Hello everyone!

I hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous Texas weather! (For those of you who don't live in Texas we only have good weather twice a year...spring and fall lol)
I have some great news! I am now a Pampered Chef Consultant! I have always loved their products and am very excited to now be able to sell them. I'll be posting about our monthly host specials and guest specials periodically.

If you want to order anything then please contact me either on here or through my website.

I also recently became a Certified Nurse's Aide. Our state test was last week and my sister and I passed with flying colors! Very happy for us both!

Looking forward to a day filled with shopping, fun and maybe mani/pedis to celebrate. I will let you all know if I find some great shopping deals!

Happy Shopping and God Bless! XOXO

Birch box for the Home

I recently ordered a limited edition Birchbox as part of my birthday gift. I got it in the mail today and I really like it.

It came with a candle, some seeds to plant basil, a great smelling Tocca lotion, a cute veggie knife, a reusable bag and some yummy jams. I will definitely be ordering more limited edition birchboxes in the future.

Happy shopping!

Staying busy!

Oh my goodness have I had a busy week! I have an 11 month old and he got sick over Easter weekend. To make matters worse my whole family caught the bug as well. (Including me!)

Now that everyone is starting to feel better we went on an outing to target. I'm sure I've mentioned this before but I Love target. I feel like I keep them in business. :)
I bought some storage containers for organizing and more formula for my son.

But I have to say that the best part about today was the bouquet of flowers that I received this morning. My husband is currently deployed overseas and he randomly sends me flowers. I Love that about him! This Saturday is my 24th birthday (I know, I'm getting old!) so I've taken to calling them my 'birthday' flowers even though the card just said they were because he missed me.

I hope that you all have a marvelous week.
Happy shopping!

This sweet teddy bear was attached to the flowers. :) Awww!

New organizers :)

I love making everything in my life organized. From my purse to my phone to my sons toys. I relieve stress by cleaning and organizing so today I'm going to share a few of my recent buys that help keep my life stress free.

A tissue holder and card holder from the Etsy shop Coastersforyou.

I adore my iPad mini. It keeps all of my songs, books and my sons movies in one place and it syncs well with my MacBook which is great.

How cute is this?! It's a makeup case to help me keep all my lipsticks and such together. I adore this Etsy shop! It's called silky handmade.

That's all for today :) Happy shopping!

Statement necklace

A statement necklace is one of the easiest ways to dress up a casual look. It looks polished and very chic. Try it and let me know if it works for you!

March Birchbox reveal

I'm very excited to share my March Birchbox! It came with lots of wonderful goodies.

They included:

A sample of Juicy Couture's 'Couture La La' which smells amazing!

Madwell emery board that is very cute and is perfect for my purse.

Whish shaving cream that smells good and I'm excited to try it since I don't usually use shaving cream.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream that is a perfect light concealer and has SPF 30. You could also use it to improve skin tone or put it all over your face for a light foundation.

Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Shampoo works really great. I'm a huge fan of dry shampoo for texture and if you just need a little more volume at your roots.

Etsy Orders Received :)

I love getting mail :) It's a secret addiction of mine. I think it started when my husband (then boyfriend) joined the marine corps. I loved receiving letters from him so I checked the mail constantly. And now I check the mail hoping for etsy deliveries. The packaging for all of my orders was so cute and each seller had either given me an extra gift or a notecard saying thank you.

I received this adorable checkbook cover by twopolkadots yesterday and I adore it!!!

These matchbook notepads by funkychickenscoop are perfect for my purse. I actually used one for the first time last night at the grocery store.

I subscribed to Birchbox last week so I'm going to be adding that to my monthly mail. Ill be sharing the contents when I get mine next week. Excited!

Lipstick Confessions

So personally I have never been a big fan of lipstick. (We all know those women who always have more on their teeth than lips...ick!) But recently I've discovered that it can really complete a look. Whether I'm casual or dressy, a flattering shade of lipstick has been a must have for me. I love these Color Whisper shades by Maybelline. :)

They are light and super smooth. Perfect for dry lips.

Decorating with frames

I love this look! I really need to do this when I have a house. Pinterest never ceases to amaze me with decorating ideas :)

Arbonne Products

I have been wanting to try Arbonne for a long time and when one of my good friends became a consultant I was very excited about finally having a way to order it.
I placed an order today for their body firming cream (which has amazing before and after pictures), their foundation and foundation primer. I'm really looking forward to testing these products out!
I will definitely be posting my reviews on here :)
If you're looking to try Arbonne or have any questions about their products please feel free to contact my Consultant Megan Williams.

Etsy Love

I absolutely adore shopping on etsy. Handmade things are such a treasure in the mass production society we live in. I recently bought some of the cutest things off of there.

Loving my card case from BaffinBags
It is well made and it fits all of my gift cards. Plus it's adorable. :)

I'm looking forward to this coming in the mail. I ordered a pack of 30 matchbox notepads. Great for giving as gifts or just keeping in your purse. These are from funkychickenscoop

And last but not least I thought that this iPhone 5 case was so cute! (Yes I do have a lot of phone cases but its nice to be able to switch them out.)
This is from Pencil Shavings Studio and I got the color called Deep. (Looks very similar to the one in this photo.)

Emerald is the color of the year! Celebrate spring with this gorgeous necklace from target. You can use it to dress up a plain shirt or to add some sparkles to a little black dress.

Let's Talk Hair

Okay so I don't know about you guys but I love short hair for spring and summer. It is so hot and humid in Texas to deal with long hair but my big problem is that I love having long curly hair in the fall and winter. Sound familiar?
I wish there was a way to have both. (My hair color is natural and hair extensions are not an option since the color is basically unmatchable)
I've spent the last few years growing out my hair but I still like to dream about this gorgeous cut on Carrie Underwood. :)

I bought some huggable hangers from Target the other day (I Love Target!) and I adore these hangers. They save space and look so nice in my closet. Very sturdy too, especially if you hang up jeans or suits.

Weekend Finds

My new Kate Spade purse and wallet next to my new coupon book from target :) I have been wanting a leather purse for some time now so I finally bought one. i love it because its neutral and is in season year round. Have I mentioned that I have a purse addiction? Yeah I do :)
Good thing my husband doesn't mind lol

Hope you all have a great day! I'm going to go out and enjoy this gorgeous Texas day.

Finding Your Style

Finding my style has been a long road and I'm sure that its not quite finished yet. Transitioning from youth to young adult and now to a mom had taken its toll on my clothes. Everything was mismatched and some crazy mix of college girl and maternity. It was bad.
I recently discovered a style that is low maintenance but still put together. (Probably due to so much retail therapy now that my husband is deployed.)
This is an example of a typical day for me. Not too overdone to play with my son but not so plain that I can't go out.

Let me know if you like anything in the picture and I can label where everything's from. Although most of this or similar can be found at target and old navy.

iPhone 5 Case

So I love having a cute phone case but for some reason anytime that I have an iphone I always end up with an otterbox. In my attempt to break the mold I found this awesome website where you can customize your own case! Perfect for me and anyone else who can't seem to find the right color/style for their phone.

Daily Makeup

I love makeup :) It enhances your best features while still looking natural.

This is my daily makeup. It seems like a lot more work than it is. Let me know if you want to know a color name.

Wonderful polish

Okay so I have a confession....I LOVE nail polish. I cannot go a single day without perfectly painted nails. If they chip then I feel like my whole look is ruined. So you can imagine how excited I was whenever I discovered Sally Hansen's Insta Dri Anti Chip top coat. This stuff is amazing...and did I mention that it dries in 30 seconds?! Yeah. I know.
Perfect for busy moms who don't have like 10 hours to wait for nail polish to dry.
Pair it with this great color from Essie and you'll feel super chic!

Spring favorites from Target

Found the cutest jewelry at target today! You guys need to go check out their spring selection!

Old Navy Sale

So yesterday I had so much fun shopping at Old Navy with my mom and sister. I have finally hit a weight where I am comfortable again. (I had a baby last year so I have been dieting like crazy.)

Well I've basically been struggling for a few years to find my 'style' and it seems that I've finally settled on a clean and classic look. Im a younger mom (about to turn 24) so I want to look sophisticated but not old. Its tough to pull this look off. 

My first blog

Hey! So I'm fairly new to blogging but I have always enjoyed reading them. I have had a hard time finding blogs that cover the basics of my reading interests (clothes, makeup, handbags, ect) So I thought that I would start my own!
