2ND BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

Hi everyone!
  
In case you didn't know, my sweet little girl turned TWO last Wednesday! My husband and I decided to rent out a nice pavilion at a local park and invite our closest family and friends to celebrate with us. 

We were blessed with nice weather, good food, and great company. Lilah had a blast playing on the playground right next to the pavilion (and in the dirt of course). It was such a wonderful day! 

I have so many photos I want to share from that day, but since it's not acceptable to post 30 pictures on Instagram at once, I figured this would be the perfect place to share our memories of the day that I'll be able to look back on easily.

So, I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into my little girl's special day! 
  

TO MY DAUGHTER ON HER SECOND BIRTHDAY


Hi baby girl, 

Can you believe that it's been two wonderful years since you entered the world at 4:09 pm and changed your daddy and I's lives forever? 

Two years since I held your tiny, warm body in my arms for the first time after a long labor. 

Two years since I kissed your sweet, soft forehead for the first time as you tried to make sense of this bright, scary world that you were thrust in to. 

Two years since the first day of many that I watched you bring joy into the lives of everyone your adorable and hilarious personality touched. 

FAVORITE DRUGSTORE LIPSTICKS FOR FALL

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely week so far. 

September already seems to be flying by, I can't believe it's almost half way over! You know what that means right? The official start of fall (or autumn as I often like to call it) is only a mere
 10 DAYS AWAY! In case you can't tell, I'm pumped. Even though it will most likely still be in the high 80s here in Texas, you can bet that I will be planning for Halloween, lighting all of my pumpkin candles, and rocking dark lipsticks. 

Speaking of lipsticks and fall time, in this post I am so excited to share with you all my absolute favorite drugstore lipsticks for the upcoming season. I am a bit of a lipstick hoarder, so it was hard to narrow down my favorites to just a few. So, even though a lot of these shades are pretty similar and in the same color family, different formulas make them stand out. I swear even the most similar ones hold slightly different tones (which totally justifies why I purchased them in my head). 


My favorite shades to wear during the fall season are mauves, dark berry tones, and dark reds. I compiled 9 of my favorites that I wear constantly together here for you so that you can prepare your makeup collection for the upcoming season. So, without further ado, here are my favorite drugstore lipsticks for fall!

STRESSED BUT BLESSED: LIFE UPDATE

Hi y'all! 

I feel like it has been a hot minute since I've posted anything about what's been going on in my life lately, so I thought it was about time that I get you all up to speed. I know I mentioned wanting to do more personal posts on my blog a couple months ago, but I just haven't had any big changes or exciting things happen to talk about until now. 

This post wasn't planned or overthought or anything like that. I just got home to my class, laid Lilah down for a nap, and spontaneously felt like getting on here and talking (& venting a little) to y'all on a more personal level. 

AUGUST FAVORITES

Hi y'all! I can't believe that we're only days away from September! August was a great (busy) month, but I am so ready to embrace September and all the fall goodness that's to come. I can almost taste the pumpkin pies...mmm.

Anyways, (since I'm sure you all are getting tired of hearing me mention my love for the time of year that's approaching), in honor of the end of the month, I thought I'd share the things that I have been loving these last four weeks with all of you! I've come across some new things that I am obsessing over, as well as tried and true products that I rediscovered. 

So, without further ado, here are 5 things that I have been loving in the month of August!

AUGUST 2016 IPSY BAG

Hi y'all! I'm sorry I got this post up a little later than I wanted to. My first day of classes was today, and needless to say I'm already feeling pretty stressed out by everything that this next semester will entail. I know that I can do it if I keep myself driven and focused though, so I'm trying to stay positive. 

Anyways, in other news I received my August Ipsy bag about a week ago, and I am loving it! 

For those that don't know, Ipsy is a $10 monthly subscription beauty bag that is filled with 5 full sized or sample sized products. To read up about it a little more check out my post here. It's a fun inexpensive way to try out and discover new makeup. 

The reason I haven't posted about Ipsy in a while was because I honestly wasn't too impressed with the last couple bags I received. However, I think they got their stuff together because this bag was a hit! So, without further ado, here are the goodies I got this month! I hope you enjoy! 

5 BACKPACK ESSENTIALS

Hi everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the last little bit of summer. I FINALLY finished my summer classes Saturday so I'm really enjoying this last week of relaxation. While I'm happy that this stressful summer has come to a close, I'm thankful for all the fun times I had with my family and friends the last few months. 

 Sticking with last post's back to school vibe, I thought I'd make a quick post to tell y'all all about 5 essentials that I always have in my backpack with me to carry to class. These are 5 must-haves that I consistently make sure to pack along with all my books, folders, etc. 

I hope y'all enjoy!
