Isn’t it ridiculously ADORABLE? Gabbi recently received this little beauty {Venus Rosette Bikini} from Limeapple Apparel {I know how cute is that name!} Let me tell you a bit about the company …

I absolutely adore this from their website:

We believe…
– in little girls being little girls for as long as possible

I think it goes without saying that this a great company! LA5 copy
This is hands down the best quality swimsuit we have ever had for Gabbi! When it arrived little miss and I opened it together and she gasped and said “oh mommy it is gorgeous” (she loves using the word gorgeous..it’s too cute) I agreed it is absolutely darling but mommy was more impressed by the quality of this bathing suit! It feels expensive…like REALLY expensive…you know what I mean…there is just something about it that screams high-end!
LA2
The fit is impeccable! It fits as if it was custom-made for her!
As always when ordering online be sure to reference the size chart! Gabbi will be 8 at the end of summer and this bathing suit is a size 5 (Gabbi is barely 40 lbs after she’s eaten)
LA1The bikini stays in place even when wet! That is one issue we’ve had in the past with Gabbi’s swimwear, it may fit great dry but after a swim is a different story. Not so with this cutie!
We recently took this bathing suit on vacation and let me tell you it was adored by all who saw it! Everyone LOVED!
The Limeapple Venus Rosette Bikini is perfect for hotel stays because it drys very fast. While on vaca Gabbi and her brother spent a lot of time in the pool and in the evening they all hung their swim wear in the shower Gabbi’s was the only suit that was dried by morning!
LA6
A few great things about this swimsuit other than the fact it is ADORABLE!
  • Fully adjustable tie straps
  • Full bottom coverage
  • High quality appliqués that stay fluffy even after it’s been wet
  • Dries fast (perfect for vacations and hotel stays)

Check out all the great stuff that Limeapple offers!

Gabbi would love a Bubble Hoodie, The Delia Dress, & The Arvia Printed Swimsuit

What would you love to get from Limeapple? We’d love to hear!

I want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Limeapple for sending Gabbi this adorable swimsuit!

*Although Limeapple did send me this Swimsuit to feature I was not compensated for this post or require to give a positive review.  All thoughts + opinions are 100% my own.

Birthday Party Dress Feat. Sugar & Snails Couture

Sugar and Snails Couture

My daughter Gabriella and I couldn’t be more excited to share all about the beautiful Gold & Sequin party dress Sugar & Snails sent her for her birthday!

Gabriella is about to celebrate her birthday {her and her twin brother turn 7 next week!} and she LOVES anything sparkly with tulle and twirly, this dress fits the bill perfectly!

ss2

This Gold Sequin and Tulle Party Dress is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! The day it arrived we opened the package together and when she saw it she gasped and said “Oh mommy this is so beautiful!” and she is totally right it is! Honestly the photos don’t do it justice it is SO sparkly! The tulle skirt is made with multi layers of soft tulle not the scratchy kind that can leave a little girl itchy {like mine} it is hemmed so there is no worry or unraveling or shredding like tulle sometimes can. The Sequin top is lined on the inside so no worrying about scratchy sequins either. It has a long zipper that makes it very easy to put on! My daughter loves wearing this dress for tea parties, pretend play or just playing…she headed outside to jump on the trampoline with it on…but quickly thought better of it and changed!

ss4

This dress photographs so beautifully and would be perfect for any type of photographs especially for outdoor birthday photos. It will make the most perfectly stunning Christmas or Holiday dress. It would also be a stunning flowergirl dress or perfect for little sisters at  Quinceañeras and Bat Mitzvahs or any special occasion…for Gabriella this is an everyday dress…going to the store or simply going to get the mail she is dressed in full glam!

SS1

Sugar & Snails Couture has so much more than Gabriella’s dress, in fact they specializes in Boutique Dreses, Headbands & Bandana Bibs and trust me you will want everything!

We are in love with this Black Lace Maxie Dress! I think this would be a perfect addition to any little girls back to school wardrobe!

Black Lace Maxi Dress

as well as these Lace Vintage Dresses, oh with a sweater, knee high socks and boots they  would be PERFECT for fall!

Lace Vintage Dress

My daughter LOVES this headband and so do I! Its really versatile and would go great with fancy outfits, shorts in the summer or jeans and sweatshirt in the fall/winter!

Beige Satin Flower Headband

Let’s be real here…my daughter wants all the dresses and all the headbands!

We have not washed this dress yet because it hasn’t needed it, however I will hand wash it and lay it flat to dry so I don’t run the risk of melting the tulle or losing the sequins.

Guess what? We have a fun surprise especially for you! ss3

unnamed-1

I don’t know what its like where you live but here in the Pacific Northwest October means cold, which means I pretty much live in whatever is warm and comfortable, that means hoodies, coats, boots, gloves and hats.

unnamed-2I absolutely love hats so I was so excited to receive this SCALA Pronto Slouchy Beret, its just too cute, I love that it has a really fun metallic yarn running all through it and since my favorite color is glitter this particular hat it was tailor-made for me!

This hat is so flattering on anyone, even my six-year-old daughter has stolen it and she’s really the one who is been wearing it! 🙂

This hat isn’t on of those itchy beanies…I mean, please tell me its not only me who has bought a super cute hat for fall/winter and the first time wearing it discover it is SO itchy 😦 yuck. The SCALA Pronto is a fantastic fit, feel and the slouchy style of this hat is totally on point with fall winter trends and I love that this hat comes in either are oatmeal or a gray…always classic!

unnamed-3

If you are looking for a new slouchy hat I recommend checking the SCALA Pronto hats!

5 Faves!

FF

Whoa it’s September!? Can you believe it? Summer sure went quick didn’t it? Well at least it did for us. Today I thought that I would do a Friday favorite! I haven’t done one in a really long time and since it is the first Friday in September it seemed perfect! Yes I am planning on keeping this as a regular Friday favorite series on my blog! Yay!

So today I have some very random favorites for you covering all categories!   So without further ado here are today’s Friday favorites!

 Bible Belles: Hannah at the Belle Prayer:

Bible Belles Review {thelifeinbloom.com}

Last month I shared with you guys about a brand-new book series written for girls age 6 to 10. I showed you the first book in the series called The Adventures of Rooney Cruz: Hannah The Belle of Prayer! Since receiving this book my daughter has been obsessed! She loves this book so much. She always has it with her, she always wants me to read it to her and if I am not reading it then she is looking at it the picture! The picture above was on the day her and her twin brother were getting their “about six-year-old” pictures,  while she was waiting she grabbed her Bible Belles Book to look at it and I snapped this picture! How adorable! I highly recommend if you have a daughter/granddaughter of that age to head over to the  Bible Belles website and grab yourself a hard copy or an e-book! {If you’re interested in reading my review here’s the link}

Colourpop Cosmetics:

CP

Have you guys tried Colourpop Cosmetics? I have mentioned them many times in social media posts in the past but I just had to share more about them! They are more just a Friday favorite, they are an always and forever, every single day favorite! Their “Super Shock” eyeshadows are like nothing I have ever felt before! They have a creamy almost wet texture and when applied to your eyelid they ‘dry’ beautifully…but not in a dry cakey way, does that make sense? Then there’s the lippie sticks…awesome as well! They are super creamy! I love the matte lippies so I was thrilled when they came out with their ultra Matte liquid lipsticks. So far I’m only grabbed up two but I think I need them all! I am so once again amazingly impressed with Colourpop, the formulations, color payoff and lasting power are totally on point! On top of everything they just released their new fall line that is a throwback to the 90s and if you were a teenager or young adult in the 90s then you remember that awesome make up! This line was made for me, back in the day my sister and I always rocked the brown mauvey lips … and the eyeshadows…swoon! I’m so excited, so of course I had to order pretty much the entire line…arriving on Tuesday! EEEK! Oh guys duh! They are HIGH quality but check out these prices

  • Super Shock Eyeshadows $5
  • Lippies and Lip Pencils $5
  • Blush & Bronzer $8
  • Ultra Matte Liquid Lip $6
  • Collections/Sets $20-$39

AMAZING!!! Head over to Colourpop and grab some goodies! They are actually having a Labor Day sale:

KT Tape:

KT

I’m absolutely in love with KT Tape! As I’ve mentioned in past posts and social media posts I currently suffer from a slipped bulging disc that is pinching a nerve in my back. KT tape  has been an amazing lifesaver and keeps me pain-free! Without the KT tape my left arm goes fully numb because of the pinched nerve the KT tape does a great job of reliving that pressure on the nerve and gives me feeling back in my arm. KT makes me be happy camper! My husband has been loving the KT tape as well. He has severe tendinitis in his elbow/forarm which has resulted in some pretty excruciating pain, we’ve been taping his elbow and its doing just as awesome on his arm! Seriously if you have an ailment or are interested in learning more about KT tape I suggest you head over to their website and check it out! They even have videos on how to properly tape! Find KT tape in a store near you HERE!

Kirkland Signature ¼ Zip Pullover in Teal:

pullover

So other day we were walking around Costco, getting some groceries and we walked past a table with some of the new fall clothing and I immediately fell in love with this pullover. I got the teal color {pictured} and I cannot stop wearing it…seriously I have been wearing it EVERY SINGLE day since I got it! It’s fleece {ish} lined so it’s perfect on our evening walks since its been getting pretty chilly at night! I know that I’m gonna love it come fall when we’re out at the pumpkin patch or on hikes! If you have a Costco membership head over there they got a bunch of other colors! I’m going back to get the purple, the gray and maybe the red to add to my closet!

Kushyfoot Flats to Go:

Flats to Go Review {thelifeinbloom.com}

A few days ago I shared Kushyfoot  Flats to Go. I am absolutely in love with these Flats to Go, they are rad you can literally fold them and throw in your purse but they aren’t just convenient they are so cute & stylish and really are comfortable, I mean you wouldn’t want to be walking on gravel in them because they are thin and light, however they get the job done beautifully and I have wore them all out and about and I get compliments on them all the time!  I highly recommend them of course check out because you put website and grab yourself a pair as well! I want them all…Now if they only had Pink and Purple! 😉

YSL Touche Éclat Blur Primer & Blur Perfector Review

Hey guys! Today I am sharing two new products to the YSL Touche Éclat line, the Blur Primer & the Blur Perfector.

ysl6

It has been years since I have used a YSL product…that stuff is EXPENSIVE, so I of course jumped at the opportunity to give to products a whirl!

So let’s jump right in, first up is the Blur Perfector! This claims “A blur perfector compact that perfects the skin while retaining its luminous glow” and retails for- $55.00.

ysl5

Overall I really like this a LOT! I really like using this for blotting throughout the day, with it being summer I have needed it quite a bit and I can say it works better than blotting papers {which I hate!} But….this is really expensive and I don’t know that I will replace it once it’s gone. If you are wanting to treat yourself with something very high-end I do recommend this! My personal PRO/CONS list:

PROS

  • I prefer in under make up then touching up throughout the day
  • Multi use! Wear alone, set your makeup or use as a touch up
  • The packaging in beautiful AND very sturdy
  • A little {and I meant tiny amount} goes a long way
  • Not cakey at all
  • Beautiful light in texture
  • Did not clog my pores or cause any breakouts

CONS

  • It’s pretty expensive
  • Since it is a balm it could melt in extreme heat

 

ysl1

Let’s talk about the Blur Primer! I was most excited about this and for good reason it’s AMAZING! It claims that it’s an illuminating primer that blurs imperfections and boosts the radiance of foundation. Ummm yes, yes it does! The first time I used this I couldn’t stop touching my face because it was SO soft! It retails for- $52.00.

ysl4

ysl3Overall I really do love this a prefer it over most of my other primers. It can be used multiple ways, alone, mixed with tinted moisturizer or mixed with foundation {I use it all of those ways}. There are little gold flecks in it that melt into your skin. Just like the Blur Perfector it’s expensive…but I think I might repurchase once this bottle is gone. My personal PRO/CONS list:

PROS

  • A teeny, tiny amount goes a long way although this is 1 oz. I think it will last a long time. I’ve been using it daily for a few weeks and you can even tell.
  • Leaves a wonderful silky texture
  • Blurred  my pores
  • Smells great

CONS

  • It’s pretty expensive for 1 oz. of product
  • The gold flecks may bother some people {it did not bother me at all}

bysl

Wearing both the Primer and Perfector!
