Beauties,

Earlier this summer, Boutique +, the plus size brand you may know from JCPenney, gifted me with two swimsuits from their recent collection.  I'd been waiting for my chance to wear one of the swimsuits and last week, I finally had my chance.  I went to a local pool and of course, rocked the two piece they sent me.  This two piece, which is 70% off right now, is so comfortable with just a hint of sexiness.  When I received the set, one of the things I loved most was the sheer panel along the top of the bottoms.  As I was waltzing around the pool in my swimsuit, I realized that one of the main things I felt that day had nothing to do with my swimsuit.


Beauties,

It has been six weeks since I went into my OBGYN's office and had my first IUD inserted.  I plan to talk about the why, the experience and of course, the after, but first...  Occasionally I do lifestyle posts outside of beauty and style because my overall focus is encouraging women and talking about real situations.  This is a post that I plan to keep it all the way real on and I hope you are open to us talking about birth control.  In fact, I did not realize that this would be something I would actually be sharing.


Beauties,

Last week, I had a customer walk up to my register with a strange look on her face.  If you do not know, I work in retail part time.  I asked her if everything was okay, but she seemed in a bit of a daze.  As I started ringing up her purchase, she shared with me that she was unsure about the red pants she was purchasing.  She thought they were a bit bold and wasn't sure how to wear them.  I gave her a few ideas, such as a chambray top or if she really wanted to be bold, pairing it with yellow.  She looked at me with horror when I mentioned yellow so I gave her a few more neutral suggestions.  It made me realize that although I like seeing red and yellow paired together, I don't remember ever rocking the combination myself.


I was asked by Carusele to participate in the #WalgreensBeauty campaign, sponsored by Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

Beauties,

Do you know what truly makes packing for trips easier?  Having your toiletry bag already together!  I learned this a few years ago when I was traveling almost every weekend.  It made packing so much easier because all I had to was get a few outfits together, throw my toiletry bag in and I was on my way.  Plus, with Walgreens, it's super easy to pack and keep your skin popping while you travel because they offer great beauty items for low prices and of course, travel sizes that are TSA approved for carry-ons!  Travel sizes one of the best things ever!


Beauties,

I have a simple question.  Can I go back to Charleston already?  I went to Charleston last week with my hubby for a quick getaway to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary and the trip went by entirely too fast.  We'd been wanting to check out Charleston for the last few years and I was so happy we were finally able to go.  Charleston is such a charming place.  Plus, with just a four hour drive from Greensboro, it was the ideal location for a change in scenery without being far from home.
