Lovely and long. My favorite loose ringlets.

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

These loose ringlets are my favorittttttte. I love them because I can let my hair air-dry and then just go over the top. After adding in shine serum, I brush through the ringlets and let them blend together with my natural waves underneath! Theses ringlets also create the illusion that your hair is longer than it looks. You can watch the tutorial below to see how easy it is! Also, sometimes I have a hard time keeping a straight face for pictures, but I'm getting better at it. 

Thriller Zumba Party

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Halloween is almost here, but I've been eating treats all month long! To burn off some of that sugar, I thought I'd share one of my favorite Halloween Zumba routines courtesy of my sister Stephanie. She's been a Zumba instructor for years and I love her Thriller routine! She's the cute blonde in the front with all the moves :) Happy dancing! 

Our first family trip!

Monday, October 27, 2014

Take me back! We had such a good time on our first family trip to Florida. It was so fun to have a full week of family time and so many firsts with Kenzie. Traveling with a baby is hard, but I loved seeing her little smiles as she played with Kellen on the beach and at different parks. 

Here are my favorite places to visit and things to do in Florida: Daytona Beach, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, The Harry Potter parks, and Mickey's not so scary Halloween party. You can see all our pics below! 

Running Into Fall

Saturday, October 25, 2014

I love staple clothing items that stand the test of time. This outfit is one of my favorites because it's so versatile! These long boots are from Arizona Jean company and are a steal. The top is from Brass Plum. I'ts long, comfy and I've worn it in summer, fall, and winter. The leggings are from Lulu Lemon, which is a bit pricier, but I've used them for everything! They're actually athletic pants made of incredibly thick spandex material. They're great for any season and I swear more flattering than regular leggings. I consider certain clothing pieces an investment--these leggings are one of those pieces. If you can wear it to work out in, as leggings, throughout your pregnancy, and all year long, it's worth it!

Reverse Front Braid

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

GUYS, this is my first hair tutorial, so please, be easy on me! I wanted to share this reverse front braid because it's my go-to hair style (sometimes I call it the "Elsa hair braid"). You can do it easily on straight hair, curly hair, wet hair, or pretty much any hair type. It's versatile, it's great to get hair out of your face, and I love how it looks. Try it out and let me know what you think. Enjoy! 

Three Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Hello! It's October first and I cannot believe fall is here. It's time to pull out the Halloween decorations, the warm sweaters, and make the house smell like pumpkin! 

Today I wanted to share one of my favorite and EASIEST cookie recipes ever. It's so tasty and only calls for three ingredients. Yes three ingredients, that's it. My mother-in-law showed this recipe to me years ago, and I fell in love with it immediately! Without further ado, here is my favorite fall treat recipe. 

Three Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies 

1 (15 oz) Can of Pumpkin
1 cake mix, I like yellow, but spice cake works too
1 (12 oz) bag of chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl with mixer or wooden spoon. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheet. These cookies don't really spread out while baking, so shape them before you pop them in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Enjoy! 

Bright Dino

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Can I tell you how much I love this shirt?! I got it from Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom. When I saw it, I fell in love with it immediately! I've been a vegetarian for three years now, and I loved this cute dinosaur logo shirt. I had fun pairing this purple tee with blue vans and bright pink lips!

Edgy All-American

Saturday, September 13, 2014

I love a fun edgy look, especially when there are soft elements mixed in. This look was centered around these Arizona boots which I've LOVED and are on sale right now. I think it's fun to mix together looks that you might not normally put together, like combat boots with ringlets, or a waist-tied sweatshirt with dark denim. Now that it's getting a little colder, I can't wait to turn my closet upside down with sweaters, boots, and and warmer looks. Fall is coming!

Just My Style

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

We've been enjoying the last of these warm days before fall is officially here. I'm sad to end the days of swimming, eating snow cones, and basking in the sun, but I'm really excited for all the fun fall brings too.

I love bright colors and I couldn't pass up on this turquoise tee from AEO Factory. Once again, I'm ecstatic to say that both the shirt and denim on this piece were under twelve dollars! The necklace is not available through H& anymore, but I've posted a similar beauty. Details and links below, have a fabulous week! 

A Vision of Pink

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Can you tell that I absolutely adore dressing up this little one? Kenzie is such a girly girl, like her mamma ;) So I recently checked out some of the deals going on for back to school shopping, and I wanted to share some of my favorite steals. A&E has the cutest tees for $10, and scarves for $14-20. Also, Gap has jeans from $25.00! Click the links below to see the deal and more styles. Happy Shopping!

End of Summer Steals

Friday, August 22, 2014


Summer is ending! I'm sad, but I'm always excited for fall. I wanted to share one of my favorite outfits from this week. I love this Pretty-Little-Liars-style comfy tee, and I couldn't believe it was such a steal! Check out prices and links below. 

You've got class, baby!

Paint the Town Red

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Yes, this is a complete and full on selfie. As a new mom, sometimes it's the best I can do to snap a pic before baby calls. Let's be honest, she's the queen of the house.

So lately I've been loving red lips. For years I've shied away from any colored lipstick or gloss and told myself I couldn't pull it off. I thought that because I had "thin lips" I had to wear neutrals and skin tone shades. This year I decided to throw my inhibitions about lipstick out the window and finally try out the bright red lips I've always wanted to. And you know what? I am absolutely loving it! Why did I wait so long to try it out?

I bought Wet n Wild's Silk Finish Lipstick in Hot Red. Once again this was under $2, is cruelty free, and really, it looks just as good as department store brands.

I'm definitively going to be trying out their other bold colors, which you can find a link to here.

If you've been avoiding certain makeup or hair colors because you've told yourself you can't pull it off, try it out! I've learned that with confidence, you can rock anything.

Okay, gotta go. Baby calls!

Newborn pictures

Friday, July 11, 2014

I can't believe my baby girl is almost a month old! When I was pregnant I felt like time went by so slowly, now everything seems to be in fast forward. Here are my favorite newborn shots of Kenzie by Kastleman Photography. She looks so sweet in all the headbands and tutu's! I loved how these turned out, and it was so fun to get a picture of my baby with all my books! 

Being a mom

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

The pictures from baby Kenzie's newborn shoot are here! Jen from Kastleman Photography took these and I am so happy with how they turned out. She was able to capture the moment perfectly (visit her page here). 

I love this girl, love this boy, and love being a mamma. 

Guess what?!
