Currently Loving

Happy Fri-YAY! Who doesn't love Friday, especially one that falls just a few days before Christmas?! The kids are officially out of school for Winter Break and today is my husband's last day of work until after the New Year. Now just a few days stand between us and Disney! I can't believe it's finally here! You can follow all of our magical fun on Instagram stories so be sure you are following along over there. 

Today, I am rounding up what I am currently loving and this is officially my last blog post of 2017! I'll be back after our trip to share some 2017 highlights and details about Disney!

1. Black Tote | I already own a similar tote by this brand and it's my absolute favorite bag! I was going to share it with y'all again but it's completely sold out everywhere. You just can't go wrong with a black tote bag! I carry mine every single day!


2. Chunky Knit Scarf | Now that it's officially winter, I am on the hunt for cozy scarves to help me stay warm. I love this oversized chunky knit scarf. It looks so soft!


3. Snap Popover | I have been seeing this popover all over Instagram and it's finally back in stock. It comes in four color combinations but of course this pink and cream combo is my absolute favorite!


4. Sequin Tee | Nothing says Happy New Year like sequins! But if you're like me you won't need anything fancy to ring in the new year. I haven't been to a get dressed up kind of party since before my kiddos were born. This sequin tee is perfectly festive and would pair perfectly with jeans for hanging out with the family!


5. Knit Cape | Like I mentioned above, I am stocking up on cozy pieces for the winter weather. I love capes for layering so this one immediately caught my eye! It comes in two great colors.


6. Fleece Pullover | I can't get enough fleece pullovers right now! I already own two and I think I need to add this pretty pink one to my collection. It looks so comfortable!


7. Earrings | I love hoops, especially ones that dangle like these! They are so feminine and dainty plus they are budget friendly at under $15!


8. Faux Fur Slippers | I own and absolutely love these blush pink faux fur slippers. I bought them in a size large, which the tags says fits a 9-10. I wear an 8.5 in almost all shoes and these slippers fit me perfectly. I have worn them around the house every day since I bought them!


Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Weekend Style

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a wonderful week! The days before Christmas can be so incredibly busy and super stressful but I encourage you to take the time to just be still and enjoy it. Take 10 minutes to just sit by your tree with a cup of coffee. Read to your children about the true reason for the season. Dance to Christmas music in your pajamas. Take in all of the simple moments because those are the ones you will always remember.

Today, I'm sharing my weekend style but really it's just my real style. If I don't have to dress up then I just want to be as comfortable as possible! Who else is with me?! Give me comfy, cozy, casual all day, every day. As much as I love the comfortable life, I still like to feel put together. 

This off the shoulder sweatshirt makes a casual piece a little fancier. Plus these faux leather leggings are definitely a big step up from my pajama pants! I also always throw on some jewels to dress up my look. You can definitely be comfortable and put together at the same time (basically what every busy mom wants), it just takes a little bit of strategy. If you are wearing an oversized top pair it with comfortable skinny jeans or leggings to balance out the look. And my biggest trick for feeling comfortable and put together is to wear what you feel confident in! I don't go by the silly letter size that's on the tag, I go by the fit and how I feel in it! When you are comfortable in your clothes, you will feel so much more confident. I know I always do!

Instagram Roundup

Hey y'all! I'm officially on Christmas break and my girls will be out tomorrow afternoon. I'm going to be spending the whole day preparing for our trip. Getting ready for Christmas and packing for Disney has been a little more tricky than I anticipated. Thankfully, we have a spare bedroom that I have been keeping locked! So many beans would be spilled if they went into that room. Packing your kids stuff up without them noticing is hard, lol! But it's all going to be so worth it. Bring on vacation and the most magical place on earth! I cannot wait. 

 Today, I'm rounding up photos from the past week on Instagram. I have been living in all of the neutrals and pink, as usual!

Hair and Beauty Bag

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all having a great start to your week! Today, I wanted to share what's currently on rotation in my hair and beauty bag. Almost all of my beauty picks are super budget friendly and available at your local drug store or Target. I love beauty on a budget!

Powder Foundation | I have been using this powder for over a year and I still love it. I discovered it from an Influenster box and have continued to purchase it. I use a layer of it on top of my BB Cream and it leaves my skin looking flawless. Such a great product and a great price!

Mascara | I reviewed this mascara at the beginning of the summer and it's the only one I use now. Products that you go have to change out often (like mascara), I don't like to spend a ton of money on so I am so excited that I love this affordable option. I do feel like I have to replace this mascara more often than the similar Too Faced product but it's a fraction of the price so I don't mind. Read more of my review here.

BB Cream | I have also reviewed this BB Cream before in this post and I am still absolutely loving it! It evens out my skin tone and makes my sun spots magically disappear. Magic in a tube and it's under $10. For fall and winter, I go a shade lighter. I recently switched over to the shade fair and remember, a little goes a long way with this product!

Micellar Water | I recently switched to this product after using makeup remover wipes for years. I read so many good reviews about it so I decided to give it a try. Now I'm hooked! It's easily removes all of your makeup, even waterproof mascara in a few swipes. I love it!




Eyeliner | I have been using this eyeliner literally for over ten years. When I was in college, I started experimenting with eyeliner and I have been using the same one ever since. I usually wear the black onyx color. Also another great beauty product that's budget friendly.

Nail Color | I bought a bottle of this polish randomly and now it's my go-to! Two coats (with one clear top coat) lasts me for over a week! It's a great affordable, gel polish.

Eyebrow Pencil | I have just recently started using an eyebrow pencil so I bought several different ones to try out. This one is by far my favorite! The pencil is angled so it applies easily plus it comes with a blending brush to get the perfect look. I use the soft brown shade.

Lip Exfoliator | This is another random beauty buy because I had never used any kind of lip exfoliator before but I was intrigued by the idea. I mean, who doesn't want smoother lips!? I love the sweet cheery flavor and it definitely leaves your lips so soft!

Highlighter | I love giving drugstore finds a try before splurging. I am loving this highlighter after using it for over a month. I use it on my brow bone, eye lids, cheeks, nose, and chin.

Eye Shadow | I don't splurge on many items, especially ones that I go through quickly or need to replace often. However, I do splurge on eye shadow palettes because they seem to last forever. This is my all time favorite palette and definitely worth splurging on!




Cream Lip Stain | I discovered this product from a sample that Sephora sent me in the mail. I've worn it several times in my Instagram stories and I always get asked what color I'm wearing. The color is called Pink Tea and it looks fairly brown in the container but the color when it's applied is the prettiest neutral. It also lasts all day! 




Shampoo | This shampoo is definitely a big splurge for me. I typically would never spend nearly $30 on a shampoo but I needed a better product for my color treated hair. Many people recommended this product so I picked up a sample size bottle at Ulta to give it a try. It's honestly worth the price tag! I have been able to go 2-3 between washes now when I only could only go a day before. My hair looks and feels so much healthier!




Hair Brush | I have a super sensitive scalp so this is the only hair brush I can use plus it's so great for little girl hair. Definitely a must have!




Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day, y'all!
