Mary Kay Chromafusion Make Up

I’m so excited about Mary Kay sponsoring this beautiful make up look! The new Chromafusion Collection has some of the smoothest and most vivid eyeshadows I’ve ever used. I have the magnetized Pro Palette so it’s filled with an array of blushes, eye shadows, highlighters and contours. It’s nice to have so many essentials in one secure location.

The inspiration for this look came from my love of monochromatic fashion styling. I broadened my makeup wardrobe to include gorgeous colors like my garments. Now my monochromatic look expands into my face with my Mary Kay Chromafusion collection.

I know you want to know more about what I used to create this “fifty shades of green” look so here we go! On my lid I used Emerald Noir to create a cool cat eye look. I used a tiny bit of Shiny Penny in the inner corner of my eye and lightly in the center of my lid too. I used the Hot Coral blush on my cheeks which looks beautiful on brown skin! To add to this already beautiful look I used Honey Glow highlighter for an added glow!

I got so many compliments on this makeup look while I was out shooting so I’m so pumped to finally share all of the details.

Enjoy Color Bees!

Colorful Bags from mywalit

Thank you mywalit for sponsoring this beautiful purse!

When cooler weather arrives the first thing we do is douse ourselves in a sea of black and brown. The current season shouldn’t write all of the rules for the colors we wear. If you are new to the blog you have so much to learn about one of my favorite accessories brand, mywalit!

Mywalit was founded in 2005 in Lucca, Italy and is known for its colorful leather wallets, bags, coin purses and handbags. Ranging from multicolored stripes to unique color blocking, mywalit has so many colorful options.

As a mom of a growing boy I need to hands free when we are out and about. Children are unpredictable and you never know when you have to save the day. I don’t want to sacrifice style and color for function and with the Caracas bag in the teal color I don’t have to.

Grant likes to collect things as we go on adventures. His finds and my stuff will fit beautifully into my purse. Check out mywalit’s beautiful collections on their website. You will find so many things to love! Enjoy Color Bees!

Fall Essentials from Old Navy

Twinning with your little one NEVER gets old! Thanks Old Navy for sponsoring this fabulous fall look! There are some prints and patterns that you need to get your hands on every single fall season and buffalo plaid is one of them.

One of the best tips when it comes to twinning is matching patterns. It automatically ups the cute factor and seamlessly syncs you with your mini. When I shopped for this look I took grant with me and asked him to help choose an outfit that would make us look like twins. The look on his face when he saw that we could both wear “red shirts” was the sweetest! I took it from there but boy did he feel accomplished.

For our bottoms I went with a dark black jean on the bottom while Grant has a grey jean. I switched that idea for our jackets so that I could have a grey wash on my jacket and let Grant have a richer black wash denim jacket. I love that Grant’s denim jacket has a hoodie on it so that his head and ears stay warm. Twinning is about “looking alike” but the deeper idea is that you are recognizably connected to your loved one. This always make us so happy that we just smile and have to best time together when we twin. See what joy twinning can bring in to your life.

Shop our looks below and be sure to send me pictures of you and you little s twinning!

Enjoy!

Halloweekend at Splashway

Our family Halloweekend at Splashway Water Park & Camp Grounds was one for the books! No this was not a typical camping experience for us because the wonderful Splashway team completely exceeded our expectations from day one! Because of their fabulous screened in cabins there was no sleeping outside, bugs or mosquitos. Even the weather decided to cooperate and we got overcast skies. 

From the moment we got there my five year old had his heart set on riding the pedal bikes that look like motor cars and he loved it! It’s so nice that Splashway has things for children of all ages to do. Arts & crafts, a (magical) pumpkin patch, a food truck, two haunted houses and kid friendly live music are all on that list just to name a few!

There is a putt putt golf course, two playgrounds, a basketball court and even laser tag. We even spent some time in our cabins and it was a time that I will never forget. When I walked in I was completely surprised by all of the amazing amenities and how well designed the cabin was. I can’t believe it sleep 10 people!!!! There is one bedroom downstairs and a loft with four queen size beds at the top. The kids spent so much time up there. It was like a little tree house! We had a full kitchen,  t.v with cable and a full bathroom as well. Even the towels, coffee maker, mugs and utensils were readily available inside the cabin when we arrived. We can’t wait to visit again soon and check out the water park once it opens again in the summer!
