The Perfect Date Night Dress from eShakti

eShakti Date Night Dress

Recently my husband and I purchased season tickets to the local theater. We wanted a nice way to spend time together without the kids and loved the idea of pre-planned date nigths for the nights we were at the theater. But these nights out meant I needed a date night dress.

Luckily I had just received an email from eShakti asking if I was interested in trying something from their current line. And I jumped at the chance to try this gorgeous Sheer diamond check A-line dress for myself.

It was just dressy enough to go to the theater and worked perfectly with sweaters or jackets if needed. Along with the dress I decided to put together a few pieces I had recently purchased for our family photos (and some shoes I scored from Black Friday for $20!) and created this look that I’m loving.

I’ve decided I prefer the dress with a sweater for the winter but love the cut of the arms even though I usually don’t like showing them off.¬† [Read more…]

Failproof DIY Nail Art for the Busy Mom

Failproof DIY Nail Art

I think I’m in trouble. My daughter is obsessed with all things beauty. And I really need to up my game if I’m gonna be able to impress her with my mad nail painting skills. So I’ve searched high and low for the easiest, failrpoof DIY nail art so I can start practicing now.

After seeing a few blog posts from my friend Staci of 7 on a Shoestring (a self-proclaimed tomboy), including this graffiti nail art how-to, I knew there was light at the end of the tunnel. If she could make fun and pretty nail art for her girls, I could totally pull it off for my two year old.

So when I was perusing the shelves at CVS waiting for my prescription for Vicodin to be filled (ugh… had my wisdom teeth pulled last week and OMG I’m in pain!) I found the display for Sally Hansen nail art pens and couldn’t say no. It just sounded so easy!

I left the store with my daughter’s favorite color, purple, in Sally Hansen’s Tough As Nails Xtreme Wear polish and a white Sally Hansen nail art pen.

Mother Daughter Piggy Paint Spa Party

This article is sponsored by Piggy Paint

Over the past few weeks I’ve felt as if I haven’t had a chance to really spend one-on-one time with my daughter. We both keep very busy between playdates, preschool, and family activities so when I was offered the chance to create a special moment with her I took it!

Even though she’s only two she has proven to be quite the girly girl. She is obsessed with all things hair and makeup, including nail polish. So when I went in search for a safe nail polish to use for her I chose Piggy Paint. And as I’ve mentioned before, we love it!

In addition to the three colors we already have, and the nail polish remover we recently purchased at our favorite hair cutting salon, we received some new colors to try out. We decided to share the fun with friends and invited a few moms and daughters over for a Motehr Daughter Piggy Paint Spa Party.
