Loving Lately

I was so happy to team up with Cuteheads this week and introduce a clip set and headband designed to match one of their new Spring dresses! The Spring collection along with our pieces debuted at Kendra Scott in Rice Village on Wednesday and I scooped up a pair of earrings before I left. They're this really beautiful pale pink and make me feel like Spring might be right around the corner.

I've been wanting to add a sweet little Valentine's touch to Liv's playroom and loved the garland Alli made for Liv's party so much that I asked if she'd make a mint and pink garland for me, and boy did she deliver. This one is 10 ft long and I looped it a couple times across our wall of Instagram prints (you can get them here, so easy!)

One of my New Year's resolutions was to drink more water and that's manifested in tea. I found this in Target yesterday and I like to sit down with a cup of tea and a Dove chocolate or two (okay, fine, six) and stalk all of your Instagrams. This tea is awesome. Really. Go get it.

I obviously have to include my anthroplogie cup or I'm not a real blogger, right?

How I've gone most of my make up wearing life sans primer is beyond me. I've used some occasionally but never with any consistency, and that's just been dumb. I've been using the Sephora Mattifying Primer for a few weeks and it makes a huge difference in how my makeup goes on (so much smoother, like spackle for my face) and how long it lasts. 

I put my makeup on around 8 am and really want it to last a good 12 hours. I'm talking through errands, diaper change wrestling matches, sloppy open mouth toddler kisses, and the occasional workout. This does the job.

Ah, adult acne. 

I remember my dermatologist telling me when I was 17 that by the time I hit my 20's that my struggles with acne would be a distant memory. Maybe she was just lying because she knew that as she wrote out my 13th (yes, 13) prescription in 6 years that my hysterical teenage self would have a complete meltdown in her office if she told me the truth, because here I am 10 years later still fighting the good fight.

Granted, it's a lot better than it was and no one is calling me pizza face anymore (and holy hell, 7th grade boys are mean), but I'm not a huge fan of the cystic blemishes that pop up every few weeks. Long story short, I've been trying this solution for larger blemishes and it does a super job of drying them up in a snap. Try this out, I think it's worth the money.

I hope you all have an awesome weekend....I'm dreaming of crepes, a gigantic pile of nachos, and lots of laying in bed. 


  1. I'm sitting at the salon waiting for my color to process & catching up on my blogs! Just wanted to drop a line and suggest an AMAZING skincare line. My skin has been a real A-hole for the past several months and I finallyyyyy broke down and got the Rodan + Fields Unblemish regimen that a friend had been telling me to try for a year. That stuff has been a game changer for me! I can't believe how clear my pores are...it's some crazy good stuff! Like you, I was dealing with the cystic bumps popping up a few times a month and I haven't had a single one since I started with those products :-)

  2. Love the earrings you bought. Do you know the exact color it's called? When I click the link, it doesn't look as "pink" as yours which are stunning. Thanks!

  3. I purchased a pair of Kendra Scott earrings today and I am madly in love with them! Same style but different color stone.

  4. Amazing earrings!! Oh and sign me up for crepes and Nachos. xo

  5. I love Kendra Scott earrings and I had not seen those beautiful pink ones yet! Love them!!! I will have to keep my eye out for them.

  6. Ugh did my comment not publish?? I'll try again :) I was going to say the exact same thing about the Rodan & fields unblemish line. I was having horrible cystic breakouts (and have always had a hard time with my skin) and then I tried this stuff after trying everything and it's the BEST. It has completely changed my skin and I seriously don't break out anymore. It's expensive but I only have to buy every 4+ months because it lasts awhile - and I just use the cleanser and spot treatment (this is the magic) and sometimes the toner. It will change your life :) Xo Jen

  7. Those Kendra Scott earrings are so pretty! Have a good weekend :)

  8. Love the Kendra Scott earrings! Perfect color for Valentine's, Easter, and spring all around!!

  9. Those earrings are stunning, love them!

  10. Mario Badescu makes a drying "lotion" similar to that Kate Somerville acne treatment, and there's a product similar called "Bye Bye Blemish" (or similar) available at Walgreens or Amazon for a bit of a cheaper price....just if you need some more affordable options! :)
