  • Beauty Gift Ideas 2017

    I cannot believe the holidays are already around the corner! It’s almost Thanksgiving, and for some people, that is good enough reason to start unpacking the holiday decor. Guilty as charged! I haven’t had much opportunity to film anything since Harper was born, but I do have ample hours to write blog posts while the little one is feeding or sleeping. I promise, when I’m up to it, I’ll film some baby/birth related videos! For now, I wanted to share…

    How to Help Victims of Hurricane Harvey

    A word on the Houston Floods As a native and proud Houstonian, I’ve been through hurricanes and severe weather all of my life. But I’ve never seen the devastation, and overwhelming catastrophe that has been brought by Hurricane Harvey. Almost exactly 9 Years ago, Hurricane Ike brought HB and I closer together than we could have ever have imagined as we weathered out that storm together at the beginning of our fledgling relationship, and now, all these years later, catastrophic…

    Dreamwalking

    The bump is getting larger and it’s getting harder to feel stylish when you’re starting to waddle a little bit. I honestly don’t know how the pro fashion bloggers do it. I mean, most of them are super tall and stick-thin, of which I am neither, but I just generally feel so¬†slow and¬†encumbered (is that the right word?). Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy as a clam, but adjusting to a new body type that has emerged within 20 short…

    NARS PowerMatte Lip Pigments

    NARS are releasing a completely new product – ¬†a liquid lip that promises to be fully matte, lightweight, and comfortable to wear.

    Urban Decay Naked HEAT Swatches & Review

    URBAN DECAY dropped a bombshell on the beauty world not long ago by launching their newest “Naked” palette, part of the uber-popular Naked series of palettes, ironically, meant to be neutral or flesh-toned. It’s called the Urban Decay Naked HEAT palette, and it’s on fire. As the popularity of Naked 1 and 2 began to soar, however, the brand expanded the range to include much more than just flesh-toned pretties. Naked 3 was a rosey themed palette at the height…

    Baby Braly Gender Reveal

    We are so beyond over the moon to announce that baby Braly, coming November 2017, is a GIRL! HB definitely called it. For some reason I, along with most of our families, thought we were having a boy! Only a rare few believed it would be a girl! We are SO EXCITED. We’ve picked out a name that we’re 99% sure we’re going to stick with, but won’t reveal until the day she arrives. As my Pappa said, “PSS Co…

    Meet Leeloo

    We are so overjoyed and ecstatic to bring a sister for Gidget into the Braly fold. ¬†We searched shelters for nearly a year to find Gidget the perfect playmate and companion, with no success. ¬†But when we stumbled upon this little girl, we immediately scooped her up and she hasn’t left our laps since. ¬†She’s sweet, funny, rambunctious, very playful, and has about a 75% success rate for potty training on the puppy pads–which is pretty good considering her age!…

    My Umstead Spa Experience

    About a week ago I had the most amazing spa experience of my life. ¬†I haven’t been one much for facials or spa treatments in the past, mostly because I couldn’t bear to spend that much money on myself. ¬†But when I was treated to a very generous gift card to the Umstead Spa from my CRNA’s at my place of work for Christmas, I browsed the treatment menu for months trying to decide which experience I would indulge in.…
