Beauty Bag

I am back with some of my new favorite beauty products!

If your hair is anything less than soft and flowy, you need to try this set! I’ve been searching for a go-to everyday shampoo and conditioner that doesn’t leave my hair knotty. This makes my thick, wavy hair easy to brush out when wet.  After I brush it out, I’ll mix 3 pumps of the Potion 9 mixed with All Soft Oil and blow dry. I’ve even tried blow drying with minimal manipulation and believe it or not, the results are still soft and flowy locks with just some more body. If you have fine/flat hair – this is not for you.

If you have trouble getting your hair to do what you want, I recommend the Redken High Rise Shampoo and Conditioner.



I’ve been using this skincare line for a few years now. It’s a Hungarian made line which uses the most pure ingredients possible. When you see the ingredient list, water isn’t listed as the first one like most products.  So all you have to use is a smidge and then add some water to your moisturizers and it goes such a long way. The Rosehip Oil is my favorite product, but I’ve used almost every one of their products and they are all amazing. At night I apply the oil before my moisturizer and it really evens everything out. It smells and feels great too!

Happy Fall!

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
