Beautycon Box Review

I have always been interested in those monthly beauty box subscriptions, I just never pulled the trigger on signing up for one. There are a lot of different ones to chose from, which makes it hard to decide which one to choose!
I recently received my first beauty box, and it was from Beautycon. I was pleasantly surprised by the full size products, and the variety of items inside.

The box includes name brands such as Too Faced, Garnier, and L’oreal.

My favorite items were the Lippie Stick by ColourPop, the bronzer by Too Faced, and the highlighter by Artist Couture. I truly loved every item in the box though, and will use every single product.

Another goodie that came in the box was this botanic fiber facial mask , which was so refreshing! I think I’m going to have to stock up on these.

While I don’t have any other subscription boxes to compare it to, I do think that this one stands out among the ones I’ve heard about as far as the brands & sizes of products it offers.
The cool thing about getting a beauty box is that is likes a little surprise for yourself! You know it’s coming, but you don’t know exactly what will be inside.
If you decide to grab a box for yourself, be sure to use my code BRITTKAVWINTER for 15% off your total.

Pink Blush Maternity Clothing Review

So, I was just introduced to an amazing trendy online clothing boutique called Pink Blush! I am pretty bummed that I never knew about Pink Blush when I was pregnant, because they carry a large variety of adorable and affordable maternity items. I always had a difficult time finding maternity clothes that didn’t look like typical pregnancy pieces. I often settled for sizing up in non-maternity items for that reason.
While Pink Blush seems to focus on pregnancy clothing, they do offer a non-maternity women’s line as well.  However, a lot of their maternity line is so transitional that anyone could wear it, pregnant or not! In fact, the item I chose from their website was in their maternity section.

You can find this top here. (Although, it says it’s almost gone…so hurry!)

I am in love with this shirt for multiple reasons, such as the length, the fit, and the quality! Like I had mentioned, this shirt is actually in their maternity section, but it still fits me perfectly! And if I ever happen to get pregnant again… 😉

Pink Blush also offers accessories, swimwear, and baby items.

Had to include this photo of Sawyer trying to escape, because, well…#momlife.

 

I am very happy with my item from Pink Blush, and will definitely be back for more.

I hope you guys go check out ShopPinkBlush.com and find some trendy items to add to your closet!

FAMILY DAY AT THE TEAPOT IN PHOENIX

Yesterday we explored Phoenix. We live in the west valley, so downtown Phoenix is only about 20-30 minutes from our house. We love going down there to check out new places to eat and shop at. Logan and I would love to live in the heart of downtown, but unfortunately it is just way too expensive! In fact- last night I was browsing 3 bedroom apartments and found one that looked somewhat affordable but too good to be true. So, we called to verify the price, and…well…the price that was listed was actually PER ROOM. So TRIPLE the price that we thought was reasonable. HA! So we will just have to accept the 20 minute drive [for now].

Anyways, one place that we love to stop at for some coffee is The Teapot. It’s very kid-friendly, and the large backyard area with the playground is perfect for beautiful days like yesterday. [The high was in the 70’s]

I took some photos of the kids playing there. We got there about an hour before they closed [they close at 2 P.M.] so we had the place to ourselves. 🙂

Until next time!

So many things to check out downtown. I will have to try to document some more good Phoenix-finds!

A Simple & Sophisticated Watch

I haven’t owned a watch in years, mostly because I haven’t found one that fits my style. I am not into anything flashy, and I feel like when it comes to watches you don’t want to skimp out and settle with something cheap.
I was recently introduced to Daniel Wellington watches. I immediately fell in love with their simplicity and sophistication.
I like to read up on how companies were started, and I thought the story behind the brand was pretty cool. The owner, Filip Tysander, essentially thought that there was room in the market for preppy affordable watches. He ran into a sophisticated & well dressed Englishman named Daniel Wellington, who happen to be wearing a Rolex. This inspired him to start up his own watch company with $24,000 of his own money.
The brand has been a great success, to say the least!

I recently received the classic black with rose gold Cornwall watch, and it is my new favorite accessory. It pairs perfectly with this DW rose gold band.

The black + rose gold match my wardrobe perfectly.

I also really love the size of the face, it’s perfect even on my tiny wrist!

Jane Review : Daily Deal Site

Shopping online has become one of my favorite things to do since having kids. It’s so hard to round up the troops and head to the mall, and even when I have attempted to shop with the kids it’s not like I’m ever able to focus on shopping.
I love that I’m able to find some of the best deals online, as opposed to in stores.
Daily deal sites are popping up like crazy, which is great for my wallet. (And my sanity!) One that has been around for a while, and has held up a good reputation is Jane.com
I recently did some shopping there and I was amazed at how much stuff they offer! The best part is that it’s all super affordable.
I ordered a pair of boots for $25.99 BUY BOOTS HERE
There were so many style and color options, which made it hard to choose. I seriously wanted all of them!!

The boots are great quality, look just like the photo, and they shipped out quickly.

I also ordered this striped dress. IT HAS POCKETS! Dresses with pockets are my favorite.
This dress was only $19.99. It’s boutique quality and would easily be sold for $35+ at other stores. This item also arrived looking just like the photo and it shipped out quickly. There are other color and style options as well. BUY DRESSES HERE

It’s so soft and cozy.

 

So, my last order was only for these two items…I used extreme self-control and didn’t go crazy buying all the cute things available on jane.com. It was a difficult task. Ha!

If you’re looking for home-decor, accessories, clothing, baby stuff, or just about anything, then I definitely recommend browsing Jane before heading out to the store.

My Jane Review:
A+
Pros: Fast shipping, wide variety of products, good quality items, and an easy-to-navigate website.

5 FAVORITE PLACES TO TAKE THE KIDS IN THE VALLEY- ARIZONA

I always love finding new things to do with the kids. We have tried out a lot of different places around the valley, and some have become our favorites that we enjoy visiting frequently.

I have put together a list of our 5 favorite places around the valley that we love to take our kids.

1. PLAYGROUNDS FUN ZONE & CAFE • GLENDALE, AZ
Ideal for ages 8 and under. There is a section for babies, a section for toddlers, and then a playground for all ages. Cash and Sawyer absolutely LOVE it here. It’s very open and clean, and they offer a great cafe menu with a large range of items to chose from. We like to get there early and grab coffee and breakfast while the kids play.

2. THE TEAPOT • PHOENIX, AZ
We actually just visited The Teapot for the first time last week. It is now one of my new favorites! This is an adorable little cafe located in downtown Phoenix, and has a “hipster” vibe. There’s some toys inside for kids to play with, and outside there is a large grass yard with a playground and other activities for the kids. The place is pretty tiny, but we got there early on a Tuesday and it wasn’t too crowded.

3. CHILDREN’S MUSEUM OF PHOENIX • PHOENIX, AZ
There are so many things to do at the Children’s Museum, the kids have a blast exploring the 3 story historic Monroe School building. There are more than 300 play experiences throughout the entire museum. The 3- and-under room is one of Cash & Sawyer’s favorites. It’s full of things to climb, slide down, and crawl under. Cash also really likes the 2 story jungle gym, and  running through the noodle-forest. There’s seriously a whole days worth of things to do, you and your kids will not get bored!

4. SEA LIFE • TEMPE, AZ
We have been to a few aquariums around the valley, and this one is our favorite. It’s not a huge aquarium, so don’t plan a whole day around it. However, Sea Life is located at Arizona Mills in Tempe, so you can enjoy it before or after doing some shopping or seeing a movie in their IMAX theater. Cash (3)  loves it, and screams “WHOA!” at every single tank. While Sawyer (1) isn’t as amused. Sea life is located right next to the “Legoland Discovery Center”, which is next on our list.

5. LEGOLAND DISCOVERY CENTER • TEMPE, AZ
The Legoland Discovery Center is located right next to the Sea Life Aquarium at Arizona Mills. Usually we buy tickets to both, because there is a discount! We like to walk throughout the aquarium, then let the kids play at Legoland. Some areas are more geared towards older kids, (I would say 6 and up?), but Cash and Sawyer love the area for younger kids. And Cash has a blast on the two “rides” there. (They are very low-key, but he enjoys them.) There’s also a little cafe area, with items such as sandwiches and chips.

 

I’m sure there are gems we haven’t discovered yet, but so far these 5 places are our favorite. I’d love to hear what your favorite kid-friendly places are!
