It was Fun day yesterday with my grandson-Henry!! Actually its been fun day for the past several days while my daughter-Justine and son in law-Phil were on vacation. We had a lot of fun with him, he loves shopping. Which is so cute. My husband doesn't of course.  My daughter is training him right ;)  He is 2 1/2, what a great age.
Back to my #ootd!! The shorts are from JCrew outlet, they have an elastic waist nice for over eating in.. Lol
I have a few of this type from last year, very comfy and can be worn dressy or casual. The shoes-what can I say. you have seen these in several of my posts. Absolutely love them!!! The black shirt is from Nordstorm Rack it's sold out on line. I linked a similar one above. If you want to go to your Nordstrom Rack and see if you can find it. The brand is RO & DE. :)

Casual Day

                           Free People Top // Converse No-Tie Sneakers(similar)

I have these Converse in several colors-I think I'm addicted!!! Every time I see them in a different color I have to get them ;) I alway find them at Nordstrom Rack. I tried to get the exact link for you, but they don't carry them on line. GO grab them at your Nordstrom Rack ($39.95).  
I think Free People tops are the most comfortable for casual days around the house. They are lose and soft which is a plus when running errands, or getting comfy with a good book and a glass of wine..

Fabulous Mascara

These are my absolute favorite mascara's!!! I wear both everyday. I put one coat of "They're Real" on first and then "Roller Lash" on second. I usually do this step twice for everyday. If I have a special date ;) I will do it 3 times..
I have been using the "gimme brow" gel and like it-it really colors and fills in your brows. It comes in dark and light color. I use the light one. My hair is a light brown color, so the light color works for me!!

Spring Dresses

                                 Mint Green/White Bracelet // Black Dress

                                             Rebecca Minkoff Purse // Steve Madden Shoes

We were in Las Vegas and Sonoma, CA last week!  Here are some of the #ootd I wore. The weather is both place were about the same- Warm and Sunny!! Of course Sonoma was a more relax time, Vegas is a busy busy town. FYI; the blue off the shoulder dress and the Kate Spade hot pink belt was from TJMaxx, so that is going to be a hit or miss if you must have.:) I also have to tell you the Black jumpsuit from Shopavabelle was awesome purchase. I was a little unsure when I ordered it. But when it came I could not be happier. It fit perfect! 
Thanks again for stopping by :)

MY Favorites

We are going on vacation tomorrow. When I started packing I got to thinking of all my favorites. I included all the links below. Most of the items come in different colors. They are all still in stock too..I have been particle to pinks and yellows. ALL the shoes I bought this season were tan. lol  It got really hard on what to take and what to leave behind. My husband hates when I over pack!!! I'm thinking 2 suitcases for a week is so not over packing.. ;) But this time I could not help it we are going from LasVegas to Napa Valley, Ca. 
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you enjoy my favorites too!!!

Powder Room Almost Done

FINALLY, painted the powder room. Sorry for leaving you hanging. It has taken me a month or longer to get this done.I hate when I started a project and things keep coming up. I felt like forever before I got to paint this room.
 I decided to go with Sherwin Williams SW 7031 Mega Greige Matte finish (it's between flat and satin), Flat white ceiling paint and Glossy White trim paint. I love how bright it makes the room. If you saw my before posts my bathroom had a black floral wallpaper and before that it was a wine red. Which you get to see both in those pics. SO going light is a big change for me. I have been lightening up the whole house. I still have to do the mirror, vanity and the counter top and sink.
 Check back for the finish project in a few weeks !!

Spring Trend with Alex and Ani

                                                                 ALEX and ANI

LOOK at Alex and Ani's new Spring bracelets!!! Loving how they are mixing all the colors and beads,with the silver and gold tone bracelets. I started collecting these a few years ago for myself and daughters. My daughter Vanessa's first one was Delta Gamma for her Sorority, mine was Tree of Life, and daughter Justine's was the Feather. (she loves feathers). The one's we buy all have some meaning that fits us. We just added a few beaded one's this past holiday season. If you notice in my pictures I mix the gold and silver tones some times too. I love giving these as gifts too!!! Especially if know the person really well.
                       Have fun shopping ;)

                                                  FREE Bauble Bar with $50 purchase

Sunday, April 3, 2016


Lately, I've been trying out different foundations. There have been a few hits... and also a few misses. I'll share only my favorites with you... I've been using for the past month and I've really been loving. It's actually It Cosmetic CC full coverage cream! It provides more coverage than I'm used to, but it truly makes your skin look perfect (and covers up all my acne scars). My mom came to visit and asked about my face make up, so now she is using it too..  I switch between medium and tan, depending on whether or not I've been tanning. I always apply it with It Cosmetic brush #7 for even coverage. I also use Bye Bye anti aging under eye concealer. When applying the concealer I use the small side of brush #7. One more important thing! I always set the CC Cream with Bye Bye pores powder - it is an amazing setting powder. It's translucent so you don't have to worry about matching your skin color...I love that it soaks up all of the oil, and makes pores look minimal.  

Also, some days when I am not doing much and don't need full coverage. I tried and REALLY like Bye Bye tinted moisturizer . I use it with the same brush (#7). All of these products  REALLY WORK. I was a true Mac Cosmetic girl for years and decided I need something new, and are very happy!!!

Casual Saturday

                                             Sneakers: Similiar //  Grey Tank // Old Navy jeans

I've got a lot of question about my converse sneakers this week. I was stop a few times while running errands too. I have attached the link to a similar pair. I bought these at Nordstorm Rack a few weeks ago, they didn't have many left, and were not sold online. So go check your Rack and hopefully you can find them. My tank is a grey TopShop loose fitting and my cardigan was purchased in TJmaxx.
Thanks for always checking my site for your updated links!!! Have a great Weekend!!
