Quinny Park Day

I wanted to give you a little update on our progressive love with the Quinny Buzz Xtra stroller.  We have used this stroller way more than we ever used any other strollers already.  I'm guessing the reason for that is how easy and convenient it is and that Hanes likes it.  I am a little worried about when baby #2 comes.....he may have a little issue sharing but he will just have to learn.  I mentioned last time how the Maxi Cosi AP car seat attaches in the stroller and it comes with the pieces to attach it with.  I will make sure I show you in a post how it attaches so don't worry about that. Another convenience with this stroller is that there are multiple attachment options for car seats.
We made a little video below of a typical day at the park.  Hanes get's pretty stir crazy if we don't get out of the house at least once each day (I'm sure all of you know with a 2 yr old know this), so his favorite thing to do is play at the park.  The day consists of smashing "buggies," throwing rocks, and getting crocodiles with sticks.  You can see in the video that Elmo has to be with him non-stop, but he shares the stroller well with Elmo so there is a little hope haha! I hope you guys like the video!

Drawn to Red


For some reason I am always drawn to red and when I saw this dress I knew I had to have it.  It's perfect for a preggo like me, or for a non preggo gal.  I actually wore this in Cali one of the days I was there and loved it.  It will definitely be something that goes on repeat in my closet.  Being pregnant this time around I am all about dresses and keep my eye out for anything that I think will work. I know that will be all I want to wear when the heat comes in strong so I figured I may as well start collecting now.

Spring Makeup Look with Temptu


I am so excited to be starting a fun little collaboration that I am doing with Temptu airbrush.  I honestly use this system non-stop and I LOVE the results I get with it.  It always gives such a dewy, fresh look that I cannot get without the Temptu.  I am going to be sharing a spring look with you today that is bronzed and blushed to the max.  It's perfect for spring and to help your skin feel lively and glowing.  I talk about all the colors I use in the tutorial, but the main colors today are the "Blushing Coral" blush and the "Gold" highlighter.  You can now get these in a duo pack from Temptu and I promise you will love them together.  Make sure you check out the tutorial and follow along.  I hope it helps and gives you some inspiration for spring looks.
P.S. You can get 20% off any airbrush system when you use code "cara20".

Just a Simple Look


This is a total relaxed and simple outfit but definitely something that I would wear on a daily basis.  During pregnancy it's hard to want to buy crazy pieces just for the little time that you are pregnant, so these simple pieces have been perfect.  This maternity skirt has been worn at least a dozen times already and will be worn much more.  It's definitely worth buying those few basic pieces during pregnancy.  Oh and yeah little Hanes' outfit....pretty stinking cute right!?  I wish I had it in my size.

Shop Le Tote


I am so excited to be wearing pieces from Le Tote today.  Le Tote is an amazing fashion rental service that has a lot of upscale brands and designers that I love.  What is so cool is that Le Tote allows you to get items at such an awesome discount, up to 80% off the retail price. Something to note that I didn't understand at first was that non-members will be able to purchase items, but may not be able to get the VIP price offered to the monthly members.  I'm just going to give you a little explanation of how the Le Tote membership works because I was a little confused at first.  I hope this helps....

Pay $49/month and you do the following:
1. Add items to your virtual closet. The more items you heart, the more likely 
you are to receive items you really want.
2. When you get the tote of 3 garments and 2 accessories, wear as many times a 
month as you want. Keep it as long as you want. No return dates and no late 
fees. If you loved something and wanted to purchase, simply hang on to it, 
and our system will charge you for it. 
3. When you’re ready for another tote, simply send all the items back in the pre-
paid envelope. 
4. Then, we’ll send you another tote immediately

p.s. I have found that a good amount of pieces have still worked while being pregnant but make sure you look at sizing just in case! I'm sure all your preggo ladies already go through this but I just wanted to give you a little heads up!

Cool Kid


I am going to apologize right now because this post is going to be short.  I just flew in and all I want to do is play with my baby boy, so that is exactly what I am going to do.  I hope you all have a happy hump day and enjoy this post where Hanes is a total hipster...and I love it. 

p.s. The Shopbop sale only goes until tomorrow so don't miss out!
