Clothing? No Thanks

   Is it just me or is it extremely hot right now? The bathtub is going to start taking the #1 spot on my daily to do list. Fill tub with cool water, put on bathing suit, grab a margarita, and relax. That's how hot I am! I don't swim in public really grosses me out thinking of how many little children have peed in it with a smile on their face. Friday I may need to hit up the beach, and definitely once or twice next week. 

   With temperatures continuing to rise, along with the humidity level, I've come to find that I want to wear as little amount of clothes as possible. Lately that means a dress, a loose maxi skirt and tank, or a skirt and tank, and I refuse any type of denim until further notice. Don't get me wrong, I love summer time, I just wish my Italian A/C would work a little better. We have 1 wall unit that's supposed to cool the entire house...never gonna happen. 

   Since I'm pretty sure most of America is also having a heat wave of some sort, I've searched for cute summery dresses that are affordable. 

Summer Time Comfort

   Bright colors, playful patterns, and most importantly a dress that doesn't cling to the body (who wants sweat stains? ugh). Today's lesson, the 3 C' this flammable weather stay comfy, cool, and cute.


  1. haha yes i can't believe how hot it is getting in some parts! i used to live on the east coast and they are getting 100+ weather and now i can't imagine that because it will be like 85 and it will feel hot! i love these dressed the floral with the little cut outs is probably my fave, stay cool!


    1. I'm beginning to wonder when it's going to start cooling down, and August isn't even here yet!

  2. The humidity here is what If it's really 85 then it feels like it's 100 degrees. So I have been wearing dresses and stuff like that majority of the time. If only I could stay at the beach every single day until it starts to cool down. Hahah

  3. very nice items!!

  4. WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THE BATHTUB THING?? I've been dying. Thinking about buying a baby pool and hoping that my landlord won't kill me for ruining the grass. I love the colors, I have been oddly drawn to brights recently...I'll have to update my closet with a few pieces. Cheers to another 90 degree day! *clinks margarita glass*

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...

1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.

Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...

It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…
