Outfit of the Day: Maxi & Denim

I am loving the LuLaRoe Maxi Skirt. Not only can you wear it as a strapless dress, but as a skirt you can do so many things.   I have seen people knot it at the bottom which I was going to try but I figured I'd just wear it loose since I already knotted the Classic T I'm wearing.

And yes, LuLaRoe has stuff OTHER THAN LEGGINGS!   Including adorable skirts and dresses which is what I'm really in love with.  Then I added a denim jacket to help give it a layered look but I also love the fact that it's cute even if I take it off!

5 Tips for Dog Owners in May

This site has affiliate links and sponsored content. Read my Disclosure Policy.

 It's Spring and that means many many MANY things for your little pooch.   So I wanted to put together a brief blog post with some Spring tips!  From ticks to bad breath... let's get it started!

1. Treat Your Dog for Fleas and Ticks
This is a very very very important thing year round but espeically during the nicer months where your dog is outside more.   Whether it's a flea and tick treatment, a collar, or putting your dog in a bubble, I don't care - just make sure you are safeguarding your pooch!

2. Allergies
Allergies are a very real thing even for dogs.   Mine have been sneezing more after they hang out on the screened in porch.  So I make sure I'm vacuuming very often, keeping the house dust free, and on days when the pollen count is super high, I make sure to keep Rocky inside as much as possible since he has a heart issue.

3. Oral Hygiene
So this is the perfect time of year to keep your pup's oral hygiene in tip top shape because there's going to be a lot of panting with the warmer weather.   I always advise dog owners to brush their dog's teeth at least once a week and in between, make sure you supply them with a fun treat like Greenies from Chewy. They are the perfect size for a variety of dogs and they not only keep dogs occupied but they   help fight plaque and tartar build up and they freshen breath.  It's also a great way to maintain healthier teeth and gums.   They come in a lovely mint flavor and are made from soluble natural ingredients.

4. Water
Make sure your pooch is always provided fresh drinking wter especially on hot days or when coming in from playing in the yard.   Dehydration is a serious thing for both people and pets.

5. Vaccines
If you're one of those people that brings your dog to the park a lot, make sure they are up to date on the vaccines and they are properly registered with their tags.   Anytime dogs are around other dogs, there's the potential for a transfer of germs, fleas, ticks, and more.

What's your favorite tip for dog owners this month?

Outfit of the Day: Floral Skirt

So I tried a new piece from the LuLaRoe line and it's the Lucy skirt and OMG am I ever in love.  It's got two layers to it - the bottom one being a silky black material, and then the top is a lace overlay with a print.

I paired it with a purple Classic T and knotted it towards the bottom.  This skirt is amazing for warm weather because it's flowy and lets the breeze in.  I seriously need 100 more of these! Have you tried any of the LuLaRoe skirts yet?

How To Have An EPIC Summer Day

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, INC. and The Coca-Cola Company, all opinions are mine alone.  #CollectiveBias #BestSummerMemories

I know some people think that whenever you want to have an epic day you have to do a ton of planning but trust me when I say that I'm an expert at on-the-go fun!  One of the easiest ways to make the most of your summer is to make memories with your friends.  You can still have an epic day with minimal planning.  And you can get pretty much all you need at one place.   So today I'm going to share my secret on how to have a totally epic summer day. I'm going to cover everything you need to  make your summer memorable.   

Obviously you need the right supplies so take my lead and just know that if you don't already have all these supplies you can always pick them up at your local CVS store like I did.  

Obviously it's much easier to enjoy a sunny summer day with friends when you don't have to squint to see each other.   A cute pair of sunglasses is an absolute MUST.  Not only are they functional but they are fashionable. 

 Sunscreen is a must especially if you'll be outdoors in the sun for an extended period of time.  A sunburn will just cut your fun short so make sure you're covered, literally!  CVS has a great supply to choose from. 

Whether it's a snack attack while you're driving to your destination or you just need some snacks for when you arrive, stock up at your local CVS and grab some munchies for on-the-go noshing.   I always keep some pretzels handy for my friends and myself because it's easy to eat and refuel.  

A cute towel is a must for any summer picnic, lounging poolside, or going to the beach so make sure you are prepared.   

You can't have fun without your friends so make sure you get a good group of people together. Let them know the plans and what they should bring along. 

Your go-to outfit for summer fun should be comfortable and cute.   Consider the weather and the location.  If you are going on a hike you don't want to wear shoes that are difficult to walk in.  If you are going to be lounging in the park or by a pool, flip flops are completely appropriate. 

|Sharing an Ice Cold Coca-Cola™| 
Since you have everything you need with the list above, you can put some of them all together like friends and Coca-Cola.   Ice Cold Coca-Cola is so refreshing during the hottest moments of Summer and this year they include first AND last names on their bottles!   

It's always fun for everyone to bring something to a get together that they can share with others.   

There are 1,000 plus names available on multiple Coca-Cola brands and packages which means you should be able to find a bottle to share with at least one of your friends.   CVS is the perfect place to pick up a bottle for on-the-go moments like heading off to the beach or going to a concert or festival with your friends.  

Make sure you check the soda aisle of your local CVS AND if you use your CVS ExtraCare card you can get special CVS pricing at 2 for $3.  So you can share with a friend AND you can save money. 

And if you or your friends want more options, consider Coca-Cola™ to quench your thirst as you enjoy a warm summer day.  

Check out these fun ideas for an epic summer day! What will you be doing with your friends to make more memories?

The Easy Way to Younger-Looking Skin

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but for many of us, our skin is usually something that has to be beautiful regardless. Young-looking skin is miles more vibrant, soft and smooth than ragged and tired skin that hasn’t be cared for properly. Although looking young is difficult as you get older, it doesn’t mean you should neglect your duties of embracing your beauty. So if you want younger-looking skin without having to stress over too many things, here are a couple of fantastic tips to help you along.

Wash Your Face Before Bed

In addition to brushing your teeth, you also need to make sure that your face is nice and clean right before bed. You want to scrub off the top layer of dirt and grime and you want to ensure that your skin is nice and clean before you head to bed. This is so that your pores don’t clog overnight and cause breakouts when you wake up. Don’t go to bed with an oily face, refresh your skin by giving it a clean before you sleep.

Skincare Routines

Anyone who’s serious about skincare needs to have a routine. However, something that they might not know is that you need to change your skincare routine every couple of months. The first reason is because you need to adapt your products to the season. And secondly, it’s because skin changes over time and old products may not work anymore. There are some products such as the OZNaturals hyaluronic acid serum that will stay relevant throughout all seasons, but creams need to be changed whenever the seasons do to ensure your skin gets the care it needs.

Reduce Stress

Stress can actually cause inflammations in the skin that break down collagen, the protein in the body that causes your skin to look firm. If you’re constantly under stressful situations, then it might be time to take a break, go on holiday or simply relax for a while before you return to work. To help with stress, make sure you’re getting plenty of sleep each night and each antioxidant-rich foods like oranges and berries. Meditation and deep breaths can also help greatly when you’re stressed out.

Remember to Exercise

Not only does exercise contribute to a healthier and more toned body, but it also helps with your skin. Studies have shown that those who exercise on a regular basis have better collagen production in their skin. This is because exercise exposes your body to oxygen and nutrients that promote the formation of collagen, and this keeps your skin well-toned and glowing. This is why many models workout—it’s not just for their body, but also their skin!

Watch Your Diet

Diets are also incredibly important to great looking skin. In just a few short weeks, a healthy diet could give your skin a rich glow and make it silky smooth. Try eating lots of foods with antioxidant properties, healthy fats such as from fish, and vitamin A which helps to fight the signs of ageing and wrinkles.
