The Perfect Shower Dress

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Dress: c/o Rue107//Sandals: Sam Edelman//Watch: Michael Kors//Necklace: Old//Earrings: Loren Hope

This month is filled with baby showers. Well, just two but feels like a lot. I love that my close friends are having babies, but baby showers bring on a bit of anxiety. What should I wear? What should I bring as a gift? Will it be indoors or outside? And the most important question of all...WILL THERE BE BOOZE?! Just kidding (not really).

Going to baby showers are always fun so finding something to wear can be fun too. I always try to wear something feminine. I mean, what is more feminine than giving birth, right? For me a dress is the perfect choice. It's easy to wear and I know I will be comfortable. 

This wrap dress from Rue107 is perfect for the shower I am attending in two weeks. Not only will I arrive with a snatched waist, but I will also be able to loosen the strings after I eat all of the delicious food! Having a wrap dress in your closet is a must for every woman. They are super easy to wear and flattering to every body type. If you have a small waist a wrap dress will show it off. If you have a fuller bust a wrap dress can provide just enough coverage to flatter your frame and still show off your curves. If you are concerned about your waistline a wrap dress will give you a waistline. I recommend that every woman should find a wrap dress that fits her style and keep it in her closet. This will be the piece that you pull out in an emergency and end up stealing the show!

In two weeks I plan to twirl into the baby shower with this dress on and show off my curves, my style, and mad baby shower game skills!


Carbon Coco

Sunday, February 11, 2018

If there is one thing I am sure of, it's my smile. I brush my teeth twice a day, floss, and gargle with mouthwash in my attempt to keep my pearly whites pearly and white.

I drink coffee throughout the day and I am always concerned about the color of my teeth. Coffee is notorious for giving teeth a yellow brownish tint so I am constantly looking for ways to prevent this from happening. 

I  have to admit that I have been blessed with whiter teeth in general but I've tried a lot of products to keep them white. Whitening toothpastes, gels and trays, and treatments. When I discovered Carbon Coco I was intrigued. Was keeping my teeth white really going to be this simple? No trays? No gels? No sensitivity? Alrighty... it was worth a try. 

It was well worth it! Carbon Coco is an activated charcoal product that has four super duper easy steps. 
  1. Dip your wet toothbrush into the activated charcoal tooth polish and brush for three minutes 
  2. Rinse
  3. Brush with activated charcoal toothpaste for three minutes 
  4. Rinse
TA-DA! THAT'S IT!! Easy right? And I loved it. It's best to use the products for at least 14 days to see the best results, but I honestly saw results after about one week. 

You have to try these products because they are well worth it! 


Wholeme Clusters

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Last year a friend told me about an eating plan called Whole30. I hate to call it a diet because it really wasn't. I didn't deprive myself of anything. I didn't focus on portions or what time I was eating. All I had to do was make sure I ate foods that were on the Whole30 list. EASY PEASY. No sugar, no dairy, no grains, and no legumes. I loved it because I could eat all the foods I loved still. Meat, fruit and vegetables.  The goal is to make sure you are eating whole foods. No replacements either! 

The benefit of Whole30 is that is an anti-inflammatory eating plan. I saw my skin, hair, nails, and body all change just by what I was eating. I suffer from really bad sinus infections and after doing two weeks of Whole30 my sinus headaches went away. I even saw my bad dandruff clear up while doing Whole30. 

I'll be honest and say I struggled a little because there were times when I felt like I needed something sweet. That's why I am so glad I discovered these delicious snacks from Wholeme!   I recently discovered these sweet treats and they're so good! Super tasty and almost Whole30 compliant. Very little sugar, no dairy, and especially no grains! These are perfect for your transition back into regular foods. 

There are four flavors. Each has something different and special so I figured I would share with you how I like to eat each of the different clusters. 

The Lemon Berry Chia is light and fresh. They're perfect for an afternoon pick me up. I shared them with some friends and they all agreed that these clusters were perfect for those moments when you need a little something to get you through the day. Now add a cup of tea and you're all set! 

The Almond Coconut was delicious with fruit! I am always on the go and looking for something that I can grab on the way out of the door. These are perfect for breakfast on the go. Throw some fruit, a little yogurt, and these babies in a bowl and you are on your way.

Salted Peanut Chocolate..I'll repeat...SALTED. PEANUT. CHOCOLATE. Yes that's correct! Who doesn't love peanut butter? Who doesn't love chocolate? Now sprinkle a little salt on it to tie it all together and you got a deal. These are the perfect snack with an evening espresso. 
OK the Cinnamon Banana are my absolute favorite!  Now don't get me wrong the others are wonderful too, but there is something about cinnamon that's just so good! I had these for breakfast with bananas and kiwi but I really didn't need anything with them at all. They are just THAT GOOD! 

So here's what I think. You all need to run out to the grocery store and grab a few packs of Wholeme Clusters and start keeping them in your pantries, your desk and even your car! These are healthly snacks that will hit the spot when need a little sweetness to put you over.
