Lipstick, Heels & a Baby

Mom's Stain Fighting Best Friend

Thursday, September 3

As a mom of boys I know the importance of having an extra pair of clothes with me at all times for them as well as a pack of Shout® Wipes!

Popsicle drips, grass stains, ketchup on the chest, and pureed sweet potatoes are a regular for us to have on our clothes, until I discovered a mom's best friend! 

I swear by Shout® Wipes for the spit up and whatever other mess ends up on my shoulder as well as on their chest! 

We all know my outfit posts would not be as cute if I had sweet potato hand prints on my shoulder! Did you know that twenty two percent of people avoid wearing their favorite clothes if there is even a chance it could get a stain? That would be every single day for me! Shout® has been a product that fashionistas have trusted for years to help them maintain some of their favorite items.

For all the other moments when we get home we have  Shout® Trigger Triple-Acting Stain Remover and Shout® Advanced (for the nitty gritty)! I should probably set them by my front door, haha!  I always go straight to the laundry room with the diaper bag and start pre-treating everything. My husband has even gotten into the habit of asking me to "Shout® things." "Hey babe, can you Shout® this" is heard regularly through our house! We go through a full bottle a month! My boys along with most other kids go through at least two outfits a day! Hey, Shout® saves a lot of clothes though!

The Shout® Advanced Gel contains 70 percent more stain-fighting power than the leading laundry pre-treater for the tough stains!

Quick Tip: Shout® Color Catchers are crucial for black denim!!!!

Wednesday, September 2

Live Well 30A is a concierge brand that will basically provide you with any service you can think of. Bike, paddle board, kayak, and golf cart rentals to airport shuttling, catering and even babysitting. Live Well 30A has you covered. We all feel so blessed to live in our paradise on the gulf coast and Live Well 30A loves going above and beyond to help make your vacation, or for locals, your night or weekends go that much smoother! 
Our family (minus Walker because I didn't want to have to worry the whole time) went out on the water with Live Well 30A for a night full of paddle boarding, kayaking and dinner on the beach around a camp fire. It was Braydon's first time kayaking and let's just say, we have a natural! He loved it! Our dinner was absolutely amazing, it was catered by a local chef and was so fresh and delicious! The vibe was so fun and relaxed with the crew taking care of everything. Bonfire was going, music was playing and food was fantastic!

Get Your Summer Hair Healthy For Fall

Tuesday, September 1

Did you know, scalp skin is actually the same skin that we have on our arms, legs and the rest of our body – it has the same function and structure. You wouldn’t (or shouldn’t!) skip cleansing and moisturizing the skin on your face and body, so the same care should be applied to your scalp. With fall quickly approaching, now is a good time to start thinking about your skin and hair so that it stays healthy all fall and winter long! Like skin, weather can also have a strong effect on our scalps. As seasons change so do our skin cells and hair cycle – in fact, studies have shown that seasonality can cause shedding especially in fall. I started using CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ Intense Hydration about two months ago. I actually was first intrigued by this product because of its amazing smell, but, by using this amazing duo, hair is resilient to dryness for 24 hours of soft, hydrated hair. It is infused with cactus extract, a known hydrator; clinically proven to help replenish the scalp with essential hydration with regular use; and leaves hair beautifully strong from root to tip.  It is formulated with Nutrium 10™, an advanced moisture complex of vitamins and nutrients including vitamins B5, C & E, sunflower, almond, soybean & coconut oils, glycerin & aloe vera.
It is essential to care for your scalp and hair with products designed to nourish and strengthen it – to ensure a healthy, full bodied head of hair. With fall on the horizon, you’ll want to put an emphasis on scalp care and start early, so your scalp and hair are ready for the transition ahead. CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ can be found at Target or Walgreens!
