Lady Lullaby Music

Prize: Hardcopy CD of Road to Dreamland: Unexpected Lullabies for All Ages. Unique jazz-flavored bedtime lullabies for everyone from babies to grownups!
"Jazz singer Jane Roman Pitt's oh-so-lovely album's subtitle, "Unexpected Lullabies for All Ages," is apt. Among the tender, off-the-beaten-path lullaby choices here, are the Thad Jones classic, "A Child is Born," Neil Young's "Barefoot Floors," and this exquisite little art song hinting of magic and fairyland: "The Sleep That Flits (on baby's eyes)" (text by Rabindranath Tagoe, music by John Alden Carpenter). Pitt's original "Dance Like the Wind," is a smooth fit; other soothing, well-chosen tracks include "Over the Rainbow," "The Nearness of You," and "Summertime." The jazz arrangements and instrumentation here are A+, and the singer herself, who styles the songs with lilting vibrato and a soft vocal caress, is chief among the album's unexpected treats."

Skirt (old) almost identical here
Shoes (old) similar here and here

Braids have been my go-to lately because they are super fast and easy and they give my hair a break from the heat. I also need a trim SO bad, so they kind of hide that fact as well. I know it's terrible but I am the worst about making time to trim my hair. :/ I'm sure I'll get around to it though. ;) We have been having so much fun lately enjoying this warm weather. I finally got a double stroller, so we have been taking it on lots of walks. We also got Rose a little pool and she had so much fun swimming in it and playing with her toys. :) Summer really is the best! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Top (Under $30 with 5 colors to choose from)
Shoes (50% off!)
Aviators (Less than $8)

Am I the only one that is in shock that we 2/3 of the way through June?! I feel like with having two kids time just flies by because I am always busy with them. I wouldn't have it any other way of course, but I would love it if time could just slow down a tiny bit. I try really hard to enjoy my kiddos each day, but I know somedays I worry more about getting stuff done then really enjoying each moment with them. My goal for this week is to really enjoy them and not worry so much about the other stuff. :)

Why I Love Eyelash Extensions

Thursday, June 16, 2016

I know a lot of people who are on the fence about whether or not they should get eyelash extensions, and if you ask me the answer is YES! I have had them off and on for the past 4 years and they are seriously the best things ever. Because I think they are so amazing, I am dedicating a post to tell you guys exactly why I love them so much. :) 

They shorten my makeup routine
I feel like there is never enough time in the day, so anything that I can do to shorten my makeup routine is a win in my book. Eyelash extensions shorten my makeup routine a ton because I don't have to do anything with my upper eyelashes except for take two seconds to comb them with my eyelash brush. 

I feel like I can go out without makeup and still look good
As a mom of two kids (wow that is still weird to say!), I definitely end up going some places without any makeup on. But I usually feel pretty "frumpy" when I do, expect for when I have eyelash extensions. They are just enough to give me a fresh face that looks like I but on a little bit of eye makeup. They are also perfect for the gym because I am not someone who will do a full face of makeup before I go for obvious reasons. 

They don't make my lashes fall out
I have had a lot of people ask me if I have had a problem with my lashes following out from having eyelash extensions. The answer is no. The only time that my eyelashes suffered was when I was getting rid of my eyelash extensions after my wedding and I was in a hurry to get them off, so I pulled a lot of them out along with my real lashes. If I had just let them come out naturally this wouldn't have been a problem. My tip is to just leave them alone. Brush them to get them straight, but then leave them be. Sometimes the very tips of my lashes are a little bit thinner than normal when I get my extensions off, but they are back to normal in a couple of weeks, so to me it's nothing. :) 

They are easy to take care of
I have kind of already made this point, but they really are SO easy to care for. All you have to do is 1. brush them a couple of times a day,  2. get them filled every 3-4 weeks and 4. leave them alone. It really couldn't be more simple. I love that I don't have to ever worry about removing mascara from my upper eyelashes or worry about having my mascara smear. 

So like I said, if you are considering getting them, do it! You won't regret it. I have two amazing girls that do my lashes in both Vernal and Provo. If you would like their info just let me know. :)

Summer Sunday

Monday, June 13, 2016


Top (sold out) similar
Wedges (old) similar (less than $15!)

It was such a nice day on Sunday and it made my heart happy to think that summer weather is finally here. I have so many fun outdoor activities that I want to do with Rosalie and I can't wait! I love how excited she gets about everything because it makes me excited too. On Sunday it was just me and Riley at church because the rest of my poor family was sick. They have had an awful flu all week and it just won't go away. Here's to hoping that they get better and that Riley and I don't get it. I wore this skirt that I got last summer that is still one of my all time favorites. :)

 Have a great week!
