weekend.



Oh hello weekend!! Hello new bedding from Christy and new book to dive into from Shannan Martin!!

Loved getting to do this bedroom refresh.  We had white bedding before, but something about fresh white crisp *quality* bedding -- oh man, it gives me heart eyes.  And new sheets too -- such a treat.  We have been sleeping like babies (quite literally -- since I do in fact get up when my baby is awake. but all those in-between sleeps are just yummy!).  My favorite things about this set are the details on the top sheet and the super plush wool blend throw blanket.  I'm so ready to wrap up in cool weather!
If you're looking for a revamp yourself -- check out Christy (especially right now as so much is on sale)... you really will find some beautifully designed quality pieces that are just as cozy as they are beautiful.  I have my eyes on matching twin Romany duvets for when we move to our farm cottage in a few months!

What's on my bed:
Odessa Throw (currently on sale)
Sumatra Indigo Decretive Pillow
Chantly White Duvet Cover, Shams, & Top Sheet
Renaissance Sheet Set

bareMinerals nude lip


You know that snapchat filter.  The one with the yellow butterflies that people are always wanting to wear in real life waking and sleeping?  Part of the reason it is so awesome is because it gives a perfect nude lip.  I for one am loving this lip trend.  Bold lipstick can be super fun, but I love the wearability of these more understated tones.

I have loved getting to try several shades and finishes of bareMinerals New Gen Nude Lip colors for perfect nude lips.  They've got just about every shade covered -- 60 different shades in 4 different finishes.  


Nude tone lip colors in buttercream lipgloss (bottom), radiant lipstick (middle), matte liquid lip color (top), and under over lip liner (kiss).  There are four different families of colors when thinking about nude colors - beige, peach, mauve, and pink.

I've found the lipstick finish to be kind of sheer which I really like as it makes it impossible to have a cakey look.  It's unscented and flavored and pretty moisturizing for a lipstick.  The matte lip gloss is top notch of the different matte lip color I've tried.  It doesn't dry up completely, which is in my opinion keeps you from getting cracked lip color.  It too is even a bit moisturizing.  The matte is not unscented, but kind of smells like chocolate so its yummy.  The buttercream gloss I haven't worn as much, but I'm super thankful to find that it is not sticky, is moisturizing (works on slightly chapped lips), and has a sweet scent.  So far, my favorite combo is the "crush" radiant lipstick paired with the "freestyle" under over liner (worn below).   

The matte & buttercream lipgloss are $18 each, lipstick $20, and liners are $16.  You can find these at bareMinerals stores & online, sephora, ulta, and inside other retailers like Macy's.

me and mini with evy's tree + honey by evy's tree

hoodies: Evy's Tree / Honey by Evy's Tree
clogs: Lotta From Stockholm

My sweet big girl started kindergarten when I was just two weeks postpartum with baby number three.  Lots of transition with lots of emotions for all of us.  School equals long days where we both miss each other a painful amount.  When we got our Evy's Tree and Honey by Evy's Tree matching hoodies in the mail, it was the hugest smile on my Magnolia's face.  Such a treat to get to match mommy and to get a surprise in the mail that so suited her sweet whimsical newly kindergarten self.  She fancies herself quite the sophisticated school girl in her hoodie and asks for us to go out together matching as often as possible.  Does both our souls good.

If you haven't checked out Evy's Tree yet (and Honey by Evy's Tree) you will love them.  After all - what's not to love about luxury hoodies?!  Not just for yoga pants and active wear, love how versatile yet always comfortable these pieces are.   We love these Reece hoodies in Lipstick Red (I have a size medium and M has a size kids small) -- the ruffles, the pockets, the thumb holes and so so soft.  And there is so much more awesome coming out this fall (I got a peak!)!
