My name is Holley and I am a single mother of two (5 and 9), I am a full time office manager at a marine dealership and service center ( I am outside a lot), and I am a college student working towards my Master's in Business - Healthcare Administration.
I love makeup and all things pampering. Being a single mother, these items can be a huge luxury instead of a staple for me...that makes me love them even more.
My hobbies (when I have time) are hunting, fishing, hiking, horse riding, and kayaking. I very much enjoy the outdoors.
Everyday I do yoga, enjoy a nice cup of coffee, read a devotional, and enjoy herbal tea.
I am a huge reader and read at least 3-5 books a month.
I am considering getting into the blogging scene. I am a very passionate person about what I love ..and also what I dislike. This includes makeup, skincare, books, food, kids tv shows, etc. ( I will destroy a poorly made kids movie).
My kids are wonderful. My son is 9 and he is now getting too "big" for kids shampoo and such so now he uses men's shampoo and deo..even though he doesn't really need it.
My daughter is 5 and she is too sassy for her own good. She is a huge diva and has a makeup collection as big as mine.
I hope everyone enjoys my reviews. I am always looking for recommendations from books to makeup, so pass them my way <3
I finally purchased this after watching Cassie Holmes rave about it. I have tried several brands' versions of the beauty blender but this is by far the best one I have ever owned. I will definitely be repurchasing. It looks super small when new in the box , but it swells up huge. It is soft but gives a great blending effect on your face. I love the pointed tip for around the eyes and around the nose. I highly recommend this sponge.Another great product from Loreal!
This product is worth every bit of hype it receives. My lashes look their absolute best using lash paradise. They look full and long, but not cakey. I would highly recommend the $8 for this mascara. My only complaint is that the coating on the actual packaging was flaking off and getting all over my hands. May have been a fluke packaging , bot the product inside was 5 stars!
Juicy Juice is always in our refrigerator. I do not keep sodas, kool-aids, etc as drink options in our house because there is absolutely nothing beneficial to my children's health from drinking them. My kids enjoy the different flavors of Juicy Juice, but Apple is commonly purchased in our house. We also buy the little Juice boxes for their snacks.
I plan on purchasing the full size of this sunscreen after receiving a sample in Ipsy or Birchbox a while ago. I love cucumber scented everything, so this sunscreen was an automatic winner for me. I do not smell like sunscreen with this. It feels nice on my face. Does not cause me to break out or become oily, and it looks good under makeup. Highly recommend.

I have multiple shades of the Maybelline lipsticks. I have tons of their finishes and collabs...I truly do love Maybelline. Of course there have been a few misses, but the majority of my purchases with their lipsticks have been wonderful. I highly recommend Maybelline for multiple color options, with multiple finishes, for a very affordable price.
I was not blown away by this blender . It was ok at first but I noticed that it was leaving green fuzzies on my face and almost like a green tint on my foundation. Was not fond of this sponge after that. It blended comparable to the real techniques sponge.
I really wanted to love this eyeshadow pallet but I just don't. It looks muddy when I blend, the shimmers are dull, the navy is patchy. I am so disappointed in how much I paid for this pallet only for me to never reach for it because the quality is crap. It smells good, but that's it.
