Walmart / Summer Beauty Box

Beauty boxes are awesome, who's with me!! Walmart offers a seasonal beauty box subscription, you only pay $5 for shipping. If you're in the hunt for an inexpensive beauty box and are wanting to try beauty samples this box is for you. The box comes with beauty samples and tips on products sold at Walmart and their website. It's a fun little box because you don't know what you are getting so you'll sure be surprised when you open it! So four seasons, four boxes only pay $5 for shipping each box. After seeing some of their previous boxes I decided to give it a try. ( Disclaimer: this review is NOT sponsored by Walmart, I bought this with my own money, all opinions are mine. I'm sharing because "Sharing is Caring.") Ad:  I was still lucky to get their summer box! Which means I'll be getting two more before the seasons are over. For the summer box I received 8 products; Banana Boat Sunscreen, Pantene shampoo and conditioner, Aveeno daily mois

Strawberries Ruffle Top

I'm so obsessed with fruit print, it screams summer! As I mentioned in my spoonflower post I had bought several fat quaters with the intention of sewing summer tops for my daughter. I am totally gushing over this watercolor strawberry print! It's A-MAZE-ING, I had been eyeing it for sometime and so I didn't hesitate to add it to my cart!! Oh the damage I would do if I could splurge on yards of spoonflower!! Hey a girl can dream right lol. Ad:    I really wanted to make her another off the shoulder top but this time not a crop top. If you recall the Minnie inspired outfit, I used the same top pattern. The only modification was to lengthen the bottom and lossen the sides for a more relax fit. It came out exactly the way I had pictured it in my head. If only I had more to sew myself one lol. Woohoo another summer top for my darling to add to her wardrobe collection. This momma is on a roll, well that's it for today I'm off to make another summer top

Target / August Beauty Box

Okay, I have to confess something... I may be addicted to beauty boxes!! ( Glad I got that outta my chest lol) I found out that Target offers a beauty box every month, I was like "WHAT!!" Every month they put together a box for you to purchase online for $7, pretty cool right! It is NOT a subscription box, so there is no commitment. They put together a mix of trial and full size products for you to try out, and you know exactly what your getting. What I love about this box is that you can add it to your daily regimen. It is a great way to try products and if you like them you can purchase to full size version. So to sum it up you only pay $7 for the value of $21.   Ad: August beauty box was about getting back on track to your daily routine now that summer will be over. This box contained six items; Dove Clear Finish Dry spray Deodorant, SpaLife Nourishing Facial Mask, Herbal Essences Argan Oil Shampoo, Up & Up Facial Wipes, Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Stri

Pregnancy Skin Care

Oooh the dreaded stretch marks, they are inevitable! They say they are genetic, and appear if you gain weight at a fast pace. What helps is to keep hydrated, gain weight at a slower rate, and applying certain oils and lotions. With my first pregnancy I used a well known brand, Palmers because that's the first one and only one available at the stores. For the oil I used a different brand Bio-Oil. I didn't defeat the stretch marks but they were tiny and subtle on my belly so I was happy about that. This time around I wanted to try a different brand. I really wasn't a fan on the cocoa butter scent nor the texture of Palmer's lotions. I searched on Target's website and read reviews and I stumbled upon Boppy. Yes the makers of nursing pillows. I was a bit skeptical at first since I've only known them for the pillows but after reading reviews I was open minded.
