DIY Shopkins Delish Doughnut Costume


DIY Shopkins Delish Doughnut Costume

I have a sweet spot for doughnuts – so when my daughter told me she wanted to be a Shopkins Delish Doughnut for Halloween, I was thrilled. Plus — we LOVE Shopkins! After not finding anything I liked in stores or online, I decided to make it myself.

Five on Friday

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend. For all my lovelies that had to work, I know your pain and hope you get your time off soon! It’s been a few weeks since I jumped on the Five on Friday train. I’m so glad to be back! Today I wanted to share a few goodies that I’ve discovered and have been loving and thought you may love too!


Navy had her first plane ride when we visited Florida last month and she did so well! I had searched for toddler traveling tips beforehand and on several lists I kept seeing LilGadgets Untangled Pro Premium Children’s Wireless Bluetooth Headphones . Y’all – if you are traveling with a child, I highly recommend these. They worked like a charm, easily fit into my bag, and there were no cords to get tangled. I linked the headphones and her i-Pad about a week in advance and let her wear them a few times so that she was comfortable with them. She watched Zootopia the whole plane ride home and was one happy camper!

How I’ve Been Whitening My Teeth

Teeth Whitening Smile Brilliant with Annie Young from Something About Navy


Who doesn’t like a bright, white smile?!

For as long as I can remember, I have been a little OCD about keeping my teeth white. And with being an avid coffee lover, I’m always looking for ways to combat its yellow staining tendencies. I’ve tried what feels like just about every type of teeth whitening product out there: the strips, the toothpaste, the mouthwash, the brush pen thing, the trays with the blue light thing – you get the gist. A few months ago I was looking into going to get my teeth professionally whitened at my dentist office but never got around to making the appointment. Then, ironically, SmileBrilliant! reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in trying out their professional teeth whitening system.

Kat Von D Beauty VoxBox Review

A couple of weeks ago I received the Kat Von D Beauty VoxBox from Influenster. I was SO excited when I saw that all the items in the box were from Kat Von D Beauty’s new Lock-it Collection. I had been hearing nothing but rave reviews on everything from this collection and was literally about to go buy a few items. In the box, I received two colors of Kat Von D Beauty’s new Lock-it Concealer Creme, the Lock-it Setting Powder, Lock-it Setting Powder Brush, and the Lock-it Edge Concealer Brush — all products I had been itching to try. (scroll down for more!)

Chelsea and Violet Floral Romper

I had been eyeballing this Chelsea & Violet floral romper for MONTHS and was so stoked when I saw it go on sale at Dillard’s. It has crochet details, a drawstring waist, and a hidden snap button front. I wore this out to dinner last night and paired it with my trusty lace-up sandals from Old Navy and a layered choker that I’ve been wearing on repeat.

Since I get asked where I found this romper every time I wear it, I figured I’d share but I can’t find it anywhere online now. So, I’ve linked several similar floral rompers (in a variety of price points) that are just as cute down below!
