All I want for Mother’s day…

Posted on April 28th, by Melanie

It is my first official Mother’s Day and I feel like it’s kind of a big deal! We carry these babies for 9 months, go through grueling labor and then we are the ones up late at night when the baby is crying! We deserve a special day, so I have certainly put some thought into what I would like to do to celebrate.

It would be amazing to spend a day in bed with Mimosas, Gossip Girl reruns and naps in between. But, since that probably isn’t going to happen I would gladly accept any of the gifts listed below.

My husband does a wonderful job of picking out jewelry. One Christmas he gave me the most fabulous pair of earrings. They were gold circles with tiny gold chains linked in between and from them hung a pink feather. So unique and beautiful and I just loved them. Unfortunately, I have an affinity for losing just ONE earring.

My current obsessions…

Posted on April 22nd, by Melanie

I have many loves of my life…my husband, my baby, and of course clothes and makeup! Here are a few things that are currently getting my motor running!

I am a huge lipgloss fan, and typically I am a Chanel girl. But, I was ready to try something new and I am glad that I did, because I came across Lancome’s fabulous product!!! It is Lancome’s Color Fever Plumper. The thing I love about it is the texture (smooth and not too sticky) and it’s light enough to put over your favorite lipstick if you want to. It gives you a slight plumping/tingly sensation, but not like some of the other plumpers out there. The applicator is a flat sort of fan shape that makes it easy to apply and it doesn’t go on clumpy. My favorite color is called “puckered” It is a super light pink with lots of sparkle.

Oh Boy!!!!!

Posted on April 15th, by Melanie

As a mother of a baby boy, I am constantly in search for cute things to dress my little guy in. I go to Target (my home away from home) hoping to find some inexpensive cute things. I always find things for myself there, so I WANT to be able to find things for my baby as well! I enviously meander through the girls department. SO many cute things! Darling leggings with little tops to match, the cutest sun dresses, and a gazillion little tops and shorts. Then I get to the boys “corner”, which is literally about 4 racks compared to the 50 in girls. I sheepishly pick up the awful onesies with cheesy sayings, and I flip through the “Pooh and Friends” rack-which is really only appropriate for a JC Penney Photo Shoot. It’s truly depressing…

This forces me to do some major research both online and in-stores. I have a few go-to’s where I know I will always find cute things.
