Easy Winter Hairstyle With Suave

This post is sponsored by Mirum, but opinions expressed are my own. #StayGoldwithSuave

Life as a mom of four is fast. Each day feels like it flies by with me running in a lot of directions to keep everything moving. One thing that I don't spend a lot of time on is my hair. I gravitate towards hair care and hair styles that are quick an easy. I look for products that are multipurpose that will help accomplish a lot of bang for my buck. Thankfully there are shortcuts I have found that help do just that. One of those shortcuts is Suave. Suave Professionals® Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner has Kérastase® Oléo-Relax which helps to prevent frizz and allows your hair to be smooth and manageable. This shampoo and conditioner duo helps to fight frizz for up to 48 hours which allows me to skip washing my hair everyday but still keeps my hair looking smooth. With lower sulfates it is also a great product to use on your hair that will help keep it strong and damage free.

Everyone loves to have great looking hair and thanks to Suave you can get frizz control to damage repair at a fraction of the price of salon brands with the Suave Gold products. I have put together this quick and easy tutorial to show you how you can get results you love with spending a fortune. You can #StayGoldwithSuave today.


Start with washing and conditioning using your favorite Suave Professionals® Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner. This will leave your hair smooth and frizz free and ready to style. With a little help from some comb clips and a your preferred curling iron you can quickly style your hair.


Rather than take the tedious task of pinning hair up and thoroughly curling, just quickly grab sections of hair and curl. Not doing such a thorough job of curling will still leave you with great wave to your hair, increased volume and typically only takes just a few minutes. Curling my hair below took no more than five minutes, and we've all got five minutes to spare...right?!


Using the comb clip I will deepen my side part and then pin back the hair. This pushes more hair volume to the other sections of hair getting you quick results with very little effort.


Suave Professionals® Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner allows me to shampoo and condition every other day which also helps save me time when styling. The frizz free results last up to 48 hours which means I can still get great hair without investing too much time. With this hairstyle I will pop on some statement earrings which amps up the glam factor quickly and easily.


Right now there are some great promotions going on with Suave and CVS where you can get rewards for your purchase. From 1/28/18 - 2/3/18 you get $2 ExtraBucks® Rewards when you buy any TWO (2) Suave® Hair Care products or 2/$6 WITH CARD Select Suave® Hair Care products.

Winter Skin Care Tips

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant however all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have officially deemed my hometown the WORST when it comes to winter weather. Okay, maybe I am being a bit dramatic (I blame it on being home for winter break with my kids, that makes everyone dramatic, right?!). I live in a very arid area and during the winter my skin suffers horribly from going between bitter, dry cold outdoors to hot, dry indoors. I am constantly applying lotion post hand-washing, in between hand-washing, post shower, during shower, in the car, at the grocery store, etc. I think you get the picture - I am constantly applying lotion. When I discovered some winter skincare tips from Dr. Barba, courtesy of Dove, naturally my instinct is to read and apply. Literally and figuratively, I am going to apply them in my life.



One area that doesn't get as much love as it deserves is your *ahem* underarms. Yeah, odd as it may seem that tiny little area is sensitive and things as simple as textures and fabrics can irritate the skin. In order to keep that area protected and hydrated Dr. Barba recommends you try Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant that is formulated with moisturizers to help alleviate irritation and leave you with softer, smoother underarms. Even better, it provides 48-hour wetness protection, so you’ll smell great all day. Check out Dove Advanced Care online here.


Personally, I find the biggest challenge for my dry skin during the winter months is related to exercise. I love to maintain and regular workout schedule for my mind and body. During the winter this is particularly important because I want to maintain my energy even when the sun is only in the sky for a few hours a day. Going between the light layers of gym clothes to heavy layers of outdoor clothing, sweating from a workout to freezing upon leaving, all of these things leave my skin dry and begging for a little moisture. My favorite way to combat this is to use a hydrating cleanser when I shower. A hydrating cleanser helps make sure to moisturize the skin and prevent the worsening of dry skin issues. Post workout my shower is sure to include something to help keep my skin moisturized all day long.


Last, but not least, don't forget to moisturize your skin just because its covered. What I mean is, during the winter we tend to layer and a lot of of skin avoids exposure. Because we tend to keep our skin so covered we also run into the issue of not hydrating those areas. Dr. Barba reminds us to be sure to moisturize our entire body and not just the face and hands. Make sure your arms, legs and feet are getting a little of that love too. Trust me, your skin will thank you come spring.

ApotheCARE Essentials Shampoo & Conditioner

This post is sponsored by Mirum, but opinions expressed are my own. #ApotheCAREPartner #ApotheCAREessentials

My family and I just returned from a weekend trip to Boise, Idaho to visit my in-laws for the holidays. We decided to meet somewhere in the middle so the neither of us would be driving too far in bad weather during the holidays. Plus, it would save time for all parties involved if we didn't have to spend two full days driving there and back. Last, what kid doesn't love staying at a hotel? I can't say it is a favorite of mine but my kids love having breakfast buffet every morning, indoor pools and late night slumber parties. We had a great time visiting with cousins, siblings and grandparents and now it is back to regular life. 

One of the things I like best when returning home after a long trip (particularly car trips) is a little pampering. After being busy all weekend, braving cold weather and non-stop fun having I like a little R & R. As a mother those moments are brief but I find that R & R through the use of premium beauty products. It doesn't take a lot of extra time but it definitely provides results that feel great.

I was recently sent the ApotheCARE Essential Shampoo and Conditioner. They are a new premium beauty line that is offered from CVS. Made with specially selected ingredients ApotheCARE Essential products are inspired by nature and powered by science. This means you get the great natural scent of Rosehip Oil, Geranium and Aloe Vera along with results like dynamic volume and enhanced natural movement. The greatest part about this product is there are No Parabens, No Dyes and No Silicones. All you are getting is great fragrance with superior look and feel. The ApotheCARE Essentials Conditioner also includes distilled cactus milk, extracted Moroccan mint and steam distilled lavender. These products nourish and wrap around every strand of hair for premium hair fiber care.





Opening the ApotheCARE Essentials products in the shower is like taking a step into a luxury spa. The scent is reminiscent to expensive spa treatments which definitely makes your tiny little R & R moment feel even more special. The texture is smooth, thick and creamy which feels luxurious compared to inexpensive counterparts. In the end you are left with smooth, silky hair that looks better, smells great and feels voluminous. I can now check my R & R moment off my checklist. Now onto my other tasks.

You can pick up the premium ApotheCARE Essentials products from your local CVS. They are on limited release in store but you can definitely find them online at CVS.com.

#28DayChallenge With Olay

This post is sponsored by TapInfluence & Olay however all thoughts and opinions are my own. #28DayChallenge




Do you ever have those days where you look in the mirror and you are surprised at your reflection? It is when you really stop to take a good look at your reflections and staring back at you is a face you recognize with marks that you have never seen before. I get it, aging is a part of life and there is no way of stopping it and I am not necessarily trying to. What I do want is for time to slow down. For aging to slow down. I want to feel like life isn't flying by in the blink of an eye and I want to look at myself in the mirror without feeling like the years have slipped past undetected and the evidence has suddenly shown itself. Add four kids, lack of sleep and busy life to the mix and those smile lines, frown lines and all the lines in between start taking residence in your skin. Personally, I would like to give those lines an eviction notice.

That's where the Olay #28DayChallenge comes in. I have done this challenge before with great results and after a summer of sun damage and a fall of sleep deprivation my skin is begging for a little TLC. Give me a skin care program that is easy, effective and budget friendly so that I can fight back against time aging.



Below is an image that hasn't been retouched to remove those fine lines and wrinkles. When I smile my happiness is written all over my face and I am completely okay with that. Would I rather those lines be short stories instead of a novel? Yes, please. With the Olay #28DayChallenge I will be doing simple two step skin care system that will combat those signs of aging. An Advanced Anti-Aging Regenerating Cream Cleanser and a Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream two products that make up the #28DayChallenge. I use the cleanser and the moisturizer (which includes an SPF 30) in the mornings and in the evenings I use the cleanser, moisturizer and eye cream.



What I love about the Olay skin care regimen is how easy and simple it is while also being effective. I see results immediately. My skin instantly feels soothed, moisturized and hydrated which in return helps it look younger and glowing. Immediate results are always a bonus! The Micro-Sculpting Cream helps deliver visibly younger results and that is exactly the type of results I am looking for.



If you are in the market for improved skin or just want to change things up then this #28DayChallenge is the one for you. Pick up these products on your next trip to the grocery store. You can find them in the beauty aisle of your local major retailer and get yourself on the road to visibly younger looking skin. I'll see you there! ;)

Cute & Easy Hairstyle For Girls With Suave Kids

This post is sponsored by Mirum Shopper however all thoughts and opinions are my own. #SamsClubHairCollection

With the holidays here we are looking for easy (but cute!) hair solutions for my girls. We are always on the run so we want to make sure they look their best with the least amount of time invested. I'm not saying my girls are high maintenance, but they definitely have an opinion on how they want their hair done, how they want to dress and of course, what products they want to use. One product I never have to bargain to convince them to use is the Suave Kids Frozen Shampoo & Conditioner. It is a two-in-one product which means it saves time but it doesn't compromise on leaving their hair soft and smooth. Plus it is Dermatologist and Ophthalmologist tested to ensure that it is tear free and easy on the skin. My little sensitive souls are very unhappy when soap gets in their eyes so tear free is a must. 


One of my favorite go-to hairstyles for my girls are using cute oversized headbands. I quickly throw their hair into a pony tail and add the headband and voilá, cute hairstyle achieved. If I am feeling really ambitious I'll throw in a braid with the pony. Whoa, talk about increasing level of difficulty. (j/k) My girls love this style because they think it helps them look like JoJo Siwa. I know she's a Disney Popstar but I can't tell you much about her other than she wears a lot of hair bows LOL.


Trust me, it takes no convincing during bath time to get them to use these cute Elsa products from Suave Kids. The Suave Kids Disney Frozen Shampoo and Conditioner are always a favorite for my girls. Note: you'll probably hear a lot of singing in the bathroom thanks to this product. Thankfully Frozen tunes are some of our favorite tunes.



Speaking of saving time just ask who has two thumbs and loves saving time & money? This girl. Thanks to Sam's Club you can do both. You can pick up your favorite beauty products for the entire family at prices that are super accessible and affordable. The best part is you can use your Sam's Club Scan & Go App and/or the Club Pick Up to get your products easily, efficiently and without waiting in line. You can go one step further by using the Sam's Club Subscription Program to ensure you never run out of your favorite Unilever products. With the Sam's Club Subscription Program you'll have these products delivered to your door. Win/Win!

Axe & Caress At Sam's Club

This post is sponsored by Mirum Shopper however all thoughts and opinions are my own. #BetterTogetherSC



I am a mom of four kids and that means I can occasionally go crazy be busy keeping everyone and everything together. For instance, an afternoon at our house can consist of putting the baby down for a nap, oldest gets home, pick up the girls from school, take my middle to Activity Days, take my oldest to football, make dinner and feed baby, pick up oldest from football take him to basketball, return home to help younger girls finish homework and cleanup dinner, pick up oldest from basketball and return home for family scripture study and prayer before bed. Phew! That seriously makes me tired just looking at it. To say I need life hacks on how to make things run smoothly is an understatement. I need ALL the life hacks. One of my favorite most recently learned life hacks would be the Sam's Club Scan and Go App along with the Club Pick Up. I can get all of my favorite products in one place and as a mom of four, buying things individually is just not economically savvy, hence the beauty of Sam's Club.

And by beauty I really mean beauty. They have all of our beauty needs. My whole family smells great thanks to the AXE Black Fragrance and Caress Daily Silk Body Wash. The two products work great to complement each other and each has a unique scent that works great with the other.



My oldest is a huge fan of the AXE products (and let's be honest, what tween/teenager isn't?!) and my girls love the perfumed scent of the Caress Body Wash. Smelling good is the final key to the trifecta for these cute and smart kiddos. I mean...


Check out this video below and take a quick trip with us through Sam's Club and I will show you just how easy (and fun!) it can be to pick up your most needed beauty products from Sam's Club:




To find out more about these two great products you can click the image above. It is linked to the Sam's Club page which will guide you to finding your best scent. Or your kids' best scent. Or your husbands' best scent. Whatever scent you may be looking for. 

Now I can take one more thing off my to-do list to help make my life run a little smoother. That's a win.
