My Current Favorite Beauty Products

My daily beauty routine tends to change about once or twice a year and usually consists of a go-to set of rotating products. Whether they change by the season, or whenever I want to try something new, I often find faves that I use regularly. Right now, there are several that I'm totally loving and that I want to share with you! These products are ones that I use every day. And while I'm by no means a skin care or beauty expert, I'm sharing these because they've been working well and are not outrageously overpriced. I wouldn't call any of them miracle products, but they've stayed part of my routine because they haven't let me down! Here's the breakdown, along with why I like each product. Acure Mega Moisture Argan Oil Pumpkin Shampoo - This brand is awesome because it only uses plant-based ingredients. In addition to keeping my hair healthy, I feel better knowing that I'm keeping our planet healthier too. I also love the way this shampo

Versatile, Colorful, Fun Earrings!

I spent the week in San Diego and thought it was the perfect time to break out a new pair of colorful earrings. It was actually a bit gloomy outside but the earrings were a welcome pop of color set against the dreary sky. I got the Summer and Tropical Nights Glamour Statement Earrings from the online shop N Side A Diva's Closet. You'll find a large variety of fun, colorful jewelry there. I decided to pair mine with a simple tank top that brought out the red in the danglers. You can see that there are several colors mixed in, making these incredibly versatile! The gold tone also complements my warm coloring well. I found a pretty background full of greenery and florals to use as my backdrop, which blended nicely with all the colors from the earrings. Even the birds in the yard loved my look! (Who cares if they aren't real?) Snag your own pair of multi-colored earrings from N Side A Diva's Closet !

The Most Comfortable Floral Jumpsuit You'll Ever Wear!

Have you jumped on the jumpsuit bandwagon yet? If not, I highly suggest you do. Jumpsuits are becoming increasingly popular and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Different styles continue to emerge, and I found one recently that is soooo comfortable (and stylish). I mean it. I felt like I was wearing pajamas in this jumpsuit! I'm talking about the Standing Tall Floral Spaghetti Strap Jumpsuit from Filly Flair. It is so soft and cozy with a pretty floral design. The verstatile piece can be worn for a casual lunch, while running errands, even to Sunday church with the right coordinating pieces. As a mom, comfort is a top priority for me. And who doesn't love a piece they can practically sleep in, it's so comfortable? I want to wear this jumpsuit every day! The only (minor) thing about the jumpsuit that I didn't like was that it's too long on me, but that's something that can easily be fixed. Many dry cleaners and tailors can hem

Get in Style While Giving Back With Pura Vida Bracelets

I'm all about jewelry and accessories that are fashionable, functional and versatile. Add a major does of color and I am officially sold. Enter: Pura Vida Bracelets . Not only does the brand sell jewelry and accessories that are fun and colorful, it also gives a percentage of sales to various charities. “Pura Vida” means “pure life” in Spanish; a Costa Rican philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures. Pura Vida Bracelets was founded by two friends who met two bracelet artisans in Costa Rica during a college graduation trip. After witnessing the simple life and hard work of the two artisans, the two friends found that their handmade bracelets were a popular symbol of the laid-back lifestyle. Thus, Pura Vida Bracelets was born as a way to inspire simple living while providing meaningful work to artisans around the world. When you purchase a bracelet from the Pura Vida Charity collection , you make a difference. There are many different causes y

Have a Healthier Period Experience & Give Back to Girls in Need With Cora

I've been trying to live healthier and in a way that is more eco-conscious and promotes green living. So when I recently discovered Cora pads and tampons, I decided to switch to the brand for my feminine hygiene needs. So far, I've been very happy! Not only are the products better for my body and the planet (they are made using ethically sourced organic cotton), the company is committed to giving back to girls and women on a global scale. With nearly 25 million women in the U.S. living below the poverty line, and young girls in third world countries not having access to feminine care products, Cora has partnered with non-profits across the country to provide more than 100,000 products to women in need in the U.S. and gives a percentage of profits to support young girls in Kenya through the ZanaAfrica Foundation. For every month's supply purchased from Target , Cora gives a month's supply of sustainable pads to a girl in need in India. Cora is also a huge propone

Living in LIVELY + $10 Off Promo Code

If you haven't heard, LIVELY is the newest place online to find comfortable, stylish bras and underwear at reasonable prices. The brand sells bras and bralettes that are perfect for every day -like the t-shirt bra- as well as a few that are lovely for special occasions. And what's really awesome is that the sizes range from XS-L for some styles and all the way up to 38DDD in specialty styles. There is a fit guide on the website to help you figure out which size works best for your measurements. I've been wanting to try LIVELY for awhile now, and I finally decided to start with one of their simplest, most practical designs. I went with The Triangle Bralette in Heather Gray and so far, so good! Since I generally wear a 34A/34B, I ordered a size small. And even though this bra isn't meant to give your cleavage a boost, mine looked much bigger! (No, I'm not complaining.) And it is seriously sooo comfortable! My one and only complaint is that this bra is not

I've Got the Gingham Blues

Here in the south, gingham is a print most fashionistas have in their closet. And after snagging this adorable Stay Sweet Gingham Top from Bella Ella Boutique, I'm definitely going to be adding more of the print to my wardrobe! I love the ruffled style of this top and the way it gently floats away from my body. It's such a versatile piece that can be worn many different ways. This top can be paired with jeans, a skirt, capri pants or shorts. It works for lunch dates with the ladies or a casual night out with your fella. It's so feminine and yet so fun too! Here's a close up of the color and details. (Don't you just love the ruffles?) There's nothing like lounging in the southern summer sun. I already had a pair of royal blue suede pumps to wear with the top- and they matched perfectly . Score!
