Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

I got a pocket, got a pocket full o sunshine…

This song is STUCK IN MY HEAD! Help!
I think because it is nearly 70 degrees outside and I am in a great mood, besides the fact I cannot hear, or breath.
I have just been a little under the weather this week! I had to have blood taken Monday {there is not much I despise more} and I left work yesterday because I thought my head was going to explode. Just a little sick girl. Good news? feeling much better today. I literally woke up at 8, and was out the door at 8:20. Sadie looked at me like I was a loon. Look how cute she is snuggled up in my mountains of fluff. 
Loves the Sadie girl!
Anyhoo I don’t have much of anything useful to say today so I thought I would just show ya my outfit of the day! 
Bam. There it is. 
Things to note: 
  1. I love my true religion jeans. I love them even more that they are now too big and I must wash AND DRY them in order for them to fit, and then they are still big after. YAYYY says the girl who is trying to lose weight! 
  2.  Don’t you judge me that I am wearing Clinique Happy {circa ’97} I found a baby bottle of it the other day and something about it just said “welcome spring” to me. Ha! I do have a slight perfume obsession.  See here if you don’t believe me. (collection has expanded since post, must update with recent finds.)
  3. Sadie snuck in the OOTD. She just wants to be included.
  4. That would be OPI Mimosas for Mr. and Mrs. on my hands (still rocking teenage dream on my tootsies)
  5. My DY ring that I have on is actually the light purple, but I couldn’t find a pic.
  6. I love cardigans and fitted super soft v neck T’s. Throw in some sexy heels and bling and I feel oh so “J.Crew meets Elle Woods”.  😉 haha
And here is the necklace I have on, thanks to Leigh Ashley
And a pic of my unwashed hair. The messy bun thing is always a fantastic quick fix for the gal who likes to sleep in.  😉
I’ve got dinner with my girlfriends tonight {weekly Thursday tradition!} so that is good. Thinking about swinging by best buy for a camera charger beforehand, so y’all can finally have REAL pics from me, instead of iphone ones!
AAAAND look what I treated myself to at lunch today. 
 Oh heavens how this makes me want to just write a big ole to-do list. 
Love love. heart heart.
