Lulu Loves

-------DETAILS-------




I spied this color combo recently in a magazine and loved it.  Yellow is so summer and beautiful.  I love the bright pink heels with this fun striped skirt.  These heels would also look divine!  I love how the necklace and clutch (under $60) pull the look together.  It gives a summer garden look perfect for a brunch or wedding.  I also found this Topshop dress which is super cute and just $68!

Don't forget about the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale.  There are still great pieces to be found :)

Thanks for reading, have a great day!

Beauty Talk

-------DETAILS-------


Hello!  I hope that you had a safe and wonderful holiday.  We had a fun-filled and busy day full of swimming, picnicking, jumping (the nuggets, not me), and of course delicious food :)

Today I'm sharing some beauty products with you that I love!  First off I want to say that it's SO important to properly take care of your skin (everywhere, not just your face).  Now that summer is here and we'll be out in the sun, please use sunscreen.  Our lives are busy, mine included.  I know I'm tired and ready to hit the hay as soon as my work is finished.  That's why I actually wash my face and do my nightly beauty routine before I even eat dinner!  

I've been using Murad products for a while, but received these about 4 weeks ago.  The step-by-step products are fabulous and I'm seeing wonderful results.  There is a 3 step process, which is super easy, and each product is labeled with 1, 2, or 3.  

For my night time routine I use Step 1: the Murad cleanser in the evening, cleansing my face twice.  First with just my finger tips, the second time with my Clarisonic.  I then apply Step 2: the Intensive Age-Diffusing Serum and let it sink in for a few minutes.  While I'm letting it soak into my skin, I use the Renewing Eye Cream.  Lastly I apply Step 3: the Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Moisturizer.  Let me tell you, my skin is so smooth and silky!  Even my Ella B commented saying, "Momma your face is so smooth!" :)

In the morning I cleanse my face with Cetaphil.  It's gentle since I'm not wearing make up I simply want to refresh my skin.  I then start with Step 2: the Intensive Age-Diffusing Serum and the Renewing Eye Cream while the serum is sinking into my face.  Step 3 is the Age Balancing Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30!  There are many days where this is it and I don't wear make up.  I actually try not to apply make up daily as I want my face to breath.  When I do apply make up I have been blown away by the Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield.  I use a very thin amount, 1 pump.  I wait a few minutes to let this dry before applying my primer, foundation, and make up.  I have seen my skin become a beautiful canvas for my make up.  It blurs the fine lines, and not so fine lines, around my forehead and between my brows.  This also has Broad Spectrum SPF 30!  You can see all the products below, I highly recommend them!  



Thanks for poppin' by.  Have a beautiful day!

A big thank you to Murad for providing these products for review.

Happy Memorial Day!  I know we're all busy and having fun celebrating the unofficial start to the summer, but I'm planning on spending some time in prayer.  I'm praying and thanking God for the men and women who serve or have served our country.  Not just these men and women but their families who spend many days, months, and years without their loved ones.  To you who serve and your family, I thank you SO VERY much!  We are truly blessed in country.  I think we forget just how much we have and I don't just mean the material things.  We are blessed to be in the land of the free.  I've spent the last week in much prayer for our country and leaders.  It was wonderful to wrap up this time of prayer with Memorial Day.  How fitting!

Today I'm about stripes (and wind!!!).  It was so windy when we were trying to shoot this outfit.  So sorry about the crazy hair :).  I love this shirt and knew instantly I wanted to pair these sleek wedges with it.  Both of these striped beauties are on sale :)  Not just my shirt and shoes, but all this gorgeous jewelry!  Buy more and save more with the Julie Vos Memorial Day sale.  I purchases 3 of these bracelets and this ring.  Keeping the look crisp with white jeans, the cream bag, and my hair straight brings the look together.

Summer Weddings

jcrew jumpsuit

-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------




TGIF!  Wow, the holiday weekend is finally here.  We have a lot of fun things planned with the family including swimming, bar b ques, and picnics (you can see it involves a lot of eating :).

When I saw this jumpsuit I was immediately taken with it.  I mistakenly waited before buying it (I had my eye on the jade), but it was gone before I knew it!  But I have to say the wisteria color is amazing too and just perfect for a family summer wedding.  I thought these garden earrings were a perfect compliment to the outfit.  The rest was simple including my go-to leopard clutch.
