Add This Mascara to Your Beauty Arsenal

Finding good mascara is tough. There are so many brands, types and ooh, pretty packaging! I have tried most of these different types and honestly, I've been disappointed time and time again. That's why I'm so excited to add the Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara to my kick-ass beauty arsenal!!

The pink and green colors are instantly recognizable but this certainly is not your typical Maybelline, pink tube mascara! The brush is shaped like a Christmas tree and is covered with tiny combs, not bristles.

I like to use this mascara OVER a thicker one like CoverGirl LashBlast or Maybelline Classic Volume Express. The unique brush style really allows you to comb through and separate your lashes. Goodbye clumps! It takes about 15 seconds to do and is totally worth it. Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes leaves my eyes feeling light and looking great! 

Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!

Add This App! Take a Breath and Stay CALM

Okay, ladies, I know that with your busy life and active lifestyle, it's hard to take a break! But we all know that some relaxation time is necessary to maintain our daily sanity! This is where the Calm app comes in. Use it as white noise to help you sleep, or listen to the six-nine minute relaxation guides. It's absolutely heavenly :)

Basically, download the app and choose between more than ten different scenes including the beach, rainforest, or mountains. Each plays a calming sound, as well as displays the serene scene itself (say that 5 times fast!) As I mentioned before, "guided calm" feature walks you through the "7 Steps of Calm." The most soothing female voice ever will walk you through guides and instructions that focus on things like posture, mindset, body, patience, and breath. She helps you to really think about your relaxation and almost turn it into more of a short meditation.

Being a person who's brain is constantly in overdrive, the Calm app is a needed breath of fresh air for me. Think about it, just minutes of meditation/relaxation time a day can really make a difference! 

For those of you who don't have iPhones, check out the website It has even more features to keep you calm, relaxed and focused. So take a deep breath and relax for a few minutes. You deserve it!

What sounds calm you down?
