Can you believe all of these are under $50?! I seriously want them all for my wardrobe! I do have black OTK boots BUT they were $100 from Steve Madden… please don’t tell my hubby! Lol. Those ( #3) are only $45. So awesome. What’s great about all of these pieces is that you can wear each one in so many different looks.

TGIF! Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

Seriously Nordstrom has THEE BEST sales! Am I right?! Here are 13 items I literally just “added to cart” LOL. Any one else just keep adding to the cart then when you check out, you’re like… ok, which ones do I need to delete? Haha. I got the Topshop jeans earlier today when I went to the mall. Such a steal!

Christmas 2016 Family Pictures

Alright guys, here are our family Christmas pictures this year! Even though plans didn’t go through of going to a nice location, not having our doggies in the pictures, and ending up having to use a tripod right outside our condo… I felt incredibly blessed to have Landon here with us this holiday season. Last year, he was in my belly!

For Christmas Eve, we went to my parents’ house in Temecula. My family has always celebrated Christmas Eve. At midnight (when it’s officially Christmas), I pass out all the gifts (been doing this since I was 5 years old) then we open them all up together. On Christmas Day, we came back to San Diego to spend time with my hubby’s side of the family. We did Secret Santa, ate all day and watched home videos. I am STILL having food coma from this weekend’s festivities, haha!

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!! Hope you have a wonderful last week of 2016 🙂

P.S. Our Christmas PJs were from Target!

When it comes to crossbody bags, I like to have a lot of options to go with different outfits so I try to purchase inexpensive ones… keyword: TRY. Lol. The place I can always rely on for affordable, quality things is Target. Duh. I’ve rounded up 7 bags that caught my eye! If you still have some Christmas presents to buy… these are perfect 🙂

Happy Thursday!

Blooming Bath Lotus

mq_bloomingbath1mq_bloomingbath2

One of the many things that I look forward to as a mom is bath time in the evenings. Both Scarlett and Landon enjoy taking baths and I love spending that quality time with them  🙂 Plus I just love snuggling with them after. Fellow mamas, you know you like that “fresh out of the bath” smell right?! It’s the best.

I was lucky enough to be sent a Blooming Bath Lotus and I absolutely love it… and as you can see in the pictures, Landon does too! I just wish I discovered this product sooner. It’s made for sinks but none of the sinks in my condo are big enough to hold my growing 6-month-old so I put it in his 4moms bath tub. It just made his whole bath time experience more comfortable because that lotus is just SO incredibly soft! The four wide petals make it easy to fit into any space.

Scarlett even got to use it during her bath too! She obviously doesn’t like to be contained in a small space anymore so a little baby tub is useless. I used the Blooming Bath Lotus as a tub seat for her and she was shocked at first because she wasn’t used to sitting on something so soft in the tub lol. I literally had to bribe her with a Trolls toy to get her out haha.

Mamas, you guys have to check this out for your little one(s)! They even make the perfect gift. Thanks for stopping by!

Ipsy “December 2016 Glam Bag” Review

mq_ipsydec6What’s in the December 2016 “Carpe p.m.” Bag?

  1. NYX Professional Makeup Prismatic Shadow in “Jaded”
  2. REN Clean Skincare Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask
  3. CLEARISTA Retexturizing Gel
  4. Ciate London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Pin Up”
  5. tarte cosmetics deluxe maracuja oil

Ok guys, before I start the review I just want to let you know that I’m SO happy about this month’s bag… the actual bag! It’s simple and girly. Love!

mq_ipsydec2NYX Professional Makeup Prismatic Shadow in “Jaded”

You know I love me some NYX buuuut this is just not my type of eyeshadow color. I was bummed to see that Ipsy gave out 3 other colors and I wish I got any of the other 3. If I were just reviewing the actual eyeshadow, minus the color, it’s awesome! It’s super pigmented and glides on smoothly. I’ll have to get the other colors!

mq_ipsydec5REN Clean Skincare Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

This product made my skin feel smoother and firmer after a single use. I typically like masks that have exfoliation beads but the gel was a nice change. Thank goodness I don’t have sensitive skin because it does say not to use if you have sensitive skin.

mq_ipsydec4CLEARISTA Retexturizing Gel

First of all, this company is from San Diego so I was so excited to try something that was made locally! This is a great scrub and it did feel like all my dead skin cells were scrubbed off after using it. Pretty awesome.

mq_ipsydec3Ciate London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Pin Up”

Seriously you can never have too many liquid lipsticks! I am always a happy camper when I get one in my glam bags. This one is wonderful! It’s so creamy and goes on perfectly. I’ve received other products from this brand before which I loved so I kind of expected that I would become a fan of their liquid lipstick. They nailed it with this color too!

mq_ipsydec1tarte cosmetics deluxe maracuja oil

I’m sure everyone has heard of the brand tarte before so I was thrilled to get a product from them this month! Of course, the packaging is super cute right? Any way, at first I thought this was oil for your hair but I read the box and it’s actually for your face. Say what?! I’ve never used oil on my face, ever. I mean I would just assume that it would make your face… oily. I’ve always been skeptical so I was excited to try this. It was so light and made my face feel super hydrated which is much needed during Winter season. I’m obsessed.

I loved this month’s bag! My favorite product? Well, it’s tie between the face oil and the liquid lipstick! If you want to try Ipsy out, click here🙂
