Make St. Louis Your Vacation Spot this Summer

Summer travel season will soon be upon us and if you’re like me you love the thought of leaving the confines of your state but you hate the hassle of packing.  I always seem to pack way too much because I’m never sure of just what I need to wear. I’m hoping that my capsule wardrobe will help with this a bit. While I suck at packing my clothes I have packing makeup down to a science!  We don’t have any definite vacation plans just yet, but my Husband and I watch a lot of the food network, and we’ve… View Post

Make this Peach Berry Refresher with Alize Peach

 This post was sponsored on behalf of Alizé Peach. All opinions stated are my own. I love mixing up great tasting cocktails to enjoy alone or with friends and family. Today I’m sharing with you a drink that you may find yourself sipping on this coming summer. The Peach Berry Refresher boldly encompasses the one thing we love most about summer, the fresh fruit! For this cocktail, I used Alize Peach, a succulent infusion of ripe, luscious peaches delicately blended with premium French Vodka. Alize Peach is a new flavor in the Alize brand. Last year I shared with you the Jalapeno… View Post

Check out what the Tria Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser does for a Women in her Thirties.

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Pretty in My Pocket and Tria. Thank you for allowing me to share with you the brands I love. I think my 30’s have been the absolute best years of my life. Granted I’m only two years in, but it’s been one amazing thing after another. Thirty is when I realized I didn’t have it all figured out, and I was finally able to admit that I was completely okay with that. My finances are amazing (besides me paying off a mountain of student loans), I’m back down to a healthy weight,… View Post

Milani Cosmetics Mattallics Lip Créme Review and Swatches on Medium Brown Skin

I’ve slowly been developing this love for Liquid lipsticks. When the first came on the scene I couldn’t get down with some of the formulas. They’d either be too dry or just a splotchy mess. Some of the more popular ones weren’t readily available on the ground. On a recent trip to one of my local Sephoras ( I have three within reasonable driving distance) I picked up a liquid lipstick that I absolutely fell in love with. I’ll be sharing deets on that one a little bit later. This particular post is going to be all about the limited… View Post

The Skin Care Product You Need to Try Before Having Fun in the Sun.

This post is created as part of a Sponsored Series by ROC SkinCare and SocialStars. All opinions are my own. #womenwhoroc The warm summer months are right around the corner for many that means it’s vacation time! I can’t believe time is going by so fast. I honestly feel like If I blink hard enough it will be the Fourth of July! I have a love-hate relationship with Summer. While I hate the heat and humidity I love being able to wear cute maxi dresses and skirts and all the fun colors that go along with it the warmer temperatures. Just last… View Post
