  I don’t know about where you live, but we’ve had some chilly days here in the Carolina’s lately. While some afternoons it still gets up into the 60’s, the mornings when I head out to drop the kids off at school – my toes are COLD! Searching for a practical and fashionable boot has been something I haven’t succeeded much yet in previous years. I bought a few pair last year at Old Navy, but they barely lasted me through the season and I just haven’t found an affordable pair that gave me everything...

With monthly subscription boxes being all the rage these days, I decided to do a little round up for you monthly. I know I’ve subscribed to some, where I wished I didn’t waste my money while others I have fallen in love with, so why not share my thoughts!? Right now, my absolute favorite is IPSY – I am officially an IPSY subscriber FOR LIFE! For just $10, you get this cute little makeup bag filled with goodies. You can’t go wrong! Sometimes their sample sizes, sometimes full size, and sometimes something I wouldn’t...

I remember the days when I would bask in the sun for hours upon hours doing nothing but slathering myself with tanning oil every hour. I felt lucky to have skin that tanned so easily and never burned and never thought twice about the damage I was doing to my skin and potentially my health. Fast forward ten years later and now I have two small kids and more of a brain to know that was dumb. Cancer runs in my family. Granted, no one has had skin cancer (knock on wood,) but cancer nonetheless; and the one thing I’ve learned, it’s...

Summer is here in full swing and my closet is in desperate need of a makeover! I’ve been trying really hard to add pieces that I can wear in several scenarios and that can be accessorized with fun accessories to switch up my style whenever I want to. I also am obsessed with color! I love bright colors for summer and am always a huge fan of awesome patterns, and those two combos are not easy to come by and still be appropriate and stylish for a mom. I can find my daughter 100 outfits under the sun all fun, unique, and stylish, but...

I couldn’t be happier that it’s pool season and time to spend our days wasting away in the sunshine! This mom spends most mornings poolside with the kiddos and jumping in and out of the water means needing a good, secure bathing suit to handle the tugging and splashing between two kids.   I absolutely despise swimsuit shopping! Trying them on in the store is never fun and it’s pretty much inevitable that whatever I choose and think is cute, will look completely horrid on me! Are you with me!?! The thought of ordering...

Danskin Memorial Weekend 40& off sale!!! ...

The summer months are upon us and down here in the south, the warm weather is in full swing! This means taking advantage of the sunshine and tossing those winter kicks and jeans for bright, beautiful dresses and tops. Summer is my favorite season. I would much rather be by the pool or in a cute sun dress than anything else and I’ve been going through my closet and working on filling up my shelves with new summer gear. The one thing I hate though is finding a dress that I love and discovering it doesn’t have that perfect fit....

Now that I have a daughter, soiling ourselves with an afternoon of pampering is so fun for both of us! She is such a girly girl and loves to put lotion on and do her nails. While I love some pampering too, budget-wise, we try to do “in home” spa’s a lot more frequently than going out. It’s also important for me to use safe products for both my skin and my daughter’s, so Paraben Free is always a necessity for beauty products in our house.     This It’s a Small World gift set from Basq skincare...

Sticking to a pretty strict workout routine seven days a week has been both grueling and rewarding. I’m so happy with the results I’ve been getting, but my workout wardrobe has needed a serious makeover. I have been struggling to find the perfect yoga pant for hot yoga too, so I was pretty anxious to give Danskin’s Sleep Fit Yoga Pant a try. They’re simple and comfortable.   Since I’ve been using the FlipBelt when I workout to secure my phone, I love that these yoga pants don’t have that fold...
