Amazing Amazon Finds: February

Amazon lovers unite!!! We have been long time lovers of Amazon, but they have really stepped up their game and now we feel like we find SO many amazing things there.  Best of all, if you are a Prime member...it arrives on your doorstep in two days and most things we find are SUPER affordable.  Think less than you would spend taking your kids to Chick-Fil-A. We have both gotten so many great items recently and have gotten tons of questions in real life about them so we wanted to share our finds with all of you, too! If this is something y'all enjoy we're thinking about making it a monthly thing.

Most of what we found this month were items that we feel like we could wear now and into spring. We are just over the cold weather, tired of wearing boots and heavy sweaters and ready to start lightening things up with our wardrobe.  Unfortunately, the cold weather continues here in Atlanta, but we are hoping to will it warm with our wardrobes!

Carrie Beth's Finds 
Jen and I both bought a pair of these blush pink Nike shoes and I immediately set out to find all sorts of things to wear with them.  Kind of opposite right...to plan your outfit around your shoes, but I just LOVE them so much.  

This camo sweatshirt was a definite winner.  It's called a sweatshirt, but it is actually really light weight so works well now and is something I can wear into spring, too.  It comes in several different colors. I'm generally between a small or medium in tops and got the medium in this one because I wanted it long enough to wear with leggings.  LOVE it!  


This floral sweatshirt is another one I bought specifically to wear with these shoes. It works well now with jeans and I can see wearing it into spring with my favorite denim shorts.  It's the same lightweight material as the camo one above so great for now and for when it warms up a bit.


Sticking with the same lightweight sweatshirt style...I saw this one and HAD to have it.  It's no secret I love all things leopard or animal print, so had to have this one. It fits very similar to the camo one, but I got a small in this one because I wanted it to be shorter to wear with jeans and shorts.

This color block t-shirt is SUPER soft and comes in several colors. I'm wearing it with my favorite gray jeans. It works now with a denim jacket and later into warm weather worn alone. It's a longer length so also good with leggings if you size up.

We shared all about our favorite silk pillow cases and why we are sleeping on them. I posted this picture on Instagram and got tons of questions about my shirt!  The long sleeve is sold out, but here is a short sleeved option that comes in several colors!


We did an entire post on our favorite workout wear (you can find that HERE), but these two items were our Amazon favs.  The best leggings ever and this super cute workout top.  Both under $20!  


Where are all the baseball moms at???  Spring season is here and I'm so very excited.  I can't wait to cheer on those sweet boys and I got a few new tops to wear to the ballpark.  These both remind me of something I could find on Etsy, but with the great price and convenience of Prime shipping! 

This baseball heart tank is a stretchy cotton fabric and comes in both blue and red.


This Play Ball tank is SUPER soft...I want to wear it all the time. Even when it isn't a game day.

Jen's Finds
I've always had good luck with Sperry shoes so when I found these Sperry sneakers I had to give them a try! 


They are really comfortable and feel like they will be a great transitional shoe taking me from winter straight into spring! 


Like Carrie Beth, I wanted to lighten up my wardrobe a bit and this pretty color block tunic sweatshirt was a total winner.  It's super soft and comes in several colors.


It's a great length to wear with jeans and the length would also work with leggings. These white perforated sneakers are also a great shoe for making my outfits look just a little more spring and are super comfortable!


I've been on the hunt for some great white distressed denim shorts. The hunt is OVER!!!  I love these and can't wait to wear them all spring and summer long.  They feel very similar to our favorite denim shorts from last summer.


This short sleeved terry cotton shirt is amazing!!! So comfortable and I'm totally getting another color.  It's super casual, but easily dressed up with a fun necklace and helps me look put together, but still able to live that mom life and keep up with my kids.  


So there you have it!  Our amazing Amazon finds from this month.  Let us know if this was helpful and if you want to see more Amazon posts.  We can assure you we are going to keep shopping and already our eye on a few things!

The Georgia Swarm


Okay friends, how did I not know we had a professional lacrosse team in Atlanta?! Not only did I not know about the Georgia Swarm, I didn't know they were the NLL World Champions in 2017!

I'll be honest, I know very little about lacrosse. A few friends played in high school, but I've never attended a game, let alone a professional one. The popularity of the sport is increasing in our area, and kids are starting to get into it younger. As a sports lover I've always been intrigued. So when the Georgia Swarm asked if we would like to attend a home game as a media guest we hopped at the chance to both see a live game and learn more about it. 


The Swarm play out of Infinite Energy Center just north of Atlanta. I learned that they are the only team part of the NLL to have a home base in the south. The next closest team is in New York. In fact, almost all of the teams in the NLL are based out of the northern states and Canada. I love that they chose the peach state to represent the southern fan base. 


And now after attending a game, I hope they never leave. 



Y'all it was SO. MUCH. FUN. From the minute we sat down in our seats, I we were entertained. 


The game is so face paced and reminds me a little bit of hockey. Cute loved it right off the bat, and has already asked repeatedly (1.) when he can play lacrosse? and (2.) when he can see another game? 


 We spent the first three quarters in lower level seats which had an awesome view of the field, but for the fourth quarter decided to change it up a bit. We were given Goal Zone passes as part of our media package and I wanted to check out that view too. 


The Swarm Goal Zone section resides at one end zone of the field. It has designated on-glass rows of seats, a spectacular view, and a bar with specialty cocktails. It also has a large stage for any surprise performers that might appear. 


I mentioned the view was amazing right?! 


Cute loved feeling like he was in on all the action. You get such an up close view of the game and the players! 


Right after I took this picture, two players slammed into the glass battling for the ball. Cute was beyond pumped after that. 


I had no clue lacrosse was such an intense game. I mean, they wear pads and some protective gear, but there's wrestling, checking, and flying sticks. Not to mention a tiny hard little ball flying around at such a fast speed. These players are tough.  


And they put it all out there which only adds to the excitement of the game. 

New Sting City shirt and merchandise was unveiled on Feb. 9th. I got an early sneak peek at the new line. 

I learned the Georgia Swarm fans love their players, and are beyond supportive of their home team. The cheering, chanting, and rallying never stops the entire time. And I get it. It's a wild and super fun sporting event experience. Everyone I brought to the game with me agrees and now the Georgia Swarm has a dozen new fans. 


Cute being the biggest of them all. As I was finishing up some things in the Goal Zone, he spotted the Swarm's goalie Mike Poulin. He ran right over, and even though Poulin was "off the clock" and trying to spend time with friends and family who came to support him during the game, he took the time to chat with Cute and take a few photos. 


Cute was so excited. I've literally heard every day how he needs to go back to game to see his friend Mike. Poulin and the Swarm have a fan for life. 


We can't wait to head back to Sting City to check out another home game. There are still a few left in the season with some fun theme nights thrown in too. 


In case you want to check out a Georgia Swarm game (you totally do!) here is what's scheduled for the remainder of the season.

You're Invited: Power of Breath Fashion Show & Luncheon

Today we want to chat with you about a fun little event coming up in addition to a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. We've said it before and we'll say it over and over and over again - this blog has given us the opportunity to meet some fabulous women. We've gotten to take part in some amazing things, been introduced to neat experiences, and on occasion we are sent a cute pair of shoes. But nothing compares to the relationships that we have formed. 


A few weeks ago we met up with this gorgeous lady. Melissa is the Executive Director for The American Lung Association in Georgia. We were introduced to her almost a year ago by our friends at Findlay Rowe. We are so passionate about what Melissa does, and the work that her team does for our community. 


Now we have something fun planned with Melissa that we'll chat about that in a sec, but first we want to get a little real. It was until our discussions with Melissa over the last few months that we realized how grossly misinformed we were about lung cancer. 



The statistics that she shared were shocking! Even more so when we learned that lung cancer is diagnosed at a higher rate here in Georgia - especially among women. In fact, nationally the number of women diagnosed with lung cancer has increased 94% in the last 39 years. 


Even more shocking was to learn that most individuals diagnosed with lung cancer have never even smoked before! 

WHAT?!  

We were so naive, and thought one lead to another. We now realize how little education is actually out there about lung cancer, and its causes. 

It spoke to our hearts to learn that every few minutes there are individuals out there receiving their diagnosis and asking themselves, "How? Why?!".  Women like us. Like you. 

We wanted to do something - anything - to help. So when Barbara, Audrey, and Melissa asked us to be part of their Power of Breath Fashion Show & Luncheon we were honored. 

And we want you to join us!!


ABOUT POWER OF BREATH

The Power of Breath Luncheon will take place on Friday, March 1st at the Country Club of the South. The event with be fun with a capital FUN. 


The main purpose of the lunch is to help support the American Lung Association and honor the women in our community who have gone above and beyond to bring awareness to the cause. These are women who have been nominated by their peers and have committed themselves to raising $15,000 in support of lung health.  


In addition to celebrating the leading ladies of lung cancer the luncheon will feature a fashion show (we might know a Magnolia Mama or two who will be walking - eeks!), an auction, and a wine wall you can bid on (some bottles retail for over $200!). 



The fun doesn't stop there! Several of our favorite designers and boutiques will also be hosting pop-up shops where the proceeds will benefit the American Lung Association. To give you a little sneak peek at who will be there...


Fashion, shopping, an amazing group of women, and yummy eats...need we say more?! We. Can't. Wait! 

Be Our Lunch Date! 

Tickets usually sell out for this event, but there is currently still availability. We would LOVE it if you could join us! Tons of other local bloggers will be walking the show as well, so it will be a great chance to meet some of your favorites in person. 


It's for a wonderful cause! And you get to be entertained not only by seeing us do our best Gisele B√ľndchen impersonations, but by the fabulous Keisha Lancelin from CW Atlanta who will be emceeing the event. 


We hope to see you March 1st at the Country Club of the South so we can all celebrate the Power of Breath!

Why You Should Sleep On a Silk Pillowcase

Around Christmas time we were hearing all the rage about silk pillowcases and felt a little left out.  We had never really even thought about silk pillowcases and all of the benefits of sleeping on one until then.  We started reading and doing a little research and y'all!!!!  We feel like we had been living with our heads in the sand.  Good for your hair and your wrinkles?  You better believe as soon as we found that out we were all about jumping on the silk pillowcase bandwagon.


Apparently studies have shown that sleeping on a silk pillowcase can help reduce wrinkles because the older you get the "sleep" wrinkles that happen overnight don't disappear as quickly as they once did.  Over time they may become more permanent.  No one wants that!  When sleeping on a silk pillowcase your face glides over the silky smooth fabric keeping lines and wrinkles to a minimum.


Not only is it good for your skin, but also for your hair and it totally makes sense when you think about it.  With a regular pillowcase your hair is met with friction when it moves, which can not only damage and break hair, but also give you a serious case of bed-head.  With a silk pillowcase your hair glides over it smoothly keeping hair healthy.  Bonus, if you curl your hair it will often keep some of it's curl while you sleep.

Jen's next day hair: 

We reached out to our friends from Fisher's Finery about trying their silk pillowcases after seeing they were available on Amazon and had over 1,000 reviews. They come in several different colors and sizes and we both got one that was similar to our regular sheet color so when the bed is made you can't even tell it is different. We didn't think the guys would care too much about a silk pillow case, so we just got ourselves one.

The Fisher's Finery silk pillowcases are made from pure 100% Mulberry Silk and also won the Good Housekeeping stamp of approval!  We both love them and really feel like the hair thing is the best because we can wake up and not have to do much to our 2nd day hair.

After loving them so much we also ordered some for our girls because they all have some form of curly hair that becomes super tangled overnight.  This has really helped prevent as many tangles and makes mornings a little bit easier.  For the girls we decided to try satin pillowcases.  They obviously aren't quite as silky smooth, but for them we feel like it was a great alternative at a lower price point.

These Morning Glory satin pillowcases come in a two pack and are available in a ton of different colors and patterns.

We are so curious to hear what you all think?  Do you sleep on a silk pillowcase?  Do you believe the hype like we do?  Let us know in the comments!
