Ology Detergent and MORE: Review

{I was sent this product for review curtsey of a Mom’s Meet group called ‘Mom Ambassadors’, however all opinions are my own}

How many of you moms are interested in safe, yet effective cleaning products with kids in the house? Come on, raise your hands! I know for me personally, I like a product that gets the job done, yet won’t be harmful for my kids. That’s exactly why I LOVED using the Ology products.

Ology is a brand specifically found at Walgreens. They pride themselves in everyday products free of harmful chemicals, no animal-testing, and being from Walgreens they are cost-effective! 
They offer laundry & cleaning supplies, household cleaning supplies, personal well-being products, and products for babies and kids. 

For review purposes, I was sent the All-Purpose Cleaner, the Laundry Detergent, and the Paper Towels. The product I loved the most was the All-Purpose Cleaner

The smell was awesome for being a cleaning product and I really loved how well it cleaned. I did my whole kitchen with this and it really did a great job. 

I also liked the detergent. I got the Ology Stain Fighting 2X Laundry Detergent
I loved that these also had no harsh chemicals in them. This laundry detergent is actually plant based which I found very cool. If you are in need of a HE compatible laundry detergent, this would be right up your ally! 

I also got to review the paper towels
Sadly, I didn’t enjoy the paper towels as much. They are 100% tree free and just simply didn’t get the job done for me. I like a tougher paper towel in my house because we have a lot of big spills and dirty messes. I felt this one broke too easily and didn’t withstand much. 

Overall I loved using these products. I loved knowing I was choosing a safe alternative when it came to cleaning products for my kids. Are you into products like this? Which one would you like to try the most?! Let me know if the comments below! 
I hope everyone is having a great Saturday and you enjoy the rest of your weekend. đŸ™‚

LifeVantage TrueScience: Review

{I am in no way affiliated with this company. This product was sent to me for review purposes, however all opinions are my own.}

I have absolutely loved my time using the LifeVantage TrueScience face wash! 
I will start off saying that each persons skin is different and has different skin care needs. I have relatively dry to combination skin. I also have large areas of discoloration. 
This is the description of the product from the LifeVantage website:
Introducing TrueScienceâ„¢ with enhanced Nrf2 technologies, a revolutionary beauty system proven in a clinical study to visibly address the signs of aging. This regimen offers instant and cumulative anti-aging benefits.”

I don’t think I have signs of aging, so I didn’t see any huge changes in that area. I did however see my annoying breakouts almost stop completely. I break out heavily around my “monthly time”, but I had virtually zero breakouts in between my cycle while using this product! 

Another amazing thing about this product was the smell. Y’all, this stuff smells AMAZING. Just so refreshing and clean smelling. I loved that when I used this product, it didn’t bother my eyes and actually helped when removing my eye makeup. When using other skincare products, I hate when products leave a “burning” sensation. This didn’t do that at all. My skin felt clean, hydrated, and overall healthy. 

I really don’t have anything bad to say about this face wash. 
LifeVantage has a long running history with their “Protandim”, and now this face wash. 
If you are someone who is looking for a face care system that will help with aging, I would definitely recommend this brand. It is gentle, yet productive. 

If you have ANY further questions about this product, Protandim, or LifeVantage as a whole, please get ahold of my friend Bailey Michael. She is a rockstar with this company and it seriously blows me away what her and her husband accomplish together.

Wedding Ceremony

My whole wedding day was perfection, but if we’re being honest the ceremony was the one thing I was completely terrified about. Walking down the aisle, being in front of people, TALKING IN FRONT OF PEOPLE?! Not my strong suit. I was terrified of every unrealistic thing out there. Thankfully, everything went so effortlessly perfect.

The weather was perfect that day. The venue couldn’t have looked more beautiful.
The guests were amazing. And overall, I got to marry my best friend.

Our ceremony took place on a golf course which I thought was absolutely breathtaking. The view behind us was gorgeous and the grounds of the golf course all together were amazing.

This is another post that doesn’t require much explaining because well, the pictures do that all too well. These are a few of my favorites from the ceremony.

(See these ladies in the back? They literally sat and watched my entire wedding from when we had our “first look”, all the way through our pictures, and till the end of the ceremony. GO AWAY!)

Why Little Girls Need Daddies

Its crazy how much can change in just one year. 

Before M came along baby girl hated bugs, dirt, getting hurt, pretty much….anything and everything.
I wish I was exaggerating when I say that, but i’m not. 
I remember when M and I first started dating and we were at a pool party with a bunch of his friends. Baby girl would not stop SCREAMING because there were flies. FLIES PEOPLE
I surely thought he would be done with me after that. 
Who wants to date a chick with a kid who is afraid of everything on the planet?! 
Thankfully, she has come a LONG way from that moment and I owe all of it to M. 
Sure, I did a great job as a parent on my own. But you see when there’s only a mom in the picture, things stay at princesses and pink butterflies, bugs are gross and things stay clean. Although I knew bugs and dirt and flies weren’t scary, baby girl didn’t. I truly feel she needed a man in her life to really remind her things are okay.
Bugs are okay, dirt is okay, and monsters under the bed aren’t real. 
It didn’t happen overnight by any means. The past year has been a huge growing and learning process for us all. Sometimes it kills me to know daddy is making her “tough it out”, when all I want to do is run in a kiss her boo boo’s all better. 
She needed someone to show her how to play in the dirt. 
She needed someone to show her how to kill bugs. 
She needed someone to ride piggy back with. 
She needed someone to make her be tough. 
I’m not saying I didn’t do these things as a mom, however having a male around truly changed the way baby girl acted. She got a different perspective on things. She had another mindset when it came to certain situations. 
I could have never imagined so much would change in a little girl over the course of a year. 
She loves playing in the garden and helping shovel dirt with her daddy. 
She barely cries when she gets hurt because she knows she needs to be a “tough girl”.
She loves to try new things and loves when daddy is there helping her. 
She really really has evolved as a child having a full time dad in her life. 
Each and every day I think about how blessed we are. I know not every situation is like ours. I know not every man out there is like M. He truly is the best dad though, and he is the greatest thing to ever happen to us. Thank you, M. You have given baby girl something that I could have never given her on my own. You are our missing puzzle piece. I will never be able to say thank you enough for that. 
Happy Fathers Day, baby. XO.

Mexico Will Always Be Special

Mexico will always hold a special place in my heart. 

This past weekend we went back to Mexico, a year after this happened
I can’t believe it’s already been a whole year since M asked the big question.
This trip to Mexico was also special because it was the first time baby girl got to join us. 
She was so excited and loved every second of it. 
There isn’t much to “write” about because Mexico is Mexico.

It’s already time for Fathers Day?! Where is this year going?!

(I know, everyone says that all the time)

Alexandra over at Man Crates contacted me and prompted me to write a post bragging on my dad a little bit. Seeing as that’s the easiest thing to do with my dad, I didn’t hesitate at all to say “Yes!”
Man Crates is doing a #DadBrag campaign for fathers day to showcase how awesome all our dads truly are! 

My dad has taught me a lot in my short lifetime so far. We’ve had our ups & downs but one thing remains the same: he is always one of my best friends. I grew up in a Military family. Whether he knows it or not, my dad taught me a huge appreciation for both our country and our military members. 

I’ve been told before that I had it “easy” as a kid of a military member. Although I don’t know what its like to be married to someone deployed, I do know what its like having a parent deployed. I am so thankful my dad has returned home each time safely. Through each deployment I have learned new things about myself and life as a whole. Also with each deployment, I have learned how much each of our service members put on the line for us. 

I am so thankful for my dad and the life lessons he has taught me. 
I am so thankful that he instilled in me an appreciation for this country. 
I am so thankful he is my dad. 

What awesome things has your dad taught you in life?
What is the best quality about your dad? Let me know or share using #DadBrags!
