I’m always so excited when spring arrives! There’s something about it that wakes us all up and makes my whole house a brighter place. My boys want to be outside running around, blowing bubbles and playing with the gazillion baby lizards that have hatched. It just makes them happier! And these are some of the fun things that I’m loving (OK, obsessing about) and are making Mommy a happier girl this spring!
Summer Song Dress from Cute And Comfy Boutique: A sweet college friend recently opened this online boutique, and I couldn’t wait to check it out. I was hooked as soon as I saw the first page. Everything is pretty and feminine and flowy — a perfect combination of style and comfort (yesssss!). I was so excited to get this dress to wear on Easter, and it will be my go-to dress for upcoming occasions this spring and summer. And, guess what? As a sweet treat for my 39ish Lifers, you can use the special code 39ISHLIFE at checkout and save 10% off your order! Happy Spring!
Wide-Brim Panama Hat from Old Navy: I’ve always been a baseball cap girl, and still love them for casual days and sporting events, but I’m currently enamored with this panama hat. It completely steps up your OOTD … and, bonus, it covers up your “I haven’t showered since Tuesday” hair. Win-Win. Find it (and other similar options) at Oldnavy.com.
LipSense Lip Color/Gloss: I’ve been hearing good things about this product on social media and finally had the chance to try it out. LOVE. IT. I’m wearing the Caramel Apple in the pic below, and I’m going to get Roseberry next. It’s completely different than any lip product I’ve ever used. You start with dry lips, apply 3 layers of color (you’ll feel a little tingle as they settle), then apply the gloss. Voila! You have killer color ALL DAY. Seriously. One less thing to think about as we run through our day … yes, please. Jump in Serena’s Facebook group and see more colors, tips, specials, etc. 🙂
“You Made Me a Mother” Children’s Book: “I realized that I would spend my life doing things to make you happy. And that would make me happy.” Cue the tears. Whew. My little sister gave this to me and it’s just THE sweetest book about becoming a mommy, and I cry every single time I read it. Big, fat, wonderful, happy tears.
Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream: This is all I’ve been wearing on my skin this spring. No foundation, no powder. It’s lightweight, but makes everything look smoother and more even-toned. At 39ish, I need that, but I don’t want anything thick and heavy. This does the trick.
Sling Back Bag from Thirty-One Gifts: I’ve been using a small crossbody purse for months and needed a little more room, but liked the ease of wearing a crossbody. Enter the Sling Back Bag. It can be worn over a shoulder like a conventional purse, but I wear it across my body so I have full use of my arms and hands for wrangling four little boys. 🙂
“Trolls” movie and soundtrack: Yep, I admit it. I looove this movie. My boys and I rented it from Redbox a few months ago, kept it an extra day so we could watch it again, then went to Toys “R” Us that weekend and bought it. My mom gave Finley the soundtrack for his 4th birthday a few weeks ago and we have listened to it in the car nonstop. Cute movie + Justin Timberlake = Done.
What fun things are you obsessing about this season? I hope they make your days easier, brighter and happier!
Love (and treat yourself to something happy) more,
