Cyber Monday Round Up

I am so happy Cyber Monday exists! If you are like me and my family, we do not shop on Black Friday. The last thing I want to go the day after Thanksgiving is go out to a mall and shop with mobs of people. The Friday after Thanksgiving in our family is about relaxing and spending time together. Cyber Monday is so my jam! Not only is it a disaster to go out during the holidays with a toddler, it's just so much easier ordering everything online with just a few clicks. I compiled a list of my favorite Cyber Monday sales - Most of this stuff is 40%-50% off !!!  Enjoy your shopping!

The Perfect Midi Skirt for Thanksgiving

It's Monday and it's the week of Thanksgiving! I am all sorts of giddy, I love Thanksgiving and the holiday season. The whole family gathers at my mother in laws house and it's a day filled with joy, laughter and tons of food. It's exactly how the holidays should be, It really reminds us how thankful we are for all the we have!

I love to dress up for the holidays, when I spotted this midi skirt I thought it would be perfect for the holidays! I threw on this olive green button down and brown booties to give this look a more relaxed feel. You can pair a printed midi skirt with a knit sweater and some heels for a dressier holiday look.

If you follow along my Instastories, you may have seen my major collection of lip color.  As 
I was cleaning and organizing my makeup I decided to do a round up of my favorite colors
for this season. The majority of these were bought at the drug store andwere under $10.  
(Which explains why I have so many colors).

This is a perfect lip color for the fall - The color is in the name! It's rich color really makes a
subtle statement. Sometimes I like a little color and this is a subtle stand out . The Colour Riche
collection is rich in color, creamy and super hydrating on my lips.  My favorite for this season.

I absolutely love the Colour Riche collection so I purchased several colors! For a more stand out
look  this darker shade is my favorite for a dramatic look. This color is not quite red nor is it
brown it's its own shade, cinnamon is the perfect name for it! 

Guys! I love this matte liquid color and this color nude flush is my perfect color! I've always spent
money on matte glosses as I have found the drug store brands are not quite as good as the high end
brands. I'm so happy I gave this one a try because I love it ! My go to lip color is a nude/blush lip 
I've tried brand after brand and theres only a few that have come close to that perfect color and this is
one of them!  I love to line my lip with a liner thats a few shades darker and blend for perfect
everyday look.

I hate lip gloss, I hate sticky gooey lip gloss! I hate when my hair gets stuck in my lip gloss, I hate
drinking & eating with lip gloss! I'm just not a fan. This revlon lip gloss was made for me, shiny and
glossy with out the sticky feel! I purchased this gloss in the color snow pink it's very light.

MAC is a go to for me for lipsticks, lets be real here mac has some great lip colors! This color cherish
 is a fun shade of nude. Described as "soft muted peachy-beige" It's really all about a clean look with
 this lip color. I love throwing this on when Im going with a dramatic smokey eye!

Moments that make my heart happy!

Sundays in the fall are my absolute favorite! In our house sunday is about family,  Chris usually watches football, I cook a favorite meal of ours and we all just enjoy each others company. Yesterday we decided to take a bike ride and spent some time outside since the weather was PERFECT! Cameron is a typical boy who loves cars and playing in the outdoors. He's restless and adventurous and so full of energy so we love spending our days outside.  It's days like these that fill my heart with memories and make me happy!

Something else that makes me happy, home decor . I recently discovered Cstudio Home, a company that's all about putting a modern spin on old traditions. With the weather cooling down I picked out this striped blanket from Cstudio Home and it's Amazing! It's super cozy and soft, softer than a baby's bottom :) LITERALLY . The best part about it, it's so big, Chris myself and Cameron can all snuggle under it while watching t.v. on the couch. It's also thick enough to be used outdoors which is exactly what we did on sunday while Cameron played .

Life is about moments that make your heart happy and my happy moments are spent with my family!

Hello November

Hello November we meet again! There's something about this November that I am so excited about! Maybe it's the change of scenery for us, I mean that's basically our backyard (the pictures above) ... maybe it's because Cameron's older and I can't wait for him to experience the holidays.. what ever it is I am all sorts of giddy.

I absolutely love this shoot that Cassondre and I did - It really captured how beautiful it is was here in the Fall. Cassondre has such a great eye for colors and capturing pretty moments and she did just that.

I found this pretty maxi dress from Banana Republic Factory and thought it would make for a perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. If you've been following along, you know that I love layering and this piece is perfect for just that. Of course this shoot was just focusing on the staple piece, the dress. Picture this maxi, a cute suede moto jacket and some over the knee boots, now thats a great fall look!

*This dress is currently 30% off at Banana Republic Factory


Halloween Fun

I've always loved the holidays but now that I have a kid its on another level. Cameron is 21 months old so he doesn't really fully understand Halloween. He learned how to say "trick or treat" and loved the halloween decorations and seeing all of the costumes at the Halloween parade. 

We Dressed Cameron up as the man in the yellow hat because he just loves Curious George so much. I love DIY and crafts so I made Cameron's costume again this year and I have to say, I am happy with the way that It turned out. I mean he just looked so cute.

I decided to dress up last minute seeing how much Cameron was liking Halloween I throw together this Witch costume! I wore a black dress and some green face make up with the necessary witches hat and broom and viola , a quick and easy and chic halloween costume!

We had such a great time this Halloween, there's nothing better than seeing your childs face light up! I can't wait for next year and dressing up hopefully as a family costume.

Hope your Halloween was just as great as ours!
