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

Current obsessions.

ok, let’s discuss. Several new obsessions:
1. Vitamin Water. I have recently become obsessed, I mean obsessed with Vitamin Water. 
And no, not because this chic reps it. 
But seriously, that is not why. I am trying to cut out the diet coke, so I have been trying to drink water. But water sometimes bores me. Insert Vitamin Water ZERO. No calories, lots of vitamins, BOOM. My kinda cocktail. 
My favorite it the VWZ Glow. SO good, it is a mix of strawberry-guanabana (what?) and is quite the tasty treat. 
Bonus? has somethin’ in it good for your skin! 
Here are some of my other favorites: The Drive one (orange and berry) also has caffeine for that morning little kick.
Seriously, so good. You will hardly find me without one in my hand. They are 10 for $10 at Krogers, and I use to spend that on McD’s DC’s anyway, so really it is win win. 
2. This pink trench coat from Vineyard Vines. 
I got it as a gift last year, but didn’t wear it until this spring. LOVE it! Makes me feel all 
‘Woods, comma Elle!’

{sidenote: not sure if it is still avail in stores, but you can try googling, it’s the pink Tortuga trench!}

3. My cousin’s engagement pics. 
How cute is she? I mean really, stop it Ginny. 😉 
4. This baby pug. 
My friend Lauren-Ashley just bought this pretty pretty princess. She will be joining us Memorial Day weekend, Sadie is so excited to make her acquaintance. 
5. This swimsuit, I will have one please. 
And her body. I’ll take that too. 
😉  xoxo

    Hate to tell you, but the Vitamin Water is as crappy as the diet coke. Its full of chemicals and oddly enough has NO vitamins in it. Might as well stick to your Diet Coke and enjoy it!!

  2. Lindsey says:

    Love vitamin water! Need to try these flavors you speak of. I always drink the revive when parched from hangover.

    you look like carrie in that trench pic.

    E-mail us back skank.

  3. Michelle P says:

    I recently started drinking vitamin water also! So yummy.

  4. lori says:

    i love vitamin water… i like the lemonade flavor. but after kelly jo's statement i may have to look a little deeper into it.


    My sister in law works at a gas station and I have her to order me a few cases a month and it is a lot cheaper that way.

  6. Jenna says:

    Your cousin totally looks like Taylor Swift in those pics!

  7. Lia Joy says:

    I love vitamin water! But I've never tried the "glow" kind. I'll have to get on that!

    And I love your pink trench!

  8. Hilary says:

    Mmm…does it have Splenda/Sucralose? I can't do that ish!

  9. Hey hun. You know that pic of you in the pink trenchcoat in the car….do you see the circle spots? It looks like sun spots? Well – some people call them orbs…and each orb represents someone who has passed on and you can only see the orbs in a picture – not in real life. BUt it means they are there with you. I have two such pictures. My family took multiple pics of our family standing against a wall and only one pic has the orb – and there are no windows or sunlight to make the orbs…so we believe it is our Gpa. Anyway – kinda cool….you have a lot of spirits with you….and now you have proof.

  10. Meredith says:

    love the pink trench coat, I buy Kirkland's (Costco) Vita Rain, same thing but cheaper and I like their flavors better and still zero calories. 🙂

  11. Aimee L says:

    I used to drink Vitamin Water allll the time! Now I'm on a green tea kick…love Snapple! That pink trench is super gorgeous on you!

  12. Caroline says:

    I've never tried that Vitamin Water Zero. Most of them have a funky aftertaste. Ick. Love the coat. Those engagement pics are fabulous. Super cute pup. And I too will take the bod with the kini!

  13. love that bikini top! oooo glitter!

  14. Melody says:

    I am in love with you VV trench, especially because it's pink, so cute! That Pug puppy is adorable as well. I'm looking for a Goldendoodle puppt right now and I can't wait to have my own! Have a great day!

  15. Georgina says:

    I usually only drink water and green tea (besides my one cup of coffee in the morning).

    Vitamin Water (and any other non-natural drink) that is free of sugars is full of other things that aren't good for your bone density (and teeth). Just be careful!!

  16. miss t says:

    The trench is adorbs. And I have that swim suit!!! In black, it fits so well!!! Enjoy!

  17. Gorgeous engagement photos! Your cousin is a hottie-puh-tottie

    Absolutely adorable new pupperz! You'll have to post pics of the puppy and Sadie's first play date! 🙂

  18. Adorable pics and ADORABLE BABY PUG!! Geeeeez I can't resist puppies. You know what I like in the morning? Straight up COFFEE, and the strong kind! I can't carry on without it. Nor do I have any motivation to get out of bed without it.

    Wow–so pretty engagement pics!!

  19. Caitlin A says:

    I am officially obsessed with those engagement pics as well! Great idea for mine coming up in 2 weeks!

  20. LOVE vitamin water!! I used to be a rep so I used to get a for free so I used to have CASES! haha Now I have to pay for it (BOO!!) but I SERIOUSLY love it!! My fav is the lemonade and go-go! After drinking zero I can not even drink the regular bc it tastes too sweet to me!

    I'll take the VS model's body too! If only the vitamin water could shrink me to her size! haha

  21. Tiffany says:

    I am trying to drink more water…I need to try Vitamin water.
    Love that coat on you!!

  22. I love that trench coat! And that swim suit is too cute, do they have it in green?

  23. Rebecca says:

    that vitamin water looks so yummy! and that one with caffeine is something I must try!

  24. OMG. That bathing suit is a total must and that trench was made for you. You look like a fabulous pink crime fighter. I love it.

    Thanks for the vote last week as well, love. The support means the world to me. xo

  25. Whitney says:

  29. LJE says:

    What kind of editor do you use to write on your photos?

  30. Emily says:
