    I’ve noticed on your blog and instagram your curls are looking more loose and effortless. Have you changed your routine? I’d love to get in on your recent tips… they’re the best!

    What a sweet day! I love your boys’ room! Are the beds from Pottery Barn? Would you mind sharing where they’re from if they’re not? 🙂

    I love their room! I hope you will do a house tour soon!
    What colors are the madam glam nail polishes? How do you like them compared to formula x? Thanks

    • Reply missy February 11, 2015 at 6:16 pm

      I’d say they’re comparable to gelish (gel polish system) – you need an LED or UV lamp to cure it. They sent me: 208, 419, 254, & 990 (254 and 990 are my favorites out of the bunch).

    Adorbs. I see you have the restoration hardware zinc table I’ve been thinking about for our new home, what do you think? To zinc or not to zinc, that is the question!

    Yay! 12 hour post – love them. Stunning pics as always x

  • Reply Lori February 11, 2015 at 6:34 pm

    Beautiful and inspirational, Missy!=) Your boys are precious. Giggle…we got to see their room! ha..I love it. Perfect! Just loving your house and your fun filled days. Two questions…I love the grey paint..I think it is in your room? Do you mind sharing the color? I am looking for a warm grey, this looks pretty.=) Also, how are you liking your kitchen floors- I think they are white washed hickory? Are you happy with them? They don’t seem to have too much shine/gloss, and I like that. But they don’t seem dull, they seem to work well with your beiges, etc. Well, lovely everything!=) Thanks for sharing. Another vote for home tour before you have your next beautiful baby. xo
