I am fairly minimalistic when it comes to make up. I don't use make up daily, and often when I do use some it's lip gloss and mascara. But I love having a selection of make up products I trust, that we easy to use and that I know will look good.
Skin care (body).
My skin is super Important to me, and two pregnancies in 2 years have not made it easier to care for my skin. I love these products and use most of them daily.
Here are a few other great Desert Essence body lotion scents scents.
Kawaii : (Pocketed diapers) ,We have around 10 of the kawaii diapers. .I love their patterns, the fact that you can choose your insert material (we prefer charcoal), and their price. We have used them for roughly 14 months and they have held up pretty well. The last week I had a snap come of, and have 2 diapers with a little tear in them. But my husband and I agree we are still overall very happy with our kawaii diapers. They also still manage to fit our 97% toddler better than other brands. This is probably my favorite of their prints.
Charlie banana : (pocketed diapers). We have 12 charlie banana diapers, they seem to be very sturdy material, and have held up pretty well. They are adjustable in size, although it's not the easiest to do, it's been nice that they can grow with our baby. Lately we have been finding them to get a little to snug on our chubby toddler and that has caused a few compression leaks here and there.
Bum genius :(All-in-1 diapers). When our daughter was very young, she was super skinny and these were the best fit, they actually fit her long thin legs, but as she grew into a more chunky baby we soon had to stop using them and around 4-6 months she couldn't fit them at all. Other than sizing issue, great quality, and we plan on using the ones we have for our next baby as long as they fit. I also do love the ease of all in ones.
Fuzzibunz. (pocketed diapers). We have recently purchased these as they are for babies up to 40lbs. They fit my daughter great. The only complain I have is they only come with one insert and at least for my little one that seems to not always be enough. We have now purchased extra insert and hope that it will help as they are such a great fit for her.
Thirsties. (All-in-1 diapers). This was another brand I tried mainly because they fit bigger babies. The fit is great, and doesn't leave any marks. We have had a few leaks, but we are planning to also get another insert. Again I totally love the ease of all in ones and not having to take the time to stuff diapers.
Over the next few weeks I will cover most of my favorite beauty products.
I have chosen to do separate it into 4 sections - Face, body, make up and hair.
Skin care (face)
I love discovering new charities and seeing what amazing work they are doing in people's lives, but I have a few I just keep going back to giving to.
1. St. Jude's children's hospitals.
Because.. children.. as a mom I cry every time I even think of my baby being sick. So supporting them is something very near and dear to my heart.
2 .Voice of the martyrs.
Helping prosecuted Christians around the world. Helping people imprisoned for their faith and helping their families. This charity always amazes me with their hard and dedicated work. They do and share so much.
3.Juvenile diabetes research foundation
Not a cause that has been super important to me in the past, but since my husband is diabetic and has been since he was very young, I have learned a lot about this disease, and even though it's a disease you can manage, it's hard and it's hard to have a spouse with it and it posses several challenges for us as a family. I can't imagine what it's like to have a little one with it.
I have mainly donated to them around Christmas time, when they do their shoe box - operation Christmas child and I love it. We have both done filling our own shoe box and filling out shoe boxes online. When our kids are older I really want to focus more on doing the shoe boxes ourselves and teaching our kids to help others. But this past Christmas when time got away from us it was super nice to have the "create online option".
Faithbox isn't something I'm going to call my favorite charity since I have only donated and tried it once. But I think it's a neat idea, so I do want to mention them.
It's a monthly subscription that sends you some different faith based items. I got a devotion that I still like to look in. Not only do you get a few things to help your walk with Jesus.. but each purchase feeds a child 3 meals.
What are your favorite charities?
After months and months of planning I finally got around to update and revamp my site.
I have added new sections and deleted a lot of the old.
Over the next few weeks I hope to add several more links and updates to my new set up.
I also have several blog posts and other stuff I am getting ready to share.
I can't wait to share it with you all.
I would love to hear feed back or any wishes what to feature on the blog.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
