Inspire His Style for Back To School

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. How is Summer vacation almost done? Didn’t it just start? I’m already feeling frazzled from the Back To School shopping rush, and I don’t even have his full list yet. Check this out, his school gives out the official lists on August 15th… and school starts August 16th. So if you live around me in the Bay Area, look out for the crazy looking rushed moms. You know what I don’t need a list for though? His hygiene products. Jacob is entering the 7th grade and he is so into the whole smelling good thing (thank goodness) and I really have AXE to thank for that. We’ve talked about it here before. My son used to just say “I need soap and deodorant” and it was very blah. I would also have to hound him to USE IT.…

Staying Fresh & Active This Summer With Dove

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. This Summer has been crazy so far, and I cannot believe school is already about to start up again! While we didn’t get to travel as much as we wanted to, it was still pretty active.  Of course the more active you get, the more you depend on your antiperspirant to pull through – which is why I use Dove. Why has it been busy? My work office moved. We spent May and June packing up the old office and then the official move was the weekend after 4th of July. It was hot, sticky and we were all in close quarters. Definitely NOT the time to have your antiperspirant fail on you. Especially when you get to the new office and the air conditioning is BROKEN. That’s right. No air conditioning in July. Ick. This whole move…

The Start to the Perfect Manicure & Pedicure With Parasilk

Sponsored by Parasilk We’ve talked about it numerous times, but I’m going to say it again – my schedule is CRAZY. I work full time, I raise my little boy full time and I blog on the side. When I have a little time to myself, I don’t want to go out much – I want to stay in and relax. Those quick moments are when I like to self pamper and unwind. As you probably also know, my hands are on display here a LOT. I go through hundreds of dollars of nail polish remover a year and I rely on oils and treatments to keep my skin photo ready so I don’t cringe when I post large, up close photos. So I started using Parasilk gLOVE Treats. I’ve been using both the gloves and booties and they are a complete game changer to your manicures and pedicures. So…

Help Your Son Express Himself This Summer

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. I’ve mentioned in the past that my son is 12 now and he’s finding his own identity. He’s over the kid products and moved on up to the grown up grooming section. When he first had the chance to pick out his own deodorant and body wash – he immediately went for AXE products. The scents and the more sophisticated look of the bottles drew him in. Now he’s got his mind on his hair. In the last 6 months he’s wanted specific styles, but as we all know – that takes products. So we went to CVS in search of hair products just for him. Luckily AXE has him covered for hair too! He already went through the “Beckham” clean cut phase, and for Summer he wants to grow his hair out for a messier look. He’s…

#StyleAndSaveNaturally with Suave Green Products at Ralphs

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. It’s heating up here in California, which means we’ll be heading out of the house a LOT more. In the chillier months I prefer to bundle up and settle in, so my makeup and hair routines are basically only done for work. Now I’ll be using more products and getting more into the slightly glam looks to go out and have some fun! I recently picked up some new Suave products at Ralphs and I could not wait to use them and get ready for a night out with my boys. I’ve shown off a variety of Suave products over the years, but this newer line is different and I think it’s one you’ll all love! Suave Green products! What makes Suave Green products different? They are formulated and infused with 100% natural ingredients, plus they contain no…
