Eczema Relief with Tubby Todd

Since Hudson was born, eczema has always been an challenge. He would get flare ups occasionally, in which his pediatrician prescribed different creams, but they never seemed to help.

When the weather started to get cool in late Fall, eczema became a constant in his everyday life. His sweet little cheeks would get so dry and rosey. I became determined to find relief for him. I researched, read reviews, and tried just about everything I could find, without change.

Finally, I stumbled across Tubby Todd. I loved the story behind it, where the creator, in a similar position, tried everything to find relief for her family’s eczema, without success, so she created her own products, that worked. After learning they were made with 100% natural ingredients, I was sold. We added the Hair & Body Wash, Dream Cream, and All Over Ointment to his morning and evening routine and within just a few days, Hudson woke up without any signs of rosiness and the softest skin! It’s been a month and I couldn’t rave about their amazing products enough! Use this link to receive 10% off your first order!

3D Fiber Lash Mascara

Mascara may be my favorite beauty product. It’s such a great beauty enhancer and it instantly opens up your eyes, making them look more awake. I love my go to mascaras, Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll and Shocking, but when I started seeing results from 3D Fiber Lashes, I had to see what they were about. My only reservation was what they were made of, and what kind of product I would be putting on my eyes. When I found out it was an all natural product, made of green tea extract fibers, I was sold.

I ordered the mascara from a virtual party and couldn’t wait to give it a test drive. My lashes are naturally long to begin with, but this transformed my already lengthy lashes into much fuller statement lashes.

At first swipe, I sent a picture to my friends and family and everyone wanted to know what kind of mascara I was using, so I decided to host a Younique virtual party. My virtual party is open for 10 days, if you’re ready to jump on the band wagon, get yours here. They’re great for everyday, a night out, holiday parties or stocking stuffers.

Strawberry Mint Lemonade

Fresh flowers and warm sunny days should only be accompanied by light refreshing beverages. Water and tea are my usual vices, but since stumbling upon a light organic lemonade (stevia based, instead of sugar) it’s been a nice occasional change. I’m not a fan of syrups or anything artificial, so for our first cookout/bonfire last weekend, I poured a pitcher of the light lemonade and placed fresh strawberries and mint in the attached infuser. After infusing for a few hours, it had a perfect slightly sweet refreshing taste. Slice up strawberries and mint for garnish and it makes a great party refresher.

Winter weather doesn’t reap the best benefits for my skin, so switching up my skincare routine is essential. Keeping skin exfoliated, and well-hydrated is key to a polished Winter glow. Dry brushing with a body brush before showering has countless benefits, including increasing circulation and sloughing away dead skin cells. Using an exfoliating body scrub twice a week, as well as a hydrating body wash will eliminate dryness. Seal in the moisture by applying a body oil, and/or a baby oil gel on damp skin (I like using both.) To add a hint of subtle color, use a buildable self-tanning lotion. The Q-10 properties in this one give skin added moisture.

Barely There

In need of a makeup refresher, I headed over to the bareMinerals booth at the IFB Conference. After trying out a couple of new products, I was on my way with a gift bag, filled with their newest foundation, precision brush, concealer and concealer brush.

While getting ready for Lucky FABB the next morning, I decided to test out the READY SPF 20 Foundation. To my surprise it was incredibly lightweight, yet had great coverage. Unfortunately I wasn’t matched the correct color, so with the help of bronzer, I was able to achieve the color of my skin tone. I later ordered my correct color from Nordstrom.  Their color palette made it easy to find the true match. Choose a color that appears darker than your skin tone. I was originally matched with Medium Beige, but Medium Tan was my best match.


I love the idea of wearing something lightweight, that doesn’t feel like a mask. The Precision Face angled brush makes it really simple apply the foundation evenly, even around hard to reach spots like around the nose. It looks completely natural, and after a long day at Lucky FABB, no touch-up needed. I’ve been using it ever since!
