Firmoo Glasses Giveaway!


Most of you guys know that I’m a glasses girl. I love my sunnies, but because I’m always working with my computer, or reading student work I also wear glasses regularly for my close work. I have my standard black and white framed glasses, but sometimes wearing the same old pair gets boring. I look at my glasses like an accessory; most of you lens lovers probably do, too! So, a while ago I got the chance to check out Firmoo.com and they hooked me up with some awesome Burgundy glasses that seriously spiced up my wardrobe. Now, Firmoo wants to give one of my lucky readers the hookup! The winner of this giveaway will score one pair of Firmoo glasses with free shipping to US from their collection for bloggers. Glasses include the frames, standard 1.50 index single vision lenses. Upgraded lenses and add-ons will be charged for an extra fee. These babies below are the ones I chose!

Lust List: Things I Want to Buy

It’s been a good long while since I’ve had a wishlist. I’m an adult after all, I just go buy whatever I want when I want it. I’m also the financial manager of the household (or CFO as I like to call myself), so sometimes putting things on hold is the realistic (read: mature) thing to do. Pay attention, Keith…our first anniversary as married folks is coming in a few months! 😛

Ooo…ahhh…

The list begins with this fancy pants Asobu Flavor Infusing water bottle. I’m the queen of cups and water bottles. I love buying new ones. And I use them…quarterly. I feel like this one is something I’d actually use.

It’s pretty, and I can put cut fruit in it…and I’m way too impatient to make a big pitcher of water and WAIT for it to infuse.  This one comes in cool colors, too and it’s glass which appeals to me. It just seems like more of an investment. 

The idea of infused water makes me feel healthier just thinking about it. Yes, I know I’m a marketing exec’s dream. Shut it. 

 

 

 



Do you feel more organized? I do!



Do you feel more organized? I do!

I think I’m just overly excited about paper and planners as a whole. Though the Erin Condren Life Planner was NOT for me, I do love the simplicity of Kate Spade’s agendas. Her overall design is awesome, but since my Erin Condren debacle, I just haven’t allowed myself a pricey planner. A planner is something you have to use every day, and if you hate the thing…you’re not going to use it. And, if you spent an exorbitant amount of money on the thing AND you hate it, you’re going to force yourself to like it. 

This layout features a weekly spread and I can see my WHOLE week across the pages which I need when it comes to teaching and making life plans. I also dig the black and white which is classy, stylish, and matches almost everything I wear.

These stupid lacy shorts that look like underwear. I don’t even know. I just want a pair because they look so damn comfortable. 

I mean…my middle schoolers wear shorts like this. So do people my age. So do women who are much older than I am. With that being said, I’m really lusting after a pair (in black), but I’m not so sure I would actually rock them in public. At home? At a family cookout? Sure. But on the boardwalk near my house…maybe, if I’m feeling daring. 

I’ve recently taken a liking to my legs (about two summers ago I started wearing shorts), and I’m not shy about showing them off. I just need to get more daring with my patterns and cuts. Maybe in August…

 

Too many things from Etsy (this avocado necklace for example), and almost every bonus pack from Michigan Antler Art, which I’ll admit is not really for me, but for Myles! 

What are you looking to buy? What do you think I should force Keith to buy for me? I kid. Kind of…

Beach Day & John Paul Pet Tearless Shampoo Review

The overprotective furparents have finally taken Myles to the beach by our house! Seriously, it took us this long, but the result was awesome. He had such a fun time and Keith took some amazing shots of his puppy sillyness. 

 



If we could all be this happy, huh?



If we could all be this happy, huh?

After all of that, we needed to be brushed and bathed! So, I was totally stoked to find John Paul Pet Tearless Shampoo and John Paul Pet Oatmeal Conditioning Rinse. Paul Mitchell is a cruelty free company that always took care of my curls back in the day. When we bought Myles, I really wanted to make sure that we extended our cruelty free and natural life to him, too! I wanted to use something safe and effective, especially since he’s still a little bub. 



I really can't handle the cutness sometimes...



I really can’t handle the cutness sometimes…

The John Paul Pet Tearless Shampoo smells amazing and lathers up nicely. Though Keith did most of the bathing and I really only clicked and gave treats, he’ll back me up and say that the suds were amazing and soft. We were really able to wash this little dude well. The fact that it’s tearless makes me a happy furmama, too! Likewise for the John Paul Pet Oatmeal Conditioning Rinse. The oatmeal is soothing (which he needs after a long day outside), and gentle. And, can we talk about soft??? I literally wanted to sit and pet him for hours (which I do anyways.)



Sandy smiles for all!



Sandy smiles for all!

Tell me that’s not the fact of a happy pupperoni. :) He’s doing so well at our home and is adapting quickly to our daily routines and lifestyles. I also love the fact that we can promote a healthy, natural lifestyle for our dog balanced with an awesome vet, too. We might just have to take him to the beach again this weekend! Sweet, sweet summertime!

Pacifica Beauty Power of Love Eyeshadow Palette Review & Giveaway

Whoa ladies and gentlemen! It’s almost officially summer. Tomorrow marks the first day of summer which makes me think…hmm…time to celebrate! Pacifica Beauty and their Power of Love campaign, part of the Made to Matter Collection for Target is a great way to kick off the summer festivities. My Pacifica Beauty Power of Love Review & Giveaway is one of my favorite giveaways thus far. I’m all about spreading the beauty buzz, but this collection is truly awesome (yes, I know I always say that). Summertime, for me,  means minimal makeup. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy looking put together for the beach, a morning walk, or day trips which is why I’m obsessed with the Pacifica Power of Love Eyeshadow Palette. One lucky reader will score ALL of the following Pacifica Beauty swag!



The eyes have it!



The eyes have it!

Let’s talk about the Pacifica Beauty Power of Love Eyeshadow Palette first! I am in love with the colors. They all remind me of summer and are coconut infused with a mineral base for easy application. The Pacifica Beauty Power of Love Eyeshadow Palette includes 10 shades: Mysterious, Bare, Falling Star, Spirited, Devoted, Shine On, Treasure, Crush, and Soul, and Luna and is made with recyclable paper and housed in a beautiful box. Even the box is printed with soy ink and is pretty adorable! You all know how I love my packaging! 



The swatches! Feast your eyes!



The swatches! Feast your eyes!

All of the colors can be easily mixed and matched to create a cool custom look. I personally love mixing the light blue with the shimmer brown for a beachy feel. Likewise, the Pacifica Mascara (which you can read about here) and liner go on smoothly and complement each shade well. These shadows go on SUPER SMOOTHLY! I loved applying these colors as they feel soft and kind on your lids. Some mineral shadows have made my eyes watery or irritated, but these are very gentle. I also like that this palette comes complete with some nice neutrals as well as some fun colors. I’m usually very stuck in my shades of brown and grey for my eyes, but this inspired me to get a little funky for summer.  So…what’s next? Enter to win your own beachy eyes kit from Pacifica complete with the Pacifica Beauty Power of Love Eyeshadow Palette, Pacifica Natural Minerals Mascara in Supernova (dark black), and two liners in black and brown! Try all of the colors; and may the odds be ever in your favor! :)   a Rafflecopter giveaway

Meet Myles: Our Furbaby!

What a way to kick off the summer. There is one more week left of school, I have some amazing summer giveaways and reviews coming within weeks, and we have a new addition to the family: Myles! Yes, friends…we are officially fur-parents. :)



Here he is with Daddy on his first day home!

He’s a Golden Retriever and he already weighs 12.5 lbs. :) Even though we brought him home two weeks ago, he’s growing so fast and it’s making me get a wee bit emo. I’m a proud, protective fur-mama though! And, of course, he’ll be as cruelty free as possible too: he loves his Paul Mitchell Puppy Shampoo and his essential oils for flea and tick prevention. :) He loves his vet, and she’s helping us find the balance for holistic and traditional care which I LOVE! He also loves his grandparents, riding in the car, and pouncing on Keith’s feet. Welcome home, Myles!
