RUFFLE AROUND DRESS

 

I love a colorful floral print but being such a neutral lover this Ruffle Around Dress from Sweetest Stitch immediatley caught my eye. The cream color with gray flowers are a perfect combination for anyone weary of a bright floral print. The high neck is so cute and the ruffles around the neckline adds to the femininity of the dress. My lace up wedges are on sale for just under $30 and still available in lots of sizes!

Ya’ll know how much I love Sweetest Stitch and they have offered to give one of my lucky readers a $25 gift certificate to spend at www.sweeteststitch.com! I’m loving their shoe collection, so I suggest checking it out!

Winner will be announced Friday August 18th!

How was everyone’s fourth?! The fourth of July is one of my absolute favorite holidays! Although, ever since having Porter I feel like every holiday is a big deal to me! I think it’s that maternal urge to make your own family traditions, something that you can look back on, and say, ahhh those were special times!

I have been a little MIA lately, honestly just trying to soak in family time, working around the house, reading, and enjoying the sun! Our next project is to landscape the backyard, I can’t wait!! We drove to Bend last week to visit family, the drive was beautiful, and I really got to appreciate how nice of a town Bend is. The last time I was there it was for my bachlorette party and I don’t really remember too much! Haha.

This is my first one shoulder top purchase ever! I’ve never liked the one shoulder trend because it reminds me of a toga, (Toga! Toga! Toga!) So I never even tried it. When I saw this white eyelet one I didn’t even hesitate! It’s so simple and comfortable and I’m a sucker for anything eyelet! Also, these jeans are the best and have been completely restocked!

This embroidered white top from the Sweetest Stitch is such a springtime staple! I’m always looking for a amped up white tee that’s easy and cute, but not too casual, and this one is everything! Embroidery is such a hot trend this year but I know it can be a little intimidating. Trying pieces with thick colorful stitch work is hit or miss, so a top that’s neutral like this one is great. I just saw this embroidered dress on their site… So cute!! Perfect for summer!

I haven’t even posted since we got back from California! We had such a great time! I’m missing my family so much already! Porter played so hard with all his cousins. One night we were there he fell asleep at 5:30 and slept till 7:00 the next day!!! I was so nervous he would wake up at midnight, ready to party, but thank God he slept through the night! My hometown is known for it’s rodeo and he was so excited to go, but he only lasted about 2o minutes, lol. Thankfully we had a plan for my parents to pick him up in case that happened.

I just started reading The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. I’m not very far but it’s so good already! I can already tell it’s gonna be a forever favorite!

T3 MICRO VOLUMIZING HOT ROLLERS LUXE REVIEW

I have such a treat for you today! We are going to be talking about how to get great volume and waves at home without damaging your hair! The best part… it is so easy. T3 Micro was kind enough to send me these Volumizing hot rollers to review for all of you wonderful readers!

I have to admit I was skeptical about the rollers when T3 Micro made the offer. I haven’t used hot rollers since I was a kid and I wasn’t convinced they would give me the volume I’m constantly trying to achieve. I have a daily struggle with trying to give this heavy mane volume!

I’ve tried too many products, I continuously tease it, use tons of different brushes, but it always falls down within and an hour! Guys, I cannot convey how excited I was when I took these rollers out! Do you see this volume?!? Even my curls look effortless! No other product has come close to satisfying my volume needs like this one has!

One of my biggest complaints about other hot rollers is that my hair slips off really easy which makes wrapping it frustrating. These T3 rollers have a velvet material around them, so wrapping my hair was a breeze!

T3 also sent me their Luxe 2i Hair Dryer! Holy Moses is thing beautiful! Besides it’s ridiculously good looks, this thing works like a dream! It’s negative ions neutralize static, retain moisture, and boosts shine. Since I’ve been in California I’ve been letting my grandma use it (she’s a cosmetologist) and she said, “It’s like a spa experience!” Ha ha ha! We both love how lightweight and quiet it is too!

If you have trouble achieving volume like do (did!) then I seriously recommend checking out T3’s Volumizing Hot Rollers!
