Say ‘I Love You’ This Mother’s Day With Root Candles



If you’ve followed my blog for even a short amount of time, you’ll probably be able to tell that I am absolutely obsessed with scented candles.  Not too long ago I introduced you all to Root Candles and I was absolutely thrilled when I got the chance to try out a couple new fragrances that are perfect for Mother’s Day!


Root Candles have been around since 1869 and have been an industry-leading, family-owned company ever since.  Root Candles is now in it’s 5th generation and continue to carry on the virtues of honesty, integrity, and diligent craftsmanship that founding father Amos Ives Root instilled in his company.  Each and every Root candle is carefully handcrafted using processes mastered throughout the five generations of craftsmanship combined with the latest technology available.


Every mom out there is seeking balance, and this Geranium Lavender candle from the Seeking Balance collection is the perfect thing to help mom unwind after a long day.  This candle has the power of color and fragrance in one holistic candle for a greater sense of health and well-being.  Joining the health and well-being trend with essential oil-based fragrances and wooden wicks, Root Candles’ Seeking Balance line combines the science of aromatherapy with color therapy, allowing the stresses of your day to fade away.


Root Candles’ Pinto Noir candle has a scent that’s too amazing to pass up.  This candle is clean-burning with a long lasting scent you just can’t get enough of.  Part of the Legacy collection, it features a natural cotton (lead free) wick and is fragranced with pure, essential oils that produce a rich, lasting sensory experience.  This scent is available in a wide variety of sizes so no matter what the room size, you’ll be sure to be able to fill it with luxurious fragrance.


Last but not least, the Rose Petals candle is another beautifully scented candle that mom will adore.  This light and floral candle has top notes of sweet apple, peach, and green leaf to compliment the rich, fresh cut herbal fragrance.  The all-natural beeswax blend burns longer than other premium candles and the addition of pure essential oils in each of the Root Candles fragrances produce a rich, lasting sensory experience.

Make sure you check out all that Root Candles has to offer so you can find the one that’s just right for that special woman this Mother’s Day.

Spring Into Beauty With Sinful Colors


If you’ve followed my blog for even the shortest amount of time, I’m sure that you’ll be able to tell that I am totally nail polished obsessed!  I got the most amazing package from Sinful Colors to help me create some fun Spring nails just in time for Easter!



For the past 25 years Sinful Colors cosmetics brand has been the go-to for color enthusiasts, like myself, who rely on color as a means of self expression.  This Spring break traditions, color outside the lines, and let your freak flag fly.  Nothing is too mild or too wild 🙂 .


Sinful Colors has a new collection, Sinful Shine…with Gel Tech!!  Now you can have salon quality gel nail color without the cost or the long wait at the salon.  Quick color that’s easy to use and covers beautifully…what else could a girl ask for?


I love the different shades of green that come around every Spring and Sinful Colors has a couple beautiful ones this year!  I absolutely love these two tones mixed together with a little sparkle on top.


I’m a total girly girl and love anything and everything pink.  This was one of my favorite looks that I created and it’s so simple to do!


Nothing pairs together quite like pink and purple.  Pair them together with a fun accent nail and you’ve got a stunning manicure that turns heads.

If you’re looking for a little more challenge when doing your nails this Easter, I created a few looks that were absolute favorites among my friends and they’ve even started wearing them themselves.


Have I mentioned how much I’m loving the Sinful Shine collection?  Man these colors are stunning!  The yellow really pops and makes the cutest little chick ever.


Nothing says Easter like pastels and bunnies so I couldn’t think of a better combination for this pale purple and mint green.  I’m totally loving the accent nail!


Oh yes, I DID create an Easter egg hunt on my nails!  That metallic green made for perfect grass and looks oh-so-cute!

I really enjoy supporting products like Sinful Colors that are made in the USA, and it’s even better when that product performs as well as Sinful Colors does.  I’m a busy stay-at-home mother of three and my hands are ALWAYS busy washing, scrubbing, cleaning, or cooking something.  I typically have a hard time finding nail polish that lasts more than a few days but Sinful Colors hangs in for the long haul.

This Easter, spoil the lucky lady in your life with Sinful Colors.

Pamper Your Sweetheart With Luxe By Mr. Bubble #ValentinesDay


I absolutely LOVED relaxing in a nice warm bubble bath when I was a kid and these vintage-inspired Luxe by Mr. Bubble products have totally taken me down memory lane.  I love how soft and gentle the scents are and how lovely my skin feels after a Luxe by Mr. Bubble bath.


These super cute Bubbletini Bath Bombs totally rocked my socks off!  With the help of just a couple of these super cute bath bombs you will be able to relax and indulge in a soothing, moisturizing bath in no time.  Place 2-3 under the running water, then sit back and relax…let the day drift away and indulge in the sweet scent of these little Bubbletini Bath Bombs.  What’s even better is that when you’re all done with the bath bombs, you can use the shaker to mix up some of your favorite drinks!


Bubble The Day Away is the product that brings me to my childhood in a snap.  Back to the powdered bubble baths that I enjoyed so much, and can again thanks to Luxe by Mr. Bubble.   Nothing says pampering like a long soak in a sweetly scented Bubble The Day Away Bath.


This bubble bath promised big, soft bubbles and that was no joke!  It took very little powder to create this mountain of skin softening bubbles and I thoroughly enjoy every single minute of a Bubble The Day Away bath.

 This Valentine’s Day, pamper your sweetheart with gifts that will help her relax all year long.  Say I love you with Luxe By Mr. Bubble available at Ulta and select Target stores.

Soft, smooth lips are something every woman desires.  Second to soft lips is a great lipstick, but Chapstick has found a way to combine the best of both worlds.  The new Chapstick Total Hydration Moisture + Tint combines the great benefits of Chapstick with the added bonus, color!


Chapstick Total Hydration is a line of premium lip products that provides advanced formulas with unique ingredients for skincare for lips.  Since the skin on the lips is unlike any other, this line is designed to meet the unique needs of the lips and provide the advanced skincare that lips crave…especially during these colder winter months.
