Outfit details: top, bra, shorts, shoes, my favorite socks for running 

This weekend was the big race! We do this race every  year as a family and it’s something we always look forward to! This year I somehow completely forgot and didn’t sign up until the day before. I hadn’t been running a ton and definitely was not training with the intention to run this race. Lately, my workout routine has consisted of gym classes and hiking, so I decided to just do the 10k. No reason to go get myself hurt, right!? My hubby on the other hand, was not so smart haha! He had knee surgery about 5 months ago and has not gotten back into running since. He heard that I was running the 10k and then randomly decided to show me up by run the HALF MARATHON, he literally signed up the day before the race! I tried to talk him out of it, and now he is paying the price. Watching him limp around the house is evidence that it probably wasn’t the best idea:)

My time wasn’t the best, but it has definitely got me motivated to start running more consistently. We are going to do a couple more 10k’s and half marathons this summer. I will keep you all updated, because (1) hopefully it is somewhat interesting and (2) that will give me the added pressure to follow through on my goals haha!

I got A LOT of questions about the shoes I like the best for running. I LOVE my Saucony Kinvaras. I just got the 7’s the night before the race and had zero issues, they felt great! I normally wear a size 8, but running shoes are not heels, so I move up to a 9.5 to save my toes and the ability to wear sandals during the summer. Also, I know this sounds crazy, but socks are just as important as your shoes and these are my very favorite pair. I only wear them if I am doing a long run or doing a race, but they really do make a big difference for your feet!


My outfit details: J.Crew dress, Rebecca Minkoff sandals, Celine bag (similar here), Celine sunglasses (similar here)

I wore this outfit to our family dinner the night before the race. I think its almost sold out so hurry and get yours! It’s SO perfect for summer!

I absolutely LOVE everything that we picked and designed together, especially the kitchen cabinets! Designing these was no easy task and she and my cabinet guy did such a great job! I love the detail in the island and floating shelves.We ended up doing oak for the islands so we could get the pretty wood grain we wanted. I am SO happy we used oak! Another favorite part is the fridge, freezer, pantry combo. I love that the pantry is hidden! Below is a full list of everything!

I thought it would be fun to share with you my favorite contour kits and highlights. I recently became obsessed with watching Jaclyn Hill’s makeup tutorials and have found myself buying and trying lots of new things. My favorite cream contour kits are the Laura Mercier palette and the Anastasia cream kit. I love a cream contour. I also LOVE a powder contour after I have used the cream because it helps set the color and makes it so it doesn’t move and it helps the color pop. Instead of using the lighter colors of the kits I use my naked concealer. I put it under my eyes and on all the parts of my face I want lighter and brighter. It is definitely my favorite concealer! It has great coverage and lasts all day. The last thing that I recently found is the Anastasia Glow Kit. IT is seriously my FAVORITE!! Its such a pretty color and gives the perfect glowy look! I hope this is helpful to you! Have a wonderful day!
