Safe Make-up

Safe Make-up

After years of wearing MAC and loving the brand like I love my first born, I realized, I spend way too much money on products I’m unable to use anymore.

I own 56 different colors of MAC eye shadow alone. That isn’t an arbitrary number, I legitimately owe 56 different colors. Not to mention the pallet’s I’ve put together. An obsession to say the least.

BUT now that I’m a “grown up” or better yet a Mom with an allergy prone child, I look at whats in my products. Super annoying huh?

Arbonne is a game changer! Gluten-free, Vegan, botanically based… thank the gods! It’s even feels better going on.

Now, I’m not “naturally pretty”; That’s not a dig at myself, it’s just fact. I’m not going to pretend like I look like a super model when I wake up in the morning and that I’m perfect because truly, I’m not! I know what I’ve got that looks great and I also know that I need to put make-up on to look like a human every day.

So I’ve found some amazing things in my Arbonne stash that really make me feel beautiful, but are also safe for my body and my son’s.

You ask why it would matter to my son…

Well, I love the crap out of my kid. Any time I can squeeze, kiss, hug, or hold him, I’m doin’ it. Also, little boys mimic their Mom’s.

My brother used to want his nails painted when my mom would give herself a mani/pedi, as well as wear her high heals around the house. Don’t worry he is a well adjusted adult, and a lawyer, so we’re good.

When I get ready for the day, my son loves to “be like Mommy” and put on blush or powder. So… see… safe is important! Also, I’m not a bad person to want to be like in my opinion. I’m the coolest person I know. (LOL)

Some of my favorite Arbonne Make-up products are:

Little Black Dress

Little Black Dress


The “little black dress” is considered essential to a complete any wardrobe. Basic rules of fashion say that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was the first one to push the envelope in the 1920’s, creating a dress that peeled away the layers and showed a more sexy and elegant style.

Coco infused comfort and sophistication and made it simple and sexy. She wanted every woman to feel effortlessly classic and sexy within minutes of putting on the LBD. Coco truly embodied elegance and grace and her style and fashion have echoed for decades!

Because the LBD is meant to be a staple of the wardrobe for a number of years, the style of the little black dress ideally should be as simple as possible!



Boot Camp

Boot Camp

Happy Boot Camp Prep! Or is it?

I’m dreading this “active” thing like you wouldn’t believe. So here’s the deal, I was a dancer. That means no gym, no weights, no running, no problems. My weight work out consisted of lifting my right leg in the air and spinning in circles. So lets just get it right, I don’t know how to “work out”.

Now those dancing days have been LONG over but that doesn’t mean I’ll know what I’m doing. In 2010 I went to yoga Sometimes twice a day. Why I’m not a yoga instructor, I don’t know, but here is what I know.

Fact: I don’t do running

Fact: I don’t lift weights

Not to mention I’ve had open heart surgery twice, but that’s beside the point.

Boot Camp and Me? Ha!

Well, I got a wild hair up my ass and now I’ve signed up for this 3 days a week 5:30 AM, yes that early, boot camp. Wish me luck…
