Jumpsuit Summer.

I remember a couple of summers ago I was pregnant with Emery and there were so many cute jumpsuits out. Not a lot of them would fit with my little 😉 belly. Last summer postpartum me wasn't totally into it but this summer I am all over it. Enter this Brisa Jumpsuit from Anthropologie, the pattern is so fun & the black is slimming. I love the billowy legs, keeps things cool and kinda makes me feel like a Genie. Yes, I just might call this my Genie romper. Have you tried out any rompers lately?

Life Lately

Pink flamingo ottoman & agenda

It seems like this time of the year is busy, go go go! Emery and I always seem to be heading out the door during the week. We can't wait for the end of the month when Dada will be done work for the summer! 

If you follow along on Snapchat (kastlescamponi) you will see I have been filling my house with Peonies from the yard. I usually like to put out a tray on my Gold Flamingo ottoman from Obviously Chic filled with favourite mags, flowers & trinkets. I picked up the latest Agenda for next year, because if you are fan like me these bad boys sell out super fast!

Spring Sephora products

Since Em and I have been spending a lot more time outside my hair has been a little on the crispy side. I picked up a little treat for my hair from Sephora the other day for a extra little conditioning. I thought I would give Bumble and Bumble's Invisible Oil Conditioner a try. I also picked up a few other goodies included Dr.Jart+ Black Charcoal Mask (that everyone seems to be raving about) & Josie Maran's Whipped Argan Oil

Slip on sandals for summer

One trend I keep seeing pop up is slip on sandals & little spaghetti strap dresses. I can get behind the sandals but I am having a hard time committing to any sort of spaghetti strap situation. Mostly because I'm not into wearing a strapless bra, haha! I thought these tan sandals from Joe Fresh would be a nice break from my Birkenstocks (my Birkenstock tan is outta control!).

Julep Maven Beauty Subscription

I have a monthly subscription to Julep, which means each month I get a curated box of their latest beauty products. They are mostly nail polish based but lately they have been stepping it up with some fun beauty products. The last couple of months I have been opting out mostly because we are trying to save moola but I forgot this month. It was a pleasant surprise to see it in my mailbox, plus they always sneak a little candy into each box :).

Scallop Bikini

I've really been struggling with that last 5-10 pounds of baby weight (more on that later 😜), and this cute scalloped bikini from Old Navy has been my motivation. June has been my lets kick some butt month in the fitness & health department. 

Baby Girl Nursery Decor

Poor Emery, her little room is still in progress, although let's be honest she doesn't really notice. Uashmama sent over this adorable Rose Quartz Paper Bag (yes it's made out of paper!) and I love sticking all her cute girlie things in it. It might have to make an appearance in the living room with some peonies in it 😉.

Happy Friday everyone!

Lise Watier Escale Summer 2016 Collection

Lise Watier Summer Collection

Over the years, I have become a tad boring when it comes to my eye make-up. I tend to stick to a lighter beige eyeshadow as a base, followed with a darker brown in the creases. I wasn't always like this, I swear. I use to love being adventures and playing around with fun colors. So when the new Lise Watier Escale 2016 Summer Collection fell into my lap, I was all game to try out some fun new colors. 

Lise Watier Summer Collection

First things first, the packaging is so pretty! Who wouldn't want to carry these darling little floral compacts around?

The Escale Palette for eyes and cheeks features the softest & prettiest of colors, just perfect for summer! Personally, I love combining the purple shades together along with the pink Ombre Fraiche Liquid eyeshadow for a soft, dewy look.

Lise Watier Summer Collection

Hands down my favourite piece from the collection is the Escale Bronzing powder. It has just the right mixture of pinks & browns for that great summer glow. If I don't have time to do my whole face, I try to at least brush a little of this on. 

Have you tried the new collection? Or what other beauty lines are you loving for summer?

KicKee Pants

Cute baby pjs

When I was pregnant with Emery, I would hear Mom's talking about these KicKee Pants pjs and how amazing they were. I kinda kept it in the back of my mind because I wasn't buying too many things for Emery before she got here because we didn't know what we were having. A few months after having Emery, my Mom and I were at a local baby boutique and saw these infamous KicKee Pants pjs. They felt like butter. I couldn't believe how incredibly soft they were and the adorable prints they came in. I also loved how the arm sleeves could be pulled over to cover your babes hands. So much more convenient then baby mitts. We grabbed a few pairs to test out. Fast forward to today, and we are just as in love with the brand.

KicKee Pants always has the cutest and unique prints. These ones that Emery is wearing are the Natural Sun & Moon set. What I love about this print is that they are gender neutral. When you are spending a little bit more money on baby or toddler clothes, I really appreciate gender neutral prints. This way if you are going to have to spend a little bit more money, you can reuse them whether you have a girl or boy.

I just recently discovered that KicKee Pants also carries other clothes besides pjs. A little mini tank topsand a bubble skirt? So freaking cute! I mean look at her little belly in it. I love how KicKee Pants always pays attention to little details such as ruffles and trim. I have my eye on their new Wing Romper in Swam Princess. That print and little ruffles are just perfect!

Have you tried out KicKee Pants for your little babes? Let me know! They are just heavenly. They even have some adult pjs, which I am thinking I might just need a pair for myself. Perhaps matching ones with E, because that's just how I roll.

Happy almost friday lovelies!

My Top 3 Products for Curly Hair

The Best Hair Products for Curly Hair

You guys probably don't know this but I have naturally curly hair. Usually when I'm taking blog photos, I style my hair with a hair straightener or curling iron. The majority of the week, I sport my natural curls. I've rounded up my top 3 products that I find work best for curly hair.

Top 3 Products for Curly Hair

The Best Hair Creme for Curly Hair

Moroccan Oil Curl Defining Cream

After I wash my hair, I towel dry my hair a little bit and then add about a quarter size amount of this to my hair. You might want to use a little less depending on your hair. I have lots of thick curly hair so I use a little bit more. I usually squeeze it into my hair, mostly on the ends. Depending on the day and the amount of time I have, I will either let it air dry or blow dry it using a diffuser. I find this cream really helps maximize my curls, and it doesn't hurt that it smells delicious too.

The best way to tame curly hair

Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil

This is a fairly new to me product, but I'm obsessed. Once my hair has dried, I squirt a little of this into my hands and distribute throughout my hair. It does a great job of taming any frizzy pieces, plus it also nourishes hair and protects it against UV damage. Another thing I really appreciate about this oil, is that is not super heavy and sticky.

How to get the most out of your curls

Bumble and Bumble BB Curl Conscious Reactivating Mist

This product is an oldie but a goodie. You really can't go wrong with any Bumble and Bumble products. This product is such a saviour! I find mid afternoon, early evening my curls start to fall flat. I just spritz this bad boy on, give my curls a few squeezes and they are back to life! This Reactivating mist is especially awesome for second day curls, after you have slept on them and they super wonky looking. This product is a tad on the pricier side, but it lasts a super long time.

Alright my curly haired friends, what products do you swear by? Let me know below. Happy tuesday!
