DIY Eyebrow Grooming

If you are reading this post, there is a good chance that you are female, over 27 years old, maybe a mom, and need some serious grooming. If the last two years have taught me anything, it is how to take care of business (aka my eyebrows) myself. After not going to the salon for threading for over a year, I saved a lot of time, but I also saved a lot of money by problem-solving my brows. 

About three years ago, I got micro-blading done (see the photos and full post here), and until I can get them re-done by the same aesthetician, I have been using these four tools to keep up with my brows.

Check our all of my beauty posts here.

Eyebrow Pencil By Benefit

I have talked to many of my friends and we all agree that even our eyebrows thin out over time. I fill mine in daily with this pencil by Benefit (#5) to combat thinning eyebrows.  

Many other pencils on the market have similar colors and price points, but not all of them last as long as this one does. After testing them all for you, this one is the clear winner. It also doubles up as a quick eyeliner if need be; try it!

Nair Wax Strips

These gentle strips are perfect for even the most sensitive skin and get rid of the more thin and fine hairs that you can’t get with tweezers and scissors.

CALA Tweezers

Speaking of tweezers, this CALA set is by far the sharpest and most precise tweezer set I have ever used! I used to use Tweezerman until I discovered these; now, I keep a set in my car, too, for touch-ups on the go.

Flawless Hair Remover

I own about five of these! My tweens use the Flawless to groom their eyebrows and upper lip. Even my husband has used it! It is the easiest and most painless way to remove unwanted hair on the face quickly. Add this to your cart and keep it in your car; it will come in handy!

I hope this post delivers on something you need to put your best face forward every day. For more of my favorites on Amazon, check out my storefront!

SAVE BIG // Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Tomorrow, July 28th, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to EVERYone. As always, you can save a lot of money each year by shopping for high-quality fashion brands for less during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

This year is no different; with Fall around the corner, now is a great time to buy fun pieces to layer up or style once the temps cool down a little bit.

I have always share looks that I shop and wear year over year.  From my favorite cutouts to date night dresses, this year, the sales look great!  As always, scoop these pieces up quickly as they tend to sell out quickly!

Here are some affordable pieces that you will be glad you shopped for less, trust me!

Best Drive of 2019!

I have shared before that I live in a small town.  Living far from places I like to visit has turned me into quite the driver.  Give me a destination and I am there!

I have really grown to cherish my time on the road, I love being alone with my thoughts and of course my music! When I travel, I always make sure to rent a car to get around. Some of my most memorable drives have been around Hawaii and most recently on my trip to the Grand Canyon.

Surprisingly the drive from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon is less than 4 hours and the route goes straight through one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE cities of Sedona.  I had good company (my kids) and good music to go along with the scenic views. 

Road Trip

Check out our ride and some of the landscape in the video below.

Grand Canyon

At the Grand Canyon we signed up for a jeep tour with Grand Canyon Jeep Tours and Safaris.  Although we enjoyed the tour, I recommend skipping the pricey jeep tours and heading straight for the Visitors Center where you can easily build an itinerary according to your time available and personal preferences.  There are hikes and view points to accommodate all ages and interests.  They also have a cute and FREE Junior Rangers program for the kids to keep them engaged!  Two things to keep in mind when visiting the Grand Canyon: it’s COLD, you are between 7000 and 9000 feet high, bring layers, it was 41 degrees the day we went in October. Secondly be sure to catch the sunrises and sunsets, they are breathtaking.  Whether you watch the canyon light up in the morning or turn down for the night, the overwhelming beauty that is the canyon is really captured at these hours.

Sedona

On our way back we stopped for a while in Sedona.  This incredibly beautiful and unique city has had my heart since I first visited ten years ago.  Something about its isolation, desert landscape, and tall red rocks just captivates me.  Unlike in the Grand Canyon, in Sedona I HIGHLY recommend a jeep tour.  Getting up and around these rock structures is not easy, but with the Pink Jeep tours its fun and scenic! We had lunch at the tasty Oaxaca Restaurant that has the most beautiful view in the city.  Be sure to swing by the Fine Arts and Crafts Square where there are interesting boutiques and art galleries, live music, cafes, and more!

In The Desert

This drive was truly one for the books and with the beautiful Arizona sun on our side. We enjoyed every minute we spent on the road.  Now, I am off to plan my next #RoadTrip.
