Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing some casual outfit inspo featuring one of my favorite style of tops, the peplum. I have a little bit of a peplum obsession lately. Who can say no to a super flattering and girly top? Not me. 

This army green frayed hem button up jacket with pockets from Zaful has the cutest peplum detail and can be worn as a shirt, or a jacket (since the fabric is a little heavier than shirt material). This top runs slightly small so I would size up. I'm wearing a medium and still had to leave the top button open so it wouldn't bow out. 

I've been wearing this top to the office with black joggers or dress pants and with jeans on the weekends. Besides being only $15, I love that it can easily be dressed up or down. 

Also, the boots I'm wearing are sold out but I found a couple similar options for you. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Pictured: Grand DockATot in Pristine White
There are so many baby products out there, and as a first-time mom, it was hard for me to decide what I actually needed for the arrival of my son, Winston. I'm so thankful I discovered the DockATot before the big day, so it was ready to use for his first night home from the hospital. Today, I'm sharing a review of our most-used baby item (besides diapers & wipes haha), the DockATot Deluxe and recently added to the family, the Grand DockATot. DockATot is advertised as a luxury and a necessity for any parent who wants their little one's earliest years to be nestled in a happy and healthy cocoon of comfiness, and that really is the truth. For this reason, and so many more, the DockATot is my number one baby must-have. Read my full reviews below.

DockATot Deluxe 

Winston is 7 months in this picture. While he's growing fast, he does still fit in it.
We traveled to Washington D.C. with the DockATot Deluxe last weekend, and this is what he slept in. 
Winston has used the DockATot Deluxe to sleep in from the day we brought him home. We use it as his sleeper, for him to lounge in and nap, and to play in. We even used this for a little bit of tummy time. Each DockATot is made out of soft, breathable, 100% cotton material. When I put him in, it truly is piece of mind, knowing he'll be in a comfy and safe spot. He sleeps 8-10 hours a night!

The DockATot Deluxe is super lightweight and portable. Our family has traveled several times since Winston was born, and the DockATot Deluxe is one item we never forget to bring. It truly is the perfect co-sleeper. During our travels, my husband and I will put the DockATot Deluxe in-between us on the bed and it works perfect.

Grand DockATot

DockATot was kind enough to gift us the Grand version to review one month ago. While the DockATot Deluxe is for babies 0-8 months and 5-22 pounds, Winston was ready to move up to the Grand about a little early. He's above average in height and weight and manages to wiggle his little buns down while he sleeps. So, 7 months was a perfect time for him to upgrade to the Grand DockATot, which is for ages 9-36 months and 22-40 pounds. We move it from his nursery to sleep in the evenings, downstairs for playtime and naps, and will be traveling with it next month. We also plan to use the DockATot Grand to transition him into a big boy bed (when it's time, of course - PLEASE STOP GROWING). 

I have to mention that both DockATots are machine washable, and the covers are very easy to take on and off. Another feature that I love is the handle. You'll appreciate this when your hands are full and you only want to make one trip down the stairs (I promise).  

If you or someone you know would like to purchase a DockATot Deluxe or Grand DockATot, click here for a discount code, where you'll receive $10 off your purchase. These make amazing gifts for a baby shower, and there are so many colors and patterns. There is definitely something for every mom. 

As always, thank you for stopping by! If you have any questions about my experience with either DockATot, please leave me a comment below or feel free to email.

It's March, the month in Las Vegas when you have to layer to to fight that reoccurring wind. It's also the month that makes wearing lip gloss basically impossible (fun fact).

Today's outfit of the day is a super easy to put together ensemble, featuring this chic open front waistcoat from Zaful (comes in camel & black). It's a medium weight polyester material that doesn't wrinkle super easy, which is great. I have an infant, so I don't always have time to steam every outfit. Check out the Zaful Women's Day 2018 sale for discounts on this vest and similar items. 

I paired the waistcoats with a flirty tank and this super soft long sleeve tee that I've posted abut before. It comes in a ton of colors and is super flattering.

Sometimes, I don't want to break out my $48 bottle of foundation, limited edition contouring palettes and expensive highlighter just to sit on my couch and watch cartoons with my baby. No offense Winston. Mommy still wants to look pretty for you :) But is anyone with me? Anyway, I do want to have something on my face... Makeup is expensive, so if you could achieve the same or similar look for less, wouldn't you? Whether you need make-up on the fly and can't run to the mall, or if you simply want to add a few less expensive pieces to your beauty routine, I'm sharing my beauty favorites from the drugstore below. All are comparable to the department store brands that I use on a regular basis. 

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation: I have combination skin, and this foundation is a dream, giving me the perfect glow for daily use. I mix colors 201 & 203 to get my perfect shade. If you have oily skin, I would not recommend, as you may wind up looking over shiny. I would say this foundation is comparable to NARS All Day Luminous Foundation

NYX Eyebrow Gel: I have been using this gel for over a year, and keep using it because it's such great quality. If you're an Anastasia Brow Dip lover, you should really try this. It's a fraction of the cost at only $7, is water-proof and long lasting. The only difference between the two brands, is the consistency isn't as thick, but close. I wear the blonde shade which is comparable to the Anastasia Taupe Brow Dip.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer: I picked this up at the store to try about 6 months ago. I wanted something with a treatment in it, but also something with actual coverage that was comparable to my everyday go-to: NARS Radiant Cream Concealer. I continue to wear this, because it's light weight, but buildable, and I found it in my perfect cool shade, "Fair." 

NYX Butter Lip Gloss: My favorite color is "Creme Brulee," a perfect blend of creamy and shear nude gloss. Besides the color, I love that it's not sticky like so many glosses out there. It's not advertised as an all day or long lasting gloss but it should be. It lasts for hours. 

NYX Highlighter: I received this as a gift at a NYX store opening, and when I used it for the first time, I was mad at myself for waiting so long to open it. It is THE perfect highlighter, and by that I mean: not too iridescent, not too shimmery and not too glittery. Just perfection. I can't say enough about this one! My shade is "Twilight Tint." I'm currently using a limited edition highlighter from the a Tarte holiday palette during the week, and this is the closest to it that I've found so far.

L'Oreal Glow Nude Highlighter Palette: Great for travel, or second option to that expensive quad palette you may already have in your make-up kit. This palette is the newest addition to my make-up stash, and I what I like most, is how versatile it is. There is a highlighter, bronzer, and blush option included to get the glow I want. 

NYX Professional Make-Up Brushes: I couldn't find a direct link to these for you guys, but wanted to mention them because they are softer and better quality than almost all of my department store brushes. Try them them out!

I've been a fan of NARS products for years, so I was happy to be invited to the Spring Color Launch at NARS in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace a couple weeks ago, for a preview of the new limited edition products. They did NOT disappoint.
A NARS senior makeup artist and artist to celebs, demonstrated how to achieve a pretty Spring look in only 15 minutes. 
I was super impressed with new Spring NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette. You get 12 shadows that include matte, satin, metallic and glitter finishes. They are super rich and pigmented for really great coverage. My NARS shadows always last me a long time, so $59 is a steal. 
This Spring lip pencil trio comes in three shades perfect for any season, and in a super chic travel case. Included are: three full-size velvet matte lips pencils and a sharpener. I was pleasantly surprised by this product. These jumbo pencils are super creamy and cover like a lipstick, but are easy to precisely apply like a pencil.

Drybar was at this event providing complimentary curls and braids, and Absolut making the most beautiful cocktails. Thank you NARS Las Vegas for having me!

Give Me All The Marble

For the girl that doesn't want pink and red everything for Valentine's Day, or maybe she just loves the marble pattern. Here are a few items on my wish list from Zaful

This six-piece marble make-up brush set is not only gorgeous but eco-friendly too. The marble with the rose gold is so pretty, too. Marble studs in round or triangle options are perfect for any stylish friend or family member. They are neutral enough, so they can be worn with just about anything. You'll be shocked at how reasonably priced they are. My favorite marble find at Zaful is the Marble Sports Bra with Mesh Leggings set. The leggings are high-waisted (yes)! All of these items are discounted for the 2018 Zaful Valentine's Sale

Hi All! I've been getting some inquiries on the jeans I've worn in my last couple posts, so today I wanted to give you some casual outfit inspiration with these errand-worthy threads, and talk about this pair of jeans that I can't stop wearing. 

These ripped skinny jeans are from Rosegal, and are the most comfortable pair I've worn in a really long time. They are not jeggings, they are jeans, but they have an amazing amount of stretch in them to help fit my body in all the right places. Being completely real....This is one of my first pair of jeans since giving birth to my little boy Winston. I haven't quite made it to my goal weight, so when I was on the hunt for a pair of jeans, I need forgiving fabric that still looked stylish with an on trend wash. These are super reasonable at only $25, so when I need the next size down, I'm not going to break the bank. The fit is true to size and the wash is best see in all images below this text. 

"The Sweetest Sale" is going on now for Rosegal Valentine's Gifts with almost 80% off sitewide. Use code LOVE24.

Grab items from their Best Valentine's Gifts for 2018 selection, the sale ends tomorrow.
