Shades of Blue
Tuesday, November 29, 2016 8 Comments Images

Bonjour again! I hope this post finds you well and enjoying this beautiful day! Today's post takes us to the beautiful Champs Elysee, one of the most lovely avenues in the world. Champs Elysee, French for Elysian Fields, is this awesome street here in Paris known for it's shopping, theaters, and cafes. It also leads on one end to the Place of Concorde and on the other leads to the Arc de Triomphe. Brod and I wandered all around this beautiful avenue the first day we arrived here in Paris and loved every minute of it. We especially enjoyed walking the Christmas market area that they have set up for the holidays. It is filled with local foods, artisans, crafts, and little goodies, and definitely brings the Christmas spirit to all who are near the Champs Elysee area.

For my look on this chilly Parisian day, I went with some go-to jeans, black booties, and this coat that I have linked below that I love, love, love! I love the mix of colors and it is extremely comfy to wear out and about for hours! Anyhow, for those of you coming to Paris someday soon or not so soon, be sure to put the Champs Elysee on your list, because it is simply lovely and whether it be shopping, eating, or seeing a historic monument, you will have plenty to do here!

Bonjour! Hello from Paris lovelies! Today's post is a quick throwback to my favorite people in the world and I am missing two of these dudes more than ever right now! Not really missing Brod cuz he is here with me, but man I miss my little guys! Anyhow, I hope this post finds you happy and well and I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving! Hopefully you were able to spend some time with those you love most and stuff yourself with lots and lots of food (I know I sure did!). These are some impromptu pics we did as a family, we were dressed up a little for my side of the family pictures, so we thought, why not take some shots of our own little fam! As I sit in my hotel room here in Paris I looking at these pictures, I am reminded of what really matters most! I seriously love my family so much and am so thankful for them! Brod and the boys are my life, and my everything, and no matter what stresses or pressures or difficult situations that come my way, knowing these boys are mine forever gives me the greatest comfort! It's insane how fast time goes by, Hanes looks like a little teenager in these with his casual swag and demeanor, and Arrow gets bigger and smarter and crazier by the day haha! Heading into this holiday season, I hope I can always remember who and what matters most to me and make sure I let them know by my words and actions. I hope you guys all have a wonderful day and thank you so much for your love and support of me and my family!!

The Gift
Wednesday, November 23, 2016 15 Comments Images

Hey guys! Today, I am so excited to be partnering with Macy's, Estee Lauder and Shopstyle to discuss one of my favorite beauty brands, as well as share the perfect holiday gift for friends and family! So, I have used Estee Lauder products now for probably 6 or 7 years and they continue to be a staple in my beauty routine. One product in particular that has been a regular of my routine is the Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation. This foundation stays on all day long, and gives you that flawless look and feel, and is fantastic for photographs. Another product that I have used and love which can be found at Macy's right now is the Advanced Night Repair face serum. This is applied at night after your moisturizer is designed to bring the youthful look and light back to your face. It basically recharges your skin overnight to keep it looking and feeling beautiful and healthy-looking. As I mentioned above, Estee Lauder is a brand that I have been loyal to for years and I feel like their beauty and makeup products are spot on.

So, about that perfect holiday gift?? Well, right now at Macy's they have the coolest offer going on! I have talked before about Macy's being your beauty destination and this is just one more reason that it should be. With any Estee Lauder purchase you get the 29 Beauty Essentials collection for $62, which is valued at $385. This gift collection includes 23 Pure Color Envy Shades (including two full-size lipsticks), a repair serum, and so much more. It also comes in a deluxe travel case which is super handy and easy to carry around. There is so much value in this set and I think it would be the perfect holiday gift for any of your family and friends. Make sure and check out the details in the links below! Thanks you all for following! I love you all!
