MY THREE


These are my people. My whole heart in two photos. It's weird to think about where I would be in life without these three. I'm so very thankful they are mine.

WEEK IN REVIEW VIA INSTAGRAM POSTS - WEEK 3

It was another wonderfully relaxing week around here. We're trying to soak up these last little bits of summer until Hallie goes back to school. I know I've already said this, but I'm seriously going to miss the days spent with her when she goes back. I also got really exciting news this week! I'm finally able to shift my shifts at work. This is huge for our little family! I've worked 4:30pm-1am for the last year. I miss out on everything! Dinners, bathes, bedtime, school functions, and sports. It's been tough on us. Now I'll be working from 10:30pm-6:30am. Hallie seriously broke down and started crying when we told her the news. She's a little sensitive, that one. We hope you all had a great week, as well!

UNDER $50 FRIDAYS - WEEK 3

So I actually found the dress first for this week's outfit and fell in love! It just looks so comfy and perfect for a weekend out in these hot Georgia months. Anything to try and beat this ridiculous heat! I'm also the proud new owner of that watch. ;)

Under $50 - 3

HOLY GRAIL PRODUCTS - FOUNDATION

As much as I wish and hope, I'll probably never be a beauty blogger. When I thought about coming back to blogging, I knew I wanted to add more beauty posts, but honestly I have no idea what I'm talking about. I worked at Sephora for a good year and half and learned a lot, and I've worked with a lot of different skin tones and types. I think the big thing that I wanted to share is my, what I call, holy grail products. You guys probably know the ones, the things you can't live without in your beauty routine. The ones that you search and search for the perfect one, then you find it and never want to let it go! I'm sorry, what? I'm the only one that has a love affair with my beauty products? Oops. Luckily I've tried a lot (a lot, a lot, a lot) of products and learned which ones you can do drugstore (Hello, two children I want to be able to send off to college one day!) and what products should really be left to the big guys.

With all of that said, today I wanted to share my holy grail foundation. And it's Covergirl. You read that right, Covergirl. Their foundation is my absolute holy grail foundation. I posted how infatuated in love with their 3 in 1 foundation on Instagram not too long ago, and got a great response! I had a lot of ladies tell me they tried it and loved it after being on the hunt for awhile. I know how hard it can be to find something that (a) can stand up to those sticky fingers near your face all day, (b) doesn't make you shine bright light a diamond after an hour, and (c) doesn't break the bank (it's sold for around $7 at Target), so I wanted to share it on here as well!

Another great thing about this foundation is the fact that it works great with all skin types. I know I sound crazy, but it honestly does. I have ridiculous skin that isn't in one category. So, so greasy during summer and so, SO dry during winter. This foundation has held up great in all seasons! It's called 3 in 1 because it is supposed to be a primer, concealer, and foundation all in one. I wouldn't go as far as to say it's THAT good, but I'm also a full coverage kind of girl. I still use a primer and concealer most days, but I could definitely see it working for someone who likes less coverage as all three steps.
