Effortless Style

Are you familiar?  I have been a long time follower of Camila's blog, Effortless Style and I have always enjoyed her In Her Shoes segment that features different artists, designers, DIY'ers from around the country and let' sthem in on what a day in the life of that person is like.  All glitz and glamour right?!!!  I was thrilled to be asked to participate in her series today.  

So head on over here to see a glimpse of what "a day in the life" of this gal is like!  
Happy Friday my friends!

A Few Faves

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter!  I took a bunch of photos of our weekend at the beach but now can't get my camera to download pics to my computer-arggg!!!!!  Maybe later this week...but today I wanted to share a few sites I have been loving lately.

I know most of you who read this know that I am (mostly) a vegetarian with the exception of fish/shellfish and bacon.  Ha!  So weird I know but can't deny it!  If you too share my love of vegetarian food then you must check out Naturally Ella.  She has some of THE BEST looking recipes I have come across on the world wide web!!!  We made this last night......and the night before.  We added shrimp last night and I totally would have added black beans if we had them, but no luck (really was good without either)

I also have come across the cutest store on Etsy called Harriet's Haberdashery.  Even though I don't have a little girl, I still can't resist all the cuteness!!!

Nani Iro Sleeveless Shirtdress

Natural Linen Dress with Pink Bone Buttons and Raw Silk Noil Neon Straps

Linen Dress with Peter Pan Collar, Liberty Cotton Lining & Double Cross Back Straps

And this stuff..... the BOMB!!!!  I got mine when Pout! came to Novel. a couple of weeks ago.  After reading the package I was sold!  Here's why it's so great:

"Leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing.
Activates moisturizing collagen synthesis.
Provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation.
Helps to leave skin smoother, brighter and softer.
Provides tighter skin texture and tighter pores.
Helps to provide a more youthful appearance.
Absorbs impurities without removing natural oils.
Helps to protect against free radical damage."

I walked out of the bathroom into where the boys were watching TV and scared the daylights out of them!!!   I wasn't sure what the mud mask would look like but came to find it basically looks like mud with black seaweed in it.  Really not a good look...but the results are worth the monster face!

Annnd just found this in my inbox from my mother in law
