Growing up my mom was always on us about making sure we took our shoes off as soon as we walked into the house. Reasons for this was because she didn’t like her carpets dirty or seeing dirt in the house. When I got my own place with my boys – that rule became a rule in our home. Funny how that works. I realized that by doing this it really does keep our place clean.

During this time of the year, Target is the best place to shop for American Flag Shorts or anything that has the American Flag. I swear Target takes my money every time I go in there because they have the cutest clothes. When it comes to shorts I’m extremely picky because I am short, I have a butt and curves. I saw these at Target and I had to pick them up because they are perfect for 4th of July. Plus they are high waisted shorts and although I always have the hardest time with high waisted shorts because some of them show your cheeks. I was lucky enough to find a pair that didn’t.
e.l.f Cosmetics has been around for a while now and their products have either been a hit or miss. I have always been skeptical when it came to their products because it was so cheap for being a drugstore brand. And when I say their products I mean their makeup products. I’ve never had issues with their makeup brushes. I remember when I first tried their foundation and it wasn’t the best. I really hated it. But it seems like e.l.f Cosmetics has improved their some of their products. I received this blush palette in a PR package as part of the #ElfBeautySquad and I was so excited to see how pigmented these colors were.
Last week I shared with you an affordable Fourth of July look but I promise this isn’t another holiday outfit. If you guys read my post last week I purchased a few items from SheIn. If you’re unfamiliar with SheIn – it’s basically an international online shop that sells affordable clothes. I was told about this shop through my friend Steffanie from Brighter Darling and I was immediately impressed by the price of the clothes. But there’s a difference when you look at the price and the quality of the clothes.
You guys 4th of July is 2 weeks away. But this weekend my city is having a 4th of July event which is called “Shake the Lake”. They set off fireworks for 4th of July on the lake and this is our first year taking my boys to it. Of course, I had to create a fun Holiday Makeup: Easy Red White and Blue look. I mean we are celebrating America’s Independence Day why not go all out for this holiday.
Now that we’re full blown summer weather, I’m collaborating with my blog bestie Alexis from A Blissful Haven to share with you, our Summer Beauty and Fashion Must-Haves. We rounded up our favorite beauty and fashion items. With it being warm out I’m sure you want to know what are great beauty products to use this summer and what fashion trends are in or are our favorite trends. When it comes to beauty in the summer I like to keep it very minimal. The fewer products I have to put on, the better because I have oily skin and I hate when I feel sweaty with a bunch of beauty products on.
This weekend we had the pleasure of going to the Kalahari Resorts. Now if you read my Summer Bucket List, you saw me talk about how going to the Kalahari Resorts in Wisconsin Dells was on our bucket list because it’s such a great fun place to go as a family. Well, thanks to Kalahari Resorts we were able to go for the day. Let me just say that we had the BEST TIME there. The boys and Brian have never been there but I have a few years ago but a lot has changed since I’ve been there. First off they have this new water ride called “The Smoke that Thunders”.
We are literally days away from Fourth of July. Can you believe it? I’m teaming up with Steffanie from Brighter, Darling to give you some Fourth of July fashion inspiration. Now in Wisconsin, it gets REALLY hot and muggy during the day on Fourth of July. But at night when you’re watching the fireworks by the lake, the mosquitos can be a big pain and it can get a tad bit nippy. For me, I love to make sure I’m covered as much as possible because I’m allergic to mosquitos. Yes I know, it’s weird but my body reacts differently when I get bit by one.
Everyone knows that I like to make sure I look bronzy in the summer (actually all year around) so when PUR Cosmetics released their PUR Cosmetics Bronze Your Selfie, I was lucky enough to have a bottle sent to me to test out. This is a limited edition so if you decide that this is something you need after you read my review, I highly suggest you purchase it right away before they’re gone.
