Maternity Safe Nail Polish? Sign Me Up! – Knocked Up Nails Review

April 22, 2017

One thing that I’m especially loving about my changing body is how fast my nails grow. Thanks hormones and prenatals! Since they’re growing at a lovely pace, I like to keep them painted and pretty.

Brushing Bella’s Hair is Now Easier with Milk + Sass!

March 21, 2017

Disclosure: I received product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My daughter has long hair. I mean…REALLY long hair. Past her bottom.

OMG Nail Strips Review

Y’all, I don’t know what clicked in me a few months ago, but I have been really into nail art. I always thought it was cool to look at on Pinterest and Instagram, but I was a little hesitant in trying it myself in fear of failing. I had marble nails, Disney nails and ombre leopard print. I still have work to do on leopard print, but thankfully I can…

Vidal Sassoon – Achieving Salon Looks for Less!

As a young mother, it’s difficult to find time to spend on myself. I’ve “rocked” the same hair style since I was in high school, jumping from bleach blonde to black every few months. Now that my hair has been black for well over two years, it is finally getting into prime shape. Bleaching your hair is torture to hair, and it’s a long journey to reverse the process. Even…
