Landon's 1st Birthday!

I know it's such a cliche to say but in all honestly, how is my little man seriously turning ONE tomorrow?! I'm so sad and happy all at the same time. We were actually really excited to celebrate his first birthday with family this past weekend. In all honesty, I wasn't even thinking of a party for him because of just being up in Chicago but Zach's parents and my incredible SIL's were amazing and actually planned everything FOR me. Am I lucky or what?!
We had the party at the farm that my in laws live on. I think Lily will adore her time out there this summer when we're gone on vacation for a week because she has so much room to run around. I loved being able to see all of Zach's family members including cousins we haven't seen in months, old high school and college friends of ours and just feel so much love for our little guy. The last time we had such a great fun birthday was actually for Lily's 1st birthday ( but we had a blast with our Atlanta friends for  Lily's 2nd birthday too! )
My nephews birthday was back in October and because I didn't want to make a huge deal on the party, she offered to throw the same theme that they did! "Where The Wild Things Are" happens to be one of my favorite books as kid so it seemed like the perfect theme for our crazy little man, who gave us quit the wild year!
From crazy break outs, to new allergies, to crazy sicknesses and taking it all like a champ. He's such a calm, relaxed and sweet little boy. I'm trying to soak it all in before this little guy gets a little too wild in the next few years! You boy moms can relate I'm sure. Zach and I actually started laughing because there seemed to be more kids at our son's party this year since we were able to celebrate it with so many family members/cousins! I think Lily didn't even know what to do with herself!

Hope you all had such a great weekend and I'm off to get things ready for our little guy's big day tomorrow! #DairyFreeEverything

The Number 1 Item I Use To Get Off Stubborn Makeup

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.

Ugh, washing your face is such a chore. Your bed seems to be the comfiest when your eyeliner needs to be washed off. What’s a girl to do? Quick makeup removal doesn’t have to be the worst; you just need to trick yourself into taking the extra step.

Going to bed with a face full of makeup is so not good for your skin. Imagine all of that foundation, sweat, and pollution you’ve encountered clogging your pores. Not to mention all of the dead skin cells that have accumulated throughout the day. Yuck!

Still not motivated enough to scrub your pores? Well, think of your poor sheets. You (or your parents) spent a lot of money on those fancy pillow shams. Staining them with your makeup residue is super preventable. Also, think of the amount of time you are saving yourself from doing laundry later.

You've taken the time to apply your makeup, so you should take the time to remove it. Even a simple wipe down with a cloth will do. Eye makeup residue can cause painful styes while clogged pores can cause cystic acne. Basically, makeup is the best, but also the worst. Don’t be overpowered by your laziness. Here's the only thing I need to get off my stubborn makeup.

Use Neutrogena™ Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelette- I've used plenty of cleansing towelettes but none have been able to really get off all my stubborn makeup except one.  Neutrogena™ Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes  has been my go too over the years for several reasons.  It's actually the #1 choice of makeup artists because of it's super ultra soft makeup remover including helping to remove that stubborn makeup, especially waterproof mascara. I also love that you don't need to rinse after using these towelettes and it is easy to clean without leaving any residue behind!
I was able to get these towelettes at my local Walmart in the skincare area. It's always a favorite one stop shop for me to get everything I need, especially when I want to get a great nice sleep, with a clean fresh face thanks to Neutrogena™ Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes!

Summer Amazon Favorites!

Raise your hand if you just want to bypass spring and head right into summer?! :: raises hand :: Yup! This girl right here just wants to already get rid of all the snow that's hanging out here in the Chicago area and get right to the bright sunshine, blue skies and 80 degree weather! 

So, I thought why not get a jump start and share a few of my summer favorites that I hit execute on the cart and can't wait for these goodies to get here! Some are on SUPER sale right now that I had to snag while others like those adorable sandals are going to be coming in a few weeks. I mean, I can't say no to gold and pink right?! 

That sun tanning lotion is ah-maz-ing friends! I'm trying to wear more of that when the warmer weather hits to be a bit more skin cautious. Those tanning beds got me in college so I'm trying to set a better example for my little ones to always wear lotion ( plus it's so easy to put on and stays on FOREVER! ) 

Alright check out all my favorites that Amazon has going on and tell me what you're super excited for summer! Are you anxious to try out a new sun tan lotion? What about the cutest straw hat?! I can't wait to hear!
