Little Babes | Summer Clothing Capsule for Boys

I am the worst. I've had this post sitting in my drafts for a month, waiting for a pictures to be added to it. UGH. I think it'll still help! Anywho, if your little guys are anything like mine, they've probably spent the summer with no shirts... and no pants as well because that's how we roll around here. Heck, half of the time I can't tell if I'm home or in a nudist colony with these guys.

I know that finding cute clothes for the little guys can be tough so I've compiled my absolute must-haves for a summer/hot weather wardrobe for your little guy - without breaking the bank!

Style | Splurge vs. Steal - The Nordstorm Sale Bestsellers Edition

Okay, guys. Show of hands. Ahem. Who didn't shop the Nordstrom sale? I mean, it was EVERYWHERE, right? I couldn't get away from it! I think just about every single blogger I follow (but get your hustle on, girls!) was posting their faves and super cute OOTD's and I kind of sort of had a small case of FOMO.

I'm going to be real with you all. I couldn't afford it. I couldn't even afford those things on sale - and it's okay. It's also okay if you can afford it. I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't totally drooling over a bunch of cute stuff from the sale though and seeing how I could open a credit card to afford it all (kidding, kidding). In particular, the shoes this year totally grabbed my attention! Bootie bootie rockin' EVERYWHERE - but they kind of looked familiar too. I noticed that a lot of them had cheaper dupes out there. 

You bet your "bootie" I found the hottest ones (even sold out ones) and their cheaper dupe counterparts and put 'em allllll together in one post for y'all.

Beauty | Deck of Scarlet No. 9 w/ Belle Jorden - Swatches + Review

Hey babes! Today, I'm back with another Deck of Scarlet Palette! If you remember, a few month's ago I reviewed one and truthfully, wasn't too impressed (you can check the review out here), so I'm  really excited I was given the opportunity to try them out again.

What's Deck of Scarlett, you might ask? It's kind of like a subscription box where a new palette will be sent straight to your door but instead of every month, this one is sent every two months. Each palette is curated by a popular YouTuber and is $29.95. You can skip a month at any time. They are cruelty free, paraben free and made in the good ol' USA.

Little Babes + Style | Shark Week Brew Ha Ha w/ The Boys

Who's watching Shark Week on Discovery Channel!? My fiance and are pretty obsessed with it and we're pretty excited that our oldest son is into this year as well. My fave has been Guy Fieri's Feeding Frenzy because I appreciate the effort behind the entire idea of the show. Oh! And Cuba's Secret Shark Lair. That was pretty intense. Our youngest doesn't really care unless it's Peppa Pig or The Bumble Nums going into the shark cage, y'know?

Actually, I think a lot of parents would watch that one too. 😝

Throwback Throwdown | Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette vs. Too Faced Loves Sephora Palette

You guys! Welcome to my new series - Throwback Throwdown. I have a collection of older palettes just collecting dust in my closet. You can say I have a slight addiction. Every week, I'll toss up two palettes to choose from and have you guys vote on a palette you'd like to see me use that Thursday. You can also head over to my Instagram highlights and watch this in action!

I'm hoping this series will reignite a love for some older palettes we might've tossed to the side for newer ones. I know I do that often so it'll be nice to give my old ones a little love every once in a while.

This week I had you choose from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette and the Too Faced Loves Sephora 15th Years of Beauty Palette and the results are in - it's a tie!

Beauty | ColourPop Makeup Ur Mind Palette

Anyone snag this little baby yet? It's the ColourPop Makeup Ur Mind Palette ($12) and while it  doesn't seem to be selling off the e-shelves, it's definitely one that you don't want to sleep on. 

ColourPop's very own boss lady, Laura, let us, the fans, create this palette by voting on which shades we'd like to see inside a few months back and then put them all together into one palette! While there are no matte shades, these jewel toned metallics are definitely eye-catching and can be used for some amazing looks!
