Beauty Favorite {organix}

I have been using the organix coconut shampoo & conditioner for many months. This week I came across the moroccan argan oil conditioner & am loving it. The organix products are free of parabens and sulfates. The conditioner leaves my hair feeling light and moisturized. You can find their products at Target.

A cozy sweatshirt is a must for fall and why not get a spiced up version of the plain old crew? I am liking the details around the neck as well as the longer length {perfect covering my bootie while wearing leggings}. I am already picturing myself wearing this at a banana boat bonfire!

One watch.One tree.One planet. Do you LOVE our planet? I sure do! And so does WeWOOD. These eco luxury watches are made of wood & each time one is purchased a tree is planted. I absolutely love the philosophy of WeWOOD. I hope I get one of these unique beauties for my birthday {I am already making up a birthday list! even though it is 2 months away}.

I believe in the power of prayer. Do you? I know that our Heavenly Father hears our prayers & answers them in his time & his way. It has been an emotional week.  With out prayer I would not be the happy person that I am.

I have been painting, crafting, gluing, hanging & getting creative trying to finish up a project.  I probably should have worn gloves, my hands are thrashed & it's my sister's wedding {hoping I can clean & scrub really hard to get them looking fresh}. I will try to post photos once I am finished...

A little silk {buckskin}

Perfect for lounging around the house on warm evenings. Rompers are so cozy & always hide the love handles after eating a few bowls of gelato. Don't forget to pick up the matching robe & bralette set.

FIVE and counting...

Time is moving too quickly. It seems as if it was only a year ago that we were standing on the cliff in the breeze being married. The past five years have been the funnest years of my life; moving out of state, traveling to remote islands, being sealed in the temple, moving back to the beach, buying our first home, graduating, job searching, bringing our little love thor into our lives, embarking on the journey to parenthood. I could not ask for another friend & lover, we are perfect for one another. I love you bu.

Weekend View

Started out the weekend with date night. Stopped & saw Thunder {Thor's son} they look so much alike. Although Thor is a total lover, Thunder not so much.

Dinner & Dessert at The Prime Cut. The fish was tasty, the flourless cake was the best! Love me some chocolate flourless cake with vanilla bean ice cream. I devoured the entire plate! Headed to the movies to  see 17 miracles {about the Mormon pioneers very emotional & informative}.

Spent Saturday at my favorite spot, the beach. Tons of friends, warm sunshine, waves & reading.

Partied with these lovelies {bride to be & groom to be}. Can not wait for the wedding!

My gorgeous sister the future bride.

Having fun in our colorful outfits!

Ended the night chaperoning the LDS youth dance. A little trip down memory lane.

Sunday Funday. Relaxing at the park under the shade of the trees.
