How To Skim 5 Minutes Off Your Morning Routine

As any new parent will tell you, life with a newborn certainly takes some adjusting to. But honestly, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done! I don’t want her to get any bigger, and I could seriously hang out staring at her all day for the rest of my life. However, at some point reality knocks, and I actually have to get dressed and get out of the house. I’m just starting to get back into the swing of doing some light work, catching up on emails, shooting some new blog content with Mackenzie, and taking an easy coffee meeting or two. Getting ready is always a process for us women, but even if you’re not a new mum, we could all do with shaving a few minutes off our morning routines, don’t you think?

I’ve talked about Olay on the blog before (check out my review here), and their Olay Regenerist Whip has become one of my go-to products over the last few weeks. It’s a multitasking moisturizer that is lightweight yet super hydrating, and the texture almost feels like whip cream (yum!). My favorite part about it is that it soaks into your skin immediately, so that you don’t have to wait for it to dry before applying your makeup. Plus, it has a special formula that acts almost like a no-primer primer, making my makeup routine shorter, absorbing my skin’s oils throughout the day, which helps to avoid that 3pm shine. I typically use a primer before putting on my foundation, so being able to skip it is a huge help, but my makeup still holds well and my skin doesn’t get oily after hours of wear. With my limited time these days, I’ve been living on this stuff.

When I get ready in the morning, I’ll cleanse, tone, and layer Olay Whips on – before moving immediately into a lightweight foundation or tint, which is my favorite these days. The less layers and steps, the better. Want to try it? Grab one for yourself at Walgreens here, and tell me what you think!

    I love when a product can be used for more than one thing, it makes getting ready so much more efficient and makes me love the product even more!

    Enjoy your husband and your child like you are. It is no joke when older people tell you to do that. It’s the best thing to do in life.

    You look smashing! I need to get that Whip!

    Absolutely we don’t have much time in mornings but these simple steps are quite necessary for our skin as it hydrates and prepping our skin for entire day.
    I’ve never tried this , definitely give it a try ASAP.

  • Does anyone else own a scrapbook?! 📚🤣If you don't necessarily consider yourself to be an 'artistic' person but still enjoy getting creative, you've got to try scrapbooking! I've been doing it ever since I was young (and even kept a wedding inspo moodboard secret from Mackenzie for a few years before we got engaged, lol) - and it's such a fun, easy way to express yourself.

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
I want to dedicate this post to one of my dearest friends, who became a Mummy to premature surrogate twins this year, only to tragically lose them a few hours later, as she held them in her arms. My friend had been through years of trying for a baby through IVF, and finally - after years of hope and patience - we all felt her and her husband’s dream of becoming parents was about to come true.
That heart-breaking day also happened to be the date Honor was born, so the poignancy was all the sharper. I still remember the moment I learned the news. My own mum was with me, and we wept silently, hugging. 
I fully expected my friend to avoid Mackenzie and I for a while, to deal with her grief. Surely being around a newborn would just be too much. But testament to her angelic, brave character, she asked to come over. I’ll never forget the warmth and love in her eyes as she held Honor tight. She said she was full of hope. She said that the twins would be watching over, helping and guiding them on their continued journey to have a baby. 
You’d think that would be enough to focus on, but no. Instead, this wonderful couple decided to set up @pompomsandstardust , a charity not only raising money to help other people have surrogate children, but one that offers crucial (and lacking) advice and support to the ‘IP’s’ (intended parents), along their journey. 
If you or your loved ones have been through a difficult time conceiving, my heart goes out to you- I wish you strength, perseverance- and please feel free to share your story below.
The charity website will be up soon with more information, but for now follow @pompomsandstardust 💫
