It is starting to warm up here again so I am able to start breaking out some of my spring dresses! I ordered this dusty rose spring maxi dress several weeks ago from Rachel Parcell’s RP Everyday Shop. It is sold out, but keep an eye on it if you are interested in ordering one for yourself. They often restock popular items! She also launched so many beautiful pieces today in her Rachel Parcell Collection line. There are some great options to wear for Easter and all throughout Spring season. If you need a dress for a shower or even a wedding, head over there and check out all of the gorgeous dresses and skirts. This is one of my favorites!
Do you know what you are wearing for Easter yet? There are so many great things in the retail world right now that it is so hard to decide!
Today I am wearing this fun satin dress that I got last week from Scout & Molly’s of Sarasota. The fabric is a dream and the color is a nice bold pop of color for Spring! I originally planned on wearing it with wedges or sandals and maybe a sun hat, but we got a little cold front this week, so I was able to pull out my brown leather jacket that I hardly ever get to wear. It is several years old, but I did see a similar perforated jacket at Scout & Molly’s when I was there. Scroll down to the bottom to get all of my outfit details.
I have received some amazing beauty PR packages with some amazing beauty products over the past few months. I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you!
So, this is kind of a funny story. I was on the hunt for a drug store brand foundation for every day wear. I have a few name brand foundations that I love, but I go through them pretty quickly, which really adds up. I tried so many drug store brands but none of them were right for me. They were either too watery, too thick or I couldn’t get the right color. I spent hours on the internet looking at reviews to get the right one. I eventually gave up. Shortly after that, Influenster sent me a package with Maybelline’s Master Prime primer and Fit Me Dewy foundation! The timing was perfect! Just when I thought I wasn’t going to find a less expensive foundation, this showed up in my mailbox. I cannot say enough good things about these two products! The primer is a great base and the foundation is everything I was looking for. Great coverage, long lasting and the color is perfect for my skin tone. I really like the dewy and I might even try the matte version next time.
I had never heard of either of these products until I received them. I started using the Rodial Banana Lowlighter right away. It is great to use as concealer for dark circles under the eyes. I like that it doesn’t have a shimmer effect like most highlighters. The Nip + Fab Radiance Shot can be added to your nightly moisturizer. I have only used it twice because I rarely remember to use moisturizer but so far I like it. I’ll let you know if I see any major results with it. 🙂
I received these exfoliating pads a few months ago and have been using them about three nights a week. They are nice for removing my makeup before I get in the shower. I like only having to use one product to remove my makeup and exfoliate. For a full time working mom, this is a nice time saver. They do a great job of brightening and clarifying my skin. They feel SO refreshing. Like a glass of water for my face! Anthony even uses them a couple of times a week. They were even the winner of Harper’s Bazaar’s “Best At-Home Glycolic Treatment” & SELF Magazine’s “Best Exfoliant” awards. I highly recommend these if you are looking for a gentle exfoliator and aren’t big on adding a ton of different products to your nightly regimen!
In case you missed it, I did a post on these products a few months ago. You can read it here. I have kept up with my Smile Brilliant whitening trays. If you have sensitive teeth, this is the perfect kit for you! There is a desensitizing gel that really helps. I recommend this to all my coffee and red wine drinkers out there!
I have done several posts on Aveda in the past. I love the products! I even go to an Aveda salon. You can read that post here. Aveda sends me a lot of different things, but when they sent me this wooden box full of goodies, I was ecstatic! I lost a lot of hair after I had Andi. This was so discouraging since I have had thick hair all my life. The Invati system has helped tremendously. My hair has finally grown back in and feels nice and full! I can’t believe what a difference this has made.
Do you use any of the products I reviewed? What are some of your favorites?
Thanks for stopping by!
*all of the products shown above were gifted to me*
I ordered this ruffle denim jacket a few weeks ago from Rachel Parcell. I LOVE her RP Everyday Shop! There are so may great casual pieces to choose from and the prices are very reasonable. She just released a ton of new items today. Check them out and let me know what your favorites are? I ordered a couple of things, including this maxi dress.
The majority of my outfit is made up of older pieces that I have had. My tank, bag and shoes are all still available. My skirt and belt are not but I have listed some almost identical options for you below.
Hi!! I have been wanting to order this cardigan for some time now… I had the hardest time deciding on what color to get. I originally wanted the ivory but then I fell in love with the pink. They are hand knit and come in several different colors. They even make kids sizes to match! Maybe Andi needs one??!
I hope you are enjoying your week so far. We took Andi to Epcot on Monday since she didn’t have school. It was the last day of their art festival so we wanted to get up there one last time. I am obsessed with the deconstructed BLT! I have gotten it every time we have been the past few months. Andi’s favorite is the fried rice in China. We tell her that Mulan makes it and she eats everything on her plate. Whatever works, right??
I bought this bell sleeved sweater last year but they are still available in select colors and sizes, and its on sale! I have linked more options below. My pink ruffle skirt is another favorite from the Rachel Parcell Collection. I am so excited that I finally got to meet her last week! She is so talented and inspiring. Check out my Instagram to see our photo together.
I have to say that it does NOT feel like February here in Florida… I know that we do not get winters like my northern friends but there is usually some sort of cold front or chill in the air around this time. Andi and I went to the Greek festival at our church this weekend and we are usually freezing. This year we were dripping in sweat. I think I enjoy it cold much better, but we still had a nice time.
I shared this look last week on Instagram and a few people asked about my leopard pants. They are extremely soft with a drawstring elastic waistband and POCKETS! They are so comfortable I feel like I am wearing pajamas. You can get these and my top from Scout & Molly’s of Sarasota!
We are between cold fronts here, so I figured I would wear this fun Spring polka dot dress that I recently picked up at Scout & Molly’s in Sarasota! It is the perfect packable dress as it does not wrinkle! It has a flirty ruffle detail that is just perfect for Spring!
If you are in the Sarasota area, stop by Scout & Molly’s this Thursday, February 8th from 5-7 for their Galentine’s Extravaganza! Enjoy 10% off everything that is pink or red and enter to win a Gigi New York crossbody bag. I will be there along with Christin Long from iViva Vitale and Cinthya of Cinthya’s skin & body care. Bring your girlfriends and come on down!
I took last week off for a little family time. My birthday was on the 26th so we decided to take Andi to Disney for a couple of days. She loved it, as usual! We stayed in what she called “the princess bedroom”. There were framed photos of different princesses on the wall, Aladdin’s magic carpet on the floor and the headboards even did a little firework light show with the push of a button. I will do a post with some of the highlights from our trip later this week.
I wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago during our last cold front. I am going to have to get my spring pink trench coat back out on Wednesday because we have another front coming through. I love, love this color pink, especially now that we are getting so close to Spring! What is your favorite Spring color?
Sorry I haven’t written anything in a while. To be honest, I have been enjoying my new Hulu and Netflix memberships! I know, it is 2018. Where have we been? I got Hulu for Will & Grace, and Netflix for The Office… Both of which are back on regular cable, but I am happy we signed up. Andi has really been enjoying the movie options. Especially Moana! We watch it everyday, twice a day. No joke. Go ahead and have a drink for me. 😉
I got this sweater last year in black and loved it so much. I wanted to order the white but it sold out quickly. I was thrilled to see that they brought it back again this year so I snagged one right away! I love Club Monaco’s sweaters. They are some of the softest ones that I own and the quality is amazing.
Last week, I went downtown with my girl to take some photos. She loves getting dressed up for pictures now. Her dress is from Gymboree last year. I am excited that it finally fits her, just in time for Valentine’s Day! We are taking my girl to Disney this week so stay tuned for lots of Instagram stories and photos from our trip. Any guesses on which resort we will be staying at this time? Here is a hint: It is a Disney Resort.
