Drug Store Beauty Favorites

April 29, 2013 duchessoffork 5

I love fancy cosmetics and beauty products as much as the next girl but I don’t have the money to splurge on those items quite like I used to. Any extra change I have these days goes towards stuff for the babies. Many beauty items I use every day can be found in the ais …

April 24, 2013 duchessoffork 15

Nearly six weeks have passed since Mac was born and I’m ready to get back to my pre-baby health and fitness practices. I’m not concerned with getting “skinny”- I just want to return to the state of mind and physical shape that I was before Mac was born …
