Poor Lincoln woke up with a high fever this morning so Harper and Kev went to the pool and I stayed home with an extra snuggly little babe. Hopefully he will be able to sleep tonight since last night was a total write-off.

On Saturday, we visited our friend Esther at Madewell in Highland Village where she was debuting her new Cuteheads collection. It’s so beautiful, I can’t wait for you all to see it! Harper wore the dress Esther created for her birthday and it couldn’t be any cuter! (her hair bow is by CharlieCocos).

We met up with Megan and Olivia and the girls enjoyed some mini-cupcakes from Sprinkles, while my soul died a little as I watched them eat all of the icing…ha. By the way, Willow Crowns has an adorable 4th of July capsule collection out right now— check it out here.

I had to return a dress at Banana Republic that I had ordered online and whilst there, I saw they were having a 30% off sale, plus an extra 20% off so I purchased a few tops for work. Most of the summer tops I wear to work are a year or two old, so it’s nice to get some fresh looks in my closet. I didn’t shop at Banana much last year when they had a new designer, but it looks like their looks are returning back to the style of clothes I love. Two of these tops are sheer and will require a cami underneath, but they’re so feminine and lightweight. I love that they have a sleeve so I don’t necessarily have to wear a blazer or cardigan with them.

My jeans in these photos are my best-skinny-jeans-ever by AG. You can find them here. I’m also wearing Tory Burch sandals— they’re nude, go with everything and I wear them daily for daycare drop-off (so much easier, and I just change into heels at work). I also wear them all weekend long!

Last week, I posted about this awesome white dress I got in my trunk from Trunk Club. A couple of days later when I went to order a size down, it was sold out in white! One of my awesome readers let me know today that it’s on sale plus an extra 30% off, which is a total score for such a classic dress. You can buy it here!

We just love our playroom. It’s such a bright and airy space, while also cheerful and colorful. I was so happy when our new Lorena Canals rug arrived. Y’all— it’s washable. Like, machine washable. The brilliance of that cannot be understated. Ours is this emerald ombre rug and it has the cutest tassels on each corner. It complements our mint green walls perfectly (the paint color is “mint essence by Olympic) and it creates a nice little space for Harper’s crafting/art/playdoh/tea party table. You can find our french tassel curtains here.

I went on a little bit of beauty binge this weekend at Ulta. I needed some replacements of favorites I had run out of and I wanted to try a bunch of new products as well so I can review them for y’all. I also needed some new mascaras/primers to try since my lashes are no beuno right now. For those of you that didn’t hear on Snapchat, I had my eyelash extensions removed and the post about my lash extension fail will be up tomorrow, so watch out for that!
Here’s what I got: drybar detox dry shampoo for brunettes– so excited to try this! |
living proof perfect hair day dry shampoo– have been using this a ton and love it | macadamia repairing mask– holy grail | Not Your Mother’s dry shampoos and dry finish texture spray | Nioxin cleanser for visibly thinning hair- the postpartum hair loss and texture issues are real #baldspots
It Cosmetics your skin but better CC cream (medium)- bloggers swear by this, so naturally, I had to try it | OPI polish in “mod about you”– my holy grail nail color | cover girl the super sizer waterproof | l’oreal double extend beauty tubes mascara
I can’t wait to report back on how I like these products. I also have some other beauty reviews but I have not been able to get them out of draft mode. Here’s to hoping I can get it together and post those soon!

Castor oil. I purchased two different types to try to make my lashes grow. I had read about it a lot online and watched some YouTube videos where women swear by it for lash growth. I ordered this one and this one. I actually thought it would be kind of fun if some of you ladies joined me for a “lash challenge.” That sounds really silly, but basically, let’s all use castor oil on our lashes for 4-6 weeks and post our results. If you’re not convinced it will work, check out this video! If you’re in, let me know here or on IG, and take a before shot!

Lincoln wore his first button-up shirt. That is all.
