Want to know how hard it is to do family pictures on a tripod with self timer? Haha it is pretty hard. That one was the best we got! Luckily everywhere else we were we had someone with us to take a quick pic but this time we didn’t. I am in love with the parks in Utah at this time of year, it seriously doesn’t get better. I am pretty sure Atticus loves the cool weather because he is always SO hot, I will be freezing and somehow he is sweating and I have to blow on him to cool him down.. so he was loving that fresh air. And as you can tell he LOVES diaper changes! Sometimes if he is being fussy we just lay him on his pad and take off his diaper and he instantly is all giggles. Kid loves bein naked! Can ya blame him? haha.

Utah was also much needed to do a Nordstrom run! I stocked up on my Estee Lauder foundation while I was there. I got a few since they were on sale and if you spend more than $45 you get a free $165 gift which comes with am and pm resilience lift wrinkle cream, their night recovery serum, cleanser, lipstick, and some other goodies. I was like wait what is the catch here? haha but apparently Nordstrom just knows how to do gifts so make sure you stock up now while you can! Its also a good time because most people, like me, need to scale down a shade for fall and winter. I ran out right after we moved here and thought since we didn’t have a Nordstrom or any place that sold Estee Lauder I would try out some new ones… I tried Smashbox, Tarte, and a generic brand from the store but can’t remember which – hated them all!! None of them worked for me, so I guess Estee Lauder Double wear is here to stay. and got a few other things for fall including this jacket and MARC by MARC  JACOBS neon cross body – because who says neon is only for spring?! This jacket is so soft and cozy I want to live in it.

Have a good day!

*Thanks to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

  1. Can you pretty pretty please tell me what shade of ES foundation you wear? Long time reader back when you used the Revlon 008 foundation and that was my shade too….I can’t make it into a Nordstroms so wanted to order online 🙂 It would be soooooooo helpful!!!

  2. You have the cutest little family… I don’t think a bad picture of you guys is even possible! Love that little bag too… the pop of neon looks great with the monochromatic look.


  3. A couple months ago I decided to take some time for me and take better care of myself. You blog has sing handedly revamped me and I feel so much better. I got som hair extensions- which are crazy fun and some double wear- a huge change from the tinted moisturizer I was wearing and I am using sugar to wash my face with. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for the direction and inspiration, it’s given me so much confidence.

  4. Where did you get your son’s super cute mint blue sweater? It’s super cute and my little boy needs one!

  5. I love the black contrasting with your purse! And I think you guys did an awesome job with the self timer! Atticus is so cute, and I love his smile 🙂 My baby girl loves diaper changes as well 🙂

  6. Neon anything is my ABSOLUTE favorite! and paired with black? the best! Hahah I totally understand your pain with the tripod, I’m constantly forced to use it if none of my roommates are available!

    xoxo hails.

  7. I love the pop of yellow! Such an adorable family, I love seeing your adventures!


  8. Thanks for the tip on the sale! This is my fave foundation and I love catching it on sale! And what girl doesn’t love free samples so she can try out a whole bunch of new products? Love the neon bag, too!

  9. Long time reader of your amazing blog! (And I follow a lot of blogs but yours is my favorite, reading your blog I feel like we are bffs) First off hot dang you look amazing can’t believe you had baby A just a couple of months ago! Anywho, I’m a makeup artist currently working the wedding circuit, and hopefully breaking into high fashion soon, which brings me to my point that the matte velvet foundation by makeup forever (I don’t normally use primers but this foundation works really well with a makeup forever primer) works just as well as the double wear, if not a tiny bit better! So if you are ever in a pinch maybe you can get your hands on that one!
    Sending love from DC!
