A few things for Mama & one for Baby

Happy J U L Y! 
July is always a fun-filled month in our home between celebrating the 4th, both mine & my hubby's  birthdays (this weekend!!) & our wedding anniversary, which is at the end of the month. It feels like a month long party! ;)
Lots of new packages have arrived from some of favorite shops as well in the past couple of weeks & I am excited to share these gems with ya!

First Up...This month's Rocksbox! I tend to gravitate towards wearing the same jewelry every.single.day. That's why I LOVE my Rocksbox subscription, it really encourages me to switch it up a little! Each month I add items from their site to my wishlist and they do a great job of sending me a mix of those items along with similar pieces that I may not have picked out otherwise, but I always end up LOVING!
My top pick from my current set is handsdown these Wilde Marrakesh Earrings in Silver & Blue. I am pretty sure I will be keeping these!!
Also included in this month's set are the Aster Willow Pendant & Jill Michael Silver Triangle Cutout Cuff.
Feel free to give Rocksbox a free trial for yourself! Just create a wishlist here & then enter coupon code lulupearlblogxoxo during checkout, which will completely cover the cost of your order!
Once your order arrives, you can keep & wear the jewelry for a month & if you really like the pieces, you can choose to purchase & keep them. If not, just pack up the entire set of jewelry using the prepaid envelope that is included in your shipment & send it back absolutely free!

Next up...All things PinkBlush!  They are my number one online spot to shop for trendy, boutique style clothing. I am all about rompers this season and this Navy Paisley V-Neck Romper  is SO comfy & perfect for hot weather! It was my 4th of July outfit :)
I am also loving their Blue Floral Criss-Cross Dress. This dress is flowy & definitely works with a bump, so it's a versatile piece for both maternity & non-maternity wardrobes! Both items are pictured below :)


This last share I will leave you with is all for b a b y! I love finding unique & custom items for my little guy & Kadydid Designs is one my favorite baby shops for that! The owner, Alyssa, sent me this ADORABLE arrow crib sheet for Colton's nursery & I just had to share! I mean how cute is that!?
Colton's nursery has a Cowboy & Arrow theme & this sheet adds such a fun pop of color to his room! It is super soft too :)
Alyssa's shop also sells car seat covers, bibs, teether rings, blankets & all sorts of baby accessories. Follow her on Instagram to check out her adorable prints & custom order options.
You can feel free to use code LULUPEARL to take 15% off your order from her shop here! *Not an affiliate code

Hope you all had a great weekend & a wondeful 4th of July 

XOXO,

PinkBlush Feature Items

Happy Monday,
Just a quick post for you all today! 

I shared this mint pleated maxi skirt that I received from PinkBlush on my Instagram a couple of weeks back and I got A TON of questions about it! I thought I would throw together some details for you all in case you're looking to add to your summer wardrobe.
I also am loving this criss cross top that they sent me along with the skirt! Both items are pictured below


Between chasing our (now mobile!) little guy around, keeping up with errands, cooking & cleaning, I find myself absolutely worn out more often than I'd like to admit. That is why I love being able to share these items from PinkBlush with you all! Sometimes all a girl needs in the midst of the chaos is a few fun items in the closet ;)

Wising you all a fabulous week!
XOXO

Head to Toe Beauty Regimen



Below I have compiled a list of my favorite, everyday beauty items along with their shoppable links! Gonna be straightforward, it's a looonnngg list!! ;)
Please note that the links below are affiliate links which means I receive a small commission through purchases to help keep this blog running at no extra cost to you

Hair Products:
After having my baby boy, I discovered the lovely side effect of postpartum hair. My hair, that had gotten so thick and healthy while pregnant, started falling out! I know that is a pretty typical postpartum experience for most moms. However I also colored my hair for quite a few years, so after having my baby I decided to take my hair back to it's natural color & give it a little TLC.
I currently use a Color Gloss to help deepen my shade back to it's natural color and I have shared that below. It helps to prevent the darker color from fading!
The rest of the items below are what I use for washing & repairing strands & protecting them from heat styling. These products have helped to restore the health of my hair and it is FINALLY back to the way it was pre-baby!
It's a 10 Miracle Leave In Product (I use this sparingly because I have heard overuse can actually cause breakage! I usually apply once a week.)
Teaser Comb (It may just be the pageant girl in me, but the higher the hair the better!!)
Pantene Air Spray Hairspray for brushable, medium hold
 
Self Tanning Products:
I am ALL about tannin' from a bottle opposed to laying out in the sun! I mean I LOVE being poolside but I am terrified of the damage it can do to your skin, so I always use sunblock.
Fake Bake self tanning products have been a favorite of mine since my pageant days! I love their original serum, but if you're not careful, it can be very orange. I am a little bit more fair skinned so that may be why! However for my skintone, this coconut serum I have linked below is perfect because it shows where it goes during application so you can avoid streaks. It is not orange at all and it actually does not have that typical fake tanner smell! 
In fact after putting it on the other day, my hubby walked in and asked if I got a new Bath & Body Works lotion!! It really does smell good :)
I highly recommend using the applicator mit while applying the serum to avoid stained hands. Fake Bake sells an applicator mit, but I just prefer the one by St. Tropez.
I hand wash my mit in cool water after ever use and lay it flat to dry.  I typically apply self tanner 1-2 times per week and I use body lotion to keep moisturized in between applications to extend the life of the color! The color usually lasts about 4-5 days for me.
***If you're looking for great self tanner at a cheaper cost, the option below has been one of my go-to's for years!! It goes on easily and is not streaky! For the quality, you really can't beat the cost :)

Makeup:
So this is probably going to be the LONGEST LIST EVER! I lovee makeup. Back when I was modeling full time, I got to work with some amazing makeup artists  and I got to learn a lot from them! But I love doing makeup so much that I did it myself for my own wedding. I am by NO MEANS a pro, but I just love the process and using different products so whenever I have the option, I opt to do it on my own. I listed the items below in the order that I apply them! So I start with theAnti-Aging Creme, and then I move onto the BB creme and so on :) 

Laura Gellar Blush-N-Brighten(I use this just to highlight my face for a sunkissed look after at the end of application!)
Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray  ***This is always my final step to keep makeup from sweating off or fading

Nails:
Once upon a time I was able to go to the salon regularly to keep up on my no-chip mani & pedi! But as a stay at home mom with a hubby who works long hours, I rarely have time to go in to get my nails done anymore! I love the look of freshly painted nails but I cannot stand chipping so I opt for an at home gel manicure that I can do once my sweet baby goes to sleep at night. The polish below is easy to apply and there is no gel setting light needed! I apply two coats of color (either red, blue or pink because those are my favorites!!) and then one coat of the gel top coat on top. It dries super fast and lasts up to two weeks!!


If you have any questions about the items I have shared or any favorite beauty products of your own, please leave them in the comments below because I always LOVE discovering new items!
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

XOXO

Pureflix Movie Night

Happy Friday Everyone!

These past few weekends have been filled with so much excitement! The hubby and I are standing up in three weddings this coming month & my sister is due with her brand new baby girl in just a few weeks. Between bridal showers & baby showers, a few family birthday parties & a very special Mother's Day celebration, there have been so very many blessings to celebrate these past few weeks!!

As much as we love being on the go, it is really nice to try and schedule in a little down time during our weekends. To kick off this weekend, we are blocking out our Friday evening to have an at home movie night :)

Together with our friends at Pure Flix, I have created a movie night checklist to plan for a relaxing evening in! Pure Flix is a faith based family movie subscription service that not only offers a collection of Christian movies, but wholesome and family-friendly choices too. They even have a special collection of titles created especially for children! You can learn more about the heart behind their services here.


We are excited to kick off this weekend with a movie night & this Mama just might try to squeeze in a little TV series binge watching too, after the boys head off to bed ;) 

Feel free to give Pure Flix a try for your own family with this free, one-month trial offer!
If you or your little ones have any tips on creating a fun family family movie night in, feel free to share in the comments below!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend

Disclosure: I tried out the free subscription trial that Pure Flix is currently offering to everyone before writing this blog post. All opinions & reviews shared in this post are my own. Thank you for supporting brands like them and for supporting this Blog!
