I’m baaaaaack! I’m so excited to be recovered from maternity leave and able to be with all of you lovely readers. I can’t wait to share more of Lily girl (y’all are going to love her!), and it feels so good to be back with my other face. Life is better with your beautiful sister and brunch, right?

Mom life is totally making me embrace the whole athleisure trend, and I’m dragging Kailey down to the dark side with me. I made a promise to myself that I was not going to be a granola mom, but, goodness gracious, it’s a lot of work getting yourself ready with a 2 month old who just really wants to cuddle all day. Also, it’s fitting in perfectly with me and Kailey’s new love for hot yoga. After having my C-section, getting back into a fitness routine was a little more painful than I had expected, and hot yoga has been the perfect ease back into getting my pre-prego bod back (not to say that I’m not totally embracing the amazing thing my body did for 9 months). Our favorite studio is Black Swan Yoga in the Heights, and if you’re a fellow Houstonian who treadmills aren’t your thing either, you should definitely give it a try. They have amazing instructors (Angie is our girl!) who will kick your ass (in a very zen way) and make you feel completely amazing after your class.
Right now, we are L-O-V-I-N-G Lululemon’s workout gear. The price is totally worth it as the quality is aaahhhhmazing! Kay is wearing Wunder Under Pant (Hi-Rise) Laser Cut, and the cut outs are so fun and sassy. The fun thing about Lululemon is that their workout wear is far from boring and really make you feel good in what you’re wearing. I’m wearing All The Right Places leggings, and they are a life savor! The high waist panel helps holds everything in which is really important in my surgery recovery…plus they’re real cute! Our sweatshirts are from Nordstrom, and they are so fun and sassy! My Nikes are currently unavailable, but I linked a the same style but in a different color.

Again, I’m so happy to be active on the blog! I’ve missed this community so much, and I can’t wait to unveil all of the fun things Kailey and I have been creating for y’all! Happy Tuesday!

There’s not many things in life that make me more happy than being in bed before 8:30, a glass of wine, a good movie, and a face mask. I am one happy girl because I did just that last night! My current favorites this week are inspired by resort/vacation wear and a little home accents!

Faux Leather Clutch

Love this little bag that’s under $49 and I can’t wait to take it to NYFW with me! My sweet friend Dede from Dressup Buttercup has it and it seriously goes with everything she wears!

Top Shop Ruffle Off The Shoulder One Piece

Lately I’ve been in vacation mode and I’m trying to talk all my girlfriends into going somewhere tropical with me! I’ve been on the look out for a one piece that I could be shorts over and it still look like an outfit! This one piece definitely meets that criteria!

Pom Pom Panama Hat

Pom Poms are here to stay this spring! They were all the rage in 2016 and I’m so happy the trend god’s aren’t tired of them yet! Like I just said, I’m in need of sunshine and the ocean. I burn extremely easily so I always make sure I have a hat to cover my face when I know I’ll be in the sun for a long period of time. No one likes sun damage!

Diptique ‘Mimosa’ Scented Candle

The last time I was in NY, I bought this candle and I have made it last for almost nine months! It finally burned out {so sad} so I stocked up a few days ago. It makes your house smell like oranges and champagne and who doesn’t like that?!

‘Cuddle Heart’ Faux Fur Pillow

For every holiday I like to decorate my bed with accent pillows! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and this fury thing is in my shopping cart!

Kate Spade Passport Holder

I have several international trips planned this year and I thought what better way to celebrate that than to get my passport a pretty pink jacket!

Swiss Dot Blouse

I have been OBSESSED with mustard lately! I always thought it wasn’t my color because of how pale I am but I have changed my mind! I wore a mustard blouse to an event the other night and I received so many compliments; therefore I am only buying mustard blouses from this point on! Kidding, but I really would! 🙂 Can’t wait for this beauty to come in! I’ll be wearing it with white skinnies and a hot pink lip!

FREE PEOPLE FROCK | STEVE MADDEN OVER THE KNEE BOOTS | TORY BURCH PURSE | DAVID YURMAN BANGLE | DAVID YURMAN RING

Please tell me you’ve seen La La Land?! I feel like an absolute crazy driving around Houston with my windows down BLASTING “City of Stars” LOL! It’s just so good that I listen to the soundtrack anytime I’m in the car! Our family has always loved musicals and we have a long line of dancers so I like to think that’s in our blood. Ryan Gosling can seriously do no wrong and Emma Stone is just magical. I want them to be together so bad in real life. #emotionallyinvested If you’re wanting to see a “feel good” movie, I highly recommend it!

Last night I attended a private bloggers event at Elaine Turner with some of my favorite girls! It was so fun to see the new pieces she has in store for spring and I loved her concept of the collection. She was an inspired by havana lifestyle, cork and raffia, and bright colors like fushchia and parrot green — now I want to go on vacation!

I’ve had a thing lately for mumu style dresses! Anything clingy or tight seriously drives me bonkers so this Free People dress has been worn about 3 times this week. Each day I hope I don’t run into someone from the day before lol! “Lizzie McGuire, you are an outfit repeater!” It’s on sale and comes in several colors! I was really drawn to the bright coral because I’ve been living neutrals and I needed a pop of color in my life!

I hope you’re having a wonderful Thursday!

Hi, loves! Had a really great weekend with sweet friends and ended the night at hot yoga! Y’all…I found my calling in life! I LOVE hot yoga. As granola as it sounds, it truly centers me and makes me feel stronger and more confident. Plus you’re burning a TON of calories and sweating in places you didn’t know you could sweat. #yum LOL! I’ve been going to classes pretty religiously for the past couple of weeks, making it a point to go as much as possible. I can honestly say it’s better than any therapy I’ve been to. I encourage you to find a muse or a hobby that sets your mind on refresh, it’s an amazing and rewarding feeling!

As I’m getting my youtube channel started, I wanted to give y’all a list of make up products I love! I did a “baking” post back in October and if you click hereit’ll take you right to it! That post has descriptions on everything and why they are on my must- have list!

P.S. I’ve been loving this foundation lately! It’s a full coverage foundation, long-lasting, and has worked really well with my combination skin {oily in the t-zone and dry everywhere else}. Got an ugly break out, no worries. This foundation will make your skin look like a baby.

Have a fantastic week! Choose happiness!

Happy Friday, loves! I hope you had a wonderful week and have an even better weekend planned ahead! It rained just about everyday here in Houston but the sun is out and that puts a big smile on my face! Headed to hot yoga here in a bit and then Hailey and I are having a little shopping day! The best way to spend a Friday! I missed last week’s Current Favorites post, had a crazy week as I’m sure most of you noticed! So, I pinky I won’t miss another as my life is back in order! 🙂

Jenn Thatcher Painting

I bought my first piece of art last week from Jenn Thatcher! She’s an artist out of Dallas and I’ve loved her work ever since I started to follow Katey McFarlan of Chronicles of Frivolity! She has a beautiful eye for color, I’m drawn to her softness and feminine syle. I’ll be posting what I bought on Instagram next week! It’s so gorgeous!

Tom Ford Lipstick in Blush Nude

This has been my favorite nude lipstick for the past year! I never leave the house without it! It’s an absolute perfect nude lipstick that won’t was you out if you are fair!

Kate Spade Liquid Glitter Phone Case

My girlfriend Candice of Lots of Lovely has the cutest phone case from Kate Spade! I can never decide on a phone case {because it’s such a hard decision} and I am obsessed with the liquid glitter on this one! I have a feeling this is going to be one more distraction of mine! 

Thompson Ferrier Pineapple Candle

I have a thing for pretty candles, I almost don’t even care what they smell like! I’m finishing up the last touches to my apartment and I feel like this will go well with all of my metallic metals that I have going on!

Sole Society Mason Travel Duffel

I have several trips coming up and I never go anywhere without this bag. I love that I can separate my shoes in the bottom compartment and it’s a perfect carry-on size! It comes in camel, black, and indigo so you can match it to your pre-existing luggage! 

Bauble Bar Tassel Earrings

How fun are these earrings?! I’m planning out my outfits for NYFW, I’m lacking color in a major way because just about everything is black! I just ordered these to add a little “party” to my black coat and OTK boots! I’ve also had a thing for rose gold so these fit the bill!

Hunter Original Gloss Rain Boots

It’s been flooding all through Houston this week so I’ve been living in my Hunters. I remember being little and absolutely hating rain boots. They used to not be this cute! If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a pair, it’s a great splurge that you’ll get a ton of use out of it. It’s one of those things that you wish you had when you need it. 

Funnel Neck Knit Cape

I can’t wait to wear this at NYFW! It’s my first cape purchase and it’ll be a perfect layering piece. It also comes in several colors, but I decided on the ivory!

Rifle Paper Co. Planner

If I don’t write it down, I don’t remember it! A new planner was a must for 2017 and I always go for a gorgeous floral print from Rifle Paper Co.. I really like how there’s weekly and monthly sections so I can write descriptions and little notes.
