At Home Chemical Peel

Cate Mezyk - March 24, 2015

Every winter, I schedule a chemical peel at Dr. Prischmann’s office. I’ve mentioned before that I have melasma, and this helps to lighten some of the discoloration from that. Plus, I love having fresh and new skin once a year for so many reasons. Typically, I schedule my appointments for the winter months, because the new skin is very sun sensitive – and though I …

4th of July Pallet Decor

Cate Mezyk - June 26, 2014

Once upon a time, Tammy and I went treasure hunting. By treasure hunting, I mean that we went trolling through the woods behind my house (home to this mess) for items we could DIY. Typically, if I can’t get to a project within minutes of bringing home the supplies, Ed dumps it all in the trash. He throws away everything. And that is no exaggeration. He …

Why can’t I be a mermaid?

Tammy Hiveley - June 12, 2014

Remember her? This is the first time I crimped my hair.  Daryl Hannah in Splash made waves in the hair industry, lit-er-ally.  Every little girl I knew wanted to be a mermaid.  Madison even became the ‘play’ name of choice!  Did I just date myself?… and not in a good way!  Darn. The kinky locks trend came and went but guess what?!  They’re back for Summer 2014! I’m …

If your girls are anything like mine then they refuse to wear a boxy “boy” shirt.  Usually reduced to scrunching the back of the baggy T with a hair tie knot.  I’m frankly sick of this look by now.  Anyone with me? Come on, girls!  Let’s try something …
