Do you ever spend hours preparing for an activity- maybe the park or beach- getting everyones bathing suits clean, their tiny hats and gel shoes cleaned then, only as you are about to walk out the door, you take a glance in the mirror only to be disappointed? I get it, you have no time. Its hard to prioritize yourself when your three year old wants the sparkle sandals that hurt her feet.
But here's what I have learned after three kids- when I feel good about myself- I am a better mom. I’m more willing to jump into activities, take pictures, and have a great time when I’m not concerned about my lack of mascara.
Over the years, I have experimented a lot with different tricks and tools to help me feel put together.

Thrive Causmetics Liquid Lash Extension Mascara Brynn (HERE)
I love this mascara, deeply. I love it so much that I get a new one delivered every 2 months so I never run out. Seriously! It won’t clump, flake or smudge- even during my workout classes where I am pouring sweat (gross, but true).
Brown Alchemist Amenity Kit (HERE)
This kit includes everything to keep you feeling moisturized and fresh! My skin always dries out in the summer and this kit saved me last year. It comes with lip balm, hand cream, and facial hydra-repair day cream. All amazing. All super conditioning without that gross greasy feeling. I might buy one for my gym bag and one for my diaper bag…
St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mouse (HERE)
Here’s the deal- if you want to try out self-tanning, you need this mouse! I am naturally very pale, and I cannot tan very well naturally (I burn like a tomato). I have tried out every type of self-tanner and St. Tropez takes the cake! It isn’t sticky, doesn’t smell, and gives you natural healthy-looking skin. If you see me any time of the year, chances are I have this on.
R+Co Spiritualized Dry Shampoo Mist (HERE)
Who has time to wash their hair anymore? Dry Shampoo for the win and R+Co makes the best one- in my humble opinion.
Honest Beauty tinted Lip Balm (HERE)
This Lip Balm is so great Mama! I mean, I am obsessed. I have summer melon in every bag and car, so I am always prepared. Its vegan with 6+ hours of moisture. It takes like 5 seconds to swipe on and you are good to go.
