Life (and Makeup) With Baby

Hi there!

You may have noticed that it’s been a minute since I’ve written something or shared my new beauty obsessions—almost a year in fact. And just what has been keeping me so busy?

My new mom makeup routine includes mascara, lipstick, blush and MAC compact

A slightly different look for my vanity

A new job that began last February and OH YEAH I HAD A BABY! My little monkey is 9 weeks old now and my go-to response to the inevitable but innocuous “So how is motherhood?” line of questioning can be summed up in one word: INTENSE. All the euphoria and anxiety and joy and pains (physical, emotional and psychological) are turned up to 11 and coupled with the least sleep I’ve ever had in my life, it all makes for an adventure that, I’m sure like so many women before me, is impossible to truly be prepared for, anticipate or adequately describe.

So it’s worth giving the popular (#basic) bloom a fresh look.

Why This 5-Step Nail Treatment System Is Everything

Londontown nail treatment system

This packaging is !!!

Yes genetics, environment, diet and lifestyle all play a part in how the aging process will hit you—gently, like a summer’s breeze or punishing like a tropical storm—but most people who have the time, money and inclination have smartened up with a skincare regimen that does some (okay A LOT) of the work for them.

So why doesn’t the same hold true for nails? A nice mani is one thing but kept-up nails that are clean, smartly filed and healthy-looking have long been a priority to me because if I feel good from the neck up but my nails are an uneven mess, something is off.

I was very eager to get my hands on Londontown’s Nail Treatment System to see for myself and test drive the multi-step system.
