Wordless Wednesday: Impromptu Photo Shoot

Vivien is at the age that she actually enjoys having her photo taken, which seriously warms my heart as a mom-tographer. So when she actually suggests doing a photo shoot in the front yard? I’ll take it!

Seriously? Slow your roll, Tyra.

Oh, and “Budder Bear” also had to make a debut:

Be still my heart.

Go Blue!

Every year I have to post my obligatory photo of my kiddos on opening day of U of M football. I live for it, folks. And while I’ve also added the Denver Broncos to my sports team obsession list, I’ll forever and always be true to my boys in blue (and maize.) So this year, I have two to deck out. I have a super cute hat for Will, however, he has decided he hates hats. So. There’s that.

William has been a duck-facing fool lately, and it seriously cracks me up. He does this face all the time. So really, this post has no substance- other to just say:

Welcome fall– and GO BLUE!


Ahhhhh- An Oxygen Facial { #SkinSpaWestminster }

Friends, I love new hip things. I especially love when those things involve learning more about my skin, and what I should be doing to ensure that my face doesn’t look like a leather handbag when I’m 50. And Colorado is kind of a rough place to live for your skin, because of the zero percent humidity at all times, and the thin mountain air.

I was thrilled to learn about a new, chic spa in town (well, not my town, but trust me, it’s worth the drive to Westminster.) Skin Cleaners  offers an array of services, from waxing, to lash extensions, to a ton of new, fun facials utilizing the best products to make your skin come alive in simply an hour. I was thrilled to attend a blogger meetup at the Spa to learn more about the service and watch a demo, and then return for my own facial a couple weeks later.

Skin Cleaners is owned and operated by Karen Martiz. She is seriously the nicest person ever, and really strives to make you feel comfortable the entire time (which is good, because she uses a magnifying glass to inspect your skin and get’s all up in your biznass.)

Oxygen facials are quickly becoming the rage, especially in Denver where, let’s face it, we could use a bit more oxygen in our daily life. Karen preps the skin by cleansing, and inspecting your skin, and then she uses the oxygen to revitalize your dull skin along with a magical mixture of (organic) serums and moisturizers. I walked out with supple, soft and dewy skin. Seriously, even Eli said my face looked nice when I got home.

Karen offers many different incentives, such as a percentage off for teachers, and an easy monthly membership option. The Oxygen Facial from Colorado Skin Cleaners Beauty Spa is the perfect gift for any holiday (hint, hint, Eli) or special occasion such as a wedding, or prom.

Oh, and if you book a service, will you please tell Karen that I sent you? That’s another incentive, ya know.

So what are you waiting for? Check out Karen at Colorado Skin Cleaners Beauty Spa or on InstagramTwitter,  and Facebook.

 


This is a sponsored post. I was able to try out the oxygen facial in return for my honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Trendy Tot Tuesday: Playing in the yard

Lately, the kiddos have been all about playing in the yard. Even William loves being outdoors and sitting in the grass and watching the happs of a whole new place and location. I love putting them in clothing that is comfortable for them to wear, looks adorable, and is fun!

Uhm, excuse me big boy, did you eat my tiny baby? ;-) Anyway, back to the clothing, since this is titled “Trendy Tot Tuesday”

William is sporting some handmade harem fox shorts from our favorite WAHM shop, Sew Itty Bitty Designs. Awesome quality, and the longer “harem” design of the shorts is a fun change that got tons of compliments from random passer-byers. Oh, and foxes. We all know how much I love to put him in fox stuff. For these fun shorts, I prefer a more solid shirt, and I think babies in tank tops are the cutest ever- so he wore a tank top white onesie. Basic, but still a super fun outfit, because of the shorts!

For Vivien, I paired her Turquoise Floral Shorts from Sew Itty Bitty Designs with a Flower Top from Ruum (currently on sale for $3.49!!) and a pair of Turquoise Glitter Toms that I got on Zulily earlier this spring for $18.

These outfits were perfect for the errands that we did earlier that day (Vivien went to the dentist for the first time!) as well as playing in the front yard later that day and watching for Fire Trucks (we live next to the station) and waving at airplanes (we live close-ish to the Denver airport.)

Today I am linking up with my homegirls, Megan and Kelly. It’s been a hot minute since I did a link up, so here goes nothing! xoxo
