{What I Wore} Rockin' Fall Floral Joggers

When I chose these pants, I did so mainly because I realized that while I own lots of floral pieces, I didn't own a pair of floral pants.

I love these poppy print joggers. They are so comfortable and the print is so gorgeous. I also love these rose print joggers. These are both tall length as I prefer them over the shorter versions.

Joggers: Dorothy Perkins c/o | Peplum Faux Leather Jacket: Kohl's 
 Felt Floppy Fedora: Old Navy | Shoeties: Shoemint (sold out last seen here
Backpack: Deux Lux (similar)

{Life} Sundays Are Made For...

Happy Sunday Lovelies!

Normally on Sundays I like to sleep in but today I got out of bed early & actually was in the mood to be domestic ��. 

And this case of domesticity had me doing something that I never want to do, the laundry.

Normally Joe will lug it downstairs but today I am on my own, so I went with what could only be described as "fall fever" and did it myself.

As a reward, I made myself an easy breakfast that all the fixings of turned out to be from Trader Joe's.

                           

These butters are so good, especially the fig one. 

And if you know me & my Starbucks habits then you know chai is my thang, so I am always buying any that I see.

This chai is very sweet and not in the Teavana Oprah Chai sweet kinda way (which I LOVE) but although it could use some spicier spices, its not bad.

And as an extra BONUS, I checked out the latest sale @ Eloquii 

BOGO free dresses & skirts! Gahhhh...

I may or may not have snagged these two �� (ps I am writing this post on my phone, hence the emojis that don't show up properly on blogger...#sideeye google)

                                 


                                        

Next on the agenda is a trip to the store because I am making dinner for Joe for once (yeah, I did say "fall fever" didn't I??!! )

HAPPY SUNDAY!! 

p.s - I just got an email that my FAVORITE LIPPIE from this post is back in stock! YES, I am reaping so many rewards today LOL

{Featured} A Pair For Every Ocassion With U by Kotex® #sp

the content and opinions expressed here are all my own ;). More on my sponsored posts policies here.

Raise your hand if you too have different pairs of undies for different occasions. 

I have the pretty pairs that I wear when I am feeling all cute and feminine that add that little extra something, something.


And I also have my full coverage gym undies, you know the ones that aren't necessarily frilly lil thangs but they do their job by not bunching while I am trying to get my burn on.


And of course I also have the ones that are seamless and disappear under my more body conscious pieces while also holding things in place.


And while all of these undies play different roles and some are cuter than others, I want to make sure that during that time of the month, I am wearing the right protection to keep them all soil free.

And because every month can require a little something different when it comes to flow & ahh...capture, it's nice to be able to have more than one pad option to handle the (hopefully short lived) job at hand.


So today I am sharing another favorite from the U by Kotex w/3D Capture Core line. This time I want to talk a little about the U by Kotex® Clean Wear® Ultra Thin Pads. This is a thin, soft pad that lays really well in your undies and of course has the bonus of  the 3D Capture Core technology

It is a pad that can used on lighter flow days like maybe towards the end of your cycle or even if you wear a pad daily and want a one that is slightly thicker than a liner that protects your undies and helps to keep you drier.


And because U by Kotex® is confident that you will love the protection that comes from their 3D Capture Core line and find the perfect match for your needs, they are offering you a free multi-sample pack.

{Featured} Celebrating My Daughter's Independence! #ValueCards #CollectiveBias #shop

I always tell people that my main goal as a mother was to raise my daughter to be independent. So needless to say, I want to celebrate the fact that at 20 years of age, she has been consistently working since she was 18 and will soon be moving into her own apartment.

I wanted to let her know how proud I am with the perfect greeting card and some pamper me goodies.

I remember moving into my own first apartment at the age of 19 and how exciting it can be and I also know how challenging it has been for her to find just the right place.
 
And I think we all know how stressful the actual moving can be. Right?

Well my cure all for stress & anything else that ails me, is usually a good long soak in a warm, fragrant bath.

So, to help her relieve whatever post move stress she may have once she gets settled in, I wanted to put together a little housewarming gift with a few "bath therapy" essentials for relaxation.



I have written before how much I miss the ritual of sending & receiving greeting cards, so I definitely wanted to include one with the goodies.

So, I headed to Walmart & was honestly somewhat surprised at the huge selection of $.47 and $.97 cents value cards that Hallmark has. 



I ended up getting the super cute card above because it says exactly what I want to say to her, Way to Go Kiddo! You did it! Your Mama is proud! You better had (LOL..joking...well kinda)




I packed it along with some bath salts, lotions, a candle, a bath brush and sponge in a cute fabric basket that she can use for storage later.

And while I love social media & the birthday tweets, etc, an actual greeting card still brings the biggest smile to my face when I receive one, so I had to snag several copies of this card because I know I am not the only one who feels that way and it says Happy Birthday so perfectly.




And besides these, I also picked up quite a few others to celebrate fall (my favorite time of year) and the upcoming holidays.  



Do you celebrate life's milestones & holidays with greeting cards?  

I am looking forward to getting back to doing this so much more often. I truly miss the connection that comes from taking a little time to select the perfect card and letting others know that you are thinking about them.
