Lace & Ruffles

February 20, 2017

Hey Everyone!!!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and if you get a long weekend...I hope you are still enjoying your long weekend! We had amazing weather here in the Chi!! Unfortunately, I was hit with the flu that my little guy had earlier in the week. I was stuck in bed but luckily my husband got to take E out and get lots of park and play time!!

Today I wanted to share with you this ADORABLE lace top. Let me tell you, I am obsessed with the cut of this top. Now, I am not into crop tops....I feel like that is not "mom" appropriate. This top has a slight crop feel but it is long enough to wear it covers everything and looks SO flattering with high-waisted jeans. 

This is a great top for spring and even into summer!! I can't wait to wear it over and over!

Thanks for visiting! XO

2nd Outfit: Top/Jeans/Shoes/Sunglasses


I am super excited for this weekend....not only because its the weekend but because its going to be 60 OUT!! My house has been plagued with flu all week and we are finally feeling better (although I am the only one without the flu so I am scared it will come to me and of course during the weekend YIKES)

I am super excited for a fun long weekend outside to get fresh air and maybe some workouts in! I also wanted to share some things I have my eye on...including a sale at Abercrombie. I know I have been like ONLY wearing Abercrombie...but it's because I've been literally only buying from Abercrombie hahaha They just have so many cute things. I actually just found out they have been closing down a lot of stores. It makes me sad! 

Also this sweatshirt is my perfect MOM sweatshirt! I've been wearing them non-stop! The pink is sold out but the stripes is still available. Honestly you can't go wrong with an oversized sweatshirt any day!!

Hope you all have a great weekend! XO

New From Pixi By Petra!

February 16, 2017

Hello Everyone!!
So today's post contains some amazing new products from Pixi By Petra which you can get at Target. I have been liking a lot of their products lately and they graciously sent me this ginormous box with all these amazing new collaboration products!!! I was shocked and excited and literally had to rip open the box. They didn't ask me to share or talk about this...but after swatching and playing around...I HAD TO SHARE!!! 

Pixi collaborated with It's Judy Time, Aspyn Novard, Maryam Maquillage, and Caroline Hirons. These group of ladies did an astonishing job! So I used the products in a chit-chatty GRWM/Reviews and then I have some swatches below!!

So It's Judy Time came out with an eyeshadow palette and a lip palette!! The first thing I dug into was the eyeshadow palette naturally. These shadows are more on the warm side of neutral which I think appeal to a large audience. The pigmentation and buttery softness on these shadows are ON point! They blend beautifully! They have a great array of matte and shimmer shades and a wide arrangemet of soft to deep to create an everyday to smokey look. 

The Lip palette is very nice! I do like the color range in the palette. Although I have never used a lip palette. I don't know HOW much I will personally use this since my job is not makeup artistry. If you watch this in the video you will see how I feel about the formula (all good things) but I have to say I love that I can kind of layer these and get a custom color!! To me this is unnecessary to own but a lot of fun to play around with!!

Aspyn Novard came out with 2 Highlighters and a Glowy Blush....THIS you need. The highlight in London Lustre is a soft pearl shade, Santorini Sunset is a soft golden shade, and Rome Rose is a rosey pink blush with gold shimmer. If there is anything from this collection you need...It's the highlighters! These 3 are buttery, soft, smooth, pigmented. They blend easily and you can build them to super intense or apply lightly and get a subtle glow. These are by far the best highlighters that I have tried from the drugstore!! Good Job Aspyn! :)

Maryam came out with these 2 face palettes: a Strobe & Sculpt and a Strobe & Bronze Palette! The formula is super smooth and pigmentation is very intense. Sometimes to me that can intimidate me especially with a contour shade. I did have a little trouble blending the contours and they were a little warm on me. The highlights and strobing powders are fantastic! They were a little chalkier than the individual highlights above but still great quality!

Lastly Caroline came out with this Double Cleanse skincare item. The skincare lover inside was really excited about this. One side is a solid cleansing oil (almost like a cleansing balm) and the other side is a cleansing cream! I haven't tried this yet actually though! I am super excited to and will keep you all updated!

Make sure to check out my video applying these products! If anything is a must, I would say grab the highlighters and the eyeshadow palette...because we could all use another highlight and eyeshadow palette in our lives (I know I know, I am an enabler!)

Thanks so much for visiting! XO

Kissable Lip Combos

February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!!!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite lip liner/lipstick (or liquid lipstick) combos!! A kissable lip is definitely necessary on a day like today!! Although not all of these are transfer proof, they do make your lips look pouty and kissable!!!!

Influenster sent me a couple of the new Bite Beauty lip liners along with their matching lipstick and I have to say.....they are completely amazing!!!

1. My favorite combo lately. It Cosmetics YLBB in Buff NudeMac Creme D' Nude. These are oldies to me but goodies!!! I pulled them out recently and have just been loving a good nude lip!! These are perfection and let me tell you that lip liner doesn't budge!!

2. This is one combo I received from Influenster and I ADORE this one! This is the Bite Beauty Lip liner in 020 and the matching Amuse Bouche lipstick in Honeycomb!! I LOVE this nude! Its has a hint of pink and a hint of brown making this super wearable. It feels absolutely amazing on the lips!!!

3. Another Bite Beauty Lip liner in 044 and Lipstick in Whiskey. Now I will say, this isn't my typical lip. Actually I tried this lip on and it doesn't suit me very well, but I KNOW (and have seen) many girls rocking this lip and it looks SO good on them!!! So if you have a thing for sexy vampy lips....Whiskey is necessary for your life ;)

4. Another perfect nude combo. MUFE Aqua Lip in 3C and Bareminerals Matte Liquid Lip in Wink. Wink to me is almost too nude to wear on its own but paired with this lip liner underneath...it is magic!! This lip liner can give the appearance of the poutiest, fullest lips ever! Who needs lip injections with you have this!?

5. For the mauvey girl, this one is for you. MAC Whirl lip liner is my all-time FAVE...I literally wear it with everything! I paired it with this liquid lipstick by Jouer in the shade Melon. It is a mauvey-nude (because nudes are my life) but this give a little more color to the lips. I think this one is the perfect date night for Valentine's Day

I hope you all enjoyed this kissable lip combo post!!! Thanks to Influenster for sending me such amazing products! XO

Easy On The Go Mom Must Haves

February 13, 2017

Sweater: Abercrombie & Fitch, Jeans; Old Navy (Similar), Shoes: Nike, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Sunglasses: Nordstrom

Hello Everyone!!!

Just an easy outfit today. I wanted to also share some tips for dressing on the go. Most days, I don't have much time to get ready. I like to have easy outfits that I can grab and go!....Its pretty much my whole wardrobe...or at least what is on rotation!

Most days, I like to wear jeans. Why? Because to me it makes me feel put together more than wearing leggings or sweatpants. When I wear leggings and sweatpants, sometimes I feel less productive for the day. When I throw on a pair of comfortable jeans that look and feel great on me, I feel way better and I become way more productive and have more energy!

I also love this lightweight sweater. It is the perfect throw on! Its slightly oversized in the arms so its very flattering on. Its not long but not super cropped and hits right at the hips. When you find a pullover top that feels good and fits right. It's a top I don't have to think about...I just throw it on and go!

I also have to say for ANY look on the go, sneaks are key!!! I suggest finding a great neutral that goes with everything!!! I absolutely love these pair from Nike! I also have a black pair and a gray New Balance pair linked HERE & HERE. They go with all my outfits and they are super comfortable! They make the outfit look sporty yet put together.

Another must have for on the go...The Crossbody! It is the perfect bag to stay hands free! I personally love Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bags because of the quality and the price! She makes so many classic styles! I love this mini mac that really goes with everything! I love the size of this so that I can fit my wallet, phone, sunglasses, and lipgloss. Its again...A must have!!

I hope you enjoy this post!! Thanks so much for visiting! XO
