the pioneer woman

I am so excited for the launch of the new kitchenware line that Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, designed exclusively for WalMart!  I have been perusing some of the pieces online this morning and thought that I should just go to WalMart and check them out in person–Unfortunately, my local WalMart apparently doesn’t carry any of this collection!–I don’t know if this is unique to my local store, so I guess I will be online shopping for any items that I want.  As a side note, one thing that you can do is purchase the products online and then pick them up in your local store if you want to see them in person before you purchase them.

I just love all the bright colors, floral prints, and special details these kitchen items have!  I have a lot of pieces from Anthro and Crate and Barrel in my kitchen and I feel like The Pioneer Woman pieces will really mix in well with the things that I already own!  Here is what is currently in my shopping cart!

july & august 2015 favorites


July flew by so fast I did not get a chance to do a Favorites post. So, I decided to combine July & August favorites to share all the things I have been loving this Summer. I hope everyone is having a wonderful September so far. September is one of my favorite months. Fall is right around the corner and my hubby and I celebrate our Anniversary on September 5th (this year will be 5 years).

Onto my favorites:

Sara Happ The Lip Slip – This is my new favorite lip gloss. It is the perfect shade of pale pink and has just the right amount of shimmer. It smells wonderful and comes in the most beautiful packaging. I absolutely love this stuff.


Joseph pita’s – These are absolutely amazing!!! They are only 60 calories and 4g of net carbs per pita. I have not bought bread since I discovered these and they have literally been the staple of my diet. I have found them at Publix but my sister has managed to find them at Walmart as well.


iphone 6 – I finally upgraded my iPhone after my husband absolutely insisted and I must admit I am so glad he did. He didn’t like my phone dying and not being able to hold a charge. My new iphone is great and it is so nice not to have to constantly worry about my battery dying. The camera is also so much better than the one on the iPhone 5.

tassel keychain – I love this tassel keychain and it just makes me happy every time I grab my keys. I have a serious gold dot obsession. I was torn between the cheetah print and the gold dot and I put both on my birthday wish list and I am so happy my sister picked the gold dots.

kate spade card holder – I love the bright pink color and I only keep my driver’s license and cards that I use most frequently in here and it makes changing purses so easy. It also surprisingly holds quite a bit. There is a section in the center that I keep cash and a couple band aid’s and then there are 3 card slots on the back.


These are just a few of my favorite things (now I have that Mary Poppins song in my head). Hope you enjoy seeing what I love each month. Cheers to September!

beach waves

I hope you all are having a great week! I finally decided to try out the Oribe Après Beach spray from my August Birchbox! I know it is almost September but better late than never, right? What I did for my beachy look was shampoo and condition as normal, then I generously applied the Oribe Après Beach wave and shine spray to my damp, brushed hair. I allowed my hair to air dry. After it was dry, I brushed it and then added some soft curls to the ends with my 1.5 inch curling iron to give it a more polished look. It would have been great without the curling, but I wanted to look more put together for my night out with my hubby! Here’s the finished product:

It added so much shine and texture to my hair and also smelled amazing! I think I may consider purchasing the full sized bottle when my sample runs out! 

Happy Thursday!
