I Needed This…Thursday Spa Night

I Needed This…Thursday Spa Night! I am trying to get back into my routine of getting regular facials and pedicures. It’s not easy when you are a mom of a toddler. It took some scheduling and planning, but I finally made it to get a spa pedicure, facial, and microdermabrasion. I even purchased a membership to force myself to get to the salon regularly! Watch the video and join me during my Thursday Spa Night! Continue reading

You may have noticed that I stopped blogging for a while. It wasn’t intentional, it’s due to motherhood and travel. I continued to think about my blog, every single day, and blog post topics would pop into my head, but Continue reading

Now that I am a mom, I still wear lipstick, but if I am going to be working from home all day, I will likely only wear chap stick. If I go out or we have company coming over, I will wear lipstick, but don’t bother to re-apply it often because I don’t Continue reading

This is a start of what will hopefully be more videos in the future.

At the television station, Continue reading
