Elly and Grace

This post in partnership with Elly and Grace, but thoughts and opinions are my own

Over the last few months I have become friends with an awesome group of women through the Instagram community. One of these women is Brenna, the owner of Elly and Grace. We have bonded over our love of glitter, graphics, and face masks! Brenna designs one of a kind graphics that inspire and uplift others. I reached out to her to see if she would want to collaborate on a design. Thankfully, she said “YES”!

I knew that I wanted my graphic to be about coffee! If you’ve been following along with me at all, you know my obsession with it and my need for survival. So, this graphic pretty much sums up my life. Lol.  It turned out SO well! I love the elegant, yet simple font that was used. One of the things I love most about this T-shirt is how COMFORTABLE it is. As a mom who is constantly on the go, that is exactly what I am looking for. I love that you can wear it with some leggings, or dress it up a little by adding a statement necklace and cute cardi.

I had spotted these totes on Elly and Grace’s insta page, and I just knew that I had to scoop one up for myself! Blush is one of my current obsessions, and that on top of the canvas is jus so beautiful. I have gotten to the point, where I don’t really have a use for Kennedy’s diaper bag. But, because I hadn’t found anything else to replace it with, I was still lugging that , ANNNDDD my jumbo size purse around everywhere with me. Now, I just throw a few necessities into this tote, and I’m good to go. The depth in this tote is AMAZING! I’m able to carry my wallet, iPad, magazines etc; all while still fitting in snacks, diapers and toys for Kennedy. It has seriously been a game changer for me.

Finally, I asked Brenna to create a design with this quote on it. I AM OBSESSED! What girl doesn’t love a little bit of glitter? Kennedy will be rocking this onesie all summa long!

I had such a great time working with Elly and Grace! I love being able to connect and be creative with other Boss Babes!

Many of these shades are SUPER affordable, like under 10 bucks! Yaaass!

10 Things I learned From Christmas 2016

Now that Christmas is over, I would like to share a few things I have learned from my first Christmas as a full-time working mom.

1. Start Christmas shopping in February. Scratch that, January.

2. You are NOT Martha Stewart. Don’t volunteer to bring anything other than the pre-made potato salad, or a cheese plate from the grocery store.

3. Even thought it pains me to say this, online shopping is your BFF.

4. Buy all things wrapping related from Home Goods/ Marshall’s/ TJ Maxx. They have super cute stuff, for about half the price of other stores.

5. Don’t wait for the stocking stuffers to go on sale, just buy the damn things.

Gift Guide for Makeup Mavens

1. The Sephora Collection Glitter Happy Brush set: I just CAN’T say no to glitter, especially during the holidays. Is there a more special way to show someone how dazzling they are to you, than with this limited edition brush set. It comes with a gorgeous, sparkling brush stand. Plus, the brushes themselves are so sleek and stunning!

2. The Matte Chocolate Chip Palette by Two Faced: I actually purchased this for my self on Black Friday. ( I couldn’t help it.) The all matte pallet has perfectly pigmented shadows. This would be the perfect gift to give to someone who is just starting out in makeup. Or, as a bundled gift; adding in a few other items for a complete gift basket.

3. Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask: This would be the perfect gift to get someone that you want to pamper! I’ve gotten this a Sephora sample now a few times, and I am in LOVE. It smells so delicious! I love the way my skin glows after using this mask. This item does have a higher price point, but it is definitely worth a little extra mullah.
