Color me mine

We finally saw a day without rain, and it's certainly been something to cheer about.  The cheery sunshine has brought out the playfulness in me that decided to give color blocking a try. It's such a fun trend and I'm loving it!

Lean Back

"Some of the secret joys of living are not found by rushing from point A to point B, 
but by inventing some imaginary letters along the way"
- Douglas Pagels

We dropped JJ off with grandma for a few hours and headed out for a stroll. One of the keys to a healthy relationship is the communication factor. Jerrid and I love going for walks, sitting down, and just talking to one another. It's so special to us, and it never gets old. We strolled around for a bit and sat around on these random stairs, snapped some photos, and headed out before I was completely eaten alive by mosquitos. Next time...I will remember to bring some Off spray!

Light Wash

I love how versatile this shirt from Express is. Paired up with jeans it makes for a nice, casual outfit, ready to run the errands for the day and cool enough to manage in the heat.  The shoes are my favorite part of this outfit. These Ralph Lauren shoes are so comfortable and believe it or not, I found them at Ross Dress For Less for $27.99! You never know what goodies you can find in discount stores such as Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshalls...I've struck gold in there many-a-times!

Today was a very laid back day for me. JJ and I took a nap, watched television and did some grocery shopping. I'm still recovering from our busy day in the sun yesterday. 

For my makeup I went very light. I'm using my Yves Saint Lauren foundation in #7 which is a very light foundation, perfect for the hot summer. On my eyes I used my Urban Decay NAKED palette, using just 2 colors; "Toasted" all over the lid, and "Sin" as a highlight.  I lined my eyes with my NARS cream eyeliner, applied mascara and that was it on the eyes.  The blush I'm wearing is MAC "Mighty Aphrodite" which is one of my favorite products of all time. On my lips I'm wearing Napoleon Perdis lipgloss in "French Pink" which is another one of my favorite products of all time.

First of the Month

Today was all about family and fun. I've wanted to take JJ to the Miami Seaquarium for the longest, and today was the perfect day to go.  The Weather Channel predicted rain, but I knew that it was going to be a perfectly sunny day, I felt it in my gut. I was right. 

Here are some photos from the Miami Seaquarium and the beach we went to afterwards. The day was gorgeous and JJ had so much fun. It was a perfect day...a perfect way to start the month!

JJ see. JJ do.

Key Biscayne Beach

Afterwards, we headed out towards on the beach on Key Biscayne to run around in the low tide.  It was so beautiful! The water was warm and the waves were gentle.  JJ had so much fun!

Today was perfect.
