How I Spent My... Weekend

Outfit Dress: Zara [on sale in stores] | Shoes: Christian Louboutin | Necklace: Jennifer Meyer 

This past weekend I got to celebrate baby boy a second time with some of my best friends at a tea party shower at The Langham [where we got married], it was such a treat and so much fun to spend time a relaxing afternoon together! Currently 35 1/2 weeks pregnant and tomorrow I turn 29 [eek last year before the big 3-0!] - can't believe our little guy will be here in a month or less! XOXO

Beauty: Recent Buys

Happy Monday! I ran out of pretty much all of my beauty products this past month [seems like it always happens all at once!] and picked up these replacements, some old + some new - reviews below! Don't forgot to browse the Nordstrom Anniversary sale if you haven't already, see all my picks from Friday's post here. XOXO

Tom Ford Eye Quad in Nude Dip: This is my first time trying his eyeshadow but I've read many rave reviews for the consistency and pigmentation of this quads. I picked this palette because it looked easy to wear but was also tempted by the Cocoa Mirage colors.

Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo + Conditioner: I love the Oribe Texturizing Spray and these were recommended after a recent haircut. I'm excited to try them out, they both smell amazing!

Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo: I've bought this dry shampoo multiple times - it is great at making blow outs last and adds a lot of volume. I also use it in place of hairspray when I curl my hair.

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask: This has an interesting jelly like consistency but was I was really impressed with the results from the sample I had - I've been loving all the products I've bought from her line so far.

Tom Ford Lip Shine in Nubile: Unfortunately this ended up being a little browner than I would have liked but I think it would love great on someone with a tan or darker hair. Hoping with a lip gloss on top I can make it work!

Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence: This spray is super refreshing and has a great scent, I also love that it's full of antioxidants and is all natural. I use it after washing my face before putting on sunscreen and serums for the day and before my lotion at night time.

Baby: Baby Gear Picks

As follow up to my Baby: Diaper Bag Alternatives + Baby: Diaper Bag Essentials posts, here are a few of my favorite baby gear picks that I either used with Hudson or plan to use with Baby Boy #2 in just a few weeks! We really loved our Bugaboo Bee Stroller the first time around so we decided to go with their Donkey Double Stroller so that both boys would have a place to sit - I love that it can be used in single mode as well [and has a nice storage basket to attach when doing so]. I always rave about Freshly Picked Moccasins - they were especially great for when Hudson was learning how to walk because of their soft soles. We are also big fans of Maxi-Cosi for car seats - we have used both the infant and convertible seats and love their safety features. Feel free to share any of you must have essentials in the comments, I'd love to hear your favorites! XOXO

How I Spent My... 4th Of July Weekend

Hudson's Swim Outfit: Janie & Jack; The Dude Hat: Crew Cuts | Hudson's Second Outfit: Janie & Jack; Shoes: Vans | Pom Pom Beach Tote: Mar Y Sol

We took our annual Labor Day Santa Barbara trip a little early this year because of baby boy's impending arrival and celebrated 4th of July up at Bacara this past Friday through Sunday. Hudson had a blast walking around the property, looking at the boats + ocean and especially loved playing in their pool and sand area! We also got left the hotel twice for some yummy treats at Freebird's in Isla Vista and McConnell's Ice Cream & Yogurt Shop on Mission. So nice to get away and make some memories as a family of three before our new addition makes his debut! Hope you had a great 4th! XOXO
