Real Wives Please Stand Up!

We are all guilty!

We love watching the Housewives Series!  ATL and NYC are my faves!  There are several spin offs to the "Wives" show.  We got Mob, Football, Baseball, X Games, Hip Hop and of course the infamous Basketball Wives!  That is when it all went H-E double hockey sticks!

Play Clothes Shopping

Happy Friday!  Safe travels to everyone over this holiday weekend.  I will be chillin at home!  Can't wait!

I since our Chicago trip I have scaled back on the shopping for Peyton.  I know its only been 2 weeks but that is a long time in our world.  She needed some more play clothes for the summer.  I headed to my number 1 play clothing spots!  Walmart and Target!

I picked up these two cute summer tanks by Garanimals from Walmart for $2.44 each.  See Peyton already working one of the tops HERE!

Picked up two more for 4th of July festivites!

Eyebrows 101

I get compliments on my eyebrows but I can't take credit because they are not really mine : ). I do get them threaded but they need a lot of help.  Below are my brows finished and ready to go!  But I will show you how I get here.  Disclaimer: I am NOT a makeup artist I just try to figure out what works for me.

Neiman Marcus Introduces Luxury Essentials

Are you tired of your ratty Tee's?  Well Neiman Marcus has a solution.  Neiman Marcus introduces us to Luxury EssentialsLuxury Essentials is a collection of wardrobe basics made of high quality fabrics like silk, linen and cotton blends.  Luxury Essentials are everyday, chic and comfortable pieces we all would love to wear.
Each item has expert draping and flattering cuts that will make every woman look and feel great!

Yes!  The Luxury Essential pieces feel as soft as they look! 
I am wearing the Luxury Essential Loose Slub Tee made of 100% linen. This top fits like a tunic.  I love that it covers my bum.

This top is the perfect Luxury Essential!  I can throw it on with some leggings and flats to run to the store or take Peyton to play.  I plan to wear it as a cover up to the pool this summer.  Perfect Hampton's chic look!  Maybe I will get invited to a P Diddy party in the Hampton's, I can rock this outfit.

The top has a cotton look but it is 100% linen.  Can you imagine how soft it is?  Normally linen wrinkles like crazy.  I sat in traffic with this shirt over an hour wearing this shirt and it did not wrinkle! 

Full launch of Luxury Essentials is coming in the fall so you guys are getting the inside scoop!  I would love to add the blazer cardigan and the Loose Slub Tee in black to my wardrobe.  Which pieces would you love to have as your Luxury Essentials?

*I was given a item from the Neiman Marcus Luxury Essentials collection for review.  Opinions are my own.

Cupcakes by Cocktail Cupcakes infused with Hpnotiq Harmonie.  Cupcakes + liquor = Amazing!

Shady Mama

Everyone should wear shades all year long, just not at night : )  Summer is fast approaching so it's time to make sure you are on your Eye Candy game!

Here are 3 styles that you must have for the summer!


Ray Ban Wayfarer
These are classic and look good on everyone.  Basic black ones are great but why not get some in a fun pattern or bold color.  Perfect when you are rocking a fedora with a maxi dress.

Cat Eye
Elizabeth and James Lafayett Cat Eye
The Tom Fords (which I love) may be a bit extreme for some.  So the Elizabeth and James are the perfect mix of oversize and cat eye.  These go with everything.  I would sport these when wearing a top bun. 


Aviators will NEVER go out of style so it is worth investing some money in a great pair (just don't sit on them).  Aviators look awesome with everything.  Always fun to wear a girly dress and rock it out with some aviators.

Are you on your eye candy game?  Which style is your favorite?  How many pair of sunglasses do you have in rotation for the summer?

Manicures & Martinis

While in Chicago I tried to spend time with my all my girls.  What better way to have a Ladies Night then to go to the Beauty Bar Chicago!  This place is incredible!  You can have drinks, dance and get your nails done!

I wore a Betsy Johnson Vintage Collection top.  I got this top before I was even pregnant with Peyton and this was my first time wearing it.  Elie Tahari jeans.  Shoes Christian Louboutin.  Earrings from Pretty Girl Glam.  Did you hear that Betsy Johnson is closing it's doors!  According to MSN all the stores will be having sales to get rid of merchandise! 
Look how cute this place is!  It has that old Hollywood glam look.
Getting my nails done while sipping on a martini!

Windy City Mama showed up to hang out with me!  Isn't she a sexy mama!  We had a good time sipping drinks!  Did you peep the hair dryer chairs in the background?

My longtime girlfriend Aiesha came out to party with me.
She showed up with this bag!  I told her if she is carrying that bag, all drinks are on her!  LOL!  Thanks for the drinks Aiesha!  Let me know when I can rent your Hermes!

Have you been to a "Beauty Bar" ?  How I wish they had this in Atlanta, I would be there every week!

Linking up with Monday Mingle with Momtrends, Glamamom, and Bon Bon Rose Girls

Weekend Chicago Style

I wanted to say Happy Mother's Day again to you ladies!  I hope you had a great one!

Just I suspected (and checking the weather) Chicago was pretty cool and rainy compared to Atlanta.  It was 80 when we left Atlanta and low 60s in Chicago!  Don't you hate packing for a whole other season?

For the cool weather Peyton is wearing a cardigan by Imoga from Gilt Groupe, tank from H & M.  Levi Bootcut jeans from Marshall.  Leopard mary janes from Target.

While in Chicago, my BBF and I took our girls to get there toes done.  Peyton surprised me and did really well and sat there like a big girl!  Yes that is an blue extension in her hair.  It came with her happy meal.

I can't wait to take Peyton in the future to get her nails done.  Now maybe I can enjoy a pedicure instead of rushing.  Do you take the kids to the nail shop?

Moms Night out with Stilettos & Diaper Bags

Happy Mother's Day the Moms, Grandma, Aunts and Sisters!!!  I hope you are enjoying your day!

Peyton and I finally made it back to Atlanta from our tour : ).  It was a long week but I had to opportunity to meet some of my bloggy pals while I was in Chicago! 

I met up with Super Mom Lisa from Stilettos and Diaper Bags.  We enjoyed a (or two...) drinks over dinner.  We laughed and talked like old girlfriends!  Lisa is so cute and works so hard for her family!  She is truly a Rockstar Mom!  Love her maxi dress paired with moto jacket.

I am wearing my Kardashian Kollection blazer from Sears, H&M tank, with salmon colored jeans from Marshalls.

Always good to get out with fellow mommies!
