Friday Notes

These pink birkenstock like sandals are back in stock!

This is the book we’ve been reading to the kids at night. The stories are so inspirational and encourage great conversation.

Do I use mascara primer, and should you use it too? Yes! Ever since I stopped getting lash extensions, I’ve been using lash boosters, taking biotin and collagen (to grow hair) and trying to get my lashes to look longer. I tell you, it’s hard being a girl sometimes.

I have $100 gift card from Nordstrom, how should I use it? See below some goodies I rounded up from the NSALE. My advice is, stock up on neutral layers that will stand the test of time and many trends. For example, a cute trench coat.

I’ve been making TWIX bars all week, just ask my kids. We ate them till our stomach hurt. GFDF! Now, I can’t wait to make these paleo pancakes. YUM!

My best friend is in Paris, I can’t help but wish I was there with her, booking the next table at the amazing cafe: Les Deux Margots.

I love this jelly peel. It literally makes your dead skin come off!

I’m day 3 using Biotin gummies for hair. So yum. Now, I need to hide them from Reid.

This is the color safe shampoo and conditioner I’ve been loving

Have you tried makeup melt? It’s clean beauty and so good. That’s it for now. The kids have VBS this weekend, yay! As for me, I’ll be running around DTLA beating the heat in a lightweight nursing friendly dress working on a fun project to come. What are you up to?

I can’t tell you how excited I am that the sun is out! It has been a rainy couple of weeks in LA, and there is more to come. In the meantime, I’m stocking up on lace tops. This one doubles as a swim cover-up, dressed up with heels or dressed down with spanx leggings and a baseball cap. Which is your favorite? I feel like this gloomy weather lately is making us enjoy the brief moments of sunshine all the more! Its all about attitude right? Especially when I’m facing homework with the kids this week, so much patience, but summer is around the corner and seeing their “Ah-ha” moments are pretty special. Hope you have a great start to the week!

With jeans, I usually size down, but with faux leather leggings, I order my usual size as they normally fit true to size. These Spanx do! Showing some more faux leather leggings below:

If you’re curious what pieces I’m loving for fall, it’s the following: faux fur stole, charm bracelets (which are back), lots of leather, and embroidered kitten heels. All SOLE SOCIETY items are under $70, and did I mention that this ($55) faux fur stole can be added to virtually any jacket in your closet for a chic update? It will adorn anything from leather jackets to camel coats. Absolutely try this at home and upgrade your Monday #ootd.

I’m all about the simple #ootd. Let’s be honest, I struggle everyday to get four children out of the house for school, so I’ve been finding myself gravitating toward the simplest of pieces. Here, a shirtdress, faux leather leggings, and and edgy nude heels take center stage. It also happens to be just as appropriate for meetings as it is for date night. For the latter, I would add a suede jacket and lace up boot . After all, basics can very well be classics when paired well. As for the smiles from my little guy, I’d like to thank the dried mango and lollipops, not shown.
