Spring Wishlist

spring wishlist

I could not be more ready for spring. I think it rained the entire month of January in Portland, lol. I know we’re probably not going to get a proper spring, but all of my spring picks will transition straight into summer, which is just how I like it. I gravitate toward white in the warmer months every year, but this year I’m really excited to bring in nudes and creams to pair with it. I’m over here dreaming of white monochrome outfits (probably not the most child friendly).  I love seeing what my favorite bloggers are loving/buying for the up and coming season, so I thought I’d share what I’ve been eyeing lately.

10 Most Purchased Items By You in January

January Favorites

Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. I’m still getting into the swing of things over here with my new work schedule. I am spending less time on blog posts and more time on Instagram Stories. That’s where you are and want to see content according to analytics. I still want to post here at least twice a week, but still trying to figure out the whole time management thing. In the meantime, I’m sharing the top 10 items purchased by YOU in January. Enjoy!

The 411 on My Petite-Friendly Jeans, Pants, Leggings, & Joggers

When I asked what you wanted to see more of in 2020, petite fashion was at the top of your list. I’ve done quite a few posts on petite styling, but I haven’t done a roundup of petite pieces in my closet yet. I thought I’d start with petite pants. I’m sharing all my petite and petite-friendly jeans, pants, joggers, leggings, and lounge pants. I typically always look for petite bottoms, with the exception of jeans because I tend to cut the hems. But if you’re not finding what you’re looking for in petite sizes, you can always look at regular sizes and check the inseams. Many cropped pieces can work as long as the inseam is around 24″-26″. I will do a more in-depth blog post on what to look for when shopping for petites, but thought I’d share my trick when it comes to bottoms. Enjoy!

Cleen Beauty Favorites

Cleen Beauty Walmart

In 2019 I switched to mostly all clean beauty and makeup products and in 2020 I hope to continue this trend and share more of what I’m loving with you. I recently teamed up with Walmart to try their new Cleen Beauty line and I’m so excited to share my feedback. This beauty line is effective, clean, inclusive for everyone, and it’s all under $10. They created 5 unique regimens made to mix and match, so you can choose a formula that works for you.

Everyday Wear for Men & Kids

Nordstrom Men's

I’m so excited to feature my 2 favorite people on the blog today! While we spend a lot of time together as a family of 3, Mike and Harper spend the majority of the work week together. They give me time to work alone and get a lot of things done, which has been so helpful in growing Crystalin Marie. They’ll run errands, do fun activities, play in the house together, go to the park, or just explore. This was something we talked about before having kids, and while it took some time to finally get here, we wouldn’t have it any other way. I love their bond and seeing them both grow together.

Garmin Vivomove watch

I’m so excited to kick off the New Year with Garmin! I’ll be teaming up with them over the next 3 months to share how I use my new Garmin Vivomove Luxe smartwatch. This is my first ever smart watch and I have to say, it’s already so much fun. I love that the Vivomove Luxe is an elegant hybrid smartwatch that combines the traditional look of an analog watch with the essential smart features you count on to keep up with your busy life.

2019 Year in Review

2019 Year in Review

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing holiday. This is one of my favorite posts to write, every year. When I finally sit, jot everything down, look at old photos, and reflect. Now that I’m a mom, remembering everything that happens is a year is proving to be very difficult, lol. I’m really considering writing in a journal in 2020… that way I can look back at what happened and how I was feeling in those moments and not just be on a struggle bus to remember. We have come so far since 2018 and it’s just crazy to think we’re only growing and getting better every year. 2019 was hands down the best year of our lives and I’m sharing the 4 major themes and other highlights from the year.

My Top 4 Must-Shop After-Christmas Sales

Best after Christmas sales

Happy Thursday! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I’m probably going to be popping into the blog every so often for the next couple of weeks until I get back into the swing of work, but I did want to share some awesome after-Christmas sales. There’s a ton of sales going on, but I’m only sharing my top 4 (don’t want to overwhelm you). The main sale I want to speak on is the Everlane Choose What You Pay Event. These sales are few and far between and they’re actually having a FINAL SALE on some items, which are discounted even steeper. You know how much I wear and love Everlane and I know many of you are on the same page. This is a great sale to take advantage of – classic pieces you’ll love and wear for years.
