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.

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...

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)

  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...
