Eyebrow Tutorial | Shape and Fill

20131017-210350.jpg

Raise those eyebrows ladies, it’s time to get those caterpillars in check!
While it took me a lifetime to get mine correct I’m here to pass my trial and error wisdom along to you!
So here’s what you will need:
Eyebrow pencil (or powder, whichever you prefer)
Eyebrow gel
Eyebrow spoolie
Brow bone highlighter
Cream concealer

Now onto the basics!
My simple rules are to follow your natural brow shape, use your nose and your eyes as your guidelines, use short lines and strokes to keep them natural looking, and use a shade match to your roots.

Now that you have the ground rules down its time to jump into it, check out the below video for my full rundown. Remember, practice makes perfect!
Good luck!

Annie’s Macaroni and Cheese | Mom Seal of Approval

20131009-191956.jpg

In a world filled with sugar and lollipops and with the childhood obesity epidemic it is more important than every to feed our kids good wholesome foods, which brings me to my son. My son David is four and very picky! We have always tried our best to feed him well, we stick to fresh ingredients and meals filled with whole grains and veggies and try to restrict eating out to only a few times a year! The older my son gets the harder it is to keep finding creative ways to introduce healthy foods to him because…well..he is just too wise to our tricky ways! So when influesnter sent me the Annie’s organic mac and cheese to try out the first person I thought of was David.
While I do cook for my family just about every night, there are some nights that are just too hectic and I have to throw something together for him while trying to keep in mind the health factor. I was sent the Annie’s microwaveable mac and cheese in the while cheddar flavor and when one of those busy nights rolled around I knew just what to feed him. While I’m easier to please I knew that the best judge would be him. I was a little nervous about this however because these microwaveable cups are comparable to the Kraft easy macs but my mind was put at ease when I read the ingredients. Organic made pasta and real cheese! Perfect!
So I served David his Annie’s Mac and cheese and instantly got his seal of approval. He literally ate the whole thing up in the matter of minutes (also letting my husband and I take a bite!) and I was impressed. It didn’t taste like how I imagined microwaveable mac and cheese would, it was creamy and didn’t taste like overly processed cheese, so it gets the moms seal of approval too.
While I will continue to make homemade wholesome meals it is nice to have another option for those lazy nights, an option that I feel less guilty about and that my pickiest of eaters loves too!

Happy Eating!
Kate

Dr.Scholls For Her Comfort Insoles | A Life (and foot) Saver

20131005-200039.jpg
I can tell by the clusters of orange and yellow on the ground that the chill of fall is officially in full swing. While this might bring some sadness to some people, to me it brings great joy in knowing that I can now crack open my closet and unleash all my shoes again!
Fall not to me not only means comfy sweaters and cardigans but also a great arrays foot candy like booties,wedges,boots,oxford flats,sneakers and any more! While I appreciate the much needed variety to my footwear, fall also means sore feet! I can no longer get away with wearing comfy flip flops and sandals ,or run around barefoot anymore, so my feet get really sore! But beauty is pain..right??
I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be! I use to just suck it up when it came to foot pain and I would cram my already throbbing toes in to my studded booties and go on with my day, but the older I get the harder it is to ignore the pain and even recover from it. My last night out I swear my feet hurt so bad that my toes were numb for a week…totally not healthy.
That’s why my newest box from Influenster could not have come at a better time! Not only did I get lots of goodies to pamper myself with, but I also got a pair of the Dr.Scholls For Her comfort insoles to try on my tired feet. I never really thought of trying insoles out in my fall flats so I wanted to give them a good go so I could give you my honest verdict….and I love them!
They really helped to comfort my feet, my biggest problem is cushion. My fall shoes never seem to have enough comfort for me in the soles and that’s what leads to all of the foot and leg pain, and in one day I felt such a difference. My legs were not nearly as sore as they usually are and the bottoms of my feet did not get numb. Best part is I was able to spend a whole day out with the kids in some of my most fashionable shoes without any missteps.
So I am here to tell you girls, you do not have to suffer anymore! You no longer have to trade beauty for pain or make sacrifices on days out with the family by
by throwing on those grandma shoes…you heard it here first!
So thank you Dr.Scholls and Influenster for letting me try these out and I’m happy to spread the word!

Lots of love!
Kate
