Mini TheMrsGibby

Oh goodness gracious guys. I about fell over when I saw these pics of my sweet Liv. I gotta give props to the mom's out there that make taking pictures with your kids look super easy. I felt like a hot mess when we took these. I want these shoots to be all about my baby girl(y'all see enough of me haha), but I am so happy that Maura got so many great shots of my girl and I too. Speaking of Maura, she is seriously the cutest little photographer and has such a talent behind the lens. She captured Liv's personality so well and I look forward to working with her again!

3 Monkeys graciously gave Liv and I matching "I woke up like this" sweatshirts and we had such a ball wearing them. The sweatshirts range from 2T to Adult XL and are seriously so soft. Liv and I both may have fell asleep in them after our photoshoot :) I paired Liv's with polka dot baby legs and an adorable messy bow from Ruby Blue Inc

This little dress from 3 monkeys I am head over heels in love with! Lemons, Neon Pink Lemonade stands, tiny drinks with straws.. I mean seriously! The peter pan collar could not be more adorable and I love each and every detail on this dainty little dress. That is one of my favorite things about shopping at 3 Monkeys, their clothing is so unique, yet still comfortable for a baby to wear.

Floral Pants






Top JCP Nicole Miller // Pants JCP (love these)// Shoes Steve Madden // Bag Tory Burch (love this one) // Necklace Purple Peridot c/o // Bracelet Sira Mara c/o Happy Wrist c/o // Watch MK 

One of my favorite trends for Spring is floral pants. I know florals, for spring, groundbreaking! 
All kidding aside, these pants are crazy flattering and such a great deal! I paired mine with a lace peplum and my favorite green pumps. I threw on a blazer and wore this to work a couple weeks ago. I have my eye on these from nordstrom and these from zara.

I have to mention the gorgeous flowers in the background! My jaw literally dropped when I saw those huge tulips! How gorgeous are they? 

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Top Crystal Feather Boutique (only $28!) c/o // Jeans F21 (similar)(obsessed with these!) // Necklace Mindy Mae Market (great layering piece!) c/o Love always couture c/o // Heels 6pm (love these and these) // Rings Wrenn Jewelry c/o // Watch MK // Bag Tory Burch (on sale!) // Bracelet Tj Maxx

I love this baseball top from Crystal Feather Boutique. It is such a great color combo and I love that its chiffon and not your typical cotton baseball shirt. I paired it with my favorite destroyed denim and pink heels. I later switched out the heels for flat sandals and it was just as cute. I plan on wearing this top with a frilly skirt later this season. Crystal Feather is restocking this top, so be sure to keep you eye out for the restock notification on their instagram!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!

Beauty Loves

Hey dolls! I got some emails to share a few more of my beauty favorites, so here we are again! As I mentioned before, I am no guru, but I will share with you what works for me!

Curling Iron. 

I probably get asked this more than anything. I use 2 curling irons and for different reasons. I use the Wigo 1 inch for every day curls. I find that this curling iron gives me natural wavy curls. They also seem to hold better with this curling iron. I use Hot Tools 1 inch barrel for more tight curls. For some reason this iron REALLY curls my hair. I have naturally wavy hair, so it doesn't take too much to get it to curl. I have yet to master the wand. You would think I would have by now with as much as I curl my hair. Maybe one day :) I also think Conair curling irons from Drug Stores are just as good as wigo, just don't last as long. 

First I must say I have never used Lattisse. I did some research before buying Neulash a couple years ago and just decided to go that route. I had to stop using this when I got pregnant, but I really love this product. I started back up again and I cant wait to see my lashes start growing. I already have pretty long lashes, but this product makes them even longer and helps mine curl! It is a bit pricey, but the tube does last a long time. 

I mentioned last month that I am learning some highlighting/contouring techniques. I am definitely still learning, but I LOVE this compact. The Kitten powder is the perfect shade to highlight your brows, cupids bow, cheeks and the corners of your eyes. I have been using Shroom by mac the past couple of months for my eyes, but this has replaced it. 


I got some new gorgeous colors for the spring/summer recently. Mac Up the Amp and Chanel La Diva are two of my favs.

Face Products

I have pretty sensitive skin on my face. I have never had bad skin, just the occasional breakout. Certain products like Nars Blush, i cant use because I have an allergic reaction to it. I know its so strange! So I have to use all natural products to cleanse and hydrate my face. I have been using Simple the past 6 months and love it! It is a brand the company I work for makes and is sold at drug stores. My skin is crazy soft and if I do have a breakout, its gone in a day! I use the moisturizer, face wipes, and cleanser. I am still looking for an amazing under eye treatment, so if you know of any awesome ones please tell me!

This stuff is literally yummy! My lips get pretty dry and putting lipstick on dry lips is just well gross. This product moisturizes and exfoliates your lips. I use it probably 2-3 times a week now. 

Well there are a few more of my current favorites. If you have any questions about make up, hair products etc.. leave a comment or email me!

Oh and Liv wants to say hi :)

Have a great weekend!!

Neon Mix

Top Savoir Faire c/o(call in store!) (love this one) // Jacket Savoir Faire (love this neon one)// Jeans Joe Fresh (ordered these)// Necklace Savoir Faire c/o // Shoes Asos(similar and similar) // Bag Tory Burch (love this one)// Bracelets Cathryn Ann c/o Mindy Mae Market (staple bracelet!)// Watch MK (on sale!) // ring Love Always couture c/o

I am always drawn to colorful tops. I spotted this top right when I walked into Savoir Faire and I knew I had to have it. The color combination is unique and I love the cut. I paired it with a neon Chartreuse jacket to bring out the same color in the top. I topped it off with a statement necklace and my favorite cobalt heels and headed out to dinner with my husband. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Palm Leaf

Dress OASAP c/o (great quality!) // Bag Tory Burch (love this and love this one for Summer) // Shoes Jessica Simpson (last year) (love these (on sale!) and these) // Necklace old (love this one) // Bracelet Dillards (love these) Taara Jewelry c/o // Hat Savoir Faire (similar)

I have been shopping for our upcoming beach trip and I have been loving all the tropical prints out this season. I fell in love with this palm leaf dress from OASAP. I removed the straps because I like the clean off the shoulder look. I paired it with a tropical leaf necklace and my favorite floppy hat. I cant wait to wear this on the beach later this summer. This dress also comes with a belt, so it can be worn as a tunic with a pair of white skinnies too. 

Speaking of beach trip, the past monthI have finally gotten my workout routine back in check and I have not felt this great in awhile! I haven't mentioned this before on the blog, but when I got pregnant, my thyroid got out of whack and then after I had Liv it go even worse! I mainly had the exhaustion side affect and really dry skin. I recently got my medication regulated and my energy is back. It is a tricky thing to get regulated, but luckily I haven't had any serious issues. So all this rambling is because I want to mix up my routine and I am wondering if anyone has tried the T25 workout routine? I am very interested and I would love to hear some feedback!

Don't forget to check out ShopBop's Friends and Family Sale. This is the time to snatch up a nice pair of denim or a fun spring/summer handbag for 25% off.  Use Code INTHEFAMILY14 at checkout!

Ruffled Lace

Top Riffraff c/o // Blazer old (similar) // Jeans flying monkey (love these) // Heels Zara (old, similar) // Necklace Savoir Faire c/o (old, love this) // Braclets Mindy Mae Market, Loves Affect c/o // Watch MK

My love for lace continues with this gorgeous top from Riffraff. I LOVE the oversized ruffle hem and how easily it can be dressed up or down. I layered it with a pink blazer for work, but I think this top would be adorable over a swimsuit and some shorts this summer. Its natural for me to reach for pearls every time I wear lace. I adore this bracelet from Mindy Mae's Market. It can be worn with so much and is just so gorgeous. It was such a windy day when we took these photos, I should have posted a few of the outtakes. My hair was a MESS! haha

Today kicks off ShopBop's Friends and Family Sale. This is the time to snatch up a nice pair of denim or a fun spring/summer handbag for 25% off. Below are a few things I have my eye on. 

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
