This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of SSM Health St. Mary’s. The opinions and text are all mine. Congrats! You’re pregnant but now you have to make a decision on who your doctor is going to be and where you’re going to deliver your baby. These are important decisions you have to make when you’re pregnant. For me, it was super simple to select SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital. If you didn’t yet read my posts on my boys’ birth stories, you can read them here and here.
Every year Brian and I ask the boys what they want to do for fall. This becomes our fall bucket list and we try to tackle everything on the list. This week I am sharing with you my Fall Favorites Tag and our family Fall Bucket List. This is in collaboration with Alexis, Kelsie, Ashleigh, and Steffanie. Last week we shared our Fall Fashion Staples. So be sure to check out those posts.

When it comes to makeup looks especially when I’m on the go I want it to be simple but with a bit of glam. You guys already know that I love creating very dramatic and glamorous makeup looks but today I wanted to share with you a really quick and simple fall makeup look featuring the Suzanne Somers organic makeup products.
School is back in session and we are back on a routine. I always feel like my boys come home from school “starving” as if they didn’t eat anything all day? But I know they have eaten their lunch and snack I packed for them. I swear my boys have so much appetite that I’m always surprised by how much they eat. Every day after school I like to ensure I have something ready for them to have before we eat dinner. Just to hold them over for a few hours since we don’t have dinner until 530-6pm.
Happy First Day of Fall. Although it is 90 degrees in Wisconsin (thanks to the heat wave), I’m still going to start off the first day of Fall by doing a really bold burgundy color makeup look. That’s what this weeks Beauty Mix is all about. Burgundy screams fall. It’s dark, warm, and bold. To be honest this color is my favorite color to rock during the fall season.

Sadly this month will be coming to an end soon and you definitely don’t want to miss out on the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty. If you’re unfamiliar with the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty, boy are you missing out. But basically, it’s where Ulta has a huge sale on certain items each day for 21 days. So each day there is a different sale happening.
This past Saturday I turned 29. My parents, nephew, boyfriend, my boys and I went to Chicago. I have never gone to Chicago to be a tourist. I’ve only driven by it whenever my family and I use to drive to New York to visit family. So for my 29th birthday, I wanted to do something fun that involved my boys and parents because usually every year I would celebrate with close friends and my boys would be gone for my birthday with their dad.
You guys have no idea how ready I am for Wisconsin to get back into the Fall weather. This past week it’s been in the high 80’s and I wasn’t too happy about that because the week before that we literally had 60-degree weather. Like mother nature turned on the heat on us again. NOT COOL! Fall is by far my favorite season. I just love everything about it from the candles, decorations, weather, all things pumpkin, Halloween and of course fashion. This week I am showing you guys, my must-have Fall Fashion Staples.
First off I have to say HAPPY WEDDING DAY to my girl Kelsie. She’s getting married today. So excited for her. Welcome back to the Beauty Mix Series. Last week us girls shared 4 different warm toned eye looks which you can check out here, here, here and here. For this week’s Beauty Mix it’s all about the Brown Tones. As a brown eye girl, brown eye looks are probably one of my favorite looks to create. I wanted to create a look that was very bold and smokey because fall is all about the bold and smokey eye looks.
This week on the HOW TO Series we are talking about color correcting. Color Correcting is something that not many people know how to do. I will admit I was intimidated by the colors in the palette when I first saw Color Correcting palettes. If you’re not sure how to color correct before applying your foundation this post will definitely help you because I have a step by step of how I correct on my own skin and what each color of the shades are meant for and what shade you should use based on skin tone.
