Stop & Smell the Roses: Week 11 - Mommy Indulgences

Yay! It's Wednesday! Which means, it's time for our weekly link up with House of Rose!

This week I have a TON TON TON to be excited about and thankful for. I make sure to give you all a personal Thank You in my vlog, but I just have to say again how incredibly blessed my mom and I are to have such wonderful, supportive friends out there. Our NEW SHOP has had an INCREDIBLE first week and we couldn't be more excited. It's the perfect Mother's Day gift for both of us :-)

And speaking of Mother's Day...I wanted to share some of my favorite products and mommy indulgences with you today. I figure if there is one time a year a mom can justify spending too much money on's Mother's Day :-)

Thanks for watching friends!! Here are links to all of the products I talked about in my video today.


  1. omg! you are going to RPM? You HAVE to update the blog next week letting us all know how it was. we were going to go when we were downtown last week for my bday but I already had my heart set on NoMi and RPM wasn't open for lunch. I LOVE LOVE LOVE B&G!!!! Happy Mother's day!

  2. You're too damned cute. ;-)

  3. You are just too good at this video stuff my friend! :) I may definitely need to try this Benefit yesterday! So glad your shop opening went so well! It will just keep taking off...I know it! fact...I think I just got a package delivered to my door...gotta run. ;)

  4. So glad you don't have that weird lady sitting next to you blinking and acting like a goof! Oh wait...that was me!

  5. Okay, first things first...I've pretty much peed my pants when your dog came running in the room looking like an adorable little cotton ball with legs. BAHA! I sooo wanna dog sit for you <3

    Secondly, I NEED that Benefit Erase Paste something awful. The bags are ridiculous, and I don't even have children yet. Can you imagine the state of my face in another 3-5 years when my kiddies are running all over the place pooping me out even more? I'll frighten people away and make them cry. Thanks for sharing your special bag eraser - you're a God send.

    I've already told you this in txt, but again - I'm SO jealous of your dinner date this weekend! I hope you and Eric have the most yummy meal ever, accompanied with extra Birthday wine :) xoxo

    P.S. You're adorable and your accent is the best.
    P.P.S. Polka Dot Posie rocks! So happy that you and your Mom are so successful! :)

  6. I love watching you on camera! Not in a creepy way of course. But you're just so warm and loving and friendly!!

    1. Benefit is the BEST. I use their beauty boxes. I just got Hervanna and I love it- perfect pink blush for summer.
    2. I need to convince Mark that we need to make another weekend trip to Chicago to eat at their restaurant. You must let me know how it is.
    3. Books- did you read Bloom yet???
    4. When are we running a race???


  7. So RPM was pretty fancy as were the prices! :) Actually, just looking at the menu, it doesn't look to expensive, but everything is priced individually. Your appetizer, your entree, you side dishes, your salad, the bread, etc. We spent $85ish & still left not feeling too satisfied! The food was delicious, but the portions are just small! FYI!! :)Thanks for sharing your mommy indulgences!! The Benefits Cosmetics Erase Paste sounds like something I could use! And all that talk about coffee makes me want to brew a pot like NOW!!!

  8. You are so great on camera! Love, love your vlogs! :) I missed getting to watch the videos last week, but Mandy mentioned your new shop and I can't wait to check it out!! Also, seriously considering checking out the Origins skincare items! Thanks for sharing!!

  9. I an moisturizer obsessed so I need to try your recommendations :) Also, I was laughing at your dog in the background. So funny!
