Must Have
Thursday, March 26, 2015 10 Comments Images

Today's post is a look I wear quite often...a casual outfit, with my go-to makeup, and a nice statement bag.  I have always found that the pieces I end up buying at Nordstrom are the pieces I wear and use time and time again, they are the pieces I keep forever.  It is one of those places that I know without a doubt I can always find something. 
Nordstrom actually just recently came out with a new YSL collection that is beyond amazing.  I have always loved YSL's lipglosses and lipssticks, but this new one that I have below has been on repeat every day for the past week.  It gives my lips enough color but keeps it as glossy as I need! I would say it's a must have item in my handbag/diaper bag.

Self Rule
Tuesday, March 24, 2015 22 Comments Images

Today's campaign is one that I am so excited to share, it is Rachel Roy's Self Rule.  If you haven't watched this video about what Rachel Roy has done for national women's day you really need to. Rachel Roy is celebrating Self Rule with a limited edition graphic tee with net proceeds donated to Step Up, a mini film doc directed by the Mundo Sisters and a 30 days of Self Rule quote campaign on Instagram.
As women today I feel like we beat ourselves up over the silliest things, and as awful as it is, some women like to look down on others as well.  I have always been the type of person that is hard on myself and for some reason I have learned the past few years to ease up a little and learn that no one is perfect, including myself. As much as I want to always please everyone, it is just not possible.  We should really just try to lift everyone up and look for the positives in everyone.  I feel like social media makes that a little hard sometimes, but I know it's possible.  Love you for who you are and realize there is no one else like you! I know this probably sounds a little cheesy but I feel like this campaign was just what I needed right now, and I hope it will help some of you as well!
I'm sporting my Self Rule top in today's post with my boys. It was a gorgeous day so we decided to take a walk at the park after the gym that morning.  This weather makes it easier to be in good spirits and love life! I hope you all have a great Wednesday and love your self...Self Rule!!

Rockin Rimmel
Monday, March 23, 2015 15 Comments Images

I was so excited when Rimmel reached out to me because I have loved their products ever since I can remember. Rimmel was one of the first makeup brands I started to ever wear.  I had tried some of their lip glosses before but I hadn't yet tried the Stay Glossy lip gloss, and let me just say....it is amazing! You honestly will have thought that you just spent $30 for a new lip gloss when it is actually nowhere near as expensive as that. I wanted to do a bold and eclectic look and I was really happy with the outcome.  I used one of the scandal eye eyeshadow sticks for my shadow and I loved how it gave me a bold, yet simple and smokey eye.  I listed the Rimmel products on the bottom that I used to create this look and I really hope you enjoy! Hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!

Arrow's Big Boy Nursery Giveaway
Sunday, March 22, 2015 31 Comments Images

We decided when we moved that we wanted to start fresh and redo the house how we had always really wanted.  When we got married almost 6 years ago we were dirt poor and had no money to spend on anything for a home. I'm not kidding when I say we had absolutely no money, I sometimes wonder how the heck we did things for the first few years we were married, but I wouldn't trade those years for anything because we had so much fun and had each other. We have the most amazing family and friends, and we were given most all of the furniture that was in our home.  We had kept all that furniture for the past five years and we finally decided since we were moving we would pass it all down to someone else that needed it. I had some friends and families that were having babies and they needed my old baby stuff, so it worked perfectly.
I was approached by Oilo Studio right before we were about to move about helping design bedrooms for the boys, and I was thrilled! I knew it would be a perfect match.  It has been so much fun to be able to work with all of these companies (mostly Oilo), and come up with my dream nursery for my little Arrow.  I am so grateful for all of these companies that wanted to be involved and I couldn't be more thrilled about how Arrow's nursery turned out.
Now to make things even better these companies that are involved (including my store Cara Loren Shop) are giving away items from all their stores. This is probably one of the biggest giveaways I have ever held and I am so excited about it!! Make sure you check the list below and enter, you will not want to miss out!

Glasses are the New Handbag
Saturday, March 21, 2015 42 Comments Images

Something that I always like to have on hand, or at least near by, is a fabulous pair of reading glasses.  They are the perfect accessory to any outfit, and one of the easiest ways to fix a makeup-less face as well! This Burberry pair of glasses is a pair I wear the most out of any glasses.com.  They are simple, yet have those perfect little details that make them special. And let's be honest....I am a Burberry lover! Whether you wear prescriptions or not, glasses are ones of those pieces that are a must!

p.s. When you go to glasses.com and you put in discount code "CL20OFF" you get $20 off a $100 purchase of all fashion brands. This code is good until the 28th so have fun shopping and have a great weekend!

Ted on Repeat
Friday, March 20, 2015 25 Comments Images

There is something about Ted Baker's clothes that make me feel like the best me every time I wear them.  His pieces are ones that I always keep forever and go to quite often. I have to say that this outfit is no different, the second I saw these pieces I knew I had to have them. These heels are possibly the most fabulous heels I have ever put on my feet! They are beyond amazing and so flattering, I feel like I need this same heel in 5 different colors! Anyways, I will stop babbling on about boring clothes but this one is definitely a favorite!
