Instagram Favorites...Round Up and Recap of August 2017
Happy end of September...It's been an amazing month of pre-fall...Pumpkin Spice Iced Lattes, Football Season...Just escaped the 100 degree temps, cooler mornings have just started (meaning not 100 degrees at 6 am), and the holidays are getting closer!! Yay, this is when I start to get soooo high on life...as I'm super obsessed about the start of fall!! There is so much to look forward to with the holiday season approaching, and decorating my home for our family, and starting and continuing traditions for my children. Oh my gosh, seriously typing this, I'm getting so excited and full of energy!
The only traveling we did in August was to Huntington Beach to celebrate our dear friends baby shower. I lived in Cali for almost a decade, so it always feels like home to me...I love the energy there, and we stayed in this absolutely fabulous hotel Casa Madrona. Seriously, we need to go back again soon, just to stay there. We had a bunch of commitments, so we didn't get that much relaxing time, not till the last day, which we spent at the beach, and had a blast. Gosh I love traveling with my babies...and waking up all together, and being just us 4 all day...it is the ultimate!! Although, I definitely need to work on my vacation planning and scheduling. My husband and I are both so busy, that we are more last minute, pick up and go travelers...which is so much more difficult with children...so we still have much to improve on there.
August was the start of some big changes with our family, and my commitment to my blog. After 18 months of seeing it on my to do list, we finally connected with the loveliest woman, and hired a part time nanny for the children. The thought had literally paralyzed me for over 2 years, and well, the timing was right, and we had the best connection from a dear friend. I just knew in my whole heart she was the one...and seriously I just love her already...my babies love her, we love her...we are blessed. Trying to get back on a work schedule, having been a full time stay at home momma these past two and a half years...is so hard for me. I'm such a non-planner. I'm still staying up till 1-2 am working, which is what we were trying to fix when hiring help...but I'm working on trying to be more productive and really utilize our lovely nanny. I'll go into this more in another post, but the fact that I went to the dentist solo, or without having to have a mini anxiety attack about who to ask for help, so that I could go to the dentist, is beyond anything I could have imagined. I have so much to say here...So I will write a separate post on this.
Below are my Instagram favs from August...I know...so late...I'm sorry, and still trying to adjust....but they are here for future reference....and I linked what I could, sometimes things sell out, so I try to find a similar item(s) for you.
All the Love, Kim
Below each picture will either be a bold pink word, which is the link to that item, or a scroll feed for options etc.
One of my favorite everyday looks
Top: runs big, size down, XS, Jeans run big , size down, Size 4, booties TTS
Strobe cream is everything, I use it either on top of my foundation, and under my concealer. The Studio Fix Fluid is great for medium coverage, goes on easily, but doesn't hide my redness through a workout. Great for less hectic days, when wanting to wear less makeup...or if you just have normal skin and not rosacea.
This is my new favorite lippie / Mac Cosmetics Candy Box!! Love THIS lipglass...the CLEAR LIPGLASS is great for over any lipstick. Loving THIS eyeshadow Primer , I hget why it has such a following...comes with a wand to apply to your lids, which is fantastic! and THIS MAC Palette...(just missing a shimmer within...but such great fall colors!! Not linking the liner, because this one I didn't love..but my favorite one from them is HERE
OH my gosh, Hartley is such a nugget..I must tell her 100 or more times a day how much I love her...She is on a kissing spree too...and I am getting random little puckers all day everyday..be still my heart!
Oh my goodness I LOVE these sheet masks...The HYDRATING Face Mask is exactly that...and the AGE DEFYING Face Mask feels so great after as well...depending on your needs, either one is a winner / The AGE Defying HAND Masks are Incredible...that's what you give your bestie, or anyone in need of a really lovely treatment at home! All of these give you that spa feeling at home and are some of my favorites!!
I've been crushing over this brand for years! One of my absolute favorites and Coordinates Collection's products are so well made. These are the Coordinates of my Wedding in Riviera Maya
Seriously the cutest bathing suit, and love this as a bodysuit as well!!
We moved this girl out of her crib and into her big girl size queen bed, and everything went off without the slightest problem...really! I was secretly regretting this, but trying to show a brave face and pretend like everything was amazing and fun and exciting...luckily she picked up on only that energy!! Power of confidence as a mom to your littles
Absolutely love this cleansing tool from Bio-Therapeutic...I use this more than my Clarisonic Mia(but that is good too) I love the soft brush and triangle design of the head, allowing me to clean all around my nose and lips easier and more effectively
THE BEST DAY AT STINTON BEACH ...THIS MORING WE TOTALLY HAD THE BLUES, AND DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE THAT AFTERNOON, HAVING NOT HAD A CHANCE TO GO TO THE BEACH. AT BREAKFAST WE CHANGED OUR FLIGHTS, ADDED ANOTHER NIGHT TO OUR HOTEL, AND THAT MEANT WE GOT TO SPEND THE DAY AT THE BEACH...WE NEEDED THIS EXTRA TIME, JUST US 4...I ABSOLUTELY LOVE VACATIONING AND HAVING MY FAMILY TO MYSELF...IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO ME...LOVED THIS EXTRA SPECIAL DAY TOGETHER
This jacket was my favorite purchase from the Nordstrom sale..and has been so hard to find..it keeps coming in and out of stock...make more already...it's amazing!
