Thai Lotus Restaurant Review (and Video!)

I’ve been wanting to do some mini-vlogs/reviews of restaurants and things to do in Denver. But like so many good ideas, they take time, planning, motivation, babysitters…so while my mother-in-law was here for our Vegas trip, we took advantage of the free babysitter and snuck away for a quick lunch at one of our favorite

Should You be Using a Makeup Primer?

Let’s talk about primers.  I’ve sporadically used some in the past (mainly samples received), but have generally never felt like I needed a primer.  But now I think I’m missing the boat on this one and you could be too! I’ve been noticing lately that my skin is looking extra shiny/oily by the middle of the
