TOT: (Two on Tuesday) Body in a Bottle!

I love anything and everything that is sequins and glitter- no matter how old I get!  Call it my guilty pleasure or just the girly girl side of me. It probably comes from my dancin days, just adding that final little touch of glitter and shine. I have raved about the Rockin Body by Victoria Secret on my Instagram awhile back, but wanted to write a little more about it.  First off, it smells amazing, as all VS products and scents do in my opinion.  Second, it has a light bronzer or “tint” to it that immediately gives a sleek, toned look.  And the best part, the shimmer.  Not too much, but just the right amount to give your skin a little glisten. I like to glow, or at least look like it! [Read more…]

This outfit is one of my new faves! Once I put it together, my wheels started turning not only how I can pair other pieces with this- changing the top, etc…but how to embrace this style in general. (Stay tuned for some super cute outfits from some purchases I just made at Kohls, including a tulle skirt- finally a tulle skirt in my closet.) Alright, I digress…back to the deets! [Read more…]

I knew from the moment I saw this dress I had to order it immediately. I waited a couple days in debate because I rarely pay full price unless it’s a great buy. Then my shipping prayers were answered and I received a 15% off coupon! It was still on the higher end but I loved the look and I knew exactly where I would wear this dress the first time.

TOT: (Two on Tuesday) Eyes and Lips

Happy Tuesday Loves! I mentioned via Facebook that I will post TWO things I love on Tuesdays, called Two on Tuesday or “TOT”.  It may be fashion, beauty products, recipes, crafts…in other words, anything!

Two weeks ago I shared my love for a shapely tinted eyebrow and shellac mani’s!  If you have lighter hair like me, the tinting is great  because it captures every little brow hair giving you the fullest shape possible. It really changes your overall look- it’s truly amazing!  And shellac, I mean come on, who doesn’t love painted nails and ones that last 2-3 weeks with no maintenance, right? Super easy for busy ladies that don’t have time to re-do their nails every couple days.  And with kiddos? Good luck. Every time I try to paint my nails at home thinking, ok, right now is perfect- it’s not. It never is! [Read more…]

Three little dresses

I recently went shopping- I know you’re shocked!  I was only going to “look” as I ran into Macy’s last week to grab some new fall lipstick. (Side note- I picked up Mac Diva and I absolutely love it for fall. It’s the perfect deep berry shade I was looking for!) Anywho, I couldn’t resist the sale racks on my way out so I zipped through real quick. Eeks!

I wanted to share the three little dresses I ended up bringing home, I know I know, three may sound excessive to some of you but I have two in my closet with tags I’ve been questioning and I’ve decided they are going back today- I mean tomorrow, its rainy and nasty out! [Read more…]

Bye Bye, Baby Weight!

Soooo, I said I am generally healthy…like most of the time…maybe like some of the time…whom I kidding, I can’t stop eating cookies!  What terrible little habits I’ve continued since being prego. Not to mention at some point during pregnancy I had to quit going to Zumba, it was too fricken hot most of the time to walk outside (but I have a treadmill- whatever), and eventually those 5lb dumbbells felt like 20lbs! It’s no lie, its hard to get back into the routine of working out when you take too long of a break-whatever your reason may be. [Read more…]

Fall Family Photos

These photos are 2yrs old, in fact we had them done to celebrate our 5yr Anniversary. I love getting family photos taken- not everyone in the fam shares my enthusiasm but to me its very exciting. It’s also a fun challenge for me too because I really enjoying searching for the right outfits and styling the shoot.

I have a wonderful photographer I met about 3 years ago and we instantly clicked. Not only does she get me and my elaborate visions sometimes, but she has become a great friend that continues to follow my family and document our memories together!  We just love her! [Read more…]

Fur baby, FUR!

Who doesn’t love fur?!  Faux fur, come on now- let’s not be crazy!  This super cozy, soft and comfy vest I got from Sofi Stella Boutique is divine!  I catch myself petting my vest during the day. Is that weird? That’s weird… It’s just so perfect!

I can think of so many things to pair this with and I bet you can too. If you haven’t heard the latest buzz- ok there are so many this fall- but, LAYERS are everywhere!  Layers always look lovely. As I peruse through my Glamour and In Style magazines, follow other bloggers and the super fashion icons out there, I see lots of layers. From clothing to jewelry.  Stacks of bangles for the arm candy, layers of necklaces in various sizes, and layers of clothing.  I recall when my hubby used to rock the long sleeved button up under the tee back in college (OMG- that seems like forever ago) but its certainly a trend amongst the ladies now!  And looks super cute, especially with graphic tees, or short sleeved sweaters…add a statement necklace, your favorite denim and you’re set!

I LOVE this dress!  I bought it several months ago when I was still prego and hoped it would fit as I lost my baby weight. I even intended that long ago to wear it for my birthday (I over-plan EVERYTHING) which also made it a nice little weight loss goal for me! I honeslty didn’t think too much about the accessories until I put it on last night and got the “we’re gonna be late!” and threw on a few pieces and ran out the door!  I think anything I would have grabbed though, would’ve looked lovely.
