See Kai Run: Adorable Shoes for Adorable Feet

Posted by on Mar 25, 2016

I really do need two closets. Well scratch that. I need one really BIG closet that I can fit all my clothes on one side of it and…all my SHOES on the other. SIGH. I love shoes. I love the way they fit, make me feel and look. Heels, flats, but especially being a mom on the go- athletic ones. When I am on the go, my kids are trailing right behind me. So of course it’s important they have stylish shoes of their own…but are being fashion forward while doing so. See Kai Run gave me all that and more…and the mom is from Seattle!! Good things come from Seattle!!

See Kai Run has bright colors and sharp details make this high top stand out. This sneaker features a padded collar and tongue for comfort and support, and a removable insole to keep active feet fresh.

  • Flexible rubber sole is sturdy enough for outdoor play
  • Rubber toe cap increase durability and protection
  • Wide opening and back pull loop make on/off easy
  • Adjustable hook-and-loop closure and faux laces ensure fit
  • Our footwear has been awarded the American Podiatric Medical Associations prestigious Seal of Acceptance.

I was given a pair of See Kai Run for each of my kids feet. So I was able to see both the boys and girls styles. CUTE. CUTE. CUTE!! I absolutely love that I am doing the best for my littles growing feet while all they have to do is look stylin. They are easy for all my “feets” to run around in, jump in, play in and they are really durable. They will definitely hold up to the shenanigans that my kids will put them through. Another plus? I REALLY like See Kai Run and the bright colors they use. I often put my kids in bright colors while were out- just so I can spot them easily if they decide to wander an inch or two away from me. The shoes are a great way to spot them in a crowd! Just look down at the feet!

Yep. I need a BIG closet. I need the room for THEIR shoes as well. And don’t think that See Kai Run only has athletic shoes, go to www.seekairun.com and see for yourself all they have to offer. You will start to fill not only your “wagon”, but that BIG closet? It will be filled in NO time.



Sinful Colors Kylie Jenner Collection

Posted by on Mar 21, 2016

Nail Polish

I had a roommate while I was in college who was from Texas. She was everything Southern and MORE. She did her hair in curlers every morning, would start her AM with a Diet Mountain Dew and she was one of the coolest people I know. I remember however, one day when I ALMOST lost her respect…why? She saw my unpainted toenails. My Southern friend let me know that polish was her LIFE. She said with the straightest face ever that she could not remember a time when her nails were NOT painted…yes. Since birth.

I immediately thought of her when I had the chance to check out Sinful Colors Kylie Jenner Nail Polish and had to wonder if she had tried them out. It would have made my old roommate proud!

Kylie Jenner Sinful Colors

Sinful Colors Polish

For 25 years, SinfulColors® bold shades, innovative formulas, and affordable price has made it a go-to nail polish brand for color enthusiasts. SinfulColors® is a leading brand in the U.S. mass-market, and has become synonymous with attainable beauty and artistic self-expression.

Sinful Colors

These days my roomies are my two gorgeous girls. So I grabbed them (and I grabbed a Mountain Dew- NON diet…gross) and we went to town painting our nails! The polish is POSH! SinfulColors® has twenty luxurious shades of exquisite jewel tones offset by decadent neutrals and precious metals, as well as a top coat. We each picked our fave and had a mani pedi party. It was a very fun night. The polish colors are BOLD which I love, non-sticky, and they dried very quickly. This is always a plus for me because it is hard enough to get my girls to hold still for a few seconds, let alone a few minutes to polish our nails. The topcoat ensures that your newly painted nails will stay posh for a long time. It’s affordable and a great go to when you want to try something a bit bolder on your nails, but cannot afford to spend your entire allowance on polish. Now would be a PERFECT time to see my Southern roommate again, and show her how I turned a little Southern too.

Spring is Coming: Get Ready With Zubels

Posted by on Mar 18, 2016

Zubels

Here in Utah, we have seasons…but the entrance of Spring is always a toss-up. We can have beautiful weather one day and then have full on SNOW the next. However, while walking to my car the other day, I SAW IT. My tulips have begun to emerge from the dirt and will soon be blooming. I cannot wait. When tulips tell me spring is coming, I get excited. Not only for the warmer temps, but the SPRING DRESSES!!

Easter, May Day, or just because, my girls LOVE To have an excuse for a new dress. And as their mom, I love an excuse to buy them one. However. My girls are NOT the cleanest…nope. So when I get dresses for casual parties or everyday wear- I look to ZUBELS.

  • Zubels are 100% cotton (some organic) hand knit toys, hats and sweaters which are sure
    to be cherished and loved by children of all ages.
  • Zubels are each hand knit with 100% super soft organic cotton yarns.
  • Zubels uses eco-friendly low-impact dyes and has minimal packaging to reduce environmental waste. Each one is also hand stuffed to make them huggable and loveable.
  • Their subtle textures, vibrant colors and hand embroidered details spark imaginary play. Every doll has a distinct personality just like every child!

Zubels dresses

These are just two of the dresses that Zubels has and my girl loves them! She can run, jump and play and be comfortable while doing so. As a mom, I really love the soft material, I am, after all, a MATERIAL girl. I also love that they are eco-friendly. And because I know they will be “well loved” the quality Zubels gives their clothes is extraordinary. Easy to wash and wear, the colors have not faded and she will have the opportunity to wear over and over again.

Go check out www.zubels.com and find the fit, style and SPRING dress for your little tulip. Spring IS coming…are you fashion ready?

Right now you can get the Sela Hair Straightening Steam Brush for 42% off! That drops the price from $120 to just $69.99 and this thing rocks.

I have always had curly hair. But not the pretty ringlet curls kind of curly. More like the crazy, frizzy, not really curly, but not really straight kind of curly. The in between? Yeah. Not fun. So what’s a girl to do? Straighten it. Every. Single Day.

I’ve told you about some of my favorite flat irons before, but when I heard about the hair straightening steam brush I knew I needed to try it. And wowza! I’m so glad I did! Quite simply, this thing rocks! I dried my hair most of the way (it was a little damp) and then plugged this bad boy in. The instructions are pretty easy to follow. And no buttons to push while in use. Just clamp the brush on your hair and it goes to work. I absolutely LOVE the way it makes my hair look.  And I feel like my hair is healthier as well. I’ll be posting pics soon, but in the meantime you should check it out for yourself!

It is NEVER Too Late to Start Taking Care of Your Skin With derma e at Target

Posted by on Jan 14, 2016

noticethelotus

A couple months ago I turned 36. That means I am now in my late thirties. Not early, not mid, but late. I was going to let the day just come and go, and make it as unnoticeable as I possibly could. However, my bestie Charity had something different in mind. I was given a gift with an adorable poem each day for the 7 days leading up to “the big day”.

One thing I did notice – my skin is definitely NOT like it was when I was 20.

Fine lines. Crows feet. Worry tracks. Laugh lines. You can call them what you want, but to a women it means only one thing really. AGING.  I for one am not going to let my age get the best of me, but that does not mean I can neglect my skin! Age the way you want- gracefully, and with the least amount of effort. That is what I want anyway! So I gave derma e a try. I must admit I am a bit behind the “taking care of your skin” curve and should have been doing this 20 years ago. However.  You too can always start. It is NEVER too late to start taking care of your skin.

derma e

I love that its not greasy. It does not feel like another layer of film on my skin. It absorbs quickly and feels smooth.

And I especially love that it’s easy. I just added the derma e night cream and firming eye lift to my nightly regimen and I was quickly able to remember each night to apply. Take that fine lines! I may still have my fine lines. But in my mind they can be just that. Fine. Fine to anyone-especially me.

NuMe Megastar Flat Iron: The New BFF For Your Hair + Coupon Codes!

Posted by on Jan 12, 2016

NuMe coupon code

I was a curly haired baby. A curly haired toddler. A curly haired adult. We’re talking ringlets on my head curls. My mom and dad adored it. I guess I didn’t mind as a kid, but man. When I go to those pre-teen years. WOW. Let me tell you. Until I discovered mousse, it was somewhat of a POUFFY situation. Then as a high schooler I discovered something even MORE awesome…The flat iron. I could completely change my look with a little heat and effort? Say wha? Mind blown! So I present to you the NuMe Megastar hairstraightener, flatiron.

A leader in cutting-edge styling tools, NuMe has designed a flat iron with an infrared heat strip built into its tourmaline-infused ceramic coated plates. The strip comes into direct contact with hair, emitting 1000% more negative ions for best-in-class shine and sleekness without damage or dryness. Megastar delivers ionic pin-straight tresses or tousled waves with an incomparable shine and lasting hold.

megastarThere are SO many things to LOVE about this flatiron. First off, can we talk about the color? PINK! Love. But if pink is not your color, it also comes in Purple, teal blue and black! It was also rated best in beauty tools, so there’s that! And there is definitely MY opinion to back it up. I don’t feel like my hair is getting FRIED when I use it. It heats up quickly, it goes right through my hair without catching or pulling on strands. So in no time at all my hair comes out soft, manageable and B E A-Utiful if I do say so myself.

This a MUST to have in your hair kit. If you want to NOT damage your hair, but get the silky smooth and straight look, this is the flat iron for you. It is definitely the flat iron for this naturally curled hair gal. Give NuMe a try. She will definitely be a new BFF for your hair.
