Outfit: Casual Whites

White-06Some days you just want to be comfortable. Today I was in the mood for a breezy outfit and this one fit the bill perfectly. This strays from my usual tailored look, but I wanted something that was flowy and relaxed.

It’s hot, but there are mosquitoes EVERYWHERE so pants and longer sleeves are my friends. Are any of y’all dealing with this elsewhere? Perhaps it’s just a Kansas thing, but I swear they are HUGE and everywhere this year. It irks me so much, and I’ve adjusted my wardrobe accordingly.

It’s just sad.

Now I know a few of you may say “Um white? You have a baby.” Yes, I have a baby- not a toddler. He’s still pretty clean except for the constant stream of drool trickling out of his adorable little mouth. We haven’t gotten to the dirty/sticky fingers stage yet, so I’m wearing white while I still can!

Best Long Lasting Eyeliners


My Favorite Long Lasting Eyeliners So I have a bone to pick with eyeliner. It doesn't stay put. Ever. I've tried liquid, gel, pencil, waterproof, etc. Here's my main list of complaints: fading melting/moving stings (Yep, certain liquid eyeliners. Trust me.) Won't come off when I need it to (waterproof) Over the years I have tried almost every single eyeliner on the market under $30. There are some more expensive than that, but let's be honest, spending that is a bit ludicrous … [Continue reading...]

June Birchbox

2015-06-21 06.41.15

Birchbox is back in my good graces! Earlier this month, I posted my Birchbox from May and discussed how unimpressed I was with the contents. It was "meh" at best. They must've heard my dissatisfaction and came up with this special box for me, because this month it's FANTASTIC. Keep in mind this box is only $10 a month. First up is this shampoo and conditioner duo. It smells fantastic and has gotten great reviews online. I'm pretty excited about it. I will always be down to try new shampoo … [Continue reading...]
