Hi, friends. I’ve been trying SO hard to keep up with the “what I wore” posts. They’re fun to share and I’ve really been loving them aside from the fact I don’t take enough photos or maybe I don’t have enough variety of clothing… Either way, I’m sharing a few more things I’ve learned along the way about myself and these outfit photos below.
A few things I have learned from putting these monthly outfit posts together:
1. That mirror just stays filthy. Tiny kid hands touch it on repeat or I smear makeup on it accidentally. But I should clean it more often. 2. The background in these pictures sometimes change, but mostly it’s kid school stuff. I’m excited to see the backgrounds once summer is here and those bags & jackets get packed away. 3. I need some new jeans. haha. 4. I am SO ready to bust out summer clothing. Who else is so tired of all of this back & forth weather? Has your weather finally normalled out? We’re going from 50s to 70s to snowing to 70s. It’s completely insane, and completely Colorado like.
Which is your favorite? And, how was your weekend?
Be real with me… how many times have you cut yourself trying to use plastic wrap?! About a bajillion?! I KNOW! Me too! It is SO frustrating and really painful! I mean, ever get jalopeno juice on that cut?! THAT SUCKS! It just does. Today though, I’m here to share a kitchen victory with you and I KNOW you can appreciate this. Plus, I’ll be sharing a few bonus hacks too. The victory?! Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap NOW has a built-in slide cutter that ensures a clean cut, every single time. Like, is your mind blown?! Because mine is/was! I mean, watch the video and just look at mine & Maddie’s excitement! haha. Even the kids know how great this is.
Cover your tablet or phone in plastic wrap to create a “splatter guard” when cooking with online recipes in the kitchen. Even with the plastic wrap around your touchscreen devices, you’ll still have full functionality. I do this with my cookbooks too to keep them looking new and fresh.
Place a piece of plastic wrap under the caps of liquid travel bottles (shampoo, conditioner, etc.) to prevent leaks and spills while traveling. Nothing is worse than getting to your destination and realizing shampoo has spilled all over your bag.
Create an anti-blister grip by wrapping the handle of a wooden spoon, rake or paint roller in plastic wrap to make it easier to hold and more gentle on your hands. I do this to our utensils to help David’s hands actually. He loves to cook, is in cullinary school, but has bad hands. So the extra grip helps a ton. This hack helps tiny hands in the kitchen too.
Banish ice cream freezer burn by draping a sheet of plastic wrap over ice cream before sealing and storing. I love ice cream. But I love it on my time, like when I’m in the mood for it… therefore it sits in the freezer for well… basically ever. Thankful that I learned this tip a long time ago, otherwise my ice cream would be tossed into a trash can and I’d be a sad lady.
Hello, all. I hope you’re having an enjoyable day. Mine so far has been pretty decent, but it’s a Saturday afternoon as I’m typing this and our Saturdays are pretty chill. I realized I never shared any March outfits and after sharing February’s I wanted to try to make this a thing and here we are halfway through April and no March outfit post yet. I even talked about working on it here in this post. Life, y’all. Haha.

Aside from freak snow days, we’re hitting 70-80 degree weather so I feel like a few of my upcoming outfits will be more hiking attire. Ha. We’ve already gone hiking about a cajillion times in the last two weeks.
That’s all I’ve got for today… I wear so many more outfits, but it’s been really cold and weird weather, so the majority of my outfits have just been sweatpants and active wear while trying to keep warm.
A few posts back, I talked about my 2018 words and how/why self care is so important. You can read that over here if you’d like. I talked about Olay and how to Glow up and make sure your skin is looking it’s very best. Most people lose focus on their resolutions by the time February even rolls around… but with the help of Olay I’ve been able to keep up with my Glowing 😉
Some ways to make sure your skin is looking at it’s BEST include: make sure you’re drinking plenty of water. H2O is a big key to hydration. Exfoliate once or twice a week. Massage your facial products in. Clean your makeup brushes. Wear sunscreen. Clean your phone! A dirty phone makes for a dirty face. Wear blush. Weird, right?! But a pop of color can make your skin look more awake. Get plenty of sleep. Take your makeup off at the end of the day. Drink your water, eat those fruits and veggies (Watermelon is my favorite go-to,), cut down on the alcohol, and just glow.
In case you’ve forgotten or are new around here, I’ve been using the following:
The facial cleansers are: Olay MicropolishingCleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Facial Cleanser with Crushed Ginger & Citrus Extract Olay Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Facial Cleanser with Deep Sea Kelp & Aloe Extract
The body cleansers are: Olay Microscrubbing Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Body Wash with Crushed Ginger Olay Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Body Wash with Deep Sea Kelp
These are non-stripping cleansers that contain biorenewing hydrators that improve your skin’s condition as you wash, revealing your natural glow. Crushed ginger body & facial cleansers contain exfoliators that break down as you wash, creating a micropolishing effect that reveals a smooth surface for healthy looking and feeling skin. Clinically proven to enhance skin’s radiance after just one use (as tested using Olay’s unique chromometer technology).
I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my skin. It’s glowier than what it was before I started using this. And in the deep, dry winter months of Colorado, achieving any kind of “glow” is nearly impossible. Plus, it smells really good. (The Deep Sea Kelp one if my favorite of the two). We all know that winter months can and usually are brutal, espeically on our skin. Take control of that, use products that help moisturize your skin. You don’t have to look dry and pale and gross during the winter months. Fight back, glow up! Give Olay a try.
Today I wanted to hop on here and introduce you all to my favorite mascara. I’ve tried more than my fair share of mascaras in my day and this is honest to goodness my FAVORITE. The more SeneGence items I try, the more LipSense isn’t my favorite. I’ve been using LashSense with UnderSense (in Black) for a few months now and it’s amazing. Not only do my lashes get some volume and umph to em (thank you, UnderSense), but they’re also water resistant. I CAN GO SWIMMING AND IT NOT MESS UP MY MASCARA! Seriously, I’ve tried it for myself. I’ve watched videos of others trying it. Like, my mind was blown!
And when it comes to to wash, it doesn’t wear/tear my lashes out with it. Has that ever happened to you with “waterproof” mascara? You try to wash it off, and it takes out lashes with it? It’s not fun. Clumps aren’t fun either. My lashes look so much longer and fuller when I use this. And it’s so easy to use. You apply the UnderSense side first, then apply the LashSense (before the UnderSense dries). One eye at a time is how I apply mine.
Curl. UnderSense. LashSense. Done.
Water resistant. Long lasting. Heat and humidity resistant. Winning.
