Another matching moment

I can’t take credit for this photo shoot! It was a Mommy & Me event hosted by Kindhearted Kids (a woman owned company teaching kids to be kind and encouraging the message through their events). They setup the cutest backdrop and had an on-site photographer, Layland Photography. If you’re local to Columbus, I highly recommend checking out both/either businesses. Layland Photography is owned by Ashlie who is so great to work with – I was certain Olivia wouldn’t smile in pics, but these turned out so adorable! Ashlie also offers tips for taking photos and offers mood boards for outfit Inspo when you book with her!

This matching set might be my favorite mommy & me outfit to date. I love the style of this top – sweetheart neckline and peplum bodice – so flattering! I am wearing an XS & ordered a 2T for Olivia. I thought it was supposed to be a dress but it was pretty short on her so it turned into a shirt. She’s an average height for her age (2) so not sure if this just runs a little large for toddlers. Maybe size up – worst case, it’s a little large now and they grow into it! The color of this outfit is so soft and neutral. Will work across spring & summer. Looking forward to wearing this again for St Patrick’s Day next year!! Lastly, I paired it with these beautiful lavender lace up heels from Vince Camuto. I love the color of these and have been able to pair these with multiple outfits (also worn in my last post, Mom Love Rose in the Park). The suede material is so comfortable and can be worn for several hours with no issues. Ordered my true size.

Moms Love Rosé in the Park

This is the first Mother’s Day since I’ve been a mama where we had beautiful weather!! We live in Ohio where April showers bring more May showers. It actually rained Saturday and stayed overcast. We got lucky on Sunday!

Last year, we did breakfast in bed and I thought that might be a new tradition. Nearby, we had a new market that opened with a few food vendors, a bar, speak easy, and an event center all in one building! The grand opened was last weekend (we didn’t go because, I’m not gonna lie, prefer being out in public when there aren’t big crowds. We showed up exactly at 11AM when it opened. Ordered some food and waited with mimosas on the outdoor patio. We were back at home in time for Olivia’s nap and that’s when I got our picnic basket ready: Rosé, black truffle guyere cheese, pepperoni wrapped white cheddar, wheat crackers, and dried fruit. I know these aren’t perfect pairings to rose, but it’s all about Mom and what she wants.

Truthfully, I’ve never been on a picnic. So my vision for a picnic experience might be shaped by images I’ve seen going viral, setups on TV, and on advertisements. I pictured romantic, florals, gingham, feminine…. so this dress was perfect for my vision. The right about of girly, ruffles, Peter Pan collars, pastels… everything but the gingham print (didn’t want to clash with the blanket). This dress is more of a splurge, but if you’re lucky enough to find it on a resell website, they are more affordable! I’m in between an XS/S and I’m wearing a small. The length is not too short, even with heels! It is a little looser up top and the tie string doesn’t do much to adjust that. The buttons are functional and there’s also a silver zip closure on the side.

Speaking of heels.. while it did look silly to chase my toddler around the park in heels and a dress…. how good is this combo? These suede lace up heels match the pastel florals perfectly and complete this outfit with a nice pop of color. This is my fourth time wearing these shoes and they’re extremely comfortable! I think they fit TTS.

I was able to link a very similar, if not the same picnic basket on my LTK page. This was a bridal shower gift years ago and I’ve been dying to use it! We’ve packed it on our beach vacations every year, but have only used it to carry wine to and from the beach at sunset and use the plastic cups, lol. It is a whole table setting for two – plates, cups, napkins, cutlery, s&p shakers, plus the washable blanket. Good amount of space inside too. Makes a great bridal shower, wedding, anniversary, birthday, or Mother’s Day gift!

Highly recommend a picnic in the park this Spring! It was really relaxing to sit around drinking rose in the sun. Let me know how in the comments how you celebrated and what your ideas are for Father’s Day, too! xoxo

Have Your Cake & Eat it TWO

Over a month late, but finally publishing this post all about Olivia’s 2nd Birthday celebration 💗. I had so much fun thinking of a theme! There are so many adorable party ideas with a pun for “two”. If Olivia got to pick, I’m sure she would have chosen a “TWO infinity and beyond party” because Toy Story and Buzz are her favorite things… But when I saw this inspo on Pinterest, I couldn’t unsee this as the theme! We bought her a kitchen set for Christmas so seeing this “baking” theme seemed perfect to incorporate her kitchen set as the main toy for all of the kids to play with. When you ask Olivia about a birthday party, her answer is, “I get cake! And a hat” *touches the top of her head* it’s so funny! I knew I wanted to get party hats for her birthday – except they ended up not being a hit, LOL! I was the only one to wear one. Keeping them all for another time.

The cake & cupcakes were all made by Sugar & Swirl – one of my friends I used to work with at a local meal prepping company started her own baking business on the side. She is AMAZING! She made the cake plus 4 different flavors of cupcakes and everyone complimented each one! The Smore’s were definitely the favorite! I ordered circus animal cookie mini cupcakes for the kids (so nostalgic), cinnamon roll cupcakes (topped with an actual mini cinnamon roll), and I ordered vegan chocolate covered strawberry for anyone with that preference.

The cupcake wrappers, party hats, and cupcake toppers were all purchased from the cutest Etsy shop – Pretty Plain Paper! She has so many different themes/designs to choose from – anything from the invitations to party decor! Birthdays, holidays, etc. I will definitely be shopping from her again. It was convenient to purchase and have the designs emailed to me immediately! Then I sent to my local Staples and cut out, taped/stapled as needed. It didn’t take that long to put everything together! Taped a toothpick to the cupcake toppers, cut out the wrappers and taped those on the day of the party to ensure they fit the cupcakes. For the party hats, I cut out, taped together, and then glued a little pom pom on top. I also purchased elastic string and attached with tape. It all held together pretty well! Just wish Olivia actually wore her hat… she was all excited to see them but always refused to wear a hat, lol!

All links are at the bottom of the post. What have been some of your favorite birthday party themes?! Let me know in the comments!

2022 Sephora Spring Savings Event

IT’S HEREEEE!! The Spring Savings Event at Sephora were you can save 10, 15, or 20 percent off your purchase! This is a great time to stock up on your favorite items, try something new, or SPLURGE!!! I can’t WAIT to share what I purchased from the sale. I took advantage and bought a big ticket item I’ve been wanting for a long time. Also ordered a few new things to try and will report back!

I’m getting a chemical peel this Thursday that won’t be healed for a week so even though my products are arriving this weekend, I won’t get to enjoy them until my skin heels. the anticipation…. The below graphic outlines the details of the Spring Savings event. Keep scrolling to read and learn more about my top recommendations. Happy Shopping 🙂

1. Makeup Eraser 2. Prime and Prep Detangler 3. Dry Shampoo 4. All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray 5. St Tropez Self Tanning 6. Laneige Lavender Sleep Mask 7. Lamcome lash primer and mascara set 8. Laura Mercier setting powder 9. Dr Dennis Gross Microderm pads 10. Gucci foundation 11. Nars lipgloss 12. St Tropez Face Tanning Mist 13. Olaplex shampoo

Makeup Eraser – These are a great way to remove your makeup at night. I used to use a makeup wipe and then wash my face but I will still leaving a lot of dirty makeup on my towel. These helps scrub your face and you feel really clean. Plus washable so use once, get all of your makeup off, throw in the dirty laundry. It’s a set so should last you all week!

Drybar Prime and Prep Detangler – This stuff smells so good! I re-ordered during the sale but think I chose the other scent to try. I know I recommend the pink bottle though. I spray it on wet hair and comb through. It’s also a heat protectant. My hair feels so soft using this product.

Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo – THE. BEST. EVER. EVER. Smells clean and makes my hair clean. I have dark hair and it does come out in a white powder but shake through your hair and it disappears. Buy the BIG CAN!

All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray – Ever wish there was a hairspray for your makeup? This. Is. IT! I’ve used for years and love how my makeup looks at the end of the day. I also ordered their New setting spray with Vitamin C as part of the Sephora sale.

St Tropez Self Tanner – With a baby, I didn’t have a lot of time for myself out in the sun. I’m balancing nap times, cooking, cleaning, etc so finding a good self tanner is key to feeling my best in the summer. I love the express one hour tanner by St Tropez, too. This gives you the prettiest bronze color and is hydrating, too!

Laneige Lavender Sleep Mask – I bought this with last year’s sale and it’s lasted me a full year! The directions say to use 2-3 times a week. You don’t need a lot and it smells sooo good (it’s lavender and very relaxing). When I wake up in the mornings, my skin is too plump and hydrated. There’s a few different scents – check it out.

Lancome lash primer and mascara set – The best primer and mascara ever ever – run, don’t walk to this set!

Laura Mercier setting powder – I truly love anything Laura Mercier. I use this setting powder after applying my foundation and concealer. It prevents creasing and and oil. Gives skin a beautiful finish!

Dr Dennis Gross Microderm pads – This is a great splurge item in the sale. I didn’t stock up this time because I’ve been getting chemical peels, but with consistent use, I love how it keeps my skin clear and useful.

Gucci foundation – My every day foundation is CC Cream (during the week) and Laura Mercier (on the weekends). But holidays and events, I switch it up to Gucci foundation! It blends really well, gives you a glow, and it medium coverage.

Nars lipgloss in shade orgasm – If you love Nars blush in shade Orgasm, you will love this lipgloss. This is the prettiest pink, especially in the summer, after you’ve used your self tanner 😉

St Tropez Face Tanning Mist – I forgot to mention I don’t use self tanner on my face. I have sensitive skin and I’m too concerned it will break out. Instead, I spray this facial mist. It smells amazing and works pretty fast. I always tend to over spray because it doesn’t have color when it initially sprays and then after a few hours I look a little orange.. need to find a good balance, but it works!! And, most importantly, doesn’t make me break out.

Olaplex shampoo – The conditioner is also amazing but it’s an expensive set so if you have to choose one, order the Shampoo! I only use the shampoo & conditioner on Friday’s. It gives my hair amazing volume, shine, and style and lasts all weekend. There’s a lt of good protein and nutrients so you probably only need to wash your hair with this shampoo once x week.

Hope this helps!! Love hearing what your ordered in the Sephora sale!! Leave your recommendations below… xoxo

What I Would Have Worn in Austin TX (if my flight didn’t get canceled)

Hiiiii! Already behind on my blog! Not that there’s too much going on right now – Ohio is starting to thaw out from Winter. It’s finally Spring, but we get beautiful & sunny 70* days during the week and cold, rainy 50* days on the weekend. So annoying…

Anyways.. My husband and I had a weekend trip planned to Austin, TX. We wanted to travel to a warmer climate and LA, Sedona, and Austin made our top 3. We decided on Austin for an end of Feb trip. Side note: Sedona is still my #1 – I’ve never been to Arizona before – but it’s pricey! From what I researched, a flight to Phoenix and then renting a car and driving to Sedona is the easiest option. It didn’t seem very convenient for a weekend trip.

Fast forward to the week or two before our trip and me constantly watching the weather! The temps in Austin were dropping from 80 to 30 degrees, WHAT?! It was looking like the weather was going to be just as cold and rainy as Ohio :(. I knew I’d be chilly on our trip but it was a vacation and I wanted to wear the outfits I picked! Read on below for how and when I”d style these outfits.

To wrap up this story, the day of our trip (Thursday), our flight from Columbus to Dallas straight up canceled. There was an ICE STORM in Dallas and all flights in and out were canceled. We were able to rebook through Charlotte for about the same times as our original flight so all was saved.. right? As we both got the car loaded and were about to drive off, we got a notification our flight from Columbus to Charlotte was delayed an hour. We had a tight connection so with this delay, we were going to miss our flight. Back inside to call the airline! There weren’t any other flights out that would get us to Austin earlier than 9pm so we were already missing our half day in TX. If we rebooked for Friday, we’d get in at 4pm. Our returning flights were scheduled for 6am Sunday, so our weekend trip would have ended up being 24 hours of fun! We opted to get our flights reimbursed and we’ll book for another time. But by then, it will be a different season & different outfits!

Thursday dinner – we had reservations for a BBQ restaurant:

I realized I didn’t get a pic of the back of this top. It buttons behind your neck (you will need help with this – cannot button alone, kind of annoying) and then ties around your waist, leaving an open gap on your back. Very pretty and flattering fit. Wearing an XS.

Friday Shopping Outfit: South Congress & lunch at La Perla’s oyster bar

I purchased this dress from Pink Lily when it was on final sale at the end of 2021. I love the muted colors, soft print, and flowy fit of this dress! I had been waiting for a chance to wear it and thought shopping around South Congress would be perfect! Unfortunately, I don’t think this dress is available anymore but they do carry similar styles.

Friday Night Date Night: Reservations at Aba

Ahhh this top! I fell in love with it when I saw it online. The print and the color reminded me of a tropical vacation (or a Tex-Mex restaurant in TX). I had to have it, I had to try it on. How does it even stay in place?? I picked up some fashion tape to be extra prepared.Spolier alert, I definitely needed the tape! There is just this open gap going diagonal in the front of the shirt. Very fun top. Definitely a splurge and not something I’d wear very often at all, but it’s fun for a special occasion/vacation.

Saturday Day outfit: No official plans/Brewery Hopping

I was the most excited for this chambray jumpsuit! When we first made the decision to travel to Austin, my vision was a denim jumpsuit. There were a couple I had saved to favorites on Revolve’s website (tagged below), but I couldn’t pull the trigger on a $300 outfit… yikes. When I saw this pop up on Like to Know it, I have never swiped up faster!! I found it on an Indianapolis Boutique I’d never shopped before (Magnolia Boutique). Cuuuute items!! I actually ordered this jumpsuit, a green dress (appearing later), and a green tea piece top/skirt I’m planning to wear for our anniversary dinner.

This is the green dress I mentioned above. How cute is the back?! It’s so comfortable and I love it even more on than on the website. How cute are these white western boots with the studs? Literally had the hardest time choosing shoes!! I wanted to bring every pair of boots I own – especially with the colder temps.

A few weeks later, my cousin invited us to a themed “TX BBQ” party – and I was thrilled! I had several outfits to choose from, thanks to this trip :). Spoiler alert, I ended up wearing the jumpsuit!

We also celebrated my daughter’s second birthday. Stay tuned for that post next. XOXO.

I’m Dreaming of a White…Sequins outfit for NYE



Hopping on to share the last post of 2021! This was my Christmas outfit but it also makes the perfect NYE outfit. I’ve worn everything from jeans and sweaters to Dresses to sequins joggers on Christmas. I’ve seen a trend over the last two years where, whenever I leave the house, I get as glam as possible, haha! Plus, I set the bar pretty high when I wore a skirt for Thanksgiving… I can’t be dressier for Thanksgiving than on Christmas, can I? I absolutely think you should wear whatever you’re comfortable in because that’s when you’re most confident! Confidence is always the top priority.

This off the shoulder sweater actually appeared on one of my IG ads. I thought it was a dress so I clicked on it to find it was two pieces (sold separately). I immediately pictured the sweater with a sequins skirt and did a quick search to see what I would find. I never dreamed of finding THIS perfect skirt – the color, the length, the quality, the slit. Everything about it is perfect! It’s even the same label as the sweater, coincidentally. Definitely a splurge, but I don’t have anything in my closet like this and think I’d absolutely be able to re-wear this for NYE or another holiday. I’m also a BIG fan of the graphic tee + sequins skirt + tennis shoe trend. Add a bold lip and you look so chic. That’s an outfit I could wear for a lunch or a dinner and feel more comfortable being in public.

The sweater is so soft and a cropped fit. You can front tuck it or not and either way still has a nice fit. It’s a boatneck neckline and can be worn on or off the shoulder. I love how the model wears it off the shoulder but wish I would have sized up one to achieve that a little easier. I ordered a Small and think it was a little tight to wear it off the shoulder all night. So size up if you like the off the shoulder look. I also ordered a Small in the skirt and it’s the perfect fit. Bonus, it’s fully lined! I was worried about the slit being too high but it’s conservative enough where I didn’t feel like i’d have to wear a slip or shorts underneath. I did see a trick on TikTok to wear a tulle skirt underneath something with a high slit and it looked really pretty! Might only work with a skirt more A-line or full but worth a try if you’re feeling uncomfortable.

Anyway, both the sweater and the skirt are FREE two day shipping! Still time to order and arrive before NYE… just saying 🙂 xoxo Happy New Year!!

Last Minute Holiday Outfit

Only TWO more sleeps until Christmas Day!! Hopefully gifts are purchased & wrapped, meals are planned, and houses are cleaned. As an adult, it’s so stressful during this time! I’m so excited to see Christmas through my toddlers eyes. She reminds me it’s a magical time! Another stress point is.. WHAT TO WEAR. I definitely wait until the last minute to decide, search through my closet, find nothing, and panic! Luckily one of my favorite retailers offers two day shipping for FREE! If you’re in need of a last minute Holiday outfit (Christmas or NYE), I’ve linked a few of my favorites, including this dress!

This dress is a whole VIBE! I was worried this dress would either be too short or too puffy. I’ve never heard of this brand before but it’s started by one of the Co-Founders of Wildfox. I love this crimson color with the green and white florals. It’s red and green but not in your face Christmas-y. Perfect to wear after the holidays too. I took a chance and ordered an XS – a) it was the only size available and b) it was listed as a size 4 so I assumed it would fit but it was tight. A small would have been more comfortable. However, the length is perfect (I’m 5’2″) and still looks fine paired with nude heels. The organza fabric give this dress the perfect shape and the elastic trim on the sleeves isn’t restricting. My favorite part is the neckline – it’s so feminine. Makes me feel so glam…

I’ll be sharing one more Christmas look… it’s pretty extra but will be perfect for NYE, too. For now, Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!! xoxo

Christmas Family Photos 2021

One of my favorite Black Friday deals is from CVS! They offer 50% off photo orders so I use that as an opportunity to upgrade to the gold foil option. I discovered this deal last year and was excited to see the deal return this year, too. I used our fall family photos because, at the time, I didn’t know we were getting these Christmas photos.

My husband and I both work for Corporate Retail and his employer offered these free 10 minute photo sessions. It cracks me up that she didn’t want to smile in any of these pics! She’s still so adorable. It was such a beautiful setup! And while we waited for our turn, they had a coffee bar and Cheryl’s cookies available outside. We lucked out with a sunny day, too! Which was very fortunate since it was about a 30 minute wait and I was in a mini skirt.

I wasn’t sure what the background setting was going to look like, but I knew Olivia was going to wear this ivory dress with a fur collar. So I based my outfit around the same colors. I ordered this leather skirt in fall 2020. It’s out of stock now, but I did link a similar one from another retailer! The sweater was a last purchase from Revolve. Thank goodness for their two day shipping times. It was actually on sale when I ordered it but I see it’s back to full price. I wasn’t even sure if I was going to wear this, but I wanted to option. I love the shoulder and back cutout! It turns an a sophisticated ivory turtleneck sweater into something sexy. I normally order a S in sweaters because I don’t like them tight but they only had an XS available. It fits well but it is shorter or more cropped than I expected. Maybe the S would have been a better length but I plan to wear this sweater with skirts and high waisted jeans anyway.

Olivia’s been pretty opinionated about everything she wears: hats, shoes, mittens, coats, pajamas, and every day outfits. I gave her a choice of this white dress or a green velvet jumpsuit with gold embroidery and a fur coat. Tried the jumpsuit first but she didn’t even want to put it on. But had no problem with this dress. I think I saw Sarah Knuth post about this: she picks out two clothing options she likes and then lets her kids choose the outfit. Going to try that from now on. Any other mamas have any tips for opinionated toddlers 🙂

Jackets for Fall

While “Winter” doesn’t officially begin until December 21st… even though the temperature feels like it in Ohio, plus with Christmas decorations and activities in full swing, it’s tough not to skip the last few weeks of “Fall”.

If you follow me on IG, you know that I was once again traveling up to Geneva for a night in Ohio’s “wine country”. We went with another couple and it was their first night away from their one year old! It was already our third time visiting these wineries so we showed them our favorite places. First stop is always Laurentia for lunch + drinks. Not in any particular order, but M Cellars and Harpersfield are next on the list. Anything else along the way is fair game and we did stop at Red Eagle Distillery for the first time! Ordered a pumpkin spice cocktail that was sooo delic. I honestly expected the ‘lake effect’ weather to be so much cooler in Geneva but it was nice and sunny. Would have reconsidered my outfit if I would have known 🙂 But can’t go wrong dressing in all staples!

Start with a neutral sweater and my favorite mom jeans for the base. Add a suede jacket for added warmth and pair a bold snakeskin print bootie. You probably have everything in your closet to recreate this look, any bold bootie will work! These exact pair are from DSW but I purchased a few years ago. I didn’t see these on the website but did link smiliar pairs if you like this print. I’ve mentioned this suede jacket before – I waited until the Nordstrom anniversary sale to purchase. It’s pricey but I wear it so much in the fall. You’ll be so impressed with the quality!!

The next morning, we went into town to grab coffee and pastry before the long drive back to Columbus. The weather was definitely cooler, but as soon as we were in the car, I was shedding layers (TOO WARM). But I can’t say enough good things about this plaid zip up jacket! It is a cropped fit and the inside lining is satin so don’t expect the sherpa material on both sides… however, maybe it was the sweater underneath, but this jacket still kept me plenty warm! I’m wearing a small in the jacket and it’s pretty roomy in the arms so don’t worry about sizing up one. You also can’t beat the price!! It’s only $25 🙂 I forgot to pack a straight leg pair of denim so here I am stuffing my mom jeans inside of my suede knee high boots, hahaha! Made it work!

I can’t believe we’re already in December!! Check out my post on gift guides if you haven’t already! Happy Shopping xoxo

Sephora Holiday Sale 2021

The Sephora Holiday Sale opens up to all rewards members starting TODAY!! Use code YAYHOLIDAY for 10%, 15%, or 20%, depending on your member status. It’s a great time to splurge on an item from your wish list, stock up on your faves, or buy gifts. Love their holiday kits and included a few in my top pics (collage above)! I want to quickly review the products in my collage and why I chose them:

Huda Beauty #BombBrows Microshade Brow Pencil – I wear shades Medium Brown and Rich Brown. I like to add contrast so I’ll outline in one shade and then fill in with the other for dimension. The pencil is ultra thin so it makes realistic hair strokes. It’s literally the thinnest tip in the market. Plus I’ve never had any issues with the pigment running or fading throughout the day.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder – first of all, Charlotte Tilbury’s marketing calls to me! The products are so shimmery and all of the containers are gold and white. They’re definitely products you can leave out on the counter and it will look pretty vs cluttered 😉 This setting powder is so light weight! I struggle with oily skin and rarely re-apply this throughout the day! I wear the shade Medium and this also comes in mini sizes if you want to test the product before committing to full size. This setting powder truly gives you a smooth complexion and helps set my under eye concealer. I re-purchased this product during the sale.

Lancome Monsieur Big Volumizing Mascara – I honestly used to wear Maybeline Falsies from the drugstore because I couldn’t find a high end mascara that was as volumizing or as thickening as Monsieur Big. Now I’d be curious to try Falsies again to see what I think, lol. I also first apply the Cils Booster primer, but days that I’m just at home and want a swipe of mascara before jumping on a video call, I put on two coats of this mascara and still think it’s magic! It looks so natural and never clumpy. You can purchase the holiday set, or an individual full or mini size.

La Mer Creme de la Mer Moisturizer – I mean, if you really want to splurge….. why not choose this item? The temps are dropping, the heat inside is running (at least here in Ohio) and my skin is suffering. This comes in multiple sizes, ranging from $95 – $530. Whoa. I’ve purchased the smallest size available in a past Sephora sale and it’s perfect for this season. There’s so many benefits of using this cream. TBH, mine didn’t last long enough to allow me to see the benefits but I can attest to how moisturizing it is. I probably wouldn’t use this during the day, it is a little thick and I’m not sure how it would look under makeup IMO

Another splurge item is the Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil Free Foundation – Medium to tan, neutral color 6.5. I just looked through my past order to find that and see I purchased this Dec 2020! It’s definitely not my everyday foundation but for the few big events, holidays, or date nights I’ve pulled this out and it’s lasted me a year now. It is medium coverage but also buildable so I normally add another coat of foundation to a problem area. Then my concealer on top of that and voila. As I mentioned with the oily skin, this is a great foundation because it is oil free. The foundation gives a really beautiful airbrushed effect but also glowy so not that dried matte appearance that I hate.

The Inkey List Hyalauronic Acid – Best hyaluronic serum and it’s under $10 (More with code YAYHOLIDAY). Another perfect item to add to your skincare lineup for the dry winter months.

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palette – Last Devenmber I also ordered this eyeshadow palette in color Pillow Talk Palette of Pops. I definitelyy wanted this shimmery set for the holidays. They’re beautiful and pigmented so really make a statement. Outside of Christmas and NYE, I wore this for a wedding this year. So not something I wear very often, but they’re beautiful and I’ll def wear again this holiday season.

Amika Blowout Buffet Blow Dryer Brush Set – I haven’t used this product but when I saw my stylist in October I asked her about the Revlon blow dry brush I use and how damaging it is for your hair. She recommended the Amika brush instead. I knew there was the holiday sale upcoming and I found the brush in a set with detangling primer and dry shampoo. All three for under $100!

Peter Thomas Roth Instant FirmX Eye Temporary Eye Tightener – This has been on my wish list but sold out for such a long time!! It restocked slightly before the sale started but I took my chances and waited until I could shot the sale. Luckily, it’s still available and I was able to order. Apparently it’s a quick-fix treatment that helps tighten, firm, and smooth the eye area. I’m going to pray it’s like a miracle botox (without the needles).

Laneige Midnight Minis – I keep one of these lip masks by my bed and apply every night. They hydrate and nourish lips by the morning. I really struggle with chapped lips and these really help.

Olaplex Healthy Hair Essentials – This is the first item I added to cart. This might be the best holiday kit. It includes full size items of shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, and an oil I’ve never used before (but excited to try). I first ordered the shampoo & conditioner when I was 4 month PP and losing more hair than I’m used to. I use it about once a week, mostly because of the price but it also repairs my hair so well, I don’t think I need to it more than 1 x week. Highly highly recommend for a good hair day!
