Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti

Happy Monday Friends! Today I am so excited to introduce you to a brand called Sevenly! I love everything about the message and purpose of this brand and couldn't wait to share it with you all today! Sevenly was founded in 2011 with the mission of leading a generation toward generosity. Based on a simple core belief that People Matter, the Sevenly team started creating signature seven day campaigns and curate ongoing, cause-themed collections created to change lives by raising funding, awareness and followers for the world’s greatest causes! Each campaign and every product would also create conversations. Now widely recognized as one of the world's leading ''social good'' companies, Sevenly's campaigns have been  featured on, Mashable, Teen Vogue, People, and worn by social media influencers and celebrities such as Kelsea Ballerini
Sevenly is unbelievably close to raising their goal of 5 MILLION DOLLARS and I was so honored when they asked me to be a part of their mission by helping them continue to raise awareness to the many non-profits they have created collections for! I was immediately drawn to the "Kindness Collection" because let's face it, the world could use nothing but kindness, compassion, and love right now! I am so happy to be a part of such a powerful and important message and can't wait to see Sevenly reach their goal!

"Aime tous les Jours" Love You Everyday | Summit Fair

Happy Thursday Friends! Today I'm back with another Summit Fair look with a little French girl inspiration. I found this flouncy ruffle skirt while out shopping the stores this week and instantly fell in love! It's the time of the year to start thinking about incorporating casual and comfortable pieces like this skirt and top which will be great for creating fall looks once the weather cools down.  Lately, I've been on the hunt for statement pieces that will look great styled with jackets, vests, and booties once the weather finally does change. 
I can't help but gravitate towards all things feminine and girly during these hot summer months. The mint green colored cotton skirt is so fun to wear and I adore it paired with this striped tee from HM! The tee is embroidered with the French saying "Aime tous les Jours" which means "Love You Everyday", pretty pink flowers, and a cute bumble bee, which perfectly describes how this last couple of weeks have been for me (busy as a bee!!!) preparing for back-to-school and pre-holiday styling projects, editorial pieces,  and some fun new brand partnerships that I can't wait to share with you all!  Stay tuned!

You, Me, Matcha! Holy Matcha | San Diego

Last week Nick and I took a really fun trip to San Diego! I've been obsessed with Holy Matcha's instagram account (@holymatchaa) for such a long time, and knew I had to take the opportunity to visit the cafe while we were there! Matcha Tea has over 100 times the antioxidants of a regular brewed green tea and is naturally one of the most antioxidant-dense foods in our planet. I am a green tea addict so I knew I had to try this fun drink for myself while we were in SD. I was surprised to see so many matcha options on the menu! Matcha Latte, Matcha Lemonade, Matcha Donuts, and even Matcha soft serve! They also make some of the most instagram-worthy avocado toast I've ever seen! This place was seriously so cute, I was smiling the entire time, plus it was just really funny to see my husband sitting at a pink bistro table sipping green lemonade with a pink umbrella! He's a trooper for playing along so I could experience Holy Matcha and make such a fun memory while we were San Diego! I will for sure be visiting Holy Matcha again next time we head back to sunny California.

Amazing Lash Studio | Summit Fair

Last week I visited the brand new Amazing Lash Studio at Summit Fair for my first ever eye lash extensions! I was really excited to try it out for the first time, but I'm not going to lie I was a little nervous too. Immediately I was greeted by the girls at the front desk and got started prepping for my appointment. The studio is bright and gorgeous and very clean which was something I value very much. The stylists make you feel very comfortable from the moment you step foot in the door and they are extremely knowledgeable about lashes and the whole process of applying them. I was very impressed and knew I was in good hands.

Things to know:

*Arrive about 15 minutes prior to your appointment time for prep.
*Do not wear makeup of any kind to your appointment, come in with a clean fresh face.
*If you wear contact lenses make sure to wear your glasses or bring a contact case so you can remove your contacts before the lash application process. 
*The process of applying the lashes takes about 2 Hours.

If you are new to eyelash extensions process like I was don't be nervous, it’s actually a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. In fact, since your eyes are closed for the duration of the appointment it's really easy to simply drift off for a refreshing nap. How often do you get two hours of uninterrupted peace and quiet, right!?!

After I was all prepped for my lashes my stylist, Amanda escorted me to a private room for my lash application. There was a super comfortable, cushioned massage table, draped with a cozy velour blanket and the best neck pillow ever! It was no problem for me to get comfortable and ready to go!

Next we conduct a lash health evaluation, and Amanda answer a ton of questions for me! DON'T be afraid to ask as many questions about the application process, the lashes, glue, or after care as you want. The ladies at the studio have a ton of expertise and will be more than happy to answer anything you want to know. Next, we went through the lash styles and I chose the most natural style for more of an everyday look. Then, it was time to get started!  Amanda begin applying my eyelash extensions starting on my left eye and then my right eye. It didn't hurt or make me feel uncomfortable at all. The one thing I had some trouble with was just letting myself relax and keep my eyes shut LOL! When you awaken, you’ll have longer, thicker and more voluminous eyelashes you’ve always dreamed of!

Benefits of Lash Extensions: 

* Look Amazing -- The first thing you will notice is how good you look with your new eyelash extensions! Your eyes will immediately look big and bright!  Your friends and family will notice them too and demand to know your secret! Long, full, thick lashes make a strong statement all on their own

*Feel Beautiful and Confident. -- I've had so many people ask me about my lashes! The compliments have been unexpected and great! When you look good you can’t help but feel good too. Knowing your eyes look great all day long gives you confidence without the fuss. Wake up knowing you're ready to take on whatever the day brings your way...or at least look that way!

*Save Time --  The biggest benefit for me has been the time saver! I haven't worn any mascara since I got them done and I really don't think I need too! The lashes make your eyes look finished and beautiful without makeup, its amazing! I don't have to worry about my mascara running or flaking off because I don't need it!  There’s really no denying that when it comes to making your eyes pop and your overall look shine, longer, thicker eyelashes really can make a huge difference. And because you wake up like this, your morning routine is quick and easy!

After Care: 

Following initial lash application or refill:
Keep lashes dry.
Avoid participating in activities that cause you to sweat.
Do not use oil-based products of any kind, on or near your eyes.
Avoid touching lashes directly.
Sleep on your side, not face-down.

Wash lashes twice each morning and twice each evening, using an oil-free eye wash, such as Amazing Lash Studio’s Eyelash Foaming Cleanser. Wash twice, prior to and following any workout routine.
Brush lashes daily, from middle to the tips with your Retractable Lash Styling Wand.
Use Amazing Lash Studio’s protective Lash Coating every other day on lashes that are completely dry, and apply from middle to tips of lashes.
Avoid applying oil-based or waterproof cosmetics and creams on or around the eyes. Apply a translucent powder on top of any product applied to or around the eye area.

H&M Summer Ruffles + Stripes | Summit Fair

It's Friday! Wooohoo! Man oh man is summer flying by or what?! I can't believe we are already into July! I've been staying cool by wearing dresses and skirts all summer long and this month will probably be no different. I love a girly and fun summer look...what can I say? :) 

If you remember a couple weeks ago we celebrated the grand opening of H&M at Summit Fair! {check it out here} I've been scoping out the store over the last few weeks for new arrivals, sales, and those "must have" trend pieces that H&M is known for. I have to say, the Summit Fair location might just be one of my favorite stores in Kansas City! They have an amazing selection of sizes and the in-store style team is very helpful and knowledgeable of the merchandise. While browsing the new arrivals this week I stumble upon this adorable pink ruffle top and this striped tea length skirt! I knew it would look great paired with the satchel tote I scored a few weeks back. 

Summer is the perfect time to play with color and style when dressing up! Don't be afraid to style some of summer's hottest trends like ruffle details, stripes, and bolder colors that you wouldn't typically wear. Make a statement and have fun!

White Cropped Denim + Watermelon Hoodie

Happy Wednesday! Hope you all had a great 4th and a long extended weekend! I'm slowly recovering today...but boy am I tired! We spent time with family, did a huge cookout, swimming, and of course lots of fireworks to celebrate Independence Day. It's always good to unplug and have some fun but getting back in the swing of things is hard (currently: I'm sipping coffee like crazy!) 

Today I'm back with a look from date night last week. We had some strange cooler evenings in Kansas City last week and it was a little overcast and chilly weird for the end of June, but I took advantage of it so I could wear my new watermelon striped hoodie. I paired it with my favorite cropped white denim and heeled sandals for a dressed up but still casual going out look. In the summer-time I always love to pair my white denim with my darker toned tops for a clean and fresh look. 

Tips for Wearing White Denim in the Summer

* Create balance in any look by pairing the starkness of white on bottom with a bold color or fun print such as florals, stripes, or gingham on top. 

*Neutral Shoes always pair well with white denim, it also elongates your legs and makes you look taller.

*Create work wear appropriate looks by pairing dressy tops with white denim jeans and a blazer. 

* White on white is one of the summer's hottest trends. Pair your white denim jeans with a white top in a fun fabric such as lace, satin, or chiffon. Play with texture when creating a white on white outfit. 

* One of my favorite ways to wear white denim jeans is to pair the look with a chambray top. It's a classic style and the blue and white pair perfectly together! It's also an easier way to wear denim on denim without feeling too matchy-matchy. 

Hope these tips help answer any questions you have when creating a look with your favorite white denim styles!
