Summer Beauty Trends

Thanks to Walgreens for underwriting this post. I was paid as a member of the Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all mine. Visit http://www.discoverbeautywithin.com/. It is hard to believe that summer is almost here, but this year I’m more acutely aware of the start of summer because that is when this baby bump […]

Fashion Forward Pregnancy at Mom 2.0

The recent chatter about the Mom 2.0 fashion scene really doesn’t apply to me this conference go-around. Why? Because I’m 32 weeks pregnant. At this point, my main goal is not fashion.

For those of you who have been with me since the beginning, you first knew me as Metrowestmama on Twitter, […]

Spring and Summer Fashion Trends

For Beauty and Fashion Week here at CharleneChronicles, we have talked about beauty. Specifically, skin care and makeup routines. Now let’s talk fashion. What are the trends for spring? And how can we fit it into our wardrobe without breaking the bank? I am a huge fan of Marshalls and T.J. Maxx, even since I was […]

30 Second Makeup Routine

The second Fashion and Beauty Week post is about a quick 30 second make-up routine. For work-at-home moms and stay-at-home moms, wearing makeup is not necessarily at the same priority as when working in an office. Nor is the amount of makeup.
