Room Vibes with Sunday Citizen

 We've landed at the Chateau! We are still knee deep in renovating
and unpacking slowly as the rooms come together.
I lightly unpacked the kids rooms for now so they
have a sense of normalcy. We went with a fun tropical wallpaper
and these crazy soft pillows and throw from Sunday Citizen.
The softest fabrics ever! Just cozy and perfect for snuggling!

I am loving this gorgeous palm leaf print pillow that ties in
perfectly with the wallpaper. And a lush blue pillow to pull your eyes
to the fun toucan print. Sunday Citizen pillows should be on
everyone's wishlist. They come in so many colors and
beautiful designs. A soft, cozy pillow makes all the
difference on a bed or couch. I can't stand scratchy pillows!
When my 5 year old says: "this is the softest thing on earth," you can
believe it is!

This Woodland throw is the softest blanket ever! If the air conditioning is on
and it's too cool these blankets are perfect! My son has this
boho papasan chair and I popped the throw over it so he can chill and he loves it!

 I have so much work to do in this house, it's true! But we are enjoying picking out
all the finishes and designing the new rooms. During the process, it's these
little luxurious touches that make all the difference. My advice is to
invest in quality, luxe pieces that you use everyday. The finest sheets,
the softest pillows and throws. The fabrics we live in are worth every penny!
Check out Sunday Citizen for lots of other cozy soft items!

Finding Light in all the Places

The sun was shinning just perfectly when we took these pics today. 
 The light dancing thru the trees, felt like warm kisses on my face.
After a week of thunderstorms and lightning in Texas,
 I have been missing my California sunshine.  
So, to get a workout in and boost my vibe I put on this VShred set in 
the prettiest pastel sage color.

I love how high waisted these leggings are! They really suck everything in and
feel amazing. I am tempted to grab a pair of the new black leopard set, it is fire!
As a mom of two, I am super picky with leggings. They need to lift and
sculpt. So these past that test. But, I would suggest going with a darker
color or prints over the lighter pastels as they show all your biz!
VShred was kind to offer GG followers 20% off with code: GLAM20
Check VShred out and get some new workout gear for yourself, I know you 
deserve it! 
I always feel much more motivated if my workout attire is on point. 
Old, worn out stuff should be donated asap!

If you are feeling a little drab like I was, try pulling out a good pair of leggings and just go for a quick walk. Trust me you will feel 100% better!

Sending you love and light

Girl gadgets!  I love trying out cute accessories like these super chic ones from Elle.
This little Cell Phone Bank that looks like a lipstick is my favorite! Perfect to keep in your
purse for whenever you need a quick charge and it's super affordable check it out here!

This Cordless Flat Iron is the perfect travel piece. I love the rose gold detail and sleek white
handles. It's light as a feather and also rechargeable with any USB cord! 

 This is perfect for everyday use all well, I despise cords! So, this is perfect for
when I need to whip up a look without any fuss. 

This fun Power Spin Makeup Brush comes with two super dense brushes. 
I like to mist my brush first with a facial toner and then apply foundation.
This definitely makes applying foundation, powders, concealers etc. very relaxing and
even therapeutic! Something different to add to the routine never hurts!

The Best Gift for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner! Sunday May 12th!
I just received my Mixbook order and I wanted to 
share how special this would be as a gift for a 
special Mom or Nana.
A photo book is such a treasure these days, 
as it seems we all take pictures in our phones and never print them!
 I told myself that I have to start making photo albums for the kids
to have when they grow up just like my mom did for us. It's
something I cherish and I know all mother's feel the same!
Mixbook has beautifully arranged photo books for you so 
you don't have to do the work!
There are themes for every occasion and it's so easy to 
upload your photos into the albums. 

Mixbook partnered with several designers and I chose the Oh Joy design for 
my photo book. I love her aesthetic and since we live in 
California it went perfect with our beachy lifestyle! 
The quality of the book is spot on, the color and clarity is 

Mixbook also offers many different photo options like this beautiful
acrylic block. It is just gorgeous! This would
be such a fabulous gift! My heart just melted when I opened
the box and saw this!

I was very happy with the quality of the items and what
a breath of sunshine it is to actually see my treasured photos out of my phone!
Another great gift idea for mothers day would be a custom photo calendar.
There are some beautiful designs to choose from as well.
If you order by today May 3rd, your order will arrive by Mother's Day!
Plus the box is so cute it comes with pretty stickers on it and I also
have a special code for you with $25 off your order just use
code: FAMBAM expires June 30, 2019. 
Of course, you can place this order anytime and just treat
yourself or someone you love to a special gift at Mixbook!

Humble Places - Words & Thoughts

Blessed are those who see
beautiful things in humble places
where other people see nothing. -Camille Pissarro 

This season has been one of change and growth for me.
Re-evaluating my priorities in my daily life and keeping our
rhythm slow and sacred instead of busy and burned out like the rest
of the world seems to be doing.
It's become more of a task to get off the gerbil wheel of social media/busyness/comparison
and all the expectations of our current "do it all" culture. 
My posts have slowed down. Not for want, but to just live in the present moment for
a bit. It does the soul good to disconnect for a time.
I believe we all need these spaces of refreshing the spirit.
At first, it feels unnatural and unrealistic. Then, like a dewy Spring morning,
the soul wakens to the simple song of birds, their cadence like a password
to let go and be still in nature. A walk in the outdoors, moments of
peace and clarity come rushing in. These are the humble places we all
I hope that wherever your current journey may be unfolding,
that you will venture out and find your own space to disconnect from the pressures
 of the world and find a humble place of peace.

MyChelle : A Great Time to Switch to Clean Skincare!

New Year, means the perfect time to switch out any toxic skincare
and go completely clean!
I've been using MyChelle dermaceuticals for a few months now and I wanted
to share the brand with you as they are pretty amazing!
I learned on their site that the average person uses about 12 personal care products
and is exposed to over 126 unique chemicals from those products daily! 
That is just mind blowing right!
MyChelle products use clean, non-toxic, safe ingredients and I'm 
on board with that mission.
In addition to being healthy for you, their formulas offer
major results! I tested these products on my skin
which is normal to oily for several months.
If you are looking to switch out your skincare routine, this is a great
brand to start with!

which is a 2% Hyaluronic Acid moisture binding gel. This is perfect for
these Winter dry months. I like to use it around my mouth, eyes and forehead.
After applying, just top with a moisturizer. 
I find that a little goes a long way and it does hydrate and plump 
the areas applied to. If you have fine lines, I think this would
be are great product for you to hydrate those areas.

This is a favorite of mine, I love a face spray!
A refreshing cactus water mist with hyaluronic acid, plant stem cells and
niacinamide which is supposed to revive and rejuvenate the skin.
I use it it the morning for a refreshing plump! It has no smell and feels super
light-weight on the skin, not sticky or heavy. Another great product during the dry 
winter months!

This is a light-weight moisturizer. At first,
I wasn't sure about the consistency, they way it pumps out. But, I really like
how it absorbs right into the skin like a drink of hydration. 
With squalane, a botanical blend of plant stem cells, blue lotus,
rose petals and fresh water algae. The way I apply this is by pressing it into my skin
not rubbing, but gently patting it in.  I find that my skin is much softer and the texture is smoother.
This is a new must for  me!

The perfect mask for softer skin!
With prickly pear cactus and blue agave, this formula is
light and moisturizing. It has a wonderful fresh, tropical smell to it.
I use this one a week overnight and my skin fabulous in the morning!
If this weather has your skin feeling dull and dry, this
will hydrate your skin and leave it supple. It is not greasy or
heavy, but super light.
A must-have mask for your skin.

If you are ready to throw out all those chemical filled
moisturizers, creams, face cleansers, and masks, then
now is the perfect time to start fresh! I feel
so much better knowing I'm not harming my
system with toxic ingredients that harm my liver! Those ingredients
end up causing other issues in our lives and it's time we
eliminate unnecessary chemicals from our beauty counter!
I know you will love MyChelle products as much as I do
 and right now they are having
a great sale for BOGO on many items on their website!
 A great time to try things out!
