Well, it’s cold out. Like, really cold..and windy….and bedtime feels like 6 o’clock because the sun abandoned us at five. What I’m trying to say is I’m already dreading winter. On the bright side…a new season and new weather means a change in my beauty routine. Which means…an excuse to shop! 😉 So, if you’re wondering what to buy to make the transition into winter just a bit easier on your skin and look then you’re going to love this… Read more »

The most common comment I get on my smokey eye makeup is…”I try and do something like that and I just look silly!” I bet you don’t! We all spend so much time looking at ourselves in the mirror that sometimes when we try something a bit different than our usual look we think we look ridiculous…when someone else thinks you look great! There are so many tutorials and tips on achieving the perfect smoky eye look! But…if you keep… Read more »

For those of you who hadn’t heard…2014 hasn’t been my easiest year. Like, at all. Unfortunately, this blog suffered because of it. I spent a lot of time writing for myself…instead of everyone else…and I just never found much inspiration to post here. I’ve missed it immensely. I’ve missed the chance to interact with my readers and my followers. I’ve missed reading your comments and your emails and your advice. This space makes me happy. So I want to come… Read more »

I’ve spent my entire life doing exactly what I am supposed to. Always what was expected of me. My life was perfectly molded around the people I loved. My days began and ended with this thought: “what can I do today to make everyone around me as happy as possible?” I’m hoping that most of you can see how unhealthy that sort of behavior is…I hope you can identify what was missing. I never once asked myself: “what can I do… Read more »

As summer slowly slips from our grasps we are getting ready to say goodbye (for now) to one of America’s most beloved traditions: Baseball. I grew up smack dab in the middle of America…which meant that I had several MLB teams within driving distant to cheer on all summer. Unfortunately, I never truly embraced the tradition of baseball…so, I found my fandom dependent on whoever I was dating at the time. For some reason, the one team that seemed to… Read more »

I’m coming out of blog hibernation to let my readers know something really exciting! One of my favorite beauty stores is opening a new store in Papillion, NE! The Beauty Brands shopping experience is like none other! It’s aisles are filled with over 10,000 salon quality hair, nail and bath & body products as well as a huge selection of prestigious makeup products. To top it all off the store features a full service salon! The store, located at 8920 S. 71st Plaza,… Read more »

After almost six years together…I still get outrageously excited for “date night”. Maybe it is because Andrew and I spend most nights apart (due to work schedules) or maybe it is because we have so much freaking fun together…all I know, is…I can’t get enough of that guy! I think some of the fun of having a date night is the anticipation and the ritual of getting all dolled up! I make it my mission…after this many years together…to try… Read more »

Oh, heyyy Happy Monday! This week is beginning with a recent transition in my career path which is resulting in me working from home for most of each week. My life has been all about change as of late…lots of personal, physical & spiritual changes being made! What is it about change (no matter how good it might be) that makes me so uneasy?? This new work environment is unfamiliar, and therefore, I have done an immense amount of research… Read more »

I just couldn’t let Friday pass without stopping by to say hi! And to share a few of my favorite internet finds from the week! Behold….a bunch of guys attempt to do their girlfriends’ makeup. I giggled. A lot. Reminds me of the many times I have asked Andrew to comb my hair (because who doesn’t love that??) and he holds the brush like a toddler trying to understand how to use a fork for the first time. This Raspberry-Mango… Read more »

I’m Cassie from cassie cares, and I’m honored to be a part of Hayley’s Top Ten Tuesday feature. In writing this I wanted to give her readers something that I think all of us are trying to achieve: the opportunity to learn from one another. Lifestyle blogging is all about mastering a skill (gracefully or otherwise) and then sharing our inspiration and process with all of you. I thought about listing my favorite DIY projects or beauty products, but I… Read more »
