This is the outfit I wore out to our date night last Friday. We decided to have a nice but lower key dinner so I didn't want to get too fancy. I thought a cute crop top/full skirt combo would be suitable for our first meal alone together in months. Of course, I had to add my new favorite heels. I hadn't even broke them in yet and my feet were just fine all night. Everything from my outfit to the dinner ended up being perfect. Hopefully I won't have to wait another few months to do it again!

Summer may be on its way out but the heat is here to stay. We have little to no humidity but those rising temperatures definitely mess with my makeup. On especially hot days I like to make sure I use the right products before I start my routine. Here are my picks for a flawless long lasting face!
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer- I put a pea sized portion of this primer on after I moisturize but before I put on my foundation. It's a great way to get that smooth canvas so you can build on a "flawless" face. It's also oil free so it doesn't clog my pores. I've used other primers that actually cause breakouts! I don't use this everyday, but it's great for a long day when you don't have time to be concerned with touch ups.
NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base- This stuff is magic! Unlike the foundation primer, I use this every single day. I love wearing eye shadow but I hate those weird creases you get after a few hours of wear. This shadow base works all day and can stand even the hottest of days.
Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer- This primer is the only way I can properly wear lipstick. It keeps the color nice and vibrant and prevents awful feathering. Ultimate plus: it makes your regular lipstick kiss proof!
What do you use to beat the heat and humidity? Let me know in the comments below!

Sorry about the Bernie explosion on my blog lately. I was saving most of these pictures for later in September to space them out, but I've had zero time to get out and take some new photos. I've had lots of appointments and Bianca's sprouting her seventh tooth so I'm barely clinging to a normal posting schedule. I'm glad I have a nice "nest egg" of photos though. I guess that's the point when you can't get yourself out and take some new ones!

Don't let the title fool you, my Saturday nights aren't much of an event these days. I still wake up at six in the morning and go to bed between ten and eleven at night. Really, the only difference is I see my husband all day and we usually do some sort of outing together. This past weekend was busier than most, almost to the point where it feels like you didn't have time to actually enjoy it. I really can't complain about having a social life as a parent, but I still feel like I could've benefited from a little extra couch time with Kevin :).
