Rainbow Inspired Mini Favorites

This week is St. Patrick’s Day, which means it’s the one time of year that we have Lucky Charms in the house & it is a marshmallow world! Lately I am loving all of the rainbow inspired clothes for kids, Eloise is obsessed with everything blue which is hard to find for girls sometimes, so whenever she spots something with rainbow colors on it, she immediately wants it. I thought this year instead of going all green, we would round up some of our favorite rainbow inspired styles.

Stripe Dress // Swimsuit // Pajamas // Ruffle Suit // Tights // Stacker // Pillow // Tutu

How fun is that rainbow stacker toy?! The girls have a smaller version, but I love the colors in this one! It might make it’s way into an Easter Basket at our house next month! Now we just need this winter weather to disappear. And some green beer! What are your St. Patty’s Day plans?!

Spring Style // Shoes + Accessories

Spring is almost here! And as much as I am not looking forward to our morning wake up call being an hour earlier, I am SO excited about that extra hour of daylight in the evenings. Harper told me the other day that she can’t wait for warmer weather so she can wear her hula skirt like Moana every single day to school. I like her style!

I wanted to share a few fun Spring inspired accessories that I am loving lately, lots of pink & all under $100.

White Clutch // I love clutches because my purse fills up so quickly, I love to just grab my wallet and go if I am by myself. These tassels + the texture are perfection!

Oversized Leather Tote // A lot of you have asked about the bag I carry most of the time, it has been sold out for a while but is by Sole Society. This cognac one is similar, and these fun perforated holes are super fun for Spring!

Colorful Sneakers // I’m addicted to comfy shoes because I wear yoga pants 80% of the time. Plus, loving these colors!

Pink Hat // Every girl needs a good hat to throw on to hide a bad hair day, right?! Hats are a lifesaver for me for school pick up, early morning grocery runs or even meeting up with my girlfriends for a drink at the end of the day when I probably should have stayed home to wash my hair.

Espadrille Wedges // Always a sucker for a cute wedge sandal. I also love these flats that are under $30 (although I have wide duck feet so not sure I could pull them off) but the colors are all so pretty!

Sunnies // Aside from my prescription glasses that I wear for driving, I love cheap sunglasses because 1. my kids always want to wear them and 2. they’re perfect for the beach, pool, etc. where you don’t have to worry so much about them getting scratched.

Cheers to the last week of winter, bring on all the pretty pastels + patio dining!! XO

 

Makeup & Skincare Favorites

Disclaimer: It feels sort of ironic to be writing this post this morning when I was just about faced with one of my biggest fears. Being the last car in car line for preschool drop off (we’ve never been late once) but one minute later would have forced me to walk the girls into school to their classrooms with my scary no-makeup zombie face, wearing full two piece striped pajamas, husbands slippers & un-brushed hair. So clearly I am an expert in beauty, let’s hop right to it.

First things first, skincare. I have been using this Yes To Grapefruit face wash for years & I still love it. It is a gentle exfoliator, smells so good & always keeps my skin from breaking out. I remove my eye makeup with jojoba oil, wash my face, and then use a few more drops of jojoba oil in & with a drop of Frankincense oil as my moisturizer. I know it sounds crazy to use oil as a moisturizer, but I love it more than any face lotion I have ever used, it dries quickly so it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy, and it also promotes healthy, glowing skin long after it is applied.

I use Laura Mercier Radiance Primer & Nars Tinted Moisturizer (in the color Alaska right now but usually go a shade darker in the summer) as my base. If I am in a hurry or just on a casual day, I wear the tinted moisturizer alone, it has great light coverage and goes on so soft and smooth. I use Mac Mineralize Concealer, which I absolutely love, I feel like it never creases and does a great job of hiding my dark circles, and I set my makeup with a super light layer of translucent powder. Nars Bronzer in Laguna has been my go-to for years, I will never use anything else, it has the perfect hint of ashy-bronze without looking orange, and stays on all day. I recently tried Pixi Glowy Powder as a highlighter and absolutely love it, there are a few different shades and I love using it on my cheekbones! I almost always use Stila Shadow in Kitten, it is super light & shimmery, but also very nude/sheer, this also works amazing as a highlighter! 😉

I have been wearing the same mascara for years, I swear I have tried them all but continue to come back to my favorite L’Oreal Voluminous mascara (the original!) and lately have been loving the Lash Primer as well. I don’t have my lash extensions anymore, and on a whim I will wear Ardell Wispies, they are really lightweight, look very natural & are easy to apply. My favorite Mac lip gloss was discontinued (tears!) and I am currently trying every shade of nude lipstick/lip gloss on the planet looking for a new fav (feel free to leave recommendations if you have a good one!). I love the Marvelous Moxie glosses, they’re minty & the perfect consistency! I also just found this Pixi Max Lip Lift nude gloss at Target last weekend, it is a little sheer but so far I love it as an everyday gloss.

I hope that is helpful in answering some of your questions, let me know if I’ve missed anything & I will be sure to answer in the comments! I also love hearing makeup recommendations & favorites, so if you have a good one, be sure to leave it below as well! XO
