3 BABYGANICS Products You Should Be Using

A clean house is a must for our family. I do my best to always use baby-safe products, when I’m cleaning I never want to question could this be safe for Blakely. When Blakely was born I didn’t know what products to use, there are just so many out there! But I was won over by Babyganics because their products are formulated with plant-based, natural and certified organic ingredients. Recently, Babyganics sent me some their fabulous products to try, some of these I already use daily and others were new to me. So today I’m excited to share 3 of my favorite Babyganics products. Using these products give me peace of mind that I am using good and gentle cleaning products in our house.

Product 1: Babyganics Mineral Based Baby Sunscreen Lotion

This has been my go to sunscreen since Blakely was born. I love it because the ingredients are way more natural than other sunscreens, it’s non-allergenic and tear free.When you have a one year old who won’t sit still while putting on sunscreen an effortless application is a MUST! So I love how Babyganics applies, it rubs in the skin right away, has no strange sunscreen smell!

Product 2: Babyganics Face and Hand Wipes

The day these Babyganics goodies arrived at our door, Blakely had come down with her second cold ever. There were a lot of boogers and sneezes happening at our house, the face and hand wipes came in so handy that week. They are super gentle wipes, Blakely did not have any redness around her nose the entire cold. These wipes are very hydrating and they are unscented (unlike some other boogie wipes out there)!unnamed.jpg

Product 3: Babyganics Foaming Dish & Bottle Soap

It’s crazy how fast bottles add up in the sink. Every mom knows the faster the bottles can get cleaned and rinsed the better! Foam soap is great because there is alway less rinsing aka less water used, this soap takes off the residue and 100% gets rid of the stinky smell of formula.

If you love Babyganics products too… DON’T FORGET to enter our giveaway over on Instagram. You have until midnight Thursday, September 21st to enter, the winner will be announced on Friday.

SEPT 4: Buxom Plump line Lip Liner  is a must have because it is an all-in-one plumping lip liner that has a nice built-in brush to help define, contour and fill lips. UGH I am obsessed with BUXOM.. and they are marked down to $8.50

SEPT 6: TARTE The Lip Sculptor Doubled Ended Lipstick &Gloss  is only $10.00 for two in one lipstick and a gloss. For me that is a must try!!

SEPT 12: Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel $19 If you haven’t tried Peter Thomas Roth products you need to jump on the bandwagon. This cleansing gel is said to help resurface the skin and support natural cell turnover. At 30 years old this is the type of cleanser I need because it will help diminish the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles!

SEPT 14: Lorac TANtalizer Buildable Bronzing Powder Online Only  is cut down to $16.00. I’m a sucker for a good bronzer and bronzer is build-able (YES!) highly pigmented (double YES!)…can’t wait to try this one!

SEPT 17:Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector  50% off and is only $15.00. OMG one of my favorite products of all time!  This truly has come in handy as a new mom, it really minimizes under eye darkness by brightening and evening skin tone. If you love that glowing look, make sure to snag one of these on Sept 17th!

SEPT 21: Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation $16.50 I have not tried this before but I am always looking to try anything color correcting. During pregnancy I was blessed to get hyperpigmentation known as melasma. So any product that helps color correct I will try!

SEPT 23 Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum $22.50 Vitamin C is not only the great for your immune system but its wonderful for your face too. It is known to help with melasma *pregnancy mask* by a helping to brighten uneven skin tones while diminishing the look of fine lines and discoloration.

 

 

Introducing POSIE+Co

IMG_2430.jpg

I am so happy to share with all of you what I have been working on lately. I created a graphic tee shirt company POSIE+Co.   My sister for years wanted and encouraged me to go into the world of fashion. Maybe fashion merchandising or be a retail buyer…. but I chose the world of nursing. Which is amazing and I am so happy that I became a nurse but for me I ALWAYS had the little (fashion) place in my heart that needed to be filled. It is funny how life comes full circle, so here I am with now with my company POSIE+Co. One of my missions with POSIE+Co  is to collaborate with other military wives. I found as a military wife sometimes we put our gifts and passions on the back burner, POSIE+Co gives a platform for some wives to share their voice and gifts. My first collaboration is with my best friend Ally who is a Air Force wife and the most talented artist and calligrapher out there (SEE HER SHOP HERE) and a POST all about her written by the Everyday Grace Blog, (<——– click the link to enter out giveaway #everydayposie or here—–> a Rafflecopter giveaway)

The Everyday Grace and Posie + CO presents.jpgThis has been such a learning and growing experience for me. My husband always says it is so important to go through uncomfortable situations or experiences in life to truly grow as a person. And for me starting a company and everything that comes with it has been fun but uncomfortable at times. Not knowing how to do everything and how much time something takes…. but it has been worth it and so much fun! SO check out the website and shop a little, each month we have a TEE OF THE MONTH  and LIMITED EDITION TEES so make sure to stop back and check those out.

July Beauty Budget Picks

7CE86A02-1A56-4B14-8910-1EF5D6950E84.jpgHappy July Friends… Sorry I have been MIA! I have been traveling and working on a few new ventures. But as you all know I love my beauty budget picks  (<—-shop May/June’s Picks) and I have some great ones to share with you!

Boots No7 Stay Perfect Foundation 30ml .. is a new favorite foundation. My Target store here in So Cal actually has a rep in the store on Friday and Saturdays to color match you and answer any questions. It is a medium coverage and goes on so smooth and I love that it has SPF 15 in already in it… I am pretty fair unless I have tanner on so I use Cool Ivory.

Boots Botanics Facial Oil 0.84 Fl Oz / 25 Ml (Pack of 1)“>Botanics Nourishing facial oil 100% organic with Rosehip is one of the BEST finds ever. I have super dry skin and a lot of the times moisturizers are to heavy and clog my pores. This oil is hydrates and truly locks in moisture for hours, I use right it under my foundation and it also gives my face a smooth finish. It’s infused with Rosehip oil, which is rich in omegas and essential fatty acids, and let me tell you it smells amazing!

L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Voluminous Primer Mascara, Primer, 0.24 Fluid Ounce“>L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Primer is my go to budget primer for my eyes. I will admit I love Christian Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer, 0.33 Ounce“>Dior 3D Triple Volume lash primer and Mac False Lashes Maximizer – WHITE“>M·A·C False Lashes Maximizer. But for the price L’Oréal primer does the trick and it does it well!

L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Infallible Paints Eyeliner, Black Party, 0.03 Fluid Ounce“>Infallible Paints Liquid Eyeliner goes on so smooth, smoother than any liquid eyeliner I have ever used. And it comes in multiple vibrant shades that are really fun to play with, definitely worth the $9.99.

Hope you will try some of these, let me know if you do and love them! And remember to Follow my blog with Bloglovin

OMG… 90’s shoes are back

unnamed.jpgMe in the 90’s freaking out over some Dr. Martens… GOSH the 90’s were the best!

There were so many great fashion trends in the 90’s it is hard to keep track… from chokers to grunge like flannel shirts and then there were the shoes.… How amazing were the shoes! I am here to say the fabulous shoes from the 90s are back (Cue the Spice Girls music). I 100% owned and still have a few of these styles in my old closet at my parents house, it’s funny how trends always come back around. This is one trend that we’re glad to see making a comeback.
