a face fit for warmer weather...

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 

In the spring and summer I tend to not want to cake on the makeup like the winter. It is fun to do some things a little different for each season - just to keep things fresh...
 Here are a few of my favorite products to use for dewy simple coverage  - for a simple, not over-done look. 

When the weather is warm I really want very little coverage with my foundation. That is why I tend to stick to an easy bb cream with a great SPF or  I use my daily moisturizer with a dot of heavier duty foundation to give it a more sheer, light coverage look. 

I use this under my eyes and right on the sides of my nose to cover up any imperfections. Just a little goes a long way.

I love my "Warmth" by bareMinerals as my bronzer. I use this right below my cheek bones, and around the edge of my face. Make sure it is blended in well. 
Next, I add a little blush right on my cheeks, and follow with an illuminator above my cheekbones, down the center of my nose and right above my top lip.  I love HighBeam by benefit because it is so sheer - and it also can go on your eyelids for a little coverage and glow.

Thats it! I would just finish up with a little mascara and you are ready for the day! Make sure to wear your sunscreen when you are out in the sun, but other than that you are good-to-go.

What are your favorite go-to face products for the spring and summer?



Back to Basics...

Dress: Victoria's Secret, Jacket: JCrew (Old, Similar, ), Shoes: Target, Bag: ShoeDazzle (Old), Earings: Dolma Pearls

You know who has some amazing clothes at really good prices and I never seem think about them except for underwear? Victoria's Secret! I know - crazy, right?! But, I know I won't be forgetting about them from now on. 

I received a gift card for them recently - and being pregnant - I didn't think think spending a ton of money on lingerie was a great idea since I wouldn't be able to wear it for very long. So, I started looking at their clothes to see if anything would work with my ever growing baby bump! And lo and behold, I found quite a few things that would work and are oh, so cute!

The quality of their clothes are great, and definitely doesn't look or feel cheap. This black dress is from there (it comes in a ton of different colors), and I can't wait to show you some of the other things I have bought from them to wear during the pregnancy :)



Leather and Lace...

Top: Anthropologie, Skirt and Necklace: Blush Boutique, Shoes: JCrew (Old, Similar)

Finally, beautiful weather again! YAY! Is it just me - or does everyone's mood totally depend on the weather?  I know mine does. When the sun is shinning and its warm, I just can't help but smile. 

Since it was getting up to 75 degrees I thought I would pull out my white a week before Easter to get in the mood. I love how fresh and crisp a white skirt can be. And the leather trim on this skirt gives it just the right amount of edge to go along with the sweetness of the lace. So glad that for now, this skirt still fits!



P.S.  It's like we hit the 4 month mark and the bump decided to grace us with its appearance - I am excited to see it grow over the next few months!
