What To Get Mom?

Hello Beautifuls! Mother’s Day is this Sunday and even though we should always feel special and make our moms feel special, it’s nice to be extra spoiled and pampered for a day. Speaking of being spoiled, I have some ideas on some gifts that moms would love. Some are on my wishlist but, my wishlist can get a bit pricey so, I’ll be sharing some more affordable gifts.

So let’s start with my wishlist. They range from a mug to luxury. First on the list is a mug from Etsy. It’s super cute and funny. As, a mother some of us don’t really get much sleep. Mainly because we stay up late getting stuff cleaned and getting some time to yourself. Even though, we stay up late it doesn’t mean we get to sleep in so, we have to wake up when we have a toddler in your face at 6am. So, we may have some dark circles and bags under our eyes and this mug is super relatable.

Isn’t it the cutest? You can find it here The Bags Under My Eyes Are Louis Vuitton .

Following item on my wishlist is from Melsy Illustrations, it’s the cutest drawing of a mother and son. You can customize the color of skin and hair. It’s so cute and perfect for a mother of a boy. She also has a mom and daughter drawing too.

It’s just so adorable and a great piece to add to any work space or home. Click here to find it. Melsy Illustration .

Every mom needs a little something special. The last thing on my wish list is this simple Tiffany’s ring. The way it can be made special is Tiffany & Co. can engrave anything you want on the inside. It could be the kids initials or birthday, basically anything you want.

Get this simple yet iconic ring at Tiffany & Co. Ring. .

Moving onto some ideas that aren’t on my wishlist but, are still nice to get.

A simple little painting from the kids would be a great gift for the grandmas in their lives. Even if it’s just a hand print it will be cherished.

One can always appreciate a beautiful bouquet of flowers. A GOOD breakfast in bed. A nice dinner with the family. These last one not one penny needs to be spent and they are letting mom sleep in, and when I say sleep in , I mean take the kids out of the house. I don’t know about other moms but, I know even if I want to sleep in I’m always listening on what’s going on in the living room. So, take the kids out of the house. Maybe do the dishes. Put in a load of laundry and put it away. These little things would mean the world to a mom. Am I right, mamas?

Well, I hope all you mamas have a great Mother’s Day!

March Favorites!

Hello beautifuls! I can’t believe I’m telling y’all about my March Favorites already, time is sure flying by. I honestly don’t mind time flying by, cause the faster the months go, the faster I can go back home.

My first favorite is obviously my girls trip with my nugz. It was so much fun and it was a very much needed mini vacation. Full of cute outfits, shopping, and amazing places, I think I’m going to need a girls trip a lot more often.

On that trip I bought the cutest charm ever! I’ve been wearing my bracelet ever since I put the charm on it. I’m obsessed!

Moving on to the my next fav this month, is this new band and cover I got for my Apple Watch. Bought both things for $14 at target.

It wouldn’t be my monthly favorites if there wasn’t a little bit of makeup in the mix. The first product is a repurchase, I’ve had the Too Faced foundation before but, I took a break from it for a while. I have fallen in love with it again. Next, is a new item and probably my favorite thing to use in my makeup routine. This Too Faced Primer Powder, it’s like pure magic in a bottle. It smooths my face and makes my makeup look flawless. This is something I will purchase always. I don’t know what I was doing without this. Last item is a red Anastasia Beverly Hill liquid lipstick. I’m pretty obsessed with reds recently, I feel like a hot mama with a red lip. It’s never a bad thing to feel good.

In my Luxury haul I posted last month I talked about my Chanel Megan Hess book, it’s the perfect coffee table book so, I couldn’t help myself to buy another. The addition is the New York fashion illustration book. It has amazing illustrations, she is truly talented. I will for sure be buying more of these beautiful books.

Finally, my forever favorite candle from bath and body works was sent by my mom. The packaging is pink and it smells amazing. It couldn’t be anymore perfect. If you ever waltz into the store I high suggest you take a sniff at this yummy candle.

Thank you for reading!

All Things Lux.

Hello Beautifuls and Happy Monday! May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short. Haha. I’m starting this amazing Monday with a little luxury haul and thought it would be cool to share some of my goodies with y’all. I don’t know about you but, Whether it be from the dollar store to luxury. I love me a good haul. So, let’s get on to the good stuff.

For the longest time, I’ve been playing it safe when it comes to makeup. What does that mean? It’s means all I would buy and feel comfortable in was nude or pinkish lipsticks. But, ever since Christmas time when I took the risk and tried a bold red lip, I’ve been hooked. So, it was inevitable that I would have to add a classic Chanel red lipstick to my collection. I’m obsessed with this, it’s moisturizing and bold. I love it! There’s a shade of red for every girl.

Following the Chanel love is this Megan Hess Fashion Book. Megan Hess has the most beautiful books on fashion. They are definitely something to add to either your library, coffee table, it’s just a beautiful addition to anything. I will for sure be buying more of these books. But for now I just have the Coco Chanel.

Moving on to a very heart breaking little haul. This was a bittersweet purchase, I just can’t believe such an iconic store is no longer around. I remember watching Sex and The City and seeing those iconic brown and white stripes or for more relatable reference, hearing the name on Gossip Girl. Okay, enough of the sadness on to the glorious stripes.

Ugh! Even the shipping boxes had the stripes. I was very happy that I was able to get a few things from Bendels before it closed. Of course, I had to get something that had the famous brown and white stripes, and since I’m obsessed with phones case and small wallets, I couldn’t help myself to get these two things from good ol Henri Bendels.

And finally, the last thing is of course another wallet and phone case. Haha. I know it’s addiction. So here’s my new Kate spade wallet with matching phone case. This is the coolest thing ever. The phone can attach to the wallet and not fall out. And being a mom, I sometimes don’t want to carry my handbag around so this is perfect for a quick trip to the grocery store or daiso. Haha.

Valentines Day Outfits.

Hello Beautifuls! Valentine’s Day is 6 days away, I know romance shouldn’t only be one day but, it’s nice to have a reason to get dolled up and go out. So, today I’m giving y’all some ideas on outfits you can wear for this special romantic day. I will probably be celebrating Cupid’s day with my amazing husband before or after the day. Places will be extremely busy this day and being as we are in a foreign country and we aren’t very adventurous with food, I’m pretty sure the places we like will be packed. So, let’s get into some of these outfit that if you check my last post on makeup looks you will see which makeup look goes with the outfit.

This outfit is for a more chill and relaxed date. Probably the outfit that I will be wearing since I have to be running after a toddler, who has the quickest little feet ever! Even though, you gotta be able to chase a toddler doesn’t mean you can’t get all cute and dolled up. Here I’m wearing my favorite pair of jeans I bought at the MCX and my favorite bodysuit, also from the MCX. It’s a little chilly here in Japan. So, I topped it off with this pure cardigan from Forever 21 and my grey Ugg’s. Warm and cute.

Next outfit is probably one of my faves. Sweater and skirt are from H&M and can still be found online, btw. The knee high boots are from Target. This is super girly and still quite warm and somewhat comfortable to be able to be able to chase a toddler. This is a very Blair Waldorf inspired look and I’m here for it.

The last look is very sexy and boobalicious. This is absolutely not a toddler chasing approved outfit. But, dang I was feeling myself in this outfit. You can’t go wrong with a little black dress. The dress is from Kenneth Cole and the Cardigan is from a store here in Japan called GU. Completed the look with some heels I got from target and some pearls. So here is my glam bam sexy look.

So, there are my three Valentines Day outfit ideas. Which one was your favorite?

What I Got For My 25th Birthday.

Hey there beautifuls! As, y’all read from the title, I turned 25 on the 14th of this month. I thank God everyday for blessing me for another year. Each year I learn and grow as a person, whether it be as a wife, a mom, or an overall person. I’m extremely blessed to have been surrounded with my beautiful little family and great friends. They really made this birthday a great one, if it wasn’t for them I probably would’ve been in a ball crying and searching for the best eye cream there is. I know I’m just being dramatic but, in 5 years I’ll be 30, like whattt!?!? I know I’m going to blink and those years will fly on by. By then, I’ll get it together and just think about being “Thirty, Flirty, & Thriving.” Unlike the movie I won’t go back to being 13 years old with just a little bit of pixie dust. But, I sure don’t want to go back to being 13, UGH! Those are some cringeworthy years. Am I right? Anyway, let’s get to what I got for my birthday.

This year I was extremely spoiled by my husband, my parents, my friends, and myself. My amazing husband was not able to be here for my birthday, it was the first time he missed my birthday, but you know that’s the life of the military wife. He went all out like he always does and bought me a Louis Vuitton wallet to match my speedy. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I’m so grateful for having a husband this amazing. Now, onto what I spoiled myself with. I felt like this year was a treat yourself year and that’s exactly what I did. I was able to spoil myself and I bought two things. A Louis Vuitton phone case and something that was on my dream board for sometime, what is it you may ask? Well, they are gold Chanel earrings! I’m so excited that I was able to buy these for myself. I mean look how gorgeous they are!

The next things I’ll show y’all, my parents and friends got me. My parents were sweet enough to send me a bunch of fall decor and a Longchamp, the decor isn’t pictured, because I was too excited and put them up. My bosses gave me a Fitbit, which I was so excited about, I have an Apple Watch but I just forget to charge it everyday and I don’t have to charge the Fitbit for a couple days. Yay! My nugget bestie kept me from having a meltdown about not having my hubby with me for my birthday, she really kept me together. She took me to get a cardio workout by shopping and gave me the cutest gift. She took me back to my Claire’s days and gave me a BFF koala necklace and some yummy macaroons from our favorite bakery. Finally, my amazing, Disney loving, my Serena to my Blair friend, sent me this cute backpack that is very popular in Japan, oh yes, she now lives in Japan too, but in a different part of Japan. I’m truly blessed to have amazing and loving parents and friends.
