Friday Fab Four

Okay, I know the first part of Friday Fab Four is supposed to be about fashion, but I am making it about beauty today. I tried a new makeup remover/cleanser I would like for you guys to know about because it works and it’s moisturizing. It’s this cleansing balm by Colleen Rothschild and it’s so amazing! Get it. Your skin will thank you. Oh and I got you guys a 20% off code! Use CLARA20. You won’t regret it. I know it isn’t even July, but I went ahead and got Hannah a winter coat. I feel like last winter I wasn’t as prepared as […]

Friday Fab Four!

Uhhh, did you know you can buy swimsuits on Etsy?! Is there anything this site can’t do??? Hannah has been wearing overalls a lot this summer. They are SO CUTE. I put her in her little Martha Washington bonnet and she looks like a presidential farmer. I love these. I made my first homemade pizza! It was delish, except next time I am adding mozzarella to the recipe. Also, if you don’t have a pizza stone but you want to ensure your pizza crust is crispy, preheat your baking sheet to 500 degrees for 15 minutes before you put your pizza […]

Summer is here and getting a good sunscreen is even more important than finding a cute swimsuit. If you don’t wear sunscreen, I am giving you all the side eye. You should wear sunscreen every. single. day. No excuses. Since you rub sunscreen directly onto your skin, it is important to find one that isn’t laden with nasty chemicals. Here is a list of good and bad sunscreens. Alas, a lot of the commercial favorites like Banana Boat, Coppertone, and Neutrogena are on the ‘naughty list’. I got this sunscreen for the summer and so far I really like it. I read […]

Friday Fab Four

Friday Fab Four took a brief hiatus, but now it’s BACK! Woot! J.Crew has some really cute bathing suits that are on sale! Get ’em while they’re hot! I am on a quest for the perfect sun hat for Hannah. I need a hat that is cute, goes with everything, and has a chin strap so she will keep it on her fuzzy little head. There are a lot of ugly sun hats in this world. But this one seems to fit all my criteria. Also, my grandmother said something that perfectly summarized my struggle with buying baby clothes. I was complaining because […]

Outfit Post Outtakes!!!

These are my favorite posts to do because they are so embarrassingly awkward. You might think a blogger you follow has a perfectly styled life, but lurking on her hard drive is the real truth. Outfit post outtakes do not lie! There’s a theme to this set of outtakes. It’s *drumroll please* Keeping Hannah Happy. Let’s go…   These days, about 75% of my outtakes are of me talking to Hannah. She comes with us on every blog shoot and is always just out of frame chilling in her stroller or carseat. She is usually fussing because I am so close but […]

I love this little off-the-shoulder top. I could see myself wearing it endlessly this summer. I have had an off-the-shoulder top on my ‘want now, please’ list for ages but I haven’t found the perfect one yet. There are too many great choices! I went a little crazy pinning salad recipes this week. Tell me this shrimp and avocado salad doesn’t look amazing?? Even though the idea of Hannah being in or near a pool strikes fear into my heart, I want to buy her this swimsuit because I have a similar one and we can be twins. Except wtf […]

Friday Fab Four

When I did my wedding guest dress post earlier this week I was reacquainted with ModCloth. Now I can’t stop browsing their site wanting to buy all of the dresses. Like, can we all take a moment to appreciate the majesty of this dress?! Apparently these are the greatest peanut butter cookies ever. I want to make them and then eat all of them. My only issue is the recipe calls for shortening. For some reason the idea of consciously cooking and eating shortening gives me major anxiety. I know I eat it without knowing all the time, but it’s the knowing that gets me. Maybe […]

The Books I Read in April

This picture has nothing to do with books, but it is so cute of me and Hannah getting ready to go a Coachella theme party. Hannah is rocking her tie-dye dress and ‘flower crown’. The Light of the Fireflies: I can’t decide if this is a genius books about the psychological effects of abuse or if this is the single most masochistic book I’ve ever read. I am leaning towards option two, sadly. This book is similar in plot to Room, but it focuses on an entire family who lives together in a basement. The book starts off promising but quickly […]

Is your mom a GoT fan? This shirt is perfect for Mother’s Day. I wish they had one that said ‘Mother of Dragon’ for those of us with one kid or ‘Mother of Dragon Dog/Cat’ for pet moms. But that might be getting too nitpicky. Hannah has little teeth now. I want to start teaching her good dental habits early but she is not too keen on the idea. Right now, I have been trying to wipe her little teeth and gums with a damp wash cloth, but she is NOT here for that. She clamps down her little jaw, turns […]

Friday Fab Four

  Is it ever okay to spend $400 on a top? Well if it was I would absolutely get this shirt. I have been obsessed with acai bowls lately. Hannah and I eat them almost every day. Now I am on a quest for other smoothie bowls to try. This one looks so yum! Though I would have to omit the matcha powder from baby girl’s bowl. My child is literally all over the place. I can’t take my eyes off of her for even a second! I have to put her in the exersaucer when I am not right there beside her because she is […]
