Cutest Graphic Tees ever!!

We love these Best friends tees so much! Feeling oh so patriotic in their Red, white and Navy! We cant wait for the 4th its pretty much our fav holiday!

Even though these two fight like sisters (go figure) I usually end up tickling Kate after diaper changes she will reach out for Joss and say “Help me!” Joss always yells back “NEVER!” Some times Joss is too cool for her kid sister but most of the time they really are the best little buddies.

Lately their favorite game to play is the punching game. They take turns sticking their chests out and letting other punch them. I have no idea why I let it happen but they just cant stop laughing their heads off so I allow it. At least I will until they can actually hurt each other. I really need to catch it on video cause its hilarious!  We got these cute graphic tees from The Blue Envelope home of the happy alphabet tees! Love this company and all they stand for! follow them on instagram @the_blue_envelopeBest Friend TeesBest Friend Tees Best Friend Tees Best Friend Tees Best Friend Tees mama tee. Best Mama tee

Low Braid & Side Swept Curls

 

 

Loving this hairstyle for a beachy summer wedding! It has a touch of old hollywood glam and makes me feel a little bit like Jessica Rabbit which is pretty rad!

I feel like I must mention how much I adore this casual summer dress that I got for $11 from Downeast Basics I’ll link you straight to it here. Hurry and snag one for yourself before they sell out! Then we can high five over our savings!! Finding a great deal makes me stupid amounts of happy! 

Little black midi skirt

I’m so glad midi skirts like this exist! This skirt is the perfect length and so flattering!! Plus it literally goes with everything I have a hard time NOT wearing it to church every single week!! I paired it with this gray tee for a effortless, dressy vibe. I kind of love these knock off Valentino heels these were like 1000 dollars off regular price! Honestly I like the knock offs better than the original, the heel is a little taller and more flattering and I don’t have to treat them like they Cinderella’s glass slippers! Okay rant over!

If you are also a fan of this classic skirt silhouette then you babes are in luck! Sequin Sky is giving away one of these amazing midi skirts to one of my lucky followers! All you need to do is follow myself @christineyallen and @sequin_sky  and tag 3 friends! You can also repost my instagram photo for an extra entry! Good luck!!!

My Jossie babe is FOUR!! What?? She wanted a unicorn party so that is what she got!! It turned out so cute she was in heaven! I was able to get all of the darling party supplies from Stripes to Sparkle including the cute Unicorn garland, the unicorn cupcake toppers a the pretty glittery “four” cake topper! The shop is taking a short break for now cause she is swamped with current projects, rightly so cause her stuff is AMAZE!! you can click the above link and get an email alert right as soon as she opens shop back up! I will love this little shop forever for sending them over and making her party absolutely perfect!  So lets all shop small y’all and support small businesses!

Plus all of my siblings (the fab 5) were able to be with Joss for her special day! We haven’t all been together for about 4 1/2 years! So amazing having us all in the same room! I LOVE my family!!

Hey friends! I hope I’m not the only one who is already sweating to death this summer. I’m not complaining though, I’m so not even mad about being a sweaty mess! I just think of sweat as my body crying happy tears! (ew that was gross sorry, but not that sorry)  I only live those 8 other dark and treacherous months out of the year in wait of the mythical ghost that is summer! Summer in Utah is gorgeous! Can I get an amen??

This bright breezy blouse is my new best friend I wish it came in like 14 colors so I would have no need to ever wear anything else! I LOVE the loose fit its so flattering. I love it paired with this fun cross body bag and white jeans and leopard flats! There is no better time than summer to wear every single bright color that you own… all together… at the same time. THAT my friends is color blocking and it rocks!  Outfit details below.

New skin magic


apricots

So last week I posted a photo of my skin and after I took the photo and I thought it look like it had been photoshopped cause my skin has never looked so great! I was finally able to sit down and put this post together! So let me let you the mystery product is PERFECTLY POSH! Have you heard of perfectly Posh products? I hadn’t really so let me just tell you why they are so great!! They are a new company based out of SLC. They use all natural ingredients. No paragons, no sulfates, no petroleum, no gluten fillers! YAY! biggest bonus is that none of their products cost over $25!!

My cute friend Steph is a rep for them and reached out to me and offered to send me samples. So I thought what the heck who would wanna try FREE samples? I got them in the mail and first of all they were all in pretty little pink baggies and the packaging just spoke to me! it’s so cute! Then I opened them and gave them all a great sniff. Cause everyone does that right? I can’t even begin to describe the heaven that is inside every product! I tested out a whole slew of products so I’ll give you the deets of the top  5 products I can’t live with out!

Products I’ll be purchasing

perfectly posh

Apricots Overnight moisturizing face mask I put it on my face after I’ve washed my face and right before bed. You get to go to bed  with your face smelling so good that you might even dream your frolicking through an orchard. Then boom you wake up in the morning with soft and supple skin. Most moisturizers I use make my skin really oily especially when I used them over night. Not the case with this one my friends! I only use it once or twice a week. I will probably end up using it a little more once full blown summer hits and the dry heat gives my skin a beating.

Perftelt posh

Make out Magic sugar lip scrub So ummm.. I like making out and I like magic so this is a no brainer! My favorite thing about this is that you don’t need to wash it off you can slap it on rub your lips together and thats it! Smooth, soft lips! Exfoliating my lips is important cause I like to rock a ton of bold lip colors and if you have chapped lips underneath its soo yuck!

ppposh

 

Snarky Bar Based on the scent alone this is a slam dunk! It’s got shea butter, mandarin, freesia, lily, and sandalwood and tiny beads that help buff off dead skin and leave you so soft and smelling like a dang angel! Seriously its so good! I use it in the shower before I apply my sunless tanner, I feel pretty confident to call it the John Stockton of sunless tan assisting. Helps the tan go on nice and even. To read about my fav sunless tanner click here

BFF

BFF Best Face Forever. So I have a thing for exfoliating apparently haha. This scrub has millions of microbeads gently make your face so awesome and smooth that you wanna use it everyday. I use it every other day cause its so gentle!! Helps my make up go on so smooth and my skin even looks nice when my face is butt naked so SCORE!!!

Night & Day Olive and Lavender moisturizer I use this after I wash my face in the morning and at night when I don’t use the Apricots at night cream it’s a nice light moisturizer my skin doesn’t get oily so its perfect underneath my make up.

Alrighty ladies here are the dirty deeds of how I’m getting my tan on this summer! My cute future sister in law/best friend and personal stylist (I pretty much consult with her over every outfit, I can’t help it she’s my long lost twin!) Mckenzie told me about Tanwise mousse  if you don’t already follow her on instagram you MUST she is darling you will fall in love with her @mckenziebrelyn just do it, DO IT NOW…K?!

This stuff is really affordable and you can buy it at your local Sally’s so its really easy to get your hands on! Let me just tell you that its amazing cause you can actually see where you are applying it so you get nice even coverage gives you a nice believable not orange glow. You can get the build your tan over time lotion but I don’t have time for that nonsense so I love that this will make you tan the second you apply it. Also it washes off in the shower which I am a huge fan of because I found with other self tanners they would get all splotchy and wear off or wash off unevenly. With Tanwise I reapply fresh after every shower and I feel like a million bucks and not so 50 shades of  uneven tan and like a jersey shore cast mate. So please promise me you will go out and buy this and you won’t set foot in a tanning bed and that you will use an appropriate SPF this summer. Obviously skin cancer and sun damage and sun burn are no fun. The sun is great just enjoy it responsibly! Love your pal Christine.  Outfit details below

Bridal Inspiration Shoot

 

 

 

I’m so excited to share these photos!! I have never felt more glam! I have an incredibly old soul so getting to dress up as a retro finger waved bride was heaven!! So I got to be involved of a inspirational bridal shoot this week and I totally freaked out when I saw that Stephanie Brinkerhoff from Hair and make up by Steph  had sent me an email! She is only a hair goddess who teaches and does the most beautiful brides all around the world! I have followed and stalked her religiously for years!! It was basically a dream come true having her do my hair and make up. She used airbrush make up on me and now I have the sudden need to invest in a TEMPTUmachine and airbrush my face for any and all occasions!

Plus it basically rocked getting to be a bride again!! Its been almost six years since I married my cute Todd! I feel like those of us who were married pre pinterest should totally get a do over!! I certainly wish I had this dream team to work with back when I got married! All of the venders are listed below! Enjoy!

Denim Jumpsuit

 

 

 

Where has this denim jumpsuit been my whole life? I am a huge fan of all jumpsuits! I have a few but I feel like they are too dressy for me to wear just on the regular so when I saw cute Camilla from Navy grace wearing this one I HAD to buy it immediately! It has sleeves and its flattering. what more could you possibly need? Also please notice my backpack purse. I have never loved a bag more! I’ve noticed quite a few moms wearing backpacks and its so smart! Its so hard being all lopsided hauling about a toddler on one hip holding hands with my 4 year old and trying to keep my purse straps on my shoulder. Backpacks RULE! I wish I had joined the club sooner!

We snapped these photos at the gardens at Thanksgiving Point. Its so pretty over there!
