Wish list Wednesday.....


Hey, hey...Happy Hump Day!!

I've got some really good things for today's list. Now that I have my closet all neat and cleared out, it has me craving some new pieces. 

I have been on the hunt for a casual white blazer for quite some time now. When I saw this one on the Anniversary sale I knew just the two looks I wanted to create. 
*Remember the sale ends this weekend!

This one for now


And this one for fall

Keeping with the jackets, I just grabbed this one at the sale. Last year I never jumped on the fake 
(or the real for that matter) leather trend. I regretted it all year. After I saw the reviews and the price I knew I would be a fool not to grab this one. Real leather for $200.00 is a crazy good buy, plus it's really pretty. 

And it comes in black if tan isn't your thing.

Now back to summer clothes since it's hot as you know what outside! 

This is the most adorable tunic I have ever seen and the reviews say the pictures don't even do it justice. It would be another amazing transitional piece too and would look good with that white blazer. 





Knowing my love for pink, is it any surprise that I want this? I love nothing more than a pink lip and a pink nail so this was love at first sight for me.
I love that this looks like a solid top and a fun skirt, but it's really a dress. Plus, it's on sale right now for a pretty great price. 


I am not always a fan of the Equipment blouses, because they are usually to boxy on me. But the new slim fit looks amazing, it's more "slim" in on the sides. I love this snake print, and the fact it's on major sale, plus 20% off that ! Use code EXTRA20OFF. And shop all other sale items here. This stripe one and teal are gorgeous as well.
Last, I have such a peanut head that sunglasses are always hard for me to find. They usually take up my entire face. I think these 56mm would be just perfect. I love how classic they are too, and the fact that they are polarized.  

And by the way I loved all of your comments yesterday! It was so fun to see what you guys never left the house without. I think mascara was listed the most, so looks I may need to add that one to my list :)

I don't leave home without my face on......

When my brother and I were little my mother used to say, "Hold on guys, I've gotta put my face on." What my mom was actually saying is she had to put her makeup on. This always happened, no matter where we were going. My mom didn't wear a lot of makeup, but I remember her ALWAYS looking beautiful and put together.

Funny thing is I have started using this saying. Isn't it interesting the things that stick with us from childhood. Anyways, the point to my story, just like my mother, I do not leave the house without makeup on. Not sure if this was a learned trait, an insecurity thing, or the fact that I just feel more put together and pretty with makeup on. Maybe a little of all three if I had to guess. I even wear a full face when I go to the gym (sometimes I skip the eye makeup though).

Again, back to the point. Yesterday I went out in public with a bare face. This was not necessarily done on purpose, but none the less, it happened. I was rushing yesterday morning to get Carson to swim lessons and barely got my teeth brushed. I was okay with hitting the pool bare faced because I had my sunglasses on, but then my girlfriend and I decided to run home, change the kids, and hit Chick-fil-a. I didn't have time to put anything on my face because it was getting close to nap time, and I knew our lunch time would be limited as it was. 

All was fine and I survived with no makeup (I was secretly praying I wouldn't run into anyone though). All of this said, this got my girlfriend and I talking about makeup and some of the things we pretty much NEVER leave the house without. You know every girl has these, but mine, I find are usually quite different from others so I thought I would share. Powder, bronzer, blush and pink lipgloss. Here are my favorites that I wear daily. 

Powder in medium beige // Blush in Berry Pop // Lipgloss in Ring Leader Bronzer in Sunkissed




My friend Kelly's were mascara, concealer, and lip gloss. I asked her what concealer she used, because gasp, I don't use any!! And that is not because I don't need it because trust me I do. I've just never found one I loved. She swears I will love this one, so I am taking the plunge on it! She also promised it will last a long time because $41.00 for concealer ain't exactly cheap :) 

So what are your 'I can't leave the house without' makeup items? No really, I want to know.

* Also thought you would like to know this cover-up that I have just got marked down almost half off!! I am kicking myself for not waiting!!! Hey, we live and learn right :) Sadly I never seem to learn ha!
Plus you can get free shipping today with the code JUSTBECAUSE!!!! They never do free shipping!!


* And these jeans that I ordered arrived yesterday. If you are in need of some amazing black jeans grab these before all the sizes go!! Plus, added bonus you get to size down because they stretch out, these are a size 25 :) You can't beat this price for Hudson jeans :) O yeah, and do you see what else came in..... my nude pumps! I loved my pink ones so much I just couldn't help myself and I know they will go with everything this fall!
Note, these jeans were a little long on me so I just rolled them up (I am kinda digging the rolled up look this year).


Last, my beautiful friend Way Way, no seriously I have a major girl crush on her is is launching her pop up shop today at Furbish! Sale starts at 11:00 am, so be ready!!

This piece I have of hers is currently needing a frame, but it's one of my all time favorites! 

And didn't I tell you she was beautiful? You girl crushing now too?

Getting Organized

Happy Monday Loves!!

For the first time ever I spent the whole weekend all by myself!! Todd was off with the guys at a bachelor party and the kids were at my parents with their cousins. In my head I thought it was going to be just blissful. I had plans to watch lots of TV, drink wine, and clean out all the closets. But, I woke up on Saturday sad, missing my family, and feeling really unmotivated. So, I decided to take a little shopping trip for some new lamps for Taylor's room, which I have been on the hunt for, and grab a few things I wanted to start my organizing. I came home with my new goodies and dove into to my closet first. Well, after I put Taylor's new lamps up of course :) I love the way they look in her "big girl" (sniff sniff) room.




Holy, I've never busted my ass so much, batman. I kid you not, I started on my closet at 2:00 pm and I finished at 1:00 am. I am one of those people though, that once I get going I just can't stop. Then on Sunday I woke up early and tackled our bathroom (the drawers, cabinets, etc), the pantry, the refrigerator, Taylor's closet, and Carson's closet. 






Have you ever wondered what do to with all those cute little gift with purchase bags you get with your makeup? I put those bad boys to use and filled them with nail polish, tampons, hair rubber bands, and small travel accessories. Then I stacked them all pretty under our sink. 

Also, these little shower caddies hung on the inside of your cabinet under your sink are genius. It's such a great storage for all you bottles and lotions.


Needless to say I didn't have one glass of wine or even turn on the TV. But, you know what, it's Monday and I feel amazing, refreshed, and very organized!! And very very happy to have my family home! 




And this is just awesome :) 

Oh yeah, and I think I found my first new dress to replace all the old ones I got rid of. Plus, it's 40% off ;)
