I recently swabbed my (now old) iphone case to see how many microbes/germs were on it, and the results were so gross! I had never really thought of the cleanliness of my phone before—but it makes sense that it would be disgusting considering all the places my phone has been as a mom-on-the-go. It has been touched by grubby little toddler hands, on the floor of a public restroom (thanks Hazel for digging it out of my bag and setting it on the floor while I sat helpless going pee. Ha!), and once I accidentally dropped in a dirty diaper. Oops!
Aaaahhhhhhh! I am so obsessed with our maternity pictures taken by my friend Morgan from Magnolia Rain Photography! We had this idea for an orchard blossom maternity photoshoot, but it almost didn’t work out. We planned to take our
When Pantone announced the color of the year is Marsala, my first reaction was “What the heck color is Marsala?!” lol. It looks a lot like wine/burgundy to me but apparently there’s a difference. Either way, this color is gorgeous!
Can you believe that today is New Years Eve?! This year went by so fast! I thought it’s be fun to take a look at some of my favorite outfits from 2014 🙂 I’ll be back on Monday with an outfit post. Hopefully this wind dies down soon so I can actually take blog pictures without getting blown away. lol. I tried (and failed) taking pictures yesterday. My hair was a tangled mess by the end of it. I’m pretty sure I made a few onlookers laugh while they watched me fight the wind, my hair, and the tripod. I’m telling you, it was a mess. Haha!
Hope everyone has a happy New Year! Thank you so much for reading my blog! Here’s to a great 2015!
Below, you can shop some of my favorite pieces from 2014 that are still available/have come back in stock.
I have become addicted to the website Lyst. It is now part of my morning routine…reply to emails, social media, check Lyst, and of course eat breakfast. I cannot make it through the day without breakfast. Sometimes I even eat two breakfasts 🙂 Anyways, back to Lyst. Have you heard of it yet? I just discovered it and it’s awesome! It’s an online shopper’s dream! Basically, you can shop all your favorite sites in one place, Lyst. You follow the different stores/brands/stylists you like and their products show up in your Lyst feed. You can save your favorite items to your “wishlyst” and you can organize your “wishlysts” into different folders like shoes, jewelry, designer pieces, etc. I love being organized so anytime I get to make lists and organize my thoughts, I get super happy. But I haven’t even told you about my favorite part…when an item you’ve saved to one of your “lysts” goes on sale or comes back in stock, you get an email notification. I just keep adding things to my “lysts” like crazy because with the holidays and end of the year, companies are always putting items on sale. I want to know when my faves are marked down and there’s no easier way to do that than Lyst. I snagged up this coat when I found out it was on sale. I’ve been on the hunt for leopard booties and found a couple pair that I’ve “lysted”. I’m hoping they go on sale soon. I keep stalking my email to see if they have yet. lol.
Side note: You see that brown blob on the left side of the headboard? That’s Smokey the Bear. This was the hubs’ bed frame from childhood and he’s had Smokey on it as long as he can remember, and he refuses to let me take it off. I tried to sneak and take it off a while ago, thinking he’d never notice it was missing but when we went to bed that night, he asked where Smokey was and made me put it back. I’m telling you, that boy’s a weirdo. Ugh! Doesn’t he see that Smokey the Bear clashes with my decor?!
So technically, I’m not “craving” the earrings and lipstick because I already have them but I do think I need to get all these other pieces to go with them. I mean, it would be the right thing to do for the earrings and lipstick.
Hope you’re having a great Thursday! __________________________________________________________
Nordstrom is having their big clearance sale with up to 40% off items (ends 11/11) and here are my picks. My birthday is tomorrow so feel free to get any of this for me. lol. Just kidding! Unless you were actually going to buy me something, in which case I wasn’t kidding at all 🙂 _________________________________________________________ Everything is under $100!
Some people know tomorrow as “Halloween” but it is better known as “One Week Before Kacie’s Birthday”. I’m so excited! I’ve been putting together my birthday wishlist for practically the past year (I’m seriously the easiest person to shop for because at any given point in the year, I have a wishlist ready to hand out…just in case) and I emailed it to all my family a month ago. I thought I’d share it with all of you too. You know, just in case you want to get me a little somethin’ somethin’ 🙂
11. Hydrangea Stem (These leopard heels used to be on that list but I accidentally bought them for myself. Oops 🙂 I also want an iPhone 6 and have been dropping hints to the hubs. And hinting I mean saying “I want you to get me an iPhone 6 for my birthday”. I’m very subtle like that.)
