I Got It From My Mama

This post is sponsored by Kmart.

I talk to my mom on the phone almost every day. I can honestly say, each conversation takes on a life of it’s own. We don’t always agree on things and we will sometimes butt heads. I love her beyond words, but man we are so much alike it’s scary. It seems like every time I open my mouth, I say something and I sound just like her. In fact, I think I might actually be turning into her.  Read more

Weekend Wear

If you haven’t noticed, most of my outfits consist of blue denim jeans. What can I say? It’s an obsession. I love wearing them more than anything. Maybe I should do one of those dress challenges? Anyways, this past weekend I changed it up a little bit and threw on a pair of white denim. You know, cause it’s spring. Baby steps people. I also had a chance to wear this Rachel Pally top I picked up at her recent warehouse sale. Read more

Beauty Buzz / Yardley London Nourishing Elements Artisan Soap

It’s beauty confession time. For the past few years, I’ve used nothing but liquid body washes when it comes to bathing. I haven’t used bar soap in a really long time. OK, not the craziest confession, but it sounds weird admitting that. All we used growing up was bar soap. In fact, I don’t even know why I stopped using it in the first place. Well, looks like it may be back in my bathing routine since Yardley London Nourishing Elements Artisan Soap sent me a few bars to try out. Read more

When was the last time you tried to style a t-shirt? And I’m not talking about just any old tee. I’m talking about a t-shirt with a very special message. One that encourages us to “Make An Impact” in the lives of our little ones. As most of you know, I’m not a mama. But, I am a proud aunt and godmother. And I care about my babies with all of my corazon and most importantly—their health. That’s why I was super proud to rock this new March of Dimes/Kmart t-shirt exclusively designed by celebrity fitness star Jillian Michaels! You’ll even have a chance to win your own shirt below.

Just Be Yourself

We live in a world where people want to be anyone but themselves. Constantly putting themselves down, copying others, and not being true to who they really are. It makes me sad when I see a woman desperately trying to change who she is in order to fit into what society thinks is “beautiful.” I get it. It’s hard. We want to be accepted. And it doesn’t help that we are bombarded with messages that tell us what we should look like and how we should dress. Believe me, I work really hard to not fall into the trap myself. But, I’m only human. Sometimes, I need to remind myself to just be me. Read more

5 Beauty Must-Haves for Allergy Sufferers

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of ZYRTEC®.
Let’s be honest, allergies suck. If you suffer from them, then you know what I’m talking about. I developed mine later in life. I often deal with sinus pain, itchy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing (to name a few symptoms). Whenever my allergies hit, I don’t even want to get ready in the morning. Because, I know I’ll be dealing with what they call ALLERGY FACE®—puffy eyes, redness, watery eyes, and even dark circles. But, these are problems of the past. Because, I keep five of my beauty must-haves ready to go! Read more

Style Trend/ Chambray

As spring and summer rolls around, it’s all about light weight materials. And as much as I love denim, sometimes it can be a little too heavy for the warmer weather. That’s why the chambray trend is always an awesome alternative. And like any basic, it’s a blank slate. It’s really easy to accessorize and style. Read more
