514 Beauty Post – 60′s Mineral Slick

514 Beauty Post – 60′s Mineral Slick

Sometimes, a little retro drama is just what the doctor ordered.  These Bare Mineral shadows are next level in opacity (I highly recommend them if you’re not one for primers and bases!).  Mirage, the darker of the set, is a lot like the two-toned Kat Von D shades – and that baby blue… What I’m […]

514 Beauty Post – Witchy Woman

514 Beauty Post – Witchy Woman

My greatest fear? Living someone else’s life. Been feeling a little haggard these past few days, but oh-so-satisfied.  Evenings of “me” time can stretch on when little one’s asleep, and sometimes the man and I only end up tucking ourselves in well past our bedtime.  Days are delicious (albeit tired) in any sense, and I’m feeling […]

Beauty Review – Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub

Beauty Review – Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub

Coffee was key during pregnancy for me, and is proving to be quite the indulgence these days when life can feel a little nonstop.  While drinking it has never been a daily habit (and still isn’t), the times I do get to sip on one are absolute bliss.  Coffee generally makes me a better person […]
