As a mom and a fashion lover, finding a style that is appropriate put still pushing the line is sometimes difficult.

Personally I love the whole crop top idea for summer. It is totally in right now and a super fun look, but as a mother and a very, very ripe 30 year old, some styles are just better left for the younger fashionistas.

With that being said, this is how I feel comfortable wearing a crop top. With higher waisted pants you are able to still get the feel of the crop top style with out being completely exposed.

As always, this is MY personal style and a blog that captures just that. Not everyone will like it or even agree with it, but that is the beauty of style and fashion and what makes us all unique. I hope I can inspire someone to wear what they want and make it work. Embrace it and be YOU!

Kimono-Love

SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC

I know I’m not the only one absolutely loving all of the floral kimono action going on in every store I shop at,….right??!!!

This one caught my eye because of the navy and light pastel colors as well as the super cute small puff edging. I think it adds a fun touch, plus it’s under $20!

One benefit of living in the DFW area is there are always lots of things to do. We have been traveling a lot, but when we are here for a weekend, we’ve definitely been taking advantage of the fun things to do.

Horse races, zoo, choo choo trains, and a bunch more. Here are some pics I wanted to catch up on!

Let’s Be Real

Don’t get me wrong….most days I love to open my closet and find something new to wear. It’s fun wearing things in different ways and taking something simple and making it great. But let’s be real…..some days I just feel like walking into my closet and grabbing the first thing I see.

That’s exactly what I felt this morning….so, here it is…..t-shirts and flip flops.  :/

Chocolate Chip Cookie Frosted Brownies

SONY DSC

I love brownies and I love chocolate chip cookies (and dough), and sometimes….I just can’t decide. So, why not just have them both!!! YUM!

The brownie recipe is a little bit drier than I like, so if you have a recipe you love, I’d suggest using it instead. But this frosting…..it’s a keeper. I can see this being great on a cupcake, as a filling in a cake or cupcake or even in a bowl with a spoon 🙂

(*** hint,…if your brownies are drier than you want…pop them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds**)

Here is the recipe I used!

Drug Store Goodies

SONY DSC

 

Ok girls….CVS got me again!! Not really, but they keep sending me coupons and extra buck deals and $5 off of $15, so its just too good of deals not to scoop up!

I got all of this for $21 plus got $5 extra bucks back!!! (excluding the nail polish which I scooped up at Drug Emporium)

1. L.A. Colors Color Craze Gel Extreme Shine Polish in Posh, Damsel, & Stunner

I absolutely love these nail polishes. I picked up some to try a couple months ago and was so impressed I made it a point to go to the only store I know of that sells them when I was back in Amarillo for Easter. Super affordable, great summer colors and great product!

2. NYC Waterproof Eyeshadow in 650 East River Romance, & HD Automatic Eyeliner in Navy Blue & Turquoise

3. NYC BB Radiance Perfecting Powder in 001 Naturally Beige

I heard great things about this and was excited to try it. This powder has a great texture and gives a nice glowy…but not too glowy look to your skin. It only comes in 2 shades and the lightest is still a bit too dark for me. I will definitely get more use out of it this summer, but for now I’m pairing it the lightest foundation I have.

4. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 001 Transparent

An oldie, but a goodie!

5. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Fair

I am really loving this for concealing and highlighting. I feel like the coverage is great and the color is just right for my skin! So I had to get a backup!

6. Maybelline Age Rewind in Brightner/Illuminator

I’ve used this before and remember liking it ok. It is definitely a very pink-ish color to brighten, so beware.

7. Milani Matte Lipsticks in Matte Orchid, Matte Blissful, Matte Innocence & Matte Naked(pictured below in order)

Finally found them!!!

April 2nd-Autism Awareness-We Wear Blue!!!

SONY DSC SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC

For those of you who do not know, April is Autism Awareness Month.  Today specifically, April 2nd, we are to wear blue in support and to spread awareness about Autism.  I know many people, friends, family and acquaintances, that are blessed with children with autism.

Our family has been blessed with Jack, my cousin. He is a joy and is thankfully a very happy little boy,….growing young man. I am so proud of his parents, who love him so dearly and provide such excellent care and therapy for him. But most of all, I am selfishly thankful for his blessing in our family. He, unknowingly, has taught us all so much.  Patience, tender love, acceptance, consideration for others, and compassion.  I feel honored that Jesus would bless our family with the gift of Jack.

Today WE wear blue!
