Monday Beauty Mantra

"Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer."

I am SO excited to be traveling to a city this week that I've never visited before, Washington D.C.!  And the best thing is, my kids are going with us this trip!  It was relaxing going to Costa Rica recently just as a couple, but Scott and I kept saying while we were there that we really wanted to take our kids on a fun trip once we got back!  As exhausting as it is traveling with little ones, to see their excitement on a plane, bunking up in hotels (their absolutely fave thing), and the overall adventure of seeing a new city is a beautiful thing.  Remember our trip to San Francisco and LA with our 3?  The pictures remind me just how much fun our kids are to travel with!

We definitely will not look as chic as Joan Collins and her monogrammed Louis Vuitton luggage while in the airport however...actually very far from it!  With my three in tow, they'll be backpacks, strollers, and snacks falling out of my carry on and my kids mouths! Probably a little whining about the long security lines or someone will have to go to the bathroom while there is turbulence in the air, but since I know what to expect, it shouldn't be that daunting.  You have to learn to chuckle through those small inconveniences when traveling with children.  And the fact Joan is wearing an all white outfit while flying is a definite no no for this mom - there is a 99% chance of staining whatever I wear because someone will spill something on me!! Guaranteed.  Dark printed clothing is the way to go! 

Of course I've been scouring the Internet, Pinterest, and Washington based blogs to see what we should do in our short amount of time there.  Luckily it sounds like there is no shortage of things to do and see! What better way to learn about the world than to travel it right?!

Have you been to Washington D.C.?

Monday Beauty Mantra


"Now matter how SERIOUS life gets, you gotta have that one person you can be completely SILLY with."

My boys sadly have to make trips to buy makeup and beauty stuff with me ALL of the time.  Luckily, they usually know how to make the best of these outings to Sally Beauty, Sephora, or the Target makeup aisles.  On a recent trip to Ulta, I happened to lose sight of Walker and his older brother (don't judge, they're really quick to disappear) until I found him being very serious about trying all of the different fake hair buns on the top of his head!! And him being serious about this was what made catching him in the act all the more funny!  

I know I can always count on Walker to crack me up even when he has no idea he's doing it. He's my "wild child" I guess you could say and even though he's a handful at times, he is not afraid to be silly which really helps in those moments when you need a good laugh or even when you didn't realize you needed one.  He can be inappropriate at times, but in the most hilarious of 6 year old ways where you know you shouldn't laugh, but you can't help yourself.  I hope he never loses his zest for life and trying to make his family and friends smile any chance he can get. 

Of course he thought it was comical once I caught him and suggested I take his picture with his favorite hair piece...ok, twist my leg funny guy. 

Do you have that person in your life you can count on to be silly with?

Monday Beauty Mantra


"When you look at a field of DANDELIONS, 
you can either see a field full of WEEDS, or a field full of WISHES."

How GREAT is this quote??!!  We can look at everyday obstacles/troubles and have a negative attitude about them and let them fester inside of us OR we can turn them into something positive and at the very least, learn something from them.  Such a simple idea, but the comparison of weeds to wishes is awesome.  Here are 2 recent obstacles that I turned into positives...

1.  I was approached to to do 2 weddings in one day - that's fantastic for a small business like myself.  The obstacle was that one was not in the same city as mine.  That same wedding also had an additional obstacle of a 3:30am start time - no kidding. That means I left my house at 2:15am while some people were just getting in from a night out!  The positive of that early start time, was that they were both at totally different time frames due to their ceremonies.  The 2nd wedding was in town, however was a very large party that needed to be done in a time frame I physically would not be able to do alone.  Obstacle! Did I want to give up this party bc of that?  No way!! So I searched around for an assistant to help me complete the 2nd wedding.  And by the grace of God, found the perfect person who helped that hectic day flow seamlessly and I was completely confident in how she represented my company.  Thank you Wendy, you are a makeup angel!!! 

2.  The picture above was taken early one morning when I decided to get all 3 of my kids off the couch (I know that's the beauty of summer break, but the laziness was driving me crazy!) and take them for a walk. Vivian got lucky and had me pull her in the wagon because the boys were riding scooters and she couldn't keep up:)  We were doing this because I am having a bit of an issue with the gym I currently am a member of and was doing my own little "protest" if you will, of not walking through their doors because they recently started charging me additional money for the fact I have over 2 kids.  Not a huge deal, but it wasn't what I signed up for when they basically begged me to renew this year.  I renewed because child care was FREE at the time, then after I paid in full for the entire year (of course), now they're changing the rules of the game on me.  It troubles me to feel I've been had, so taking my kids outside for our own "free" exercise made me feel better about my situation.  The gym still has my money, so I'm sure they could care less that I haven't walked thru their doors with my kids again.  But including my kids in my exercise routine was a good feeling, rather than putting them in that gym childcare where the person that should be watching them is actually glued to their iPhone the whole time.  

I know these aren't world problems I've been dealing with and I am thankful these are about the most difficult issues I am currently having.  

Vivian calls dandelions "flowers" and I will never let her think otherwise.

Monday Beauty Mantra


As I sit here writing this blog post, my head is swimming thinking about all I have to, need to, and want to accomplish today and this week.  From work priorities, blogging stuff, and the everyday personal things, it all just seems overwhelming when I start to actually list it out.  And on top of all of it, as of this Monday my children have officially started their summer vacation.  Which sounds nice and relaxing doesn't it?  Unless, you are a stay at home mom who also runs her own business out of her house and has been used to having a quiet house to herself from 9:30am-3pm to accomplish things.  

Now I have three little people to keep happy and entertained all while trying to still run my same schedule.  I've literally been attempting to write these 2 small paragraphs for the past hour and a half now because I've had to either get someone something to eat, break up a scuffle between 2 brothers, give them ideas of things to do that don't involve TV (because they're SO bored already on the first day at home), or help my toddler in the bathroom.  So I needed to read this by David Allen (no I don't know who he is, but I thank him for this quote) because I must realize that it is not expected of me to do everything.  I think this is a pressure many of us moms put upon our selves on a daily basis of trying to do it all.

I'm going to have a lot of alone time with these 3 angels this summer!

As my blog and my freelance business grow, I am thankful but it also presents challenges.  I find myself wanting to respond to every single inquiry and "opportunity" from brands that contact me to work with me. And I tell you, I get at least 20+ a day, which on top of other emails,  is practically impossible to respond to them all.  Especially if I actually want to parent, interact with my children and husband, and have some sort of relationship with them over my computer.  I want to blog every day (ok at least 5 days a week) and for my business to get bigger and better because isn't that what I am supposed to want since I started this blog?  Why would I want it to just stay status quo, never want my page visits to grow, never want a bigger number of my Instagram or Facebook followers and just be happy with whatever number of people choose to follow me?  I value the readers that continue to come back and comment, but why would I want even more to have to respond to which equals more time on my computer?  Because I am human, and we like to be liked, and isn't that what social media is all wrapped up in?  

I read a fantastic article in my June Glamour magazine by the actress Zosia Mamet from the show Girls.  Which I have never seen an episode of, but I hear is pretty entertaining. We watch more Disney channel than HBO in my house.  It's called "No, I Won't Lean In, Thanks" and it's short but hits the freakin' nail on the head discussing why isn't it ok for women to be perfectly happy with just running a small coffee shop (or makeup blog) instead of feeling pressure to run an "empire?" Why is it looked down upon if I don't want to start my own makeup line, have a raging YouTube following, or I haven't worked with Oprah's face yet?  What about the hundreds of brides I've worked with on the most special day of their life?  I think that's a pretty big deal to get entrusted to work on those faces and it is very fulfilling.  I'm thankful that as being a small business owner, I am the maker of my own destiny.  If I want a "promotion" it's up to me and only me as to how I'm going to get it.  And that promotion might be to stay put and happy with my current job description because it's manageable.

So in conclusion my ranting comes on a Monday, which isn't surprising, as it's the day I always feel most overwhelmed. Hopefully I can take my own advice to just take each day as it comes and try to prioritize what is most important each day in my work life.  I must always remember that I am a mom first, and these three people at home with me until August deserve a fun summer.  Which means not looking at the back of moms head while she answers emails!  Hang in there with me readers, I love this blog and will be posting good stuff during these summer months but it might not be every single day because hopefully I'll be at the park or teaching my kids how to be stronger swimmers.  But have no fear, I'll still be wearing makeup during all of the above activities and feel the need to share what I wore...hahahaha!

Monday Beauty Mantra



"I believe in LOVE at first sight.  Because I am a MOM."
author unknown

This weekend was crazy busy and filled with so much fun despite a lingering chest cold I've had for a whole week.  My cousin got married at an outdoor farm and Vivian was the flower girl in his wedding which are what these pics are from.  She made it down the aisle (while my holding her hand, PS- I was not a bridesmaid!), but then decided she'd rather sit down with me than stand up for everyone to see her pretty 'bride dress' as she called it.  Scott and I got to go out Friday evening with just adults...this rarely happens!  We also made an impromptu stop by my best friends new house and hung out with her family which totaled 7 kids between the two of us until late into the night!  Then Sunday enjoyed being outside in the beautiful weather with all of our neighbors while the kids enjoyed the first slipnslide of the year.  

This weekend proved just how much I love hanging out with my kids.  Of course Friday night was glorious for a couple hours away with just me and the hubby, but it was also nice to have had a new babysitter who gave my children glowing recommendations that they were wonderful and she'd come back anytime.  If you're a parent, you know just how hard it is to leave your kids with a new person but when you find someone that seems to like them just as much as you do (ok, not that much!), then you've struck gold.  

This quote is true about love at first sight because when I first laid eyes on them when they were born, it was almost like my heart hurt I was so in love with each one of them.  Funny, I also fell in love with my husband the first time I laid eyes on him as well, but that's another blog post;)  Guess I am a sucker for love. *My lipstick in the picture above is L'Oreal Colour Riche British Red in case you were wondering!*

ONE MORE thing - if you are a mom or soon to be mom, you must watch this YouTube video shout out to all moms from Kid President.  It is a riot and will no doubt make you smile today! "Mom is Wow upside down."

Happy Monday to everyone!

"The more we say thanks, the more we find to be thankful for. 
And the more we find to be thankful for, the happier we become."
Douglas Wood, The Secret Of Saying Thanks.

I hope everyone had a wonderful family filled Easter weekend!  I am sharing this video of a prayer that little Vivian said for us before dinner last night.  Warning - it's pretty long (Over 2 minutes).  And if you're not her mom/dad you might not understand some of what she says (it's a gift us parents have to understand our kids mumbled words!), and you'll hear little giggles from her brothers because it went on, and on, and on with her thanking God for literally everything! Excuse the very beginning where I have to get onto my youngest son before the prayer began - he was getting a little cray cray- HA!! Not unusual.

But bless her heart, this prayer shows that the more we say thank you, the more we realize how much we really have to be thankful for.  Especially the little things, like right down to "mommy's pretty eyeshadow" (about a minute into the prayer), ice cubes, and banana popsicles at the end.  I love how she always prays with her eyes open and her Thank You's sound like "Jank You".  I hope as she gets older that she always stays so positive about how much there is to be thankful for. 

Enjoy the start to your week and make sure to say thank you for something each day.  Even if it's for your go-to lipstick that you can rely on works every time!

"The meaning of life is to find your gift.  The purpose of life is to give it away."
William Shakespeare

Happy Monday everyone! Have you ever thought about what your "gift" is?  I believe that I have 2 IMPORTANT GIFTS to share...  

1. After having children, I realize that motherhood is my first true gift.  They are my purpose in life, and they deserve to have an involved, loving, and supportive mother to help guide them through their own lives.  So my gift requires me to be that mother they need who is a mentor, good listener, and leads by example, but also makes the journey of life, a super fun one!  I certainly don't consider myself the perfect mom by any means, but that doesn't mean I can't try to be the best one I can be.

2.  My second gift I was given, is the art of makeup.  After every makeup job I perform, I realize it is truly is a gift I give to my clients to make them feel like their most beautiful self.  I owe this all to my husband who encouraged me over 6 years ago to start my own freelance business because he realized I had a gift that could be turned into a business.  I was very doubtful in the beginning I could pull it off because this idea came about right after I started to have kids.  Although becoming a mother for the first time was super overwhelming, I realized that I needed that creative outlet for "me time" and it just happened to be an added bonus that that outlet, could make money.  Every time a client looks in the mirror after I'm finished and they smile from ear to ear because they like what they see, then I realized I gave away my gift.  And it feels amazing.

*The photo above is over a year old, but is still one of my favorites that combines my 2 gifts - motherhood and sharing my love of makeup with my own daughter!  Thanks to my friend Abbey of Dylan Blue Photography for capturing this.  (She is also a mother of 2 who shares her gift of photography with me and all of her clients!)*

What is your gift?

"When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'HAPPY.' They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand LIFE"
Quote from John Lennon

This was a very busy, but super fun weekend!  It was full of HAPPY LIFE events!

It started off with a trip to the University of Georgia Vet School open house where my kids got to tour the campus and see into the life of what it takes to become a veterinarian.  They got to see all sorts of animals from zebras, llamas, camels, cows, dogs, and reptiles.  It was truly fascinating and I even learned a lot!  
I also got to work with two sorority sisters I hadn't seen in years and help these two moms/friends with a fresh new approach to their makeup routine, which is always rewarding.  Immediately after we were done, they were excited and ready to take their face charts I had made them and head straight to  Ulta to pick themselves up some new products! 
My youngest son made his first hit at his baseball game and you have no idea how happy this made him (and his mama) after games and games of striking out! Small victory for sure, but he was smiling from ear to ear after that game.  That one hit gave him the confidence he needed.  
We also attended my niece's 3rd birthday party where Vivian got to run and jump around with her cousins.  And to finish it off, we got to visit with one of Scott's college fraternity brothers and his new wife who came all the way in from Italy and are expecting their first baby together - such a happy time of life!

It was a very HAPPY weekend, that's what life is all about.  What did you do this weekend?

Monday Beauty Mantra


"Learn to appreciate what you HAVE before time makes 
you appreciate what you HAD."
author unknown

This is a mantra I need to constantly work on remembering.  I have been known to wish away the 3 year old (and sometimes 5 year old!) temper tantrums, wish that my 9 year old house had drapes and rugs in rooms that still aren't decorated the way I want, and complaining about how out of shape I feel.  Well one day when I have a teenage daughter and sons who want to ignore me completely at times, I'll probably want those quick spurts of temper tantrums that usually end up with hugs 15 minutes later because they completely forgot what the tantrum was about!  And this house I live in, is where all 3 of my kids were born which means more than the way it's currently decorated.  Feeling out of shape?  Well, I'm only 36 years old so I've probably got more potential energy and ability to start working out harder than I will years down the road!  There's no time like the present when it comes to getting into shape...at any age.

The photo above is actually a couple of months old  and I took it while we were exploring the park and Vivian was fascinated with the ducks.  In all honesty, I don't do enough of this with her or the other two because I seem so consumed with keeping my freelance makeup business thriving or consistently blogging and keeping up with social media.  If I were to really put this mantra into action, I would soak up more moments playing with my kids or starting a new hobby, than say wasting countless hours on Facebook seeing what everyone else is doing (I've actually gotten a lot better and moving away from FB - Twitter is where I waste most of my time!!).

From now on I'm going to appreciate my small children because they will get older.  I will appreciate my lack of wrinkles on my face and the few gray hairs I have right now because I know they'll both only get worse.  And I will appreciate my workload where it is today because I still have the flexibility to be at home with my kids and to work around their schedules and extra curricular activities.

Happy start of the week to you!  What are you currently appreciative for?

Monday Beauty Mantra



"Be Yourself.  No one can say you're doing it wrong."
Peanuts creator, Charles M. Schulz

One of the biggest things I want to make sure that I instill in my kids as they grow up is that they should never apologize for who they are, what they look like, or what they believe in.  And even though my three have similar traits and features from the outside, they are certainly all very different internally and have their own sense of style already that I like to embrace.

My boys could care less really when it comes to their clothing at their ages right now, but they do have their quirks.  My oldest, Jack, only likes to wear tall socks and is a complete rule follower, he longs to make people happy.  My middle child, Walker, always wants his hair to look perfect and we lovingly compare him to "Animal" from the Muppets because he acts so crazy.  And then there's my sweet 3 yr old Vivian.  She might have more opinions on her clothing and hair than I do at 36.  She hates wearing denim (what?!), only wants to wear leggings, and despite her extreme girly love for lipgloss, she still wants to attempt to hang with everything her brothers do.

I'll be honest, I take great joy in figuring out what I want to wear or look like each day.  It's like I can recreate myself daily.  And when I work with a client, I always start off asking them, "What do YOU want to look like?"  Even though I am considered the expert when it comes to makeup, I want to find out what their current makeup style is and where they want to go with it.  Not everyone wants to wear multiple layers of products and colors like I do everyday.  So what I think is best, isn't always going to be their style.  I'm just there to lead them in the direction they want to go and give them the tools to get there.

Just like the approach I want to be taking with my kids in every aspect of their lives.  I'm there for support, not to completely change them.  Happy Monday everyone!!

*This pic was taken on a visit to their grandmother's hair salon she's been going to since she was a teenager!! My kids had never seen these hair dryers (reminiscent of the ones in the beauty school dropout scene in the movie Grease) and were fascinated by these machines.  Jack thought they looked like space helmets!*

"It's okay to be a glowstick. 
Sometimes we need to break, before we shine."
{Photo of Grace Kelly in the movie "To Catch A Thief," 1955.}   

It is the start of my kids spring break from school this week.  I wish I could say we have a big beach trip planned to relax in the sun, but we don't.  However,  I'm just happy to have a week without having to wake up super early to get everyone to school and without having to do homework every night (bc yes, even parents have to help with kindergarten and 2nd grade homework!).  And I've decided to take a short blog break as well.  It's much needed especially since my kids are going to be around all day with me - I can't imagine spending their spring break on my computer while they're at home. This is a great excuse for me to just hang with the little people who inspired me to start this "mommy with a makeup problem" blog anyway!

I have been on the verge of a blog burnout so this comes at a good time.  Of course I am SO thankful for the opportunities and places this blog has taken me (one of them below), that I won't be gone for long, but everyone deserves some time off every now and then.  Like this quote suggests, hopefully this little leave of absence will allow me to shine even bigger and brighter after I've had some good mommy/kid time away from the daily routine of creating, editing, and marketing blog posts!  Until then, signing off for a few days and I promise to be back soon!!

*But while I've got you here, I have to remind you that if you're in the Atlanta, Ga area on Saturday March 15th, to make your reservation for the BIG beauty event at Bloomingdale's Lenox I'm hosting.  

Here's a reminder what your $25 reservation fee is going to get you :
-that 25 bucks goes toward your makeup purchase credit and your makeover
-traincase FULL of beauty samples with that reservation
-breakfast
-runway show
-get inspired by regional and national makeup artists from the likes of MAC, Nars, Chanel, Laura Mercier, etc
-DJ entertainment
-step up manicure train case set with any purchase over $125
-lots of raffle opportunities throughout the morning of gifts over $250!!

Looks like another reason I need to rest up this week before the morning makeup date!  Hope to see you all there!

Monday Beauty Mantra



"Every flower that blooms, has to go through a whole lot of dirt."
author unknown

We had the MOST gorgeous weekend here in Athens.  Especially after our wild southern snow spell, the 70 degree temps were a warm welcome.  So when the weather gets spring-like, it inspires me to plant flowers.  Even though I have the blackest thumb on the planet and kill these things as soon as I plant them, it still makes me happy to try and keep them alive.  And who knew that Vivian would be so into the planting process?! She absolutely loved it, even with all of the dirt and soil involved.

So I love this quote because it is the perfect analogy of how things in life happen.  You have to endure a lot of yucky "dirt" to get those beautiful "bloom" moments.  I have often felt sorry for myself when going through unfortunately tough moments and seeing those stumbling blocks as dead ends - that nothing good can come of them.  But as cliche as it sounds, those bad times actually make the good times look and feel even better.  In my life, I've had difficult moments like the struggle to have children, to watching my husband endure multiple layoffs in business, to wondering why I put so much effort into my blog when at times it doesn't seem to be going anywhere - the end results always trump those extreme hard times we have had in our family.

We now have 3 healthy children (I always prayed for at least ONE when I didn't even think I would have any), those layoffs made my husband finally find a job he is proud of, and my blog has landed me amazing opportunities I never dreamed of.  Now this isn't to say this makes parenting or keeping these jobs easier, but they make us appreciate both more than if we had easily gotten pregnant and he had kept the same job for years without interruption in our financial situation. And even when my husband was going through those tough times of job searching, he stayed positive and encouraged me to start my own business and blog as something we could focus our energy on, which now I couldn't imagine my life without.  We are living proof that blooms are a direct result of dirt.

*And speaking of 'blooming', be sure to come see me as I host Bloomingdale's Beauty Event on March 15th at Lenox Square in Atlanta.  This will be a great way to get inspired for your spring makeup look and treat yourself to some new products - Details for registering here!*

Monday Beauty Mantra



"I believe that HAPPY girls are the PRETTIEST girls." 
Audrey Hepburn

Watching my little Vivian in a makeup store, makes me happy, because SHE gets really happy.  Her eyes seriously light up as she skips from aisle to aisle, "oohing and ahhing" at glitter nail polishes, bright pink lipsticks, and every eye shadow sample she can get her hands on.  I don't blame her, I love a good makeup store too. Could spend all day in one and never get bored.  She's becoming a lot like me in that respect.  It doesn't take expensive battery operated toys or jumbo stuffed bears to make her grin come out.  Just a simple colored lip balm, with a little bit of sparkle of course.  
I always remind her that she doesn't need a lick of it though to be pretty.  But I sure do understand how much fun it is to play in.

Happy Monday and I hope your week gets off to a beautiful start!

Monday Beauty Mantra



"MAKEUP IS NOT A TOOL MEANT TO MAKE AN UGLY THING BEAUTIFUL.
IT IS MEANT ONLY TO MAGNIFY THE BEAUTY THAT ALREADY EXISTS."

Mondays are overwhelming to me.  Just thinking about what all has to be accomplished in the 5 day work week, not to mention accomplishing those things?? So in the spirit of keeping this blog from overwhelming me today, I'm keeping it simple with a beauty based mantra Monday.  This is going to be one way I am going to try and stay ahead of what's to come Tuesday through Friday by keeping Monday blog posts easy and uncomplicated.  I found this mantra on Pinterest (duh) and I'm not sure who the quote belongs to, but I sure do feel it and agree 150%!  I'm going to constantly remind my clients, friends, and even myself this on a daily basis every time that makeup brush or lipstick hits the face.  

*If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this pic! I love it because not only am I wearing one of my favorite red lipsticks, MAC "Lady Danger," it's got a dandelion in it (how fun and carefree does it feel to wish on one??) but it's also a wall decal in my very own half bathroom in my house.  Makes going to the bathroom more delightful.*  

Happy Monday beautiful you.
