Snow Clothes and Coffee Sips {Sharing My Favorite Coffee Bar System}

Friday, March 24, 2017

My littlest snowboarder!! He was a daredevil and loved every minute.

This guys first time in the snow!

While the boys played we survived 6 kids in the snow! 

I got to take a weekend off from the restaurant and got to go up to the snow with some great friends.  The weather was perfect, the snow was beautiful and the change of scenery was much needed.  We took up the boys (I was so worried about Bronson not sleeping) for the weekend. Three couples, 6 kids, good food, better company.  We took the kids to the snow first thing on Saturday and Colton had been asking to snowboard, so we got him his first lesson.  He was a little champ, not scared at all.  I was a proud momma.

Having a weekend away was a nice recharge.  It was like the last couple of months come crashing down on you and while I'd love to have another hundred more like it, I'll take what I can get.  Until then, I'll settle for coffee.  It's the liquid gold I need to start my day.  A strong pot of coffee and a little vanilla creamer and I'm on cloud nine. Kev and I have been using our coffee maker that we received for our wedding until lately when we stepped it up and got the new Ninja Coffee Bar System.

 Nina Coffee Bar

 Ninja Coffee Bar
I received this product in exchange for my review, as always all opinions expressed are my own.

We absolutely love it. It's smartly designed, sleek and easy to use. Everything you need is built in, all but the grounds itself.  The built in frother is a true bonus that we take full advantage of.  The frother is Kevin's favorite part. Whether cold or hot, the frother works magic. The froth is thick but light and makes for amazing cappuccinos. The Ninja Coffee Bar also has a built in cleaning mechanism that automatically triggers a cleaning after every 60 brew.  I'm a little embarrassed to say that we've already had it trigger 2 cleanings.

Maybe I'll start getting more sleep at night and get to cut back on the number of cups I drink! Ya, one can dream, right?

Bodysuit and Fringe

Saturday, March 11, 2017

I can still remember back when I was 8 and lived in bodysuits.  I never thought that they'd make the come back that they have and that I'd rekindle my affliction for them like I have.  I mean, who doesn't like a top that always looks perfectly tucked in?  This camo body suit is so soft and fits true to size.  I love the easy wear ability and the camo print is great for casual days.  I paired them with an ultra light pair of cropped denim with fringe hem details.  These jeans are perfect for spring with an ankle length crop and the fun frayed hem adds just the right amount of fun to any look.  I whipped out this fantastic fringe bag and love this outfit for an easy to wear look.  

Another easy to wear look is my new favorite messy pony.  For those days when you just can't wash your hair (or don't want to- no judgment) this pony is the way to go.  I recently discovered the best new product for texturing my hair to give it that messy, undone look. The best part is you don't have to ruin your hair in the process.  Gone are the days of back combing and teasing.  This stuff is literally a tease in a bottle.  I added my favorite Irresistible Me extensions before I threw it up in order to give my pony a little more body and volume.  I used the small clip wefts and straightened them before angling them into my hair.  It adds that extra ump that makes it look ultra full. You can easily add more or less depending on how full you like it.  These extensions are so easy to clip in and out.  I opted for the longer length but have trimmed about a 1/3 of them so that I have more versatility. Extensions are the easiest way to completely transform a look without any commitment.  I love mine.
