Little Girl Valentines Day Outfit

Hey Babes,

Aria.. my little spit fire. We arrived at the Cents of Style wall and she saw some girls doing a photo shoot, so she wanted a photo shoot. So we obliged. She wanted to walk up and down all the different colors. She loved the yellow wall. The wall that was being occupied of course so she had a few little melt downs until we got the wall to ourselves.

When dressing Aria for Valentines Day, I take into an account of where we will be. Since we will probably be out for pizza I want her to look cute, warm, and festive. This coat was a great find at Sam's Club. They have some pretty cute things for kids, a lot of Carter's clothing etc. She know has this coat in white, pink and black. For $10 who could go wrong.

I made this cute red bow using this pattern. I love making bows for her. It is kind of an addiction. I then added these adorable riding boots. I got these on a super sale last year from the Children's Place. She is just so cute I cannot stand it.

Valentines Day Hair: Braided Side Bun

Hey Babes,

For all you lovely ladies single, or not who are going out, this is the hair do for you. It is so cute, took me five minutes and so gorgeous.

Supplies Needed:







First spry the roots with dry shampoo and brush knots and tangle out. The dry shampoo will give the hair texture, brushing out any knots will make braiding easier.

Now braid your hair incorporating a new section as you work your way down. Much like a french braid.

Secure braid with elastic and make a side pony tail. Secure that with an elastic.

Tease the ponytail and hairspray to set in place.

Randomly secure pieces with bobby pins. If you have thick coarse hair that doesn't stay put spray the bobby pin with hairspray before using them. Let them get tacky and then begin using them. Secure braid under pony tail disguising the end of the braid.

Now you have this gorgeous braided side bun to enjoy your Valentines Night. It looks perfect dressed up or casual. I would love to see your braided recreations.

Valentines Day: Snowy Date Night

Hey Babes,

Utah has been very snowy, then rainy, then snowy again. Rain boots are perfect boot for this type of weather. Which is also perfect for a snowy/rainy Valentines date.

I love this gorgeous pink coat. It is so warm and so perfect for V-day. I wanted to pair it with a deep red tunic top. I love these two color together and it makes for a festive date night out. This outfit is perfect to grab a quick bite, watch a movie, go out for dessert pretty much anything casual.

Speaking of casual, let's talk pizza. My favorite pizza joint ever has opened up in South Jordan. If you have ever had Godfathers pizza you know why I am obsessed. Their taco pizza is to die for. Anyway they used to only have one joint in Taylorsville and they have a soft opening today the 16th! Check out their facebook here for more details. Get the taco supreme and a dessert pizza. They are both to die for. Any pizza there is beyond delicious. (not sponsored just in love with their pizza!).

I have a sneaking suspicion this is what we will be doing for Valentines day, and I have the perfect outfit for it!

Basic Invite

Hey Babes,

As most of you already know being a parent comes with endless lists of planning for the future. Aria's birthday isn't until September, but I am already planning it. I remember in high school it was this time of year we started ordering invitations for Graduation. That was, almost 11 years ago (does not feel like it!) I remembered hating my invitations, they were too...normal. They were the exact thing everyone else was sending out. They were pretty, but I like different..customized. I wish I would have known about places like Basic Invites sooner. I was browsing there graduation section the other day  while looking at business cards, and they have the cutest graduation announcements and graduation invitations! Take a look.

How freaking cute is that, and you can order thank you cards to coordinate! I am dying, if I knew Aria's graduation date I would probably be ordering hers right this second.

Anyway, so bloggers get sent lots of items, we work with a lot of different companies and even other bloggers. As a resolution, every company, blogger I work with I would love to send them a handwritten Thank You card. I am grateful  for companies who reach out and take a chance on us promoting their items. It is a lot of work being a business owner and a blogger. Basic Invites has some really cute thank you cards! I love this one. I will probably be ordering this!

Like I said before I am also looking for business cards. I don't think I have ever made any for my blog. These would be perfect to send out with the thank you notes, it helps remind the blogger or business you worked with that they can contact you in the future for any collaborations they have. I am kicking myself for not doing this earlier. There's not time like the present, right!? You can even make your thank you card coordinate with your business card. I am in OCD heaven.

Don't they coordinate beautifully! I cannot wait to get these ordered.

If your not looking for Graduation announcements, business cards, or thank you cards they have a large variety of printable needs.

Baby Shower Invitations:

They even have all things wedding, first birthdays and so on. You can order in whatever color you desire to match your theme and style. Not many places have this option, you can have it completely custom to your liking. They also allow you to print a sample before you make a full order. That is an amazing option especially if it's for your big day! You can take your gorgeous invites a step further with their different color options of envelopes. They make your invite stand out and pop. What is even more amazing..you don't have to lick them! They are a peel away. 

You can check out their amazing site and social media below. I am warning you, you will get sucked in to this site. I have been shopping now for an hour. I did't make Aria a birth announcement..maybe I will make one just for her baby book..see what I mean!

Stylish Scrubs

Hey Babes,

Stylish scrubs?! And oxymoron right? Most people think scrubs as boring work wear, some double as pajama bottoms. I too thought this until I came across Landau's Smitten line. They are so cute and make my job easier getting ready in the morning. They are silky soft and the fabric is perfect for a day of running around.

I am a Dental Assistant, I have been for 9 years now. I love my job, but as a Fashion blogger I want to look stylish in scrubs as well. Getting up at 4 to do my hair and makeup is hard, but putting on boring scrubs is harder. Landau scrubs are not only fashionable but they are so soft and so comfortable. With the constant running around I do at my job I need something light weight. It is so exciting to have a cute pair of scrubs to match my personality a little more. Want to win a pair for yourself? Just enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post!

Ways to bring personality to your work wear:

-Makeup: I like to do simple makeup but it make me look put together. Work should be professional, so you should look professional. Not crazy makeup, but a simple look helps pull your look together.
I like to do foundation, a neutral eye-shadow look, a simple winged liner and some blush. I have to keep it fast and simple, but professional.

-Hair: I have to have my hair up out of my face for work. Having hair down in your face especially when you work in the medical profession is key. Fun braids, always add another element to a work hair do.

- Scrubs: Cute scrubs are a fun way to show your personality. Colors, styles whatever it may be. This smitten line by Landau is my absolute favorite. They are cute and emit my personality. They have a few different collections and styles. I love the bright colors and fresh styles! Say goodbye to boring scrubs.

DIY Ombre Chevron Arrows

Hey Babes,

I have been loving this chevron arrow trend that is everywhere. I wanted to incorporate this trend into my valentines day decor.

The wood connection had these adorable arrows all made up with chalkboard paint and handwritten messages on these arrows. I thought it was adorable, but chalkboard, chalk and a toddler..it wouldn't last long.

I love the ombre trend so I decided to do that with my arrows. I originally had one arrow white, but I had to add a little pink, due to the fact my piano was white and it blended in too much.

Again this project is inexpensive, quick and so chic.

Supplies:


Paint (pink, darker pink, red)



Layout the arrows and start with the lightest color. Paint the entire arrow I do the front, back, and sides.

Now paint with the darker pink. 

And finally paint the arrow in red.

Let dry.

I have seen these arrows stained and white washed. They look gorgeous both ways. 
How would you paint these arrows. Are you more into the stain and white wash, or bright bold colors?

Hey Babes,

Valentines Day is coming up quick. We are home bodies, so each year Brandon and I take turns planning dinner and a movie in. It is so nice, we avoid crowds, and we get to spend time together in our home with Aria.

I keep it pretty casual. A striped tunic, a pink poncho and skinny jeans are perfect for our Valentines. I love this stripped tunic I got from Jane. There are so many cute ways to style a striped top. You can pair it with a casual pair of skinny jeans, or you can dress it up with an adorable pencil skirt. I loved how it looked paired with this warm poncho I also purchased from Jane. It is a light touch of pink, without being overbearing.

When finding a great pair of skinny jeans I like a pair that fits, is comfortable and has a little room to move around. I like jeans a little loose so when I sit the band doesn't dig.

Boots are perfect for this time of year. There is so much snow! Even though we will be staying in for the evening its a good option for those of you who like to go catch a movie, or grab a quick bite before the crowds get too crazy.
