Hmmm…this hasn’t happened to me. Maybe I don’t put a huge ton on my finger? Just one little swipe on the product, then one swipe on the eyelid. Maybe you’re using too much?

You might have heard me mention that I was reading The Interestings, but it wasn’t because I loved it. :)

I don’t use an eyelash curler because my eyes are really sensitive. When I try to use one, my eyes water for an hour afterward. So I skip, but I do have naturally pretty long lashes that curl enough.

Isn’t good sleep so life-giving? In many ways. I wouldn’t have believed how life-changing sleep could be to my family and relationships. It seems too simple. But it’s true. Happy anniversary to you, too!

I have quite a few, I should probably do a post on just that. My favorite drugstore is the Aveeno Positively Radiant, and my favorite high end is Revive.

Oooooh, I’ll take that suggestion since I’ve seen your awesome makeup skills. I like Bobbi Brown products, but they never seem to make my TOP favorites, you know? Will check out the concealer, though, as that’s rapidly the most important product in my arsenal.

As much as I love to dabble with makeup, I usually only spend about 5 minutes on it each morning. I just don’t have the patience or inclination to do much more than that, considering I spend most of the day at home. The UPS man and the kids’ preschool teacher are fairly well robbed of seeing a daily red lip. But because I love seeing how other women put on their weekday face, and because it’s fun to talk about makeup, there are links to a few friends at the bottom with their own posts and videos. Now, I... Continue reading

That all sounds phenomenally tough, Jackie. I’m so sorry you and your family are going through this. Our family has also been through deployment, so that pain I do know well. All the best to you.

Thank you for that, Deborah.

Seven years ago today we stood under a drippy Savannah tree, encircled by our siblings, parents, and dearest friends, and vowed the rest of our lives to one another. Church bells rang as we were pronounced one, and a southern gospel choir broke into song when we clenched hands and returned up the grassy aisle. It took The Gorilla half a lifetime to get married. Our friendship then relationship was a long one. I do not recommend this to anyone - anyone - but almost all of the rocks in our road fell away when we got engaged. When I... Continue reading

I didn’t see the movie because of my distaste for the book. But that is interesting.

Yes the code for Lindsay Letters 15% off is FRESHFALL. Just updated the post, too. Thanks for pointing that out!

Whoops! Sorry about that. I fixed it.

Ha! This made me laugh. Although I can see a 16yo liking Into the Wild. My jaded adult self just found it ludicrous.

Standards and Practices feather skinny jeans // Analeigh rose gold sandals via ShoeMint // JCrew linen tank I'm not gonna lie, the kids being in school part of the day has been pretty much life-changing. I had no idea how much I was multi-tasking to the detriment of everything. Now I'm able to work and be productive in the morning, then be with the kids in the afternoon. I'm so much more fully present in each place. Every mother I've ever known has talked about seasons of life, how they change, how they change you. I just keep learning this... Continue reading

This post was brought to you by the makers of Puffs® facial tissues. I received compensation to write this post through the Puffs® SoftPack™ program. All opinions expressed are my own. Let's talk about what you carry in the car or in your bag for beauty touch-ups. Since LA has serious car culture, I tend to keep a little bag of beauty right in my glove compartment, instead of using up all that space in my purse. I have a cute little pouch with powder foundation, lipstick, a hairbrush, pain reliever, and a bit of cash. (The former is for... Continue reading

Last week I got home from five days away and promptly had a total freakout over the disorganized state of my house, To Do's, pantry, email, closet, life. Every single one of these items had been festering for long before I took the trip, but coming home to it (and gaining a few hours each day now that school has started) gave me a fresh perspective on all that I had let slip. Which was a lot. A lot had slipped. Our life is a regular slip-n-slide. Now let me be clear about a few things. First of all, I... Continue reading

Last weekend I flew back to the lake house and hosted a large group of girlfriends for four days. This has become an annual getaway, and while hosting such a large group isn't exactly restful, the time spent together has become really important. Even though a solid friendship still requires a fair amount of work, technology has made long distance friends feel like they're right beside you. Social media, texting, emails, voxer, we've never had more ways to stay in touch. But nothing accounts for a good friend literally sitting beside you. Face time covers a lot of things. Promise....

It wasn’t, really! The top was fitted, so maybe that would be if you wore it in high temps, but the A-line was loose and breezy, if you catch my drift. It might be more of a problem for the fitted pieces.

This post is not paid for or perked in any way. Just sharing a fab find. It sort of seems like a strange trend, but I started seeing patterned dresses made out of neoprene (sort of like wetsuit material), so I decided to try one for an event last month. The most interesting ones out there right now are by Clover Canyon. It's like wearing a painting. I got mine from Rent the Runway, and it was comfortable and flattering. The thick material made it body conscious, but also forgiving, especially with the busy pattern. Not all of Clover Canyon's... Continue reading

I read The Goldfinch earlier in the year and have mixed feelings about it. But I’m still thinking about the story, so clearly it had an impact.

I love non-fiction, too! I’ve seen the Power of Habit around, but haven’t picked it up yet. I think I might really like it in relation to my monthly challenges this year.

Ooooh, that does look interesting. Just added it to my GoodReads shelf.

People keep talking to me about Rainbow Rowell’s books, but I haven’t read one yet. My To Read list is so long!
