Five Favorite Second Cleansers

I am a huge fan of double cleansing. I credit it with really helping to improve my skin tremendously. If you think its hype, look at it this way. At the end of the day, you have makeup and dirt and  life on your face. When you come home, you need to get that stuff off. Sure one cleanser can do it. Some people swear by wipes, micellar waters or just a simple cleanser. And if that’s working for you, that is fine. But if you are finding that you…

Day after Thanksgiving Confessions 

So I had a really good Thanksgiving. The food, which I always cook every Thanksgiving, turned out really, really, really good, if I do say so myself. I added one new dish to my Thanksgiving menu, green beans wrapped in bacon with brown sugar and butter. They were so good. Vegetables should always taste like that. I have to add that we had a 95% gluten-free Thanksgiving, which I guess is the real confession here, because I don’t think my son realized it. He thinks the whole gluten free thing is…

Denim and Lace On Trend for A/W 2016

One of the trends that I am loving for Fall right now is the real resurgence of lace. I have always been a lace kind of girl, but it has not always been the most fashion forward of trends. Let’s be real, depending on the outfit, you can end up looking more like granny’s tablecloth and matching curtains or am 80s country and western throwback, than an on trend fashion diva. But many of the new lace pieces are not only extremely wearable without being precious, but paired with denim…

Dior Jelly Sleeping Mask Review

Sleeping masks are definitely moisture game changers. There is nothing like waking up in the morning with skin that feels like the bottom of a newborn’s soft little foot. Because water evaporates from the skin overnight, or in drier conditions, like flying, a sleeping mask is wonderful for drawing and sealing that water back in; it is the ultimate hydration.   My Thoughts Dior is the first sleeping mask that I have actually tried and loved. It is lightweight, not sticky and doesn’t overwhelm your face. You don’t feel as…

Belif True Aqua Bomb Review

My Thoughts This product changed my view of moisturizers. I have become a fan of gel creams. I am definitely a combo girl. I’m a little bit oily, a little bit dry, a little bit country, a little bit rap. This type of moisturizer is perfect for all of that. I have been using the Aqua Bomb for about two months. First, a sample, then a whole full sized jar, and then a repurchase. My daughter also likes this. How I Use It I find it ideal to use after…

Huge High End Beauty Haul | Video

Sometimes it happens. Sometimes you find that you have accumulated quite of bit of stuff. For me, it is almost always stuff for my face. There are very few things that I love more than discovering a new and amazing beauty product. Its like Christmas all the time.Over the past couple of months I have sampled, played with, tested, sniffed and bathed in all kinds of awesome beauty products and I don’t think I should keep all the fun and goodness to myself. Here is a collective high end haul…

Monday Confessions: The Election Struggles Are Real

I didn’t really want to talk about this here because I prefer to keep things light and refreshing here on the Mrs K Blog. But, sometimes you have to let stuff out. So here goes. It’s the first Monday after the election and I have a confession. I believe that a large number of people in this country right now are selfish, petty, and stubborn as F!!! And before you think you’re exempt. This behavior is coming from both sides. I’m not talking about peaceful protestors who are genuinely afraid…

Monday Confessions: I Am Now That Girl

This past weekend I did something that I never thought I’d do. I didn’t want to do. I didn’t even believe (at one time) anyone should do. My how we change our minds. I bought that moisturizer, you know the one, the one from the sea? Yes, that one. I closed my eyes, while the lady inserted my card (because I have that annoying chip now) and When I opened them up, she was handing me the green bag, complete with my moisturizer, samples and even a handy makeup travel…

Five Beauty Faves

Here are 5 beauty favorites that I have been loving lately. Dior Hydra life Jelly Sleeping Mask  Aside from the fact that it comes in a heavy, luscious blue glass jar that is like a throwback from a much more glamorous time than now, and it has a divine scent, this mask seals the moisture in throughout the night and I wake up with plump, hydrated, baby foot soft skin. It never occurred to me to add an extra layer more moisture at night until I received a sample of…

5 Ways to Step Up Your Skincare Routine

I have to admit, I am currently obsessed with skincare, not makeup, although I love the makeup too, but actual acne clearing, hyperpigmentation lightening, anti aging, I-don’t-have-to-wear-makeup-if -I-don’t-want-to-skincare. I actually look forward to taking off my makeup, in fact, I have become a little OCD about it these days. It is my ritual, my me time and I have made it a priority. There are two reasons I am obsessed with skincare, the first, I have had bouts with acne twice in my life, and now the remnants of that…
