Mommy fashion & beauty essentials

Mommy fashion & beauty essentials

(Please note: I received the Links of Necklace for free, but I have not been paid to write this post.  All opinions below reflect my own true thoughts and opinions.)   If you’re a fellow mommy, your clothes are probably also covered in unidentifiable stains most of the time, and you most likely don’t have the luxury of getting dressed to the nines every single day. I’ve said it time and time again, but I still think that it is important for us to take care of ourselves and look polished- mostly because it makes us feel...

Things I’m loving lately

Things I’m loving lately

First order of business… I am still pregnant.  This baby girl is awfully cozy in my belly!  Like I keep on saying though, I know that she’ll come out when she is good and ready. And now onto all of the things I’ve been loving lately… I actually had a really difficult time narrowing down the list this month.  I’ve been using some great products!     1.  IT Cosmetics CC Cream with SPF 50+ You might recall that I mentioned this product in my 5-minute face routine, but I just had to bring it up again...

50 (more) uses for coconut oil

50 (more) uses for coconut oil

You may have noticed that when I like something, I get really enthusiastic about it and rave on and on…and on about it.  I’ve always been the sort of person who gets ridiculously excited when they open presents, and I’d probably make one heck of a QVC hostess. Most of the time, I continue to like and enjoy the items that I share here, but I do often move on and try new things. However, there are a few things/topics/people that I’ve written about to death on this blog throughout the past 3 (plus) years, such as salmon,...

{Updated} 5-minute face routine

{Updated} 5-minute face routine

Despite having a little one, getting ready in the morning has always been a pretty simple process.  We store a basket of waterproof toys in our bathroom to keep Michael occupied, and that always seemed to work really well.  When I’d turn on my hair dryer, he’d sit by my feet looking up at me with wonder.   He was even mesmerized by watching me use my eyelash curler. Birds weren’t landing on our windowsill singing morning tunes to us or anything like a scene right out of Cinderella, but the whole process was pretty close...

My all-time favorite natural beauty products

My all-time favorite natural beauty products

Over the course of The Grass Skirt’s 3-year existence, I’ve blogged a lot about beauty products that I love- especially ones that are on the more natural side.  While I’ve moved on from some of them (I suffer from beauty product ADD in a major way), there are some that have remained constant favorites.  In other words, I might possibly shed a few tears if any of these products were discontinued. Sadly, I am only half-kidding, (Please note: Some of these products are not 100% all natural.  To see how they rank as far as...

Things I didn’t share Friday (2/28)

Things I didn’t share Friday (2/28)

  1.  The reality that tomorrow is the 1st of March, and I’ll be delivering another baby in roughly 5 weeks is starting to hit me.  On one hand, I feel like I’ve been pregnant for two solid years, and on the other, I cannot believe how fast this second pregnancy is going!  I still have a lot of things to do to prepare, but I am trying not to freak out (at least not too much anyway). 2.  Even though I am practically BFFs with Jessica Robertson, MT and I agreed that it was finally time to drop Duck Dynasty from our DVR...
