Product Reviews from Sephora

*not a sponsored post*

Saturday I stole an hour to myself. During this hour I was able to grocery shop alone (tiny victory) and also made a quick stop at Sephora.

The first Item I was looking for:

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer РColor Correcting Adjust IMG_6215.jpg

I had grabbed a sample size while standing in line (it’s worse than the dollar section at Target!) and loved it from day one. I tend to be a little red and using this has allowed me to just used powder to even out my skin tone after this little miracle has calmed down any red.

I also needed mascara. The ones I was using ALWAYS clump. This one – the Sephora brand Lash Craft Length and Volume is amazing. Not one single clump. It didn’t feel heavy either. New favorite for sure.

Lastly, I had my hair done last week and I left with some waves thanks to my amazing hair dresser, Joel (Q The Salon). He told me I need to texture my hair to get the curls to hold. I picked up this small can of Drybar Triple Sec. Again- LOVE. I have very very fine hair and I don’t like it feeling full of product and it didn’t all. Bonus – it smells great. Downside, I seem to not be coordinated to actually curl my hair so it ended up just being a nice tousled look.

I will have to keep trying on the curling iron front. The struggle is real.

What are some of your go-to products?

Oh, Hello there.

Oops. Look at that. 3 months went by.

Sorry about that.

True to form our summer was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it summer. Yet…. we didn’t DO anything big. No large vacation. No big events. We just – well we lived our lives!

One notable thing Lee and I did was head to Oregon for a long weekend for wine tasting. IMG_5974.jpgIMG_0627.jpgIMG_5975.jpg

We had a great time and joined a few clubs. Shocker, I know.

We have spent the summer drinking wine, swimming in the pool, and enjoying our little family of 4.

Then we had Harvey visit.

Harvey was like that annoying college friend that comes to visit, overstays his welcome in a major way, and wrecks your house. Also, NOT invited back.

Thankfully our house did NOT flood but we were pretty nervous. This was our street:

Currently we are in what I have decided is HELL WEEK. or The First Week of School.

We are beyond able to deal at this point. Getting up early (It’s. Still. Dark. Outside) and getting 4 people dressed, fed, and out the door for a 7:45am tardy bell. Rough.

Lucky the school is literally 1/2 a mile away.

Our kids did this really annoying thing this summer.

They got bigger.

She insists on turning 2 in like 2 weeks.

This guy even had the nerve to start First Grade.

Here we are. Navigating this new Public School chapter and enjoying our little family bubble.

I do hope to make a more regular appearance.

Until next time…
