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

Items up for discussion:

It’s been a weird week, and my mind is bouncing off the walls. Let’s discuss a few things shall we? 
1. Carrie has been LOVING her some short blingy dresses, no?
For a second, I almost thought the dress she wore to the CMT Music Awards red carpet was the same one she performed in, but alas, I don’t believe it is. Close though. Very close…
I’ll tell ya what concerns me here, and it is the lack of a bountiful poof. Please don’t mistake me for giving C girl the side eye, but I guess I kind of am. She has been rocking this frizzier, flatter hair, and I simply won’t stand for it. Get it back to normal Carrie, I can’t have you with mediocre locks 😉
I did however LOVE her whole look here at the American Idol Finale a few weeks ago. I will have all of this please. 
Her hair and legs were on POINT, and that dress is just killer. 
2. I forgot to show you all my shoes from last weekend. 
I got these gorgeous Badgley Mischka’s…
I am totally kidding, but I DID find some extremely close knock off’s at Off Brodway for like $30. SOLD. 
3. Target dresses are my friend. 
I have been wearing the bejeezus out of them. 
4. Baby Lou is in NYC all summer!! 

She is working up a guest post for us about her adventures, but here is a little clue about what she is up to!

precious little muffin baby sissy! LOVE her 😉 haha
5. Bedroom mission. I’m on it. 

Well I haven’t done anything with my bedroom since last you last saw it, but I’ve been inspired by both of these pics to add some curtains to the wall behind my bed. I mean I already have pink silk curtains, a white fluffy bed, girly blingin’ accessories (pssh, please, I got those for days) so all I need to do is add some light and dark greys in the mix and voila. improvement

OH and a padded headboard. I want one of those too. 

6. I love my Scentsy warmer. 

I got three new fragrances and I LOVE. I tend to like the clean smells so I got… 
satin sheets                            clean breeze                                      luna
LOVVVE them all, but satin sheets is amazing. My room smells divine, don’t be jealous. 😉
7. My cousin’s baby Elise is HOME from the hospital! 
Remember this little nugget when she was 1 lb 4 oz!?
Well she is home and just about the cutest thing I have ever seen! So happy for my cousin and her sweet little family. Cannot wait to meet her!
8. Let’s raise awareness. 
I got the sweetest email from a reader Catherine, who is 17 and this past year was diagnosed with epilepsy. It has been a very scary time for her and her family, but she is doing well and asked that I share about the “Seize the Day” Epilepsy Walk in St. Louis June 16! If you are in the area, help show your support by participating. You can also visit her page here 🙂 
SHEW, and I am finished. That’s all I got kids. ALTHOUGH, I do have some exciting news, but can’t share just yet. But it’s exciting I promise 😉
And no, I am not pregnant. Are you serious???

  3. Okay…

    1) I absolutely love your shoes that you bought!!! Also, did you know Badgley Mischka both have a house in Lexington, Kentucky,

    2) Your sis is an intern with The Daily Show. How cool! How did she get that gig?

  4. Kelsey says:

    I was waiting for the post on carrie! I was a little dissapointed in her look loved the american idol though! and your baby sissy is precious and I am looking forward to that post. Love both of the bedroom inspiration! Good news on monday? I think that would be appropriate ha!

  5. Jenna says:

    I love Scentsy! I just order some Luna and I can't wait to melt it. I have Echo in my warmer right now. Yes, it is a mans scent but who doesn't like to smell a delicious man?? 🙂

  6. OH PLL, I LOVE YOUR bedroom, please redesign mine ASAP!


  7. Gina says:

    We love us some Satin Sheets in our house too!

  8. Tiffany says:

    I'll take Carrie's hair, legs, outfit…oh and man…please and thank you!!
    Such a precious picture of your cousins baby girl.

  9. Of course we didn't think you were pregnant! You're too funny…
    Can't wait to hear the news, though!
    And that baby is absolutely adorable!!!!
    And your shoes and dress are pretty cute too.
    Have a lovely weekend, Hun!

    Ok, I don't even know where to start commenting! a. Ive been following Elise's mommy's blog and it was soo good to read that she was coming home…she is just adorable!! b. Love Carrie Underwood, but due to no tv I hadn't seen the pictures. Her hair does look frizzy…maybe you need to give her some advice?? 🙂 c. I love the bedroom inspirations. I made my own headboard. Got some wood from Home depot, some foam and fabric from Joanns, and all you need is a staple gun 🙂

    pff…i think thats all

  11. Jenn says:

    Love the updates!! How awesome is that for your seester! And who asked u if u were preggers? They need glasses!

  12. I have known Catherine since the day she was born. Her aunts and uncles on her mom's side of her family all babysat me. She is an amazing young woman and I cannot ever speak anything but kind words about her and her family. They have supported me throughout my life no questions asked. I ask all of you to support her in her endeavors. She truly is remarkable, inspirational, and incredibly generous with her beautiful heart and soul. Thank you Pink LouLou for posting this, I am currently abroad in France right now and this was just what I need to boost my melancholy spirits!


  13. Nikki says:

    Dang! Her dresses have been getting shorter and shorter over the years but then again.. If I had legs like hers.. I would probably be sporting a dress like that too 🙂

    LUNA is one of my favorite scents too 🙂 mmmm!

    Love the bedroom ideas! Looks like heaven!

    Have a good weekend!

  14. Lesley says:

    Ooh I love the padded headboard! Great idea. Carrie has the best legs ever. Well jeal of them. xx

  15. Krystal says:

    Love the shoes!! I wish they had them online….not a store any where close to me!! I would love them in black for my friends wedding in October!!
    Luna is my fave!!

  16. Angie says:

    oh my gosh carrie's legs are to dieeee!! i'd wear those short dresses too if i could pull it off, but they are super short!! they're all sparkly and look the same lately, what's up with that? can't wait to hear your news!

  17. Melanie says:

    Carrie is absolutely gorgeous, but that frizzy hair you speak of is just awful. Most people fight it, don't do it on purpose! I have to admit, I liked the bling dresses, but they were too similar to wear both on the same night!

    NYC=amazing. So jealous of your sis! How fun!

    Shoes are gorg. I need to get to Lex to do some major shopping.

  18. Cait says:

    love the shoes girl and how awesome for your sister!! so exciting!

  19. Brittany says:

    Is that Eric foreman posing with baby Lou?!?

  20. My daughter told me about your blog and I must say I'm obsessed! LOVE LOVE LOVE
    We both called each other over our disappointment in carries hair at the awards show : ( Give us the cute Carrie styles back!
    Everything else in your post is just adorable!!!!
    Your newest fan, Michele

  21. Jill says:

    I cannot wait to hear from baby Lou! 🙂 Also, I just recently ordered a Scentsy but couldn't remember the name of that Love spell scent you told us about. So I will be ordering that in the future. Love the shoes….I try not to go in Off Broadway too much. Otherwise I would be more broke than I already am, hehe 😛

  22. Bren says:

    Just recently found your blog. Very FABULOUS!!! Love the shoes and room ideas. I also LOVE Carrie too! Feel free to check out my page as well.

  23. Kate says:

    Great post! Love the bedroom inspiration

  24. I have been following your cousins blog and am SO happy for your family!! Elise is SO precious!! 🙂

    Luna is one of my fave scentsy scents too!! Even the hubby likes it!!

    Your little sister is gorg!! What a fun summer she will have being all Carrie in NYC.

  25. I wish I could pull off short blingy dresses! Love those shoes!
    I'm so with you on needing to decorate my bedroom, mine is so bland. I need something to spice it up!
    Oh my gosh such a cute little girl! WOW she was SO tiny!!
    Happy Monday 🙂

  26. Chelsie says:

    I'm late to the party on commenting… but I absolutely hated carrie's hair. flat/frizzy hair is never ok.

    but her body doesn't stop. can't fault her for that.

  27. Sarah O says:

    What a great blog! I love Carrie's dress, but if I had legs like that I would show them off too.

  28. Love the bedroom ideas! I wish I could make my room look that girlie!
