Lately I have been completely obsessed with podcasts. Specifically the How I Built This podcast and I had this life changing moment listening to Yvon the owner of Patagonia and hearing his story. I was so so so inspired – like really felt the need to seriously change some things about my life. I have thought about these things before so it really hit me hearing him talk about them. You will have to listen to the episode to really get the full message but he talked a lot about how important it is so buy things that we plan to keep for a very long time. And he also said how people tend to think a minimal/simple life is an impoverished life but it is in fact a rich life. That resonated with me because especially these last couple years I have felt really frivolous with what I purchase.Continue reading
The Anniversary Sale is now live for anyone to shop so I wanted to share some favorites. The first being these work out looks! I have been really diligent with working out and love having cute stuff to wear. For bottoms I honestly don’t care how cute they are though I just want a good fit. These blue leggings are evverything!!! They are a thick material that is super flattering and makes everything look nice and smooth. Honestly if you find leggings that make your butt look good then thats all that matters right? haha 😉 I also got these two tanks which I love!
Every year I always have my little list that I get every year and one of them is my Donna Karan deodorant trio!!!! If you haven’t tried it yet, you need to, and your life will change! My second is I love to get denim.Continue reading
Rosie Belle! Some of those faces she is making in the photos just show her personality so perfectly. She is a happy and giggly girl with a lot of sass haha! She learned to roll her eyes at me and does it and then giggles – its so funny. My kids are obsessed with lipstick – are anyone else’s?! They always want to help me put it on and then put it on themselves. We all know what happens with Rosie and lipstick though (see here if you missed it) so I have to keep my eye on that one.
The kiddos and I had so much fun swimming tonight. It was cloudy and really nice weather this evening and the pool was perfect temperature. They are super comfortable around water now too which makes it fun because we can jump off the diving board and play fun games.Continue reading
It is Tuesday already!!! Ah. I am so mixed up on my days this week I don’t know why. David left town yesterday and will be gone fishing all week in Alaska! He went with my dad, brother, and bro in laws. So just me and the kiddies this week! Kinda excited because my sisters and I just wanna have sleepovers all week haha 🙂 I might take the kids on a mini road trip to the mountains too. Atticus won some points tonight when I was editing photos and he kept kissing my face on the computer screen and tickling my back — that boy knows how to shmoooze it up 😉
The other day for a Barefoot Blonde Hair photo shoot we got popsicles and this is what I wore! My sister married into this awesome family and a couple of the boys and one of their wives started this fun popsicle truck and they make homemade pops.Continue reading
FRIDAY!!!!! Yay! What are your weekend plans? I am taking the kids to go with me to see my grandma today and then tomorrow we might go to the lake. I know I already shared these images on insta stories but because they disappear I thought I would share them on here too. And because this is one of my favorite sales and they have soooo many good things on sale! I think there are more good things this time than any other Anniversary Sale!
Hope you guys have a good weekend!!!!!Continue reading
One of the reasons I am happy to be in Arizona is because I get to see my grandma a lot! She is such a ray of sunshine. She is so happy all of the time and I always love her little bits of advice on how to be happy. I want to get her on a vlog one day so you guys can hear some of her thoughts because I think you guys would love her too! She always comments on the clothes I wear and shows my blog to everyone haha! Anyways, one thing that makes me happy is anything colorful – I love adding bright colors to my closet. That is why I love Kate Spade pieces – I love all of the color!! How fun are these shoes? And I love to have a red bag because I love to match it to red lipstick as a fun accent.Continue reading
Hope you all had a good weekend! Today we had dinner at my parents with everyone and both tortoises came out to say hi! We got these tortoises when they were babies forevvver ago and now they are huge! They mostly hide in their big hole they duck in the backyard so the kids were excited to see both of them out. Their names are Chuck and Garson! And today I have a 12 things for ya..Obsessed with Trader Joes. I know I am late to this obsession but it was never close to us and always crowded in NYC and they don’t have one in Hawaii. So now I get to experience the greatness!!!! I love their pre made meals in the fridge section! also their instant oatmeal is soooo good and way better than the Quaker stuff I have had my whole life. Continue reading
I know I posted this shirt in yesterday’s post but I wanted to share the whole look because I loved it and obviously that price point can’t be beat! A lot of you asked about shopping at Romwe — it is a Chinese company (from what I gather) and that explains why it takes so long to ship. The quality is comparable to Forever 21 or ASOS in my opinion. I ordered about 20 things (they also have a 60% off coupon code so check the site to see if its still there!) and I loved all of mine. What I would say about this site is don’t expect to return anything .. I am pretty sure you have to pay for shipping if you want to return and obviously it isn’t cheap getting stuff to China. So just keep that in mind I guess. And again this is not sponsored but just wanted to answer those questions you guys had!Continue reading
We are back in Arizona after our week with family in Utah. I want to do a post from the weekend but don’t want to rush it so today’s post is a round up of some of the outfits I have worn on social media lately. I did a big haul and got tons of stuff $25 and under so I am going to try to include all price points more often! I think investment pieces are good but its also fun to just get cheap, cute stuff sometimes! Everything I ordered I loved. I hadn’t ordered from Romwe since college – it takes a long time to ship (over two weeks) but I loved all the pieces. (this is not sponsored btw).
Hope you guys had a great Fourth of July!!! Full of BBQ’n and family fun. Thanks for all your sweet messages over the weekend.Continue reading
Happy hump day!! I feel like an actual camel lately because we have been trying to drink a gallon of water a day and it is more challenging than it sounds, at least for me. Mainly because I forget to …
