tips & advice



my family and

little ones



Raising little ones is all consuming. We worry if we are doing enough… we worry if we are doing too much… We find ourselves concentrating so hard on our littles & wonder what is left of the person we were before their arrival. Mama, we all feel it. Let’s journey together, lift each other up & be a village for one another…

The absolute best-ever clean beauty lipsticks! I love them all!

Somewhere around baby number three, I had a realization that I simply could not continue to prioritize my littles ALL of the time. It was plain & simple: if I was going to survive this mom-gig, I was going to have to put myself on the priority list…

and for me, that includes making myself look good. When I feel good about how I look, I feel better about myself. Plain & simple…

best clean beauty lipstick

And, for real, of ALL my clean beauty finds, the best of the best are these Bite Beauty Amouse Bouche lipsticks. Y’all. They are SO. GOOD.

Like bold and dramatic color without drying out my lips good.

Like amazing line of colors to choose from good.

Like holy grail of lipsticks good.

I line first with their lip liners (also clean. also a holy grail), then apply my lips and done. I love how well the liners and lipsticks blend to tweak the colors so that my bright pink can be slightly more purple, more muted or more red depending on my mood. And yes, a bright bold lip has sort of become a signature for me, but it really started with falling in love with these lipsticks and just wanting to wear them every day…

And bonus: right now they are on sale at Sephora… I think I may have to stock up on a few more…

Maybe a neutral…

Who am I kidding? It will be dramatic. Again.
