SUMMER GLOW MUST-HAVE'S

Since being in Utah this week, I have been sick and a dried out momma!  So I wanted to share some of my favorite products that help keep my skin glowing and moisturized.  These also stay put for a day at the beach or by the pool, which I love even more.  I cannot live without my argon oil, and being here in Utah, I have been using it at night and also before I put my make up on to try and beat this dry weather.  Some of my favorite self tanners also help make my skin look smooth and healthy which I have shared below.  I naturally have dry skin so I like to use a highlighter on the high points of my cheeks to fake a glow when traveling.  I hope you guys check these out and let me know what you think!  Have a fabulous Sunday!

Mini Momma Vaca

Hi Lovelies!

I hope your having a great week so far.  I wanted to share my little Mother's Day vaca with you all.  I dont know if you guys feel the same but some holidays can be way more stressful than fun and I think we all have expectations that sometimes fall a little short.  Well for me Ive been married for 10 years and my husbands works on almost all holidays, so knowing that he would be home for this one I planned a little overnight getaway to Palm Springs at the cutest hotel called the AVALON.  Im so not a planner and neither is he, so I am bound and determined to become one.  Anyways, it turned into the most relaxing and romantic(if you can believe that) couple days for us.  I only wish I had taken more pictures of the room and little patio we sat and drank wine on after Van passed out for the night.  If you are ever in Palm Springs, I highly recommend this little hotel.  It had three pools, the cutest little lounge, and the best fresh juices served poolside.  They even have a pool designated for our little screaming babies, with high hedges and perfect cabanas for privacy!




















 We played in this little grassy area for hours while we were here, its right outside the pool and Van couldn't get enough.  It was so nice to let him wear himself out.  He spent half the time moving rocks from one side of the lawn to the other and then crawling up and down these little stairs.  
It truly was perfect.





Hope you all have a great weekend!

Mommas Day

Being a mom is pretty much the highlight of my life.  I loved being pregnant more than anything and felt so happy and content with life.  Honestly it was the first time in my life that I really loved myself, and I have the most perfect little guy to thank for that.  As cheesy as it sounds, he is everything to me!  This first year as a mom has been so hard and so amazing all in one, Im sure every mom feels this way.  As mothers day is almost here, the best mom advice I have to share is to think of everyday as your last.  I had the scariest experience with Van in the hospital for 8 days and it really makes you appreciate life as a momma.  I cherish every second with him, even though some days are harder than others.  I also had a friend lose her little boy this year and it hit me so hard.  So each day I wake up and squeeze Van just a little more, feeling so thankful I have him.  And his face is just too much goodness!!


We love watching for squirrels out his window!




I wanted to share just a little mom mushiness before I share some fun ideas for Mothers Day!  :)  Here are some of my favorite things that I know you will love, and I hope you use some ideas!  If your anything like me, you've waited until the last minute.  Hope these are helpful and you love them as much as I do! Hope your all having a great week!

Flares Flowing Tops and Flowers


I am in love with flares, and I'm so happy they are alive and well these days!  They are flattering on so many body types, and I always feel like my legs are on point in them, haha.  I'm sure its because I get to add a few extra inches to my legs with 4 inch wedges, yay! I found these amazing little guys at Nordstrom and they are under 100 dollars. and right now they are 40% off!!  Im always happy when a "cheaper" pair of jeans still looks expensive and fits well.

I hope your all excited for the weekend.  I'm a little extra happy because Van finally took a bottle and I see my freedom from nursing in my future.  Anyways, hope you guys check these out!  Xoxo

Belly Love

I would do anything for this little hunk of mine, so when the doctor said I should start Van on probiotics, I didn't think twice.  I know how important it has been for me to take them, and I wanted to do whatever I could to make sure Van was healthy!  He has been taking baby probiotics since he was born and I am a strong believer that he is so happy because his belly is happy.  Well, I hope other reasons too. :)  I won't go into crazy detail, but if you or your babies struggle with belly issues, not being able to go potty, getting sick all the time, taking lots of antibiotics, and a million other reasons, then you need to start taking this.



Probiotics build up your "good" gut bacteria, and since 70-80 percent of your immune system stems from your gut, it's even more important than we ever thought to have a healthy gut.

Here are my favorites!

Probiotics

This one is a no brainer, and I tell everyone I know to make this a priority.  It's so easy and it really makes a huge difference!  Hope your having a fabulous weekend!  It feels like summer here today and it makes me so excited for more beach days with my baby!!

Little Black Dress

Hi lovelies,
I am always looking for a great fitting black dress, and I was so happy when I found this one.  I feel like I can never have enough black dresses, and I wanted to share a few of my favorite ones with you guys!  This one is especially friendly because it stretches for those over indulgent nights out with your girlfriends or hunny!

Dresses


This style of dress is so great because you can throw a denim or leather jacket over it when you get chilly or need a little more coverage!

Hope you all have a great week!

Beach Babes

I am literally obsessed with my little man.  I don't know if every mom feels that way, but I just love his face and his little personality so much.  Anyways, we did a little photo session for the company Hey You Apparel and I was dying over how big and handsome Van has gotten.  After going through such a hard time for the past few months we are taking every second with him and loving it!

Hey You Apparel uses classic styles that I love and they make your babies even cuter than they already are!  Go check them out!  Hey You Apparel



 I just die for these two!!

 




Hope you all have a great week!!
