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!

12 Cute Holiday Party Dresses for the Season

One of my favorite things about this time of year is getting all dressed up for holiday parties. Even though Christmas is less than a week away, the parties keep popping up all the way through New Years. I always have so much fun shopping for cute holiday party dresses, and this year I have found so many cute ones that I think you’ll love as much as I do!

I love everything about this color block midi dress! Red is typically not part of my everyday wardrobe, but I will usually grab a few red/burgundy pieces to wear throughout the holiday season. This gorgeous burgundy is my favorite shade of red, and of course I’m obsessed with the bow detail around the waist. With this particular style and length, it could also be worn to work or other functions throughout fall and winter. Who doesn’t want to wear their cute holiday party dresses more than once?

FOR THE DAINTY DARLING:

CHARLES & COLVARD SIGNATURE HALO MOISSANITE NECKLACE 0.91CTW IN 14K WHITE GOLD

Simple, understated jewelry is my favorite. I fell in love with this gorgeous Forever One Signature Halo Moissanite Necklace from Charles & Colvard the moment I took it out of the box. It sparkles like no other! If you aren’t familiar with Moissanite, it’s a naturally occurring gemstone that is recreated in a lab. Since it’s not mined, you can rest easy knowing that Moissanite is an environmentally responsible gemstone. This is such a classic piece that will never go out of style. Check out Charles & Colvard for seasonal savings!

FOR THE TRENDSETTER:

FUN x FIORUCCI WOMEN’S SHEER CREW SOCKS

I can honestly say these are the most unique socks I own! These Fun x Fiorucci Sheer Crew Socks are super cute, and will definitely win over your fashion forward friends. This particular style of Fun Socks is part of their limited edition collection with Fiorucci, so get them now while you can! Take an additional 15% off your entire order at FunSocks.com by using code BABBLEBOXX at checkout now through Dec. 31st.

FOR THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTEST:

ALDI COCKTAIL SHAKER AND GLASSES

Anyone else obsessed with anything copper/rose gold? The Crofton Chef’s Collection Cocktail Shaker and Drinkware from ALDI are so adorable, and they would make the perfect hostess gifts for your upcoming holiday parties! How cute is the pineapple design? They are super affordable, and you can pick them up at ALDI for a limited time beginning Dec. 19th.

FOR THE TECH LOVER:

AFTERSHOKZ TREKZ AIR HEADPHONES

This might be the best invention ever. The Aftershokz Trekz Air Headphones use bone conduction technology, so you don’t have to put anything in your ear! I have super sensitive ears and can’t really wear headphones, so this is absolutely perfect for me. They are so lightweight that I forget I’m wearing them! I also love that you can listen to your music and still hear what’s going on around you (which is sometimes necessary). No need to worry about rain or sweat damaging them because they were made to stand up to the elements. They are available in a few different colors, but my favorite is the forest green that I have on here.

FOR THE HEALTH & WELLNESS ENTHUSIAST:

CHESAPEAKE BAY SERENITY + CALM CANDLE

One thing I am known to collect is candles. I have them scattered throughout the house, and they tend to become part of the decor. As much as I personally love candles, they also happen to make great holiday gifts! The ‘Serenity + Calm’ Candle from the Chesapeake Bay Mind & Body Collection is a soy wax candle infused with essential oils. It smells so heavenly, and provides calming aromatherapy benefits. Plus, it looks gorgeous displayed on a side table!

FOR THE BEAUTY JUNKIE:

FINISHING TOUCH FLAWLESS

I am always on the lookout for the latest and greatest beauty devices, and this one is officially on the list! The Finishing Touch Flawless is a facial hair remover that gets rid of unwanted hair quickly and painlessly. No irritation or redness at all! I can’t tell you how much better my skin looks and feels after removing all that annoying peach fuzz. My makeup goes on easier and looks much better after using it!

The Top 5 Cuyana Bags You’ll Want

If you’ve been a TPP reader over the past year or so, you probably already know that Cuyana is my favorite brand for handbags and accessories. Their approach to fashion is all about having fewer, better things, and their minimalist vibe is very much in line with my own personal style. Oh yeah, and Meghan Markle is also a fan of the brand. Need I say more? Cuyana bags are of the highest quality, and I can rest easy knowing that I will be able to carry them for many years to come.

With the holidays approaching, I wanted to share my top 5 Cuyana bags with you guys in case you are looking for that perfect bag to give as a gift. You may also want to add some new pieces to your own wardrobe this winter!

BEST CUYANA BAGS: SADDLE BAG

I have been carrying the Saddle Bag for about a month now, and I pretty much love everything about it. The nude color goes with everything, and it’s so easy to throw on and go. I also love that it can be worn with both a dressy outfit and a more casual look. So versatile!

This bag is the perfect size for carrying my essentials, including my Classic Zip Around Wallet and Triangle Pouch. The leather flap makes it super easy to get in and out of, and the magnetic closure just makes life easier all around. No zippers to deal with!

BEST CUYANA BAGS: TRAPEZE SATCHEL

The Trapeze Satchel is perfect for the gal on the go, and easily fits a 15″ laptop. This is one of those bags that can take you from work to happy hour. I just love the shape of it! The design is so sleek, and it’s guaranteed to turn heads.

BEST CUYANA BAGS: TALL STRUCTURED LEATHER TOTE

The Tall Structured Leather Tote is my go-to laptop bag when I work remotely. It’s roomy enough for all the stuff I typically carry when I work from a coffee shop (like my power cables, notebooks, and a sweater). There is an interior pocket that perfectly fits a 15″ laptop.

BEST CUYANA BAGS: CLASSIC OVERNIGHT BAG

I have taken the Classic Overnight Bag on lots of trips over the past few months, and I am always reminded of how practical it is. It also makes a great work bag or gym bag. I love the canvas exterior, and the grey/blush combo is so gorgeous!

BEST CUYANA BAGS: SMALL CARRYALL TOTE

My very first Cuyana bag was this Small Carryall Tote (last seen here), and I have been in love with Cuyana ever since! This is another piece that will go with pretty much everything, and it looks so chic with a Silk Scarf.

Cuyana has so many other gorgeous items that would make great holiday gifts for anyone on your list (including yourself)! Check out my “Hint List” with some of the Cuyana bags, clothing, and accessories that I am wishing for this year!
