Weekend Photo Diary: Getting Ready for "School"


Pay no attention to the chaos happening behind me.  Lucas was kindly cleaning my vanity using my MAC brushes and Mia was barking at him to jump in the bed with her.  Yes, this is my fancy life.  This weekend was an errands full kinda days trying to get everything in order for Lucas' first day of "school" today.  WAHHHHHHHHH!  I'm a mess and I cannot even lie.  Ugh.  That boy has made me such a mush so I hope he loves it and doesn't think I abandoned him.  Here's to hoping for a great week...

Long Button Down


Lately, I have been allllll about tunics and oversized shirts.  I like to dress them up, dress them down, and basically live in them.  At least a couple days a week, I do have to dress more conservatively due to meetings, hearings, etc. so I love this J.Crew Endless shirt.  I normally wouldn't post a side-view shot because, umm hello, but I wanted to show how long it is.  It's like a button up tunic which is the best of both worlds for me.  Anything I can do to still look professional and be comfortable at the same time is right up my alley.

Because It's Easy


I just love how easy the dress + cardigan formula is.  Whenever I'm running late, a dress and a cardigan is my go to even if it's kind of boring.  I try to throw in a necklace or some sort of accessory to make things interesting.  Even if it gets tangled like mine clearly is in these photos, I think accessories are great completer pieces.

Favorite Eye Shadow Palettes


I just love eyeshadow palettes.  I, embarrassingly, have more palettes but the ones above are my favorite.  I switch it up and sometimes just use one palette a day or use different colors from others to create one eye look.  I definitely stick to neutral palettes since because of what I do for a living but I love putting eyeshadow on.  I'm not much of a lipstick girl so eyeshadows are my thing.

Custom MAC palette: I picked my own shades for this palette and, for me, it's the perfect neutral palette.  I have another MAC palette that I made but that one has all bright and colorful shadows that I rarely use, honestly.  But this one gets used almost daily.  The colors in mine are: Blanc Type, Brule, Mylar, Naked Lunch, All That Glitters, Dazzlelight, Yogurt, Kid, Cork, Satin Taupe, Swiss Chocolate, Espresso, Patina, Mulch, and Woodwinked.

Urban Decay Naked palette:  Aww, my beloved Naked palette.  I also have the second one but the original gets used a lot more.  I mainly use the colors Buck and Naked but I've pretty much used all colors at some point.  I gravitate towards brown colors which is why this one of the series is my favorite.

Urban Decay Basics palette:  This is a great everyday use palette and I almost always bring this with me when I travel since it's neutral but can be built up to be dramatic.  

Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette: I LOVE THIS FLIPPING PALETTE!  I DO!  And I don't just love it because it smells like chocolate but it doesn't hurt.  I seriously love this palette so much and use the darkest color to line my lids every day.  This is the perfect perfect work and everyday palette but it also has bright colors if that meets your fancy.  Seriously, you need this palette in your life.  If I only could have two palettes, it would be this one and the Urban Decay Basics palette.

Stila Mind Palette: I received this palette as a gift and love the matte colors.  The entire palette is matte which I like to wear during the day.

Bareminerals palette:  The colors and price point sold me on this one.  I was drawn to the coral color and the others match it perfectly.

Wet n Wild palette:  Don't knock this until you try it!  I think I paid like $3.00 for this and it was worth it!  I also bought Comfort Zone and I am seriously impressed.  I even noted MAC dupes with this.  I highly recommend!

Neutral Palette


This is my version of camouflage.  Almost everything blends in with my skin tone so it was quite the invisible cloak kinda day.  I can't say I hate it though.  I think I may try more neutral monochromatic looks this week to break it up from my all black all the time.  This was clearly something I wore to work and not something I would wear at home...with a two year old.  #whyareboysmessy

Weekend Photo Diary: MOMMAS I NEED YOUR HELP!


It was a perfect Florida Saturday with the heat at a tolerant level and just the right wind, so we headed out to Magic Kingdom.  We had a great time as always.  The crowd level was low since Florida schools are back in session so we let Lucas run around and get his energy out.  He just tall enough to ride the roller coasters, but he's going to have to wait awhile until I feel he's old enough for to ride them.  As always, we dressed in Disney shirts which we never did pre-Lucas but I think it's more fun to do with him since he knows the characters and thinks it's hilarious when he recognizes a character on our shirts.  His favorite character has always been Donald or DUCK so, of course, we did our best to find Donald and Daisy shirts.

We are trying to get a lot of playtime with him because, and here is where the title of my post comes from, Lucas is starting "school" in a week.  It's pre pre pre school and it's only three days a week for a couple of hours but I am a nervous wreck, to put it lightly.  Honestly, I'm a hot mess.  It's no secret around these parts that I have loads of working mom guilt.  I know he's going to love school but I can't help but feel like I wish I was the one caring for him.  Lucas is very social, outgoing, and loves playing with other kids.  BUT, he's a typical only child and is use to being the center of everyone's universe.  So I wonder if he'll be alone and sad or if he'll be scared because he won't recognize us.  Ugh.  I'm having a really hard time with this even though I know, I know he's going to love it and thrive.  Any advice out there?? 





Both Saturday at Disney and Sunday running errands, I wore Kushyfoot socks sent to me by the company to try out.  I have to say, I'm a fan.  I don't like socks sticking out of my shoes nor my heel rubbing against the shoe and I really liked the way they felt.  I was sent other socks as well that I'll be trying out and will let you know how I like them.
