Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

And these are a few of my favorite things

I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for warmer weather. There is snow on the ground here, SNOW PEOPLE!! That is not acceptable for March 7th in my book.

Another reason I am ready for it to be warmer is because my hands have been SO dry recently. I probably wash them too much, but is that really a negative? Common…

So anyways, Chrissy got me hooked on this hand lotion from Bath & Body Works, Shea Cashmere from the true blue spa line. I am obsessed. It has the silkiest texture, and keeps my little hands super soft. This little guy packs with me in my purse everywhere I go.

And secondly I keep the PINK fresh and Clean lotion on my desk at work. It is super convenient because it has a pump and I can quickly get some lotion when I need it. I also love the scent. It is light and clean, so it doesn’t offend the coworkers… that I know of at least?

Thirdly, remember how I bought a house? Yeah, well that means I am poor, so I must find ways to make the dollars stretch. No more expensive shampoo for yours truly. SAD.

I have however found this line that I LOOOOVE. It reminds me so much of Kerastase, except it packs a much friendlier price tag.

It is the Ever Pure line from Loreal. It is sulfate free and also formulated for (cough, cough) color treated hair. 😉 You can pick it up at any drug store, Target, etc. I love that the conditioner has mint in it, and it doesn’t weigh my little baby hairs down.I also just picked these up from Old Navy. I’m poor, remember? 😉
I LOVE me some little summer dress. I find them perfect for work in the summer months. They are super inexpensive, and if you lose it, or have a happy hour red wine spill, no biggie, because it was $20.

    xox Ash,

  12. My hands are super dry, too!! Have you tried the Eos hand lotions? I have the green one and I love it! I keep it in my purse and use it all the time. It smells soooo good! When I run out I will try the B&BW.

    Tristan {at} Sunshine!

  13. just picked up that green dress and a chambray dress at old navy! any time i can get 2 dresses for less than what i almost spent on another dress goes down as a victory in my book!


  14. Megan G. says:


    I need to try that hand lotion and the shampoo. Sulfate-free sounds like a pretty sweet deal!

  15. Lauren says:

    Old Navy has really stepped up on their styles! I've bought so many things there recently!

  16. Brooke says:

    I love Kerastase, but can't bring myself to pay the price for it! So, I will deff try this line of shampoo. I bet it is pretty much similar because Loreal is the manufacture of Kerastase!

    =) Thanks for the tips!


  17. I use Pink fresh and clean everyday! I love the way it smells and that it hydrates my skin. Great dresses!

  18. SHAYNA says:

    It's still on the cooler side here too! I love the summer dresses for work! I sport them every year! Plus, it's comfort to the max! & I'm going to have to try the Loreal shampoo & conditioner! I need a good alternative to my sebastian s&c for every other use type stuff!

  19. Helene says:

  22. Raven says:
