Red Wagon

We had such a great weekend. We purchased a red wagon for Evan and he loved it. His smiles, screams, and laughs were priceless. Family time is amazing. Thanks to H&M I have been obsessed with online shopping. I love their best basics. They are so comfortable. Perfect for my family weekends.

End of Summer Sale

The Oxford Trunk is one of my favorite shops. They are having an end of summer sale, and are offering an additional 30% off sale items. Go grab something before it's all gone! I can't wait to see their Fall collection. Hooray for Fall, and happy shopping! 


Sequin Love

I have never been a huge fan of sequin clothing. I normally wear sequins during the holidays, but lately I have been obsessed. I am currently in love with every single item pictured below. I feel like these pieces can be worn for any occasion. These rad items are all from my favorite shops, and are on my wishlist. How do you feel about sequins?

Black and Gold

I love wearing all black. I can wear this color all year, and it never gets old. Black and gold are such a  chic combination. How cute is Evan? His chubby cheeks are the cutest. Evan and I like to start of our week casual and comfy.

Toybox Sandal

I love today's outfit. My sandals complete this look. I was unsure whether I wanted to keep them because I wasn't sure how they would look on me. Once I put on my outfit and received multiple compliments I knew I had to keep them. I am obsessed with them so be prepared to see them in my upcoming posts. Hope you are having an eventful weekend.

Getting Ready For Back 2 School

This week on my blog we have my niece Rachel. She is getting ready to go back to school, and she picked out two affordable outfits. Both outfit are casual and cute, perfect for a 10 year old. Rachel's favorite subject is math, and her favorite sport is soccer. She loves to shop at target. Her favorite brand is Gap, Cherokee, and Total Girl. She loves to play the violin or spend time with her family on her free time. 
Her favorite season is Fall. She loves the color purple. She enjoys to eat orange chicken and for dessert sour patch kids.

The Hunger Games is her favorite movie. If she could have a super power she would want to tell the future, because she would want to warn her family if anything bad happened to protect them.

I am in love with this shirt. I am so glad I purchased it for Evan. I have styled it with previous outfits, because we love it that much. Denim and Camo look so good together. How cute is this stud muffin? I am so obsessed with my little guy. Dressing him is so much fun! Enjoy your weekend! Thank you for stopping by!

My emails get me in trouble. I always open the wrong email that makes me spend my money. I came across these gorgeous boots. I have been wanting these boots for the longest. I think they are perfect for fall. Should I do it? I would get an additional 20% off! They come out to be $27.99. Such a good deal right??!! HELP!!! 


Our July Favorites

1. Sit to Stand Learning Walker: We are loving this toy. It entertains Evan for such a long time. He loves the music and noises it makes. It's such a great price too. This is one toy that I know Evan will like for a long time. 
2. Gerber Graduates Lil' Crunchies: Evan is obsessed with these. He tries to shove more than one in his mouth. I have to have these in my diaper bag. If Evan starts getting fussy I give him one and he's one happy baby. 
3. Didi Pop-Everyday Adventures: If you haven't heard of Didi Pop you must check her music out on YouTube. Evan is hooked on her music. I think I know every song in this album. We listen to it in  the car or watch her videos through out the day. Evan's favorite song is The Cool ABC Song! 
4. Sally Hansen Airbrush Leg Makeup: This product is amazing! I can't stress enough how much I love this. It leaves my legs looking flawless. If you have tried this product you know what I mean! 
5. Essie Nail Polish-Marshmallow: I've had this color on my nails all summer long, more like all year long. I carry this baby in my purse. The color is so rich and it goes on so smooth. I love it! 
6. Sigma Beauty Eye Shadow Base: Texas heat is killer! If you live in Texas you better have a good primer. I've always used Urban Decay, but once I tried this one out, I don't know if I'll ever use any other eye shadow base. It's pretty awesome!
7. Josie Maran Argan Oil: This stuff is magic in a bottle. It leaves my hair so soft and looking extra healthy. I received the to go bottle as a gift, but once that's gone I'll defiantly purchase the bigger bottle. 

Happy Birthday to My Best Friend

My boyfriend always asks why I never write or post pictures of him on my blog. haha Today is his birthday and I am creating a whole post just about him. What better way to show him that I do write about him on here. Haha I am in love with this man. He is amazing. Thanks to him, I've been the happiest I've ever been these past few years. He is such a wonderful dad. He's the kind of guy that would do anything for his family, and that makes me feel like the luckiest girl in this planet! Unfortunately he's out of town, but once he comes home we are celebrating. Happy Happy Birthday my love! Evan and I are so lucky to have you. Muakkk!
