Thoughts for Thursday


I'm slowly, but surely, making my way back into the blogging world...as in, writing on topics other than motherhood and the cutest little baby around.  ;)  Of course, I will still talk on these topics {naturally!} but it's high time we explore other topics, yes?

Here's what I'm digging right now:


Have you heard of BB Cream?  I saw a segment on the Today Show several weeks ago and was intrigued.  This is a "new" kind of makeup, different from foundation or tinted moisturizer.  It started in Asia and has recently taken off in the states due to it's multiple purposes, like SPF, moisturizing, tinting, blemish contro, etc.  I wanted to try a cheap version, like this one by Maybelline, to see if it was worth all the fuss, and guess what?  I really think it is!  Especially for a mom on the go, like me, it's awesome and easy!  I definitely plan to invest in the Bobbi Brown version stat! 


Remember the rage over the coveted Zara pump {no longer in stock}?  Well, Aldo just came out with a similar looking heel and the cost is pretty great too!  I think they're the "it" heel for the fall.


Ummmm, does anyone else have an unhealthy obsession with Downton Abbey?  I feel like I've been hiding under a rock...I la-la-LOVE this show and can't get enough!!!  I burned my way through two seasons in a week.  And I'm already dying for season three to get here {I'll have to wait until January...wah wahhh}.


I mean...hellooooo Mr. Pamuk!  ;)


I feel like I missed the whole colored jean boat with being pregnant these last 9+ months.  So I am very happy that the trend seems to continue through the fall.  I'm in love with this emerald green pair and they're on sale right now on Piperlime.  Soooo tempting!


My latest Ebay purchase is this gorgeous mint necklace for just $6.64 {You may find it ever cheaper, if you search around}.  It's pretty perfect if you ask me.

Oh and if you want to keep up with me on a more regular basis, I'm on Instagram!  Find me @schuelove

That's all for now!  Check back in tomorrow for Ethan's newborn pictures!

  2. I must be a little behind because I've been hearing people talk and blog about BB cream but had no idea what it really was until a day or two ago. Sounds like I might need to try it out!

    Those Aldo pumps are gorgeous and not too high which is good! I also loooove colored denim. I hope the trend never goes out of style! [Although, sadly, I'm sure it will.] And that necklace... miiight just have to get it :)

  13. I love the Ebay necklace! I always forget that Ebay is a great place to search around for inexpensive jewelry.

    I own the Zara heels and I must say that the Aldo version is pretty dead on!

  14. I also loved the colored jean trend (got in it shortly before I was pregnant).

    Maybe I can find some maternity colored jeans!

  15. I also love the bb cream so nice not having to use multiple products when you don't have much time with a baby and I feel the same way about colored jeans...I finally caved and bought a pair a size up so I could get in on the trend!Check out target I got a lime green pair for %50off so I won't feel bad when I get to skinny for them ;) (I'm hoping it happens soon)

  19. OMG... I just purchased that same BB cream last night and used it today... Absolutely love it!!! So far it seems to really make my skin feel so much better than the average heavy foundation!! So excited to purchase another brand that may be even better!!!

  20. I got a sample of the Bobbi Brown bb cream and I love it! Definitely a step up from my normal Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, of which I've been a loyal fan for years.

    And I'm so glad the colored jean trend is still in! I have a great pair of tangerine ones that I'm glad I'll get to wear again once this baby comes ;)

  21. I loved season 1 of Downton, but I haven't seen season 2 yet... I need to get on that!

  22. That is too funny... I feel like I've missed the colored jeans fad too! Actually called David the other day and said "Yes! They're still in! I saw a pair of marigold skinny jeans at TJ Maxx!" HA! We will be able to ROCK the non-preggo look this fall, wahoo!

  23. Just tried out BB cream as well and I definitely think I like it. I feel like it cuts time on the makeup routine and looks good too!

  26. I actually received a sample of Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25+ in my Sept. Birch Box and love it! I plan on ordering some and a little goes a long way.
