Join Me at Serena & Lily!

July 25, 2014

You guys – do you know about Serena & Lily? Are you offended that I’m even asking you that (of course we know about Serena & Lily Shannon)? There was a time when I was obsessed with interior design and I was on Serena & Lily’s site allllllll the time, lusting and coveting my face off. Well did you know that Serena & Lily also carries other stuff besides just home decor? Like cute totes, scarves, adorable swimsuit covers, super cool art, etc? Mmmmmyeah.

Given how rad this company is, I am ecstatic to share with you that next Wednesday, July 30th from 5-7pm, I will be an event correspondent for Serena & Lily’s big store opening in San Francisco! If you’re in the bay area, come see the new shop, eat some treats, drink some wine (or diet coke in my case), and of course SHOP. I’d love to meet your pretty faces too! Here are all the details:

Serena-and-Lily-InviteHope so, so, so much to see you there!

I like people who help people

July 10, 2014

And that’s why I like anneb and The Made Collection. Anneb is an authentic international handbag brand with custom-made, adorrrrrrable handbags, clutches, totes and cosmetic bags (no, really. Check them out. Uh. Dor. Able.). The Made Collection is the philanthropic brainchild of anneb’s creator, Sarah Burroughs. Sarah is running a campaign on Indiegogo from now until July 25 that deserves some major love and attention. Long story short, she is starting a sewing school that will do two really cool things: a) employ refugees in the Salt Lake City area (helping people!), AND b) restore the long lost art of sewing (ummm, if only I knew how to sew). As someone who genuinely believes in the importance of service and in this particular cause, I had to share it with you!

The link below will take you to a very, very short video that will explain more about Sarah’s campaign. If you feel inspired to do so, you can make a donation HERE. Service is cool. Giving back is cool. Helping others is suuuupes cool. It makes you feel good, amiright? And we’ve all been given so much – we all have a lot to be grateful for. Here’s a way you can easily pay it forward. Thanks for your consideration and attention to this rad cause! Good luck Sarah! xoxo

p.s. Keep your eyes peeled next week for how I styled the killer spotted print clutch shown below. It’s officially one of my faves.

Makeup with bareSkin Foundation

June 12, 2014

Photos by the talented Kirsten of KNW Photography

Yep – that be my mug right thurr, without a stitch of makeup on it (ok that’s a lie – my eyebrows are filled in, mostly because I just had them waxed before I took these pics and I just couldn’t bear to undo the incredible handy-work of my eyebrow gal. So sue me?). Meet my freckles and uneven skin tone. They’re awwwwwesome. Now let’s talk about this new liquid foundation from bareMinerals, shall we? To begin: admittedly the words liquid and foundation always make me an immediate skeptic, mostly because liquid foundation and I haven’t ever gotten along to well.

Eyelash Extensions

April 10, 2014

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my eyelashes. That’s because for the last couple months, I’ve been rocking eyelash extensions! The idea was that they’d be a great thing to have during the last couple months of my pregnancy, since we didn’t really know when the babe would actually come. And this way even if he came in the middle of the night, I’d have something that made me feel mildly presentable. Turns out none of that ended up being necessary (baby was a week late and I was induced!), but I sure have enjoyed my eyelash extensions all the same!

The truth is, I had my skepticisms about getting them at all. Would they make my real eyelashes fall out? Would they weigh my eyes down? Would they itch or get infected or just be wildly annoying? Would they even look good? Would I get attached to them and then feel like I wasn’t cute without them? LOTS of concerns – cuz I’m a freak like that.

In case you’ve wondered about eyelash extensions yourself and/or had any of the same questions, I wanted to share my experience with you! I’ve pulled in the master-mind who did my eyelash extensions to answer some FAQ’s and do some myth busting.

Here we g0!

$250 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway!

April 3, 2014

Happy Thursday friends! Quick update: Baby J is still in my belly. We’ve concluded that he is either taking after his mommy and just running late, or taking after his daddy and being stubborn. Haha – jokesssss about that second part. I just really felt like pretending that Chase was the stubborn one. Turns out he might be taking after his mommy on both accounts (never on time + stubborn = ME all the way. My husband is basically a perfect human. Which is a little bit obnoxious and annoying but always real real nice when you get to be the person married to him. K, end tangent.). Anyway, we’ll keep you informed!

How about a GIVEAWAY! Happy Thursday indeed, eh? I’ve teamed up with some of my fave bloggers to bring you the chance to win $250 to Nordy’s. Woot woot! Click ‘Continue Reading’ to enter!
