And cozy + chic pieces like Coobie’s undergarments are perfect for these hot summer days.

Whether you’re hitting the pool, beach or relaxing this summer, these goodies are ones that you’ll definitely want to try.

1. Pure Leaf Tea House Collection

I am a tea fanatic, and will almost always pick tea over coffee; whether it’s hot or iced! Pure Leaf is my go-to iced tea, when I’m looking for a refreshing drink. So, I am super excited about the Strawberry & Garden Mint and Spiced Chai flavors. Not only do they sound delicious but each taste SO good!

The Strawberry & Garden Mint is an organic Black Tea with hints of Strawberry & Garden Mint. The Spiced Chai is also an organic black tea with a blend of spices. If you love tea as much as I do, you’ll want to try these flavors. Explore the collection here

Date Night Ready with Degree UltraClear Black+White Dry Spray

This post is sponsored by Degree Women but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Summer time is full of family fun days but also date nights. This is the time of year, we like to take advantage and get away every now and then. We make plans to spend some one-on-one time with each other. Because as parents, I think we owe that to ourselves, to find ways to maintain our marriage fresh. While Summer nights are the perfect time for us to hit the town, it can get a bit warm in Texas. For that reason, I have been using the new Degree UltraClear Black+White Dry Spray to stay fresh.

I love that it goes on instantly dry and gives me up to 48-hours of protection against wetness and odors. The fact that it has Motion sense Technology that releases bits of extra protection whenever I move, make it an allied when dancing is part of our date night plans.

Degree UltraClear Black+White Dry Spray Deo it so good that it has become essential to my lifestyle, beyond date nights. Especially because it is so gentle on all my outfits, it doesn’t leave yellow stains on whites or white marks on blacks.

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + Rompers, Slides & Zodiac Signs

Next time we meet it will be July, can you believe it? This year is flying past us, y’all! Today, I wanted to share with you a special piece of jewelry from Victory Jewelers. I may have mentioned that my birthday was on June 6 – I turned 31 but didn’t do anything too big. I suppose going on 30 was a bigger deal than going on 31. But in honor of my birthday month I have been wearing this (Gemini) Zodiac Necklace piece.

I love unique pieces like this one and its simplicity because it goes with everything. Plus, it’s under $35 and quite the conversation starter, as I often get asked about it. 🙂 Victory Jewelers’ collection goes beyond zodiac signs though. It includes initials, lifestyle pieces and even military pieces as they’re based in the small military town of Ft. Benning, Georgia.

A Little Self-Care with Essential Body Bar

A Little Self-Care with Essential Body Bar

I must admit that I am the worse at self-care. And though self-care goes beyond the physical, I’d say that’s a good place to start. So, I visited Essential Body Bar to do a little self-care this month. I used my birthday as the perfect excuse to get away and try their body wrap and v-steam. Which, I will tell you more about…. But first, let me tell you a bit about the place.

When I walked in, I almost instantly felt relaxed. It smelled amazing and the ambiance was totally conducive to relaxation. I did walked around a bit and took a look at some of the products available for purchase. And there’s a bit of everything, from candles to hand creams – all handmade with ingredients that are good for you. The candles for instance, you can use them as a body butter. Yes, the wax is actually body butter! “They are using their medical background with the highest quality of client service to help heal your body naturally, while surrounding you with an elevated spa experience.”

What I thought was really neat about Essential Body Bar is its location. It is like going over to your girlfriends house for a spa day. Instead of your usual commercial store-front, where people constantly walk by and peep in, this location is more private. 

Memberships Available, starting at $69/month. – Use thirtyminusone for 10% off all services.

Infrared Body Wrap

The infrared body wrap is $99 and during the procedure, your skin is wrapped in a natural solution that detoxifies your body. The wrap also aids with blood pressure, insomnia, muscles aches/pains, cellulite, weight loss, boosting energy and reducing stress. 

Seaweed is one of the main ingredients and it helps with toning. It also helps increase your metabolism, as you can burn 600-2000 calories in one session. It may take up to three times to see results, as long as your maintain a healthy lifestyle.

V-Steam

V-Steam takes about 25 minutes and it’s recommended depending on what benefits you’re looking to get out of it. If it’s your cycles that are a concern, it can be done a week before the cycle. If fibroids are a concern, it’s recommended to do it a few times a month. 

While, I’m only sharing two services here, I have to tell you that they have an array of services to choose from. Letrice is very knowledgable and can walk you over any of the services available, as well as benefits. Make sure to give them a call and visit their site to schedule an appointment; don’t forget to take your girlfriends. 😉 And use code thirtyminusone, to get 10% off all services.

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + A Summer Two Piece Maxi Skirt Set

SHOP SET HERE

Two Piece Outfits are trending this season. I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t think I’d jump on this trend at all. As a mom, it is easy to feel inappropriate rocking certain trends and styles – tell me me I’m not the only one to feel this way at times! But when I saw this Two Piece Maxi Skirt Set from Tandy Wear, I thought, “why not?”

Is it not the perfect summer outfit? I love the print (yes, another tropical printed piece in my wardrobe!) What can I say? I’m all about these lately… I love the way it fits, because it doesn’t over expose any areas as I thought two piece outfits might do. And the fact that it’s versatile, I can easily wear each piece to create different looks. 😉

How to Revamp the Guest Bedroom for Summer Visits

School’s out! The kids are home and this is the perfect time for vacations. Friends and family that you haven’t seen in months are likely to come visit and spend a few days in your home. And if your guest bedroom is like mine – only occupied during especial occasions – it probably needs some TLC. While, I will admit that I was worried about what I’d do with out guest bedroom, I just followed these easy steps to get it looking and feeling cozy.

1. Pick Out Colors or Theme

This is the starting point, whether it’s a coastal theme or blue tones, it is important to have a clear vision of what you want for the space. Otherwise, you’ll waste time, money and can easily end up with something that you may not be happy with.

2. Find Affordable Bedding

Bedding can be one of the most expensive items in a room. So it is important to find pieces that look great, feel great – your guest will sleep on these – and look great. In our home I use lighter pieces like quilts and coverlets, because they’re light and can be layered with extra blankets if needed. I’m linking some below, including the style I have in our master – which you might have seen on Instagram before.
