It has been a hot minute since either of us have written a blog post. We hate that it has been so long but to be completely 100% honest, we are just trying to figure out how to balance everything — babies, husbands, work, Collins + Conley, and somehow get some sleep in there! We’re slowly but surely going to figure it out, but know that we still love this blog so much and plan to keep posting, we just don’t know what it will look like yet.
There have been quite a few things that I have really been loving this summer that I wanted to share with all of you!
This super cute hat is the perfect hat for your beach day or lounging by the pool. I ordered it right before our trip to Austin and love it so much! I love wearing hats when I know I’ll be out in the sun all day because I want to make sure and protect my face from all the UV rays and this one allows you to do that & look super cute!
Speaking of laying by the pool… I told Trey that for me to get in a swimsuit this year it had to be a really, really cute one to make me feel a little bit better about this postpartum bod being revealed to all. Albion Fit swimsuits are such amazing quality & will last you for years AND they are so so so pretty. Here’s my swimsuit top & swimsuit bottom that I got this year. They are a little bit on the pricey side but I 110% think they are worth it.
On a recent Sephora trek, Sarah & I both decided to invest in this Artis Oval Brush & I have to say it was one of the best purchases I’ve made in awhile. It makes your foundation look flawless & feels so soft on your skin! I’m a big fan and want more of these brushes.
After a recent trip to Milk + Honey Spa at the Shops at Clearfork, I finally got a rose quartz face roller and boy oh boy do I love it. It is so cold on your skin when you start rolling and feels amazing. In fact, even if it had zero benefits for my skin, I would still do it because it feels so good. It’s perfect for the busy mom who just wants a minute or two of feeling pampered in her day.
I’ve shared these sunglasses that I got for Christmas before, but I have to share them again because I love them & get asked about them a lot!
In the summer, I like having very, very light foundation for daily wear. It’s so blazing hot here that having anything too heavy would just feel miserable. I love Beautycounter’s Tint Skin because it’s lightweight, moisturizing, and provides just enough coverage to give you an even skin tone.
OK, this stuff is my new mom survival tip #1. I haven’t gotten to spend hardly any time at the pool because Collins can’t quite handle this Texas sun yet & so I’m looking preeeettttty white. I put on this Healthy Glow before I put on my foundation and it provides just a little bit of color and I love it. It’s unisex & adapts to your skin color to provide just the perfect amount of warmth. I’m a big, big fan.
I had always heard of the brand “Briogeo” but hadn’t tried any of their products. On the above mentioned Sephora trek (where we got the Artis Oval Brush) I got a few hair products that my hair was really needing (the postpartum hair struggle is real). I got the Fairwell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Creme (longest name ever) because I had been meaning to get a heat protectant for an embarrassing long time and I have really liked it. I have absolutely loved the Don’t Despair, Repair! Strength + Moisture Leave In Mask. My hair has been really dry and almost brittle since having Collins and this has helped out so much. Both of these products smell amazing & I will definitely be purchasing again.
I have put off the natural deodorant thing for so long. I just didn’t believe that it was going to work for me, but I have been unbelievably impressed by Native. It is holding up even in the 100 degree heat of Texas so it has made me a true believer. I have been using the Cucumber Mint scent and Trey has used a few different scents, but I really loved the Eucalyptus Mint flavor that he used first!
