Tinted Lip Balm with SPF

Hey there!! Colleen here!! Recently my cousin recommended I try and tell you all about the Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm. Well, I did and used it everyday on my vacation. The verdict? I loved it. I suffer from permanent dry, peeling lips. I use lip balm every day and then layer a lip gloss over it. This can become thick and sticky feeling, which I hate.

Shop it here!

This product softens your lips as soon as you put it on. And they stay this way even after the lip balm wears off. This best part is that they offer it with tints, so you can add color to your lips without all layering. There are about 6 colors to choose from and they are truly just a tint, not a solid color. Very subtle. In addition to all that it has SPF 20, so your lips are always protected from the sun! This has now been added to my daily routine!

Swim Sale for the 4th of July @Target

Happy 4th of July! Hope you are able to enjoy this holiday outside and maybe even at the beach or pool!

If you are still in the market for new swimsuits for the family, I can’t rave enough about Target swimsuits! They are so great that me and the kids sported them for our recent beach trip.

The fit is great. They offer different silhouettes for all body types. This is helpful for both of my kids especially since different cuts fit my daughter better than others. My son is on the tall and skinny side and the board shorts stay up great even when he’s jumping in the waves or off the diving board.

Quality and value is top notch. I wash them in garment bags in the washer and air dry. They hold up all season. The kids out grow their suits before they even start to look too worn. 

Through the 4th all Target swim is on sale! Ladies and kids is 20% off with code SWIM

Versatile Amazon Dress!

My latest Amazon purchase was a huge hit! (most of the time its 50/50) This Button Front Dress surprised me, as I was not sure if I was going to like it. First of all the buttons are faux. This is huge because it means you don’t have to worry about gaping, one of the reasons I have stayed away from this spring/summer trend. It is a midi length, which means it hits between the knee and mid calf. I happen to love this length! The last feature I am loving about this dress is that it is not too low cut. It actually hits pretty high on the chest, so makes it a great option to wear to work! Oh and I forgot the absolute best part!! It is $18.99! That’s right!! $18.99!! AND comes in 29 colors, stripes & prints! (I am wearing color 25-white)

Summer KidPik Life Saver!

For those of you who have been following us, you know my love for Kidpik for my daughter. For those who are new to Rockstar Moms, well you are in for a treat!

In an effort to help make our very busy Mom lives as easy as I can, Knowing that every season my Isabella will be receiving this box full of super fun fashion, shoes, and accessories is a life saver. I don’t always have the time to keep up with her growth spirts and who doesn’t love a good subscription box!?  The fun and suspense of seeing what’s inside!

When we found Kidpik, a subscription box for girls sizes 4-16, we just HAD to try it. We have been subscribing to Kidpik now for about 3 years and absolutely love it!  It is so much fun for her to open and know that if she loves the items she can keep them and if she does not, well then, they can be returned with no obligation to anything. Best part is the shipping is free and free for the returns too!

First, let’s start with how Kidpik works:

When you go to the Kidpik site you set up an account.  You will need to enter things, such as, address, credit card info, when you would like to receive your picks.  You can receive them as little as once per year or as often as 1 per month! Then your daughter will get to set up her profile (this is the fun part).  She will be able to control telling Kidpik what her favorite colors are, rank how “sparkly” she is, choose from pre-set outfits what she likes the best, and also what stores she likes to shop at.  This helps them choose the picks for her boxes that fit her style. She will need to update this profile for each season and you just need to remember to update her sizes as she grows!

It is very important to note that there is zero obligation to keep anything you receive in your box.  There are also no shipping fees to receive or return. You can keep everything, pick and choose what you want to keep , or send it all back!

In an average box you will receive on 7 items, that make about 4-5 outfits.  This may include dresses, skirts, pants, tops, shoes, accessories, and always a “Gift for you” that you can keep even if you send everything else back.

The box will arrive looking like this:

 

It will be addressed to your daughter.  It is sooooo exciting for Isabella when she comes home from school and sees this box at our door step!

When she opens the box everything is wrapped up beautifully and some items are in these amazing reusable drawstring bags (which I use when we travel for toiletries or shoes).

Isabella’s box came with a pair of cut off denim shorts, a T-shirt , 1 skirt, 1 dress, a bathing suit (Bella’s fab item), pair of ADORABLE sandals, a belt bag and her “gift” of a super secure LOVE bracelet or she choose to wear it as an anklet. In the past the “gift” has been patches, pins, hair ties, or even jewelry. Oh! Another super fun item that came in this box is this magazine! It is full of articles, games, puzzles, and beauty diy’s.

Her try on session! Needless to say she is keeping everything, again!!

Now for the details:

The price points for this box ranged from $9.99 for the Belt bag to $29.50 for the dress.  A very important note is that if you keep everything you get 30% off the total purchase, and this is for every box.  So to keep this entire box will be $102. We received 7 items so that is $14.57 per item, on average.

Another very important note is that if you do not want to keep all the items but, sometimes, it is less expensive to buy everything and get the 30% off.  You can donate the items you do not want to keep by paying for everything, sending back the item you do not want to keep in the pre-paid shipment bag and Kidpik will donate the items to girls in need in the community around them.

From what I have seen so far in the 3 years we have been receiving boxes is that this company delivers quality clothing at a great value and cares about the community around them.

Oh!! One more very important note is that the actual boxes are great to reuse for absolutely anything.  Isabella uses them to store her dolls, shopkins, play school supplies……the options are endless!😁

Last Short Try ON! American Eagle!!

The last stop on my “looking for shorts that look good on me” journey was #AExME. I really wanted to try their Midi Short that I have heard great things about. My local store only had one style of the Midi Short to try however….. But I will say that these are probably my favorite destructed short of all the denim shorts I tried. It was definitely worth finding!

Also, you all know how much I love that basic tee from a certain big box retailer, but this camo tee is a great not so basic style. The fit is super cute, the feel is SUPER soft, and the sleeve cuff detail is adorable!!

Shop both below! (commission links)
