A few things on my mind:

Lately everyone has been asking when we will start trying for baby #2… Um what?! I still have a baby. He’s only one! So for all of those wondering… No plans for another baby any time soon😜. I love what Tru & I have going on and I have no intentions of changing that for a while. 

I had to get that out of the way before I mention that our little family has some exciting things happening in the next month! I hate when people say that & then don’t say what the actual news is, buuuuuttt… I don’t want to jinx it! So, for now, my lips are sealed. 😁

Today Truman and I are off to SLC for some work for me! I feel so lucky that I can take this cute boy everywhere with me. Truman will get to see his grandparents & cousins and have so much fun while I am working. We also get to see my sister, who just moved up to SLC where she will be attending the University of Utah! I can’t believe she is in COLLEGE… I still think of her as my teeny baby sis! After our visit to SLC, we will road trip it to Vegas with my mama and spend a week there! I love seeing family and can’t wait to share some of my trip with all of you! Xo

Sunday Dress

   
    
    
 
DRESS C/O CHICWISH | SHOES | BAG | WATCH | EARRINGS | EXTENSIONS | TRU’S ROMPER | MOCCS 

Sunday’s are one of my favorite days of the week! I love getting dressed up and going to church to be spiritually uplifted, inspired, and prepared for the new week. I also love getting Tru all dolled up and ironing his little clothes.  Church is not easy with a one year old, but so very worth it! Also, I die at how cute he looks in these pics! I love those baby blues of his. 

I am in love with my pretty dress from Chicwish. They have tons of gorgeous dresses and skirts! I especially love this one because it is not only beautiful, but so comfortable. If you are in need of some new dresses, definitely check out their site! Aaaand a major plus is that their clothing is super affordable–double win!! Now I’m off to take on my busy Monday of packing and preparing to leave town for a couple of weeks!  I’m so excited for this trip and love getting travel with my little besty, Tru babe! I hope you all have a wonderful day! Xoxo 

Keeping It Cool 

  
    
 SKIRT | TOP | BEADED NECKLACE | GOLD NECKLACE  | WATCH (USE CODE DTHOMPSY FOR $10 OFF A WATCH) | BANGLES

First things first- how cool is this wall we found in downtown Houston?! We’ve been going exploring around our new town every weekend & find awesome stuff each time. We are starting to really get into our routine here and are loving our little life here. 

Now let’s talk about this skirt + tee combo! Since it’s still SO freaking hot, I love wearing easy, breezy skirts or dresses. I absolutely LOVE this one, especially because you can easily dress it up or down. I paired it with my fav simple white tee(seriously the best and on SALE now so I & just ordered a few others in some different colors)! It was the perfect easy outfit to go out exploring with my family & it kept me cool & put together. I hope you are all having a wonderful and cool week! Xxx

Hair Shots

   
    
    
  
HAIR SHOTS C/O | LULULEMON TANK (SOLD- SIMILAR HERE) | BOMBSHELL EXTENSIONS | TAUDREY “DESTINY” NECKLACE | LIPSTICK (ON SALE NOW!) 

I am a total product junkie & absolutely love to try out new products! I was delighted to be able to try out Hair Shots and guys, guess what?! I absolutely LOVED them! So I’m guessing you’re wondering.. “What are hair shots?!” Hair Shots were created by a woman named Amy Lance who was inspired to create something in which would keep hair smelling good & fresh! Hair Shots are perfume fragrances which are heat activated. This means that as you are active, the scent intensifies. Ummm, hello #GENIUS !!! I am always on the look out for products that keep my hair fresh and clean feeling AND smelling delightful. Not only am I very active, but I also live in Houston where it is hot and suuuuper humid. I’ve tested these out for two weeks now because I really wanted to give my honest opinion on them and see how they worked for me and they are now officially on my list of must-haves! 

Hair Shots come in 9 amazing scents. My personal favorites are cotton candy & coconut mango- they smell SO divine! I also love that I can choose a scent to match my mood. If I’m not feeling fruity or sweet, something like Bamboo or Asian Green are a nice change. After getting out of the shower, I spray in my normal leave in conditioners + three sprays of a Hair Shots scent and then let it air dry. I also spray a few times on my dry hair before the gym or going out. I was so impressed with how well these babies work! The scents are so yummy- not overwhelming, but strong enough to give your locks a fresh delightful scent. Hair Shots are now definitely a staple in my beauty cabinet/gym bag and I’m so extremely happy I was able to test it out and share the great news with you! This product is growing popularity fast and has been featured in many of my favorite magazines like: SHAPE, US WEEKLY, & FITNESS ! I highly recommend that you try this product out, so that you can have delicious smelling hair all the time too! Cheers to Head Shots and amazing smelling hair!! Xoxo

My Day With Tru

  
    
      

   

   
    
   
KIMONO C/O Fash Foward Boutique | JEANS & WEDGES FROM LOLOELLE BOUTIQUE | GOLD “DESTINY” NECKLACE FROM TAUDREY | BROWN NECKLACE ALEXANDRA GIOIA | BOMBSHELL EXTENSIONS 

Days like today make me realize how truly blessed I am! I have the best job in the world- being a mama to the sweetest soul. Truman is the best baby and I could not be luckier! He is always on the go and such a busy boy, but today was different. He is teething and the only thing that made him happy was cuddling with me all day. He literally did not want to leave my side and was totally happy & content just sitting with me, occasionally holding my hand. It was heart melting and I couldn’t help but just feel completely happy. My heart is so full today! I love this boy so much and thank my Heavenly Father every day for sending me the sweetest blessing. When Sid got home from work, we ran a couple of errands & ended the night at the park. Truman loves the park and leaves exhausted, ready for a bath + bed! Sometimes the simplest days make for the best ones… I was able to truly enjoy and take in every moment with my son and it was the best ever. I love you Tru babe!

Líllé Baby Carriers | Black Tee (on sale & I bought it in a few different colors- order up a size for oversized look!)| Shorts (Sold- similar here)| Sunglasses | Sandals | Lipstick (Candy Yum Yum) | TAUDREY “Destiny” Necklace ) |Truman’s Hat c/o George Hats | Gold hand chain 

Last weekend we decided to go somewhere we hadn’t been to in Houston! We visited The Biscuit Paint Wall and it was so fun! Truman was LOVING all the colors. He also couldn’t help himself and flirted with all of the girls there taking pictures 😉 it was pretty hilarious!

We also had the chance to try out these Líllé Baby carriers! We had been looking for a better carrier and these are seriously so awesome! Truman was soo comfortable AND so were we. The wide and padded shoulder straps and waist belt help distribute the baby’s weight evenly, making it super comfortable to carry.  I also love the Líllé Baby COMPLETE carrier because it can be used 6 different ways to carry your baby safely and it grows with your baby. These carriers can be used from 7-45 lbs. I am also LOVING their new embossed collection and am obsessed with this  fun citrus color. It’s seriously such a pretty carrier and so easy to use, which is a MUST! I definitely recommend these carriers and wish I would have found them sooner. Also, how attractive are babywearing dads?! I am obsessed.

After exploring and driving around, we decided to try a new place to eat! Niko Niko’s was SO GOOD guys! If you are in the area, definitely try it. It is a new fav of ours for sure! It was even #TrumanApproved :) Hope you are all having a great week. Thanks for reading! Xo

TOPS C/O MODBOD | ZARA FLORAL JEANS – SOLD (SIMIALR HERE FOR UNDER $40) | FLORAL KIMONO C/O PlEIONE | HAT C/O WINDSOR | J BRAND JEANS – SOLD (SIMILAR HERE)| BLACK SHORTS | SUNGLASSSS C/O ZERO UV | BANGLES | 

Hellllo friends! Okay so today I am SUPER excited to share three different looks that I put together while wearing modbod tops! If you are not familiar with modbod, they are a company that carries tons of different items, but I think they are most known for their amazing basic tops, although they have come a long way from just basic tops!!! Anyways, these tops are a must in my life and have been for quite some time. I love being modest in my day to day wear, but of course still want to look cute and stylish and these tops make me feel extremely feminine without compromising my style and integrity. I wear these tops often in so many different ways. They can easily be worn to layer and just as easily be worn alone! They are super comfy and stretchy and come in so many different styles and colors. I typically go for the modbod signature cap sleeve (like the coral one I’m wearing in the pictures- such a gorg color and perfect for summer, right?!), but decided to also try the basic v tee (the white tee pictured above) and Signature Rev Scoop Neck tee (the blue one pictured above) and loved those tops just as much! I seriously fell IN LOVE with the blue top I am wearing in the pictures! The fit and color were just too good. And the sleeve…absolutely perfect! I’m thrilled that I ventured out and tried out this sleeve length! These modbod tops are so flattering for all body types. They run true to size, so keep this in mind when you go to order, although the v tee runs a little bit big (which is fine for me because I LOVE the slightly oversized look at times, too!). These “basic” tops are not your basic tops at all. They are a MUST staple in my wardrobe that I can style countless ways all year long. What more can a girl ask for?? Happy shopping, loves!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Beauty Favorites

As I’m sure most of my readers know, I am a total beauty junky and have a serious passion for taking care of my skin. I absolutely LOVE trying out new products, but I definitely have my favorites that I will ALWAYS use. A few of my beauty favs are actually on sale right now at Nordstrom, so I HAD to share them with you + some items that I ordered and can’t wait to try. I will be sharing my full skin care routine soon, but for now here’s a sneak peak of some of the products I use and recommend:

1. Clarisonic Mia 2: I never go a day without using my Clarisonic! I absolutely love it. My skin always feels so clean and smooth after using it. It is seriously my favorite step when getting ready for bed because I love how amazing it leaves my skin feeling. I honestly feel like it is a MUST have and I could not live without it! PLUS.. this one is floral and SOOO dang cute.

2. MAC “Look In A Box”: I don’t feel like my look is complete without some lipstick! I absolutely love this MAC set that creates a fuchsia statement lip. “Flat Out Fabulous” is one of my favorite lipstick colors so this set is definitely a #winner. Like seriously, I got SUPER excited when I saw this set!!!

3. PMD: I am a HUGE fan of PMD. It’s a personal microdermabrasion device and it seriously works wonders. I love mine & use it once a week, every week. I love how it exfoliates and removes dead skin, leaving me with bright and healthy skin! I literally feel like my face “glows” after I use it.

4. GLAMGLOW Set: This set includes three different GLAMGLOW products! I’ve only tried the THIRSTYMUD hydrating treatment & I absolutely love it! You can actually leave that one on over night for extra hydration, which I thought was so great. The other two products are YOUTHMUD & BRIGHTMUD and I’m dying to try them both! Have you guys tried them? If so, what did you think of them?!

5. Kate Somerville “Age Arrest” Anti-aging Duo: I’ve been using this stuff for over a year now and I’m totally obsessed. I LOVE Kate Somerville products! I know I am still so young, but I believe it’s never too early to start preventing wrinkles. This anti-wrinkle cream is the best..ever. It is the perfect consistency. It leaves my skin feeling super hydrated, but yet never oily. I only use this cream at night and by the morning my skin feels amazing!

6. NARS Cheek Palette: I really really love NARS blushes and bronzers! I’m dying to get this perfect combination palette in because I love that it includes two gorgeous blushes, a bronzer, and a highlighting blush. The colors look amazing and I can’t wait to play around with it!

7. Voluspa Trio: Who doesn’t love candles?! I LOVE Voluspa candles and have one burning in my room as I type! They always smell so good and fresh. These trio sets are an incredible deal and the perfect opportunity to try these candles out, if you haven’t already. There are a few different yummy scents on sale now so stock up because it’s always a good thing to have extra candles stocked up…and at this price you can’t pass it up! These darling candle sets would also make fab gifts!

So there you have it!!! My favs and must tries ALLLL on sale NOW at Nordstrom for the Early Access card holders and for those who aren’t, mark your calendars and get on it QUICK for when the sale opens to all on July 17th!!!

Musana

   
    
    
    
   
I am so excited to share this fun collab with Musana. Musana is a social enterprise brand that sells jewelry made by women in Uganda. I knew I HAD to share about this awesome company. I absolutely love the cause and how they are employing women, so that they can support their families. SO amazing. You can read more about the company here

Their products are made with upcycled cow horn and locally-sourced clay…so cool, right?! They have some gorgeous and fun new pieces for summer that I just adore! I especially fell in love with the pieces I’m wearing in these pictures – the Jinja necklace & Coastal bracelet, both in pink.  They are beautiful pieces that can be paired with so many different looks. I love how they add a simple pop of color to any outfit. I also just have to mention the GORGEOUS packaging that is shown in my first picture… Like I didn’t want to open because it’s THAT pretty. I also really like how Musana attaches a tag with the picture + name of the exact woman who made your piece. It’s such a personal touch and makes me love the piece even more than I already do! You can read their stories online, which was so fun to read about the two women who made my beautiful pieces.  

I love this company- everything they stand for, their cause, & their products! If you have the chance, definitely check them out. You won’t regret it :) Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone! Xo
