affiliate links First: almost all of the photos I took of this tutorial got corrupted while backing them up to my external hard drive so I need to reshoot it! HOWEVER, there is an IGTV video tutorial here with the complete tutorial for anyone interested and I wanted to get the step-by-step words and products listed here for anyone who wanted them! True story: Once I started really getting into makeup, I used to feel SO insecure to go out without foundation because I hated how uneven my skin looked. I have a few patches of discoloration on my cheeks that powders have a hard time sticking to and without an even base, it looked like I had no clue what I was . . .
Well, I'm just going to come right out and say it: I thought we'd be pregnant by now. I actually thought we'd be pregnant a long time ago, but surprise, surprise, things are not going as planned. I shared in my post earlier this week what's been going on medically for me over the last few months, including why I needed surgery two weeks ago. What I didn't say was that our OB basically told us that we would need to wait for a few more months before trying to grow our family again to let my body heal from the surgery. Understandable, but definitely another frustrating setback to our plans for bringing Baby Carr into the world (our miscarriage being our first . . .
I can't believe I haven't posted on HTC in over a month. It honestly makes me sad, because I've worked so hard and so long to create this site and I'm bummed it's been neglected so much this year.

And now that there's a huge fulfillment center in Utah, we often get free one-day shipping and my mind is blown. How did I live before Prime? Today, I'm teaming up with my good girlfriend, Sarah, to share our 10 Amazon Summer Must-Haves in preparation for Prime Day. Sarah went to . . .
This post was created in partnership with Utah Furniture Deals. All opinions are my own. I started writing about what a hot mess I've been over the last few weeks but then decided to save it for another post because when am I NOT a hot mess? Exactly. Long story short, between my site going down right before leaving on our cruise last week, dealing with some health problems, and just trying to keep my act together, things have been (say it all together) crazy town. The cruise was exactly what I needed last week. A WHOLE week, completely unplugged from online and from work and nothing but sunshine, salt water, and books to fill my time.
