Lipstick Favorites!

Lipstick Faves

I love wearing lipstick, it’s my go-to when I’m too lazy to put some foundation on! It just really gives you that put together vibe. And let’s be honest, with little babies there’s no way I can go all out on my makeup routine so for now lipstick it is! So hey, why not share some of my favorite lipsticks at the moment. Here’s my 5 go-to colors right now..

Stila, Bacca: I love this berry pink color! It’s a perfect color for spring/summer. I also love that I don’t have to keep reapplying it because it seriously lasts all day! And it doesn’t stain my babies when I kiss them!

 

MAC, Mehr: This is my everyday color it’s the perfect amount of pink to give your natural lips some color. It has just the right amount of moisturizer so it almost feels like your wearing chapstick. I absolutely love it!

 

Lancôme, Out with a bang: Probably one of my favorite pink/purple shades. Even though it’s a matte, it doesn’t make your lips feel dry.

 

MAC,  Fanfare: I got this color last year for my birthday and it’s almost completely empty. I wore it all of my pregnancy till I found the shade Mehr. It’s a perfect orange that doesn’t look too bright. Love it!

 

Nars, Red Lizard: There are so many different shades of red out there and this is definitely one of my favorites. I usually wear this when I’m feeling and looking exhausted and need something to brighten my face and give it that POP!

I love smooching my kids and I almost always get lipstick on them but hey they won’t be this small for long and one day they wont let me smooch them anymore, so I’ll keep doing it and I’ll keep wiping their face.

P.s. Dezi loves my lipsticks too..

Hope y’all enjoyed this post, have a wonderful day!

// Necklace: Jimani Collections “Kisiwa Glass” //


Today I decided to wear my new necklace and I just fell in love with it. The glass beads just lit up everytime the sun touched them and the gold really went well with my outfit. They have tons of other styles and colors I might have to get a few more. Not only did I really like the way that this necklace looked but I also felt good about wearing it and showing it off because the company that makes these was created to help Kenyan women build a better life for themselves. I really like the traditional African materials and how it was hand made it just gives it a saturday market custom piece feeling. I have teamed up with Jimani Collections to offer you a 20% off all orders using code SMILE. This code will run for Two weeks happy shopping!

Trips To The Park W/ FP

//Shoes: Freshly Picked //


Quick trips to the park have never been so easy with out our Freshly Picked Moccs. Not only are these a breeze to put on Gavin but they are also super durable and never come off when he is climbing and crawling around on the playground. These shoes have already been through a lot and the material that they are constructed with like the nice leather just keeps looking better and better. Although Gavin isnt quite up to walking yet he is a super active 9 month old and these shoes havent come off of him yet. Im never worrying about retracing our steps looking for a lost shoe. This is definitely the reason we keep putting them on his feet. Where ever we go we can quickly and easily put them on with any outfit and people are always giving us compliments on them. Another reason that i like them so much is that if i do need to take them off for some reason i can always just slip them in the diaper bag or my husbands pocket. I couldnt imagine our lives with out these if you havent gotten a pair for your little one you really need to check in to it. You wont regret the simple style and the tough construction. I did a giveaway last week and the winner is….. @Irazu_salgado thank you all for entering. Have a wonderful day. Xox

Welcome Spring

Spring is finally here! Wohoo! I love spring because it means summer is near. The days get longer and the weather gets warmer, which means I will be able to take the kids outside so they can play and hopefully burn off some of their never ending energy.

With winter coming to an end I decided it’d be the perfect timing to add some color to my wardrobe. I bought this skirt a few weeks ago and I finally got the opportunity to wear it this past week when I went to do a photo shoot with my sister in law. It was so nice out! I love days like those where I don’t have to wear a sweater or add extra layers because it’s cold or rainy. Instead I get to wear pretty skirts and dresses!

I am so glad that midi skirts have continued to stay in style, and they sure don’t seem to be going away any time soon. There is just something about a good midi skirt that gives the outfit a simple yet classy look. The one I am wearing is by Choies and I love it. The colors are so vibrant and the spring details give it so much character. I plan on wearing it for Easter since the flowers and blossoms seem so fitting for the occasion. I hope you all enjoy the first day of spring! Thanks for reading. Xoxo ❤

Hey everybody! Can you believe Easter is a couple weeks away!? This year is flying by! One of my favorite parts about Easter is picking out a special dress for my little Dezi, and dressing her up for church on Easter Sunday. I love to see all the little girls in their Easter Dresses! Personally, I tend to favor florals for Easter, but I also love a touch of solid and stripes! This morning I went out and looked for Dezi and found so many adorable ones. They are so cute, I wish that I could get them in my size! 😉 Here are a few of my favorites from today in case you still need to grab the perfect dress for your little! Links above. Have a wonderful day. Xox
