Bright Eyes

Duchenne Smile: a smile associated with positive emotion, in which one raises their cheeks and forms crow's feet around the eyes - aka, you're on the fast track to 20 units of botox baby. At least I am anyway. 

I wear my emotions of my face and love living life to the fullest, but that doesn't mean that I'm always thrilled with the end result...wrinkles. So, when VIICode asked me to review their amazing O.M. (oxygen mask), I was all 'bout it, 'bout it baby!

After one night of giving these eye masks a try, I woke up feel completely refreshed! I immediately noticed how hydrated my peepers felt. After two nights, even better!  I'm now halfway through the pack and can't wait to see what I feel (and look) like when its through. Fingers crossed for lightening my dark circles - which I've read long-time-use reviewers report. 

One thing I will note: wearing these masks overnight can be tricky if you're a rough sleeper like me. I had moved one halfway down my face before the night was through. But hey, that's me. For those of you that sleep much more delicately than me, it might not be a problem.

Red Hot

If you live in Colorado, you know it's been anything but red hot lately. In fact, it's been stone cold. Our state has been acting like the pacific northwest for the past month, and the rain has been pouring down. #overit The sun did peek out enough over the weekend for me to step out in one of my favorite new sundresses though. Moments like these give me slivers of hope. For real though, SAD is totally a thing!

One good thing about the rain is that it has given me the chance to stay inside and work on our home. Guys, we're almost done with our renovation!! Another good thing about the rain is that it's given me the chance to stay inside and shop all the stellar Memorial Day Weekend sales! I snagged this dress from LuLu*s, where items are up to 70% off!!

And, while us girls are talking about sales, check out my top picks from Nordy's

LuLu*s Memorial Day Sale

I had the best of intentions to share an outfit with this post, but's been raining nonstop for the past 2-3 weeks. Aside from driving me absolutely crazy, the rain has really put a hold on my outfit shoots!! Praying the rain takes a break long enough this weekend for me to catch up, but if not it's safe to stay I'll be staying inside taking advantage of all the crazy good Memorial Day sales, including this one from LuLu*s!

Chambray Romper

Rompers tend to contradict themselves in terms of functionality. On one hand, similar to a Summer dress, they are incredible easy to throw on without a second thought. On the other, let's just say that going to the ladies room has never been such a process. (You know what I mean!)
I picked this romper up on our trip to Austin last month. I actually saw it in People StyleWatch magazine on the plane ride out on Alessandra Ambrosio, and hey, anything I can do to look more like a Victoria Secret angel...count me in! (The pizza I had last night for dinner doesn't count.)

Bikini Bound

Truth: I have never felt comfortable in a bikini. Even when I'm in my best shape, I find it so hard to find styles that flatter and make me feel sexy. Shoot, forget sexy - I've yet to find a suit that even makes me feel comfortable! One thing I've learned though is to work with what your mama gave you, and aim for pieces that flatter your body. Ruffle tops are that piece. Even then, a cute cover up never hurt anyone either. ;)

If you're following me on Instagram, you know I can't get enough of these distressed denim jeans! I've seriously been living in them! 

There's something so chic and understated about distressed denim and an oversized button up. An white button up is a true closet staple that screams button up, while the oversized look screams, "girl, you trendy." Oh, and don't even get me started on these mules. Can't stop, won't stop wearing them. They are almost identical to the Vince pair I've been eyeing, at a fraction of the cost! (PSA - size down!)

Stay tuned because I have posts lined up all week! Can't wait to share all the fun fashion and beauty goodness with you!
