HOW TO DOCUMENT YOUR CHILDREN’S LIVES

HOW TO DOCUMENT YOUR CHILDREN’S LIVES

How to Documenting your children's lives

I have to admit. I’ve been lax when it comes to documenting my kids lives. Well… That’s kind of not completely the truth. I have a TON of pictures of Breanna when she was little, but I dropped the ball when it came to Abigail. Honestly, I think most second time parents do this, right?

Lately, I’ve gotten really intentional about taking more pictures of my girls. Most parents document the big moments like; school programs, the first day of school, and so on. For me,  I’ve found the best way is to document the little moments. The ones you might forget like; playing with their friends, doing chores, eating their favorite meals.
 
  This the day I gave my girls an eye shadow palette I had that I never used, but they thought it was the best day EVER and wanted to play in makeup with their friends.  This is a great “first” experience to document.

My best friend and her husband were having a date night, and went to a concert. Their little one spent the night at our house. These kids will grow up together, so I thought this would be a great night to document.

LORAC PRO Brow Pencil

So many people miss a step in that makeup process… Brows!  Before I really got into makeup that was a step I always skipped, and I know I’m not alone.

The most common question I hear is, ” What kind of brow products do I use?”

Honestly, if you chose the right product to fill them in, you can really get by with using one product. Like the LORAC PRO Brow Pencil! This pencil is great because not only is it at all-in- one product with a spoolie. It also helps to shape and manage hair, but it’s also a great formula that provides precisely defined eyebrows that stay on and in place all day!

How to study The Bible as a busy mom

How busy moms study The Bible

How to study The Bible as a busy mom

Studying the bible has always been a challenge of mine. Honestly, it’s kind of hard to read, right? I mean all of these Hebrew words aren’t easy to read let alone pronounce, so I find myself fixating in “the words” and not The Word.

Can I get an Amen? I’m just sayin

Well, that was all true until I found The Busy Mom Bible.

GOT A MINUTE? ONLY A MINUTE? This Bible is designed just for you. Throughout this Bible, you will find 52 one-minute Thought Starters that let you dip into God’s Word for a minute of refreshment. To go deeper, each of these Thought Starters is followed by an option for a five-minute Reflect and Pray or a ten-minute Study to help you learn even more about what God’s Word has to say to you today. Devotional thoughts are written specifically for you, the busy mom, and cover topics such as raising kids, marriage, emotions, and your identity in Christ.

The busy mom bible is broken down into 52 Thought Starters. These thought starters allow you to dive into 13 general topics.

I love this bible! It touches on topics that relate to the struggles I face daily as moms. For instance, one the really sticks out to me is the Your Relationships thought starter. It further reaches into Influence & Encouragement. It talks about how not everyone has had the benefit of being raised in a christian home and it talk about how The Lord calls on people to bring people to him. I LOVE THIS because I know this is one of the ways he’s working through me.

Honestly, I don’t read my bible everyday, but I try to worship somehow every day. And this bible makes it so easy to sit down for a minute or five minutes write your thoughts, fears, and your struggles and pray… Just pray! 

What are some of your favorite ways to study The Bible?

Review: MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA SMOKY EXTRAVAGANT MASCARA

Make up for ever aqua smoky extravagant mascara

Today I’m sharing my new favorite mascara, it’s the MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA SMOKY EXTRAVAGANT MASCARA. Let me start off by saying,  I’ve never been a fan of waterproof mascara. I have just never liked the formulation because I’m a fan of dry formulated mascara’s, and most waterproof mascara’s are a wet formula.

I can normally tell on the first application whether I’m going to like a mascara. There has only been a few occasions where the mascara turned more dry and my first impression of the products was wrong.

The reason I love the MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA SMOKY EXTRAVAGANT MASCARA is because it’s semi dry formula. It creates a very dramatic false-looking lashes that provides long-lasting old and keep my lashes curled all day. The wand is an “ergo-conic” wand that allows ultra- precise application that  distributes the exact amount of product to lift each lash individually to create both length and volume.

 

Key Points

  • It’s a dry formula
  • Doesn’t flake
  • Stays soft and subtle all day
  • Creates “feather-like” , false looking lashes
  • Easily removed with an oil based product

Price / Availability

This product can be purchased at Sephora for $24.00

 

Let me know, What are your favorite waterproof mascaras?
