Back-to-School Accessories from Sugar N Spice ~ Review + Giveaway

Sugar N Spice Pendants Banner

Have you done all of your back-to-school shopping already?!?!  For me, it’s a fun time, but also a sad time, because it means summer is almost over and I am forced to give up so much time with my little ladybug.  Before I get too far into those emotions and start crying all over my keyboard, though, I’ll get back to the fun part of back-to-school shopping.

It’s always a special time for us to have some girl time, to find some outfits that make her feel like the 3rd grader that she is(3RD GRADE!?!?!?!?!?!?!), and to talk about what she’s looking forward to in the coming months.  This year, we spent a nice day at the mall, got some froyo, and then came home to accessorize the outfits that we got! :)

Lexi happens to be the granddaughter of some pretty stylish Grandmas, so she has quite the jewelry collection, but new to her inventory are a couple cool pieces from Sugar N Spice.  The shop features hand-crafted  pendants for girls of all ages.  Lexi and her friends are loving the Frozen pendants and their moms and I are loving the wine charms!! :)

Sugar N Spice Pendants collageAside from the fact that these pendants are super cute, I absolutely LOVE how affordable they are!!  At right around $5 per pendant, it is so easy to let your little girl show her individuality and let her jewelry match her mood!!  You can buy pendants and necklaces separate from each other, so it’s even more doable to buy a few pendants to change out with one necklace.

Whatever you chose to do, and however you and/or your little lady decide to rock these, there’s no doubt that they’ll turn heads.  Right now, they are a great finisher for those back to school outfits and in a couple months, they’ll be the perfect stocking stuffer!! Versatile, well-priced, and stylish.  That’s a WIN in my book!!

Like what you’ve seen??  Be sure to enter below for your chance to win a necklace for you or your little lady from Sugar N Spice!! :)

2 eggs; beaten
5 slices of turkey bacon; chopped
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 cup diced onion

3-D Fiber Lashes from Younique ~ Review + Giveaway

younique bannerHave you seen or heard about the latest in cosmetics??  Younique has taken skin care and make-up to the next level, and I for one am loving it!!

I had the opportunity to try the 3-D Fiber Lashes a month or so ago, and I cannot say enough about them!  They are easy to apply and even easier to remove, so you can wear them everyday and for any occasion.

10270864_10203374239255153_1654732008_oThe simple three-step process combines Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes.  The 3-D Fiber Lashes are water resistant, but as I said above, they wash off easily with warm water and facial cleanser at the end of the day.

The most powerful thing I can tell you here, is that I have spent a lot of my teenage and adult years searching for the ‘perfect’ mascara.  I have tried sooooooo many brands, so many techniques, and have spent different amounts of money on all of them.  With the 3-D Fiber Lashes, though, I just build upon my own lashes and I’m in control of just how glam I want to be :)

For everyday, I usually do just one quick coat of gel and fibers.  It’s fast and super easy, but the result is still far better than what I was getting with mascara.  When I want to accentuate my favorite feature, though, I take a little more time and build my lashes up a bit.  When I do that, I ALWAYS get stopped and complimented on how beautiful my eyes are!!

I’m sold on this brand and on these lashes in particular, but are you??  Younique has a ‘love it’ guarantee, so if you’d like to see just how amazing your eyes can be, click through the link above and order a set today!!  I am hosting a giveaway of my favorite lashes right now, too, and if you do place an order for any Younique product through the link above, you’ll get a bonus entry into the giveaway!!. Click through the rafflecopter link below, cross your fingers, and GOOD LUCK!!
