Yep…another dress, but can you honestly blame me that I’d want to wear something that feels like pajama’s all day?! Haha. The weather here in Cali has been kinda crazy. One day it will be 85 degrees and a few days later 65 degrees. I love that the material of this dress is kinda thin so I feel like I can layer a jacket or cardigan over the top and not feel like I’m dying. Also did I mention this dress is over 30% off?!

TO THE MAX

Hem lines are taken to the max for Spring this year. With the 70’s trend coming back strong and the comfort of a simple tee style dress, a maxi dress is a great way to update your wardrobe. You can pick from a more bohemian look or stay clean and classic with a crisp stripe. Take a look at our favorites you can wear for day or night or even to dress the bump.

4MOMS : MamaRoo + Breeze Playard

So as we all know between Megan and I…we have gone through many baby items + companies. As I am getting closer to having my last and finally babe, (and with a rather large gap between my last baby) I just knew the market had to have changed a ton. Products now are so much more high tech + totally parent geared and not to mention so much more modern. It’s all about ease and simplifying. So I have been on the search for a few fabulous items including a more compact baby swing. The more I started looking + chatting with people 4moms is all I kept hearing/seeing around. Talk about making your life a whole lot easier…4moms products are defiantly a game changer. They have put a twist on almost every original baby item and made it dramatically better!!

I just got the MamaRoo Plush Bouncer and I nearly died!! This thing is amazing! Honestly they have thought of everything…from assembly + packaging + storing for next baby + modern day technology like operating it with your iphone!! Yes you heard me right…your phone. My kids have not stopped playing with our MamaRoo since we got it + Hayden can hardly stand to not have it swaying or rocking her baby 24/7. I on the other hand can not wait to put our new babe in it + I just know it is going to help me regain those few moments you need to snuggle my other kids or throw in a load of laundry. They also have a Newborn Insert that I am planning on getting to use for those first couple of months when baby is so little.

Seriously, both the Plush MamaRoo + the MamaRoo are equally amazing! They both recline and both have the built in sound and plug-in for your phone, and the Newborn Insert work for both as well.

Another favorite I’ve been dying to try is the Breeze Playard + Breeze Waterproof Playard Sheet. You can totally set up the playard with just one hand! Amazing! Not only is it a breeze to set up… I love how easy the bassinet portion is to assemble and how easy it is to carry and disassemble. 4moms got it right – these are baby essentials for sure.

EASY EVERYDAY MAKEUP

Sometimes we get asked about our makeup routine as busy moms. It’s important to have a look that is natural and gives our skin an all over even glow. The worst is looking tired even when we’ve had a sleepless night. Here is a basic makeup routine you can use everyday to look refreshed and beautiful, but not over done. Just one of our favorites with great makeup staples.

 

EVERYDAY MAKEUP STEPS

 

FACE

  • After you have moisturized, place some of this color corrector under you eyes with the tip of your index finger. It’s amazing for covering up dark circles, or any imperfections on your face.
  • Then, layer with this amazing tinted moisturizer all over your face. Not only does it give sun coverage, but it will even out your skin tone and give you that dewy glow that is youthful and refreshing.

CHEEKS

  • The Nars Laguna Bronzer is the perfect color.  It adds warmth without making your face look dull. Apply this to the forehead and draw it down around the face, across the cheekbones, along your chin and down your nose. With the remainder lightly set your under eye area.
  • For a subtle shimmer and more glow, the Nars multi stick is amazing.  It brightens your cheeks, acting as a blush. So easy to apply.

EYES

  • Start with a soft eye liner right next to your lash line. This mac pencil in the “Lord it Up” gold color is pretty with just a touch of sparkle. It’s a subtle gold color, a little more fun than a heavy black or dark brown.
  • Keep the eyes simple for day. If you don’t have false lashes but want the look start with a primer.  It thickens your lashes prepping them for mascara.
  • This Extreme Party Mascara by Bobbi Brown is unique patented to not dry out as you add layers. So layer away over your primer to create thick, long lashes.

LIPS

  • To give the allusion of a plumper limp start with a liner. The Nars lip pencil comes in a variety of really natural shades that add volume without looking obvious.
  • Then blend with a creamy lip stick like this Bobbi Brown.  It’s so smooth and pretty.
  • If you like the glossy look, layer it over the top. Again, Nars has the most amazing natural colors.

If you are looking for a go to routine for your daily makeup this will do the trick.  Once you have done it a couple of times it only takes 5 minutes and looks flawless. Have fun with it and have a great weekend!
