Sequin Anchor

Hola lovelies!!!
Hope you all had a great weekend!! Libbey and I enjoyed our weekend away with family, but are happy to get home with JD! Miss Libbey has her 9 months check up! I’m interested to see how much she has grown! She is crawling like crazy and eating more and more “people” food! She loved playing with all the little ones this past weekend! Below is what I wore on Thursday for our little road trip!

Libbey was a great little traveler! We stopped once to give her a quick break from her car seat!

Have a great week!

My Go To Beauty Products

Hey Hey Heyyyyyy!!!
I haven’t talked about beauty products in a while, so I thought I would update you guys on what I have been using!!

20140508-094422.jpg
This stuff is aaaamazing!! I have super sensitive skin and this stuff does not break me out!! It does wonders!! I have dry skin in the winter and oily skin in the summer and this works all year round! The oil is rich in vitamin c, so it helps make your skin look brighter and is also a fabulous moisturizer!
I use this under eye treatment cream at night. I never really had circle under my eyes until I had Miss Libbey! I feel like this cream really helps with my under eye circle!!

First Aid Beauty has some fabulous products! I’m really in to their moisturizer and eye cream right now! The moisturizer is the bomb! Like I mentioned earlier, my skin was soooo dry this winter. It was disgusting, but the moisturizer works wonders!! It soaks in to my skin really quickly! The under eye cream is great for those in their 20’s and 30’s! I use it in the morning after I wash my face. It helps with fine lines and wrinkles and definitely helps my under eyes stay hydrated!

Ok, I promise this is the last moisterizer….. But, seriously guys you NEED to use moisterizer!!!! We don’t want to look 55 when we are only 30! This stuff is great if you don’t want to pay a lot! I use this when I’m not really going to wear much makeup because it has SPF in it! You can find it at your nearest CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart!

20140508-102019.jpg
These face wipes are fab!! I have tried sooo many different brands of face wipes and these are my favorite so far!! Some feel rough on my face and burn my eyes, but these don’t! I feel like they kinda smell like tanning lotion though, but other than that I love them!!

I clearly have an addiction to eye cream! The Olay Hydrating Eye Cream works really well! I use it when my eyes feel super dry!! You can find it at Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens, but this is similar!
Who doesn’t love a face mask!! I really like this one! It is great for overall cleansing and it really clears my pores!!

Hope you guys find that you like some of these products! I would to hear what works for you or if you know of anything you think I would like !

Thanks for reading!!
Xoxo,
Amanda

I’m throwing a baby shower for one of my close friends so I have been running a lot of errands. I am finishing up today so I wanted to be comfortable, yet put together. I love these pink wedged heels because not only do they make my outfit a little dressier, but are comfortable to wear for a longer period of time.

Hope everyone has a FAB Friday!

I am considering this for a possible New Year’s Eve outfit. I actually do not own an article of clothing that is all glitter or sequins…YET. I think this leopard skirt which is totally affordable could  pair with almost any color of top! I also LOVE LOVE LOVE leopard print.

After having Libbey, I love leggings even more than before! It can be hard to feel put together and be running around and taking care of not only myself and a baby. It is well worth it though! I am pretty excited to dress up tonight and go to a wedding. We will probably post our outfits tomorrow from tonight!

I also want to start marking the milestone’s of miss Libbey or just her “new” things in general. This week she started laughing 🙂

Me and JD introduced Libbey to a couple more of our friends from college today! It was nice to stay home and hang out. I chose to wear the polka-dot sweater because its warm and cozy for this chilly Illinois weather. Cute and comfy:)

I had a pretty laid back Monday with only two weeks left until it is back to school for me:( Only one more semester until I graduate! Thank the LAAAWD! It is nice to take it easy though and hang out with my family and less worries. I mean really life is good.

We hope everyone had a good Monday!
