Dior Beauty with Nordstrom


Today's post is all about beauty (my favorite), and it's with Dior's beauty section from Nordstrom.  Whenever I go to Nordstrom I find myself wandering the makeup sections, sometimes for hours, and the Dior sections is definitely one of my favs.  I love Nordstrom because you can try whatever you want and if you don't end up loving it, you can just bring it back.  This is a big deal for me because, at times,  I can be quite indecisive.  I tend to buy 90% of my items from Nordstrom because of how amazing they are to work with.
On to this lipstick, if you're a lipstick lover like me and haven't tried this Dior lipstick yet, you must! It's the creamiest lipstick ever (which I love), yet it still stays on your lips all day.  Usually the lipstick that stays on all day ends up drying out my lips and I hate that. This lipstick actually moisturized my lips instead of drying them out. It's definitely a favorite of mine and this nude color that I am wearing in my pictures is perfect for everyday.  Hope you enjoy!

Elegance and Beauty in Tory Burch Fragrance


For all of you moms out there, and especially those who have newborns, you will understand what I mean when I say I feel like a mess most of the time—and the best way for me to feel more like myself is by wearing my favorite perfume. The Tory Burch Eau De Parfum has a fresh citrus and floral scent that is just perfect for summer. And I love the inspiration behind the bottle. It, of course, has the signature fretwork that is a common element in Tory’s designs, but it was inspired by the elegant glass bottles on her mother’s vanity. An entire scented bath and body line complements the collection, as well as a capsule collection of different beauty items and accessories.

Date Night


The hubs and I got to go on a little date the other night and I will be honest, it felt a little weird to not be in mommy mode for two hours.  I was a little hesitant to leave Arrow, but after a little bit I realized that it was well needed.  We are lucky enough to have grandma's and grandpa's that love our dudes and are always there when we need them.  Anyways, to get to the point, this was my date night outfit and it felt a little weird to throw on heels again.  It's good to get dressed up still, every now and then, and this was my choice for our night out. Hope you enjoy!

Bedroom Accents


I've had some requests lately to show more of my home so I thought I would move onto my bedroom next.  I like my house to feel cozy and welcoming while still fitting our style. I have a tendency to choose a few classic pieces and mix them with some fun accent pieces to spice things up a little bit.  I feel like those select accent pieces are what bring the personality out in the room. Some of my absolute favorite pieces are these ones from Lulu & Georgia in our bedroom.  This rug is a piece that I could move into any bedroom in my house and love, and the same goes for these side tables.  I also wanted to find a pillow that would just give me that pop of color that the bed needed and this one was perfect.  I'm really happy with how it turned out and hope you guys enjoy this little look into my home.  Have a happy Tuesday ya'll!
p.s. Use the code "CARALOREN20" to get 20% off at Lulu & Georgia.
