This is the cutest and easiest holiday to create a soft-pink look! The stores are full of decorative items that make it super easy to put this piece together. For me, the fluffy runner and burlap bunny ears from Pier 1 bring this table together. Check-out the full details of this look over on Home Decor. 

Elegant & Classic Easter Sunday Outfit

I was very excited to put together this outfit for the blog reveal. I am wearing a white skirt by Rachel Parcell RP Collection and a Catherine Catherine Malandrino Bell Sleeve Pastel Top with Valentino Dupes by Jessica Simpson. And of course, my favorite watch from Kate Spade because it says "Fashionably Late". Yes, I am typically the girl that is always running late. I like to think it is because I'm always "fashionably late", lol, but it is usually because I'm chasing little Liam down to get him ready as well. 

The Rachel Parcell Skirt is sold out. I know, what a bummer. I was super stoked to purchase it for the reveal and link it for you all, but I have provided below an alternative from her RP collection as well as White Dupe version by Vince.

These Easter carrots are super adorable and bring out such cuteness in the Easter tablescape. They are on-sale for just under $4!!! Hurry to Pier 1 and grab a few items. This is the time to shop, right before the holiday is over. These will never be out dated and can be reused in next years decor! P.S. I wish this was an paid ad, but its not. i just love their products that much.

This is the time to either try new products for a ridiculous low prices or restock on your all time favorites. For those that have been asking about my skincare, I love-love La Mer and Elemis. Both are sooooo affordable only during the Nordstrom Sale. I do not purchase these items outside of this sale. Trust me when I say I do like to live life affordably lol! Also, check out the latest blog post for full details about the Nordstrom Sale & my favorite finds right now.

Date Night Make-Up Essentials

Getting ready now a days has to be quick for me. My 3 year old toddler is very impatient when he sees us getting ready...so these are my quick essentials that always make me feel all dolled up! 

The rule of 3 is everything! Trust me. 

- Red lip or Pink (depends on outfit) I have very dry lips so these two lipsticks are very hydrating for me. 

- Mascara - My favorite is Better than Sex by Tarte. Not only is the name funny, but the brush is just perfect. And I love that Tarte products are very natural and not tested on animals. 

- Blush and Highlight- The final touch! 

Walla! You are all done for a quick refreshed look. If you do have uneven skin like me, a little quick foundation or BB cream is always helpful.

One can never go wrong with denim for a 4th of July BBQ! This particular dress is sold-out, but I've shared the link in case it becomes available soon and some similar ones that I would wear. Also, these sandals are one my most comfortable and can dress down or up any outfit. 

Cozy Weekend in Bed!

Fun fact...the bed's name on Wayfair is my husband's name...MARLON! It was a match meant to be. That was my first time purchasing furniture from Wayfair and I must say the quality is amazing. We are really happy with the build of the bed and nightstands. The texture and royal blue is beautiful in person.

Toddler Reading Station

Every little munchkin needs a reading and craft table in their room. I am supporter and encourage that these are essential items in every play room. Liam loves reading time and through lots of practice...he can identify letters, numbers, colors and shapes in English and Spanish with 3 years of age. He doesn't always deliver upon request, but a bribe always works! LOL 

I've tagged a few items from Pottery Barn and Target. Both are essentially in the same price range, but....Pottery Barn currently has a sale that beats Target. I know right...how amazing is that. Shop the images below!

My favorite watch of all time is from Kate Spade! Their look can easily be dressed down or up! I just love them. But, most importantly, that it is about TIME that Friday is here. I am in much need for a weekend to catch up on rest. 

Spring Comfort

This yellow gingham dress is everything! It is super soft and comfortable. It is sold in maternity sizes, petite, tall and regular. I am wearing a large regular for reference. The sandals are my go-to option for two reasons, comfort and style. They go with just about anything. And lets talk about bargain shopping; I don't know about you, but I can't afford every expensive item out there, so I found the perfect dupe for the Gaia purse from amazon. Hope you like these essential wardrobe items! Click on the links to purchase.

I feel so comfortable in dresses and find them to be super flattering. 

I recently discovered Vici Dolls Collection and I am in love! The prices and quality of the products is amazing. 

Also, don't forget the essential wedge for Spring and Summer. These are super comfortable and the tan color goes with just about anything. 

They are on sale right now...which is hard to come by for Charles David shoes.

Formal Living Room Spring Look

There are several classic pieces that bring together a living space. Once you have those selected, the decorative items and pillows bring the room together and express each season or holiday. For me, a classic grey couch and sleek modern table set the neutral tone that allows me to easily change the color theme in the room. However, I must admit that I am always a sucker for BLUSH! 

There are two pieces that are sold out. The couch and painting. I did link an alternative that I would definately purchase if I was recreating the room.

There are two things I always have in my purse, lipstick and perfume. When I reapply both, I feel refreshed! Adding a quick layer of blush lipstick also makes you appear put together! YSL lipsticks are super creamy and long lasting.
