She {hearts} Root

header

I try to be very careful about what I put in my body.  Sometimes, I am not so careful about what I use on the surface of my skin.  I started doing my research on foundations and make-up that are fairly popular.  I could not believe all the stuff that they put in the products.  That is when my search for a “healthy” foundation began.  I found Root through a friend who raved about the mineral foundation.  I did my research and loved every detail about the product… including the price!

root kitRoot is a new company that offers mineral make-up that is actually good for our skin.  There are absolutely NO fillers and chemicals- just four simple ingredients!  I was so happy to try Root’s pearl mineral foundation, bronzer, and setting silk.  I was blown away by the texture of the minerals.  They were so fine and literally glided on my face.  The setting silk felt just like… silk!

I tried three different foundations (shade 1, 3, and 6) and landed on the formula 3 foundation along with the light bronzer.  I wore the product every day for a week and felt like it held up all day long, too.  There were a couple of days that I threw on a quick layer of the setting silk just to make me feel better, but honestly, I probably didn’t need it.  I am just so used to having to re-apply my powder, that it was habit for me to do so.  I do want to add that I have quite a bit of redness and scarring from acne on my chin and cheeks, so for a powder foundation to conceal all that is pretty good (these are raw images- no editing was done)!

I am so happy to share such a great product with our readers.  I feel like the product, coupled with the amazing price, is hard to beat!

She {hearts} Sage & Harper

Sage & Harper

I have been searching high and low for a handbag that fits my personality and my needs.  I have so many “wants” when it comes to the perfect handbag, that it is difficult to find one to fit the bill.  When I spotted a Sage & Harper handbag, I knew I was done looking for the perfect handbag.  Sage & Harper handbags are the perfect size, the perfect “cross-body” length, and have style for days.

Each bag is carefully crafted, right down to the pockets, stitching, and sweet details.  One of my favorite features is the size.  It is big enough for me to carry all my necessities for the kids, yet isn’t so big that I feel like a bag-lady.  The interior has 5 pockets- one which fits my cell phone like a glove- and three exterior pockets.  They help to keep my purse organized and everything in its right place.

I can’t say enough about the beautiful details in each bag.  The fabric, the craftsmanship, the appliques on the flaps- perfection!  Finally, a bag that meshes beauty and style with function!

You know those shops that you simply fall in love with the moment you lay your eyes on them?  Well, that company is Quail Lane Co. I could drool over their adorable baby moccasins all day long!  I was so excited to try some of their moccs for Guinnyth and see if they were as functional as they were cute.  The answer… Yes, they are perfect for little feet!

Quail Lane Co. is run by two mommas who have created a product that is unique and affordable.  The moccs are handmade and it is easy to see they are fabulous quality.  I love the colors and styles Quail Lane offers its customers.  You have bows, fringe, bold colors, neutrals, metallics… all made with care and consideration.  I am so glad that Guinnyth will have these “Mermaid” moccs to waddle around in for the next year.

she {hearts} designs by romy

Have you ever been out and about with your little ones and a lovely gust of wind comes and knocks the blanket off of your infant?  You then proceed to try and catch the blanket without letting go of your big kids’ hands.  By the time you get to the door of the store you were wanting to peruse (probably Target, in my case), you have broken a sweat and your child’s blanket is now dirty and damp from the parking lot.  It is a delightful start to your relaxed shopping experience.

designs by romy collage

Designs by Romy is a sweet etsy shop that offers a solution to the above stated problem.  Romy’s carseat swaddles are soft, warm, and unable to be blown or kicked off.  I used one of Designs by Romy’s swaddles with my third child and hope to use one with my last baby due in this July.  Even when it was during the warm months, I loved that there was a nice layer to keep my baby cozy when we were in cold stores or restaurants. These blankets can even transition into a regular carseat and wrap up around an older baby’s arms and chest.  Since it isn’t safe to have a child in a five-point carseat harness with a coat on, I love that I can leave this blanket in the carseat and have something to wrap her up in without having to take her coat on and off.

Designs by Romy offers styles for boys, girls, and unisex for those who are waiting until the big day to find out what their little one is!!!  Romy uses a combination of fleece and flannel that makes this blanket perfect for warm and cold temperatures.  It is the perfect gift for a new momma.  I used my swaddle blanket for over a year with my 18 month old.  I can’t wait to pick a different style to use with our new baby coming this summer!

she {hearts} the mason bar company

Do you love mixing your own iced coffees at home?  Do you love taking your refreshing lemon water on-the-go?  This past summer, I began to mix my own iced coffees to enjoy at home.  I would pour my coffee into a mason jar and head out to run errands with my crew.  One major problem I had was that my squatty mason jar didn’t fit well in my cup holder.  Coffee would slosh around and then I would have a mess on my hands, literally.  I already shared my favorite coffee concentrate with everyone, but now I want to share my favorite way to drink my water and coffee.

IMG_1079The Mason Bar Co. is a great, eco-friendly company based out of California that offers tumblers with BPA free lids and straws!  I have been in the process of slowly tossing my plastic containers and cups, and adding in BPA free glass containers and cups.  The Mason Bar Company’s tumblers are a great way to move toward a more green, eco-conscious way of drinking our liquids.  They have a variety of sizes (sizes that actually fit in the cup holders in your car!!!) and multiple colors of straws.  I love that each member of my family has their own tumbler and their own straw so we don’t swap germs.

she {hearts} ramble & roost

Ramble & Roost is a handmade, fine-art shop that I stumbled upon while searching for a unique piece to top off our schoolroom.  We have a map wall in our room and I wanted to continue the rustic, world theme with the entire room.  You can imagine how excited I was when I saw the string art in Ramble & Roost.  I was lucky enough to receive a custom piece of string art representing my home state on pieces of reclaimed wood.  The owner, Lauren, even put a sweet heart over a location that is special to me.

The great thing about Ramble & Roost is the option to totally customize your piece.  Maybe you have a wedding coming up and want a one-of-a-kind gift for the special couple… Ramble and Roost can make a custom piece with the couples’ initials!  Maybe you have a baby shower… Ramble and Roost can create a piece to hang in the baby’s room.  The possibilities are endless!
