Eyebrow lamination/lash lift

Eyebrow lamination/lash lift

Hello Hello!! I’m finally writing on the blog! I really really miss it so much. But I’m gonna be honest, I just haven’t had the creative bug or the drive to write or create. I really don’t like feeling this way, but this year has just been super hard. And I know everyone knows this. It’s also just not a priority with my boys home they are keeping me extremely busy. And they are and will always be my priority.

But I’m here writing because I’ve recently posted on my eyebrow lamination and lash lift and I’ve received questions and interest on how it works and how I like it. So first eyebrow lamination, I got it done first in February of this year and absolutely loved it. I don’t have much eyebrows and my hair hardly grows. So this really gave my eyebrows that lift and fuller look. So the actual treatment is about an hour long, and last from 6-8 weeks. Price range varies but mostly between $80-140. Obviously do the research on where you go. You want someone who has experience and knows what they are doing. I’d say totally worth it.

Lash lift, ok so for about 2 years I had been getting lash extensions and I loved them, I loved how they looked. They made my simple makeup look so beautiful. Well pandemic hits and we can’t get anything done. I was a bald panda on my lashes once the extensions all came off. Well I had lashes but they weren’t long or full. I felt naked, lol! So being we had a lot of time on our hands I started using a lash serum and it worked wonders for my lashes and didn’t irritate me at all, I used babe lash, you can find them online. I used that for months and when things started to reopen I decided to try a lash lift, I absolutely loved it so much. My lashes are naturally straight and I’m not big on mascara so the lash lift just gave them that beautiful natural look. So the lift is a treatment that takes an hour, it’s pretty much perming your lashes. Should last 6-8 weeks, price range $80-$140! I’d say worth it!

So pros and cons for extensions and lash lift on my experiences!

Extensions are great they look beautiful, they just glam up any makeup look. But you will lose some of your natural lashes, it is an expensive upkeep if you go every 2 weeks. You won’t be able to rub your eyes good because you will loosen them. Pretty much my thoughts on extensions!

Lash lift is great if you like a more natural look and have those pesky straight lashes. Also great if you are like me where most mascaras irritate the eyes. Also less upkeep since treatment last 6-8 weeks. But again like any kind of treatments I’m sure you can lose some lashes. I’ve yet to discover this but I’m sure it can happen. I wouldn’t say I have found any cons with lash lift I’ve had it done twice and I absolutely love it.

till next post, keep safe everyone and I hope to be back soon!

Random stuff I like

Random stuff I like

Hello friends! Hope you all are doing well! And sending big hugs to all my Mamas out there holding it down with the virtual learning! And to all the teachers who are dealing with so much! I’ve just been trying to stay organized around the house to make our days easier and less chaotic. But Today I wanted to share some random things I like! I say random because it’s not one specific category. But most are things I use everyday, things I just discovered and I don’t know how I’ve gone this long without it! So here goes.

3F93DC09-86E4-43BD-A178-D3E3549F7976 

First I wanted to share beauty because I know everyone loves a good beauty find. And this is only because it’s a must for me, because lately I haven’t even worn makeup unless I need to shoot that day or we have errands. These 2 items I just recently discovered and being we all have to wear mask right now, my eyebrows are a must. Right before the pandemic I had my brows laminated and when places got the ok to re-open I had made an appointment to get it done again, Well that didn’t happen with the second closure. So I was desperate to find something that would make my brows look good. I ordered this brow wax was Patrick Ta. The clear wax was completely sold out so I knew it was probably good. They did have a tinted one and I read reviews that it didn’t really give color so I figured let me try. I love this stuff it works great gives your brows that more fluffed up look without them dropping. I honestly didn’t think I would like it that much. I recently also just started using this microfilling pen from benefit. This is really cool gives me realistic hair like strokes and is easy to use. This combo is a life saver for my brows especially with us wearing mask my brows and lashes have to pop! 

Next is Something I mentioned above, MASK! We all need them to get in stores, etc. I recently purchased some from Baublebar. And I’m going to state this I don’t think they are medical grade but they are pretty and comfortable. Normally I wear some with a filter inserted for extra protection, Those are Honest company! But if you want some pretty ones that you can maybe match with an outfit, if you will be dining outside or going to be somewhere outdoors, I recommend the Baublebar ones. 

If you all read my Blogs, You know I recently had a Breast reduction. Well I’m glad I have the choice to go braless these days, But I still want to keep it PG so nipple covers are a must! I ordered these from SKIMS, and I love them. They have good colors and they don’t hurt when you pull them off. They also do the job! Check them out. 

I had been wanting to try self tanning at home. But I don’t like the orange look and I don’t like a fuss. I finally took the plunge and ordered from LUX UNFILTERED, a brand started by a Blogger I really like. And let me tell you I love it. It’s easy to apply and gives me such a nice subtle color. I recently went to Palm springs and got a great real tan, So now I’m just keeping it up with this very hydrating tanning cream Check it out! you won’t be disappointed. 

Next one I never really believed in these type of sweat trainers or waist trainers. But this one I love. We go on daily walks in the evening and it has been a must to wear. I love to see all that sweat after I take it off, I swear I’ve noticed a difference since wearing it. Like I said totally random stuff I’m loving, LOL! 

I swear I’m almost done! Plants don’t let me get started! I’m loving plants so much they are just so calming to have and I love taking care of them. My friend recently started her little plant business. If I can have a whole wall of her plants she sells I would. If you are in the LA area check her out and order a baby plant. Seriously my newest obsession.

Ok lastly!!! My love for skinny margaritas is big! I order them everywhere I go and I love them. But making them with fresh lime juice can be annoying. I recently discovered this and let me tell you they are the perfect margaritas! Buy this and thank me later. All you need is your favorite tequila, add some of this perfect lime mix to a cup of ice in a salted rimmed glass and a splash of Topo Chico! You got yourself one good skinny marg! Cheers!  

Well that’s it My very random favorites list right now! But you know what Life is pretty random right now so Hey I’m just going with the flow! Till next post!

Hello friends! Hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful Valentine’s Day! We actually asked the boys what they wanted and they picked shake shack, and that was perfect! I love that place. So our valentines was a family night out. This month I wanted to stick to things I love! So to continue with that I wanted to share the products and items I’m loving right now. Most I’ve been using for a long time.

66F3E632-FB2E-4F93-A34F-F3D4990AA784

First is for sure skin care favorites! I finally have a skin regimen that I see my skin loves. I also think washing your face every night and using an spf is important. I’ve talked about summer Fridays before and I’m talking about them now! They just came out with a gel cleanser. I’ve always been more sensitive to face washes. So when I heard they were coming out with a gel cleanser,I had to have it. I’ve only been using it for a little over a week now. And my first impression is it’s not drying. The worst is when you use a face wash and your face feels instantly dry. Not this one, it cleanses really well and so far so good. My absolute favorite is the pumpkin over time mask. This I use about 2 times a week. I’ve been using the cc me serum as well and I like it, haven’t seen much of a difference in my dark spots beside them not getting darker. I have noticed my pores are less noticeable which is a plus! I do love the jet lag mask, it became my night cream and under eye cream and it’s great! If you have all of these I promise your skin will love you.

Accessories! I love some Accessories, at the moment I’m all about a gold loop. And I actually love the packs from H&M,they are so fun and they don’t hurt my ears. I’m also loving headbands right now, but I don’t like when they are tight and uncomfortable, the ones from HM are so cute, inexpensive and they don’t hurt. Check them out!

Vitamins!! I’m about to turn 41 soon and I started taking a multi vitamin. I’m loving these and the hubby even takes the one for men! Check them out!

Lastly would be my favorite nail polish that I take every time I get a pedicure. I normally just get white on my toes, I know kinda boring but it just looks good with everything! This one is my absolute favorite and last a long time. During winter I can get away with a pedi once a month. Try it!

So that’s it, my product love post! Let me know if you’ve tried any. Hope you liked this post, till next time!

My skin care routine at 40

My skin care routine at 40

Hello my friends! Hope you all are doing well! We are doing great besides a crazy stomach bug Breaker caught. He’s so tough my little guy! He always has such good spirits even when he’s puking. He’s better today and now we can get ready for his birthday celebrations. He turns 6 on Monday! I seriously can’t believe it. I’ll share some more next week.

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite skin care products. I’ve done a post before but I have changed it up being that I turned 40 this year. And I noticed I needed to add a bit more to my skin care needs. I’ll link my old post here! I still love the ones I posted but I feel it’s good to change it up during the year as seasons change or add something more when needed.
EF5A9D53-3AB3-476F-9E39-EBE0A29DC321

So first is my daily face wash. I was using cerave which I still love but I did feel like I needed something a little more aggressive but still not harming to my skin. I do have sensitive skin. So I started using Dermalogica daily microfoliant. I used one similar before but it was the age defying one and it was too aggressive I think this one is just perfect. I’ll use this at night mostly since through out the day we get more dirt on our face. Normally in the morning I just get a wash cloth rinse with warm water and lightly wipe my face, I try not to wash with a wash in the morning since I wash at night. I do use a toner after the warm cloth wipe just to remove any dirt from sleeping. I’ve noticed this method has worked and my face has not been dry even in this dry weather.
4875972E-488A-4164-ABA1-2EC48DFEA572

Ok so now for the secret gems! First always use an SPF during the day I still use the Cerave daily face moisturizer with SPF. I do want to try the Super goop one soon! So after my morning face wipe and toner, I add the newest addition to my skin care routine, Summer Friday’s CC me serum! It’s fantastic I’ve used it now for a month and I love it. I’ve noticed my pores are less noticeable and my hyper pigmentation on my upper lip has gotten much lighter. That is the one that bothered me the most. I do have age spots and I still don’t see much difference but I’m ok with that because I don’t see them any darker either. So once I add my CC serum I will add on my SPF moisturizer! That’s my morning routine. Night routine after using My face wash I’ll add a tiny bit of the CC serum above my upper lip and my age spots, difference from morning is I put it all over. After that I will use Summer Friday’s jet lag mask as a night cream this has been my holy grail for over a year now. My under eye area is so good because of this! I did recently start using this tea spray from teami blends I do love it but realized it has oils so I am very carful when using because of my eye lash extensions. But it smells amazing! Last but definitely not least is Summer Friday’s overtime mask this has been a game changer! My skin feels so great after using this. I use it about 3 times a week it’s just the best exfoliating mask ever. I feel like this routine has been the best for my skin so far! And now for my secret. I had been feeling extremely self conscious with my skin. I mean I have good skin thankfully my Mom taught me young to take care of it and not to wear so much makeup! Because I’ll always need it. Glad she told me that.

But I’m 40 and I mean naturally we get older and things change. Well I was not wanting to wear foundation because I thought it made my forehead wrinkles more visible especially that annoying 11! Well I decided to start my journey with Botox! I say journey because I will continue to get it every 6 months as advised by my Dr! I received 25 units on my 11 area. And I couldn’t be more happier! It’s given me more confidence especially the fact that I take photos for my blog! I don’t have to edit much. I’m so happy with my decision. And highly recommend anyone thinking about it to please do your research before getting it done! Side note doesn’t hurt at all and the myths of Botox headache is not true! It actually took my headaches away!

So why is this something I’m thankful for? Because my mom taught me to take care of my skin that I’ll have forever. And thankful for my Botox,Lol!

So that’s my beauty secrets,Lol! Hope you liked this post, till next post!

My new foundation

My new foundation

Hello everyone! So I wanted to post about the fairly new Dose of colors foundation. I’m sure most are familiar with this brand. They are pretty popular and I’ve been happy with everything I’ve ever ordered from them.

4E2B77F4-24DA-40EC-B778-AFE2702FCF98

So when I heard they were releasing a foundation I was pretty excited. I’m not big on foundation and I’ve never had a go to. I of course watched the YouTube videos on the foundation before I purchased. I mean it’s still risky ordering a foundation online and not to mention one that just came out. I took the risk and ordered the best color I  felt matched with my skin color!

I was also I little skeptical since it was said to be a matte foundation. At my age 40 sometimes matte foundations can make the wrinkles stand out more. And I’m super self-conscious about my forehead wrinkles. Which I plan on botoxing soon. I’ll write a post on that once I do.

Ok so I get my foundation in the mail and I use it  for the first time just while I run errands. Ok I like it. First impression I love that you can keep it light or add on for more coverage. Like I said previously I don’t care for foundation. I like the look of my fresh skin. And the fact that I didn’t feel cakey with the foundation was great. Another thing I liked right away is that after wearing it all day when I was ready to wash off it still looked good. No shiny nose.

The real test was Vegas, can it hold up in Vegas weather and long lasting you know from morning to night! And yes I was so happy and I didn’t even have to touch up with powder even after a little sweat from the Vegas heat. I’ve been using the foundation for a month now and I really like it!

Tips with foundation is use a hydrating primer before at least, I felt like it kept it from feeling too matte. Which it honestly doesn’t even feel terribly matte. Also I normally use NARS matte concealer but since the foundation is matte I used my creamy concealer from NARS and it’s perfect. I also don’t have to set my face with powder, just under my eye area a very tiny tiny bit.

If you are looking for a new matte foundation or even something that looks like fresh flawless skin I’d say give this a try! I’m usually a Mac NC30 and I used dose of colors 117 and it’s a perfect match for my skin. Of course right now I’m a little more tanned so I just add some bronzer and it looks perfect!

Hope this was helpful! Till next post!

My July favorites!

My July favorites!

Hello ladies! So am I seeing this right, We are walking into the third week of July?! I mean this summer is going so fast. I have a feeling it’s going super fast for me because I’m so nervous about Breaker starting kindergarten. I almost don’t want summer to end. I feel more nervous the second time around, I think because with David I worked so it was normal for me to be away from him during the day. Breaker’s been my ride or die since birth. I’m accepting applications for day time friends, LOL!

Ok so since we are into the middle of July and the middle of summer, I thought it would be fun to share some of my July obsessions. Some I’ve shared already and some are new!

IMG_6224

First lets get into my latest beauty obsessions! We all love skincare and makeup right?! So during the summer I focus more on my skin care. I need to take care of it, wash it good and moisturize. We should always take care of our skin but I really focus on it during summer. Not only because we sweat more but I don’t really like wearing makeup when it’s hot. So it’s important to keep that skin looking fresh. Another tip for summer makeup is I only use a tinted moisturizer during the day, If I’m even wearing makeup.I try to stay away from heavy foundation during summer. I’ll conceal my more troubled areas with concealer but I’m very light with it. I think lashes could really help with that summer look. If you have extensions great, If not These are my latest obsession I find the trio Ardell lashes so much easier to work with than strips. At least for me. Bronzer is a must and I know it’s pricy but my favorite summer bronzer is Chanel, Linked here. My other obsession is Dose of colors gloss in that’s cool. I’ve been wearing it since I got it and wearing it in this photo. Like I said less makeup is best in summer. If you want to spice it up put on a bright lip! As long as you look dewy and bronzed you are set!

IMG_6223

Ok if you all don’t know that Zara is my favorite store yet, Then that just means you need to read my blog more, LOL! So lately I’ve been living in these basic crew T-shirts from Zara. I love them, I wear them a lot! They keep me cool and they are easy to style! Not to mention they are under $8, Do I need to say anymore. I just got these colors and I have double in black and white, You can never have enough basic colors. Great summer Tee!

IMG_6226

My last obsession is my Mango smoothie! I’ve been making this everyday after my workout. I needed a change from my others. I’ve talked about my favorite protein Powder here and my workout I do everyday. Check it out. But today I’m sharing the recipe, So easy and yummy! This one doesn’t have greens so what I do is make myself a side spinach salad for dinner, Just to get my greens in for the day! If not add that in your smoothie, it will just be a green one.

1 cup of almond milk

handful of frozen mango no sugar added one

1 TBS of flax seed

1 scoop of vanilla protein powder

you can add extra ice for thicker consistency

enjoy!

Hope you liked my post, So what’s your latest obsession? Till next post!

Glossier cloud paint

Glossier cloud paint

Hello Beauties! How are you all doing? I hope well! I’m doing good, Keeping busy. I mean mom life is always busy. I’ve been a little busier with appointments. I’m leaving on my trip in a few weeks and I made certain appointments to get ready for it. I like to get these done while Breaker is at school, so it doesn’t leave me too much time. But I’m getting it all done in the next few weeks. I’m super excited. It’s tough being a girl, LOL! We need to get so much done before trips, events etc. I’ve had Laser hair removal appts, eyelash extensions, hair appts. and the last will be manicure and pedicure, GEEZ! I’ll be doing a post on my trip once I’m back. Hopefully with some fun stuff and helpful tips.

Today I wanted to share my new blushes I bought this past weekend. One of the things I wanted for my trip was a new blush. I love blush and honestly with eyelash extensions some blush, a pretty lip color with some tinted moisturizer and I’m set. So of course I asked my Bestie if she knew of any cool blushes. She mentioned Glossier cloud paint. I’ve heard good things about this blush and I’ve used Glossier highlight sticks before.

IMG_1896

One of the cool things about being in LA is that they just opened up a Glossier store. When I first purchased from Glossier it was only online. But Yes they opened up the cutest store in West Hollywood. I didn’t get a pic of how cute the store was but I did take this cool pic. They have a room you can go in for some fun photos. The entire store is Instagram perfect. It’s located here!

Ok so on to the makeup! Something I’ve come to love lately and especially at my older age now, 39 if you guys don’t know. I’m loving less and less powder products and more cream products. I think they just make my skin look more youthful. I don’t get Botox or fillers. So I’m all natural. I have been blessed with nice skin, But of course we can’t run away from natural aging. So these blushes from Glossier are perfect! They call them Cloud paint! I went with Dusk and Beam. Dusk is such a pretty soft brown and Beam is a soft peach. They go on so smooth and so easy just with your fingertips. I did try to get the best swatches for you all, I love the way they look on my skin, so natural. I’d say if you are on the hunt for some new blush definitely take a trip to Glossier and check these out. Not to mention it’s walking distance from the famous Alfred tea room! Added a pic of my drink! Would I recommend these if buying online, Most definitely!

Makeup for travel

Makeup for travel

Hello Ladies!! I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve written. That means I had a long Week! Getting back to the school routine has me exhausted. And I forgot how much more laundry we use during school days! The boys are transitioning so good.

The next couple weekends and weeks are going to be a little busy. I leave for my trip in a month. I still need a few things for my trip. And some appointments to get to before.  I’m pretty excited, I booked my very first spray tan. I will share once I’ve done it. If this was just a more mommy getaway trip I would be doing less. But we are actually going for a wedding. So I want to make sure I’m prepared and groomed, Lol!

So with that said, Makeup! So like I said if this was more of a let mom getaway to R&R, I probably wouldn’t even take much makeup or if any. But we are going for a wedding so I will need makeup. But for some reason whenever we’ve gone to Vegas or short trips I always over pack makeup. Why? I have no clue. I’m trying to keep my packing to carry-ons only. I’d rather take an extra pair of shoes than more makeup.

Besides my face routine items, This is pretty much all I plan to take with me. First my face prep. Since will be traveling by airplane I know my skin will be so dry. So an exfoliate and Summer Fridays jet lag mask is a must. The exfoliate besides my normal wash will be much-needed. I know I will get dry skin. The Jet lag mask is fantastic So that’s definitely coming. Which Summer Fridays just released an exfoliate! I’m hoping to get my hands on that one before I leave. SPF for sure! We are traveling at night but will be arriving in Punta Cana in the am, so I will need this with me. I also forgot to picture my Mario Badescu rose water spray, that will definitely be with me.

Processed With Darkroom

For sure I’ll be taking my traveling light mirror. If I’m getting ready once the sun goes down hotel lighting is horrible, So this comes in handy. My brushes I always pack in this brush bag. It’s perfect and the makeup brushes don’t get smashed. I’ll be bringing two eyeshadow palettes. Better look in next pic.

IMG_1481

So I’m a total neutral more bronzy makeup lover. These are my favorites and you can do so many looks with just these two eyeshadow palettes, Colourpop is still available, my Mario Palette isn’t. My favorite bronzer at the moment will be coming. And since I’m trying to keep packing to a minimal. I love this highlighter/blush duo from Becca cosmetics, Mine pictured is not available anymore but this looks even better! The blush is pretty with any bronzy look and I also like wearing just my bronzer if I’m going for a more natural look instead of blush.

image

These are a few other items I will be bringing as well. I love liquid highlighter and this one from Sephora is my favorite. Can’t forget a tinted moisturizer. Lately I’ve been just wearing this and no foundation. Gotta have the brow precise to fill in my eyebrows. Some lose highlighter dust will be fun for some added highlight with swimsuits. Can’t forget some fun color lips. I have eyelashes extensions so I’m planning on adding some tinted moisturizer, some highlight and a pop of color on my lips. And done!

Processed With Darkroom

I couldn’t find my exact makeup traveling bag but it’s pretty much like this one. You open it up and it has two sides with zipper openings and fits quite a bit of stuff and will fit perfectly in my carry on bag!

Well that’s it! Let’s hope I stick to my plan, LOL! My goal is to pack light, fingers crossed! Hope you all enjoyed this post. Till next post!

My skin routine

My skin routine

Hello Beauties! Hope you all are having a nice week. The weather has been a little weird here in LA for this time of year. But no complaints, I’m enjoying this cozy weather. So who’s ready for summer vacation for the kiddos! I truly enjoy having them home and a little less running around on schedules. But I’m not going to lie and say I love it also, LOL!  Be sure to read next weeks blog post. I’m going to talk more about how I get ready for the kids to be home for summer. And the places we will go and things we will do to keep them busy.

Today’s post I wanted to talk about my skin routine. I won’t go into too much, because I’m not a professional and we all have different skin. So what works for me might not work for you. But I’ll talk about what I’ve added to my skin routine and what’s working for me since my skin is aging.

I turned 39 this year. I started noticing a difference in my skin last year. I noticed more age spots on my face and of course those dreadful pores no one wants to see and some texture. I’ve tried so many different brands and I’ve never been super happy with the results. They worked ok. I wanted to be committed to a routine and I wasn’t finding the perfect one. Last year back in April 2017 I went to get a facial. I loved the way my skin felt after and of course after getting facials they will recommend products. Which I recommend that to anyone who feels they just haven’t committed to a routine and nothing seems to be working. I recommend getting a facial. I think that will help you to figure out what you really need. I’ll list 2 down below that I have had services from and really like the end results.

10703C81-6E0C-4D6F-ACF2-3ACEB3EA7FAA

I started using Dermalogica. I had heard of it before but never used. I love this duo.  I really like the way this duo leaves my skin. . Exfoliating is so important. We live in a polluted environment and we need deep cleanse. I exfoliate 2 days a week. It’s usually on hair washing days. The daily wash is great I really feel cleansed after using. I only use this face wash at night   since my face is more dirty and especially after a makeup day.

IMG_8650

This cleanser is what I use in the morning or on days I really don’t go outside. It’s less harsh than the Dermalogica. I really love this wash for mornings because our faces are not really that dirty and I think it’s good to keep some of our natural face oils. This cleanser is very light weight and creamy. Perfect for those with sensitive skin. You can find this at Target.

IMG_8651

Lastly the most important is daily moisture with SPF I can’t stress this enough. I really like this one and have talked about it in other post. I think we all know that this is so important. It’s been my go to for well over a year.

I didn’t want to get into what serum, oils and eye cream I use because to be honest I haven’t found those holy grails. I do have to say I use a serum with vitamin C and I am loving that so far. I want to use it more to really give my stamp of approval. I do have a blog post up on the cream I use at night. Here it is! But all the others I have listed are my Holy grails. They work for me. I have normal to dry skin. Age spots and very minor wrinkles. Hope this helped if you are looking into some new products. I’ll also list the Dermalogica products below and the places I’ve had facials at.

Have a great rest of the week. Till Next post.

Spring Favorites

Spring Favorites

Hello Beauties! How is this lovely spring weather treating you?! I love it, I just can’t handle the allergies I get from this gorgeous spring weather. Besides that It’s been perfect. I’ve been focusing on my house lately. Trying to change-up a few things. We’ve painted the bathroom, next will paint the kitchen. Just little changes and some new decor. It’s one of the things on my vision board to give my house a mini makeover. We still need some improvements but little by little will get it to a happy place. I’m still trying to figure out what to do with the mountain of toys Breaker has, LOL! I think mini changes around the house just make you feel good. As simple as a new carpet or some new couch pillows. Doesn’t always have to be costly.

For today I wanted to list a few of my Spring favorites. Which I’ll also take with me to the summer season that’s fast approaching. Because I’m all about multiple use and getting your money’s worth.

 

My first stop would be my favorite shoes! Every spring/summer I try to find a good pair of nude sandals. I’ll use them all season long until it gets too cold to have my toes out. These sandals are from Zara. I absolutely love them. So cute for dresses, skirt and shorts. These will be on repeat all season. Another pair are these cute pearl slides from Target. They are so cute. I’m still on the hunt for my size I’ve tried them on and they are so cute and comfy but I can’t find my perfect size. I’ll be ordering these online right away.  Besides a flip-flop for those pool and beach days. You need to have a nude and black sandal. These will be perfect for the hot days to come.

Next stop would be Makeup duh! My motto is less is more. Especially when the weather is warm. We don’t want to be melting out there. I’ve been using this foundation since December from Laura Mercier. I really like it, But when I was using it during the winter I noticed it was more matte than I normally use. It’s a silk foundation. So now that the temperature is warmer I love it. I know this is going to be my go to for the hot days.It  Feels so good on the skin. Only advice is if you are more dry skin use a hydrating primer under. It looks great. Another makeup must have for spring/summer is a liquid highlighter these two are great and just give you that dewy glow we all want for those warm days. Bronzer is a must especially if you have that beautiful golden tan we all long for after the winter. Because we are all making sure we protect our faces with a sun hat or umbrella, Bronzer will help your face blend in with that golden tan. I picked up this cute umbrella in china town for $5 I will be using this when I’m outside. Ladies protect your face from sun. So important!

After makeup we have perfume! We all want to smell good especially when the weather heats up. No one wants to smell sweaty, LOL! I’m not much of a perfume person. Only because I’m really sensitive to smells. I get bad headaches from strong scents. This perfume I’ve had for a while now and I love it. The smell is a softer smell. I would say more on the citrus side. I’m really bad with describing perfumes since I don’t wear much. But this one is very nice and perfect fragrance for spring/summer.

Next is your spring/summer bag. Before kids I would change my purses weekly. But now I’m like too much work. This year I’m trying to be cute again with my bags. The first one is this cute circle straw bag. I’ve been eyeing a bag like this since last summer. My lovely mom ordered this one for me for my Birthday. Only thing is it’s not available until May so I will be waiting at my door for this baby! Another look that is trending right now. The belt bags. These are so cute and I will be getting one. They look cool and not to mention hands free and no stress on your shoulders. WINNING! With these 2 looks you will be set for those spring/summer days.

Earrings!!! You all know I’m a sucker for a cute pair. These earrings will make you look spring/summer ready! These will look cute with any outfit and swimsuit. Go get some!

Lastly, For years I’ve been wanting to spruce up my porch. We spend more time out in front because it’s where Breaker plays. Finally I found chairs I like! I’ve been hunting down Acapulco chairs forever now. They are so expensive. I was jumping up and down when I saw these online at Target. They really did great with this new home line. They are from the new line Opal House. We got the chairs and rug from Target. I’m loving my little porch area. I just need to find a side table and add my little succulents to make it perfect. I will be having my coffee and watching Breaker play all spring/summer long on these chairs.

Hope you all liked this post for my spring favorites! Have a great rest of the week and weekend! Till next post!
