Helping Your Child Process Emotions Through Journaling

Today we are looking at how we can help our children start journaling.  Journaling is a great way to process all of those emotions and feelings that we are experiencing this Global Pandemic.  It is also a great way to capture those wonderful moments that we want to remember.  my two most favorite journals that Daisy and I use together are The Loom Journal and the Write The Word Journal, both of which are guided.   Pick something that is age appropriate and that has guided subject matter that your child is interested in.

Tips to help get your child started:

  1. Remember that it doesn't have to be perfect!  That goes for you too!  Make a mess, draw pictures, scribble!  All of these help to put our emotions out on the paper so we can start to process.  Many of the younger children will use pictures or inventive spelling to show what they are thinking about.
  2. Make journaling a habit.  This could be a weekly habit, or a...

How To Use Planning to Relieve Overwhelm

Today I had the honor of sharing one of my passions on Indy Style (insert heart eyes emoji). 

I have always loved planning, and it has been especially useful in this season of life.  We have so many activities going on inside of our home,  it can be quite a task to orchestrate each piece. But, I find that is true with many seasons of life.

I remember the first time that I bought a paper planner.  I was in high school, and had just taken the first of many personality tests.  One of the negative traits of my personality from that specific test was that I would have many wonderful ideas, but that I would accomplish nothing, unless I began to write down the ideas and PLAN.  I read that, grabbed my keys and headed straight to the mall to pick out the perfect planner.  I used that planner for a few years, and then stumbled across all of the wonder that was the Franklin Covey planning system.  I took the course, read the books,...

3 Steps to Remove a Gel Manicure in 20 minutes

3 Steps to Remove a Gel Manicure in 20 Minutes

With quarantine in effect, it has been a few weeks since any of us has been able to get to a nail salon.  If you were like me, and using gel manicures you know that they can be a pain to remove at the salon let alone trying to tackle it at home.   I have had to use this 3 step method several times in the past when I haven't had time to make it to the salon, and it works wonders!

First here are the items that you will need-

  • A Nail File
  • Cotton Pads or Cotton Balls (I've used paper towel in a pinch)
  • Aluminum Foil cut into 4" x 4" sections
  • Nail Polish Remover
  • A cuticle scraper or the blunt end of a set of tweezers

This is a pretty quick at home removal, so keep in mind that you can remove one hand full of polish at a time, if you need to have access to one of your hands for another activity.  Here are the steps:

  1. File the face of each of your nails to break through the shiny top coat of polish.  Make sure to get around...

5 Ways to Make Your Easter Special This Year PLUS 6 DIY Easter Basket Fillers

5 Ways to Make Your Easter Special This Year PLUS 6 DIY Easter Basket Fillers

It goes without saying that this is an Easter that we will never forget.  But aside from the memories of the time that we are currently living in, how do we still make this Easter an incredibly special experience?  I took a few of my favorite details from the past few Easter Celebrations and modernized them to fit our lifestyles today. 

  1. Get Dressed Up!  Go ahead and put on your Sunday best, break out the white shoes, and spring dresses.  This will help you to feel like a Million Bucks, which will make you and your family feel special.
  2. Watch an online Easter service.  If you like the tradition of taking communion, have some juice and either bread or crackers handy.  There are many different local churches that have shifted to online services, but if the church that you attend does not provide a service, it is ok to check out another church.
  3. Take your...

Heal Cracked Hands With This Easy Overnight Treatment

Today we are talking about those rough chapped hands that many of us are experiencing right now.

Even if you were an avid hand washer leading into this current season of life, chances are that you are washing your hands even more frequently than before.  All of this hand washing is great to rid ourselves of potentially harmful germs, but the downside is the loss of moisture.  When our skin starts to lose that much needed moisture to stay healthy, it starts to breaks down.  This is when we start to experience roughness that can quickly snowball into cracks and breaks within the skin.  So how do we take care of our skin, once it has started to breakdown?

The first idea that many have, is to not wash our hands as frequently, and I can honestly not recommend that as an option right now.  Keep washing your hands, as frequently as you need to during the day.  We are going to focus on the best time to heal our skin, which is overnight.  Our cellular...

Letters To My Daughter - Hope

To My Daughter,

I want to show you that I have hope, because I want you to know what it is like to have hope amidst darkness.

I want to show you that it is okay to be hopeful, and that being hopeful nearly always results in a positive outcome.  I want to show you how to hope so that you will naturally have hope as your default mode of operation, instead of worry. The past few weeks we have been in a happy little bubble of hope, and it is my goal that you will be able to look back on this time as an adult, and remember that hope, peace, faith and love were at the center of this experience. We aren’t keeping you 100% completely sheltered, you know that things are quite a bit different in our lives right now. You know that there is a virus, and we have encouraged you to ask questions. We encourage your questions, because we know that this is hard to process as an adult, and even harder to process as a 6 year old, whose life has changed so much in the past 13 days.

Letters to my Daughter - Beauty

Uncategorized Feb 20, 2020

To My Daughter,

 

I want to show you the confidence I have in my own beauty, in the hopes that you will be able to identify the beauty in yourself.

I want you to see that I am no longer hesitant to look in the mirror.  At some point I want to be vulnerable enough to share the trials that I have been through for me to see how truly beautiful that I am today.  I want you to know this process, because at some point you may need to overcome the same demons.  At some point, you may need to encourage a friend that believes that she has too many freckles to be beautiful, or too many scars to be worthy.

I want you to see the clients that I work with both on television, and meet them in person. I want you to know the difference between the two. I want you to know that these are the same people, both in real life, and on camera.  I want you to see that they have value with or without makeup, with or without pretty clothes. I want you to see that their message is...

My 4 Favorite Eye Creams that You Can Not Buy In a Store

As a makeup artist, I rely heavily on the tools that I have in my kit to create the best possible outcome for my clients.  Whether that be a television show, photo shoot, or speaking engagement.  Each set of eyes is different, and each person’s goals are different, so I need a variety of tools to achieve a variety of goals on hand.  My top 4 favorite eye creams are 4 specific tools.

Arbonne-RE9 Advanced Lifting and Contouring Eye Cream
