Iphone diaries that are long overdue | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Iphone diaries that are long overdue

I have't done iphone diaries in what seems like forever!! I am the worst at remembering to take pictures of things on my phone but I LOVE doing iphone diaries because then I remember all the little random things I did! I forced myself to remember to get a few pictures and viola. Some of these are like from February... shows you how often I take pictures of things besides wood signs. Anyways, here goes some things from the past little while!


I got a new foundation! I love using this one or my airbrush system when I actually take the time to get ready. I've used powder bare mineral foundation for a million years so I wanted to try a liquid for once because I needed to branch out. This is the Loreal true match lumi foundation and I loveee how it looks!! So yes, documenting was 100% necessary.


Spray tan probs, you guys. That is all.


This is what over 150 pieces of wood looks like! We've used almost all of it by now so it's time to restock! Basically if anyone ever wants to do some sweet revenge on us, burn down our garage. Because that would suck. So praying no enemies are reading this right now ;) 


From that time we were "models" for Fat Cats and got free cups. That model story is a good one for another day. Basically they brought us in (free labor!) and they also brought in paid models in case we didn't show up. So imagine how awkward it was when everyone showed up! But yes, story for another time. It's juicy.
 

Last boutique of March! I always haveeee to document my booth even though it looks the exact same each time I set up. 


Strawberry obsession is REAL. We have 4 cartons in the fridge right now. Oh, and price match the crap outta those, I got them for .87 cents each when I price matched this week. The strawberry Gods knew that my strawberry cravings are out of control right now so it was a sign that I needed to stock up when they were so dang cheap. Oh and those ham roll things in the back are SO GOOD. Make them right now, the recipe is here.


In case you didn't see on my instagram, Jason's team won their soccer championship! Since he plays year round and it costs $ to get in, I usually only go to his finals games to watch him play. I was so proud of him for winning! I usually veto the "let's take home the trophy" idea because, well, where do you even store that?? But he promised we would keep it at his parents. Oh, ps it's still in our living room haha Usually I cross my fingers someone else on the team wants it but no one volunteered. So we have a new trophy decor!


New phone means I needed a new case! I designed this one on CaseApp and I was so happy with it! Since gold is my favorite thing ever and I loved the marble look, I mixed the two and came up with this design! If you make a case on there (you need to!) and want this pattern, let me know and I'll send it to you :) 


Lastly! yes I know, I am a strong advocate for sunless tanning! BUT I am so pasty white because I'm inside all day so I decided to break my rule and decided to get some vitamin D this morning. I finally started reading that book, too! I wasn't going to mention it BUT I really really really want to do natural labor. Not because I'm crazy haha, it's just something I've felt I've always wanted to do! So now is the time to prepare and hope I can do it! Wish me luck! If any of you did natural labor, PLEASE give me your tips.

  1. i had a really awesome natural birth experience, I am really happy that I prepared for one and went through with it. it was such a great experience for me! here's a link to my birth story if you'd be interested: http://everythingwithloveblog.com/2014/08/30/our-birth-story/ also, i highly suggest both ina may's guide to childbirth and guide to breastfeeding. take them with a grain of salt, because they're pretty hippie/crunchy, but have lots of good tips. my biggest piece of advice is to take classes that cater to natural birth preparation, and really tell yourself that birth isn't painful, it's just very very uncomfortable. :) i swear that switching my mindset up is what helped me be successful!

  3. You go girl!! I've missed your iPhone diaries. Such a fun post. That iPhone case is PRETTY!!! I probably need a new one. I always keep the same one on until it breaks lol. Okay, and before I even clicked on this post I was like, "wow her skin looks good I bet that's the airbrush thing." Loreal?!?! I would have never guessed! And maybe I've asked you this before, but are those sandals those "jesus" sandals? Do you know what I'm talking about? I love them. (I am such a creep about wanting to know where you get everything hahaha, sorry!)

    1. Thank youuu! haha and I am the same way, I used to have tons of cases and now I just stick to one for a while. And yes, I was surprised, too!! My friend recommended the loreal foundation so I wanted to try it and I really like it! and yessss, my Jesus sandals are my favorite things haha I got them from abcstores.com :) or basically any Hawaiian website, or I guess you can get them straight up from Hawaii, too. k not a creep!! We have similar styles and I'm glad there's someone out there who doesn't think my Jesus shoes are actually hobo shoes

  7. Love these posts! Your iPhone case is awesome. I had one birth with an epidural and one without because Emmy came so fast. If I knew that another childbirth would be as fast as hers I would totally do natural again.

  8. I've always thought I would never ever ever do an unmedicated birth, buuuuut lately I've been reading all these birth stories and I'm like yeah! I'm going to do it unmedicated!
