Patience to Wear the Necklace

Molly summer 2017-Molly Fall 2017-0084.jpg

I know the stereo type of someone into makeup would be that I sit for hours in front of the mirror. Well, no I don’t. I’m pretty quick most days-well you kind of have to learn how to do that as a mom (though in high school I definitely spent a long time getting ready). In fact, I’m a pretty expedient person now a days when it comes to getting things done or wanting to see results. It’s like when I check my abs a few days after working out for the first time, hoping to see something other than my post-baby pooch. I’m hoping I’m not the only one that does this!

Swimsuit Insecurites

I feel like I do this every spring. I start thinking about summer and swim suit season and think to myself, “I’m going to work out so that by summer I have at least a four pack and look all toned in a swim suit.” But every summer rolls by and this never becomes a reality.  I end up sticking with my one pack (i.e. my tummy) and “chicken arms” (my term for my skinny arms). I can laugh at it as I write this, but I was reminded that summer is definitely a season, where insecurities about my body run a little deeper.  I think most women would agree.  Continue reading “Swimsuit Insecurites”

Before You Light that Sparkler

Hey Friends! Happy 4th of July weekend! I love this time of year-fireworks, good food…need I say more? I was in need of a quick outfit I could pull together for a get together I am going to this evening. So I pulled out a blue and white striped top and threw on my favorite red MAC lipstick. It’s a red-orange color which I love because it pairs well with an olive skin tone. Anyways, I was happy that I didn’t spend any money on my 4th outfit. Total win for me!

Mother’s Day for Single Moms feat. JES Designs


With Mother’s Day fast approaching, I think it’s common to hear or read encouraging words to mothers.  But I feel like there is a voice that needs to be heard, to be touched and that is the voice of the single mom.

Being a single mom is not something I’ve really talked about on my blog.  I am not divorced but have been separated from my husband for a few years.  Though I don’t feel fully equipped to share words that might inspire, might lift the spirits of these mom’s, I feel led to do so nonetheless.  I guess, who better to understand than someone else in the trenches of the single parent life?   Continue reading “Mother’s Day for Single Moms feat.
