Happy Friday eve! Is it me or did this week fly by?! Well I think all days are starting the blend together at this point! I am usually not a big beauty junky but lately I have been on the hunt for some good beauty products to add to my collection and thought I would share a few things I am waiting to pull the trigger on. I keep hearing a bunch of bloggers rave about mascara primers and I have been itching to try one! This one has great reviews and I always love Tarte products! I love a good makeup primer and this one has the most amazing reviews! I have super oily skin and this claims to keep oil at bay. Once I am done breastfeeding I really want to try a lash serum and I have heard so many great things about this one! I have been looking for a great neutral eye shadow palette and I just ordered this one. I love the warm neutral colors! I hope you all have an amazing weekend! <3

Happy Wednesday babes! I cannot believe we are halfway through the week already! I feel like the week just started! As you all know once I got pregnant with Sawyer I became very conscious on switching over to clean beauty and I love hunting down some of the best clean and all natural beauty products. I am so glad I stumbled upon Heritage Store! I have been loving their line of Rosewater and how versatile they are! They have simple, all natural effective ingredients and are the OG of rosewater! A good natural toner was one of the hardest products for me to find. I tried soooo many and none of them really made my face as clean as I would like until the Heritage Store Rosewater Toner! It is so good ya’ll! After taking off my makeup and washing my face I use the toner and the cotton ball still finds dirt and makeup that I missed! Also it helps fight fine lines and wrinkles, which is a total win-win! The Rosewater and Glycerin spray is super hydrating and can be used as a spray on lotion, makeup setting spray, or you can spray it in your hair/scalp to add moisture and shine! It is like magic in a bottle and has only 3 simple ingredients, pure rose oil, vegetable glycerin and Vor-Mag™ Water. The traditional Rosewater can be used for pretty much anything! Use it as a body splash for the perfect rosey scent, add to your bath to relax, keep it in the refrigerator to sprits on after a run or workout to cool down, you name it! Have you all used a rosewater before? I am so excited to have introduced it into my beauty routine!<3
Happy Wednesday loves! Can you believe the week is half way over already?! I have mentioned before once I turned 30 I promised myself to take better care of my skin, investing in high quality products, being more conscious of ingredients, etc. Well after getting pregnant with Sawyer I became extra careful when it came to ingredients and one thing that was hard for me to find was a good anti-aging skincare line that didn’t contain retinols. Retinol is one of the ingredients they tell you to stay away from while pregnant and breastfeeding so I just kind of threw my anti-aging products to the side until I was done breastfeeding (which hopefully wont be for another year!). Well I am excited to say I have found an anti-aging product that does not contain retinols and has the most amazing clean, natural ingredients! If you look at the ingredients you can actually pronounce every one, which is a lot to say! I started using their line over a month ago and I have seen so much improvement in my skin! I have been using the eye lift treatment, super boost serum, and the ultra hydrating anytime cream. Their products contain an ingredient called alasta, which is a blend of aloe vera and is so great for ant-aging! I have noticed my smile lines have really softened since using these products! I cannot wait to continue to use these products and see more results over time! I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! <3

Happy Thursday loves! Is it me or is this week flying by?! So you all know how much I love Pantene shampoo and conditioner, well guess what?! They just came out with an at home rescue hair treatment that is imported from Brazil and let me tell you my hair has never felt better! I am super hard on my hair! I curl it almost every day (my hair doesn’t hold curl if I sleep on it), blow dry it, use lots of hair spray, and I am bad when it comes to getting a trim! In fact I am guilty of not getting a trim since before I got pregnant with Sawyer! Yikes! So let’s say my hair is not in the best of shape so I was REALLY excited to try the new Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots! All you have to do is cover your hair from root-to-tip with the single dose tube after you shampoo, leave it in for 30 seconds, and then rinse it out for 30 seconds. I did this two days in a row and I cannot believe how soft and shiny my hair is! I can’t stop running my fingers through it! Also my hair is always knotty since it’s so dry at the ends and I woke up the next morning and I barely even needed to brush my hair! These are definitely going to become a regular for me! Also they are such a great bang for your buck since the Pantene Pro-V Rescue Shots package comes with 3 shots. The Pantene Pro-V Rescue Shots have a blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, strengthening lipids, and natural glycerin that targets the damaged area of your hair. It also doesn’t leave your hair heavy like other hair masks that I have tried. I’m in love! It’s no wonder it’s the #1 selling new treatment in the haircare category. Definitely give them a try if your hair is needing some TLC! You can purchase the new
Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots at Walmart here. I hope you all have a great rest of your week and weekend! <3

Happy Wednesday loves! Omg can you believe there is only 6 days until Christmas?! It definitely snuck up this year! One thing I do know though is that I will be having a great hair day this Christmas! If you all follow me on Instagram you know I started the #Pantene14DayChallenge and today I am officially at day 14! Yay!! When I became pregnant I wasn’t like the lucky girls that got glowing, shiny pregnancy hair, I actually got just the opposite, dull, flat, and lots of breakage! I am one of those people that have what you would call combination hair, oily roots and super dry ends, so I definitely struggle to find a good shampoo so I was super excited to start this 14 Day Challenge with Pantene!
Since my hair is naturally very fine, flat, and oily I went with the Sheer Volume Collection. Although, Pantene comes in other lines like Repair & Protect, Daily Moisture Renewal, and Gold Series Moisture Boost- for all hair types! The first thing I noticed after my first wash was the volume!! Praise the Lord ya’ll! The volume was created because my hair had soooo much less oil! My hair has been insanely oily (thanks hormones) so this was such a blessing to me! I have been having to wash my hair almost every day because of it too which I think was drying it out a lot. And now, after using Pantene I was able to stretch out my washes! Another amazing thing I noticed was my hair was holding a curl so much better! Some of you may not know this but I have naturally super straight hair and living in Florida with the humidity it can be a struggle for my hair to hold a curl and I noticed my hair was so much bouncier through out the day!
After day 7 I really started to notice my ends looking a lot better and smoother as well! This really impressed me since I have usually found a volumizing shampoo is not as moisturizing but the Pantene Sheer Volume Collection really is! I mean, I don’t think you can beat a shampoo that gives volume and also smooths your ends! Well now that I am at day 14 I can thankfully say Pantene has helped my hair from constant bad hair days to now great hair days! I really think it is the best shampoo and conditioner for oily hair I have found because ya’ll my hair has been OILY and it hasn’t been since using this shampoo! If you all have been having bad hair days like I was, I definitely recommend giving the #Pantene14DayChallenge a try as well, with one of their lines and report back to me and let me know how your hair feels at day 14!! I would love to hear! I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! <3
Happy Friday eve loves! Thank goodness we almost to the weekend! So today I am talking all about makeup! I have been on a makeup kick lately and have been wanting to try out so many new items, but I also wanted to talk about a few items I cannot live without! First thing I cannot live without is the Estee Lauder Double Wear. You have heard me say this before but this is the best foundation for oily skin! I have tried others and just nothing compares. It stays put so well and with the Florida heat it never melts off my face. Let me tell you the struggle was real before I found this foundation! One thing I really want to try is Tarte Shape Tape concealer. I am sure you have heard the hype as well that this stuff is pretty amazing and I cannot wait to try it! My favorite eyeliner to date definitely goes to Stila waterproof liquid liner. It stays put all day and is super easy to apply! Another item I have been wanting to give a try is the Benefit Gimme Brow. I am so bad when it comes to my eyebrows and I feel like a gel would make things super easy!
Also I am super excited today because I have teamed up with some of my blogger babes for a HUGE giveaway! One thing I keep preaching lately is skincare and one thing that is important when applying your makeup is to prep your skin first so it can be evenly applied!

Happy almost Friday loves! I cannot believe how quickly this week flew by! I am heading off to Disney this morning for a fun little day trip with family and my niece! I can’t wait to see Disney through her eyes! Be sure to follow along on IG stories @upbeatsoles! So my main goal I set for 2018 was to get better with my skincare and be more ingredient conscious. Turning 30 last November has really given be a kick in the butt to be more aware of what I put on my skin. I was so excited to try Lexli skincare because the ingredients were amazing and so were the reviews and it definitely didn’t disappoint!

Happy Tuesday babes! I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their week! So today I am talking healthy hair! I don’t know about you but in the winter my hair gets extra dry! I have very thin hair that is prone to damage so the dry weather can be pretty tough and my ends get really frizzy and brittle. I was super excited to try out Schwarzkopf GLISS® Hair Repair™ since their Ultimate Repair line claims to make your hair 90% stronger with replacing loss keratin 10 layers deep. It even won the Allure Best of Beauty award!
Happy Hump Day ya’ll! I hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween! Today I am going beauty on ya to talk about how I have switched up my hair routine a bit with some products from T3. First up was the T3 Source Shower Head Filter. I was sooooo excited to try this out! It filters your water in the shower head and removes dirt, odors, and impurities. I have very fine hair that gets dry on the ends very easily and tangly and I have already felt a big difference! Even after one use I could feel my hair felt softer. Also, I am hoping it will help with my dry skin as well! The only downfall I have found is if you or some one in your household is tall go for the hand held shower head because the one we received is very large so the sprayer comes down a few more inches than a smaller shower head. My husband is 6’3 and is not a fan that he now has to squat to get his head wet under the shower, haha! Hopefully his silky hair will make up for it! ;)
Happy Hump Day babes! Yay for being half way through the week! Last weekend you all know we headed down to Miami for a quick little getaway and it was so amazing to relax by the pool for a bit and get some sun! Of course I don’t like to lay in the sun without some good sun protection! What I love about Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydradtion® face lotion is that since the formula isn’t greasy I can put it into my every day make up routine and put it on under my make up! It is also super moisturizing so it keeps my skin moisturized throughout the day! I didn’t even half to re-do my make up when we went out for lunch after the pool! Definitely a win! You can also pick up Hawaiian Tropic at Walgreens to earn free gift cards by using Shopkick! I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday! <3
