The Beauty Diaries: Maybelline Eye Studio Graphic Master


Besides the E.L.F. Liquid Eye Liner, the Maybelline Master Graphic Liquid Liner is my favorite liquid felt eye liner. If you're not good with using liquid eye liner, you'll want to give this a try. It's bold and easy to apply. The flat angled tip makes it easy to create a winged look. Surprisingly, I was browsing through the comments about the products on Maybelline.com and some people weren't that happy with it. The only problem I could point out is smudging, but to solve this I first apply eye shadow primer to my lids. After that no smudging problems. Have you tried Maybelline's Master Graphic liner? What do you think?

Rockport Challenge: #PoweredByRockport


When I have a day off from running around and attending events, sometimes I like to take my son to the park and let him release some energy. Since the weather has been so up and down lately, it's best to get out and enjoy it while you have the chance. This day was also a great day to wear my Rockport  Total Motion Bow Driving Mocs. I'm a huge fan of the Total Motion technology because of its complete flexibility. This, of course, makes them very comfortable and easy to get around in.

Naturally Hydrated


As the weather warms up, I look forward to getting outside and running again. So, of course staying properly hydrated is essential. When I first heard about drinking alkaline water, I was a little curious. We all need to drink more water, but what are the benefits of Alkaline water? 1907 Water helps balance the acidity levels in your body which are caused by stress and can lead to poor sleep or a poor diet. Since the water is naturally alkaline and bottled at the source in New Zealand, it has a lower mineral content and a smoother taste. The next time you pick up a bottle of water at your grocery store, look for 1907 Water and taste the difference.

The Beauty Diaries: The Body Shop


Part moisturizer, part primer, the Wonderblur from The Body Shop is my new favorite beauty product! The velvety, smooth texture feels amazing on my skin and keeps it hydrated all day. I've tried other products before that claim to blur your pores and give you a flawless appearance, but this one tops them all. So much so that lately, I've been leaving the house foundation-free. Just a small amount is all you need for a beautiful, flawless finish.

The Beauty Diaries: Mani Monday

Over the last few weeks life has been a little hectic for me, leaving me not much time to paint my nails. In the past, I've had great success with the Sally Hanson Quick Gel manicures, but I wanted to try something that didn't require using a UV light. I found two different options: Jamberry Nails and Incoco Nail Polish Appliques. Who lasted longer??? Keep reading to find out.
