Mommy And Me Style: The Perfect Dresses For Spring And Summer
March 5, 2017 0
This weekend we had no set plans and I honestly can't remember the last time that happened.  It has been really lovely to wake up and go at our own pace with no set agenda ahead. I have even been to the gym twice...who am I? So while my sweet little babe is napping, I am getting ahead of some long awaiting blogging. I wanted to share this Mommy and Me look that I shot with Willow some time ago. I have posted about it several times on my Instagram, and it is finally making it's debut. With warmer days ahead these breezy dresses are the perfect fit for spring and summer.

How To Create Beachy Waves With A Straightener
February 28, 2017 0
As a Mother we don't always have the time to spend fussing over our hair. I mean I rock a top knot courtesy of a little dry shampoo way more often than I should! I am always on the look out for new and versatile tools that can simplify the process of getting ready since I usually have a 3 year old hanging off me for most of the day. Now before Willow, I used to use a curling wand and a straightener to achieve a wavy look and these days...ain't nobody got time for that! I recently found a styling iron that can straighten, curl, and create waves. Who doesn't love a hair tool that serves dual purposes and looks as sleek as the T3 SinglePass LUXE? I must admit I was a little intimidated by using just a flat iron to create waves, but the T3 has flexible beveled plates and a contoured body to glide smoothly through hair. See my steps below on how to create carefree waves using the T3 Singlepass LUXE.

1. Allow your T3 SinglePass LUXE a minute to heat up.

2. Take a one-inch section of your hair and bring the straightener up to your roots at a 45 degree angle.

3. Wrap the section around the front of the straightener, when you get to the back pull hair through the plates and clip them together.

4. Slide straightener smoothly down hair and release to reveal the perfect wave.

5. Run your fingers through your hair to separate the waves. Set it with your favorite hair spray or texturizing spray ( I love this one from Oribe).

6. Now pat yourself on the back for creating waves with a straightener and you should probably take a picture!

You can find the T3 SinglePass LUXE at T3, Nordstrom, Sephora, and ULTA

The Perfect, Kid Friendly Guacamole Recipe
February 22, 2017 0
Does your household celebrate taco Tuesday? Turkey tacos and guacamole is a constant in our house. One of my biggest cravings that I had when pregnant with Willow was avocados. It's no wonder that she also loves them! As a Mom, I really appreciate finding easy recipes that I know the whole family can enjoy. I snagged this 5 minute recipe from one of my best girl friends, India and it has remained a favorite for the last several years. You can really make it two ways, one for your children to enjoy and one with a kick of jalapeños that really gives it a spicy kick.

Gather your ingredients:

4 Ripe Avocados (press them gently, they should give a little)

1/4 red onion, finely chopped

1/2 vine tomato, finely chopped

1/2 lemon

salt

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut Avocados in half, remove the pit. Score the inside of the avocado with a knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon into a bowl. I mash the avocado just a bit, as I really like it stay chunky.
  2. Add chopped onion and tomatoes, mash again to mix.
  3. Squeeze half a lemon to add juice to guacamole and salt to taste. Mash again to mix.
  4. Serve immediately with your favorite chips, raw vegetables, or as a topping to your tacos! Enjoy!

*To make the spicy adult version, I add a 1/4 of a fresh, chopped jalapeño to step 2.

The Sweater You Need Right Now
January 12, 2017 0
This sweater from Topshop, had me at ribbon tie cuffs and powder blue. It is has a sweet and sexy fit, and it is a must have for your closet! I paired it with jeans and these amazing lace up ballet pumps. *Remember Topshop's US sizes are always sized down. So a size 2, actually fits like a size 0.  I am wearing a size 6 here, that fits like a 4.
