Summertime means SUNNIES! Here are 4 of my current faves. You can never have too many pairs of sunglasses, right?!
Keep it on the sunny side,
Finding the perfect blush can be exhausting. Whether you are looking to warm up your complexion, add a young and fresh glow or highlight your amazing cheekbones, there are a million colors and brands to choose from and it can become overwhelming. And bad blush is…. well… BAD. These are 3 of my favorite colors! I tend to wear more pink on my cheeks than peaches, reds or browns but these 3 shades will work with almost any skin-tone.
This e.l.f. Baked Highlighter is light and shimmery! I like to use it on top of my other blushes. It illuminates and highlights your skin. This little compact is infused with Vitamin E, Jojoba, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape. What?! Yep, you read that right. Apply this shimmering color wet or dry. I’ve even used it on the inner corners of my eyes, and as an eyeshadow. Win, win, win!
This blush is a bit more pigmented than the others I use. Bobbi Brown makes the silkiest and smoothest makeup. This blush gives your cheeks a natural-looking pop of PINK! I like to wear this color more in the summer when my skin tone is a bit darker. It has a matte finish and glides on smoothly for a long-lasting wear.
Truth be told… THIS blush is my all-time FAVE! I wear this color on my cheeks on most days. It is solar-baked and promises to last up to 12 hours. The name comes from the fact that this blush is infused with natural clay that has been harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and baked by the sun. Well, ok then! This color fits all skin types. Got oily skin? The clay in this blush minimizes oil in and around pores. Got dry skin? The clay in this blush has nourishing and hydrating properties which help restore skin’s moisture. Combo skin? Don’t worry, you can rely on its ability to restore your “complexion harmony.” Just trust me, this blush is the BOMB.
I am always up to try a new brand or color so send me your faves! I’d love to hear from you!
There is nothing better or EASIER to wear than a peplum top. Couple that with a plaid summer pattern and convertible sleeves and this is one perfect outfit. Shop my look below: (linking my zebra print chair for fun)

Hang in there hot stuff! One more day!
While most of us are undoubtedly filling our 4 day weekend with hot dogs, celebration and fun in the sun, don’t forget to take a moment to remember what Memorial Day is truly about. Today we must remember the courageous men and women who have payed the ultimate price for our freedoms. Memorial day is for those who have died during combat while serving this great nation. Today while you are drinking beer and floating in a pool, take notice at the flags that are flying at half staff… don’t forget to pause for a National Moment of Remembrance at 3pm local time… for this holiday is more than what we give it.
“I am oppressed with a sense of the impropriety of uttering words on this occasion […] If silence is ever golden, it must be beside the graves of fifteen-thousand men, whose lives were more significant than speech, and whose death was a poem the music of which can never be sung.”
James A. Garfield – Civil War General, Republican Congressman and 20th U.S. President
I love nothing more than a big ole, in your face, out of nowhere, pop of color! We wear a LOT of camo at our house. We consider it our family color. I know that may sound silly to some, but we work hard to be a great team in our house and a great team needs a great color. We are a house full of adventure seekers, adrenaline junkies, fighters, warriors, athletes, hard workers, and rough and tumblin’ boys… What other color could we choose? So, when we as a family sport our “family color”, I throw in some hot pink. What else is this “Boy Mom” to do?! Shop the look below:
Camo Tennis shoes here, here, here & here // Hot pink laces // Exact distressed denim here – Similar distressed denim here & here // Similar Hot pink Sunnies here, here – Exact pink sunnies here & here // Essie polish in “Coconut Cove” (clearly I am wearing this color a LOT lately)
Happy Friday and hello to a long weekend!
