Mini-Makeover: My 1 Week Beauty Boost Items

Feel like you need a boost in your beauty routine?? 
These are the items I use to give 
myself a little mini makeover! 
From one busy budgeting mama to another..
these are my favorites!

1. Crest 3D White Whitestrips Vivid Teeth Whitening System
30 minutes a day…I would put them on when I got out of the shower..and they worked their magic while I did my hair and makeup! Helped me actually remember to use
 them when I had a routine like that!

2. Jergens Natural Glow Express

I’m a very very pale mama..always have been. 
I once was asked by a flight attendant if I worked as Snow White at Disney World………awesome.
But I want color in a healthy way! I’ll of course get some sun being out and about but this product gave me a boost without having to go to a tanning salon or lay out..both not very good for you skin! So it was a healthy alternative. my skin felt amazing! and ben kept joking that i smelled like the beach(not in a bad way!)…made us excited for summer. haha.

3. Put DOWN the tweezers!
They say fuller eyebrows make you look younger.. 

and I could TOTALLY tell a difference in myself when I stop tweezing
 as much and let them fill in a bit. I still kept a shape..
but went through a week of “ah i hate my eyebrows” to get better results.

4. Spearmint Lip Smack – Green Bubble Gorgeous

I have always had chapped lips. But I never found a chapstick that I liked…they always tasted bad or were too sticky. But when my friend Krystal gave me one of her products while we were working on a Baby Shower together…I started using it and immediately saw results! Tastes great..and leaves my lips feeling refreshed and kissable. :)

5. Sally Hansen Mega Shine Nail Treatment
I just don’t have the time to go get a mani-pedi. And i don’t have the money either.
It’s just not practical for me..especially since I chip them immediately anyways!!
So I was thrilledddd when I found a color (here) and top coat that looked just as amazing and I could do myself. They say the first thing people notice about you is your face..and then your hands.. I have no clue who said that…but that’s what I was told..haha. 
All I can say is when I have my nails done, I feel more pulled together! 
even if I’m covered in baby goop.

Two words…miracle. worker. 
I have really dry hair. It used to be curly.. still is a little but with every pregnancy my hair texture has changed! But the dryness has never left me…:) You only need a drop for it to make a it lasts a long time. this is a musttt if you have dry hair.

And of course the things that we all know we should do…
eat healthy..exercise…and drink lots of water!
I’m horrible about drinking water but am making an effort… and i’m trying to refuel my body with healthy snacks because i’m alwayssss hungry from nursing.
I just started doing the Insanity Workout as well. Not their nutrution plan but just the workouts.
It is kicking my butt. but i’m doing it with my hubby and it’s given me a boost of energy!
plus I love it because you don’t need any other equipment. I’ve even learned how to do baby talk to sienna while doing the workout. haha.

I have my hands full with these girls, so quick
and easy beauty boosts are what I need!
My little sweeties/stinkers…they’re totally worth the dark under-eye
 circles from not sleeping. haha. ;)
Sienna is teething..and Sophie is 2 1/2. enough said right?

Here’s where I shared
my basic beauty routine!

Anyone else have some beauty boost secrets??

    I agree with the eyebrows. It looks great especially those with dark hair. Mani- Pedi’s are also fun to do on your own in the summer because you can change the colors anytime you want to match your bathing suit that day!:)
    Your girls are SO cute!! They look so fun and playful!

    I love these! I have such dry hair that I am going to check out the Frizz Ease serum. Strangely, my hair turned curlier after I had a baby. It’s been driving me nuts ever since and the dryness never left me either.
