Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did you use the extra hour to put yourself first? I hope so! I had a pretty low-key weekend but dragged myself out of my pajamas on Saturday morning for breakfast with a dear friend and a visit to the Sugar and Cloth Girl Crush Market — so many pretty things! It finally felt fallish in Texas so I opted for comfy casual peplum and denim for our date. We sipped lattes at Tout Suite and gave ourselves a little tasting menu for breakfast. It was a lovely start to the weekend.
Ever since having my son, “me” time is more precious than ever — and that includes the time it takes me to get ready each day. Whether I’m in yoga pants and a messy pony or actually get dressed for the day, there’s one thing I always include in my routine: makeup. For me, taking a few minutes everyday to apply some makeup makes me feel fresh and beautiful and ready to start my day. And even with pretty sensitive skin, I’ve now mastered what I call my 5-minute makeup routine, and with that comes the need for quality makeup I can count on.
Ever since I had my son back in January, I put my PR and marketing career on hold to focus entirely on our growing family. Being a SAHM is the most incredible experience, but it’s also the hardest job on the planet. Harder than what I expected. Harder than what people told me. Harder than I think I could’ve even prepared for.
