I’m back!

I know, I know, it’s about time. BUT…… We finally opened our doors to brush&blush and I can not wait to give you guys the tour and tell you what’s been going on. First of all this,

My beautiful family the night of our grand opening! We were all squinting a little because of the sun, but, you get it!

here are a couple more of my favs!

Women supporting women, nothing better! Aren’t my friends gorgeous?

One of the most hilarious people I know, our manager, Shoshuna.

So now that we are open I’ve been overwhelmed with work. I’m not complaining, I feel incredibly blessed and I’m looking forward to building an empire for my little family. Being a business owner has always been a dream of mine and we are making it happen!

On another note Squeaker is now 20 months old and still not walking. It’s been very tough trying to make a proper plan of action for my little love. Advice comes from every corner, and trying to filter it all and choose the best option for my family is tough. Therapy, no therapy. If she gets therapy, should we do it at school or at home? Should I put her in school full-time to be around other “walking” children more? Is it completely normal? How many specialist can one baby see?  I’m grateful that it seems that it is not neurological and the other day she actually held my hand and walked about 20′. I cried like an absolute baby. Nothing feels better than seeing your child reach a milestone. I’ve always watched these movies in the grocery store walking hand-in-hand with their toddlers and thought ‘one day that’ll be us’. Hopefully that day is sooner than later, but for now I am hopeful. All in Gods time I suppose.

Speaking of Squeaker I am trying to plan her 2nd birthday! I know it’s not until November but, I like to find little things on sale early instead of trying to throw it all together last-minute. I think our gift to her will be a “bug girl” room. Not, totally big girl but, ya know, rearrange some thing, make her crib into a toddler bed, pack up baby toys, etc. How long did you mommies wait? Right at 2, or later? I know some people wait until their child is like 5….. and I’m not into that. I’d be willing to wait a bit longer though if 2 is too early.

Oh! I almost forgot! they did a feature on me in Houston Brides magazine! lil ol’ me! Can you believe it? I’ll post a link soon!

Later Lovers!

 

January Bath & Body Favorites

I have found several new bath and body products I am LOVING this month! I’d post some makeup favorites, but I will wait to unveil the gorgeous line I have decided to carry in my salon, Brush & Blush, until later.  In the mean time, here is what’s been in my shower :)

Lush: Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub  This stuff is amazing! I have recently learned that if you are trying to tighten your skin you should use a salt scrub and if you would like to open your pores to be able to get a product, like moisturizer, really deep into your skin you should use a sugar scrub. As far as salt scrubs go, this one gets an A+

Speaking of sugar scrubs, I purchased this Soap & Glory: Sugar Crush Body Polish from Sephora and not only does it smell amazing but it also does everything it promises. It has a pretty strong lime smell, that fades soon after toweling off so it’s not over-powering, just enough to invigorate you and get you pumped for the day. At only $20, you get A LOT of product.

Run. No, seriously. Run to Sephora and pick this up today! By far my favorite product purchase of the month, this Josie Maran: Whipped Argan Oil is fantastic! I bought the Vanilla Apricot scent and have since been searching for anything else that smells as delicious. I only use this on my arms and neck because the rest of my body requires being shellacked in a much stronger moisturizer. This product is light, hydrating and in my opinion would make the perfect gift, especially with Valentines day around the corner. Treat a friend to this, she will thank you.

What were you loving this month? Let me know in the comments below. I’ll be posting another blog very soon so if you have any suggestions I’d love to hear those as well. (Squeakers favorites? Recipe? Fashion?) I’m so excited for this new adventure in our live’s and honored that  you guys care enough to join me on my journey! I promise to post as often as possible and take all recommendations into consideration. Have a great day and stay warm!
