Ulta Haul & Skin Care Update


Howdy Y’all,

Happy Wednesday friends, I do hope your week is going well, we are experiencing lovely weather at the moment, unseasonably warm which means one thing, being outside. I notice a visible improvement in the behavior and mood of Little L and I when we are able to be out enjoying the sunshine. If you follow me on Instagram @thelifestylelady you will see a photo of Little L and I having ice cream well you will see I was having none, no sharing allowed apparently.

I think I have mentioned before that I am suffering with a very small breakout of Milia so in my pursuit of fixing the problem I took a small trip to Ulta. In today’s video I talk all about Milia, my skincare and some other sneaky little goodies I picked up. Please enjoy.

Ta Ta for now,




Adult Summer Faves


Howdy Y’all,

Welcome to Monday. Trust your weekend was relaxed, restful and fun. Ours was just that, unfortunately they go too fast. On Saturday we went to a Taste of event in our village, it was small but effective as I got to see the local vendors. I found a dry cleaner who will collect and deliver from my home (win win.) Little L found a local cupcake shop which was delicious (not such great news long term -lol) What was interesting was Walgreens were represented (a drugstore to non US readers) by Boots (a U.K. drugstore.) They were foundation matching with a machine and giving samples away, being a beauty junkie I was happy to act as volunteer and honestly I was so surprised how accurate the machine was in selecting the correct tone for my skin. I gave a mini review of the product on Instastories and Snapchat. My names are @thelifestylelady and @lifestylelady respectively, if you want a giggle give me a follow.

Saturday night saw date night, firstly we braved that wild jungle called Toys R Us, we were looking for Little L’s impending third birthday (I am in complete denial.) We then recovered by watching Girl on the Train, Emily Blunt was superb but I preferred the book. We followed such darkness with Tapas and good red wine which was yummy. Today has been more relaxed as I was feeling a little under the weather.

So in Texas we are still in full summer mode, I dream of scarves, fleece and hot chocolate but today I share with you my adult summer faves. These are things I have loved, used and repurchased. Many of the things are not entirely summer specific, so please enjoy.

Have a good week.

Ta Ta for now.

Mini Sephora Haul

Howdy Y’all!

Happy Hump Day. Sorry I have not been posting of late, we took a well needed family vacation to New England. So I took a rest, I will be posting about the trip at a later date, but we had a fantastic time. I do have apres vacation blues but I thought I would brighten things with a mini haul video – enjoy.
