    At-Home Workouts

    At-home workouts. Y’all, I will be the first person to say I’m a big believer in at-home workouts. I know everyone is different. Some need the routine of going to the gym. Others love their specific niche workout class. I love spin and riding horses, two things I currently can’t do at home. I’m keeping my eye out though for a good spin bike at a reasonable price. I’m currently not working out due to my knee issue. I just had an MRI and am still waiting to hear back from the doctor on what to do next. If you want to try your hand at some different at-home workouts,…

    Mascaras for Sensitive Eyes

    The challenge: find mascara for sensitive eyes. Mascaras are tough-especially if you’re like me and you have sensitive eyes. I have severe chronic dry eye, to the point where my eyes do not really have any natural liquid on them. Finding eye makeup that does not irritate my eyes is almost impossible. I can definitely use mac paintpots, but past that it’s been super difficult. I wanted to only try drugstore mascaras for the affordability aspect of it. With mascaras being a more daily use product, regardless of how much makeup someone is wearing, I wanted to make sure it was accessible to everyone. I did a search a few…
