BabyLit. Ah. Where to begin? Saylor and I have been reading BabyLit books together since she was a tiny little baby. A family member had gifted us a few her first Christmas and I could instantly tell that these books were different. Not just because of their perfect size, how well they are made, but they hit something within Saylor! By the time she was a year, I swear she had Alice in Wonderland and Romeo & Juliet memorized. #babygenius! I’m just kidding…I know it has everything to do with the way these books are designed specifically for our little ones. Fun, creative images in bright colors. Dark, big and bold print, in simple words for kids to say and remember.
Are you a fan? I am! Some are SO expensive, I have a hard time paying $100+ for something that is basically a photo prop…sorry but that is the truth!
There are some really beautiful ones out there, and I’m here to share some of my favorites, in a variety of price ranges. My sister in law scored one on sale at Cotton On for only $10 and so kindly gave it to me, so that is the one we have been rocking!
Love this print from Cotton:On. If you sign up for their email letter, you get 30% off, too!
I may sound repetitive bringing up Salis Skincare again, but I don’t care! When I find a good thing, I need to share it. And Laura has so generously allowed me to give away $75 shop credit to one lucky winner…see my IG on how to enter. Salis offers the best natural skincare products, and they have changed my skin. I went to see Laura back in February for a facial and all around skin consultation. She suggested I use her Lavender and Jasmine Scrub, Blackhead Removal Mask, take Mineral Support, and try and be aware of what foods I eat that may affect my skin.
As promised, I am here to share my all time favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe with you! This has came after years of picking and choosing what really does make up the best cookie (and with help of my mother in law). Every single thing that goes into a cookie can change the flavor and consistency, and these are my personal favorite things. I love lots of chocolate, salt, and slightly undercooked.
The first trick is SEA SALT. Sprinkle some right on top of the dough balls before you pop them in the over. LIFE CHANGING.
Does anyone else suffer from acne? I didn’t really start having it until just over a year ago. And let me tell you, it is the worst. Not many people know just how bad it really was, thankfully right now it is 75% better than what it was. I’ll go more into depth in a later post. I was getting bad hormonal acne around my chin, acne all over my back, it was so bad. It made me so self-conscious. I still am, to be honest. I only wear certain clothes, very very rarely have no face makeup on, it is horrible! I have tried everything. Not eating certain foods, this and that face wash, this cream, that pill, everything besides Accutane, I’ve done it! I’m here to tell you that it can get better! Honestly I am not positive if it is time, or products, or a combination of both that have helped, but something has changed. I’ve been religious to a few products over the last year, and I’m here to share.
Who has heard of Savvy Curls? If you haven’t, I feel sorry for you! But don’t worry, I am here to give you the honest truth about them, and to show you my results.
Savvy Curls are hair wraps made with thermal retentive and curl forming materials that work in conjunction with the heat zone on your scalp to produce “no heat” curls. It is genius! I was intrigued and knew I had to give it a try! My hair doesn’t hold a curl very well, so I was very curious to see if this product would make a difference.
I love a good makeup brush, and Morphe is one of my favorite brands. You honestly DO NOT need to spend a ton of money to get great brushes! Their Elite Collection is currently 40% off while supplies last. Here are some of my favorites…
The E31 Deluxe Flat Buffer — what I use to get a full coverage look! Also great for building.
The E58 Angled Buffer Powder/Contour Brush.
The E34 Tapered Blush Brush.
The E43 Flat Brow Brush.
The E14 Oval Shadow Brush…great for building, also!
I had a pretty good day shopping today…but then again, when isn’t shopping a good thing? I got some sweet deals and I wanted to share! I hit up Nordstrom Rack and Ulta, located conveniently down the street from me! You know I came home and price matched everything, to be sure I’m getting the best price.
Here are my goodies from the Rack…
I’ve been wanting a neutral colored cross body, and found just what I was looking for in this Kate Spade!
I found these ADORABLE gold sea wees, size 1, for only $10! No, I’m not pregnant, and they definitely don’t fit Saylor, but I had to have them at that price! The best I could find online was at diapers.com…I found code RMNDIAPERS20, and if you spend more than $49 they’ll ship for free.
For those of you who follow me on IG, (@robynmeacham), you know that we LOVE Disneyland. We have annual passes and were super sad when we moved to Utah. Lucky for us, we have family in Southern California that we visit often so we are still able to use them! It has been so fun watching Saylor grow and become familiar with characters and rides, and get excited about things.
Today I’m going to talk about a few of my personal “must do’s” when going to D-Land. I am in no way a Disney expert, but I like to think I know a little more than some! 🙂
If anyone is like me, you find yourself scouring the internet for things you don’t really need. I love finding a good deal, especially with baby gear!
Britax has been our go to car seat brand since Saylor was a baby. I like the way they look, but more importantly, they are among the safest out there. Their new “click tight” bases can even last 10 years!
I found a great deal for the Britax B-Agile B Safe travel system in Sapphire on diapers.com, on sale for only about $335 shipped! Use code THOUSANDS at checkout, and you’ll get up to $35 off.
