and a dash of leopard...Featuring Pink Blush

Happy Tuesday everyone! I cannot believe its already the last week of July! Where has this month gone? This summer has honestly been one of the best, and living in Tennessee has surprisingly felt like home. We do not want it to end! Tomorrows is Cayman's last day of gymnastics. I know he will miss it, and it makes me sad we can't keep him in longer. We leave for Utah in two weeks!! I miss our home, I cant wait to sleep in my big bed and have my closet space back. It's funny the little things you miss being away from home. I mostly just miss our friends and family, and cannot wait to see them all! We have a lot planned these next two weeks, so sorry if the blog seems a little dead for the next little while. I'll try my best to keep up on it. You can follow along on our adventures on my Instagram

Now what you've all been waiting for... ;) How cute is this top from Pink Blush? I don't know about you, but i've been obsessed with soft hues lately. My personal favorite is blush pink. It's just so classy and elegant to me, and I cant help but gravitate towards it. I paired this adorable top with a lace cutout skirt and of course a little dash of leopard from my heels and bracelet. Lets face it, leopard is totally a neutral in my opinion. Enjoy!

Toddler Threads...

I am a mother of two little miracles. My sons Cayman (2) and Beckham (9 months) were both born 13 weeks early, and are the bravest and most amazing little men I know. You can read about their story here. I've feature Beckham a few times, but wanted to do a post just for my little man Cayman. :) He was named after the Cayman islands, and the Porsche Cayman (the sports car), which is funny because he is overly obsessed with cars! I could go on and on about this little boy... He has taught me so much these last two years and is a constant reminder to me to love unconditionally. If you have ever met him, you know that he is one of the sweetest little boys you will ever meet. He genuinely loves every single person he comes in contact with. We've been teaching him sign language since the day we brought him home from the hospital, and he now knows 40+ signs, and is starting to talk in full sentences. He mostly talks about cars aka "vroom vrooms", notice the cars in each hand. ;) I was hoping to get some pictures with the both of us, but well... he's two. Enough said! ;) So without further ado, meet Cayman Lance! Happy, healthy, and totally obsessed with cars!

Any mom of boys will probably agree that it is a lot harder to find cute boy clothes, than it is for girls.  Luckily, I have found a few go to places for cute boy stuff. I will be sharing them with you in my future blog posts. My first go to place is H&M and Very Jane. I bought these adorable canvas shoes on Very Jane by Greenish, and he wears them all the time! They look almost identical to TOMS, but for a fraction of the price. :) If you want to find cute and affordable clothing, accessories, or kids items, check out Greenish Shop, and Very Jane!

We also had our family pictures taken a few weeks ago by the lovely Diane Kris Photography. I loved how she captured the sweet relationship Cayman and his daddy have. They are like two peas in a pod, and simply adore each other. I have the most amazing husband and two little boys in the world. I don't know what I did to deserve them, but I must have done something right. ;) Meet my family, "The Dyers." My husband Skyler, little Cayman, and baby Beckham. We hope you all have a great weekend! :)

<3 Bethany

Notice Caymans little yawn, it makes this picture my favorite. He looks like he's singing. ;)

Neon Accents featuring Kameleonz and ILY Couture

Happy Friday ya'll! What are your plans this weekend? I for one plan on spending lots of time outdoors with the kids soaking up the sun. Now that summer is in full swing, the days are longer, and the temperatures are getting hotter, I tend to always want to wear sunglasses! I'm glad to say I was able to whip out my new Kameleonz sunnies this weekend. These bad boys will be a go to for the summer and even into fall. I love the mirrored lenses and that they have interchangeable side arms, so you can wear them with any outfit. Oh, and they are polarized  UV400. Pretty sure my husband stole mine and wore them to work yesterday. Use code SUMMER to get your pair of Kameleonz sunnies for an extra 20% off! Hurry though, sale ends soon! 

Speaking of husbands, how adorable is this Wifey tee from ILY Couture? I love the fit and simplicity of it. Plus, I married a pretty amazing man, so ill take any excuse to show off my Wifey pride! I chose to pair it with boyfriend denim for a more casual look, but added some neon floral heels for a dash of femininity. I hope you enjoy! XOXO

My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks under $100

Well, the time has finally come! The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is open to the public, and lets just say Ive been browsing their site for a good two hours while my kids nap. Im sure ill find a million other things I want, but I wanted to share with you my favorites so far. If you follow me on instagram make sure to check there for updates on other items I find! Im all about a bargain, so I chose only items priced under $100 for all of you budgeting moms out there. I'm totally one of those people that can't justify $300 on a sweater. Im sorry, my kids would destroy that thing within 3 months. No thanks! Haha Happy shopping girls, and Happy Friday!!!


Soft hues featuring Marie Natie Cosmetics

Happy Friday Everyone! Today I am so excited to be collaborating with Marie Natie Cosmetics to give you my review on their all natural lip glosses. When it comes to makeup, I tend to gravitate towards the more "all natural" brands. I use Bare Minerals now, but am disappointed that a lot of their ingredients are not truly all natural. I will most likely switch to Marie Natie Cosmetics and use their pressed foundation, because they do not use bismuth oxychloride which can actually cause irritation or even acne! Marie Natie cosmetics are free of Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petro-Chemical,  and Phthalates. Their glosses are amazing! They gave my lips the perfect shine and shimmer for hot days out in the sun, and it felt light and smooth over my lips. I struggle with heavy thick glosses, because my hair tends to get stuck in the gloss. Please tell me i'm not the only one this happens to? The natural oils also keep my lips moisturized for hours and hours! They have a variety of soft to vibrant colors, my favorites are pink lady and cotton candy. Do you want to know the best part? Because Marie Natie just launched, everything is 30% off!! So, if you are like me and are on the hunt for a more all natural makeup, this would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try! HURRY before the prices go up!!
