Friday Favorites-- Makeup/Skin Care Goodies

This week for Friday Favorites, I have some great makeup and hair care to share!!!

I love these lip goodies from Kristofer Buckle. These are such great long wearing lipsticks. And I love these colors. Perfect for spring.

I have the hardest time with dry shampoo. My hair is so fine that some of the different products out there are too strong and harsh. I love this Organic Apple Cider Vinegar dry shampoo from dpHue. Love love it!! I love the texture and it smells wonderful.

And I'm loving these hair products from Orlando Pita. The Gloss Up Weightless Polishing Cream makes my hair so shiny, and the Time Capsule Fortifying Treatment Mask is perfect for my hair after a long week running around with my kids.

I'm also loving these products from Provision. The face oil is so fabulous and smells amazing. And these days my lips have been so dry and this lip balm has literally saved me!!!!

I hope you check out these fabulous beauty lines. I know you will love them as much as I do. You can shop these products by clicking on the links above.  Happy Reading!!!!

A Spring Dress

Dress-- Vici-- similar here, here
Wedges-- Marc Fisher
Bag-- Cult Gaia

I am so excited that it is the finally dress weather in the OC!!!! I love dresses all year long, but they are my go to especially on a warm spring day!!!

I feel like as a busy mom a dress is the perfect throw on for me to get through my days. My fellow moms out there, don't you feel like some days are so hard. I am a taxi driver, chef, housecleaner, professional errand runner, therapist and the list goes on and on. Sometimes I just want to stay in bed all day because my to do list can be so overwhelming. But there is something about the spring air and taking the time to get myself ready, whether that is by putting on a cute outfit or makeup, or whatever it is that day that helps me tackle my day. Do you guys ever feel this way?

I picked up this cute dress from Vici. I love the fit and print. I paired it with my go to Marc Fisher wedges and my favorite spring/summer arc bag.  This is the perfect look for a busy lady like me. What is your favorite everyday look on your busy days?  Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos. You can shop this look by clicking on the links above.  Happy Reading!!!

Happiness is ....

"Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is"
                             Mandy Hale

What is your definition of happiness? I love this quote because happiness to me at this stage in my life is all about acceptance. It has taken me such a long time to come to this conclusion and I have to say, it is life changing. I've learned throughout the last few years so much about accepting things that I can't control around me and just being happy with the here and now.  I've also learned to be present in the moment and not let distractions affect me. When I'm with my kids, and my hubby, I try to put the cell phone away and really listen and be present in the moment. 

This also goes for my blog. I absolutely love blogging and it makes me so happy. Just hanging out with some wonderful women I have met, attending events or writing my posts, I'm really trying to take it all in and enjoy it in the moment. What are your views of happiness? How do you balance it all?

This kimono makes me happy, and I tried pairing it with a wider leg jeans for a change. And I added these cute flats that I think I will be wearing all spring and summer long. Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos. You can shop this look by clicking the links above. Happy Reading!!!
