Sorry in advance for the picture overload there were so many I love. I have gotten many questions lately and requests to tag my children’s clothing. Before I started the fashion blog I had a private family blog with so many amazing memories of my little squad. I absolutely love being able to document my children. So, I am still focusing on fashion but I will be weaving my kiddos into my posts a little more.

So onto our outfits, J. Crew and Gap Kids for the win. I am beyond obsessed with Gap Kids for both my girls and Beckett. They have the cutest 4th of July stuff too.I love that the girl’s Gap Kids dresses and Beckett’s Ralph Lauren shirt can be worn after the 4th of July too!


Who’s outfit do you like the most?

Getting ready, part 1 (make up)…

DSC_0503DSC_0515 DSC_0504 DSC_0508 DSC_0512 DSC_0517DSC_0511

Robe: Yummie c/o

Today I’m sharing my make up must haves. But since this is a fashion blog I need to talk about what I wear while I get ready, of course! In the winter I love getting ready in a big, long robe and in the summer a short, light weight robe, like this Yummie one. I love the super-soft pima cotton and the waste tie to keep the rob snug around my body.  Yummie products are also sold at Bloomingdales and Nordstrom. I hate getting ready in the clothes I am wearing because enviably I spill make up and always hairspray while I am curling my hair. I also love a good robe to throw over my pjs in the morning while I am getting the kids ready. Basically every girl need a lightweight summer robe in their life! Ok, and on to my top five make up must haves….

Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked2 Palette is the only eyeshadow you will ever need. So many of my friends own this pallets and swear by it I had to buy it. Six months later I wear it from daily looks to dressed up, formal looks. The shades range from shimmer to sparkle to mattes, basically covering everything you need. You can find it at either Nordstrom or Sephora.

Blush: Nars Organism has been called iconic and a universally flattering shade. I have used this blush for the past 6 years and could not love it more. I have tried so many other blushes in between but time and time again come back to this one. It gives a sheet, perfect pinky-peach flush look. Its sold at Sephora

Eye Lash Curler: My eye lashes are very straight and almost non existent looking until curled. Revlon Eye Lash Curler has been my go-to for years. I have tried other more expensive ones from Sephora and MAC but have always been underwhelmed and completely. You can purchase it is here for $3.99.

Dark Circles: I am obsessed with the Maybeline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer! I saw this one of my favorite beauty YouTubers a few months back and it has changed my tired eyes to look awake. I use this to highlight and contour, below my eyes, chin, above my lip and middle of my forehead. Best part, you can purchase at Ulta Beauty for $8.99 which is a fraction of comparable products.

Blender: The one and only Beauty Blender is the magic for that air brushed effect. It costs $20.00 from Sephora and is worth every penny. I have also tried the less expensive knock off versions but they are stiff and do not have the unique shape and exclusive material like the beauty blender. I love how it provides streak-free application with minimum product waste. I find when I use my brushes I have waste a lot more product. It can be used with primers, foundations, powders, and cream blushes, serving as a true one stop shop product.

We snapped these pictures over the weekend at a cute little festival in downtown Willow Glen. I LOVE any fair, festival or parade but wearing the right outfit (especially the right shoe!) is a must. These Gladiator Sandals are the perfect flat and comfortable, plus they are under $25 from Target. Nordstrom has several similar options as well. My lacy peplum top is the perfect piece to dress up or down and beyond comfortable.

I’m a girl who loves a deal. When I can buy something on sale or discounted it just feels better. I have had my eye on a few designer handbags over the last several months but as we all know stores like Louis Vuitton or Prada or Celine do not put their popular bags on sale, ever. That is when I turned to the internet and came across Trendlee, a premier destination for pre-owned luxury handbags online.

I am partnering with them today because I love how high they set the bar for quality. Trendlee only sells items that are in excellent to very good condition. This LV purse is in absolute mint condition, with no indication of being previously owned. AND it is almost 2k off the retail price! I also like that they guarantee authenticity and even provide a third-party authenticity certificate from experts. Finally, Trendlee also offer returns, whatever the reason.

Have you had your eye on a bag forever but don’t want to pay full retail? Head over to Trendlee and use code “BRUNETTEAMBITIONS” for 5% off!
