Spring is finally in the air here in Utah and I am so so happy about it! So I am beyond ready for some nice warm weather and to see the sun again! Besides loving the warm weather and seeing everything in bloom, I love seeing the new trends in Spring fashion! It is always full of the cutest prints + colors! One of my favorite things to shop for is Spring Shoes! Something about the weather being warm enough to free your feet or seeing the pops of color just gets me so excited for the season, so today I’m sharing my favorites!
So one of my favorite sales of the season is here! This week there’s a big sale going on over at Shopbop. So today, I’m sharing some of the best items from the sale. A bunch of the pieces sold there are higher end, so this is a good chance to grab them at a discount because everything, including sale items are all on sale!! Use the code EVENT18 for up to 25% off some of the best, on trend items. I love stocking up on item I know will be perfect for the upcoming spring & summer months because them I’m all set when the warm weather finally comes!
Knowing Harper is our last baby has been such a different experience. I think for us, it has reminded us to enjoy every little minute since these will be our last “baby firsts”. When it came to designing Harper’s Nursery, I really wanted to savor every minute. I knew it was the last little nursery I’d be creating. So I really wanted it to be a place I loved that I could soak up allll the baby goodness in. If you remember in our California home I had my sweet friend, Annalisa from Oilo Studio help me help put her creative touch on the space. Cause she’s amazing + her eye for modern baby design is out of this world. I could not be happier with how it turned out!
If you’ve been following along here on the blog, you might remember that about 6 months ago I mentioned I am really trying to focus on taking better care of my skin. I kind of put it through all the tanning and sun damage as a teenager, and now that I’m getting older I have realized its time to put the investment + time into really taking care of it. I’ve been working with the team over at Form Med Spa and absolutely loving their treatments. I’ve shared some peeks into those over on my Instagram Stories and got lots of requests for more details! I thought the best way I could share and give you all the info is to highlight each treatment! So today I’m starting off with one of my very favorites, the HydraFacial.
When it comes to dinner time around here, I am all about quick and easy recipes! We are usually in between activities or homework for the little people, so I need things that I know we will all love, but don’t take slaving away all day to make! So a couple of months ago I shared our favorite enchilda recipe and got a lot of requests for more ideas! I finally had time to get a few together, so I thought it would be the perfect fit for today’s Favorite Finds!
One of the things I probably get the most requests for is my daily routine to get ready! To make it easier and as informative as I can, I’ve been breaking it down into sections in different posts. I shared about my daily beauty routine last week + what I’m doing to invest in my skin, and my 5 minute makeup routine here! That leaves the best for last, my hair routine! I’ve been doing hair for almost 17 years now (that makes me feel old!), so you could say I’ve got my method kind of down to a perfected routine! I decided the best way to share my go to favorites is to walk you through from wet to dry + styled!
When it comes to having 5 little people, keeping things clean + organized can be a challenge. For Joe + I, we wanted chores to be more than just pitching in to keep the house clean. We wanted it to be a way to teach our little people more about responsibility at the same time. So when my friend Merrick recommended I check out the idea of a “family economy” from Ralphie over at Simply on Purpose, my mind was blown! It was almost exactly what we were looking for for our family. We’ve made a few tweaks and customizations to fit our needs, but so far have loved how it works! Since it is working so well for us, I thought I’d share it with you today in case it can benefit you too!
Spending time soaking up the sun in Arizona celebrating our anniversary has me all kinds of ready for summer! I am such a summer girl so I seriously cannot wait!! Heading to the pool (or beach even more!) with my little people is so fun, but I am well aware how much of a struggle it can be to find good swimsuits! I did a lot of research trying to find swimsuits I love for our trip, so I decided today for my Favorite Finds I’d share the styles I’m loving most!
As a mom of 5, it’s rare that I come across something new in the parenting world – especially in the baby years. I’ve been to this rodeo five times over now, so coming across something new with Harper or Houston that I haven’t already experienced with one of the others is rare. I was thrown for a loop when both Houston + Harper came along with such sensitive skin. Since their skin was so sensitive I wasn’t willing to compromise on whatever touched it. After searching and finding the things that worked best for us, I’m sharing what I’m loving most for my babies and how I care for their sensitive skin.
Lately I’ve been getting so many questions on different details of my daily beauty routine. I thought it would be nice to finally get it all down in one easy to refer back to place. Sticking to and actually even having this whole routine has not always been the case. When we moved to Utah + Joe started his job, I felt like we were finally in a place financially where I could invest in really taking care of my skin. I haven’t always used these products, and know what its like to be in a place where drugstore products is what you can afford. So I’ve included a few on a lower budget that I loved using too!
