I decided to start a little blog series where I talk about the things I’m loving lately, whether it be beauty products, clothes, baby products, food products, etc. I just think it’s a fun way to keep track of all the things I love and also share them with all of you.

This is going to be my first one and it’s going to focus on all the beauty products I am currently loving. I’ve found a lot of products recently that are just amazing and then ones I’ve loved for years so I figured I would go ahead and combine those here. I am by no means a beauty expert, I get most of my tips and tricks from my friend Liza. Go check her out on Instagram here or her YouTube channel here. Again, not a beauty expert, just a mama that likes a simple beauty routine.

1. It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

-I have been on the hunt for my ‘go-to’ mascara for years now and I’ve just never found quite the right one. One will make my lashes look longer but won’t volumize while another will volumize but give them no length. This mascara by It Cosmetics is literally the best of both worlds. I am seriously so obsessed with it and it’s actually pretty affordable at just a little over $25 for a large tube. No need to purchase anything to help grow your lashes, this is seriously the best mascara I’ve ever used. I got it in Black.

2. BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

-So I am not a liquid foundation kinda gal. I usually only wear powder because in the past my face as been so sensitive. And when I say that I mean using a liquid foundation would make me break out by the end of the night. Last summer I purchased this tinted moisturizer just because with a newborn I didn’t want to have to mess with powder every day and I’ve really just been in love with it ever since. It doesn’t make me break out and gives me a nice glow or creates a good base if I’m putting powder on over top. Plus it’s SPF 30 which is super important. No wrinkles, ladies! I get mine in the color Vanilla 02.

3. BareMinerals Barepro Performance Wear Powder Foundation

-Sticking with BareMinerals, this is the powder foundation I use every day. It just has great coverage, doesn’t make me break out and isn’t insanely expensive. I get mine in the color Light Natural.

4. Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Soft and Sexy Eye Shadow Collection

-This is currently my favorite eyeshadow palette. I’ve been using it for a few months now and I’m just in love. The colors are so beautiful and have a good mix of both matte and shimmery colors. The colors are also a great mix of cool and warmer tones and I think they are just so beautiful and flattering. I seriously use this every.single.day. It might be a little pricey for some but I’ve had it for so long and all the colors are still full so I think it’s worth the money.

5. CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

-Like I said earlier, I have very sensitive skin and my dermatologist recommended using this cleanser every morning and night. For a while I wasn’t consistent and therefore never saw any consistency with my face. Since using it every day, my skin has gotten softer, my breakouts have gone down significantly and my skin isn’t as sensitive to other products I put on it. It’s also free of parabens and sulfates. It’s effective and completely affordable seeing as you can get it at any drugstore.

6. CeraVe Moisturizers

-Per the dermatologist recommendation, I am also using the CeraVe moisturizers. I bought both the AM Lotion and the PM lotion. The AM has SPF and they are both just so moisturizing whether being oily or irritating. Again, totally affordable but effective.

At this point, I’m not super in love with any hair care products but that’s probably because I’m still combating the postpartum hair issues. My hair is so different now and just in a weird place where I think we are getting reintroduced to each other so maybe my next edition will include some products that I’ve found that just knock my socks off.

Anybody else have any products they are loving lately? Loving any of the products I listed here?

  • Saturday Bumpday! 🤰🏼 17 weeks today! I posted on my blog yesterday all about finding out we were pregnant, a little about my NIPT with @maternit21plus , and our gender reveal video and more pictures!! The link is in my bio 💙
  • This little handsome guy turned T W O ✌🏼 yesterday and we get to celebrate him this weekend! It’s safe to say he’s really got the whole stud number down in his 2 short years. I feel so grateful to have friends with kids the same age and I love getting to watch them grow together! Happy Birthday sweet Camden! 🎉💙 #ittakesavillage
  • S I X T E E N  W E E K S today! Time seems to be flying by with this little boy! 💙 Cary and I each have two boy names we love, sadly they aren’t the same ones. We agreed on our little gal, Teagan, so quickly so please HELP and comment below and leave your suggestions on baby boy names! 💙
  • They haven’t yet mastered how to show each other affection! Teagan’s like “don’t touch me, boy!” And Cam’s like “get off my fire truck 🚒 “ I swear watching these two grow up together has been one of the highlights for me 😍
  • I’m afraid to say it but I feel like I might be turning a page slowly with this Hyperemesis. While that part of pregnancy has completely sucked, taken the joy out of my days, and made being a good mom to Teagan really difficult, there is one thing that has made this pregnancy so much easier and that’s @maternit21plus 💙 their non invasive prenatal test has taken some stress out of my days knowing my sweet little boy is healthy and I don’t have to worry about any surprises in his genetic health come September. That is getting me through each hard day of this pregnancy. We can’t wait to meet you little guy 💙💙 📷: @celticgrayphotography
  • I’m 15 weeks pregnant today. I don’t even know how that’s possible! People aren’t lying when they said time goes by so quickly the second pregnancy. Feeling so grateful to be growing this little guy and chasing my sweet girl around🤰🏼

  • I don’t know how I survived life or motherhood before I started using oils. I turn to these products for my energy boost, to give me a good nights sleep, for a little extra confidence, to tame toddler tantrums, to support a healthy pregnancy and so much more. I was so skeptical but I jumped in with both feet and we’ve never looked back 🌿
  • Those moments when you really hope your child’s sass will help them lead a company and not a prison gang 🤦🏼‍♀️
