Detox Oil


I didn't think twice when people started talking about oil pulling a while ago, but after doing some research and wanting a way to naturally whiten and strengthen my teeth, I gave it a try.  I am seriously loving the results and will continue doing it for all the other health benefits.
After having Van I am looking for ways to improve my health mostly for his benefit now.  I am a firm believer that what I'm putting into my body is directly effecting him.  I want to give him the best start I possibly can!



Oil pulling can help with:
 asthma
arthritis
allergies
chronic fatigue
diabetes
migraine headaches
PMS
and chronic skin problems. 
Oil pulling works by detoxifying or cleansing the body. In this way, disease promoting toxins are removed, thus allowing the body to heal itself.

I just put a big tablespoon in my mouth and let it melt before swishing, otherwise its pretty gag worthy, I do it for about 20 minutes while I get ready, then spit it out and rinse.  So simple, cheap and easy for anyone to do!

I've noticed more energy, whiter teeth, brighter eyes, and my sinuses are more clear.  Hope you guys give it a try!  I will be sharing more detox ideas in the weeks coming up!!

Van's Nursery

I am usually such a saver and dont really like to splurge much, 
BUT...  when it came to Vans nursery I went kinda crazy!  I love simple classic style, and after finding so many cute ideas on Pinterest, I did my best creating my now favorite room in the house!  My mom made the cutest bumpers for him and Kev built the wood piece for our deer head.  I love the personal touches!  There may be some drapes in the near future but I like it for now!  I think when we finally do move him into his room, he will love it as much as we do!

Spring Fever

I am loving sharing all my favorite things, and I thought it would be fun to share some fun spring ideas I have and other things I want.  I feel like these things transition well into spring and it gives you lots of time to get out there and stock up before the sun comes out for good!

My favorite thing right now is silky, printed shorty robes, and Nordstrom has the cutest ones ever by Josie!


robes
     

Forever 21 is the best place to get fun spring staples and I found some really cute ones on my last shopping trip there!  I can never get enough of these white hats for summer!  I bought this knockoff of a Cleobella bag that Im in love with.  Its huge, and the cutest color, and I love the fringe.  And I love a denim jacket with a hoody attached.  So cute and comfy!
Forever 21


And last a few of my favorite go to beauty products: Costco has the best lighted Vanity mirrors for such great prices, my absolute favorite lip gloss by Nars in Turkish Delight, and Sigma Kabuki brush and spa brush cleaner.

Maternity Beach Day

We set up a day with the amazing photographer Noel from Bosh Images for our holiday cards and I was so lucky to have her take some really fun bump pictures too.  I couldn't believe how comfortable I was with her and how much I loved the finish products.  I wanted to share them and share some of my favorite parts of being prego! 







I really am so surprised at how much I have loved being pregnant.  Its probably the first time in my life I have loved my body, and felt amazing watching it grow bigger everyday.  Not to sound too cheesy, but I am so sad to see this bump go and have felt so proud to be a woman and get to grow a human in my belly!  My favorite part of the day is waking up with my bump, and checking the mirror to see how its grown over the night.  I talk way too often about my belly and being pregnant and luckily I have the best girls ever at work that listen to my ramblings.  

Kevin has been a dream husband, telling me I'm beautiful everyday and how great I'm doing.  I wont go too much into how amazing he is but I am THE luckiest girl ever!!

Whats in My Makup Bag?

I always love to see what people's go-to makeup look is, so I thought it might be fun to do one for my favorite look.  These are the makeup products I use almost everyday, with some variations in lipstick and eyes.  
I LOVE TARTE and would probably use everything from them if I had the whole line but I also love to mix in some Mac and The Balm.  What are your go to makeup products? 


1.)  Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation: LOVE this stuff. even though its full coverage, it is so light and gives such a flawless finish without looking like too much makeup!

2.)  Nude Tude Pallet by The Balm: Love love love this pallet.  Its got the most gorgeous colors, and comes with matte and shimmer.  The colors really brighten your eyes and make them pop in pictures!

3.)  Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush: These Bright and gorgeous colors look good on anyone and they are super pigmented!

4.)  Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof concealer:  I cannot rave enough about this amazing product.  I have tried everything and this is only one that keeps my eyes hydrated and my dark circles covered. 

5.)  Tarte Mineral Bronzer: This bronzer is so pretty for contouring and for giving your face a nice    overall glow.   

6.)  Origins Ginzing Mascara:  I really love this mascara, it separates your lashes and makes them look really long and pretty!

7.)  Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow powder: All of her brow products are amazing and they come in so many great colors.  My favorite is the brow powder and the brow pencil.  Both together are great so you can make sure the front of your brows stay soft and natural looking. 

8.)  Mac Lipstick: I usually go for the soft pink colors in mac for an everyday look. 


Hope you like this idea and I would love to hear what your favorites makeup lines are and why!
