Summer Beauty

April 22, 2015 in Fashion, Lifestyle by Heather

SuaveWarm weather is here to stay! And with warm weather should come small adjustments to your beauty routine. If you live in the South, you pretty much don’t have a choice but to start working more with your hair’s natural texture, to get your skin primed for shorts by now and let’s face it, shave more!

SuaveI was thrilled to get to test out the new line: Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion which is a great way to transition to spring/summer skin and hair care. It is infused with sea salts and has a nice, clean ocean-like smell. The two products I have found myself turning to over and over again are the Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion Exfoliating Body Wash and the Sea Salt Spray.

Suave exfoliating sea salt body washAs if there aren’t enough negatives to getting older, here’s another bonus fact: Aging causes cell turnover to slow and dead skin cells can give us a dull complexion. Exfoliating is important at least weekly to help get rid of the dead top layers of skin. Exfoliating allows moisturizers and other facial products to better penetrate the skin and helps your foundation glide on smoothly instead of sitting atop flaky skin. I’ve been using the exfoliating body wash in the shower each week and have found that it helps my favorite self-tanners go on more smoothly and evenly as well.

As most of you know from my style posts by now, my favorite way to do my hair currently is with loose curls (time permitting). I typically blow my hair out until it’s a giant puff pall with unsightly waves in the back and then use hot rollers to tame the beast, touching up as needed with a curling iron. You can see in the picture above, heat and humidity are already starting to get to it, trying to take away my hour long, hard fought process. ;) The unfortunate part for me is usually after 1 sleep, my tight curls try to come back. Sometimes I can tame them, sometimes I can’t and since I don’t wash my hair everyday, if I need to add a little spritz of life back into my hair, I reach for Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray.

SuaveNEW Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion is a salon-inspired range of products infused with a carefully chosen blend of rich minerals from the sea for effortless volume. In fact, the Suave Professionals® is Salon proven to add texture as well as Bumble and bumble Surf® Spray. Find out where to buy these products here. What is your favorite way to add life to your 2nd day hair?

5 All-Natural Beauty & Home Tips

All Natural Remedies

One thing I’ve thought a lot about in the past few years is how to clean up my diet. I have really enjoyed learning about the health benefits and watching my body change as I fuel it with healthy, all natural foods. So, when I started thinking about Earth Day this year and ways I’d like to continue to live healthier, one thing that came to mind was using more all natural products for our household.

One of my friend’s husband works in landscaping and while he’s in chemicals all day, he insists that they avoid using them at home in their laundry care and cleansing products because he sees how careful their staff has to be around these types of products. That’s one of the main things that has made me be more cautious about what I buy.

Tom’s of Maine challenged me to think about ways to be more green in my everyday life and I’ve got to believe if I fuel my body with healthy foods and it makes a difference, omitting chemicals in products can only further my health. Never one to shy away from a challenge, here’s 5 ways I’ve thought of to incorporate all natural products into my daily healthcare routine.

5 All-Natural Beauty and Home Tips:

1. Use Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste with flouride and their deodorant that is all natural. I even tested out the deodorant today while teaching a Pure Barre class and running 2.5 miles. So far, so good on avoiding being stinky. Thumbs up!

2. Switch as many products as possible to all natural whether it be our soap or our laundry detergent. I’d love to start mixing up some vinegar, thieves, etc to clean our home in a more all natural manner.

3. Dip a Q tip in water and then baking soda to use as an all natural lip exfoliator. Top lips with petroleum jelly or chapstick afterwards.

4. Swish with coconut oil for several minutes a day as a natural tooth whitener and bad breath banisher.

5. I add baking soda as an all natural whitener sometimes. All you have to do is put a little baking soda on a piece of aluminum foil, wet your toothbrush, dip in the baking soda and apply toothpaste as normal.

Have you used Tom’s of Maine’s all natural products before? I had only tried samples before and was excited to have the chance to give them a whirl! If you love finding a deal like me, you are in luck because you can get a $1 off coupon HERE. You can use your coupon at Walmart to get either the deodorant or the toothpaste for a little over $3, awesome!

What all natural remedies or tips have you started using in your home? I’d love to learn what’s working well for you guys!

20 Weeks

April 19, 2015 in Lifestyle, Pregnancy by Heather

20 WeeksHow far along? OH MAN! It’s the half way point: 20 Weeks. Baby is about 6.5 inches from head to rump. I cannot even believe we are half way there! In case you missed last week, here’s my 19 week report.

Weight gain: Holding steady at 11 lbs.

Maternity clothes? I went to The Swanky Stork for the first time this weekend and was in Heaven…so many cute clothes for momma’s to be and they even have Kristalize jewelry. I picked up 3 adorable dresses, a necklace, and some linen shorts. In the outfit above I’m wearing a Pink Blush top, regular maxi skirt and a new Charming Charlie’s Outlet kimono.

Stretch marks? So far, so good!

Other Body Changes: Some of my more restrictive Lululemon pants are starting to feel really uncomfortable now. When I went running today for the first time in a couple of weeks, it felt like I was running with a bowling ball in place of my stomach…so heavy! Breathing while walking quickly or running is becoming a little harder. It feels like I’m 10x more winded than I should be.

Sleep: Pretty good, vast improvement over last week’s sinus issues.

Best moment this week:  Getting back to Pure Barre and exercising after taking about a week off due to the sinus crud.

Miss Anything? I’ve found out that when we go to Ireland for vacation in a bit that I’ll be missing out on quite a few things I hoped to do: horse back riding, pub drinks, shooting (apparently it’s too loud for baby? I had no idea that was a thing.), and potentially biking depending on how smooth the trails are.

Movement: I have felt “muscle twitches” which are supposedly Leyton, I guess? Still waiting for more definitive movement.

Food cravings: Arby’s curly fries or potato cakes, pretzel M&M’s, Greek yogurt and Sweet Tarts mini chews are all things I’ve just had to have this past week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No

Gender: boy

Symptoms: Finishing up my sinus issues, I hope! Muscle fatigue sooner than I would expect…taking breaks on runs, etc.

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Prayerful…lots of big things coming up!
Baby is the size of: a small cantaloupe

Looking forward to: Ireland!!

Summer Office Wear

Summer Work Wear Ideas to Keep Cool

Summer Work Wear Ideas

Summer Work Wear Ideas

Summer Work Wear Ideas

Ask anyone in my office who is most likely to have messed with the thermostat, and they’ll tell you it’s me. I am hot natured and always have been. I can’t stand being too warm, and work wear during the summer quickly becomes my nemesis. I’ve partnered with the The Outlet Shops of Grand River to show you some of my best summer work wear tips to stay cool, calm, and collected despite the rising temperatures. And trust me, this summer will be the hardest one yet to stay cool. Carrying a baby in the summer maybe wasn’t the best planning on my part. Ha!

Above you can see some of the outfits I’ve selected. Throughout the spring and summer, I’ll show you more outfit details in each styled look to help you achieve a cool summer work wear look. My office is pretty casual, so I’m fortunate that I don’t have to wear a suit or close-toed shoes. I hope you can take some of the basics of these styling tips and make them applicable to your wardrobe & work necessities.

Office Wear Tips for SummerSummer Office Wear Ideas:

1. Statement pieces: I love pairing a plain work appropriate cool shirt with a big colorful bag, or a statement necklace. Buy 2-3 pieces that will give you the most bang for your buck! I went to Charming Charlie’s and scored all the awesome jewelry  & the bright bag you see in these photos plus those tan wedges.

2. Shoes, Shoes, Shoes: Find a few pairs of classic summer shoes that will go with everything you own. I loved these tan wedges as I said because they’re a great neutral to throw on with any outfit. I also am digging these Old Navy Outlet black strappy sandals with just enough of a wedge to give you some height without being too much. Get a great pair of flats, a wedge, and a heel that won’t kill your feet. Comfort is key during the sweltering summer months in the south!

3. Opt for breathable fabrics: Think lightweight linen, cotton, lace, seersucker… The way to stay cool in the office is by opting for lighter fabrics, not baring more skin. Since spaghetti straps and sleeveless are usually frowned upon, make sure if you wear an item like this you cover up in a light sleeveless or short-sleeved kimono or cardi. Remember, it’s still work and there’s no need for bra straps hanging out. In my office sleeveless is acceptable, so I make the most of it!

4. Summer dresses for the win: I adore dresses year-round because they are easy to style. No mixing and matching, you just throw it on and go. The summer is prime time to wear a dress and enjoy a lighter, breezy feel. Just make sure your dress is around knee-length and if not, slightly above. The more structured or dressy the dress, the more office appropriate it seems which is where you may be able to get away with a few inches above the knee (i.e. this beauty I’m wearing from LOFT Outlet).

5. Be Inventive: Long capris are A-ok for me to wear in my creative job. I love The Loft blue and white pinstripe seersucker look. Since I wore capris in a couple of these looks though, I dressed it up with lace, a statement piece or dressier shoes to make them more work-wear appropriate.

6. Avoid Darks: Dark charcoals, blacks, and brown bags or full outfits will soak up the sun and heat. In Birmingham, it’s not unusual to have lots of days in the upper 90’s with a humidity and feeling of 110, so when I wear black pants, I want to scream. I loved the last neutrals look I pulled together from dressbarn outlet; I was actually surprised by this look coming from their store and was excited to jazz it up with their funky pattern-play skirt.

7. Have fun! Summer is the time to play. Experiment with florals that are so trendy now, have fun with patterns, rock a mauve lip, and wear your hair in a braid…maybe just not all in the same day! ;) I opted for a bun because it’s my best pull it together in 5 minutes look to get my hair off my neck and still look put together (after not washing my hair in a few days!).

I got all these items from above at the Shops of Grand River and found some amazing deals! What is your favorite outfit for summer work days?

Thanks to Magen Davis Photography for all these shots. Bless her heart, we were both feeling sick the day we shot these!

Spring Transition

Need those earrings

Spring Transition Outfit

I thought about titling this post for what it is: Pregnancy Brain. It hit me early this morning (and I mean real early, because I couldn’t sleep…we’re talking 4:45 am, people.) that I never posted this outfit post for the spring transition. And, now it’s officially spring and warm. But hey it’s rainy, and we’re going to pretend you still need this, k? And, let’s be real, with those chilly office temps and my peeps up north you may still be transitioning. Just bear with me on this pregnancy moment, ok?

You may recognize these boots from my 1 year anniversary blog party, or any other number of events if you know me in real life. I ADORE them. They are buttery leather, have an awesome stacked heel, and are over the knee…it slays me. Luckily for you, I found them on SALE for you HERE! They were originally $315 and they are now marked down to under $200. You will want these wardrobe staples in your possession next year too, trust me.

I got this piko style long sleeve tee at our local Francesca’s for around $20 and I got the Express sweater on clearance around Black Friday. I hate to see it’s sold out now because I wear it all the time. As you can see, this outfit is all about the layers, boots over pants, top over pants, sweater over top, and then jewelry layered on jewelry!

As you know, I featured local designer Kate Morris Jewelry a few posts back and I love her pieces for layering! You can even get 30% off her new summer line with the code MLWL. I hope you aren’t afraid to try out layering your jewelry. It’s so fun and gives everything a fresh edge. Try picking a smaller, simple shorter piece that’s clear as pictured here and then stack it with something chunkier and longer to start. Baby steps…

What are you wearing for spring transition or ok, ok, just this week? Still lots of layers? Just your Hunter rain boots and whatever goes with them? Let me know in the comments below!

19 Weeks

April 12, 2015 in Pregnancy by Heather

19 Weeks

How far along? 19 Weeks. Baby is about 6 inches from head to rump. This was a big week because I did the “big 20 week” check up. My co-workers recommended I drink a Mountain Dew right before the appointment to get Leyton to put on a show for us on the ultrasound. He was pretty active…arms up, legs kicked up over his head, and moving around. They checked for healthy lungs, heart, etc and that we still have a boy. ;) Leyton weights 10 oz right now! In case you missed last week, here’s my 18 week report.

Weight gain: 11 lbs at doctor’s visit, but I’ve been sick with allergies lately which has turned into a sinus infection…killing my appetite, so now I’ve lost a couple of pounds since the appointment.

Maternity clothes? I did the big winter/summer clothes overhaul this past week. I was super sad to pack back up all my super cute summer dresses and short shorts that I can’t really wear this year. I feel like my wardrobe will be on repeat a lot this summer so excuse the same outfits over and over again you’ll keep seeing.

Stretch marks? No. I did a full review of the Basq products I’ve been using last week in case you missed it.

Other Body Changes: I’m noticing now that when I bend down to get things while seated, I can feel pressure on my stomach. It probably won’t be much longer before I can’t bend down as easily to get stuff out of the passenger side floorboard in my car or easily pick up a dropped pen at work.

Sleep: I just can’t sleep very well right now because I can’t breathe, ha! Poor Eric’s sleep isn’t the best right now either since I’m loudly trying to breathe, etc.

Best moment this week:  It was really cool to see all four heart chambers, moving arms and legs, and a strong profile in the 20 week appointment this week. I’m so thankful that everything went well at the appointment and that Leyton is looking healthy and strong.

Miss Anything? I’ve learned that pregnant women are more likely to have sinus issues. I miss being able to breathe normally right now. My seasonal allergies have turned into a sinus infection. According to babycenter, “Higher amounts of estrogen during pregnancy can contribute to swelling in the mucous membranes lining the nose and even cause you to make more mucus. What’s more, the amount of blood in your body increases during pregnancy, which may cause swelling in the tiny blood vessels in the lining of your nose and congestion in the surrounding tissue.”

Movement: During the ultrasound, my tech said to me, “You really can’t feel that?” and sadly I couldn’t. She said my placenta is on the front in between Leyton and me so it acts as a pillow (for now) insulating the movements. Due to the placement of the placenta (say that 10x fast!), she said it may take me an extra couple of weeks before I can feel him.

Bundle Organics
Food cravings: Still just wanting lots of sugar unfortunately-TCBY, sour brite crawlers, sour punch straws. TCBY at least once a week is currently a thing. I love their white chocolate mousse. I’m trying to get in juices and extra veggies to help fill me up more so I don’t crave sugar as much. (Speaking of which you can get 15% off these pasteurized juices from Bundle Organics with the code MLWL15!)
Anything making you queasy or sick: No

Gender: boy

Symptoms: All sinus-related pretty much this week.

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Tired of being sick, but so grateful for a healthy baby at our 20 week appt!
Baby is the size of: a large mango

Looking forward to: Breathing normally again.

Beauty Bits: Basq Skincare

Basq Skin Care-a must for pregnant mommies

 

Basq Skin Care-a must for pregnant mommies

 

Basq Skin Care-a must for pregnant mommies

I have found my new holy grail face wash: Basq Rebalancing Facial Cleanser. After getting pregnant, I started breaking out pretty badly along my jaw line and on my back. It’s just lovely all the side effects that pregnancy will have on you… Weight gain isn’t enough, NO…let’s add in acne, swelling, and a few other symptoms I’ll leave to your imagination.

After I posted a photo of my Basq on Instagram when I first got it, one of my Instagram followers commented, “Love their rebalancing facial cleanser! It is literally the best cleanser I have used, you will love. It changes your skin!” -@lisaruggiero Boy, that’s an exciting review to hear!

I have started using the basq skin care system daily to help me get my skin back on track. At night I slather on the facial cleanser with my Clarisonic. And then I turn to what I’m hoping will be my holy grail for avoiding stretch marks: Basq Advanced Stretch Mark Butter & Resilient Body Stretch Mark Oil. I have learned recently that it’s important to use the body butter and oils on my chest, hips and stomach to avoid stretch marks. Goodness gracious I hope you guys keep giving me these kind of tips, they are BEYOND helpful. I would have just been putting it on my tummy without y’all.

I’ve also started using the basq Sugar Body Polish to exfoliate, and hopefully help render any back-ne helpless to hang on! Whenever I use the citrus body scrub and the body oils, Eric comments that I smell so good. A bonus perk? I’ll take it! These products are tested for allergy and sensitivity and the entire line is paraben, phthalate and animal testing free. Basq’s goal is to have each product feature a combination of nutrient rich essential oils and plant extracts that accelerate the building blocks that strengthen, rebuild and replenish within the skin and thus allowing to see results.

I’ve got a little bonus beauty treat over for y’all on Instagram, so make sure you go follow me (@mylifewellloved) to enter to win a Kendra Scott jewelry surprise!

Hope you enjoyed this installment of Beauty Bits! Make sure you pop over to visit Buffy from The Style Gathering, Martha & Caroline from style briefs and Amy from my scoop to see what those girls are recommending this month. You may just find another giveaway in the mix!

Facebook for Bloggers: Tips

April 6, 2015 in Social Media by Heather

Facebook for Bloggers

Today I’m sharing my down and dirty Facebook tips to grow your blog. These are just a quick 20 tips to help you make sure you’re doing everything you can to maximize your Facebook exposure. In case you missed the first post I did about Facebook for bloggers and small business owners, check it out here where I go into more detail about creating a successful and inviting Facebook page!

20 Tips for Growing Your Facebook for Bloggers:

1. Invite your friends and family members to like your page! You have to start somewhere.

2. Share your Facebook page and some new posts from your Facebook page to your personal page if it makes sense for a majority of your friends. A lot of my Facebook friends are really into new recipes so if I share one from my blog, it will most likely appeal to a large number of them.

3. Like and comment on other blogger’s FB page in your niche from your blog’s FB page. You can do this by selecting use Facebook as “title of blog page” in the upper right hand corner where you go to logout.

4. Link up to other blogger’s Facebook page parties. For instance, I love joining Aunt Bee’s Recipes recipe parties she occasionally hosts and it’s a great way to get exposure for my page as well.

5. Include your FB page in your blog sidebar or header and email signature. If people don’t know you have a FB page, how will they find you?

6. Content is king, as always! If you aren’t sharing posts that HELP your readers, they aren’t very likely to read it or interact with you about it on Facebook. Think about your posts. Are they helping solve a problem, entertain, or teach your readers something?

7. It’s important to get interaction quickly on a post to show FB it’s “worth showing” according to their algorithm. I’ve found that a lot of times if I can get likes or comments quickly on a post, it will be shown to more people. I’ll ask people in my tribe to quickly comment and like/comment as Heather sometimes instead of MLWL to get the good algorithm vibes flowing!

8. Ask a question a few times per week with no picture to get your “seen by” total up. It seems to work for me so hopefully it will work for you! The simpler the question the better. Things like how many kids do you have? Have you eaten lunch yet? Yes and no questions work well and your audience can elaborate if they want.

9. Tag people (your FB friends) in photos when possible to increase your reach and the amount of people that see the post.

10. Share old content each day if you don’t have new content to share. It’s always helpful to keep driving traffic back to your website. And I can guarantee you all of your blog readers haven’t seen every post you’ve ever written!

11. Share your community’s content. If your fans tried your recipe, or makeup tutorial and tagged you in it, re-share. People love to feel like they’re a part of your community!

12. Ask for what you want. Do you want comments on your blog post? Comments on the FB post? Shares? Many times I find that just by asking, the number goes up!

13. Keep it simple. Facebook posts with less than 80 characters get 23% more engagement. Posts between 100 and 250 characters get about 60% more engagement. I read this from several different sources.

14. Share viral posts since you already know they have good mojo behind them and thus will increase your views on that post and “seen by” number. The reason it’s important to get people to like, comment, and share your posts is because if they do, FB assumes they want to see more of your posts!

15. Experiment with FB ads where it makes sense. Launching an ebook, podcast or new product? By all means test out paying to see if it’s worth it.

16. Keep a close eye on what content is trending on your blog via Pinterest and traffic hits and make sure to promote it via FB in a timely manner.

17. Good pictures are important on FB; edit them just like you would for Instagram. Other bloggers are more likely to share your photos if they are pretty as well!  I find that posts I do with 2-5 pictures usually perform well because people click on the post to interact with and see each photo in a larger version.

18. Building a strong, organic following takes time. Don’t sweat it…the fans will come, just keep working hard and chipping away at it day by day.

19. Be a wordsmith. Make people intrigued to learn what you are talking about…ask questions that get them fired up. I’ve learned recently that kids is definitely one of those things for my audience which is awesome because they give me great feedback for parenting, which I’m about to have to learn a lot about!

20. Facebook is a social network! Keep it social by sharing others’ content and joining FB groups full of similar bloggers to help promote one another. Share your friends, grow your tribe, connect to FB sharing groups. Genuinely ask your blogging friends how you can help them every once in a while. They’ll be happy to help you too!

What tips would you add to this list? I’d love to hear them below! Make sure you like the My Life Well Loved page while you’re at it, I’d love to connect! If you need help growing your social media, I offer social media consulting and would love to chat with you!

18 Weeks

April 2, 2015 in Pregnancy by Heather

18 weeksHow far along? 18 Weeks. Baby is about 5 1/2 inches from head to rump. Clearly from this photo, the spring sun was out and bright after church on Sunday! In case you missed last week, here’s my 17 week report!

Weight gain: 10 lbs

Maternity clothes? I am LOVING my Pink Blush maternity jeans! They are my new staple. I have some preggo outfit posts coming your way soon, so stay tuned! I also ordered a couple of pairs of elastic waisted printed pants for the summer for work that can sit below the baby bump.

Stretch marks? No, but I have started using my Basq oils and stretch mark cream religiously!

Other Body Changes: So bizarre to look at my stomach and not identify with the same stomach I’ve seen in the mirror for 29 years. I’ve had people start to tell me they can tell I look pregnant while others keep saying, they can barely tell. Well, I can certainly tell, ha! It depends a lot on what I wear how pregnant I look it seems.

Sleep: Vivid dreams are pretty commonplace again. Sleeping with my pretty Bumpnest is making sleep much better.

Best moment this week:  Date night with the hubs tonight. We went to J. Alexander’s and then out to Pale Eddie’s to hear Danielle Davis and Rockstar play.

Miss Anything? A cocktail would have been nice while listening to music tonight with the hubs.

Movement: Not yet-should be coming soon!

Food cravings: Sugar is my arch nemesis. I have to have something sweet at least once a day. Sometimes multiple times. :(

Anything making you queasy or sick: No

Gender: boy

Symptoms: A couple of nights during Pure Barre I am really noticing myself getting out of breath getting up and down. It also feels like lots of things are shifting and feeling weird in my muscles during Pure Barre classes.

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Anxious…ready for Ireland, house hunting, job searching for the hubs…lots of big things coming up!
Baby is the size of: a sweet potato

Looking forward to: My big checkup appointment next week with the 20 week ultrasound.
