STLYISH SUN PROTECTIVE BEACHWEAR AND SWIMWEAR

By on July 15, 2018

Summer is here which for us means plenty of beach days, ice cream, and sunscreen! If you know me then you know I crazy about sun protection and always wearing spf and clothing to cover my skin from the sun. Same goes for my little lady. Lila has some of the fairest skin I have ever seen so keeping it out of the sun is a must. Also she sneezes the second she gets into the sun so it’s sunglasses and a hat for her always- just like mama.

Keeping covered is way easier said than done when it comes to the summer months.  My daughter lives to be in the water and always her best self when at the pool or beach. So while I loved matching her in the water, I needed more! I found this amazing brand called Cabana Life that actually has UPF 50 in their clothing and blocks 98% of UVA + UVB rays. *Cue a large sigh of relief* One look at their site and I saw that they had an entire mommy and me section, which I was instantly drawn to! There are tons of styles of beachwear and swimwear to pick from that are matching and all the patterns are so cute. I have seen UPF swimwear before but usually the clothing is a solid color and it’s still a swimsuit exposing a lot of skin. Well Cabana Life knows what’s up and has something for everyone! From a 2 piece to a uni-suit (I got a uni-suit and let me tell you I am already putting more colors  on my wishlist).) And if that isn’t a enough there’s also a matching set for my little lady.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous summer and will be able to look back at all the memories in a few weeks when school starts. Long live summer!

 

The 3 S’s To Stay Safe From The Sun This Summer:

+ SUNBLOCK / put it on 15 mins before sun exposure and reply every 90 minutes you are in the sun.

+ SPF SWIMWEAR / let your swimwear do the work for you and check for a suit that has UPF and blocks UVA + UVB rays.

+ STAY HYDRATED / an easy way to remember to drink water is treating yourself to a cute new tumbler. I know that having a cute cup with a straw turns drinking water into an accessory.

THE PERFECT PACKING SYSTEM FOR EVERY SEASON OF LIFE

By on July 1, 2018

I have been carrying a bag for as long as I can remember. And I think most women have. There are just so many things to bring along. Keys, lipgloss, phone, wallet, etc. And then you have a baby and somehow the space that was solely occupied by you and was bursting at the seems, now has to be shared by 2. It took me a long time to find a bag that could be shared by two comfortably. But I finally found a flawless packing system and the only con I have listed on my pro / con list is that I didn’t get it sooner.

The bag I’m sharing with you is the Lorie from Lily Jade Co. If you haven’t heard of Lily Jade Co then you might not even be on Instagram. Seriously their bags are everywhere on the ‘gram and no question why because they are STUNNING! And I guarantee you that if you go to your trending page right now your eye will catch one of their gorgeous and vibrant bags in a photo.

I went with the Lorie bag because it’s a large crossover tote that look gorgeous but can hold a TON of stuff. Being able to hold a ton of stuff is a priority in a diaper bag. She is the perfect “daily” bag and I take her everywhere I go. It also perfectly first my 13″ MacBook Pro which is praise hands emoji in my book. You can also carry it 3 ways: tote, messenger, and backpack. I mostly carry backpack style so that my hands are free, but I also love carrying it tote style too.

The most unique thing about this bag is that it can be paired with a companion bag that fits perfectly inside. The Danielle is a bag that I will be reaching for long after the days of baby. From the second I took this bag out of the packaging I knew it was my favorite bag I have ever owned. It is just the right size and is absolutely gorgeous in person! The color is rich and vibrant and the quality is hands down perfection. It’s everything I ever wanted in a bag.

So whether you’re expecting, looking to upgrade your current diaper bag, or are looking for a freaking amazing lifestyle/travel bag this one right here is a winner.

SPRING CLEANING WITH CLOROX

It’s that time of year… Spring Cleaning! I don’t love and I don’t hate it, but every year I do it. There’s something so calming about a clean, decluttered house. It feels like there is more room to breathe! All year I am shoving things into drawers and closets and now it’s time to go through and sort all of the stuff that has piled up. It’s like little mini time capsules spread around the house. Haha, am I right?

When it comes to cleaning products I like to know I’ll be killing all the germs. That’s why I have used Clorox for as long as I can remember. Their products kill 99.9% of germs and I don’t know about you but I can’t live with a number any lower than that. Especially with my little one in the house.

This year I got a little festive and decided to try Clorox’s new Scentiva product line. I chose the Pacific Breeze and Coconut scent for all the products since I wanted one universal scent. And how heavenly does Pacific Breeze and Coconut and sound?! I’m relaxed just thinking about it. Do yourself a favor and next time you are in the cleaning isle, look out for it because there is a scratch a sniff on the bottle and with one sniff you’ll want to take it home.

These are the products I picked up and why:

CLOROX SCENTIVA FOAM CLEANER – I bought this cleaner for our tub/shower. It removes soap scum 15x’s faster for a spotless tub. This product is always under the bathroom sink for quick, powerful cleaning.

CLOROX SCENTIVA MULTI-SURFACE CLEANER – I think this product might be my favorite cleaning product, like ever. I seriously use it everyday in every room of the house. It’s my little powerhouse cleaner cutting tough grease and grime while killing 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. Talk about a special helper!

CLOROX SCENTIVA TOILETWAND SYSTEM – I have had one of these wands in my bathroom since I was a kid. Just clean the bowl, then toss the head away. Killing 99.9% of germs, my mom was all about them! I was so excited when I saw they had these in the Pacific Breeze and Coconut scent too.

CLOROX SCENTIVA TOILET CLEANING GEL – I like to have this gel on hand for a deeper clean. The wands are great but every few times I like to switch it up and get in there to dissolve hard water and lime scale stains.

So now you know my top 4 bathroom picks. Do you have a favorite that you think I am missing? Leave me a comment below to let me know.

GREAT CARE FOR LESS MONEY WITH SINGLE CARE

By on April 4, 2018

REAL TALK. I don’t think I knew a single thing about healthcare before I was pregnant. But let me tell ya I learned really fast. The first thing I learned? It’s expensive! So ever since I have been on the hunt for more affordable options. When I found Single Care I knew it was a game changer. It was free to sign up and can instantly search nearby locations for prescriptions, dental, vision, and even video doctor visits. It’s been a huge relief to have this kind of support available. Less time for stress and more time for fun!

How Single Care Works

PRESCRIPTIONS:SingleCare partners with pharmacies nationwide to get you affordable prices on your prescriptions.

DENTAL:SingleCare handles patient billing for dental offices nationwide. Reducing the work to see a patient means their partners offer great care at the best possible price.

VISION:SingleCare partners with Walmart Vision Centers across the country to handle billing and to make routine eye care more affordable for consumers.

VIDEO DOTOR VISITS: SingleCare has partnered with MeMD to provide quick, affordable doctor visits through a phone or computer. Members spend less time at the waiting room and more time feeling better.
