The Beauty of Selfcare. Helping moms connect with themselves with real talks, beauty inspiration, and practical tips for loving yourself.
Operating as usual
Here's the deal... this is what 39wks and 5days looks like. I am due on Wednesday 😳
I had no reason to believe I would get here! This round has had me exhausted so my form of nesting has been secluding and napping.
Yup. Some women get that burst of energy and do all the things. But for me, this time at least, I needed to give myself some alone time.
I wanted to tell you all how much I love being here and that I will be back shortly... probably even next week with the newest little baby in tow 😉 See you then!
Holy canoli, where did the day go?!
I'm living that mom life right now and today has been wholey dedicated to my 5 year old, so I missed my video time!
8 days into the school year and we got a positive covid test from one of his classmates 🤦🏻♀️ It won't be the last time it happens I'm sure, but here we are.... doing virtual learning for the next 2 weeks.
Remember my talk about setting up your space with intention? Well, I'll be doing that all weekend to ensure that my buddy has a good work place while he connects with his class.
Do you have am awesome setup at home for your kids? Show me a picture 👇👇👇 for inspiration!!
Oh my mama heart... this sweet boy started Kindergarten today 🥺
I'm so happy for him, and he is so excited!
But can we talk about REAL transformation?
We crossed the parking lot and got to the side walk and he slipped his little hand out of mine, "I don't need to hold your hand anymore mom."
No buddy, you don't... and I'm so proud and thankful for your independence.
And if we're being really honest, this day didn't make bedtime sweeter (helloooo tired, grumpy, and stubborn!)
You were the 1st to show me that love only grows the heart. And as we start all of these new stages together, I know our hearts will only grow more 💗
So here's to big moments and new beginnings... to Kindergarten and another in preschool and new babies and being a big brother again...
This next year is going to take the cake 🎂
Those Sunday vibes have me... not looking like this 😆
But I'm feeeeling good!
Getting fed my by my inlaws, compression socks on, and my kids are fully occupied without me. Sounds like self-care to me!
How are you treating yourself this Sunday? Have you gotten yourself some self-care?

Want to hear tips on decluttering your space? your beauty routines? your brain?! Watch the live videos I've been sharing over the last 2 weeks!
It's very nearly GO TIME for moms everywhere, and I've got one big tip to kick off your week:
Do a brain dump!
Dust off your planner, steal your kids drawing pad, or do a talk-to-text email to yourself... but get some stuff out of your brain!
Whether your kids are going virtual, in person, or you're a fully committed homeschool queen... you've got enough going on.
Get your head decluttered from all the junk, the news, the scroll, the hype and.the never ending list. Once it's all out you'll be able to refer to it when you need instead of using all that energy trying to keep it in your head!
I get to be a foundation model!!

Life happened today! I had my 32 week prenatal appointment (everything looks good!) and then before I knew it, the time for my LIVE had come and gone 🤦♀️
This week we are talking decluttering and simplifying... so I'll be on TOMORROW at my usual 12pm mst slot, but for now... check out the IG live I did this morning talking about how skincare cam simplify your getting ready routine.
A lot of people will tell you not to look back, but I disagree.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are a lot of different things that happened in our past to bring us to this moment...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️beautiful memories with loved ones (some that may not be around anymore)
〰️victories over challenges that make us stronger⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰️lessons that had to be learned the hard way.... over and over again⠀
I believe we need to honor our past and be able to look back to gain helpful perspective. It doesn't mean we get to live in the past or dwell on things that can't be changed.
Rather, I use my past as a tool to remind me... I've done hard things before. I've survived tragedy. Time is fleeting. I have done good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The only way to MOVE may be forward, but we should LOOK in all directions and appreciate every perspective.
The gorgeous Desert Rose palette is available to everyone TODAY!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These colors are luscious and highly pigmented... keep it soft for everyday looks or build it up for a glam look. You can't go wrong!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My favorite part is knowing that I am using clean ingredients that I can feel good about (even when I'm 31 thousand weeks pregnant 🤰🏻)
New makeup means a full look!
Check out this gorgeous seasonal palette:
Desert Rose 😍
I'll see you back HERE at 12pm Mst / 2pm Est
I've changed a lot over the years.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've changed how I handle friendships, my career industry, even the foods I like to eat...okay, mostly I've just ADDED to the list of foods I like, but still.
I've changed through marriage and I have definitely changed the most through motherhood.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the ways that matters most, those changes have been in GROWTH and IMPROVEMENT.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Change isn't linear. There will always be steps back into the old, even negative, habits when there are lessons to be learned.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So the next time you feel like you're moving in reverse, like you're career has stalled, like you've spent the day yelling at your kids, remember...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You're learning how to be better Every. Single. Day. Even if you don't see it.
I'm not even trying to be humble... I did that 👇
Why do we need to down play our successes?
(Hint: we don't!)

My nails may not change the world...but they can sure put a smile on my face 😘
