Summer Layering

I decided to play around with some layering today.  I  love this floral slip dress (worn here) from H&M but wanted to mix it up a bit so I layered this mesh top over it.  I added a belt to cinch my waist to eliminate a boxy look.  I love how layering a few pieces can completely transform a look.

Top to Bottom Crochet

Crochet pieces have been a go to this summer.  I love the feminine pattern of the lace crochet in this matching set.  The color is soft which creates a romantic look.  The sheer areas where your skin peeks through adds a little sexiness to the overall glam look.

Date Night Prep with C.O. Bigelow

Finding time for a date night is far and between theses days not to mention some extra time to pamper myself.  Between wedding planning and being a mommy, my nights out are limited for the time being.  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to team up with to review this Hot Date Essential kit from C.O. Bigelow and have an excuse to pamper myself for a night out.  When I worked in the city, I used to pass C.O. Bigelow on 6th Ave. all the time so I was excited to finally have the opportunity to try some of their products.  I am one of those girls that starts her prep time at least two hours before going out for the night whether it be a date with the fiancee or a night out with the girls!  I don't know about you but I am not a fan of being rushed so I like to take my time when getting ready!  When I think about my preparation steps I immediately think about what makeup I will be using for the night and how I will be styling my hair.  Often we forget about the essential beauty products that create those soft lips, add that extra glow to our skin and that shine to our hair.  Well C.O. Bigelow did not disappoint!

I started my date night prep by showering after a long day of creating decorations for Aidan's second birthday party.  I have searched high and low for shampoo and conditioner that works for my hair.  A combination that does not leave my hair too oily or too dry which can be a hard task.  The C.O. Bigelow Not Your Ordinary Daily Shampoo and the C.O. Bigelow Not Your Ordinary Conditioner worked wonders.  Both products are formulated for all hair types and smell delicious from their 100% natural coconut fragrance.  The mild shampoo is a combination of panthenol, coconut extract and silk amino acids which adds shine, body and nourishment to your hair.  The light conditioner leaves your hair shiny and knot-free, a must in my book!  Both the fiancĂ©e and I could not get over how amazing I smelt after using C.O. Bigelow's shampoo and conditioner.

Next it was time to exfoliate and moisturize!  Two steps which are extremely important especially in the summer months to get rid of all the dead skin cells and keep your skin soft and your summer tan glowing.  The C.O. Bigelow Lemon Sugar Body Scrub nourishes your skin with a blend of pure brown and white sugar and skin-brightening lemon extract.  I think I may have sat and smelt this body scrub for ten minutes straight after opening it.  I just cannot get over how amazing these products smell!  The C.O. Bigelow Lemon Body Lotion was light weight and not greasy which won me over immediately.  There is nothing I hate more than looking and feeling greasy after moisturizing.  

The last step in my date night prep process before the styling began was to nourish my lips with the C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve and the C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine.  I am not a fan of chapped dry lips, I mean who is!?  The Rose Salve is the perfect solution for chapped lips or anything else that may need a quick fix such as your elbows or cuticles.  It's an all purpose salve that smells scrumptious and fits perfect in your purse or clutch.  

The C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine feels cool and refreshing on your lips and adds the perfect shine to your lips.  I absolutely love this lip shine!  This is a definitely a new favorite.  I must say C.O. Bigelow has won me over with this amazing Hot Date Essentials kit.  I would without a doubt recommend you try some of C.O. Bigelow's products.
