Natural Everyday Makeup with Burt's Bees: NEW BB Cream and Lipstick

 Affiliate Link Press Sample 

The transition to the warm days of Spring and Summer has finally happened! With the shift to warmer days and relaxed and casual activities, my makeup needs a shift, too! While I usually do go with a rather natural look, I really lighten up and simplify even more when the weather gets warm. Summer days were meant for fuss-free makeup. 

Burt's Bees has some fantastic new products for fuss-free Summer makeup looks! I am especially loving their brand NEW BB Cream and their new Lipsticks!

OMG! I am loving these new lipsticks from Burt's Bees. Specifically, I am adoring the shade #510 Iced Iris. It is such a beautiful and natural soft rose pink. It gives my lips lovely shine and moisture plus lovely pink color. These lipsticks are 100% natural and packed with moisturizing ingredients like Moringa Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil ,and Beeswax. The formula is very conditioning and gives you such a smooth satin finish. They have 14 shades. I need to try more! ;) 

OMG! This BB Cream is my new favorite!!! I absolutely adore the sheer and natural coverage. I would say the coverage is in-between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation. It is 98.9% natural and has SPF 15 protection. I wear the shade Light which actually works really well with my super fair skin. It lightly hydrates and smooths my skin while giving natural and sheer coverage. It gives me just enough to make my skin look better and disguise redness. Plus, it does not break me out and it boosts my SPF coverage and moisture. Plus, I love how light and fresh it feels on my skin. This is my new favorite BB Cream!!! 

Be sure to check out these new items from Burt's Bees next time you are at the drugstore! These are fantastic products and it is just another big plus that they are natural, too! :)

Tackle Life's Messy Kid Moments: Cleanup with Pledge® Multi Surface

Sponsored Post

It is Springtime! As a Mom of a toddler and a preschooler, I know that Springtime fun can often equal Springtime messes. My kids are super active this time of year. We try to play outside as much as possible as the weather really is beautiful. However, even when we play outside, the mess can certainly be tracked back inside. Springtime also brings heavy pollen and allergies. Pollen season in Georgia is no joke. So, sometimes the pollen and our allergies drive us indoors for playtime. My kids are so creative with their play...but, guess what? They are pretty good at making messes, too! I guess that means that they are having fun, right!? ;) From snacks, to art time, to sticky fingerprints all over, it can be hard for a busy Mom to keep her house in tip top shape. 

I try to get creative with our playtime in the Spring. We just traveled for Easter, so our Spring Break week was spent at home and around town. I had to keep the kids active and engaged with fun indoor activities like art, toys, games, kid cooking, snack time, etc as well as our usual backyard playtime, playground fun, and play dates. While I love outdoor play, since it keeps the mess outside, indoor playtime cleanup can be a snap with the right products (no need to squelch the fun!). 

Arts and Crafts are my kids' favorite things to do indoors. From coloring, to painting, to simple DIY crafts, it really is fun for everyone! My 4-year old daughter is pretty independent with markers and paint. However, I must really be hands-on with my 2-year old son. He loves using paints, markers, and crayons but, as you can imagine, paint and marker often get everywhere except for the paper! Using washable paints and markers is a must! However, I still must be prepared. I tie my daughter's hair back to keep it out the paint. I also use old kids tee shirts (cut up the back and worn backwards) as smocks to protect their clothes. I even use a drop cloth/matt on the ground to protect the floor. Even with all the precautions, I still have a ton of cleanup to do after our art activities are complete.

Sure, I get many ideas from Pinterest and sometimes get quite creative with our art-time. However, some of the best fun can be hand with art supplies that I already have on hand. The kids get so excited when I get their table set up to paint or color. Our most recent art time involved a little bit of coloring with markers followed up with a painting activity. My kids craft table started out clean but soon was covered with marker marks and paint splatters. 

For cleanup, I love using Pledge® Multi Surface Antibacterial Everyday Cleaner. I honestly just never have to worry about cleanup when I am in the midst of a fun activity with the kids. I know that my trusty Pledge® Multi Surface Antibacterial Everyday Cleaner will clean everything up easily when we are all finished. Just look at my before and after photos of today's painting activity! That table was a mess. Yet, everything wiped up quickly and easily with a little bit of Pledge® Multi Surface Antibacterial Everyday Cleaner. So easy!

I purchased my Pledge® Multi Surface Antibacterial Everyday Cleaner at my local Walmart. It was so easy to find it in the grocery area of the store on the aisle with all the surface cleaners. They had a great selection of Pledge® Multi Surface products in a variety of scents and formulas. Plus, you always know you are getting a great price and good value for your money at Walmart!

Pledge® Multi Surface Antibacterial Everyday Cleaner is not just for art clean up at my house. It is great for everyday cleaning as well. It cleans windows as well as other surfaces like coffee tables, the dishwasher, the kitchen table, and the kitchen counter. I have a constant battle with little kid fingerprints in my house. My Pledge® Multi Surface wipes them up with ease. Plus, the product has an awesome scent! Currently I am using the Antibacterial formula with the fresh citrus scent. This one in particular is nice because it kills 99.9% of bacteria*, kills cold and flu viruses, and it leaves no smeary residue.

How are you keeping your kids entertained this spring? Do you have any Mom-tips for tackling the messy kid moments in your life? I would love to hear them!

Gifts for Mom: Mother's Day Sets from L'Occitane

 Affiliate Link Press Sample

Mother's Day is almost here! Have you shopped yet for Mother's Day? If not, I have some great ideas for you: Mother's Day Gift Sets from L'Occitane! Most Moms are in need of a little pampering. What better gift than a gift of luxury skincare and fragrance! 

Do you have any Mother's Day traditions? Typically we do a Mother's Day cookout. My husband does most of the food on the grill and I do side dishes. We have my Mom come over and we spend the whole day together as a family with the kids. We also send flowers to my Mother-in-Law who lives out of town. My biggest request every year for Mother's Day is breakfast in bed. I honestly look forward to it all year! It is literally the one day that I am not up before everyone else in the house, lol! 

In addition to our annual cookout and flowers for the Moms, I always like giving a nice beauty/pampering gift. L'Occitane's Mother's Day gift sets are a great option! Not only are the products inside amazing, but also these sets are a fabulous deal! Even if you are not shopping for a Mom for Mother's Day, you should consider checking out these gift sets because they are such an amazing value!!! Each set is designed around a popular or bestselling L'Occitane collection. 

Shea Butter Collection ($69) – A luxurious body care set that protects, nourishes and revitalizes skin from head-to-toe with L’Occitane’s most beloved ingredient, shea butter. Includes Shea Butter Hand Cream, Foot Cream, Extra Gentle Milk Soap, Ultra-Rich Body Cream and Lip Balm.
Lavender Collection ($69) – A premium collection of soothing, instantly calming lavender products that will leave the body relaxed and stress-free. Includes Lavender Foaming Bath, Hand Cream, Candle, Perfumed Sachet and Bonne Mere Lavender Soap.
Verbena Collection ($69) – Feel refreshed and revitalized with an invigorating verbena-infused collection, boasting notes of rose, geranium and lemon tree. Includes Verbena Eau de Toilette, Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Perfumed Sachet and Cooling Hand Cream.
Almond Collection ($75) – Sourced from Haute-Provence, the almond oil within this collection has the natural ability to leave skin soft and radiant, while adding a light scent. Includes Almond Shower Oil, Milk Concentrate, Delicious Hand Cream and two Delicious Bar Soaps.
Divine Collection ($190) – Ultimate skincare regimen offering luxurious, age-defying benefits with Immortelle essential oil for more youthful and rejuvenated skin. Includes Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam, Divine Cream, Divine Eyes and Divine Lotion. 
This year, I tried out the Divine Collection and the Shea Butter Collection. These are already two of my favorite lines from L'Occitane! So, I got to explore products that I already loved within these boxes as well as finding new products to love. The collections come beautifully boxed and wrapped. There is no question, if you are ordering online, you don't even need to wrap these beautiful sets. The boxes are Gold and Gold with floral print. They come with a ribbon and tissue inside and even a coupon for additional purchases. 

I am going to give my Mom the Shea Butter Collection this year. She has often told me about how much she loves using Shea Butter products after her baths in the evenings. So, I think this set will be perfect for her! In this set she will get a HUGE jar of Ultra Rich Shea Butter Body Cream as well as Shea Butter Hand Cream, a bar soap, a foot cream, and a lip balm. She can literally drench herself from head-to-toe in the decadent luxury of soothing and moisturizing Shea Butter! Plus, can I just mention that I adore the scent of these products! 

The Divine Collection is a skincare lovers dream collection! I already mentioned that I am a huge fan of the Divine Collection products as a whole. Such a great skincare line! So, I am super excited that this set contains some of my L'Occitane faves like the Divine Eyes and Divine Cream. Plus, I am excited to try out the Cleansing Foam and the Divine Lotion as well. I will fully admit, this set is for me! This is my Mother's Day treat to myself. :) 

What are you doing for Mother's Day this year? I would love to hear about your plans and your Mother's Day Gift Ideas! If you are still searching for gift ideas, I highly recommend these gorgeous Mother's Day Gift Sets from L'Occitane! :)

Introducing: RoC® Multi Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck, and Face Cream

 Press Sample Affiliate Link Blogger Ambassador
#DecolletageEntourage #gotitfree

New Product Alert!

Have you ever felt like something was missing from your daily skincare routine? Well, RoC® has a new product to help with that! :) 

As a RoC® Skincare Ambassador, I get to share the all of the newest brand news and new product launches with you! Over the years, I have become such a big fan and supporter of the brand. I am super excited about their brand new launch: RoC® Multi Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck, and Face Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

Raise your hand if you neglect your neck and chest area (me! ducking head in mock-shame). Seriously though, I only remember to apply products to my neck area about 50% of the time. I blame my busy schedule and sometimes rushed beauty routine. Typically, I remember to apply products to the neck and chest area if I know I am going to be in the sun and need a SPF product for sun protection. However, my neck and chest area need more TLC than that! Often, the neck and chest area is the very first area of your body to reveal your true age. As a woman in her early 40s, the time is now! I need to prevent aging in this area before it is too late. This is why I am so excited about this new launch from RoC®!

I know that I am not alone. The researchers at RoC® concur. Many women forget to treat an often neglected area of the body...the decolletage (neck and chest). In fact, 70% of women say signs of aging on their neck are more noticeable than around their face, yet only 9% use anti-aging products specifically designed for this area. 

Here is my neck (and my gorgeous new Lizzie Fortunato Necklace!) after using the Multi Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck, and Face Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 for a few weeks. Interested in learning more about the necklace? Be sure to check it out and other designs on This piece is a stunning gold-plated brass collar with semi-precious black onyx cobochon inlay.

RoC®'s new Multi Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck, and Face Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is exactly the product I need in my everyday routine to bring neck and chest skincare to the forefront of my mind. Using a product specifically for that area is all the reminder that I need to pamper that skin everyday with not only amazing anti-aging ingredients but also the SPF protection that I need. I am so super excited about this product! I have long been a fan of the original RoC® Multi Correxion products. So, I am super pumped about this line addition!
