Target Find

I'm all about a good, inexpensive find and this little number from Target fits the bill.
I searched high and low online and couldn't find it (so, so sorry!) but it should still be available in stores.
Dress found in store at Target (also love this, this and this) // Necklace// Bag- no longer available (but I love it in this fun color)// Pumps
The cutest little guy of all... somehow B managed to capture him sitting still for once!
Until next time-
Happy Tuesday!

Simple Homemade Granola

The options for homemade granola are endless and I'm not kidding when I say this stuff is almost impossible to mess up. You can sub any of the nuts/seeds/fruit to your liking or forgo the cinnamon and add PB2 powder! Add 1/4 cup granola and fresh berries to your morning yogurt for a nutrient dense breakfast thats sure to tide you over 'til noon. Makes approx. thirteen 1/4 cup servings.
Until next time-
Here's to the most important meal of the day!

Be My Valentine

The last few years, Brad and I have forgone dinner reservations on Valentines day and instead opt for a night in where we cook a nice meal for one another. It beats fighting the crowds and we always push ourselves to try cooking something new and different. This year is no exception, though tonight we'll be heading to "That Girl Can Cook" to learn how to prepare spanish tapas! I plan on wearing this comfy shift (likely with flats) to our date tonight.... 
Dress// Necklace (20% off today!)// Pumps
I love how a touch of pink and red in the dress (and my new kicks) hint at Valentines without being too overt. 
Until next time-
Here's to all things pink!

My Favorite Hair Hack

My hair is always flat because its fine and thick. There's nothing worse than flat hair, so I got creative recently and found a way to add volume to my mane without having to tease my roots. Here's the tutorial- this works on either fresh or day-old hair:
1.Wash hair and completely dry OR wake up and brush through hair. Spray with a touch of dry shampoo where necessary (day old hair is fine- grease is not.)
2. Bust out your favorite volumizing mouse. Add a small dollop to your finger tips (quarter size, max) and add to your roots. Yes- mouse on dry hair is weird, but follow me here...
3. Work mouse into roots all over your head... I usually do this in 3-5 small, separate segments (front left, back left, center, back right, front right.)
4. Flip over and shake and comb fingers through hair and roots for added volume..
5. Looking like a lion, but it sure gets big and fluffy! If I've got day old hair, I'll twist it back into a low bun but when my hair is clean, I'll leave it down and very lightly brush it through.
 Voila! The result is more natural looking than teasing and really is that easy. The more you shake/rub your hair while applying the mouse, the less crunchy it'll get. You can also blast your roots with a blow dryer very quickly if you've applied too much and it just won't seem to dry. 
Until next time-
What are some of your hair hacks?
