Navy & Pink
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 19 Comments Images

Hello there all you fabulous peeps, I hope you are having a wonderful week!  I am having one of those days where I am just so grateful to be here and feel so blessed to have everything that I do.  It may sound cheesy but I love my boys so much and I feel like the luckiest wife and mommy in the world to be blessed with them.  Little man was really sick the past week or so and it broke my heart to see him suffer.  I just wanted to hold and snuggle him all day and watch Monsters Inc. with him.  I love him so much and would do anything to make him feel better, it makes me really grateful for my mom and really realize how much she loves me.  Anyways it was a sappy post today but that is what is on my mind so that is what you get to hear.  I love you all and hope you all stay away from nasty sickness, it's the pits!

How She Wears It
Monday, February 25, 2013 19 Comments Images


I got to team up with my sweet friend Casey Leigh again and we decided to do a little fashion segment for you! Once a month we are going to be picking a picture from pinterest as inspiration and adding our own personal style to it, HERE is our first pick!  I'm a little jealous of Casey because she has the nice warmth weather going for her while I still have a little chill going on.  I love love anything to do with maxi's, they may be my favorite piece of clothing to wear.  They are so comfy and chic and can be worn for almost any occasion! To see more pics of the darling Casey make sure you check out her blog and follow along!

Sequins and Bow Ties
Friday, February 22, 2013 33 Comments Images

I want to take this post today to tell all my followers how much I love you guys!! All your sweet comments and emails is what keeps me going, you have no idea how much they mean to me! I am so sorry if I don't get to answering every once in a while but I promise I read them and appreciate them! 
I actually made a new page called the FAQ page which answers to a ton of questions and emails that I get asked frequently.  I hope this helps and if you ever have a question make sure you check it out to see if the answer is there. I will add more questions and answers as the time goes on too! 
I love doing outfit posts everyday and I stay true to myself and mix up the style like I have always loved! I am the kind of girl that has a hard time answering the question, what is your style?? I don't have a specific style that I love, I wear what I feel good in and love trying all the fun trends! I hope you guys enjoy that about me and try it along with me. Along the same lines I have had people ask about if i choose what I wear, ummmm YES!!! If I am given anything to wear it is my choice, I choose what I wear and I style everything I wear.  I will always stay true to my style and what I wear because that's what you amazing followers want to see, right!?

So onto this outfit, many of you might have seen this skirt in one of my Daily Dish posts.  I saw THIS sequin skirt a while ago on pinterest and fell in love with it! I was so so excited when I saw this skirt and for a decent price, I knew I had to have it! There was no way I was going to spending $300 on a sequin skirt because it's not something you can wear everyday haha 
I also am wearing one of my absolute favorite new bracelets from Poshlocket!  Isn't the clasp on it so cute?  I haven't seen anything like it before and I love that!! Same with the classic gold chain necklace, it's a must in your jewelry box. I hope you guys enjoy and have a fantastic weekend and know I love you all and am grateful for you! 
p.s. this was out Sunday look, we are a little behind haha

I have a tutorial for you today about teeth whitening with the fabulous Whitening Lightning, once you try this system you will never go back to anything else, it is simply amazing!! The tutorial is a little awkward because I tried to talk while whitening haha bad idea!  But i wanted to show you in a tutorial because I figured it would make more sense and be humerous at the same time haha hope you all enjoy! I forgot to say in the video that the biggest surprise to me was that I have had no sensitivity at all! I have used it twice now and still nothing, that may just be my teeth but I was shocked!!

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 347 Comments Images

Yet again my child looks like he's at least 2 haha I need to start dressing him in onsies and one pieces or something, anything to slow this little child down.  I love this little nugget and if you guys could see all the new little things he is learning everyday you would die! One day I am going to video him and put them all on here for you guys to see.  His newest thing is jumping (more like frolicking but we can saying jumping haha) He goes around jumping everywhere and making monkey sounds because that's the lately animal sound he has learned.  Anyways he's pretty special to me and I have a hard time not being one of those braggy moms but sometimes I just have to have a little bragging moment to all you sweet friends of mine!

Tangled Tantrum
Tuesday, February 19, 2013 10 Comments Images

I have had numerous of emails and questions about what I use on little mans hair so I though I would finally fill you in! I have been using the products Tangled Tantrum for a few months now and it is my fav! It smells divine and the paste has the perfect amount of hold for Hanes' hair. It doesn't get that sticky feel that a lot of others give his hair, it keeps it smooth but in place and out of his eyes.  The best part is that it is specially made for little ones, it has aloe and chamomille and all the tangled product are Paraben-free and alcohol-free! I hope you all enjoy!!
Happy Tuesday everyone!!!
