Hello and welcome!

Thanks for stoping by! That's me, and my super cute and spunky 1 year old, Nora. When we're not laying on the floor taking selfies, we also like to bake, take lots of pretty photos, and practice yoga. Aside from posting way too many pictures of Nora on instagram, I also take pretty wedding picures and make pretty baby items. So browse around, and keep up with all the latest.

Before we get too far into June, I thought I should do a Favorite Things post for this month! One of my all time favorite products for beauty is Burt’s Bees. If you haven’t heard of Burt’s Bees (perhaps you should come out from under that rock you are living under… kidding!) you should go over to their website RIGHT now and check them out! Their products are amazing!!!

A. Lip Balm. This is seriously the *B.E.S.T* lip balm in the world. Seriously. I have about a hundred tubes of this and keep them tucked in every single nook and cranny that I can think of, so that no matter where I am at any given moment, I have some chap stick if I need it. This is not an exaggeration. OK maybe its not 100 tubes… but I have multiple, and I DO stock my nooks and crannies.

B. Mama Bee Nourishing Body Oil. I use this as a face moisturizer because I’ve found that most lotions feel so heavy and greasy and even though this is an oil, its light, it absorbs into your skin super fast, and it has a very pleasant yet subtle lemon scent. I absolutely love this oil and use it religiously!

C. This After Sun Soother is great for those days when you get a little too much sunshine (great for this time of year!). Its a tad expensive, so I do use it sparingly, but with the aloe, it really does sooth your skin when you get a burn :)

D. Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion. This lotion is really light and it has a really pretty honey scent. It goes on supper smooth, and doesn’t leave a heavy greasy feeling (can you tell I don’t like greasy!??!)

E. Natural Toothpaste. Okay, I have to admit, this toothpaste was really weird when I first tried it. It’s thick. It takes a few seconds to really loosen up; its nothing like Colgate, or Crest, that’s for sure! As strange as it was the first few times I used it, I quickly grew to love it just as much as their other products. I used to use Tom’s of Maine for the longest time, and then saw this toothpaste in the Grocery store. As with most new Burt’s Bees products that I discover, I had to try it. Its definitely become a staple item. I even keep an extra tube in my cosmetic bag for when I go away for the weekend :)

F. Burt’s Bees Radiance line is awesome for women who aren’t as … :ahem: young as they’d like to be, and I LOVE their Exfoliating Body Wash. Now, I’m only 27, so I know I have nothing to complain about, but I like to think that if I start using their Radiance line *now*, then I’ll stay young looking forever! That’s the plan, anyway :)

Burt’s Bees uses as many natural ingredients as they can, and every products gives you a % of Natural content right on their product for you to see. So you know you’re using really healthy, really high quality products, and you’re not getting a lot of fillers and chemicals. That’s the biggest reason I continually use Burt’s Bees above other beauty care products out there. I guess you could say this is probably my 2nd biggest Lovemark (click here to read about my *BIGGST* Lovemark, and if you don’t know what a Lovemark is, there’s lots of good info about it there too!).
