the queen of eye candy

baby-jali wood photography, in my opinion, is THE ABSOLUTE BEST child’s photographer!! she “loves people, color, happy things, fun adventures, the sweetness of a child’s laugh and making smiles happen”…and i can attest to that!  the perfect combination to capture the heart of any precious child.

it’s what’s on the inside that counts

chevron-linersSoooo, while you’re being oh-so-patient on the refresh of brooke designs, here’s a little something I found - chevron drawer liners from Hammocks and High Tea (don’t you just love the name!).
1. They make your drawers look pretty.
2. They protect your drawers as well.
Two for the price of one - what a deal!

cruisin’

Republic Dutch BikeI love riding bikes…especially when the weather is sunny and cool AND especially when it is the cutest bike you’ve ever seen.  Republic Bikes has a fun site that allows you to design your own Dutch bike, choos­ing from a wide range of col­ors. For $399, they’ll ship the bike to your door (+$49 shipping).  Good exercise, good fresh air, and good lookin’.

b’s beauty tips

Rosebud SalveFor the woman on the go, who is either too busy to spend thirty minutes on her hair, too lazy to put on full make up, or has a crazy baby boy to take care of…I have the perfect solutions for you!  If I could only fill my small hobo bag with a few things, this is what would be in it:

C.O. Bigelow Menta Lip Shine and the Rosebud Salve…mmmm…I’m seriously addicted.

Any YSL Lip gloss for a touch of color.

Lancome mascara (my preference is Lancome Definicils Pro…to separate long lashes).

Jen’s natural deodorant.  Good for the paranoid woman (or husband), because it is allllll natural.

Any Frederic Fekkai hair products…for moi, the Beach Waves spray is perfect when I don’t have time to dry my hair  (which is usually 90% of the time).

And, lastly…if you could put her in your pocket, Nikki Wynn, The Makeup Junkie.

at least, it will be a pretty mess

Place matsNow that our little baby boy is not so much a baby anymore, we’ve learned that he can be quite a mess.  Sometimes, I don’t even know why I put on clean clothes anymore…(and this is just the beginning).  He’s eating meals with us now, and we’re learning that he would rather be playing than actually sitting (or standing as he likes to do) at the table.  I think these place mats are genius!  1.  He can look endlessly at all the little details.  2.  He can color in the lines and make them look pretty pretty!  (So, if he does make a mess, at least…)

fall is in the air

Fall ScarfI think Fall has to be my favorite season…being from Texas, it saves us from the heat with fresh, cool air that smells oh-so-good.  Plus, you get to start layering your clothes…AND, this piece of beautifulness is sure to top it off.
