Disney Minnie Beauty By SEPHORA COLLECTION – Soooo cute!

Here’s the thing about growing up…

Disney Minnie

Don’t do it. Seriously, fight against it. I spent a great deal of my 20’s so incredibly anxious to be older. I wanted to be 21 so I could go to the cool clubs. I wanted to be 25 so I could rent a car. I wanted to be 30 because no one took 20-year olds seriously. Mannnnn, listen. SO dumb. I plan on being youthful for every y’all. Yeah, I know the dark circles under my eyes say otherwise but to hell with thinking I NEED to be a certain age.

I’m where I need to be and I’m going to be a big kid for as long as I live, y’all. And this is why I’m going giddy over this Disney Minnie Beauty By SEPHORA COLLECTION.

Can you EVEN?

Hilton New York Fashion District – Can I Just Move In?

Version 2

I hadn’t been to New York City in yearssssss. And I missed it. This time, however, I didn’t want to crash on a friend’s sofa. I wanted to stay in a swanky hotel in the middle of an area that was surrounded by lots of good shops and restaurants. I wanted to be close to where The Makeup Show NYC was going to be and I really wanted a hotel that had a really good room service menu.

Version 2

Don’t judge me, man. I’m fancy. I LOVE room service.

My girl Courtney and I settled on staying at the Hilton New York Fashion District for several reasons; one being that it was listed as an option on The Makeup Show NYC website. And also, Courtney said that she had never had a bad experience at a Hilton. Same here. 

And so we checked in. It really only got better from there.

Parenting Two Kids – I’m Still Surviving

IMG_8206

They say it’s pretty challenging going from 1 child to 2 and lemme tell you…it’s straight up bonkers, y’all. Even more so if you work from home, have a husband that travels a lot and don’t have any family in town. Seriously, if you’ve got kids AND have parents, in-laws and those that don’t mind helping you with your littles in town, you have nooooo idea how good you have it.

And I’m jealous. SO jealous.

Swamped isn’t even the word to describe why I haven’t been able to get a blog post up. Yeesh! Between The Makeup Show NYC and then the epic event that was the Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration, yours truly is beyond exhausted. But my heart is full and I’m grateful. 

Happy Mother’s Day to all of my beautiful mamas and I’m especially sending love and light to those who have angel babies and to those who have lost their mothers. 

Catch up on these links…

Eeeek! I can’t believe it. I’ve gotten out of my nerves and now I’m ready to go! I haven’t been to TMS NYC is yearsssss and I’m thrilled to return to the Big Apple for one of the most iconic beauty shows in the industry. I went to the Orlando show and had a ball.

The brands on my list?

  • Magnolia Makeup
  • NYX Cosmetics
  • Mario Badescu 
  • Sephora
  • Zuca
  • Kat Von D Beauty
  • Shea Moisture
