Twinning is winning

Fashion

Y’all on Tuesday we Twin.

Until twinning isn’t cool anymore I’ll be that mom.

Sometimes I buy things that are from the same place and sometimes I see things after I already have one item.

We could change this whole world with a piano

Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go

I’m just a boy with a one-man show

No university, no degree, but lord knows

Everybody’s talking ’bout exponential growth

And the stock market crashing in their portfolios

While I’ll be sitting here with a song that I wrote

Sing, love could change the world in a moment

But what do I know?

Love can change the world in a moment

But what do I know?

Love can change the world in a moment

Back to school bento box

bento boxes

Y’all some days I go alll out and other days I throw it in a bag. 🤣

So don’t think I always have it together and do it well. But I do enjoy creativity and food so this is fun for me.

Angry bird bento box

I made a grilled cheese and cut it in strips to use to build a fort then used green grapes and black gel.

I used Baybel cheese to create an angry bird and a kiwi as the monster.

Then black olives with carrot piece as a nose. It isn’t perfection but the concept is there.

BANANAAaaaannnnaaaa

Minions is one of our favorite movies so what better way to create a bento box.

I used a Hostess Twinkie and black icing Edible eye ball then I did the same thing with a banana.

I used mini corn dogs with edible eyeballs to create little minions.

Dooo doooo dooo dooo baby shark

Because who doesn’t want that song stuck in their head?

I used kitchen scissors to cut a shark like shape out of the bread for the sandwich.

Then I made blue jello and cut a pair to make the waves. I added goldfish, berries for ocean and yogurt raisins.

Spring time bento box

I used a hot dog and crescent roll to make a snail then I used a flower cookie cutter to make watermelon flowers.

I added blue jello for the sky and green grapes for the grass.

Ohh the kids loved this chicken and waffles theme.

This is super easy. I used frozen mini waffles and frozen chicken nuggets. I added Cascadian cereal, Greek yogurt, apples with cinnamon, and natural honey for dipping !

We love our Bentgo container

They are perfect for keeping things separate and dish wash great!

I hope you enjoyed some of my ideas. If you make any I would love to see!

One dress three ways

Fashion

Sometimes the best thing is to buy something that you can style different ways to create different outfits. Those are the items to spend more on or good denim or jackets.

I got this Leith dress from Nordstrom the other day and styled it 3 different ways.

The first of course it by itself. It could easily be dressed up or down and wore in many seasons.

I styled here as a transition to fall with this Denim dress some sandals and a fringe purse. You could also wear this denim dress buttoned up by itself.

Another way you could wear this dress is with a leopard cardigan and some espadrilles.

Leopard cardigan is from Beau Hudson which is the cutest shop started by a mom. My daughter has the matching one too.

And the last way I styled this was with a camo jacket tied around my waist which could be worn when indoor and air condition.

I wore with flats, but could defiantly be worn with some ankle booties for fall.

When buying a piece, just ask yourself how can I wear this? Is it worth the cost ?

All the clothing pieces in this were under 100$

The shoes, bags, and glasses, vary in more higher investment pieces.

If you want to see any other ways to style this dress or outfits let me know!!

Hats, hats, and more hats

Fashion

As we are all aware hats are defiantly a hot trend for this fall..

we are planning a girls trip to Napa so I deff need some good hats and for the few shorts months it’s fall in Texas.

I will start with my top pick

Goodnight macaroon hat

This hat is my top choice for many reasons.

First the style is super cute and trendy. The price point is under 30$ and even better it comes in 9 colors!!!

Revolve hat

My next one is a little bit of a splurge just over 100$ but totally looks designer and worth the price tag. I love the coloring of this hat different than the normal tan but still fit in the neutrals.

Then we have some brixton hats from Nordstrom which is one of my favorite brands for hats. I have two. They quality is amazing and the price tag isn’t to crazy usually under 60$

Grey hat

I don’t have a grey hat so I think this one is on my radar for this fall.

Blush hat

This hat is swooon and the perfect feminine touch and color which could even carry into spring. So bonus.

This is one of the hats I have and it is perfect for fall and winter. It doesn’t have a hard brim like some of the others which I like to switch it up.

Black brixton

To finish up my fall hat round up is this hat in an olive green and a great price point. it can be worn with light or dark neutrals.

Under 20$

And as I said we are planning a trip for Napa so just for fun I think it need to invest in this hat for after wine tastings.

Probably hungover

Let me know if you buy any of these hats for anything I can help you find!

Hope everyone is ready for fallll y’all!
