Getting In The Groove

I feel like I’m finally getting into a good groove with work, life, and being on time! Ha! Even though we are in the midst of Ryan’s daily radiation treatment, we’ve found our groove. Also, I’m not sure but I think we might just be the happiest people at the radiation office. We’ve waited almost eight months to be at this stage in Ryan’s treatment, so call us nuts, but we look forward to going each day… it truly is such a gift! Although, I will say it was super nice to have the weekend off from sending Ryan into to get zapped.

This week we have lots of meetings, events, and – praise the Lord – I have a hair appointment. So besides all of the fun content we have planned here, I’m looking forward to getting the week started! So cheers to a sweet and productive week ahead, friends. 

5 Things I’m Loving

Kopari Deodorant

I’m just going to say what we are all thinking here… natural deodorant is the worst. I’m sorry, but it just is. I’m trying to get on board. I’ve been only using natural deodorant for the last 8 months, but I can’t tell you I’m happy about it. I’ve tried a million of them, but I caved over the weekend and ordered Kopari Deodorant after hearing so many rave reviews! Fingers crossed I’ll be one of those reviewers soon.

The Best Long-sleeve Tee

I am so obsessed with this white long-sleeve fitted t-shirt that I may just have to buy the rest of the colors. Seriously, it fits like a dream, has stretch, is super-duper soft, and keeps it’s shape. Plus it’s under $20. I’m going to go ahead and make an executive decision and say that we all need all the colors.

Eyebrow Pencil

Last week I received a handful of e-mails about what eyebrow product I’m using. I’ve been using L’Oreal’s Brow Stylist Shape and Fill pencil for a year now and I just love it so much. They have it in three colors, but I use the blonde. If you are looking for a new, brow product, this is the one.

Cap Toe Shoes

My favorite cap toe shoes are back in stock and you gotta have them! They go with everything and are totally classic and timeless. The only thing I’d warn you about is that they run a little small. In all honesty, I wish I would have sized up a 1/2 of size, but other than that they are perfection.

Orchid Earrings

I wore these earrings a few times last week and could not get enough. I love the way the post on the earring is at the top of one of the petals so the flower isn’t hitting your full ear and looking like an earmuff, does that make sense?! They are super easy to wear and oh-so-cute! Plus they are under $50. Such a great price for such a special statement piece.

    I’ve tried lots and lots of natural deodorant and will never use any of them except Kopari again. It’s 100% the best one out there and it smells amazing 🙂

    Totally agree on the natural deodorant! I currently use Kopari but don’t totally love it. I feel like I never went into a “detox” and sweat just as much as when I was on regular deodorant.

    I tried Native but it made me breakout in a huge rash. Hopefully you have a better experience with Kopari than I do!

    I’m always up for trying a new brow product, especially if it’s from the drugstore. Thanks for the recommendation, and happy Monday!

    Hey Ashley! So a month out, do you have an update on the Kopari?? I just started trying out Native today and I’m interested in how it’s all going to work… My normal deodorant that I’ve been using for years recently started making my underarms red and irritated, so I’m eager to hear success stories from trusted sources!! 🙂

      Bailey!

      So far, I’m loving it! it smells great and no skin reaction so far. I mean, it’s not Dove Antiperspirant 48hr (which is my FAVE!) or anything, but it will do! 😉 xoxo – AB
