Your hair and makeup bestie...well, we may not be besties yet but I'm hoping we will be!

A Little About Me

I’m a small-town girl from Iowa who has always had a passion for hair and makeup. A hairstylist by trade, I owned and operated a salon for many years. After moving to a new town for my husband’s business, I decided to take a break from my career to become a stay-at-home mama.

While I have LOVED every moment of that and am so grateful for the opportunity, it still felt like something was missing. I missed my salon and my clients and the daily interaction and inspiration that came with that. I loved providing a service that helped women feel their best, and after a while, I realized I wanted to do something that allowed me to achieve that same feeling again.


On a whim, I decided to take a chance on something new and bought a make-up kit that genuinely changed my life! I started setting up parties for friends and family and eventually turned this new passion into the blog you see today. Now, I wake up every day and create hair and makeup tutorials that hopefully provide you with a little bit of inspiration.

I’m still in shock that this is what I get to do, and I’m so grateful for those of you who have found your way to my little part of this giant online world.

Thanks For Following Along

I truly hope this blog provides you with some daily inspiration by offering styles that are both practical and easy to accomplish. I know that life can get crazy; as a mama to two active kiddos, I get that our time is precious. Because of this, my hair and make-up tutorials always keep these foundations in mind and hopefully provide you with some fun and fast how-tos for you mamas on the go!

Also, I promise only to share and recommend things that I have personally used and truly love because honestly, your trust means everything!

Thank you again for following along and for spending part of your day with me. It means the world to me!
