Happy Friday Y'all!! I am so excited for the long weekend, my family is here plus one of Matt's best friends is staying with us this weekend. It will be a busy weekend but a fun one!! So for the past week I have been sick, I finally went to the doctor Tuesday and was diagnosed with bronchitis, a sinus infection + an asthma flare up. Anyone who knows me well, knows I don't go to the doctor unless I am bad off, I hate medicine but in this case thank goodness for modern medicine I am finally feeling better and on the road to recovery!! Being sick and taking care of two little kids is hard!
While I was sick, I decided I needed some homemade muffins to feel better. I made these Zucchini Carrot and Coconut Muffins- recipe HERE. I forgot how good these babies were!
I have three new make-up items to share I am loving.
Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner- I am a big fan of pencil eyeliners. This one works great, goes on well and even.
Chanel Eyeshadow- this is my first Chanel eyeshadow and I have to say I love it. You can wear it light during the day or do a great smokey eye at night. I have the sable color combo.
Burts Bees Deep Pore Scrub- this stuff is amazing for exfoliating. I use it with my clarisonic in the shower about every other day.
I am a huge fan of May books. I love to use them for my to-do lists. I usually keep one at home beside my desk and one in my purse. Lately Sterling has gotten really into drawing too so I ordered him his own book for doodles back when they had the 40% off sale. He keeps it on his night table and draws before bed, it is so cute.
If you have not signed up for it yet, you must sign up for the Skimm. It is a great daily newsletter that is emailed to you every morning and it includes a brief version of all the latest news around the world. I just love it, it makes me feel updated on all the current events and I don't have to read a huge long article. Sign up Here.
I have been loving my JCrew laser cut shirt I blogged about last week. I wore it twice this week. Use code WEEKEND to get 40% off. It runs large order down a size and several of you asked if it was cropped, and it is not cropped at all, I am almost 5'10 and the length is fine. It comes to $35 with the discount!
and The House of Harlow Sunburst Necklace is one of my favorites, it goes with everything. Right now it is on major sale (50% off in an olive snakeskin color) here
Right now at Nordstrom a lot of their House of Harlow jewelry is 50% off. I love this sharks tooth necklace. It was $72, down to $35- such a great price. You could wear it alone or layer it with a longer pendant necklace.
Sterling went to his first soccer practice this week and he did so well. I was a proud Mama. He knew no one on his team which is hard for him sometimes but he got out there and played really well
I recently ordered this book, The Glow. It is filled with such inspiring stories from moms about childbirth and after. I have really enjoyed reading. This would make a great gift for an expectant Mom.
Frances is not yet crawling but has started to get pretty mobile. I thought of this genius idea to contain her while we had happy hour outside. She loved being in the laundry bin and thought it was so funny.
We enjoyed a new tequila (to us) that we loved. Muy Bueno!
Milk and Honey Luxuries was so sweet to send us this adorable spoon. Sterling and I say this everyday to each other so the spoon was very fitting. I am now kind of obsessed with her shop and adorable spoons. Shop her Etsy site HERE.
And speaking of cereal that is the Publix version of Captain Crunch or Monkey cereal as Sterling calls it and it is good for like half the price!
I took Sterling and Frances plant shopping with me. If you have kids Hyams Garden Store is such a great activity. They love riding on the carts and feeding the koi fish. Then I get to browse their gorgeous garden selection.
I hope everyone has a fantastic Labor Day Weekend!!
