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!

She {hearts} JANE

One thing I think most of us moms enjoy doing, is shopping online. At least I do. While I am the type to go out and thrift for almost everything I buy… there are times I do like to purchase things new… and enjoy finding fun places to shop without having to leave the house. After all, as a mom of 4, my “free time” to shop as I please is far and few these days.

I was introduced to Jane.com way before Christmas! They were sweet to gift me with a few tops and have been so patient in waiting for my review on their company. Which honestly may have worked out in their favor… because as each month passed since I was first introduced to them, the more I grow to like their website.

It is filled with such awesome deals and fun products. With such variety. You can log on and find outfits for you but also for your children. You can find great decor items or gift items for friends and family. Practical pieces as well, such as USB readers, cell phone cases and recipe cards.

Check out this cute top they had listed this week.

As well as this adorable chevron diaper bag for under $15.00. I thought this bag would make a great nursery bag for a baby girl or boy! Looks really easy to monogram too, for an even more personal touch.

I love the yellow top they sent me. Light weight and great for summer or team with a skinny jean and layers in the fall.

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} Shop Miss A

missa

I tend to be a youtube stalker on occasion… watching fun tutorial’s online and following a select few off and on. One day I logged in and saw a video up by one of the bargain fashion guru’s, who was showcasing a company called Miss A. It immediately got my attention because she started her video by saying everything on their shop cost a $1.

ED9A6137So! I of course logged onto the Miss A website and began browsing.

I spent way to much time :) – they sucked me in and I got to clicking through their entire site and thought their selection was great and had to showcase them.

I got to try out 30 of their items and it sure was fun. A box full of goodies just for me :) and possibly 1 or 2 for my boys. (yes they have some kid stuff too).

Some of my favorite item’s that I tried were their lip balms, both very simple and so me. Another favorite was their nail polish remove pads! They worked better than any other nail polish remove I have ever used. What was nice about them as well is that they didn’t involve a big bottle of liquid or cotton balls. Everything came in a nice compact little container. I highly recommend those. Also their owl jewelry, as well as their numerous number of small zip tote bags. Their hair clips are fantastic too! I stocked up on bobby pins like crazy.

You could easily stock up on just the variety of bags they had for fun Christmas gifts to give out at a school function for your daughter.

Miss A not only carriers great deals on ELF make up brushes and other cosmetics, they also carry a wide variety of jewelry, sun glasses, hair accessories and many more misc. items. Perfect place to shop, avoid crowds this Christmas and stock up on great smaller items and stocking stuffers!

Oh and did I mention shipping is only $3.95! No matter how big your order.

She {hearts} Splendies

logoOne thing that I normally spend money on is high quality underwear. You wear them all day long so you want to be comfortable. I was sent three pairs of organic undies to try out. They were all silky smooth and really adorable! I was surprised the shipping was so quick. I was excited to open up the package and see which ones I received. All three pairs did fit me. My favorites were both of the polka dots ones. Very cute.

As those of you who are moms know, babies LOVE to play with whatever jewelry you happen to be wearing!  I started looking for a great teething necklace since my 18-month-old is in the throws of teething and I have a new baby on the way.
