Baby Ballers

Our babies should get to be chic as well.  Well, I have a little boy so he gets to be a little baller!!

I try to keep my son as fabulous as I am, and often he is more!  Over this weekend, a couple things came to mind about how I am keeping him fresh.  

First, SOCKS SOCKS SOCKS!  No socks ever seem to stay on any babies feet.  Their precious feet are so chubby, it is hard to socks to stay on.  Well, I found a kind that will...crew socks.  I found a bunch of crew height socks at Target and they stay up great.  He has worn a couple of them multiple times between multiple washes and they are still staying up & on.  It is hard for him to pull them off and he sure tries believe you me.
Additionally my little man had a cold this weekend as well.  To keep his little nose in good condition, I used the flannel spit up ranges as a hanky.  These rags are awesome.  We have used them as spit up rages, hankies, and cuddle blankies.  They are great for everything!!

Make-up Like a Pro!

So I am definitely a big fat girl when it comes to make-up!!  

I buy make-up all the time so it often gets me buying cheap make-up because it is  Cheaper make-up often does take more work.

Here is what I do.  I was recently turned on my Wet n' Wile Icon Palettes.  These shadows are awesome.  If you haven't tried these I suggest that you do.  They are terrific.  Highly pigmented and the colors in each palette option are really good and make sense.   However, sometimes with these kinds of palettes and brands their shadows are very dusty and have a lot of fall out.  There is a very simple solution.

Only pack the shadow onto one side of the brush and then blend accordingly.  Seems kinda silly but this really works.  Give you brush a tap before you put it onto your face, but you really save yourself some heartache in fixing your foundation if you just pack one side of your brush.  Simple solution, but makes it so much easier!!

Gotta Build a Team

Hold your horses this one is going to be preachy!!!

In order to kill it in today's world you have to have a team.  There is not much going on, you have to build a team of people to really kick butt.  Here is a for example: get connected with a health insurance agent.  First and foremost, there are agents for everything.  They are experts in their specific field and they can be great tools.  Utilize them.  Recently when I connected with a heath insurance agent I saved $3k for the year on my premiums, stayed with the same providers, and have comparable out of pocket expenses.  It is crazy!!

The world with live in today is not the same world that our grandparents live in.  We have more intense contracts, more fine print, we have a multifaceted world that our grandparents just didn't have to deal with.  Our parents grew up in a time when they could get a summer job and pay for a new car.  We just aren't there any more.  Lawsuits, the government, and inflation have changed our world.  Not necessarily for the worse, it is just changed.  Many of those things provide more protections, but with those protections, there comes details.  Now when we multiply those protections and details across all areas of our lives today, we see we are no longer able to be experts in our own world.

So that is why I say, get a team.  Get a great primary care physician.  Preventative health care (preventative maintenance of all kinds) keeps anything in tip top shape and lasting longer without major repair.  Get a great personal insurance agent.  Bundle together your home, life, car etc. with one great insurance agent.  Get the best value for your money, not just the cheapest, but make sure you get a great deal.  You don't want to overpay $3,000.  Get a financial adviser.  They can help put a plan of action together to develop wealth.  To have something in 40 years.

Get a team!!  It is a rare person in today's world who has time after working a 10 hour day, coming home and making dinner, doing a couple chores, will then find time to gain an understanding about the healthcare industry.

Get an expert!!!

Product Review: E.L.F. Bronzier Blush Duo


I found another great from from E.L.F.  Like I have said before, they are very hit or miss.  But right now this product is a hit!!  

It is tones that would work for lots of skin tones.  A wonderful peaching gold tone and a terrific bronzy gold tone.  I actually use the bronzer to contour and it works great.  Plus...$3!!!  You can't beat that!!
