Shhh its a secret!

So today Kelly at Kelly's Korner she is doing her Show Us Your Life about beauty secrets.

I love to read about what little things people do to simplify life or make life more fun and beautiful.

I thought I would share a few things which are nothing big and I know they are no secret but alas here they are

1. I like to blast my eye lash curler for a few seconds with the warm blow dryer it helps curl the lashes more  and make them pop once you put a few coats of mascara, speaking of mascara one that I absolutely love
Maybelline Lash Stiletto, its awesome!

2. If I need to make it an extra day without washing my hair especially in the winter when everything is so dry to begin with I will give my roots a little dusting of cornstarch.  I have heard of people doing the same thing with baby powder but since I don't keep baby powder on hand  I just use a little cornstarch.  It absorbs the little greasies and gives you a little extra volume on top of it 

3. A way to combat dry cracked heels is to rub the rough areas with oxy clean pads and then slather your feet with a thick lotion, then put socks on and go to bed.  If your heels are really dry you will notice results after a few days but if your heels are only a little dry and crackly the next morning you will notice huge improvements!! It doesn't hurt to go over your heels with a pumice in the shower a few days a week as well

Awesome mascara. I used to switch around 'til I this one!

I just learned about the baby powder hair trick (it works!)...but...hmmm...cornstarch. Good to know!

Great tip for the feet. Thanks!

P.S. Following! :)

Congratulations on your pregnancy! And I love your beautiful wedding/couple photos on the side bar. You're a cute couple. :)

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
