Introducing Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap by Dial® + GIVEAWAY {CLOSED}



After finally receiving a few days of warmth and sunshine here, the three of us were eager to get outside and DO something. My husband spent his weekend getting our lawn in tip-top shape, I've been pulling weeds, and our daughter has been swinging herself silly in the backyard and playing with friends. Needless to say, we've all been pretty grubby at the end of the day and our hands aren't necessarily in the best shape. We've all got dirt under our fingernails, blisters from working and playing hard, and dry spots from this crazy winter we've had. This was the perfect time for NEW Dial® Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap to show up on our doorstep. 



NEW Dial® Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap is the newest member of the Dial® Boutique Collection Hand Soap line, bringing luxury to your hand washing experience. With an indulgent scent inspired by freshly cut Sugar Cane, this premium formula with gentle micro-scrubbers cleanses deeply while moisturizing and smoothing skin. 
The Boutique Collection Hand Soap provides:

  •  Vibrant scents
  •  Refreshing moisture
  • Gentle micro-scrubbers 
A deep cleansing formula help give you clean, healthy hands and skin.  
Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Micro-Scrubber

Moisturizing formulas with skin conditioners hydrate your skin and visibly improve skin dryness while micro-scrubbers help gently remove dirt from your hands to leave them feeling smooth and refreshed. 
I personally love the gentle polishing action of the micro-scrubbers -- smoothing out all of the dry spots on my hands with each use. This is a luxurious feeling soap, too -- thick, rich, and full of refreshing moisture. 


With a completely new bottle and design with rich colors, you can add a personal touch of style to your home. As you can see, the new Dial® Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap matched my kitchen perfectly!

With it's effectiveness, gentleness, and affordability, I'd have to say that Dial® Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap is the perfect family soap for us.

Dessange: The Holy Grail of Hair Care


Holy Grail of Hair Care? 

I must be exaggerating, right? Wrong.

My daughter's thick, tangle-prone hair has her in tears and me at my wit's end most mornings.
I feel like I've tried every lotion, potion, detangling spray, and special brush on the market, but none of them have ever worked very well. All of that changed when I received the Dessange VoxBox from Influenster.

I had big plans to use this on my own color-treated, heat-styled, ultra-thick and super long hair (and I did), but I also figured I had nothing to lose by using it on my daughter's hair, too. What a difference this stuff makes! No more tangles, no more tears. No kidding.


DESSANGE Paris introduces Oleo Miracle Collection, a hair care line infused with nutrients from nature's most precious oils. Bolstering delicious notes of orange, gardenia petals, and sandalwood, the reparative collection works to help transform hair suffering from thermal, chemical and environmental damage for a visibly softer, healthier look. Offering intense nourishment, the formulas are infused with three key natural oils: Argan Oil, Camelia Oil, and Pracaxi Oil, leaving hair smooth, bouncy, and manageable. 


Our first shampoo infused with micro-drops of precious oils, the lightweight formula offers supreme nourishment to hair without weighing it down. 


The second step to the Oleo Miracle ritual, this shine-boosting conditioner repairs the external layer of the hair's fiber for healthier, restored strands.
This is my favorite product out of the three. It is so thick and rich. It leaves my daughter's hair so silky. After shampooing, I just apply a quarter-sized amount of conditioner to my daughter's hair and then comb it with a wide-tooth comb. After combing, I give it a quick rinse and then allow it to air-dry. 

After her hair is dry, we add a few drops of DESSANGE Replenishing Oil after styling/brushing.


With just a few drops, this leave-in treatment nourishes dry, damaged hair without leaving a greasy residue.

I cannot say enough good things about this particular line from DESSANGE Paris. This is our go-to hair care line from here on out. Run to your nearest Target and grab the entire Oleo Miracle Treatment line. You won't be disappointed!

Stitch Fix #9-- Fun Spring Pieces + an EXCITING announcement from Stitch Fix


I've said it before and I'll say it again: every single time this little box shows up, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. It's been almost a year since my first Stitch Fix and I'm still loving it. 

 This month I specifically asked for pieces that flaunted my shoulders, cute casual tops, and maybe a dress/skirt or two. We've got several super-fun trips coming up and I wanted some fun, flirty pieces to pack. I also asked my stylist to please reference my Pinterest board
Here's what I received:

{THML Howard Embroidered Tie Neck Top $48}
THML Howard Embroidered Tie Neck Top

How perfect is this for an outdoor concert? I mean!
 I love it paired with distressed boyfriend jeans or cut-off denim shorts. 
Keeping this one for sure because hashtag black is my love language.

{TCEC Roxanna Chevron Open Knit Cardigan $58}

I've been asking for a neutral cardigan for the past several months now and finally received one!
Cute pattern, light-weight enough for spring/summer, but warm enough for fall. 
I'm still on the fence with this one simply because my record with cable-knit hasn't been stellar-- 
one wrong move by me and I've snagged it. #tragic

{Olive & Oak Astelli Colorblock Dress | $68}


I'm not a huge fan of navy and purple, but oh my, how darling is this dress?!
I loved the cut, the fabric, and the length was perfect!
Unfortunately, it was a little too big/loose in the waist. 
The color blocking is so vibrant and perfect for Spring. 
And those pleats! 
This picture does those pleats absolutely zero justice. 
Trust me, they are lovely.
I styled this with a dark denim vest and flats. 
I think it'd be adorable with cowboy boots, too!

{Pixley Tenille Mini Skirt | $58}
This skirt is perfect for an outdoor concert or date night!
I've got it folded over here, just FYI, it hits me right above the knees and I'm 5'3".
The pattern is so fun! It's printed on the front and solid black in the back.
Very flattering, but a little too big on me. 

{Papermoon Nedal Lace Yoke Blouse | $44}
Does this top not just scream Spring?!
Beautiful pale pink/blush color with delicate floral lace accents.
Lightweight and flowy.

Now let's talk about this exciting announcement from Stitch Fix. You ready?

First up, they are now offering styling for pregnant Mamas. 

Cute maternity clothes shipped right to your door! I remember being eleventy months pregnant and trying to shop for something cute to wear. I also remember it being ZERO fun. Let Stitch Fix help! Make sure to update your style profile with your due date.

And secondly, they are now offering petite sizes! This is such fantastic news!

New Dial® Miracle Oil Body Wash + GIVEAWAY

Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash

Raise your hand if you're #SoOverWinter 

While our weather in Texas doesn't even remotely compare to what's going on in the Northeast, it is cold here. And we Texans quite simply don't do cold. We've got our heat cranked full blast and that means dry, cracked, and itchy skin for all. 

We were going through lotion like crazy until we switched to new Dial® Miracle Oil Body Wash. 

Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash


New Dial® Miracle Oil Body Wash is infused with caring Marula oil for beautifully, soft skin. This restoring body wash is formulated with Micro Oil Technology for a luxurious, clean-rinsing lather that leaves skin feeling clean, soft and smooth. It also has a fantastic scent. To me, it smells lightly floral mixed with sweet vanilla. 

{Look at that lather!}

It's even gentle enough to use on my daughter's sensitive, eczema-prone skin, which makes it perfect to use as family body wash or for bubble bath fun! 



Now for the giveaway:

Thanks to the generous folks at Dial®, 1 lucky winner will receive 2 FREE product coupons for Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash.
