Future's So BRIGHT, I Gotta Wear SHADES!

Sunday, May 19, 2013

Hi My Loves!!!

This is how to keep a toddler happy while shopping.....


We try on a bunch of sunglasses and look in the mirror and say, "I LOOK GOOD!" Haha!! Phoenix loves trying on sunglasses, if only we could actually keep them on him. He just likes taking them on and off at the moment :) 


He picked all of these out himself and his favorite were the blue ones. Upside down is the new trend DON'TCHA KNOWWWWW????


Love how he is rocking the Old Navy hoodie at Old Navy.

And while we were checking out I happened to be wearing an Abercrombie & Fitch shirt and the young guy at the register asked me if I had hear about the latest drama with that company. I had no clue why he brought it up until I looked down at my shirt haha! He said he had already donated all of him Abercrombie clothes and would never step foot in the store again.

What's your take on it??

Thanks so much for watching!!

Bow & Flower Phone Case!

Friday, May 17, 2013

Hi My Loves!!!

So a few weeks ago I recieved this lovely phone case in the mail from my lovely friend Cole. We have been internet friends now for a good few years and she makes these herself. She is so talented and patient haha!! I can't imagine how long these must take to make. 

Check out her Facebook page here:

She customizes them to your taste and can do a range of phone cases, so if you like what you see then definitely check out her page and see what you can both create ;) Everyone needs a little sparkle in their life after all!!!



Here it is on my sad phone..... luckily I just got a new phone yesterday as we FINALLY got an upgrade haha!!! SO I will probably be giving this one to my sister incase she ever gets an iphone ;) Note: dropping phones on the cement is not good :)



I know a few of you had asked where I got this case when I showed it so now you know!!

Be sure to check out Cole's blog and You Tube channel too ;) Tell her I sent you!

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!!

And incase you haven't seen my latest Jewelry Haul....

Happy Mother's Day & Lily's 8 Month's Old!

Monday, May 13, 2013

Hi My Loves!!!

First of all I wanted to say......


We hope you all have a lovely Mother's Day spent with your most precious people :) Being a Mom is the most rewarding thing I have ever experienced and I'm so truly blessed to have my babies.

Also.... Lily's 8 months old today too!!! So Happy 8 Month Birthday to Lily Bug! In honor of her 8 month birthday I thought it was a perfect opportunity to do a blog post all about her cuteness...

Lily wanted to show off her new goodies from Sassy and Sweet Bowtique. These are seriously so cute and the tutu and matching headband shown below has got to be my favorite ;) What a little beauty Lily looks in this picture!! Especially with her tongue out haha!!!




Here's everything I got. They all fit super nice and comfy on her head and have a nice felt material on the back of the bow that lays on her head so there is nothing uncomfortable on her head :) 
(Most important thing to me)


This is is for the 4th of July.... festive!!!




This tutu is "tutu" cute :) You can expect her to be wearing this on our upcoming vacation for sure!! Lily's going to be a little fashionista in California!





I thought these were just way too cute not to share with all of you. I know many of you have little girls or baby girls and I must admit they look pretty cute with a headband and tutu on :)

Don't forget to check out her Facebook page and "like" it.... tell her I sent you!

Thanks for reading!!

Covergirl + Olay Concealer Balm Review

Friday, May 10, 2013


Hi My Loves!!!

Today I will be doing a review of the new Covergirl + Olay Concealer Balm. The color I picked up is Fair and I paid $7.99 for it at Target.

The packaging reminds me of an old school concealer like the one my Mom used to use when I was young. It's just in a "lipstick" form.








When you first apply it under the eyes it's really nice. Has good coverage, a nice consistency. It's thick and creamy and blends out easily. The color was perfect for me and I was really impressed. I applied the rest of my makeup and I noticed once I was all done that I already had some creasing under my eyes. It had already started settling into my fine lines.... this is where it goes down hill.

A few hours later I walked my a mirror and glanced at it and oh nuts was it a horrible sight. Where the concealer was applied, it was all splotchy and oily. It had no coverage any more and the concealer had basically just separated completely. It looked so bad!!! It was also majorly set into every little line under my eyes. NOT GOOD AT ALL :(

I would not recommend this concealer at all. I don't think it's really any good for any one. If you have lines, it will settle into them. If you are oily it will break apart and not last throughout the day.... it basically just does everything that you don't want a concealer to do which is such a shame because at first it looked so nice and was so nice to apply. This was a major dissapointment for me. 

I say save your money and spend it on the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Under Eye Concealer.... I still haven't found one to beat that yet.

Hope this helps :)


Need a Smile???

Saturday, May 4, 2013

Hi My Loves!!

I was going through some of my pictures and found myself smiling the whole way through. There is nothing like a child's beautiful face to make you smile. My babies are the light of my life, the apples of my eye and what I wake up so happy for, everyday. I hope if you need a little pick me up or someone to put a smile on your face, these pictures of my little angels help :)

Enjoy!

Here's my little monkey with his hair combed all snazzy after his bath :)


Driving his friends car at playgroup.... he's an excellent driver!


Gotta love when they put on Mama's shoes and walk around in their pj's and huge boots :)



"I look good!'


Just chillin'


My little Lily Bug having some snuggle time with Mama :) 


"YEAH BABY" (He loves his turbie twisty)


"Oh Me?"

Look at this little beauty! She justs melts my heart :)




Right in the middle of a tickle session :)


My favorite pj's of Lily's. They are so cute ;)


I love these pictures of Lily sitting in her big girl chair :) She hasn't quite figured out the flash on the camera yet (she always looks like she's sleepy haha!)



What a big girl!!!



Look at all that hair.... he is so cute!!!


Phoenix's first cheesecake and a cookie at Auntie BS's house. She spoils him :) He liked it but not as much as the cookie haha!


If those didn't make you smile.... this one has to! How can this little face not make you instantly grin? 


People ask how I stay so happy..... it's because I get to look at these beautiful faces every single day, all day long. They just make me so happy and I feel so very blessed to have such healthy, happy babies :) Life is great!

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!
