb little newborn. 

It is bittersweet - because my heart hurts thinking that they grow up so fast and that she isn't a tiny baby anymore... but I also have so much joy in seeing her develop and learn, and I am so excited for each new stage that comes.

Thirty

I turned 30 years old today. 

It kind of crept up on me... and I didn't think it would feel much different, but it does a bit. It's a little weird feeling to be out of my twenties. But, I think the best years are to come and this next decade is going to be a great one. I've had so many people say they really enjoyed this season of their lives, so I am really looking forward to it!

Best of Beauty 2017 - Part 1


Best of 2017 (1)


Happy New Year, friends! 

I took a break from blogging over the holidays to take a bit of a step back and spend lots of time with family. It was such a wonderful week and great way to end the year. And spending Christmas with my little bird made it that much more special! I'll share some pictures soon.

As I look back at 2017, I wanted to share what my top cosmetic items were in each major category. I've tried lots of products out this year, and these are the best-of-the-best, in my opinion. I've broken the post up into two parts, since there is so much to cover! Let's dive right in...
