Naming #5 was NOT easy. I repeat. It was a STRETCH to think of a two-syllable name that would sound good with his four siblings. Not to mention all the four critics.
1. KEEP IT A SECRET this is number 1 for a reason. If you don’t want 3 relatives and 2 cousins twice removed opinions, keep the name to yourself.

2. Put all the cards on the table – family names, names you like, religious affiliation, etc. We happened to be reading the Old Testament in devotions and came across LOTS of names we considered for this baby. Its good to see all the names in the open and discuss them.

3.   Have a TOP 10 I know its tempting to have 20 faves, but try and start with 10 and go from there. Our 4th child has three names, so keep 3 if you want!

4. Consider the syllables AND meaning. This child will have to live with this name, maybe forever, so make it easy to say with a positive meaning.

ANNND since we are still waiting on baby #5, I cannot divulge the name, I can however tell you I followed the above steps and you will have to stay tuned!

Speaking of waiting for baby . . . I’m loving this collagen powder that I swear is helping my nails and hair. Also, this ice roller (only $12!) is helping me fake a full night of sleep, this overnight reset oil-in serum, is warding off the wrinkles, and when bored, make PUMPKIN BREAD!

I recently did a shoot for UK Magazine GATE Magazine UK wearing Tatiana Karelina hair extensions. It was so fun to transform a look with this gorgeous braided hair! Honestly, I was sad when it came off. I loved wearing this lace bell sleeve top with the braid and flared jeans. Speaking of cute top, I’m sharing some on extra 20% off below, perfect for your mom, sisters and friends. Happy Thursday!

You know those times when you find a cute top and you create the outfit around it? Well, I found it. I created this comfy outfit around this gorgeous ruffle detail, easy flats, jeans, and a cute small bag. Simple is best. When asked can I wear lace into fall, I always answer yes! It’s full of drama and detail that look awesome paired with masculine faux leather leggings, leather jacket, OTK boots, and of course skinny jeans. Basically, do not store the lace for next summer, you’d be surprised how cute it will look for fall.

Lace dresses are such show stoppers in themselves you hardly need to stress over accessorizing them. Just add a cool hat, sunglasses and a colorful sandal. I chose blush sandal heels here but you can give them a sporty look with sneakers.

To those who know me, know I’m very minimal when it comes to beauty and skincare. However, using great products is no exception. This is not sponsored, just an informative post for those who asked what I use on my face and skin. All of which are stashed in my lovely Maxwell Scott toiletry bag (Reid secretly wants one too). I have some product that didn’t make it into the picture, but linked below.

What’s in my Maxwell Scott Toiletry Bag?

R+Co shine + texture spray (who doesn’t need radiance, shine and sea kale to wake up tired hair?) :: L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil (don’t you love the name? It smells amazing and I’m crediting my glow to this baby) :: L’Occitane shea butter hand lotion (quenches thirsty skin and the result is baby skin soft):: Le Labo parfum musty and clean :: Elizabeth Dehn Vitamin C Brightening Facial Serum  vitamin C to combat stress and leave skin glowing and even-toned.

Not pictured but honorable mention: Milo skin body brush for better circulation, NuFace facial toning device (like an at home facial) :: MUSQ face and body exfoliant (gets rid of old skin, hello new skin!) I linked a similar below :: SUNDAL RILEY TIDAL brightening enzyme water cream (no scent and refreshing). And I’m using this mask tonight 😉

While Reid and I both complain how long my cleansing routine takes at night, I see a difference. Sounds cheesy, but when I feel great, I’m a better wife and mother. I used to think I was a 4 product no-nonsense girl until I left some of the above products at home during our road trip this summer. I was scrambling for another exfoliant and moisturizer. I quickly realized that trial size doesn’t work for a two- week vacation. Noted. Now, its your turn, what are your tips and tricks from ACV to hemorrhoid creme? I’m all ears? Comment below.

This dress embodies two things I love in dresses, a blush color and choker neck tie. Also, I picked up this lace kimono for Mexico, because it is super versatile: think tanks, jeans and dresses, but it can also go over swimsuits! See how I styled a blush trench here. Happy Monday!

Coming from Chicago, I’ve always loved a versatile suede jacket and this one is no exception. I love it paired with a lace romper and pumps. (These flats from Nordstrom also work if you can’t walk in heels all day). Thankfully, if in between sizes, Nordstrom’s customer service is unparalleled, and returns are swift and easy. I just wish Southern California gave me more reasons to wear all my favorite jackets.

Thank you Nordstrom for partnering on this post.

There’s nothing like double flare for a dramatic entrance into the weekend. Don’t forget the hat (for bad hair days) and just the right sized weekender. All that’s missing is an Airbnb in San Fran and a trench coat if it rains. The countdown has begun.

There are few things I love better than a dainty lace top and fluted sleeves. Here I paired it with black jeans to contrast the lace detail. I have a feeling you will be seeing more of this top. Happy almost weekend – I’m excited to be packing for our trip to Chicago!
