Best Cleaning Products + GIVEAWAY

I have spent the majority of my life cleaning. My mom always made me clean, so naturally, I spend about 85% of my life, cleaning my house and doing laundry. I am regularly washing dishes, vacuuming, and running back and forth to the laundry room. It can get pretty exhausting, but that’s my life.

With all of my years of cleaning, I have tried all kinds of different products. Just recently, I came across a new brand that I have been using non-stop. Have you heard of Sapadilla? If you have, you get a high-five from me. If you haven’t, that’s okay; I’m about to share some excellent information with you.

Sapadilla products have plant-based ingredients and have 100% pure essential oil blends. Did I mention that they are also cruelty-free and made in the United States?

Sapadilla carries products from laundry soap and dish soap to countertop and all-purpose cleansers.

Scents:
Grapefruit + Bergamont
Rosemary + Peppermint
Sweet Lavender + Lime

I love the fact that Sapadilla products are super affordable; I don’t want to spend a ton of money on something that I am continuously buying.

Since I love these products, I am giving you a chance to try them out for yourself! I am hosting a giveaway on my Instagram, make sure to head that way to enter. Sapadilla and I will be giving away a countertop cleaner, hand soap, and dish soap.

If you are too excited and don’t want to wait for the giveaway, you can head to Sapadilla.com and purchase your cleaning supplies.

I want to thank Sapadilla for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

If you have a social media platform of any sort, then I’m almost certain that you’ve seen the trendy, natural wood watches that have been taking over the internet.

There’s something about a watch that can just tie an entire look together. It can make a girl feel empowered, stylish, and like she is on time, all at once. There’s nothing that I love more than being somewhere on time, (especially because I’m always late). I can show up looking and feeling like the Girl Boss that I am.

If you haven’t heard of Jord before, let me share a little bit of information with you. They are an amazing watch company that creates a unique timepiece made from natural wood. I know, incredible! Their minimalist watches are made for both men and woman, not to mention how stunning they are.

My watch of choice is the Frankie Purpleheart & Plum Watch, the wood is naturally purple, and is sourced from the Solomon Islands. It’s the perfect color and size for me. I am so in love with my watch, I am also in love with the fact that Jord has the option of personalized engraving and sizing. Did I mention free shipping?

Jord has so many different styles and types of wood to choose from. So go have a look and take your pick. One of these watches with the perfect engraving would make for the best gift.
I haven’t even told you the best part, Jord is offering a $100 E-Gift Card Giveaway! You read that right, $100 off a watch of your choice. Everyone who enters will receive 10% off just for trying!

Product Review: Rodan +FIELDS & GIVEAWAY!

If you don’t already know, the key to good makeup application is great skin. Your face is a canvas, if you have the right tools, your painting will come out flawless. For today’s Makeup Monday I have a Rodan +FIELDS product review and giveaway. My friend Laura and I will be giving away 5 mini facials, so stay tuned!

In order to figure out what kind of treatment I needed, Laura, sent me a solution tool so that she could send over the proper samples!

I received the travel sized version of the Reverse Brightening Regiment.

The travel size comes with four steps:

  • Deep exfoliating wash
  • Intensive brightening toner
  • Dual active brightening complex
  • Broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen

Bonus:

Microdermabrasion Paste

Being someone that wears a lot of makeup, I need that intense exfoliating feel, so that I know my skin is being cleaned. I am also someone that has a lot of discoloration and some dark spots. The toner and brightening complex will help to reduce those problems. We all need SPF in our lives, it is the most important part of skin care!

My first thought when I received the products in the mail is that the travel size has a pretty fair amount of product. I love the simple yet bold packaging. The white makes the products look clean, while the yellow is bright, in your face, and refreshing.

Deep exfoliating wash:

While testing out the deep exfoliant wash, the smell was incredible, I am a sucker for an orange scent, and that is exactly what I got! I received the deep exfoliate feeling just as promised, it really made me feel like I got every inch of makeup off of my face. A clean face is a happy one!

Intensive Brightening Toner:

This toner has a tingling effect, which I love, that helps me to know that the product is actually working and cleansing!

Dual active brightening complex:

This contains retinol to help keep the pesky breakouts away. It feels so soothing and applies so smoothly.

Broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen:

This sunscreen is a thick consistency, it has a hint of a sunscreen smell, but not too overpowering. SPF is a great product to have on under your makeup. The sun ages you, protect the skin!

All in all, I would rate Rodan + FIELDS products a 5/5. Trust me when I say that you need it in your life.

A little touch of jewelry +GIVEAWAY (Closed)

I love being a girl, I get to express myself in all sorts of different ways! Lipstick can transform my entire makeup look, jewelry can spice up my OOTD. Isn’t¬†it amazing? The magic of a choker can make me go from nice girl to I’ll kick your ass, in two seconds.

Now I am constantly trying out different, affordable pieces. Exploring the many different styles, colors, shapes, and sizes. There is just so much to choose from and so much to look at!

Charlotte Russe Plus Fashion 

It feels like FOREVER since I wrote a blog post. I guess that is what happenes when you love blogging, it’s a serious addiction. I am constantly thinking of different things that I can come up with for you. I have something amazing in mind and you are going to have to stick around to find out what it is. For now I have a few clothing items for you. I may have a slight shopping addiction, but I promise that it is all for you guys…..ok, maybe a little bit for you.


Before this store had a plus size section, I found it hard to find clothes that fit me and were IN-STYLE. Yes, Torrid has cute clothes.. but have you seen the prices? I am broke just looking at the price tag. Forever 21 has plus, but our store is so big and messy that it is hard to find anything! If I do find something, it’s plain and like I told you before, I am sticking with patterns. That is why I am thankful for Charlotte Russe Plus. Not only does Charlotte Russe have cute clothes, but they also have cute shoes. Their price point is a little higher than Forever, but a lot lower than Torrid. The good thing is, they constantly have amazing deals. If you don’t have one of these stores near you, subscribe to their email list, I promise that you will not regret it. They tend to have better online deals than they do in stores. 


Charlotte Russe has so many styles of clothing, it’s not even funny. They have everything from jeans and plain T’s to fancy skirts and cold shoulder rompers. Even if you don’t buy anything, just promise me that you will at least check out their website. I will leave a link right Here.

I can’t even remember why I went to buy a new outfit this time…… Oh yea! I had a baby shower to go to and I just really wanted a new shirt. This flower top is the first thing that I seen when I walked in and knew that I had to get it. It’s perfect for summer, it’s light and it is the complete opposite of my fashion taste. If you are like me and black is your safety color, venture out! It honestly is the best thing that I have ever done. I love finding fun colors and patterns to work with. It is a little bit bit harder to pair, but it is worth it.


I hope that you you enjoy these pictures. It was a fun collaboration with Kailynne’s Kaptures. She just started a photography blog, be sure and show her some love! She is my sister and is also a newbie to WordPress. Feel free to help her out with some tips! I will leave her link Here. I will also try and find the direct links to my clothes. All of the clothing items were purchased from Charlotte Russe Plus, except for the jean capris. I picked those up from target. The all black purse I purchased from Charming Charlie’s and the stripe purse I got at Shi. I love you all and can’t wait to read all of your comments.There is one more thing that I need to mention before I end this post. I have created a Facebook page for my blog. I will be posting the links to all of my posts and sharing my pictures on this page. I will link it Here. It’s brand new and needs some likes, so if you happen to find yourself there, click like. Thank you agin for reading! We are almost at 300 followers, keep an eye out for that giveaway.
