Hello there and happy Monday! So many people dread Monday mornings. The weekend is over and it’s back to work. Now, I have a job that I truly do enjoy, however, it requires a wake-up time of 2:30 am. I work at a gym and I have to be there by 4:30 am. I love that I get off early but by the time I get home, I’m exhausted and trying to fit my duties as a wife and mother in before I have to go to bed. In an ideal world, I would get to bed by 7 so I can get a full night’s rest. It never happens. I’m lucky if I’m in bed by 9. I love what I do. The gym that I work for changes lives and teaches healthy habits that our clients can take with them for the rest of their lives. [Read more…] about Get to Know Your Authors: Siobhan’s Dream Job

I love to try different lipwear options. Growing up I started wearing Bonne Belle Lip Smacker . It came in different colors and flavors. The different flavors smelled delicious. They made you want to eat your chapstick. When I first started wearing lip balm, it was all my mother would allow me to wear. I wasn’t even allowed to wear lipgloss. Lip Smacker was so much fun to wear. My friends and I would bring our lip balm to school and see who had which flavor. It was fun and we thought we were cool.
Now that I am an adult, I can wear lip balm, lipgloss, or lipstick. Sometimes I wear a combination. I thought it would be fun to share my favorite types of lipwear with you and I would love for you to share yours with me, too! [Read more…] about Shop My Favorite Lipwear
My nail polish collection is seriously out of this world. I have every color for every occasion. At least, I feel like I do until I make my way to Sephora and find that OPI has released new colors. When I get my nails done, I tend to take my polish with me. I almost always have a color choice made up in my mind and I don’t want to take the risk of the salon not having my color. Plus, I have all of this nail polish at home. Why not use it, right?! I select my nail color based on the season or the holiday. [Read more…] about Shop My Favorite Nail Colors
