April Beauty Favs

beauty favorites

1. IT Cosmetics CC Cream : Yup,I know I am late to the game but I couldn’t help but share of course! I was so stuck on my go-to Makeup Forever foundation, I didnt want to change. Finally took the plunge and decided to try the CC cream. This stuff is amazing and cuts my routine time in half! And my skin still looks fresh and clean. SPF50 is a huge must have !

2. BabyBliss Curling Wand: I can create beachy S-waves within a few seconds per section. I have medium-long hair and lots of it, and I can style my whole head within 20 minutes. I love this wand! And it rarely catches or breaks my hair. Totally affordable compared to other brands.

3. VS Love Spell Perfume : Absolutely love this scent. This was my first VS perfume purchase, and I must say I am pleased. I use the lotion and perfume together, and the scent lasts all day indoors. I love fruity scents so the guava is what attracted me to try it out.

4. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion:  THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING THING IVE EVER USED.  The first night I used it, it was a little messy but I didnt apply correctly. I put a dab on two spots that were creeping up… both acne spots were gone the next day!  Its pretty much a magic cream for pimples!

5. Rodial Snake Serum:  This stuff is AMAZE!!!  inspired by the effects of the temple viper venom, smoothes the look of skin and reduces the visual appearance of wrinkles.

6. NYX Matte Lip Cream:  I love the vibrant color of this product! I have received so many compliments when I wear it because even though it is a brighter color, it still makes a difference to your look! I love it! If it lasted a little longer it would be perfect but i mean for the price…I won’t complain much about it!

7. PUR Foundation Brush: I have been looking for a foundation brush to replace my dying kabuki. This makes putting on my foundation easy and smooth. If you don’t want to go out and buy a set, this is a good choice.

8. Marc Jacobs Highlighter : I absolutely love this product. I use it over my foundation and can see a difference immediately. It gives such a beautiful, natural glow. The coverage lasts all day and smells amazing.

What are some beauty products are a loving?

Casual Metallics

Monday, we meet again! I hope y’all had an amazing Mothers Day weekend with all your family and friends. I had such a great day yesterday being “pampered” with a makeover from my son, brunch with family and of course a fun trip to Target! Couldnt think of a better day 🙂

I have been loving the warmer weather lately and wanted to share these metallic shorts that I cant stop wearing!

casual metallic shorts

Shorts // Chambray Top // Sneakers // Clutch // Hair Band

When I first found these shorts, I knew I HAD to have them. Metallic, silver & pockets??….I will take five pairs!!! I have already worn them several times and every time someone stops to ask where I got them! AND they are under $20!!

I initially wore an oversized sweater back in March but totally forgot to snap some photos. With the warmer weather, they will still be on repeat and can be styled so many different ways! For a more casual look, I paired them with my favorite chambray top. This pink clutch adds a pop of color and of course you cant go wrong with a touch of leopard print. I spent the day shopping so the hair was up for the day. Another touch of leopard print never hurts so I slid on my go-to headband!

I also styled them awhile back with this amazing graphic tee! This tee couldn’t explain my motto in life more perfectly!!

I hope y’all have an amazing week babes!!

Blogger Happy Hour

 

Happy Friday! We made it y’all!

I never thought I would see this day… I have been pretty much hating life all week due to this viral infection. I was told I was “borderline” strep but all strep tests came back negative. Basically, you have it but dont get prescribed any meds. So it just has to run its course which to me is WAY worse! Luckily, I think I am on the mends and coming out it farely quickly. I havent had a drink in a week which is a long time for this momma lol

On to todays post, I wanted to share a fun blogger happy hour we had a couple weeks ago. I wanted to get a group of Dallas Blogger Momma’s together to celebrate each other “kid free”!!! I love all of these babes and I am so glad they were all up to meet up and have some drinks. I wanted to get together at one of my favorite places in Dallas, HG Supply. They are known for their rooftop patio and happy hour drinks. THE BEST!!! And let me tell you, the drinks for this event didnt disapoint!!!

It was such a fun night full of laughs, pretty ladies and lots of yummy drinks flowing! Its always a good idea to get the momma’s out of the house and around a fun atmosphere like HG Supply!

I cant brag enough about HG Supply Co. It has the best views and is the perfect spot for all the girls to gather around and gossip. And with Mothers Day around the corner, it is the perfect place to bring Mom and enjoy the view of Dallas. I know I will be enjoying Sunday with a beverage and a patio.

I hope you have a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mommies!!!

Do you have plans for Mothers Day?

Gifts For The Graduate

Happy Wednesday!

Today’s post is a little short and sweet… I have a viral infection which feels like strep. Trying to takes meds and rest as much as possible because this thing aint no joke!!! Ugh! My son graduated from Pre-K last night and I was slightly a hot mess but I definitely played it off like a champ. When I started to tear up, I would run over to the other side of the room like I was going to take a picture… while wiping tears at the same time. 🙂

Speaking of graduation, I wanted to share some gift ideas for the special grad in your life! I have two cousins BOTH graduating this year and they are completely different. I had to come up with some ideas that I know they both would like which wasnt easy. Here are some quick and simple things to make your gift hunting easier….

gifts for the graduate

1. V-Neck Tee :  These are the best shirts and I have them in 3 different colors! I wear them to bed, to the store, Saturday tee-ball games and literally everywhere! They would make amazing gifts. And under $30!

2. Wireless Activity Tracker:  This sleek, sporty wristband motivates you to achieve your fitness goals by calculating steps taken, calories burned, elevation climbed and distance traveled throughout the day. It literally does it all! Records workouts, shows real-time stats on screen, count hours of sleep and wakes you up in the morning!

3. Cuff Bracelet:  This statement bracelet is gorgeous and can be dressed up or down. Any fabulous female would love this as a gift. The filigree design looks amazing with the mixed metals!

4. Portable Bluetooth Speaker:   This portable speaker is great for summer time with all the fun pool parties and bbq nights. Its water resistant and will pair with bluetooth to make it wireless. Perfect for any occasion.

5. Personlized Planner:  The thing I love about this planner is it can be customized for anyone. Not only does it have a marble case but it has different tabs for staying organized. And its under  $40!

6. Amazon Gift Card:  To be honest, I think every graduate wants one thing… money! I am not one to just give a card with money and be done! I have to do something a little more thoughtful so gift cards are always a great idea. And I am pretty sure you can find any and everything on Amazon!

7. Graduation Wine Set:  Who doesnt love some wine?!? Give them something they can enjoy x 3!!  They can be customized for any holiday or event!

8. Barrington Duffel Bag: This is such a classy and sophisticated bag that is perfect for travel. These can also be personalized and customized with great prints and a monogram!

What are some exciting events you have coming up in May?

Floral Layered Romper

Happy Monday y’all!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and had a great time with all the Cinco De Mayo celebrations! We ate LOTS of tacos and then continued the celebration Saturday night with MORE fajitas and mararitas! Guess thats what you do when your husband is all about the FIESTA!!!I actually took a little break from social media this weekend which was very refreshing. Sometime you just need to unplug and enjoy the moments with family and friends.

I wanted to share this floral romper I wore to the blogger happy hour last week….

ROMPER , Sold out  (Similar, Similar)// WEDGES // HAT // CLUTCH // SUNGLASSES 

I wore this to our blogger happy hour we had last week. It was a fun group of local Dallas Bloggers who are not only the prettiest group of ladies ever but they are also ALL moms!! I will share more of our fun little get together later in the week.

Rompers just have a fun, playful vibe to them and I couldn’t wait to style this one when the weather finally warmed up!  The halter detail makes it a perfect springtime transition piece and I just love the floral print!  This romper has everything I love in a spring/summer outfit. I am a fan of the no fuss appeal of a romper…easy to throw on, minimal accessories, paired with a wedge or strappy heel and be out the door!  I can’t believe how much that I love this on my short physique. It is the perfect length too. Unfortunately, it is sold out but I have linked very similar and affordable ones. I am hoping it will come back in stock very soon!!!

Hope you have an awesome week!
