  • Jurlique Purely Bright Mist

    I usually steer away from testing out new skincare products because my skin is so sensitive, but I received a sample of Jurlique Purely Bright Mist and was very intrigued! I have been using it for the past 2 weeks before I put my moisturizer on in the morning and am loving how it makes my skin feel and look. I can tell it helps to give my moisturizer an extra boost and my skin looks, and feels, more hydrated after using it. With the winter we've been having here in Michigan, I need all the moisture boost I can get! 

    Jurlique's Purely Bright Mist contains "VitaBrightKX and features Kakadu Plum, the world's richest natural fruit source of Vitamin C, and a potent blend of botanicals including Daisy to help hydrate and soften skin for a radiant glow. 

    I use about 2 sprays on my face and 2 on my neck and chest when I get out to he shower, wait for it to soak in, and then apply my moisturizer. The floral scent is really nice for a morning pick up me up!

    Jurlique is an Australian brand that uses natural ingredients, along with natural innovations, to create their products. This is the first product I've tried from this brand and am so happy I did. I'll definitely be trying more of their products. You can buy Jurlique Purely Bright Mist on their site,

    Clean Eating with KIND Granola

    clean eating yogurt parfaitAs much as I love making homemade clean eating granola and snacks for travel, I'm not superwoman. I only have so many hours in the weekend that allow me to cook and bake from scratch, and I usually prioritize cooking our main meals over desserts and snacks.

    When I don't have time to create healthy snacks on my own, I turn to KIND Healthy Snacks. I have been a huge fan of KIND bars for a long time now. I always have one packed in my laptop bag and suitcase for hunger emergencies. My favorite is the Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate + Protein bar. These all natural bars are a life saver! One can hold me over between meals and I don't have to feel guilty over it tasting so good.

    KIND also makes granola. Recently I was lucky enough to receive some samples of their granola clusters. My favorite flavor was the Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters. Absolutely delicious! If you like peanut butter, you'll love this granola.

    This flavor is protein packed, with a blend of peanuts and whole grains. One serving contains 16kg of whole grains!

    I put a half a cup full in a baggie for my travels and made yogurt parfaits one night with my hubby. Here's my Clean Eating Yogurt Parfait recipe:

    Start with 6 oz. of Greek yogurt (I used Fage), and add toppings! My mix of toppings include:
     - KIND Granola (Peanut Butter Whole Grain, but all flavors taste delicious)
     - Fresh blueberries
     - Fresh strawberries
     - Unsweetened coconut
     - Extra dark chocolate chips
     - Sprinkles

    This is also a fun snack to make with kids. When I have my niece and nephew over I put all of the toppings in different bowls and let them add the toppings to their individual yogurt bowls. It's a 'build your own yogurt parfait' bar!

    You can buy KIND granola from the KIND website, and Walmart.

  • Giveaway Break - Vaseline Rosy Lips and MarieBelle Chocolates

    Who knew something so tiny could bring so much joy into my life…check out my latest obsession: Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips. Anyone who knows me (or has read my blog in the past) knows that I keep a tube of lip balm everywhere in my life. In my coat pocket, in my purse, in my laptop bag, in my suitcase, in my car, etc. I can’t go without lip balm for more than an hour.

    My favorite type of moisturizing balm is petroleum based, so obviously Vaseline has made an appearance in my bags. I recently got a sample of the Rosy Lips mini jar and fell in love. The light rosy hue it leaves on lips is just gorgeous. And it’s just as moisturizing as regular Vaseline, which makes it a win-win. And the cute size also helps its appeal. 

    This mini jar retails for about $2 at drugstores, but you can also try to win for yourself below!

  • Lisa Hoffman Fragrance Jewelry

    When looking for a new fragrance, I always go after one that transitions nicely from day to night. Since I sit close to teammates at work and I'm in and out of conference rooms, I don't want to wear anything that's super strong or overpowering.
    I recently came across Lisa Hoffman's Fragrance Jewelry and thought: "this is genius." Stylish, wearable fragrance that isn't overbearing. It's the perfect amount of fragrance. I tried the Tuscan Fig scent and loved it's vanilla bean notes. The rose gold fragrance charm is so pretty too. Perfect accent to an outfit.
    Other brilliant things about this product:
     - It's travel friendly! You don't have to add it to your quart size baggie through security and you don't have to worry about it breaking in your bag.
     - It's double duty - both stylish jewelry and fragrance.
     - It's refillable. Unlike perfume where you have to buy a new bottle once out, with Fragrance Jewelry, you just have to buy new fragrance beads.

    Lisa Hoffman also has a new Black Collection. It's so sleek! And it will go with so many different outfits. I also like the wooden bead bracelet. Super cute for layering!

    Have you tried Fragrance Jewelry before? If so, what do you think? What's your favorite piece in the collection?
