This is currently my favorite way to style my hair.  I am loving my new curling wand!!!  It gives a loose, messy wave that is sexy and not to uptight.

Korres sent me this amazing package.  So far I’m already obsessed with the lip butter, shower gel and body butter.  If you have dry skin and need extra moisture you will love these products!  The shower gel is gentle and still gets you very clean.  The body butter smells amazing and is so moisturizing.  My son who has very bad eczema and most products irritate his skin loves these body butters.  And the lip butter is so amazing!  I put it on several times a day and my lips are so much softer.

I’ve been wearing my makeup more natural lately.  I’ve been really enjoying not spending as much time doing my makeup.  This lipstick is the perfect peachy pink for spring and summer.  It works with a natural or glam makeup look.  If you have never tried Dior lipstick you must!  They feel like the most luxurious body butter on your lips.

I went shopping at Loft to find some spring dresses.  I love wearing dresses whenever the weather is warm enough.  Especially ones that are easy to put on and comfortable to wear.  They currently are having a sale, 40% off everything!

We have been having warmer days so we are able to walk to pick up Sofia from school.  This is one of my favorite things to do.  It’s so cute how excited Caleb is to go pick up his sister.  Then on the walk home Caleb and Sofia walk next to each other and talk to whole time.  So cute!!  I don’t want them to grow up :)

We went to the movies this week.  We saw Cinderella, it was amazing!  The story is amazing and so is the fashion!  It is very touching, I teared up several times.  You must go see it!  When I go to the movies I like to be comfortable.  So I wore my faux leather joggers and a comfy sweater.

The easiest way to look glam is natural makeup, lashes, a bold lip and big wavy hair.  I just started using Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector.  I apply is under my concealer and it works like back lighting.  It brightens up the under eye area and gives a glowing from within look.  This is my most favorite product I have found in a long time!
