Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Because I am the only person to have not yet talked about the Anniversary Sale, here are the few goodies I purchased today! Honestly I felt that some of their deals weren’t in fact that good of deals, but I am happy with the few things I got.

_12604763 BP Open Front Cardigan…I got it in olive green and it is perfect for fall.

4th of July…A Little Late

I know it’s been over a week since the 4th of July, but I had to share some pictures from a shoot Say and I did with a local photographer in Phoenix. We met Alex from @thirdavenuephoto (follow her on IG HERE) at Papago Park in Scottsdale at 6:30pm one night, and it was still 110 degrees.

It was pretty brutal, so we tried to make it as quick as possible. I was so glad Saylor cooperated for at least a solid 20 minutes so we could get some cute shots of her. By the end we were both looking like (literally) hot messes!

Robyn First Setup-15

It was fun to get out and go somewhere I had never been before, and even though it was so hot, it was a beautiful evening! Who else thinks that red, white and blue can be year round? 🙂

Friday Faves!

It’s finally Friday, YAY.  It has been quite a long week, with not a lot of family time (re: none), so I’m so looking forward to 4pm tomorrow when we can spend some time together!  It is so hot here in Arizona, I think Sunday will be spent in the mountains, actually does AZ even have mountains?  Regardless, it will be spent somewhere COOLER.  Here are some of my recent FAVORITE things!

IMG_2751

  1. L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation– this new product is AMAZING! Good luck finding it in stores, I went on a wild goose chase conquering 15 stores to find it, and found the last one in my color, haha. You’d be better off ordering online and using Ulta coupons.

2. ColourPop Lippie Stix in Crumpet– no explanation needed, perfect for summer!

3. Jo Malone Wild Bluebell– you can’t go wrong with Jo Malone!

4. Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake– the best lip balm with hint of color.

5. Hot Iron Holster in White– this item is LIFE CHANGING. It frees up counter space and clings to any flat surface. I need them all over my house.

6. L’Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray

7. Morphe E31– ON SALE FOR ONLY $8!!?? THIS IS A MUST HAVE. Morphe brushes are my FAVE and so affordable. This brush is usually $20, so this is a great deal.

I hope everyone has a fun, safe and relaxing weekend! I would love to hear some current faves of others and also I you LOVE any of mine!

Round Towel Trend

Are you a fan? I am! Some are SO expensive, I have a hard time paying $100+ for something that is basically a photo prop…sorry but that is the truth!

IMG_1899

There are some really beautiful ones out there, and I’m here to share some of my favorites, in a variety of price ranges. My sister in law scored one on sale at Cotton On for only $10 and so kindly gave it to me, so that is the one we have been rocking!

imgres Love this print from Cotton:On. If you sign up for their email letter, you get 30% off, too!

imgres RoundTowelCo claim to be the OG’s here, and this pineapple one has me seeing why!

50358760Marimekko for Target…designer for a good price!

Z THIS PRINT! Everything. A little more pricey, but so gorg! Found HERE.

imgres  If you watch Shark Tank, you’ll recognize this company, SwimZip. LOVING THIS ONE!!

Salty_front_sm_grande  Last but not least, this beauty from Shop Strands. If you care about shopping small, buy from here!

 

Do you care about the round towel trend? If you have one, where did you buy from? We drove home (AZ home) last night from California, so today is our Monday, and boy does it feel like it!

Fool Proof Summer Hair Ideas for your Littles!

If you are like me, you aren’t exactly skilled in the hair department. I have about 2 looks that I rotate for Saylor. And if you have a daughter who is like mine, almost 3 and still doesn’t have long enough hair for one pony tail…this post is for YOU! I experimented with 3 different looks, styles that leave no hair down because it is hot has Haiti here. These are particularly easy, and don’t take more than 5 minutes!

The first is a 3 pony mohawk. Cute and seriously so easy! This one was Saylor’s favorite. All you have to do is divide the hair into 3 horizontal sections, and pony them! Easy, and as cute, as pie.

 IMG_1666 That face, though…haha.

For the second look, all you have to do is join the 3 ponytails from the look above. Instead of keeping each ponytail out as you create a new one, simply add it to your new one.

 IMG_1651

For the last look, start off with a pony on top using about 1/3 of the hair. Then separate the pony in half and create pigtails with the rest of the hair. I’m telling you, you guys, these are SO SIMPLE!

IMG_1658

If you didn’t notice, all 3 of these looks are based off of a single pony on the top of the head. I like to keep Saylor’s hair out of her face as much as possible, especially in the summer when it is so hot. I hope you guys give these a try and let me know what you think!

Robyn

Friday Shopping Haul

I had a pretty good day shopping today…but then again, when isn’t shopping a good thing? I got some sweet deals and I wanted to share! I hit up Nordstrom Rack and Ulta, located conveniently down the street from me! You know I came home and price matched everything, to be sure I’m getting the best price.

Here are my goodies from the Rack…

images I’ve been wanting a neutral colored cross body, and found just what I was looking for in this Kate Spade!

imgres

I found these ADORABLE gold sea wees, size 1, for only $10! No, I’m not pregnant, and they definitely don’t fit Saylor, but I had to have them at that price! The best I could find online was at diapers.com…I found code RMNDIAPERS20, and if you spend more than $49 they’ll ship for free.

imgres

Last is this pair of Riudavets Avarcas for Saylor. They are about 2 sizes too big but I had to get them for her. $19, yes please! Sorry I couldn’t find any good deals online…but see here for the exact pair.

Now of Ulta. I tend to prefer Ulta over Sephora, and here’s why. I love that they carry salon products, drugstore products, high end products…you get it. Ulta also has a way better reward system than Sephora does, and they always have coupons! Today I had $3 off from reward points, as well as a $3.50 off a $15 or more purchase. I’m going to link the exact products from Ulta with no shopping around, because they aren’t even that expensive to begin with.

imgres

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. This has taken me a while to purchase, I have a very strong loyalty to Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. If you have ever used it, you understand. I used my sister’s Butter Bronzer the other weekend and decided I needed to branch out. It smells like the most perfect beach day, and at half the price, you can’t lose.

imgres-2

Batiste Dry Shampoo, tropical scent. I haven’t tried this brand yet, and apparently it is the best!

imgres

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub, Coconut Lime. Who doesn’t love a good sugar scrub in a yummy flavor? I use a scrub every day after I was my armpits, tmi? Sort of weird and maybe gross I know, but I hate how sometimes deodorant can pile up and get weird feeling, so I like to use an exfoliant to get it all off. I also always exfoliate before a spray tan, duh!

Well that covers everything! I’m excited to try out and use all my goodies. What are your favorite things to shop for and do you always look for a good deal? Where are your go to places to shop? I want to hear! Until next time…

Tennis Shoes

I love a good pair of Nike’s. It seems that growing up, the brand of shoes that you mostly wore, sticks with you. I have friends who prefer Adidas and Asics, but I have always gone with the Nike’s. I have especially loved the casual, sporty shoe trend lately. I really need a pair of their Roshe’s…I’m surprised I don’t own one or 3 pairs yet. But I can’t decide on a color! HELP! Here are my top faves, and please tell me which you like best!

nike-roshe-one-womens Plain white, always a good choice.

511882_094_P1 Classic black and white.

shopping Pink…because PINK! Use code LKS16546 for 15% off!

14059618812575815114 Grey goes with everything, so I really like these.

3060819-p-MULTIVIEWLoving these white ones with the silver swoop!

704927_300_P1 Finishing the selections out with this pretty blue.

I have also realized that there are a few different kinds of Roshe’s. The Roshe Flyknits are the most expensive kind, and there are also Roshe One’s and Roshe Run’s. Take your pick! These also run about a half size big, so size down a little, and they will stretch out (thanks Brooke!).

Be sure to leave a comment and tell me your favorite color and if you have a pair already tell me what color you have!

Robyn

 

PS — I am not the best with grammar and punctuation, so bare with me! Haha I am learning, and trying to be more eloquent and thought out here on my blog than I am in texting! 🙂

 

 

 

Summer Shoe Trends!

After browsing the Internet for shoes, like I do multiple times a week, I thought I should hit up trusty Google to see what the actual “trends” of the upcoming summer of 2016 is. Don’t be mistaken, I’m no fashion guru who follows trends and knows what is in season, past season, you get the idea. Generally I like what I like, and wear what I want when I want. I was impressed with some things I found, and am here to share my faves.

–BLOCK HEELS…love these ones from Asos, on sale too!

image1xxl

–FUN FLATS…this I can be into. Colors, patterns, poms, whichever you please! Loving these from ModCloth.

1b522d0192bd4f6dc3a32b4a89d0e4fe

–MULES…I’ll be the first to admit I am not a fan! I don’t know what it is about them but they are something I most likely wouldn’t wear. If I had to choose a pair that I absolutely had to wear, it would be these from Dolce Vita.

2675_black_l

–SHOWER SHOES/SLIDES…LOL is all I can say. Adidas is making a big comeback and I’m not mad about it. I don’t know if I have the guts or style to pull them off though. Zappos had the best size selection!

img-thing

–SNEAKERS…always a YES! When aren’t sneakers in style? I’m loving the New Balance trend that has been popular for a while now. I own this pair and love them more and more each time I wear them.

46ccb3fa24cd847d21b6da15f2b72d05

–LACE UP/GLADIATOR SANDALS…If you learn anything from this post, I need it to be this. GET THESE SANDALS. The end, goodbye, that is all for now, mic drop. Zara does it again.
