1. STYLING: 

This braided headband style that I did a tutorial on in my last post. To watch the video scroll to the post below or click here. Try it out and let me know what you think!

2. WEARING: 

PJ's and workout clothes until 2 p.m. over here. Haha! I've been trying to workout during nap time so I can avoid interruptions and increase my personal zen. You mama's know what I mean.  Unfortunately that means putting off showering until that time as well. I'm probably being judged, but I couldn't care less because I'm so proud of myself for sticking with my new routine! 

3. EATING: 

Tacos, enchiladas, ya know. All the Mexican food. Because it's the way to Matthew's heart. Now if only I could get Turner to eat it, life would be perfect. 

4. WATCHING: 

Pysch. It's become my go to relax-and-laugh-while-the-kids-are-napping show. It's cheesy, goofy and quirky which has me laughing out loud more than I'd probably like to admit. 

5. LOVING: 

Our new king size bed. Seriously, I've never slept this good in my life. A review of our amazing mattress coming to the blog in the future! 

6. WANTING: 

All of the fall fashion and things. Like this amazing dress from Roolee Boutique! Sweaters, boots, pumpkin flavored everything and that crisp fall weather. It's my JAM. 


And just like that, the summer comes to an end. It's been one to remember! Before I sign off, I wanted to let you guys know that Roolee extended their end of summer clearance sale and it's all going like hot cakes! Go snag yourself some discounted goodies by clicking here and you can thank me later.

Life Lately || July
Life Lately || July || ADOS || Cheree Salter, styling, wearing, eating, watching, loving, wanting

1. STYLING:

Twisty updos to get my hair off of my neck and out of my face. Herriman is a pretty windy place, so I find myself pulling these long locks of mine up and out of the way 90% of the time. It's fun to finally be able to play around with styles like this on my own head of hair. 

2. WEARING:

Smiles and sunscreen! I've been making an effort to get outside more and it's doing Turner and I a lot of good. Also, loose shirts and skirts to keep cool in the summer heat.

3. EATING:

Teriyaki Turkey Lettuce Wraps. YUM! If you're like me and can't live without those carbs, try it over steamed rice. Equally delicious. 

4. WATCHING:

Lark Rise to Candleford is a BBC series on Hulu. Matthew and I are OBSESSED with BBC's. We just finished the first season. It's clean and we love it so far!

5. LOVING:

Making our house a home. I'm trying to be very conscious of what brings me joy and simplifying the clutter. Less is definitely more in the decor department for me these days. 

6. WANTING:

To stop time with this sweet baby boy! He is growing so fast, I can't believe it! He's 3 months old now, and 16 lbs. He's super chunky and that's just how we like 'em around here! I don't want to miss a thing, so I am taking our days one at a time and trying to cherish each snuggly baby moment. 


I know I've been MIA on the blog lately because of all of the things that come with a move, but I hope you all have had as lovely of a July as I have! It's been bittersweet and I'm learning a lot about myself through all of the change.

1. STYLING: 

Loose waves for daysss, using my 1" hot tools curling iron.  

2. WEARING: 

Bronzer on my face and peach colored cheeks for that perfect summer glow.

3. EATING:

Anything you can BBQ on the grill, hot dogs, chicken, burgers, and all of the good stuff that goes with it. Watermelon, salads, s'mores, and ice cream shakes. Okay let's be real, we have ice cream shakes every night.

4. WATCHING:

Inside Out was such a darling movie! I loved it so much! Some of my favorite actresses and actors made it the perfect amount of humor and tender emotions. 

5.  LOVING:

MY GRAY WALLS! The living room/kitchen is finished and I just love how finished it makes our house look. It's a big improvement from every wall, baseboard, and the ceiling being the exact same color. I can't wait to get some bright white on the ceiling and some glossy white on the doors and trim. It's going to look like a whole new home! :)

6.  WANTING:

This diaper bag. Oh man. All the heart eyes in the world. I want a new bag because mine is literally falling apart at the seams. Better life bags has perfect size bags and you can customize the way they look to fit your style! Really wanting it, bad.

 

Oh, and did I mention that we opened up our Etsy shop?! You can follow the link at the top of the page on the navigation bar, or click here to check it out! I hope everyone had a great month!

1. STYLING:

DIY-ing highlights and ombre because I'm too impatient to wait until I have money to get it done professionally. Also, lots of headband curl days happening lately. Tips and tricks to get the exact look your looking for will be shared on the blog soon! 

2. WEARING:

These ankle boots. ALL THE TIME. They're the perfect shoe for warm stormy weather which we've been getting a lot of lately. I found some that are identical pictured first below, and the other two I just love! 

3. EATING:

ENCHILADAS with Cilantro Lime Dressing. It's becoming one of my favorite meals. It's delicious, easy and yields lots of leftovers! My perfected recipe coming on the blog soon!

4. WATCHING:

Turbo. Turner LOVES race cars and this movie has been on repeat lately. We don't own many movies, especially animated ones, and so Netflix movies get lots of love at our house. Luckily, this is one I love to watch over and over again. It's so funny to me!

5. LOVING:

All of the moisture we've been getting lately! It's making my yard and everything SO GREEN! I love it so much! Also, the smell of rain is one of my all time favorites. It's an indescribable smell. It just smells fresh and clean. Do they make rain scented candles? If so, I need one in my house.

6. WANTING:

The perfect sunless tan. I'm going to the spa with my sister today and I'm seriously contemplating a Mystic HD Spray Tan. Call me crazy, but being tan everywhere without the damage might be worth the risks of obvious fake bake. I know Maskcara has posted about achieving the perfect sunless tan with Tanwise Mouse. I might need to try that instead if I chicken out today. Wish me luck!

 

That's my life lately! Thanks for reading and have a super rad weekend!

1.   STYLING:

Glamorous Twisted Chignon Updos. You can find my tutorial on my last post or by clicking here

2.   WEARING:

My Babe Hair Extensions and pink lips are happening on the DAILY over here. I love that spring is here! My wardrobe could use some serious spicing up, but for now the lip will do.

3.   WATCHING:

The Last Man on Earth. OH MAN. It's funny, but I've started to predict everything that happens. Hopefully Phil, aka Tandy, gets a break soon.

4.   EATING:

THIS SANDWICH. Fried egg. Ham. Cheese. Caesar Dressing. Pickle.  So delicious. 

5.   WANTING:

Maskara Cosmetics HAC Pack!!! I cannot stress enough how badly I want this, guys. I'm saving up my money and this WILL BE my next purchase. 

6.   ASPIRING:

If you read my post on Monday you already know about my Cinderella experience. I'm aspiring to be more courageous and kind.  Especially the courage part. Being somewhat timid by nature, this has always been one of my weaknesses. It's often hard for me to find the courage to introduce myself to a stranger, serve someone in need, ask for help when I'm struggling or frustrated with something,  and take a risk regardless of my fear of rejection or failure.  So today I'm trying my best to be a little more brave and a lot more kind. I'm going to do things that are out of my comfort zone. I'm going to do things I wouldn't normally do. I'm going to have the initiative to follow through with my dreams and goals. I hope you will too. 

I hope everyone has been having a great month. Can you believe that it's almost May? Stay tuned for my birth story next week. I've been working on it for over 6 months, so it had better be good! Planning a lot of fun posts for the future, so I hope you keep following along!
