New Boots = Excited for Fall!

Ugg Bailey Button Triplet in Navy Blue

This color in the triple button style can only be found in the kid's sizing. If you wear a women's size 8 like myself, you are a size 6 in the kid's. Another bonus in shopping the kid's shoes? Cheaper prices! Bailey Button Triplet in the women's department retail at $200. I got these for $160 ... plus I got a $20 Nordstrom certificate for opening a MOD card (a rewards card that debits from your checking account instead of opening a store card).
Mossimo Kena Riding Boots in Cognac found at Target for $34.99. These boots are really comfy and are going to look fabulous with fall sweaters! I wasn't a fan of riding boots last year, but I wanted a different look outside of my Uggs this season. After trying these on, I instantly made them mine!

Vote for me!!

In a house of boys, I blog for a girly outlet. I have an amazing hubby and 2 boys (ages 4 and 7), but they don't quite understand fashion and beauty like we girls do. My blog is girl time ... sharing ideas, reviewing everyday products, and chatting about things that the boys could care less about.
Being a momma and a wife is what makes my world go 'round; is all about the etcetera. I adore all the comments that are received and (in true girl fashion) get my feelings hurt when they slow down. I love seeing the number in my 'followers' box go up, I heart being contacted by companies to test out their products for review, and nothing makes me happier than to host giveaways for all my amazing fans! As I learn tips and tricks for everyday life, and find budget-friendly finds, I am so excited to share! This is why I blog. has a Top 25 Beauty Blogs for Moms list and is up for nomination! To vote is super simple, click on my picture above (or the pink link) and it will send you to the list. Just click the 'like' button next to and your vote is tallied!
Thank you so very much for all the love and support here on my blog. I have so much fun meeting new people and learning so much from you all! xoxo

I tried it ... Noxzema Triple Clean Pads

Blemishes are no match for Noxzema Triple Clean Anti-Blemish Pads! Medicated Salicylic Acid in these little scrubber pads help clear blocked pores and treat breakouts. Sweep 'em over your face after you have washed and they will clean up any excess dirt and oil that was left behind. Do NOT use around your eyes though ... this stuff will burn!! Noxzema products can be found just about anywhere. I got these at Target, $3.49 for a 90 count jar.

She didn't belong in the corner the first time around ...

NOOOOOO!!! Dirty Dancing, the 1987 classic and my most favorite movie EVAH, is going to be re-made by Lionsgate.
Are.You.Kidding.Me?!? Why? Why take such an awesome movie and try to change it up? No one will fill Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey's roles properly. Johnny and Baby can not be re-made. Period.
That is all.

Starting the week off right ... with a giveaway!!

It's Monday, and since I missed out on blogging last week (life can be so.crazy.busy) I wanna kick off this week with a giveaway!!
So, y'all know of my love affair with Scentsy, right? For those of you who are already familiar with Scentsy, you know how FABULOUS these warmers and scents are. For those not quite aware yet (its okay, we forgive you), Scentsy is a safe way to make your home smell amazing with decor inspired warmers that melt fragrant waxes. The scents are incredible ... my favorites include French Lavender (if you want your room to smell like a spa, get this one!), Guava Nectar (a sweet scent that reminds me of summer, but retired earlier this year - SO sad!!) and Satin Sheets (so very sexy and clean, a fave amongst many!). These warmers are safe to have around pets and children ... they heat up with a light bulb! No flames to worry about ... and I cannot express enough how much these scents fill your entire home! One full size warmer placed in a central room (like your kitchen) will linger the scent of your choice throughout your surrounding rooms! Scentsy also has plug-in warmers to place in your bathrooms or smaller rooms!

And speaking of the plug-ins ... I am giving away the Sand Dollar plug-in and 3 Scentsy bars in Cinnamon Bear (hello Fall season!), Lucky In Love (like VS Love Spell? this scent is similar) and last month's special, Happy Birthday (cupcakes and frosting ... mmmm!!) to one lucky winner!! The Sand Dollar plug-in is now retired, but the cream colored warmer will look great in any home!

Excited?? There are 3 easy ways to enter to win ... the giveaway will end on Sunday the 14th and the winner will be announced on Monday morning! xoxo
