Missing Pup
Thursday, December 18, 2014 31 Comments Images


I am sitting here writing this post, ready to go to bed with the biggest feeling of relief ever! My little Nash (our dog) was missing for the past couple hours and I was in tears stressed out of my mind.   He had just got his shots today and was acting funny all day long.  I could tell he was down in the dumps and just did not feel good.  Brody and I were packing and getting ready to go out of town in the morning when we noticed we hadn't seen Nash in a few hours.  We began to call his name,  did the classic ring the door bell, and even got out his favorite treats.  He would normally always come rushing out from wherever he is to immediately to see us.  We waited and waited and honestly heard nothing and that's when my stomach dropped.  He began looking under all the beds, couches and whatever else and finally moved onto outside.  By this time I was in tears and trying to think in my head how in the world we would tell Hanes that Nash was missing.  Brody ran all around the neighborhood and started to drive further outside the neighborhood just in case. I know this may sound cheesy but I said a quick little prayer and continued to cry and stress out.  Nash has been our dog for 4 years now and as much as he drives me crazy sometimes I really do love him so much, and he is Hanes' absolute best friend.  For some reason I had this feeling to go quietly check one more time in Hanes' room (he was asleep), and still nothing.  I searched his closet, basket, teepee, under his bed....and then suddenly I see these little eyes shining all the way up in the box springs of Hanes' bed.  He must have just been really sad about his shots earlier that day and needed to be alone, which is so bizarre becuase that is not at all like Nash. I started crying even harder when I found him and immediately yelled for Brody.  This may sound silly and ridiculous because he is just a dog but suprisingly enough he has a huge spot in our hearts.  I am just relieved I don't have to explain that Nash went missing to Hanes or always wonder where he was. Anyway I know this is a way random post but it was all that I could think about when I sat down to write my daily post to you guys!
I hope you guys have an awesome Thursday and get ready for the crazy weekend ahead! This jacket in today's post is from Francesca's and has been a go-to quite often lately in my closet and not just because it's super cute but because of how incredibly comfy it is.  I mean it's hard to beat a comfy, warm, and cute coat right?

Kid Duties
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 13 Comments Images


I attempted to do some last minute Christmas shopping yesterday and let's just say it was a little insane. Arrow was an angel, which of course is a huge help.  Hanes was as good as a 3 year old can be while shopping, but the crowds were completely nuts. I will say that from now until the New Year, I think I will stick with online shopping.
Besides my insane Christmas shopping experience, I want to introduce all you mommies or mommies-to-be (or ladies that just want a killer bag haha) to this new diaper bag brand
Fawn Design.  Now most of you probably know this already but I am a bag freak, and diaper bags are no exception. I have to say that this diaper bag is truly amazing, I have used it almost every day since I got it, and that is a big deal for me.  I am usually one to constantly be changing bags, but this one has just got me hooked.  It has all the perfect pockets and it can be a backpack or you can wear it crossbody! I wanted to let you know about them because Fawn Design has launched a preorder on Dec. 1st, so you can actually go there now to make a preorder for your diaper bag (HERE).  The bags will be offered at a discount right now, how cool is that?! Hope you all enjoy your Tuesday, thanks again for following!

Holiday Parties
Monday, December 15, 2014 20 Comments Images


If you guys are anything like me right now, then you have the Holiday season in mind on a daily! A huge and fun part of the holiday season are the parties that we attend, and a big question for me when it comes to those parties is always "what do I wear?" To answer that question, I partnered up with Dressbarn for December to give you guys 4 different hostess looks: classic, relaxed, modern, and formal.  I know that I attend so many different kinds of parties throughout the entire holiday season and I feel like each look really fits the type of party I am attending!  I really hope this helps and gives you some examples or ideas of what you could put together as you prepare for your own parties this holiday season! Enjoy!

CLASSIC
  
RELAXED  

 MODERN

FORMAL

classic: jacket, dress, bracelet
casual: top
modern: dress

Greasy Hair Day Tricks
Thursday, December 11, 2014 16 Comments Images


Today's tutorial is all about getting your hair to stay fabulous and full that last day, or the last couple days before you have to wash it again. If you are like me then you don't have the time or desire to wash your hair every single day or even every other day.  If I'm being honest, I rarely wash my hair more than once, maybe twice a week.  I feel like this also helps my hair stay healthier.  One of my biggest tricks to making my hair full and lucious on the last greasy hair day(s), is my blow dryer and diffuser from NuMe.  I will show you in my tutorial how I use the NuMe blow dryer and diffuser to boost my roots and get those kinky waves nice and beachy again. A little note I forgot to add is make sure you are using an oil in your hair right after you are washing it.  The one I use every day is NuMe's argon oil.  This will help your hair stay soft and smooth and get rid of that awful frizz that no one wants.  It also is a good heat-protectant which I'm guessing most every one of you could use.  I do make sure that if I am blow drying my hair though I am using a nice blow dryer that is going to protect your hair and not fry it every time it's dried.  I use this same blow dryer to diffuse it and to dry it straight.
I really hope you guys enjoy the tutorial and it helps you get that full root look, or even a full top knot look like I show in the video!

Bundled
Thursday, December 11, 2014 25 Comments Images



Hey ya'll! As it continues to get colder, I am constantly on the look out for comfortable, cozy, and fun clothes for my little dudes. I found one of the best places to find quality cold-weather clothes and shoes for my boys is Nordstrom. Living in Utah during the winter, they definitely need their fair share of warm clothes, and Nordstrom has such a great selection of awesome brands and styles. Hanes and I had a blast just walking around town and goofing off, while Arrow was enjoying his winter nap. I hope you enjoy this post, and make sure to keep your little ones bundled up! For those of you who don't have cold winters....I hate you haha! Just kidding, I'm just a little jelly of warm winters. Have a great Thursday!

Men's Gift Guide
Wednesday, December 10, 2014 8 Comments Images


I have been trying to answer questions lately on every platform and a question that I have been asked a lot is what to get my husband/boyfriend for Christmas.  I tried to come up with a good variety of items below from clothes, to shoes, to accessories, and even electronics.  I know the iRobot may seem a little out of place for a second but I can promise you it's not.  Do not ask me why, but my husband is obsessed with vacuuming.  I can't remember the last time I had to vacuum because he is so OCD about it. I mean I am not complaining, it's just why not make it easier on him by getting an iRobot Roomba. I would leave this little robot cleaning my floor all day and not have to worry about my husband doing it the second he gets home from work.  Heck, even better, I could even have it vacuum while I am gone during the day.

Kitchen Time
Monday, December 08, 2014 22 Comments Images


I know it may not seem like I have as much of a passion for home items and decorating, because I focus mostly on fashion and beauty, but there is something about it that just pulls me right in and excites me! I love shopping for home items, searching pinterest for inspiration, and swooning over pieces to redo my home with. I thought it would be fun to do a gift guide for a kitchen/dining room lover (I have been really into this) or a chef for that matter (I wish I was more of this haha).  I found the cutest dining set on Macy's that I had to share with you guys! I love the fact that this set isn't too fancy to use on an everyday basis, but you can also dress it up enough to have a nice dinner at home with friends or family.  I made a board of pieces from Macy's I think would be perfect for gifting a chef, or someone who simply loves to cook. I hope you enjoy it! Let me know if you guys would like to see more home posts because I'm hoping I can line up a few more!
