Mama and Mini Style with Matilda Jane

Hello Friends! 

I just need to start off by saying how much we adore Matilda Jane Clothing. 
If you are from the south then you probably know what I'm talking about. 
The absolute most adorable clothes for baby girls! 
I use to think it was only for babies, BUT I found out that it's for babies, toddlers, little girls, tween girls and ladies. How perfect!? 

This out I'm wearing is a dress from Matilda Jane. With the fall weather approaching I thought id turn my summer dress into something for fall. just simply tie it up on the side and throw on your jeans! 
As for little girls, Addie River's dress is unreal. The designers of this company know exactly what they are doing! Everyone needs some MJ in their life!

Happy Friday- Featuring Nora's Nursery

Happy Friday friends! 


These past two weeks have been CRAZY. We were dealing with two sick babies and now this mama thinks she's coming down with something. There should be a rule that mama's aren't aloud to get sick,  anyone else agree? 

Today we are featuring Nora's Nursery, our favorite cloth diapering company! 
 I have a little confession to make. We went a couple of months not using a single cloth diaper. You guys, football season is crazy around our house. I tend to get so overwhelmed and well it was just easier on me to go the disposable route. 

To be honest that's one of my favorite things about cloth diapers. You don't HAVE to use them every single day. We love them because they are convenient believe it or not! 

How adorable are these diapers? Don't they just scream fall/winter.

Updating your closet for fall- With Thredup


Happy Monday! 

The kiddos and are are enjoying this Monday on the couch in our PJ's. Today their schools have Fall Break but daddy of course in at work getting ready for todays football practice. 
The weather here has really started feeling like fall which I LOVE! 
If you are like me, you fall and winter might consist of a lot of cute/comfy sweaters. Every fall I like to stock up on them. 



In late September I ordered some fall things from ThredUP and I'm completely obsessed! 
I don't know if i had Christmas on my brain but this red sweater dress is perfect for the fall and winter season. 
I wanted to get things that I could mix up. This sweater dress is perfect for dressing up or pairing with leggings and skinny jeans for a casual look. 
I saved 74% on my order! You guys, thats ($210.06) I saved! I paid $49.75 updating my closet for the fall. If that isn't a win then I don't know what is! 


My purchase included a H&M Sweater Dress, Ann Taylor Pullover sweater, Old navy Jeans, and a couple of pairs of H&M leggings (these are always my favorite , so I stock up whenever a find a few!)

Have you tried Lipsense!?

Hey girl.. look I know you've probably seen a ton of people talk about Lipsense, and you think to yourself, "there is no way that works." Well I'm here to tell you that IT DOES! 
I have seen a few other bloggers share about Lipsense. I didn't give it much thought until my sweet friend Chole asked me if I had ever tried it. 
This is one of my dear friends that I moved away from in March. I can't even explain how terribly I miss my Columbus gal pals. 
When she asked me if I would be willing to try it I of course said yes. 
And that's the end of it. I'm a fan, forever and always. 
She sent me over the color "Napa" and it is PERFECT for fall. 
If you are on the fence about trying it, have never heard of it, or you're just tired of reapplying lipstick all day you should check her out! 
You can find her here and Facebook or here on instagram!
