Outfit Post: Style + Comfort Mama

This outfit post is for all the stylish, on the go mamas out there! You can be fashionable and comfortable (and at a great price). Here's how.

1. Throw on a pair of sassy skinny jeans and a comfortable cream colored tank top. (Longer length tanks work best for this look.)


2. Add a fun animal print (or any print of your choosing) crop shrug and some contrasting animal print flats.


3. Complete the look with some fun, chunky jewelry and put on some neutral colored makeup (a bright lip would be a fun way to transition from day to night).



Voila! 

You are a stylish mama who is still comfortable enough to play with the kiddos and run around town. Did I mention that you can create this look without breaking the bank?

Product Review: DNA EGF Renewal

I was recently given the opportunity to review Dr. Ronald L. Moy, M.D.'s DNA EGF Renewal products. The three that I had to try were the DNA Eye Renewal, the DNA Intensive Renewal, and the DNA Night Renewal. I should first mention that I have very dry skin. I had the chance to try these products at a time when the weather was changing and my skin really needed some moisture.

The DNA Eye Renewal didn't seem to make a huge difference for me, although it can be hard to tell when you see yourself every day. I did enjoy the feeling of it around my eyes, but was hoping for a more dramatic result. I do wear glasses, so it could be that I wasn't able to see improvement under my lenses, but I would probably give the Eye Renewal another try.

I tried the DNA Intensive Renewal morning and night, and it did feel like it offered some moisture and comfort to my dry skin. I remember thinking that it felt like it was "tightening" my skin, making it feel more youthful and healthy. I combined it with the other two products and would say it was probably my favorite of the three.

The DNA Night Renewal was difficult to gauge, simply because I was asleep when it worked its magic. However, I did wake up feeling less dry and it was a nice sensation for my skin. I would be curious to see how it worked over a longer period of time.


All in all, I enjoyed the DNA Renewal products and would recommend them for someone who is looking for a new skincare routine. I suggest reviewing the ingredients and the purpose of each product before selecting ones to try.

You can find the entire DNA EGF collection on the DNA EGF Renewal website, which also has YouTube videos of Dr. Moy discussing the science behind the products.

Spring Cleaning 2014

There is a reason it's called "spring cleaning"- because spring is the time to clear out the old and turn over a new leaf. So if you are trying to find a way to change up your look this spring, here are 4 trends to try.

1. Bright Lips  
Color is big this spring- brights, pastels and anything that is unique and fun. So try a bright lip and pucker up! Be sure to choose a shade that works well with your seasonal color palette and don't overdo the brights. Balance out with some neutral makeup and attire. Pops of color with your shoes or other accessories are fine, but let those bright lips get all the attention!

2. Loose Locks
The term "bed head" has a whole new meaning this spring. It is actually something to envy! The tousled, loose, "undone" look for hair is big, even for the wedding scene. That fresh out of bed look can be achieved by minimal grooming and you can accessorize with small hair pieces, to pull back some of your locks if you prefer an updo, or at least prefer some of your hair up. You can also choose fun hair accessories like feathers that are intertwined in the hair to add some funkiness or color.

3. Body Jewelry 
Jewelry is fun. That is probably why there are so many ways to wear it, and this spring you can take it one step further by donning some body jewelry. You can find pieces for your arms, legs, wrists or even your head. Whatever your body part of choice, sport something different with your jewelry!

4. Wooden Jewelry 
Another unique trend for spring is wooden jewelry. I love the wooden jewelry look and the nice thing about this trend is that you can even go the DIY route and make your own unique pieces! Visit any craft store to find the supplies you need. Not the DIY type? Check out the items below to add to your jewelry collection.
