Aurorae: Microfiber Sport & Swim Towel

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

I recently had the opportunity to review the Aurorae Microfiber Sport & Swim Towel. This is such a great towel! It is absolutely perfect for pool and beach use. Not only is it huge (32"x68"), but it comes in eight fun colors and is priced right for what you get. The microfiber is nice and thick, so you feel like you're resting on a full body pillow instead of a paper-thin towel. In addition to offering superior comfort, the microfiber is also very absorbent, so whether you get a little sweaty while you're laying out in the sun or you come in from the ocean or pool dripping wet, the towel will absorb the excess liquid and dry off quickly.

I highly recommend this towel. Check out what else Aurorae has HERE

Nursery Tale

Monday, August 31, 2015

About two weeks ago Alex contacted me from Wayfair to see if I would be interested in sharing my Nursery Tale for an upcoming campaign. Things are a little hectic right now for our family, but I just couldn't resist!
Lets talk a little tour of Olivia's room! 
The room that we chose for the nursery used to be my Husbands office. We (meaning my Husband) installed new carpet, base boards and painted the entire room for me when I came home from work one day. I have always been a fan of pink and gray so I knew that was the colors scheme I wanted for her room. All of the canvas paintings my Mom and I found at Hobby Lobby. We bought the dresser/changing table for $25 and refurnished it in one day. You can see the before and after here. The banner was hand made by my wonderful Sister in Law for my shower and I loved it so much I decided to use it in nursery. The beautiful painting of the little girl was hand drawn by a good friend of my Mother in Laws. I love her work. She is amazing. The convertible crib was a gift from my Mom and we bought it at Buy Buy Baby.
All along in my mind, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted her room to look like but in the end whenever I came across stuff I liked that I knew would look cute. I just bought them knowing they would look great in her room. The only thing I have left to finish is the gallery wall.
Mommy confession: as much as I love her room, I am still not ready for her to sleep in her own crib just yet!
Hope you enjoyed the tour!

The Honest Company Review

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Since Olivia was born a little over two months ago, I’ve been making a conscious effort to really pay attention to what we put on our bodies, as much as what we put in them. Because our skin is our largest organ, it really does matter what we use. I had always heard about The Honest Company before, but just never really thought about using any of their products because I am so used to just using the same products over and over again. My Husband was the one that actually brought home this laundry detergent for me to try and I absolutely fell in love with it. The scent is so subtle, but it’s there… and I love that! It isn’t overpowering, it’s quite light and lovely. Even though it is more expensive than other brands I buy, it's so worth it.
They have so many other products that I want to try now!
What products have you tried that you love from The Honest Company?
