Spring Time Favorites

Spring Time Favorites for the Everyday Mom & Woman #springtimefavorites #trendy #beauty #activelifestyle #blogger

1// Abercrombie Asymmetrical Pullover- I love this so much I have it in two colors. I also LIVE in pullovers and am always cold. This keeps me warm all day and is also easily wearable outside even in the cold without a jacket. If I am running out quick I will just keep the pullover on and not even bother with a coat. I love the asymmetrical buttons at the neck and the color choices are so good.

Favorite Abercrombie Pullover

2// Kiehl’s Ultra Face Cream– I bought this in Las Vegas last spring when I was visitng. My skin felt especially dry in the desert air and this has been life changing ever since. I love how my skin feels after use and it is so light weight. I swear by all of the Kiehl’s products I have used but this one definitely is my top used item.

3// Sigma Makeup Brush– My sister actually introduced me to this makeup brush and I have never looked back. At first I was a little hesitant to spend almost $20 on one makeup brush but let me tell you this is WORTH EVERY PENNY. My makeup looks more even when I use this brush and it blends everything so nicely.

4// GiGi NY Crossbody Bag– I use this bag everywhere, I received it as a Christmas present last year and it is so perfect. I have the Chelsea Pebble Grain Crossbody in black with my inititals added for that extra special touch. GiGi runs amazing sales all the time so if you are on the lookout for a great spring cross body I can’t reccomend this one enough!

5// Le Tee’s Tee-Shirts– I love these witty shirts. I feel like sometimes we take ourselves a little too seriously and these shirts just cracked me up. It doesn’t hurt that the owners of this small shop are two of the sweetest girls ever. They have even given me a coupon code to share with my followers for the entire month of March. You can get a discount on any Le Tee by using code WITHLOVEMAMA15

6// My Blender– If you watch my Instagram stories you know that I am smoothie obsessed. I even shared my go to morning smoothie recipe in my Instagram highlights (so go check it out!) I asked my husband for one birthday present this year and it was a NEW blender. My old one was starting to leak and it was time for an upgrade. I am super happy with the one he chose so far, eventually I’d love to get a vitamix or a nutribullet! Check out some of my other breakfast favorites in this post.

7// Tone It Up Protein– My favorite protein ever and available at Target & Amazon! I actually have this protein on a subscription plan so it comes automatically to me once a month. I do find that I need it a little more frequently because I use it so much. I probably go through 1 1/2 to 2 a month. They also have a few new flavors that I am itching to try! You can use this protein in everything and it’s plant based and vegan!

8// Dr. Brandt Needles No More– I received this little magical worker in a sampling of products from Ulta. I was hooked after one use! This stuff is so amazing and I noticed an instant change to my under eyes. I also loved the tingly feeling that happens after using it. I have since talked to some blogger friends who also all swear by the Dr. Brandt products. I have a feeling this will not be my last review of these products!

9// Booty Resistance Bands– I love these bands! They provide such a great butt and leg workout for a low price. I ordered mine from amazon about a year ago. You can google or youtube different resistance band workouts and find hundreds. I love using these at home but I’m sure they’d be even better with gym equipment. One of my favorite moves is the side shuffle. I use the extra heavy or heavy resistance around my ankles and put my treadmill on a low speed. I do this move for 30 seconds on each side for a total of about 5 times.

10// Bip & Bop Layered Necklace– I was fortunate enough to receive this beautiful layered necklace from Bip & Bop and I have not taken off since! The quality is amazing and I love how you can personalize the item to your own preferences. I chose an “m” and a “k” in rose gold for my two little ones. The length is perfect and the necklace goes with everything. Check out all of their beautiful jewelry items here. BONUS! With code WITHLOVEMAMA you can save an extra 15% off! ❤️

These are just a few of my favorites for this spring & items I have used and loved. I am going to be posting more of these round-ups of my favorite items, so stay tuned!

Lorena Canals Rugs

Best Rugs for a Living Space with Kids
#LorenaCanals #Rugs #LivingRoom #toddlerfriendly #dockatot

I know many of you can relate to feeling the “decorating itch” in your own homes. After the Christmas decorations went down I was feeling a little tired of how our living room was looking. Enter Lorena Canals Rugs and this space was instantly transformed!

Our living room space is really a multi-functional space for our family. My kids run and play with toys in this area (we always have baskets of their toys in the area). We also use this space to watch movies or Football on Sundays and after the kids are in bed my husband and I like to tuck the toys away and light a fire in the fireplace and enjoy the quiet with a glass of wine. I love that the Lorena Canals rug can transform the room and works with both this being a place my children play and also a sophisticated spot for adults only.

Additionally, to update this room we’ve added in some new mantle decor. The space is feeling fresh for the new year but I still don’t feel like it is completely finished as we want a new couch. We’re still on the hunt for the right one!

Best Rugs for a Living Space with Kids

In the mean time one thing I am confident that fits the space perfectly is this amazing Lorena Canal rug. What initially drew me to this brand is that these rugs are machine washable (say what!?). You mean my kids can spill oatmeal and milk on it and I can just toss it in my laundry machine? Count me in! The variety of rugs they offer is truly so amazing and I had such a hard time narrowing it down. I loved so many of the rugs they have available!

In addition to these being low maintenance and easy to clean rugs, Lorena Canals also donates a portion of their proceeds to the Sakula Project and provides schooling to children in India. The rugs are made in India and designed in Spain and they are made of all natural dyes, handmade, eco, and contain no VOCs like most carpeting and rugs. Since this area of my home is a spot my children lounge or play in often, this was very important to me!

*While this rug was gifted to me all opinions are my own.*

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is already next week! Christmas and the holidays will be here before we know it and then 2018, it’s basically March 😂

I’ve teamed up with PinkBlush to share two outfit ideas with you for Thanksgiving. Now, if you celebrate like my family then you keep it low key, casual and comfortable. Many celebrate with bigger more formal gatherings. I have attended such gatherings and they can be a blast too!

Let’s start with the more dressy look

This off the shoulder top is so cute. I loved that the material was soft enough that I didn’t feel uncomfortable in it. I really think this is the perfect fall top, the colors scream fall! The bell sleeves add a little something extra and unexpected. I paired this look with dark jeans and tall dark boots. I also added a cute hat for a little twist!

The next look is a little more comfortable, possibly for a smaller family gathering

This cardigan can be worn so many ways which is one reason why I love it! You can wear it open and draped, the fringe is such a pretty detail. You also have the option to button one or both sides for a more closed off look.

You really can’t go wrong with either of these options! PinkBlush uses such great quality fabric for their products which is always key when choosing a great outfit! Hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving🍁
