My favourite #TBT. Today is my daughter’s first birthday. Today not only marks one whole year that Ruby has been alive, but it marks the day we became a family. The day I became a mama and the day @jaxinhall became a daddy. Today, we celebrate Ruby and what she had done to our world. This day will forever be my favourite day of the year. Happy Birthday, my darling girl. I love you so much! xx

My baby. My beautiful girl. I am so grateful to wake up to your happy squeals every morning and although you may sometimes protest, when you finally fall asleep, I could watch that sweet and peaceful face until the sun came up again. My life has changed so much for the better because of you and I love you more than everything and anything. #rubydawn

There’s nothing I can say about this guy that will even come close to expressing how amazing of a father he is to this little girl and how much I love him. I never thought I would meet someone so excited to be a dad and I am grateful for him every second of every day. Thank you for making all my dreams come true, @jaxinhall! Happy Father’s Day! We love you! xxxxxx

Happy Mother’s Day to this babe! You traveled the world, built your own business and had a family of your own. Most people barely accomplish one of those things. You’re amazing and I’m proud to be your daughter! Love you, Ma! xx

So, spring has been sprung for a little over a month now. The weather here in California (like it has been for most of the winter) is warm and sunny most days and cooler at nights. Here are a few of my personal springtime essentials for this year.

- Hairstyle: Braids! Nothing more romantic and delicate than braids to give you that beautifully unkempt look.

- Striped Madewell kimono dress. So simple and pretty. Perfect for warm days.

- Gap denim jacket. I love that denim jackets can go with pretty much anything (even jeans, if you’re daring enough) and they will keep you warm when the weather cools down at night.

- Moschino daisy loafers. I’m a sucker for loafers, and these daisies scream springtime!

- Karen Walker cat eye sunglasses. So chic! They can dress up even the sloppiest of ensembles.

- Victoria’s Secret body spray: Love Spell. This has always been my signature scent. It’s sexy, simple and not overpowering. Perfect for day or night.

- Revlon ColorBurst balm in Mischevious. I’m not a huge lipstick person because my lips dry out so quickly and I hate reapplying all the time, but this color goes on so smooth like a balm and it survives me constantly rubbing my lips together. Gorgeous color, too!

- Neutrogena Ultra Sheer body mist sunscreen SPF45. My savior. I hate putting on sunblock! This stuff is so easy to apply, doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything and smells great. I could get a sunburn walking to my mailbox, so this is a great item to have on hand.
