Polished Picks – Blush and Ivory

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! This week’s Polished Picks are all about these pretty shades of blush and ivory. These delicate, feminine pieces will make you feel like spring has already sprung! Punxsutawney Phil said we’ll be getting an early spring this year, so we might as well help it along, right? A few of my favorites from this week’s blush and ivory roundup are this darling wicker bag and this oh-so-chic Christian Louboutin nail polish. How gorgeous would that look sitting out on your vanity? (Assuming you’re not clumsy like me and won’t knock it over!)

This Razor Delivery Subscription Will Change Your Shaving Game

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Gillette Venus. The opinions and text are all mine.

I have always been a sucker for subscription boxes and delivery services, but I will admit they are not always practical. Oftentimes, the excitement of getting a fun package in the mail is what draws me in, but a lot of what I get goes unused. One subscription service I can 100% get behind is the new razor delivery subscription from Gillette Venus Direct! I love knowing that I will actually use the customized razors that arrive on my preferred schedule, and I think you guys will enjoy it too!

Gillette Venus Razor Delivery

CONVENIENT

The main thing I love about the Gillette Venus Razor delivery service is that it’s super convenient and gives me one less thing to worry about. I have been known to use my razors much longer than I should (usually resulting in razor burn). This is almost always because I am on my last one and don’t want to take the time to run to the store. With the Venus Razor delivery service, I never have to worry about running out! You can build your shave plan in just three easy steps: pick your blade, pick your handle, and choose your delivery frequency. It’s super simple, fast, and FREE.

Gillette Venus Razor Delivery

CUSTOMIZABLE

The Venus Razors are completely customizable based on your skin needs and overall preference. Choose between 4 different handles (Original, Extra Smooth, Swirl, Platinum) and 4 different blades (Original, Extra Smooth, White Tea, Olay Moisture). The best part? All 4 blades will fit all 4 handles, so you can mix and match the handles and blades as you please! The one pictured here in my box is the Platinum handle with White Tea blades. I’ve never had a smoother shave in my life, and my legs feel so moisturized afterwards!

HIGH QUALITY, YET AFFORDABLE

This phrase is music to my ears because it’s not always easy to come by. A lot of times you get what you pay for, and that means having to choose between quality and affordability. That’s not the case with Venus Razors! Gillette is the number one female shaving brand in the world, and a big reason for this is because their blades are designed specifically for how women shave. I am proud to say that I have used Gillette razors exclusively for over 20 years and they have never let me down!

FUN

You may not immediately associate the word fun with shaving, but let’s be honest, it IS fun to get mail! The customization process is fun as well, with so many different combos to try out. The razors arrive in adorable packaging, which is just icing on the cake!

If you’re ready to take your shaving game to the next level, get started with your own Gillette Venus Razor subscription. I would love to hear what you guys think!

The Perfect Flannel Shirt Dress Styled 2 Ways

I have always been a fan of classic, versatile pieces that can be styled several ways. Simply changing up your accessories can create an entirely different vibe! This camel-colored flannel shirt dress from Lauren James is one of my favorite pieces right now. Wear it casual during the day and dressed up for an evening out. Lauren James is having a huge site-wide sale right now, so you can get this dress for 50% off with code HBDLAUREN (through 1/28/19)!

Flannel Shirt Dress:

This first look is perfect for a casual day of running errands or brunching with friends. I pulled out this old vest from the vault (a T.J. Maxx find from years ago) and gave it new life! It adds a little extra warmth to this already comfy and cozy outfit. I just love how this pale blush pink looks with the camel!

For the second look, I added some black accessories and a plush scarf for a more dressed-up evening look (although it can absolutely be worn all day). These Vince Camuto over-the-knee boots are one of my favorite purchases ever! I wish these were still available, but this newer style is very similar. I’m still super obsessed with my Cuyana Trapeze Satchel (last seen in this post). It’s seriously the perfect bag for carrying a laptop along with my daily essentials!

Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots: A Hero for Damaged Hair

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Pantene. The opinions and text are all mine.


As much as I try to avoid styling tools and products that will wreak havoc on my hair, damaged ends are pretty much inevitable. For me personally, it doesn’t take much for damage to occur because my hair is so fine. Throw winter weather and color treatments into the mix and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. When I know my hair looks dull and feels rough, it really does affect my mood and confidence level. Luckily, I found Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots to get me out of those unfortunate hair situations we all face occasionally. I can honestly say this is the best round of shots I’ve ever taken in my life!

Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots:

Benefits

Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots are Pantene’s first at-home rescue treatment imported from Brazil. They used Brazil’s best hair care secrets to create these magical little ampoules packed with nutrients that help inject life back into damaged hair. They provide deep-conditioning, but won’t weigh your hair down like some other masks and treatments.

How to Use

The great news is that you don’t have to change up your entire hair care routine to enjoy the benefits of Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots. Once per week, just use the Intense Rescue Shots instead of your normal conditioner. Apply the entire tube from root to tip, focusing on areas with the most damage. No need to wait around forever, just leave in for 30 seconds and rinse for 30 seconds. That’s all it takes for the magic to happen!

My Experience

After just one use, I could see and feel a difference in my hair. I usually struggle to get tangles out after I shower, even after using a conditioner. Not after using the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots! My comb glides straight through my hair as smooth as ever. Not a tangle in sight! After drying, my hair looks so shiny and thick. I think it has even helped my curls hold better throughout the day.

So, who wants a shot at MORE great hair days? I am 100% on board with that! Even if you regularly go to the salon for treatments, this is great to use between visits, not to mention super easy and non-intimidating like some at-home treatments. Grab some Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots for yourself at Target.com and let me know what you think!

New Year, New Photo Art from Snapfish

Garrett and I have kicked off 2019 with quite a bang! We finally made the leap and moved from the suburbs to the city, and we are absolutely loving our new place in Dallas. 2018 was a big travel year for us, and staying in the heart of several vibrant cities this past year actually inspired us to make the move. When the time came to decorate our new place, we immediately knew we wanted to order some new photo art using images from our recent travels. Snapfish made it super easy and affordable to create new photo art that is unique and meaningful to us, and I was blown away with all of their customization options!

Our New Photo Art from Snapfish

The blank wall in our dining area definitely needed some life, so I used Snapfish to design a 20 x 30 wood photo panel with one of my favorite images from our Notting Hill trip. I couldn’t believe how quick and easy it was to create the exact photo art I wanted!

Photos can easily be imported from Instagram, Facebook, and Google Photos (since that’s where most of them live these days). After selecting the product and importing your photos, you can change the size, layout, and design within the builder tool. The embellishment section allows you to add phrases, monograms, themed backgrounds, and so much more. This is especially great for photo gifts because you can truly personalize the item and create a thoughtful gift for someone special.

After going through all of the customization and embellishment options, I ultimately decided to just keep it simple and not add any text or additional designs to my photo panel. However, Snapfish has so many products and photo gifts that I can’t wait to personalize with names and special dates. They have a little bit of everything to choose from including wall clocks, calendars, blankets, phone cases… all customizable with your own photos and text!

Notting Hill is one of our favorite places in the world and actually has a deeper, personal meaning to us (read why in this post). With our gorgeous new photo art from Snapfish, we can relive our trip every time we walk into the dining room.

Snapfish is giving TPP readers a whopping 40% off sitewide with code CHEERS40OFF.

How amazing is that? This Snapfish discount is available through 1/31/19, so head over now and start designing your own photo art. Time to give your home a little decor refresh for the new year!

This new photo art post is sponsored by Snapfish. As always, all opinions are my own.
