I’m linking up with Narci, Andrea and Erika today and sharing my favorite things from the week.
Here’s hoping you have a spectacular weekend!
Yesterday was the last day of school. Look at these comparisons…
…not only have my kiddos grown physically, but they have matured so much over the last nine months too. It’s bittersweet to wrap up this school year. We loved their teachers, we loved their classes, we loved everything about first and kinder…we’re leaving on such a high note.
Ahhhh! We had such a wonderful time on Saturday night at a neighborhood party. This was a favorite of mine FOR SURE! Speaking of favorites…my black dress there that you’ve now seen me in approximately 4,693 times. Well…after I wore it yet again on Saturday night, I went ahead and ordered a second one in blue. Because for $48…I needed two (or else I was going to wear the black one out!). It comes in 6 pretty colors and I obviously just can’t quit it :). And my new summer earrings are from Bauble Bar and are already sold out. Boo. You can find a multitude of similar ones here though also from Bauble Bar.
We did it! We did something good for ourselves every day in May. Thank you so much for participating with me and for throwing out such great suggestions. Several of them were really good for me and I hope to continue them into the summer (and make them a permanent habit!).

Random I know…but I’ve been loving these Outshine popsicles. They come in a variety of flavors but I only buy the coconut…because I can’t get enough coconut in my life. I was about to finish one the other day and snapped a pic for you. Who doesn’t love popsicle season?!

Okay…remember how a few weeks ago, I told you ladies that I found this new Lancome lipstick and gloss that I love? And several of you told me to try their mascaras? Well, I did and LOVED IT! So…I did something crazy…I tried one of their waterproof mascaras and a waterproof eyeliner…because come summertime, I often find myself in the pool at the end of the day and if I have on regular eye makeup, then I look all crazy when I get in and it runs everywhere. So, let me introduce you to my two new friends…
I wore both over the weekend and my eye makeup never ran. Never. Now, if I’m home or head to the pool early in the morning, I just skip makeup. But take Sunday for instance…I went straight from church to my mom’s house, so I put this on for church and then swam at my mom’s and did not look all crazy eyed when I got out of the pool. #winning
Nordstrom noticed that I was naturally using their new Sexy Summer Beauty Products (which is now trending on their site)…I mean, who doesn’t want sexy summer beauty ;)??? So, they asked me to share some of my faves. Several of the items were already in my bathroom drawer including the mascara and liner above. Here are two of the other summer beauty staples that I love…
Love Nars blush in Orgasm. It’s a cult classic that looks great on EVERYONE! Read the reviews…everyone loves it!
And these lip pencils are some of my favorite too because they stay on all day long and don’t melt in your bag. And when you live in Texas and your bag is in the heat a lot…not melting is a big deal! I have Roman Holiday and Sex Machine but they come in a multitude of colors!
So, that’s some of my favorite summer stuff to go along with my new eyeliner and mascara. Look below for just a few more fun sexy summer beauty pieces…
