I am excited to start blogging again and loving that I can document my kids lives as well as have a space to be creative and share my ideas and thoughts. I have picked some things for this weeks Friday Favorites that I am currently loving.
I am known for when I want something to drop subtle hints at my husband. I will email him just a link of something I want and not say anything else about it. I did this with this Gucci purse after seeing it worn by a bunch of bloggers I follow and I instantly fell in love with it. The amazing husband Ryan is surprised me with the purse for Valentines day. I guess my subtle hints are working! I love the white color and can’t wait to wear it this Spring and Summer. To be honest, I am a little scared to wear it around my kids……If you have seen my car you know what I am talking about.
Bailey ~ Our New Cavapoo
I have been trying to talk my husband into us getting another dog for about a year. We also have a black lab named Sadie who is 9 and since she is getting older I thought it was a good time to add another dog to the family. Ryan finally gave in and in November we got Bailey. I knew I wanted a smaller dog who did not shed, the lab dog hair absolutely kills me. Bailey has been a great addition to our family and the kids love her, especially Trent! We are still working on the potty training (if you have any tips let me know) but I am so glad this little teddy bear is apart of our family.
This Weeks Beauty Favorites
During the week when I am running around with the kids, going to the gym, running errands, etc and I don’t like to wear a ton of makeup but I still want to feel put together. I have been wearing Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer for years but I decided to try this new itcosmetics CC cream and I love it! Its a full coverage cream with anti-aging serum and SPF 50. I have been wearing this with a little bit of blush for my everyday look.
I have heard a lot about LipSense so I finally ordered some for myself and now I am obsessed. I normally am not a big lipstick person because nothing seems to stay on for very long. This stuff is amazing and stays on all day long, I even can still see some color on my lips when I wake up in the morning! I got a very neutral color and love that is goes with everything. I can’t wait to try more colors.
iPhone 7 Plus
I finally ordered the iPhone 7 plus and I love it! The camera alone was worth the money.
When I first got this phone I took this picture just to test out the camera and I immediately sent this pic to my husband saying the camera was amazing! (I am wearing the lipSense Kelly’s Krush in this pic)
When we were in Hawaii over New Years I tried on these Prada sunglasses and instantly wanted them. I couldn’t stop thinking about them so I ordered them online. I have been wearing them nonstop since I got them!
Whole 30 Crock Pot Chili
Ryan and I completed Whole 30 in January. After the holidays and a week in Hawaii where all we did was eat and drink, we knew we needed to do something! We both felt amazing on Whole 3o and we are still trying to follow it as much as we can. This chili recipe was one of our go-to meals, especially with all the rain we have been getting it felt like a good hearty meal.
Ryan and I have our birthday two days apart and this year my mother-in-law got us a William Sonoma gift card. I knew right away what I wanted to buy. I love my Keurig for my morning coffee but there is nothing better than a warm espresso in the middle of the day to keep you going. I love our new Nespresso machine and it has seriously saved me many days from wanting to take a nap on the couch
I hope you all have an amazing weekend! I am excited for the sun to be out and to relax with my kids!
