I'm back! This week I'm sharing some awesome beauty products, where Joey and I are flying into for our weekend getaway and more!
ONE. I found this red dress and little circus themed purse at Target for Ava. I know they say no one thinks your kid is as cute as you do but is this not the cutest or what? This age is so fun for fashion!
TWO. The other day I actually sat down and took some time to read through Southern Living's July magazine. I discovered some yummy recipes that I tried out at a get together with friends last Saturday. Both dishes were a hit and very light and fresh with clean ingredients. I even got to use a bunch of basil from my garden to make this summer sauce. I adapted Southern Living's recipe and left out the mint. I'm not a big fan of mint. This summer sauce is great on veggies, pasta or even to dip bread in.
Recipes: Summer Sauce // Field Pea, Corn and Bacon Salad // Zucchini Rice Gratin
THREE. Last year, I had a subscription to Ipsy. My sister bought it for me for my first Mother's Day. I LOVED it! It introduced me to some amazing products that I never would have thought about trying in the store. Here are two that I am loving right now.
FOUR. Doucce Maxlash Volumizer Mascara
This mascara does wonders for my lashes. I usually wear eyeliner but since I received this mascara I have left behind my eyeliner for the summer.
Living Proof 5 in 1 Styling Treatment
I am a firm believer that good hair products equal good hair and hair styles that last all day where as cheap hair products create damaged hair and hair styles that last 10 minutes out the door (especially in Florida humidity). I have been using this on my hair when I get out of the shower and its made a huge difference on how my hair reacts to heat (hair dryer, straightener, curling iron). It reduces the frizz and leaves my hair feeling controlled and smooth.
FIVE. Mommy and Daddy Weekend Getaway. This weekend my parents are watching Ava and Joey and I are having a weekend together. Last week, we weren't sure what we wanted to do. We thought about the beach, or maybe just staying home, but then we decided lets go to New York!! So we bought our plane tickets last Wednesday and we're headed to New York City for the weekend!!! I am so excited! I will share all about our trip when we return home.
Join me in my journey as a wife, new mom and a baker as I learn to balance all of life's aprons.
