A Graeter’s Gift

Calling all ice cream fanatics! If you haven’t tried Graeter’s Ice Cream you are missing out. I am a huge fan of ice cream and Graeter’s is hands down my favorite. Their salted caramel chocolate chip will blow your mind.

As you can see from the pictures Indie is also a big fan.

I couldn’t keep her away from them and not to mention she is teething so she literally wants to put everything in her mouth.

Christmas is such a busy time of year so it’s awesome when you find a quick and easy gift idea. Graeter’s actually makes it super convenient to give a sweet gift this holiday season. When I got this package of ice cream my husband and I were so pumped so I know that if you bless someone with a Graeter’s gift they will be ecstatic.

There’s nothing like coming home to a cooler full of ice cream at your door!

When you order Graeter’s ice cream online you can mix and match your own custom gift box of ice cream. The website makes it really easy and fast to ship, and also allows you to select the perfect day for your ice cream to arrive.

You can click here to start your order or visit their website

You can use my unique code Darling-Sweets for $5 off your order through December 13th.

Thank you Graeter’s for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Goddess Vibes

Feeling sassy and goddess like in this dress! I love long dresses like this but I always have trouble in the winter deciding what type of shoes to wear with them. In the summer it’s so easy to just throw on an open toe sandal or heel but for some reason a closed toe shoe just doesn’t seem right to me. Anyone else have this issue?

The great thing is this dress is long enough to keep my feet covered so the shoe thing isn’t a challenge this time. You can find the dress at for under $30 just click here and get your shop on!

Now I’ve got to run and finish my cyber Monday shopping 🙂 have a great night, friends.

Black Friday with Pink Blush

Every Thanksgiving my husband and I travel to Illinois to spend time with his family. This year is no difference in plans but a big difference because we’ll have Indie with us to show off! I can’t wait for her to meet more of her family especially her great great grandmother.

I still can’t decide if I want to go out and shop for Black Friday! I mean I will for sure be hitting the online sales but I typically like to stay at home on Black Friday or stop by a few of my favorite stores.

One of my favorite places to shop online (and where this dress is from) Pink Blush is having a major Black Friday sale- currently offering 40% off site wide! Click here to shop and use code BLACKFRIDAY for your 40% off. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!

Avarcas love

California dreaming over here in Tennessee as I write this blog. Missing San Diego so much but so thankful for the time our little family had there. These pictures were taken at the Omni Resort where my friends and I had the best spa day! I highly recommend the Omni especially if you’re up for some pampering.

You guys I am absolutely loving my Mibo Avarcas sandals. This is my first pair and definitely won’t be my last. If you haven’t heard of them they are simple and beautiful leather handcrafted sandals made in Menorca (Spain).

You can basically wear them with everything! I throw mine on with anything from dresses and distressed jeans to leggings and a t-shirt.

Every time I wear them I get compliments and questions about them. The number one question is are they comfortable and the answer is YES. They are now my go to sandal and I really wish Tennessee was warm enough for me to wear them year round.

For Black Friday Samuel the owner is having a amazing sale and you guys can use the code BLACKFRIDAY2017 for 25% off your order.

Happy Black Friday shopping!

Kindness is Power: Carissa’s Story 

Today I’m sharing on a very important topic and something many kids have experienced in school. October is National Bullying Prevention Month and most of us can say at some point in our life we’ve been bullied but Carissa’s story is a little different. She’s experienced being bullied for something there’s currently no cure for. She suffers from eczema and was relentlessly bullied due to her condition. I want to share Carissa’s story because no child should be bullied especially not for a disease with no cure.

Carissa was treated at the Avene Hydrotherapy Center in the southwest of France where she’s made immense progress. Please take a moment to visit to hear Carissa’s full story or click here to watch the video! 

Cooler Days 

My favorite thing about Fall is the cooler temperatures because like I said in my last post, I love layering! I can never put my summer dresses away throughout winter because I literally wear them year round with layers. I also love this weather because I can still wear my favorite shorts with some ankle boots a tee and sometimes even a chunky knit sweater. 

This look is a go to for me and these shorts are super comfortable and I can’t get enough of the distressed look. It kind of makes the look seem a little more casual and I like that! These shorts are a steal under $20 and you can find them here. Have a great week you guys! 

All about those layers 

Fall is here and that means it’s time to transition that summer dress into fall with some fun layers! This dress from SheIn is one of my favorite dresses to layer with t-shirts, cardigans, and jackets. Gingham print is pretty big right now so when I saw this dress online for a really good price I couldn’t say no! 
You just can’t beat a cute dress that’s under $20.  Click here to shop this dress and if you order it tag me in your pictures so I can see how you later it. Have a great day, loves! 

Fall Vibes with Sandgrens Clogs 


Fall is my favorite! I love summer but there’s just something about Fall that makes me feel so good. This outfit is also a favorite of mine. This dress is from Pink Blush and the clogs are from Sandgrens Clogs. They are perfect for transitioning into Fall. If you look at the first picture you can see the adorable fringe on the top and that’s one reason why I had to have them! 

If you haven’t invested in a pair of clogs you are missing out. They not only look perfect with dresses but I love wearing them with my jeans as well. If you follow me on social media I’m sure you’ll see more posts coming with these beauties styled different ways.

Beach Ready 

I miss the beach so bad and cannot wait to take Indie next week! I’m just dreaming of us both sleeping under our little beach tent all morning. So, I am loving this shirt from SheIn. Their prices are amazing and this top is my favorite!!! Click here to shop this shirt. I found these adorable shoes from Zara and they were on sale and made it to me this week (just in time for my trip) so of course I had to throw them on with this outfit. I hope you guys have a great week and I’ll be sending you guys lots of chill beach vibes while I’m soaking in the sunshine 🙂 

Owlet Smart Sock 2

it’s easy to turn the Base Station off right from the Owlet app when nursing or rocking the baby, and easily re-enable it when you put your baby back in their crib

I’m so excited to share with you guys a baby product that I think every parent should invest in. Most of you have heard of Owlet, but not everyone understands exactly how it works and not everyone knows if it’s truly worth the cost. 

Having a new baby is full of sleepless nights and a lot of those even consist of the baby actually sleeping but as a new parent you wake up or can’t sleep because you’re worried about your little one. Before I started using the Owlet Smart Sock I maybe got 3 hours of sleep total each night because I was so afraid our babe was going to stop breathing! Tell me I’m not the only mom that has stayed awake to watch my baby’s chest go up and down? 

Well the creators of Owlet are parents and they created the Owlet Smart Sock to help make parents lives easier! 

Using pulse oximetry to track your baby’s heartrate and breathing while sleeping, the Owlet Smart Sock 2 notifies you if your baby’s oxygen and heart rate fall outside the preset zones. 

The Owlet Smart Sock 2 connects to a base station that will notify you via the Owlet app that can be downloaded on your phone to send you notifications. I love that it’s so easy to use and has a Sock for both feet that can be worn up until your baby is 18 months old! 

As a parent nothing is more important than the well being my child and I am so thankful for a product that gives parents, especially first time parents like me such peace of mind. 

I definitely recommend the Owlet Smart Sock to all parents and it just so happens that they are having a 45 day “peace of mind” guarantee! Click here to find out more info. 

Thank you Owlet for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
