wife + momma | entrepreneur | living in the midwest
Hey friend! I’m Hillary Hastings! Thank you for taking a minute to scoot over here to connect with me! I’m going to fill you in on a little bit about who I be. Im a little all over the place so bare with me!
I’m a 28 year old entrepreneur with Mary Kay Cosmetics! I’ve been running my own little biz for 5 years now. Several free cars later, I’m hooked. Not only for the fancy things this career offers but because of the impact this opportunity has on women. It’s changed me and countless others! My favorite is cultivating a culture of positivity for women to thrive in. Encouraging them, but mostly reminding them how truly incredible they are and that God has a purpose for them.
I’m also a wife to my husband Brent for 3 years and we have the sweetest baby boy, Crew. He was born September 3rd 2019 and 6 weeks early. He has been rocking our world ever since and we couldn’t be more blessed with a healthy, happy and full of personality little man! We also have our first born fur child Sophie, she’s a French bulldog and to say we are obsessed with her is an understatement.
My favorite color of all time is green. I love anything to do with home decor. I have more pillows than spaces to put them and I even play the corny home decorating games just to get my fix (embarrassing). Anything around a bonfire gets my attention. Obsessed with crime shows and documentaries.
For my fellow personality test enthusiasts (I’m obsessed, it’s fine) I’m a 7w8 on the enneagram (even though 3 is like right behind it). My top 5 strengths on the strengths finders is Strategic, Woo, Positivity, Communication, and Adaptability. I’m an I/D on the DISC personality. My basic need is freedom and choice but fun and pleasure is right up there too.
If we were hanging out I can guarantee you we would end up on a random adventure, probably to Target, but even that would be fun and I can promise we’d be laughing at just about anything. Creating experiences is my passion and I love more than anything leaving people better and happier than I found them! I promise to keep it real (sorry mom) and my prayer is to give you hope that if a hot mess like me can make it in today’s world of everyone starting their own something, then you most certainly can too sister. In fact, I’m confident enough to say that you can do anything you make up your mind to do! So welcome! Welcome to a virtual experience of my life! I hope to have you along for the ride.
MY GO TO BEAUTY PRODUCTS
through trial and error these are the best of the best beauty products that I use and love!
TIMEWISE 3D FOUNDATION
Did you know that almost every woman walking the planet isn’t 100% happy with her her foundation? That’s because she hasn’t tried THIS ONE. The holy grail of foundation. I’m obsessed! The coverage is flawless, feels like you have nothing on, and it’s an age defying formula with the patent pending 3D complex featuring encapsulated resveratrol, vitamin B3, and age defying peptide.￼
COCO + EVE SELF TANNER
If you know me, you know my love for self tanners runs deep. There’s just nothing like when you have a healthy glow to the skin, it makes me feel so much more confident! This is my go to for self tanning. It doesn’t smear, it’s not orange, blends like a dream, smells yummy, and the mit is like velvet! 10/10 recommend this to anyone looking for a sun kissed glow!
TIMEWISE MIRACLE SET 3D
My skin has never been brighter thanks to this skincare set! It smells amazing and delivers results in 4 weeks!
DRYBAR TRIPLE SEC
So like I mentioned, I use tons of hair products but this one is another game changer that I always come back to. It is like magic in a bottle! Gives me volume, texture and style without a ton of effort.
MORACCAN OIL DRY SHAMPOO
I get a lot of questions on what hair products I use (and there are many) but my hair routine begins and ends with this product. It gives my hair volume and longevity. Plus it smells like actual heaven!
LASH LOVE MASCARA
Hands down the BEST mascara ever. Makes my lashes look like I have falsies on! It doesn’t flake or clump, it’s the perfect application every single time.
Need an eye lift? I’m a new momma and man have these been a game changer!
KENRA DESIGN SPRAY
The only spray that truly holds my curls. It doesn’t make my hair crunchy like most hairsprays and it smells so so yummy! I spray this onto each section and let it dry before I curl and then bam, curls that stay all day.
FLAWLESS FACIAL HAIR REMOVAL
I have loved this tool for removing my peach fuzz. Having a baby does some fun things to your body, and getting more hair was one of those fun things I was blessed with. Problem solved with this bad boy though!
CLEANSING BRUSH + MASSAGER
This skin care cleaning system has been the best thing for my skin. It cleans like no other and the massager I swear makes my skin look lifted afterwards! It’s rechargeable and lasts forever without needing recharged!
HOT TOOLS CURLING IRON
I’ve had my curling iron for YEARS and it has stood the test of time. I love this curling iron and will not use another!
ROLL UP BAG
And this brings me to my final must have, the roll up bag! I have three... yes three! One for makeup, skincare, and body care. One for toiletries. And one for hair products. It makes my life SO SIMPLE! I roll them up and tuck them away under my bathroom vanity and it is a major space saver. And the pockets are clear so I can see everything that I need! I also travel at least once a quarter and never have to stress if I have it all, I simply grab my bags and know without a doubt I got it all! Can’t. Live. Without. To top it off they are SO CUTE!
