I'm not your average mom. I'm a cool mom. Okay honestly I'm pretty average but when the summer rolls around my husband and I become a bit cooler and tow our toddler with us to one of the free concerts at Waterfront Wednesday or to the loud Forecastle festival here in Louisville, Kentucky.
And as a super cool mom there are a few essentials that I need to be festival ready!
The product was gifted, but like always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Who hasn't heard of Rodan and Fields? I mean we all know that one person whose selling it on Facebook and sharing a ton of before and after photos of what seems to be "too good too be true" results. But are they really too good too be true?
Well, this summer I had the chance to try one of their products, the lash boost. Supposedly it grows your eyelashes so much that it looks like false lashes. Before kids the one thing I splurged on each month was having my eyelashes done. Yes. I'd spend A LOT of money to have someone apply my false lashes that would last a few weeks...and I loved them!
Fast forward to mom life and I either don't have the time or desire to spend that much money anymore. So when I saw the lash boost before and after photos I thought "why not give it a go" I mean the results did look incredible!
Now my eyelashes are terrible. They grow out and never curl up. Supposedly that's a genetic thing, b...
3 Black Maternity Must-Have Pieces for Every Wardrobe.
1. A Black Top
There is nothing that I wear more than my flattering, scalloped edge black maternity top from PinkBlush. I love everything from the length, to the scoop neck, to the adorable scallop details around the sleeves and bottom of the shirt. It is the perfect shirt and one that every pregnant mama needs.
The holidays are coming and with it all the fun family and friend parties to attend. And with an ever growing midsection it's hard to find clothes that aren't just bump friendly, but are beautiful and holiday inspired.
My favorite shop for maternity wear at any time of the year, but especially around the holiday season is PinkBlush. They have a wide assortment of beautiful clothes that not only fit your body well but your budget well also.
Here are a few of my holiday picks this season.
After almost two years I finally had the opportunity to treat myself to a salon visit. Living in Louisville there are a ton of options to have your hair colored and to get a facial and I've tried my fair share and honestly have never found one I truly love.
I had been following a local hairdresser named BangsBraidsandbalayage, on social media for almost a year and loved every hair color and cut she posted. Seriously every single cut and color she shared was Pinterest worthy. And after months of liking all of her (Jessica's) photos she graciously invited my to J Michael's Salon to enjoy some pampering.
J Michael's Spa and Salon is nestled in a shopping area in St. Matthew's close to Cafe Lou Lou. The interior is freshly updated, the host are gracious, and there are delicious chocolate treats free for the taking. What more could a lady hope for especially a pregnant one?
When I got to the salon I was greeted by Noelle. Noelle would be giving me a microdermabrasion. The expe...
This post is sponsored by Carter's, however like always, all opinions and thoughts expressed are my own.
Spring has arrived early this year in Kentucky and we are ecstatic about it! Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping and we are busy planning the first family Easter egg hunt. And with all of the family gatherings means lots of family photos with all of the cousins.
So of course I want Christian to look his sharpest this Easter.
Thank goodness for Carter's!From cute button downs to the cutest sandals, Carter's has all of your Easter essentials. My favorite part of Carter's baby boy clothing is that they look like clothes his father would wear and they are completely versatile.
Every boy needs a pair of cute khaki shorts this spring that can be dressed up for Easter Sunday gatherings. We have chosen to pair his shorts with an adorable pink and white plaid button down for Church and dress it down for the the Easter egg hunt fun with a super soft and comfy knit tee or polo.
Yes, the robe. Now it looks fun and edgy on many of the runway models, but I am choosing to opt out of this trend like many of my other 30 something mom friends. Instead of a bathrobe, I am embracing the kimono this spring. The kimono made an appearance last spring and well if it ain't broke don't fix it.
I love this kimono. The pink color is always great for the spring and very on target with the trends. It is also so soft with a beautiful print. Pair it with shorts or jeans and a tank to alternate any boring outfit. It is my favorite statement piece. You can find yours here.
Another hot trend are printed floral dresses. But like Meryl Streep from The Devil Wears Prada once said, "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking." Instead of florals this...
The one day of the year where couples dress up, dine out and shower each other with gifts to show their love and affection for each other. I absolutely love this holiday, but hate getting the same bouquet of flowers.
So, I've done a round up of some of my favorite gifts that every Kentucky girl will love.
1. Kentucky girls T-shirt for the bourbon loving girl made by a Louisville local, Shop Louie Lu.
2. Jewelry is nice, but watches are the best. And the Daniel Wellington Classic Black Sheffield and love charm are the perfect "I Love You" gift.
3. Handmade wooden "All of me Loves All of You" sign made by local Lexington crafter Ellie Kate Design. I want everything in her shop!
4. Delicious port infused chocolate dried strawberries from Chua Chocolatier's. I may have eaten all of them in one sitting!
5. The ultimate Kentucky loving valentine day gift box from The Bluegrass Box with Kentucky charm necklace, chocolates from cellar door, bath goodies and more all from local Ke...
