Father’s Day Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again—time to celebrate all the very special dads in your life 🙂

Of course, with this comes hours of trying to figure out the perfect gift for someone who already has everything (or says he wants nothing) but deserves all the love in the world.

OK, all the love in the world might be a tad difficult to fit into a box, but don’t worry—for all the dads, daddys, daddys-to-be, papas, and grandpas out there, I’ve got you covered with some great Father’s Day gift ideas for just about any kind of dad.

Happy shopping and Happy Father’s Day, Dads!

Fathers Day Gift Guide

Beer Carrier //  Waterproof Jacket // Nixon Watch // Cornhole Watch // Nike Dry-FIT Hat // VANS Sneakers // Shave Station // Athletic Shorts // YETI Cooler

We usually do lunch or dinner with my parents and then we end up at the park to play. This year, I am surprising both my dad and my husband with a day of golf! (Me and my mom will be riding in the golf carts lol )… I also will be snatching a couple of these gift ideas above for both of them. That shave station is calling my hubby’s name 🙂

What are your plans for Father’s Day?

Step Into My Office… The Big Reveal!!

Happy Wednesday Babes!!!

I hope ya’ll had an amazing Memorial Day Weekend! Our’s was FULL of outdoor fun and lots of family time! I recently bought an inflatable water slide that was a huge hit! The kids were on it all day, every day which in turn left the adults to chill and relax!! Unfortunately, there is a weight limit on the slide so none of the adults actually used it but I see that rule breaking in the future.. we did not want to break it Day 1 🙂

As promised, today I am sharing a project that only took a year to complete! After many months of procrastination and trying to figure out my vision, I am sharing my new home office! But I do have a confession, after looking at pictures I realized I want to do some painting and add a couple more tweaks but I am very happy with the final product!! 🙂

ENJOY!!!!

I am so happy with how everything turned out! All the decor came from different places but all seemed to come together so well. I obviously am a huge fan of color and prints and that is what makes me the happiest! That was my main focus when it came to the decor! Vibrant, colorful, feminine, fun and exciting! Words to describe my dream office!

I hope you love it as much as I do! Hopefully it doesnt take me a whole year to put the actual “final touches” on it 🙂

Have an awesome rest of the week!

Jumpsuit Obsession

Yup…… another jumpsuit! 🙂

They are just that good and are pretty much an obsession! Especially if they involve stripes and are under $40!!!! Ill take 20 of them!

 I have to talk about this striped culotte jumpsuit!

striped jumpsuit

Jumpsuit // Neck Scarf (Similar) // Shoes // Hat // Sunglasses

I actually tried this jumpsuit on at Dillards while trying on some Easter dresses. I always have the best luck at Dillards! I didnt end up buying it but regretted my choice later on. I decided to order it and so glad I did! The wide leg culottes cut and square neckline is chic and sophisticated and easier than you think to wear! I am wearing a size 6 but probably should have ordered a size 8 for a more tailored look. I paired it with a fun neck scarf, panama hat and my go-to strappy sandals!

Being short and stocky build, I never think jumpsuits are flattering for my body type but I think its all about the print and the cut of the material. Vertical stripes are ALWAYS a good idea. Horizontal stripes can shorten your figure and make you look wider than you are… trust me (homecoming dress circa 2001) Anything with a tie-waist helps accentuate your curves and actually gives you a waist. I am literally the same size width wise and dont really have a waist. I love the hem line on this jumpsuit because it breaks off my torso from my bottom half! AND it has pockets… AHHMAZING!!!

I think it would flattering on any body type! And anything from Dillards is a WIN!

What are your thoughts on jumpsuits?

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?

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?
