Weekending

Another summer weekend has come and gone, and here we are in the middle of August! How is it already my birthday week?! Cheers to all the coffee to get us through this Monday!


It was a good mail week, and I was excited not just for my Tory Burch b-day gift to arrive (details on my favorite birthday month freebies in Friday's post) but also that I received my latest voxbox from Influenster.


I was impressed that they sent full sizes of the Kat Von D Lock-It concealer, setting powder, and brushes for testing and review. The brushes are super soft, and I can't wait to have fun testing out what looks like a fabulous line.


On Saturday, I baked some homemade some funfetti donuts before some friends came over. The guys painted the nursery while the girls had some pool time, and then we all enjoyed some dinner and a movie.



We went with "sassy lilac" on three walls, and did an accent wall of a silvery gray for the nursery. The guys did such a great job, I may or may not have teared up when I saw it all finished.


Sunday was about relaxation and some online shopping. Is it just me or does coffee just taste better on the weekends when it can be enjoyed while relaxing outside on the weekend?


I can't stop buying all the dresses! I typically live in dresses during the warmer months as they're so much more comfortable in the heat, but with my growing bump it's been nice not to worry about waist bands while also staying cool. So, I scooped up two more dresses along with a flowy criss-cross top, and a pretty pinky ring to add some instant pizazz to any outfit.

  36. The nursery looks adorable! I love the colors you decided to go with. Totally a color combo I would go with. I'm so bummed my Kat Von D Lock-It voxbox was sent to the old address and has since been lost in the mail. It was the best one yet from Influenster so I was excited to try their products and full-size products too! I'm still hoping it somehow manages to find it's way to my new address.
