We have a cruise planned for later this year and I cannot wait! I have been tagging and saving things that I want to buy so I can have a lot of outfits photographed while we are cruising the open seas. E doesn't know it yet but he is working on this trip. LOL.Read More
Finally! I was able to get around to using the Tarte Cosmetics: Be a Mermaid and Make Waves Palette and I am so, so in love. This buy far is one of my favorite palettes, I absolutely love when a palette will come with matte shades along with some shimmer. I am not an avid user of shimmer shades but I am slowly introducing them into my makeup routine and while I don't love them for certain looks, I do love playing with them.Read More

This is so far out of my comfort zone I am still considering not posting this.
If you follow me you know that I am not great with make-up I mean I can't even do a good smokey eye. But I enjoy the palettes that I have been purchasing and the alone time in my beauty room.
Needless to say, when J went down for his nap today I was trying to go for a pineapple look. I had these earrings that were coming in and with summer right around the corner I knew it would be absolutely perfect.
Well somewhere things went slightly left and right and I ended up with this gorgeousness. I threw on a kimono I had hanging in my extra closet and called it a day.
It reminded me of a mermaid so that is what I am running with.
I have a few make up looks coming to you loves in the next couple of weeks and I am so excited.
I have finally been able to get my thoughts and life in order, since I started using oils and if you haven't read that post you can here.
I would absolutely love to know your thoughts on this look!
So I have to admit, I am an introvert by nature I don't do well in social situations. I guess that is why this blogging thing is a much better avenue for me.
It also doesn't help that while I have been pregnant I don't want to stick my belly into other peoples conversations. So when I saw the invite for the Mostess Box launch party I wasn't too sure I wanted to go but I knew that I had to go support my friend Stacy.
I am so glad that my introverted self didn't win this battle because it was purely amazing. All the desserts, that I did my best to stay away from and all the beautiful set ups using the 4 different Mostess Box were so photo/blog worthy.
You can find the latest box here and see what you missed out on previous boxes. There are 4 boxes a year with certain items to help you be the perfect host.
The founder Lindsey Rose King came up with the idea after being the host for an engagement party for a friend. She is very aware of all the trouble we go through to host the perfect party with all the cute details that have your friends wondering where did you get it. And now you can just tell them Mostess Box.
The great thing is that with the holidays coming up right around the corner Mostess Box takes all the hassle out of it for you. You can use the box to host your own party or give it as a gift to friends so they can host you! It is a total win, win.
If you are looking for more tips on hosting your own party, definitely check out the Mostess Box blog it has tons of tips/tricks!
The amazing Wink by Erica made these delicious macaroons and I am so glad that I will be using her for the baby shower next month. Don't worry they taste as good as they look!
And I walked away with my first ever swag bag! It included the most amazing cotton candy from Toast from the Host! If you have an event coming up and want to do something different than the norm, I would totally look her up.
Oh and I figured I owed you guys a bump update, it is definitely getting bigger and fitting into clothes is getting tougher but I am very excited to now be in my third trimester!
The rain in Houston seems to be on a schedule of it's own, but it is almost Memorial Weekend and I couldn't be more excited. I literally want to stay in bed and maybe make it to the beach at least once but if not bed sounds amazing! So ready for some much needed time away from this Tan Cubicle.
Anyways, today I put together some much needed summer lovin' post, if the sun is out, buns are out.
I am so ready for a little R&R it isn't even funny. I hope you guys are already enjoying the pre-summer vibes that have already started. I just want everything bright summer colored and fun in my life right now, a beach chair, and a beach towel. Oh and a beach nap too.
Do you have any summer plans?
