Why do foundations now have to have a name with 10 words in it??? The new Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation is definitely no exception! I picked this up in the shade 5W1 Bronze to test out. As a new addition to the Double Wear line, it is supposed to give a lightweight but long lasting coverage. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you will know that this sounds right up my alley! I tested this out for you in the video below, so make sure to watch that. If you are short on time and want to quickly know what I thought of the foundation, check out my pros and cons below.
I love doing Favorites videos, so I’m glad that I got a chance to do one this month. If you’re interested, check it out below. Beware: in this video, I am quite chatty! For a full product listing, click “Continue Reading”. Enjoy!
Hi friends! I’ve missed you all! If you follow me on any social media then you probably know that we welcomed a sweet baby girl into the world last month! Miss Chloe Jayde Philyaw was born on May 1st at 4:11am weighing in at 4 lbs 11 oz. We are so thankful that she is here and she is healthy!
Prior to giving birth, I filmed a tour of her nursery, but I just got around to finally editing the footage. I love the way her room turned out; girly, but not overdone (in my humble opinion). Not to mention I’m proud of myself for being a bit more frugal this time around and still being very happy with the final result. Check out the tour video below if you would like to take a peek inside of her room!

Thanks for the constant support and well wishes!
So I know this post has absolutely NOTHING to do with beauty, but it is something that I wanted to share with you all. For those of you who know me personally, I’m sure you already know about this, but I hadn’t previously shared it on my blog or social media. My husband and I are now business owners! We recently opened our first location of Club Pilates. Our grand opening will be held this weekend, February 18th & 19th. If you live in the Tampa Bay area, make sure to book a free demo session so you can check us out! Also if you are wondering, yes I have been doing pilates while pregnant and it has really helped with the back and leg pains that I was having. I take classes with everyone else and the teachers modify the exercises based on what I feel comfortable with and what is safe during pregnancy!
So, if you are in the area, I would love to see you at the Grand Opening! You can book your free session by emailing us at email@example.com or calling us at 813-773-3880! Spots are filling up quickly, so book today!
I’ve been keeping a secret……I’m pregnant! Yep, you read that right! My husband and I are thrilled to be expecting our second child in May 2017! And guess what else????
It’s a girl!!!
We are so excited to embark on this journey of being parents to multiple children! My oldest child, Noah, is now 19 months old and is as active as ever! So I have to admit that I’m a little worried about how I’m going to handle 2 young kids, but I’m sure we will quickly get into the swing of things once our baby girl is here. Children require so much time and effort, but are the greatest blessing!
I’ve been decluttering my makeup collection so I recently just added quite a few items to my Blog Sale page. Check it out!
