    Drugstore Magnetic Lashes – Do They Live Up to the Hype?

     Hi friends!

    Hope you are doing well! Today I wanted to share my complete review on drugstore magnetic lashes. Since quarantine I haven’t been able to get my lash extensions, and after a request from a friend, I thought I would try out magnetic lashes. I purchased both the Ardell and Eyelure magnetic lash kit and have been wearing them these past month. Below I am sharing my honest review plus sharing a video on how to apply and remove magnetic lashes. Check out more on my thoughts in this YouTube video  and if they are they are hyped up to be.

    Hi friends,

    Hope you had a great Mother’s Day weekend! This weekend we were so thankful to have a beautiful day to celebrate with our family. We decided to host a Mother’s Day brunch in our home because plenty of places were still not open. We recently did our back patio so it was perfect for hosting an outdoor brunch with our family. Josh cooked the sandwich fillings and pasta. I made a fruit and cheese tray and ordered the cookies and put everything together. Below is more details of our Mother’s Day brunch.

    My Quarantine Birthday – Turning 32

    FEATURED IN THIS POST:

    Hi friends!

    Hope you are doing well! This past week I celebrated my quarantine birthday and turned thirty two. It wasn’t the birthday I planned but definitely a blessing in disguised. We had big plans for my birthday, a family trip and a couples trip plan this month that we had to cancel due to the Coronavirus. Since I’ve started this blog I’ve always written a post to reflect the past year and to share my thoughts of turning a year older. Last year I shared what I learned in my thirties and what I look forward to being thirty one. So this year I thought I would continue the tradition and share my thoughts in the past year and what I look forward to being thirty two.

    Athleisure Outfit Ideas For Summer

    FEATURED ON THIS POST:

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are doing well! Today I am sharing my favorite athleisure outfits I’ve been wearing during quarantine. These outfits are perfect for summer with their fun, bright, and vibrant colors. When people ask me what is athleisure, I always explain it as outfits that look like you are working out but comfy enough to just lounge around in. I wouldn’t run five miles in these outfits but I could definitely do a fun quick 30 minute workout and yet still look cute to go through a drive thru or run errands. It’s dressing up for staying home home because some days you just want to get out of your pj’s. Not that it’s a bad thing to be in your pj’s all day, because trust me I’ve had those days during quarantine! But if you are looking for another alternative check out my athleisure outfit ideas for summer below!

    CHINA HUTCH Makeover DIY

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are doing well! Today I am sharing a fun home project we did during quarantine, our china hutch makeover DIY. My dad pasted down to me his grandma’s old china hutch for my dining room. I’ve always loved the quality of antiques and older furniture especially when they have family history. This beautiful hutch has been in the family for over three generations and was still in great condition. I had been on a hunt for a year now for a china hutch that also doubled as a buffet/server for my dining room. When my dad showed me this beautiful piece that had been stowed in the garage for years now, I knew this was the one. It was a little outdated and didn’t fit my overall interior decor, so I decided to give it a little makeover. Check out our china hutch makeover DIY below!
