My Daily Beauty Product Routine (Skincare/Makeup)

daily beauty routine

  I received an email from a reader recently asking me to list my daily beauty product routine, including what I use for skincare and makeup on a regular/daily basis. While I’ve written TONS of beauty product posts in the past, it’s always good to update the blog with what I am currently using in […]

Goodie Bag Giveaway!

I am hoping to start every Monday morning post from now through Labor day with a picture similar to this one. My son has finally reached that age where the beach is enjoyable for both of us. For so many years, it was more work than pleasure taking a child to the beach. If he isn’t by the […]

Rest Day And New Beauty Finds

  I ran a little over six miles yesterday morning. I felt so super great that I decided there must be something to the whole don’t-run-too-many-days-in-a-row-and-make-sure-you-crosstrain-thing. Today is a rest day. Want to occupy me for a bit? I don’t know what to do with myself when my routine is off. Maybe I should clean […]

Thinking Out Loud – Random Thoughts

  It works out perfectly to link up with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud fun since I have so much to say this morning. 1. Once again I found a load of laundry in my dryer. Even better, the clothes were still damp. This actually worked to my advantage early yesterday morning – I was able to […]

Thinking Out Loud – Talking With Emoji’s, Skincare And No Florida

  I figured I would be Thinking Out Loud this morning all about my travel necessities since I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HEADED DOWN TO FLORIDA TODAY. Yeah, SUPPOSED TO BE. I made the difficult decision to cancel my weekend escape to Florida because more snow is in the forecast which could, and with my luck, probably would, affect my flights. […]

Fascinating Things Friday

Good morning!  Welcome to Friday. I am quite excited that it is the weekend even if this heat wave is still going strong. I have had just about enough of the oppressive heat, I swear it is hotter here than in Florida. As hot as it is though,  I am truly enjoying waking up to sunshine and heading […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Skincare

I debated writing my usual post for today after seeing in the news the Tornado tragedy in Oklahoma. If my major problem at the moment is which sunscreen to use, I consider myself very lucky. This year has been a year like no other in recent memory; ever since Hurricane Sandy back in October, my […]

Get Your Chick On…With Sunblock

Some people rely on GU, sport beans, Gatorade. I rely on my chicking shirt to replenish my glycogen stores and send me flying. TRUE STORY: I couldn’t wait until Wednesday night’s 5k race to wear my new chick shirt.    Not easy to take a picture of yourself. I tried but it really didn’t work. […]
