MOMMY + ME OUTFIT

Mommy And Me Style

White Pointy Toe Flats | Pink Sparkly Shoes

I am totally that mom. You know, the mom who dresses to match her daughters. In my defense, it’s pretty easy to always match them because I usually buy us all neutral colored clothes. But I have even been guilty of changing my outfit if Hazel picks out something to wear that doesn’t match what I’m already wearing…like when I was wearing brown, and she picked out

As I have gotten older, it has been harder and harder for me to come up with gift ideas for Cody to get me. Most of the time I ask for boring stuff like a Rumba vacuum or new towels. Haha! But for the past couple of years for Christmas, Cody has gotten me high quality jewelry, and I absolutely LOVE every piece he has gotten me so far! When Hazel was

Corduroy Pants | White Sweater: similar

I remember when Hazel was just a few hours old and my father-in-law looked at me and said “you look tired”. I wanted to reply “Duh! I only got two hours of sleep last night because I just had a baby!” But instead I just smiled and said “Do I? I feel pretty good.” Two years, plus another baby later, and I’m officially tired. Ha! Or at least that’s what my under eyes would tell you. I’ve gotten pretty used to less sleep, so I don’t feel super tired, but these dark circles under my

GREAT HAIR DAY: #PANTENE14DAYCHALLENGE

pantene 14 day hair challenge
By | beauty | No Comments

“You always want what you can’t have.” That is so true when it comes to hair. People with fine, silky hair want volume, people with curly hair want smoother, less frizzy hair, etc. In my case, I have thick, coarse hair, and I want more shine. My biggest hair struggle is that my hair gets very dry and dull (especially on the ends). I use a lot of heat on my hair which causes hair damage. It makes my hair

If I’m being completely honest, this makeup routine probably takes me more like 7 minutes, but 5 minutes is a better title. Haha! Before becoming a mom, I used to take a lot longer to get ready, but now, I barely have enough time, so I’ve had to take some steps out of my routine (no more fancy eyeshadow) and find little tricks to make applying my makeup faster. Like using the
