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

Damn you GiGi.

Ummm this week has been crazy. Hence lack of my blog presence. 
Guess what miraculously appeared in the break room today at work? a BOX of GiGi’s cupcakes. 
Of course I had to have a champagne one, and am now filled with remorse after a google calorie search.
le sigh. (but I did only eat half…)
In other news, how cute is this necklace? I have a pretty aqua one (#3) coming my way! I could not decide on a color because they were all so cute. But I can’t wait to wear the aqua one with navy!
They are on sale for $19.99 on GroupDealz. Have you all been on this website? It is super cute, they have daily boutique deals. Does not disappoint 😉 
You know what I have been having WAY too much fun with? Designing the babies birthday books. Here is a preview of their circus themed pages… So.Stinkin’.CUTE!
love their hearts. They just got back from vacay in Grand Cayman where the whole family volunteered at the Human Society on the island. HOW sweet is that? Such a great idea to do with your kids. 
This pic melts my heart… 
Love my girls.
Anyway, sorry for the completely random post. Just wanted y’all to know I am alive. 
Also, doing hair and makeup this weekend for two different weddings. Wish me luck! And don’t worry, I’ll document!

    After checking out GroopDealz I landed on the Monogrammed Koozies and fell in love. Black and pink damask with my initials on it? Yes please, thank you.

  2. Ali says:

    I love Groopdealz! I spend way to much money there too. That cupcake looks so yummy and pretty.

  3. Dayna Leigh says:

    Ahh! Thanks so much for sharing that website – I definitely snagged me a bubble necklace as well! Can't wait to get it in 🙂

  4. Lindsey says:

    I work for a university and I'm thankful everyday that I don't work on campus because there is a Gigi's just down the street. Next to Starbucks of course. They knew what they were doing when they picked their location! It takes every ounce of my being not to stop when I drive by.

  5. I just found group dealz this week and in addition to the bubble necklaces, I got the monogram koozie and the address labels, too. Holy best "deal" site ever!

  6. My fiance can't say no to sweets and he got a new position at his work on Friday and they had a doughnut party for him. He was so full when he got home he skipped dinner.

  7. Megan G. says:

    Such a good idea to go volunteer! Looks like so much fun. The books looks so awesome too, those are some lucky girls!

    Good luck with the weddings! I'm sure you'll do great!

  8. Rorie says:

    Ohhh what I would do for one of those cupcakes!

  9. I've missed you in these parts gurlie!

    Loving the necklace, I totally ordered it yesterday in green. I had a tough time deciding on a color too 😉

    $19.99 sure beats the heck out the asking price at J Crew which is $150 smackaroos!

  10. -Emily- says:

    Very cute necklace! I LOVE Gigi's champagne cupcakes…yum yum yum. Have you had cupcakes from Iveycake?? Because they are AMAZING…and you would prob love 'em since they made Carrie Underwood's weddin' cupcakes 🙂 🙂

  11. Caitlin C. says:

    Gigi's cupcakes are definitely a diet-ruiner… but holy moly do they taste amazing. I love the red velvet one!

  12. Krystal says:

    I got the same necklace, color and everything!!! Can't wait to wear it!!

  13. Kenzie Smith says:

    Love the necklace, but I don't think I could ever pull it off.
    That's so awesome that they all volunteered at the Humane Society!

  14. Kate says:

    Love those necklaces!!! Great find!

  15. Ashley says:

    Damn you, PLL for giving me cupcake cravings! 😉

    Love that aqua color! I bought a coral one I've worn a bunch, I also have a yellow one on the way. Too cheap to pass up!

  16. Danielle says:

    I ordered one of the J.Crew-esque bubble necklaces from your link. I hope you get credit for it 🙂 I own a few from J.Crew and this one is such a good deal and probably looks close to the original!


  17. Wishing I saw this deal earlier, the first 1000 ship within 7 days, and after that it's 21 days. I wanted it for my trip to Florida but I leave in two weeks…bummer!

  18. Champs cupcakes?!! Count me in, calories & all!!

  19. Jill says:

    I'm glad Gigi's is over on Richmond Rd and NOT close to my office…otherwise I'd be 60 lbs overweight! On another note, love that necklace. I recently ordered a KY blue one (of course). I'm sure I'll end up with other colors too!

  20. Brittney says:

    Champs cupcakes, sounds good to me.. calories, what calories?

  21. I was just thinking about how important it is to introduce children to volunteering, helping people (and dogs!), etc. So glad their family is doing that for them!

    Also, HOW ON EARTH did you eat half a cupcake?!?! It would have taken all my strength not to eat two.
