Colossal Big Shot Mascara Review

A few weeks ago I received the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara complimentary from Influenster to do some testing.  I also received the Master Precise Curvy eyeliner as a bonus. I normally use Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, but this mascara makes some pretty big claims so I figured I’d give it a shot….

My Little “Bum”pkin

These pictures were so much fun to do!  I saw this adorable picture of a baby with a pumpkin painted on his butt on Pinterest a while back and have been patiently (haha) waiting to do this with Squish.  So last weekend I finally got everything together and took Squish over to my friends house…

Halloween DIYS

As I might have mentioned before, Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday! And with this being Squishy’s first Halloween, I’m double excited!  We spent this morning driving all over town for supplies, but after Kroger, Hobby Lobby, and THREE trips to Walmart we finally got everything we needed.  We did two crafts today: Halloween “bum”kin painting and…

Squishy is SIX MONTHS OLD!

Today was a big day for my little monster! Not only is he SIX months old (NOOO 😭), he had his six month check up, too!  He now weighs 15 lbs and 5 oz and is 27 inches long! He had to get four shots today, and it broke my heart. It hasn’t gotten to…

Russian Piping Tips: Part One

About a week ago I did a giveaway on my Facebook page for a dozen cupcakes. So of course, everything fell apart this week and I’m just now getting around to making them. But thanks to my procrastinating ways, I got to use my new Russian piping tips on them!  I got these in the…

S’more Cupcakes

When I think of fall I think of cold weather, leaves changing, flannel shirts, and my absolute favorite thing: S’MORES! I’ve been on a cupcake kick lately, and when I saw this recipe for s’more cupcakes I just couldn’t help myself. They turned out AHMAZEBALLS!! A deep, rich, tender chocolate cupcake on top of a…

Munch Mitt Review

Over the past few weeks Squishy has been teething like crazy and wanting to chew on EVERYTHING! One issue we’ve been having is that he hasn’t quite mastered holding something while he chews on it. He can pick it up and get it to his mouth, but will drop it after a few seconds. This…

Harvest Snaps Review

I’m always excited to try new foods. Especially new SNACK FOODS. So when I opened my Flawless Voxbox from Influenster, I was really excited to see these Snapea Crisps by Harvest Snaps! Apparently someone else was excited to try them, too. Blair ate half the bag while I was changing Squishy’s diaper! Well thankfully I…

Flawless VoxBox

Want to know what puts me in a FANTASTIC mood? Opening my front door and seeing a brand spanking new Voxbox from Influenster! 😬😍 I’ve been “patiently” waiting on this to come on (read: checking the mail multiple times a day), and it’s here! I didn’t really realize how bad we need a new welcome…

Maybelline Better Skin Powder Review

I got this great new powder from Influenster to try out, and I’ve gotta tell you. I LOVE IT. I will be buying it after I run out. So let’s break it down. Pros: smooth finish goes on easy with brush stays on for at least 2 hours with really oily skin Cons: not full…

10 Things I Wish I Would Have Known About Pumping

I love pumping! Said no breastfeeding mom ever. Ok seriously, breast pumps ARE super helpful. Wether it’s because you’re having problems nursing, need to increase supply, or stock up on your freezer stash for when you go back to work, breast pumps are a great tool! That being said, it still pretty much sucks to…

Breastfeeding is HARD

 Breastfeeding is the most natural thing in the world.  What? Are you on crack?? I’m 99% sure whoever said this never actually breastfed a baby. Ok so maybe it IS the natural way for your body to feed your baby, but it definitely doesn’t come naturally to everyone. There’s a serious learning curve for mama…
