Multi-tasking mommas use Ivory.

When I look at a 60-minute increment, a 30-minute increment, hand to God, I often think how many things can I accomplish in that time frame? It sounds a little insane but as a busy, working mom - efficiency is everything. But efficiency does not mean you have to sacrifice fun. Making the ordinary tasks in life a fun activity is my role as a mother. Enter bath time!

Beauty: The return of rose.

There's been a wonderful re-emergence in the beauty world and it's the return of rose. Rose scents, rose ingredients, rose saturation. It's a thing of beauty, quite literally, that I will never tire of. You see, the intoxicating scent of a rose is truly my favorite scent of all. Never too strong or a skin irritant, it's hard for me to walk away from rose products at just about any store front.

My Fall Beauty Picks. <11 of 'em!>

I've never been all too loyal to one particular beauty brand. That's changed quite a bit in 2017. I find myself reaching for the staples pretty frequently these days.

Timeless skincare.

  4. Results

The last one is kind of obvious but hey, it needs to be said. ...and I found one that actually accomplishes all of the above: Timeless Skincare. You'd be amazed what $20 can do for your skin!

Water therapy @ Kohler Waters Spa in Burr Ridge!


Kohler Spa is synonymous with luxury. The best of the best. I've had the pleasure of visiting The American Club in WI for a weekend but never before did I know that luxury was only a short 30-minute drive from my home sans overnight stay. 

If you haven't visited the Kohler Waters Spa in Burr Ridge - you're missing out! Located in the Burr Ridge Village Center you can find the spa nestled in the middle between high end shopping, dining, movies and more. One could easily make a day of this destination and come home fully rested and rejuvenated.
