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 http://aveneusa.com/hope 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.

A Grand Adventure 

Peter pan once said, “To live will be an awfully big adventure.” That’s exactly what I want.

While I LOVE adventure I don’t want to only go on adventures, I  want my life to be a big adventure. A life that is actually full of life.
I want to live in the moment and enjoy every bit of this wonderful life Jesus gave me and lately I’ve been feeling far from that. I find myself getting easily frustrated, complaining, and basically just getting caught up in the cares of the world that don’t even really matter. Sometimes it takes getting to these “ugly” places for me to see what it is I really desire from my life and fully living I would have to say is at the very top of the list. I’ve always said that being a follower of Jesus is such a wild adventure because you end up doing things you never even dreamed of. Maybe it’s because we truly lay our life down and He starts putting His desires in our hearts. I believe that the only way to fully live is to live a life sold out to Jesus and if I’m honest I haven’t been. I have been so caught up in the busyness of life that I’ve been choosing life’s demands over Him and friends I am TIRED.
So for now, my adventure is getting back to that intimate place with Jesus, back to the place where I focus on the things above instead of the cares of the world. I am so thankful that God is SO good and SO full of love that anytime we wander away no matter if it’s a week or a year He always welcomes us with open arms and invites us to live a grand adventure with Him.
