Bluebonnet Lane

I think we can officially say Spring has definitely sprung meaning one important thing…Mother’s Day. Now I know it can be hard to find the perfect gift every year that you feel your mom deserves which is why I was so excited when I discovered Bluebonnet Lane. Their idea is simple- curated gift boxes for almost any and all occasions. But, the way they do it is lovely, classy, and incredibly unique. I must say, this idea is pretty close to perfect for any mom out there. You could even give this gift as a birthday present, an Easter gift, or just to send a little extra love to someone special.

After talking to Alexandria, the beautiful women who started this company, she shared with me some ideas she has for future curated boxes which is GREAT and has me excited to see what she will come up with next. What do you guys think? Wouldn’t it be cool to see a baby shower box, a bachelorette box, or holiday specific boxes?

Lavender Love

I couldn’t be more thrilled today because I tested out some amazing products by Epicuren, a luxurious skin care company. I have always been drawn to the scent of lavender because of its calming element which is  exactly why I enjoyed the Tranquil lavender collection. Some products I have used in the past had too strong of a perfume odor giving it a fake feeling. I was really impressed with how natural and real Epicuren captured this scent. To get the full effect, use all 3 products in order.

Aromatic Sea Salt
I love nothing more than a nice bubble bath. Seriously. Dim the lights, pour in a ridiculous amount of bubbles, and of course add in some bath salts to give your skin some extra attention. Lavender is healing and calming so if you follow the sea salt with the moisturizer your skin will seriously thank you.

After Bath Moisturizer
This product is my favorite from the collection. I am big on moisturizing and make sure to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day to keep it young and refreshed. Smelling like lavender all day is just a huge bonus. This lotion is light and not too thick or heavy which is nice if you want to avoid moisturizers that leave you feeling oily. This particular product also helps with anti aging. Bonus!

Calming Mist
I spritzed this product on my sheets and pillow so I could have extra sweet dreams. I would recommend a little spray before bed because you will definitely feel calm and relaxed.
