summer outfit ideas

We are experiencing some crazy heat in Newport Beach.  It’s been over 100 degrees!  This is madness!  Our power went out last night and I was so panicked.  We almost had to stay in a hotel but luckily it came back on and I was able to get Miss Milan to be at a reasonable hour.  She’s been a little busy bee with back to back playdates.  This is why I didn’t get my usual Friday weekend sale post up on time.  Sorry about that!  So the countdown has begun for the Nordstrom anniversary sale!  Early access starts July 12th and I will have all my sale picks bright and early so DO NOT miss it!  Get 40% off three full priced items at Ann Taylor with code: YOUPICK (love this and this).  If you love tees and shorts, Loft is having 50% off select full price styles (these look super cute).  If you love flamingos as much as I do, this tee is adorable and under $20!  Click READ MORE to view the full post.

Can you guys even believe it’s almost July?  Honestly this is madness.  Milan keeps reminding me that Christmas is in less than six months.  She can hardly contain herself – she’s THAT excited (LOL).  Just a reminder that the biggest sale of the year is coming up!  The Nordstrom anniversary sale early access starts on July 12th.  If you want some tips on how to shop this insane sale, click HERE.  It’s going to be pure chaos.  I will make sure to control the madness, decrease frustration and lower your anxiety so you can shop easily.  Now on to this weekend’s sales.  Get 50% off everything at Ann Taylor with code: SUMMERSTYLE (want THIS).  Loft is having 40% off with code: HBDUSA (ordered THIS).  My favorite sandals are 30% off and they are amazing!  Click READ MORE to view the full post.

It has been a week!  Yesterday I lost over 12,000 of Milan’s photos and videos on my iPhone.  No joke.  It’s all gone.  Lost forever.  My phone got disabled due to an incorrect passcode which makes NO sense because it’s the same one I use all the time and have never changed it.  Well apparently after so many attempts, your iPhone gets disabled and the only way to unlock it is to reset the phone back to factory mode.  Which basically means you lose EVERYTHING.

I tried to transfer everything over to my hard drive a couple weeks ago but kept getting errors so I gave up and put it off.  Well…lesson learned. Always back it up.  I don’t use iCloud which of course I regret.  I finally downloaded Google Photos and Shutterfly as backups.  I’m also going to put in a reminder for myself to transfer my photos/videos every month.  If the photos were of me or random things, I wouldn’t care but photos and videos of Milan?  My pride and joy.  She will never be this age again so I’m just sick to my stomach about it.  So if you learn anything from my mistakes, go and back up your photos and then back up your back ups!  Click READ MORE to view the full post.

You guys!  I’m alive!  It’s been officially 5 straight days with no breastfeeding.  I honestly wasn’t sure we were going to survive this weaning process but here we are.  It hasn’t been easy but Milan is a champ!  In case you need to wean your toddler, I wrote about my journey and what method I used here.  I’ve also enjoyed a cup of coffee every single day this week and I feel like a new woman.  So awake but slightly jittery.  My body is like what the heck is this? LOL

Here’s what’s happening this weekend as far as sales.  Get 40% off at Loft with code NEWNOW.  Ann Taylor is having 40% off full price tops and accessories.  Loving this polka dot bow sleeve top so much!  J.Crew Factory has so many cute new arrivals!  Get $25 off $100 with code MORE (some exclusions apply).  I have my eye on this textured ruffle tank, striped faux wrap dress and this seersucker apron dress.  Click READ MORE to view the full post.
