    The take me to Europe dress

    asos white dress

    This dress screams, “Take me to Europe!” This girl is so excited to roam the streets of Italy while wearing it! A friend from Instagram messaged me a while back and told me how she saw a dress while out shopping and thought it would be perfect for Italy. I, of course, loved it! But, didn’t love the $100 price tag. So, I did some research and found this little number for $45 on It was on sale at the time and just like my previous post a dress I found a while back. It has been tucked away for safe keeping; waiting to make its debut in Europe!

    The stitched florals and eyelet detailing is such a sweet feminine touch and the A-line fit is divine! Felt like this dress was the kind that would be worn in Italy and so I am planning on wearing this for a day of exploring. I love how it is so versatile. I plan to wear it more casually with my Pon sandals and a denim jacket if it gets chilly. But, it can easily be worn for something fancy!!! Throw on a pair of strappy sandals and a shall; completely changes the feel and look of this dress. Versatility is one of the ways I talk myself into a purchase. Well, if I can wear it this way and that way it’s much more justifiable. Right?

    A special occasion

    date night

    Everyone deserves a fun and sassy look for a special occasion! Nick and I will be celebrating our 6th year wedding anniversary while in Italy. This seemed like the perfect special occasion for a body hugging get up like this! I knew I wanted to go out with a bang for my outfit. I wanted something that felt sassy and a little bit extravagant. After all, how many anniversary’s will we be spending in Italy? This will probably be our only one! I happened upon this floral print bodycon dress and fell in love! I snagged it and have had it tucked away for the past few months. It has since sold out. But, I linked several similar options. This look is perfect for a date night or fancy evening event!

    I also found the perfect undergarment! I do not want to worry about whether what I am wearing is see through. Often times a piece of clothing might seem like it is okay. Yet, when you stand in the sun suddenly you’re putting on a show! With this in mind I always air on the side of caution. Free People makes a really nice fitted slip that is perfect for a bodycon dress such as this. Also, adds an extra lay of fabric; perfect for hiding any body imperfections- that we know we all have. I found mine at Nordstrom. However, it seems to no longer be available. So I did some research and found a couple options at //

    Roden and Fields Review

    roden and fields

    Roden and Fields has been on my news feed for quite some time now. I’m never one to jump into something new. So, post after post I just continued to pass them by. Until one day a high school friend messaged me asking if I would be interested in trying out a few products I thought why not!?

    Let me just say I was not expecting to love these products as much as I did! I figured they might be decent. But, sheesh! They definitely felt amazing on my skin and felt like a little at home spa treatment. Something this mama of two little boys could use more of! I tried the lip shield, microdermabrasion paste, multi functioning eye cream, night renewing serum “face crack”, daily body moisturizer, and lip renewing serum.

    The lip renewing serum is so smooth and lightweight. As you continue to read you’ll find that Roden and Fields truly makes a quality product. They know how to make products not only work but have the most appealing application. Price point for the lip renewing serum: $56.00

    Microdermabrasion paste- truly helps to sloth of the dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling as smooth as a baby’s bottom. I often forget to exfoliate. However, I know that it helps to keep acne from presenting itself. This product makes me want to remember to exfoliate!!! I definitely feel like this one does the trick! This is recommended for use a couple times a week to improve texture and appearance of skin. Price point: $92.00

    After washing off the microdermabrasion paste I used the “face crack” and it literally felt like I was rubbing silk on my skin! I have never felt something so amazingly soft and supple. It was amazing!!! I would seriously apply this stuff all day long. The serum is a blend of peptides and retinol which improves skin texture and brightens the skin. It is also an anti aging serum that will reduce wrinkles and pores for a more firm and youthful skin. Price point: $91/.00

    I have the darkest under eye circles/my under eye skin seems to have lost all its luster. I have been using the eye cream every night for a couple weeks and can already tell a difference in how my skin looks. This cream really does it all- helps with fine lines, dark circles, and brightens the under eye area! I definitely feel that all these things have improved. If you watch my insta stories you know that I frequently make remarks about my under eyes! I don’t take this stuff lightly. Hehe! Price point: $62.00

    I love the lip shield. It goes on so smooth! The scent reminds me of fresh herbs and is quite calming. It is made with shea butter, avocado, and sunflower seed oil. Price point: $18/2 pack

    The body lotion had a similar feel as the face crack. A velvety silk like texture and again had a super natural scent just as the lip shield does. Very calming. Price point: $26.00

    If I had to recommend only a couple of their products I’d say the microdermabrasion paste, night renewing serum, and under eye cream are my favorites!!!!

    Now that you have the low down on the products and price points- this is how the company works in regards to purchase! If you are prospective customers and want to become a preferred customer you will be charged a one time fee of $20.00 (Sarah, the girl who shared these products with me and who you should contact for your purchase. J) which will be reimbursed. Once you are a preferred customer you will receive 10% off all retail prices and receive free shipping on $80.00 or more. Becoming a preferred customer means you are signing up for autoshipment every 2 months. However, Sarah stays on top of things! She will contact you and ask if you are ready for a new shipment. If you are not she can delay it in 30 day or 60 day increments. There is no limit to the amount of times you can delay the new shipment.

    Of course you can purchase the products for full retail without becoming a preferred customer!!!

    If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment and I will reach out to Sarah or you can contact her directly.
