Today’s Quick Outfit Details!


Last night I got a spray tan with my friend and it makes me really summer hungry, but it’s still chilly here so I’m still in jackets.  I wanted so show you how I hurried and threw this outfit together really quick! I had Friday lunch with the girls today and I was at the gym this morning so we had to be out the door fast. Not to mention that is almost impossible when you have two kids. We made it, better late than never. Also I was so excited to get my nails done, and by that I mean stay up all night at home and do them myself. I don’t know whats wrong with me but when I see a new trend I have to try it. I know they are a weird design but I was very surprised how much I loved them. I hope you enjoy, and HAPPY FRIDAY!!

11 Secrets for a Happier Mommy

I decided to let you in on a secret to help you be a Happier mom. Try one of these everyday and see how it helps you in your life. I know that in my life these work miracles.

#1     It is a priority to own a leather jacket. When I go to the grocery store I am lucky if I brush my hair, but I’m telling you once I put on my leather jacket I change to a whole new person. It’s like I automatically become Sandy from “Grease” and I feel like such a rebel. I don’t care what shape, size or color you are trust me you will feel so hot and forget all about the crusty cereal on your pants.

#2  “Exercise gives you endorphin’s and endorphin’s make you happy, happy people don’t shoot their husbands” yes I am quoting “Legally Blonde.” This is so true I seriously have gone 5 years out of high school without one day of exercising and thought I was just going to stay skinny and the post baby skin was going to go back up where it came from and boy was I wrong. Now I will be honest I look like a flabby unicorn trying to run when I work out, and I do not know how people think running is fun and I do not have that talent. I usually go to a treadmill or the elliptical  and put my head phones in and just binge watch Netflix and wow it feels so good to watch a grown up show. I also was at Costco one time and I seriously spent 5 min to put my dog food in the cart and I couldn’t pick it up, then this hot momma comes walking by and picks one up no prob and puts it in her cart. After that, I then decided I was going to lift weights. Let me tell you people, working out is actually beneficial and you can use it in everyday life! Now I’m a rock star at picking up dog food bags at Costco. I really have noticed a difference in my energy and feel happier when I work out.

#3   Have a dance off! This one works every time, especially if you win every time like me. Or even better, have an undance off, which me and my sister made up. When we would do chores we would turn on a song with a sick beat, for us it was usually the Footloose theme song and that song you just cannot resist dancing to it. We would then see who could go the longest without breaking out into dance.Trust me, it’s harder than you think and man it feels good to let it out when that person loses.

#4   Get an Oreo shake from Chick-fil-a …… that is all. ..

#5   Play dress up with your kids!! I love playing dress up with my girls they think that everything I do is amazing and hilarious. My favorite is when my daughters and I play and I make them call me Queen..

#6   Get pampered. I have so many moms who look so forward to their nail appointments  with me and we just laugh and have tickle fights and just spend a whole hour devoted to them. I love that in doing nails I become such a huge part in women’s lives whether it be doing nails for their wedding, for when their baby comes, or a funeral for their husband. I have such a bond and I think that is so important to have somewhere to go once a month and have someone to talk to.

#7   Pray. Lots of times I will kneel down in prayer and ask for happiness and allow my heart to open up and let the good in and the bad out. Sometimes you have to work really hard at letting it in, but having a little bit of Jesus in your life will turn your rain cloud into sunshine.

#8   Take a bubble bath. I think doctors should write prescriptions for this. I could seriously spend a whole hour straight in the bath tub just thinking about life and watching my favorite shows.. warning I have dropped my phone in the tub and have fallen asleep, so remember there are dangers of the bath tub.

#9   Remember it’s normal to have a bad day and sometimes you need to cry it out. I think that it’s perfectly fine and okay to hit the wall when you stub your toe on it, and sometimes when I throw a fit and get so frustrated at losing something, I find it right after I threw the fit. Its okay  to do that once in awhile if it makes you feel better, just do your best. Also make sure there are not kids around you watching or else you will see your three year old hit the wall when she stubs her toe. Whoops!!

#10  Take a video of yourself cleaning on your “time lapse setting.” My sister-in-law Cami came up with this and we have been so obsessed with it. It really works wonders. All of us girls will take a video of us cleaning and send it to each other and we go crazy at watching each other clean! It sounds so funny, but it really motivates you. Even more so when your sister-in-laws are cheering you on. Also my husband watches it and I look like super woman while he thinks I spent all day cleaning. I’ve included a video below so you understand what I’m talking about. It’s seriously so fun!

#11 Make out… I don’t ever think I have ever been grumpy while making out. I know some people aren’t up for that and that’s cool. I would just say if you’re not a fan of that or if your man isn’t home, cuddle and hold your baby or child, or even man child, it really helps. My favorite thing I get from my little girls are butterfly kisses with our eyelashes. They think it’s so fun. It’s also a good excuse to get close to them. It will give you a reason to smile and a way to let you know that “Hey maybe I am doing a pretty swell job at this whole motherhood thing.”

I hope this made you feel a little better and gave you some good ideas. Just remember you are so pretty and very much needed. XoXo Pretties.

Big News at the Salon!

I’m so excited to announce that I will now be using Olaplex  at the salon! This product has changed everything about hair and has brought hair back to life, it’s pretty much liquid gold. The thing I love most about it is that it isn’t like a leave-in conditioner that puts a layer of something over your hair, it actually is a ingredient that changes the chemistry of your hair and heals from within, and repairs all the broken bonds. It isn’t going to fade and wear off, it will change the hair and restore it. Here is what Olaplex says: “With this fresh outlook, this dream team invented a single ingredient chemistry, that is free of silicone or oils, that links broken bonds in the hair during and after chemical services making them stronger than they were before.”   I have been so embarrassed with my hair lately because it is so damaged especially to get it this white blonde. My ends have been so fried and frizz out on my ends, not to mention it was a rats nest all the time. A few days ago, I used this when I lightened my roots and then I used the no.3  today and my hair is completely different. I have been wearing my hair up in top knots everyday because it has just been so damaged. I’m so relieved that I was able to save my hair and it is better than ever!

I also have had my Halo Couture for over a year and it was needing some tender loving care. I put the no.3 treatment on them for like an hour and they seriously feel like the day I got them. Yahoo!!! This is for professional use only so make sure to ask your stylist if they can use Olaplex when you get your hair lightened, the service will cost a little bit more but you will be very happy with the results.



P.S I don’t know if you can tell, but I have a horrible cold sore so that’s why my pictures are of only one side of my face. If you have any cold sore remedies, please leave a comment and let me know. I’m even willing to do the rain dance if that will get rid of them. Thanks for stopping by Pretties!!

Hello Pretty Springtime

These past couple of weeks have been so fun for us and we are loving springtime. Although when you’re a mom and spring break is every day, we got to be with grandmas and cousins during the day this week for their spring break which made it fun for us. We drove up to Willow Park Zoo and that was such a fun place to watch the kids go crazy. Sidenote – it’s also very inexpensive if you’re looking for something fun to do in Utah. We also had our picnic basket and blanket handy and had a picnic by the animals. Hollynd was so happy about the picnic and made sure to tell everyone all about it. Check out our vlog from the last couple of weeks of adventures and enjoy!
