I’ve been getting a lot of emails and questions on Instagram over these past few weeks about the different products I tend to plug again and again. I thought I’d make it easier for ya and put them all in one place. There are all sorts of things I’ve linked to though the lifetime of my blog, but these are going to be the ones I’ve been talking about for the past month or so 🙂
And incase you’re wondering, yes, I am starting to feel more comfortable and at home in NYC. I think school and a schedule has really helped. I also think my attitude adjustment has really helped too, which is in large part to my Happiness List. It only took me 7 months of my husband being gone and away for me to get it figured out!! Haha! Oh dear. Change is not my strong suit. But, now that we are settled and have our little lives somewhat together, it has gotten a ton easier. Plus a gratitude and self love journal has really helped too! I’d highly recommend both! It’ll work wonders in your life.
ANYWAYS, lets get these links rolling.

My mascara that I’ve been using these last few months is this one. I bought it after I got my eye lash extensions removed and it helped me get longer lashes! That may have just been my genetic makeup…to grow lashes fast…hmm, I’m not sure. Either way, I’m pretty in love with it and haven’t found a better one since!
I hate lipstick, but LOVE tinted lip balm. These are my favorite top three: one, two, three. I use all of these (plus others!!) nearly every day. Seriously, give them a whirl. They all are perfection for the mom who wants to look natural but still with some lovely color on her lips! No muss no fuss!
My mom bag/backpack that I’ve been using since we got to the city can be found here. I don’t use purses when I have kids to wrangle, especially going shopping or taking the subway anywhere. I need both hands!! So, I thought this was a cute option.
I have this workhorse of a stroller and I LOAD IT UP. So expensive, but so worth it especially for city living. I use it literally everyday for carting kids to and from school, groceries and big loads to Goodwill. We have this wheel board on the back for Blake.
The shoes I wear the most in the city are these ones (pictured in this post) and these TOMS. Flats, ya’ll. I’m no fancy or stylish New Yorker running around in high heels. I’m a practical Mom who tries to be cute at least 50% of the time. (It doesn’t always work.)
And because I love ya, here are some links to the meals that are on my menu this week!
Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake (with a new filling I’m testing!)
Roasted Jalapeno Queso (to hide in the fridge, just for me! Mwahahaha!)
Morning Glory Muffins (testing this as a paleo recipe)
