She {Hearts} Blackflower and Company

And the winner is Laurie Hulter, congrats!

058 Tea is something that I simply can’t get enough of. I’ve been a tea enthusiast since I was a little girl. For a while, orange pekoe and green teas were all I knew until I discovered the great variety of tea flavors and tea in loose form. One company that offers a fine selection of loose teas is Blackflower and Company.

Blackflower and Company was kind enough to send me the cutest round teapot in Aqua Mist and a variety of tea samplers that I’m still making my way through. The first tea that I tried, because I’m a Chai addict, was the Signature Chai and I really enjoyed it. I didn’t add any milk to it, but I bet it tastes heavenly with some Vanilla Almond Milk. The next tea that I tried was the Cold Soother. I had been drinking it all weekend because I had been feeling stuffy, uneasy and tired, like I was coming down with something. Just inhaling the minty steam from my cup made me feel better. My nose opened up almost instantly. It’s good stuff!

She {hearts} Undercover Mama

I have been wearing cami undershirts since my first journey in breastfeeding nearly 7 years ago. I liked the coverage they provided – but I didn’t like having to stretch them down over and over throughout the day. When I saw the Undercover Mama I wanted to try it out this third time around and I was not disappointed.

They recommend ordering a size smaller so I did and am glad I took their advice. The back doesn’t fall down and the generous length stays put all day keeping me covered. I love the ease of hooking the undercover onto my nursing bra (they’ve developed an attachment loop as well for bras with a larger clasp or more padding), even more I love the ease of unhooking one clasp and I’m good to go, no more pulling and stretching.

The undercover is machine washable but you’re supposed to lie flat to dry, I’m willing to do the little extra work that takes (really just remembering to pull it out before the rest of the load makes its way to the dryer) to keep it in good form and give it life as long as possible, it’s worth it.

    She {Hearts} Goat Milk Stuff

    When choosing a soap for my children, I wanted to make sure the ingredients in it were safe. So many over the counter products I’d look at, because it was right there, local and easy to get my hand son; Yet when I’d take a closer look and was unable to even pronounce some of the words on the back of the bottles, I began to wonder… what am I really lathering my children in daily?

    A very helpful and informative website is Skin Deep. It list what exactly is in products and how safe they really are. This website is a non-profit organization and I turn to it OFTEN when looking into new things for our body, home and more.

    1Goat Milk Stuff was a company I was introduced to by another blogger and I fell in love with not only their amazing soaps, but also the story behind the store.

    Each time I buy from them it brings me joy knowing my purchase is going to help provide for such a sweet family and that the mother who created this shop had the same desires as I did in regards to my children’s soap.

    She {Hearts} Pure Anada Make Up

    IMG_6424copy copyIf you’ve been following She {Hearts} It from the start, you may have seen my review on the Pure Anada Skincare line. While I love their line of skin care, I love even more their make up.

    I have been a Pure Anada customer for over two years now. I will never ever go back to a liquid foundation after using mineral make up. There are all sorts of brands out there, many however are far from “natural” and some even contain ingredients that could be harmful to your skin. Pure Anada explains the difference between their make up and other popular mainstream brands HERE.

    I {Heart} how light the coverage is, yet if there are problem areas it can be used to conceal them as well. It goes on quick, easy & most importantly it will last you all day.

    If you are a husband or significant other looking to buy this for your mother, but unsure what colors to purchase. E-mail the company through their website. They are incredible and can help you pick the perfect match for your loved one.

    {Heart} It

    Pure Anada also offers a variety of other make up products. Such as eye shadows, lip gloss, mascara & more. The prices on these products are worth every penny. As one shadow can last me well over a year as well as the foundation refills. I purchase all my Pure Anada products from “The Pure Boutique.”

    1Pure Anada would like to giveaway a gift package with the following items in it:

    She {Hearts} Mommy Necklaces

    1When I had my 3rd son Owen – I had such a desire to nurse. After weeks of trying and my body just not producing, I had no choice but to switch to the bottle… It was a hard transition for me. One thing I cherished though was the closeness you could still get with a bottle… as long as you held your baby close, like you would when you nursed. One of Owen’s favorite things to do when I fed him was to play with my hair. At first he was gentle… but with a few months on him, he began to really tug and pull. That’s when I discovered the joy of the Mommy Necklace!

    They are built to withstand the tugs and chewing a baby brings. I love that I can wear something that looks beautiful, yet serves such a great purpose at entertaining a babies busy hands. This necklace would be the perfect gift for any mother. Even if your baby is past the tugging stage.

    Mommy Necklaces comes in a variety of styles…. Dangling Donuts, Tear Drop, Flat & more. Starting at around $22

    She {Hearts} Gussy Sews

    I fell in {love} with the fabulous Gussy Sews about a month or two ago.  A friend of mine linked to her on Facebook, and I’ve been dreaming about Gussy’s ruffles ever since!  But it’s not just her fun style that has me hooked.  It’s Gussy herself!

This May is my 1 year anniversary working solely on Gussy Sews and I’m suuuuper excited to celebrate! The year has gone by so quickly — it makes me incredibly excited to dream about where I’ll be in just another year. “

     

     

    I started reading Gussy’s blog around the same time I found her shop, and I’m all the more excited about supporting her because of it.  Gussy has worked super hard at making her dream job a successful business.  Gussy sews all of her products in her home, and each gorgeous bag comes complete with a flirty freestyle ruffle.  I just placed my first order a couple weeks ago, and I can’t wait to get my ruffles on!
