MommyLicious Maternity {Giveaway}

If you missed my maternity review yesterday, you also missed the fact that I said that because I am pregnant, I am focusing on maternity companies for my giveaways for the next few weeks. So if you’re pregnant, hold your bladders, because I’ve got several amazing maternity giveaways headed your way! Here’s the first of many maternity giveaways to come: MommyLicious Maternity!

logo

MommyLicious Maternity is a site dedicated to pregnant and nursing mothers. They carry affordable and stylish maternity tops, bottoms and dresses in regular sizes as well as plus sizes. Plus they offer nursing clothing, nursing pajamas, maternity bras, and maternity lingerie! These ladies are dedicated to helping you look and feel good while you’re pregnant and beyond! And their customer service staff is available to help you with any questions you have about their clothes, sizes, styles, etc. Check out some of the cute tops they carry below:

tops

I had a hard time picking just one top to review because there were so many different styles to choose from! I eventually decided to review the Yacht Bound Maternity Top in Teal/Banana. I love stripes, so this one immediately caught my eye. The teal/banana combo is so summery and since I will be pregnant all summer long I thought it would be perfect. The top also comes in peach/banana striped (also summery and cute!) and black/white striped.

shirt

I love the fabric of this shirt. It’s thin and lightweight, perfect for hot summer days. The material (100% Rayon) is soft and stretchy and glides smoothly over my big belly. The length is pretty long and can stretch down to my mid-hips, but because it’s a thinner material it usually creeps its way back up to the top of my hips after a few minutes.

tag

The neckline is a generous scoop but I didn’t feel it was too low to show off too much cleavage. In terms of size, I feel like it ran a little small. I was a medium pre-pregnancy, but since my chest has grown considerably in the last few months, the medium was a bit tight and I would probably feel more comfortable in a large. The good news is because it’s so stretchy, I will be able to wear it post-pregnancy and no one will know it was ever a maternity top (except those people who saw me in it every week for the past 6 months!).

casual

This top is only $19.99, and most of their tops run about $20-$30. These clothes really are pretty affordable and should last you through a few pregnancies, so go ahead and check out their collection of maternity pants, skirts, sleepwear and dresses–including bridesmaid and wedding dresses! One lucky winner will get $25 to spend on anything at MommyLicious Maternity!

Ageless Derma Natural Camoufleur {Review}

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When I first saw this product, I was interested in reviewing it mostly because I wanted to find out why and how this product could be sold for $25 for being so small and looking just like powder foundation, but categorized as a concealer.  I’ve reviewed Ageless Derma products in the past, and have been quite impressed, so I had even more reason to be excited about this “natural camoufleur” product.
 ageless_derma_logo

Ageless Derma carries skin care products, mineral makeup, and spa services.  Within the mineral makeup line is this Camoufleur Concealer, created to cover up imperfections of the skin.  We’ve all got them–scars, brown spots, or port wine stains.  I have quite a bit of spots left from my acne-ridden teenage years that I routinely try to conceal.

IMG_9743

This versatile mineral make up concealer comes in five different shades, and I chose to review the “wheat” color.  It is very creamy and light–a good mix between powder and liquid.  Ageless Derma claims that this concealer is actually healthy for your skin since it is 100% mineral while being free of parabens.  Ingredients include apple extract, mineral oil, colloidal oatmeal, beeswax, and horseradish.

IMG_9756

When I’ve applied this concealer, I’ve rarely needed more than what is on my finger above.  The substance is somehow thick enough to get excellent coverage with one layer, while being light enough that you don’t even feel it there.

What I didn’t even think about initially is how this can be used to hide signs of anti-aging.  You can use it under eyes to hide dark circles and to fill in wrinkles.  Ok, so notice the small scars along my jawline and the imperfections all along my cheeks.  I used about a fingertip’s worth of this concealer on the trouble spots, followed by light foundation, and I was so pleased with the improvement.

bef-aftI think it looks very natural, and with a thicker application, I think you could get near flawless.  Whenever I apply this, it lasts throughout the day without drying out my skin or becoming noticeable under mineral foundation powder.  Think of this as a concealer as well as anti-aging makeup, and you’re getting a two for one deal out of this product.

Mary Kay Satin Hands {Review}

Disclosure: I recieved this product as part of an advertorial.

As a little girl, I loved tagging along with my mom and going to Mary Kay parties. Putting on too dark makeup and giggling with her and her friends really taught me what it meant to be a lady. Thinking back on it, I’m sure that deep down those parties were the beginning of my love for makeup and skin care and I’m really thankful for those fun memories. My favorite part of the parties however, was the part where we would all line up at a sink and do the multiple step process called “Satin Hands”. This process seemed like pure magic. It would take your dry, rough hands and make them like new again. For someone like me, who has always had chronic dry skin ,I felt like this process was truly the only way to get soft hands.

 

Mary Kay Logo

  Flash forward to now. Although my first priority is being a mom and a wife, I still try to be a lady.  In some ways, I’ve really grown up when it comes to skin care, but my hands still take a beating. Winter dryness and constant washing to prevent spreading germs has really taken a toll on my hands. They look (and feel) like sandpaper. Which is not at all ladylike. In fact, it’s just gross. So when I was approached to test a sample of the newer formulated, old favorite, I jumped at the chance.  My hands couldn’t stop clapping at  the thought of finally being soft again.

 

20140219-080616.jpg

 

Satin hands is a three step process. Step one is the hand softener, which feels like a greasy gel. I used this step to pretend like I was on a beach somewhere, while I closed my eyes and gave myself a hand massage, really working in the product.  Step two is the real magic. This is the exfoliating step. I worked extra hard to focus on my problem areas, wrists, knuckles, and inner finger joints are no match for this stuff. After rinsing and drying completely, the final step is the hand cream. Luxurious and soft, my hands felt like they were receiving a one of a kind spa treatment.

But the proof is in the pudding. My hands that once looked like a road map of dry, cracked lines, are now smooth and lovely. And the transformation only took a few minutes. It sure beats sitting in the dermatologist office, I’ll tell you that.

Satin Hands retails for $34.oo and is only available for purchase from a Mary Kay representative.  Click HERE to purchase. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services that I personally adore and think that you (the reader) will enjoy as well. Also a special “Thank you” to Jamie Schwarz for allowing me to review your product!

Peekaboo-Chic {Giveaway}–CLOSED

So, it finally got “cold” here in Southern California. As in the high is only in the 50s and 60s during the day! I know this sounds ridiculous to those of you in below-freezing temps, but trust me, 50° seems really cold when last week we were strutting around in shorts because it was 80°! So, I’m all about layers right now–and have I got some cute layers for you!

logo

Peekaboo-Chic is an adorable online boutique that specializes in “lavish layering for women, ” especially in regard to “skirt and legwear accentuation.” I bet you didn’t know you could accentuate your skirt or legwear, but oh, you can! All of their creations are handcrafted from patterns made by fashion designers in Utah, and these ladies know what they’re doing. Their creations are so cute!

clothesboots

I’m loving all of their Boot Socks! I never seem to have the right boots or the right outfit to pull this look off, but after seeing how cute these socks are, I sure want to! They also make boho-chic hair accessories, beautiful slip dresses that are perfect for that dress that is too low at the top and too high in the bottom, as well as slip extenders. I was sent the Bring on the Frill Layering Skirt in Gray to review, and can I just say, I LOVE the versatility of this skirt!

skirt

First of all, it can be worn as the obvious, a skirt. The top panel can be worn flat to lengthen the skirt or folded down to shorten it and add extra coverage of your middle section. The fabric is polyester/spandex so it’s a little clingy on my bum when worn this way, but if I pair it with a pair of leggings or tights, it lessens the effect.

High waist

folded

Next, it can be worn as a slip extender. I’ve already praised the utility of such slip extenders, so I won’t say much more than they are awesome. I especially love this skirt as a slip extender because the fabric is super soft and stretchy but also a little silky, so it flows nicely underneath my skirt instead of bunching up or feeling uncomfortable like some slips can feel.

slip

Lastly, it can be worn as an adorable frilly tunic! Like I said, the material is really soft and silky, so I had to wear a shirt underneath and put a belt around my waist to help the top stay up and finish the look, but I love the final product! Super put together and right on-trend.

tunic

Do I need to say that I love this skirt? For $36 you are getting an incredibly versatile piece that can be worn in a variety of ways and a variety of settings. Dress it up with some bling and wear it to a wedding; dress it down with a pair of jeans and wear it to Girls Night! It comes in a variety of cute shades including Cream, Camel, Black, Red and Mustard, so it can be worn with countless skirts, dresses, pants, tops and sweaters. The Bring on the Frill Layering Skirt can be purchased at Peekaboo-chic.com. But if you’re feeling lucky, enter below to win a skirt of your own in Black or Cream! And be sure to connect with them on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram to be in the know on the latest deals and steals!

I am in love with Valentine’s Day!!  You’d think, after years and years of dreading the day that everyone else had a bouquet of roses delivered and a giant stuffed teddy to carry around at school, that I’d be a hater, but I can’t help falling in love with the idea of being in love!  Now that I have a live-in Valentine and two little sweethearts to love on, I am even more aglow with rosy Valentine feelings and urges to cut out strands of paper hearts and glue together glittery cards!

logoSo what are YOU doing for Valentine’s day?  Do you need a dress for your date night?  24/7 Frenzy has an entire collection of little black dresses, perfect for impressing your sweetheart and looking glam out on the town.

index12453 19168 4901 31540

Besides LBD’s, 24/7 Frenzy has an extensive collection of casual dresses, tops, fun rompers, and an impressive number of lacy sleepwear items.  I picked out a pair of something lacy for myself, a microfiber cami and short set, crossdyed and detailed with rosettes.  I found the top to be the perfect type of cami for under button-ups.  Just a little lace to look fancy, while not too sheer or cheap.

IMG_9502IMG_9668

Most of the 24/7 Frenzy items range from $40-$50, but you can get free shipping on orders over $100.  For orders under $100, shipping is a flat rate of only $6.99.  Besides clothing, there are also a number of pieces of jewelry I could wear every day:

I could do anything in a cute dress, couldn’t you?  No matter how bad the date went, or how poorly by interview turned out, I could always face hard things or missed opportunities or even mean people if I was wearing something I loved!  The more likely I am to feel stressed or worried in a situation, the more effort goes into my outfit so that how I look can be the last thing I worry about.  Another thing I never want to have to worry about is how much leg or cleavage I shouldn’t be showing in a professional environment.  While layering is always an option, sometimes its just so much nicer to go modest the first time 🙂

Let me show you the most darling collection of dresses that I would wear in a heartbeat to boost my confidence in any situation!  These are the beautiful dresses of Modest Pop:

4Sleek, professional, and feminine, yes?

Modest Pop is a store that has just boomed since the last time we worked together (and you can read that review HERE).  What once was a small boutique is now a thriving super site of dozens of beautiful things.  They carry tops, skirts, slips, professional dresses and more casual dresses, much like these below and the dress I picked out for myself.

Here is the Daisy Dress, which is sold for $48, available in blue or green, and in sizes XS through 2X!

blue3

I love love love this dress!  I think the starch white lace on top is beautiful and the print is so sweet and vintage.  The full skirt is so fun to wear with boots, and the style makes it easy to accessorize.  I love the invisible zipper in the back, the included belt, the refreshingly long length, and the beautiful silhouette it creates.

blue1

The empire waist is probably lovely on girls without a lot of curves, but not so friendly on us full-figured girls, so note that before taking these pictures, I made a quick seamstress alteration and took 4″ off the hem and lengthened the torso with this extra fabric, so that the gathers (which I changed into pleats) would lay beneath the belt and not above it.

Also note the big and beautiful selection of clothing for sister missionaries!  If you message them on their Facebook page telling them where you are going on a mission, they will message you with a 15% off code!  Must tell my sister…

Go pick out your next favorite dress!  Things go quick, so act fast and make sure you follow ModestPop to get a heads up on new styles…

When I don’t get around to the laundry every other day, it only takes a week of working out for me to realize how many workout pants and tops I actually have, and how many of those I actually like wearing.  I have a lot of pants that are too long and thick, too many tops are aren’t breathable, and just too many articles that aren’t comfortable enough to be chosen first, second, or third when I’m reaching for gym clothes.  I needed some new options that I loved, and when I met Onzie, the stars aligned and we became instant friends.

130153875_640

Onzie carries the most amazing clothes for the hot and steamy divas of the gym.  Seriously, their clothing is attractive and sexy, cute and unique.  They’re best used for activities like pilates, spinning, swimming, surfing, running or hooping, or any activity where you want to look cute and not like a dripping mess.  They are perfect for hot yoga!

@BARBARAJEAN_YOGA @VIC_YOGAINTHEWORLD @KATHY0805 @YOGAGIRLCAN

Their designs and patterns are so fun!

IMG_7489__40417.1378597572.175.175 IMG_9655__34965.1383800731.1280.1280__84199.1388860818.175.175 IMG_9597__99454.1383800492.1280.1280__02660.1388859081.175.175

I knew I’d love everything I picked out from Onzie, but I’m happy to report that I was pleasantly surprised with all three of these items.  I love them more in person than what the photos presented, and that is sometimes a rare thing.

IMG_9296

Here I am showing off the Onzie Hoodie in Purple, and the Capri Pant in Cheetah.

IMG_9328

What first made these items stand out to me was their silky feel and strong stretch being so thin and durable.  The fabric used is very breathable, so you don’t feel inhibited, hot, or unable to move.  I wore my new outfit for a workout the very next morning after the package arrived, and I was so impressed by how ‘contained’ and cute I felt!  The material is very fast-drying, so you’re quick to feel comfortable again.

hoodie

The pants have about a 4″ waistband, but they’re still low-rise and very comfortable.  The waistband isn’t biting, the length is just perfect, and the sizing is “spot” on, haha.  Now, I’m not really into purple, and in fact, this is probably the very first purple thing in my closet EVER, but for some reason, I really love this color!  It is deep enough to look mature, and it pairs so well with the cheetah!  I heart these thumb holes!!!

IMG_9322

This last little number (below) is the High Waist Short, and fortunately for you, it will not be seen on me in photos, but know that it fits like a dream and I CAN’T WAIT to take it to the beach!  Onzie clothing can be worn for everyday wear, but they are also designed to withstand and perform in chlorine and salt water environments.  Wouldn’t these be great for triathlon training?

black copy So at this point (above), the city bus driver yells out something like, “Give the photographer what he wants!”  ?!

And so, my friends, take my word that these are really great clothes.  I’m sold.  And you are totally in luck, because…

Mía Mariú’s New Fragrance Collection {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When my husband and I were dating, we were discussing what about the opposite gender we are most attracted to.  You know, is it the guy’s smile, their sense of humor, or their baby blue eyes that make you weak in the knees?  I was pretty surprised to learn that “Charlie” is first and foremost attracted to a girl’s SCENT.  Really?!  Above a girl’s looks, legs, personality, or straight teeth, he’s most attracted to the way she smells?

Now that we’re married, he still won’t let me pick out perfume for myself.  He has to approve first and he is VERY PARTICULAR.  I was a little nervous when I first tried on this new fragrance called Magia from Mía Mariú, becuase I knew that if he didn’t like it, I’d likely be gifting it to my college sister.  Well, no worries, because he loves it, and I’m oh so glad I get to keep it!

mia-mariu-logo-300x180

Mía Mariú is becoming one of my favorite online shops for beauty products.  I first reviewed their makeup (you can read that review HERE) and have been using the eyeshadow practically every weekend out, and then a few months ago I reviewed their anti-aging skincare line (and you can read that review HERE), which I also thought was fantastic.  Add their new fragrance collection, and you might as well order anything and everything from Mía Mariú and save yourself some shipping costs.

2f7966c4996c026f9f08c611c7485d5b9b318090

There are three new fragrances from Mía Mariú, two of which are for men, called Caoba and Acqua.  These fragrances are EDT 1.7 oz.  Now in case you didn’t know, and I myself was clueless about this til I met Scent Boy, EDT stands for Eau de toilette which is 4 – 10% perfume oil.  This is a lighter fragrance which is most used for the casual everyday use because it will last for 2 to 4 hours.  Bring this along with you to work if you want it to be noticeable after lunch.

IMG_9250 copyTo me, the smell is something a little floral and fresh.  It doesn’t smell too ‘old-lady’ or too young, while still smelling professional and alluring.  The bottle is beautiful, heavy, sturdy, and easy to use, while the tall square shape fits nicely inside small medicine cabinets.IMG_9256

See that little black tube?  Mia Mariu also sent me a Perfecting Finish Hydrating Stick Gloss in a vibrant red called Amore.  Beautiful!  There’s nothing more nasty than a tube of lipstick that tries out your lips to the point of looking cracked and perma-stained, but this substance nourishes while looking glossy and bright.

IMG_9251 copy

 These fragrances are sold for $42, and one lucky winner will get to choose their own full size mm fragrance!

You might have just solved the question of what to get your lover for Valentine’s!

Reed & Barton Girls Jewelry Boxes {Review}

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When I was a little girl, I had one of those romantic white jewelry boxes with wind-up tinkling music and a dancing ballerina inside.  It was one of my prized possessions for much of my childhood!  I don’t know where it is now, but I do remember the last time I saw it, it clearly had endured a lot of love in those years.

rb-logo

Now that I’m a mom, I can’t wait to give a future daughter a jewelry box of her own.  Reed & Barton has some absolutely gorgeous jewelry boxes for girls, all beautiful, and all an gorgeous addition to anyone’s vanity shelf.

625mr_2 211ap 664cb

These are so classic and so beautiful!  Each one looks like a work of fine craftsmanship with smooth paint and lovely lines.  I was honored to review the Bella Jewelry Box, sold for $85 at Reed & Barton.  It looks like a charming little armoire!  Well, actually, there’s nothing ‘little’ about it.  This jewelry chest is huge and SOOO much bigger than I realized, based on the online pictures of the item.  It reminds me of the grand wardrobe in Beauty & the Beast.

IMG_9093Everything about it emotes “quality”.  And “princess”.  I love it!  No corners have been cut in its construction.  The hinges are oiled, the velvet interior is expertly draped, and even magnetic parts are built into the doors for a soft and secure closure.

IMG_9095

I love that this isn’t a drop box or a ‘catch-all’.  There are compartments for rings and pendant hooks for necklaces, so that each piece has a place to go without getting tangled and lost at the bottom.  The pink jeweled knobs are just a little glam, and the hot pink flocked velvet interior is so pretty!

pink

The finished measurements are 9 5/8 x 6 1/8 x 12 1/2″ H.  That’s over a foot tall, if you can’t tell from these pictures, and the box it came in weighed around 9 pounds.

IMG_9101

Everything is out of sight, contained and safe.  I am tickled pink (!) with how much jewelry can fit inside, away from toddler fingers and settling dust.  I can see how a box with so many pull-out parts that requires cleared shelf space on both sides, above, and in front can be difficult to store, but for how many thngs you can fit inside, I think this is really a space-saver in the end.

IMG_9100

Reed & Barton is well known for their pristine silver findings, and their baby mementos are breathtaking.  Feast your eyes on their crystal, dinnerware, baby spoons, pewter frames, and of course, their lovely jewelry boxes.

Gold Toe Socks {Review}

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Socks are the gift of choice in our household this year!  My sister-in-law, who has been living with us for the past several months, has picked out almost a dozen of the most wonderful socks to give her husband this year, and it has really got me thinking about how socks can really be a great gift!  They can be fun, sophisticated, sentimental, or even just weird, and how fun that you can wear a new pair every day!  A good pair of socks keeps your feet cozy and warm, and that always makes me feel loved 🙂

Since socks are the theme of the season, I’m excited to show off a brand that is world-renowned for their quality and characteristic “gold toe”: Gold Toe Socks.

I chose to review the Varigated Stripe Knee High 2 Pair, in Brown Heather/Paprika.

I love em!  These are some high quality socks.  They are made of 72% combed cotton, which I learned about in my Textiles course in college as being a superior kind of cotton that has been brushed numerous times to align the fibers and create a soft and tight blend.

The stitching on all of the gold toe socks has been reinforced for durability, and these pairs are void of any loose threads or stitching as far as I can tell.  They have a way of being warm and strong without feeling thick and bulky.  They fit inside my smallest shoes comfortably, as well as in my largest boots, without having to wear an extra pair of socks to fill them in.

Gotta love that classic gold toe!  I can’t wait to wear these around the house during Christmas break and show them off to relatives.  These socks fit like a dream.  They are made for shoe sizes 6-9, but even my size 6.5 feet feel comfortably snug inside with extra rolling, bulging, or stretching.

This 2-pair set is sold for $8.40, which is an excellent price, considering they are knee-high and there are two pairs.
