Helping #EndPeriodPoverty with Always – You Can Too!

This post has been sponsored by Always. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Did you know that nearly 1 in 5 American girls have either left school early or missed school because of a lack of period products? I mean, can you imagine someone that you know missing out on activities that she enjoys and makes her confident, because of her period? Seeing statistics on this recently, truly touched me and pushed me to speak out on the issue. No girl should be in this situation! Especially due to something that’s so natural and reoccurring.

This back to school season, Always is on a mission to help ensure no girl in the U.S. misses school and loses confidence because she doesn’t have access to period protection. They are taking action to help #EndPeriodPoverty; and have partnered with HEB to raise awareness about the issue and donate to American girls in need. The donation will be made through Feeding America’s school pantry program; which provides food, toiletries and personal care products to kids in need.

Here’s how you can help too!

(1) When you purchase Always products from now until September 8th at your local HEB a donation will be made on your behalf. This includes purchases made through their convenient curbside grocery pick-up.

(2) You can purchase Always products and donate these directly to your local school pantries.

(3) Join the conversation and help end the stigma around periods and lack of access to period products. It is through awareness we can work together to find a solution to #EndPeriodPoverty.

As a woman and a mom, I feel that it’s up to me to be part of the solution. It makes me happy to know that Always gives back to our community and works at empowering millions of girls through puberty and confidence education, providing products to girls in need, and most recently by tackling societal barriers through the Always #LikeAGirl movement.

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + Booties and Graphic Tees

SMILE! It’s almost Friday! Even better it’s a long weekend. What plans do you have? We are still deciding what to do. Hopefully we come up with something fun. Speaking of fun… How fun is this graphic tee? I love graphic tees because they can be dressed up or down.

I’m linking some of my favorites below. This one caught my eye because of the quote but also the rosy color. I paired it with my new favorite jeans (also linked), and booties that Forever Young Shoes sent me. As always, I keep the accessories to a minimum – which usually works well. 🙂 What’s you opinion on graphic tees? Let me know in the comments!

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + Fall Floral Wrap Top

Happy Thursday! Although it’s not fall just yet, I wanted to share some fall floral with you. This top has been in my closet for some time, and I wore it at least once before. As the season changes, I start looking for pieces I could wear to transition into fall. I came across this one and thought it’d be the perfect fall piece. The deep red and dark floral print gives off all kinds of fall vibes in my opinion. What do you think?

Since this is a transitional look, I am wearing my favorite white sandals. I thought they gave the look good contrast. As for the accessories, I kept it minimal! Sometimes less is really more – as cliche as it may sound. 🙂 As always, I’m linking similar items below for you to shop.

Margaritas are my go-to cocktail, no matter the time of year. Whether I’m out with friends or hanging out at home, I love drinking margaritas. I’ll often stick to the classic but I also like trying other flavors. So, I recently made margaritas to enjoy at home with Torani® Syrups that I found at my local Kroger. With just a splash of Torani, I was able to quickly whip up margaritas in three delicious flavors; Raspberry, Mango and Passion Fruit. Each margarita was flavorful, delicious and refreshing. The best part is that the recipe to make these is super simple and only calls for five ingredients.

While I only purchased these three flavors to make the margaritas, I was impressed with the wide range of flavors Torani Syrups and Sauces offers. With so many flavors, it is easy to make any recipe your own! Plus, one flavor can be used to create endless recipes. Because ingredients are important, I like knowing that Torani syrups are made with real, simple ingredients like pure cane sugar and natural flavors.

Hack for a Healthy and Happy School Year

This post has been sponsored by Renew Life® . All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Summer is almost over and our focus is slowly shifting from summer plans to back- to- school planning. While it seems that most of our back- to- school prep is about supplies and outfits, I have made it a mission to think beyond that. For me, it is important to think about my little one’s health, and with Renew Life® products, it is easy to keep little ones healthy and happy for the new school year! Renew Life Kids Daily Boost Probiotic, for instance, is at the top of our back- to- school list this year.

I’ve added this probiotic supplement powder stick to my little one’s morning routine, because it provides everyday support for my little one’s digestive and immune health. By simply giving her one packet per day, I can prepare her for a healthy and strong start for the new school year.

As moms we worry about ingredients, but the Kids Daily Boost is free of gluten and soy. It is very convenient because of its fast-melting powder form. It tastes like fruit punch, which makes it something that my little one looks forward to. It contains 10 billion guaranteed live cultures per serving, so it makes me feel confident about her digestive health.

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + One Cardigan, Two Styles!

Happy Friday Eve! So I’m back!!! And want to apologize for skipping our TT LinkUp last week. I’ve been SO busy, as I mentioned before. The reason? We sold our home! This is both exciting, as we are moving closer to personal goals that we’ve set for ourselves. But also saddening, as I thought this would be our forever home. Though I am a bit sad, I have tried to “Let Go, and Let God!” And when you believe, you can see his hands at work, because of this I can focus on the positive aspects of this milestone and move forward. Now that the sale is final, I can come back to blogging fully focused.

So, today I’m sharing a cardigan c/o A Dip of Darling, that is under $30 and comes in six colors! I’m linking it below for you to shop, along with similar styles that I’ve rounded up. Since I live in Texas, I love being able to pair fall pieces (like this cardi) with summer pieces like I did in the first look. Cardigans and shorts are always a fun look! I added a pretty cami and a pair of booties to complete a look that is perfect for the summer to fall transition.
