Review: Beautycounter’s NEW Think BIG All-in-One Mascara

From the minute my parents let me wear makeup, mascara was one of those “can’t live without items,” so much that when we played the “desert island” game on road trips and late night parties, my answer was always MASCARA. So yeah you could say that I take my lash game pretty seriously!  As a […]

I have officially hit the wonderful 4 month hair loss postpartum stage. The other day I could literally hear my hair strands ping-ing out of my scalp. I shed a tear on behalf of every single strand.  Although there are many beautiful moments in motherhood, I wouldn’t count this as one of them. And if […]

How I grew my business with email marketing

Like so many of you, I start the new year with a bang. I gave my goals and lists and big ideas. Last January was no different. I had binged podcasts from Jenna Kutcher and Jasmine Star and even bought a course on how to create a course. But there was one area I had […]

When I first became a Beautycounter Consultant almost five years ago, my goal wasn’t to have a fun side hustle. We had a baby with special needs and Jonny was gone for days on end on his journey to become a firefighter. I couldn’t work my day job and my hair and makeup business and […]
