Friday Five

I'm coming at y'all with another short and sweet Friday Five post today. The woes of trying to balance working and being a stay at home mom really caught up with me this week. I ended up having to work Monday- Thursday this week and I am beat. Props to every working mom out there because it is hard to be away from little ones when they are so young.

Southern Charm. My only true reality TV addiction is Southern Charm and I can not wait for the premier next month! My friends are having a watch party for the premier and of course we have to dress the part. May or may be ordering caftans for the occasion. If only I could look this glamorous.

Limelight By Alcone. I shared this week about my new favorite beauty line. If you missed the post, stop by and check out their amazing natural skincare line.

Beauty and the Beast. I am so looking forward to seeing this movie. Anyone seen it yet and did it live up to the hype? My only wish is that Caroline was old enough to enjoy it with me!

Spring Wardrobe. J.Crew's new releases have me giving all the heart eyes. I just adore the ruffles, stripes and dots. One favorite that has it all is this adorable top!
Web Favorites.

Tarte can do no wrong and this palate looks amazing.

Love that Dunkin is replacing it's most unhealthy drink on the menu.

Lately | Life & Random Thoughts

Currently hanging out Sunday afternoon while Caroline takes her third nap of the day. Yes, third nap. Being one year old is super tough sometimes and naps have really suffered lately. So after two 45 minute naps this morning she finally tuckered out and fell asleep. We have all been battling congestion and coughs at our house which doesn't help either. Cold + Teething = One miserable baby.  So our weekend so far has been lots of cuddles, snacks and reading books.

I was able to sneak away early this morning for grocery shopping and errands. On the menu this week  includes two of my favorite flavorful yet simple meals. This one pan Italian skillet meal and a delicious pot roast. I purchased 2x the ingredients so I can freeze one meal for later.

One simple grocery hack is ordering groceries online at Walmart. No lie, while I used to turn my nose up at Walmart produce. The quality has gotten 100% better. There is no fee to order online- the total just has to meet the $30 minimum. They have the cheapest baby food pouches I have found. Under $1 for a variety of organic blends. It also gives you a chance to shop the entire store. You bet I ordered an extra humidifier and cold medicine this week and it all was delivered straight to my car. Check here to see if it's available in your area.

I am dying over new spring fashion. I just snagged some adorable tops on sale at Loft and Old Navy. Next on my list are a new pair of sandals. Also, I am loving this T3 curling iron. It is currently on sale as well! What are you loving for spring?

New Makeup Guide

Recently, a friend contacted me about trying a few new-to-me makeup and skincare line called Limelight by Alcone. I am always excited to try new products and jumped at the chance to share my experience with y'all. I have been trying their skincare products for the last week and my skin feels noticeably better.

Limelight features products that are phthalate free, paraben free, chemical free and cruelty free. The line has both a complete skincare routine as well as makeup collection. The makeup collection features professional grade makeup with the same formulas as pro brands.

Here is a peek into the items I loved.

Hydrating Face Serum - Features alge and mushroom extract to combat age spots, fine line and wrinkles.

Clay Masque - Acne fighting clay, tea tree oil and cinnamon bark to balance skin.

Cleanser - Combats acne bacteria and reduces the appearance of sun spots and skin damage. 

Also love this lipstick and this eyeshadow palette. You can check out the entire line here.  If you have any questions my friend Kirsten would be happy to help. 

While shopping yesterday I noticed several of the products and color options are out of stock. Check back often because Limelight is working hard to meet the demand. As a thank you they are currently offering free shipping at checkout!
