Style Collective Summer Pool Party {Orlando Style}

Swimsuit / Old Lilly Pulitzer Sarong / Shoes / Earrings / Hat (DIY but Similar)

I am SO excited to share with you photos from one of my favorite blogger events ever!

A few months ago I joined Style Collective and it has been the best decision, not only for my blog, but for me! I have met the most amazing group of women who inspire me and support me with all of my goals.  They are great friends and I am so excited I get to share this blogging journey with them!

Last weekend, Nikki and Kimberly Loveless hosted the most fun and colorful pool party for our Orlando chapter of Style Collective.  The event was full of flamingos, pineapples and all things pink and summery.  It was so much fun and I wish we could party like that every weekend!

We filled our bellies with yummy treats and spent all afternoon sipping glasses of the delicious Day Owl Rose. We played games like flamingo ring toss and pineapple bowling, tried our hand at hitting a pineapple pinata filled with beauty products and floated around on the cutest pool floats around.

If you are looking to join a group of amazing bloggers, check out Style Collective to see if it would be a good fit for you and your blogging journey!

Thanks so much friends and see you next time! xoxo

A Switch to Safer Skincare

Hello friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend! My weekend was so busy and it felt like it completely flew by.  Last week was so fun and busy too but the absolute highlight was a Beautycounter event I hosted for my best friend here in my home.  It ended up being such a fun night full of wine, snacks and so much info about the beauty and skincare products that myself and so many of my friends were using.

After hosting the event and learning more about all of the toxic and harmful ingredients in the products I was using everyday, I decided to become an ambassador and consultant for the company as well and I am SO excited.  If you are not familiar with Beautycounter, it is a beauty and skincare line that is committed to getting safer and healthier products into everyone’s hands.  Did you know that over the past two decades, the European Union has banned more than 1,300 chemicals in the product formulas of personal care products and restricted the levels of over 250 more in such products. The United States has only partially banned 30 to date.

Learning that the United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938 and that companies are allowed to use harmful ingredients and make their own judgments about safety was terrifying.  In some cases, we are using products daily on ourselves and our children filled with chemicals that could be harmful and have long-term health effects.

If you would like to learn more about Beautycounter, their mission, and how to provide safer and healthier products to you and your family, let me know! I know that I am completely shocked with all of the information I learned and I want every woman and mom to learn as much as they can about the products they are using!

Have a great week and see you next time! xoxo

Nordstrom Sale {First Glance Favorites}

Ahhh! It’s here! My absolute favorite sale of the year! I need to pour a cup of hot tea, make some avocado toast and spend hours this morning looking at the sale.  But that is not going to happen! I have kiddos to take care of! Here are some of my first glace favorites! What are you shopping for during this sale??

 

Hello Summer!

Romper / Shoes / Earrings / Clutch (Old but Similar) / Sunglasses / Bracelets

Happy summer!! But even better, Happy National Wear Your Lilly Day!! I am sure it is very obvious that I love Lilly Pulitzer and nothing goes together better than summer and the bright colors of Lilly.  I absolutely love the colors in this romper – especially the orange, which I don’t have a lot of in my closet.  Also, my favorite thing about this romper is the forgiving top.  It flows so nicely and will be especially awesome after indulging in too much of my favorite summer treat – ice cream!

So cheers to summer! I would love to see if you are rocking your favorite Lilly today!

Thanks so much and see you next time! xoxo

Room Tour {Nursery}

My little man is 2 years old now (oh my gosh, time flies!) and we are about to move him into a big boy bed.  I am seriously so worried because he is such a great sleeper now and I don’t want to go and mess it all up with all that freedom! If any of you have any tips or tricks for keeping your toddler in bed, please let me know!  Before changing up his room and getting rid of his crib, I really wanted to take some photos so I thought I would share them with ya’ll!

I knew immediately that I wanted to stick with a nautical/coastal theme with his room and I am really happy with how it turned out.  There are still some details that I would like to change, but I think it has been perfect for him these last 2 years!

Most of the items in his room are RH Baby & Child or Homegoods, but his crib was actually given to us by one of my best friends.  Her daughter, and my goddaughter, slept in this crib so it is so special!

Thanks so much and see you next time! xoxo
