Holiday Cards with Minted

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Minted. All opinions are my own :)

If there is anything I start counting down to months early, it’s the holidays! I love everything about this season…the cooler weather, the Christmas tree picking out, and LOTS OF sparkle. In my house, you will never find an absence of sparkle, but during the holidays I like to really pile on the glitter + sequins.

One of my favorite things to do in preparation is to check out the new holiday card collections. One of my favorite sites is Minted!

Minted connects you with the best independent artists to bring you endlessly fresh, truly unique art, stationery, and home décor you won’t find anywhere else. They are also a global community of independent artists and host ongoing design competitions to source new pieces/designs.

Their collection is fabulous + bright. I don’t have too many requirements for my holiday cards…actually I just have one. I want my cards to be foil pressed. I picked out my 7 favorite foil pressed designs below…

(keep in mind, these are what I chose for me as a single girl! there are plenty more options for families here!)

I love all of these designs because they are BOLD and incorporate great color. I really think the foil pressed cards really pop and will put a smile on the face of anyone who opens that envelope!

I just can’t keep a secret anymore, I HAVE to share which card I ordered…

If you know me, you know I love pink. I really like the colors in this card but also I love how clean it is. It has a simple message but it’s so beautiful that I know it will look cute on the mantel or refrigerator ;) I will share my finished design when I get them in!

Comfy + Cute

Happy weekend everyone! I am fully prepared to spend the weekend catching up on blogging, social media, and FOOTBALL. Lots & lots of football. Today I wanted to share a topic that all of us girls can agree on: we like to be comfortable. What good is being comfortable if it’s only part of the month? It’s not. So, I have a great way to help stay comfortable all month long: U by Kotex curves liners. You no longer have to let liners stand in the way of your comfiness, because these liners are super thin + comfortable.

I have been planning my packing list for my New Year’s Eve trip for almost a month now. If you didn’t know, I’m headed to Vegas for the Maroon 5 concert with my BFF’s Ricci + Jenn. It is going to be epic! I got to thinking of a couple of things I wanted to be sure not to forget, and I’m now including these U by Kotex curves liners. We are going to be flying and we ALL know how uncomfortable that can be.

What I really like is that these liners are in super thin adorable packaging. I got a travel wallet I have had my eye on since last holiday season, and these U by Kotex curves liners fit perfectly inside. And you know that fear of dropping your bag and all your goodies falling out? These liners are so cute that no one will even know what they are.

Thanks for reading!



My Experience with RevelationsRX

Hey y’all! I’m SO excited to be back on the blogging train. I have been so busy traveling and working & getting back in the swing of school!

Let’s talk all about skin care today! We all know my skin needed a major rejuvenation after all of this traveling (AND pollution in China!), so I wanted to share an amazing new product line with you all called RevelationsRX.

skincare, revelationsRX, anti-aging, skin, face mask

This company was kind enough to send me two boxes: firming & anti-aging and crow’s feet & fine lines. I think it’s important to get ahold of my skin at an early age before it gets too out of control. As a future pharmacist, I also think it’s important to be sure to wear sunscreen and take care of your skin. The de-puffing around my eyes was a complete transformation for me & I’m so happy.

Winter is a big time that skin can get dry & flaky. Thanks to RevelationsRX, the firming & anti-aging kit helped to protect, tone, and restore my skin back to its original state! What’s great about these products is they will supplement your already existing skincare routine.

The tough outer layer of skin has always been a barrier to effective skin rejuvenation, preventing topical products from penetrating to the source of most skin concerns. RevelationsRX breakthrough technology overcomes this challenge by delivering more nourishing ingredients to the deeper layer that needs it most. These patented serums, born out of wound healing science, offer a remarkable improvement in the appearance and rejuvenation of skin.

Science Behind RevelationsRX
• Patented Cell penetrating technology surround and protects key ingredients, transporting large amounts of vitamins and nutrients to the deep layers of the skin, targeting concerns and rejuvenating
• RevelationsRX delivers our serum in two unique ways – biocellulose masks and targeted serum Rollers: RevelationRX’s unique mask delivery system enables more proven serum ingredients to drench the face more quickly. And the targeted serum rollers maintain results between treatments with no mess or waste.

There are three items that I received:

1. Full Face Mask (firming & anti-aging)

face mask, anti-aging, face, facial mask, skincare

2. Eye Mask (Crow’s feet & fine lines)

3. Targeted Eye Serum Rollers (both firming/anti-aging & Crow’s feet/fine lines)

skincare, anti-aging, face mask, facial mask, face

The advantages of biocellulose masks:
• natural mask derived from coconut fibers conforms gently to skin
• delivers more proven ingredients directly to the skin (a whole bottle of serum in under an hour)
• calming and cooling

The advantages of anytime serum roller Serums:
• Easy and targeted delivery right to the desired area
• Maintains and optimizes results
• No mess or waste

The ingredients in RevelationsRX products are scientifically proven and natural. RevelationsRX products are free of parabens, dyes, sulphates, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances and gluten. We also formulate without UREA, DEA or TEA.

These products have SAVED my face after my journey halfway across the world to China. Winter & pollution have nothing on me now! Do you want to try RevelationsRX? Here’s a great deal for you:
